"Thank you for my freedom!  I'm past the 9 year mark and I'm confident that I will never smoke again.  I've made many failed attempts to quit smoking over the past 30 years but it was my sessions with you that finally gave me the help I needed to succeed. I would (and will!) recommend you to any smoker who is ready to quit!"

Wayne G., San Diego, CA


"Hypnosis with Joseph was a life changing experience. I was skeptical in the beginning not knowing what to expect... 

I was very impressed that I was able to stop smoking after more than 20 years of being a smoker. Then, I had the second session and we worked on some emotional issues. It made my life lighter and more peaceful. He listened to me, he understood me. He is a great coach! I never thought I could be happier, healthier and more relaxed in such a short period of time. Thank you!"

"My time with Joseph and Eli was pure love and light into creating my vision... Their work supported and inspired my dreams. Thank you dear ones... I am so grateful for your work!!!"

Bobbi V., Brooklyn, NY


I smoked (a lot) for over 55 years and believed that I would never quit. I tried to quit several times in the past; once I quit for a year.  But for a long time I had just given up.

I knew that I couldn't do it alone. I had a couple of friends who had quit with the help of hypnotherapy some years ago. I didn't fully understand the process but was willing to try.

Joseph has an ex-smoker's understanding of the problem. He is very caring and makes the effort to learn and address the personal issues involved. He provided me with an array of tools to support my non-smoking decision during the physical withdrawal period as well as for the behavioral and emotional dependence. He has also been very generous with his time and support in following up with me through phone conversations and e-mails.

I do feel confident that I can stay smoke free. I whole-heartedly recommend that anyone who is fighting this addiction give Joseph and his caring approach a try.
