In 2005 one of the world's first series of Personal Hypnosis CDs was released online and in retail stores throughout Australia, the UK and the USA. After their creation, the Quit Smoking and Lose Weight Now programs were put to the test on 20 random participants each in two groups of 10 volunteers. The participants were independently chosen by the TV program A Current Affair.

The trial produced some remarkable results for the majority of the subjects and soon after the show aired on national television, the success of the programs was astronomical. In 2006 Rick's "Lose Weight Now!" program became the only hypnosis recording ever to win a Gold Aria Award. In August 2008 it went Platinum as did his incredibly successful "Quit Smoking Now" program, whilst the "Mind-Body Healing", "Stress Management", "Happiness & Self Esteem" and "Beat Insomnia" programs all went gold. A truly remarkable feat, demonstrating Rick as one of the top hypnotists in the world today.
