“Maude’s therapy sessions are one of the best intangible investments I’ve made in years -with very tangible results.
Skeptical and misinformed as I was about hypnosis, I had tried many traditional treatments without complete satisfaction. Extreme stress, accumulated anxiety and self-directed anger were symptoms that my clinical decade-long depression brought along. Psychotherapy and medications seemed endless and left my problems unresolved.. My mental abilities of composure, concentration and focus -my best tools during transitional periods- seemed to have vanished, I felt disoriented even in the in the most mundane activities, and my relations with loved ones deteriorated each day.
After a few weeks of sessions with Maude, it was hard for me to believe how quick and easy hypnotherapy was working for me: Mental blocks and weaknesses disappeared, and I returned to my usual peaceful, cheerful state of mind. My connections with people I care for are again positive and harmonious. And during the whole treatment, I was always conscious and in control. I plan to continue taking maintenance sessions in the future.”*
“I have been a customer of Maude’s and Sacramento Hypnotherapy for over 5 years now. I have been extremely pleased with the services received and the results I have achieved working with Maude.
I initially went to Maude to address my fear of heights while driving. I would get panicky being in the car or driving up New Priest Grade Hill getting to Yosemite. It is an extremely steep hill with lots of switch backs overlooking the cliff. I now have no problems driving up New Priest Grade. I won’t even let my husband drive up the hill because I want to continue showing off my accomplishments and feel proud that I have overcome this fear that gripped me for a couple of years.
I also appreciate the peaceful and safe space that Maude provides at Sacramento Hypnotherapy. The office has a tranquil feeling and all of the other Hypnotherapists and staff members make me feel at ease and relaxed.
I have also enjoyed attending the Holistic Wellness Meetup Group at Sacramento Hypnotherapy that is once a month. I have enjoyed learning about other types of holistic practices such as meditation, massage, avyerveda, shamanic healings, and constellation work. I have gotten tremendous value out of these classes and even now work with some of these other practitioners.
Lastly I wanted to add that I had been a skeptic of hypnotherapy prior to seeing Maude. I did not understand what it really was about (besides what gets conveyed in movies – which is totally inaccurate!!) All of my concerns and fears were alleviated working with Maude. She is a true professional and I would highly recommend her and Sacramento Hypnotherapy.
“Just want to let you know that my nails look great! I have not started biting them again. I do reconnect with my “wisdom center” before I go to sleep to remind myself about not biting or fidgeting with my nails. When I find myself fidgeting with my nails, which happens occasionally, I think to myself, “I used to do that.” I find this technique really powerful…Thank you for guiding me through the process and providing me with the tools to help continue it. ”
“I just wanted to e-mail you to let you know how thankful I am for all your help. If it hadn’t been for you I know that I would have never been able to stop smoking…After the fifth session I was smoke free. And I still am.”
“I started smoking when I was 12 years old, I’m 67 now. I was recently diagnosed with a aortic aneurysm and it was recommended that I stop smoking…We started my sessions with me still smoking, my second session I was on the patch, and on my third session I was on the patch and removed it during my session and I haven’t looked back since…I can’t even begin to express my appreciation to her and the thanks she deserves”
“I’ve had an alcohol drinking problem since I was a teenager…After ten sessions of hypnotherapy with Maude I no longer have any desire to drink one ounce of alcohol.”
“Happy New Year! And it truly is. I have lost 15 pounds since I first saw you in October and I had to go and buy new jeans two sizes smaller. Thank you so much for your fabulous help…With your help and my continued practice I look forward to dropping another 15 pounds in the next couple of months. I have recommended hypnotherapy and you to several people for many issues. You have helped me focus and find peace and confidence in many areas of my life. Maude, you are great!”
“For far too many years, I’ve battled the weight, the cravings, and the feeling of failure. The weight would yo-yo and suddenly, I found myself at the heaviest I’ve ever been…It wasn’t until I met Maude and started hypnotherapy that I was truly able to work on overcoming and facing the evils I have dealt with for so long. I’ve lost some weight, gained more confidence and the greatest part of this whole process is that I have absolutely committed myself to working towards a goal of losing 35 lbs…Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy having a bite and treating myself every now and again but I’m really accepting the concept “all in moderation” and I’m OK with that, FINALLY.
I feel GREAT!..Again, thanks for your help!”
“…depression and anxiety began ruling my life. Every day began feeling heavier than the last and each minute a battle to conserve energy…I went to my first hypnotherapy appointment and after only 8 sessions my life has completely changed. My approach to life has become colorful again and creative…Now, I cannot remember the last time I felt anxious or depressed. I can look down at my baby and feel the pure joy of being a mother. This experience was priceless. Thank you Maude.“

“I saw Maude at Sacramento Hypnotherapy for serious anxiety/panic issues related to public speaking and being in large groups of people. It has literally changed my life…I can’t even express appropriately the gratitude that I feel for Maude, because these issues have affected my personal and professional life for years…I wish I could give her 10 stars, because the experience has been that powerful in my life. Thanks you so much Maude!!”
“I recently started seeing Maude to help me with my phobia of seeing people vomit…I was convinced I was going to have it for the rest of my life…I found Maude online and sent her an email to which she responded right away. We spoke on the phone and instantly, I felt at ease with her… Words cannot even begin to describe how much better I feel since going to her…Maude not only helped me conquer my phobia but also helped me have a strong sense of self-worth and self-love. I now focus my energy on making other positive changes in my life! I continue to go to “attunement” sessions. Maude and her hypnotherapy has truly been a life saver for me.
I highly recommend it to anyone!!”
“I was recommended to Sacramento Hypnotherapy for help with preparing for the GRE exam. After years of struggling with test-taking anxiety…Brad did a wonderful job of making me comfortable on my first visit, and I really felt like he listened to me and honed in on what I wanted to work on…I felt more confident, more self-assured…The day of the GRE exam, I felt nervous, but using the tools Brad provided me, I was able to overcome those nerves and take the exam with ease. I never knew I could thrive like that on a standardized test! Brad was great to work with, and I look forward to continue using hypnotherapy – it truly is life-changing.”
“I had been plagued with issues of poor self-image, self-confidence, and self esteem…During the course of my sessions I’ve been introduced to techniques that have helped me to curb my negative thoughts…Since my first session I have been able to sleep when I go to bed. I have kept a steady pattern ever since, something I have been unable to do on my own for years!!!”
“It is my great honor to endorse Maude Schellhous for the great improvement she has made in the quality of my life. Approximately 12 years ago I was diagnosed with an incurrable bladder disease-Interstitial Cystitis…After only three treatments I felt great relief. At the end of the 10 sessions I have been completely pain free- a feeling I had long forgotten after the 12 years of agony, 4 surgeries, and many drugs, acupuncture, and many prayers-NOTHING had worked until the hypnotherapy. I can’t say enough good about what she has done for me and would urge anyone with pain, whether it be physical or emotional, to consider getting help from her treatments.”
“I was sent to Maude Schellhous on the recommendation of a close friend who had problems with chronic pain…By the end of our work together…The pain caused by the terminal cancer became much more manageable with less drugs. I will say without question the most amazing outcome has been a very deep sense of detachment from the fear and depression normally associated with my condition. I have been able, with the suggestions and assistance of Ms. Schellhous’s therapy methods, to enjoy real and total acceptance of my life, just as it is. This is a priceless gift.”
