25/01/21 Fear of Swimming in the Sea

Hi Stefanie,

I just wanted to touch base again and let you know it made a huge difference. I even went for a swim off the boat by myself. Something I would never have done before coming to you.

Thank you sooo much. I will and have been recommending you to all

Hi Stefanie

Hi Stephanie

I am doing SO well mentally. I am living life. You have helped me remarkably. Hence, I would like to push forward my next session to a month after my last one. The hypnosis aside, I have found you to be a very compassionate, perceptive and caring person. I feel like various energies from the universe came together for me, but you were the driving force behind that.

(after 3 sessions, see mental health program)

Hello Stefanie,

I just wanted to send a quick email to let you know how I had been getting on. The last week at university went fantastically! I have not had such a positive week at university and even in general in so long – I talked to more people in this week then I probably did in a few semesters, and I even signed up to be a class representative for the first time!

I felt far more in control of my body’s ability to relax, and even when some negative thoughts and sensations arose I was often able to deal with them and remove them keeping in mind all the things we went over. It felt almost unusual to feel so calm and confident, the shift from being outside to going back inside home felt like far less of a jump. I felt quite happy and positive to be in the classes for a change and could concentrate just as well, it was quite amazing the change that happened in a short space of time. Things were not perfect yet of course, I still expect some challenges and work ahead but I will try to keep listening to the recordings and practicing the techniques.

So once again thank you very much for all of your help, the sessions were really worthwhile going to.

Morning Stefanie,

The last week I’ve been feeling a lot more in control and it’s been such a pleasant surprise to realize that I’m actually making progress.

I’m finding all the tools helpful and still really liking having my recording on when I go to bed at night. It’s been very helpful and I’m feeling very positive about everything so far 🙂

I’m sure I’ll have some moments to come. But I do feel like I have much more control over the negative thoughts than I did a few weeks ago.

I hope you’re having a lovely week!

Thanks again,

Kaele, Auckland

"I was lucky enough to get a couple sessions with Stefanie as a Christmas present just gone, as I had been on a roller coaster for the past year; as my panic attacks and anxiety were getting the best of me; as  I was getting them nearly everyday.

The simplest of tasks were a nightmare. When I first met Stefanie; she was amazing; a breath of fresh air and made me instantly calm. I knew  I was on to a winner. We targeted the underlying cause: something so very simple that I wouldn't have thought it could be done or true. Stefanie gave me several techniques and tools to conquer that they were straightforward and easy to learn; that I will always be eternally grateful for.

I was so excited to go and practiced the session mediation every morning before I went to work and it worked! It was a new beginning to my chaotic lifestyle: I had won!!. It has been 2 weeks since my first and second session; and wait for it: not one single panic or anxiety attack!! I am so very grateful for Stefanie! I would highly recommend her to anyone!! She definitely has #oneofakind magical powers that work wonders!!! #thanku

04/10/2019 - Virtual Gastric Band Program
I heard about the Virtual Gastric Band (no surgery involved) using hypnotherapy last year on MORE FM Radio station. I wanted to lose weight and the Virtual Gastric Band sounded so good as it meant no diet drugs or diet plan or surgery. I researched online and found Stefanie Schaefer in Browns Bay and decided to make an appointment. I was extremely nervous going for the first appointment as I didn't like the idea of being hypnotised and having no control. Stefanie is lovely and put me completely at ease explaining everything and assured me I would not be losing control or her taking over my mind.

Within the first week I started losing weight, and by the fourth week I was well on my way. I could not believe how easy it was to lose weight. During the treatment course, Stefanie provides 2 individual personal recordings to listen to encouraging you to stay on track. I have for years struggled to get a decent sleep every night but listening to the recording when I went to bed each night I went into a lovely relaxed sleep - I couldn't believe it as it still happens to this day. I am very happy with the results and thrilled that not only was I able to lose weight - reached my target within 2 months but also had the added bonus of being able to sleep properly at last.

I highly recommend Stefanie, not only for the successful outcome she is able to provide, but also for the fact that she is a very caring person who goes out of her way to find out and ensure your individual needs are met.

I just wanted to say thank you very much for your hypnotherapy session and recording, it seems to be helping me a lot and achieving the desired results, so I don't believe a follow up is necessary so if we are able to cancel our appointment on Wednesday the 4th of September at 6 pm that would be appreciated, but if I require any hypnotherapy or alternative therapy you will be the first person I contact.

Hi Stefanie, thank you so much for this, and for all you have done for me over the last month. You really are brilliant at what you do and I think you are amazing as you really do make a fundamental difference to people's lives - mine in particular.

I'm actually going to miss coming to see you each week as I think you are a lovely person - as well as a great professional! I've enjoyed getting to know you.

Thanks so much for all the support, I will let you know how I get on and send you a photo when I finally get into those dresses!

My progress continues and I have now hit the 15kg mark and am feeling really good about it. Thank you again for helping win this battle!!

Also thank you for what you have done for my friend. She has done some extreme diets in the past but I can see this working for her and how she feels and it is wonderful.

I will keep you posted on my progress as I hit the next milestone of 20kgs! There is no doubt in my mind that I will get there even with the lack of exercise!.

I hope all is good for you - it certainly is for me!!

I found the virtual gastric sleeve hypnotherapy program to be highly effective. I was immediately able to be satisfied with three small meals per day, and the results speak for themselves. In the first three weeks of the program I have lost 8.3kg, and fully intend to continue on and reach my goal weight.

Stefanie is kind, friendly, and knowledgeable, and she tailors each session to the individual needs of the client so that you can be sure to achieve the best possible results.

Before beginning this program I was concerned that four weeks wouldn’t be long enough to help me gain long term success. I no longer feel that way, I am completely confident that so long as I’m willing to take responsibility for my own health and well being that I can not only reach my goal weight, but remain there.

I would heartily recommend Stefanie’s Virtual Gastric Sleeve program to anyone who has struggled with reducing their portion sizes, or with keeping their motivation fuelled. Also, as great side benefit, I’m spending a lot less on groceries while getting full on yummy healthy food!

Hi Stefanie, we have totally changed our eating patterns. We drink lots of water. We walk every day. Our meals are smaller and we eat slower and savour the food.

We were just talking today about still hearing your voice in our heads! Nothing tastes as good as thin does!

We are both steadily losing weight and have already needed to discard some of our clothes as they already swim on us. Thanks for the check in. Nga mihi

Lovely, welcoming staff at My Remedy. My hypnotherapy session with Stefanie is already taking hold after only listening to the follow up tape twice! I strongly recommend Stefanie's hypnotherapy for anyone wanting to achieve goals and remove obstacles that are preventing them reaching their goals. I'm really pleased I took this approach and have already recommended it to my friends and family!

I was very fortunate to find Stefanie for hypnotherapy. This was my first experience of this therapy, and I found her to be very experienced, supportive and knowledgeable. She is also a homeopath which has complemented my hypnotherapy treatment, she has a great understanding of the mind and body. The session was fantastic, I felt so relaxed and reassured, and she really triggered what was blocking me in my subconscious mind. I only wish I found her sooner!

Hi Stephanie, All is going well, I noticed a massive difference with the nat mur so am definitely keen for more!

A huge thank you for the suggestion for Terry his one is amazing!! It takes 2 doses of 2 tablets but my goodness it works for him! I am having good results when I listen to the tape with my jaw clenching before bed. I think that proves that stress & relaxation balance is the key!!

Feeling great thank you. I would be more than happy to recommend you, will do it this weekend for you.You’re an angel, I feel amazing, wonderful time to meet such a talented lady!

I have a few referrals for you too! I have been singing your praises!

The weight loss is steady, I have lost 10kg and I am happy for that. Lots more to go but slow and steady is good with me.

Stefanie is understanding, knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. I would totally recommend her and hypnotherapy! I will be coming back for my fear of flying in June. Thanks.

28/11/2017- Anxiety | Fear of Taking High Blood Pressure Readings
Hello Stefanie, Just an update on my progress to date.

I am pleased to let you know just how well I am feeling, and how far I have come since my appointments with you. Your recordings have played a large part in my recovery as well and I am continuing to listen to these as well as using the other tools.

I am at the stage now that I can do my blood pressure readings with no fear, apprehension or anxiety and this in turn results in the readings being quite consistently low.

Thank you Stefanie for your assistance and I certainly couldn’t have done it without you. Life is great!!! Best Wishes

Hi Stefanie, I’m doing well. Exercising and feeling much better – and of course, smoke free! I haven’t got to the holiday booking step yet but I’m looking forward to that.

26/08/2017 - Tinnitus
I had been searching for a ‘cure’ for my tinnitus for some time when I came to see Stefanie. The ringing noise I was experiencing was loud – probably a 4-5 (5 being loud) and it was constant. I noticed the noise all the time and I was having difficulty sleeping and concentrating at work. It was my sole focus which was making me very anxious – it was overwhelming.

I had two sessions with Stefanie. She prescribed a homeopathic remedy and also provided me with an audio recording which I listened to for about 3 months every day after those sessions. During this time Stefanie stayed in touch with me to check on my progress.

After 3 months of listening to the recording I can honestly say its about 1-2 now and I don’t notice it as often. I am sleeping better and its not the first thing I think about when I wake up, I feel much calmer and happier. As time goes by I know, eventually I won’t hear it at all.

Like any form of holistic healing, your own mind is powerful tool as much as the treatment itself. I firmly believed and trusted in the process and with Stefanie’s support I am in a much better space today. Thank you Stefanie.

11/12/2016 - Bruxism | Grinding Teeth
I got in touch with Stefanie a few months ago to see if she could help me with hypnotherapy. I had issues with clenching my jaw since I was a teenager and after a dentist visit I was determined to find an alternative therapy to heal the tension I was holding by getting to the root of the problem. I had been wearing a retainer to protect my teeth at night- but still, from unconsciously tensing my jaw during the day- especially in periods of stress- I had caused damage to my teeth.

Stefanie explained how the hypnotherapy could help and how it works and also offered alternative methods to help support healing due to her knowledge of homeopathy. The first session was a great experience and I felt looked after and relaxed and Stefanie's gentle approach and her soothing voice made me feel at ease. The recording was great as I could listen to the audio at any time and it became a soothing ritual before I went to sleep. I started to become more aware of the tension i put on during the day and I don't wake up with aching jaws anymore. Highly recommend! Thank you Stefanie
