Weight Control resolved with Hypnoanalysis

Hi Stephen, (testimonial as promised!!)

I just wanted to thank you so much for all the help you have given me over the course of my therapy. I have battled with my weight for years and was always looking for that “quick fix.” However having lost a lot of weight recently and getting to my dream size 12, only to start piling it on again, I realised there had to be underlying issues.

To finally understand why I felt the way I did about so many things truly does feel like a weight has been lifted: to describe it as a journey of self discovery is an understatement. I never considered myself as someone who had low self esteem but now I know I did and more importantly why……… and if it hadn’t been for your patience, understanding and good humour, I could never have got through it.

I have already lost some weight and look forward to when I can email you again and tell you that I’ve got where I want to be, but seriously I don’t feel nervous or underconfident about whether I will or not … I’m ready to take on the world!!

Ever grateful, J

“Listen Ruthie, believe me right, you’re gonna be ok……” Stevie Chan April 2008

This is what I heard over the phone just a few days after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Now I’m sure that those of you reading this that have either been diagnosed with cancer or that have loved ones delivered the same terrifying news might be wondering what is extraordinary about the above quote. I’m guessing that you will have either received or delivered the same or similar well meaning sentiment and I did many times both before surgery and throughout the course of my subsequent chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments premarin 1.25. But what Stevie said was totally different and had the most profound effect on me; whereas my dear friends and family desperately wanted it to be true, Stevie knew it to be true he knew that my mind could and would aid my return to full health – and guess what!!? ……..I am ok!! In fact I feel fitter and healthier now than I did before the diagnosis. The anaesthetist claimed that I was calmer and more relaxed than even he was, what’s more the speed of my post op recovery astounded the consultant and the whole nursing team let alone my friends and family! Chemotherapy and radiotherapy were a breeze – I’m NOT kidding! ….. during the course of these therapies I met some lovely people, I excercised more than I had done and enjoyed it too!, I paid more attention to my diet, I indulged myself whenever and with whatever took my fancy, I stopped worrying about things over which I had no contol and I feel so please and proud of what I’ve achieved. None of this was hard, not after I’d listened to Stevie.

Geraldine after undergoing Childbirth Hypnosis

geraldine100baby“I visited Stephen a couple of weeks after I found out I was expecting my first child. I had a phobia of doctors all my life and I knew that in order to enjoy my pregnancy I had to overcome the fear of ‘white coats’.

After one session I had overcome my phobia. During this session Stephen advised me of hypnosis he did around the pain of child birth and how hypnosis could make the experience more enjoyable and less painful. I have got to say I did not think this was possible but as with any first time mum I would have taken or done anything to alleviate my worries about childbirth.

So eight weeks before my due date I had three sessions with Stephen and was given cd’s to listen to during labour, I was still sceptical up until I went into hospital but I can say now my daughter was born in April and I had only four hours of labour and my only form of pain relief was gas and air. I had a wonderful stress free labour and my daughter was and continues to be a very relaxed and happy baby benicar online. If I am lucky enough to have a second child I will use hypnosis again.

Roy, Fear of sick, Emetophobia successfully helped with The Thrive Programme™

Hi Stephen,

Sorry about the delay in getting this to you as I have been very busy of late and I wanted to give it my full attention.

“I was suffering from anxiety, fear of sickness and struggling to come to terms with a recent bereavement. The slightest incident could set me off. When I first came to see Stephen it really was out of desperation as I couldn’t see a way out of my problems. From the first session I was made to feel completely at ease and felt I could discuss anything with him. I understood right from the start that he only had my best interests at heart which made a big difference to me.

Through his kindness, patience and support I began to get to the bottom of my issues which were much deeper than I’d thought, and yes, at times it was challenging, but ultimately very rewarding. I am more confident and stronger than I was before the sessions and I have been able to master my fears and anxieties.The most important thing I took away from my sessions was ‘I have control over my thoughts and feelings’. Stephen outlined this early on and it was built upon during the sessions. I managed to get to the cause of my problems. Deciding on this treatment was undoubtedly the best decision I’ve made and now I’m now getting on with the rest of my life.”

Roy.

P.S. Stephen just to say thank you again as you really have made a difference to how I live my life.
