Rave Reviews of Dan’s Work from Clients and Yelp

“Dan Ross helped me quick smoking in one session. To give you an idea of how serious of a smoker I was, I am 28 now and have been smoking since I was about 13. I smoked to bond with family, I smoked before I ate and after. I smoked to drive. I smoked when I arrived. I smoked after the movie and before. When trying to quit, I was buying packs and throwing them away and then buying them again. I decided that I was going to try everything to quit smoking. I tried the patch, the gum, cinnamon sticks, breathing techniques, acupuncture, lozenges, vape, meditation, cold turkey and just about anything else. You name it I tried it. I only briefly heard about hypnosis as a cure for smoking. I saw Dan once and we talked about my smoking. We got down to what he believed to be the possible root to my addiction. When I left I smoked. I smoked the next day after. And for whatever reason I woke up on a Monday and just stopped smoking. I was tired of it more so then ever after having worked with Dan. I did feel the withdraws. I did feel myself having to quit. There was just something that Dan did that made it easier for me. He helped me frame it as something I could do. And I did it all by myself. Cold turkey. Today people I know who still smoke think I have this tremendous will power. They think I am this well-rounded, incredible person who just makes decisions and sticks with them. Which is not really true. I am just a regular person, who happened to Yelp Dan Ross one day and give him a try. I was so blown away by the results with smoking I continue to see Dan almost weekly to improve my career, relationships and life overall. Thanks Dan!” Paul L., CA (A review from Yelp)

“When I found myself in the midst of a health and related anxiety crisis I came to realize that I needed something beyond the medical community to help me (although the medical community has indeed been very helpful, I also needed something more). I had been referred to a psychologist who turned out to be going on vacation. Feeling desperate and not wanting to wait for that person, I looked on the internet for a hypnotherapist. Dan (who I had never heard of) came right up on my search. All I had to do was read his statement of purpose and see his picture and I knew I needed to contact him. And I have never had a backward glance. I feel like he came to me from the cosmos as a mystical gift and that I was led to him. Working with Dan has opened new realms of possibility to me as well as confirming some things that I already knew. What he actually does in a session is hard to explain, but it is very powerful. By the end of the first session, I was feeling a sense of, “Wow! That was amazing, and exactly what I needed.” Each session has built upon the last, becoming more and more profound and insightful and life changing. He has always known how to creatively address my needs of the moment and transform despair and fear into vision and trust. When I found Dan, my life had fallen apart. Since I have started working with him, I have come much further in my recovery than I could have ever imagined. I am driving again, seeing friends and family again, and getting back to doing the activities I love again. I have gotten my life back! The healing and expanded vision and life enhancement that I have experienced from working with Dan have profoundly changed my life in positive ways that are far beyond the telling of it.” -Anne C., CA

“Dan has been a powerful ally and guide in assisting me to uncoil my family patterns that no longer serve me, and that I was repeating. We worked on my relationship to my family and some of the women who are influential in my life. I see my family working things out now on their own, I do not take responsibility for what is theirs to handle. I can see daily all these gifts that I have within me, and this I take into my day to day life, changing how I see the world and how the world is seeing me.” -Lynetta D., CA

“Before I met Dan, I was feeling overwhelmed in my life, especially regarding recent events related to my mom’s death and the triggers that brought up for me. Through several sessions Dan walked me through alternate ways of thinking and being. Now I am ready to focus myself on the positive aspects of my relationships and have ways of looking at life that are much more beneficial. Dan used humor and “outside the box” thinking to help me focus and change my thinking. Many thanks!” -M. Kirk, CA

“I just completed three sessions with Dan Ross and before I saw him I could not sleep through the night. I was filled with anxieties about the direction of my life and my future and my career. After just 3 sessions I have been able to sleep through the night and my faith in the future is so much higher than when I started. My confidence is so much higher than before I saw Dan. I can’t say enough about Dan, and his techniques are great; they are really effective. I highly recommend you see him.”-Jerris M., CA

“I had a breakthrough working with Dan during my very first session. I have to say Dan makes working on “stuff” fun! He said he would and I was thinking “yeah right”, but once we got into clearing some heavy issues, it was absolutely painless, and, I was laughing during the process. He said I would laugh and sure enough I was laughing. How does it get better than this? I encourage everyone to work with Dan for a better life and to reach new levels of happiness and you will find out. He is exceptional at what he does!” -Teri A., CA

Maggie S.
, Sausalito, CA

“Robert spends a lot of time during the initial screening to make sure that hypnosis is a good fit. He also cares a lot about his clients and went above and beyond what I expected. I’ve lost 26lbs and it’s so easy. I go in for my sessions weekly and it’s very relaxing. I don’t think about food as much and I also am exercising more. I feel so much healthier too.”
Kathy K.
, Campbell, CA

“Robert has given me the tools that I need to succeed. On top of the weekly sessions with Robert he gave me CD’s that I could take home and listen to when I wasn’t with Robert. So far I’ve lost 18 lbs and I couldn’t be happier. I was nervous at first but Robert definitely helped me to feel comfortable and was just wonderful.”
Laurel S.
, Santa Clara, CA

“5 years smoke free after 18 dedicated years of smoking a pack a day. I cant wait to take my next vacation with the money I have saved from eating properly and not smoking. Both these programs are worth every penny they cost. The freedom I have gained by participating is priceless. Thank you Robert!”
Mark E.
, San Jose, CA

“I came to the BAHC because I was intrigued by the idea of learning how to think like a thin person. By the end of my 8th session (10 weeks) I’ve lost about 18lbs which was a surprise because I don’t feel like I’m dieting or depriving myself at all!”
Sharon C.
, Santa Clara, CA

“So I have been really happy since I decided to go to bay area hypnosis. In the last 6 months I lost 57 pounds. The hypnosis helped to stop the cravings and allowed me to change the way I look at food. I now make food decisions based on how food will make me feel instead of how it tastes.”
Paul J.
, San Francisco, CA

“I smoked over two packs a day and I do not go for the normal mind over body or new age BS so many people try to sell. I’ll be honest I did not think it was going to work. But someone else paid for me to go, what did I have to lose? well I lost a nasty habit of over 20 years and gained a better quality of life.”
, Guerneville, CA

“I am a Non-Smoker now, thanks to Bay Area Hypnosis Center! Never believe this could be possible! I LOVE LIFE NOW THAT I AM NOT A SLAVE TO CIGARETTES!!!!!”
Lani A.
, San Carlos, CA

“I had been a smoker for about 14 years. I had tried quitting many times before but I always seemed to go back to smoking. I was skeptical of hypnosis at first, but after speaking to Robert, my wife and I decided to give it a try. After the first session, I am very happy to say that I do not feel I will ever smoke cigarettes again.”
Tammy W.
, San Carlos, CA

“I’m surprised it really works! I’m exercising almost everyday without consciously thinking about it. I feel the pounds have been melting away without much effort. It’s a great program and I highly recommend it! I enjoyed working with Robert Harrison and I’m thankful for Bay Area Hypnosis.”
Anna W.
, San Carlos, CA

“As of today, I have lost a total of 50 pounds with the help of Bay Area Hypnosis Center. With the exercise I have incorporated into my life, my waist size is only 2 inches larger then when I was in high school! The system has been completely motivating and it’s doing exactly what I hoped for.”
Dave L.
, San Carlos, CA

“I am delighted at how EASY this has been and really feel that I have beaten this habit for life. CHEERS! Thanks to Robert Harrison!”
Sara S., 
San Carlos, CA

“I am glad I used the Bay Are Hypnosis Center to stop biting my nails because I am able to relax automatically as I unconsciously start becoming stressed. I am more content to be able to live in the present and not worry about the future or try to re-live the past.”
Erwin R.
, San Carlos, CA

“I was a smoker for 35 years. I quit the habit after the first session with Robert. The problem is completely painless. I have no craving for smoking at all.”
Cesar D.

“It opened my eyes to the truth about smoking. I had felt trapped for years as a smoker and for the first time I feel I have all the control to overcome any habit. In a way, I got my life back, not only my health but all the time and stress I put on myself as a smoker. Hypnosis made all of this possible for me. I strongly believe that with the change in perception it made quitting smoking enjoyable.”
Brandy B.

“My name is Jasmine; I have been smoking for about the past 5 years. Over the past couple of years, it’s been an everyday habit. Couple packs a day. I heard about Bay Area Hypnosis Center from TV commercials. I looked them up and watched some of the videos, read the testimonials and decided that it was something I could do, should do. So I checked it out and was semi smoke free after the first visit and was encouraged by that, that I really made it a commitment and have been smoke free since the firs session and I feel great. After the free consultation, I didn’t have the urge to smoke; I just smoked a few even without any feelings of want or craving for it, just to see if it was real. I didn’t want it, it didn’t have the same feel or pleasure from it. I wasn’t getting anything from it anymore. I finally feel free, like this is how I should have been living, not under a horrible cloud. It just really feels good, feels so real, it has been an easy, natural transition. Feels outstanding. It’s funny because I think everybody’s sort of preprogrammed to think, “Oh, I’m going to cluck like a chicken.” It was just so relaxing, the best massage or spa treatment you could ever have without doing that. You just feel so relaxed, so peaceful. I feel peaceful in a way that I have never felt before. It’s not intimidating or unnerving at all. Just relaxing. There is one side effect, and it is feeling so good that I’ve actually started jogging. So I think the side effect is better health and just feeling much better about your self all over.”
Jasmine B.

“My name is Mike. I have been a smoker for 32 years. I am now smoke free for the last 2 weeks with no desire whatsoever to smoke. Before hypnosis, I tried the Patch, Wellbrutin, counseling, group therapy and none of it worked obviously. My Fiancee and I came to Bay Area Hypnosis Center together and are both smoke free with no desire to smoke at all. Thanks to a Co – worker of mine who recommended Robert, So I could get this monkey off my back. Hypnosis feels like a great nap. It’s been easy to quit, except for a couple fleeting thoughts; I’ve had no desire to have a cigarette. No pull, haven’t been irritable, nothing. I can see myself smoke free for the rest of my life.”
Mike M.

“I started smoking when i was 13 years old. My Mom smoked at that time. My Dad had quit 10 years earlier, but started up again when I was 15. I quit several times over the years only to start up again. In November, 1996, my Dad was diagnosed with small cell carcinoma in his lungs. He died less than a month later. In February, 2011, my Mom was diagnosed with stage 4 oral cancer. Both cancers were a result of smoking. Surprisingly, neither of those diagnoses were enough to stop me from continuing to smoke. I was by my Mom’s side every step of the way through her treatment. To witness what she was going through was definitely one of the most painful experiences in my life. She endured 3 months of chemo followed by 7 weeks of daily radiation treatments. Due to complications, she was hospitalized 4 times. Still, I did not quit smoking. On January 6 2012, I took my mom to a follow up appointment with her oncologist. She was given a clean bill of health. That evening, my fiance, Mike, and i decided “It’s time for us to quit smoking.” We had talked several times before about using hypnosis to help us quit smoking. Mike had a co- worker who had used Bay Area Hypnosis Center to help him quit smoking and hadn’t had a cigarette in over 4 years. So we decided to give it a try. We both met Robert for our initial consultation. Robert has an amazing ability to put you at ease from the moment you meet. After our consultation, neither of us could wait for our first appointment and to start the process. Mike and I were both surprised at how easy it turned out to be to let go of the smoking habit. At the conclusion of our first appointment, we both felt excited, invigorated and ready to make more healthy changes to our lifestyles! We are both looking forward to our new, healthy lives! We have shared our experience with family and friends. The support and encouragement we have received has been overwhelming, wonderful and inspiring. Making the decision to come to Bay Area Hypnosis Center to quit smoking was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. Thank you Robert!!!”
Julie M.

“I was able to stop smoking without feeling the stress that I had experienced with the other quit smoking methods like the gum, group support, patches and meds. I’d tried them all – some with success – but all left me coping with some level of desire to smoke – and I always started smoking again. I am recommending Hypnosis to everyone who wants to quit.”
Mary K.

“It made me more aware of how my body handles stress. With this knowledge I can stop allowing stress to affect me physically. I no longer make projects for myself. I have slowed down. I breathe deeper. I feel more relaxed. My allergies are less (shorter duration.) looking for ways to slow down more.”

“I am finding a new way of living healthy and I am enjoying it! in the short weeks I have been on the program, I have lost 12 lbs but more importantly I had gained a new perspective on my health and an understanding of how to care for my body and mind! THANK YOU!”
Denise B.

“I was hesitant and walked out of Robert’s office thinking that nothing had changed. It has been 8 months since I smoked. WOW! Bay Area Hypnosis Center has changed my life into being a non smoker and it was more than worth it. If your ready to quit, let Robert help you do so. I did!!!”
Munish M.

“I felt confident almost immediately that I would succeed. Robert consistently reinforced my commitment and calmed my fears. He made me feel an inner confidence that my fears were inconsistent with my “real” self and desires. He gave me tools to reinforce – renewed feelings of gratitude. The health part was not as important to me (I’m 82) as other issues – mess- what I thought was need. He’s comforting, and consistent.”
Shirley D.

“I am extending my life, I’m free of when & where my next smoke will come, and most of all I believe I’m a non smoker. This program is alot easier then I first thought. It works. I’m a non smoker for the rest of my life.”

“I am exercising! Some in the morning and hour long walks in the evening. I feel energized about my control over my food and alcohol intake. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel – which I could not before. I know i’m on the right road.”

“I am smoke free! I no longer feel like a slave to smoking. The desire is gone and I can see benefits in less than two weeks. I am breathing better, I no longer smell of smoke and I know the rest of my life will be healthier and happier.”
Robert F.

“Within one week, I noticed less tension by becoming more aware of the signals which cause stress. Take a moment to breath and reflect.”

“After the 1st session, I noticed a major reduction in my drinking. Most amazingly, I didn’t miss it or constantly think about it or consider that I was depriving myself of anything great. Great help”
Barbara N.

“I feel more positive, better food choices, i’m thinking more before I act, I’m exercising every single day and liking it. And I feel more like myself”
Darleen A.

“I’ve been a nail biter for as long as I can remember. I’ve tried countless ways to stop, and nothing has worked. Nothing, that is, until I tried Hypnosis. After one session I no longer feel the need to bite my nails. I feel like this is a habit I have overcome and don’t need to worry about anymore. It’s a great feeling.”
Kimberly S.

“I was able to stop biting my finger nails, and am now finding that my everyday life is much easier and smooth. Now that I’ve stopped. I had chewed my fingers since I was a child as early as i could remember, I have bitten my nails. Now at 19, I am able to say I’ve stopped a life long bad habit.”
Fabio P.

“I do not feel “trapped” by cigarettes anymore. I never realized how much more freedom I have not planning my life around smoking. I have more time to get things done, I enjoy breathing fresh air, I feel more energized and healthier and I smell good!!”
Deena K.

“After a few attempts of trying to quit on my own to no avail, I had a major health scare and was told to quit smoking. After smoking 1 1/2 – 2 packs a day for approximately 35 years. Robert was able to help me and I quit smoking after our very first session. For those of you who may be skeptical (I was!!) This program really does work. I have no desire to smoke.”
Laurie M.

“IT WORKS! It is the first diet plan that ever worked for me. I never go hungry, I eat as much as I want as long as they are not filled with fat, sugar, or starch. Believe me, it works.”
Frank S.

“This was greatly affecting my life, getting worse every year. The first time I met Robert, I was sure he was the guy who could help me. I have since had almost no second thoughts of getting on an elevator or I am now able to sit in the backseat of a 2 door car. That feeling of being trapped was bad for me. Thank you so much for all your help. you have made my life for me a little easier everyday.”
David H.

“Choosing the right combination of foods seem to be easier. All choices feel natural. The visual effects make it easy. I’m at week 6 and down 10 lbs.”

“It saved my life and marriage, I feel healthier, have a positive attitude, sleep better, enjoy life. After trying many other Stop Smoking methods and failing, I’m glad to have people like Robert and his staff in this world who care so much about others. Thank you!!”

“BEST decision I’ve ever made hands down!!! My mom started on the weight loss program with Robert and introduced me to it… Not only have the lbs. been melting away; I feel great, healthy, and energized. This program has transformed my life in many ways.”
