Phil (Depression/Low Mood)
I visited Chris back in early 2015 when I suffered from depression. Chris worked wonders with me in helping me understand how I was feeling and how the brain works. Through relaxation and
meditation techniques Chris and I worked through the problems together. Week by week I noticed positive changes in myself and the way I started to handle stuff changed for the better. I cannot thank
Chris enough for the help she provided.
Thank you, Chris, you helped me change my life around.
BC (Lack of Confidence/Fear of Flying)
When l went to see Chris for the first time, l was so anxious that my husband had to take me, l had NO confidence at all, and very tearful. l never went out unless l really had to. I made excuses not to go. I also had a Fear of Flying. I couldn’t go to see our grandson in Toronto and my husband had to go on his own.
After a few sessions with Chris, my confidence grew and grew and I’ve just come back from a fabulous holiday in Canada! all thanks to Chris. l am always half full and not half empty any
Thank you Chris, you worked wonders xx
SW (Weight Control)
“When I started seeing you, I wanted to lose weight and I thought it might be as easy as lying back and you putting a spell on me! You quickly managed to help me overcome my desire to stop on the way home to buy chocolate but I wasn’t able to lose as much weight as I wanted to. Then in late 2017 I decided to go the more traditional route and so joined Slimming World which brought me back to within the normal range of BMI for my age and height. As I reached my goal, I wondered why it had been so easy and I realised there was something different about my ‘thinking’. I can only describe it as the feeling I got when I finally managed to stop buying chocolate on the way home - I still want to eat some of the less healthy options available to us all but my brain persuades me not to reach for the biscuit, extra glass of wine and cheese, or a cake in the café!
I wanted you to know that I believe that this new feeling and weight loss is part and parcel of what I managed to absorb through the hypnotherapy I had with you.
So ... Thank you very much … after years of battling my weight problems I feel I am now on an even keel and I know that if I fall off for a day or so, my brain wants me to go back to the newly acquired habits of eating healthily and exercise!
I started to see Chris about my eating problem as I was using comfort food as a coping mechanism but could not stop for more than a couple of days. I knew that I had to make changes before my health was badly affected but could not do it on my own. From my first session with Chris she made me feel comfortable, that she understood how I was feeling and she listened to my worries and excuses. Although I was nervous and lacked self-esteem, she made me feel that change was possible and that I had the strength to make the correct choices without making food feel like the enemy. Chris also explained the science behind food cravings and that it isn’t just lack of will power. Slowly but surely, I lost the excess weight and started to like my shape.
I have found the sessions with Chris are always a pleasure that I look forward to. The time spent in trance is so relaxing and leaves me feeling positive and energized.
Chris has changed my attitude to food, dieting and so much more and I feel I have made a friend for life.
"I hope this note is one to add to your collection of grateful former clients! It has been such fun coming to see you and such a blessed relief to be able to deeply relax. Your words have both soothed and simulated me in turn; to take the next steps in my life’s journey. It was about food but also about so much more – how to slow down; how too think ahead about what was best for me; how to find ways to recognise my stress levels. I have so enjoyed all the steps along the way. I have stopped all that cramming food in when I felt I deserved a reward for a hard day. I can easily resist my chocolate habit now”.
Having been a smoker for over 50 years I was determined to stop the habit once and for all. I approached Chris for help knowing she'd be sympathetic to my cause having once been a smoker herself.
It is now over 6 years since my last cigarette. There has been the odd occasion (few and far between) when I thought it would be nice to have a cigarette but those thoughts soon passed. I would, at a
rough guess, say I have saved over £18,000 which is incredible! An added bonus is that my clothes and breath don't smell of stale smoke.
Thank you Chris for all your help.
“I can’t believe it’s been a year since my last appointment with you and I’m so proud to say that I haven’t had or craved a cigarette a cigarette for 365 days”. Thank you for being such a warm, kind and caring individual as this was a huge factor in me contacting you to ask for help”.
I have been suffering with anxiety for 6 months which started to affect my social life and work resulting in my GP signing me off for a long period and also being prescribed medication. I felt like every step forward I was taking two steps back as something always seemed to 'crop up' and bring my anxiety back on.
My most recent struggle was having a panic attack whilst driving to work, because of this I was no longer able to drive to a place where I had to get there for a certain time (appointments, work,
meeting friends etc) I was frustrated and could not seem to understand why this was happening or what to do to overcome this hurdle I had.
I was at my wits end as family, friends and colleagues started questioning if I actually liked my job and it was frustrating trying to explain how I felt.
I am so pleased that I contacted Chris to help me, she has given me explanations as to why this has happened and focused on moving forward. Chris listened and tailored my sessions to my needs to help me overcome my anxiety.
Chris has a lovely home with a relaxed environment to be able to carry out the sessions. No issue is too big, small or silly it is all about moving forward.
After a phased return I am now back to full time work, I have no sense of panic when I'm driving and I have never felt better! Everyone has commented that the 'old me' is back I have started my social life again and cannot thank Chris enough.
I would recommend Chris to anyone!
In terms of presenting, I'm now doing lots of that! To date my victims have included two cabinet ministers, the head of the Met Office and the chief statistician of the Office of National
statistics. So far so good, if feels like to old me is back. A few months ago, I gave a 20 min presentation to a room of 80 people at a conference. It was filmed and I have been told its
going on you tube, when it does, I'll send you a link so you can see me in full flow. I am now the ‘go to’ person in the office when someone needs presentation advice.
Thanks for all you help, support and guidance, you were awesome :)
SL (Fear of Heights/Fear of Flying)
For 33 years prior to my holiday in Florida, I had an absolutely 'all-consuming' fear of heights. Anything over 4 rungs on a step ladder would induce a feeling of completely overwhelming panic in me, a person who would generally be considered as probably 'disconcertingly' brave in any genuinely threatening situation.
This has actually had quite a cripplingly restrictive effect on many aspects of my life: i.e. the complete fear of being more than 3-4 feet off of the ground when 'outside' (although I have always forced myself on to scaffolding and roofs throughout the last 25 years - I was constantly gripped by fear) and actually quite uncomfortable above the second or third floor even when 'inside' a building (not dis-similar feelings of fear).
Flying / roller-coasters etc had been complete anathema to me. You could put the winning lottery ticket on a platform twenty feet above the ground and I would not have even attempted to retrieve it. To say that this treatment has transformed my life - is an understatement!
After seeing you I was able to go on every single high, fast and incredibly scary ride that Florida has to offer. I went on every one - numerous times - with a complete lack of the fear that I have had for most of the rest of life.
In relation to my fear of flying, we took off on the Thompsons Dreamliner - and I can swear that my heartbeat did not raise by a single solitary beat. When we had severe turbulence over the Atlantic, when all passengers - and even the stewardesses - were ordered to return to their seats and put on their seat belts - it was 'me' sitting there calm as a cucumber, without a hint of a raised heartbeat - calming my wife down (who is normally a very good flyer).
I cannot thank you enough Chris - it truly is an absolutely magical transformation - and my only regret, is not having done it 30+ years earlier. Thank you so much - you are a true miracle worker.
