At the time of signing up for the Thomas Institute, we had looked at several places to get our hypnosis education. In looking back, we could not have picked a better school to attend. Cynthia’s positive approach and her setting up good and realistic boundaries was very important for us. In the future, we feel this course will benefit both of us as we look forward to using what we have learned together to benefit others.” Cathy and Roger Fontaine

“I think Cynthia is an excellent instructor and would not hesitate to recommend her to others. Her sense of humor and down-to-earth attitude made the class fun. Her extensive experience and enthusiasm made me feel confident that I’d be a practicing hypnotherapist by the end of the course!” Betsy Burke, RN

“Cindy Thomas has an in depth and broad based knowledge of hypnosis. Her personality and excellent teaching skills make this class an invaluable tool for anyone involved in human development and/or personal growth.” Lewis Wittner, physical therapist

"I enjoyed the entire class especially the blend of education regarding medical type hypnosis, stage hypnosis and general wellness applications. The ability to practice on one another was great. I was very impressed with the diversity of participants and background interests for this class. For me that was most refreshing. Class instruction and process were very good. Never overwhelming, never to fast and never inadequate or to brief.” Daniel Ober, D.O.

“Initially I dreaded the week-end times, but as the class began I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Cindy followed the rules of student comfort carefully which was very important for an all day class. Cindy is an enthusiastic teacher.” Nadine Wheeler

“This class has been informative for both personal and professional reasons. Professionally, I think it is nearly impossible to number the ways these techniques can be used in the maternal/child nursing field.” Kate Henderson, RN

Cindy’s experiences certainly provided us with the best way to handle situations that may come up. She has a broad, in-depth knowledge of the material and kept the class interesting and fun.” Cathy Krzyek

“I really enjoyed the class. The information was well put together and at a great speed for understanding.” Lauren Blaakman, RN

"Cynthia, I want you to know how you have made a big difference in my life.  It makes over 5 years that I quit smoking thanks to you.  I was a very heavy smoker, I smoked 2 1/2 to 3 packs a day and I was working 2 jobs.  I would not have quit if it was not for you.  I tried the patch, the gum and even the pill...none of it worked.  The first time I went home searching for cigarettes in my coats and pocket book.  I did not smoke any, but I knew I needed to go back to you.  After our second session I walked out of there like I had never smoked in my life.  No anxiety what so ever.  It was a miracle!  I want to thank you for that."  Arlene Beaudoin

“A note of appreciation...I smoked for 45 years, 3 packs a day. Still not smoking after seven months!” Michael James

“Thank you for not only helping me get over my fear of flying, but for opening a new world for me. I accepted an incredible job in San Francisco. If it weren’t for you I would not only have been unable to get there; I wouldn’t have made it to the interview in New York!”  Julie Chrissis

“Thanks to you I finally quit smoking after 55 years  .It’s a miracle! I had tried everything but nothing worked for me. I am so glad I came to you for a private session. My doctor can’t believe it!” Lorraine Foristal

“I feel so good about my sessions with you and seeing the changes you have helped me make in my life. I have become more motivated than ever before. My eating habits have changed for the better and my doctors are so impressed by what I have accomplished. I wish I had come sooner.” Leah Platt

“It works!  I smoked for more than half my life and never at any time tried to quit.  At first I thought hypnosis could not help.  How surprised and pleased I was that I had no craving to smoke...physical or mental!”  Thomas Morris

“I smoked for 14 years.  Cynthia helped me to stop smoking in only one session!  It's now been over seven years - smoke free!”  Carol Wells

"I greatly appreciate what hypnosis has done for me.  It was great to be able to kick the smoking habit again in one session with no desire to smoke. Excellent - reaffirmed my belief in hypnosis."  Michael Clark

"I've lost 7 lbs. and am continuing to lose.  The first couple of weeks were slow, but then I added more walking, eating salads every day and a small sensible meal for dinner.  If I don't walk I feel guilty.  I want to walk more and more everyday. My pant's are feeling baggier, I don't crave or desire anything to speak of and if I want a treat, I only have a spoonful of ice cream and not the whole bowl!!  I'm also more conscious of the ingredients in the food I buy and I'm feeling great!"  Shirley LePine

"Hypnosis kept me on track and prevented me from having a relapse.  7 years smoke free through Thomas Hypnosis!"  Robin E. Dame

"Just a quick thanks for the session on Monday.  I am doing well and am amazed that I have been motivated to do things I haven't done in many a moon.  I have been exercising, walking and eating very healthy, smaller amounts of food.  I will keep you posted. (I have even been able to go to events and not eat like a crazy woman!)"  Mary C.

UPDATE  - "Cindy, I saw you a few months ago for weight loss and the last time I emailed you with an update I had lost 7 lbs.  Now, I'm proud to tell you I've lost 21 lbs."  Shirley LePine

"My first step to a healthier lifestyle was to visit The Thomas Institute of Hypnosis for smoking cessation.  I had smoked for 27 years and tried various treatments to quit without success.  Now, 7 years later, I am still smoke free.  I had my last cigarette prior to arriving at the Institute.  After one treatment I experienced no cravings and felt full of energy. Thank you to Cynthia Kile Thomas for giving me my life back.  I have returned to the Institute as another step towards a healthier lifestyle (weight management).  I can not recommend the treatment or the Institute highly enough."  Denise Colby, Merrimack, NH

"I would say, After 15 years of being afraid to fly, I decided to try hypnosis. After 1 session with Cindy, I was able to fly with almost no anxiety to Washington D.C. On the way home, I was so relaxed, I fell asleep!  Thank you Cindy! It’s a great feeling of freedom to have overcome this fear."   Nikki Murphy

"Cindy, I'm still, or shall I say, will not ever again chew nicotine gum"  Cappy Anderson

"Hello Cynthia,  I just thought I would take a minute to let you know that I am still amongst the ranks of the non-smokers.  You may recall you treated me last July 8, so in six days I 
will reach the nine month landmark. 
I think the suggestion of looking at the color red was instrumental in the overall efficacy of the treatment.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart."  Lionel F. (Dag) Saunders

"I just wanted to thank you for all the help that you have given me,  With the combination of weight watchers and a few hypnosis sessions I have lost 70 pounds in an 8 month period.  Now I hit the gym 3 - 4 times a week for better than an hour.  I didn't know I had it in me, gym rat...who knew?  I have tried to lose weight many times before with no success.  The hypnosis really put me over the top.  Again, many thanks to you."   Scott C.

"Hi Cynthia. I just wanted to take this moment to let you know that  since our hypnosis meeting, I have personally put just over 1000 miles on my motorcycle. It's been a steady progress in the making and I now drive on the highway!!!  I want to thank you so much for the things you said to me. Every time I would "slip" into the fear zone while riding I would pull your voice into my head to listen for positive reinforcement. IT HELPED!!  I love reaching my goal and personal achievement with your help. I will highly recommend anyone that needs
 your service!!  Thank You!!"      Deb Dube

"Hi Cynthia, still not smoking after 8 weeks. Thanks again."  John Leonard 

"One month and going strong.  Thanks so much!"  C.K. 

"I found my session with Cindy very helpful in getting me started on my quest to start driving the highway again.  It helped me to reframe my thinking about this and to begin to try this. Throughout the session I felt comfortable and safe. Thanks again for helping me to get started." Sue G.
