    Nancy Donenfeld has been my business coach/therapist off and on for almost 10 years and she has truly changed my life for the better. I was initially struggling with motivation problems as I tried to launch a small business. With Nancy's guidance and aid in clearing self-made obstacles, my business has grown to surpass my wildest expectations. In my personal life, I continually chose the wrong women and my relationships were filled with anxiety and discord. Nancy was instrumental in my reconnecting with an old girlfriend whom I married nine years ago and who is my true life partner. I never thought I would ever find 'the' one but I now understand what it's like to be with someone who I'm committed to for the rest of my life. Nancy is incredibly astute and her advice is clear and concise. She explains from day one what issues she sees that need fixing. She guides you through it and works with you to make the correct decisions, which always come from a place of kindness and doing the 'right' thing. I highly recommend Nancy and her unique coaching methods to anyone looking to make their lives the best they can be. Thank you, Nancy! Dan Hampton Bays, NY

    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). 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.

    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.

    I hit a low lower than I think I ever went. Somehow I came across Nancy's website, it appealed to me - very, straightforward and I called her. I had hardly ever left my apartment after I got home from work and on Saturdays and Sundays as well. Weight loss and weight gain and being overweight was a big part of my identity. With Dr. Donenfeld's kind and wise help and amazing system, so far, I have lost 40lbs in the past 7 months and I still am continuing to make progress. I'm never going back and I owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Nancy. She did save my life, literally and figuratively.

    I saw Nancy when my life was in shambles.I was unemployed for over a year & deep in debt. I smoked 3 packs of cigarettes a day, was really stressed out and to top it off, I was totally addicted to sleep meds. I did a ton of research & the best, most insightful therapist seemed to be Nancy Donenfeld, but she was in NYC and I lived in W. Virginia.She encouraged me to use Skype to save money, but I wanted to do it in person.I borrowed money and went to NYC for the weekend. Let me tell you all out there-she is by far the best thing I have come across. She turned some of my attitudes and these pesky habits fully around. I would have never, in a million years thought this could happen so fast! Now it's been over 1 year and I'm still fully off the sleep meds, a good sleeper, a non smoker and a so much more relaxed person!! Her gorgeous office was a pleasure and for her incredible skill, insight, wisdom, style and deep caring, I cannot thank her enough! She's definitely the best of the best!

    I got over my fear of driving in just 1 session. I was able to drive out to Pennsylvania this past summer without any anxiety or panic that some car might hit me, as I always had before I saw Nancy. Actually, I got nervous for a moment right at first but it seemed to disappear right away. Before her I couldn't even picture myself in the passenger seat of a car and I'm now in the driver's seat without even any of that old overwhelming panicky feeling at all! A million thanks to the greatest and most favored hypnotist!

    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.

    I was formally a 2 pack a day cigarette smoker; NOW I'm a non-smoker after 1 session with Nancy. It has been five solid months since I left my last pack in Nancy's office. I am quite astonished by how well it worked. I recommend anyone who is willing to change their habits to go see Nancy.

    Gigantic progress - Very happy with the results.

    10/03/2012

    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 lbs. and after that my weight went straight downhill. In 3 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.

    My entire experience with Nancy Donenfeld was certainly a memorable one. I came in for major control issues. I got to a point where I felt I had lost complete control of myself and my life. I was in really bad shape. Her expertise and delivery in the area of Psychotherapy has proven to be a valuable asset to me (and I'm sure to anyone with other issues). Her office is also beautiful and silent, like an oasis and I loved going there. Not only have I gained a dramatic raise in my overall level of happiness but I've also so much more come to terms with myself, who I am etc. Not only that, but I am much healthier now - over the course of time, my physical health has improved significantly because of my work with Nancy. She's helped me in so many areas. It truly has been a wonderful and amazing experience, as her other patients describe in these recommendations about her that I've read. In fact, I will be getting married in exactly 3 months time and going to Tahiti for my honeymoon. This all never could have happened without the work I did with Nancy. So much in my life has been positive since Nancy, to say the least. She changed my life.....

    My two sessions with Nancy changed my life

    I've developed a whole new habit thanks to Nancy. I've started on an exercise regimen and have been on it now for 4 months. As a result, I've dropped a total of 15lbs. I got so motivated from my two sessions with her, that I decided to come up with new and improved ways to feel good about myself and life. There was not a sound to be heard outside of her 30th floor office and her voice is a delight. I can tell you that I am exceedingly impressed with Nancy's "Donenfeld Method". Because of her, my whole life now seems to be turning around for the better, AND I'm still going down in weight and exercising regularly.

    I went to see Nancy when I was severely depressed, fearful and anxious. I never had the courage to say "no" to anyone or stand up for myself in any way. I had a people pleasing attitude and I let everyone step all over me. I harbored so much resentment and jealousy that I couldn't deal with it anymore. I was suffering through some bad relationships and my health was getting compromised. Also, my ability to concentrate was at my lowest at work and I made continuous mistakes. I was in trouble and I knew something had to change or else I'd end up on anti depressants for the rest of my life. A very close friend of mine said that I had to call Nancy Donenfeld. My life is so drastically different now compared to my former life of pain and misery that I had led and brought upon myself for such a long time that I can't even begin to describe. For the first time, I feel I can function normally, like a human being (literally). I have gained a tremendous amount of power over my own life and I feel alive. I'm SO much happier now. I've made TREMENDOUS progress from the sessions we've had and the recordings she's made. Nancy is an angel and I owe it all to her (and to myself as well, of course!)

    I too had some remarkable experiences with Nancy Donenfeld. Right when I was at my "lowest" point desperate to make a change, I took the higher path and sought help from her. I was very stubborn and I refused to listen to any of my friends who encouraged me profusely to go see a therapist for my depression and general anxiety. I just couldn't stand the fact that I'd have to be in therapy for most of my life, but I thought I had no choice - I had to find someone to help me immediately - someone with a lot of knowledge and experience. After doing some research online (the internet is amazing) I found Nancy Donenfeld. The incredible reviews and testimonials written about her and the well written content of her website inspired me to make an appointment. They all proved to be true! It took 5 sessions to get me out of the "rut". I never would have imagined it to be so rapid and effective especially for someone with such deep issues as myself. Her office up on the 30th floor is like serene. I never felt as relaxed and content in my life as I felt during and after our therapy sessions. I don't know what her secret is but I can see why so many of her patients love her. She really helps you make the changes you want. She keeps everything positive and in the present and all the "negativity" and "doubt" seems to vanish. My entire experience with her was a remarkable one.

    Nancy is amazing! In 2 sessions she got me over my aversion to exercise and got me motivated. She got me over a very unhealthy fixation on a man I know. Nancy also got me to think in healthier in a few other areas of my life. Everything's a choice. Nancy gave me a full 60 minute hour, rather than the 45 minute "hour" that others do. I appreciated the fact that she also didn't have me filling out forms and squandering away time speaking with secretaries and "assistants". She is available to you. She has always answered her own telephone and spoken with me. I appreciate that too. Throughout our 2 sessions, Nancy made me feel as though I was the most important person alive. Time didn't exist. I've made so much progress because of those 2 sessions so the cost was absolutely well worth it. Her voice is great and I'm so glad she made a recording of part of our session. I have listened to it often. I can highly recommend Nancy to anyone.
