As a meditator many decades long, I was excited to realize, when I trained in hypnotherapy, that it utilizes many of the same concepts and approaches.
The difference is that whereas most people tend to stay in their heads during meditation, often trying unsuccessfully to relax and make the thoughts stop, hypnotherapy shows us a way to jump over that hurdle and sink directly into a place of calm and centeredness.
There, a kind of bridge between the conscious and the subconscious mind is formed. We experience states of intense joy and renewal, we gain fresh insights and understandings, and our nervous system is able to release deeply held tension.

I was in a deep depression before I saw Hilary. I was so devastated to not be able to feed my baby it was taking over my life. I was angry. I was embarrassed. I felt inadequate. All I could do was cry. I felt so out of control. I will never forget our first session together. It literally changed my outlook on life. After several sessions, I continued to feel so much calmer and more grounded. Hilary understood everything I was going through and we were able to process it in a way that I could let go of the pain and move on to enjoy the pleasures of being a mother. I will forever be grateful for my experience with Hilary and highly recommend her to anyone who is going through a tough time.”
“When I read Hilary’s book Healing Breastfeeding Grief, I felt like someone was speaking my mind for the first time about the pain I suffered. When I did my first session with Hilary she got right to the root of the problem, and the pain significantly shifted. Hilary found a way to guide me into a deep and almost primal attachment again with my child, in a way that no other Doctor, midwife, therapist, or healer seemed to be able to understand. Hilary knows so much about pregnancy, babies, food, health, culture AND life— Try a session with her if you are looking for someone smart to help you in a concrete and meaningful way move forward from pain and confusion.” –
I freaked out when I started to have some milk supply issues. In my desperation, I read all possible articles, websites, books, any resource talking about milk supply. The relationship with my baby and family was severely affected by my obsession and the situation in general. I had little hope, and in a book I read about acceptance and grief, which lead me to Hilary’s books and websites. Therapy with Hilary has helped me be more secure in general. She also gave me dietary advice to support my milk supply. She reminded me of the important things, such as not only nurturing my baby with milk, but with a real connection. Additionally, she has been very flexible with the sessions. I do not have enough words to thank her.”

“Hilary enabled me to regain a part of myself I thought was gone. I have since been able to encounter old, pervasive problems with a whole new understanding, unusual patience and success.”
“During what I thought was a very casual conversation, I was being hypnotized and was already dropping emotional baggage like anvils — as problems I had been struggling with seemed to just slip away. That was 5 months ago and I can’t thank you enough Hilary.”

“Hilary offered me a quality of deep listening from the very first session and that was just what I needed. Furthermore, she helped me build inner resources and be able to access them instantly. Over the years I have had experience with many different therapies and healing modalities and have worked very deeply. I have been amazed at the profound nature of the work she does and how it has helped me change. I am so grateful that I met Hilary!” –
