Rich is very professional and, although he's young, he has a LOT of life experience and is extremely insightful. I felt that he really wanted to get to know the most he could about why I was there and what I wanted to accomplish so that he could help me in the most effective way. And what is kind of strange for me is that I felt comfortable being open and honest with him, although it was my first time to meet him AND my first time at hypnosis!
Rich has a way of establishing a quick rapport with me and I felt that I could honestly trust him (which, with my levels of anxiety about doing anything new, and meeting anyone new, is unusual for me to feel that way so quickly)!
When we started our hypnotherapy session, I was very comfortable and relaxed and went "under" pretty quickly. He sends you a copy of your session so that you can listen to it (he recommended twice a day for 21 days for things to really start to turn around for me), but I understand he is not a miracle worker (and that is not what hypnotherapy is about).
I know what I need to do and, hopefully with Rich's help, I can begin to be motivated to start the process (I went for weight loss, but there is so much more underlying "stuff", i.e., self esteem, that goes along with it).
I'm excited to begin to be able to do the steps that I already know I need to take to lose the weight, but for some reason, have been unable to do (I have been "blocked" from achieving my goals, for whatever reason). I am excited to start this process and I have faith that Rich's techniques and hypnotherapy is a tool that will be very useful to me.
If you are interested in trying Hypnotherapy, for whatever reason, I highly recommend Rich. I think he is a legitimate practitioner and wants very much to help you achieve your goals. I feel that he is a natural healer and he definitely has a gift!
