"Sometimes (ok a lot of the time) I really feel like one and say ok Im going to have one, it wont hurt (especially after a few drinks with friends)
But although the urge is there I still havent touched one, despite a half open packet still sitting in my cupboard.
Sometimes I THINK I really want one, but when it comes to the physical movement of going to get one, I have no interest.
I NEVER thought I would have given up
I thought I was a lost cause, destined to smoke forever."
Short of getting cancer, I didnt think I could ever stop (Hey - even if I had got cancer, I dont think I would have stopped!)
Your trusting and 100% ethical approach not only made me feel relaxed but has had the desired result - much to my own amazement!
I can even have a glass or two (or three!) of wine without lighting up - I thought that was impossible!!
But a BIG thankyou for getting rid of the biggest problem in my life - the fact I was killing myself by choice. I cant believe how much better I feel - and I have lost 2 kilos - I thought I'd be struggling with weight but you addressed that too!!
The drive, the effort, the traffic stress was worth it!"
"For although I stll feel like something is missing sometimes, and my brain says "SMOKE TIME!!".......
"I am a non-smoker - and cant believe how disgusted I feel when I see others smoke when I would have been puffing away with them previously - thinking I was enjoying it! (AT a BBQ last week my 'smoking buddy'"went out for a cigarette - my body said "WOOHOO lets go!" but my brain said - Oh yuck - look at her, poor thing still stuck on smoking!) and I didn't have second thought - when she came back in - the smell!!!
OH MY GOD!!!! Did I smell like that!!!!!????? (As smokers we all know we stink a little after a smoke but OH MY it doesnt just smell - IT STINKS!!!) And I thought I had been fooling my clients for the last few years by chucking a chewy in before I spoke to them.
They must have all known - how embarrassing!!!"
"Thanks for giving me my life back - I have told everyone I know about you and I so hope they come and see you!
"I will be coming to see you again soon myself to address other pertinent matters in my life with regards to my career, confidence, procrastination etc.
Until then I hope you are fully booked with people whose desire to smoke is diminishing (but their current belief they can't live without it overrides the decision to "JUST DO IT")"
"Feel free to use this as a testimonial - and if used and you are thinking of quitting "DO NOT HESITATE to see Greg - he can change your life!"
(Feel free to call me on 0408 079 645 to verify the above testimonial)
"PS GREG - will be coming to see u soon re smoking top-up, confidence and procrastinantion - sure u can help me with this also"
"I could'nt be more happier. My problem was I was running to the fridge at nights." ......."Now ( after seeing you ) I don't even feel like eating it ( junk food ) , that's the wonderful thing." ..... "I've lost about 2.5 kg in one week."
"I'd normally lose weight then put it back on" ....."but in 3 weeks I've lost 4kgs" ..... "I've broken that cycle of just losing and gaining"
"Very good. I've lost 4 kilos now and my clothes are a lot looser and it feels really terrific."..... "I use your CD almost every day and that helps tremendously to slow me down and calm me down and I go on easily for the rest of the day"
Gave up smoking from first Session ..... "repulsive"
"I had a session with you early this month, December '08. Just wanted to let you know that it stuck. Totally quit cigarettes from the moment I left your studio. Of course, I imagine I did most of the work in booking the session, turning up and paying for it, thus you only had to 'go through the motions' as such, but I must say you did it well !"
"Not only have I quit cigis but I've started exercising and working out and am feeling more alive and focussed, which I attribute to the White Screen gambit and the "... better in every way everyday..." spike you drove in to the treatment."
"Actually, it's strange: I walked out of the session thinking What a racket! I could light up a cigarette right now if I wanted to.
And then it occured to me...
But I don't want to."
"It's been almost three and a half weeks and the habit still calls to me after a meal or when I drive, but I always think Why on Earth would I want to do that? I don't smoke. I can't see myself ever taking it up again."
"Now I look on smokers with pitty; slaves to the addiction; what a terrible affliction! I can even hang out with smoker friends and go out drinking without feeling any desire for a cigarette."
"Life is so much better without them.
Thankyou and Merry Christmas,"
"P.S. I will want to book another session with you sometime in January or February. I'm just not sure how to state my request. It's something about boosting my confidence in general, but particularly with women, and overcoming fear of rejection and approach anxiety, just being more outgoing, something like that."
Booked in by partner. Now down from over 90 cigs. a week to none from one Session with Gregory.
"I need to lose weight. I've been hypnotised before for weight loss and it didn't work. The hypnotist before told me things I already knew - like to trim fat from meat and to eat fresh fruit and vegetables to lose weight. I already knew these things and so nothing changed."
Since seeing Gregory "I've lost 2 kgs in the first week and I'm going strong."
Uncontrollable tremors and shaking of arms. Stopped in one Session. Nothing else worked.
Peter’s story :
"Because I thought that I would try something different as all the other stuff I'd tried didn't work. We looked up on the net and came across Gregory's website and gave him a call. He had got back to us and said that he could fit me in that night.
I had seen my GP, had a EEG done, went to see a Neurologist, had a Brain wave done, had X-rays and went to see a Chiropractor. None of these showed up anything and the Neurologist and Chiropractor didn't work."
"Gregory put me under and spoke to me about all different parts of my body, he brought me back but I still had a bit of my tremors. Gregory then placed me under again but this time it was deeper.
Once I was brought back again I was amazed to see that all the tremors had completely stopped.
The tremors had disappeared for 4 days and I felt a lot happier in myself. The only reason the tremors had came back that morning was that I had a car accident, but later that night I went back to see Gregory and the tremors had totally stopped again. I am so grateful for everything he has done for me."
"I was very pleased and amazed that Gregory was able to help to the extent of my tremors actually disappearing as soon as I walked out of there. I even sleep better at night and am more relaxed all the time.
My GP was very pleased at how this worked and told me to keep going to see him. She is that pleased that she asked for some cards from Gregory so if any other patients needed one that they could go see him."

Louise for over eating and snacking on junk food
"I have a ten year old daughter suffering from severe specific phobia anxiety. She believes she is going to choke, and therefore has great difficulty eating.
Can hypnosis help her ?
She has been seeing a wonderful psychologist, but progress is very slow, and sometimes backwards.
I have heard mixed reports about hypnosis, but I am willing to try anything to help her. This has been going on for almost a year, with a relapse in April.
She is a beautiful sensitive child, and I want to help her get better."
Email received ..........
Hi Gregory !
"I came to see you a couple of weeks ago with my daughter (name withheld).
I wanted to let you know that we both really benefited from the experience. With (name withheld), the change was immediate and spectacular !
The first thing she asked when we left was whether we could get Krispy Kreme doughnuts on the way home.
She then proceeded to eat everything she could find when we got home."
"She still has some issues, but the improvement was fantastic !
I will call soon to arrange another appointment for us, but wanted to let you know how worthwhile it was" !
Shaun - stopped smoking today after one quick session. Says "No I'm not going to touch one ever again ".
"When I decided I wanted to quit smoking I contacted Gregory in regards to receiving some sessions in hypnosis to provide me with the mental tools to do so.
Not only did I get these tools, I was offered a great opportunity to explore life, work and stress issues with Greg. Having undergone some changes in my life after breaking an engagement, working in a new job and juggling work/life/friends balance, the hypnosis sessions with Greg to date have set the wheels in motion for me to make some changes in my life and to not be afraid to do so."
"I have already obtained a greater confidence to finally start making decisions rather than sitting on the fence and finding loop holes. I feel Greg really engages with me, offers practical suggestions as well as long-term suggestions to consider exploring.
Greg has an endearing personal yet professional approach which has been both encouraging and empowering. I have started using some of his suggested techniques (which I can apply to other parts of my life (including not smoking) and I feel I am doing better."
"I am more focused and positive than I have been in some time. Thank you Greg!
I would definitely recommend Greg's hypnosis sessions for all aspects of one’s life. "
Stefanie - 27 yrs
I just wanted to tell my story, so far, on giving up smoking.
I have been smoking for approx 25 years and finally have decided I want to QUIT. I have tried all of the following:
Nicotine Patches - am allergic to them
Nicotine Gum - I found that I could just get rid of it and light up yet another ciggie".
"Zyban - I ended up with ulcers in my mouth and felt like a zombie so I quit quitting.
So I looked up the Internet and typed in Hypnosis to Quit Smoking and found Gregory's website.
I gave him a call and felt immediately relaxed by the sound of his voice. I asked how much and was also pleasantly surprised with how little Gregory charges, up to a quarter of the price of some others I have heard of."
"I booked my first session. I went to Greg and found that he is the most gentle man and is very understanding. After my first session with Greg, I cut down smoking by approx 90%.
While at this session, I booked a 2nd session. The 2nd session was 5 days after the 1st, and I have now cut down to 1 ciggie per day and I am feeling great."
"I have also booked a 3rd session in a month's time, so see how I go, however I am feeling very positive.
My advice to those who REALLY want to give up the ciggies is to make an appointment with Gregory, he makes you feel so comfortable and is such a genuine man.
THANK YOU SO MUCH GREGORY!!!!!! You have helped me where all of the chemical solutions have not."
"I approached Greg with mixed feelings because I was a bit skeptical about the whole hypnotism thing because I always saw it as a way to make people to do things against their will."
"The moment I spoke to Greg on the phone I knew
not only that I had made the right decision, but also had chosen the right
person. Greg has an unbelievable way of making you feel so comfortable and
relaxed about him and the hypnosis process.
I approached Greg to help me obtain a success mindset."
"I was raised and brought up in a very negative environment and was really convinced even as a young kid that I would probably amount to nothing, and it seemed for a long time that no matter what I set out to do, it ended up in failure.
Over the last 3 years I had simply had enough and so begun my journey in to Personal Development. I have read many books, listened to many cds, watched many dvds, by all of the top authors and teachers in the world and yet I progressed more in 3 weeks with Greg than in that entire 3 years."
"Simply put, Greg has transformed my life. I now think clearer, Feel happier, I'm more confident, I'm more focused. My relationship with my wife and son is better than its ever been, I'm 20 times more happier in my work and even my boss is absolutely blown away with the different attitude.
I just feel that I have absolute control of my life."
"Greg doesn't just supply you with the tools you need to accomplish your goal, but he goes one step further and supplies you with the knowledge which incidentally I have paid over $20,000 from various teachers to acquire.
Greg is not just my hypnotist. He is a good friend and a mentor to me and I personally promise that whatever your want may be, Greg can help."
"I just want to thank you so much assisting me in quitting the cigarettes. I
had been to another 'well known' hypnotherapist but just couldn't quit them.
After a chance of seeing your online advert I am so please we worked
together to quit them. It only took 3 goes and I am still off them 7 weeks
"Please give me email to anyone wanting a personal testimonial I am more than
happy to recommend you and your services"
"Stress and physical illness led me to Gregory’s door. Whilst I had not undergone hypnotherapy before, I was quite open to both the process and the positive outcomes I hoped to achieve."
"During weekly hypnotherapy sessions we explored a variety of problem areas and I learnt to deeply relax and enjoy the process of release. I have now introduced meditation into my daily regime to assist me in maintaining balance in my life."
" I have found a wonderful space within myself where I can relax, explore, release and encourage future positive changes in my life. This personal tool, and a conscious effort to invest in my own future, enables me to introduce this life changing capability into my own future.
Gregory, I wish you well in your endeavours and offer many thanks for the time, advice and encouragement you gave me."
"Take care and many thanks for your help in recent times."
"I made contact with Greg for the purpose of having hypnotherapy assist in my goals for weight loss.
I am only new at hypnosis but even after my first session I found that I was able to refuse the “bad food” without even thinking twice about it. After my second session I was completely in the zone. I was surprised and so happy that refusing bad foods was no longer something that I had to agonise over. I could simply say no."
"After 3 months, I felt that I needed a refresher as I was going on a month holiday and did not want to undo all the good work, so I went back to Greg. Each time that I am hypnotised, I find that I am able to go quicker and deeper. In fact, on my 3rd visit (my last visit so far), I even asked Greg to address the issue of my smoking. I had given up smoking about 4 years prior but had started having a few cigarettes on the week-end. Greg bought that issue into my hypnosis and “voila” I have not had one craving since. Completely gone !"
"I will continue to see Greg when I feel the need to keep my temptations under control and to boost my will power. Thanks so much Greg for doing what you do."
