The whole session appeared to be a waste of time.... nothing appeared to be working properly. I didn't lose consciousness. I didn't go into a trance, or at least I didn't think I did, and yet after that session, not only did I stop smoking but I actually enjoyed the process.

Dear Phil,

I am not in the habit of writing thank you letters but just wanted to let you know the amazing results I have had since seeing you.

If you remember, I am the Paramedic who has smoked for 20 years and has tried to give up over 100 times. I have not smoked at all, despite having gone through all the normal triggers that always get me started again. I have drank at several parties where friends are smoking, have worked 14 hour night shifts with a partner for the past month who is constantly smoking and attended one of the most stressful jobs I have ever had to deal with as a Paramedic.

Amazingly, this has not been difficult. I have not had to try and use willpower which gets very tiring when I constantly fail. It is like you have turned off a switch in my head. I don't want to smoke, I don't miss it and if I do think about smoking it is only a happy feeling that I don't smoke.This is the first time in 20 years I feel like a none smoker and it is such a relief. I am saving a lot of money and am actually enjoying exercising now I can breath better.

I just wanted to thank you for your help Phil, I am not sure how it works, but I am just glad it worked for me. I would certainly recommend you to other smokers I know who want to stop.

Kind Regards

Honestly before arriving I was sceptical and nervous but within a few minutes of being there I felt relaxed and confident. The session was fantastic. I felt that Phil was excellent at how he controlled the session and reassured me throughout. I now sit with my friends who smoke and the thought never crosses my mind.
