Hypnosis Success Stories Over The Years

I've worked with thousands of people over the years to help them experience a deep, cellular level of healing, personal growth and success in many different areas of their lives and careers. It's not unusual for clients to come to me with one issue in mind and then leave with healing and growth in all other areas of their life.

Sarah came to me for her “crippling fear of flying” at least ten years ago. Not only did we help her overcome her fear, here she is skydiving! She went on to create a very successful business as “The Five Foot Traveler!”

Rhyan used to have to be held down by 2 adults while she was kicking and screaming getting shots. Here she is, ever so calmly getting her flu shot!

Kristen suffered panic attacks, anxiety, insomnia and unexplained physical issues for a year until she came to work with me.

“Stephanie was a key factor in my ability to move out of a debilitating pattern of daily panic attacks. I worked with her for three months, and since the beginning of that process I have been panic attack free (almost a year). She is an empathetic listener and provided tools for me to use daily to stay on track.”

Alison had a fear of driving on the highway. Here she is, after driving 50 miles to see her sister – FOR THE FIRST TIME IN TEN YARS!

I was so surprised that in just a short period of time She was able to teach me techniques that I now use every single day.

She helped me to let go of things that I cannot control.  I let go of past guilts that were dragging me down.  She helped me focus on the important things, without all of the other “junk” in my way.

When I find my self starting to struggle, now I stop employ one of her techniques and I am able to calm down, relax instead of working myself up into a state, but instead I know I can tackle the job at hand, without all of the anxiety.

Working with her has been a life-changing positive experience for me.

I reached out to Stephanie because I've been living with a constant low level of anxiety and for quite some time had been waking up with panic attacks every morning. I have tools I implement to manage anxiety - I already do breathing exercises and meditation daily and have cleared out a lot of childhood baggage.

 I was a bit skeptical as to what additional tools Stephanie could offer but decided to give it a shot because I clearly needed something more than what I was doing! In one session we cleared out a memory from when I was two years old that I had been carrying around and didn't even consciously remember. That combined with attaching the state of relaxation with an object I wear has made all the difference!

The chronic anxiety is completely gone and when I feel my stress start to rise, I just touch my object and relax. I'm so grateful to have met Stephanie and cannot recommend her enough!


In September of 2019, I had my first full blown panic attack. I had been experiencing some strange physical symptoms and was at the beginning of my journey through anxiety. I frequently visited my general practitioner, my gynecologist, a neurologist, an ENT specialist, a chiropractor and a medical massage therapist. After two MRIs, a carotid artery ultrasound and multiple nose scopes, it was determined that “nothing was clinically wrong with me.” That was impossible for me to believe when my life was a constant barrage of hot flashes, migraines, sinus pressure, sever neck pain, sleepless nights, and constant anxiety. It was lightly suggested that I was anxious, and experiencing menopausal symptoms, and I was given an option to try medication. One day of pills revealed every side effect in the book, and left me feeling out of options.

On a sleepless night as I scrolled through Instagram trying to come to terms with my anxiety (and grasping at straws for help) I stopped on post about menopause. Through some sort of divine intervention or what most people would consider dumb luck, I managed to see a reference to Stephanie Dalfonzo and her tips for dealing with an anxious mind.

As I dug a little deeper Stephanie’s personal story compelled me to buy her book, and after devouring the content I reached out to her for a consultation. I felt like I had finally found someone with personal experience who could truly understand what I was going through, and help me find some quality of life.
I was right!! After one session with Stephanie I had a significant improvement in my ability to fall and stay asleep, and after subsequent sessions I am well on my way to improved overall wellness. Being able to sleep has had a monumental impact on my ability to minimize my anxiety and finally have some room to heal. Every week I feel better and better.

I am so grateful for Stephanie’s enthusiasm for hypnotherapy, and her commitment to helping women feel their best. She has guided me through the absolutely worst time in my life, and the process has been filled with magic and miracles. As an added bonus, my sister works with Stephanie and that has lead to improvements in our relationship.

If you are looking for any kind of personal improvement, Stephanie has a personalized approach to inner change that I truly believe is possible for everyone.

"Working with Stephanie was an eye-opening experience. As a coach, she brings the calm and helps you to uncover and move past what overwhelms you. Sometimes what you think is at the root of your stress or upset is not really the cause. Stephanie takes you on a deeper journey to self-discovery and freedom. Through Stephanie, I also learned some of the best techniques to combat stress, which I use daily. Her book, Goodbye Anxiety, Hello Freedom, is a must-read and a resource that I'll always keep closeby."

You are so special. Thank you Steph!!!

I am a 62-year-old male. For the last six or seven years I had developed a fear of stairs and heights. I could  not get up or down the staircases in my home. On those days I would crawl up the stairs and come down on my rear-end like a 15-month-old toddler. This fear was interfering with my life. With the agreement of my physician, I decided to try hypnosis. I contacted Stephanie Dalfonzo. She was encouraging, helpful, knowledgeable, professional, and patient. I can now navigate the stairs in my home without the gripping fear I lived with for so long. I should have done this years ago. I am also proud that I conquered this fear. Hypnosis and Stephanie work!! Try them  --DGB, Ridgefield

I can’t even begin to describe the impact that Stephanie and her work have had on me, my life, and ultimately, my family. I mean, I can… but I won’t do her justice. Stephanie taught me how to center myself; how to not listen to the negative self-talk in my head, how to calm myself when I feel like that’s not even possible, how to deal with my often misplaced emotions. Although I worked with Stephanie directly over 7 years ago, I use the tools she taught me daily. She helped me get through personal trauma then, and professional drama now. She’s an amazing human being with a huge heart and a beautiful soul. If you suffer - from anything - get in touch with her!

"My Life Was Transformed That Day…

You showed me that I had the power within me to make the biggest change of my life, and I am forever grateful to you. My life was transformed that day…

I felt empowered and able to do anything I set my mind to. You showed me what I was capable of doing. What ANYONE is capable of doing if they want to. I sing your praises to everyone, we ALL have the ability to make powerful, and positive changes, and thank God there are people like you to unleash our inner beasts!

Just as you also did with my brother and sister-in-law!! You have not only helped me, but, helped people I love. Priceless."

"Brings Out The Best In Whoever She Works With…

Stephanie is one of those gifted individuals whose energy, compassion and talent combine, in a powerful way, to bring out the best in whoever she works with. One of my star pupils, she is destined to be a leader in the field."

- Melissa Tiers, D.C.H. and National Guild of Hypnotists Instructor

"Extremely Unique and Quite Effective…

Bless you, bless you, bless you Stephanie, you are extremely unique and quite effective! I have to admit, that your method was a short cut for me and laser’d in on helping me with the anger when talk therapy wasn’t able to. Shhhhh, I would never tell my therapist this!

Things happen for reasons and you came into my life for profound reasons! Use anything I say about you because it’s sincere and from the heart."

- Sherry Kottler

"I highly highly highly yes three-times.... Recommend working with Stephanie.

I had the opportunity to work with Stephanie on two occasions within two days and I've never met a woman with a powerful comforting presence as she projects. You know instantly how available her heart and soul are for you and present in that very moment of working with her. She was able to walk me through with questions and eye contact with an open ear through my frustration with a business matter and a personal matter."

- Susan Vernicek

"Great Source of Support For Years to Come…

Thank you so much for helping me with my blocks and doing it so gently... I noticed that a peaceful feeling came up and not one of angst… I have found a great source of support for years to come."

- Cathy Haine

Ok so I guess this stuff works. Played golf yesterday …felt great

Played with my friend kevin and two strangers…never had a feeling of any anxiety.

The best 9 hole score I’ve had since that day at Middlebury was probably a 46…I shot 42 yesterday on the font. Putted well all day…all of my second shots for the most part were great. Had a couple bad holes on the back 9 (shot 51) but that was purely bad golf …never got upset never succumbed to the pressure.

The suggestions worked and will continue to reinforce them. Finally had fun playing again!

"Tripled Her Business...

I came to work with you because a mutual acquaintance said she worked with you and the next year she tripled her business!"

- A.L. (BTW this client came back to again triple her business!)

She has the expertise, experience, professionalism and drive to make her one of the best intuitive life coaches I have ever had! She has so many tools to use to help you succeed – from the unconscious to “nuts and bolts” – you’ll get it all. Then she has the methods to motivate and keep you on task. Most importantly for me is that she is intuitive so she can really tap into to what I personally need and want. She is worth the investment! I highly recommend her!!"
