    If you are struggling to break free of certain habits or negative thoughts I would Highly recommend Empowered Hypnosis. Selena is so gracious and accommodating, as well as Caterina! I’ve been to a couple of different hypnotists in the past and no one compares to Caterina. She is absolutely amazing. She genuinely cares, listens, and will help you in any way she possibly can! It’s so comforting and refreshing to speak to someone with such an honest and caring soul.

    “I had the pleasure to have aromatherapy session with Rebecca, it was professional, on time and very relaxing. She has great healer personality, and you get way more than just a massage. I need to find more time and care for myself by Rebecca – thank you :)

Great change doesn’t happen by accident. It happens by choice. Choose to call them now!”

    “I met Selena one afternoon last summer. I had been given a gift of One Hypnosis session for smoking cessation at Empowered Hypnosis. On the day or so before it expired I made the call.
    With my appointment scheduled and almost no resolve to actually quit smoking, I made my way to their offices. In fact, I bought a pack of American Spirits on my way to my session. I remember it very clearly, I wanted to smoke and didn’t have any so I bought some and besides as soon as I was finished with my hypnosis I’d want one before I got home…or so I thought.
    I arrived a few minutes early and Selena was finishing up with another appointment. She greeted me in the lobby and invited me to her office. The first thing I noticed was the calmness, the tranquility. A chill, comfortable office that smelled divine. And while I was the biggest skeptic in all of NYC at that moment I figured I’d play along.
    She first explained what we could expect, we talked about my background, motivation and desire. After she felt she had an understanding of me we began. Starting with relaxation she walked (or more accurately, talked) me through the stages into a deep trance. I was so relaxed. When one is in this state, the subconscious is more open to suggestion. So while I don’t remember exactly what we said or did I do know that when Selena had me ‘wake up’ (by smiling) I was a non-smoker. No, really I no longer smoked! And that pack of cigarettes I bought at the Bodega for $14 I threw in the trash can in her office. And then my lighter.
    It is an understatement to say I was dubious. I still am BUT IT WORKED. I have since seen another hypnotist or two for other matters but none compare to Selena. Really, don’t waste your time or money. And it is worth noting that I am writing this review almost 1 year after that visit. Selena, I don’t know if you remember me, but I remember you and you changed my life. Thank you.”

    “Selena is absolutely amazing. I was always skeptical about this kind of therapy until I had my first session with her. She has a warm personality with concern for her clients and I was easily able to fall into a trance by the sound of her voice. Just after my first set of weekly sessions I felt so empowered and noticed changes in my lifestyle habits going back to where they should be. It is now second nature to me to make smarter choices. I am a hundred times happier and proud of myself than I was when I first stepped into the Lexington office.”

    “Selena’s awesome. Selena and the Empowered Hypnosis Centers have changed my outlook, mindset and hence my life! I have been going to them for approximately 2 years now, and it was not till I started going more consistently- did I start noticing the subtle changes and shifts in my life and my reactions. As the sublime Selena always says- practice makes perfect. This is a lot more than just hypnosis, it is a life coaching, life altering experience. With her upbeat positive personality and beaming, beautiful face Selena guides you to recognize what lies within.. your patterns, your internal dialogue, the way you say or see things and works with your goals to enhance or alter these patterns as need be. For me she is like Sunshine- Vital and nourishing and my practice with her as made me more positive, centered, confident and generally amazing! I can’t recommend her and this office enough. Thank you!”

    “I’ve had three sessions with Caterina Romano, and they have been wonderful! Caterina is so good at talking you through the hypnosis, describing helpful visualizations and coming up with thoughtful, productive metaphors. It’s great discussing what you need to work on with her, too. She’s sensitive and insightful, and in addition to working the things we spoke about into the hypnotherapy itself, she also taught me some excellent techniques for relaxing and focusing, for breaking through resistances and cultivating a state of flow with my work. I highly recommend working with Caterina!”

    “I’ve been here twice in the past and each time I found it was very helpful. The first time I didn’t know what to expect. Yes the office was tiny but I wasn’t bothered by that at all. Once you get in the chair and get in the zone your mind is in a completely different place. I left the first session feeling very positive. The second session I had was very helpful as well. I was feeling particularly anxious about an audition and once I saw Selena she helped me put all those anxious thoughts out of my mind and I was ready to focus on my audition. I would definitely recommend anyone to go visit Selena especially if you need to work on your positivity outlook”

    “I’ve had 3 sessions with Selena and they all have been excellent. I was skeptic that it wouldn’t work and was very pleasantly surprised and happy with the results. She is very good at what she does and I’m so happy to have found her! Thanks Selena!!”

    “Selena is really wonderful. She greeted me right at my scheduled appointment time and discussed what I felt I needed help with. We even wound up walking out together and taking the train downtown, both headed in the same direction. In speaking to her outside of the office, I learned even more about what drew her to hypnosis and how it really can be beneficial… even if it is just a placebo effect. I think that I’ll definitely be back for another appointment. It can’t hurt. And if nothing else, it’s an hour in a quiet room, comfortable and hearing about how great you are/can be. Win/win.”

    “My girlfriend and I went to Empower. We were skeptical but curious with regards to the efficacy and process of hypnosis. So we each set up a 50 minute appointment with Selena. It was a very simple and professional scheduling process. When we arrived, we waited a few minutes until she was done with her previous client. My girlfriend elected to go first. She decided to have Selena help her with her anxiety and deep seated past issues. Upon finishing, I immediately noticed her calm, pleasant demeanor which was encouraging as I got ready for my session. Selena was both professional and friendly as she led me into a room with a wonderfully comfortable reclining chair. She dimmed the lights, turned on gentle ambient music. She asked me about what I wanted to accomplish. I wanted to work on personal accountability and follow through with my business and so our 50 minutes began. She guided me into a relaxed mindset then gently took me through a series of general and topic specific affirmations. I was shocked by how much I relaxed and opened my mind, gently led by Selena’ visualization techniques and incredibly soothing voice. At the end of the session, she calmly brought me back to reality (much to my dismay!). My girlfriend and I left very satisfied and would strongly recommend Empower and Selena to anyone with an interest in self betterment (which honestly should be everyone).”

    “I have had a few experiences here and all have been amazing. I recently had an aromatherapy body rub with Rebecca and absolutely want to make this something I try to fit into my schedule more often. Beautiful atmosphere – the room smelled amazing and my masseuse was so knowledgeable, friendly, and offered some amazing tips for stress relief. Also came in for an initial hypnosis consultation a while ago and this is another really cool thing I want to fit in. They really help you deal with what it holding you back and create great healthy habits in a gradual, positive, & stress free way. So whether you’re getting a massage or more spiritual advice I really recommend empowered hypnosis.”
