"Michele, thank you so much - you have helped me far more than you realise - and I very much appreciate our sessions together...."


"When I first contacted Michele, I had mixed feelings of scepticism, worry about sharing my problems with a stranger and I didn’t know much about the treatments available. Michele immediately put my mind at ease and explained all about the process. I suffer with anxiety and this was amplified during the pandemic, but even after my first session I felt much more relaxed. I was so relaxed in one session I actually fell asleep and the recordings Michele has shared in between our sessions really help me drift into a deep sleep. For me, the key benefits are a sense of calm and knowing it is ok to feel the way I do. Also, learning to deal with situations, which would normally cause me anxiety and panic attacks i.e. breathing techniques to calm a stressful situation. I am now sleeping better, have a better understanding of how my mind works when in a stressful situation and I now can manage to bring myself out of a panic attack much faster should one occur, but they are happening much less. I can honestly say Michele has helped me no end with my anxiety and stress and highly recommend her and hypnotherapy in general to anyone seeking a little piece of calm in this mad world we live in."


"I was having hypnotherapy sessions before lockdown with Michele and was pleased to find that even switching to online sessions they are still effective. It is like my brain is a train on a rail-way track and it just gets picked up and placed on a different track next to it – at the time I don’t notice anything different but my destination has been totally changed in a positive way without me realising and without much effort on my part. I have had anxiety and a crippling negative mind-set since I was a teenager and I have tried medication and counselling which give short term boosts but it is hypnotherapy that has been surprisingly enjoyable and rewarding, I would highly recommend it to anyone who thinks they need a little extra help with something in their life."

"...I made an appointment with Michele...and enrolled for a
course (5) of "Treatment" for the claustrophobia. I only had four sessions
and apart from Flying (which I haven't tried yet, but sure I would be ok) I
am able to do many things I was unable to do, go in a lift, alone or with
other people, I went through channel tunnel no probs, I can shut the door in
a room etc."

"Saw Michele for my phobia of spiders. I can now say the word and be in the same room as them. She also gave me a lot more confidence in myself I am more positive, relaxed and happy. Would recommend going to see her, she made me a better person. Thanks again,"

- CR

"Thought about changing things so many times but I couldn't have done it without this."


"I can't thank you enough for all you have done for me over the last few weeks. I feel like a new me, positive, relaxed and happy.  I will keep up all the new techniques you have shown me. Thanks again."


"Many thanks for all your care and for giving me back my confidence."

- SA

"I came slightly apprehensive but I was met with such a friendly approach. Coming here has released me from a straight-jacket; realising that I had potential, which is something I hadn't felt before, but I definitely do now. I would most certainly recommend this therapy to anyone who needs a helping hand in their life so that they can enjoy it to the full!".


"Made me a different person. After 8 weeks it has totally changed me. I am so much calmer, and friends and husband have noticed the physical change in me."


“I don’t know what you did to me but it worked! I flew without drugs – cool! Many thanks.”


"My husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I asked for these sessions and they have been the best Christmas present I have ever had."


"I came to see you about 18 months ago to help me with weight loss and it was fabulous."


'My treatment by Michele has been invaluable. She is delightful to work with and I have found the sessions most enjoyable.'


"I asked if they do anything regarding weight loss to which I was advised about Hypnoband and given information to read, in January 2019 I booked for a course (5) of treatment: at this time my weight was in excess of 21 stone. After the third session( 3 weeks)...I had during this time lost weight.

In all this time I was not hungry as I had previously felt and started
making homemade chicken soups, homemade low fat cottage pie, eating plenty
of fruit and veg, stopped eating bread and still don't eat bread, no fast
food, still have alcohol but much more reduced.
Today I weigh 16 stone and 4 lbs and all feelings remain
unaltered I am still not hungry and listen to the listening aids supplied to
me but again not every day as when I started.
I am so lucky to have met and been treated by Michele as I believe I would
still be at least the 21 plus stone that I was. And she will forever have my thanks.
