Being part of life changing stories
”“I have two friends who quit smoking through hypnosis, so I was hopeful that hypnosis would help me control my increasing anxiety. It did more than that; the major part of my anxiety has disappeared. The little that remains is not a problem, in fact it's quite normal and is easily minimized using the techniques that were taught to me. I did the sessions from the comfort and privacy of my own home via zoom and I am enjoying life again. I highly recommend Mind Matters.”Catharine M.*Individual Results May Vary
”“When I started working with Dayna I wanted to lose weight. What I didn’t expect was to gain something in the process - my heart. I was approaching weight loss like a drill sergeant for so many years. Working with Dayna gave me access to a kindness and compassion within me that I had never given myself before. Although I was skeptical, it happened just like she said. Through hypnosis I developed a loving relationship with myself and the weight just started to drop off. I really can’t say enough good things. ”Susan W.*Individual Results May Vary

”“Mind Matters Hypnosis is amazing--as a fellow practitioner (I am a gynecologist), I am VERY critical. I did three sessions of weight release over a five-week period and felt like it was better than any therapy and has helped me "'eat to live' rather than 'live to eat.” I would HIGHLY recommend the team to anyone--even though I drove 1 hour and 10 minutes each way!!! It was WELL worth it!”SHIEVA*Individual Results May Vary

”“Mind Matters Hypnosis’ strategic approach created amazing results for me. My hypnotist actively listened to what I wanted to achieve in weight loss, mapped out a logical progression of steps and provided methods to guide me. This approach combined with her clear, calm tone and superb power of hypnosis brought me to a level of success I have been striving to achieve for 4 years. In just 3 months I lost 22 pounds and have been successful in eliminating sugar and gluten from my diet. I have recommended Mind Matters to coworkers and friends and they are experiencing positive results as well. “DIANE*Individual Results May Vary
”“I had no experience with hypnosis, my opinions only garnered like most people from TV and the movies. So, it was with quite a bit of trepidation and skepticism that I met with Ginger Summa. She very calmly and intelligently informed me what hypnosis is and isn’t, what the process would be so as to alleviate any nervousness or fears I might have about the session (we all have preconceived fears and misconceptions of the process!), and what I might or might not experience, what to expect, and how this would impact me during and after the session.
The idea alone that she would get me to relax was hard to believe, my day and life being so busy and hectic like most of us. But the session seemed to go by so quickly and amazingly, I just was super and deeply relaxed, listening to her and talking with her the whole time. When it was over, felt like I had just had the longest vacation ever, like I had just gotten up from a beach somewhere with no worries or concerns. Being so relaxed actually made me laugh out loud- who knew I could be that chill! Amazingly hypnosis is truly just a deep relaxation process allowing you to deal with or concentrate on issues, therapeutic and invigorating, at least for me.
Ginger explained that one time isn’t usually all it can take to deal with an issue, with some people going back many times or some just once or twice more (as it turned out I did.) But I left with a strategy and game plan for how to deal with anything that might trigger me wanting to go back to my old ways, and having tools to use on my own was incredibly supportive and empowering.Dawn RD*Individual Results May Vary
All my old ideas about hypnosis have been vanquished and Ginger just rocks at making you feel safe, secure, relaxed and in control. If she could only bottle it, I would have some after 5 PM every day! Ginger gives new meaning to the term “happy hour!”
”“I am a client at Mind Matters Hypnosis for the Weight Release Program. I have had 2 sessions with Ginger and at the end of each of those sessions, I eagerly await the next one. Ginger has an incredible way of putting you at ease, guiding you through the process, asking great questions to understand "where you are," and bringing comfort so that you can be honest - with her and yourself! She has an awesome personality that brings a vibe like you are talking with a dear friend. My self-awareness in my thoughts and actions is definitely elevated and "cravings" aren't present. I am enjoying the freedom I am experiencing to simply enjoy my present moments to allow for better tomorrows.”Jacqueline D.*Individual Results May Vary

Just from those five sessions it has completely changed my life for the better. My relationship has improved and my overall outlook in life is better.

”“Mind Matters Hypnosis helped me alleviate some troubling obstacles. The team’s warm and professional approach put me at ease right away. My hypnotist was a compassionate listener, a wise guide who took the time to understand my current state of mind before we worked together. The conventional health care provider would have spent ten minutes with me, prescribed me a medication as I walk out of the room. Mind Matters Hypnosis’ approach creates a safe-haven where she helped me dig deeper so I could regroup my frame of mind and start fresh.”DINA*Individual Results May Vary
”“I've been to the Center for various issues over the last year. For me, probably the most dramatic change was my relationship with food. After just one hypnosis session, my outlook on eating and what I eat changed dramatically. And it's not something I'm even aware of unless I look back and compare it to how I was. I have lost 40 pounds in the last 5 months and didn't even know I was doing anything differently. It's been truly pleasurable. I choose more nutritious foods and eating doesn't seem to be the only thing I think about anymore. I've also seen the folks at Mind Matters Hypnosis for other issues and have been helped in immeasurable ways. The team is truly a compassionate and caring crew that is really, really good at its job.”ANONYMOUS*Individual Results May Vary
”“Simply put, this place saved my life! I was referred by my sister, who went to Mind Matters to quit smoking cigarettes and has been a non-smoker for over 8 years now! I was struggling with many issues in my life at the time, including drug addiction (opiates/heroin more specifically) & even suicidal ideations. I had tried many other forms of therapy, including an extremely expensive rehab my parents sent me to (more than once throughout my addiction), NA/AA, IOP, relapse prevention groups, psychiatric medications, etc. I was very weary of hypnotherapy yet, was so desperate, feeling hopeless & completely helpless, therefore, was willing to try ANYTHING!
Thank God I decided to try it. It really gets to the depth of things! I was taught how to identify the root cause to these issues, as well as how to love myself again and truly feel worthy of great things. I am clean and sober today (have been over two years now), without any urges to ever go back to that way of life! I'm a better mother, partner, daughter, sister, friend, and professional (social worker) today! All aspects of my life have improved! Like a complete 180!
My family has never been happier for me as well. My parents and fiancé can finally sleep without worrying so much! I have never experienced happiness like this! I'm so incredibly grateful for this experience and plan to continue to follow-up with it in order to maintain my healthy mind set. If you're on the fence about this, well, give it a try! I promise you will NOT regret it! (Give it at least 3-5 sessions to start seeing results).”BETH*Individual Results May Vary
”“I used hypnosis for weight release. All my life, I couldn’t lose weight. I've been heavy all my life and weight loss just doesn't happen to someone like me.
I went to Mind Matters Hypnosis on Valentine’s Day—a day of importance for me, because I quit smoking on Valentine’s Day and gained over 40 pounds in a year.
I was interested in seeing if hypnosis would help with weight loss. I was pushing 300 pounds when I went in for my first weight release session.
After some sessions, hard work on my end, and following Mind Matters Hypnosis “homework” on weight release, I'm almost 40lbs lighter. This is so exciting to me!
My son has also lost some weight with the different, more nutritional foods in the house.
Life hasn't been easy but, I got to say, I like this life and I'm so grateful that the Mind Matters Hypnosis team has helped me get to lead a life I'm happy with.”ANN*Individual Results May Vary
”“I've been to Mind Matters Hypnosis a handful of times. I had may "blocks" in my life and accessing them on a conscious level was too overwhelming with the EMDR technique, so my journey started with a backdoor approach of hypnosis.
I was so nervous taking a journey into the unknown. I've struggled for years with PTSD, and I just wanted some lasting relief. I wasn't looking for a "bandaid" type therapy which would put me back into therapy the next time a trigger or triggers came about. That kind of life was and continued to be the life of a roller coaster. Life is too short to spend more than half of it walking on egg shells, waiting for the next shoe to fall.
My first session was in the Guilford office. I was greeted with a smile and asked to have a seat in the next room. We did some family history and I was taught some techniques during our session. She explained hypnotherapy to me and answered all my questions. I was given homework to do and was asked to use the techniques daily.
The team has been very supportive in between our sessions, answering all sorts of questions I've had. I’m sometimes given homework; some of it is really hard for me to do but I’m reassured that it's all part of my healing process. Trust is and was very hard for me but, this was a new journey for me, and I wanted everything possible to get me off this roller coaster of life.
I can honestly say that the PTSD is gone. I'm a completely different person today with all the help and support I received from Lisa. My friends, family and coworkers can see such a change. I never really knew what true happiness was until the baggage of life's traumas were taken out though the backdoor of hypnosis.
I'd recommend anyone to try hypnosis with an open mind going into it. I can't thank Mind Matters Hypnosis enough for the life I've found hiding under the dis-ease of PTSD. My next step is weight release. So looking forward to the results of that journey.”ANONYMOUS*Individual Results May Vary

The team makes you feel at home the minute your session starts, and I was completely relaxed the whole time I was there. I have been twice so far and I found both sessions extremely beneficial. I was dealing with severe anxiety for a very long time and since my sessions I have had an almost 100% improvement. It is such a great feeling! Hypnosis is a very intimate experience and it is very comforting to know what great hands you are in with Mind Matters Hypnosis!”MICHAELA*Individual Results May Vary
”“My experience at Mind Matters Hypnosis was amazing. I was helped physically, emotionally and mentally. I had tried many methods, including therapy and nothing worked until I went to Mind Matters Hypnosis. My hypnotist was so good with me that I even brought my daughter to see her for her allergies, and the pricing was reasonable. She is very professional but also feels like a best friend. She was very welcoming and calming. The experience changed me so much that I am now completing coursework to be a certified Hypnotist so that I can help others the way she helped me.
I would recommend Mind Matters to everyone.”YOVANNA*Individual Results May Vary
”“My first session of two was 7/13/15 and I was also asked to pay for it all in advance, however I only paid for the 1st session the date that I went and the 2nd session on 7/20/15 when I returned a week later. I thought the price would be too much for the results.
The office area was small but quaint and the hypnotist who I was scheduled to see was very professional. At no point in time during the session did I ever feel as if I wasn't in control of what I was doing or saying. I had to add that in because a lot of people that I know have misconceptions about being hypnotized and not having control. I was mindful of my surroundings the ENTIRE TIME and felt completely comfortably and safe.
I quit smoking that same day after my first visit and haven't smoked since. Although I stopped smoking that day I did attend the second session the following week. I am the mother of a young toddler; therefore, it was important to me to quit for life. I feel that both of the sessions are beneficial and even necessary to have this foundation forever. When I attended the second session, I was able to tell her what worked for me and what I may still need to concentrate on during the second session. In this way all my issues and concerns were cleared up fully at the end of the 2nd visit even though I had already quit smoking after the 1st visit. (No nagging temptations to smoke after the 2nd visit.)
Although it has only been a few weeks I do not even have cravings AT ALL and I am now a NON-SMOKER! I don't want to smoke I don't even think about cigarettes, it's as if I forgot I used to smoke. We even discussed healthier options for when I am driving which is when I used to smoke the most.
Mind Matters Hypnosis honed in on a lot of my concerns as they related to smoking and addressed a few issues that exacerbated my smoking; such as my anxiety and grief related to a family member's passing which triggered me to begin to smoke nine years ago. The work that was done through hypnotherapy regarding the grief and anxiety and how it related to my smoking was astonishing and I am forever grateful! I am now a true believer in this process. I would recommend Mind Matters Hypnosis Center to my family and friends.”NADINE*Individual Results May Vary
”“Mind Matters Hypnosis is amazing and very skilled, professional on all levels.
I was treated in only three sessions for motion sickness and acrophobia - both of which are completely gone despite living this way for 50 years. I have never been happier. I can't say enough about how grateful I am for my experience.
As a mental health practitioner for over 20 years, I have also had the unfortunate experience of mentally unstable reviewers. It is difficult because in this field there are people who are not emotionally healthy and only want to create chaos. They will write excessively about others in a negative light (never saying a positive word) but won't take responsibility for their own negative behaviors.
I only give five stars and refer others to a practitioner if I know that person is truly good at what they do and provides ethical and professional service. I have sent quite a few people to Mind Matters Hypnosis and they all have had positive feedback about their successful treatment. A + + + + + + + + + +AMANDA*Individual Results May Vary

It was worth the drive."BARBARA FROM NEW JERSEY*Individual Results May Vary
”"My weight loss has been very steady and very consistent. So far, I’ve lost 24 pounds. I’m struck by how consistent it’s been; there hasn’t been a week where I’ve gone backwards. My original goal was to get from 246 to 200 but now that I’ve got a pattern going, I see no reason why I can’t be 185-190. I don’t know how to thank you – I can’t find the words. All I can say is that your help has changed my life and I can’t thank you enough."ERIC FROM CANTON*Individual Results May Vary
”"Thanks for working with Tyler this week. He was very upbeat upon leaving your office, thanked me several times for taking him, and said he felt much “more confident about things.” He also sat right down after school and worked on his homework for an hour which he really felt good about. I can’t think of any more worthwhile an investment."CHERI FROM CANTON*Individual Results May Vary
”"Betty was wonderful! I honestly can’t believe the improvement in my teeth clenching.. It is something I’ve struggled with for years. On the occasions (much less frequent and much less severe) that I do find myself clenching I can use the tools Betty taught me to relax my jaw. I am confident that some day I will be completely free of this habit."DORA FROM WATERBURY*Individual Results May Vary
”"My doctor chuckled when I asked for a referral to get hypnosis for my IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome.) I’m the one chuckling now because it’s completely gone after only 2 sessions. I am a free woman, thank you so much!"DANA FROM CANTON*Individual Results May Vary

”"I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you for all of your help. I am still a NON-SMOKER thanks to you, but in addition to that I felt a huge burden of anxiety and negativity and grief lifted off of my chest after our last session. It was so freeing and amazing. God Bless you for what you do. Thanks again for all of your help, the whole experience was amazing and I continue to feel awesome after the last visit."NATALIA*Individual Results May Vary
”"I have completed two sessions of hypnotherapy for GI concerns. Elaine put me at ease immediately and spent a lot of time gathering information about my current issues and past history including physical, relational, and emotional. Many of her comments were insightful and inspired trust. The hypnotherapy experience was easy for me and very relaxing as I listened to Elaine's calming voice. She was able to include everything that I had shared with her previously. At the end of my session she gave me some behavioral tools that I could use at home to enhance my experience and calm difficult feelings. I have tried them and have found them surprisingly easy to do and very effective. As of now, I do not know whether the hypnosis treatment will rid me of all my physical discomforts but, overall, it has been a positive experience."JANE*Individual Results May Vary
”"Ginger's enthusiasm and confidence made our session enlightening and enjoyable.R.C.*Individual Results May Vary
She took time to educate me as she researched the subject which I was seeking her help with. I feel the hypnosis was successful and I left the session with a plan and reason for how to achieve my goal.
For that I am extremely thankful to Ginger, both for her time and compassion."

”"I am a client at Mind Matters Hypnosis for the Weight Release Program. I have had 2 sessions with Ginger and at the end of each of those sessions, I eagerly await the next one. Ginger has an incredible way of putting you at ease, guiding you through the process, asking great questions to understand "where you are," and bringing comfort so that you can be honest - with her and yourself! She has an awesome personality that brings a vibe like you are talking with a dear friend. My self-awareness in my thoughts and actions is definitely elevated and "cravings" aren't present. I am enjoying the freedom I am experiencing to simply enjoy my present moments to allow for better tomorrows."JACQUELINE D.*Individual Results May Vary
