Here is what clients say about working with Alan Barsky



I let go of my anxiety and stress

" I listened to your whole audio recording and it was AMAZING! I absolutely loved it. I felt so relaxed when I finished. I didn't want to open my eyes but I had to get ready for work. I really enjoyed the part about my negative thoughts melting and evaporating. It is a good way to explain that it is important to pay attention to my negative thoughts and let them melt away and evaporate by placing them somewhere warm in my mind, instead of ignoring them and pretending they don't exist by distracting myself with other thoughts. Also, I liked the part about living in the moment and being in control of my thoughts. This audio is so powerful. I love how deserving I feel for my strong breaths today. It feels great! I'm excited to listen to it again before bed. Thank you Alan! I'm so happy to have met you :)

• Local Photographer loses weight and gains self-confidence

“Alan is a wise soul who uses active listening to determine how to best work with a client. He customizes the message exactly to the client and provides clients with a CD/recording after each meeting so you can continue to build on the benefits of each session. I have worked with him on several issues; as I strongly believe in the power of the mind, and the need to access that power at a subconscious level for best results. Currently I have worked with him on weight loss, and found it easier to stick with the plan than with any previous diet. He has also helped my self-confidence and jaw clenching TMJ.      High integrity. Great results.”   

 Jeanette Vonier, Fine Arts Photography, San Anselmo, Marin County, California

• LOST WEIGHT:  “I lost 15 pounds and the fat under my chin went away”.

         “Alan, I lost 67 pounds, since I’ve worked with you!  I feel better and happier.”             

 Sam Sashin, Financial Marketing Director, Charles Schwab,  Tiburon, Marin County

       • 6 years later, seeing Sam in a grocery store:  "67 pounds in that one year and look, I have kept it off for years!"                

“My visits with you have helped me stay with my diet.  People ask me what I've done to lose weight and I always explain that the hypnosis was the key factor.”              

 Maureen K., Attorney, San Rafael, CA


• Getting Good Results and staying on track
“I need to xx xxx.  Is there any chance we can meet from 3:00-4:30 instead?  If not, then we will have to skip a week, but I would rather not.  I am having good results with the weight loss.” 

 R. A. Architect, San Rafael, CA

Help with my job interviews                  

“I found a great job and I have been so happy!  I start xxx.  It’s right off BART so I don't even have to drive any more.  I think I have eliminated about 90% of the stress in my life.
            Actually, I went on several great interviews and was offered a job at each one.  It blew me  away-- next time I hesitate in a situation like this, I am going to remember that if I just go for it, it's going to work out.  Your hypnotherapy sessions helped a lot.  I really did feel relaxed and like myself when I interviewed.  My fear of the fear was worse than just walking into an office and shaking hands and blabbing about myself.    It makes me laugh that I just did it and it was so easy!  The best thing is that I think if this job doesn't work out (and I think it will) I won't face this old hinderance of fearing job interviews ever again.

           Thank you so much for helping me face this.  This time in my life was so hard.  I really felt like I had no where to turn.  I really pulled through though.  What a relief.“
 Sandra, Legal Secretary, Berkeley, CA

 Ashley S.,  Real Estate Agent

I have known Alan in business group settings and in-person and found him to be pleasant, relaxed, and respected by all for his wit and ease of engagement. And he is very discreet”.

• Remove old bad feelings

and I am done with it. It is very simple.”                                                              
 Leslie K.,  CEO, financial services, Tiburon, Marin County


• Quit Smoking, finally

 Carl Rosen, CEO, San Francisco

• Quit Smoking in steps
“Thank you so much I could not have done it with out your help.  The welbutrin helped me quit the last four I was having daily, but you helped me get to through the tough stuff and that was instrumental in my quitting.  From 30 a day to 4 a day, who would have ever thought?  It was the first step to my long drawn out process of quitting.
    I no longer say I'm trying to quit, or I'm in the process of quitting.  Even better, I don't say I'm down to only 4 a day from 30.  Today I don't smoke.  I am a non smoker.
Thank you again! You helped me find the courage to become a non smoker.”
 L.P., advertising executive, Mill Valley, Marin County

• Recommended
• 2010  “Alan is a great hypnotist and talented public speaker, and I'd like to recommend him beyond those capacities. Alan is a great mind and a wonderful person. I have met thousands of hypnotists over my decade in the industry, and I can truly say that I consider Alan to be one of the smartest and approachable among them. Alan gets it. When I attended his lectures I watched him closely and paid attention to his style and methods. His methodologies are well thought out and have a wit about them that is rarely seen. He has an engaging personality and connects with his audience. In conversation, his sincerity and levity are both palpable. I would trust Alan Barsky to work with me or any member of my family. His intellect alone makes him unique, his integrity puts him in an even higher category.”
