Client Testimonials

Not sure if hypnotherapy will work for you? What am I like as a therapist?

Below you can find testimonials from past clients I have worked with on a range of issues. 

Alcohol Moderation

Alcohol has always been a part of my social life , not to an alcoholic or damaging level but a glass or two most nights several more at dinner parties , stressful days , work events , social functions etc. Have been last man standing at most parties for as far back as I can remember. I have given alcohol up many times over the years mainly with a dry January or a post holiday month off even, but when I went back to drinking always seemed to overdo it again. I never managed the magical moderate drinking.

I procrastinated about booking a consultation with Tansy from about January did another dry month and went back to normal drinking. In March I finally booked a telephone consultation with Tansy and by the end of the call was convinced this was the way to go and am absolutely delighted with the results.

Working with Tansy has been really enjoyable , I was ready to make a change and really wanted a more moderate approach to drinking and from the outset Tansy’s approach has given me huge confidence in the process and has delivered truly amazing results. I always leave a session feeling so happy and relaxed, with a real sense of calm that stays with me.

The results from working with Tansy have been amazing, I am really enjoying the non drinking days as well as still having drinking days too but now I find that I am not rushing a glass I’m naturally drinking slower and savouring the flavour. I am more than happy to leave a drink if I’ve had enough and am really confident when I’ve decided to finish drinking for the evening. I chose to reduce my intake to 14 units a week, which seemed like it was going to be impossible from around 80-90 previously. Working with Tansy I have genuinely found the change easy and I feel great, lost weight without trying. I’ve had several events in the month including my wedding anniversary had a great bottle of wine and still stayed within my target. Tansy has also really helped motivate me back into a fitness regime. The surprise bonus has been how less stressed I feel now, I genuinely thought that having a glass of wine after work was the way to unwind at the end of a day and it’s not a glass I even think about now.

Alcohol Moderation

I wanted to cut down on binge drinking as i was never able to stop once I had started. I seemed to drink more than everyone else, be the most drunk and end up with 2 day hangovers. To manage this I would avoid going out as couldn’t trust myself just to have a couple. But most of the time I would go out anyway and ride out the hangover and endure the anxiety that would follow.

Just after the first session of hypnotherapy I felt so much more in control on a night out. My drinking slowed down and I was very conscious about my limits and not crossing the point of no return. I have my Sunday’s back now. I would never plan anything on a Sunday as knew I would normally be in no fit state to do anything.

I felt very relaxed and Tansy really understood my issues and suited my sessions accordingly.

Weight Loss

I’ve been to Weight Watchers and various other organisations to help support me. They do work if you follow the program, but sometimes you find yourself at a level that is below par and you have no will power therefore attainment is far off.

Hypnotherapy is not scary because you trust your therapist, you know that you wouldn’t be taken anywhere you don’t want to go. It’s not like hypnosis on a TV program!! I felt relaxed, in control and that I was gently being lead to a greater understanding of my problem. I gained confidence in my daily life functions. I learnt how to be in control of my anxieties and disappointments and to face up to my problems and then do something about them.

Weight Loss

I was a yoyo dieter I had joined several slimming clubs. I preferred hypnotherapy as it is great for feeling less stressed and more relaxed - counselling doesn't relax you in the same way.

Please give it a go i didn't think it would work for me it has helped me in many ways i think about what i eat snack less and eat a lot slower so i feel more full now.

Tansy is a lovely friendly lady who always made me feel at ease also very easy to talk too.

Motivation and Job Search

I got a job before I had even finished my 3 sessions!

I have tried counselling, CBT and another hypnotherapist. Hypnotherapy, in my experience hits the spot more directly without the need to go over one's past, I would suggest it is absolutely worth a try.

It depends a lot on the practitioner - As with all such services it is important to feel some sort of connection to the practitioner. Even though Tansy was just launching her career as a hypnotist her aura of calm was very real. I felt very comfortable and relaxed, Tansy has a very calming and comforting energy.

Chronic Joint Pain

Tansy made me feel very safe and cared for, she taught me relaxation techniques and now I am more able to manage my stress & joint pain.

I had been struggling with joint pain and feeling stressed, Hypnotherapy is a very helpful method for managing stress and reducing pain.

Alcohol Moderation

I tried to self manage from time to time but really needed a boost and support. Although it’s early days, I find that Tansy has given me motivational tools to set me on my way.

Hypnotherapy is individual but it taps into an inner desire to tackle a problem if you really are fed up with that habit or behaviour. You can’t be hypnotised if you don’t want to and can come out of it whenever you want. I had counselling many years ago for another issue but found it too prolonged and retrospective. Hypnotherapy with Tansy is forward thinking and doesn’t ponder on what went wrong in the past but what you can aim for in the future.

I Immediately liked Tansy - her warmth, genuine interest and empathy. Our sessions were relaxed and I felt very trusting as she was not prescriptive in her methods. She made me feel extremely comfortable and because she draws on her own experiences, as well as her training and research, this allowed me to be more candid with her and together work out the best strategies for me. She is also realistic about the process.

Insomnia

I found the action plan Tansy gave me was helpful & something i can work on. I found her visualisation very good and personal to me.

I have had counselling in the past that address issues through talking therapies that uncover childhood issues but this takes sometime to do so along with the drama. Hypnotherapy gets to the point of an issue at the beginning of the first sessions, addressing a single issue through practical visualizing and offers a robust action plan at the end that gives options to try out exercises to aid sleep which i found useful.

Depression

I was struggling to see the good in life, I felt like everything was too much and I was not coping with work, home, finances or my social life. I needed some help clearing my thinking and seeing things differently. After months of struggling, I decided I needed help, and found and contacted Tansy that day.

I was anxious going to my first session, but Tansy reassured me that hypnosis is actually a very pleasant experience. I was concerned about losing control of myself or clucking like a chicken for the rest of my life. But in actuality, it is a very relaxing and pleasant process, throughout which you have total control of your faculties. Hypnotherapy is very pleasant and a way to have someone else guide you through the dark times and into better times.

After our session together I felt great! I went from being overwhelmed and depressed to now feeling positive, back to my outgoing self. After Tansy fixed that problem, I came back for help with being a bit overweight and Tansy has been great with this different problem too.

Tansy not only delivers but over-delivers, with preparation and follow up from each session. It has been a really great experience and I recommend anyone to give it a try.

Weight Loss

I was a Yo-yo dieter but I never got to the bottom of the original cause of weight gain. I had also tried some CBT in the past, but haven't been very successful with it. I've enjoyed the hypnotherapy because I needed someone else to 'hold my hand' during the process and also actual hypnosis was very relaxing and comforting for me. I looked forward to it every week, as well as the listening to the recordings during the week!

If you are hesitant just go for it but remember that it takes time because you are re-learning years and years of wrong internal messages/cues/behaviours. Be patient. It all makes sense in the end!

I think Tansy has got her sessions just right. It is really nice being in a home environment rather than a clinical one. Having someone who understood what I was going through, who was very empathetic and patient, but also who knew when it was time to 'get tougher' with me and then hand over the reins to me to go forward myself.

Anxiety

Before hypnotherapy I tried medication and seeing Doctors as well as self-care but this was virtually ineffective.

I had also tried CBT but it was a short-term solution only and is forgotten in the long-term. With hypnotherapy it is long-term and the sessions are recorded so you can top up yourself - It is brilliant in comparison. If people are unsure about hypnotherapy, I would tell them it is 80-90% effective and for them to overcome any stereo-types about hypnotherapy. It is a different type of therapy but is very useful and helpful. My condition was not amenable to treatment but this cured me.

I feel comfortable and have confidence in Tansy's abilities. She is excellent and knowledgeable.

Hypnotherapy is effective but more importantly the therapy works.

Unhealthy Eating Habits

I ignored the problem, convinced myself that it wasn’t serious and this is how I am. Hypnotherapy I felt was much structured I had a specific issue I wanted to tackle and left with measurable tasks that I had to do each week.

Tansy is brilliant. Her voice is magical and very soothing. She makes sure you are left empowered with clear objectives and realistic achievable, measurable tasks you say you can accomplish. The focus always comes back to how you can implement the things you want to change.

I’m on a definite path to healthy eating and I was able to discover that my resistance and reluctance stemmed from the awful school dinners I was subjected to as a child! I had no idea! I use to always think that culturally we just didn’t have enough vegetables in our cooking, which of course isn’t the case.

Anxiety

I had used CBT and psychotherapy before and I found Hypnotherapy can go to the root of the problem without having to spend years digging around for it.

Hypnotherapy is a very effortless kind of therapy, you can turn on the recordings before bed and fall asleep listening to them and they will still be effective as the subconscious will be listening.

I looked forward to my sessions with Tansy she has such a calming effect and is a hugely positive person that instills confidence in a very easy manner.

Tansy has had such a positive impact on where I am at the moment. I am considering a career change and Tansy helped build my confidence to be able to take this move fearlessly. She has a natural ability to empower people and is hugely gifted when it comes to helping people see their potential. Her scripts are so tailor made and personal that she stands out from any other hypnotherapist I've come across.
