Client Testimonials


I met Gilles several years ago, as the result of a referral from a colleague of mine. He had been treated by Gilles himself and we discussed the potential of success with Gilles also treating me for substance abuse. At that time I was not convinced I needed or wanted such treatment but thought it was worth exploring.

Here I am about three years later knowing if nothing else, I wanted a change in my life. Although skeptical, after just two sessions, I like the new person I am and appreciate immensely what Gilles has done to help me get back some form of control and normality.

I have struggled for several years with over eating and being over weight. I had my first session with Gilles about 2.5 months ago and my life has changed drastically. The weight has come off easily and I have enjoyed the process. I feel very confident now and it’s definitely noticeable to those around me.

In 2.5 months I’ve lost 17 pounds and I’m now just 8 pounds away from reaching my ideal body weight and weight loss goal. I had my second session a few days ago, and I feel like it will be easy to achieve my goals now. The most exciting part to me is how confident I feel that the weight will stay off for good.

The techniques that Gilles used made it very simple to follow and understand. I was very sceptical about hypnotherapy but it has been very effective for me. I would recommend Gilles to anyone who wants to lose weight and take back the control of their life. You are cheating yourself by living over weight.

I went to the Hypnotherapy Centre as I was having a lot of trouble with anxiety. I must preface by saying that I have tried all kinds of other therapies, but none of them quite worked for me. From my first email, to booking my appointments, to sitting down for my first initial session, I was treated with respect and professionalism. I knew immediately that I was in good hands. During my sessions, I felt amazing…more relaxed than I have ever felt in my life. It felt like I was only there for about 10 to 15 minutes, but in reality I had been there for one hour. I can recommend the Hypnotherapy Centre to you with no reservations or regrets…in fact, I have recommended it to several of my friends. It can and will have a huge impact on your life.

Since attending the London Hypnotherapy Centre, my relationship with food has completely changed. I still can have stresses in my day, but I have no urge to eat more than my 3 meals a day. I’ve put myself as a priority, lost over 30 pounds already and I feel great!

I went to see Gilles at London Hypnotherapy after winning a contest on FM96 to quit smoking. I have quit three times before and was hoping this would be it for me. I was hesitant, thinking how is this going to help me stop smoking. After sitting down with Gilles and talking about how the brain and sub conscious work I thought lets get this started. After the session I didn’t even crave a smoke. it has been two months that I am smoke free.

When I became pregnant with my 3rd child, I decided to have a home birth. This meant that there would be no epidural or pain relief available. I knew I would need something, so I tried hypnosis. I underwent six sessions and it helped me have an amazing birthing experience! Not only did it LARGELY reduce the pain, it helped me to stay calm and relaxed and able to let my body do what it was meant to do! Much gratitude to Gilles Bernard from the London hypnotherapy centre for teaching me this valuable life skill!

I have had a severe driving phobia for nearly ten years. It was so severe I hadn’t been behind the wheel since I was 16, and I am now 25. I went to see Gilles May 9 2012 hoping to address this fear. This past Tuesday, June 26 I passed my G2 driving test! I couldn’t have even imagined myself in this position two months ago. I feel completely relaxed and calm in a vehicle, and my driving has improved drastically over the past month and a half. Thanks to my session, I feel less anxiety overall in other aspects of my work and personal life as well. This was an overall life improving experience for me. I have recommended this therapy to numerous family members and friends.

Over two years ago I decided to make an appointment with Gillies to help me deal with my anger issues so I could live a life with no meds to help me relax from severe panic attacks.

My life with alcohol, especially over the last few years, has been a self destructive nightmare which I couldn’t get myself out of. Thanks to your help with hypnotherapy, that struggle is over and I am in control and have my own life back. I thank myself pretty much everyday for contacting you, it was a great decision and the best thing that I could have done to help myself.

I smoked a pack a day, every day, for almost 40 years. I tried every way I knew how to quit smoking. The longest I lasted was 2 weeks and always suffered withdrawal. I did a double session with Gilles, walked out the door, and haven’t had a smoke since. That was 15 months ago. WOOHOO!
~ Mike Couture Strathroy, ON


I had battled debilitating panic attacks for many years. After trying several different prescribed medications that resulted in a wide range of side affects, I decided on trying a “drug free” approach. I experienced a distinct improvement after my first hypnosis session, and after four sessions am free from the attacks altogether.

“For many years now the Olympic teams and Pro athletes have been using the tool of hypnosis to gain the mental edge on their opponents.

Research by Carol Ginandes at Harvard Medical School showed that hypnosis increased the rate of recovery on patients who had undergone surgery.

Another study is cited where fractured ankles healed in 70% of the normal time when the patient used hypnosis. Again, this was compared to a control group under the same circumstances, but without hypnosis.
