Before I chose to go to Susanne for hypnotherapy I was feeling extremely down and at a loss as to what I wanted to do with my future, Susanne was extremely kind and helpful, always listening to my worries and helping me to work through them. she was very easy to talk to as well. moving forward I will take with me the relaxation skills Susanne taught me as well as a new confidence. Working with Susanne has aloud me to pursue things that i wouldn’t have even thought about doing before. I would highly recommend this service as it has truly helped me in ways i would never imagined possible.
Over the years, my fear of flying had got worse with each flight that I took and an acquaintance who was learning hypnotherapy suggested that I try it. this person lived too far away I never followed it up locally until my friend Susanne qualified in the same field. I was invited to start with relaxation techniques and although it was sometimes a bit odd talking about”what’s been good?” etc with a friend Susanne was able to professionally steer me into positively and putting me at ease.
Lack of sleep was also an issue for me in everyday life – I would lie awake worrying about almost everything. susanne was very good at explaining and helping me understand how the brain worked (which I found extremely interesting) and how negative thoughts and putting off doing things that I need to do directly impact poor sleep patterns if I hold on to them.
I can honestly say that from these sessions alone, I know that I now think about everything going on around me from a different angle. I ask myself if there is anything I can do about a situation to ensure it is not lingering in the back of my mind when my head hits the pillow.
As for the flying, it boils down to the same sentiments, once on the plane, is there anything I can do about it? the answer is no, but I have a way of dealing with it – I have learned to just relax and think about what I can control. thank you, Susanne.
I chose hypnotherapy initially to help with weight management as was conscious my eating habits were linked in to my emotions. Every Friday at work, I would have ‘fat Friday’ and was desperate to take control again. I was also on the highest dose of antidepressant medication which I felt I had become tolerant to, so was eager to find another solution as have been up and down with depression since I was a teenager. I was apprehensive about hypnotherapy as always thought of it as the deep trance state and nervous as I knew Sue on a personal level. She assured me before any session that I would enter a trance but could come out of it at anytime if I felt uncomfortable, I didn’t need to worry as learnt the trance state was just deep relaxation and time to switch off from day to day stresses.
Sue always remains professional and confidentiality has always been upheld. Not only did I thoroughly enjoy the trance but talking positively, reflecting on my ‘happy moments’ and setting goals have been such an influence and I have been off SSRIs for a few months. I genuinely believe I would have not got off them solely and can’t praise the use of hypnotherapy and support from sue enough. Reflecting back, although I have lost around a stone in weight, the effects on my mental well-being outweigh the weigh management I initially wanted. It has also made monumental changes in my personal relationships.
I would highly recommend hypnotherapy to others if you are struggling with any aspect in your life.
Having engaged previously in other types of therapy throughout my life, solution focused hypnotherapy emerged as a new option to combat my depression and anxiety. Sessions were always taken from a positive stance within a relaxed and trusting setting. Sue provides an open and success based way of tackling what have always seemed to be an unchangeable outlook and attitude to life with its debilitating consequences.
I have noticed a steady change in confidence, self esteem and a complete mind shift to dealing with everyday life from a solution focused perspective. I now can access new ways of looking at what would have been a major problem to seeing this as a possible adventure to engage in. I 100% recommend this approach for a whole new outlook on life.
