How successful are you?

Very. …. I don’t put up a figure like “95% successful” because it is impossible to continually check and therefore the Trade Practices Act does not allow it. If you have been referred by someone you know who came here, so much the better. You know that it’s going to work! Much of my work comes through referrals; people who have been to see me tell other people about it, and so they make an appointment for themselves.

You lose Cravings Habits Breathlessness




“David I came to see you in January 2010 to stop smoking. The good news is I have not had one cigarette nor have I had any cravings … not one from the moment I left your house. I later had chemo for cancer of the liver which it was a success and then I completed a 200 km bike ride raising money for the Peter Mac Callum cancer center. I have signed up to do it again this year,. My health has gone from strength to strength and my skin is like brand new .. thank you for all you did for me .”


“I was a bit sceptical about using hypnosis to quit smoking, but being hypnotised was really enjoyable, very comfortable and relaxing! “I had been smoking a pack a day for 25 years, I had tried to quit so many times before, nothing worked until my one time appointment with David Townsend. You made me feel very comfortable about the whole thing and you gave me the ability to quit that day and I am still smoke free for 5 weeks now. I just wish I had this done years ago. Also thank you for turning my negatives thoughts and way of thinking into positive ones! I can’t thank you enough, you truly saved my life.”


Hello, David, I want let you know that, almost two and a half years since you treated me – a smoker for 53 years – I am still a NON-smoker. I think of you with gratitude, very often.


Being one of the world’s least motivated people, I was initially very cynical about the prospect of hypnosis. Desperation to give up smoking gave me the much needed prod to at last give it a go. I genuinely count my blessings every day that now I am a non-smoker and give thanks for the benefits to my health and finances.


I have tried desperately to quit smoking in the past but with no success. My smoking started at the age of 13 and lasted for approximately 55 years and I was using no less that 60 cigarettes per day. This addiction was severely affecting my health, mind, relationships, and very much financially! I met David Townsend under different circumstances and the conversation led to my smoking and failed intentions to quit. The rest is history.


It’s almost been two years since the day I quit smoking thanks to a hypnotherapy session with you and I want to thank you for changing my life. I never would have believed quitting was possible before hypnosis. I walked into your office a smoker and left free of my addiction. I am a non-smoker, I am in control and this was the best investment I will ever make in my life. Thank you!
