It was definitely a pleasure meeting you! Since our meeting (three months ago), I have not had any cravings nor desires to smoke! I feel much better and my blood pressure is down significantly. I also have been eating healthier and started to work out!

"Hi Connie,

I want to share with you that I have not been smoking for over 5 weeks now! The onsite sessions coupled with your no smoking cd really has allowed me to finally take control and be proud of myself for being able to do what I have wanted to do...stop smoking!!

I am so grateful for your help! Thank You"

     -- Cal Ihler, Woodinville, WA

Cal told us more, with a 2-month follow up report:


Some people quit in one session.  Some people, it takes a little longer for the mind to process the changes.  Bottom line:  changes happen.  Success happens. 

Here's more success stories: 

"Over the 20 + years of being a smoker, I have made several attempts and used a variety of methods to try and quit.... all unsustainable.  I was always thinking about smoking or not smoking which made the battle to quit miserable and in the end I'd go back and have 'just one more'.

I was desperate for a solution to quit permanently as I was sick and tired of being a 'prisoner' to the habit.  I had heard that hypnosis had helped many people so I started to research my options in the area when I found Connie Brannan.  Connie is not only a hypnotherapist she is also certified in neuro-linguistic programming (N.L.P. - she is far better at explaining what this is).

She is very professional and very good at what she does.  Connie is a warm, positive, and uplifting person.  She is also a success story of hypnosis herself.  Her office environment was also very comfortable and I felt very relaxed and trusted her immediately to 'talk to my sub-conscious'.

I walked out of that office with absolutely zero desire to smoke.  I got in my car, which has always been my private smoking chamber, and drove myself home wondering when the urge would hit me.  It didn't.  In fact after one session, it hasn't.  Unbelievably, I have no desire to smoke at all and in addition, my association with being a smoker has changed.  It doesn't even feel like I was ever a smoker.

I have so much energy!  It has been 5 weeks since that session and not a single cigarette or more importantly a desire for a cigarette.  I am amazed!! I wish I would have found Connie a long time ago!

If you are a smoker and have battled with trying to quit, see Connie.  She is awesome and has changed my life!  It was instant, it was painless, and it was successful!!"

Sincerely, Kim J., the Seattle non-smoker

Laurie Adams of SeaTac, WA broke a 40 year smoking habit in two sessions two years ago, and now, reports her ongoing success.  Here is another video testimonial.  As she says:  "This is the way to go!"

"The urge to smoke is gone!...Two thumbs up for using hypnosis to quit smoking. Connie helped me quit a few months ago, and now I don’t think of myself as an ex-smoker. Most of the time I don’t even remember that I ever smoked at all!

     -- Nancy C., Bellevue, WA. 

"I've been feeling really great and have not smoked since our session back in January."

-- Ray Meek, Seattle area

"Hi Connie, Alan the former smoker here!  Well, not very surprisingly I am now a tobacco free person.  On the 1st of April (the day I had marked in my time line) I woke up realizing that I had been dreaming and what I was dreaming was your voice doing an intervention.  Cool huh.  Just thought you would like to know.

     --Alan A., Lynnwood

"It's been 7 days since my first session with you, and I haven't touched a cigarette!  Thanks for your help.  I feel great and less stressed.  My lungs feel younger!"

       --John W., Bellevue, WA

And a follow up report:

"Hi, Connie, I just wanted to share news with you that it is almost a month since I smoked my last one.  I feel so clean, energized, refined and all good stuff I dreamed of.  Thank you once again!"

        --John W., Bellevue, WA

And more:

"I'm going to tell you a bit about my success with Hypnosis.  I was a smoker.  I smoked about a pack a day at the worst days.  I had coughs, and unhappy mornings when I 'had to have' my cigarette...Before meeting with Connie Brannan, I was struggling with not smoking.  After I walked out of her office, I didn't have to struggle anymore.  Now, THREE MONTHS later, I am still a proud, successful nonsmoker.  Not only was this treatment relaxing, I learned tools that were practical for me.  Whenever I had a craving, I applied her useful tools to my moment-to-moment cravings for what I once had.  I feel great, and I have no desire to smoke cigarettes.  Connie, you have no idea how much of a difference, and how many years you helped add on to my life.  Many, many thanks!

--Samantha Woolsey, Kirkland, WA

John O.  of Bellevue, WA, quit after one session.  His comment:  "You're good!"

John CRUSHED the Tobacco Habit – with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Stop Smoking with Seattle's Best Hypnotherapists - Mindworks Hypnosis.
John M. of Seattle crushed the smoking habit!

Hi, Hypno-Friends!

Another story. John came into my office the other day. He was READY to quit smoking. I mean, really ready. He wanted to. For some reason, he just couldn’t. Until he could. Hypnosis is a tool to sharpen focus, motivation, and bring resourcefulness. TO ANYTHING! It brought John the resourcefulness to quit smoking.

We had a Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy session. It went fantastically well. Now: John is done with cigarettes. He was so sure, he pulled out his last pack of cigarettes and gave them to me. (I stick them in my desk and use them for testing purposes.) Then he said: “Wait. No. I want to CRUSH them. I want to take the pack in my hand and I want to crush it.” I gave them back, and he did. Squeeze/crush that pack into oblivion. Then he tossed it into the trash can. We both photographed the event! :)   Yay, John!

Lots of people want to know: Does hypnosis work? Do the positive changes last? Yes, and yes! Here is a another testimonial of success for Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

John M. of Seattle came into my office in July and had a single session of Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy ™. At that time, he felt so sure he was done with smoking, he literally crushed the cigarettes he had. Smooshed the pack in his fist. That was his last pack. We documented it:

John crushed the smoking habit!

Now, three months later, I have John’s follow up report. It’s good news:

“Hi Connie,

It was definitely a pleasure meeting you! Since our meeting, I have not had any cravings nor desires to smoke! I feel much better and my blood pressure is down significantly. I also have been eating healthier and started to work out!

I definitely will send any friends over to you. Thank you for helping me!”

— John M. of Seattle, Washington

Yes, it lasts. The positive changes last. For John, it’s three months now–WITHOUT CRAVINGS. When you upgrade a program (new way of thinking and feeling) in your mind, it stays upgraded. And your behaviors in the world change. There’s no going back to cigarettes for John. Why would he? He’s a nonsmoker!! That’s how he sees himself, and that’s who he is. A healthy person taking care of himself. Yay, John!

If you need to dump the tobacco habit, well, it’s so much easier than you think.

Warm Regards,
