The positive effects of hypnotherapy - self-confidence and the recovery from cancer
The purpose of this article is to share the experience of a female client who initially came to see me to explore the possibilities of helping her to develop self-confidence and also healing from the cancer episode she faced.
Hayley first came for an initial consultation in February 2017. The following was her feedback. "From the offset Heather made me feel at ease and relaxed, making me feel totally comfortable. I am a person who finds it hard to relax and feel the world is always on my shoulders. Even on my way to Heather I was feeling dubious as to whether Hypnotherapy would actually work for me; as I have had a lady attempt it before without any joy. All the way through the therapy sessions (of which I had 6). Heather made it feel like this is something that she is really made for. This has been further emphasised by her own technique and the dialogue she composed for each session. She spoke softly and clearly throughout, which I found very relaxing. At the end of each Hypnotherapy session, she slowly asked me to open my eyes and I couldn't believe how relaxed I felt. In conclusion, this is something that you can tell Heather has great passion for and delivered each session very professionally."
The sessions enabled Hayley to talk openly about her issues in a confidential environment at her own pace. At the beginning of each session, there was the opportunity of expressing how Hayley's week had been and how she was feeling. The Hypnotherapy session was then delivered and adapted weekly according to matters that arose.
Hayley praised each session by expressing how good she felt because of the trusted, well-established rapport and relaxing environment. She could see a positive improvement in herself weekly. Her GP very much supported the Hypnotherapy treatment and could clearly see a positive difference.
Hayley is now in a position to see her life from a new perspective. She has been enabled to come to terms with her ordeal and is now able to move on with her life. The Hypnotherapy sessions have given her the opportunity of airing concerns and she now has the tools to be able to do something about it. The sessions have made a difference to her life. She is able to see herself in a much more positive, confident way. She has been able to reflect on her experience with cancer and is now in a much stronger position to move on with her life.
Hayley highly recommends Heather Fletcher as a very professional and caring practitioner.
