Anon. (N.Ireland) Problems with social anxiety resolved using hypnoanalysis.

“And what about this for a venture? Would you like to know what my new hobby is? This is coming from a girl who couldn’t face anyone in daylight, stand in a queue or walk down the street without turning a rather impressive shade of crimson? I am now an official rep for Ann Summers generic premarin cream. Yes indeed, last night I went to a party with my unit organizer and she showed me the ropes. I thought I would cringe when the ‘fun objects’ came out but I thoroughly enjoyed myself and even persuaded a lady who was in her early forties to buy a vibrator! I was sitting through the party with tears of laughter streaming down my cheeks thinking, “I can do this, and I can do this!” That in itself is a great achievement. What do you think xxxxx by day…Ann Summer’s rep by night?

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

C, Fear of sick, Emetophobia and other problems successfully helped with The Thrive Programme™

I can’t thank Stephen enough. When i came to see him i was at my wits end. I got diagnosed with post-natal depression and got put on anti-depressants after having my daughter, I was so low and very angry, i hated myself and was convinced i was the worst mummy ever! My biggest problem though was that i was very anxious and had the biggest fear of being sick! The thought of being sick or even feeling sick terrified me!

I spent 6wks completing the Thrive programme with Stephen and it was the best thing I’ve ever done! Stephen put me right at ease and explained why i was feeling the way i was feeling which was very reassuring! We worked together changing my thinking patterns and now i feel like a whole new person. I’m now making plans for me and my daughter’s future as a family as i now feel strong enough to take things on. I’m planning a career and looking at places for us to live.

The biggest change I’ve noticed is my fear of being sick has literally vanished. That was the main thing holding me back and if my daughter was sick or i even felt sick i freaked out, now I’m super mummy 🙂

I honestly can’t thank Stephen enough as he has changed my life and i am now looking forward to the future.

Fear of Surgery & Confidence issues successfully helped with The Thrive Programme™

Hi Stephen,

I started the Thrive Programme with you a few months back and was telling my friends about it there and thought I must e-mail you to let you know how I’m getting on as I said I would! I must also send you a testimonial for your website at some point.

One of the big worries was an operation I was having for endometriosis (remember I went to have it before and had the anaphylactic reation?), well I had it last month and surprisingly a lot of the scar tissue had cleared up itself which is supposidly unheard of. I would put it down to me not being stressed and in general leading a much healthier lifestyle (practically stopped drinking, just don’t feel like I ‘need’ a drink) in the lead up to the operation. So it went really well and I recovered very quickly from it! I’m off all the big strong painkillers I was on that made me feel better at the time as I don’t need them, and realised the other day that I haven’t taken an anti-depressant in a month, so I’m off them aswell, drug free for the 1st time in years!

It has really had a profound effect on me, everyone is commenting how I’m like the old, confident me again. I had the problem of always wanting to be in control etc and worrying myself sick about dying and other things. I’ve just had confirmation that I’m getting a promotion at work and I know it’s because I’m good at my job and have worked hard rather than a ‘fluke’ as I would have thought before.
I’m standing up for myself with my husband, in fact I’ve turned into a right bitch, but in a good way. He used to threaten to leave all the time if I didn’t give into him, like give him money to pay his car / golf fees etc, now I’m just like ‘on you go love, you know where the door is.’ Funny he never actually goes and things are a lot better between us.

And lastly I’ve dyed my hair bright blonde from the standard brown colour I had it, just because for the 1st time in a long time I actually want to stand out my latest blog post.

Really can’t thank you enough for helping me with the programme, promised to send you a testimonial! I’ve told loads of people about it and really can’t praise it enough.
