1. Released and Healing from Fear of Water, and more:
44 yr. old woman; Sandy UT
Hypnotherapy has been a game changer for me. I didn’t know what to expect, but I wanted to overcome my fear of water. This was my main reason for contacting Randy Shaw.
My first session, we were able to go to a place of my childhood where I had water poured over my face and it really scared me. I was able to release these feelings of fear and understand where these feelings came from. I didn’t realize that those deep seeded fears that were created on that day have played such a huge roll in my life as an adult. This session was just the ice breaker for me. In many more sessions to come, I was able to release feelings concerning my sisters, as I am the youngest of 6, feelings concerning my mother and husband.
I didn’t realize that every feeling I didn’t feel, I stuffed down inside me, and by stuffing them, I created great dis-ease in my body. I am currently working on acknowledging these feelings so that my physical body can heal, my spiritual body will heal and I will be able to show my feelings and know that it is alright. One of my last sessions, and greatest session with Randy, we were able to dig really deep and discover my real fear of water. I am now able to stand under the shower and allow water to run over my face without freaking out. This is so huge for me and so exciting!
Going to see Randy has been the best decision I have made. I am so much more aware of my feelings and how they really affect me. I look forward to each session because I know that I will be acknowledging and releasing more issues that I have stuffed.
Randy is so warm and comforting. He really makes it easy to let go and dig deep so that healing can happen. He has given me the tools to use so that when a feeling comes up, I am able to acknowledge it and release it. Most recently, I was on the freeway and was getting very anxious. I used one of the tools he provides and the anxiety went away!! It really does work!!
He has an incredible gift and I would recommend him to anyone that is ready for change and to FEEL better. Thank you Randy for assisting me in changing and healing ME!!!
2. From Overwhelming Negative Feelings – To Strength, Peace and Happiness. 52 yr. old woman, Vancouver, BC, Canada
I have been fortunate to work with Randy Shaw at Advanced Hypnotherapy and am grateful for his help in my healing through hypnosis. I had blocked most of my childhood memories and it took me until I was 52 years old and unable to cope with a multitude of losses before I finally sought help. I have learned that healing through hypnosis is not only revisiting painful experiences stored in my subconscious, but it is also dealing with the experiences and feelings again in a healthier and more positive manner than I did as a child. The result is that I have become a stronger and happier person.
I feel safe working with Randy Shaw. Through hypnosis he has guided me through my past experiences with loving kindness and respect while teaching me that the perceptions I had learned through abuse were unhealthy and incorrect. Randy has helped me work through overwhelming negative feelings to the point I was able to forgive myself and my offender, a feat that I had thought impossible. In order to continue my healing process Randy has also encouraged me and given me the tools to work through all of my negative feelings as they arise and to release them completely. These experiences have been empowering and have allowed me to embrace the positive side of life again.
Healing through hypnosis has opened space for peace, joy, and contentment in my life, which were my goals in working with Randy and healing through hypnosis. I am grateful to Randy and feel blessed to have worked with him.
3. Released Painful Issues: Clearer, Empowered Now
53 yr. old woman, Northern Utah
After 40 years of reading every self-help/spiritual book I could get my hands on, trying most of the anti-depressants, and seeing my fair share of therapists, I found Randy! Reading his website and talking with him on the phone, I knew he was the one who could help me with painful issues I held for most of my life. He showed me how to accept and feel my feelings so I could release them. I will use these techniques for the rest of my life so that I don’t get stuck again.
Randy is extremely intuitive and helped me realize some things for the first time. He is able to see the positive intention/motivation behind human behaviors. No blame ~ just understanding, healing and love. He is professional, warm, kind, and has a beautiful, soothing voice. I feel so comfortable and know that I can safely share anything with him. He has done his own healing, and it is obvious to me that his practice is not just a livelihood; it is his passion. He puts his heart and soul into his work.
Thank you Randy ~ I feel so much clearer now, and empowered.
4. Released Anxiety and Fear of Dead, Sleeping Better!
31 yr. old woman, Northern Utah
Randy’s Hypnotherapy has helped me a lot. I have had 5 good sessions. I had suffered with severe anxiety for 11 years and now I feel it’s under control without medication.
Also, I am 31 years old and I had a fear of dead people since I was 11 yrs old, and now I finally do not have that fear (released in 1 session). I sleep much better at night! I am more patient, I am feeling happy in life. Really positive things have happened to me since starting my sessions. Thank you Randy!
5. Released 95 Pounds
25 yr. old woman, Northern Utah
Dear Randy, Earlier this year we met and you helped me to significantly release the negative emotions that have held me bound for many years. I appreciate you sharing your techniques with me which have allowed me to evolve into a much more trusting, confident and clear minded woman. I am also pleased to report that I successfully released 95 pounds from my body since June of this year. I have 45 more pounds to release until I reach my optimal goal.
I know this is possible because of the success I have seen already, as well as through the meditation and positive affirmations I have allowed myself to experience. 2012 has been a majestic and powerful year and I accredit a lot of this to meeting you. Thank you again for your help and time spent with me! I hope you are doing well and am truly grateful for the work we have done together.
6. Olympic Medal Success!
30 yr. old woman, Park City, Utah
When I first came in to see Randy it was 2 1/2 months away from the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver and I had not yet qualified for the team. I was full of anxiety, couldn’t sleep, and felt like my world was crumbling down around me.
Randy and I worked together for the better part of the next few months leading up to the Olympics and every time I left his office I was rejuvenated and filled with the confidence I knew I had inside of me. My skiing instantly improved, I was able to sleep again, and I finally qualified for my 3rd Olympic Team.
Randy made me a relaxation tape that I fell asleep to every night and it was the last thing I listened to before I stepped into the Olympic gate and skied my way to a bronze medal! I owe so much of my performance to Randy and I don’t think I can ever repay him for what he helped me accomplish!!

7. Asthma and Rhinitis Gone
41 yr. old man, Co-Professional, Istanbul, Turkey
I’ve been practicing as a healer and using many healing modalities for many years. My experience taught me that all kinds of chronic illness coming from the emotional and mental blockages which are deeply rooted in the subconscious mind. This understanding took me to learn Age Regression Hypnotherapy from Randy Shaw and Matt Sison in Utah. [Note: Matt is my dear friend and business partner: we teach hypnotherapists and healers from all over the world. www.regression-hypnotherapy.com]
It was the first day (of the Releasing and Healing Boot Camp) and I was talking with Randy about their Advanced Concepts and Methods. At the beginning I couldn’t realize the power of the words but my subconscious mind was already convinced to reveal it’s hidden stress although someone did not ask me to do that consciously. I was staring at the fireplace and suddenly that scene took me back to my six months old trauma. But I wasn’t alone this time and Randy was there to help me so I let myself to feel my feelings.
My mom left me near the fireplace but it was giving out the smoke and that little baby was smothered with smoke. I had very strong abreaction with crying and coughing and it took more than one hour to clear that emotional garbage. I have done four more session over Skype with Randy after I turned back to my country.
I used to have an allergic Rhinitis since my childhood and Asthma for two years, but now all the symptoms are disappeared. I also was so surprised because I never know that I had those kinds of strong emotions like sadness and fear inside of me but now it makes more sense why sadness always affected me when I was working with other clients. I feel more calm and confident as a healer after I released my own issue and emotional blockages.
I’m grateful to know Randy Shaw. I learned many things from him and my health is getting better each and every day.

8. Overcome Anxiety and Fears to Give Peaceful Birth (best birth!)
30 yr old Woman, Utah
Randy I wanted to write and let you know that I had my sweet daughter Sunday morning at 3:10 A.M. Labor was 1 1/2 hours and she weighs 6 pounds 4 oz. She was born into my very own hands. It was the birth of my dreams. It was amazing how focused I was and how amazing I feel. My husband was there to cheer me on and the kids slept through her birth and they woke up minutes after she was born. She was surround by her family the way it should be.
I no longer have fear of birth. Thank you so much for giving me the tools to birth my baby the way I have wanted to for years. My baby is the most peaceful baby I have ever had. My kids want to be help out. Mercedes ( the baby before her arrival ) has not had any problems welcoming the new addition. I wanted to give birth again the very next day. I felt bad that the birth was behind me because it was so amazing. I have never been left with such a high after having this baby. You helped make this possible and I am so very happy that I met you.
9. Overcome Infertility, Restored Self-Love and Respect:
29 yr. old woman, Salt Lake Valley, Utah
My initial reason for contacting Randy was for infertility issues. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for about 10 months, the doctors told me that I was not ovulating at all and put me on fertility medication, which wasn’t working either. I knew the infertility was related to stress and other issues from my past and I felt that Randy could help me release that stress and anxiety, and deal with the issues from my past that I had not fully dealt with yet.
From the first time I spoke with Randy on the phone for a consultation, I knew I was a step in the right direction to help me get back on track. I was having this constant feeling that there were so many things that were wrong with me, and that I was too broken to be fixed. After speaking with Randy on the phone I had this huge sense of relief, and that I knew in just a few weeks I would feel great again.
The first session I got some things out that I thought I had dealt with but was still lingering deep down. The next few days after I had started feeling a lot better. The second session went really well also, I was able to replay situations from my past and then make a new ending to how I would have like the situation to go. Just in doing that in released a lot of my insecurities and misunderstandings I had about myself and my perception of me and my childhood.
My third session really helped me realize that there wasn’t anything “wrong” with me at all and that these huge issues I thought I had were not so bad after all. After just those three sessions with Randy my doctor told me that I am now ovulating and should be pregnant within just a few months.
I have been so much happier with myself and in turn that has helped me be happier with my family and co-workers as well. I can finally look at myself in the mirror and be completely happy with what I see; I am not ashamed of myself anymore. I owe it all to Randy and his persistence to help people move forward in their lives and finally learn to start living a happy life again.
I would recommend Randy to anyone, and I will continue to see him. I really appreciate all that he has done for me and the time that he took with me he made me feel so comfortable and that I could say anything and not be judged. His Hypnotherapy helped me get my life back to where I wanted it and needed it to be. I am so grateful to for all that he has helped me accomplish. I feel like I now have made a life long friend, thanks Randy. [Note: she had a very healthy baby boy!]
10. Overcome Years of Emotional Pain
50 yr. old man, Spanish Fork, Utah
For 14 years I had been struggling with deep seated emotional problems. The emotional issues had apparently been with me for many years, but did not emerge until late 1993 after the death of my wife. Later, I remarried and became a step-father to 3 children, I began to experience serious bouts of anxiety and depression, for no apparent reason.
From 1993 to late 2007 I tried anti-depressants, then talk therapy, and later I learned EFT (emotional freedom technique). These things helped me learn to cope but none cured me. I felt like a caged bird, held down by anxiety, worthlessness, shame and fear.
I met a Hypnotherapist (Marc Carlin, New York) at a business conference in Baltimore in 2007. We became quick friends. I asked him many questions about his work. He answered freely and convinced me that Hypnotherapy was something that I wanted to try. When he learned that I lived in Utah he knew immediately to whom I should be referred, and that person was Randy Shaw.
Randy and I first communicated by phone and email. I felt comfortable with him and knew that I could trust him with my most intimate feelings and fears. Our first session was sublime and powerful. My mind and feelings took us exactly where we needed to go, and it was not what I expected at all. Randy told me, “What we can feel, we can heal.” This statement was very reassuring to me and gave me much comfort. I did feel many feelings that I had learned to stuff deep inside myself. I felt them, but I did not fear them.
Life is much improved for me now after several sessions with Randy. I feel joy and optimism that I have not experienced in many years. In just a few sessions I have made more progress than in the 14 prior years of trying to cope and manage my issues. I’ll likely want to see Randy again, but I expect it will only be for occasional “tune-ups.” The bulk of the healing has already occurred.

11. From Paralyzing Anxiety – to National Taekwondo Champion
54 yr.old Woman, Salt Lake City, Utah
I have studied martial arts for nearly 20 years. Over four years ago I was struggling with anxiety attacks before and during taekwondo fighting competitions. I had reached a level in competition that I couldn’t afford any interferences, and the anxiety that I was experiencing was paralyzing. I had tried reading books on the subject of overcoming sports problems, I had meditated and tried relaxation techniques, all to no avail. I decided to look for professional help, and that was how I discovered Randy Shaw.
I have to say, the process that I went through with Mr. Shaw was no walk in the park, and I discovered, through hypnosis, that my issues were deeply connected with some of my life experiences. Mr. Shaw helped me, with only a few sessions, to address these issues and release them completely. His professional and highly confidential approach put me at ease to release the causes of my distress.
It has been several years since our sessions, and I am happy to say that I can now fight with confidence, relaxed, and in control! I am a 3 times U.S. Open Champion and have won many local, state, and National titles, as well. I am grateful for my “Head” Coach, Randy Shaw, who made this possible for me.
12. Releasing Pain and Overcoming Pornography:
51 yr. old man, Northern Utah
I am writing this reference in hopes that it will give others the opportunity to experience what I have with Randy Shaw. I was at the end of my rope when I looked at Randy’s website. I have spent the last four years in individual counseling, in group therapy, attending 12 step meetings to battle a pornography addiction. While some of those things had helped, none was completely successful. They all tried to heal the addiction through shame, willpower and trust in the lord. I had been asked by my wife to leave our home until I could get things under control. I was as skeptical as anyone when I first went to see Randy, but I was committed to give it a try.
In our first session Randy helped me release some feelings I had inside on an issue that I had not even planned on discussing but it came up. I felt good after the session but still was not sure it worked. I didn’t know how to tell. In our second session we worked on some of the feelings I had with my wife. We worked on releasing my anger and being strong. Again I felt good but didn’t know if it had worked. I know that my urges for pornography had gone way down and I couldn’t explain why. We hadn’t yet worked on my problem with pornography.
Three days after my session I had a major confrontation with my wife and the issues of being out of the home. She verbally threw everything she had at me. She tried to make me mad, she tried to shame me and nothing worked. For the first time I was able to sit calmly and take it and it didn’t hurt. I didn’t have the urge to turn to pornography and I felt powerful. For the first time I knew it worked. I had been working on the wrong things to get rid of my problem. My issue with porn was more about all the emotions I had bottled up inside me that I couldn’t release. I am well on my way to recovery and look forward to our sessions.
I feel so much stronger and freer than I have in 25 years. It’s great. Don’t keep paying those counselors if they are not helping you to release your locked up emotions. It shouldn’t take years. When done with genuine concern and skill it can be done in a much shorter period of time and you will be happier and stronger with the outcome.
*** Report three years later: Completely porn free for years, survived brutal divorce with dignity, has excellent employment utilizing his skill level and being paid well. Living happy, enjoying life and kids.
13. Regained Self-Worth
49 Year old woman, Co-Professional, Canada
For anyone who is considering Hypnotherapy, Randy Shaw is the person to see on many levels. I have known Randy for 5 years. Initially we met through a professional course he was co-teaching and immediately I felt that he was an authentic person who loved his trade and was passionate about elevating other Hypnotherapists to do their best work.
When I needed to address some of my own issues, I did not hesitate to contact Randy and begin Skype sessions to address them. As a Hypnotherapist, he is caring, professional, and a very well trained individual who puts his heart into helping people overcome their blocks to being whole and healthy.
I have worked with Randy on many occasions as a client and there is no other that I would trust my deepest hurts to. He has helped me tremendously in regaining my sense of self worth through his expertise combined with empathy and wisdom.
I recommend Randy without reservation or pause. He is an amazing individual who is, in my estimation, one of the best at his craft.

14. Healed Traumas and Heartaches:
84 yr. old woman, Salt Lake City, Utah
I am an 84 year old woman. Randy Shaw has helped me with his Hypnotherapy through traumas and heartaches so tragic that I could not do it myself. But with his guidance I am now feeling love and gladness when I am reminded of the things of my life that used to give me much pain and sorrow. I’ve learned that I have held onto things in my life that were very troubling, instead of letting them run their course, even from my early childhood experiences. I have felt so much better as I could release and resolve them.
One of my sons died in Viet Nam. For 28 years I did not look at his service medals. With Randy’s help I was able to face this problem, so that I did find love and strength to finally go through his keepsakes, and feel very, very good about it.
Randy has helped me on many levels, teaching me how to help myself. He is kind, gentle and caring, and still very professional. At times he seems to understand my feelings better than I do. The heartaches of my life are much more understandable and acceptable now, and other things in my life are improving as well.
15. Overcoming and Healing From Years of Negative Feelings
24 Year old Man, Utah County
I am thinking back to before I met Randy. It feels like an eternity ago now. I was filled with fear, insecurity, doubts, and uncertainty about myself. These feelings became so strong, that they were a weight that weighed on me every day of my life. They had been with me so long; it was hard to remember a time when they were not my constant companion.
I decided that I no longer wanted these feeling weighing me down, so I decided to seek out help. That is when I discovered Randy and the power of his kind of hypnotherapy. During my sessions with him I was finally able to understand my feelings, where they came from, and what they meant. Now since I understood them, with Randy’s help I was finally able to let them go; no longer having to hold their weight. My life has improved since my sessions with him. I am no longer driven by fear and uncertainty, but by the passion I now have for life.
16. Released Lack Of Courage, at Work and with Women.
27 year old man, Southern Wyoming
I wanted to thank you so much you have changed my life in such a positive way, my life is a much happier place. I am in a wonderful relationship and I have more job offers than you can shake a stick at. You were my life boat in a sea of despair. Even though we haven’t spoken in a year you remain one of the people who has made one of the biggest impacts on my life, I wouldn’t be in this wonderful place without you. I remember you saying that I should come in every once in a while for a – for lack of a better phrase – brain cleaning. Let me know when I can come in?
17. Released Panic from Separation
52 yr. old man, Salt Lake City, Utah
Hello Randy, Thank you for the help you have provided. My wife is out traveling again. (almost 2 weeks) It has been the best situation that I have experienced. Such a relief. I had one little moment of anxiety Sunday, when there were some outside demands from church and family. Good for me to go through and it released quickly.
Truly would not have the emotional relief I have now – without your assistance and direction. Still learning to listen to my body. My meditation is still in need, but the freedom from past situations is again, simply amazing. Thank you so much for your help. It has been a wonderful experience.
18. “I’ve come home, to the Real Me”
50 yr. old woman, Southern Utah
I was at a very low point in my life when I saw a program about hypnotherapy on television and wondered if it would work for me. I had never heard of hypnotherapy before and had serious doubts it would work as well or as quickly as described on TV. After visiting several websites on the internet, however, I decided to call Randy because his site seemed so professional.
At first I asked Randy if he would be able to help me lose weight. I told him I had endured an abusive marriage, which I felt had contributed to my weight gain and he agreed to work with me.
After my first session, I felt as if someone had wrapped a warm blanket around me. I was comforted and felt so peaceful. The feeling lasted until the next session, which was even more productive.
Throughout my visits with Randy I have learned that it’s okay to have feelings (all my feelings) and to appreciate each one for what it brings me. For so many years I had just stuffed my feelings down with food and did not acknowledge them. Now I am no longer numb and I feel as if I’ve come home to the real me.
I would and have recommended Randy to anyone and everyone. He is very professional, caring and personal in his sessions. Once learned, some of the techniques you will learn working with Randy are things you can do on your own that will benefit you the rest of your life. Thank you so much Randy for showing me the way.
19. Relief and Healing from Years of Depression
24 yr. old man, West Jordan, Utah
I used to wake up every morning depressed, feeling like my life was a waste of time and that my existence was pointless. I had struggled with depression for quite some time and looking back at my life it seemed that all I saw was nothing but misery, pain and depression. I had been treated in the past for depression without much success. I was exhausted fighting the fight and at 23 I saw my life coming to a close rather fast.
I was ready for it to come to a close. I had given up all hope but I decided to give hypnotherapy a try as a last resort. Not for me, but for my parents. I expected it to fail, like other therapies, but I told myself that I at least have to give it a try.
After a couple of sessions with Randy I discovered why I felt the way I did. Before, every morning when I would wake up my feelings were firing off red flags and trying to tell me what was wrong but I disregarded them and ignored their message. Randy helped me understand my feelings, their purpose, and their significance. I no longer brush them off and disregard them. I’ve become more conscious of my feelings, more conscious of myself, and my life. I have sluffed off my old ways of thinking and my old life, and in doing so I’ve become a much happier person. I’m a new me.
My life is changing as I continue to change. I look at my life now I see nothing but potential and opportunity. I feel that a new life has begun for me, that I’ve been reborn. A happier, healthier version of myself.
Thank you Randy. You’ve changed my life, but you are also right when you say that it was me who changed it, so I guess I’ll just say WE changed it. I feel like you’ve equipped me with the tools for life that everyone should have. I’ve learned that life doesn’t always have to be about pain, struggle, disappointment and fear. Life can also be about being happy. I’ve learned that it’s okay to be happy. Thank you for everything that you’ve done for me. I can’t imagine what my future would have ended up turning out to be like had I not met you.
20. Rapid Healing Improvements
M. S. (age withheld by request) Salt Lake City, Utah
I have been lucky enough to receive sessions from Randy Shaw. Through the work he has facilitated me through, I have been able to release some deep issues that I wasn’t even aware I was still holding onto in my body and mind. I highly recommend Randy and the compassionate way he guides you through your experience. I feel that the progress I made in just a few sessions was leaps and bounds ahead of other healing modalities.
21. Healing Life-long Traumas:
65 yr. old woman, Seattle, Washington
I have had numerous sessions with Randy Shaw. What struck me first about him is that he was and is genuinely interested in me and my story. He could see that I was in distress: victim of an abusive father and suicidal mother. Memories of my childhood were extremely painful to me. I have had several marriages, all of them ending sadly and with much regret. I had no happy role models for parents. I was the victim of rape and other dangers before I was 37. I was unhappy and desirous even of death, though I never carried it out. My emotional “baggage” caused me much unhappiness in my present marriage and we separated after almost 5 years. I arrived at Randy’s door in sore need of help!
In the first session we worked very hard at reaching unhappy memories, reliving them in order to see them in retrospect and to choose to reject the hurt, sorrow and transferred guilt that they caused me most of my life. (I am 65).
I was AMAZED at the good that session did! I walked out of there many “pounds” lighter. Successive appointments have brought much insight into my early and present life, understanding that my parents’ mindset, problems and failings are not my own responsibility. In learning these things it has been so much easier to forgive them for the turmoil they caused in my life.
Randy’s Hypnotherapy is excellent also for relieving physical pain and working with the subconscious to understand, influence and resolve many problems of the whole body and soul. Randy is a seasoned coach who sometimes seems inspired to know where to look, what to say and do. He has, in a short time, has helped me to peel away many layers of unhappiness and guilt, and to see myself and others in a far more productive, self-loving light. I believe that on our journey through this world we each are directed to mentors who help make the path clearer for us, so that we can progress toward enlightenment at a higher and happier level. My coach, Randy Shaw, is one of those blessed people!
22. Healing Childhood Traumas: 27 yr. old man, Midvale, Utah
Randy was very comforting and easy to work with which made the process much easier to handle. I was familiar with the process, but still felt nervous about bringing up and facing the aspects of myself that had been causing me so much pain. It was absolutely amazing when I discovered the amount of energy I had tied up in past experiences. The realization nearly floored me when I came to understand what I’d been holding onto, what I’d been keeping inside. It was very surprising, maybe even a little disturbing but also extremely liberating.
Each session with Randy allowed me to reframe experiences that were causing me pain and suffering. I was able to go back through these “tragic” events in my life and face them with new wisdom. With help I was able to find the good in each of the situations I dealt with. This enabled me to understand the experiences I went through from a different perspective and with greater awareness. I let go of the anger and fear surrounding these memories and allowed love and wisdom to replace them. Through this work I have been able to claim parts of myself I thought I’d lost. Going through with this has truly been a life changing event. I have found renewed strength for life and relationship. I have even been asked by those around me “what have you done? You seem different, better.” And for this I am very grateful.
23. Released Panicked Feelings: 47 yr. old woman, Northern Idaho
I have recently started using the process and I can’t tell you how much it has changed my life. When I’m feeling overwhelmed with feelings, I simply get my notes and read them and do exactly what they say and after several times going through the process I feel centered and in control. I realize I am okay and I can let go of the negative feelings and replace them with a positive way of getting through. THANK YOU!
24. Happiness and Confidence (instead of sadness and confusion)
30 yr old woman, Northern Utah
Randy I wanted to tell you how great I have been. And that I got a new job that I am totally excited for. After coming to you I truly know what it’s like to just be happy about life. I feel happier now than I ever have. I am not sure how I got such amazing results. But I love it!!!! 🙂 And other great things have happened for me also. My relationships with people are better and I do feel like I am a better friend. A lot of people can tell I am just happier. I am actually nicer and happier to people in general. Making eye contact has always been something I have struggled with and now I am sooooo much better. I have actually been told I have very good eye contact. People have also told me they love how positive upbeat and happy I am. Something I never was before. Thanks again for everything… I will be in touch soon, to do a tune up…
25. Released Anger, Attained Peace and Happiness
37 yr. old man, Spanish Fork, Utah
I went to Randy for anger issues four years ago. Today (7/7/2013), I use the same tools that he taught me, to bring peace and balance back from the thunderstorms of life. Looking back, my life is so much better, fulfilling, and peaceful than ever before. I recognize issues and can clear them, I have more compassion for others, and I’m doing things I could only barely dream about four years ago.
My relationship with my kids is finally one that I have wanted. They can talk to me, and express their love. My romantic relationships are better than ever; they are real, kind, and special. I’m showing my kids by example of how relationships can be. I’m doing things I feel like I have always wanted to do but never even dreamed that I could.
The biggest change is me. My awareness, acceptance, peace, and the ability I have inside of me, and how I feel about myself is the greatest change. It’s how I can accept myself and able to find the good in everything.
I wasn’t a onetime thing (7 sessions over 4 years), but it was the beginning of something that was real and worked. It’s like the day somebody was cured of cancer, or an addiction, or an abuse going on, that is how I feel about the day I learned and did hypnotherapy with Randy that has changed my life forever. Some people say when the student is ready the teacher will appear. Thank you Randy for being the teacher I needed.
If you have found Randy like I did there is a reason. May you find the healing and peace I have found.
26. Released Anger, Resentment, Made Room for Good Feelings:
57 yr. old woman, Salt Lake City, Utah
My first session was very intense. And of course, I had no idea what to expect. But afterwards I felt some relief and couldn’t stop thinking about it on the way home. When I got home I got real busy and didn’t think about it too much. After the second session I started to realize how long I had been suppressing my true feelings and how that was affecting my life today. A few days later I started to really clean up my house and do some things that I had been putting off. I started to understand how much my husband loves me. And I’ve been able to feel better about the relationship with my mother.
After my third session I started having dreams about people and places from my past, and sometimes even during my daily routine I have flashes of situations that bothered me. And I feel a lot better about them now, less anger, less resentment, and more good feelings about myself and where I am today. I really appreciate Randy Shaw. He’s always been very kind and professional in all of my sessions. He’s really helped me to help myself. I feel that it’s one of the smartest decisions that I’ve ever made.
27. Released Negative Feelings and Beliefs
35 yr. old woman, Summit County, Utah
Throughout our sessions I was able to see that I had been “bottling up” negative feelings and holding on to them until I was ready to burst. Now I allow myself to have and enjoy every feeling that I have, even those that are supposed to be bad ones. I have been able to release the negativity that I unconsciously held inside. I was able to see that disappointment is not something I needed to hide or bury inside. Instead I can learn and grow from it.
Being able to release feelings that are negative and holding me back has made it possible for me to grow and has allowed me to begin a process of change that has brought about a person that I love more than I ever thought possible. And that person is me.
Randy has taught me so much and now I have been able to become so much more confidant in myself that at age 35 I have gone back to college and I am getting into my life all the wonderful things that I want. Thank you Randy for everything you have taught me. Thank you for showing me that the rest of my life is an opportunity for me.
28. Releasing Fear and Weakness, Finding Power and Strength
29 year old man, Idaho.
Hey Randy, I just wanted to thank you, the sessions I had with you. They changed my life. When I got back to work I was a changed man. It was just like you said about the art of war, I won without fighting. I haven’t been talked down to after the first day he started to say something derogatory and I just said “I’m busy right now kitten.” It totally changed our relationship now I get all the complex jobs and I nail them all. I couldn’t have done it without you my friend. My whole life is better thank you.
29. Set Free From Negative Feelings About Old Boy Friend
30 Year Old Woman, Utah
Randy, I was amazed at how fast you helped me let go the feelings I was holding about my old boy friend. I had felt miserable for over a year and you helped me release those feelings in my first session. I rarely even think about him anymore! Thank you for helping me clear up many other painful memories in my other sessions and thank you for teaching me that I can release feelings and know that I am a good person. I look forward to working with you when I start my next project!
30. Created Lasting Changes
Co-Professional, New York City, New York
Over the years Randy was a mentor and has become a friend. My first session with Randy was back in 2010 when I (as a hypnosis professional) took his Regression Hypnotherapy boot camp training. It was a huge breakthrough in my healing and definitely paved a different path for how I would work with clients.
Randy is a master at de-tangling an overwhelming situation and bringing it to the core emotion. Peeling away the emotional layers in order to gain clarity but most importantly freedom from triggers and painful memories. His compassionate approach has allowed me to open up with trust, and the sessions I have had with him have helped me create lasting change in my life.

31. Co-Professional Compliments
Randy Shaw practices what he preaches which was very important to me. As a teacher, mentor, and therapist his compassion and knowledge always shined through. His warmth and wisdom in sessions could be felt and he always seem to intuitively know exactly what needed to be said. Sessions felt effortless and the lessons learned were spot on. Follow-up time after sessions, Randy was eager to support me in what came up for me and assisted my learning. I felt heard and understood, and most importantly safe to heal.

32. Gained His True Voice, Chocolate Addiction Gone
Leyland, United Kingdom
Even some 2 years later I’m still amazed to notice the ongoing impact of how the work we did together has changed my life. I find it easier to say the things I want to say, and to say them honestly and openly without creating offense. It feels as if a communication door has been opened. The memories we worked on were a big factor in creating the whole “children should be seen and not heard” scenario that I had carried in some situations, and which now has gone.
As a side point my so called “chocolate addiction” has gone. I have the choice to eat as much or as little as I like. I remember the first time I experienced this was 2 days after our session and I have to say it felt weird (but weird good) to politely refuse any more chocolate. The look on my wife’s face was also magical.
So once again, thank you.

34. Released To Live With Confidence And Happiness, Co-Professional
Being a hypnotherapist myself, I have been searching for the “right” person to successfully help me go through the hypnotherapy process. After talking with Randy for an extended period of time I knew he was the right person for me. I flew to Utah and we completed four consecutive sessions in four days. Randy was very understanding and patient and I felt very comfortable with him.
By using Hypnosis to bypass the barriers I had accumulated over the years, Randy helped me to find myself underneath all of my many layers. I had layers of sadness, anger and guilt that I didn’t consciously realize I was holding on to. He helped me to recognize and face my true inner feelings that I was hanging on to, and helped me to learn and understand that it is ok to release negative feelings. I understand now that those unresolved feelings were holding me back from being the confident and happy person that I always wanted to be.
It has been a few months now since my sessions with Randy and I feel much better about myself and my life. I am happy, content, and at peace with myself. I experienced four awesome sessions with Randy and would recommend him to anyone!

35. Gained Confidence, Happiness and Positive Energy
I wanted to tell you how great I have been. And that I got a new job that I am totally excited for. Remember when I came in cause I had a lead on a job. Well I got it!
After coming to you I truly know what it’s like to just be happy about life. I feel happier now than I ever have. I am not sure how I got such amazing results. But I love it!!!! 🙂
And other great things have happened for me also. My relationships with people are better and I do feel like I am a better friend. A lot of people can tell I am just happier. I am actually nicer and happier to people in general.
Making eye contact has always been something I have struggled with and now I am sooooo much better. I have actually been told I have very good eye contact. People have also told me they love how positive upbeat and happy I am. Something I never was before.
Thanks again for everything… I will be in touch soon, to do a tune up…

36. Kept Trying, Found Success
Thank you Randy for your methods. I had tried hypnosis twice before and neither experience helped. Even in my first session (with you) I knew I had found the right person to help me. I FELT the difference in my body and my mind. I will use your methods to help me the rest of my life.

37. Reclaimed Lost Parts of Him Self, Renewed Strength for Life and Relationship
I found the initial consultation reassuring and felt confident in my decision to go ahead. Randy was very comforting and easy to work with which made the process much easier to handle. I was familiar with the process, but still felt nervous about bringing up and facing the aspects of myself that had been causing me so much pain
It was absolutely amazing when I discovered the amount of energy I had tied up in past experiences. The realization nearly floored me when I came to understand what I’d been holding onto, what I’d been keeping inside. It was very surprising, maybe even a little disturbing but also extremely liberating.
Each session with Randy allowed me to reframe experiences that were causing me pain and suffering. I was able to go back through these “tragic” events in my life and face them with new wisdom. With help I was able to find the good in each of the situations I dealt with. This enabled me to understand the experiences I went through from a different perspective and with greater awareness. I let go of the anger and fear surrounding these memories and allowed love and wisdom to replace them.
Through this work I have been able to claim parts of myself I thought I’d lost. Going through with this has truly been a life changing event. I have found renewed strength for life and relationship.
I have even been asked by those around me “What have you done? You seem different, better.” And for this I am very grateful.
