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.

Driving Test Nerves helped with Clinical Hypnosis/Suggestion Therapy

“Stephen, just wanted to let you know that I passed my driving test last Saturday description. The hypnotherapy really helped. I have to admit, I was a bit sceptical at the beginning but on the day I hardly had any nerves! I couldn’t have done it without your help!

Thanks S” (Belfast)

Fear of Public Speaking successfully helped with The Thrive Programme™

I went to Stephen to help with what I thought was a phobia of public speaking. As I spent more time with Stephen and reading Rob Kelly’s book I was made to realise it was all down to my badly managed thinking, this was the first step in my road to recovery.

As my time with Stephen passed my confidence began to grow and I realised what was important in life and what wasn’t. The 6 weeks have changed my life in many aspects, I am starting law in September which i am aware involves presentations which now don’t bother me, my “fear” of public speaking has diminished.

Thank you Stephen for all your help and giving me lifelong knowledge and skills when dealing with problems and stress 🙂

 

A client with O.C.D. treated with Hypnoanalysis

I simply feel much more confident now – in work and in my personal life. My self esteem has greatly increased – I feel like I matter, that I have a value. I walk taller. I no longer feel that I have no right to be here. I feel more physically attractive as a result and much more masculine. I feel powerful and in control.

I avoided relationships with the opposite sex to the point where I convinced myself that I was homosexual. Unbelievably, I now feel that it would be possible for me to have a relationship with a member of the opposite sex! For the first time in my life I feel sexually attractive.

I used to think and plan constantly. I would play out scenarios in my head, usually planning for when things went wrong – this led to the constant worry I experienced. This has virtually stopped. I feel a great deal lighter (of mind) and more spontaneous. I’m simply enjoying life more, now that I don’t have this constant conversation with myself. The O.C.D. has all but disappeared too. I can’t say that all of this has made me feel euphoric in any way, I just feel normal and content and that’s exactly what I wanted out of this. It has honestly been life changing.

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.
