I have gone to Robert Smith for over 12 years. His understanding, warmth and compassion definitely helped me get through the most difficult times in my life. This included the death of my husband, Mother and multiple surgeries within a 10 year period.

He enabled me to view my life optimistically. Metaphorically I now live in a house with open windows, enjoying beauty and fresh air. I have found a passion for reading and oil painting. I can honestly say that I enjoy every day and live my life to the fullest. I am no longer held down with unrealistic expectations.

I do believe I owe this to Robert Smith’s exceptional guidance

Dear Robert, I wanted to take a moment and thank you for all the support you provided during one of the most difficult times in my life. I felt lost and I wasn’t sure what my place was anymore and you helped me figure it out. Words can not express my gratitude as l continue to take things one day at a time and not feel overwhelmed by all the emotions. Thank You.

In my experience, I have found relaxation exercises and self hypnosis to be key elements to successful treatment for individuals suffering from various stress related issues including sleep disturbances and pain. The combination of information and application in this format demonstrates Robert’s mastery of these strategies. His soothing voice and knowledgeable approach presents patients with a confident and gentle guide to clinical improvement. I strongly recommend these CD’s for anyone who experiences problems with stress, insomnia, or pain.
