Success Stories - What are people saying about the PA Hypnosis Center?
Kerri Griffith, Q 92.9 (Anxiety)
"I'm Kerri Griffith, with the Q Morning Show on Q 92.9 (in Pittsburgh, PA). Dan has helped me with my anxiety and fear of flying on planes. He taught me some techniques that I used in March when I traveled, for the first time ever away from my children to Arizona. I found that I was able to focus on the good and actually enjoy the flight with one breathing technique and to keep my level of anxiety to a very low level with some other techniques.”
Kevin (Weight Loss)
"When I came in for my first visit, I was 429 pounds and feeling hopeless. Every "diet" I had ever tried had failed and I was starting to think that I was someone who was going to die young without ever really having a chance to live. I knew I had to make a change if I was going to be around long enough to accomplish my goals and dreams. I read about PA Hypnosis Center and some of the work Dan Vitchoff had done with the U.S. Olympic athletes in China, and though I was uncertain if hypnosis would work for me, I thought it was worth a try. When I came in, I met with Catie and she was very kind and listened to my concerns as she explained the process. For anyone who has not experienced hypnosis before, it is not at all like what you see on TV and in the movies, it is a very relaxing and comforting experience, and you are in control the whole time. After my first visit I was more confident about my eating choices and ability to lose weight. Each visit after that only helped to renew my confidence as I fought this battle. As anyone who struggles with weight is aware, confidence is key, and hypnosis has been a powerful tool in this struggle. As of today, I am down to 300 pounds, and I am feeling confident about tackling the remaining weight. A word of caution- hypnosis is not an all-in-one solution. But it is an extremely valuable tool to anyone who is willing to put in the hard work and effort to change their lives. I know, because it has helped change mine, and I am now looking forward to the long and healthy road ahead of me.”
Robert S. (Weight Loss)
"I lost 20 pounds and lowered my cholesterol with a high protein diet. I don’t crave between-meal snacks. I am eating healthier foods. I don’t drink diet soda anymore. I exercise 4 times a week at a gym. My blood sugar is under control and better than it has been in 15 years. I have a positive attitude and a brighter outlook on life.”
Drew M. (Smoking Cessation)
"I was a smoker for 36+ years and successfully quiet with little or no sensations. It’s amazing and really works.”
Mary Lou N. (Weight Loss)
"I have lost 22 pounds in 2 months. I have not eaten or desired any sweets, junk foods, or ice cream since my first session. I totally feel in control of my eating habits. I no longer over eat. I feel so relaxed when listening to the CD’s and practice relaxing each day. I have started to enjoy exercising and doing hobbies to lose weight.”
Judy (Weight Loss)
"Catie has been wonderful. I’ve lost over 35 pounds and hoping to lose another 20 pounds. It’s been easy. Hypnosis has given me the will power to stay on a diet and be in control of my eating. I no longer crave the sweets and if I do have a piece of dessert I have the will power not to go crazy. I recommend it highly and think this center and staff here is superb. Catie is easy to talk with and listens to whatever you feel you’re struggling with.”
Erin L. (Weight Loss)
"I have been punishing myself with grueling workouts- running 20 miles/week on my elliptical machine (even on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day) and couldn’t lose any weight! All I was thinking about was food- even in my dreams. I gained 28 pounds in one year despite all of the exercise because of my "superhuman" appetite. Now, through hypnosis I’ve been able to eat less, feel full, and make better food choices. In fact, I lose 10 pounds and hypnosis has been the ONLY thing that’s worked for me. Several of the medications I take increase my appetite. In fact, the most common side effect is to develop diabetes. I’ve been able to lose weight- which is amazing. I’m so grateful. Thank You!”
Body, Mind, and Spirit - Donna W.
"What a journey I have had over the past eight months. If anyone would have told me, September of 2008, that I would feel this good(Body, Mind, and Spirit) on May of 2009, I would never have believed them. I had always thought that I was a positive person but over the past eight months I have learned what being positive really feels like. I have two of my favorite people at the Pa. Hypnosis Center to thank for helping me to believe that I could become the person that I was meant to be, just by changing the way that I thought about myself. I have learned so much and sometimes it was not easy but most oft the time it was great. I originally went to see Daniel Vitchoff and Catie Dolgos to lose weight, so I could become a healthier person. I have accomplished this and so much more from my sessions and I am so blessed to have found them. The end results are terrific and I now have this warm and cozy feeling inside of me and that makes me feel like the sun is shining on the inside and the outside, at the exact same time. Dan and Catie helped me to retrain my mind as to how I think about food, exercise, and most of all myself.”
Anxiety and Panic Attacks - Kim L. October 7, 2008
"I am extremely grateful to Catie and PA Hypnosis Center. I have not driven a car in about 2 years and after a few sessions I am driving again. It has made a huge difference in my life and those around me. Thanks again!”
Weight Loss – MC
Thanks to hypnosis, I eat vegetables galore, more lean protein and drink more water. Through hypnosis, I find that I can make food choices much easier now. Hypnosis through Dan has put my life in control to a healthier me. My subconscious mind is in control through hypnosis and I know that through hypnosis I am in control of food, food isn’t in control of me!”
Weight Loss – Barbara G.
“I tend to be a binge eater, a sweets eater and a fast food eater. Dan has really helped me to get away from those things and replace them with healthier habits.” Barbara has lost over 37 pounds since beginning the program in November 2005
Smoking – Dave C.
“I am 28 years old, own my own business, and have smoked for over 10 years. I learned about Dan Vitchoff from a friend who quit smoking. I tried several other ways of quitting and found hypnosis to be easier than I ever imagined. I am starting a new life and family now smoke free. Again, I thought it would be one of the most difficult tasks, but it was easy. My life is now turning around.”
Weight Loss – Anonymous
”In the beginning I didn’t think it would work, but now after coming to the sessions it really is working. I have no desire for sugar. I lost 10# in a month and I’m exercising more.”
Weight Loss - Lucy
“I have not had a donut since the first day I came here. I can walk right by the donuts at the office and they’re not calling my name anymore. Halloween candy is still sitting in the bag and never occurs to me to eat it. My daughter-in-law bought fudge while on vacation and I had no desire to eat it.”
Smoking & Weight Loss – Michelle S.
“I started smoking at age 13 and wished I could have met Dan at age 15!It has been the easiest thing I’ve ever done! I’ve gone down 2 sizes. I exercise regularly and I have stayed away from powdered donuts which was my biggest downfall.”
Bob R. December 11, 2006
“While at present I am a work in progress. I feel working with Dan has lifted my spirits and I feel I am headed in the right direction. Right now, I am enjoying the game of golf more. I think I am heading toward the goal of playing the best golf I am capable of playing. I am getting the tools to help me become the player I want to be. I am even enjoying other aspects of my life better.”
