Well here's an update to my other review of my therapy/hypnosis with Nancy. I still haven't taken any pain meds and I'm still alive and my cancer is supposedly still in "remission". I did everything my oncologist told me to do except take the pain meds because I didn't need them (I feel because of Nancy) and the pain never returned since her either.

My father died 3 weeks ago and let me tell you, I almost had a cigarette again. Nancy stopped me from smoking in 1 session. I went over in my head what Nancy taught me and I didn't have even one cig and I still haven't.

I listened to the old recording Nancy made for me (which I hadn't done since she made it for me and it did the job). Now I'm more convinced than ever that I'm a nonsmoker. So far, so good for the cancer and the old pain too. I love my oncologist and I love Nancy. Thank you! Thank you!

I think Nancy is truly one of the lamed vavniks, as someone else wrote about her in another review I read. She is certainly wise, nice, concerned and incredibly good at what she does.

Ill never forget my 2 appts. with her. I can honestly say that I have lost 26 lbs. so far since I started seeing Nancy and I know Im on the right track. I seemed to have deeply picked up what we did and Im totally amazed at how relatively easy its been to drop these pounds. Im exercising too - because of her. I hope I dont regress to my old ways but so far I feel like a new person regarding where Im going with my body image and weight and Im actually loving the process. Im wildly amazed and owe a great debt of gratitude to Nancy. Nancy thank you for being you.

I'll never forget how inspired I was even from my very first session with Nancy, with her kindness, caring, professionalism and real wisdom. She's just what "the doctor ordered"??. Nancy's method is solid and truly special. It just "sticks"??. I was so stressed out when my cancer doctor told me I probably had only a few more months that I felt entirely hopeless and depressed and I all I could think about was when i could have my next cigarette. The work Nancy did with me worked so amazingly well that I had to share it with you, especially if you are going through a similar thing or I'm sure if you have most any other issues. My money seemed superfluous to her. She seems like a truly nice, genuine, concerned person. I only went to Nancy 4 times in total during the two years of my cancer battle. I'm now in remission. I personally feel I'm finished with it. My doctor's amazed. He says he's seen it before in people he's sent to Nancy. I call Nancy my angel on my shoulder, I now realize through the work that we did that positivity, hope and Nancy were wildly effective and powerful. Without Nancy's help, I certainly would never have been able to get through it. She even got me to stop smoking right at my second session with her and I haven't smoked again to this day! I also know that from my first appt. with Nancy, I never had that agonizing pain again, ever and I haven't taken any of my pain medication either! Now with Nancy's help I'm not only pain free and cancer free, but also smoke free and I'm hopeful and wildly happy. My oncologist is the one who suggested I got to her and I'm so very very thankful I did.

I saw Nancy at a time when my life was in shambles. I was unemployed for over a year and so in debt that I was behind 2 years on my loans and mortgage. It got to a point where I couldnt afford to live normally anymore, at all. I was stuck in a huge hole. I was alone, I went from smoking 2 packs to 3 packs of cigarettes a day, I had bouts of nervousness - where I couldnt sit still anymore (I looked like a crazy irritable person) and to top it off I became addicted to sleep meds - it got so bad that my body refused to respond to the effects of the sleep meds so I felt I needed to take more and more. Before giving up on myself, I did some thorough research, looking through and reading every review I could find in directories like Citysearch and even Superpages researching the top therapists, hypnotherapists, psychotherapists and lo and behold I came across Nancy Donenfeld. The only downside was the fact that I lived in West Virginia and I knew if I wanted someone outstanding I had to make the effort and travel to come see her. I have absolutely no regrets whatsoever. I planned a mini vacation with some money I could borrow and stayed at a cheap hotel for a weekend in order to get the help I needed to get back on track somehow. Let me tell you all out there - she is by far the best thing I have come across. Not only did I stop smoking entirely and cut my stress level and nightly amount of ambien down dramatically right away, but a little less than a month since I got back from seeing her, I was offered a full time position with a reputable company in West Virgina, where Im from, with full benefits and very good pay. Its like all these positive and amazing changes started to take place all at once. I would have never, in a million years thought my life would turn around so quickly in such a positive way. Im now completely off the sleep meds and Ive gained a tremendous amount of confidence in myself. One thing is for sure, Ive learned to be the best money manager whos ever walked the face of the earth and Im a relaxed, good sleeper, non smoker at the same time!! Im smiling an awful lot now and its been 2 years and I am debt free! Nancy you helped me see life from a different lens. You enabled me to do all this because of your integrity, your insight, your niceness, your skill and even your availability, (even on the weekend for me) and I cannot thank you enough for it! The best of the best! Yay!

I was diagnosed with depression at the age of 17. The death of a very close friend of mine 5 years ago and stress at my job and my home accelerated my moroseness and depression. Lately I was always feeling tired and depressed. Waking up in the mornings for work was a total nightmare. My psychiatrist prescribed different drugs through the yrs. but none of them worked very well so then I went to Nancy who my psychiatrist advised. Within the first two sessions I saw considerable changes in my mental health and attitude. Her method enabled me to not only reduce the medication entirely, but to start to take control of my own life/moods and to feel good about myself and my life.... And it worked fast! What she said went really deep. She's been a blessing to me. I have experienced nothing but good with her and her methods. I recommend her to anyone who wants to be happier, much happier.

After seeing Nancy for the first time, I felt prepared to finally put an end to all the extra weight I had gained over the years as well as the intense depression I built up as a result. I never imagined what it would be like to lose weight with hypnosis so I was a little apprehensive about what to expect when I made my first appointment. Nancy put me right at ease. She has a very very nice manner about her. She walked me through her process to actually be a thin person (hence now to lose weight of course) without counting the calories. This all happened in 2 sessions. I would have never thought I'd be sitting here today, writing up a testimonial about the remarkably fast progress I made 3 months and 2 sessions later. The first week I lost 4 lbs. and after that my weight went straight downhill. In 3 months I lost a total of 42 lbs. and I went from a size 12 to a size 5. For the first time in my life I have been exercising regularly (without a trainer having to regulate me) and I am loving it. Nancy and my best friend (who also had a great turnaround with Nancy in just 1 session) really inspired me to make other necessary changes in order to live happily and healthfully in other areas too. My body, my attitude and my mental state have improved gigantically. I could not have done this alone - no chance, no way. This woman has a gift and she sure knows how to put it to good use.

I was going through some really rough times and Nancy helped me so much faster than I could ever imagine. I absolutely could never have succeeded without her. She helped me grow and develop into the person I am today. Her method and the suggestions she used were truly inspirational/insightful. She was empathetic, straightforward and seemed to truly listen. I??ve learned to make good and honest decisions, remembering to stay true to myself at all times or as best I can. One of my biggest challenges that I had to face was learning to stand on my own two feet because my marriage ended just before I went to see Nancy. Living in New York City alone was definitely a great challenge but with Nancy??s method, insight and support I do these things, and so much more comfortably and easily now. I can??t thank Nancy enough for all that she??s done for me. I think she and her work are unique. You should try it. Thank you Nancy, thank you, thank you, thank you.
