I had reached a point in my life that I knew I was at a place I didn't want to be. I needed to get healthier if I didn't want to become one of my patients in the near future. Approaching 60 years old with some chronic health problems, I was aware that I needed outside assistance if I was going to change my life. Hypnotherapy has become the answer to achieve my goals. It has shown me the path to control over my life again. As the weight comes off, the medications and disease issues have declined. Positive attitude and confidence have taken the place of desperation and hopelessness. An added bonus has also come with this new lifestyle---sleep has returned and stress levels have plummeted. This pathway may not be as simple as popping another pill, but the rewards have been amazing.

I initially scheduled an appointment with Robert Merlin for weight loss and to boost my self-confidence, particularly in the workplace. In the first session, however, I realized I had deep unresolved feelings of grief and anger I had not yet dealt with fully. Robert's insights and honesty played a critical role in helping me clearly assess my circumstances and realize my own power in determining my own positive outcomes. I am thankful that I learned about the Merlin Centre and would recommend it highly to anyone. It's changed my outlook on life, and bolstered my trust in myself. A wonderful experience all around!

I came to the Merlin Centre with the hope that I could get over my fear of flying. I had not flown alone in over 30 years. The in flight fear was real and debilitating to me. I only flew on a plane if it was an emergency. After my sessions I had an emerging confidence that grew stronger every day that I could successfully fly again. Before my first flight , my pre-flight anxiousness was greatly reduced. My plane flight was also manageable, much better then ever before . I am now ready for my second flight and I am looking forward to it. I have had fantastic progress thanks to Robert Merlin and the Merlin Centre. I am now 2 times successful with hypnosis - Smoking and my Fear of Flying. Hypnosis works and I would recommend it to anyone who wants results.

I had been biting my fingernails since I can remember (so that is approximately 50 years). Over the years, I had tried everything from wearing gloves, to snapping a band on my wrist, to polishing my nails with disgusting odors/tastes. I came to the Merlin Center thinking this was just a matter of willpower. But what i learned was that even with nail biting, there are underlying issues and if I didn't address them, it would be a constant struggle to stop biting my nails. With Robert Merlin's counsel, I was able to recognize these issues. After the issues were uncovered and having the hypnosis session, I now have beautiful, healthy nails. I feel proud and self-confident knowing that I am in control of my well-being. I highly recommend Robert Merlin for self esteem issues, positive self change, learning to forgive and let go issues, and nail biting. Every issue I have endeavored to change has been dealt with and resolved through hypnotherapy at the Merlin Centre.

I wanted to stop smoking but nothing seemed to work. So I decided to try the Merlin Centre for Hypnosis. I will say I was skeptical and worried about the cost of the sessions. But after the sessions I felt so positive and I was so glad I chose to do this. I realized I no longer even wanted to smoke. The habit was gone. I became so much more positive about myself and it was so easy for me. Everyone who wants to stop smoking should try this.

I went to the Merlin Centre to stop Smoking .I had been smoking for over 30 years. I felt weak with myself and I was unsure if it would work for me. The effect on me was almost immediate. I felt strong and empowered after the first session. I also have been sleeping better and I even started dreaming again. I have not smoked a cigarette since the sessions and even the want of a cigarette is gone. I am very thankful that I asked for help and the Merlin Centre made the process easier for me. I would recommend their hypnotism services to my friends and family.

I came to the Merlin Centre for stress management. I was having trouble sleeping and I felt very angry. I also felt a lot of resentment and I was unable to cope with the stress at the workplace. After just a few hypnosis sessions I felt a strong peace of mind. I also was falling asleep and staying asleep and waking up more refreshed than I had in a long time. My stress level was reduced greatly. I also found I was able to deal with stressful situations with out any anger. I am now able to enjoy my life more. Robert Merlin was a great help and I feel so much better. I would recommend the Merlin Centre to anyone looking to better their life by changing old habits.

I felt stronger and more refreshed than I ever have. I know I will never smoke again .I am now a non-smoker after 25 years! This has helped me to live a better life and have a healthy future. I would recommend the Merlin Centre to anyone who wants to stop smoking. it will be the best gift you can give yourself.

Sarah H. said:   March 14, 2014 3:08 pm PST
I, too, was surprised by the effectiveness of the hypnosis sessions. Talking to Mr. Merlin gave me a different outlook on life and made me feel at peace with things I cannot change or prevent. He's a great listener; I never felt like I was being judged by my issues. I'm grateful for his help, and I'd recommend his services to anyone!

Hypnotherapy has changed my life. Robert counseled with me to get to the root of my self-esteem issues. After finding the root cause, the hypnosis sessions were designed for my sub-conscience to awaken my conscience being. I feel so enlightened and empowered now. I used to think massages were the ultimate gift I could give myself to feel better but those results only lasted a few days and were primarily for my external being. Hypnotherapy is hands down the BEST gift I have ever given myself; I feel the results of these sessions every second of every day. I am more positive, happier with life and have much healthier relationships. I have and would highly recommend the Merlin Centre to anyone. Robert Merlin is highly qualified and such a genuine and kind person. He has helped change my life for the better.

I am a workout maniac. Most weeks working out a minimum of 5 days a week. Yet, I still could not lose weight. I have a terrible sweet tooth and could not pass by a donut. With Robert's help, I have lost 35 lbs in 7 months and am continuing to trim down. I am eating better, less and I am still enjoying what I eat.

Tara Sanford said:   December 4, 2012 12:33 pm PST
I had a lack of confidence and I had a hard time trusting myself. After the sessions I felt very calm and peaceful. I am finding I feel more at peace now with things in my life. It was a great experience and I would recommend it to my friends and family.

Barbara Casey said:   December 3, 2012 4:24 pm PST
Before my hypnosis session I was very apprehensive as to what would happen. After my first session I felt relaxed and at the same time energized. I am much more aware of what I am eating. I am very conscious of every bite. This was a wonderful experience and I can not wait until the next session. Oh, and I lost four pounds in my first week! I recommend Robert and the Center to anyone needing to lose weight the easy way.

I wanted to try hypnosis because I was drinking sodas all the time and I wanted to stop the habit. I relly felt confident that hypnosis would work for me. I had tried willpower and that did not work! After the session I felt very relaxed and calm. I even fell asleep. I now have greater confidence that the positive changes will take place and I can achieve my goal. I would recommend hypnosis and Robert to my friends who may want to gain self control over their habits.

Brad Jenkins said:   November 15, 2012 10:20 am PST
I wanted to quit smoking. I heard that hypnosis worked well for many people but I was still skeptical. I decided to try it because I really wanted to quit. Wow, was I amazed. After just one session I went from a pack and a half a day to less tan two cigarettes a day. The second session was even better and now I have quit smoking for good. What a wonderful experience. I also have been sleeping better and not waking up during the night like I used to. I would recommend Robert Merlin to friends and family and anyone else who needs to quit smoking.

Lisa C. said:   November 14, 2012 2:56 pm PST
I had been smoking for years and had tried to quit many times and nothing ever worked.I really wanted to quit.I could not believe how easy it was using hypnosis. This was the easiest method I have ever used. After my sessions I quit smoking right away.I was a non-smoker after my first session. It has been almost seven weeks and I am still smoke free! I do not even really want a cigarette now. This worked for me. I would highly recommend Robert Merlin and Hypnotherapy Center to anyone wishing to quit.

Before my first hypnosis session I was out of control when it came to weight gain. I was in a constant battle with myself. After just one session I felt calmer and more peaceful. I am now eating smaller portions and making better choices.

Julie Vorman said:   September 18, 2012 10:17 am PST
I wanted to thank you for all your help. I do feel that I have benefited greatly from your sessions.I am continuing to lose weight. I feel better about myself.I am doing better with prioritizing areas of my life for my overall health and wellness. I am smiling a lot more now and I am genuinely pretty happy again and I think it shows to others.

Maria Shefield said:   September 5, 2012 3:50 pm PST
I came to the center for weight loss. I had a lot of anxiety,guilt and I was aware of my mindless eating but I was not able to stop it by willpower alone. After my first session I felt calmer and my will power was much stronger. I had great results for stopping mindless eating and my willpower remains very strong. The weight loss did not happen immediately, but it is happening. I am VERY satisfied with the results. Some other issues came to the surface during our sessions and I am now seeing my familt therapist. Thank you SO much. I would come back again.

Cassie Lutz said:   September 5, 2012 7:31 am PST
Before my session I was nervous with alot of anxiety. I had a fall when tumbling and the fear stopped me from continuing a sport I loved. After a few sessions I felt confident, happy,relaxed and ready to tumble on my college team for try outs. I did do my flips and tumble and my fear was gone! Hypnotherapy really worked for me and helped me out. I would recommend Robert Merlin and the Hypnotherapy Center to my friends and family.

Diana M said:   June 27, 2012 3:39 am PST
I actually scheduled my appointment with Robert Merlin because I knew a person who lost a substantial amount of weight through hypnotherapy. What I have received is far beyond a weight loss treatment. I have learned that my weight gain is a result of how my life had become so out of balance. I lost myself and I was on a serious downhill slope. Robert Merlin has helped me in such a tremendous way. He has helped me find my way back to who I truly am. The techniques he has taught me to relieve stress, to relax, to listen to myself and my body has had an amazingly positive effect on my life. It has now been two months and my family and friends are still amazed on how calm and happy I am. My family and work life is now back in balance. Robert Merlin continues to help me along and teaches me more in every session. Not only am I in the best frame of mind I have been in in a very long time, there is an added bonus -- the weight is coming off too. : )

I have been trying to lose weight for years. One diet after the other. You name it and I have tried it. The Problem was I lost the weight then gained it back and then some. Then I felt guilty and depressed. This rollercoaster would not stop. So I had heard that hypnotherapy worked for many people so I decided to try it. That is when I found the Hypnotherapy Center and Robert Merlin. I do not know what I expected but was I surprised. No diets, no lectures, no guilt, no hunger. It was like I was finally listening to myself. Wanted to eat the right foods in the right amounts. I was getting rid of my old habits and changing them for new ones that were better for me. And it was easy. I was never even hungry or having cravings or urges for food anymore. I just seemed to do what I always wanted to do but never did. All I know is that it worked for me. I will never go back to those old eating habits again! I look good and I feel good. This really was a lifestyle change for me. Robert was caring, empathetic and always made me feel good about myself. If you are thinking about losing weight you HAVE to try hypnotism. Robert, thank you so much for helping find the real me that had been hidden for so long. Life is so much better now.

My surgery was scheduled at 5:30pm with arrival at 4:00pm. I listened to the Pre-Surgery CD that you created from our office session around 1:30pm before leaving home. By the time I arrived for the procedure, I was so relaxed and not as nervous as I usually am. Since my session with you, my pain level has decreased tremendously. I managed to go without pain meds until 5am. I did pass a few very small stones. I am looking forward to see how my recovery progresses.

BLK said:   December 14th, 2011 2:51 pm
After years and years of playing basketball and softball and turning my ankle, I realized it was time to solve the problem of my reoccurring ankle instability. The surgical date was set, but emotionally, I was filled with situational stress and trepidations. I sought Robert's advice and with his help, I am currently 6 weeks removed from complete ankle reconstruction. I only used pain medication for the first 4 days following surgery (mostly to dull the pain from the nerve block wearing off; BTW I totally do not recommend a nerve block), and I have well surpassed my surgeon's expectations for recovery. Since my recovery has progressed so rapidly, my surgeon skipped the walking boot altogether: I graduated from a plaster cast to a lace up brace. The 8 inch scar in barely noticeable, and most notably, I am pain-free! The success of this surgery can be attributed 100% to you, Robert, for understanding my complicated psyche, for unearthing my resilience, and for instilling a swift and painless recovery process. I truly believe, had it not been for you and your methods, I would have needed more pain medication, and I would not have been as advanced in my recovery process. For this, I am grateful.

I just wanted to thank you so much for helping me out. I was so close to the point of cancelling the appointment but I am glad I did not. I had been wanting to do this for a couple of years but I was unsure. After yesterday afternoon, I did not think I would be able to go under hypnosis or benefit from this but I did. I remember you telling me right before I left that I would probably have a very good night sleep. I kept remembering on my way home as I was not quite sure if I would actually be able to sleep much anyway. For the past few weeks, I have had some pain in my lower back due to osteoarthritis. I went to bed at approximately 1:30am Friday night and woke up at 11:00am Saturday morning. I could not believe that I slept that long. I have never been so relaxed and it feels good. Again, thanks and I will see you in two weeks.

Incredible! Robert really helped me get to the root of the issue and was able to put together an amazing program. His intuitive approach and imaginative methods are really making a difference in my life. He is an A-list resource who I am delighted to be working with.

The experience is not unlike putting on your first pair of glasses. I am amazed at how different life looks after just a few sessions. Robert Merlin works with you to help you establish new habits that will manifest the you that was there at the core all along. I only wish I had done it sooner!
