Working With Barb Davies

Moving on from my last career was probably one of the HARDEST choices I’ve had to make, but after the session I had with you it became clear that I was holding onto something that wasn’t worth the effort. The money has been rolling in and I have gone from being the only one offering my services to now employing 4 people and running a very successful business. I know the growth potential is huge and I cannot thank you enough for helping me get my “head” around the blocks that were in my way and holding me back. I’m excited to use your hypnosis sessions again in the near future.

The success that I now am having. I love it! Worked great for me! After our last session, I felt better, more positive, lighter, and less anxiety and stress. Sometimes negative thoughts appear, but I don’t dwell on them like I did before. I got some new ideas for promoting my business and wanted to act on them. I started writing my own story to use in my marketing. The words just came to me. And I’ve started making more money.

In the past few years, Barb and I met for sessions a couple of times. I was amazed by how much hypnosis helped me to quit smoking, then within the next nine months, I experienced two separate incidents / traumas, one of which was a loss that kicked-the-crap out of me. I was definitely impressed and interested in learning more about hypnosis for my own personal growth. When I saw that Barb was offering the hypnotist certification program, I jumped at the opportunity. I knew Barb to be someone who is authentic and who lives with integrity; I was confident the course would be quality. This hypnosis certification program is beyond what I expected. I highly recommend it.

My teacher, Barb Davies is one of the most dedicated, honest and hard-working people I’ve ever met. I was very honored to have her as my teacher. I learned so much information in this course. Barb made it very enjoyable to learn. It is very interesting, the more I learned , the more I wanted to learn!! Barb spent extra time with any student that needed extra help . Barb is very caring and dedicated to her profession, and her students. Barb took great pride in teaching this course. I look forward to taking any other course in the future that Barb will offer. Barb is a very good teacher! Keep up the great teachings, the world is a better place with teachers like you!
