I Was Frightened of Elevators
My Cold Hands Kept Me Up at Night
Couldn’t Stop Negative Thoughts
Stopped Fear of Speaking in Public
WEIGHT LOSS "The mind-body connection is such an AMAZING thing! Hypnosis is a wonderful, safe way to connect with yourself on a much deeper level. You do have the power to change, and it lies within! Wendy is an awesome hypnotherapist – she gets right at the heart of your issue and her voice is so relaxing and soothing! A really great experience overall!"
FOOD ISSUES "Wendy is a very warm and nonjudgemental person who makes you feel completely at ease. The experience was an overwhelmingly positive one. I saw results right away and I continue to use the insights and techniques I learned to improve myself and my attitudes. I felt very comfortable and at ease even though I had to open up about some pretty personal stuff. I was also able to see results rather quickly when I expected it would be a slower process. It almost seemed too easy!"
FEAR OF FLYING "Thanks very much for spending so much time with me. The session was very helpful –- not that I didn’t think it would be; I just didn’t know what to expect. I’m really starting to look forward to my trip. Instead of thinking, 'Maybe the flight won’t be bumpy,' I’m thinking, 'It most likely will be bumpy; how am I going to choose to react?' and that makes me feel much better."
"I’ve been a hypnotherapist for 8 years and my practice has me living on both coasts. My mentor was a former president of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis in NJ. By all accounts, I was successful but felt deep down something was missing in my work and I wasn’t the best I could be.
"Wendy’s class was AMAZING! She has such a special and beautiful manner of teaching. Through all of my years of graduate training, I can honestly say she is one of the best teachers I’ve encountered. She truly has a gift of educating others in such a simple and enjoyable way. As a clinical psychologist, I’ve been able to use tools that I’ve learned in her training to get wonderful results. Her genuine nature proves to encourage and reassure while naturally dispelling fears and doubts. She is subtly but strongly inspirational. I’ve taken other hypnosis classes before but none compare to her ability to integrate the knowledge, motivate to practice and spread the gift that is hypnosis!" - Catherine H., Wayne, PA
"I’ve lost 28 lbs, 10% body fat and overcame some social awkwardness to begin building friendships with my fitness class teammates. We now eat healthy the majority of the time and are feeling really good. I’m putting together written goals and pursuing them with confidence this year rather than an attitude of failure and skepticism (“it won’t work for me”) before I’d even start in years past." - D.H. Philadelphia
"After our sessions, I interviewed very well and very confidently at 3 separate companies and even made a tough decision to turn one down instead of groveling to be there. I landed the position at the top of my list with a great company and held up very well during the interview process with the most impressive (and potentially intimidating!) executive team I’ve seen." - David K, Philadelphia
"I have spent years hiding behind emails and doing all that I can to avoid these types of situations and it has hurt my career. I was definitely skeptical, but as you will remember, I was very distraught at the thought of suddenly having to address a board of VP's at a large multi-million dollar company that is nationally known.
"Everything went great when I presented last night. It helped that only 5 people showed up but regardless I did my presentation and I wasn't that nervous at all. People told me what a good job that I did and how well prepared I was. Thank you so much for helping me through that whole process." - Trisha R, Bryn Mawr, PA
"I’m back from FL and crushed my speech last week!!!! Thank you so much for all your help...we’ve been setting up meetings all week since I’m back! I look forward to continuing to work together! - Brandon R, Villanova, PA
"Helped me get over my fears about flying."
"I've always been into the mental side of sports performance and was hoping Wendy could give me some new techniques to help with my own visualizations. She went above and beyond. Took the time to discuss exactly what I was looking for, discussed how I would get there and helped me maintain that thought process so that I continue on and reach my goals. Last year I signed with a professional indoor lacrosse team, unfortunately due to a labor strike, I was released. This past year I used her techniques on my own and recently signed with another team. Had my last couple sessions to reaffirm my mindset and confidence, will be making the active roster soon. I will continue to use her techniques to keep my focus on the goal I am still in the process of achieving but also will use them to help in other aspects of my life." - George Downey, PA
"I did my Hypnotherapy training with Wendy Merron through the Center of Success 6 years ago. It was a thorough, hands-on experience that allowed me to confidently begin helping people right away. I had a background in hypnosis before I started The Center of Success course because I teach Hypnobabies, a hypnosis for childbirth program. I used it for my own births with great success. The Center of Success Hypnotherapy program deepened my understanding of the tools and techniques I teach and enabled me to address other issues that sometimes arise. There are so many applications for hypnosis both personally and professionally. It has been a great gift to acquire the skills and experience that I gained from this course." - Karen Zamperini, Wayne, PA
Wendy made the whole subject of hypnosis come alive for me as she shared her vast personal experience with the class. She gave each student a lot of feedback and personal attention as well as ideas on how we could best use our certifications in building new careers or enhancing our current life’s work with these tools. This hypnosis cl well worth the time.
CAN'T SWALLOW PILLS "Thank you Wendy SO much for giving me a confidence within myself that I don't know if I have ever had, for ridding me of my anxiety, and for curing my pill phobia!! I really owe you my life for this and I am forever grateful. You will remain in my thoughts for the rest of my life, that's for sure!"
MOTIVATION TO EXERCISE "I wanted to let you know that the exercise work we did had an unbelievable and immediate impact. I have done 7 workouts of 25 - 35 minutes each since we met which was 11 days ago. I can't explain it and don't need to - I can only report and unbelievable difference in my attitude which created change in my life. Thank you!!!!!
"The techniques that you taught and shared with me really helped me in calming my fears about a new and unfamiliar experience, particularly testifying in a court case. Participating in hypnotherapy eliminated some the stress and nervousness I had associated with speaking in front of a jury, being cross examined by another attorney, and hearing about what is "I did and did not do. Because of experience at the Center for Success I was able to remain calm, competent, professional, and poised on the stand and demonstrated so much lack of fear. In turn, I myself felt pretty confident afterward which is something I rarely felt. The best part of this experience is that I will be able to continue to use these techniques in my everyday life to help me with stress reduction, insomnia, anxiety and pain management."
TRICHOTILLOMANIA - HAIR PULLING "Was thinking of you this afternoon, thinking if I lived closer, I’d come by to give you a hug. I’m feeling better, more relaxed and enjoying having a better tool/behavior in place of the old one, and so I wanted to thank you for being so open and understanding. Every time we meet, I feel like you “get” what I’m experiencing and not just how to help."
SLEEP BETTER "Last night I used what I learned in your Drift Into Sleep webinar last night for my two 6 year olds...they were asleep in minutes! When my daughter (who is usually a great sleeper) has trouble sleeping, I remind her about the jars and she falls asleep fast too. Thank you!"
SPORTS IMPROVEMENT (BOSTON MARATHON) "Wendy, I did it!!! The 1st 20 miles was fairly easy and went seemingly fast. The last 6 were tougher but had my husband to keep me company. The last .2 went very fast as the crowds were tremendous at the finish line ( they were really heavy throughout the entire run) and I could see the finish line which added propulsion to my legs. I ran virtually pain free."
FEAR OF SPEAKING IN PUBLIC "I just arrived from our Toastmasters meeting: Digerati Toastmasters Club, Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Thank you very much for the MP3 that helped me feel calm and relaxed. If I were going to compare myself the first time I spoke, my heart was pounding fast and I was not relaxed. But today when the Toastmaster of the day called by name, I felt more relaxed and comfortable speaking in front of the group. Once again! Thank you very much!"
SPORTS IMPROVEMENT SWIMMING 16 yr old. "I have some good news about Senior Champs! In my 400 Free, and 400 Medley relay, I went my fastest times out of the whole season in both! But the best part is, my medley team broke the record! I now have senior record even thought Im not a senior! The hypnosis and tapping really worked!"
HYPNOSIS TO GET PREGNANT "I just wanted to say thanks for all your help and let you know that I'm 5 weeks pregnant. So yes, hypnosis works! The two week wait was a nightmare but finally last Monday I had my blood test and everything shows that our baby is well. I'll keep my fingers crossed so that everything goes well. I'll keep you posted and I can only hope to go back to Philly to continue coming to see you. Thanks again and good Luck!"
SPORTS IMPROVEMENT - GOLF "Just wanted to let you know that my golf season has just started and I actually won the first event yesterday shooting a 70! My putting has improved measurably!"
STOP SMOKING "I am doing well; more specifically, I am amazed at how well I am doing. Not one cigarette. No desire. I really did not anticipate that."
FEAR OF FLYING "Hi Wendy, it's me, Kieran. I've been really busy on vacation but anyway, I made it through the plane flight. I was scared before take off but after we got in the air, I was okay! So all in all I guess I did pretty good!"
WEIGHT LOSS and EMOTIONAL EATING "I can't even begin to tell you how much better I feel. What happened today was amazing. However, I do remember you saying that when I walked out that everything would seem brighter and then thinking, "Highly unlikely to happen today!" And then when you said I eat less and feel satisfied, I did the sing-song thing in my head. Interesting to know that my quirky sense of humor is intact in hypnosis."
AGORAPHOBIA "Thank you for the session today. Just returned from the supermarket ! It went really well. John noticed that my body language was much calmer and I didn’t appear jittery. I didn’t feel the compulsion to flee the supermarket, so I was not having the normal internal dialogue with myself trying to override the flight response. There were a couple of challenging moments but these did not derail me in the way they would have done in the past. For the first time today, I didn’t feel triggered to anger while waiting in the queue at the checkout because the compulsion to flee was not there so the fight response did not kick in."
SPORTS IMPROVEMENT- TENNIS 14 year old "I wanted to let you know that yesterday was a very successful day in terms of my serve! During match play, I picked a spot in the service box and repeated to myself “I like the idea that my serve goes THERE.” Then, I imagined the ball landing in that place…and the results were amazing! Almost every time I practiced this, my serve landed where I imagined it to- and get this- I was no longer double faulting!"
NAIL BITING "Three years ago I had three sessions of hypnosis to get over my worst habit - biting my nails and picking my toenails. I bit for 50 years and I never thought I could stop. I wanted to tell you that it's been over three years and I have not bitten my nails once. My nails and toes look so good and I'm so happy. Every day I look at my nails and I smile!"
FEAR OF FLYING "I wanted you to know that I had good flights both to and from Denver in October. I was/am very excited. I am now using the same tools to lose weight. Every morning and evening I repeat 10 times that I love losing weight, I eat well, drink lots of water, exercise and I feel great."
"I was thinking about you and how well I have been living since I took your course. EFT has been a blessing! I use it every day and it really works to set me right and on the right path."
STOP EMOTIONAL EATING & WEIGHT LOSS "I just wanted to thank you for sharing your knowledge with me; it really stuck. I've been eating more live foods and get this, no sugar, no cookies, no candy. Amazing for me, especially around the holidays. I've lost six pounds in about a month, of course working and moving all day helped. "
HAIR PULLING - TRICHOTILLOMANIA "I am SO excited that my hair is growing. It feels incredible especially after struggling for over 15 years! I've tried so many other techniques that I almost gave up. I love your approach. It has permanently changed my mindset and I am so grateful. Thank you!"
"Hi wendy, don't know if you remember but I saw you for fertility hypnosis at the end of 2011. I wanted to let you know that I had a beautiful healthy baby boy. I wanted to thank you for everything. You really helped me through so many difficulties."
"Hi! I made it to Italy and back!! I did so great flying and being away. Thank you for helping me experience the trip of a lifetime!!"
"I wanted to share with you how different I feel today yet, I cannot specifically put a characteristic tag to it. There is no real desire for wine at night. And today I was able to work through a frustrating emotion and get a positive result. All the issues I wanted to work on are being worked on. I sincerely thank you for the help you are giving me through this process. I know I am getting better and better every day. - Sharon, age 42, NJ
