Hypnosis Success Stories

 

Quit Smoking / Tobacco

"I had unsuccessfully been trying to quit smoking for years before trying hypnosis with Jeff. Combining practical self-management tools to fight cravings along with hypnosis sessions finally gave me the strength to quit. And it was so much easier that I thought!" – Michael Atkinson


"
After repeated attempts to quit smoking, I had resigned myself to the fact that quitting was impossible, at least for me. I had tried quit so many times I had become an “expert” at it. I was motivated to quit, but lacked the tools to do so. This is where hypnosis came in… Jeff gave me those tools, showed me how to use them, and a support system to make it happen. My biggest question was “how does hypnosis work” as I had no experience with it, and wasn’t even sure if it would work, but figured I had nothing to lose, and everything to gain. You must be committed to the idea of being smoke free. That’s all it took to make it work.  

I can breathe now, which allows me to exercise, which keeps my weight at a healthy level, which lowers my blood pressure and so on. Being smoke free is the first step to breaking the addiction chain, and achieving other health goals. And deciding to look into hypnotherapy was the first step to getting started. I can honestly say that Jeff Carver was committed to my success. Checking in with me, and helping me until I was smoke free." – Dennis Arnold, Jr


“I would highly recommend Jeff Carver to anyone who is ready and willing to quit tobacco. I met with Jeff to help me quit chewing tobacco. I chewed/dipped for over 25 years… since I was a teenager. I always desired to quit – but had been unsuccessful in all my previous attempts. Every time I previously tried to quit or wanted to quit, I felt uneasy and had a lot of anxiety about the discomfort and cravings that come during the quitting process. I was initially very skeptical about how helpful hypnosis and hypnotherapy would be for me.

I’ll tell you, Jeff was very patient with all of my questions and concerns. He was very open and honest in his answers, and he took considerable time to address my concerns and ensured I understood the process and what to expect even before we even started.

The cravings I experienced in the first week of quitting were significantly lower in frequency and intensity than those that I experienced in all my previous attempts at quitting.

Jeff gave me some really good tools that really helped to decrease the intensity of the cravings as they were occurring. He followed up with me frequently during the first week to ensure that I was doing well. He not only provided the tools to help me in the initial phases of quitting, but he also spent time to ensure that I understood what to expect in the long term and that I was ready for it.

I am certain that I’m now tobacco free, and that I will be from here on forward for the rest of my life! I can’t stress enough that this is a very HUGE statement for me… one that I previously was not sure I would ever be able to say and honestly mean. Bottom line – I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone who is looking for help in quitting tobacco – smoking or chewing. You will definitely not be disappointed!” – Frank Rager


"I've been smoking for over 30 years and have just flat out never been able to quit. I can't tell you how good it feels to have my life back under my control." - Steve Gallatin


"This was the best investment I have ever made! I feel so proud of myself for taking this step. It is so awesome that I have started my new life as a ‘Clean Air Breather!’ "
- Kimberly Miller

- Andrea Martinez


"
I can’t believe it. As of yesterday it has been 8 weeks since I quit smoking. 8 weeks – WOW!!!
I
wanted to let you know. I am still listening to the CDs to reinforce and keep my stress level down but I am feeling so good!Thank you. I have just started to train for a charity run in the fall – can you believe it?

Thanks so much for helping me find a new healthy life. I just can’t believe how amazing God is to provide the tools we need to accomplish anything. You are definitely one of them!" - Janet Gillis-Chavez


"I was a smoker for 36+ years and successfully quit with little or no bad sensations. It’s truly amazing and it really works."
- Vince Benfield


"I am 28 years old, own my own business, and have smoked for over 10 years. I learned about Jeff Carver from a friend who quit smoking by seeing him. I tried several other ways of quitting and found hypnosis to be easier than I ever imagined. I am starting a new life and family now smoke free. Again, I thought it would be one of the most difficult tasks in my life, but it was easier than I thought." 
- David Swain

"I used to smoke about a pack and a half a day - after only three weeks of hypnosis, I have not had a cigarette and I have no desire to smoke - even around other smokers. I'm happy and very impressed! Thank you." - Peter Pierce


"Before I came here, I thought life without cigarettes was not possible. Jeff’s treatment and my choice to give up smoking have worked. I am now a ‘Clean Air Breather’ and have given up a 30 year, 2 pack a day smoking habit. THANK YOU SO MUCH - I could not have done it on my own." - Gwen Halversen

 

Weight Control

"
Remember in our first session, the focus was on weight loss... I used to drink three or four Coca-Colas a day. Since that day, I haven't had one soda. It's been almost a year and 37 pounds since then..." - Spencer V., MBA Student


"To date, I have lost 24 pounds and have been walking 5 miles every day! I go to sleep with the CDs, and sometimes listen to the CD while walking too." - Lenore Vlasic, VP of Marketing

“I can tell you that the first thing I asked Jeff to help me with was to relieve stress and kick the diet coke habit -- you see, the diet cokes make me want sweets. I can tell you that I have had 6 sessions and WOW -- what a difference!!! I have not had a diet coke and don't even want one since I had my first visit. Also, I am not having those tension headaches and I feel like getting up and running to work." - Liz Applewhite


“A while ago, I visited Jeff Carver for weight loss help. Through the use of Hypnosis, I was able to address issues that were from my childhood and teen years that have no bearing on me now, but have bothered me all my adult life. I have been able to succeed in a losing a considerable amount of weight. It is obvious that the therapy sessions with Jeff served as trigger points to get over my own stumbling blocks in weight loss.  I am grateful to Jeff  for the assistance I received from him. I recommend Jeff Carver for his professionalism and knowledge of Hypnosis therapy. He helped me get on a path to becoming a better and healthier person.” - Marcus C.

After being diagnosed with diabetes last year, I began eliminating sugar from my diet and trying to lose weight.
On the 25th of November, I weighed 245.
By the 22nd of March, I weighed 237.5. (A loss of 7.5 pounds in 4 Months)
I went to see a hypnotherapist, Jeff Carver, at the end of March
A month later I weighed 231 on the 26th of April. (A loss of 6.5 pounds in one month)
Hypnosis affects the subconscious mind and helps eliminate the faulty programming that is keeping people from achieving their conscious desires. Once the subconscious mind has the new program it runs with it.
On the 30th of May, I weighed 222 (a loss of 9 pounds in one month)
So before hypnosis - a loss of 7.5 pounds in 4 months
After hypnosis - a loss of 15.5 pounds in 2 months.
(Over twice the loss in half the time) – Jennifer G.



"After talking to Jeff about the weight loss program, he gave me a great idea to clear my mind and get focused… I picture a volume dial, and turn down the dial so my mind is clear of the noise. It has really worked!" - Judy E.


"Like most people, my husband and I had tried several diets and even pills to lose weight, but nothing seemed to work. After using hypnosis, we have lost and kept off a total of 73 pounds! Many people have asked Gerry and I how we lost the weight. We tell them it was through hypnosis, and although some are skeptical, they can’t argue with the results!" - Gerry & Sherry Sandoval


"
After my very first session, I was really relaxed and much calmer. I wasn’t sure I could do this but I feel like I’m on the right track. My desire for Cherry Cokes plummeted from an 8 to a 1-2!!" - Adele Rodriguez


"In the 6 weeks since I started this program, I have gone down 2 pant sizes. I have more energy & feel more confident about everything I do. I now have enough confidence to conquer more obstacles and venture into new things!" - Tricia McHenry


"I started the program 6 sessions ago. I was skeptical at first but after the first session, I was amazed that my attitude had changed. I started walking every day and enjoying it." - Dwayne O.


"I lost 20 pounds and lowered my cholesterol with a high protein diet. I don’t crave between-meal snacks. I am eating healthier foods.  I exercise 4 times a week at a gym. My blood sugar is under control and better than it has been in 15 years. I have a positive attitude and a brighter outlook on life." - Roger Lloyd

"When I came in for my first visit, I was 429 pounds and feeling hopeless. Every "diet" I had ever tried had failed and I was starting to think that I was someone who was going to die young without ever really having a chance to live. I knew I had to make a change if I was going to be around long enough to accomplish my goals and dreams. I read about Hypnotherapy and though I was uncertain if hypnosis would work for me, I thought it was worth a try. When I came in, I met with Jeff and he was very kind and listened to my concerns as he explained the process. For anyone who has not experienced hypnosis before, it is not at all like what you see on TV and in the movies, it is a very relaxing and comforting experience, and you are in control the whole time. After my first visit I was more confident about my eating choices and ability to lose weight. Each visit after that only helped to renew my confidence as I fought this battle. As anyone who struggles with weight is aware, confidence is key, and hypnosis has been a powerful tool in this struggle. As of today, I am down to 341 pounds, and I am feeling confident about tackling the remaining weight. Hypnosis is an extremely valuable tool to anyone who is willing to put in the hard work and effort to change their lives. I know, because it has helped change mine, and I am now looking forward to the long and healthy road ahead of me." - Alex E.

"Thanks to hypnosis, I eat vegetables galore, more lean protein and drink more water. Through hypnosis, I find that I can make food choices much easier now. Hypnosis through Jeff has put me back in control of my life. My subconscious mind is in control through hypnosis and I know that I am in control of food, food isn’t in control of me!” - Marta R.

 

Stress and Anxiety

“Stress had become an issue in my life mostly due to my ‘perfectionism’ way of thinking. After a few sessions with Jeff, I can now say that my stress level has come way down as my attitude toward perfectionism has diminished. My wife and I now really communicate." - Scott T.


“My goal was to be confident in myself, so I can eliminate my panic attacks. I needed to control how I act with the stress in my life.  Now, I am almost panic and stress free all together. This has brought me to a level I didn’t think I could achieve.” - Richard H.


The stress of caring for my parents (one has Alzheimer’s and one has had a heart attack and a stroke) and for my family while at the same time managing my job and the house and everything else had me really at the end of my rope. There were so many days that I thought that I couldn’t go on anymore. Many nights, I cried myself to sleep – if I could even get to sleep because I was always worrying about something. Then I was starting to get sick all of the time.

At one of my many doctor visits, my doctor told me that my health was going downhill because of all of the stress and anxiety in my life. She said that if I didn’t deal with the stress that I would be headed to an early grave myself and that I should see someone. As I was leaving, one of the nurses gave me a card for a Hypnotherapy Clinic in town. I asked her what good it would do to see them when it was stress that was my problem. She said that she and her sister had undergone hypnosis because of stress and fears and phobias. She said that it changed her life and that I should give it a try. That’s how I came to know Jeff Carver, my Hypnotist. He has practically saved my life! With the hypnosis, he has helped me to finally start to relax. Now I can sleep every night and I don’t worry about every little thing all the time. My health also is much better now and that helps me with everything else. If you have stress or you are anxious, you should go see Jeff right now! He is caring and compassionate – and if he could help me then I think he can help anyone!  - Lorrie Walker-Schmidt


 
Thank you so much! Hypnosis was great. I have really learned how to relax and how to handle stressful situations in my life.”  - Heather Blanchard


"Hypnosis has opened up a whole new world of stress release and feeling more confident with myself. Life is good and I’m better able to deal with whatever comes my way.  I really like it."  - Mark H.

“Jeff - I did not get a chance to say thank you after our last meeting. I used to be so stressed out whenever I was asked to speak at work or in front of anyone.  My stomach would bother me, my voice would be shaky, my heart would race, and I would just generally freak out.

About a month ago, I was informed when I arrived at our regional conference that I was going to have to participate in the main opening program since a colleague was going to arrive too late to do it.  When they first told me, I thought OK – it’s just a small thing – but I was wrong – it was a really important speech and then I had to lead a discussion afterwards!  At first I was surprised.  Then I surprised myself - I felt so relaxed and confident.  I could not believe it! I just said, ‘OK Eunice – You’ve got this.  Show ‘em what you’re made of!’ 

Today at work, I led the entire executive meeting and gave an all-staff speech without any problems or thoughts at all. Once I got up, I felt calm and I felt in control.

I realize now, that all of this has to be a result of my visits with Jeff.  I just wanted to let you know that you’re the best!  I’m really going to miss you!  Thank you!!!!!!” 
- Eunice Downing-Jackson



“I started seeing Jeff Carver a few months ago for Stress Management…. not only have I seen and felt a great transformation in myself in how I manage stress and how that has changed the way I relate to others as a business owner, wife, and mother of three beautiful children - I have also seen the transformations that he has achieved with several members of my family as well.  Jeff is one of the most genuine people I know and I can’t say enough about how much I appreciate the gifts he has given me and my family… Thank you Jeff!”  - N.P.


“I have to first preface this with the fact that: I am a huge skeptic.  I always go in with the idea of, ‘they’re going to have to PROVE this to me.’  And it took many years for me to even give this a chance!

He taught me, before ANY actual hypnosis session, a few methods for me to release some anxiety I was feeling about particular subjects.  These were things, that when I thought about them, would have a huge physical effect on me (knots in my stomach, lump in my throat, etc.)  I told Jeff that I was feeling stuck and that every time I would have some success, I couldn’t hang on to it.  I won’t go into all the detail, but literally after our first session I was able to TALK about my problems and face things (I was so stuck and anxious before, there was no way I would tell people, let alone talk about it without crying).  I won’t say that everything in my life is 100% perfect, but I now have tools to deal with anything that comes up in my life.  I think hypnotherapy can work if you do the work and go with the process.  There has been a huge shift in my mind and the way I think about things that I can only attribute to my sessions with Jeff.  I am forever grateful and would highly recommend him to anyone who asks!”  –Denise J.
