I can speak from experience I used to have a crippling phobia of spiders, to the point if I saw one and I was at home on my own I would leave and stay at my mums until someone could find the spider to get rid of it! Or I would barricade myself into a room where I would put towels under the door so it couldn’t get in, but I wouldn’t be able to sleep.
My phobia got so bad I wouldn’t go into certain rooms if I thought there would be a spider in there!
I got hypnotherapy so I could just be able to see a spider and not have a panic attack, I never wanted to like them, I just wanted to be able to stay calm and think clearly.
When I see a spider now I don’t freak out, I can get a cup and a piece of paper and catch it to put it outside! This is a fantastic result for me, such a small step, but a massive life changer.
I contacted Louisa and had about 4 or 5 sessions with her – all the while thinking I’d be sitting in a chair with someone waving a pocket watch in front of me while saying ‘dentists are good, dentists are good’ but, I’m pleased to say that it wasn’t like that at all!
Louisa spent a lot of time talking about the physiology of fear and phobias which massively helped my understanding and, during the hypnosis, I thought I was sleeping – though I definitely wasn’t!
I’m proud (and thankful) to say that I had a massive refilling and a prep for a cap carried out at a normal dentist – with no sedation – the week after I finished my hypnotherapy and, while it wasn’t my idea of fun, using the knowledge Louisa gave me and the subtle changes through the hypnosis, I coped well. I didn’t run out of the surgery yelling, I didn’t battle with the dentist and I managed to remain relatively calm in the chair.
A few weeks later I went back to have the cap fitted with no issues.
I would have no qualms in recommending Louisa as she really does know her stuff – a lot of what she has told me has influenced both my personal and working life – and working with her has led me to face and overcome something that I never in a million years thought I could do.’
I had been a smoker since I was 14 years old,( I am now 48) and I was expecting my first Grandchild and knew that I did not want to be a smoker anymore as I wanted to be around to watch him grow up and to run around after him.
I was clear with Louisa what I wanted to achieve and she talked me through the session, just one session and I would be free from an addiction I had had for many years. I did ask some strange questions, would I suffer? Would it be instantaneous that my urges would be gone? She reassured me that it would be instant and I would not suffer.
I did have my last ever cigarette at 6pm on the 6th January 2015 and have not had any desire to smoke since. My partner smokes cigars and it does not bother me and it is hard to explain but it is like I never had that first cigarette all those year ago.
No with drawl symptoms, no over eating to compensate not smoking any more which I was worried about. I can not begin to add up how much money I have saved and how grateful I am to Hypnotherapyforme for changing my life.
Just a few hours to change a lifetime of addiction, I can not recommend her highly enough.
I was at the point of thinking that this is the way I would have to live and whatever I tried things did not improve for me.In a short space of time and sessions with Louisa I have been amazed at the positive changes that I have been able to make in my life as a result. I have had many restrictions lifted which have then enabled me to have a much better quality of life and being able to overcome many fears that affected me both personally and professionally on a daily basis. I can now ‘see the light at the end of the tunnel’.
Louisa is completely professional at all times, she has the great ability to make you feel relaxed in the therapy sessions and to feel extremely positive about your goals.
I was a bit sceptical at first after trying out so many other solutions to overcome my fears and phobias but I can honestly say that I have not been disappointed with the results of the Hypnotherapy and would not hesitate to recommend Louisa to anyone else and already have!
Louisa is a lovely lady who is passionate about her therapy and dedicated to her profession.
