Testimonials

 

Hypnotherapy is not just about ending a smoking habit, or managing an addiction. It's about support on many levels and helping clients to a new and comfortable place. It's about providing services in a caring and professional manner. We hope these client testimonials will reassure you that this is very much a part of what you will receive when we work with you.

 

One client recently stopped smoking at the age of 84. His comment was, "After 62 years of smoking I have finally stopped. I'd tried everything from acupuncture to the patch. I even tried another hypnotist. I wish you'd been around forty years ago!"

 

Below are some other examples of recent testimonials.

Hi Rob, just a quick text to let you know I am back with my family in England.
I am still cocaine free. I feel I have my life back after 11 years. Thank you.

Hello Rob,

l want to thank you. After 37 years of smoking, now l don't. l just don't. That simple. The power of this 'therapy' is stunning. how amazing to not be at the mercy of smoking or my mind. Thanks very very much. Money well spent.

I have been plagued with cluster migraine headaches for over 40 years. During this time period I have pursued several avenues in an attempt to rid myself of these debilitating episodes. Homeopathy, Naturopathy, allergy treatments, wisdom teeth out, complete diet changes all to no avail. These head aches have had no correlation to atmosphere, seasons, hormones, or environment. They are beyond nasty. Then this fall my parents watched a documentary on TV regarding migraine headaches and
hypnotherapy. I found Rob at Vancouver hypnotherapy and after just one treatment my head aches disappeared, that very day!!!! I was amazed, relieved and very thankful.
Thank you Rob!

Rob,

I literally haven't been obsessive complusive since I've been back, although every now and then I do something a bit compulsive, but I dont consider myself to be OCD any more. Going from a daily thing to a once or twice a month thing is such a difference. I definitly want to thank you as it started to get better after my sessions with you! Thank you! :)

Thanks Rob,

PW


Testimonial from MB:

Rob helped me regain my confidence though an abusive and difficult
divorce. I have always been a highly competent, positive,  balanced and
fun loving person.  With this I have enjoyed a fascinating and
challenging professional career.  My world and family as I knew it fell
apart. A year of verbal abuse, undermining of family relationships,
faced with cleaning up a corporate bankruptcy on my own, an extramarital
affair by my spouse with my friend, facing a million dollars of debt on
my own - you see he ran away from his life.  Nothing in life prepared me
for this.  Nothing prepared me for the anxiety and self doubt this
situation left me in.

I knew I had two choices, I could choose to deal with it responsibly and
with all my abilities, or I could choose to become bitter and remain
damaged for the rest of my life. I knew I would need help. Through this
I had to get up and go to work every day to handle the debt.  I had to
be able to cope with the anxiety and self doubt - the negative talk in
my brain.

I was already in professional counseling for about six months but I felt
I was not making progress. I felt that I should over sixl months feel
some form of emotional and psychological healing - even just a bit. I
felt like I was at a standstill. This is when I contacted Rob. Rob gave
me relevant and challenging books to read. He challenged me with setting
weekly and monthly personal healing exercises and goals. He and my
doctor encouraged exercise and healthy eating. The exercise was so
strategic to the healing. I stayed in professional counseling and used
Rob and the counselor as my healing support team leaders.

The anxiety levels greatly reduced over three months. The negative talk
in my brain and self doubt stopped. My mind calmed. I was able to work
through the legal and financial mess that I was left to face on my own.
In the midst of this I had to have open heart surgery for two damaged
valves. Gosh I wonder why -  unbelievable what stress does?  I had
already healed so much. The heart surgery became a simple physical
healing exercise thanks to Rob.

I am again, that fun loving, cheeky, generous, self confident woman and
competent professional that has an unprecedented passion for life and
giving. Thank you Rob, I will never forget what you have done for me.

Hi Rob,

I'm writing to thank you for helping me kick my marijuana habit. I'm also writing to tell anyone who is thinking of contacting you, to go ahead and do it.

I was really needing help when I emailed you. I was tired of my 15+ years addiction to marijuana and my alcohol intake was on a steady rise too.


Apparently I go under hypnosis easily, which I am very surprised about. I felt very happy and confident when I left your office. And when I got home after my second treatment  I gave away my stash,  I just don't want it!
I've tried to quit multiple times and can't make it past a week or few days. Its been over three weeks (which is a life time for me). I've smelled others smoking it and I still don't want it. And after one or two drinks, I can't drink anymore, its bizarre.


You will experience some detox if you have used for years, but its nothing to worry about. Seriously, if I can quit after many years of use, anyone can.

Thanks again Rob,

SW

"My OCD is so minimal now its amazing...every now and then I get tempted to have something a particular way, but most of the time I can ignore it, which I couldn't do when I was being really OCD 6 months ago...so THANK YOU!!

"Hi Rob,

I’d like to share with you the realization I had about a week
ago. XXX and I went to Houston for my sisters wedding and had an
unbelievable time. It was really a beautiful ceremony and a great party
with friends and family. The day after the wedding we all went to my
sister’s for a family barbeque. There was so much left over wedding cake
and my sister put it upon the family to make sure that it was finished by
the time we left. I sort of laughed with XXX, and thought about the time
in my life when I thought that I could never eat cake yet alone enjoy it.
I then realized that it had been exactly one year since I had engaged in
any sort of bulimic activity… 365 days!! … I remember when I would come to
your office and have to come back the next day to for the reassurance and
support to not be bulimic for just 1 day! XXX and I had a moment of
celebration about how far we had come together. I thought it would be
strange to celebrate this without mentioning it to you, as you are THE
reason that I am where I am today. You have given me a new perspective on
everything. It terrifies me to think of where I would be in my life had we
not had the opportunity to see you and get advice from you.

"I appreciate so much, everything that you did for us. I'm sorry that I haven't contacted you in so long. I don't know if you remember that I was pregnant the last time that I saw you after many unsuccessful attempts. During this pregnancy I listened to the CD's you gave me diligently for the first 2 and a half months and I know they made a tremendous difference and helped me relax. 

6 days ago, Easter Sunday was the greatest blessing for us.  XX and I had a healthy baby boy. I know the sessions with you made a tremendous difference.

As for the bulimia...a thing of the past. Doesn't even cross my mind at this point. It was something I so desperately wanted to stop and now I have.

Thank you for everything you have done, we couldn't be more grateful.

Sincerely,
XX"

Thank you Rob!  I hope you had a wonderful Holiday.  The reason I was able to have a baby, was due to you helping me quit smoking:)  I can never thank you enough
Enjoy your New Years, all the best to you and yours

Rob-

I just wanted to send you a BIG Thank You for changing my life.

Before I came to see you I was miserable. Eating and eating and not understanding why and not understanding why I didn't have the control to stop. After our first initial visit my life changed. I didn't just notice small changes....my life changed in just under an hour. It was amazing! I didn't have the overwhelming urges to eat anymore and I felt so relieved and empowered. It is still unbelievable to me, after all the time and money I have spent on diet after diet, that all it really took was a few sessions with you and I'm a changed woman. I know I will still have challenges, but facing those challenges now isn't as scary as it was 3 weeks ago.

Thank you again for saving me. I will see you in a few weeks.

Im still working out and feel like a new person. The sessions worked really well. Thankyou so much, my experience made  a profound difference.

I never thought that after 30 years of smoking anything would work to help me quit! After one session with Rob I was a non smoker and still am...I have happily referred him to many of my friends.

Hi Rob,

I've been telling people about you ever since last Thursday, when you first saw me.  I felt great the next day.  And a couple of days later I remember walking down the street with my head up.  It dawned on me what I was doing and I couldn't help but smile.  So I was walking down the street with my head held high and this dumb smerk on my face.  I haven't done that since I can remember.  You were a part of what made this happen and I'd like to thank you.

Hi Rob,

I wanted to thank you so much for our session on Wednesday. To be honest, I've thought about what triggered my eating disorder a million times and never linked the incidents that happened to me as a teenager to the bulimia. Maybe it's been easier to block them out.

Also, thank you so much for speaking to JH on my behalf. I spent a year in an eating disorder treatment program and not once did I ever feel as supported as I did seeing you. JH hears from me all the time about how his drinking upsets me but I know that hearing it from someone else will make a tremendous difference. Feeling that support made me feel so much more at peace. The connection between the bulimia and alcoholic events make so much sense to me now. I know it made sense to JH as well and I'm sure he understands as well now why I avoid events that will involve a lot of drinking and get so upset when he drinks too much.

Thank you Rob for helping me to enjoy life again.

Dear Mr Hadley,

I am writing this to thank you for your successful treatment of my long established smoking addiction (42 years). It has now been more than 6 months, and not only am I pleased with the results, but also in awe with my experience of the process and would like to share it with you.

 

In the days and weeks following my session, I experienced an unfamiliar calm in general and something else more specifically that I can only describe as 'DISINTEREST' in smoking. That is to say that I really didn't seem to care one way or another about the issue of smoking - even when I saw others doing it. This was a surprising phenomena to me after so many attempts at quitting in the past. I experienced none of the usual emotions or stress.

Truly a remarkable, painless and completely successful exercise. Thank you again.

Hi Rob,

I can't thank you enough for all your help. I'm one month free of cigarettes. I worried about the cost of hypnotherapy initially, but its already more than paid for itself and I haven't gained a single pound.

I feel great. I started dating again after 10 years. People are telling me I look different.

I also just started at a new job. With your help, I am cigarette free, and really feeling great!

As a committed 2 pack a day smoker for almost twenty years, I had little faith that anything short of a cancer diagnosis would get me to quit. I have watched friends and family quit, but many attempts and every method known, inhaler, gum, patch and even Zyban never got me more than 2-3 excruciating days. I smoked 2 cigs outside before going into see Rob. Honestly I had a feeling I would be smoking when I left his office. The session was comfortable and painless, and I left cautiously optimistic. I had some cravings in the first three days, but with the tools Rob showed me and I got through them easily.

 

Thanks Rob, its been over three months smoke free and I feel great, getting over this addiction has definitely made me feel better about myself.

I had been trying to get pregnant for awhile and had realized that the emotions and thoughts surrounding it were starting to consume me. I decide to try hypnotherapy to see if I could relax my thoughts, de-stress, and possibly even help my body become more fertile.

 

I found Rob to be very calming, warm, and professional – hypnotherapy with him was wonderful. After each session I would leave his office feeling happy, calm, and content. These feelings would stay with me for many days after the treatment.

 

After only two sessions I had gained the ability to calm my mind and relax knowing that everything would happen in its own time. Rob also gave me some great mind exercises to invigorate my body and spirit. I highly recommend Rob’s hypnotherapy - I found it to be a wonderful experience, with quick results and long-lasting effects.

Hello Rob

I do hope this email finds you well. I would like to let you know this whole experience has been so positive. It has been one week with no smoking. I wish I could relate how remarkable that is considering I have no will power whatsoever. For the first three or four days, which I have been told are the most difficult to get through, were so easy. I was not stressed at all and did not overeat, these were two of my main concerns as you know. There have been maybe three times when I really felt any desire to smoke but were easily handled with a few deep breaths. And water tastes so good too! I feel better already, and look forward to my health improving as each day passes.

My family, friends and co-workers are amazed at my success. The best part is being free from the addiction of cigarettes. Very liberating! I really can't thank you enough for this life changing experience. You do good work.

Best Regards, Christine Kemp

Hi Mr. Hadley

Thank you so much for all your help. Since seeing you, I have a renewed sense of confidence and I am not letting my fears run my life.

 

I just got back from a vacation in Mexico, something I did not think I could ever do as it involved a plane, and having to eat in Mexico (I assumed I would get sick and then have to throw up). Flying was okay and the food in Mexico was great...I tried a number of new things.

Now that I am back I am looking for a new job...realizing that 14 years is a long time in one place.

Thank you, thank you thank you.
