She encouraged me to think more positively
While struggling with health problems, I began to experience unmanageable anxiety and panic. As I go through my recovery and transition to a normal routine, Margot’s hypnotherapy sessions have been an important and empowering support. She has given me practical solutions and exercises that have helped me manage my anxiety and encouraged me to think more positively. I have no doubt that her sessions have helped move me forward in my recovery.

Yin Yoga as a beginning
You gave a beautiful Yin Yoga class last week! My husband loved it and wants to go every week. He said that you said two things that worked for him and were of great importance. One was that it was okay to just lay there if he wanted to. He is as stiff as a log and even though he wants to bend etc., he is so limited. He needed to take that first baby step in a safe and compassionate environment which you provided.

I'm so happy to have quit smoking
I am so happy I have quit smoking and become a fresh air breather thanks to Margot. It was so easy to quit with her profound hypnotherapy sessions. I would recommend her services to anyone, anytime.

Much calmer than normal
After seeing Margot for the fear of flying, my husband and I are now on a bus going to the subway station in Toronto. He is out of his comfort zone but I’m in mine! I fell asleep last night listening to my hypnosis audio track. As soon as I got up I was a little anxious about the flight to Toronto but not nearly as bad as old habits. I practiced my visualization, sipped my water, did left brain-right brain with a little pebble and I used the Saje Relax-O-Ring. It was surprising that we had some turbulence as it was such a beautiful day. I felt I should have done better but my husband said I was much calmer than normal. So here I am in the beautiful sun of Toronto.

So much in my life has changed
Wow! I am so thankful that a friend recommended Margot to me. I had my first session with her barely two weeks ago, and so much in my life has changed. I went to her as someone who was experiencing daily anxiety that had become debilitating. I was scared and uncomfortable in virtually any setting, but most distressing to me was that I was no longer comfortable driving. I was also finding myself to be very anxious at work, despite the fact that I love my job. One visit with Margot changed that. I really enjoyed my talk with her, and being under hypnosis was an amazing experience - like a natural high! She gave me daily homework to do (which is really relaxing) and strategies to use when feeling anxious. All of this has genuinely changed my life. I will go back and see her again although I may not even need to because I would very much like to enjoy hypnosis, under Margot's gentle guidance, once again.

My experience was raw, intense and beautiful
I was so happy to have met you and followed through with HypnoBirthing. I was so grateful and fortunate to experience a very peaceful, relaxed birth at the IWK in the comfort of my Doula’s presence with dimmed lights, surrounded by flickering tea lights and a sea salt lamp while laying in the tub listening to the HypnoBirthing meditation. I listened to the Rainbow Relaxation for months leading up the birth of my son. I can only explain my experience as raw, intense and beautiful. The room was silent. No one spoke. I breathed through each contraction on counts as if they were moving up a hill and coming down a hill. This counting and breathing helped me conquer each wave with confidence in myself and my ability to have a natural birth.I cannot share my story enough. The day did not start off according to my “scripted plan” (I'm a control freak) but I learned the whole process is about letting go, surrendering and owning your power within. I learned, you can set all your best intentions along the way but you can never really "plan" how it will turn out. Going in, I knew my strength and in the midst of uncertainty it’s about finding it and owning it. No one in that room could give me what I needed. It was all me and within me. I highly recommend HypnoBirthing for anyone choosing a natural birth and it is the ONLY book I recommend that women read to prepare.

I am back on track today
I can’t thank you enough for your support; you are changing my life! In the past, an episode like yesterday with the emotional eating, would have gone on for days! I would have allowed myself to mistreat myself and just spiraled for days. I still have much work to do; however, after three weeks of working with you I really am doing and feeling much better, even with all the stress of work and the news about my Dad. Thank you, Margot!

I left convinced that everything will be okay
You made me feel at ease with the "hello" of our initial phone conversation. You made me feel comfortable in your place of business and allowed me to reveal my humanness without worrying about being judged. My session felt like a visit with a friend. And the great hug before I left convinced me that everything will be okay. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your very special gift.
