Everyone has a different experience and yours will be unique, but it's good to hear from others who have worked with me and benefited from hypnotherapy.
"Day 13 without a cigarette today! Not finding it half as difficult as I have done previously, the mornings are fine, day times as work have been fine, the evenings are probably the most challenging time as I used to use smoking as an excuse to stop what I was working on to think. What is really helping me is the words you gave me; "I am not a smoker". If I feel an urge, I literally say those words and mentally move on. Super simple and incredibly effective. I'm 100% confident I will not go back to smoking now because of your work."
"I would just like to say a massive thank you to Louisa.
I was desperate for help with things but it turned out to be more than I thought. She's brill! Very welcoming, not at all patronising as I thought it may be. She made me laugh although our first meeting I cried!
Louisa gave me everything I needed to sort out my anxiety and sickness and I managed to work with her and now feel a different person with her help and direction. Such a forward thinking lady she would have the next step ready for me before I even new it just by me saying "oh by the way ... "and she would say "oh well as it happens I thought of that already so here we go" :-) Such a clever lady she knew me before I knew myself.
I have her on speed dial if I need a top up and I genuinely believe she is there for me, or anyone as it happens. I really feel at 52 years old I can finally move forward with my life in a new positive direction - something I would never have been able to do without her. I really was in bits when I first made contact with her."
"I can not thank Louisa enough for helping me motivate myself and overcome my emotional eating habits. Louisa took the time to get to know me and the reasons behind my issues. I am amazed at the positive results and how much my confidence has improved. Louisa has got such a calming nature and made me feel at ease throughout my sessions, she has got a real gift! My whole outlook on life has changed and I am truly grateful to Louisa for helping me achieve this."
"Just thought I should write and let you know how I got on with my flights last month. All the visual images of my safe place and imagining the golden light really helped. I had listened to the recording in the airport before we got on the plane ..so on both takeoff and landing I didn’t panic and just closed my eyes and it worked really well. I don't know why but I was a bit more jittery on the way back. I used the techniques for take off and landing and that wasn’t too bad but we did get some turbulence and I started to grip the arm rests a bit. But all in all I would say it was a very successful trip and was well worth coming to see you and learn the techniques that I will always use."
Fear of Flying
"I feel so much better about being outside now. Louisa helped me to find a way to feel braver, and I also use what I've learned with other situations at school. I felt very comfortable with Louisa and I wish I could see her all the time!! I was sad when our sessions finished.

"Hypnobirthing with Louisa made a huge difference to my pregnancy, birth and post-birth experience. Louisa understood what my issues with my first birth experience were (uncovering some things I hadn't ever acknowledged) and enabled me to 'park' the experience, looking forward in a positive way. I felt I was calm, in control and that this was something that I could do. Whether you choose/have home birth, midwife-lead, epidural, c-section etc I believe hypno supports it, and supports you when things deviate from your desired plan. At each stage I remembered Louisa's words and my prompts and kept calm and this helped me to control my pain.This is one of the most significant events in life and I am truly grateful to Louisa for enriching that experience."
"I can honestly say I haven't had any problems. I attended a wedding 2 days after the hypnotherapy and thought it would be difficult in a drinking environment but I didn't have a problem the whole weekend. Then came the major test - darts night! But it was easy - it never entered my head to wander outside for a smoke so I sat and chatted all night. I'm off on a golfing weekend next with 3 smokers - I know I'll be fine."
"Having suffered with tinnitus for years and becoming frustrated that the noise wouldn't go away, the hypnotherapy treatment I have received has not only helped me to relax, but has also taught me that I can control the volume myself and turn the noise down. I have found this better than the CBT treatment I previously tried."
"When I first came to Louisa I was sceptical as I had tried Hypno previously for a chronic sleep problem that had cursed me for over two decades. Louisa's warm and nurturing approach completely sold me from the first session and was a complete contrast to my previous experience. She was fully prepared for each session and made me feel so confident that this time it was going to be a success with her tailor-made and thorough approach. During each session she was incredibly in-tune with my needs. I feel she goes the extra mile with post session analysis of my experiences whilst under hypnosis and reinforcing what was covered in the session immediately afterwards. Her ongoing encouragement and dedication to her removing these blocks are shown by her checking-in between sessions via email. As well as helping me acknowledge and over-ride my negative self-sabotaging behaviours that have contributed to my insomnia, I have learnt so much about myself. As a result of the sessions I am sleeping so much more soundly now. Louisa has taught me instead of dreading bedtime, to give myself permission to sleep and I am seeing the results now. There will be times when my sleep suffers but I am more accepting of
these blips now and not focusing on them to the point where they escalate and become an issue once more. As well as digging into my sleep issues and the reasons behind it, Louisa has prepared me for some daunting situations that have arisen during our time working
together. She has given me some invaluable skills and a new-found confidence. What a bonus! There is no limit to what hypnotherapy can help with and from now on she will be my go-to when that negative inner-talk needs a good dose of Louisa's wisdom and clarity."
"Louisa has been my hypnotherapist to help me cure my nail biting issue. Louisa took time to understand me, what drives the habit and how I would feel once it was taken away. She then developed a bespoke and personal script to be used in the sessions which highly resonated with me. I am pleased to say the results were an instant success - I no longer felt the need to bite my nails. Thank you!
"I was at a loss as to how to help my son...I wasn't sure if hypnotherapy was appropriate for a child. We went for a free consultation with Louisa to find out more and I felt at ease straight away. It was instantly apparent that my son was really comfortable with Louisa, she's very lovely, so we embarked on a short programme of sessions. I have been so surprised at the positive results and how much of a difference it's made to my son's sense of confidence, not just with the initial phobia, but also with other situations at school. My son enjoyed the whole process so much, and was so comfortable with Louisa that he was actually sorry when the programme came to an end!

"The no smoking is going really well - other people mention the fact that I've stopped more than I think about it! I'm now going to the gym 3 times a week and I can keep going longer without getting out of breath."
"I reached out to Louisa for help understanding my eating habits and my hidden motives behind them. She almost immediately uncovered what the issue was. She then worked with me and helped me to realise how some of the difficult situations can be overcome. I was amazed how quickly we reached the point in my therapy where I could see tangible benefits of our weekly sessions."
