Don Ross Success Stories

Quit Smoking Success

"I am 67 years old and have smoked a minimum of 1 pack of cigarettes per day for the past 53 years. I previously tried the patch---the gum---the pills---cold turkey, NOTHING seemed to work for me. With Don’s help, I have now been smoke/nicotine free for 6 weeks and do not miss it one bit. If I would have known that quitting would have been this easy, I would have done it years ago. Thanks Don for all your help." ~ Jim Churko, Sedona, AZ 

Prepare for Surgery

"I came to Don for help with overwhelming fear ad panic around an upcoming surgery, as well as other chronic health issues and severe anxiety.  Don patiently and compassionately helped me address these issues with hypnotherapy and then sent me home with recordings so I could listen as often as I needed to. I am now so happy to report that I just had the surgery and everything went remarkably well. I know hypnotherapy played a key role in helping me walk through my fears and in how quickly my body is healing. My Doctor is astounded that I have not even required any pain medication during the healing process.  I am deeply and wholeheartedly grateful for Don and I continue to listen to my recorded sessions daily." ~ Michelle

Slimming Down

Hello Don, I just want to tell you how pleased I am with my results for weight loss. The term ‘dieting’ has always been a term that has been a pain to me….it meant counting calories, or weighing food, or looking up points or something similar. I hated it and I never stuck with it. You have helped me to lose the weight without doing any of those things. I just eat good food and don’t even think about being deprived of anything. It has worked so well for me I think anyone who wants to drop pounds should definitely work with you. Thanks so much for helping me eat better and get slimmer!more
