Ruth, Cancer Help Programme

“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. 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.

Joan, Anxiety Problems resolved with Hypnoanalysis

To put it simply, the money I spent on Hypnotherapy was probably the best investment I have ever made. From the person who went to see Stephen for my initial consultation to how I feel now is nothing other than extraordinary. I discovered a lot about myself and how and why I felt the way I did. In the end it was almost like a lightbulb moment – the switch was flicked and the light flooded in!

I now am confident that I can handle anything that comes my way and my anxiety levels have reduced vastly. I am a much, much happier person. The whole process was not as daunting as I had imagined, largely due to Stephen’s professional, reassuring manner. In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson “…to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!” I breathe easier, much easier – thank-you Stephen!

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.

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.

Extract from the article by Newton Emerson for the ‘Irish News’

“I don’t feel that anything ‘happened’ to me, but then I don’t think that’s how you are meant to feel. What I can tell you for a fact is that in the past two weeks that have since passed I’ve really, really, really wanted a cigarette – but I haven’t had one.

Like the eyelids I could have opened but somehow didn’t, somehow I haven’t smoked.

I don’t know how much of that is down to me and how much is down to hypnotherapy.

But if the whole thing is a scam and I’ve just convinced myself it works, then it has worked, hasn’t it?”
