Testimonials

"Carla has the amazing ability to put anyone at ease with her calm voice and warm nature. Carla was working with me on creating a virtual gastric band as well as making me feel more positive about who I am, regardless of weight. The impact of Carla's sessions have been remarkable. I no longer feel like a slave to food but rather I am now in control."

- Josh, Vice Principal, Hong Kong

"Carla brings a wealth of knowledge to her sessions including her medical background and nutritional knowledge. She identified where my weaknesses were and reassuringly guided me to deal with those in an encouraging and nurturing way. I would whole-heartedly recommend Carla as a practitioner and feel her holistic approach and life experience is second to none."

- Danielle, Hong Kong

As a health practitioner also, I was impressed by Carla’s use of and reference to evidence-based guidelines, best practice and research, as well as her consideration for holistic care, not to mention her intuitive guidance and direction.

Carla’s gentle nature and calming presence helped me to feel at ease and in an environment of trust, and allowed me to share my inner quarrels with bulimia, an extensive history of being bullied and the near loss of our baby boy. Carla, respecting my fear and vulnerability, absorbed my turmoil and trauma without judgment and I felt confident then to focus on resolution and healing.

Hypnotherapy with Carla helped me work on breaking down and clearing blockages and anchors that continued to reinforce negative and unhelpful actions.

Carla radiates a beautiful energy."

“Since I had my sessions, I have noticed that I am now a lot more motivated to reinstate better health practises not just for me but for my family too. I am now back on the better path of getting healthier mentally and physically and my weight has steadily been approaching back to my optimum level.”

"After struggling with test and study anxiety for much of my time at university, having the support from Carla helped instil confidence in my abilities as I approached my final exams. I feel like I performed better than ever and felt much more calm and prepared than I have been in the past. Thank you Carla!"

"I loved the whole process and felt safe and supported the whole way through. I was quite nervous going in as I'd never been hypnotised before. Carla explained everything well and I felt really comfortable. I feel like I've gained control over my eating. I also feel like I'm starting to sleep better and have more energy - I just feel more positive overall."

"Although I was slightly unsure at first, Carla explained the whole process to me and answered all my questions so that any apprehension or uncertainty quickly vanished. During the hypnotherapy itself, I felt relaxed and calm as Carla talked me through each stage. I was truly amazed at how good I felt the next day! It was remarkably sudden like a light bulb had been switched on; I was able to clear my mind and focus on the important aspects of my life again, something I had not been able to do for several weeks prior to this. I felt truly healed. Her calm words remain with me to this day, several months later, and I cannot thank her enough for supporting me through that difficult time in my life. I am a completely changed woman for it and would recommend (and have done!) her and her wonderful work to everyone.""

"My interactions with Carla were multifaceted exploring in-depth and reaching across many areas of her clinical and professional practice – hypnotherapy, midwifery and paediatric knowledge. This alone, her extensive skill base, compassion and commitment to supporting her client's needs is enough to share my recommendation, though her ability to help you feel safe, understood and truly heard are further qualities that so simply radiate from Carla and her client centred approach, I cannot speak more highly."

"I approached Carla when I was desperate to quit smoking - I had been smoking for 22 years. Carla was friendly, positive and very approachable and arranged a meeting with me very quickly. During my meeting with Carla I found the session to be very relaxing and comfortable. She spoke to me clearly about the process and what was about to happen. The actual hypnotherapy was incredible. Having been a smoker for most of my adult life I was beginning to feel like I would be stuck forever, but immediately that feeling of "sparking up a cigarette" had vanished. Carla has helped me conquer my habit with just one half an hour session! I am so over it I feel like I have been a non-smoker my entire life! Carla also offered me extra support after the session which I haven't needed, I haven't had a single cigarette craving!
Thank you so much, Carla I am a healthy, happy and energetic mother to my 18 month old son thanks to you!"

"Leading up to my exams, I chose to see Carla and try hypnotherapy to support my studies. Carla used techniques on me that have been unbelievably useful and assisted my approach to the upcoming tests. I listened to the recordings as prescribed and found my eagerness to study was unusually high to say the least. I approached the exams with confidence and felt her saying “you’ve got this” before each exam.

Carla’s support, encouragement, background and empathy are second to none and her adaptability to providing support to her clients on an individualised basis is incredible! My stress levels were significantly reduced during this process and I feel this hypnotherapy did in fact get me across the line. My results were 92% and 100% in each exam and my field of studies is entirely outside of my background of work. Thank you!"

"Carla worked with my daughter to help her with her stress and anxiety for tests at school. Now almost a year later I want to let you know that she has gone through such a transformation. Of course, she is still stressed about her exams but is much more capable of handling and canalising them. After summer she is going to boarding school overseas, a process in which she took complete ownership of and has thrived. She has been so confident and glowing. She managed to land multiple offers and was able to present herself without fear or insecurity. Life will never be without challenges but it’s all about how you deal with them. I just wanted to let you know that I guess you really have planted a seed with your treatment and it ripples through. Thank you."

"The Sleeptalk® process gave me the opportunity to help my ten year old daughter build her confidence and self-esteem in a most unique and satisfying way. Throughout the program my daughter’s concentration also gradually improved. I would recommend any parent to give it a go!"

"Carla’s Virtual Gastric Band program put me back on the path of healing. I had been stress eating, putting other people’s well-being before my own and I was suffering for it. The blend of Carla’s experience as a nurse and as a hypnotherapist is gold! She’s direct and at the same time caring, she’s thought-provoking and thoughtful, and she has your best interest at heart. I’m no longer grazing all day, I’m eating consciously and healthier. The added bonus to my sessions was that Carla was open in sharing her own journey and suggested various supplements to assist me with other health issues. I highly recommend you explore Carla’s services. I guarantee you won’t regret it.

 

Thank you, Carla! Your wisdom and dedication were very much appreciated."

"Recently, our son had multiple surgeries that were both emergency in nature and unexpected. Carla performed hypnotherapy on our son, which was designed to put his mind at ease throughout the process and also minimise pain experienced physically by him, both during and post-surgery. Our son’s fears were allayed and he positively entered the theatre for his operation. Post-surgery, he was comfortable and complete in the knowledge that he wouldn’t be experiencing the pain he had prior to surgery and his emotional and physical healing was, in my opinion, accelerated by the hypnotherapy. He seemed relaxed and satisfied after his hospitalisation and recovered unbelievably well.

 

Carla explained the process to him in an age-appropriate way and her nursing and paediatric background cemented our confidence that she would be leading him into the surgery and post-operative treatment with experience and knowledge that was crucial to us. Her extensive medical background also tremendously benefited us in what he was going through medically.

 

I wholeheartedly recommend Carla, as she can adapt the hypnotherapy treatment to your needs and was hugely successful for us and our outcomes for our child during what was an extremely difficult and challenging time for our family."

- Mother, Hong Kong

"Carla has herself studied extensively in several fields of expertise, so can fully understand the commitment and dedication required by a successful student.I would wholeheartedly recommend Carla Pahl Hypnotherapy for anyone from children, adolescents, college-age individuals, or mature age students who wish to support their studies to achieve academic success.    I wish Carla the very best in her practice and believe those that use her services will naturally thrive in their studies."

"Today my daughter and I went to the dentist and I was dumbfounded! She sat there with the biggest smile on her face, did everything the dentist asked of her, had radiographs and cleaning and said she is very much looking forward to her next check-up. Just incredible! I cannot thank you enough. It was such a u-turn the dentist has asked me for your details should she have other patients as anxiety-ridden as my daughter was. Just brilliant! Thank you so much."

"I recently had Hypnotherapy sessions with Carla Pahl to address some weight issues I was experiencing. I was unsure what to expect as the term Hypnotherapy conjures up some unusual thoughts in terms of swinging clocks and visual trickery. To my surprise, I was easily and comfortably “put under” and each session was calm and healing. My objective of losing weight and feeling more full of vitality and strength was reached with minimal effort and I looked forward to each day when I would listen to Carla’s soothing voice guiding me through this process. The first week passed by and my desire to unnecessarily eat food was gone and my energy levels were quickly increasing. By week two I was astounded by my decreased food intake and I had absolutely no triggers of hunger. It truly defied logic! The weight was falling off as each week passed with minimal effort. Carla had psychologically reversed programming I wasn’t aware of that I had received as a child and effortlessly installed new thoughts about food.  I now have more energy and vitality and have not returned to my initial weight.
Carla treated me as an individual and was intuitively able to recognise my weaknesses and redirect my behaviours to better options. I was in very safe hands with Carla during the treatment and have gone from strength to strength since completing it. I live an exhausting life and now have more energy and power to move forward. Trust is a very important component of any treatment programme and I thoroughly trust Carla with Hypnotherapy."
