Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. I have been helping people quit smoking for 23 years. I have helped hundreds of smokers make the transition in one session because that is all that is needed. The secret is to pick the fruit when it is ripe. If the smoker is ready, then the process is easy, relaxed and effective.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Quitting smoking using hypnosis is one of the most, if not the most, effective methods available. It gets at the root of the problem without drugs, without replacing the habit with other undesirable habits, without weight gain and without suffering. It is safe, enjoyable and you are awake, aware and in control of the situation at all times.
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. How much experience do you have? Over 20 years of working with smokers.
What is your success rate? Over 90% will quit in one session.
Do you guarantee your service? Yes.
Is this service personalized for my particular situation? Absolutely. This method is designed to take into account your particular situation with smoking. No two smokers are alike.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. The method that we use is specific to smokers. Hypnosis is the most effective method in general for smoking cessation and our particular focus on smokers makes it that much more successful. We use the latest discoveries from cognitive science to keep improving our method. People leave feeling that they have finally overcome this habit that has been eating at them for a long, long time.
Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A. There is nothing mysterious about hypnosis. People are conscious and in control the whole time. Hypnosis is just deep relaxation with focus. It is similar to being immersed in a good book or movie, or driving. In this state of relaxation the unconscious mind is open to suggestion. Since we are suggesting quitting smoking, the person who wants to quit is helping their unconscious mind get the message. That simple.
Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. For 15 years I had been helping smokers quit smoking using acupuncture, and it was fairly effective. When I discovered this method of working with smokers, it was so satisfying to see results so fast and so powerful, I decided to devote two full days each week to just doing this. Perhaps only cataract surgery is this dramatic.
