I found that this mindful approach to weight loss was a real positive way to handle food and eating. Weight loss as a byproduct of a lifestyle mindset was new to me and I found it a great influence. I was mindful of what was going on with me and around me and not locked into statistics i.e. calories, points, etc. It removed a lot of stress and enabled me to focus on being aware of what was going on with me and around me.
Shirly Gilad has taught me so much about nutrition and health in her Mindful Eating for Weight Loss group. Especially helpful have been the guided meditation recordings. I am trying to incorporate them into my everyday routine as I find it so beneficial. Cutting out sugar was a little hard at first, but it only took a few days and now I don’t crave it at all. Taking stock to actually think about what I am putting into my body rather than mindless eating has made a huge difference in my life. I have lost some weight and more importantly, I feel better about what I am doing and the choices that I am making for my health.
I will be eternally grateful to Shirly. For the last twenty years I’ve had insomnia. I averaged about 3 hours of sleep each night. Then I met Shirly who changed my life. It was through hypnosis and her guidance I received from her, I am now able to sleep between six and seven hours a night. I can now function better all next day. Thank you Shirly, thank you, thank you.
Got rid of eyelash picking habit in just a few days! I’ve been overcoming several difficulties in a short amount of time through hypnosis. Highly recommend !!
After two traumatic bullying experiences, my 15 year old daughter started suffering daily with disabling chronic migraines. We exhausted every traditional, and nontraditional treatment. Such as, Neurologists, Acupuncture, medications, supplements, and mindfulness, just to name a few. I had become extremely emotional and full of anxiety listening to my daughter crying for help, day after day and not being able to ease her pain. I started seeing Shirley. I emediately felt comfortable talking with her and after the first session had begun to feel less anxious, and hopeless. Thankfully she agreed to see My daughter and after the first session her migraines improved dramatically! By the 3rd session they were completely gone! This is a real experience, My daughter’s migraines started several years ago and became chronic and daily 9 months ago. She has been migraine free for about a month now after seeing Shirly. Shirly has given us our life back! She is a true healer, and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to feel better!
I had three sessions with Shirly. The sessions were great and the recording and the daily contact were extremely helpful. I Smoked cigarettes for over 48 years and was 2 pack a day habit. Tried patches, Chantix, and gum nothing worked. I believe without Shirly’s help I would be still fighting my addiction and smoking. I have been smoke free for 6 months now. I still get a small urge occasionally and just listen to the tape once in a great while now. Thank you so much my health and breathing have improved greatly. I do not believe I could have succeeded without Shirly’s help.
Imagine your brain as a restless, messy, unorganized ball of interconnected wires. What Shirly managed to do is help me organize, rewire, recharge and restart the system while using tools such as hypnosis, behavior therapy and homeopathy. Where there was confusion, she managed to activate clarity, visualization and goal achievement. She’s an amazing listener and would be able to get to the core of the issue right away as if she had known me since forever.She’s empathic and genuinely cares and always stays focused on empowering me and providing me with the tools I need to understand, approach, avoid, root out or face an issue. Do not expect Shirly to do all the work for you! Magic will start taking place if you meet her half way. Self-discipline, self-knowing and self-development is a long journey, but it can be an easier one if you are blessed enough to have the guidance of an amazing professional such as Shirly is!
I had the pleasure of reaching out to Shirly, after sharing one of my professional struggles with a dear friend of mine, who has highly recommended Shirly, for a related struggle she experienced in her line of work. I have reached out to Shirly and became connected with her immediately. Once our work began, I felt the awareness and results of the issue I wanted to resolve and can confidently say, that this has changed my perspective and approach on many levels. I also must admit, that before I have spoke and meet with her, I was quite skeptical of this approach although curious by nature, I decided to give it a try. She was very open and available for all the questions that I had, therefore the confidence to start the process after speaking with her for the first time. She is extremely knowledgeable and has the gift of intuition, thus the reason why I can call her “a psychologist on steroids”. If you wish to resolve an internal struggle and wish to do it at a fast pace, there is no other person that I would highly recommend than, Shirly Gilad of Integrative Hypnotherapy of Boca Raton. Many thanks.
I came seeking help for panic attacks and anxiety. I was experiencing a lot of trouble in a particular situation that just wasn’t working for me. I have been on anxiety medication before and didn’t want to go back on them and I just didn’t think that talk therapy was effective. They seem like a giant rant session and never made me feel better or resolved and never really help quell my panic attacks. After a couple sessions with Shirly, my panic attacks disappeared and I was able to confront my situation. My path completely changed and I felt empowered to make changes in my life from a place of strength and not fear. I love my recordings and the personal power they help me realize that I have inside myself. I couldn’t believe how fast things changed and turned around and I just felt that everything started to fall into place.
The panic attacks I was having on an almost daily basis, ceased. I don’t get so worked up and in a panic when faced with difficult situations. I’m able to hold my ground and work through problems logically rather than become an emotional wreck that spin into panic attacks.
I wholeheartedly recommend Shirly to others. I have been through unproductive talk therapy sessions, anxiety and depression medications that only made me feel worse due to the side effects. I was so happy to find Shirly and have the help I sought out after only a couple sessions. She’s a professional and she truly cares about you. She invests in you and listens to you.
I had the pleasure of having Shirly be the featured speaker at a morning of meditation, mindfulness and yoga event. She was a fabulous person to work with to ensure the success of the event…detail oriented, personable, flexible, caring, insightful and incredibly well connected. It is no surprise that she has a large “fan base” and that anyone who meets her either professionally or personally feels an almost immediate connection to her. Shirly’s method of presentation whether it’s to a large group, a small group or to an individual is chock full of knowledge, compassion and an innate understanding of people. Many first timers at the event were so inspired and deeply moved by her talk…it was truly the highlight of the morning. I would highly recommend Shirly to any group or to any person…she is a rare gem. I feel lucky to have met her.
