Hi. Mu husband was ready to take this step and went on to one session to quit smocking with City Hypnosis.
No questioners was given, no paper was sigh. After l h he pay £295 in cash and don't received receipt. When he leave building he got cigarette and smock happily as usually. Next day we sent email to City Hypnosis about "it doesn't work" and asked for refund, providing bank details
owner of company replayed, that in their policy they don't do refund but kindly ask for long number on the card , to give back 50% as they need to cover expenses, rent ect.
WE wrote back that we not accepting offer and still ask for full money (it is whole week wages for my husband) . We call him a few times, no one responding.
What shall we do?

He had such a believe that hypnosis will help him to quit smocking.


Actually all start from conversation with CH about stop drinking session. It is 2 session ,fee in total just under £500. He didn't want rick such a big money and desided to do give up smocking session as a test. I was in conversation via email with CH to help him to make desision. CH was saying that most of their clients are happy with their serviceThis is the story from begining.

Alex Watts :

You should to write and set out your losses and ask for a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court. Make sure you send this recorded delivery and keep a copy.

If they refuse then you can issue proceedings which can be done online at: or by competing form N1 at:

The Court will then issue the claim which will be sent to the Defendant and they will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce it. If the matter is defended it will be set down for a hearing. If the losses are £10,000 or less then it will be a small claim and you do not need representation.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
