What Some Have Said About
Working With Dianne

“Because of profound chemical sensitivity and a sever reaction to any antibiotics I might take, I needed to seek alternative methods for healing cellulites the bacterial infection I was struggling with. I was in a panic and severely depressed. Nobody thought I wouldn’t survive, even my doctor, as I found out later. My leg was swollen and puffy. It looked red as if it had been burned. After our session, and within less than a half an hour, the redness and swelling began decreasing.” -A., MFT

“A joint in my foot had been hurting for years when I would walk. It was becoming arthritic, enlarged and changing shape. Sometimes the pain was sharp and sometime dull and always tiring to experience. Within a couple of sessions, the pain disappeared totally! We were able to alleviate the pain without my having to take any medication! It’s now four years later.” – L.A.

“Just quickly this morning, I wanted to let you know of how much I “appreciated” (my message) our session yesterday. I left with a new wonder about my life and a curiosity of what is to emerge. Much of my life has been in crisis mode but that is no longer the way I feel or even think.
Thank you for healing, teaching and supporting me yesterday and for the feeling of being connected to you always.” – R.B., CHT

“I really enjoyed the telecourse. It was packed with valuable information. Dianne has gathered an impressive variety of pain healing techniques for anyone who is coping with physical pain (like me) or for someone who wishes to learn transformative techniques to work with the public. Thanks for including consciousness in the course. I can’t get enough of it. I earned an MA in Consciousness Studies three years ago.
Dianne is gifted with a very healing hypnotic voice that easily put me into deep trance. I also appreciate her lively sense of humor!” – K.F.B., CHT

“I love this course very much. This is definitely one of the most useful and practical courses that I have taken in recent years. Dianne has stated very clearly on how to apply each technique during the course and also in the handouts. It makes me memorize the process of each technique easily without the need to look at the handout while applying them. I have also learned so much from Dianne’s scripts as well as her soothing tones during the course. By listening to Dianna’s voice, it always reminds me to speak slower and more gentle when talking to people especially to my clients.” – Shat Pin Michelle Pang, C.Ht.

“I just want to say Thank You so much for making this course so enjoyable, inspiring, simple and relaxing! I enjoyed the class from the first free teleseminar, and felt so easily hypnotized by Dianne’s beautiful speaking voice and kind demeanor! More of the same feelings continued in the class and along with that was the added dimension of participating in class discussions to share what we had learned and this was fun and made it more dynamic and alive!
Dianne’s gentle demeanor and excellent techniques, all of which are so helpful in a myriad of ways, have made my work as a Counselor , Hypnotist and Healer, that much deeper and more profoundly effective. Thank you again for your help and your generosity!” – Claudia J. Miller, MA

“Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and teaching this lovely and valuable class on Powerful and Effective Techniques for Relieving Pain. It was a pleasure listening to you each week on the recordings. You provided a lot of techniques, tips and suggestions to strengthen and enhance my clients’ sessions and you motivated me to try new things. I appreciated the valuable discussion on Chakras and keeping them clear and not so open, too. Much appreciation!” – Annette Foster, Cht

“The way that Dianne speaks is truly music to one’s ears. She has a way about her that just has to be experienced to understand.” – Amy Jerome, C.Ht.

“Highest praise. I loved listening to Dianne on each call – so well prepared, so knowledgeable, so generous with her time, expertise and wisdom. As she teaches, you can feel the depth of her experience and knowledge. Most importantly, I am an experienced hypnotherapist, and I still learned many wonderful new and improved ways to help my clients ease their pain. The content was rich, and Dianne delivered.” – S.S.S., Cht.
