Mary who consulted to stop smoking
“I just wanted to send you a quick e-mail as I celebrate four weeks of no cigarettes today. It truly has been a surprisingly easy habit to break. This time there has been a lot less stress than on previous attempts made, as you say, it has been effortless and calm. I am very grateful to you for your help. My stopping smoking was a necessity, due to a back operation I need, for which smoking will not fuse the bones. Your help truly has made a big difference to me and I feel good. I had bronchitis prior to seeing you and my breathing is so much better, I can sleep without wheezing”
Dave who consulted for anxiety and used the Mind Training Programme:
“Thanks for your help..I have improved beyond what i expected..Not had any head sweats since I last saw you and although I’ve have had the occasional hot flush I have managed to ignore it and not let it develop into an episode. I”d also like to say I appreciate your honest approach to the job you do and would recommend you to anyone in a similar situation to mine”.
This is from Francis who came to see me to stop smoking.
“The session was very relaxing in nearly fell asleep. All the times I would normally want to smoke, like when I’m driving or on the telephone didn’t bother me at all. It was slightly challenging when I felt anxious, but even then, I coped really well”
Robert who went through the Thrive Programme to overcome his anxiety, several months after his sessions ended has said this:
“I’ve done things in life now that I wouldn’t have done before, I’ve been away to the UK to work, I’d never have had the confidence to do this before. I used to be really paranoid about everything, and since I finished the course, I haven’t had a single paranoid experience, in fact I haven’t had a bad day since completing the programme”.
Chris consulted for low confidence and self esteem. She went through the Mind Training Program to address this on my recommendation.
“It was like a light was being switched on, unlike many of these types of programs, this gave answers about me and how to deal with things. There wasn’t a best thing about this program, because you get a basket of things, It’s a bit like building blocks and each block just builds on the next.”
Ann, consulted for weight loss and low self esteem and completed a course of Mind Training. She has signed up for a charity challenge.
“A year ago I would not have had the confidence to even think I could do this. I’m in a much better place now with regard to my ‘thinking’ and I would like to pass on a big thank you for helping me reach this point”
Cathy, consulted with a fear of driving, after four sessions of Mind Training she texted
“The good news is, I’ve been out in my car for a drive, and I enjoyed it:)”
Maria. Consulted to stop smoking
“It’s two weeks today since I came to you for hypnosis and I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks. I have not even entertained a cigarette and as you said I have absolutely no cravings and health wise I feel so much better in myself already. I have had a couple of marital troubles in the past week and I have so much belief in myself I will not use anyone as an excuse to smoke. I am still listening to my CD as well. Once again, thank you and I will keep you informed as I go.”
Kevin had already stopped smoking, but kept falling off the wagon when he went out for a few drinks with friends.
“I just wanted to thank you for your help. I really can relax and enjoy myself when I am out socialising now without having to worry about cigarettes, I wouldn’t have been able to do this without your help”
Margaret is retired and consulted for help to stop smoking.
(Age is no barrier to stopping smoking!)
“Four weeks today, so far so good. Thank you for having helped me to change my life. Fingers crossed I can keep it up. My daughter is over the moon”
Melody. Consulted for help to reduce exam nerves.
“I listened to the CD that Philip recorded for me every day and it really helped me to stay in control of my exam nerves and deal better with the actual exam itself on the day. I felt alot more prepared than I had before, and studying wasn’t such a chore. I passed my final accountancy exams and am really grateful for the help that got me through them”
Hannah. Consulted for low confidence & low self esteem.
“I think what you do is amazing, my life is so different since I finished therapy”
Pauline. Consulted for low confidence.
“Just to let you know I did the absailing – it’s great you should try it sometime”
Paul. Consulted to stop smoking.
“It’s been an extremely busy stressful time at work. I’ve been out at weekends and haven’t even considered a smoke. To say it has been easy is an understatement”
Alex. Consulted to improve his motivation and for memory improvement.
“I’m amazed with the difference”
Sam. Consulted with relationship and sexual difficulties.
“I can’t express how thankful I am for your help. I never got the chance the last day I left, so I would like to thank you now. Thank you sooo much for your help and guidance, I feel reborn”
Christine. Consulted with a fear of snakes and a weight problem.
“I still can’t quite believe my snake phobia has sort of dissolved. I’ve been many times into reptile house at the zoo. I’ve attended the ‘snakes alive’ time at the zoo with a python around a woman’s neck. It’s fantastic and I can’t thank you enough. I’ve lost a stone in the bargain too.”
Karen. Consulted with a weight problem.
“Four weeks on and my clothes are feeling looser, as is my watch. I got on the scales this morning and I have lost 15lbs. I cannot believe how easy it has been.”
Celine. Consulted to stop smoking.
“I am still a non smoker (after a month) despite a sudden death in the family, cat becoming ill and video recorder breaking down. So no more smells or coughing.
Vanessa. Consulted to stop smoking.
“I am still smoke free and got very drunk last night but was not tempted at all so that’s good. Don’t feel deprived at the moment and don’t have any cravings….so far so good!!!”
Jamie. Consulted with a fear of flying.
“I was on my way back from Gatwick yesterday and I thought of you. Not due to fear but more in reflection of how far I had come. This was my second trip and I am away again in 3 weeks”
Matthew. Consulted for help with studying and exam nerves.
“I have just received the results for the accountancy exam I just did, I’m over the moon. Against all the expectations of my tutors, I did actually pass. Thank you”
Fran. Consulted with a fear of public speaking and general low confidence.
“Wow what a difference I really did feel more confident than I have ever felt before. I have also noticed a difference in day to day situations. I seem to be able to talk to anyone anywhere which is fantastic for me (probably not for them!) I am still listening to the CD every day which is really helping too. I can’t thank you enough for what you have done for me. I’m so relaxed and confident about myself. A feeling that didn’t used to come easily.”
Karen. Consulted for help with binge drinking.
“Thank you for your help with my binge drinking. I went for lunch with my friends last bank holiday, I didn’t have any problems”
Sue. Consulted with weight issues after stopping smoking on her own, bulimia and relationship difficulties.
“I have been feeling so much better and have still not been sick and most importantly haven’t started smoking again. I am continuing to lose weight and generally feel so much better. My husband and I are definitely getting on better too!”
