I did go to the 1.5 hr. consultation in Boise. The interviewer/counselor did not strike me as a professional hypnotist as much as a salesperson with a quota. The interview was probing and designed to make me feel less than worthy if I wasn't willing to sacrifice all to accomplish what she saw as my goals. Of course she implied that all my issues in life would be resolved if I were to lose the recommended amount of weight. I was tempted to ask her if it would get me back the $2,400.00 it was going to cost me for the 9 month program? Let's face it. It's a business. They have to make money to stay in business. I don't fault them for that. However, we are not selling used cars here. We are dealing with, what could potentially be a very sensitive subject with a long history of complex emotions. When I did not sign on that day, after a bit of applied pressure, I received a phone call with a message leaving details as to why I should lose weight and repeated the number as if she was telling me something I didn't know. Again in a letter one week later, reminding me of all the the reasons I need to do this for myself. I have been looking for a car recently and to tell you the truth I felt an unsettling resemblance in style. To put it plainly. If I did have an open mind when I first arrived I was definitely less than enthusiastic by the time I left. Pleasantly surprised, I was left with a new resolve. To enjoy life, forget about the extra pounds and quit defining myself by the numbers on the scale. It will get you nowhere except stuck in an 1.5 hour appointment with a semi-professional that would have you believe engaging their services is the end all, be all of human existence. Thank You Positive Changes Your Great!

I have been overweight since being a teenager and have spent a tremendous amount of money on numerous weight loss programs. I could intellectualize everything I needed to do to lose weight...exercise, healthy eating, etc...but could not consistently do so, no matter how much and how often I tried. I continued to get heavier and heavier and could see no end in sight. Finally, I decided to give it one more try...something that addressed my mind and the reasons for my obesity.

From the start, this program has been different. There are no prescribed diets, weigh-ins, etc. that are a part of every other program. This just deals with the subconscious mind and what needs to happen to change the habits and patterns that have existed in the conscious mind for years. For me, it has worked. I have lost 130 pounds so far and am only 5 pounds away from my goal. I have gone from a size 26 to a size 10 and feel healthy and alive. I am 100% confident that this change is forever and look forward to the rest of my life. I no longer wake up and think "it is another day and you are so fat." I now wake up and am thankful that I am a thin and healthy person.

The hypnotists at PCH have been very professional, good listeners and especially skilled at creating a program that is specific to my needs. I am so thankful. I also am pleased with the entire staff and program. They go out of their way to make me feel welcome and appreciated.

My name is Frank Estrada. I live in Portland OR. I am 56 years old and have been a cab driver for 14 years. I also have been overweight for the last 25.
Nine months ago I came to Positive Changes Hypnosis. Since then I have lost 65 pounds and 12 waist inches in the most amazing experience of my life. I have lost pounds before with different diets and they all worked, as long as I battled and stayed on the diet. But the weight always came back with extra pounds when I stopped dieting.
With Positive Changes Hypnosis it has been a change on my life style through proper nutrition and exercise, a natural way of life without the cravings, something that it was hard for me to imagine before. Being a diabetic is now easy to properly control my sugar levels, blood pressure and cholesterol without any medications, and that is a big reward for me.
Now I go through life feeling better about myself, staying active and enjoying the new me. My family and friends have been very supportive and amazed how I did it.
I recommend Positive Changes Hypnosis because it works. The staff is very knowledgeable and professional, which has been essential to earn my trust to get the results that I am now enjoying.

I came to Positive Changes when I was at the end of my wits with my weight. I have tried EVERYTHING only to gain all of my weight back plus some. My evaluator was kind and sympathetic and I felt she really cared. I was offered a program for 9 months that has been the best thing I have ever done for myself. Was it expensive? Not when you look at how much I was spending on keeping myself overweight. I know this will be a lifetime change for me and I couldn't be happier! I sleep better, naturally make better food choices, and I have lost 50 pounds so far! My life has changed for the better and I am never looking back. I HIGHLY recommend Positive Changes Hypnosis if you are serious about making change. It really does work!

I went in for a consultation recently regarding a non-typical issue. Not surprisingly, I was geared to a program for a different (more common) issue. They start off with a "take away" - they make it clear that "they" choose who is a good client. I knew this was a ploy but went ahead.

I've had plenty of sales experience in the past, and while they try to make it seem like a "soft sell", it's not. I felt extremely pressured to make a decision right then, and I usually need to think things over when it is something expensive (to me, $1377 for a 3 month program was expensive).

They were willing to do a payment plan, but their "no risk guarantee" is a CROCK! You are not going to know at the end of one session if this will work or not. If they had said, "try it for 2 weeks" or 4 weeks and if you don't feel it is working, then you can get a refund, I would have done it. But one session does not make it "no risk".

I have no doubt this works for some people. And, as the evaluator said, you do have to listen to the cds, etc, which makes sense. Hypnosis is rarely effective with just one session, so those who assume they just need to go in once and they'll be "cured", will of course not be happy.

After my consultation, and reading the reviews here, I am certainly more skeptical than ever. I am especially bothered by the review of the person who claims to be a former employee. If their hypnotists are not well-trained and certified, then this company is not only committing fraud, they should be sued, as they have no business using people who have not been appropriately trained and certified.

For anyone considering this program, be proactive and demand to see the hypnotist's credentials (ie, where they were trained, and proof of certification). If they are unwilling to show you that, then do NOT spend your money on this company.

For me at this point, I am highly skeptical and choose to not spend $1377 on this.

I paid $2400 in Oregon and was promised a one-on-one counselor relationship (I inquired about this at my consultation). Although I have had some success (25lbs loss, water drinking, & better food choices), I was very disappointed to be passed from counselor to counselor. For some reason everyone leaves this branch. Do to class cancelations, schedule changes, and staff issues my 9 month program has taking me a year to complete. I honestly could not recommend this program to anyone and that saddens me as I had such positive energy and high hopes going into it. Thank you!

Success is in the mind and soul and with the help of PC and the great staff I was able to lose my excess body that has been following me around for along time. I look forward to my Saturday visits with PC. I feel like family and know that I will be greeted with a smile and even hugs and always a friendly attitude from all that work there. If you are having trouble with the program they are always willing to listen and help in anyway to get you headed in the right direction. My personal experience has been wonderful. Everyone I have come into contact with has been VERY helpful and fun! I would give not only the program a very high rating, but the staff in the front office and the people behind the scenes a high rating. Now adays generousity is a major plus in a company and I have found that with the staff at PC. Thanks gang for all you have helped me with !!! Love ya! Debbi

Pros: GREAT staff

First I need to address the ex-employee..we were told that the sessions were being recorded. We all knowthat someone could say something "inappropriate" happened in my private session. Unfortunatly their are people out there that would do that.
The cost is so worth it, I guess because my health is worth it. I am a struggling female trying to make a living, and I was able to do this because they worked it out on payments that I could budget in. Ask a hospital to do that for you when you go in for a stomach job. And because you get the surgery, doesn't mean you'll stay thin. You need to have your thought processed re-aligned to start eating correctly. I'm closed to 60 and I found out things about foods and vitamins I never knew. I lost 88lbs and the only reason I didn't lose more is because I have stopped exercising due to injuries. But I'm not gaining either.
I feel very strongly about this process, because I tried everthing except surgery, and and that was never an option for me.

Pros: Eat healthy and stay healthy

Cons: NOTHING, it's all good

I was given a free consultation---it takes only an hour,not 3. I don't know of many programs which give you cost figures without face-to-face consultations. there was very little pressure and you can cancel after 1 session if you feel it won't work for you. I lost 65 pounds over 9 months and regained a lot of self-confidence I had surrendered. It's easier to remain stable as you are used to making good decisions about food and beverages=not losing weight with portion controlled pre-packaged food and/or embarrassing weigh-ins. I think people owe it to themselves to check out the program before bashing it & listening to disgruntled former employees. it works!!!

Cons: Not close to my home

I think it's horrible that so many people are saying bad things about this company. I went to Positive Changes and had great success. Yes, it's a little spendy but it works, so it's well worth it. From all these reviews it sounds like a bunch of upset employees who are unhappy. I lost almost 40 pounds in about 6 months. I saw many people every time I went into my session who also said they were getting great success. If someone wasn't getting the results it was generally because they weren't following the program. It's not a magic pill. But it's the closest thing I've found. It changed my whole view on food. I now desire to eat healthy instead of wishing I would. I honestly would chose to eat an apple over chocolate and I never could of said that before.

I appreciate all the negative responses for Positive Changes. I was thinking of going to the Beaverton location (since I work down the street from that location) and just seeing what it was all about but not now! I wanted to know how much money I was looking at spending if I did that and since it would cost me a few grand with possibly no sucess story, I'm glad I found all you great reviewers to tell me! I will let one of my family members NOT to look into Positive Changes. They may end up Negatively Stuck! As for the one and only positive review, I too don't believe that review. Possibly an actor that was hired for the commercials was given a few bucks under the table to write that review(?).

I am a highly educated woman with a degree in psychology and also law. I agree with what the previous woman/former employee said about the insults and degrading way employees were required to talk to clients to mess with their heads to get them into the clinic AT ALL COSTS.
I had called the first time about a year ago and was put off by the pushy way I was handled and not given ANY info over the phone and I was even told I was not committed to my weight loss JUST BECAUSE I did not wish to be forced into making an appointment on a whim without any information. I tried to call back last week believing that perhaps it had to do with the first individual I had contact with last year.....this is what happened: When I called, I tried with everything in me to ascertain the amount of cost involved in treatments for weight loss only to find that there was an avoidant answer for every question I asked, including being told I could not even receive a GENERAL idea or ballpark of costs involved. When I said that I was not going to waste 3 hours of my business consulting time to come in only to find out that the costs were cost prohibitive, I was told by the representative, "YOU ARE JUST NOT COMMITTED ENOUGH TO YOURSELF AND YOUR WEIGHTLOSS GOALS YET TO TAKE THAT IMPORTANT FIRST STEP AND COME IN FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT" ;followed by "WHEN YOU HAVE DECIDED YOU WANT YOUR BODY BACK AND TO LOOSE WEIGHT, YOU WILL MAKE THAT APPOINTMENT".
I have worked in gym membership sales in the past as well as having joined a professional dating service and KNOW THE PLOYS USED to get clients to sign up and when I called the representative on her choice of words and manipulation, she tried to accuse ME of insulting her!! What nerve on her part! I am now educated to me an attorney and that is the consulting work that I was not about to take 3 hours away from at the cost of $765 to me just to find out that the weight loss services provided was too excessive of an expense to justify taking the time out of my schedule with clients to make the appointment.....ALL I ASKED WAS A PRICE RANGE BALLPARK, NOT THE ACTUAL PRICE!! When I told her I would NOT be making the appointment without knowing if it was even worth my time to do so, she told me, "YOU ARE JUST NOT COMMITTED TO YOUR WEIGHTLOSS OR YOURSELF".
I am not a foul mouthed woman, but it was everything in me not to say some foul words to her. The representative also told me that the Beaverton location WAS THE ONLY LOCATION IN BOTH WASHINGTON AND OREGON, which is why I did the searches that lead me to this site. I was merely trying to see if there was indeed only ONE location in the Pacific Northwest.
My eyes were wide open when the girl below who says she used to work there stated that they tape clients without their permission....OH MY GOD, WHY IS NO ONE FILING A LAW SUIT???? Sounds like it would be easy to form a class action suit on this place!! I want to say THANK YOU to the former employee who took the time to write the review below mine about what really goes on behind the scenes at this place! I AM GOING TO AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS!

I do not need to feel worse or for that matter emotionally abused because of GREED on the part of the owners of this franchise.

I do not need to feel worse or for that matter emotionally abused because of GREED on the part of the owners of this franchise.

Pros: NONE

Cons: HORRIBLE, INSULTING CONTROLLING PEOPLE

.

This is the Best thing I have ever done for myself!!!!
I have done the weight loss program...... lost 73lbs. 12 more than I even imagined!!!!
I then came back and did the quit smoking program ............. within the first 3 sessions I QUIT SMOKING!!!!!
HOW can I put a dollar bill on saving MY life???????
OH MY GOSH I could NOT put a price tag on MY health?????
Life gives you 1 ONLY 1 chance at it This was ALL NATURAL!!!
Walking in to the center I FELT instant care, My appointments have NEVER been rescheduled because I was late. ( have been twice) I was always accommodated.
"HENCE" the name I am a MUCH more POSITIVE CHANGED woman!!! For ME this was the BEST decision I could have EVER made!

Pros: From the beginning to the end, amazing! They made this affordable 4 me.

Cons: The last session.... I wish I could have stayed forever. I want MORE Hypnosis!!!!

Take it from me, I used to work here! First of all, they don't give prices over the phone because the programs are way too much money! You can expect to pay up to $2477.00 for a program, yeah that's right! The hypnotists are not trained and most not certified. The evaluators are NOTcertified and NOT trained to do anything but make you cry and take your money. Now don't get me wrong I did see some success with the clients but the ratio for success is not in the clients favor! Save yourself some money and a lot of wasted time, let this be your very last resort!

The ads say you will "melt off" weight. What a load of BS. I feel foolish that I fell for this. First you are "evaluated" by a sales person who goes through a script with questions designed to make you feel awful about yourself and ready to hand them the $2,500 the program costs. Then you get some CD's to listen to at home. You also get "personal" sessions with "counselors." One of them admitted to me that her previous job was selling water filtration systems, nothing to do with counseling. There are also a few classes with info that you probably already knew, such as the startling information that margaritas have lots of calories.

When the program doesn't work, the counselors play hardball. You are not trying hard enough. It's your fault. They will tell you the people that "melted off" the weight were highly motivated and listened to the tapes an average of five times per day. This probably does work for some people. So does Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Dr. Atkins et al. But do NOT believe the ad claims about how easy this is. There is no way to melt off weight! Don't be fooled.
