“Indy Hypnosis, I have gone from a Size 48 pant down to a Size 40 in only 7 weeks! My blood pressure was 198/103 and it is now 117/80. I am sleeping better as well. My wife used to wake me up in the middle of the night because she said I would stop breathing. Now we both sleep through the night, which makes everything so much better!”  Stephen Powell

“My appetite decreased and I lost 20 pounds in three weeks!” Michael Ryan

Thank you for helping me become a new me! I started in the middle of June and by the middle of October I had lost more than 40 pounds. Not only did I drop the weight, but I also lost years off my appearance. Portion control has always been my biggest problem. When I sit down to a meal now I am very conscious of what and how much I eat. I enjoy my greens and veggies, choose my meats, and stay away from the starches – and I don’t miss them. Sweets were another one of my biggest hang-ups, but my cravings have disappeared. I have a taste now and then, but now I have the will power to push myself away. I’m having a great time trying on new pieces of clothing and I don’t have to shorten my slacks anymore! I still have a ways to go, but I realize that the changes that I have made in my eating habits are going to be for the rest of my life!” Gretel Bondi

I have lost 80 pounds in a year using hypnosis!” Harold Spencer

I can’t believe how wonderful and refreshed I feel. I am more in control of my life. I no longer have excuses for what I can’t do; I focus on what I can do. I feel like I have a reason to wake-up instead of lying in bed and dreading the day. I can’t wait to move forward with my life!” Cindy Jansky

“With hypnosis I feel more in control of my eating. I no longer binge and have fewer urges to snack at night.” Maria McCay

I have so much energy and feel so good. Hypnosis made things weightless and effortless. I no longer experience hunger pains!” Cynthia Bergstrom

I lost 29 pounds, the majority of it the first two and a half months! I look great, I feel great and I believe in myself! I still listen to Tim’s CD’s when I need an extra boost. I believe in Tim Shurr and the confidence he instilled in me.” Diane Page

“When I hit 305 pounds, I knew I had a problem. I had to get this weight off, I was tired all the time, hated the way I felt, and my doctor told me ‘lose weight or you’re asking for a heart attack.’  I heard about Indy Hypnosis on the radio for years but I was skeptical. Yet, I knew this weight was wrecking my health, so I made the call. Now I’m happy to say that since that call a few months back, I lost 42 pounds and am still losing. This program works. It was fun and the results are real. I heard other people say hypnosis works, and now I’m one of the them! This is your way out of the frustration and pain, It’s helped me and it can help you too. Call now, you’ll be glad you did.”  Rick Patton.

“I have struggled with weight my whole life. I have tried many different diets with some success, but always gained all the weight back. I never dealt with my feelings before about food or what triggers me to eat and make bad food choices.  What is different about this program is I have discovered that I do have emotional triggers that do cause me to eat.  This has been a learning experience for me because no other diet program has ever helped me with this issue. My mood about life has changed along with my eating habits. I am happier, less stressed, and in control. I have dropped the bad habit of soda and watching T.V. while eating dinner, and it was so easy to stop I can’t believe I could do it, but I did!” Wendy Brougher

After 5 months I am at my goal weight and am  confident in my ability to maintain this. I have learned much about myself thru using the CDs;  Navigating my way around the barriers and laying down the struggles with food and self-image that have been my sidekicks for so long. I feel free of these; what a great weight off me in so many ways.” Beth Chisholm.

I visited Indy Hypnosis as an overweight over 50 female that was having a hard time losing weight and was gaining weight year after year. After doing the Indy Hypnosis program I’ve lost 26 pounds and have kept it off. It was so easy. I now exercise 5 to 6 days a week without thinking about it and I eat less. I never actually dieted; just naturally now eat less. This is an easy system for weight loss and exercise motivation.” Carol Lockhat

“I started hypnosis as a skeptic, but I needed to try something different. Diets worked for a short time but didn’t last, I would lose weight but keep gaining it back. Now after going through the hypnosis program I am losing weight and exercising on a regular basis. I have a new lifestyle that I love and am feeling better every day. I really appreciate what Tim and his team have done for me and look forward to keeping this new lifestyle for years to come.”  Phillip Archer.

I have had chocolate cravings for as long as I can remember, but after a couple of sessions with Roger, I have had no cravings. It is a great feeling.” Helen Alexander.

“Since starting the weight loss program I have gone from a size 48 pant to a size 40. My blood pressure was 198/103 and is now 117/80. I am sleeping better. My wife used to wake me up in the middle of the night because I wasn’t breathing, now we both sleep through the night and today was my seventh session with Indy Hypnosis.” Stephen Powell

“After my first time with your program I have lost 32 pounds but most of all my diabetes is under control. No meds for 2 months, only one month after starting your program.” Erma Holmes

“I’ve always had a problem with my weight. I stayed at 285 pounds for years. I finally got my control back and am eating smartly and I am now down to 232 pounds and I’m much healthier and enjoy exercising and walking without difficulties.  Also I cans see the golf ball better. I enjoy eating right and don’t have any desires to overeat. I’ve gone from a tight 42 inch pant to a 38 inch pant and feel great. I’ve got my confidence back in everything I do. And I enjoy my grandkids more because I can keep up with them.  This program has turned my life around to the better. I’ve now learned to live and eat right.” Daniel Kritsch

“After my first session with Tim, I stopped at the grocery store. I bought fruits and vegetables, cases of water and other healthy foods. I went from drinking 8 to 10 diet sodas a day to drinking O. I did not crave soda or miss it at all. In just under a month I have lost 41 pounds.” Robert Koch.

“I have only been with Tim Shurr for three weeks and I am so pleased with my results. I have been heavy all my life and done every diet plan known to man. I have come to realize that my mind is the controlling factor in all of my struggles. I don’t need a scale, I visualize myself now this ideal figure. I have, thru Tim’s sessions, learned to choose healthy foods, exercise is coming easier to me and I am satisfied with meals that anyone who is in good shape would choose, and I do it with ease.  I’ve tried for 5 years to get these pounds and inches off – now it’s just easy and I’m not dieting, I don’t feel deprived! I’m relaxed and happy, I’ve lost 2 inches off my waist and 2 1/2 inches off my chest area.  I’m feeling really good about myself and that’s so important.” Katherine Boone

“Hypnosis has been amazing!” Kathy Scheeringa

“This is my first experience with hypnosis and relaxation. In my first week I lost almost 10 pounds. I no longer crave pastries or junk food and have learned to avoid sweets. I look forward to my sessions each week!” Mike Royce

“ I have tried every weight loss program there is – weight watchers, Atkins, South Beach, fasting, etc. This is the BEST and EASIEST program I’ve tried! Eating correctly and exercising has become the most natural thing to do. I feel the best I have felt in years. More relaxed and confident and definitely less stressed! I’m looking forward to “gaining thin”. Thank you!” Christine Larr.

“Having been overweight most of my adult life, with medical problems, losing 17 pounds in 8 weeks and fixing my cholesterol feels great. Getting back into clothes I could not wear is exciting. Being down and depressed due to being overweight is becoming a thing of the past. With eating properly and drinking water more, it has helped me medically in more ways than just losing weight, I feel better and have improved my bloodwork numbers back into the normal range; something I thought was further down the road. I am not as stressed out as I was either, my coworkers have noticed the more positive attitude I have these days.” Robert Todd Smith.

I have lost 23 pounds and cut my insulin by 8 units in the morning and evening. I have taken 4 inches of my waist size and reduced shirt size to 2x from 3x. I can walk further and have more energy. All in all I feel great.” William Aimutis.

“I have noticed that having the extra support blended with these great tools allows for me to achieve my goals. I feel empowered and strong and excited to keep pushing forward and reach my goal. I am very happy that I took the opportunity to open my eyes to this kind of treatment and help! Everything has been so positive and fulfilling.” Kimberly Turner.

“ I came looking for a sense of inner calm and peace that I hoped would put me in a frame of mind opening the door to weight loss. I believe I have found what I was searching for. I no longer suffer from that “uneasy” feeling. Hypnosis has given me the inner calm I need to move forward toward sensible weight loss for the long term, A huge thank you to Tim Shurr as the facilitator!” Pam Davis.

“After years of dieting madness I accumulated so much knowledge of the rights and wrongs in dieting that my head felt as though it had been spinning around and ended up on backwards and unbalanced. The result = being unhappy and overweight. Somehow I knew I needed to fix the head before I could fix the body. Tim Shurr and Indy Hypnosis helped me tremendously by helping me to find peace within myself. I now feel confident and optimistic and my body is benefiting also as a result. I am losing weight and feeling healthier and happier every day. I look forward to an even brighter tomorrow.” Pam Palmer.

“I stopped drinking pop after the first visit. I Lost 15 pounds in about 5 weeks and cut out sweets.” James Miller.

“I have become much more relaxed, changed my diet and lost 20 pounds in 4 weeks. I am one third of the way to reaching my goal.” Alex Zacur.

“I have had a great experience so far at Indy Hypnosis. So far in just 8 weeks I have lost a total of 13 pounds and 10 inches off my body I thought eating correctly and exercising and just being motivated would be difficult, but with the help of Tim and his program it has been very easy. I look forward to even more success with losing weight!. Joanna Seina.

“After my first session with Tim, I began to want to be thin for the right reasons. I listened to my CDs everyday, and wanted to hurry to my next appointment. My exercise has gone from 2 to 3 times per week to 5 times in the first week. I am really looking forward to see what next week might bring.” Dorothy Kern.

“I came here very skeptical but after just my first session I was amazed at how my constant cravings for sweets had all stopped. So far I have lost 15 pounds and can’t wait to lose more with my new strengths.” Alice Abraham.

“Thank you Indy Hypnosis for helping me turn into a new Me! I started at Indy Hypnosis the middle of June and by the middle of October I have lost 40 plus pounds. With the help of Indy Hypnosis I’m sure the last 20 pounds will also disappear. Not only did I drop the weight, but I also lost years of age in my appearance. I have always been an active person and exercising at least four times a week is a must for me – it keeps my aging bones limber. Portion control has been my biggest problem. When I sit down to a meal now, I am very conscious of what and how much I eat. I enjoy my greens and veggies, choose my meats and stay away from the starches; and I don’t miss them.  Sweets were another one of my big hang-ups; but with the help of Indy Hypnosis, my cravings have disappeared. I will have a taste now and then, but now I have the willpower to push myself away, my subconscious tells me what’s good for me.  I’m having a great time trying on new clothing and I don’t have to shorten my slacks anymore, I am slowly but surely getting into the size that I belong in. I still have a little ways to go, but I realize that the changes that I have made in my eating habits are going to last the rest of my life.” Gretel Bond.

“Prior to hypnosis I struggled with self-confidence which was a direct reflection in terms of my eating habits. Through hypnosis I have found that I can do whatever it is if I put my mind to it and most importantly just believing in one thing, “myself”. I am a successful business woman who lacked success in my personal well being. I know I can do whatever it takes to make others happy, but now I am placing myself first in line. I have also been able to reduce stress in my life through this program which has made me a happier person. I am happy with the progress I have made so far and do recommend it to others as well.” Rita Harman.

“During the first week I felt I had my own coach with the CDs at home. They reinforced a new way of thinking about and old problem. I lost 4 pounds that week.” Terri Collins-Novak.

“ I did not know what to expect, but I was relaxed and enjoyed hypnosis. I lost 5 pounds the first week.” Diane Shift.

“I came to help me lose weight. I’ve lost 6 to 8 pounds in just a couple of weeks with little effort. I am realizing that the weight loss is a sign that I’m taking back control of my life. It’s not just about the weight loss – the control is coming into other aspects as well, resulting in more motivation to exercise and eat well, easier decision making, being able to de-stress myself in a natural way, being happier over all, putting more importance on “me”. Hypnosis is giving me back my inner strength. I look forward to the sessions and the recorded CDs.” – Deb Mauch

“I have tried every diet there is and have not succeeded to lose and keep the weight off. Through hypnosis I have been given the tools to lose the weight by eating healthy and exercising, which has been made very easy for me since I have been getting hypnotized.” Roberta Smalley.

“The sensation of hypnosis is amazingly calming and I look forward to the relaxation that each session has taught me to achieve. Since beginning I have a renewed sense of curiosity and I explore each idea without the nagging doubts. Before this process I would easily doubt myself or talk myself out of pursuing new ideas and since beginning the hypnosis I easily move out of a doubting stage and do whatever I want to do. I stopped doubting and second guessing myself. I have renewed confidence and trust my instincts.” Rita Lerner.

“This has been an unreal and amazing week! I turned down jellybeans and chocolate cake. I have never done this before. I have always eaten whatever I felt like eating and unfortunately I look it. But that is all changing now. I am eating so I have a tomorrow.” Kathy Sheeringa.

“I have had a wonderful and exciting experience with Indy Hypnosis and the weight loss program. I’ve tried many diets and exercise programs but nothing worked for me. I wasn’t sure that hypnosis was for me but I’m truly thankful that I took a chance and tried it. Not only does the program help me make good, healthy eating choices and motivate me to exercise on a daily basis but listening to the motivating CDs help me to feel calm. My job can be extremely stressful and listening to the CDs make me feel less stressed out. I keep a motivating CD and CD player in my briefcase so that I can listen during my lunch break if I am having a busy, stressful day.

I was addicted to eating pasta (macaroni and cheese) at least once a day (sometimes more) and the hypnosis and accompanying CDs have helped me to eat a much more healthy and balanced diet. I’ve never gone for more than five days without eating macaroni and cheese. Without eating pasta on a daily basis I’ve found that I have more energy and feel better. After six weeks in the program I’ve lost 12 pounds and have gone down one pant size. I know that as I continue I will be able to lose the additional weight that I want to firm up my body. This is a program that I will be able to use for the rest of my life.

Working with Tim has been an uplifting experience – he has so much energy and enthusiasm that he makes you want to succeed. Even if I’ve had a bad week, I know that I can’t change the past and I focus my energy on working to make the next week a great one. I’m always so energized after meeting with Tim.

My friend asked me if I thought it was worth my time and energy to participate in this hypnosis weight loss program and would I do it again. It is definitely worth my time and energy – I feel so much better about myself and I feel healthy. I also told her that I would do it again in an instant but I won’t have to because I’m gaining the skills that I need to enable me to reach and maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.

Thanks Tim for all of your help, encouragement and enthusiasm. I couldn’t have done this without you.” Marie Wilson.

“I have become more positive and have lost 21 pounds in the last 4 weeks. Most of all I have become more relaxed and have learned new eating habits. Sometimes my boyfriend was forced to listen to the CDs as well at bedtime (due to if he wanted to get to sleep for work) and he has lost 17 pounds. Tim Shurr has become a big part of my daily life and I hope to continue on the way to healthier eating habits, happiness and most of all a feeling of being at peace.” Mindi Fipett.

“I have recently succeeded in losing a combined total of 7.5 inches from what used to be the lazy, unhealthy, unhappy person I was before allowing Tim to help bring positive change to my life. I was never able to lose weight for various reasons including depression, low self-esteem, and pain from injuries. Tim has guided me into rearranging the patterns of my life and my days and together we have replaced the sad blob I was before with the new upbeat, energetic, hopeful person I wake up to be now. Even more so than the weight loss I value the positiveness that lifts me now. I allow myself a place of value in my house now – one that’s been gone for far too long.” Kathy Stanley.

“I have so much energy – weight loss is effortless, all positive, no hunger pains at all! Easy!! I feel so good.” Cynthia Bergstrom

“Appetite decreased – lost 20 pounds in 3 weeks.” Michael Ryan.

“I lost 80 pounds in a year using self-hypnosis. I started by just telling myself that I would lose weight and exercise more every night before I went to sleep. It just happened that my old favorite foods now just don’t taste good. I know that hypnosis works.” Harold Spenser.

“Out of desperation I saw the advertisement in the newspaper for a free screening session to see if I could be hypnotized, and decided to see what this form of alternative health program was all about. Somewhat apprehensive, I was told I could be helped, and so I signed up. There was such compassion and support from Tim Shurr, I was immediately put at ease and he was right…I was helped. The month long experience was all I could have asked for and more. I looked forward to our sessions, and each week I began feeling better and better. I would definitely recommend this to anyone searching for assitance with problems.” Bobbie Hanley.

“ I now see myself as a thin and slender woman, when I go out to eat and choose foods that a thin person would choose, when I am hungry between meals I drink water and that fills me up. During the day I visualize fat draining out of my body. When I’m tempted to eat fatty foods, I resist and choose a healthier food like fruit. I am more confident in my appearance and have gone down one size in clothing. The hypnosis programs I listen to twice a day at home reaffirm the sessions here. I am grateful to have met Tim and he knows what he is doing.” Susan Adrians

“I have to say that using hypnosis for weight loss was a great decision on my part – no counting, no measuring and no pills. This method is so natural that I wonder why more people don’t use it. The hypnosis makes the process so easy. It is natural to make the right choices for food and the right amounts of food. I have more energy and am more active – doing the exercises on a daily basis because it seems so natural. The weight just seems to drop off so fast. I truly wish I had done this many, many years ago.” Sharon Wilson.

“Tim’s hypnosis program has given me an inner calm that I did not have. I have been dealing with panic attacks for more than 10 years on and off. Hypnosis is helping me to learn relaxation and change my negative and fearful thoughts, which is the only real cause for panic and anxiety.” Kim Mullin.

“ My name is Anita and I was a Sugarholic! I ate doughnuts for breakfast, cookies after lunch and a something sweet for after dinner. I work in an elementary school where children bring goodies in for their birthday celebrations. There were as many as eight cupcakes on my desk at the end of a day. I told my co-workers I would take mine home for my children, but they rarely survived the car ride home, I was tired and my blood glucose level was beginning to concern my doctor. That was six weeks ago. Since I have begun hypnosis under Tim Shurr, I have quit the sugar habit. I still like something sweet, but my snacks are now fruit or yogurt. The best part is that I DON’T MISS IT! I thought that I would feel deprived and depressed, but instead I feel satisfied and encouraged. I have lost 15 pounds and now have the energy to exercise. I no longer have that afternoon slump and feel much better about myself!” Anita Griffith

“This has been a very rewarding experience for me. I only six weeks I lost 12 pounds. My energy level is much higher. I find I am more relaxed in my daily activities. Things that would normally stress me now just float by. I will continue to work with Tim on my goals and recommend his services highly.” Maryella Mullens

“I came to Tim because quit frankly I needed some help! Now I know a lot about the human body, how it reacts to certain foods, how to alkalize the body and get the PH factors right. I have been through the Mayo, Atkins, carb less and protein more diets but I just couldn’t stay the way and become thin. My wife came to Tim and after 2 years was still thin so after a number of failed attempts she suggested Tim could help me with my will power. I came and after just 2 sessions I had changed my eating habits and after 5 sessions I no longer eat because of my moods. I am controlled and sure and confident. Best of all I am losing weight and inches. My clothes fit and I have no inclination to go back to eating the way I was before. Thanks Tim!” Ray Page.

“ I have lost 9 pounds in 5 weeks. I don’t eat after 6 or 7pm. When I eat, I don’t eat a lot at a time. I feel good about this. I eat a salad at every meal and eat fruits and veggies for snacks. I walk on the treadmill for 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week.” Ron Bohannon

“I feel much better. I have more energy. I’ve lost 18 pounds. I feel I will loss much more. If I see that I’ve had a small setback I got right back on track. I also do leg exercises and ride a stationary bike. I started out at 2 miles a day. I now do 5 miles a day. My husband also comes and he feels better and we help each other our. He has lost 16 pounds!” Clola Bohannon.

“Tim’s treatments are absolutely wonderful. I was a little apprehensive at first, because I have tried everything from electric pulsing weight belts to every diet pill known to man with no results. I thought hypnosis would prove the same. I lost 5 pounds, which is what I wanted by listening to his CDs. You don’t even realize how much they are sinking in until you go to eat something bad that you used to love and you stop yourself because the desire isn’t there anymore. It really does give you the confidence and motivation to want to succeed and reach your goal.” (no name given)

“During my 1st session with Tim I actually saw myself turn in my mind toward my future self . I saw the future self and the today self begin to come together. I left the office and could not wait to drink water and have not stopped. I eat salads everyday – after years of never wanting a salad. And I cannot get enough broccoli! I have begun to already think about my body image differently. For the first time in 30 years I know I will reach my goal. This is so unbelievable and exciting!” Cheryl Lape

“ I went from 220 pounds to 210 pounds in two weeks! I haven’t been able to do that in over 2 ½ years! The most important thing to me was that I am now able to drink 8 glasses of water per day! I used to drink at least 12 glasses of pop and no glasses of water; now it’s the other way around! I haven’t had one drop of pop in 2 weeks! I am so excited because I am really beginning to believe more in the program. I know that this is not a fad diet, but a change of lifestyle that is long overdue. I’ve got a lot more weight to lose, but I’m confident that it will be a lot easier working with Tim than by myself!” Yolanda Feagan.

“My blood sugar the first day I saw Tim was 264. After one week of the program my sugar dropped to 141. It continues to be in the 140s which is a major improvement for me. Right now this is my measure of success.” Maryann Dienes

“This is our 3rd session. The changes I’ve noticed are major. We are eating maybe a third of what we ate before. Water is becoming a major priority. Our activity level had increased. Developing a positive attitude is a great advantage. Self-confidence has increased. At this time the highlight of our week is attending our sessions.” Kathy and Richard Hensley

“After my first time with your program I have lost 32 pounds, but most of all my diabetes is under control. No meds for 2 months.” Erma Holmes

“After going to my first session, I actually came home thirsty for water. Before the session I did not drink water at all, I did not like water. I drank only soda. I seldom drink soda now, I buy water by the gallon and have lost 30 pounds in a year’s time.” Shirley Null

“This hypnosis stuff is really amazing! I was skeptical of the results of this at first. I’ve finished my 3rd week and it’s really cool how sweet desserts and junk food doesn’t phase me anymore! I went through two labor day parties and was completely able to not want dessert, graze the food or feel that “pull” to eat something sweet! The CDs work great and I’m loving the quick results so fast! I’m eating sensibly, loving drinking water and feel really good about myself. I’ve got 2 pounds off without even really trying!” Robin Fraley.

“I was up to 5 cans of pop a day, a donut every morning, candy bar in the afternoon and several evenings a week popcorn and candy for a late night snack! Middle age and “secretary spread” were conspiring against me. The caffeine and sugar highs and lows left me with no energy. The extra pounds reduced my self-esteem. My daughter’s wedding was 5 months away and I refused to shop for a dress until I lost weight. Tim’s hypnosis therapy enabled me to get control of my life! Within the 5 months I lost 29 pounds – the majority of it the first 2 ½ months! I look gret, I feel great and I believe in myself! I still listen to Tim’s CD when I need an extra boost. I believe in Tim Shurr and the confidence he instilled in me.” Diane Page.

“I was skeptical and thought I could not be hypnotized. However during my first session with Tim, I felt relaxed and all of the stereotypes about hypnotism disappeared. It felt like I just had my eyes closed and someone was talking to me. After just one session I noticed changes in my behavior/habits that previously I had no will power to change. This will help me reach my goal.” Jill Hasiak

“I was apprehensive about my first visit but was desperate to be rid of the craving for sugar. I have to say, after my first session I felt great. There was no more sugar craving for the full week afterwards, which is amazing to me because I had to have something sweet after I ate, just like a smoker. I had more energy and felt good about myself. I am convinced hypnosis helped me.” Linda Jancaric

I have smoked on and off for 42 years; starting out I was very young. Everyone around me smoked. I went in the US Navy and quit for a two years span and that was the longest.   Michael L. Nolan,  US Navy Retired

After 48 years of smoking I was able to completely walk away from cigarettes without fear. I don’t miss the smoke and even feel pride in not attending the smoke breaks. With 3 others smoking in the house I have influenced them to reduce their habits greatly. It is pretty amazing that I don’t feel any aggression or discomfort from withdraw. The sessions have been the key to stopping.      Randy Merritt

My name is Itmar Cohen, 37 from Indianapolis. I have been smoking for 20 years and with Indy Hypnosis after my first session quit. Definitely worth trying.       Itmar cohen

Amy from Greencastle, I smoked 16 years. I tried to quit with Chantix and was unsuccessful. Chantix made me mean, depressed and I still had horrible cravings. When my friends smoked it was so hard to be around them. I came to Indy Hypnosis and did the stop smoking program. After my first session I haven’t thought of smoking since. I did not have to suffer through the horrible cravings being with my friends while they smoke doesn’t bother me at all except for the smell!        Amy Carter

I have been a smoker off and on for over 20 years.  I have quit repeatedly and nothing worked.  I skeptically tried hypnosis.  It works!  I have not had a cigarette in almost 2 weeks.  And I feel great!  I am a non-smoker!            Holly Pitcoch 

My name is Courtney and I am 35 years old, and I had smoked since I was 17 years old.  I came to my first session, but I wasn’t able to make the second session until 3 weeks later… the second session and the reinforcement CDs were the key for me.  I have been a non-smoker for 7 days now, and I feel wonderful!!  My next goal is to get my husband in here and save a BUNCH of money!!    Courtney Cooper

My name is Jay.  After 30 years I quit smoking through hypnosis.  Much easier than I imagined.  I feel better, cleaner and regaining energy I had lost.  After 2 weeks, trust me.  I have no anxiety, urges, sense of desperation.  Nothing negative at all.  I’m sure my smoking days are over.  I have my freedom again.          Jay Coons

I have been amazed by the results of this program. I am not only a non smoker after 25 years of smoking but I am more patient and relaxed in every day life. I have more patience with my children, when driving, and in any stressful situation. I feel healthier and I know know I am in  control of my life. I may not have control of what happens in life but I do have control of my reactions. I have more energy and have more time to accomplish my daily tasks because I am not wasting my time smoking. the breathing techniques I have learned have been extremely helpful. I am so grateful to Indy Hypnosis for giving me my freedom back. I am no longer chained the wall of cigarettes.      Sheathera Kennedy

I am so excited to have achieved my goal with quitting smoking with just the first session.  No more obsessing about cigarettes anymore.  I feel so free.  Theresa Charters  CST 

My name is Brenda Collins and I smoked for 30 years.  My husband begged me to quit and I would try but never succeed.  He sent me an email with an advertisement for Indy Hypnosis but I was very skeptical.  I attended the first session and left not sure I wanted to quit but intent on trying.  I scheduled my three sessions and each day I made it without a cigarette I felt more encouraged.  I am one week smoke free today and can’t wait to be one year smoke free and I believe I can do this and I will succeed.      Brenda Collins  Regional Sales Manager

Indy Hypnosis did what they said they would, help me quit my tobacco habit.  I have chewed for 27 years and smoked for 20 plus years.  After my 1st session, I no longer had the urge to do either.  They also helped me with my eating habits.  Not only am I a non-smoker, I eat better and have lost 5 lbs in 2 weeks.  I feel better!  This was a positive decision for me, and my family.  I am glad I said yes!   Chad Walton  Construction

“I had tried all the different methods available to quit smoking, but nothing worked.  I always returned to smoking.  After my 1st visit getting hypnosis I have barely had a craving at all. I feel energetic and much better!  I didn’t realize how cigarettes controlled my life!  I would “freak out” if I didn’t have them when I left the house, well no longer does this happen!  I am free and am very happy to be a non-smoker!  It worked for me and am very confident it will work for anybody.”  Rich Wait   Sales

The tools provided by Indy Hypnosis were critical for my survival the last 3 months. I was fortunate enough to begin exactly when my life took a very dangerous turn.  John and Roger are talented and expert at hypnosis. Very open minded and react to my individual fluctuations of growth.  I don’t regret anything. I have returned to my original value system, home and life partner.  I was off-kilter and scattered before and feel centered now. Also smoke-free.   Timothy Leonard

I like feeling healthy and not having to worry that I might be caught smoking.  No more sneaking around or “walking the dog”. No more worrying about smelling of smoke. The best is just being healthy.    Deb Tanner

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Tim Shurr, MA, as a hypnotist, NLP practitioner, and trainer in the disciplines of personal, professional, and organizational development. Tim has a wonderful reputation within the hypnotism community, and he’s the person we go to with questions about corporate speaking and training.

Tim has a keen knowledge of rapid-change techniques for individuals.  He also understands business, organizations, sales, and marketing, which is why he is in such high demand from corporate America and abroad.

I have known Tim Shurr for several years and, as a professional Certified Hypnotist myself, and having observed Tim’s amazing teaching strategies and curriculum, I must admit that Tim Shurr is probably one of the best hypnosis instructors in the business. Bryan Toder, President, Plymouth Hypnosis Center

I had already accomplished 50 hours at a hypnosis school in Illinois, but it was almost all lecture and very little application. I never felt qualified to work with clients. After joining the Hypnotism Academy of Indiana my confidence and abilities have gone through the ceiling! Tim Shurr’s innovative school is designed to help students literally be the best they can be. Watching Tim work with real clients enabled me to see how to handle hundreds of different clients with their issues, as well as their breakthroughs.

I am constantly learning new strategies, tools, and techniques to help me be a great hypnotist-and help people achieve their goals. I have had many opportunities to practice everything I am learning, on real people. My comfort level, confidence, and quality of work are at levels beyond my personal expectations! HAI offers a great program for students. It really does provide exactly what is says it will as a school. And I had even more profound results in regards to my own personal development. I recommend this training to everyone!”
