My name is Paul I am 43 years old and had been a marijuana smoker since the age of 16, my smoking started with solid as a bit of fun experimenting with friends and then gradually turned into a bad habit that stuck with me throughout my teens.
During my twenties I moved on to weed and then on to skunk and continued for many years I would say I smoked 6 to 12 joints a day from when I woke up to when I went to bed.
The effect of smoking seemed to have caught up with me over the last few years especially with working and becoming a father and not having the patience I should have with both of them.
I had thought about giving up many times but just could not do it on my own, a friend of mine suggested I try hypnosis and NLP which I did not really believe could work for me even though it had worked for them to give up cigarettes and Mick came highly recommended, I really did want to give up and had nothing to lose so I gave it a go.
I was a bit concerned about sitting in a chair with someone I didn't know but Mick was great he put my mind at ease and the session was really good and relaxing and I felt it would work throughout.
Well here I am 6 weeks later and a non smoker it was one of the best investments I have ever made, I feel like a new man I have joined a health club and taken my son swimming and trained more times in the six weeks than I have in the past 4 years.
My family and friends all notice the difference in me and can't believe I have done it they are all so pleased and proud of me but most of all I am so pleased with myself.
Mick there are no words to thank you enough for what you have shown me I can do with help from you and a little bit of will power to see it through.
As you know I have given several friends your number and a few have already had the pleasure of seeing you.
Thank you again Mick for working your magic on me I will continue to tell anyone who is interested about you and what you can do for anyone who wants' to quit
I'd thought and tried to give up smoking several times before, after six attempts in one year I decided I need a little help. I contacted Mick and after 2 sessions successfully gave up smoking. I persuaded my mother to give up with the help of Mick and am also pleased to say she gave up after smoking for over 40 years with his help
I have over the years tried everything to give up smoking, with no success. One session with Mick and at last success! Highly delighted, richer and healthier, thank you so much Mick!
I approached my visit to Mick with a mix of cynicism and clutching at straws - against a background of 45 years smoking, and many number of failed attempts to quit. It's now 2 ½ weeks since the session and it seems to be working, I'm even hopeful that it could have worked to the extent that, at last, I'm free. What a blessed relief
Mick's approach came across as open, sincere and (important to me) non-patronising. I felt able to trust him, and that trust was not abused
It's too early yet to feel improvements in self esteem, etc., I'm still at the incredulous stage, but I am allowing myself to be pleased with what I've done
I would unreservedly recommend Mick to anyone who was genuinely looking to escape smoking. The fee to Mick Is probably the best money I've spent in a long, long time
Many heart-felt thanks - really quite remarkable!
Since the session you did with me at Beadlow in November not once have I even thought about having a cigarette. I continue to be amazed at the result, as a previously seasoned smoker I must admit I was a little cynical about how easy you made it all sound, but here we are almost a month later and I feel much healthier already. You truly are an amazing man!
It really is a shame you don't take your talents on the road as you could do a whole lot of good up here in the north east
WGTF-GB Golf Coach
Well I am still off the fags and I can't believe how easy it has been I have had a couple of cigars when pi..ed over Christmas but I can accept that as I am no longer in the world of full-time smoking, thanks! Sometimes I think I could have a fag, but then I just think why and it goes away
Thanks again for all you have done, you are an amazing kind and real person
WGTF-GB Golf Coach
Mick, I would like to thank you for making me a non smoker, I am sure you would say "it is you that has done it, I helped you along the way" but without your help it would not have happened. I must also tell you that I cannot believe how easy it has been, the odd moment when I might say to myself I would have a fag now, if I was a smoker, and that's it. No urges at all just a great feeling, smelling nice and saving money
WGTF-GB Golf Coach
I have never been able to stop completely before now, and so now I know that I have a choice and I have chosen to be a non-smoker, this is a better way to think and I feel much better in being the boss of me and not the slave to the fags. I have also been eating more healthily, so thank you, if there is a will then yes there is a way!
So yes I would say that hypnosis has worked for me
Life Coaching Testimonial
Over the past few weeks I have participated in several life-coaching sessions from Mick McEvoy. He is a very astute coach, able to pinpoint the real issues and significant aspects of a situation. I found the life coaching sessions very helpful in making significant decisions for my life. Mick is able to identify desires and focus in on the real issues that we often can't see for ourselves
During the sessions Mick used various techniques to help me to identify what I want out of my life, and what are the major drivers for me. The questioning and discussion was challenging and thought-provoking
Now I feel very confident and positive in moving forward into a new stage of my life. The investment was well worth it, and I would certainly recommend Mick's help to others
Exams Study and Nerves Testimonial
I thought I would send you a short note just to say thank you for all the help you have given me with the professional exams
You helped me focus on my exam technique together with my confidence which has been a great help. I can honestly say that I went into the exam hall with great confidence and I actually enjoyed sitting them, which may sound a bit strange
It's amazing what is possible when you believe in yourself and you gave me the tools to help me create my ideal goals not only in my professional career but in my personal life too
I look forward to working with you in the future
Anxiety and confidence Testimonial
Mick has a very friendly and caring approach and on no occasion made me feel uncomfortable in his presence. He soon becomes acquainted with one's character and guides you accordingly. He was always totally focussed on what was troubling me and gave me the confidence to believe in myself
Mick gave me positive thoughts to work on and cleverly guided me into making my own decisions - he never presumed to tell me. Discussions were always personal to my problems unless an example situation was necessary to make a point
Mick has a very calming influence and I never left a session with any unresolved issues albeit some thought provoking ones. He would always be available to contact via email or telephone between sessions when I was finding life difficult again
Of all the people I have sought help from Mick is the only one who has made a positive difference. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mick McEvoy in helping anyone through some of life's difficult times
Was it worth the investment? Most certainly!
Self Esteem Testimonial
Since my first session I have noticed many differences in my life, which tend to happen without my conscious mind being involved, things I thought that I would have to live with for the rest of my life have disappeared almost as if I had never encountered the problem at all
I enjoyed the sessions very much, you totally put me at ease and I am highly impressed with the fact that you will remember even little things I have told you, you are totally patient and easy to trust
I feel so much better and happier in my life, friends and colleagues have noticed a difference that they can't quite put their finger on, my confidence and self esteem has raised a noticeable amount. I feel more capable and have a higher opinion of myself
I feel that you are more than qualified and feel the investment was well worth it, you very much don't do it for the money, that is clear to see and besides it has totally transformed my life
I would certainly recommend your services to anybody and everybody and after the sessions I feel refreshed, confident and excited about facing the day ahead with the correct tools to conquer what I need to conquer
Thank you from the bottom of my heart
Self Discovery Testimonial
When I first sought the therapy sessions, I felt that I was heavily loaded with anger, bitterness, disappointment and had low self esteem. As soon as I started the first session, I felt that Mick was showing me a different angle of myself and my life. The one which is positive with the capability of self-control. My sessions were simply a journey towards exploring inner resources
Once I started the sessions, I was amazed at the way Mick tried to tackle my problems and the techniques he taught me to handle my anger, to approach and react differently. The most inspiring aspect of my learning from Mick was the way he has changed my perception about life and my response to the external world around me. I simply feel that I was a lucky person, rich of resources. Having therapy sessions with Mick can actually pave the way for better and healthier thinking about one's self and life. To describe myself after the thoughtful sessions I had taken with Mick, I would consider myself as a happy, more powerful self controlled woman. A woman who actually managed with Mick's help and support to find peace and confidence after being haunted from the past sorrows and lately emotional crisis. I will strongly recommend this therapy to whoever wants to make a positive turning point in his/her life
Bird Phobia and Insomnia Testimonial
Since I had my hypnosis, I have felt so much better. When Mick McEvoy came to my house he was so down to earth. I soon felt relaxed and comfortable. I used to have a major problem with birds flying around me, also a big problem with sleeping. Now I can go shopping with my children and not be afraid of the pigeons. I used to have to walk around them out of sheer panic. It is also fantastic in being able to have a proper nights sleep. I feel so much better the next day. I am more alert and not yawning all the time. It is great not being dependant on sleeping tablets and to finally be in control of my life
Thank you so much
To be totally honest I was very sceptical but I did not tell Mick this. However I did approach this with an open mind and a positive attitude, which is most important. Once I had relaxed and got comfortable, I was at total ease and in complete control. I was a heavy smoker and very unfit, but now I don't think about cigarettes or smoking, I am at the gym at least 4 times a week and I feel really good, my confidence is increasing and I feel I can make decisions more positively. I'm so glad I took this session for a better healthier life and I would strongly recommend anyone to try it, but you have to be positive!
Many thanks Mick
Cocain Habit Testimonial
I am writing this 1 week on after seeing Mick McEvoy, I first started dabbling in cocaine twelve years ago, using on and off as a recreational drug
Over the last two years I've been taking cocaine more or less every day. I'd decided for a while I wanted to stop and tried several times, but as much as I wanted to I just couldn't. A friend of mine had recently been hypnotised to stop drinking alcohol and her husband had been hypnotised too for smoking cigarettes it worked for them both. It was something I really wanted to do so I decided I had nothing to lose
After meeting Mick for a consultation his warm friendly manner put me at ease immediately and gave me the confidence I needed to get rid of my awful habit/addiction. I felt 100% sure I was ready to do this
I'll never forget the morning I sat myself down in Mick's cosy chair, I felt excited to finally be free of this addiction - "Are you sure you want to do this?" Mick said, I'm ready .... (for anyone reading this all you need is to want to do something)
My session lasted 3 hours and consisted of hypnotherapy and NLP. At the end of the session I had no desire to do cocaine, not then, now or ever again
It's truly amazing what the unconscious mind can do
I feel great; I haven't done it and have no intention of doing so
To say thank you just doesn't seem or sound enough for what Mick has done for me. The cost and time I spent with you Mick to change my way of thinking and undoing a twelve year deadly habit is beyond words I can express
Mick, I know I can do it, thank you so very much for helping me help myself
I am a 56-year-old professional working for the University of Cambridge. I was involved in scientific research and then moved into Health and Safety.
I had a life long dependency for sweet things e.g. cake, chocolate, sometimes having 3 or 4 bars a day. I tried numerous methods in an effort to stop but their effect lasted a day or two then.
The method used by Mick is surprisingly simplistic but the results are dramatic.
Not only have I lost the dependency but also profound changes have taken place in every level of my life. I wasn't aware of the level of insecurity that existed in me, nor the effect it was having on my life, until now. I had thought myself to be confident, articulate and capable, as do those who know me. Now I feel different and at ease with myself for the first time in my life, not that I was conscious of being uncomfortable in my life. Difficult to describe what's different.
Having spent a lifetime of feeling OK, apart from this craving for sweet things, and then experiencing this amazing level of freedom, it is beyond words.
Mick's humane and sensitive approach is an experience in its self and I have no way of knowing how to pay the enormous debt I owe him because money isn't enough.
In 20 minutes he accomplished what I had been trying to accomplish for the last 15+ years.
You have to experience this for yourself as words just won't do. I believe you have nothing to lose but more importantly, if you're like me, there are gains to be had that you don't yet realise are possible.
I have written this 30 days after the session to prove to myself that it is lasting. Thank you Mick.
