Hello :-)

Neil asked that I do a review so here it is (bad grammar and all). I Hope all is well and I would just like to say thank you. You have changed my life for the better and hope people can read my review and feel inspired.

Self confidence

If your sceptical about hypnosis and feel like your not going to be in control then DON'T. Its the most valuable technique of relaxation and 'self counselling' you will ever learn. Its nothing like you see on TV, you are in control the entire time.I hope my story helps you see the value in the technique and how Neil has helped change my life.

I suffered with depression and stress most of my adult life. I knew this was down to a lack of self confidence and the way in which I thought about situations in my life. I was finally at an all time low and knew I had to do something about it. When your young children start asking why their mummy had the curtains closed at 4 o'clock on a sunny day and why she didn't smile anymore, you know you have to change.

The doctors had put me on another course of anti-depressants and threw a leaflet at me, telling me to decide what I wanted to do about it and call the relevant number. I threw it in the bin, knowing a 8-12 week waiting list was going to do no good. It was then, that my Internet search happened, which led me to Neil.

After the initial call and booking of the first appointment I knew I was making steps but was very anxious and slightly sceptical about the situation, but I needn't of worried. Neil was wonderful and made me feel very relaxed at our initial session. Very welcoming and kind, putting you at ease as soon as you walk through the door.

My first session seemed to fly past and I instantly felt better about myself and the way in which I viewed things. We discussed My issues and found the root of the problem before going into my first hypnosis session. What feels like 10 minutes of hypnosis was actually a whole hour.
After my first session i was looking forward to putting my techniques into practice and getting back to my second session. I already felt more confident and happier at this point.

My second session went even better than expected. Focusing more on self hypnosis and really tackling the root of the problems. Almost 2 hours spent in hypnosis absolutely flew past.

I am a new person, I am confident, happy and loving life. I live in the now and don't dwell in the past anymore. I don't replay situations or over think things, i no longer think negative or doom and gloom. Life is now positive, brighter and full of opportunity. I don't need peoples attention or compliments to feel good about myself anymore, I do it myself!

I cannot thank Neil enough for pointing me in the right direction and would recommend him to anyone who could benefit from his tecniques. He has changed my life.


Client feedback:

I was a self-confessed workaholic, yet highly successful in my sales career but I have suffered from depression on and off for years.  For years I had pushed myself to the limits in everything I did to cover up for the lack of self-esteem and self-worth that I lacked.  I think this feeling came from the fact that I am dyslexic but was never diagnosed until I was in sixth year at school. 

I always had this feeling of not being good enough.  

I  had to be the best at what ever I did, highly competitive, number one in the company, the funniest and loudest person at any party, until I woke up to the realisation that I was 33, single and very lonely and was being something I wasn’t.

It took until that Sunday morning for me to try again to sort out my life.  Aged 33 I have tried stress management, faddy diets, spiritualist, kinesiology, homeopathic remedies, and another counsellor (who actually offered me a job, I left straight away because she was not listening to me!) anything that I could think of to try “get my self better”.

I thought there was not a lot wrong with me, I was successful, had a fantastic family, brilliant friends, the only thing I went to Neil about was to sort out my stress levels and see if I could go out at night without having to drink too much to compensate for my fear of going out.

It has taken me years to find someone like Neil, I felt very comfortable and he just asked me a few questions and then I was off,   He listened to me intently; I felt I was just waffling, going from one topic to the next with no thread to what I was saying.  However after some time Neil very calmly suggested where all my problems originated from and that I had a lot of issues to go through but we would get to the bottom of things. About 3 hours and lots of hankies later I emerged from Neil’s exhilarated.

I have always felt that there is something that has bothered me.  I have suffered from depression on and off for years however work and being successful made me blank out all of this.  Like a lot of people I threw myself into work to compensate the fact that I had no one to share my life with.  I felt so much better speaking with Neil and knew that between us we could work out a lot of stuff.

I now have my life, I feel in balance.  Work which was everything to me is now is “a job” which I will do my best for and am now happy to achieve 100% and I don’t actually need to hit 160% of target to feel good.  My manager has commented very positively in the change, delighted that I have now managed to achieve a work life balance which is so important.  

Some of my friends have taken to the change some haven’t but I think again this is natural.  All I know is that I no longer have sleepless nights, I am no longer stressed, I am no longer comfort eating (looking forward to seeing a change in my clothes!) and the feeling of being useless has gone, in fact the knot in my stomach which I have always had is slowly getting slacker and slacker.  

Neil has helped me a great deal, but it has taken a lot of work to get through it, a lot of tears but a lot of laughter too.  I am so pleased that I have taken this time for myself and invested in my future.  Although it is scary still thinking of going out, I have been doing it and the best thing is I don’t need or want to be centre of attention, at last I have been able to find the real me.  

Thank you so much Neil, you have helped me find the real me……and I quite like her now!  You’re a star.
