"After many years of trying to fix myself, and a few attempts at "talk therapy", I began to work with Jane Ehrman. Through her help, using guided imagery, I was able to break through defense mechanisms that I had failed to even acknowledge before. This method helped me to recognize and work through many painful issues without any pain, and only a very manageable amount of fear. With Jane's ability to teach me to use guided imagery, I have become whole. This is something that I had come to believe was not a possibility for me. I truly believe that my work with Jane saved my life, although I can't say that this experience was enjoyable, I can say that it was satisfying."
"When I was robbed at gunpoint and suffering from posttraumatic stress syndrome I felt broken, I trusted no one, and could not get this terrible incident to leave my mind. After seeking the services of Jane Ehrman I was able to transform my negative feelings into hope, and my distressing experience was soon forgotten. With her support I have become a much stronger, capable, and confident woman. Thank you Jane!"
"I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your help [Hypnosis/ Guided Imagery]. I fell asleep for the first time ever, on an airplane. On the return trip I started to get nervous because the weather deteriorated, I played your CD and was able to enjoy the rest of my trip. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
"The work I've done with Jane has been transformative in healing old wounds and empowering me to make healthy life choices. Through her calm, steady, loving presence Jane provides a safe space and the skilled guidance necessary for deep inner work. I highly recommend her."
"I have known Jane Ehrman for over 20 years and have been impressed by her growth and increased maturity both personally and professionally. She is well trained in her chosen field of Clinical Hypnotherapy and Interactive Guided Imagery. More importantly, she has had first hand experience and knowledge from having been a patient with a life threatening disease. She is one who has used the art of Imagery and Hypnotherapy to cultivate healing in her own life. She truly knows the inner struggle of the healing process and what it means to 'heal thyself'. You will find Jane, as I often have found her, to be deeply intuitive, compassionate, and a loving person. These are the human qualities that open others to the healing potentialities of their own lives."

Guided Meditation Audio CDs
Chemotherapy and Reducing Side-Effects
"I used this CD faithfully every day during chemo, and probably not coincidentally, I had an easier time than I expected, and a much easier time than most other people I know who went through the same regimen. I highly recommend this CD to anyone undergoing chemotherapy."
Carol S., Detroit, MI
"Your CD has been a godsend for my friend who is undergoing chemotherapy. Thank you for your good work..........Blessings"

Knee Replacement Surgery
"I had knee surgery using your CD. I found it especially helpful when going through the pain of rehab. I found I responded extremely well to your recordings."
"I listen to your Minute Meditations CD most days at work as part of my lunchtime break. It re-energizes me for the afternoon's work. I also use it at night when I need help falling asleep. I especially like the variety of meditations, some short and helpful and others more involved to help me relax deeper when I have more time."

Preparing for Surgery
Just wanted to say thank you again; now three years post - cancer and I’m doing well. I’m very grateful to you for your pre-operative hypnosis work for me. The good result I got following my surgery and treatment underscores the benefit and value of the suggestions and guidance. Keep up your good work, Jane.
I enjoyed your Preparing for Surgery CD tremendously! I went into surgery with a very positive attitude, which I conveyed to all the staff. They felt the positive energy too. I feel the healing light and am healing quickly. My gratitude to you!
L.K. Cleveland, OH
"I downloaded your Preparing for Surgery cd and proceeded to listen to it almost every day. Although I had been somewhat skeptical about the whole relaxation and visualization process, I found myself in the days leading up to the surgery feeling very calm and relaxed. The day of the surgery found me a bit more nervous, but still feeling much more calm than I thought I would be. Several of the medical staff commented on my joking manner and appearance of calm and I told them about listening to your guided imagery cd and how I felt I had benefited from it. Thank you again for your answering my questions honestly and for helping me with the guided imagery. I truly believe my surgical experience went as well as it did because of the prep work, I did with your cd. From skeptic to convert!"
BG., Cleveland, OH
"I was terrified of the surgery and the guided imagery program really helped me to focus and relax. It’s been a week since the (hip) surgery and I would never have believed the difference it has made. I have surgical pain, which is nothing compared to the pain I endured every time I stood up and walked, prior to surgery. So, for me, this has been great. Once again, thanks so much!"
DG, Cleveland, OH
"Jane, my boys LOVE your "Sweet Dreams" CD. They play it every night as part of their bedtime ritual. It helps them settle down and fall off to sleep peacefully. Fewer nightmares too! Your voice is so soothing. As soon as they hear your voice and the music they're ready to sleep. Thanks for making bedtime a happy time in our family."
Susan V. Richmond, VA
"I love spreading your beautiful comfort to other families in the form of your "Sweet Dreams." My 11-year-old son and my 8-year-old daughter still ask for "Miss Janie" regularly as part of our bedtime routine. I wish every child could have such nurturing warmth every night."
Dottie, Cleveland, OH
"Jane: Even when you don't know it, your calm, soothing voice is still at work putting my children to sleep. Miss Lydia was wired high because of kindergarten, etc. Your CD was the breakthrough strategy tonight! She now looks like the angel that God intended her to be! Thanks!"
Jennifer O, N. Canton, OH
"My son had a difficult time staying in his own bed at night, and was always afraid monsters were going to get him. Listening to Sweet Dreams, he has learned how to use his imagination to calm himself instead of scaring himself. And we have our bed to ourselves again. Thank you, Jane!"
A. Brunswick, OH
"Thank you so much for "Sweet Dreams". I was up in my daughter's room listening to the relaxation exercise and enjoying the imagery of the tree so much; I fell asleep!"

"Thank you very much for presenting the Nursing Grand Rounds on Integrative Medicine at Marymount Hospital. Your presentation was very well received by our staff. I received numerous requests (both verbally and written on the evaluations) to ask you to come again."
DS., Marymount Hosp. Cleveland, OH
"Personally, I feel so fortunate that I was able to introduce you, which allowed me to sit and fully enjoy your presentation. It started my Health Expo morning off on the right foot! I must admit, of all of the feedback I heard that morning on various sessions, all of the ladies that attended "Stress Management" had fabulous things to say about you and your presentation. I know the time went quickly, but the amount of tangible information, in addition to the opportunity to fully experience relaxation through your guided imagery, was just the ticket!"

Other Speaking Testimonials
"Jane was well received by the Cleveland division of the Opticians Association of Ohio. They have asked to have her back, as she did a very good job of presenting information on stress management and also relaxing the attendees. She kept the attendees attention and they thought she was very entertaining too. I would highly recommend Jane to speak to any group."
Jim Rump President
Opticians Association of Ohio
"I love listening to Janie Ehrman speak! Each time I hear her, I walk away with both more knowledge and more joy! Janie manages to take material that, left in the hands of other, less skilled speakers, might be dry, boring or uninspired. Not Janie. By sharing authentically of herself and her own struggles, I leave knowing how to care for my body and my spirit, and inspiration to do so well."
