As a family, we have been listening to Rick Collingwood's "Happiness and Self Esteem' hypnotherapy CD. I cannot emphasise enough the change that has occurred in the way we relate to each other. For such a small investment in time and money, the rewards are considerable.
We have since purchased other CD's from the range, and are experiencing positive results - my daughter stopped biting her nails after listening to the 'Stop Nail Biting' CD ONCE; my son sleeps better now thanks to the 'Imsomnia' CD. I have no hesitation in recommending the series wholeheartedly. ENJOY!
Good morning Ryan,
It was really good to talk to you this morning. You gave me some direction on how to use the Hypnosis CDs I have bought. I have already had success, and look forward to some more remarkable results.
I have bought Mind-Body Healing, A Youthful You, and Insomnia Cure. Each of these have helped in different ways.
As soon as I started using the Insomnia Cure my sleeping improved dramatically. Instead of tossing and turning all night and getting about two and a half hours sleep per night several nights per week I am sleeping deeply, and for longer periods of time. It is rare not to have six or seven hours of refreshing sleep each night now.
The changes I have noticed from using A Youthful You are interesting. I have started embracing technology with an attitude of `what the heck, give it a go`. This has meant that I am experimenting with programmes on the computer that had me petrified before, making the excuse that I will never need to use that programme, so lets not fiddle with it. I have enjoyed that change. I have started to learn a language just for the fun of it. I cant wait to see what other changes this CD unlocks. I may even end up taking that hiking trip in Nepal that I have always wanted to do!
The Mind-Body Healing CD has helped with my gall bladder problem of twenty eight years. After playing it just a few times I woke up one morning with the overwhelming feeling that I would not have another attack. Of course, I was sceptical. I had controlled the attacks for many years by modifying my diet, and by doing a regular gall bladder cleanse, but the condition had deteriorated to where I was having weekly or, at best, monthly attacks. My latest ultra-sound had showed that the gall bladder was packed with stones, so to feel hopeful was at odds with what the tests were showing. However, I persisted, did a final radical cleanse, and havent had an attack for the past three months.
I believe that these CDs remove the mental and emotional blocks we put in the way of getting well. Sometimes it is not possible to remove these blocks on our own and we need practical help.
Once again, thanks for the information this morning, Ryan. If any of what I have said is useful to anyone else please feel free to quote me!
I thinkI can call you dear as you have solved my deprivation of sleep for many months . I was privileged to find your tape cd where I shop and it was terrific I managed 3 hrs in bed the rest I spent on reclining chair as I have been doing these past months .
I have many health problems and have been on medication for years . Thankyou for your soothing voice I now have no worries am I going to sleep???
Yours sincerely Dorothy C
Dear Dr. Collingwood,
One of your former hypnosis students who is currently studying a Masters degree at USQ has informed me that you have produced a disk (distinct from the very effective disk for dealing with insomnia) containing just theta rhythm. I was wondering if this is commercially available. I use hypnosis a lot in my pain management practice (I find it an effective analgesic, and a great accelerant for standard CBT), and I am always on the lookout for useful tools.

I have recently begun using your CD for insomnia, with great results! It is amazing how a good nights sleep can improve the quality of your life. I am interested in speaking with someone on selecting other CD’s in the series that might further benefit me. The retail outlet where I purchased the CD, while friendly were unable to help with any inquiries. Their only assistance in the process selection was these are popular. Can you advise where in metro Perth I might get some further assistance with product selection.
Attention: Dr Rick Collingwood
It was nice talking to you this morning. I got a surprise to hear you were in Perth, I thought you were in Brisbane. I work at a Psychiatric Clinic (Osborne Park) and had asked one of our psychologists a few weeks ago if she could recommend someone who did hypnotherapy. I was desperate to find someone to help me with my insomnia. I went to a private psychologist for a couple of sessions and she taped a session for me (which was nothing like your CD’s I can tell you!). I stopped going due to the expense, and then I found my old CD of yours on weight, I think I got that one through mail order a few years ago. I then thought I would try and find out if you had done one on insomnia. I rang Directory Assistance to see if I could get your number and they gave me the Hypnotist Society in Brisbane. (They didn’t know a thing about you, so they said). I was at a complete loss as to what I would do next, and then I rang Crystal Reflections at Hillarys here in Perth, and asked them if they had heard of you. Low and behold they not only did know you, but they had a CD on insomnia. You can imagine how I felt when they gave me a brochure and we could contact you right here in Perth!! I felt like it was Christmas. As I told you this morning we now have seven CD’s in total. Thank you so much for sending me the updated CD on weight control, I look forward to receiving it in the mail.

I have had multi faceted benefits from your Insomnia CD and now I am feeling great. I have been taking painkillers for Arthritis and Sleeping Tablets before bed for many years, this has now stopped. Since I started listening to your CD I have a much deeper and longer sleep and wake up feeling happy and refreshed, I also have a more pleasant and better dream quality.
Just a note to let you know how fabulous your programs are. I have been suffering from insomnia for about seven years or more. I had tried everything including sleeping tablets, valerian, melatonin, acupuncture, naturopathy, homeopathy, allergy treatments, magnetic sleep system, Niagara therapy massage bed - you name it, I have tried it - and all to no avail. My problem was that I could not get to sleep, and if I did happen to get to sleep on the odd occasion, I would then wake up and just lie there all night. Besides being frustrating it was exhausting and everything and everybody in my life suffered.
About four weeks ago, I purchased your “Beat Insomnia” CD and within two weeks I was sleeping soundly every night. I then purchased your “Creating Abundance” CD, and within one week I had been offered a World Trip, paid for by my workplace. These two CD’s have just been “magic”. I thoroughly recommend them.
I had been getting progressively worse in my sleeping patterns over the past 2 and a half years to the point that it would be fantastic if I got 3 hours sleep every other night with some nights no sleep at all. I was barely functioning in my day to day routine. I was having extremely bazaar thoughts and I wouldn’t go to bed at night knowing I wouldn’t be able to sleep. The doctor prescribed light non-addictive sleeping tablets. I did take them but with only taking half I felt hung-over the next day.
I was seeing a spiritual healer and put me onto your CD. I was skeptical about hypnosis but was desperate to get off the sleeping tablets so I gave it a go because I had nothing to loose. It did take a couple of weeks to really kick in but now I sleep better than I did before my problem started and wake up feeling awake and not just rolling out of bed. I stopped taking the sleeping tablet within 3 days of starting the program.
I am almost at the end of the required period but am feeling fantastic. Now I feel like I’m alive and can motivate myself to do more during the day. I cannot praise Rick Collingwood’s CD enough. I thank you and my girlfriend for the referral. As result of my lack of energy I now have a lot of weight to loose and my blood pressured has gone through the roof. I have to loose 12 kg in an attempt to reduce my blood pressure. I have just ordered the Weight Loss CD and the Mind Body Healing. I have 30 kg to loose and I will let you know how I go. Like a lot of people, I have tried a lot of different diets but to no avail at keeping the weight off.
My Naturopath has had me on very strict diets and has told me it may be psychological and to try hypnotherapy. That will start in 2 weeks time when I have finished the Insomnia CD. If it works half as well as the Insomnia CD I will be an extremely happy person. Look forward to singing your praises again!!!!
My sister wanted me to pass on this note. She has had eating problems as well as numerous learning and emotional problems. In a few months I’d like to try her on a few of your other titles.
Dear Rick Collingwood,
My brother Josh Horowitz just send me the Hypnosis life improvement CD series Weight Loss and Appetite Control about 5 days ago. I’ve only listen to it 4 times and all 4 times I’ve slept through the whole night. Before I was waking up almost 3 times a night and going down stairs to eat. Most of the nights I didn’t even realize what I was doing until my parents pointed it out. I couldn’t figure out why I was doing this. Finally I looked it up on the internet and realize that it’s almost like an eating disorder. It’s called Night eating syndrome. It is pretty dangerous unfortunately it’s not quiet a eating disorder but it is why some over weight people are they way they are. Anyways as I would go downstairs usually when I would be in the kitchen I would fall asleep and not even realize it.
My father said one day “I wonder if hypnosis would work?” I said I don’t know, but what he didn’t know is that Josh and I talked about this CD and how much I would like to give it a try.
I was so happy when it arrived. That night I couldn’t wait to put it on. I did my night routine I put the TV on and laid in bed and at 10 I turned the TV off and put the CD on. I wasn’t getting my hopes up because I didn’t want to be disjointed. The next thing I knew it my alarm was going off. I couldn’t believe I slept the whole night.
In the beginning the part of the CD I use a lot especially when I can’t relax out through the day. I try to think about what you say on the CD and I pretty much get myself relax. I don’t know if you remember but in the CDs both have you say that you come out to a garden with either a bench or a chair. Well I come out to a garden with beautiful butterflies and a swing bench. In my head it is almost real and very beautiful too bad I can’t explain it better.
Hopefully the CD will help me loose weight. I’ve been going to weight watchers for almost a year and I lost some of the weight but with the night eating it almost was impossible for me to keep the weight off.
So thank you very much. Hopefully it will continue.
Thank you for such a well thought out site.
A friend lent me her “Beat Insomnia” CD and I was so impressed that I checked out your website and am going to purchase some CDs for myself.
I have a 3 year old neck cancer, have been classed as “terminal’. The cancer is getting bigger all the time, is painful, restrictive, affecting my ability to swallow, speak, open my mouth, etc.
The cancer I have is stress/emotional based which explains why spending a fortune on pills, potions and lotions over the 3 years has had absolutely no effect whatsoever. I have tried several modalities to relieve stress and have been to four hypnotherapists but they seem ineffectual in addressing the issue of pain control, and have not been of much help re my health. One aspect which really impressed me was the depth of relaxation I was able to achieve with your “Beat Insomnia” tape……..much deeper than I’ve been able to achieve with a hypnotherapist, and of course the convenience is wonderful as I am only 40 kg at the moment, rather weak and the effort of getting about depletes my energy reserves quite quickly.
I note your outlets that sell your CDs here in South Australia and tomorrow shall phone to make sure they have the following in stock -
Mind Body Healing, Beat Insomnia, Stress Management, Happiness and Self Esteem. I think these would be the best for me. However I would appreciate your advice.
I read the article re Cancer, and can certainly identify with the comments. The testimonials are very encouraging and give hope - which is just so important.
I would like to know whether you have a CD specifically related to 1. Cancer and 2. Pain Control as these are two important issues for me (or would “MInd Body Healing” cover both?)
I am hoping the stores here have your CDs in stock, but if not I shall buy direct from your web site. I would very much appreciate a response re CDs on Cancer and Pain Relief.
