~ Jeff Dearborn

I have been trying to meditate and achieve a higher state of relaxation and consciousness for nearly twenty years. In all of my time and effort of reading books, listening to tapes, burning candles and incense, and watching sunsets have I ever experienced the attainment of peace, tranquility, and relaxation that I have through being hypnotized by my Practitioner Paul Hessinger.

I had my first NLP session with Master Practitioner Paul Hessinger on July 7, 2008 to stop my addiction to nicotine and fingernail biting. Today is November 11, 2008 and last Thursday marked my four month anniversary being nicotine free. This Thursday will mark four months since I stopped biting my fingernails. This may not sound like a big deal but I have been trying to do this for over thirty years... I have also had a very difficult class to teach this past year and the meditations that I go through during lunchtime have given me an added boost of energy in the afternoon when I need it most. I highly recommend NLP to anyone.

Recently, while visiting the USA, I consulted with Mr. Paul Hessinger for a session in hypnotherapy based NLP. Mr. Hessinger was very thorough and insightful in the questions he asked of me in preparation for this NLP work, and entirely professional during the session itself. His creativity of approach was most impressive, and I am very satisfied with the benefits he has opened up for me with his elegant, self-confident and impressively informed approach...

Paul is a highly effective Guide and an amazingly powerful healer. He can help to break through the most stubborn of psychological patterns and lead you on a new road to freedom! I highly recommend him for any area that one appears stuck.

~ Barbara 2

Paul is amazing at what he does. He is a genuine, intuitive, compassionate, and gifted man. He loves what he does and it shows in the details of the sensitive yet profound work I have done with him ...I highly recommend Paul for any sensitive issues you may be dealing with. From the moment I walked in to his office I felt a sense of comfort... If I could I would simply post a big heart because my heart feels the relief from your work :-)

...The sessions generated a gentle, yet direct process that assisted me in breaking through some rather ingrained patterns of emotional eating. Through the use of food journals that targeted emotional triggers, and through my own experiences with food, Paul was able to guide me through my emotional past using my own words in a loving yet surprisingly quick process. By accessing my subconscious mind through hypnotism, we were able to locate problem areas and encourage my subconscious to work WITH my conscious mind to reach my goals.

Paul made a tape for my use at home to further practice what we did in the sessions. Additionally, he taught me techniques for self-hypnotism to use the rest of my life... Paul helped me to reaffirm what I already know. The answers to my difficulties are in me already. I CAME EQUIPPED TO DEAL. Life and all its tribulations combined together to make me doubt my own power and knowledge. NLP is a powerful tool to help me get back to myself and the power within.

I have worked with Paul Hessinger and I want to take this moment to honor him for the man that he is. It's difficult to find passion, love, common sense and a quest for knowledge and truth in one package. You will find this and much more when you spend time with this man. His abilities to help one create change at a very deep level using the principles and strategies of NLP will pleasantly surprise you.

Kindest Regards,
Christopher Cody, Phoenix, AZ

~ Letter from psychotherapist, D, co-leader of survivor group, recommending Paul:

Dear B,
Paul Hessinger has approached me about running the next survivor group together. Below is a list of compelling neuro-linguistic programming healing techniques that he has used on himself and wants to share with other survivors. I think it would be most attractive to other survivors to have "one of their own" who has worked his own recovery so well be leading this group with me.

I am very excited by this proposal. Paul has done amazingly well and one of his life goals is to bring recovery to his fellow survivors. This would be a nice introduction to the survivors of his skills. Paul was instrumental in the last group even starting since he had to field all kinds of negative, distrustful fear of me, (The survivors were afraid to come not knowing who I was and Paul was able to reassure them that this was a good thing to have people even show up in our original group.)

I believe Paul will be a powerful addition to the healing of the group members.

The band of four that have stayed committed are really growing and healing. It has been a good investment on the Church's behalf.


Two abuse survivors:

Prior to the support group, I did not realize how depressed I was due to my abuse. The group was very supportive in helping be identify how my abuse negatively impacted me. Additionally, the group identified ways, such as NLP, to help me overcome the negative aspects of my abuse. It has been a transforming experience for me and everyone in the group.
--A male survivor

"Being abused, I felt like I was the only one. Being in the group, with other survivors in a safe environment helped me dispel the myth that I was all alone. The myth had kept me in denial. Dispelling that myth I have been able to steadily stay on a healing path"
--A female survivor

The past two days I have been absolutely crazy with angst and I don't know why...The amazing thing is that I have had absolutely NO CRAVING for a cigarette or nicorette gum, and I haven't been wanting to bite my fingernails either... I believe it is because of my NLP hypnosis.

For the past two days I have listened to my c.d... I have really been focusing on forgiveness and this 45 minute rejuvenation has done wonders in letting go of past grievances for a period of time... one phenomenal benefit I have experienced recently is the lowering of my blood pressure from around 129... to 113 after it was suggested in my hypnosis that it would change and lower to a healthy level.

Another unbelievable session with my cd of my hypnosis session with you...
They asked Michealangelo the artist how he sculpted and he said: "I just see my piece already in the stone and just chip and carve out those pieces that aren't part of my subject." That's what I feel that N.L.P. does for me. I just chip away those pieces that aren't really a part of me: tension, resentment, anger. Then I'm just left with joy and good feelings and then it's much easier to work, write, think, do anything...

Paul -
My sense is this work realigns the unconscious with the conscious, so they are both moving in the same direction, ...That is the only logical explanation for the sense of power, hope and trust that everything is going to be fine. I have been sleeping more soundly since my first session...I will be telling people about your work...

~ Letters from "A"

Dear Paul,
I want to thank you for the wonderful NLP session that I had with you this past Saturday. I am feeling the recovery and the freedom from the negativity that I used to feel before I came to the session. In fact, I thought I was going to discuss all the fears and the jealousies I had towards my sister and instead, I simply am in total bliss and feeling a sense of joy and love inside of me. I am no longer holding anyone responsible for my problems and my failures... I was really in seventh heaven today with a sense of gratitude. ..

~Thank you so much for the wonderful work you do. I am suddenly happy ... I know that the work you did had a tremendous effect on the consciousness. I am no longer afraid to make the first move to connect with people, and not so embarrassed that I am not this rich person... I am rich with ideas and enthusiasm and most of all, I have a lot more capacity to love than before...

~...You really are gifted in going deep during the sessions and touching some very important issues and more important, getting rid of them...I feel transformed by the couple of sessions that I had ... Even though I had a long day today and have been on the go since 5:00 a.m., I still have tons of energy ... this has helped with the underlying depression that I have had for years... Each session was full of very wonderful transformative exercises...

~Last Friday's session was so amazing. I feel so much more whole and not anymore in the jealousy stage. Thank you so much for the wonderful work that you do.

~ Debbie - work with anxiety and grief

Dear Paul,
...I feel that in a big way, that anxiety energy has been re-focused into more of an enthusiastic nature... I find myself willing to show up in life with an excitement. I wake up looking forward to what the day may bring, as opposed to dreading what might happen. This is a huge shift.!!

Our session on Grief:
I Am amazed at all the sparkle in my life, and the gifts showering upon me. Anxiety has not been an issue, I Am smoothly flowing in intense situations. I feel no Grief in the background. I AM happy!...In what ways can I transmit this powerfully to others, so that they may ride the joy of themselves...

~ Laura - self worth

...after our session, you asked me to go back and think of a time when I felt less than, and I couldn't. This was after I had brought you the 2 pages of all the stuff I felt less than and not enough of and unworthy. ... The following day... I got up and wrote in my journal about my resentments ...In the past, it would be I FEAR I AM unworthy,I FEAR I AM unlovable, etc. -but nothing came. That blew me away. So, you gave me a HUGE gift...

~ Deborah H.-stomach pain

I just want to say that this experience has been amazing and I feel that the feeling in my stomach is gone. I also have a sense of peace and calm and a knowingness that my life is going to transform as the minutes, hours days weeks and months unfold. Having lived with this feeling of pain in my stomach for six months and having tried meditation, visualization, prayer, and so many things that sometimes took it away only temporarily, the pain is now gone after only one session with you.
