"Dear Len, I wish to express my gratitude for your amazing Hypnotic help. For many years I had a fear of anaesthetic after 2 bad experiences. So when told urgent surgery was necessary due to recurring gallstone attacks I was full of dread and fear, which was so bad I twice rejected the surgery when my name came up. However a session with Len made all the difference. He suggested there was nothing to fear and I would actually be so relaxed I would chat with the theatre staff prior to receiving the anaesthetic ! This proved to be exactly what happened. During my recovery 2 other surgeries were necessary and I was a bit nervous wondering how I would behave. I need not have had any concerns. My fear has gone and I cant thank you enough. You are a real lifesaver. Bless you. sincerely*", Ruth Aylott 15.10.14
"Dear Len and staff, It has now been over a year since my appointment with you for a session to stop smoking (2nd August 2013) - I am very proud to say I have not had a cigarette since. I am a different person.. I cannot thank you enough.. I have been meaning to send this email for some time and I apologise for the tardiness but the reality hit the other day when my 17 year old son and I were cleaning out our kitchen drawers in preparation for a house move.
We came across 5 different cigarette lighters.. We lined them up on the bench and my son looked at me and said "Mum, why do we have so many lighters??'… It took us both a full minute to realise and remember I had been a smoker!! We laughed and then I cried and then we laughed so more. Such an amazing feeling to not only be able to give up smoking but literally forget you ever smoked! I had so many former smokers say - there isn't a day goes by when I don't want one.. I have never had that, not once. The mantra you gave me still is memorised today and comes out at times of need.
Something more happened that day. Something in our session flicked a switch on who I really am and the strength that I do have. I have always underestimated myself but you made me see that I can do and be what I want. I am about to commence retraining in a whole new area at 41years old - because I can! I have a calmness now that I had to force before now it just comes naturally - I thank you for that at a very personal level.
I know these are only words but Len - thank you for giving me my life back. And thank you for making my life now potentially very much longer by not smoking :) Thank you again and take care of your amazing talent. Kindest and warmest regards*" Trish, October 2014.
"I had a couple of moments today when I thought I was feeling anxious and I changed my thought pattern and told my self I don't suffer anxiety any more and I found myself smiling, so that was a very new feeling to me. And, I just know that every day I am going to do something new that I have not done for years. As I said I can't thank you enough Len. Thank you so much*" Annette Bell
"Hi Len, Just thought you may like to know that today and right now it has been 8 weeks since I visited you. After our session I have not touched a cigarette since. Previously I had tried to quit more times than I could remember but now with your help and tools I feel I have got it licked and I feel great! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I will have no hesitation in recommending you. Kindest regards*", George. February 2014
"I can’t sing the praises of Len’s hypnotherapy enough. I went in a little sceptical , But Len made me feel more than comfortable. The fact that he takes the time to get to know about you and your past so that he can best serve your needs is great. I walked out without even the thought of a smoke. No Cravings, No Crankiness…… To me it’s a miracle. If you walk in with a positive attitude and really take on board what he says, I believe you will stop smoking*". Amanda Hayhoe. February 2014.
"Just to let you know that yesterday was four months since I quit smoking. My last smoke was on 26 October 2012 immediately before my session with Len. I haven’t smoked since. I smoked for 44 years. I won’t ever again. Most of the problem was habit with addiction a secondary (but hard) issue*". Many thanks, Brian Fitzgerald, February 2013.
"Just some feedback for Len, It has been amazing. No smoking, no cravings, no moods, no nothing! I have referred your business to many of my friends and family.*" Kind regards, Romaine Goodwin, March 2012.
"I thank you and your program Len, it has truly changed my life and I will forever be a non-smoker. On Tuesday next week it will be 10 Months since I started my clean living and not one lapse. Thank you, Thank you*" Phil Meagher
"Thanks Len, So far so good, no urges to have a cigarette. I've had some shocking days, and still not had an uncontrollable desire. I am impressed!*" Regards, Paul Garver
"Hi Len, I really don't know where to start to thank you, to have gone 4 weeks without so much as a puff or even the desire to have a cigarette is amazing. And now after leaving your place yesterday i went straight down to woollies with my sister and I walked in and got the few things I needed, it was the most unbelievable feeling quite powerful. Before my session with you I have not been able to go in to that store for 3 years. So Len, you have given me my life back and I can never thank you enough. There is more.. I drove to my daughters house yesterday about 3 hours after seeing you, and I drove over the big bridge - WOW - what an experience. I cried I felt so proud of myself. I have not driven over there for probably 4 years. And I did it again today*!!
"Hi Len, Many thanks - I have to say I feel FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fifth day today and not a craving in sight.*" Cheers, Donna :)
"Len how are you? Mate, things are great smoke free and lovin it, true to our goals I now have a new bike. The goal was to quit for at least 6 to 12 months and I'd get my bike.*" Thanks Phil
"Hi Len, I just wanted to let you know that since I saw you on the 17th of Feb I have not touched a cigarette and I am so very grateful. I hope this finds you well.*" Kind Regards, Chris
"Hi Len, I am just emailing you to thank you, I have found hypnosis to be very successful. I am also interested in recieving hypnotherapy for a binge eating, which has been an emotional problem of mine for a long time. I think hypnotherapy would be good for me to cut the emotional connection and hopefully resolve this problem forever.*" Thank you, Rebecca
"Thanks Len. I am still smoke free and loving it! Dash is now also off the cigarettes and has been for about a month now. It is so much better not having any smokers in the house.*" Regards Jane
"Hi Len, Still going strong since our appointment in June. No urges! Thank you. When I tell people about you they ask me if you do Hypnosis for weight which I'm sure would work just as well?*" Regards Jeanette
