I was a cigarette smoker for 50 years...with little hope of ever getting over my addiction. I tried many ways to quit smoking, including but not limited to Nicorette gum, mental health therapy, having my partner hide my cigarettes, and then text me the location if I begged enough, along with working with several other hypnotherapists whose help proved only a temporary respite. And then I found Anthony Gitch & Excel Hypnosis. I must admit, I was a skeptic -- I couldn’t help but ask – how could I quit smoking in just one or two appointments when I had been trying to give up cigarettes for years? And yet, here I am, writing this review: Anthony was deeply committed to helping me reach my goals; he made me feel as though my success was his success. I have the sense that this is much more than a job for Anthony; instead of work, it is a 'passion' - meaning work that comes from the heart. He is an excellent listener; he listens intuitively with a deeper ear, ushing out the real issues that might drive someone to smoke (like me!). And the icing on the cake? Anthony's wonderful humor... Thanks, Anthony, for helping me e ortlessly reach my goal of a smoke-free life!
I can't believe how easy it was for me to lose the weight that had been plaguing me my whole life. Anthony not only taught me a new way to look at my diet but a new way to approach life. I no longer have cravings for unhealthy food and the thought of going back for seconds have been completely lost. I am amazed at how easy it has been be completely satisfied with a single serving.
I have spent my life feeling like I was not quite good enough, thin enough, pretty enough or strong enough. I wasn't really unhappy but I felt stuck in my thoughts and I began to think I was depressed. I went to my GP and he suggested antidepressants which really did not help. Then I met Anthony. My life has never been more different, more enjoyable and I certainly nave no doubt about my place in the world and what I have to offer. I also know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am worth anything and everything I want. I feel powerful and in charge. Thank you Anthony for everything!
I have been a heavy smoker for the last 30+ years and thought I would give hypnosis a go in an effort to quit. I hired Anthony in Dec 2020 for my first session and was pleasantly surprised at how personable and easy Anthony is to spend a couple of hours with. The session was actually enjoyable and I walked out of the session a non smoker! I just passed the 4 week mark without a cigarette. Truly a remarkable service and a great person to spend time with. I have already recommended Anthony to many of my friends. Thank you Anthony.
Anthony is a professional whose life experiences and knowledge allow him to integrate genuine empathy with no-nonsense redirection. This is not the typical sit on a couch crying about your past psychotherapy-and you should be grateful for that. As a former clinical therapist, I had struggled in finding someone to work with due to my own lack of faith in the system I worked in. CONTROL is not therapy, and it is not some magic trick. In order for the system to work, you as an individual must be completely willing to do the work, to surrender, and to continue to choose this process far beyond your brief sessions. Through working with Anthony and learning the CONTROL system, I was able to have a completely painless birth (and drive myself 2 hours during active labor), begin the recovery from an extremely hurtful and complicated abusive relationship, and learn and address toxic behavioral patterns of my own which had evolved from initial personality developments to address issues which no longer served me. I cannot recommend this system, or Anthony, enough. Working with him has been a catalyst of hope and change in my life, and I am forever grateful.
After my sessions with Anthony, I had a realization that put the issue I initially approached him with in a completely different light. Now I am able to be honest with myself at what is hindering my success (something else entirely), whereas before I was confused.
