Weight Loss Testimonials
“ After trying and failing to lose weight for most of my adult life I discovered Trevor´s advertisement in our local paper and was intrigued to find out more. It turned out to be the best thing I have done as it changed my whole way of thinking about food. There really is no diet to follow and no foods are banned, Trevor just shows you the way to banish cravings, to eat sensibly and also through the hypnosis experience to take control of the foods you eat. It really is so easy and very successful as for the first time in about 20 years I have reduced my weight and am thrilled at the results. I would recommend anyone to give this course a try, Trevor is so easy to talk to, patient and understanding and makes the whole process effortless ”
“ As a compulsive comfort eater, I booked a 4 week hypnotherapy course for weight control on a one to one basis with Trevor. After the very first session I came away feeling calm and confident and with a totally different attitude towards food, there are no diets to follow on this course, no food is banned. Trevor´s tireless encouragement and support make it so easy. My way of eating has changed for the better without me even having to think about it. As the course went on the pounds dropped off and I am delighted to say they continue to do so. I´m going to keep in touch with Trevor on a regular basis for relaxation hypnotherapy, that´s how good he is. If anyone has any doubts about the sessions - don´t, just enjoy and let Trevor do the rest ”
“ I cannot recommend enough the weight loss hypnotherapy sessions. I recently attended one to one sessions and have managed to shed 7lbs so far. After a single one to one session I immediately stopped my night time comfort eating (which I had been doing regularly for the last few years) and as a result am shedding weight and feel happier and healthier.
“ Having recently completed Trev's weight reduction course I have to say I couldn't be happier. I have been on a diet for as long as I can remember without any great success. I booked onto Trev's course after a colleague told me all about it and it's the best thing I've done for a long time.
I admit I was sceptical at first but went with an open mind and positive attitude. After the first session my eating habits were changed and food was no longer the main focus of my day as it always had been in the past. It's now six weeks on and I've got rid of over a stone in weight.
Best of all, it's easy and I don't feel like I'm missing anything or being deprived in any way so I don't see me falling off this particular wagon ever!
The sessions are so friendly and relaxed so there's no need to feel nervous about attending. The bonus side effect of the course for me is my new relaxed state of mind; stress is a thing of the past! Everyone should have a friendly hypnotherapist like Trev.
Thank you Trev!
“ Before I attended Trevor's 4 week group weight loss course I had tried numerous diets always losing a little bit of weight before putting it all back on plus more. I admit I was sceptical as to whether hypnotherapy would work at first but in the week following the first session I got rid of 4 pounds which was very encouraging.
I have now completed the course and have got rid of a massive 13 pounds of weight in five weeks and I am confident that I will reach my target weight. The most surprising thing though is that I have made no conscious effort to achieve this and most definitely do not feel like I am on a diet. I would not hesitate in recommending this course. ”
“All I can say is WOW! From the first session Trevor began to give me the tools to make changes to me and what I was about, instantly food became less of a focus, within days I started to get rid of excess weight and began to weigh lighter. I'm now 25lb lighter after 12 weeks!
With the techniques Trevor used we was able to find the start point of my poor relationship with food, he managed to open up deeply buried emotions and reasons which hadn't been resolved for 42 years, even today about 12 weeks on I'm still finding good memories which had been lost in the depths of bad memories and I continue to replay the good memories I keep finding.
With each session something new is learnt to control my relationship with food and my weight, I now have total control over what I put in my mouth. I'm now 25lb lighter after 12 weeks, including having an all inclusive holiday on which I wasn't limited to what I could eat and enjoyed steaks and full English breakfasts etc. I don't have to watch what I eat as I only eat when I'm truly hungry.
Trevor has given me the tools and techniques to continue changing my bad habits and I can honestly say I haven't felt hungry from the beginning and as an added benefit I feel healthier.
My clothes are now looking really baggy, I'm lucky I don't throw anything away as I have 3 sizes of clothes. As I lost control I bought bigger clothes as they got too tight to fasten. I dropped from size XXL to size L in the first 8 weeks and am now feeling smaller still
I could eat and enjoyed steaks and full English breakfasts! The fitting of the Gastric band is as real as it gets without the cost or the pain, I now sleep better than ever and have become more focussed in my home life and work
Trevor has managed to make me relax and after each session I tend to enjoy 3 to 4 hours of relaxation when all the stress has been released.
One of the best feelings was to find an old pair of shorts which had at least 4 inches between the button and the hole, they actually fastened and I needed to buy a belt on holiday as they was falling down.
I believe if you relax while you are with Trevor the results will be really fantastic. Some of my hang ups were comfort eating to hide the loss of my dad as a child of 7, I found this hard to understand, but Trevor used a technique for treating PTSD and I quickly began to release the feelings of loss
Many Thanks Trev”
“ When I first saw Trevor's ad saying no food barred, I can make getting rid of excess weight easy, it sounded too good to be true is what I thought, looking through my portfolio of diets clubs to decide which shall I try again.!
So I made the call to Trevor and he talked me through what he did. To be honest it still seemed too good to be true, no hunger no food barred and lose weight. Really! Did I feel that I had been on a diet? NO I did not
Appointment day arrived and with anticipation and feeling a bit nervous I met Trevor for the first time. Trevor makes you feel at ease straight away, in a calm relaxed environment. The session began and it seemed to pass by in no time at all and I left thinking how's that going to work then.
The first week passed by and I did notice that my eating habits had changed but I was still eating normal food. There was no rush to buy diet food and no supermarket bill going through the roof!
I returned the following week to see Trevor, well how have you done he said? I was very happy to report I had got rid of 4lbs. Did I feel that I had been on a diet? NO I did not. There were no bad moods and no looking in the fridge gazing at the food I would like to eat.
Nine weeks later and one stone three pounds lighter! It?s so easy! My eating habits have changed for the better and there are no traumas if there?s an invite out or a special occasion to attend.
It was the best call I made and yes Trevor can make it easy.
Thanks very much Trevor”

“My name is Sue. I am 47 years old. I have been dieting for 30 years during which time I have increased my size by six dress sizes!
I have been a member of every national slimming group and though I have had some success with these It's now 8 months on and I have shed 4 stone in weight! groups I have been completely miserable whilst on a diet. Being restricted in what I was allowed to eat made me more food obsessed than ever and by 9pm every evening I would be scouring the fridge for chocolate, wine or crisps to satisfy both my cravings and feelings of deprivation. Of course as soon as I reached my target weight I would stop the diet and put all my weight back on and more besides.
I needed to break this cycle and address my food issues and that is why I signed up for the Weight Control Course with "Mind over Matter".
My hypnotherapy course took place in a safe small group environment. Trevor (Trev) was very welcoming and had a real understanding of the food issues of myself and the other group members. The sessions were extrememly relaxing. I have slept so much better since starting the course and as a result have felt less stressed and had so much more energy.
I have been delighted with the results of the course. In the first four weeks I shed an amazing 15lbs of weight and have continued to reduce my weight each week since. It's now 8 months on and I have shed 4 stone in weight! I am over the moon to report that this course has helped me learn how to "Eat to Live" instead of "Living to Eat". ”
“ Before I started the hypnotherapy for weight management course I had tried EVERYTHING going to lose weight and I would lose between 4-8 pounds in the first week, then nothing for weeks so would get fed up and put it all back on again! So I came with an open mind. I really believed that hypnotherapy worked but didn?t believe in myself that I would achieve the weight management goal I have spent years trying to unsuccessfully achieve. I really did not think I would ever be able to change my bad eating habits.
After 4 weeks of the weight management hypnotherapy I have got rid of 6 pounds without realising until I weighed myself at the end! And this time I really feel like I have changed my eating habits for good and am positive that I will achieve my weight goal-finally! I would encourage anybody and everybody to go on this course! ”
“ My name is Les and I have tried diets and reduced weight then put it back on I attended Trev?s 4 week course and found this way the easiest and have reduced weight by 7lbs over the sessions. I found the relaxation CDs very good. I will recommend the course to anyone who wishes to ?lose? weight. ”
“ I decided to try hypnosis for self esteem issues as I was struggling to come to terms with past issues. The techniques that Trevor used were highly successful, so much so, that after many failed attempts of losing weight I decided to try Trevor's hypnotherapy programme for this too.
I was surprised at just how easy this was and after doing Trevor's craving buster I didn't have any cravings for the things I used to like to eat for convenience, such as take aways.
It?s now 5 months on and I am delighted to say that I have shed 2 stone in weight. All without dieting or being deprived!
Trevor's a great guy, makes you feel welcome and relaxed and having used previous hypnotherapy methods with Trevor I would highly recommend him.
Many thanks to you Trevor for your help ”
“All my adult life I have been on some sort of Diet and have tried everything I have been to all the slimming clubs usually losing a few pounds to start off with but soon getting bored of eating the same thing and putting the weight back on again.
I had a problem with sweet things I always had to have a pudding even if I was full and in the afternoon always got a sweet craving and I am in control not the other way round! had chocolate, biscuits whatever was convenient to satisfy my cravings thus sabotaging any diet I was on.
I saw Trevor's advert and thought I would give it a try I was very sceptical and had seen hypnotists on the TV and thought it would not work but was I surprised. I had weight control sessions on a one to one basis with Trevor.
& After my first session I felt relaxed and the experience was not what I imagined, during I was aware of my surroundings and fully awake but Trevor's voice suggested to me that I would no longer crave sweet things, I felt like I had strength and will power to say no to the foods that were making me put on weight. The next day was the test and I could not believe it when I actually did not want anything sweet and when the guys at work tempted me with biscuits in the afternoon I actually could say no.
I just feel I have extra help with my willpower and can honestly say since my Hypnotherapy I have reduced my weight by over a stone and continue to feel strong and can say no, don?t get me wrong I sometimes may have a pudding but I am in control not the other way round.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to lose weight I am no longer on a diet after 30 years of trying and I?m reducing my weight by at least a pound every week without trying. ”
“Since meeting Trev my total outlook on food has changed dramatically. I no longer feel like food is the enemy! the programme is easy, uncomplicated, common sense.
There is no calorie counting, point checking or sins to avoid, there is not even a set of scary weighing scales in the building!!
Hypnosis is very relaxing (if you allow it to be), and taps into your inner mind laying down simple but effective ground rules. It is not a competition, it is your own journey. All I would say is go with an open positive mind and allow Trev to do the rest, you will enjoy it and hopefully meet new friends along your journey to success.”
“Over approximately 20 years I have tried many diets and although they worked I ended up putting on what I lost and more. I developed the mindover-matter website and therefore read all the material that Trevor supplied and wondered if it would work for me. I had my concerns as I consider myself to be strong willed and assumed incapable of being manipulated in anyway whatsoever but given that in later years I have struggled to stay on a diet decided I had nothing to lose.
So far I have attended 4 sessions and surprised and amazed to have lost 2 stone in a relatively short time, this may seem excessive but I was and still am 20+ stone!! I achieved this by seemingly making no changes to my eating and drinking habits. I also found that I no longer craved the bowl of peanuts and pint of cider which I use to enjoy on many an evening.
As a bonus the sessions themselves had an added benefit in that afterwards I felt more relaxed and de-stressed. I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Trevor to anyone wishing to lose weight.
Update: It is a number of months since I completed the course and I have continued to lose a further 2 stone. I have achieved this with seemingly no effort on my part but my eating habits have changed and in doing so feel generally a lot healthier.”
“I have been on the course and i must say I have really enjoyed it. In the four weeks I have lost 1 stone 2 lbs but I don't feel like I have been on a diet. I have ate everything I wanted and still got these excellent results. The relaxation is really good and Trevor is really nice and welcoming and made me feel at ease. I am very happy with my results and think this is going to continue until I reach my target weight.”
“I have struggled with my weight for years and have been a typical "Yo Yo" dieter, losing weight and feeling good and then putting it back on again which left me miserable and depressed.
Since going on the course with Mind Over Matter I have been very happy with the results and have reduced have reduced my weight by over 20 lbs my weight by over 20 lbs. I have managed to get my weight issues into perspective, my approach to dieting has changed completely and now I eat more sensibly and only when I am hungry.
The guilt I had associated with what I considered to be forbidden foods has completely gone and now I find I don't crave such foods as I know I can have what I want. Losing the guilt has made such an impact on my life (guilt can be very heavy!) I feel much more positive and happy.
For anybody considering going on the course - I would say, keep an open mind and give it a go, you have nothing to lose only weight!”
“I had been trying for long time to lose weight but with no success. I was considering having the stomach by pass operation when I saw Trev?s advert in the local paper.
I had never been hypnotised before, but I was put at ease and enjoyed the experience. I attended four sessions and have been losing 1lb each week without really thinking about dieting.
I have now lost 1 stone and steadily continuing to lose weight. It certainly beats having to take the extra vitamins and minerals and blood tests I would need had I undergone the operation.
I have recommended a friend who has attended the sessions and is steadily losing weight also. I have no reservations about recommending the weight loss programme.”
