I have been blessed by my experience working with Kathryn Shearer as my counselor and hypnotherapist. Kathryn has a tremendous gift to swiftly discover the hidden issues that plague the client, a gentle loving spirit to impart the necessary path to change and the commitment to your success in achieving your goals. I would highly recommend Kathryn for any unresolved issues or concerns that need to be addressed and to facilitate the healing process in both the conscious and unconscious realms of our physical and spiritual lives. She’s FABULOUS!
The two hypnotherapy sessions I had with Kathryn forever changed my life, and I’m able to still use it to calm me, all these years later! Imagine having anxiety about climbing into the back seat of a hatchback car.​ Imagine having anxiety in arenas.​ Imagine having anxiety to fly.​ ​Imagine having anxiety crossing over a bridge in a car.​ Imagine having anxiety to sit on the “inside” seat of a restaurant booth.​ Imagine having anxiety in crowded places.​ Now imagine that anxiety was so strong, that it caused panic attacks in the days leading up being put in those situations. When you have anxiety, your heart starts to beat faster. A chemical reaction occurs that has adrenaline levels elevate drastically.​ This was me for many years in my late 20’s and early 30’s. I would avoid being put into positions, where I knew I would be uncomfortable and have the “fight or flight” thoughts. ​A lot of my anxiety stemmed from feeling like I wasn’t in control of a situation.​ I’m opening up about this, because anxiety is such a hard thing to go through, and can make you feel alone. It’s somewhat easy to hide, from the rest of the world. ​And I if I have some friends that could overcome this the way I did, I hope this post will help. They say that people that suffer from anxiety are highly creative and also intelligent, because they generate numerous possibilities in their heads of the “worst possible scenario.” 

​ Even though I was a relatively positive person, I would still come up with how things could go wrong, in various situations. ​So what changed for me? How’d I shake the anxiety? ​I had a good friend, when I was in my early 30’s, seeing me suffer and asked if I had ever thought of seeing a hypnotherapist. He’d used hypnotherapy to quit smoking and also he also had a friend with debilitating anxiety about getting on airplanes, that used hypnotherapy to get rid of that anxiety. ​I hadn’t thought of hypnotherapy, but based on what he told me about it, I was willing to try it. I was willing to try anything at that point, since I’d suffered from this anxiety for years and it was drastically affecting my quality of life and the situations I’d allow myself to get into. ​I ended up going to my hypnotherapist, Kathryn Shearer twice. After the first visit, I left her office, with an elated feeling and a huge smile on my face. ​It was a feeling I hadn’t had before and it is actually hard to explain the sensation.​ Kathryn programmed my mind with a mantra that I would say, if I ever felt that anxiety creeping in. “I’m protecting my health, building my self-confidence, and taking control of my life.” Sounds like an easy enough mantra. Although the words mean something, the real magic was in her programming my brain, to calm me, whenever I said those words to myself. Kathryn also programmed me to be able to self-hypnotize myself, when I wanted to sleep, calm myself, or meditate, by counting backwards from 15 to 1. ​And when I do this and hit “7”, I start to literally feel my body relaxing.​ ​ So, if you are my friend suffering from anxiety, just know that you aren’t alone and I’m here, if you want to ever talk. ​​
