Give yourself the tools to succeed

We live in a time where technology and proficiency are coveted more than self care and emotional well being.  Many of us were never taught essential skills that help to retain balance and composure during some of lifes most difficult struggles.  At Self Image Studio, we embolden our clients with empowering belief systems which enable them to realize their best potential.

It's Okay to Not Be Okay

It’s important to remember that everyone goes through struggles and personal battles in their lives.  We live in a very critical world and are constantly bombarded with unrealistic imagery and negative media messaging that can have a detrimental impact on how people see themselves and experience the world.  Be gentle with yourself.  Remember that it’s okay to not have all the answers.  At Self Image Studio, we help our clients find balance so they can rely on themselves when feeling overwhelmed by the adversities of life.

Benefits of Hypnotherapy

Did you know that experts estimate we have between 60,000 to 80,000 thoughts per day?  Most people have never contemplated the effects of the quality of their thinking.  When you feel better about yourself, you feel better about the world, and this can have a domino effect on your life positively effecting all areas.  At Self Image Studio, we pride ourselves on our commitment to helping our clients realize their highest emotional and physical well being.  Through hypnotherapy, we have found that our clients blossom in many areas of their lives.  

I went to see Gabriella to address some long-standing body image and emotional eating issues. She expertly walked me through some memories in a way that gave me a totally new insight into my issues. . It was a relaxing and safe environment. In the month since my session, I have been able to go on a date, wear a swimsuit at the beach and embrace my femininity in a way I was unable to do before our session. I have also been making healthy food at home and my food cravings are totally gone.

I had a Skype appointment with Gabriella a few months ago. I was suffering for many years with my weight and unable to stay on any diet for more than a few months. I was at my heaviest when I had my session with Gabriella and I am so happy with my results. My cravings for chocolate late at night disappeared and I don't think about food all the time. I also notice that my jeans are loose and I am more comfortable wearing dresses and skirts. Thank you Gabriella!

I can not say enough about the incredible impact that Gabriella’s work has had on my life. I have tried hypnotherapy before and had zero benefits. I was blown away by Gabriella’s comprehensive approach. I felt so safe, heard, and respected. I never thought I could be hypnotized as deeply as I was during our session. Since then I have felt so much confidence, almost zero cravings, and a freedom I have only dreamed of. I would highly recommend Gabriella to any woman looking to overcome struggle, addiction, and self-image issues.

I was considering a gastric bypass surgery when a good friend suggested that I have a consultation with Gabriella before making any major decisions about surgery. After 2 appointments I feel like a different person. I don't overeat when I am stressed out at work anymore and somehow my sugar cravings are gone!
