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.

Hi Phil,

I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for truly liberating me from the hell I have been living in all my life. I can't begin to tell you how amazed I am at the difference in me since undergoing hypnosis. I am no longer food obsessed. I'm eating only when I'm hungry but even more importantly I am stopping when I am satisfied!

I am actually learning to hear what my stomach has been telling me all along! I can feel the difference between appetite and hunger. I am eating breakfast and enjoying the taste of everything I am eating, savouring each mouthful and chewing my food properly. I leave food on my plate now which I NEVER did before. My husband noticed immediately that there was a difference to my usual eating habits of woofing down my dinner because on the first night I actually (without even thinking about it) put my knife and fork down between mouthfuls. I was the last one finished at the table and that is an absolute first!!! I hadn't told him I was going to see you so he was quite worried and thought there was something wrong with me.

I feel so positive about this and I have to tell you I was completely sceptical that it would work but the change in me is remarkable and has transformed my life and will transform my health and my body. That's a fact!
I am listening to the CD every day and often fall asleep listening to it. Whenever I feel stressed or upset instead of using food to quash my feelings an image pops into my head of the thread and the scissors in my hand cutting the thread and the urge to eat goes away completely.

It is absolutely miraculous and I am completely astounded at my complete and utter faith that this is the answer to my weight issues and the key to unlocking the emotional cage that I have been locked up in. I already feel like a different person, more confident and self possessed.

I am telling all and sundry how amazing this experience is and I know you will be getting some phone calls.

I will also be back to see you to work on public speaking, nail biting and my phobia of cockroaches. My husband also wants to do this to gain confidence so I have given him your website too. He'll be in touch as soon as possible.

Thank you Thank you Thank you

Warmest regards

Dear Phil,

I believe people these days are all too quick to make a complaint and not enough to praise the people who deserve it.

I came to see you early March 2009 as I was struggling to stop smoking. I have to admit I came to you a little sceptical however ready to give anything a go. By the time I left your practice I had no doubt in my mind I would never pick up another cigarette again.

I just simply want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart, you have no idea what you have done for my life, my husband has also been successful and with the money we have saved we have been able to buy a second house which will forever keep our family financially sound. I have still had no desire to have a cigarette. You have shown me how powerful my mind can actually be.

It really hit me this new years eve as everyone was making their new years resolutions this was the first time for many many years mine hasn't been to quit smoking. I have never felt so fantastic in all my life.

Again I just want to thank you, you very well could of saved my life and I am referring everyone I know to you.

I wish you and your practice a wonderful new year for 2010.
