"Your help with my sugar addiction has been fantastic"

Hi Robert
I hope you are well and enjoying the long weekend.  Your help with my sugar addiction has been fantastic and I am only just feeling that I may need to listen to the session again. Unfortunately the download is no longer available. Do you still have a recording of the session and if so please can you forward it to me again?
With kind regards,


Fear of Flying

Dear Robert,
This is the kind of view I can deal with now. The flight was infinitely better.

"I haven't had a cigarette since!"

Hi Robert,

I hope you are well.
I wanted to say thanks for your help with my last appointment and I'm happy to say that I haven't had a cigarette since!
I really found the appointment helpful and I've been trying to get healthier since, working out and eating better. I've made some good progress, but I've kind of got stuck again. I am finding that alcohol is the main thing that gets in my way, making me feel tired and demotivated to work out.
I was hoping that I could book another appointment with you to help me with this?
Do you have any availability next Tuesday evening?
Many thanks

"I have not bitten my fingers since I saw you"
Dear Robert,
I started biting my knuckles when I was 4 years old. When I was 7 my violin teacher tried to encourage me to stop by telling me that my fingers would look bad on television when I was a famous violinist. By the time I was a teenager I was biting around the nails and also the skin on the ends of my fingers. In my twenties some of my work colleagues begged me to stop because it made them feel sick.
In my thirties my dentist pointed out the permanent ridges in my upper jaw caused by the continuous biting.
So finally, at the age of 47, I came to consult you four weeks ago. I am sure that even after our telephone conversation you were a little surprised at the state of my hands, with raw and bleeding areas as well as many areas of partially healed skin. A disgusting site.
You addressed my uneasiness and reticence about hypnosis very professionally, and the experience was exactly as you had explained it. Actually, very relaxing and rather enjoyable.
Since my visit I am back in control.. I have not bitten my fingers since I saw you. Rather than hide my hands beneath the table during meetings I can now relax. Only those who saw them before could understand what a transformation has taken place.
Many thanks for your help. You may use this letter in the promotion of your services as you see fit.
I appreciate that some people may require more than one visit to achieve their results but as the saying goes
'It worked for me'

"It worked a treat"
Hi Robert,

I came to see you years ago for hypnotherapy in Ealing and it worked a treat. Now my friends mum needs some help losing weight and I would love for her to come and see you.
Please let me know if you are still practicing.
Thank you,

"You helped me over come these problems for many years"

Hi Robert,

I hope you are well.
I came to you quite a number of years ago when I was suffering from a high level of anxiety and panic attacks. You helped me over come these problems for many years, however recently I've noticed I've been more anxious and suffering from quite a low self esteem again.
I would love to come and see you as soon as possible; I am free next Monday and Tuesday but understand if this is short notice. If not, it would be great if we could arrange it for another time. Feel free to contact me via email or by phone, the number is...

Kind regards,


St Albans & Harpenden Review - Hypnotherapy: could this be the answer for smokers this Stoptober?

By Amy Hopkins

“Miracle” is one of the first words out of ex-smoker Lorraine Geoghegan’s mouth, on the one-year anniversary of her session with Ealing hypnotist Robert Matthews"

THOUSANDS of smokers across the country are hoping to transform this October into Stoptober by rising to a Government-backed challenge to go without cigarettes for 28 days.
Quitting is big business. From nicotine patches and gums to e-cigarettes and prescription medicines, an entire industry has been built around the fact that smoking is one of the toughest habits to kick.
But there is one stop-smoking method that sounds too good to be true. With its promise of permanently curing nicotine addiction in one, quick and relaxing treatment - with no side effects – could hypnotherapy be the miracle that smokers have been waiting for?“
Miracle” is one of the first words out of ex-smoker Lorraine Geoghegan’s mouth, on the one-year anniversary of her session with Ealing hypnotist Robert Matthews.
If anyone was an unlikely candidate for hypnosis, it was 37-year-old Lorraine. Not only had she been smoking since she was 15, but this cynical patient did not even trust her therapist.
" I was quite scared of the idea of going down a back alley at dusk to be hypnotised by some guy,” she recalls.

Mr Matthews, who has practised hypnotherapy in Ealing and Harley Street for 14 years, led Lorraine through a series of visualisations during the one-hour  £150 session.

“Even as I was sitting there, I didn’t expect it to work,” she says.
"Every now and then, a child would appear and I thought, ‘oh right, this one represents purity’.
" I felt it was a really basic form of manipulation – and I thought ‘I’m not that silly’. So I thought, ‘sod you, I’m going to smoke as soon as I leave here, just to spite you’.”
Despite Lorraine’s determination to resist, when she left Mr Matthews her desire to smoke had vanished. “I just went home and walked straight past the shop,” she said.
This shop – the cigarette shop on her route home – had come to symbolise Lorraine’s internal battle with her addiction. “My feet used to carry me in while I was still telling myself don’t go in,” she recollects.
" Once I managed to walk past and was so happy that, to celebrate, I went back and bought a packet of cigarettes.”
Lorraine spent years in inner conflict over her habit. During attempts to quit, she became constantly aware of not smoking, envious of those who did and fearful of anything that might cause her to re-start.
A year later, it is hard to believe Lorraine was once so hopelessly controlled by her addiction.
" I’ll still go outside with smokers, but I have no desire to smoke,” she says. “I’m not repelled by it or anything. Smoking just doesn’t enter my thoughts. I don’t even know how to explain it.”

To shed light on this apparent miracle, I turn to smoking charity ASH.
To my disappointment, Amanda Sandford, ASH’s research manager, explains there is no evidence to suggest that hypnosis is ultimately any more effective than going cold turkey.
Apparently, even the most effective programmes rarely achieve a long-term success rate of more than 30%.

I tell Amanda about Lorraine.

“Well, a lot of people report that they’ve stopped through hypnosis and that’s fine – if they manage to stop then that’s great, whatever the method,” she says.
" The problem with hypnosis is that it’s highly likely they’ll relapse and then feel like a failure – they get dispirited about quitting, when actually most smokers take several attempts, anyway.”
Amanda’s warnings about relapse resonate in the experiences of other hypnosis patients I talk to who have not enjoyed the same success as Lorraine.
I t remains to be seen whether Lorraine will smoke again. Now, on her one-year smoke-free anniversary, she couldn’t be happier. “It feels like absolute freedom” she beams.

“Plus, if I start smoking again I’ll just go back for more hypnosis – it’s still cheaper than a lifetime of cigarettes.”

"My eczema has calmed down dramatically"
Hi Robert

Hope you have had a lovely weekend?

Just wanted to let you know that my eczema has calmed down dramatically since listening to your recording and im feeling really positive about my skin, I have been listening to it in the evenings throughout the week and really do feel and can also see the benefits of the hypnosis too, so wanted to thank you ever so much for your help! 🙂

So i forwarded the wetransfer link to my phone email so was just listening to the recording from my phone but for some reason it hasnt downloaded to my phone properly (may not have had enough memory space to save but was fine to listen to from the Wetransfer link) so now Im unable to listen to it as it says the link has expired, its my fault i should have downloaded to my laptop instead... so please can you resend me the recording again please and will get it saved this time?

many thanks again

"I had tears streaming down my face with the visualisations"

Good morning Robert.
Thank you for the audio I was amazed to hear it. When I heard it the first time I did not fall into deep relaxed state as I normally do but I had tears streaming down my face with the visualisations. It is such a brilliant audio. I'm going to listen to it regularly. Thank you for making it applicable to every aspect of my life. I appreciate it so much and I like the way you understood every aspect of what I have put down in my email and how you condensed it. Initially I was worried about how you would capture all of it but you did it beautifully. Have a great day.
Kind regards

hi robert
I got back into work today after returning from Cyprus and I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you so much for the fear of flying session. The flights to and from Cyprus were by far the most relaxing I have had in many, many years and ,dare I say it, even rather enjoyable.

"I am now 2 years smoke free and I no longer bite my nails"

Hi Robert,
Because of your sessions, I am now 2 years smoke free and I no longer bite my nails.
Another 1st world problem I have is on the golf course. I find my swing gets to fast and I want to hit the skin off the ball. I have been taking lessons with a very good teacher and all is well when i am having a lesson - get me back on the course and my tempo increases etc.
Can you help with my headspace and tempo as when this is settled - my score will tumble!
My swing mechanics is relatively stable - it would be good to drive these things into the sub conscious if possible.
Let me know if this is something that you can help with.



"I shot the best round of my career"

Hi Robert,
I thought I would give you an update.
I played golf this morning on a beautiful sunny morning. I shot the best round of my career. I played 14 over! Which is really excellent!

Dear Robert,
I attended several sessions with you several years ago on weight control and found them most helpful. I need to focus on that aspect again as well as managing eating for diabetic control. I would like to boo a session with you if possible.
I work at Westminster and am not back in Ealing until 6pm. A Friday evening would be good for me or a Saturday.

Really looking forward to receiving your recording.

Kindest regards,

"Your therapy worked very well"

Hi Robert,
Hope you are well
I came to see you about a year ago to help me give up coffee - your therapy worked very well!
My wife is now hoping you will be able to help her. She was hoping to be able to see you to help her with pain management.
We can come and see you in your Ealing office, but my wife isn't very mobile at the moment - would you be able to do something on Tuesday 8th April between 3 and 5pm? If not let me know and we can arrange something soon.
My number is xxxxxxxx

"Thank you so very much for the help that you gave myself to give up smoking - over 10 years ago now"

Good evening Robert

This is an email of 2 halfs, firstly I would like to say thank you so very much for the help that you gave myself to give up smoking - over 10 years ago now (where does time go), I will never forget - coming out of your premises thinking I didn’t bin my cigerettes, I could have one now, no I don’t need one. I have never looked back since then, thank you so very much.

My husband Brian came to you also for smoking (all be it some years after me), but success striked again and he also has not touched a cigarette in years now.

I would like to say thank you very much for your help in changing our lives..

I hope you continue to help people with their problems/issues for many years to come.

"you have cured me from smoking and more recently biting my nails "

Hi Robert,

RM here. If you remember, you have cured me from smoking and more recently biting my nails!

My wife has not been sleeping well recently - well, she has what is called her "window" and if she missed sleeping in this slot, then it is a bad night.

Work related stresses may have a part in this too. I am not the expert, all i know, is she has requested an early xmas present - an appointment with you!

Do you have weekend availability before Christmas? What is your availability in general?

i look forward to hearing from you shortly

"Underwent hypnotherapy for quitting smoking with 100% success"


Hi Robert,
I came to you in 2010 and underwent hypnotherapy for quitting smoking with 100% success.
I then came to you for weight loss hypnotherapy lat 2010 and early 2011, which initially worked each time, but unfortunately I soon reverted to my bad habits again.
I feel inherently that if the quitting smoking worked, it must be possible for the weight loss work too and would like to make an appointment with you to try again. Perhaps I could do with a few.
Ideally a Tuesday or Wednesday in Ealing around 2 or 3pm would be good. Do you have anything available at all?
.Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards

"Your hypnosis really worked a treat for my anxiety"

13 march 2013
Hi Robert,

I hope this finds you well. I have to say, it was a delight to meet you a
couple of months ago and your hypnosis really worked a treat for my anxiety
specific to my previous seizures, I really have never felt better in the
past few weeks. There is still some residual anxiety which has surfaced in
the last week, which is quite generalized. It's an anxiety about having a
panic attack or losing the plot, especially when I'm in close quarters with
people. I know we went over this in your session, but I'm still feeling
that specific anxiety. Can I come and see you again, or could you maybe
make me a recording if you're too busy to see me? I feel that your hypnosis
was really powerful and worked for me and would love to be able to tie up
these loose ends with your help.

Thanks Robert,

Hi Robert,

"You are seriously talented & Thank You" (back problem)

Hi Robert,

As for the track, well, I position myself as a professional psychic. You mentioned the precious stone from the eye of the statue, I nearly came out of the trance laughing :0) Another of my Pagan 'Witchy' friends told me to get a chunk of Kyanite & Citrine ( pictured ) & put them in the vision of a Buddha. So yes, amazing, take the stone from the eye of the statue !. Yesterday I was eased hysterically in to the car to see the surgeon. Today I walked a mile at least to a bar, played pool, went for a pizza, shopped Tescos & am back on it. You are seriously talented & Thank You, going to have another blast tonight. Every tweak shock etc freaked me previously but now is a positive healing indicator ... Thanks so much Again P

Hi Robert,
I came to see you a few years ago before I started a new school for some help with confidence and I remember it helping a lot. I need a bit of help at the moment related to confidence, but it's more of an obsession really, to do with my looks. I can explain in full in a session, so it would be great if I could book an appointment to see you please? I'm around any time at the moment.

"hoping you may can help my parter H give up smoking as you did for myself and some 15 of my friends some 10 years or more ago"

Dear Robert

Am hoping you may can help my parter H give up smoking as you did for my self and some 15 of my friends some 10 years or more ago. I was hoping you could fit us in on a Saturday morning as we live in Oxford and have children at school so week days are difficult for her to get to your office in Ealing.

Look forward to seeing you again and I will be asking you a little more about what I read on your site about help you can offer with asthma

Many thanks

"Many years ago - at least 8 or 9 I came to you for help to give up smoking. Which was very successful - thank you"

Hi Robert,
I have just been browsing through your website and have a few questions.
Many years ago - at least 8 or 9 I came to you for help to give up smoking. Which was very successful - thank you. I have been a nail biter since childhood and would love to be able to stop. I have wondered a few times if hypnotherapy would work for this problem and have decided that this is the year to finally sort it out.
Can you please let me know what the prices of the sessions would be, and do you still operate out of the office behind your house? Also what are your office hours as I am no longer based in London so would need to come to you on my days off - either a Tuesday or a Wednesday.
Kind regards

You did wonders on me as always, I feel so good 🙂 much more positive and relaxed. Thank you ever so much!!!

We are back to London on Monday night, so if you had anything on Tuesday after lunch or Wednesday after lunch would be much appreciated.

Subject: Quit Smoking


Hi Robert,

I came to your over a year ago to get hypnotised for smoking. Fifteen months on and I am still smoke free and very very happy about that. I have friends who constantly moan about not being able to give up smoking and I try and make them consider hypnotherapy… all my friends who have tried it have seen success as well! So thank you.

The thing I am wanting to enquire about today is my sleeping. The issues is two fold – firstly I seem to find it impossible to have a full nights sleep – sleeping right the way through from say 11pm – 7am. The second part of the problem is when I do wake up I go and have a snack in the kitchen. I don’t snack on much but it annoys me so much. I seem to be fully awake when I am doing it, but don’t seem to have the rationbal power like you would in the day to go – No, I don’t want that cracker etc. I am desperately trying to lose weight as I am getting married next year. I have also just had to have major surgery which has taken me out of action for 2 months with regards to the gym, so would love to cut this pattern out once and for all.

It is a family trait. My father used to lock the kitchen door and hide the key for my mum, and my brothers wife has a cupboard in the kitchen just for the night stuff for my brother so he doesn’t start eating peanuts or anything he can choke on.

Is this something you think you can help me with?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Robert,

Thank you for yesterday. I really enjoy listening to you. I love you analogies . I learned more about myself yesterday than I have in the whole of my life up until now. I now understand how to deal with myself by accepting what I am and dealing with the different parts of me. Thank you. Today I feel relaxed and strong and secure more than ever before. I don’t feel the need to prove anything to myself through actions or words. It really is as if a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders after 40 years . Thank you again, S.

Subject: Weight Loss

30 jan 2011

Hi Robert

It's unlikely that you'll remember me but a couple of years ago I came to you for a weight-loss/self-confidence session. It was a very eye-opening experience and incredibly helpful, I seem to remember the session lasted near to three hours as I think there was quite a lot to say and work with in the end. You advised that I returned for a 'booster' session, as it were, as you felt that the root of my issues ran a lot deeper than either of us had anticipated, but the following months showed a vast improvement in my attitude to eating and in turn my self-confidence and I decided not to come back for a follow-up session. I did also lose a significant amount of weight and was generally a lot happier with life - so thank you!

In the last year, however, I've started to see some of the old habits creep back. Most obviously my self-esteem seems to have deteriorated and is affecting me at work and in my personal life, I've started the old cravings for salt, I'm constantly picking, serving larger than necessary portions and I've lost the motivation for exercise that I gained following my session with you.

There's no doubt in my mind that the year following being hypnotised showed a huge improvement in my attitude and self-esteem but I feel like I've stepped back quite a few spaces and I wonder if it might be an idea to come back for that follow-up session you mentioned about two years ago?!

I'd be interested to hear what you think and look forward to hearing from you.

With best wishes

Subject: Fear of Flying
Hi Robert,

Sorry for the lamentably long period between your reply and mine. I had
every intention of getting back to you, but time kept slipping away from

Despite my worries about the flight to Berlin, once I got on the plane
the whole experience was a lot of fun. I remembered how much I enjoyed flying as a child and how exciting it was to be able to see the world spread out below.

I wanted to thank you for helping me with this phobia, I still get the
willies a little sometimes, mainly at night, but it is nothing compared
what I experienced before. I am hoping to get on another flight within
the next year, so that I can keep my good perspective on flying!

I had such an unusual sensation from the hypnotherapy, for days
afterward I felt oddly brittle and as the date neared I felt that maybe
the therapy had not worked. Fortunately I was very late getting to my
flight so did not have much to time to worry about any of it! Once I got

journey (although I had a lot more time to think about flying while

Dear Robert,
I'm feeling rather bad about not contacting you after your amazing work on me :). Don't know if you remember me..I came to see you in January and I've been a changed person since then. Thanx a million for that, I still listen to your recording and working on myself every day :).
I was just wondering whether you'd be able to see my partner, Brad for a session. He has been getting really bad panick attacks lately, he is a very nervy person, lot of stress kept inside him all the time so would be great if you could help him too. Do you work on Bank Holidays as well?
Brad is normally off on Fridays.
I hope you are well and I look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Robert Mathews,

Thank you so much for all your help. I was suffering from a relationship break up. It was easily the hardest most painful time in my life.

For nearly a month I had not eaten properly, had only two or three hours sleep a night , suffered from anxiety, felt isolated and alone. I was not coping well at all.

I called you to book an appointment as you was my last hope.

From the moment I meet you, you was friendly and put me at ease, I immediately felt relaxed and comfortable. As you was explaining to me why I was reacting the way I did to my situation I found your explanations and reasoning brilliant.

My session with you last appox 1 hour 50 minutes and when I left I was completely cured. You ended nearly a month of unbearable suffering in just under 2 hours.

Not only that I have never felt better in my entire life I am relaxed and happy. I still fell fantastic now my family, friends and even my manager have all noticed the difference in me . Thank you so much I cannot express how much I appreciate what you have done for me,

Hello Robert,

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the session yesterday, it was an absolute pleasure to meet you.
It really was so beneficial, can't believe how well I took to the hypnosis. When I was driving home I had a really calm happy feeling; I felt like I'd been re-booted! ha ha.
I've taken on all the advice on and will continue to not put myself under pressure with everything....remember the story and techniques you told me about 🙂
I have a whole new level of respect for hypnotherapy, its an amazing form of treatment and the experience is potentially life changing. So I think what I'm saying is I'm glad I made that trip to London!
I promise I will keep you updated and give you a ring soon

Subject: Insomnia


Dear Robert,

I visited you 9 or 10 years ago on the recommendation of P.O
In one session you managed to help me
quit smoking finally after smoking for 20 years. It was a huge relief
to me for which I will be eternally grateful to

I saw recently a recommendation on Paul's facebook page for your Deep Sleep CD. I have been having trouble sleeping through the night due to joint pain caused by palindromic rheumatism. In the past the flares were less frequent and I was been able to control the inflammation with
ibuprofen and homeopathic remedies but now that I am going through menopause the joint pain and swelling seems constant. The rheumatologist would like me to try taking Plaquenil to possibly relieve the symptoms and stop joint destruction, but I am wary of taking this strongmedicine with all the side effects.

I downloaded your Deep Sleep CD which I have listened to three times
and it already seems to be helping me sleep deeper,
but I still wake up after a couple of hours when my wrist or fingers
begin to go stiff and start hurting. The problem with rheumatism
is that it travels and I never know which joint will be affected
next. Sometimes it's my feet, other times it might be the muscle
in my forearm or my wrist and fingers. I am living in Amsterdam and I
don't think I can make it over to London any time soon for a
session with you. I was wondering if you had any recommendations or
CD's for pain control or ridding myself of this condition once
and for all.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

4 feb 2009

Hi Robert,

Just a quick email to let you know that my trip to G over Christmas was a huge success, and made all the more enjoyable due to the fact that I didn't need or think about going to the loo whilst I was there (well other than anyone would!). Travelling in G was one of my concerns, and I don't know if subconsciously that consolidated the hypnotherapy session for me, but for some reason when I got there I found myself almost instantly 'cured' (in a way I hadn't felt in England)! Before departing I had been thinking about it a bit, and had even listened to the CD as a refresher and put it on my ipod to take with me. But as soon as I arrived I felt calm and confident that I wouldn't worry about needing the loo - and didn't worry about it for the whole holiday! I undertook several long (e.g. 7 hour) car journeys, and discovered that travelling in a car can be fun when you are not worrying about whether you will need the loo! The only time I thought about it whilst I was there was to think 'oh - I'm not worrying!' and then I would forget about it again! And, I'm pleased to report that things have remained that way since home. I truly believe that this time next year I will genuinely wonder what my problem had been - as I remember you suggesting to me! So thank you once again! I have recommended you to my very best friend R (who has supported me through this!) and she has an appointment with you on Sunday for nail biting. I hope she has as much success as I - and I am confident she will!
Kind regards,

It really was amazing I haven't been tempted to smoke at all since, even when I've been

I'd really like to arrange to have a few more sessions with you as I've been quite depressed
lately and think you might be able to help me to overcome my lack of self-confidence/self-esteem
which seems to have hold of my subconscious at the moment. I'm a student and have exams in 4 months

Hello Robert, I came to see you on July 15th 2008 in a right state over my smoking habit that had gone from smoking in a play in 1998 to 20 a day come the summer of this year. My lungs were hurting, I could barely walk fast let alone run and I stank to high hell. I was really at my lowest ebb with it and it had a total control over me - and was hurting my bank balance too! A good friend of mine who had smoked 20 a day since he was in his late teens (he's now in his mid thirties) came to see you eighteen months ago and hasn't touched a cigarette since, not one. He has no craving for them and cannot ever see himself smoking again. I was dubious and nervous about hynotherapy but I had tried patches, pure will power, gum, you name it. I had given up for a few months at a time but always ened up having "just the one" - and then soon found myself buying a pack of ten etc etc... So I came to see you in mid July this year. Do you know something? I haven't touched a cigarette since! Not one, not even one drag! The craving subsided within a few days and after that it was out of sight out of mind. For this I am seriously grateful. Not only have you enabled me to kick a ruinous habit but you've also saved me in the region of £650 already. I just wanted to say thank you. I have recommended you to my brother and sister and I think it's highly likely you'll be meeting them in the next six months. (if they know whats good for them!) All the best and keep up the great work.

Well, I am back in Australia now and have been for 6 years. I wanted to say that it is 8 years since I've seen you and 8 years since I've had a cigarette and it's all because of you. I still can't believe you did it and often tell my story to people that smoke and try to convert them. My niece is living in London at the moment and I am trying to get her there to see you so she may have the same result and live a longer healthier life. It's such a scary thing to give up smoking as you become so dependant on it but you made it so easy for me to do it. I tell me I had nothing to do with giving up smoking. You did all the work. It's such a filthy disgusting habit and can't believe I used to do it. So thank you once again. In my eyes you really are a miracle worker.

I sang in a concert the other night, and I felt truly glamourous from head to toe (or should I say to finger nail!). The power of the mind is a wonderful thing.

Subject: Smoking

I was given your details by a friend of mine's boyfriend whom you helped to give up smoking - and 6 months on he is still not even craving a cigarette.

I too need help, but not in giving up smoking - mine is giving up drinking. I have tried A.A. but am still finding it hard to stop drinking and feel the only way now is hynotherapy.

Please could you let me know how to go about arranging an appointment and whether I need a consultation first or whether the hypnosis is carried out on the first visit. Also could you let me know what days/times you are "open".

Many thanks for your assistance.

Subject: Agoraphobia

Hi Robert,

Its your ex- agoraphobic patient here V. Just thought I'd let
you know how I'm getting on. Well, the most triumphant thing to date, I am
actually working now and have been for three weeks. I felt confident enough
to go out and get a job and I did. I applied on a Wednesday, got a call back
on the Thursday offering me an interview, got interviewed on the Friday, got
the job 6:00 that evening and started work the following Monday. So it all
went a bit quick but it definetly has worked out fine! I work for an
International (...........) Company called (........) based in (.........) as
an office administrator, and I am loving it. I couldn't feel better about
myself right now!

On top of that I'm going to the cinema more often and the pub every friday
(although I still don't drink, but have a laugh anyway) In two weeks time
I'm going with my boyfriend (.........) to (..........)) for a weeks holiday. Not yet
ready to travel abroad, but I'm looking forward to it all the same.

In general I feel a lot more confident within myself and the agoraphobia is
well under control. I'm even moving out of my house and into a flat in
December because I feel confident enough to let go of my once severe
attachment to my mum and get out there and live on my own- well not
completely on my own, with (........).

I couldn't be happier at the moment. Things are going great!!!!

Thanks for all your help Robert.

Hi Robert, I gave up smoking successfully thanks to a session with you some 18 months ago for which I am eternally grateful. I'm emailing to ask you whether you can help with something entirely different. I would love to quickly absorb and learn new langauges which I have always been interested in and want to know if hypnotherapy can help me in any way. In other words can it somehow help me to absorb and remember more efficiently than through the regular route of sheer parrot-fashion learning? I'd be happy to undergo a session if it would help me to get to grips with another language especially with regards to pronunciation and structure (I'm presently fascinated with Czech and Spanish).

Subject: Cocaine addiction 14th July 2004

Dear Robert,

I want to thank you very, very much. I received your CD about three weeks ago it was to help me to resist keep taking cocaine. As soon as I had listened to it for the first time I felt positive, (although I almosy cried a lot during the first listening). I almost couldn't wait to test my reaction to coke if it should come my way. Well, during the last few weeks I have had many opportunities to indulge along with my peers in coke but I am thankful to say I have had absolutely no urge to do any myself at all.

I have had people 'lining up' and snorting right in front of me and it feels so good to turn it down - something I just couldn't do before I listened to your CD.

I feel so confident that hypnotherapy works that I have enclosed a cheque for another personalised CD for comfort eating which I will explain about in a minute(.........)

Once again Robert I can't thank you enough for the hypnotherapy CD 'Giving Up Cocaine' . I can't quite believe how it has changed me and I am such a fan of hypnotherapy now!!!

By all means use my letter but I would like to remain anonymous

incredibly grateful for your help, as I feel so much better about myself
and my lifestyle.

I have recommended a few people to you since, (Harry and I have referred 4
people to you so far - and I have a few more people in the pipeline!!) who
have also enjoyed the same success with the battle against smoking - we're
all pretty amazed by how something we formerly suspected as a kind of black
magic has had such wonderful results! I have since sent off for a
Visualisation book and my boyfriend is currently reading about Sophrology,

My friend H H came to see you some eight months ago to quit smoking. She is still a non smoker to this day and thought it would be good for me to give you a visit as well. I have tried on numerous occasions to stop, but regrettably, failed each time. I have used patches, chewing gum, Zyban, a session at the Alan Carr 'Stop Smoking' Clinic and one hypnosis session with someone in East London who's article in the Telegraph was the persuasion to make me try. I smoke about thirty cigarettes a day and have a true love affair with each one of them I keep telling myself on a daily basis that I am going to stop this retched habit, but find it incredible hard to imagine how to cope with life without. I am therefore hoping that you, as my truly last resort, will be able to help me. My only fear is that should it not work the first time, I am afraid I might not give it another try... I truly look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards,

Hello Robert

I came to you last year regarding my smoking addiction - that was an
astounding success and I'm so happy that I did it. Now I'm back for more.

I am about to embark on a PGCE Secondary Course (ie. Teacher Training for
Secondary Schools). I'm looking forward to it, however I think I'm going
to be very nervous when I have to stand up in front of a class. I did a
Teaching Course last year, but I was extremely nervous, and started shaking
when I stood up in front of the class. I know that this is entirely in my
head, and that once I've been doing it for a while I'm sure it won't happen
anymore, but I think a hypnosis session, which would give me more
confidence speaking in front of a class/ in public would be very useful.


Do you think there is anything you can do? And if so, how many sessions
will it take and how much will it cost?

From: D : 21.6.03

Subject: Smoking


You treated me in October of last year, before I came to live in Central
America, for smoking. Since then I haven´t smoked a single cigarette and the
experiences I have had give me the impression it is extremely unlikely I
will ever do so again in my life.

I am returning to England for a few days around the 25 of July and I would
be interested to know what help you could offer me for alcohol. My problem
isnt that I am a chronic alcoholic rather that I drink every day a small
amount - 2 or 3 beers - and some days more than this to the point that I
start acting in a strange manner which is extremely undesirable not to say
embarrasing. This daily drinking is a habit I have had since I first went
to university, brought on mainly by boredom and a bit by laziness.

The thing is that I have reached the stage where, like with smoking, this is
something I no longer want in my life, as I have much more important and
worthwhile things I should be doing with my time. However, as with every
habit, changing the behaviour patterns is the hard thing even if the will is
there. So, I am hoping that your methods could help me to put the vital
seeds of behavioral change in my mind as your treatment for smoking did so

If you could give me a brief outline of the treatment procedure, costs and
number of treatments needed I would be very grateful. By the way, I
recommended and continue to recommend your quit smoking treatment to
everyone I know... many many thanks for this.

Dear Robert

About a month ago you hypnotised me for fear of flying. I thought I'd wait
to get in touch until I'd been on my first flight after the hypnosis - I
went to Ireland the weekend before last (a nice short flight to get back
into it!) It was loads better, and I felt far calmer before and during the
flight than I have done for a few years. Also, I haven't had any nightmares
about flying and feel fine when I see planes now. There were a couple of
times on both flights that I still felt quite anxious, when the plane turned
and when the engine noise changed - and I wondered if you think that is
normal, and will get better, or whether I should come back for another
session before my next flight (mid Sept)?

Either way, thanks so much, as I feel much better about flying than I have
done for a very long time!

Hope you had a good weekend? I must say that
I have been feeling really good since our appointment
and haven't had any strong feelings of nausea at all.
However, I have experienced a milder feeling of
quesiness in a couple of situations and I think this
may have something to do with what you said about
giving the brain very specific instructions for
certain occurences. So, if it is possible, I would
like to arrange another appointmnent to try and
conquer the problem completely. As it is difficult to
speak to you during the day, I would be grateful if
you could ring me at home after 4:30pm on 0208 8.......
or e-mail me a time. Once again, I can't
thank you enough for what you did on Friday
Many Thanks,

Robert, Hi, it`s A.M. We met on the 2nd April for a stop smoking session. Glad to say I do not smoke now thank you! I have been out of work since then and would like a session for confidence, assertiveness, positiveness etc ready for interviews. I am free anytime, so an appointment ASAP would be appreciated.

Dear Robert

You have been recommended to me personally by a family member. I would like to make an appointment to see you regarding my (what has been diagnosed by my doctor as) mild depression. I was taking anti-depressants in the summer last year but came off them after a couple of months as I experienced a few strange side-effects. I have also seen two counsellors on and off over the course of the past 4 years, but feel in some ways that this has increased rather than decreased my problems.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello Robert,

Just to let you know that everything went great last night.I carried this new self-confidence with me and got the same response from others as I did the last time.

Because of that Eva was also the same as before and everything was fine.

Speak to you soon,

Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you and let you know how we are
getting on.

Me (Jane), my boyfriend Scott and my sister Kate all came to see you in
between Christmas and the New Year to quit smoking. I am pleased to tell you that to date none of us have had a cigarette and feel very positive that we not smoke again. I am sure that had we not come to see you we would have all been back on the fags by now!!! We have recommended you to friends who also want to give up smoking and one who was phobic about sick.

Thank you again for all your help, I am sure that our kids do not even
remember we ever smoked now which is just what I wanted!!

Keen to come along for a one to one session to end this life destroying habit of mine!

A friend came to see you several months ago and hasn't smoked since!

I know you are very busy and maybe booked up for a while but if oyu can give me an idea of when you would be available that would be great.

Dear Robert,

My friend H...... H..... came to see you some eight months ago to quit smoking. She is still a non smoker to this day and thought it would be good for me to give you a visit as well.

Hi Robert, I just wanted to say that it has been several weeks and I have not smoked. I went out socially and drank a few glasses of wine and found it relatively easy not too smoke. The urge was only there a couple of times and was fleeting instead of all-consuming!!! I will definitely reccomend you to my friends. Thanks again

I will give you a ring to arrange another appointment. I know that you have had good results in cutting my friends' smoking habit - is that on the same principle as cutting food groups?

Speak soon

Hi Robert

My name is RR, i came almost two years ago to you for smoking and i
still have not had a cigarette. For that i am very grateful, i have
recommended to numerous people who have also had successful hypnotherpy.

I am this time wanting aid in weight loss, i am finding it very hard to lose
weight that i have recently gained due to bad habits etc. How much would a
treatment for this be?

Kind Regards

Hi Robert

Just thought I would give you an update on my condition. Well I am actually feeling a hundred times better. I have been using my hypnosis CD and that with the Botox and another steroid cream that the doctor gave me my condition is definitely improving and I haven't actually scratched for a few weeks.

My only fear now is that I can't believe that it has stopped and I am almost waiting for it to come back which I know I shouldn't be thinking of that but after 18 years it's difficult. Now I just want to get on with things.

Anyway I don't think I will be coming back to you at this stage.

Thanks again

hey robert,

I just wanted to say hello, and to let you know how I
have been getting on.

I am NS, I came to see you a couple of
weeks for death phobia related to my swollen lymph
node. I have been suffering since January and you told
me I was suffering from post traumatic syndrome and
hypnotised me.

I have been feeling very good ever since. I have been
laughing again, I am no longer scared of dying. I no
longer suffer from anxiety and panic attacks over my
health thanks to you.

I still have irrational thoughts of disease
(especially when I am exhausted) but it does not
cripple me like it used to. The cancer fear has
totally disappeared, but thoughts of HIV are still
lingering on my mind.

I would love to come for a top up session because I
don't want those thoughts to grow again. I feel so
free now that, you could say, I am exercising

I hope you are well. My number is

My name is S ( a French person ) , I have stopped smoking with you 2 months ago.

First , thank you , I do not smoke anymore and it is amazing. I still cannot believe it.

Since , this experience I would like very much to learn Hypnosis.
