Testimonials

I’ve tried to work with therapists who consider their approach is Somatic, but Jennifer is the real deal.

My work with Jennifer Welch has been very helpful. She is well trained, I’ve tried to work with therapists who consider their approach is Somatic, but Jennifer is the real deal. She has the very careful talent of closely listening, watching body for signals to further the work and provide an authentic relationship that gives me the comfort that I have “partner”, the hope I have a path forward, and someone who can stick with me and this tough process.

I honestly don’t have the adequate words to explain how the trauma inside of me has expelled some of itself and energy has shifted.

I’m no stranger to talk therapy, but after years with no healing and only “getting by”, I sought out information on different forms of therapy. I found Jennifer by looking up somatic experiencing practitioners. Jennifer has been an incredible practitioner and has helped me significantly in a year and a half. She is gentle, provides a safe space, has great energy around her, and is very educated on the mind-body connection. I am so impressed with how she has expanded her therapy beyond many practitioners. Hypnotherapy and cellular release therapy has been absolutely life-changing and I would recommend her a million times over! I honestly don’t have the adequate words to explain how the trauma inside of me has expelled some of itself and energy has shifted. I am starting to feel whole again and not in constant fight or flight. Therapy is hard work, but Jennifer facilitates it so well! She has taught me a lot about how we hold things in our body and I have been able to use the knowledge outside of sessions as well. I really look forward to our sessions and am eager to see how my journey continues.

Since committing to work with Jennifer there has not been a day I am not thankful for what we have been able to accomplish.
Being a detail-oriented person I was hesitant to take that first step and seek help from Jennifer. I found myself contemplating all of the unknown what ifs of therapy. Since committing to work with Jennifer there has not been a day I am not thankful for what we have been able to accomplish. I have no doubt that she can help you, my only question today is are you willing and ready to receive it?

I cannot speak more highly of the work Jennifer offers to others, and will confidently recommend her services to anyone and everyone looking to learn, grow, and connect mind and body to any extent. 

Working with Jennifer has given me a completely new perspective on "therapy" and what I can learn and do through, and with, her services. I originally sought hypnotherapy in hopes that it would help with my work efficiency and effectiveness. Little did I know that would only be scratching the surface of what I would learn and understand through our work together. As a seasoned veteran of utilizing therapy for myself, I can say with the utmost confidence that Jennifer's services are far and beyond what you may experience in a more typical form of therapy. She is able to connect so deeply with a part of me that I hadn't really ever explored, let alone sat with and listened to. In doing that, she opened up parts of me that needed a voice, some healing, and compassion. I have had unspeakable events occur in my life since working with Jennifer, some of which were deemed not "medically possible". Through each experience, I had her to come back to - and I am and will always remain grateful for her unconditional ability to hold space for me, no matter how real or how spiritual the experiences are that I needed to work through. The Cellular Release services have allowed my body to move from a constant state of hypervigilance to a more relaxed, confident, and aware state - making all aspects of life a little easier to face or handle. I cannot speak more highly of the work Jennifer offers to others, and will confidently recommend her services to anyone and everyone looking to learn, grow, and connect mind and body to any extent.

 I was trying to figure out what the difference was between last year and this and then I realized that it was the cellular trauma release that I did with you that made the HUGE difference.

Not only is Thanksgiving this week, but today in particular is usually the hardest day of the year for me.  You see, today is the 6th anniversary of the day my daughter was diagnosed with leukemia.  While her birthday and the day she died are also difficult for me, it is actually today that I grieved the hardest.  My daughter was always extremely intuitive.  I had taken her into the emergency room (3rd time in about as many weeks) and before we had even seen the doctors, she told me that she was very sick, that they would figure out today what it was and that she was not going home any time soon.  I asked her if she would be ok.  There was a really long pause that told me what I did not want to hear, and then she said in this really sweet voice "I am going to be fine Mom".  It took her 3 months to die, but I knew in that moment I would lose her.

Each year since, it is this anniversary that is the most difficult and it is the one that is forgotten by every one except me. I have been totally incapacitated each year since.  Only not today.  I am good, even fine.  If I touch the sensitive memories (such as writing the above), tears run briefly and then I am ok again.

It happened this year on her birthday in October (10/10) too.  I had an amazing day.  I took her birthday off, went driving to look at the fall foliage with my friend, told happy stories about her, about her birth, enjoyed the beautiful autumn day.  Not to say that there were not tears - of course there were - but I look back on that day with surprise and thought "Wow, I was really good".  I was just talking with my friend about how amazing it is that her birthday and today have been so good.  I was trying to figure out what the difference was between last year and this and then I realized that it was the cellular trauma release that I did with you that made the HUGE difference.

After two sessions I have moved on and have done the right thing, the seemingly impossible thing.  I am on a course that has meaning for me and feels true.

I felt incredibly stuck in my life. For all matters on the outside my life looked incredible. A great job earning good money, a 10-year relationship with a good man who I am now creating a successful business with, living in the country on a farm (my dream) …and yet my inside knowing was this was all wrong. I felt panicky most of the time. I had abandoned a huge part of myself while being in the relationship. I lived with this constant feeling of being lost, knowing what I needed to do yet not having the power to do it, all the while I felt I had no right to be unhappy. The struggle was horrible. I’m a woman who has traveled all over the world by herself, have such a capacity and for love of life, never been married (I am 58 years old), and have experienced wonderful relationships and adventures. How did I get to this point?  I was lying to myself…. for years about the relationship. Although he is a very good man, he is also not a very good man. It is called being human. There was a lot of emotional abuse. And to be honest, I could not confront my errors safely with him. I messed up, he messed up and I needed space so badly to hear my own voice.

The short story is I saw Jennifer’s website and learned about her history. I loved the fact that she has gone through a similar experience to what I went through and found a new way of living and being through the techniques she practices and as a result found meaning and peace.  She found a lot of goodness for herself, a life that works. I wanted that. I was skeptical at first.  I’ve never been to a hypnotist. My childhood was rich in visual meditations, so I thought it could be a match.

Jennifer listened…. really listened to why I had sought her out.  She heard me.  She wanted to know what my goal was in seeking her help. I wanted to create a life of peace and meaning, and I didn’t feel I had the courage to walk away from the life I had created which I knew I had to do in order to move on. I asked if it was possible that she could help me.  And she said yes.  After two sessions I have moved on and have done the right thing, the seemingly impossible thing. I am on a course that has meaning for me and feels true.

Her voice is sweet, her presence is sweet.  She is a true healer.  I honestly do not know how it works, but she helped to facilitate the deep healing I needed to move on.  So quickly. I will say this.  I believe that Jennifer’s gift is helping those who truly want to change.  Her gift is real. I believe that a significant part of Jennifer’s capacity to facilitate healing is her heart truly desires to heal others and to share techniques that do work.  If you truly seek change and need help, I would highly recommend Jennifer.

…the Cellular Release work you did with me was successful way beyond what I expected…

I just have to tell you that the Cellular Release work you did with me was successful way beyond what I expected or thought was possible! I’ve had two days back at school, and am playing confidently and well! Before the holiday break I was playing timidly and did not have the alertness I needed to do a good job. I was at a point of thinking that my playing/performing days were numbered and just hoped that I could finish out the year. I was loading up on Brain Pep and other brain supplements in a frantic attempt to improve my performance. I was worried about going back because I’m out of all those supplements, and thought I would ‘crash and burn’. So it looks like I just needed to clear out a lot of ‘stuff’ that was weighing me down – and you did it with the Cellular Release! I now feel I can actually fulfill my destiny and be of service to others.

...I experienced a greater degree of liberation from feelings of persecution and my own concerns about what others thought of me.

My sessions with you were very helpful and healing. I always felt that you were completely present and attentive to my needs and what I was trying to express. When you guided me through various meditations, you made me feel very at ease. Your voice was very gentle but clear and strong, which assisted more than I can say in getting me to a deeper and deeper meditative state. After our sessions, I noticed my dreams and other incidents in life seemed to reflect and reinforce the work we were doing. You remember, I was specifically working to release feelings and patterns of rejection in my life, and coincidentally, as I released, a couple of individuals that I felt rejected by, contacted me. Ultimately, I experienced a greater degree of liberation from feelings of persecution and my own concerns about what others thought of me. I am very grateful to you for the generosity of your spirit and your professional gifts.

…the moment we started working I felt welcomed, safe, validated and acknowledged and that is where the true healing started.

There are not enough words to express how grateful I am of having the opportunity to work with you and to have experienced the mastery of your talent to guide people, into total body, mind and soul healing!

For me it was an absolute leap of faith to try something new, having experienced almost everything out there, my mindset was skeptical, however, the moment we started working I felt welcomed, safe, validated, and acknowledged and that is where the true healing started.

Your ability to create a judgment free healing space and the kindness and mindfulness of your guidance during the many cellular release and hypnotherapy processes, allowed me not only to claim myself back but to enjoy life again. For guiding me to a path of the rediscovery of my true self, just for that, I know I have been blessed to have met you!!! Thank you, Jennifer.

You helped me find peace.

You helped me find peace. Whenever I am having a rough day or a bad time, I can simply go to that quiet place inside and take a break. You have no idea how much this has helped. I feel much calmer. Thank you.

I performed yesterday and was wondering where that weird, horrible nervous feeling was… and it never showed up!

I just thought I would give you a little update about how your hypnotherapy sessions have helped me. Firstly, voice lessons are now so much fun and my teacher has noticed a huge difference! I am able to go in there (no nerves at all like before!) and focus throughout the whole lesson. I have not cried in a single lesson (this used to be a typical thing due to nerves). I laugh at my mistakes now instead of freaking out and getting upset. Singing high notes in the top of my voice is now so much fun, and I don’t tense up and worry about it when I’m warming up.

As for performing, I’ve noticed a huge difference in my nerves! I used to feel ridiculously nervous before performing, often even the night before. Now, I feel a little excited and anxious before I perform, but once I get up there I am completely focused. I am able to make technical and artistic decisions on stage without being scared. I performed yesterday and was wondering where that weird, horrible nervous feeling was… and it never showed up!

I was just cast in my first professional role after two intense days of auditioning, and I felt so relaxed and confident. I have no doubts that the work you did with me is the reason I was cast.   Thank you so much. You have really helped me get my love of singing and performing back.

I haven’t smoked since our session and basically feel like there is no going back.

Jennifer, I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that today, it is officially 3 months since I stopped smoking. I told you I would drop you a line and let you know how things are going. I haven’t smoked since our session and basically feel like there is no going back. Especially now- since my husband and I are expecting our first child. I am looking forward to working with Fertile Ground for my prenatal and postpartum care. I had such a good experience with the hypnotherapy. My husband saw how the hypnotherapy worked for me and is seriously considering it for himself. Again, thank you for your help.

I would absolutely recommend Jennifer Welch to anyone, as well as experiencing hypnotherapy.

What I experienced through hypnotherapy was extremely profound to me, and came at such a time in my life when I was open to experiencing something different, and needed to. I am a firm believer in the healing power of focused mental energy used to heal and connect the whole body; this is what the mind is for. To further develop and help evolve our physical bodies, so we can explore what we truly wish for. This experience only further solidified my beliefs in the mind-body connection. I would absolutely recommend Jennifer Welch to anyone, as well as experiencing hypnotherapy at least once in this lifetime.

I really feel much more free and light!

Thank you so much for your wonderful work! I really feel much more free and light! Every time an old pattern threatens to creep in, I just remind myself that it’s gone, and am rewarded with peace and trust! You are helping me heal in an amazing way.

…this amazing therapy has allowed me to overcome an obstacle that was holding me back from living the life I wanted.

For 40 years I have struggled with weight issues. I tried everything under the sun but my body just kept putting on the weight. It wasn’t until I found this healing modality that I found the answers. Weight was just a side effect of what was really happening. My body was trying to protect me from things that occurred from the moment that I was created. With Jennifer’s guidance this amazing therapy has allowed me to overcome an obstacle that was holding me back from living the life I wanted. For the very first time in my life I feel truly free and alive. My mind is clear of noise and clutter and I can finally enjoy just being. I can now feel how my body reacts and can head off negativity. I used to be one of the most cynical people that ever walked the face of the Earth. It was my coping mechanism. I no longer need to cope because the problems are gone. The past has been cleared away and the future lies ahead. The life I want to create.

I already sleep better!

The experience was amazing! I’ve been challenged with day-to-day life. Jennifer helps bring you back into your body. She helped me realize the importance of being grounded and in control. I already sleep better! Thanks so much!
