Elaine D. [Oakland, CA; 8/15/2019] [This is an update to a previous review; for the original, see "Super Gwenn!" on 7/30/2012]
I first met Gwenn over 8 years ago, and initially saw her to get over my extreme phobia of dogs. Fast forward to the present, I've actually adopted an adorable senior dog about a year ago, and this total transformation would not have been possible had I not given hypnotherapy a chance. Since then, I've had multiple sessions with Gwenn to address a variety of other challenges (i.e. public speaking, job transitions, family upheavals, etc.), and she has always been compassionate and resourceful. Aside from hypnotherapy, she has other tools in her energetic arsenal, including reiki and mediumship. If hypnotherapy and energy healing sound too "out there" for you, I highly encourage you to approach these modalities with an open mind and an open heart, it may yet work miracles in your life if you let them.
I was a skeptic. Now I am a non-smoker. Gwenn is amazing.
Bruce D. [Belmont, CA; 6/18/2019] This actually works. I went to Gwenn almost 2 years ago to quit smoking. I had been a dedicated, deeply addicted smoker (and closeted to many friends and family members) for over 30 years. I didn't really want to quit, but I told by wife I would, and I knew I should. I powered down my last three cigarettes chain-smoke style before I went upstairs for my session. I haven't smoked since...and I have not had any cravings. There have been times when I have thought, "oh a smoke would be pleasant now" and the thought immediately and quietly leaves my mind. I was a skeptic. Now I am a non-smoker. Gwenn is amazing.
The Anxiety Was Completely Gone
Kirsten W. [San Mateo, CA; 3/4/2019] Gwenn saved me. I had a crazy anxiety attack which went on for over a month. I'd never experienced anything like it and was at a loss. My family had an intervention and I called my MD, who... provided no answers, no suggestions, no help. So I went to Gwenn. After the first session I felt light years better. After a few more, the anxiety was completely gone. Gwenn tailored the sessions to me. She was caring, and most importantly, effective.
You Will Not Regret Working with Such an Amazing Therapist!
S O. [Santa Clara, CA; 10/17/2018] Gwenn is absolutely the best! She is warm, caring, patient and radiates a lot of positive energy. She has been instrumental in helping me understand and learn how to cope with my anxiety. The techniques are invaluable and ones that I continue to use on a daily basis. You will not regret working with such an amazing therapist!
She Is Very Kind and Makes You Feel Very Comfortable
Vanessa C. [Palo Alto, CA; 10/17/2018] I started seeing Gwenn a few months ago and she is someone who I highly recommend. She is very kind and makes you feel very comfortable.
This Lady Is INCREDIBLE!
Lalitha P. [San Jose, CA; 5/18/2018] This lady is INCREDIBLE! I'm always slightly skeptical when I meet a practitioner in this field because I want to make sure they are highly experienced, genuine, and have a caring personality. Gwenn is all this and more. She spends as much time as you need per session and caters it your individual needs. She even records the session and gives you a CD to take home! I've had three sessions with her and feel like a whole new person that is stronger, even more optimistic, and energetic. My friends and family repeatedly tell me how I sound incredibly transformed when they chat with me. Gwen is warm, professional, and a great hypnotherapist with a wonderful sense of humor.
She has now become a forever friend to me and I am so grateful for the time she spent helping me when I needed it the most.
See Gwenn If You Are Looking to Enhance Your Life Happiness!
I recommend Gwenn as a wonderful, soulful sounding board for personal growth. She's kind and caring and has extremely positive energy that makes you feel good, after every session. She's very open to helping out with whatever life brings you, and does a great job providing the tools and wisdom to prevail. Do see Gwenn if you are looking to enhance your life happiness!
Gwen's healing sessions not only rid me of anxiety and a terrible case of tendonitis in my left shoulder and arm, but she also worked magic on my dog's back pain. She is a Reiki master. I have also used her for hypnosis sessions (and the CDs she made me of them) to curb my compulsive overeating. Add to this that she has a joyful personality. I recommend her for help with breaking habits, negative patterns and speeding the healing of injuries.
The Only One Who Has Been Able to Help Me With Chronic Pain
Gwenn is the only one who has been able to help me deal with chronic pain issues. For almost 4 years I've been going to various doctors, trying various remedies, both traditional and alternative, to minimize chronic back and leg pain. Talking with Gwenn and listening to her CDs custom made for me has helped me change my attitude and control the pain just by the way I perceive it. The CDs are just a treat to listen to. At the end of the day they relax me completely and give me a boost of energy for a pleasant and productive evening.
Thank You Gwenn...You Rock!
Yvonne R. [Foster City, CA; 4/21/2014] I was a life-long nail biter. For 30 years I wore acrylic nails to hide my habit. I wanted to stop wearing the fake nails, but my uncontrolled biting was a huge embarrassment. To be clear...it wasn't a little nibble. I bit my nails uncontrollably until they hurt. I tried gloves and sitting on my hands...nothing worked. I was out of control.
It took only ONE visit to Gwenn 3 months ago and I haven't thought about my nails once...except to get beautiful manicures.
She used a tapping method...which at first sounded like hocus pocus but certainly won me over.
Gwenn is a great listener. She can synthesize the issues and using all her skills and education, tailor a perfect approach. She explained in detail what she was going to do and why it would work.
I must admit, I stare at my hands a lot now. I love to reach for things and am so proud of myself.
I'm making my list of other thing I want to work on and will be visiting Gwenn again very soon.
Just wanted to Thank Gwenn Henkel from the bottom of my heart for curing me!
I was dealing with warts on my legs for about 6 years (they spread due to shaving over one wart that eventually turned into hundreds!) from 2002-2008. I saw about 3 different Dermatologist over the years and they tried everything to get rid of them; burning, freezing, injections, lasers, cream and so on. One doctor said it was the worst case of warts he had ever seen, because warts usually only have a lifespan of 2 years, and he could not get rid of them. Every treatment I did with the Dermatologist left my legs red, inflamed and even worse looking. I could not wear shorts, bathing suites, anything that showed my legs. Every time I wore dresses I had to cover my warts with cover-up then wear tights (which I did get made fun of for wearing tights by some people ).
I did not tell any of my friends, only my family knew, because warts are embarrassing. Had to lie over the years why I couldn't go to the beach or when it was hot out why I had to wear pants. I was desperate and started searching the Internet for cures for warts and came across Hypnotherapy. I was so desperate to get rid of them; I would give anything a shot.
I'm so thankful coming across Gwenn Henkel and she literally saved me. I had so much anger towards this skin disease on my legs, she helped me except it and ways to learn how let this anger go toward the warts. Gwenn told me my anger & frustration towards the warts on my legs was keeping them there. She literally hypnotized me and I started listening to a CD she recorded for me every night before bed and within a month or 2 months, THEY JUST DISAPPEARED!!!!!! I could not believe that one day they all just vanished, but that is the truth and I'm thankful for finding Gwenn everyday.
I wish I would have known about Gwenn Henkel earlier. Thank you Gwenn, you helped me get rid of my warts, now I can wear dresses, go to the beach again, have gained all my confidence back, and do not have to go to a dr's office every month for treatments because of you! I'm so grateful to Gwenn.
If you are dealing with a problem I know Gwenn can help you with it.
She is the best!!! She has helped me and my entire family through various issues including: improving overall health, managing stress and anxiety, and achieving breakthroughs with personal goals. I recommend her highly to friends. thanks for all your help Gwenn.
Gwenn and I started working together, while I lived in NYC, and have loved the results I received in my time with her. The tools Gwenn taught me continues on today in my meditation practice and for times when I am challenged - these tools have empowered me and given me strength! Even though I have not "in-person" met Gwenn, her energy and authenticity resonate so clearly - no matter what part of the world I am living in.
I sought out Gwenn during my years in high school. I was facing many obstacles, and tried numerous methods of helping, none of which did, then I found Gwenn. She is such an inspirational person, that will help you overcome anything. Her work involves many things ranging from hypnotherapy, to a spiritual adviser. My experience with her has been over the top amazing! She makes you feel welcome, tells you everything about hypnotherapy, so you're not just sitting there wondering what is going on. An amazing environment. If it wasn't for Gwenn, I would not have become the person I am today. Go and see her, you won't regret it!
P.S. She also has an intuitive awareness class, ask her about it!
I went to see Gwenn to address my weight management issues as well as sleeping disorder and I was rather skeptical about hypnosis, in general, and my personal suggestability, in particular. But, since everything else failed ( diets, exersize, etc), I went anyways - pretty much, out of desperation and not expecting much. To my big surprise - it worked!! My sleep patterns changed after my very first visit to her. I have not taken a sleeping pill for a few months now ( I used to take them every night), and now my weight is slowly coming off - without me even being on any diet at all! Overall, I feel like a different person, well-rested, full of energy and always in a good mood! She is amazing, and I highly recommend her to anyone who tried everything else and is hoping for a miracle at this point - she is a miracle!
I have met with Gwenn now only twice and after just two visits I feel 20 lbs have been lifted from my shoulders. It's been a breath of fresh air meeting with her. I am amazed at how I feel and decided to take her meditation course that has helped me increase my awareness and consciousness to stay present rather than focusing on the past and the future. There's nothing more important than staying present and developing your intuitive energy. I highly recommend taking her course.
[Update: 1/25/2013] I recently had Gwenn "clear" my home. It was amazing and will have her bless future homes I live in. She's professional and made recommendations on what else I could do to attract positive energy. Funny story is that I've had many friends see Gwenn without knowing it. I had an "AHA!" moment with a co-worker/friend that had seen Gwenn years ago without me knowing. She had seen Gwenn to help her with infertility. She struggled for about a year and after seeing Gwenn she's the proud mother of three beautiful children. How amazing is that!? I love Gwenn and recommend her to everyone seeking a little extra love and positivity in their lives.
Gwenn has saved my life. I have been smoking for many, many years and have tried everything to stop. I had two sessions with Gwenn, one for relaxation and the other for smoking. I was so amazed, after walking out of my session, I did not want a cigarette or think of having one. The only problem is food taste so good to me that I will have to set up a session for eating. If you want to change anything in your life, Gwenn is the lady to see.
Gwenn is such a wonderful person. She has completely changed my life for the better. I used to suffer so badly from social anxiety. My cousin had heard about hypnosis and she recommend me to Gwenn. First of all, she makes you feel so comfortable with her. Every time I went to her sessions I felt so relaxed afterwards. I could talk to her about my fears and things that made me nervous. She taught me how to handle my anxiety in such a better way. She will teach you techniques on how to handle your anxiety better. TRUST ME it works. I have learned not to worry so much about the past or the future which I used to do a lot! Just live in the moment. Stay in the present. I would REALLY recommend her to someone who is suffering from anxiety. Please do not be afraid. I know how scary it sometimes feels, but make a change in your life and let Gwenn help you. She has really helped me see life in a different way. THANK YOU so much Gwenn.
I found Gwenn on yelp. I have seen other Hypnotherapists in the past and didn't get much out of it. So naturally I wasn't expecting much. But I was having so much stress and anxiety for several months and was affecting my sleep which in turn affected me physically and mentally.
She put me in to a relaxing meditative trance like state and recorded this onto a CD. I converted it to my mp3 player and listened to it at night before falling asleep. After a week my waking up in the middle of the night began to dissipate. The second week she made me another CD and my sleeping pattern eventually went back to normal. I highly recommend Gwenn, she is very caring and knows her stuff!
Over the last several years, Gwenn has helped me with a lot: Depression, building self-confidence, and even helping me improve my business' bottom line!
From the moment you sit down with Gwenn, you have her undivided attention. She listens to your problems, your likes and dislikes, your "comfort zone," etc. She then incorporates "what makes you tick" into the session. Even better, she records a customized CD customized to you! so you have something to take home with you. I loaded those CDs on to my iPod and listen every day!
I am so grateful to Gwenn and her hypno therapy in treating my fibro. I cannot believe the difference it has made in my life. When I first spoke with Gwenn I had severe pain everywhere, mainly in my neck, my shoulders, my hips, my ankles and my hands. I had been to medical doctors and had gotten no relief from my continual pain and the neck pain and headaches from it were making me miss more and more work. I also was expierencing confusion, forgetting things, not being able to say things that I wanted, feeling all mixed up in my mind, which I now know as Fibro Fog. I also began to run into things, like door ways, my desk, things that I could see and knew were there but could not seem to judge the distance from them. I began to pray for help from this thing that was happening to me and one day a miracle did happen for me as I see it. Gwenn Henkel came into my life. Since the time I started my Fibro hypno therapy sessions with her my life has been changing daily. First off I am a very nervous person and have had a lot of stress to deal with of late and her relaxation therapy started teaching me how to deal with that immediately and learn to live moment to moment. Each day I seem to wake feeling better and better, I no longer have the "Fibro Fog" my thinking is clear, no more running into things, and my pain I just can't put into words, my pain is almost gone. Hardly any Neck Pain or any of the pain I mentioned above except in the mornings I do have some pain in my wrists and hands yet, which subsides during the day. That to will go away I'm sure with more time. If at anytime the pain in my neck starts to come back I have learned thru the sessions how to stop it. I should take a moment here to explain I have never met Gwenn face to face, we met thru an email she had sent me regarding my store on eBay. On the email I saw she was a Master Hypnotherapist and there was a website EntrancingLife.com. Hypno Therapy was something I had heard about and my curiosity was peaked so I visited the website. This is when I found out she worked with Fibro and that she herself had it. We spoke back and forth via email several times and I did speak with her once on the phone, where she explained how things worked to me. The rest has all been done thru emails and CD'S that she sent me thru the mail. She was in California and I in Nebraska, so you see, distance has made no difference. It is absolutely wonderful, I have gotten my life back thanks to Gwenn, I think of her as the angel on my shoulder that God sent me! Terri Fangmeyer Deshler, NE
Basically Gwenn saved my life. I had a three pack a day habit and I could not stop smoking. One trip to see her and I never had a cigarette again. That was about 12 years ago I think?? Its been so long. If you want to quit but can't ..... then see her NOW
I'm a believer! Gwenn is amazing. Along with being very skilled, professional, and experienced at what she does, she has a gift for knowing just how to help you. In these stressful times, when many of us are watching our savings evaporate and worrying about paying bills, SHE IS A GODSEND. Gwenn skillfully teaches you how to use the incredible power of your own mind to deal with whatever unresolved issues you may have which are preventing you from reaching optimal health. The body will not heal if the mind is not on the same track.
I lost my dear father this summer, watching him die a painful and heartbreaking death from lung cancer--with my mother and me close by his side. The sessions with Gwenn and the CD's helped me cope with this, I cannot imagine how I would have gone through this without her help. There are many other ways I could describe how beneficial her assistance has been in improving my life.
If you are leary of hypnotherapy and think it's like "Las Vegas style hocus-pocus", do yourself a favor and just do one session with her. You, too will be amazed at what happens.
Since I live about 1000 miles from Gwenn, she is a person I have known only from emails and DVD's she has personalized and mailed to me. I met her through a friend who lives about 3000 miles away, who recommended her to me when I was at a particularly low point in my life--my husband had just been killed and I was dealing with mountainous debt and children who relied on me. While I would love to work with her face-to-face, I have found that she has virtually perfected a method for reaching out through emails, DVD's and phone calls to people at a distance--her compassion and caring are most obvious, and she is able to discern how to help such that distance doesn't matter. She has a perfect voice--quiet, calm, soothing, gentle, soft, yet persuasive to pull you into the quieting serenity that she can seek for you. I would recommend her most highly--I suggest that if you contact her, you will be both as pleased and intrigued as I was by her the first time we "met" on the internet. I will gladly sign my name, Frances Williams, in Tacoma WA
Provides Healing In a Way That Years of Cognitive Therapy Didn't Help
D Z. [Kingsbury, NV; 7/18/2019] I adore this lady. She is very nurturing and provides healing in a way that years of cognitive therapy didn't address or help. It's been a few years since I have visited her but the tools she gave me are still in practice. Thank you, Gwenn!
I Would Have Sessions With Her Daily If It Was Practical
K M. [Belmont, CA; 7/3/2019] I've had appointments with Gwenn every 1 to 2 weeks for the past 4 months and plan to continue regular appointments with her for the foreseeable future. Through hypnosis and energy healing, she is helping me heal from Multiple Sclerosis (MS). I feel so fantastic after every session with her. I would have sessions with her daily if it was practical.
Around the first of the year, I dropped a dumbbell on my foot which crushed some bones in my foot. After 6 months of not healing, I finally asked Gwenn to focus on my foot during our energy healing sessions. After the first session, my foot was noticeably better and after the second session, it was healed. Next time, I won't wait to ask Gwenn to help me.
In addition to being a great healer, Gwenn is completely open, authentic, unpretentious and a lot of fun. I love Gwenn and my time with her. I'm so glad we were brought together.
I came to consult with Gwenn when I was suffering from unremitting pain and muscular weakness stemming from a rare autoimmune disorder. While I was receiving treatment for the weakness, over a period of months I had exhausted conventional therapeutic approaches for the pain - including a variety of prescription medicines, massage, acupuncture, frequent showers. The pain (neuropathic burning of the skin) was most intense during the evening sleeping hours and was keeping me from sleeping more than 2-3 hours per night. The lack of sleep had profound impacts on my quality of life at home and at work. I sought out Gwenn for hypnotherapy, to assist my being able to sleep - though I had no prior experience of hypnotherapy and was largely ignorant of the benefits I could expect.
Gwenn agreed to take my case and gave me some useful background of hypnotherapy. She took me through the first session of induction in her office, and handed me a CD at the end with the audio portion of the induction narrative - with her request I begin playing this audio at the times when I would want to sleep. At a second visit she gave me a second induction CD. She also applied reiki healing to my body during our sessions, and her hypnotherapy induction and reiki left me vastly improved in my level of pain. Over a period of weeks, listening to her induction recordings during sleep time was helping me achieve increased sleep hours.
On a personal level, I found Gwenn to be a warm caring compassionate person - with a background in western medicine along with hypnotherapy and reiki. I thoroughly enjoyed partnering with her in learning and developing an understanding of how hypnotherapy would benefit me over time. I would recommend Gwenn to anyone looking to improve their control of pain when conventional western medicine approaches may only deliver partial benefit.
Gwen, is in two words, a Miracle Worker! As a non-believer I was skeptical, but as we (both my daughter and I) had tried everything on our own to get her to break a bad habit she's had since birth, I was willing to try this too. In all fairness, my daughter brought hypnotherapy to my attention, so between her own determination and Gwen's magic sessions, she is cured (fingers crossed as it's only been a couple of weeks, but as it was a daily habit, this is HUGE progress!). It took my daughter three sessions to break her habit, which is what Gwen predicted from the get-go. I'm very happy that we went to Gwen and would highly recommend her to anyone who may be a candidate for hypnotherapy.
She Exudes Warmth, Caring, and Positivity
David F. [San Carlos, CA; 12/9/2015] I couldn't recommend Gwenn more highly! She is a person who simply exudes warmth, caring, and positivity. She is such a wonderful healer. And that's partly because she has been there herself, and has overcome so many personal challenges. I came to Gwenn to help with relaxation and sleep issues. She was very helpful with both. And we ended up also focusing on creating the life I want, which has been a very productive process!
I came upon Gwenn's Yelp listing when I was trying to find alternative ways to help me relax. I needed A LOT of help with getting my mind to quiet down so that I could basically stop worrying. I've tried all other conventional ways to relax (prescription drugs, birkam yoga, exercise, meditation, self help books, acupuncture) but nothing worked. I just needed help with getting my thoughts to go to a positive and more calm direction.
Like many people, I was a bit hesitant to try hypnotherapy but Gwenn has such a friendly and outgoing personality that I immediately felt comfortable with her and better at the end of our first session. She explains hypnotherapy in a lot of detail and encourages you to ask questions and comment. Nothing ever felt weird, or wrong during our sessions.
One of the coolest things about my 2nd session with Gwenn is that she recorded our session and gave me a CD that I quickly put in my iTunes account so I can carry it with me everywhere! After trying several hypnosis apps on my iPhone (yes, I was desperate!), my personalized CD from Gwenn is SO MUCH better - her voice is so calming and the CD is tailored just for ME! I try to listen to it everyday. I feel more at peace and more positive which is exactly the results I wanted.
I am heading to my 3rd session soon, which I have no doubt will be great. I am also taking my teenage daughter to see her to help her through the "middle school years". I'll report back with that post the session.
[Update: 10/15/2014] As an update, my 13-yr old daughter went in to see Gwenn, and came out smiling. That was A FIRST! She likes Gwenn and Gwenn was able to take her through a very productive session. She's going back for her second session this weekend. I have no doubt she will gain a more happier outlook on things after seeing Gween a few more times!
My friends are still astounded that, one day I was a smoker and the next day I was not. I had a pack a day habit for 20 years and since June 2012 I have not so much as thought about smoking. Gwenn saved my life. It is truly a remarkable way to quit smoking. Thank you Gwenn!
Gwenn is amazing. I was a three pack a day smoker and went to see Gwen out of desperation. At the time I did not believe that hypnosis would work for me but I had tried everything else. Gwenn guided me through the process and by the end of it I felt like I had a chance. When I walked out the door after our second session I decided to throw away my cigarettes and give it a fair shot. There were times that it was rough but I was able to easily deal with the situations because of the tools that Gwenn gave me. I have been nicotine free for 4 months now and going strong. Even when surrounded by people smoking I do not feel tempted or anxious just proud that I was able to move on. I am confident that I will not find the need to go back to this habit in the future thanks to my own strength and the kind guidance of Gwenn.
It's been almost ten years that I've been seeing Gwenn--and much like the other reviews--she certainly has earned Miracle Worker from me, too. When I first worked with her, it was to use hypnotherapy to help me put my mind to rest, so I can actually get some rest! Who would have thought that it would've worked! Without any sleep pills, I was able to use techniques to help me sleep. That was the first visit! Gwenn has helped me deal with so many things that "trigger" negative habits, including coping with experiences from my past. What I appreciate most about Gwenn is that she truly cares about you and your wellbeing. The woman is truly a gifted healer and all of the healing modalities that she has incorporated into my sessions have come from her intuition and practical means for helping you achieve wellness. I'm a lifelong fan!
Elaine D. [Oakland, CA; 7/30/2012] Super Gwenn! She is a miracle worker, and I do not use those words lightly. She is highly compassionate and intuitive, and has a wonderful sense of humor. :)
I've had the unfortunate experience of having been chased by a rabid dog that almost bit my hand off when I was about 5 or 6. Since then, I've had a non-discriminating fear of dogs - meaning, I was equally afraid of dogs of all shapes and sizes. Being a martial artist, I finally decided that enough was enough and it didn't exactly fit the image to be running away from poodles and other types of dogs, so around March of 2010 I made a session with Gwenn to try to eliminate my doggie phobia (insert technical term here ;)). It was one of the best decisions I had ever made in my life.
Now I'm usually the type who's willing to try something unconventional at least once, but thought field therapy initially left me with a single thought - confused. :-O I was slightly skeptical and apprehensive at first that something which seemed so absurd would actually work; however, following weekend after the therapy session, I was actually able to put it to test while doing some light hiking at Vasona Lake, which can only be described as a doggie haven. I passed by dozens of dogs while walking on the trail by the lake and felt like a huge weight had been lifted off of my shoulders - I could share the trail with them (with only the slightest hesitation in a few instances - mostly reserved for the bigger/more ferocious looking ones) without feeling to urge to panic and stay as far as possible. It was a wonderful experience to experience significantly reduced levels of panic and anxiety being around dogs! In fact, I even managed to look at some of the dogs closely (I suppose some of those smaller ones are actually darned cute when examined up close -- which I never could do before in close proximity ;)).
Since then, I've had the chance to undergo "trial by fire," so to speak, in several different instances. Once in a while, when I encounter an aggressive-looking specimen, I'll feel a twinge of apprehension, but even then, I've managed to stay calm and recall Gwenn's admonitions on how to deal with this particular challenge. Challenge is such a powerful word, I've come to discover - it frames fear in a positive way and makes dealing with it manageable.
I highly recommend Gwenn as a hypnotherapist. Gwenn has a wonderful, caring presence that helps set her clients at ease and a wealth of knowledge on different techniques to draw from in addressing each of her clients' individual needs. Not only did she help me overcome my doggie phobia, but she also took the time to really get to know me to see if there are other areas in my life that hypnotherapy could help address. She has also managed to help me get over my fear of speaking up during meetings, something that has since been helpful in my career (now I wish I'd known this was possible back when I was still in grad school, maybe I would've gotten even better grades ;)).
Gwenn continues to help me deal with challenges to this day as my friend and intuitive adviser. I could not recommend her services more highly.
I Can't Think of Anything Gwenn Can't Help You With
I am so happy to find Gwenn [...] on Yelp. She is such a great Hypnotherapist and healer on so many levels. Gwenn wrote for my magazine, the Peninsula Woman for many years and I learned so much from her articles. My family and I have all been to Gwenn at one time or another, including my grandson when he was ten. Every one of us was able to move on with issues we had been bothered with. My grandson's grades were suffering and he turned that around and became a top level student thanks to her sessions with him. My ex sees Gwenn periodically and he has lost weight and quit smoking. Pretty amazing, if you ask me. I can't think of anything Gwenn can't help you with. Weight loss; quitting smoking; relationship issues; self realization; you name it, she's there for you. Sorry if this sounds like an advertisement, but the truth is, it's all The Truth! Thanks [...] for giving me a venue for expressing how much Gwenn has done for my family through the years!
I Now Know That My Mind Is a Powerful Tool In My Own Healing
When I was 14 years old I was in a serious car accident. I had a broken neck, jaw, cheek, left eye orbit and left hip. They fixed my hip originally by placing two pins in it to keep it together. By the time I was 21, I had to have my first hip replacement. 1989 marked my 10th and last hip replacement. Due to the bone thinning and eroding over time, another hip replacement is not possible. My hip socket bone has eroded so much that it causes the ball of my hip to move around causing me extreme pain. Walking, sitting, standing, bending, all cause pain. I had to take large amounts of pain medication to help me deal with the pain. Once I started using the hypnosis CD's Gwenn sent me, I began feeling a significant improvement and the pain was decreasing and my mind body connection began working for me! If you had told me that I would be using hypnosis for my pain and that it actually worked, I would have laughed at you. Well I am not laughing now! It really works. I keep getting better results each time I use the CD's. Gwenn is a kind and caring person. She has helped me more than any drug. I now know that my mind is a powerful tool in my own healing. Curt R.

I went to Gwenn to help me kick those nasty cigarettes. I was smoking a pack a day and huffing and puffing my way up a flight of stairs. It was awful. I went to one session about 3 weeks ago and I have not smoked or thought about smoking since. I am so so happy as are my husband and son and grandchildren Thank you Gwenn. You are the best!
Gwenn is an amazing force of a woman. Not only is she an inspiration and a source of great wisdom and hope; she also manages to be a friend to those of us who need it most. She is simply the BEST at what she does and I would recommend her without a hesitation to anyone who meant anything to me!
Gwenn has been an amazing support system in my life. I first came to Gwenn about five years ago to work on weight loss using hypnosis because I had tried every other diet, supplement, and pill there was. I was finally able to sustain a weight I was happy with and still am happy with. I have also worked on other issues with Gwenn like anxiety, depression, sleep consistency, and goal realization. She is also guiding and mentoring me with my spiritual growth and development and this work has been the most helpful, enlightening, and purposeful thus far.
Gwenn's knowledge has been consistent since I first met her and she is always open to learning which makes her a great professional. I am positive Gwenn can assist me with just about any problem or obstacle that may appear in my life and if not she knows someone else that can. Gwenn is dedicated to her clients and wants them to be successful in all areas of their lives.
Gwenn is the best hypnotherapist in the Bay Area, and the country (as far as I am concerned). She is a true professional and helped me greatly during a very challenging time in my life. I have been a client for over three years and I highly recommend her to everyone who is need of assistance with stress, depression, addictions, weight loss and more....
Gwenn is magic!! Just listening to her voice alone is the most relaxing experience in itself. I went to her back when I was pregnant with my first child to help reduce anxiety and stress and it really helped my childbirth experience go smoothly. My husband thanks you too and I highly recommend listening to her CDs!! Thanks Gwenn!!
Gwenn is amazing. I suffered from debilitating migraines, insomnia, and wanted to lose some weight. She makes you a CD of the hypnotherapy induction, which I loaded into my iPod. I have listened to my inductions countless times over the years to reduce stress, get a positive attitude, or a mid-day pick me up. The weight loss inductions are wonderful and I still use to this day even though I am now within 10 pounds of my college weight. I hear the music and Gwenn's voice and my body and mind relax immediately. Working with Gwenn is a true pleasure.
An AMAZING Master Hypnotherapist Who Can Treat Just About Anything
I know Gwenn as a friend and a professional working with her for 1+ years. She is an AMAZING Master Hypnotherapist who holds the highest of professionalism and can treat just about anything. The first time I saw Gwenn as a patient I was going though a hectic time in my life (getting married and moving) every single thing would irritate me whether it be the crazy drivers on the roads or some one who talked to long on the phone. After one visit with Gwenn I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders, I had a different more positive outlook on day to day life. It has been quite some time since I have had a truly negative thought and when I can feel those thoughts coming along, I use the techniques she taught me to help curb those thoughts. As a professional working in the same office as Gwenn, I was able to speak to many of her clients and ask what they thought and how things were coming. Most of the reactions I got were "I don't know what I did before I met Gwenn" or "I have seen many medical Dr.'s without results and Gwenn hit the nail on the head". Whether it be a shopping addiction, weight control or any aspect in life Gwenn can help! I would recommend Gwenn and her services to anyone of my close family members and friends. Expect Results!
We Are An Ocean Apart, But It Didn't Stop Her
John L. [Hamble-le-Rice, United Kingdom; 2/24/2009]
I was first introduced to Gwenn via an email friend who knew of her work with hypnotherapy and put us in touch.
Via email Gwenn took many details about me and my smoking habit and prepared a personalised "Stop Smoking" CD. It was great, she speaks in a very calming and authoritative tone and the CD included tips for reinforcing the therapy. My thought was if she could do it for me just on a CD I wonder what it would have been like to meet her? We are an ocean apart but it didn't stop her, it stopped me. LOL
Gwenn is AWESOME! She has been working with me on a few different things. She has done hypnotherapy with me for balance, sleep, and weight loss. I do not live near her but we are able to communicate easily and conveniently through email, and telephone. She creates personalized CD's for me and sends them via US Mail.
Since I began working with Gwenn in December, I have lost over 30lbs and I find myself in a much more positive state of mind every day. I look forward to "my" quiet time for daily meditation.
I also had surgery on my wrist in the month of January. Gwenn did Reiki healing for me (from a distance). When I went in for my 2 week check up (exactly 2 weeks after my surgery), I asked the doctor if the way my incision looked was normal. (To me it seemed to be very healed for such a short amount of time.) The doctor told me that the way that it looked at 2 weeks was normally the way it looks at 6 weeks.
Like I said, Gwenn is AWESOME!!!
Gwenn is very friendly and easy to communicate and work with. I highly recommend her.
I am in the process of putting together a television show that revolves around balancing your life, health, and fitness. Once we are rolling she will be featured on our show weekly.
Gwenn is a warm, professional and effective hypnotherapist. Yes, it really works! I would highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about changing their habitual behavior in order to lose weight, stop smoking, end phobias, etc.
Gwenn Henkel is a hypnotherapist and does a great job for those with stress, depression, addictions, weight, sleep issues and more. I was introduced to Gwenn via a mutual client. I did some hypnotherpy work with her to fix my issues :) and realized that this was an important variable that we did not address with my personal training clients. After that session, I asked her to join me at the Optimal Fitness Lifestyle Center and for the last 2 years we have worked wonders as a team. I refer my most difficult clients who have struggled with weight loss and those that need to change their habits by changing their mind.
