"When I first saw Kim's picture on the (Affinity-is this right?)
referral web site her image spoke to my hidden self and I felt the word
trust. During my interview with her I felt a bond form and that feeling
of trust grew stronger. Through Kim's acute awareness and attention to
my details she has led me to discover my intriguing inner world.
Kim is a gentle, knowledgeable and intuitive guide and she has helped me
find the door to my subconscious. I have gone through that door to find
a great comfort that I can visit whenever I choose. I have also
discovered tools within myself that are helping me build a better life
for myself from the inside out. Kim Manning is an excellent
hypnotherapist (is this spelled correctly?): A trustworthy, respectful
and focused guide." -Ivy Solomon

When I was first approached on the possibility of seeing a Certified hypnotherapist
for weight control,
I thought ‘yeah, right—this is probably a scam’. Let me share the drastic change
in mindset and fabulous experience I’ve had.
I’ve tried several different diets throughout the past 20 years, basically with little
Once I started therapy sessions with you, ‘diet’ became a four letter word that was
no longer needed in my vocabulary.
Among the many things I learned is how to control portion size, make better choices
in the food I eat, and exercise on a
regular basis. I now appreciate water more than I have in my life—and have come
to crave it!
One of the most important items you showed me, Kim, is to have self confidence to
make these life changing decisions.
I can’t explain how much better I feel about myself, even though I’m not at my goal
weight. The positive reinforcement
you’ve taught me is invaluable. In the past I was very self-conscious when walking
into a restaurant – not now!
I hold my head up high and truly feel better about myself than I have in 20 years.
For this, I will be eternally grateful.
Thank you for changing my lifestyle. Thank you for making me want to make changes.
You’re a powerful person,
and I’m very lucky to have had this experience with you.

Hi - WELLLL I hit 60 pounds today - 60 pounds released to the air! I'm very
excited--this is my lowest weight
in probably over 10 years. People at work are starting to mention that I'm
looking good. Yahoo! See you soon!!
Hi I just wanted to let you know how things are going. I would have contacted
you earlier in the week but xxxxxx is offering massive overtime this week so I have
been working almost 15 hours a day.
Well, Despite being exhausted from working to much I am doing well. I am feeling
better than I have in years. I have been working out the endorphins have curbed any
so called with-drawl which I really haven't had. I did have one question though about
the crying? I was really sad on Sunday and Monday of this week. Was it just a side
effect of running through my subconscious? Either way it has now stopped and the
re enforcement CD seemed to calm it out of me.
I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed having the re enforcement CD. It calmed
me so much before I fell asleep. I work up feeling very refreshed.
About Saturday, I don't think I really need it I think you hit the nail right on
the head in the first session. If you feel strongly about my coming in I will still
go in but I don't think it will make the connection stronger in my brain. If I can
survive a crying fit because I miss my husband ,which I did on Sunday and Monday,
without smoking I don't think there is anything stronger that could pull me back
to that. I have been in more emotional pain this past year without him by my side
then I have been if I had put all the funerals I have ever been too (for people I
cared about) into one year. Anyhow, I have to get ready for work. Have a great week.
If you would like to Email me at work I will be able to check it sooner than this

For years I suffered daily from severe headaches. My internist conducted various
tests and determined my headaches were not from any physical abnormality. I medicated
myself daily with Advil, Excedrin and Tylenol, but nothing worked. Finally, I decided
to try hypnotherapy. I found Focused Solutions on the Internet and have been thankful
ever since. Through my meetings with Kim Manning, I discovered that my headaches
were caused by suppressing negative emotions. By teaching me self-hypnosis and positive
affirmations, Kim has helped me to release any negativity and acknowledge my feelings.
I’m thrilled to say I no longer suffer from daily tension headaches.
Thank you Kim and Focused Solutions!
I've felt the most incredible amount of self-assurance & strength since our session,
it's incredible! And my good mood has just been so contagious, I have to laugh! I've
even been quick witted the last couple of days! I love it! And I just had to share
it with you!
have a great weekend!
I have lost over 500 pounds. Perhaps I’d better explain. I lost 125 pounds four
different times only to regain them! I have tried every diet known to man, and each
one worked for me. (low fat, low carb, grapefruit diet, Atkins, to name a few).
I began a weight reduction program in October of 2003. My son and his fiancé announced
their plans for getting married on September 4, 2004. At that moment, I made a commitment
to lose 100 pounds by their wedding. A “commitment” does not leave me any choice
but to stay focused and true to the program I have chosen.
It’s ten months later and I have released 90 pounds. The wedding is in 2 months,
and I have 10 more pounds to go. Whether I make my goal is not as important as the
fact that I have given 100% of myself to attain it. I know, with complete certainty,
that I will look the best I can!
Once I had my goals, my focus and my determination set on cruise control, I knew
there was another issue I had to tackle. I knew I was a star at releasing weight.
After all, I had proven that after losing 125 pounds four times. I knew that I
had to look at the reasons I gained back the weight.
I felt that I did not eat because I loved food. Rather, I used food to comfort
me when I felt sad, lonely or unloved. People and events triggered me to turn to
I was told by a dear friend about a hypnotherapist who could help me with my issues.
Another commitment was made when I signed up with Kim Manning for 6 sessions. In
these sessions we delved into my childhood traumas, which set my path of replacing
love with food. Due to these sessions I have reprogrammed my sub conscience, and
my relationship with food is no longer an insidious one! I am now able to recognize
when events or people trigger me to eat; having said that, I must interject that
the triggers are fewer and farther between! I can say without hesitation or reservation
that the yo-yo syndrome that has plagued me for years will never return again. The
single most important difference between this time and other weight loss efforts
is definitely the hypnotherapy sessions with Kim.
