Hi, It's been 3 months now and going really well, a friends wife is coming to see you on the weekend, I've passed your details to alot of people wanting to give up the fags - knowing that you will be able to help them like you helped me. Thank you again.
Kerry, Brisbane, April 2020
I am doing amazingly since I met you. I haven’t touched one cigarette. I can’t believe it to be honest.
I found it hard at the beginning, more of the routine but now I rarely think about having one. I can honestly say I don’t believe I will ever touch a cigarette again.
Thank you for your email and checking in with me.
Jenny, Brisbane, April 2020
How are you keeping? Apologies I am just getting to email you back now.
I am happy to say that I most likely will not need to take advantage of the ‘follow-up’ session – thank you! As we spoke of immediately after your treatment, the first couple of weeks were more comfortable than I anticipated; however, still required a small amount of self-discipline. Thereafter, have not really had any inclination to drift backward to smoking at all and very rarely find any thoughts of smoking, even when in a smoking environment (very rare in the past two weeks!). I have also been able to largely avoid the inevitable weight gain due to distraction snacking ( your treatment made that unnecessary!) and metabolic adjustment (daily home-gym workouts and aerobic exercise – getting fit again!).
Jenny, Brisbane, April 2020
So, I recall at our session I rather smugly declared myself a sceptic of treatment. Seems I need to eat humble pie and say ‘many thanks’ for your SUCCESSFUL treatment and support. Add another non-smoker to your record.
Jerry Brisbane, April 2020
Hi Ann-Marie, Everything is going just as you said and I want to say an enormous thank you, I cannot believe that I am a month and two days into this and I am so happy that I have made it this far. Thank-you from the bottom of my heart.
Kim Gold Coast, March 2020
I hope you are well. I know it's not officially 7 days until 11am tomorrow but wanted to let you know I've made it this far....Thank you so much! I can tell you right now...I wouldn't have made it this far without your help. Even with your help..I found it a bit of a struggle the first 3 days and occupied myself eating....lol. I feel a lot more settled now but no doubt I will continue to hear that suggestive little voice for a while yet. It was a real pleasure to meet you and I can't t hank you enough!
Sally, Brisbane, March 2020
1 month smoke-free today! Thankyou Ann-Marie
Kurt, Gold Coast, March 2020
Doing good Ann-Marie. Haven't touched a smoke since our appointment. Thankyou, its been over 2 weeks now
Chris, Gold Coast, February 2020
Ann-Marie, I just wanted to let you know, still smokefree!! Eaten enough mentos for a lifetime though :)
I feel a lot stronger about it this time. I am at work and getting yelled at to do all sorts of things at once. When I spoke up and said I can only do one thing at a time. The response was, "Well go and have a cigarette then if you're going to be bitchy!"
But I bit my tongue and did NOT go and have one!! Thank you!!
Carissa, Gold Coast, February 2020
Hi Ann-Marie, I just wanted to send an email to say thanks again for the session on the 01st February.
My mindset has totally changed about smoking and i am so confident that i given up for life,

"Just letting you know that I am STILL A NON-SMOKER!!!!!! I can't believe how well I have adapted to not smoking. I don't bother about rushing for my coffee in the morning and sitting outside having it. Instead I go down for breakfast just before I leave. I am also drinking a lot less wine too. I certainly do have the occasional craving but they last about 10 seconds. I can't wait to get fit and get all the gunk out of my lungs, Thanks soooooo much"
Janine S, Gold Coast October 2018

Richard H, Brisbane June 2018
Hi Ann-Marie I have been meaning to message you and as you can imagine life is busy. I started smoking around 35 years ago when it was cool and have now been smoke free since 19th May 2016, on that day I saw you in Brisbane being as sceptical as everyone is, thinking yeah yeah this isn’t going to work on me. Little did I know after our chat that I was extremely suggestible and it worked so well I haven’t touched a cigarette since and can’t stand the smell. I would highly recommend this service for anybody wanting to quit. Thanks so much!!!!!"
Cheryl H, Brisbane June 2018
"Best $290 I had ever spent. My last smoke was 14 months ago and I feel great, and so does my bank balance"

"Good Morning Ann-Marie. My sister and I came to see you in early November and I just wanted to let you know that we have both been very successful in quitting. I have recently had my teeth done and I'm feeling fantastic. Thank-you very much for your program and your genuine nature. You are a lovely lady and I appreciate your help. I know that I could not have succeeded on my own, and you deserve the credit. THANK YOU".
Jodi B, Gold Coast, Nov 2017
"Not smoking is going well :-) I don't want one and other people smoking doesn't bother me. Thank you"
Margaret C, Brisbane, November 2017
"I smoked for 30yrs and I've had one session with Anne-Marie it will be 7weeks this coming Saturday and i feel like i have never smoked i have no interest in it all i was a sceptic about this but it realy works. THANKYOU Anne-Marie you have turned my life around"
-Brett W, Brisbane, September 2017
"I successfully quit smoking after one session with Ann-Marie. For the last 13 years I smoked a packet a day, I have now gone over two weeks without a cigarette. After the session I still thought about smoking, but it was much easier to push these thoughts to the back of my mind. I found myself thinking about smoking less and less, and now I don't think about them at all. Hypnotherapy wasn't a magic wand; quitting still required some will power but it certainly gave me the boost I needed to be successful this time.
I'm now a happy (and somewhat richer) non-smoker. I definitely recommend Ann-Marie's approach, it is very gentle and it certainly works."
- Shelley, F, Gold Coast, September, 2017.
" Ann-Marie, you treated me nearly 12 months ago, 27th Oct 2016 and I haven't had a cigarette since that day. I've been meaning to contact you for ages to sincerely thank you. I've told a lot of people how and where I did it , of course not all take action straight away,but that's ok, when they are ready they will. You may remember L and T, T being a good friend of mine and J my wife's work mate just recently saw you and I believe she is still doing well. I'm totally over the moon about the success of this and my wife and I still can’t believe that I've stopped. I look at smokers now and feel sorry for them as they have to go to further extremes to smoke now. Also I can hear them coming with the cough and going past with the smell. Again from the bottom of my heart thank you."
- Brett D, Brisbane, September, 2017
"Best assistance in giving up the smokes. This clinic helped my partner and I. Great Hypnotherapist, highly recommend"
- Shelley S, Brisbane, July, 2017
"I started smoking at 13 behind the ballet hall, thinking that we were all too cool.
After a number of failed attempts to stop smoking over the years, finally at age 47 I thought I would give it another go. Not only was it costing me a small fortune at $35 per day that is over $200 per week and more than $10,000 per annum. It is no longer socially acceptable in Australia and more and more I was the only smoker and outcast.
I wanted to start to get fit and healthy in 2017 and knew that I didn’t have the will power to go cold turkey or to use the patches and other pharmaceutical products.
After a google search I researched Hypnosis and whether or not it was successful or not.
The session took approximately 1.5 hours and felt like 5 minutes. I was sceptical and in two minds about it and left there thinking that I may have just blown my money as I didn’t feel any different… was I supposed to?
The next 3 days weren’t easy, but they certainly weren’t as difficult as they had been before. Day 3 was my hardest and my mind struggled with it as I fought the demons in my head (there was still no physical withdrawal symptoms though). By day 4 it was getting easier and now I am 6 months down the track I rarely think about them. Of coarse they come into my mind from time to time and it’s funny because I still find it hard to believe that I have actually quit and can’t stand the smell of it if I am in a public place, I can assure you that I never would have thought that would be the case for me. The great news is, I am off to Italy for a holiday in August with the money I’ve saved.
Don’t hesitate, pick up the phone and just do it, it actually works with Ann-Marie"
- Amanda B, Brisbane, June, 2017
"A big thank you for helping me to stop smoking. I meant to email you ages ago as I gave up in early 2016 after seeing you (Ann-Marie) in Brisbane. I had tried patches, gum, sprays, cold turkey and god knows what else. The longest I have ever gone with out a cigarette prior to our hypnosis session was a week...I walked in a sceptic, which some how you picked up on...and I haven't had a cigarette since. Sure I had to put in a bit of work myself, but this was by far the easiest attempt I've had...and I am 100% positive that I will never go near them again"
- Chris H, Brisbane, March, 2017
"I stopped smoking by going to this clinic, and trust me I struggled for years to stop. I've tried everything. I went there a heavy smoker and walked out a non-smoker. I don't crave, theres no self tap to stay off of them, I simply live a life now unchained to my old addiction"
- Tracey G, Gold Coast March 2017
"1 year today I am celebrating being a non-smoker. I walked in a heavy smoker and walked out a non-smoker. It is the best thing I have could have done and wish I could have done so years ago. Painless and so effective, just go for it. Thanks again"
- Susan C, Gold Coast, March, 2017
"Hi Ann-Marie, Thanks again for my session last week. I found the whole process - from initial call - to be professional and inspiring. I've been thrilled with the result as I've transitioned immediately into being a non-smoker. I feel absaloutely great and have already recommended your service to my friends"
- Rachel S, Gold Coast, Feb, 2017
"Absolutely recommend. This method is the only way that's helped me stop smoking"
- Tracey G, Gold Coast, Jan, 2017
“Hi Ann-Marie, I ‘ve been a smoker since the age of 13 back in the 1970s with personal stresses and diagnosed depression over more recent years. My scepticism of using hypnosis to quit smoking was high to say the least. Numerous other attempts had failed IE: patches, gum and cold turkey all lasted only a very short time. Since meeting you and utilising your services I am now cigarette free for nearly 2 months. There are the occasional cravings but they quickly pass. Though awake / alert through our sessions the message must have gotten through. The thought of having a cigarette and furthermore buying a packet now seems like it would be a really stupid act. I am now 55 years old and a Non – smoker.
– Bruce, Brisbane, Jan, 2017
" 10 weeks tomorrow ciggi free :-) "
- Joyce, Gold Coast 2016
“I’m up to 2 months without a smoke!! Thank you so much Ann-Marie!! You are amazing. We smashed it!! So grateful..have already saved over $1,500”.
– Sally, Brisbane, 2016
“If you are considering hypnotherapy to stop smoking, you must see Ann-Marie. After smoking for more than 30 years I walked out a non-smoker and haven’t looked back. Ann-Marie really cares about people and it showed throughout my session
Thankyou Ann-Marie, you have changed my families life”.
– Veronica, Brisbane, 2016
“I am writing to thankyou for your session which helped me stop smoking. I was smoking 50 per day and I have tried many different ways of stopping in the past, this is the easiest and most effective by far.
I have never considered having a cigarette since your session with me. Also I feel cleaner, my breathing is much better and I feel better in general.
Once again thanks for helping me”.
– Ross, Gold Coast, 2016
“I’m not sure how it worked Ann-Marie but it did…..6 months smoke free, and I don’t even think about them”.
– Jen, the non smoker Gold Coast, 2016
“Thank you for not giving up on me!!! I saw you in January 2016 at Coorparoo, and did great for nearly 3 months....then one stupid night (with a couple of wines) I chose to have just one....I reluctantly called Ann-Marie, with my tail between my legs for another appointment....and she didn't make me feel bad at all....She got me in the following week, I expected to pay and she wouldn't take any money...Great service....2 of my friends have also stopped smoking after they went there”.
– Donna Brisbane, 2016
