I took the Self-Hypnosis & Mastering the Fundamentals of Hypnosis class in January of 2013. It was really an eye opening and brain opening experience. I learned the different brain waves, how we create and change habits and patterns, basic hypnosis and more. I even got hypnotized a couple of times and it was a great experience. It was so relaxing! My main goal was to tackle some weight loss. With the help of Jane Ann Covington, I have been able to change some bad eating habits and my clothes are starting to hang on me as a result. I also learned a lot about myself that weekend when it came to some of the other issues that I'm having. I would highly recommend this class to anyone who is interested in the basics of hypnosis or to anyone that would want to continue their education and become a Hypnotherapist. Jane Ann is an excellent teacher with a wealth of knowledge. She is truly an expert of her field.

I should have seen these reviews before wasting my time with Ann. I waited 35 minutes to get a mediocrity service. I think she is good in advertising herself but awful in helping people. Don't waste your time or money like I did.

I have always been a generally happy, positive person who was pretty good at anything I wanted to do. But, I also have had a cycle of nervousness and very dark moods that have blocked me from truly being free to enjoy my life and my loved ones. Eventually, the years I spent protecting myself from being hurt and refusing to access my own emotions had taken a toll on me physicall and created problems with severe insomnia, migraines, arthritis, food allergies with malnutrition, and IBS with stomach pain. Since beginning to work with Jane Ann, I am finding improvement in all of these areas of my physical well being, results that have made a miraculous change in my life! Additionally, I have not had a dark, black week yet! Jane Ann's approach addressed helped me to heal at the root of these issues and to learn how to create the life I have always wanted to live.

Interesting: I left a less than glowing review a year ago and its gone. hmmm....makes me wonder how real these other reviews are. I don't have awful things to say about Jane Ann Covington. I don't have good things to say either. Honestly, she kind of had a "holier than thou" attitude. I'm actually quite difficult to offend and her deportment was more than irritating. Also, she insisted that I was lying more than once and said things that would dismay any qualified therapist (especially for someone who has done counseling in the past - it must have been the very distant past). Fortunately for her, I am not here for revenge etc. so I think that if you have a simple issue, like smoking, she would probably be fine. for more complex emotional issues, I would never recommend her.

My experience with Jane Ann was horrible. She kept me waiting for 45 minutes in the reception area and then when I finally went in to see her, she ate and talked about herself for a good 20 minutes. I went in with my boyfriend who had paid for numerous appointments in advance, and she was rude and condescending to him. We both left there feeling appalled that someone with her "expertise" could be so utterly unprofessional. I think she's a semi- smart lady who happens to know a thing or two about hypnosis. I was totally unimpressed.

In just a few short hours, Jane Ann was able to help me overcome over 40 years of my inability to eat fish due to a bad experience as a boy. I have a major heart condition and my doctors have been on me big time about eating fish, telling me that it was a medical necessity. Knowing that it could help extend my life, I had tried everything to get over that hump, with no success, so hypnosis was my last option, and I must admit, I came in hoping for the best but expecting the worst. To all you skeptics, I am now a convert! The best part was, Jane Ann didn't make me quack like a duck!!! (just kidding - that's an old wives' tale)

I thank Jane Ann for what she did for me. After only two hours she began changing my life and in eight more hours enriched it beyond my highest expectations. Even though fully recognizing, through prior counseling and inner knowledge, relationship damaging and hurtful behaviors, I had spent years unsuccessfully trying to change. I came to Jane Ann knowing that I could change only myself, but to my wonderment and happy surprise, the changes she helped me make also dramatically changed my spouse. There is a message in that! Interestingly, bad behaviors that I never mentioned to her have also gone away. She is very good at what she does. Her insightful and thoughtful approach, as she delved into my background, made me understand what was going on in my life and where my behaviors originated. Her counseling strength was obvious. The regressions were positive experiences that I felt deeply and the resulting insights were invaluable. Jane Ann's explanations of how the mind works and how hypnosis changes behaviors very effectively supported her counseling and hypnosis. I believe that it would have been difficult to impossible for me to apply the hypnotic suggestions had I not understood this. Likewise, the three CD's made specifically for me and listening to them on my iPod daily or twice daily were key to successful change. I regret that I did not find her sooner. Thanks to Jane Ann, my wife and I now have a happier and more satisfying life.

All my life I had a fear of failure. My mind would create worse case scenarios that would scare me away going after my dreams. I had read every book that I could find on positive mental attitude and overcoming fears, and quite frankly they seemed to have no effect. With just a couple of sessions with Jane Ann, however, I feel like a different person. I understand that anxiety and worry won't accomplish anything, and quite frankly, I don't waste time on them anymore. 1000 times more powerful than the best self-help book ever written, the value of the Covington method is that it is tailored specifically for you. Once Jane Ann understands who you are she applies the solution that is custom tailored to help you overcome your obstacles. This is not one-size-fits all pop psychology. This is the real thing condensed into a powerful solution built just for you. It is a lot more than merely helping you overcome anxiety. The Covington Method can help you become the person you've always known that deep down you could be.

I had been suffering from severe panic attacks and anxiety attacks for a number of years. I had spent large amounts of money on medication, books, CD's and even visited a psychologist, none of which helped me at all. My panic attacks were getting stronger and more frequent and I really needed help. I was initially skeptical that Jane Ann would be able to help me as I had tried so many other ways to get over my anxiety but was amazed. After the very first session I stopped having panic attacks. Jane Ann helped me help myself and has changed my life. The hypnotherapy and education she gave me in the few sessions I visited her have enabled me to take control of my life again without fear and anxiety. The CD's she gave me containing recordings of our sessions are the best and help keep me on track and reinforce everything she has taught me. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for help or counseling, she has experience and knowledge in so many areas. Everyone needs a little help in life now and again with various issues and if I ever feel I need help again I would go back to Jane Ann.

When I first walked into the Hypnosis Institute in January, it was really more for the experience than the outcome. I was a skeptical but had heard reports of hypnosis helping people quit smoking successfully so I decided to give it a try. It is just over nine months later and I am still not smoking! The urges are gone even when I am bored, stressed, having a glass of wine, or around people who I used to smoke with. I am a non-smoker. Amazing. The environment is comfortable and professional and her approach is no-nonsense. Jane Ann is the real deal. 12/19/08: Still a non-smoker. I never thought I would be able to say without a lot more work, stress, pain involved. Thank you!

I came into Janes Office never being hypnotized before, I have to say it was incredible. I was completely able to stop at any point, conscience at an unconscience level of deep relaxation. If you are a very buisy person like my self that never gets any peace of mind and always being pulled in different directions, then this will help. I really felt like I had been able to lock my self away from the world and have no one say the words "I need" and it felt like I was able to do this for almost a week and a half and it was only a few minutes of relaxing in her chair. Alot of people might be sceptical but its your loss, she's great and I will be going back for what I call a recharge on life. Thanks Jane, Patrick Idol Owner Brown's Chem Dry

In the past, I had been a nail biter for at least 30 years. I had tried everything to stop this behavior. After one session with Jane Ann, I stopped biting my nails and am now proud for others to see my beautiful nails. My sessions with Jane Ann allowed me to to take charge of my life and become the happy, confident person that I've always wanted to be. I would highly recommend Jane Ann to anyone looking to clear their minds of negative thinking and find peace within themselves.

I don't know where to start. Jane Ann has changed my life after only one session! I had a mental block about proceeding on with my professional aspirations, but with only one session, I was able to break through and look forward to the future. My emotional/mental paralysis and all fears fell away after one session. I was also able to overcome some phobias that I had. I did not realize just how anxious I was until Jane Ann helped me to let go of all of the stress I was holding on to. In many ways, I feel like a care-free joyous child again and I believe that there is nothing that I can not accomplish. I have been telling everybody I know about her. Everyone can benefit from a session with Jane Ann, everyone has issues. How would you like to lose weight, stop smoking, or clear the slate of all those emotional issues and hang ups that are hindering you from having the joy and peace in life that you are meant to have? You can and in less time than you ever imagined! Thank God for Jane Ann!

I can't say enough great things about Hypnotherapist, Jane Ann Covington. She not only helped my son's grades, go from D's & F's to A's & B's but she helped me to excell in life and live with confidence and passion again. Her professional office environment and her 30 years experience made me feel at ease. PLUS, I love the recorded personalized sessions she gave me at no extra charge, so I can do the hypnosis again from home! Thanks Jane Ann ! You are the BEST of the BEST!
