"Intrigued by the idea of being hypnotized for a better surgical outcome, I made an appointment to see Aléna Guest who I had met and knew had an excellent reputation. I immediately made Aléna aware of my desire for a short recovery period and for minimal reliance on pain medications. I would say that my experience in being hypnotized was very pleasurable and enjoyable. Following my appointment with Aléna, I was given a CD to play for 1 week before my surgery. I dutifully complied and listened to the CD twice each day. When my Wednesday surgery day came, I felt that I was ready for it. I would have to say that the outcome of my hernia surgery exceeded my expectations. By Saturday, I was ready to stop taking the pain pills. I returned to work Wednesday, full time. Following my surgery and my experience with hypnotherapy, I have told everyone how pleased I was with the entire experience."

"Aléna helped me get in touch with the deepest source of wisdom within. With her expert guidance, I was able to find the answers to the toughest questions that I had about my life. Aléna enabled me to trust myself more and feel better about myself than ever before. Because of her support and guidance, I am the confident and healthy person I had formerly only dreamed about being. I owe a debt of gratitude to Aléna."

"I struggled with weight for many years and was resigned to being heavy forever. Aléna Guest helped me change my attitude so now I look forward to exercising and eating healthier foods. The pounds are coming off steadily and almost effortlessly. Aléna is a skillful and compassionate hypnotherapist and I heartily recommend her."
Stephanie Krauss, Los Angeles, CA
"Aléna Guest’s hypnotherapy has been an integral part of my health and well-being. I have worked on several issues with her with great success. In between sessions that were geared towards business and family goals I decided I was ready to improve on my physical body. I was able to meet with my future self and deeply assimilate the knowledge that this is who I really am; someone who takes joy in physical movement and who enjoys eating healthy and delicious foods when hungry.
It has been three months since I have done this work and I am happy to say that I am 10 pounds lighter and have been committed to a regular exercise program that I love. The most amazing thing has been how effortless it has been. If you are craving a new sense of confidence or control with regard to your weight or fitness level, I highly recommend working with Aléna!"
Amy Wall, Mendocino, CA
"I had heard such great reviews of Aléna's sessions, and while I felt drawn to her and the results my friends spoke about, I resisted having a session because of childhood engrained fears about hypnosis. I had been taught that being placed in a trance required one to be absent from her own body and mind. Instead, hypnosis, especially with Aléna as guide, is about connecting to one's self on the deepest level--I have never been more present and aware of myself. Since my session with her, that sense of connection and purposeful direction has remained and informed each day. Aléna's compassionate understanding of my fears and gentle approach has altered my vision of what I see possible in my life."

"I'm amazed at the significant changes in my life, that have occurred in a relatively short time, because of my therapeutic hypnosis with Aléna. As a direct result of this work, I have successfully attained the goals that I set for myself. My self-confidence has improved, my anxieties are greatly relieved, I'm a more effective person in the public arena, and I'm feeling the deeper connection to my community that I've always desired. With respect to my inner goals, Aléna has helped me to find a continual sense of enthusiasm, equilibrium and satisfaction in my life. Anyone who wishes to live more purposefully and joyfully would do well to have Aléna as their ally".

"I have never been hypnotized before, so I was unsure if I could be put into the trance state. At my first session, I laughed when I realized I could not open my eyes, they were glued shut after her hypnotic suggestions! Just her lovely voice, was enough to put me into a deeply relaxing state. Her calm demeanor enhanced my trance state and I felt safe, trusting and at ease with her intuitive suggestions. She has helped me immensely in realizing that I have a new, wonderful chapter in my life right before me. I strongly encourage anyone to try her hypnotherapy sessions!"
Lindsey Morin, D.C., Encinitas, CA
"Aléna Guest offers a calm, safe and secure environment in which to work through issues. I have been able to work through some problems in an effortless manner. Aléna's guided hypnotherapy has been easy. I have discovered things about myself which might not have been revealed otherwise. She has helped me tremendously with my self-confidence and with moving forward with my life's goals.
I highly recommend Aléna."
Ellen Campbell, Albion, CA
"Aléna has helped me in so many ways; by adjusting my way of thinking to achieve personal goals, by teaching me relaxation techniques in order to conquer everyday anxieties, by encouraging me to think through things instead of just reacting to them, and by giving me the ability to cope with stress and tension so much better. Aléna is extremely knowledgeable in her field and I am truly thankful for the opportunity to be one of Aléna's clients."
Kathleen Francis, Fort Bragg, CA
"For years I have been waking up at 3:00 or 4:00 AM, first as a mother then upon entering menopause. Though sleeping pills helped, I did not like the mental fog of the morning. Aléna's sleep hypnosis CD has solved the problem. When I awaken, I use it to calm my anxieties and return to sleep. In the morning, only a few hours later, I awaken rested and alert. I recommend this CD to anyone who shares my night time wanderings."
