I was in my sixties and had smoked for more years than I cared to remember.  For years I had tried to give up smoking:

I tried every tablet, gum, patch and fake cigarette on the market, all to no avail.


In desperation, and as a last resort, I visited Mary.  I had no confidence at all that hypnotherapy would help me.

I had always been very resistant to this idea and very adamant that it would never work for me

because I would  actively oppose it.


However, I spent a very peaceful hour with Mary – that was almost four years ago - and I’ve not had a

cigarette since.  Nobody is more amazed than me and I will always be grateful to Mary.
