Note: Statements and testimonials are representative of our top active participants using hypnosis. Some people may make little or no change with hypnosis. Why? It does take effort to make change (in any system) and it just won’t happen if you do not learn and apply the tools. Worse, some people never even complete the training and sessions and therefore never see any results. These claims are not a guarantee of your change, and may not be average of participants. Individual results will vary greatly and in accordance to your commitment, effort, determination, hard work, and ability to follow directions. Summary: As in any self-change program and with everything in life – you get out what you put in.
