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.
