When Woodside Petroleum decided to ban all tobacco smoking on it's offshore oil and gas platforms, they called in Peter Zapfella.
Peter made 8 visits, via helicopter, to the platforms operated by Woodside Petroleum on the North-West Shelf of Western Australia, from December 2007 to February 2008.
He worked one-on-one with around 80 workers who had to quit smoking in readiness for the planned 1st March total smoking ban.
THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THAT A THERAPIST HAS CONDUCTED A QUIT SMOKING PROGRAM ON AN OFFSHORE OIL AND GAS PLATFORM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.
Following the total ban, tobacco are now contraband on the off shore oil and gas platforms. Employee’s baggage is physically searched before boarding flights to the rigs.
Peter Zapfella returned to work with around 50 Woodside staff at the Woodside operated Karratha Gas Plant who wanted to quit smoking, in March 2011. Peter has been asked to return to Woodside's Pluto Project in August 2012, to take another 40 - 50 through quit smoking therapy.
Peter Zapfella has been conducting on site Quit Smoking therapies for Rio Tinto's mines at Tom Price, Cape Lambert, Port Hedland, Dampier, Argyle diamond mine in the Kimberley, as staff quit tobacco smoking, alcohol problems, depression, anxiety, phobias, other addictions and work related limiting beliefs (public speaking etc).
Peter Zapfella can visit your business and assist you and your staff achieve a possible return on investment of up to 1,500 per cent. Call for a brochure now!

Every smoker knows cigarettes are not good for them. Every smoker knows they spend too much money on tobacco. Research shows most smokers want to quit. So, why don’t they?
1. Fear of nicotine withdrawals.
2. Fear of stress and anxiety.
3. Fear of weight gain.
4. Fear of failure.
5. Fear of loss. Loss of a long time "friend"?
6. Fear of losing smoking social situations.
7. Fear of success.
Until a smoker eventually defeats these fears they will make excuses and say they are ‘not ready to quit yet’.
The facts are;
1. Fear of nicotine withdrawals. All reputable scientific research done in the past 25 years has confirmed that nicotine is NOT physically addictive, therefore there is no such thing as nicotine addiction or nicotine withdrawal – the whole nicotine addiction racket was designed to keep people smoking so the perpetrators could syphon off money from the unsuspecting ‘addicts’.
2. Fear of stress and anxiety. Some people think that smoking some how relieves stress and anxiety when research actually proves smokers have higher stress levels than non-smokers. Smoking actually causes stress because smokers worry about when they can have their next cigarette, or if they have enough to make it through the day. Now they worry if they are allowed to smoke or what other people will think of their dirty little habit.
3. Fear of weight gain. Some people who quit smoking put on weight only because they eat more – usually sugar based foods – as a substitute, They miss the ‘hand to mouth’ habit (see … thumb sucking) and the taste and smell’s associated with smoking.
4. Fear of failure. The research proves beyond doubt that the pharmaceutical approach to quitting smoking (patches, gum, pills etc.) fail as much as 93 per cent of the time. No wonder people fear failure – they were always meant to fail – so they would return to buy more expensive pharmaceutical product designed not to work. The government sponsored quit program has a similarly high failure rate. Why? Because they want your money!
5. Fear of loss. If tobacco has been a part of your daily life, and associated with almost every significant emotional event, then there may be a perceived threat of loss when it is gone. However when you quit the correct way with Peter Zapfella you will experience a feeling of freedom and release from slavery.
6. Fear of losing smoking social situations. Maybe there was a time when many people you knew smoked and it was socially acceptable. Times are changing and now most people look upon smokers are social lepers, misfits and emotional wheel chair cases. Maybe you started smoking because of ‘peer pressure’, now it is time to quit for the same reason. Plus of course – your own healthy future.
7. Strange as it may seem, some people actually fear success. They see themselves as loser’s and cigarettes fit that image perfectly. If they quit smoking they fear other people may recognise them as having achieved something significant.
When a smoker eventually admits to themselves that all the excuses they had for smoking are now a farce. When they admit to themselves that tobacco smoking is really a game of suicidal ‘Russian Roulette’ it is time to quit playing games

HOW DOES PETER ZAPFELLA'S PROGRAM WORK?
Information is presented clearly with the emphasis on having you understand the tobacco addiction, how it formed in the first place, how it operates and how to logically 'pull it apart' - so it can end immediately without withdrawals, weight gain or side effects.
back to top
- In truth smoking does not 'relieve stress', aid in 'concentration' or cause 'relaxation' - it's all an illusion at the unconscious level of mind.
- Why it is difficult and unpleasant to quit smoking using willpower (including the government funded 'Quit' program), nicotine replacement therapy etc.
- Compelling proof that nicotine is NOT the addictive drug 'they' say it is. The truth is, it's all an urban myth - promoted by certain multi-national drug companies with products to sell.
- No cravings, loss or deprivation.
- The vast majority of Peter Zapfella's clients find the process empowering and totally effective.
CIGARETTE SMOKING IS NOT A 'BAD HABIT'
Beware of anyone who claims smoking is just a 'bad habit' - they obviously have no personal experience of being addicted to tobacco smoking. If you think smoking is just a 'bad habit' for you, then quitting will be as easy as changing any other habit. You won’t need patches, gum, pills or even the traditional hypnosis approach for quit smoking. It is easy to break a 'bad habit' - it just takes intent and a bit of 'will power'.
The vast majority of smokers are trapped inside a classic addiction.
"For those who still don't know let me emphatically state that cigarette smoking is a true addiction! To grasp this well-documented fact, one really doesn't have to study all the supporting scientific evidence. One simply needs to consider that no other drug is self- administered with the persistence, regularity and frequency of a cigarette. The harm inflicted by all other addictions combined pales in comparison." - Dr. K. H. Ginzel, M.D. Professor of Pharmacology and Toxicology. University of Arkansas.
If you are addicted to smoking tobacco and you want to quit, you really need to deal with all three parts of the addiction.
Most quit methods available today only tackle the so called 'nicotine addiction' and/or the 'bad habit' parts. This sets up internal conflict and therefore 'withdrawals'.
These smokers will usually experience cravings before relapse back into smoking, within hours, days or weeks. If they are lucky it may take months or maybe years before relapse.
If you know someone who quit smoking and still enjoys the smell of someone else's cigarette - they are almost certainly on the edge of relapse.
The unconscious mind has created the addiction - it learns best by 'doing' - NLP and EAT are 'doing' techniques. Simply 'talking' to the unconscious mind, as in the traditional hypnosis/counseling approach is usually not enough to effect the required change beyond the short/medium term. Peter and Coral often see clients who have tried the old traditional techniques - and failed - often after many sessions.
Using Emotional Alignment Therapy (EAT) Peter Zapfella negotiates a 'peace plan' between the conscious and unconscious levels of mind, whereby there is no reason for withdrawals or relapse.

Let's get this one out of the way immediately: There is no such thing as an 'addictive personality'. Some people use that one as an excuse for their negative addictions.
Scientists have found that every animal shares the same basic pleasure and reward 'circuit's' in the brain. These 'circuits' are driven by the neuro-transmitter 'dopamine'. Scientists now believe addictive behavior is normal in every living creature, as a survival mechanism. All personality types are equally capable of becoming addicted (although some anxiety and depression sufferers are inclined toward dependency as a coping mechanism.)
'Everyone engages in addictive behaviors to some extent because such things as eating, drinking and sex are essential to survival and highly reinforcing,'
says Dr G. Alan Marlatt, Ph.D., Director of the Addictive Behaviors Research Centre at the University of Washington. 'We get immediate gratification from them and find them very hard to give up. That’s a pretty good definition of addiction.'
'The inescapable fact is that nature gave us the ability to become hooked because the brain has clearly evolved a reward system, just as it has a pain system,'
says physiologist and pharmacologist Dr Steven R. Childers, Ph.D., Professor of Bowman Gray School of Medicine in North Carolina.
The problem is when an addiction is harmful to our health and well being.
'The tobacco plant did not produce nicotine to cause us to become addicts. Our brains did not develop nicotine receptors to tempt us with cigarettes. Any chemist who says he has found the drug that will block the nicotine receptors in the brain and therefore stop the cigarette addiction (read that as...'zyban' and 'champix') is thinking about how many dollars he can make from selling the drug. The simple truth is: If you taste or experience something you like, that feels good, you’re reinforced to do that again. Basic drives, for food, sex, or pleasure, activate reward centres in the brain. They're part of human nature,'
says Dr. Childers.
Naturally there can be other psychological components of an addiction. 'People expect that having a cigarette will reduce bad feelings,' says Dr Thomas Brandon, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Psychology at the State University of New York at Binghamton. His research found this was one of the principal reasons why people smoke cigarettes.
Smokers are about twice as likely to be depressed as non-smokers, and people with a history of major depression are nearly 50 per cent more likely than others to also have a history of smoking, he said.
Quitting cigarettes is one of the most gratifying things you can do for yourself. You can give yourself a future. As a non-smoker your energy levels will increase.
That constant stress and worry about when and where your next cigarette is coming will be gone. Your emotions will become more stable, and the self-satisfaction of having done it at last will be undeniable.
Many smokers who successfully quit cigarettes using patches, gum, 'cold turkey' and even traditional hypnosis relapse within 12 months of quitting. Some can last out for longer. The usual reasons given for relapse are stress, anxiety, depression or another negative emotions.
Emotional Alignment Therapy (EAT), developed by Peter Zapfella, can assist clients overcome these life challenges before quitting cigarettes.
Peter Zapfella was a smoker himself. With difficulty he quit using the 'cold turkey' method. He later worked for a tobacco company in marketing and distribution for four years. He understands the tobacco smoking addiction from 'the inside' - he has been there and done it too. He understands how difficult it is to quit 'cold turkey'. Perhaps because of this, he was committed enough to do the research required over a period of years, to find a cure. Now all smokers can benefit from his research.
Coral Conrad used to work for another multi-national tobacco company for many years. She was in a position to be aware of many 'secrets' within the tobacco industry. This information confirms everything that Peter Zapfella says about tobacco, addiction and nicotine.

Imagine for a moment; a horrendous situation. You are staggering through a dank and dirty tunnel, trying to escape while wearing a blindfold. Menacing voices from the shadows taunt you with false promises of freedom, yet every attempt at escape results in painful failure.
In many ways you have been trudging through that tunnel of life as a smoker until now trying to quit, yet failing every time.
If you are to escape the tobacco addiction, it is best to first understand it.
Did you know that more than 50 independent studies (University of Geneva and others) have proven nicotine transdermal patches and nicotine gum have around a 93 per cent failure rate? The success of prescription pills is not much better - and then there are those dangerous side effects – the worst being DEATH!
Why governments allow multi-national drug companies to flog us quit smoking products that really don’t work, and our governments finance a 'quit program' that hardly works at all?
The World Health Organisation (WHO) Director-General Doctor Margaret Chan says that governments around the world collect 500 times more money in tobacco taxes each year than they spend on anti-smoking efforts (such as the 'quit' program).
Peter Zapfella believes that if you want to quit smoking, you have the right to quit whenever you are ready. Now you can quit in one session - today!
Most smokers who come to Peter Zapfella to quit cigarettes have tried many other methods over the years, including traditional hypnosis (often multi-visits) group counseling, classes, acupuncture, laser, patches, gum, inhalers, herbs and pills without much success – if any.

- The vast majority of people who have come to Peter Zapfella to quit cigarettes say they have stopped smoking immediately without suffering any withdrawals.
- Weight gain following quitting cigarettes is not an issue when quitting with Emotional Alignment Therapy (EAT). Peter explains why and how to his clients.
- Peter Zapfella and Coral Conrad have personally assisted thousands of people to quit cigarettes in just one, one-on-one session, without withdrawals or urges.
- Reports indicate the overall success rate is almost 100 per cent. One of Australia's largest companies - Woodside Energy - asked Peter Zapfella to take around 80 offshore oil & gas workers through quit smoking therapy. Almost 2 years later Woodside has achieved and maintained a 100 per cent quit rate on their offshore platforms. Woodside invited Peter back to conduct Quit Smoking therapies on another 50 workers at the Dampier Gas Plant in March 2011.
- From time to time a few people need to return for a short second session to resolve other issues related to smoking, such as stress, anxiety, depression, anger, rebellion, defiance and other addictions.
- Quitting cigarettes is one of the most gratifying things you can do for yourself. You can give yourself a future. Your energy levels will increase.
That constant stress and worry will be gone. Your emotions will become more stable, and the self-satisfaction of having done it at last will be undeniable.
- Leaving cigarettes can be some-what similar to leaving an abusive lover. Difficult at first but ultimately the most liberating thing you could have done for yourself.
For a person who often feels sad, anxious, stress or bored, smoking can become a coping mechanism.
Once people learn to use tobacco smoking to regulate moods, if you take it away without providing alternatives, they'll be much more vulnerable to negative affect states. 'To alleviate them, they’ll be tempted to go back to what worked (for them) in the past', says Dr Thomas Brandon, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Psychology at the State University of New York at Binghamton.
Therefore we can conclude that some people return to smoking after a period of abstinence because of unresolved negative emotions. Perhaps smoking was a 'crutch' for them.
If negative emotions such as depression, anxiety, anger, stress, hopelessness, sadness and fear are contributing factors in a person returning to cigarette smoking then Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) can be effective in overcoming those negative emotions, even before quitting tobacco.
‘Unless the individual (addict) discovers the meaning and purpose of the addiction, and finds new ways of achieving these purposes, he (or she) will probably relapse, break down, or live in chronic, low-level misery.' - Michael Hardiman, author of 'Overcoming Addiction - A common sense approach' (Crossing Press 2001)
Did you know that until NOW...traditional hypnosis has been proven the most effective means of quitting smoking? Results differ widely because various hypnotherapists use different scripts and have varied skills. If you want to use traditional hypnosis to quit smoking – choose your therapist carefully!
In 1968 the American Journal of Clinical Hypnotherapy published a report by a doctor using hypnosis on 1000 smokers. After 18 months he found 94 per cent were still non-smokers after only three sessions of hypnosis each. About 10 years ago Peter Zapfella successfully reduced that to just ONE SESSION.
Many famous people including Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Winston Churchill, Jacqueline Kennedy Onasis, Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner, Drew Barrymore, Ellen DeGeneres, Matt Damon and others have used traditional hypnotherapy to stop smoking.
While those addicted to smoking nicotine die in record numbers, Philip Morris (USA) continues to tell them, via their web site, that the key to quitting is to buy more nicotine - NRT. What Philip Morris’s quit smoking website will never disclose is that those relying exclusively upon the nicotine patch have a 93% chance of relapsing to smoking within six months. What it will not tell them is that two studies have shown that if they've already used the patch one time, that their odds of relapse and defeat during a second attempt increase to almost 100%. (in other words - If nicotine replacement therapy does not stop you smoking first time around - next time it wont work any better than the first!)
Its time that those charged with protecting consumers begin doing their job. Needless lives are being lost and its beyond time that we started investigating how and why.' 'Why Quit News. The Nicotine Patch, Gum and Lozenge - Mounting Evidence of a Sham Upon Smokers' by John R. Polito. (Monday, April 4, 2005)

CAN YOU AFFORD TO SMOKE?
The Australian government is currently doubling the tax rate of tobacco products.
QUITTING and WEIGHT GAIN
Many quit smoking methods result in the quitter gaining weight. These quitters are substituting food, particularly carbohydrate and sugar rich foods, for cigarettes.
During therapy Peter explains in some detail why this occurs and how Emotional Alignment Therapy (EAT) overcomes this challenge. Some people who have quit using EAT say they have subsequently lost weight. Usually because they are following a more active lifestyle following quitting.
We know that nicotine is a stimulant, however it's direct effect on weight loss is often over stated, particularly by those pushing the 'nicotine addiction' story. Smoking cigarettes to keep the weight off is just a stupid excuse to justify tobacco smoking. If you want to reduce your weight - cut the fat producing foods from your diet, quit smoking and get healthy by exercising more.

REASONS TO QUIT SMOKING CIGARETTES
Cigarettes contain toxic chemicals in quantities far above safe limits, which in turn cause abulia, an underlying factor in Alzheimer’s disease. Smoking was associated with a doubling of the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. (lancet. com volume 351, page 1840)
back to top
NICOTINE IS A POISON
Nicotine does cause cancer, in tobacco products and NRT. There is no such thing as 'safe therapeutic nicotine' - it's all nicotine - it all comes from the same place.
'One of the most important groups of carcinogens in tobacco and tobacco smoke is the tobacco-specific nitrosamines. These nitrosamine carcinogens are formed from nicotine and related compounds by a nitrosation reaction that occurs during the curing and processing of tobacco. They are called tobacco-specific nitrosamines because they are found only in tobacco products (and possibly in some other nicotine-containing products).
A typical person ingests about one microgram of nitrosamine's a day, while the cigarette smokers' intake tops this by 17 times for every pack of cigarettes they smoke!
'No drug ever ingested by humans can rival the long-term debilitating effects of tobacco; the carnage perpetuated by its purveyors; the merciless irreversibility of destiny once the victim contracts lung cancer or emphysema; the militant denial on the part of those who, with the support of stockholders and governments, legally push their lethal merchandise across borders and continents killing every year two and one-half to three million people worldwide.' - Dr. K. H. Ginzel, M.D., is Professor of Pharmacology & Toxicology. University Arkansas.
'NRT pharmaceutical companies continue to advertise that the nicotine patches, gum and lozenge will 'double' smokers chances of quitting, while fully aware that there is absolutely no 'real-world use' evidence supporting any advantage for NRT.
Instead of NRT's 'double your chances' conclusion being science-based, it may be 'junk-science'. Today more than 50 per cent of all smokers have attempted quitting while using replacement nicotine at least once - and they are still smoking.
If NRT's 'double your chances' promise were true, we should have seen a massive increase in quit rates. Instead, since the arrival of NRT, cessation rates hover around 2 per cent of all smokers per annum. (This staggering 98 per cent failure rate includes all quit methods)

CHEMICALS IN CIGARETTES
In addition to nicotine, there are more than 4,000 chemicals, including toxins and poisons in cigarettes. Cigarette smoke contains a bewildering assortment of toxic gases, such as carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, acrolein, hydrogen cyanide, and nitrogen oxides.
The irony is that many of the poisons found in cigarettes and its smoke are subject to government bans and/or strict control and regulation in other products, yet they specifically exempt by governments in tobacco products.
A comparison of the intake of chemicals in cigarette smoke with the ' Accepted Daily Intake’ accepted by Health Authorities reveals the enormity of toxic exposure incurred by smokers.
In addition, there is the chemical burden from side stream smoke, afflicting smokers and non-smokers alike. Based on the reported concentrations in enclosed, cigarette smoke-polluted areas, the estimated intakes of nicotine, acrolein, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and formaldehyde peak at 200, 130, 75, 7, and 3 times the ADI, respectively. The high exposure to acrolein is especially unsettling. This compound is a dangerous carcinogen.
Laws aim at restricting exposure to carcinogens to a level where the lifetime risk of cancer would not exceed 1 in 100,000 to 1,000,000. Because of the awesome amount of carcinogens found in cigarette smoke and the fact that carcinogens combine their individual actions in an additive or even multiplicative fashion, it is not surprising that the actual risk for lung cancer is as high as 1 in 10.

FINANCIAL COST OF SMOKING
Two 20 year olds, both have the same health and financial status.
One quits smoking, while the other continues to smoke. If tobacco was to only increase in cost at the rate of inflation …. say 3 per cent a year … the smoker would waste $677,000 by the age of 65. However the real cost is increasing at much more than that rate because of government taxes. Plus the smoker will have accumulated the poisons and cancer causing carcinogens in their body. They will have a 50/50 chance of dying through tobacco related diseases within a few years, if they have not already died.
Meanwhile, if the non smoker had invested the same money in a quality share trust at an average of say …. 9 per cent they would have $5.4 million. Taking into consideration inflation, that would be the equivalent of around $1.4 million in today’s terms.
When you quit smoking, following therapy with Peter Zapfella, you could put aside the money you would have spent on tobacco products and invest it.
If you have a home loan, or any loan at all, you could immediately increase your repayments by the equivalent amount and save BIG TIME.

“Thank you Peter, eight days. I am feeling very, very good. Your visualisation (Zap Away Method) was so effective that out driving with my sister and mother last Sunday, I was just describing what I had to do
to obliterate the thoughts of smoking and I became violently ill. Sister pulled over and I fell out vomiting again and again. I was sick and shaking for perhaps an hour. Now I think I am more afraid of the image than I
am of smoking. My breathing is clearer, and I have lots of energy, focus is
clear and feeling good. I know it is not a miracle but it does feel a little
like it!” - Colleen C (Perth Western Australia)
'I went to see Peter about my Panic Attacks. I also had claustrophobia, insomnia, compulsive behaviours, negative emotions and low self-esteem. My Doctors medication was very addictive. I needed a better
solution. After my first visit to see Peter I walked away a different person. I also feel lighter; when I am walking it is an amazing feeling like floating on air, no effort at all. My husband could not believe the difference in me.' -
Dale Palmer. Wanneroo. Western Australia.
"Thank you so much for changing my life. The last few days have been a blessing. Everything I do is easy (beyond anxiety and depression). I have the energy of 6 people and not a bad feeling. When ever I have the chance I will send people your way for help as well. When I start my personal training business I will hand out your flyers if that's all right. Thank you once again." - Clinton (Mandurah, Western Australia)
'Dear Peter, I came to you in January 2009 and successfully gave up smoking after 30yrs, not touched them since, fantastic....' - Lynette O'Donnell Perth, WA
'I have now been smoke free for 4 months and I feel amazing. I have not had a craving or urge to smoke since my first visit. The only thoughts I have had of smoking are purely observational ones. I was recently at a restaurant with friends and two of my smoker friends left the table to go outside into the cold, wet conditions for their fix, and I thought to myself "I used to do that". While they were away they missed some fantastic conversations and our meals arrived while they were still outside.
On another occasion a smoker friend of mine who cant believe I don't smoke any more kept offering me a cigarette. I kept saying 'No thanks. I don't want one.' She was surprised that she couldn't convince me to have 'just one'. The thing is...I really do not want one. I have no desire at all to smoke, and do not miss it in the slightest.' - Melissa Le-Cocq, Perth WA.
'Funny thing happened (following therapy yesterday), last night was the first time in about 5 years that I slept through 7 hours and was woken by my alarm (I don’t know what you do, but you do it well ! ) '
Thanks, David Bergl, Perth WA.
'Hi Peter I came to see you last December (2008) to work on my OCD driven intrusive & obsessive 'slug' thought that was producing excessive anxiety and affecting my life. This seems to no longer be a problem anymore. I would like to see you again at the earliest opportunity to work on the symptoms of my BDD condition ( Body Dysmorphic Disorder).

HOW CAN I QUIT NOW?
Call +61 (0) 432 718 026 or +61 (0) 8 95 352 358 for a no-obligation chat or send an email with your inquiry to Peter. He will call you back, have a no-obligation chat and then book an appointment. IT'S THAT EASY!
Personal appointments are usually available 7 days a week in Perth (when not conducting regional therapies). In regional area's personal appointments are usually available at either 8am, 10.30am, 1pm, 3.30pm or 6pm.
Video-Phone VOIP appointments are available world-wide by arrangement. You can use your existing computer and a free 'Skype' program.
Pay an online $150 deposit by bank transfer or call +61 (0) 432 718 026 using your Visa* or MasterCard*, then Peter will send you an email with preparation material to complete before your appointment.
Attend your appointment on time. First you will be asked to complete some paperwork – so bring your reading glasses if you use them. Bring any cigarettes you still have left over with you to the appointment.
The tobacco smoking addiction will be explained to you, and how it formed and how it will be ‘pulled apart’ with Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Emotional Alignment Therapy (EAT) - NOT the traditional hypnotic approach to quit smoking.
The balance of the fee will be payable before your appointment commences with either cash, or a valid Visa*, MasterCard* or PayPal. Other cards and cheques can NOT be accepted. Fees are charged according to duration, time and location of therapy - phone or email for a quote. * check for availability. (Fee's are based upon the Australian Psychological Society recommended schedule for 2008 - not 2014. (Peter Zapfella and Coral Conrad do not claim to be psychologists)
The balance of the fee will depend on the appointment time and location (regional area's cost more than Perth Metro). Skype therapy is charged at Perth Metro rates. Private Health Insurance companies may or may not provide a refund - depending on your company and schedule. You are responsible to check with your company if you are covered.
You will receive support materials at the appointment, including a 500 page book on CD ROM along with recorded MP3 support material. You are expected to complete all tasks assigned to you.
Remember - Peter Zapfella makes this personal pledge - if you fail to quit smoking in one session, if you relapse - whether it is one day, one week, one month or even one year following your original session - he will take you through a special individual follow up session; ABSOLUTELY FREE OF CHARGE.

TERMS & CONDITIONS
There are sometimes good reasons why a person has relapsed into their old behavior. Therefore we offer a FREE one-on-one (not group) special follow-up session if required. It must be taken at a time and place nominated by Peter Zapfella or Coral Conrad.
By attending, the client agrees to follow instructions and tasks without limitation. Maximum sixty minutes free of charge. If a client fails to appear, or is late for the nominated appointment, fails to pay all outstanding amounts due, or fails to complete tasks as instructed, then all warranties and guarantee's become void.
Like any medical or therapy procedure there can be no definite guarantees of success. No doctor, psychologist, acupuncturist or counselor can give a 'money-back guarantee', and we do NOT either. Truth is a 'money-back guarantee' is an invitation to fail.
By booking an appointment for therapy you agree that if for any reason you cannot attend a booked appointment, you will email or call Peter Zapfella by phone (04 32718026) as soon as possible, so that someone else can have the opportunity of using that appointment time. You also agree that if you fail to give more than 24 hours notice of cancellation/postponement of an appointment you will promptly pay $150. The balance of all fees are payable and due at the commencement of appointments. If you fail to give notice and fail to appear for your booked appointment you agree to pay the full fee for the reserved time. In addition you agree to pay for all professional collection costs and fees reasonably incurred in recovering the debt, plus interest and administration fees as detailed below. If a client is not ready to make THE change/s in their life, or if they are ill, have a comunicable disease (e.g. Colds and flu’s etc), they should postpone their appointment until they are healthy. Peter Zapfella reserves the right to end a session or therapy if a client is un-cooperative, unwell or under the influence of drugs etc. CYBER-BAND is a registered trade mark.
