WORK / LIFE BALANCE
*  'I came to Hazel after seeing the incredible results she got with a good friend of mine. Well I can safely say I was not disappointed. After only a couple of sessions I experienced a dramatic shift in my mindset about things that I had previously been very blocked about which has in turn had a massive positive impact on my quality of life. If you are struggling with deep rooted issues and can't seem to move forward then I can't recommend hypnotherapy with Hazel highly enough'.    V. M.

ANXIETY - WORRYING TOO MUCH ABOUT MY CHILD
* 'In February 2016 I was feeling terrible – awful anxiety meant I was jumpy, not sleeping properly, snapping at my family and generally unhappy.  I didn’t feel depressed as in miserable, just anxious.  For me that anxiety manifests itself in worry about my kids, specifically my daughter’s health, and the crippling fear they will become ill.  So I'd check them and check them and drive us all nuts.  The saddest part though was that however bad I seemed on the outside inside my head was a 1000 times worse'.
 
'Hazel told me she was sure she could change my mind-set and make me happy.  I don’t know why but I just believed her.  I think by the time she had explained the science behind the way our minds work, and how we can change even the most embedded beliefs and thought patterns I could see the logic.  And I’m all about the logic (even though I was living in a completely illogical part of my brain at the time).'
 
'That day I first went to see Hazel I would say I would rate happiness overall at 2 out of 10.  My anxiety was so bad it was impacting all aspects of my life.  After seeing Hazel for 10 sessions I would rate myself a 9 (sometimes even a 10) out of ten. People used to say to me “live in the moment” “enjoy each day” and I wanted to, but I just couldn’t do it.  But I can now.  And when life throws up problems I can deal with them because I have the tools to do it.  Negative thought patterns that have been part of my life for as long as I can remember are gone.  I feel free, clear and calm.'
 
'I was an average 39-year old mum of two who suffered badly with anxiety. I am now an average 39-year old mum of two who is happy and calm.  And that’s it really.  Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is just that – Solution Focused.  Whatever you are struggling with, if you want to fix it then Hazel can help you.  Just trust her - it works.'    Gemma

PROBLEMS WITH A WORK COLLEAGUE
*  "I came to Hazel at a time where I really felt I was lacking in confidence after a series of nasty run-ins with a co-worker left me feeling uncomfortable and anxious at work.   I always felt my emotions were never far from the surface - while everyone else had moved on from the situation at work, I never felt like I had truly put the experience behind me. Hazel really helped me to process my unresolved feelings and emotions, so now when I think about it I no longer feel like I am re-living what happened. I feel more confident, relaxed and much, much happier after seeing Hazel, and am incredibly grateful for the help she has given me".  H.J.

STOP SMOKING
*  'It's been 2 years since you did hypnotherapy on me to stop smoking. You can be pleased to know, I am still very much a non smoker!  
I have had no cravings, no desire to pick up a cigarette, absolutley fantastic.  Cold turkey & hypnotherapy is absolutely the way to go!  I still have issues with people smoking near me, the smell is disgusting!  I really didn't think this would work, but here we are, 2 years down the line with no desires at all.  Brilliant!  THANK YOU!

PANIC ATTACKS & ANXIETY
*  'I started seeing Hazel because I was suffering with anxiety, panic attacks & other associated symptoms & I didn't want to turn to anti-depressants.  I felt very low, tearful, lacking in confidence & was not enjoying life any more. Over a 12 week period with Hazel all that changed, she explained the workings of the brain so you had a clearer understanding of anxiety.  Hazel teaches you coping skills & she has many helpful suggestions up her sleeve to turn your negative thoughts into positive ones.
The sessions don't involve talking about your past, it focuses on the future & what you want out of life.  The trance sessions always left me feeling refreshed with an optimistic view for my future wellbeing.  Thanks to Hazel's support & words of encouragement I am much happier, more confident & enjoying life again.  My head is free of worry & negative thoughts but if it ever returns I would have no hesitation in seeing Hazel again.'  Margaret

A RECENT TEXT MESSAGE FROM A CLIENT COMING FOR WEIGHT LOSS:  
*  'Very happy with five and a half pounds off when I went to Slimming World.  Even happier with my new dedication to writing everything I eat down, and being very happy to stick to the vast array of food SW encourages you to eat.
 Also, I have decided to tick the things I achieve on my to do list rather than cross them out.  I think it’s more positive.  I also tick the day’s food when I’ve been perfect.  Have been perfect for 8 days now, and have no plans to change.
So, Go Hypno!'       Katie

DEPRESSION & WEIGHT LOSS
*  'When I first went to Hazel, I was in, what I thought to be a no win situation. I was anxious, off sick from a job I hated and I couldn’t see a way out. I couldn’t sleep; my relationship and physical health were suffering - I felt helpless. For 12 years I had been on medication for anxiety and depression. Over the years I learned everything I could about what I was experiencing but I had reluctantly accepted that depression was something I’d always have to live with.
After sessions with Hazel, I realised that I had a choice and I didn’t have to feel that low or anxious again. Solution focused hypnotherapy is exactly that, you do not focus on the negatives in your life, rather the positives and the solutions. Hypnotherapy is not done to you but with you. The sessions are positive, being in trance is pleasurable and you increase your understand of what you want and how to achieve it.
Making that first step to meet Hazel was terrifying at the time but the sessions have helped me to turn my life around. I have increased my self-confidence, reduced the amount of time spent worrying, I am not on any medication anymore and my sleep has improved massively. I was able to take control of my life and I now have a new job which I love, am looking forward to getting married, and starting a family next year.
I have also started working on losing weight and have lost one and a half stone already. Five months ago, I never believed that I could feel like this.
           I wish everyone knew about solution focused hypnotherapy!'  Lisa

Anxiety, permanent stress, insomnia, depression, panic attacks & tinnitus:
*  'I have suffered with it all. Then I met Hazel and things changed.

Her positive and realistic approach helped me to see things differently.  I was living in total darkness and I thought that I would never recover.  Hazel taught me some techniques for managing my anxiety.  She explained how the brain works, and the connection between my brain and my body.  This was very helpful because I suffered with terrible pain, and I was extremely worried that I would have a stroke or heart attack.
Her explanation was very logical: because I was stressed & anxious my brain was producing stress hormones, and creating pain.  I started my hypnotherapy about nine weeks ago now.  What a difference!  I feel much more positive.
I am not worried about having a stroke or a heart attack any more.  I am working full time, and now I enjoy doing my job (running my own business).  Now I am able to go to restaurants and other public places without having an anxiety attack.  Sometimes I feel nervous, but I can manage it: I concentrate on the present and the activity that I am doing.  That was not possible ten weeks ago.
I am still taking my antidepressants, but, with help from Hazel, I will be able to reduce the dose gradually, until I can live without needing that. 
My brain works in a different way now.  Happiness is everyday life _ no need for pills!  It is an amazing experience.'

ANXIETY DISORDER
*  "I went to see Hazel as a last resort to resolving chronic generalised anxiety disorder. I had spent hundreds of pounds on various therapies in a bid to cure the isolating anxious behavioural pattern I had adopted, none of which worked and I felt hopeless, at an all-time low.
Hazel and I didn't really discuss the anxious thoughts I often had, but focused on the positive aspects of my life. Even after my initial trance session I was astonished at the improvements I noticed. What amazed me more was how sub-conscious these changes were. I felt calmer, more relaxed and in control of my life. With every session that passed, I saw bigger improvements. Hazel really has changed my life and I will be eternally grateful for this." A.N.

 ANXIETY & WEIGHT ISSUES
*  "I went to Hazel for anxiety and weight loss.  Although we didn’t ever talk much about either, after the first session I had a trip to London which usually would have given me a bit of stress. There was nothing!   The next time, a lot went wrong with the journey but I felt just fine.  A few sessions on I was able to visit my mother in law without a sign of the huge anxiety and stress this usually causes.
Honestly, I wouldn’t have asked Hazel to make it possible for me to spend time with my mother in law stress-free because I would have assumed it was just too big an ask, like saying, ‘make me a millionaire.’  So when I found myself there, completely calm, it felt like a miracle.
Honestly I feel like a completely different person.  The weight loss is slower but I have dramatically changed what I like to eat.It really is a brilliant, life-changing therapy.  We could all benefit!"  Katie Fforde (Author)

RELATIONSHIP ISSUES
*  "Like myself, you will only meet Hazel because you have life difficulties, things that you cannot make sense of, that put you apart from others. 
However ‘off the moon’ you first feel, hang in there.  You will end up on terms with yourself, and ahead of others, who do not know, or understand, the mechanics of our heads."  G.H.

STOP SMOKING
*  "I had been a smoker for over twenty six years. I thought I would never be able to give up after numerous failed attempts, using conventional methods. After just one session of hypnotherapy I have not smoked for nine months. Amazing!
I would highly recommend hypnotherapy with Hazel to any smoker trying to give up." J.C.  (AGE 43)

RE-ORDERING MY LIFE
*  "I live in Stroud and work in London. On a Monday morning I would grab whatever I remembered I needed, stuff things in a bag, cycle down to the station like a maniac, usually catching the train by the skin of my teeth and sometimes missing it. Then I’d arrive in London without something or other that I really needed. Then I’d get stressed phone calls from my partner at home saying ‘I wanted to put x on your desk but couldn’t because there is no space. When I tried about twenty things slid off onto the floor’. Madness. And exhausting.
I don’t do that anymore.  I had tried repeatedly to get out of this counter-productive pattern of disorganisation and lateness that was impacting on my home and work life. It was only when I started working with Hazel that I found the tools to do so. And to do so for good. Hazel talks about ‘helicoptering up’ and getting a vantage point on the situation. She gives great helicopter rides." C. H.  Stroud

SLEEP
*  “Hazel has been a great help to me at a time when I was finding it difficult to relax and sleep.  I found her weekly sessions so helpful, as well as having her CD, also the way she explained how the brain works.”  Janet C.

CONFIDENCE
*  “I very much appreciate all that I have learnt from Hazel about rewiring the brain through trance.
Hazel's no-nonsense intuitive approach creates a very clear space in which to make beneficial changes to mental habits and belief systems.” Kate D.

CHRONIC HEALTH ISSUES & STOPPING SMOKING
*  “Having had serious doubts over Hypnotherapy – I have become a firm believer, and have put friends in touch with Hazel, or offered the CD for use to a friend who has a very difficult life. If it only manages to help us sleep better then it is fantastic. For me – I tend to giggle to myself more, I look more for the “good things”, and I have returned to listening to music again more than I was. And I still don’t want to smoke! Brilliant!”  Jude C.

MIGRAINE
*  “My experience during sessions:  Initial wariness of the 'hypnotic state' removed very quickly, very clear and interesting outline of how the brain functions, and its innate plasticity.  Continual reinforcement of the value of positive thinking at all levels of experience.  Relaxation and trance state was refreshing with some enjoyable 'parables' to play with.”  Chris V.
