Some clients report their success in excited, astonished tones - but not all of them. This is a fine example of an almost grumpy acknowledgement that, contrary to what the client actually expected, the hypnotherapy WORKED!
"Just a quick note to say thanks for your help. Have to say I was a bit skeptical about the process but nothing ventured.
"Whilst I can't say I will never have another diet coke I have not had one since our hypnosis session so that's probably the longest I've been off it in 20 odd years.
"Thanks again. Phil." June 3rd, 2016
Well Phil, I can't honestly say I'll never have another diet coke either but it does seem that conducting hypnotherapy sessions to help people stop drinking that foul brew has rubbed off on me and I've not touched anything made by the Coca Cola company for a very long time.
What Phil's fairly cautious, slightly downbeat message proves is that HYPNOTHERAPY WORKS! even when the client is pretty dubious about it and not the sort of person to believe in airy-fairy new-age nonsense such as hypnotherapy might appear to be, to some. People are often saying to me; "You've got to really BELIEVE in hypnotherapy, haven't you, for it to work?"
NO! It matters not a jot if you believe in it or expect it to work beforehand, indeed most clients seem to be pretty amazed by the results, so I think we can safely say that they did NOT expect it to work as well as it did, or as quickly.
All that really matters is that you really do want rid of the habit.
If you would like to quit drinking cola drinks or get rid of any problem like that, but you're a bit skeptical, don't let that put you off! As Phil said, "nothing ventured..."
