I saw Nancy at a time when my life was in shambles. I was unemployed for over a year and so in debt that I was behind 2 years on my loans and mortgage. It got to a point where I couldn’t afford to live normally anymore, at all. I was stuck in a huge hole. I was alone, I went from smoking 2 packs to 3 packs of cigarettes a day, I had bouts of nervousness - where I couldn’t sit still anymore (I looked like a crazy irritable person) and to top it off I became addicted to sleep meds - it got so bad that my body refused to respond to the effects of the sleep meds so I felt I needed to take more and more. Before giving up on myself, I did some thorough research, looking through and reading every review I could find in directories like Citysearch and even Superpages researching the top therapists, hypnotherapists, psychotherapists and lo and behold I came across Nancy Donenfeld. The only downside was the fact that I lived in West Virginia and I knew if I wanted someone outstanding I had to make the effort and travel to come see her. I have absolutely no regrets whatsoever. I planned a mini vacation with some money I could borrow and stayed at a cheap hotel for a weekend in order to get the help I needed to get back on track somehow. Let me tell you all out there - she is by far the best thing I have come across. Not only did I stop smoking entirely and cut my stress level and nightly amount of ambien down dramatically right away, but a little less than a month since I got back from seeing her, I was offered a full time position with a reputable company in West Virgina, where I’m from, with full benefits and very good pay. It’s like all these positive and amazing changes started to take place all at once. I would have never, in a million years thought my life would turn around so quickly in such a positive way. I’m now completely off the sleep meds and I’ve gained a tremendous amount of confidence in myself. One thing is for sure, I’ve learned to be the best money manager who’s ever walked the face of the earth and I’m a relaxed, good sleeper, non smoker at the same time!! I’m smiling an awful lot now and it’s been 2 years and I am debt free! Nancy you helped me see life from a different lens. You enabled me to do all this because of your integrity, your insight, your niceness, your skill and even your availability, (even on the weekend for me) and I cannot thank you enough for it! The best of the best! Yay!

"Marilyn Spanier helped me break a lifelong bad habit in a single session! I never really thought hypnosis could work, but was willing to try. Due to that willingness, and Marilyn's assistance, I haven't bitten my nails since the session. The session itself was very relaxed and even fun. I have another habit I may try to break and when I am ready I will be back to Marilyn. She's amazing." Shannon Grommes, New York City *************************************** "I'm sure there are people who might doubt the effectiveness of hypnosis. I was a sceptic in a lot of pain from Fibromyalgia. My hands, wrists and arms felt as if a torch was held against my skin and there was underlying pain. Thinking I had nothing to lose I decided to try hypnosis in the hope of maybe, just maybe it might work. Well it did!! You provided a session that was very relaxing and slowly I felt the fire subside from my skin. It's been a few weeks now and I am happy to tell you that the heat sensation and pain of the Fibromyalgia has not returned. I am totally astonished by the outcome of our session. You've managed to do what medicines, supplements and other treatments could not achieve. Thank you. " P.C. Rivera, Staten Island, NY********************************************** "I had to give a speech at a business meeting. There were several hundred people at the meeting. In the past I was always afraid of public speaking. Marilyn Spanier helped me with confidence and I gave an awesome speech. I am now looking forward to more opportunities to speak, thanks to Ms. Spanier. She also has a very pleasant sounding voice and the session was comfortable and lots of fun." Jay Roberts, New York**************************************************** "Thanks to you, I no longer suck my thumb in my sleep. Thank you so much. Ruthie G." NYC******************************************************"The expected results were immediate. I feel much more confident. The renewed power within me allows me now to act on achieving my long desired dreams that have been on the backburner for too long. Thank you! The wealth of information you have imparted to me is so easy to remember and access. I can put it to immediate use. Thank you." Adriana T.- Queens, NY
I'll never forget how inspired I was even from my very first session with Nancy, with her kindness, caring, professionalism and real wisdom. She's just what "the doctor ordered". Nancy's method is solid and truly special. It just "sticks". I was so stressed out when my cancer doctor told me I probably had only a few more months that I felt entirely hopeless and depressed and I all I could think about was when i could have my next cigarette. The work Nancy did with me worked so amazingly well that I had to share it with you, especially if you are going through a similar thing or I'm sure if you have most any other issues. My money seemed superfluous to her. She seems like a truly nice, genuine, concerned person. I only went to Nancy 4 times in total during the two years of my cancer battle. I'm now in remission. I personally feel I'm finished with it. My doctor's amazed. He says he's seen it before in people he's sent to Nancy. I call Nancy my angel on my shoulder, I now realize through the work that we did that positivity, hope and Nancy were wildly effective and powerful. Without Nancy's help, I certainly would never have been able to get through it. She even got me to stop smoking right at my second session with her and I haven't smoked again to this day! I also know that from my first appt. with Nancy, I never had that agonizing pain again, ever and I haven't taken any of my pain medication either! Now with Nancy's help I'm not only pain free and cancer free, but also smoke free and I'm hopeful and wildly happy. My oncologist is the one who suggested I got to her and I'm so very very thankful I did.
My son Eric's ability to focus has improved dramatically since he last saw Nancy in February of 2017 for the third time. Her method helped him to the point where he no longer depends on a tutor for help, primarily in the areas of spelling and reading. She taught him how to hyper focus, to be much more relaxed and to have faith in himself, even in times of distress and he seems to be doing it so much more easily and naturally, incredibly enough. He now takes initiative when it comes to his homework without the need to depend on anyone for help... he even gets upset if one of us (his mom or dad) ask him if he would like assistance... it's amazing how much progress he's made since he last saw her. Nancy has shed quite some light on his “disabilities”, by bringing the positive into it etc. and turning it all around for him, me and his father- (his 2 grandmothers and grandfather too). We are so grateful to her for her absolute and utter commitment in helping my little boy get on his feet and on track with his studies and school. He now seems to be progressing even further everyday and he's even gotten a couple friends now. I’d like to hug Nancy for all of her help and total and complete regard for helping Eric reach for a state of “normalcy", finally. It feels as though, directly because of Nancy’s help, Eric has a couple friends and he seems to be getting closer with them, he likes to and can focus and learn so much better and he's getting more and more self confident all the time now…. We recommend Nancy most highly.
After seeing Nancy for the first time, I felt prepared to finally put an end to all the extra weight I had gained over the years as well as the intense depression I built up as a result. I never imagined what it would be like to lose weight with hypnosis so I was a little apprehensive about what to expect when I made my first appointment. Nancy put me right at ease. She has a very very nice manner about her. She walked me through her process to actually be a thin person (hence now to lose weight of course) without counting the calories. This all happened in 2 sessions. I would have never thought I'd be sitting here today, writing up a testimonial about the remarkably fast progress I made 3 months and 2 sessions later. The first week I lost 4 ½ lbs. and after that my weight went straight downhill. In 3 ½ months I lost a total of 42 lbs. and I went from a size 12 to a size 5. For the first time in my life I have been exercising regularly (without a trainer having to regulate me) and I am loving it. Nancy and my best friend (who also had a great turnaround with Nancy in just 1 session) really inspired me to make other necessary changes in order to live happily and healthfully in other areas too. My body, my attitude and my mental state have improved gigantically. I could not have done this alone - no chance, no way. This woman has a gift and she sure knows how to put it to good use.
I was diagnosed with depression at the age of 17. The death of a very close friend of mine 5 years ago and stress at my job and my home accelerated my moroseness and depression. Lately I was always feeling tired and depressed. Waking up in the mornings for work was a total nightmare. My psychiatrist prescribed different drugs through the yrs. but none of them worked very well so then I went to Nancy who my psychiatrist advised. Within the first two sessions I saw considerable changes in my mental health and attitude. Her method enabled me to not only reduce the medication entirely, but to start to take control of my own life/moods and to feel good about myself and my life.... And it worked fast! What she said went really deep. She's been a blessing to me. I have experienced nothing but good with her and her methods. I recommend her to anyone who wants to be happier, much happier.
Well here's an update to my other review of my therapy/hypnosis with Nancy. I still haven't taken any pain meds and I'm still alive and my cancer is supposedly still in "remission". I did everything my oncologist told me to do except take the pain meds because I didn't need them (I feel because of Nancy) and the pain never returned since her either.My father died 3 weeks ago and let me tell you, I almost had a cigarette again. Nancy stopped me from smoking in 1 session. I went over in my head what Nancy taught me and I didn't have even one cig and I still haven't.I listened to the old recording Nancy made for me (which I hadn't done since she made it for me and it did the job). Now I'm more convinced than ever that I'm a nonsmoker. So far, so good for the cancer and the old pain too. I love my oncologist and I love Nancy. Thank you! Thank you!
I think Nancy is truly one of the lamed vavniks, as someone else wrote about her in another review I read. She is certainly wise, nice, concerned and incredibly good at what she does.I’ll never forget my 2 appts. with her. I can honestly say that I have lost 26 lbs. so far since I started seeing Nancy and I know I’m on the right track. I seemed to have deeply picked up what we did and I’m totally amazed at how relatively easy it’s been to drop these pounds. I’m exercising too - because of her. I hope I don’t regress to my old ways but so far I feel like a new person regarding where I’m going with my body image and weight and I’m actually loving the process. I’m wildly amazed and owe a great debt of gratitude to Nancy. Nancy thank you for being you.
