Donna is Magical! The first time I came into the office it was very relaxing. When Donna started explaining the process I realized it would be very helpful. Then when she started the actual BWRT, it was very helpful. At first I thought how it was possible to stop picking my nails and then as soon as I had the urge to pick/bite my nails I remembered to breathe in and breathe out the way Donna coached me and the urge was gone! I now enjoy looking at my hands and washing them without pain. I loved remembering just how successful I will have been!!

Hi Donna. Things are going amazing. I am so thrilled. I feel so free and so happy to not have the compulsion anymore. My preferred response feels so calming and peaceful! Thank you!

Such a positive experience. Donna was so calm and took the time to patiently explain the process of BWRT and I felt at ease following her guidance. Fears practically gone.

As a college student who's struggled with tremendous anxiety for most of my life, I must say that in the 2 sessions of BWRT, Donna has given me more coping tools than years of most Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and medications. She is incredibly caring, motivating, and passionate - immediately, I could feel her sense of enthusiasm and optimism! Most importantly, she quickly managed to change my attitude about myself and gave me hope to improve the way I approach my internal stresses. Donna is fantastic, and I would not hesitate to recommend her services!

Hi Donna!!!! I just wanted to let you know I just got to the hotel with my friends and took my first flight since our two sessions. I must tell you, you are a miracle worker. I was a little nervous before the flight because I wasn’t sure if the BWRT would help, but from the start of takeoff to the end of landing, I was totally ok!! My legs were not shaking, I felt comfortable and at peace, and I was even able to close my eyes (not fall asleep, but just have them closed). It was a little choppy throughout the entire flight and I didn’t have any thought of death or anything. For the really big bumps, I got a little nervous, but as it happened, it felt as if it was a jump scare from a scary movie and not something that would lead to me dying. After any bump, turn, or announcement, I either shrugged as if I didn’t care or I laughed (more in particular the bumps). On the way up during take off, my eyes started to tear because I couldn’t believe I wasn’t shaking or grabbing anyone’s arm or shirt. I honestly felt cured and I can’t thank you enough. This is easily the highlight of my year so far and I’m so appreciative of all the help you have given me!!!!

Hello Donna! Just wanted you to know I have not bitten my nails since our first BWRT session. I just had to tell you how pleased I am with the results. Thank you again for putting this 49 year-old habit behind me, I could not have done it on my own as I tried in the past. I even gave your name and number to a few people. I hope they go fourth with using the technique. You are an absolute joy. Have a wonderful day. Thank you!

A Message 5 Months Later from Andrew: Hi Donna, I still have not bitten my nails! Plus I got that manicure with my daughter. I actually enjoyed the process. I can't thank you enough. I really appreciate how you helped me.

I had a great experience with Donna at Wise Mind BWRT of New York! I was in search of answers for an issue with the throwing yips as a baseball player. We took a different approach by using BWRT for relief and confidence. I now feel more confident and ready to tackle any challenge that comes my way. Donna Bloom was the best and I would recommend her to anyone.

I just wanted everyone to know what success I had with my visit with Donna over a year and a half ago.
I went to see Donna in desperation. I had been a nail biter for over 40 years. I had a consultation with Donna and then made my appointment. First I would like to say she is just the sweetest, kindest person. We had two visit. I believe the first was 90 minutes and second, I believe was 60 minutes.
Well after the second visit I had absolutely no desire to bite my fingernails anymore. It has been well over a year and a 1/2 and I have not bit my nails. She was extremely successful. I could not be any more happy. I always told everybody that I would never be able to stop, well I was 100% wrong. After year and a 1/2 of not biting my nails anymore I know at this point I never will again. Think you so much Donna, I appreciate this so much..

This was a first for me in working with BWRT and I couldn't be more grateful for my experience at Wise Mind. Not only is Donna extremely knowledgeable and undoubtedly qualified, she was able to be so in-tuned to what I needed and really honed in on troubled areas. Really love Donna and forever grateful for the immediate change I found in myself.
Donna helped me get to my goals. She was patient, kind, extremely knowledgeable with her application and explanation of BWRT. I would happily recommend her to anyone.

Working with Donna was a joy! She has helped me to conquer my fear of flying and to find a way to instead feel a sense of calm and peace. She is lovely to work with.
