Kelly BethkeShirly Gilad is a thoughtful and highly effective practitioner! Being new to the area, I relied on the reviews of others as well as her website to help guide me and am so glad to found her. Shirly brings a wealth of education and experience to create a truly customized plan that works. She offers many services and opportunities to improve mindfulness and overall emotional/behavioral health and what I really appreciated about the process was that it took only 3 sessions and I experienced results really quickly. Highly recommend!
Shirly Gilad is a compassionate, intuitive and gifted healer. She listens with her heart and through hypnosis was able to assist me back to wholeness & ultimately happiness following the unexpected loss of my son. Hypnosis was a new experience for me and I found the experience to be very comforting and comfortable. I have benefited greatly from my work with Shirly and wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who comes up against the inevitable bumps in the road of life.
She’s simply gifted, loving and lovely! Her radiant smile shines deep from within her beautiful heart! Thank you Shirly for making a difference in my life.
I started working with Shirly close to 2 years ago and the experience has been life changing.Each time I visit, Shirly creates a recording for me based on what I am going through at that moment and each time the recordings change and evolve to help me learn and grow. Without Shirly and my recordings, I don’t know where I would be right now.When I began, I was in a very dark place and really struggled to find peace and happiness in my life. By listening to my recordings and going in to hypnosis, meditation, and relaxation every day, I have come out of that place stronger and healthier than I ever thought I could be.I highly recommend Shirly’s program for any one struggling with any aspect of their life. I have sent friends and family to her with health issues, mental health issues, and just run of the mill, every day problems, all with positive and rapid results. She is a life saver.
I have had several positive experiences with Shirly’s hypnosis. After the session she sends you a recording to listen to on your own. This truly enhances the message and experience. Prior to surgery, I was extremely anxious and concerned about the outcome, particularly the pain in the aftermath. The process created ease for me both before and after. My results were remarkable. The procedure went smoothly, the pain was to a minimum and I was back on my yoga mat in two weeks. Thank you Shirly!
JA ~September 2019
I was absolutely plagued by anxiety (and had some panic attacks) for the first time in my life getting over a man who I thought I was utterly in love with. I knew intellectually he was not the man for me, however I was emotionally entangled and could not stop seeing him even though I wanted to and tried to. I found myself in an emotional situation and could not get out. With Shirly’s hypnotherapy sessions I was able to break free from this relationship. It was amazing the success I found even after the first session! She is an amazing counselor and hypnotherapist! I highly recommend her! She is 5/5 stars in my book!
Debbie W. - August 2019I went to Shirly because of PTSD. Although I believe in talk therapy, I wanted to erase old painful programs and replace them with healthy new ones. Everything that I know about Quantum Physics shares that memorized emotions can stop us cold. Hypnosis seemed like a logical solution. Shirly had tremendous intuitive insight. She was able to mirror back to me a lot of Aha moments. It was as if Shirly was a human translator listening to painful things, then turning them into meaningful experiences. While under hypnoses, emotional journeys led to understanding and relief.The other thing that really stood out is that Shirly is fearless when it comes to looking directly at pain. She has worked with people who are at the end stages of life, which tells me that compassion runs through her veins. After our sessions, I feel as though a boulder was lifted from my soul. Originally, it was there to protect me. Now, it’s time to let it go.
I was introduced to Shirley’s practice through my mother. My mom decided to become a yoga instructor within the last couple years. Although she is not a client of Shirley’s, the two of them frequent similar seminars in the area and while listening to her speak on the subject of mindfulness during a luncheon, my mother recognized Shirley’s technique was a very different approach to the more common talk-therapy that I am accustomed to and haven’t found success with.
I struggle with anxiety (specifically as it relates to school but also social; at times it can be paralytic) and I’ve dealt with depression in the past. I’ve been through conventional therapy and been on anti-anxiety/depressant medication to treat it but nothing ever seemed to make a difference for me.
Initially, I think I was cautiously open to hypnotherapy as I related it to hypnosis (which are two very separate ideas). More than anything I just really wanted to find a practical way to deal with the anxiety. I am a controlling personality by nature so I just felt I wouldn’t be able to let my mind go and be accepting to Shirley’s method. I was so surprised to ‘wake up’ and come to find my first session was already done. I wasn’t sure I’d be receptive but I was fully able to drop into my subconscious and when I came back to I already felt an overwhelming sense of relief. Like a weight was lifted off my chest.
I’ll say that having somewhat of a background in yoga and/or meditation (even if it’s the most basic level of experience) 100% helped me get the most out of Shirley’s therapy.
If you are battling something within your own mind and can’t find a solution I highly recommend Shirley’s therapy. I haven’t known her for long but the practices she has taught me and the way they’ve allowed me to grow, focus, and balance out my well being as it pertains to my mental health will stay with me for life. Not to mention she’s just an easy person to be comfortable around. She’s highly knowledgeable on multiple subjects, extremely emotionally intelligent/intuitive, accepting/understanding and she provides you with the most comfortable environment.
Shirly is very knowledgeable and a true professional. I feel very comfortable sharing and speaking with Shirly. I trust her opinion and insight. She listens, explains the process and truly cares about your outcome. I have never felt rushed. She provides a quiet, clean office with a comfortable chair which is essential to relax for hypnosis. I have been to other practitioners for hypnosis in the past and no one was as helpful as Shirly. I highly recommend her to everyone. She has greatly improved my life.
Shirly is a compassionate and calm soul. She spoke to me before each hypnosis session so she could tailor the experience to my goal, and then sent a recording to each session so I could experience the session again and again. My goal was to quit smoking. And thanks to Shirly I am now and forever a non-smoker!
Shirly Gilad has helped me in so many ways. I was fearful of flying and after two sessions with her, I was flying!! I will admit I was skeptical at first yet remained open minded and was literally stunned at the results. Shirly is a genius in my opinion, she is so knowledgeable and so kind, she makes herself available to you and is very responsive in answering questions. I have had 3 sessions and plan to have several more to work on other issues. Shirly Gilad changed my life for the better, I highly endorse her for anyone seeking her services. If there were 10 stars I would have checked 10 stars.
