What People Are Saying About Ted

Dear Ted, Thank you so much for your help in giving me the tools to quit smoking- like most I have quit hundreds of times, but with your program I believe I will always be a permanent non-smoker. I tried hypnosis before for this and was not successful, your professionalism was very different than my previous experience, your knowledge of the struggles associated with quitting was obvious on the first visit- I followed your program as you laid it out and it made it much easier than expected. Again, thank you so much, and continued success on your mission to empower individuals like myself to succeed in life.
J. Yarmolovich

Most of my life has been spent in self-hatred, fear, and sadness. Ted has helped me see beyond what I have always known. Ted is an excellent hypnotherapist and has also been a great teacher and mentor in helping me face my fears. I have grown so much from our work together.Thank you Ted for helping me see that the possibility of living a free and peaceful life does exist. I can see that it is right in front of me. All I need to do is declare it powerfully. Thank you Ted for always believing in me.

Dear Ted, I can’t thank you enough! After nearly twenty years of anxiety and panic attacks, I thought my world was destined to remain “small”. You helped me see that there is life without anxiety. Thank you.
