Hi Ray,

Hope you are well and enjoyed the rest of your weekend.

Just an update after having my hypnotherapy on Saturday morning. I haven’t had a cigerrette and haven’t given it a thought. The only time I think about having a cigarette is after I’ve eaten but it lasts for a split second and the feeling is good as quickly as it comes.

I am out for drinks on Saturday so that’ll be the real test for me. But feeling happy and confident with the results so thank you!

Kind regards,

Charlotte Jarred

Hope you are well ☺️
Just wanted to thank you , it’s been 5 months since I no longer smoke or crave cigarettes . Seemed to be impossible, but you made it happen. Couldn’t be any happier!
Thank you again, I’d definitely recommend your name to my friends !
