“I have to say this is the most rewarding experience I have ever gone through in my life, because after smoking for 50 years, I never thought I would ever quit. After two vascular surgeons scared the — out of me. I got in touch with Dr. Bob Levenson and he is the most kind, loving man I have ever known. He has in 3 treatments got me to quit. I don’t know how to thank you Bob, you’re the greatest. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, for saving my legs and my LIFE.”

Kim Levenson

Kim has 20 years of experience as a professional hypnotherapist. Her warmth and sensitive nature make it easy to talk to her about even the most discrete matters. Her expertise includes stop smoking, weight control and phobias with a special interest in childbirth and sports performance.

Her interest in the power of the mind began at the age of 7. She had a severe case of eczema – scratching her arms to the point they were cracked, bleeding and raw. Her mother sought ordinary medical treatment. Kim was prescribed cortisone but with no success. In desperation, Kim’s mother brought her to Dr. Brian Gorman, a medical doctor, who used hypnosis to treat psycho-somatic illnesses.  It was the key to her recovery.
