Weight Loss

I enrolled in the weight loss program 3 months ago and it has really changed my life. I will say that I was a bit skeptical at first but everything so far has gone exactly how I was told it would and I expect that to continue until I reach my weight loss goal. I am 5′ 8″ and was 200 lbs. I have currently lost 39 pounds in 3 months. In the past, I have done other programs and lost weight but eventually gained it back. I have seen the results of one of Alisa’s previous program participant who lost the weight she desired and has been able to maintain the weight loss with no special diet or exercise routine. Alisa is great and very passionate about what she does! She really helps you get to the root of why you have had trouble with weight loss in the past. After completing the initial stage of the program, I now enjoy food more and have a real desire to eat better and live a healthier, more fulfilled life.
Dear Alisa, Your weight loss program helped me to turn my attention toward my body and myself. Also helped me to start to appreciate my body more, and consciously making better choices in my daily food consumption. I was happy to find out that this is NOT a diet program. And it works!!! I love listening to your CD before going to sleep at night. Thank you for such a wonderful contribution!
I first found out about Alisa and Hypnosis 2 change from my friend. She had just completed Alisa’s Weight Loss Program and was telling me about her journey. At first, I was a non-believer in hypnosis and determined that it would not work for me because I had too much control over my feelings and would not benefit from the program. I had tried every weight loss program and diet out there, I would lose the weight and then gain it back. My curiosity and determination to change my current lifestyle and to get out of the void I had found myself in encouraged me to seek out Alisa for an initial consultation.
Alisa immediately became my idol. She was so confident and self-aware and just after one meeting with her I felt like she was completely there for me. It wasn’t about the weight loss, it was about the issues behind the weight. Every other program I had tried were quick fixes, Alisa’s program is about getting to the root of your issues and resolving those. She helped me to deal with and overcome my anxiety, depression and negative thoughts and feelings. She helped me to address events in my past as well as present and helped me to find my passion and goals. She helped me to understand my relationship with food and the negative subconscious thoughts that were leading me to eat unnecessarily.
The more sessions I had with Alisa the more empowered, energized and confident I became to create my future based on my passions instead of just letting it happen and to love myself before I could love others. I found myself waking up happy and going to sleep without sleeping aids and sleeping throughout the night. As the program progressed it became less and less about the weight loss and more about becoming a healthier, passionate, confident, patient and positive person with integrity! This program has transformed my life, everything else including the weight loss just follows. Thank you Alisa and Hypnosis 2 Change, I now wake up every morning excited to take the next step to fulfill my passions and future goals and I know Alisa will be there for me throughout my journey to help me through the breakdowns, the breakthroughs and the success!
I found Alisa via online reviews. So reviewers, please keep up the great work! I am a “seeker” and have been doing many forms of personal development / consciousness work since 1997 as a result of a potentially life-threatening dis-ease that I now see as the proverbial two by four over my head to “wake up” and live. All of the complimentary healing modalities I’d experienced and studied had brought me to a point where I had an inner knowing that I needed something else to go deeper. My goal was to (finally) experience true joy and come to peace with my past. In my free consultation with Alisa I explained that I had been feeling depressed, anxious, frustrated and sad. She was extremely honest with me. My childhood traumas made for a challenging case. Alisa’s knowledge and expertise goes way beyond clinical hypnotherapy. She uses her training and her own personal experience with traditional psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Holotropic Breathwork, Art Therapy, Jungian Psychology and Dream Analysis (and I’m sure there is much more in her toolbox) in an intuitive manner to design a customized treatment program for each of her clients. What did I experience? Alisa’s techniques allow the client to take a deep dive into their anger, fear, sadness, trauma, blame, guilt, shame, hurt, rejection, betrayal, judgment and many other stuffed /repressed emotions. If you are courageous and do your homework, you will complete the process and find joy at the end of the tunnel, like I did today! Woo Hoo! I’ve completed my process with Alisa all except for a session in three weeks to create my future and I cannot wait to see how empowered, glorious and delicious it is! Who should schedule a consultation with Alisa? Anyone who has ever experienced any kind of trauma, abuse, depression, loneliness, sadness, fear, rejection, betrayal, eating disorders, etc. Alisa custom-designs all programs for the client so my “issues” may be vastly different from yours. And yet, I am confident Alisa can assist you… do your homework, otherwise you will be wasting everyone’s time and money. Refreshing component: Do not think that you will be sucked into a program that goes on for ten years and then you… might be… could be… kind of sort are… done. Alisa and you will clearly know when you are done and it will likely be a shorter time than you believe it will be because of Alisa’s vast expertise and skills. Best wishes to you achieving your own experience of true joy and total acceptance with your past or whatever you choose to bring into your life. Blessings!

I’ve joined Alisa’s Weight Loss Program in the beginning of August and in the first week I’ve lost 5.8 pounds and 4 inches overall. I have lost a total of 32 pounds in 6 months. My sugar cravings have vanished and I am not hungry during the day. I am very excited to continue this journey and confidant that I found the program that will last a lifetime. I have learned a lot about food and myself during the program that will continue to be helpful in the next weeks and months ahead. I am thrilled with the results that I have achieved in a week and I can’t wait to see the end result. Alisa’s passion for this program is contagious and she deeply cares for her clients. She provides a comfortable atmosphere that enables her clients the best that they can be.
Alisa, thanks to your program, I stopped being an emotional eater. I’m able to eat small portions now easily during the week and feel great physically and emotionally. I love to be in control of my eating habits that I was not able to do before I attended your program no matter how hard I tried. I lost 17 lbs in 2 months despite being on vacation in all inclusive resort during this time. I love to listen to your Hypnosis 2 Change CD that helps me to relax and unwind.
Thank you for everything.

I went to Hypnosis 2 Change for weight loss. Alisa’s group therapy, many different techniques with and under hypnosis helped me to deal not only with food addiction but more importantly ways to alleviate the stress and boredom that triggers it. I have been losing weight without any difficulty and feel free of a lot of emotional issues that were a real burden in my life. I highly recommend Alisa, I got so much more out of my sessions then I could have hoped for. Thanks to Alisa I now lost 30 pounds, gain confidence, and started my own business.

Quit Smoking

First time I heard about hypnosis I said to myself: Hmmm, interesting!!! But I’ve always been afraid to go for it. I heard from my mom about someone that came to the US to see a hypnotherapist to quit smoking so I thought it was worth it to give it a shot. When I was introduced to Alisa, I was very skeptical and little bit afraid of where all this will take me. I used to smoke almost a pack a day, sometimes more…. After four sessions with her I quit smoking, and not only that but I learned so much about myself. I couldn’t be more grateful to myself and Alisa for taking this journey together. I am now smoke free for 3 and a half years. Did not gain any weight, did not go “crazy” because I don’t smoke anymore. :) It’s just an awesome feeling. I don`t even remember that I used to smoke, and when I do I just praise myself over and over again that I quit. I tell everyone that I know how great my experience was and hope more people will have the courage to go through a journey that will change their lives forever!!!

Anxiety / Self-Acceptance

Absolutely amazing! Exceeded all of my expectations!
I travelled from Washington, D.C., to work with Alisa in Atlanta. I wanted to resolve my childhood trauma, concerns about how I eat, OCPD, and my purpose in life. Let me tell you that I got all of that and much more! Alisa is very smart, intuitive, kind and loving. She is well trained and combines several techniques to find the right treatment. Thank you so much for all your help. Highly recommended!

Anxiety / Relationship

Alisa is amazing. I met her at the end of June 2014 because I found myself in conflict with all of my siblings. Since I am closest to them, I knew that I needed to approach my problem from a different angle. Without knowing it until a few years ago, my parents’ divorce in my childhood really affected me in many different ways. Besides that, I was the oldest child, which came with unwanted responsibility and burden. I had problems with expressing my feelings to myself and with others and had some trust issues. She worked with me on my problems from childhood, as well as those involving people important to me and my professional/personal aspirations.
Alisa is not judgmental and will work with you on what you are comfortable working on. This is because if you are resistant to change, she cannot move the mountains and make miracles happen for you. She is trained in hypnotherapy and I participated in this form of therapy with her on numerous occasions. While Alisa does not force you to do anything you do not want to do, she asks questions that plant seeds in your mind about changes that you should seriously consider for improving yourself as a person. She did this with me through conversation, role-playing, hand-drawings with crayons, videos, articles, in addition to the aforementioned hypnotherapy.
If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask (though it will be at my discretion to answer those that I feel comfortable responding to). I will say that I was one of those people COMPLETELY against seeking therapy, as I had always viewed the field as wishy-washy with no real basis. Alisa changed my mind and I wholeheartedly recommend her.

Confidence & Self Confidence

Alisa Abdullaeva made me feel welcome and very comfortable; I felt that I could talk to her about the matter I was seeking an answer and solution to. During our sessions we talked about various aspects of my personal relationship and work life. Alisa asked questions and then gave me time to reflect and answer accordingly and her was not judgmental or critical”. Alisa’s method of approach was enquiring but not intrusive which allowed me to work through the matters in an open and honest approach. Alisa also helped me to realize how to work on my weaknesses and build on my strengths and confidence. I saw Alisa Abdullaeva to work on my confidence. After our first session I had significant improvement of my confidence level. I was new to hypnotherapy and I was amazed how fast it works. Moreover, it is so profound that even after a year I feel more confident.


I came to Alisa for social phobia and anxiety. Her work, commitment and support have provided me with big changes in my life. My relationship with family members, friends, career and finances has transformed! We are working now on my relationship and commitment. My wellbeing, self-esteem, confidence level is high. I proud to say that I have control in my life now! I suggest to others to value your time asking Alisa for help.

Forgiveness & Inner Peace

If you want to heal and get to the inner peace and love of yourself I would highly recommend Alisa Abdullaeva’s hypnotherapy sessions. She is not a typical therapist with regular sets of techniques and methods, which I really liked. Her sessions have healed my inner child and me from fears and anxiety. She has given me a foundation and the tools to continue my self-discovery journey. For the first time after 10 years of being single I am dating and taking risks in life! My life is enriched as a result of taking her therapy sessions!
