I first approached Paul in February 2010.
Having just opened my own business after months of hold-ups, rather than being excited and proud of what I had achieved, I was suffering great anxiety, sleepless nights and weight loss.
My partner didn’t know what to do with me any more as one minute I would be fine the next I would be in tears.
My first phone call to Paul was a tearful answer phone message.
Within an hour he phoned me back and was so kind and understanding that I felt better. I arranged a consultation, and agreed a number of sessions.
Within 3 or 4 sessions I felt far less anxious was able to think more clearly and by end of my sessions was able to close some deep rooted emotional issues that I had been carrying with me for years, most of which by this time seemed immaterial.
Since finishing my therapy, I feel so much calmer, I love my business and am enjoying the challenge of building a future.
My relationships with both my partner and my daughter, with whom I always fought, have greatly improved. I take each day as it comes and don’t worry.
Paul was so patient, non-judgemental, and easy to get on with……and has really made a difference to my life.
Thank you Paul
Mrs. K: Hypnotherapy Solves Severe Depression
“Paul is the ultimate professional, easy to talk to and very competent.
What can I say about a man and a process that not only stopped me wanting to kill myself but also made me want to live my life to the fullest?
I was so desperate I thought nothing could help me the antidepressants did not do much and the doctors just kept upping my dose to no avail.
My family were so stressed being on suicide watch 24/7 just waiting for me to try to kill myself again!
Within two months I am happy, I love my life as well as myself.
Anyone reading this in the depth of despair and pain caused by severe depression will think it cannot be possible but please believe me when I say you really can turn your life around with Paul’s help.
I do not exaggerate when I say that without Paul and the hypnotherapy I can honestly tell you I would be dead or in a mental hospital.
My family and friends are still commenting about how much I have changed in such a short time. Everyone comments on how I am now more confident, happy, outgoing and content than I have ever been.
All I can say is give it ago.
What do you have to lose?
You cannot be more sceptical than I was when I started the process, now I cannot shout about it loud enough.
Words fail me when I try to express how grateful I am to Paul.
Thank you is not even close to the everlasting gratitude, I will feel until the day I die!”
“I contacted Paul in March 2011 as I had decided that I must do something to change how restricted I felt due to lack of confidence.
After an initial chat Paul recommended the Changing Limiting Beliefs course.
I learnt so much about myself and how to change my way of thinking that it has completely changed my life around.
I no longer feel restricted by things and feel like I have had a new start, I now know I can succeed in anything I put my mind to.
After suffering with depression and lack of confidence for the majority of my life, I didn’t expect much from the course initially…
How wrong was I?
I am now completely off the anti depressants that I have been on for the last 3 years and feel so very confident in everything I choose to do.
I was honestly so impressed with the course and Paul’s guidance that I would genuinely recommend Paul Lee to anyone who is not happy with the way they think their life is going.
If you are reading this, then pick up the phone and have an initial chat with Paul, what have you got to lose? life could be so much better.
Thanks again Paul.”
Mrs. S: The Thrive Programme helps Exam Nerves (Career progression)
“I contacted Paul on the recommendation of a friend in March 2011, as i was very worried about an exam I needed to pass to help me further my career.
The therapeutic technique used was Changing Limited Beliefs. (Now known as “Thrive”)
Since having 7 lessons followed by a hypnosis session, I feel very confident and assertive at home and in my work place.
It has encouraged me to stay positive in all kinds of situations.
I feel it was a valuable experience.”
“I came to see Paul in February 2011, as i was suffering with anxiety, depression and separation anxiety, also had great difficulty sleeping!
I can honestly say I had hit the lowest point in my entire life and didn’t know what to do or who to turn to, I had tried a lot of different types of therapy but they didn’t work one bit and made my situation worse, my last and only option was Paul.
I didn’t hold out much hope but I didn’t have anything to lose, but to my amazement, with Paul’s help and determination and the therapy that he chose for me.
I am now not the same person I was 5 months ago.
I have turned into the most confident person I have ever been, I feel I can do anything if I put my mind to it, all the things I could never do, I can do them now.
I don’t struggle with day to day living like i used to, I haven’t felt anxious in a while and if I ever was to feel that way again then I am confident enough to say I would beat it as fast as it came.
The best way I can describe Paul and Hypnoanalysis and changing limited beliefs is FANTASTIC!
Paul has given me my life back in so many ways, he has taught me a better way of thinking and this was the best decision I have ever made in my entire life.
Anyone who is thinking of having any kind of therapy from Paul then go for it, it really does work!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Mr. D: I lost weight with the Hypno-band Weight Loss System
In four months I have lost 2 1/2 stone I can’t believe it!! (I keep saying it time and time again )
When I came and saw you in May for a group of sessions based on having a Hypno-band, I was not convinced it would work. But you gave me the confidence and inspiration to finally get on track and achieve what I had been trying to do ( but never achieved ) over the previous year.
Before I came to see to see you I was vastly overweight (18 stone ) but now I am down to 15 1/2 stone. My life has changed back to the way it should be.
I can play football and hold my own again, I can walk mountains without suffering afterwards.
My confidence and self esteem is higher than it has been for a long, long time.
I plan to lose more weight and get down as low as possible. The target we set was 14 stone, so I am going for it. I believe it is achievable
What’s really funny is that I have put clothes away because they are obviously too big for me, and I have got clothes back out that where too small for me but now they are also getting too big ( the wife has said I have got to make do for a while though! ).
I am even wearing “slim fit” clothes. Something I thought I would never do
Thanks again for your help. I can’t thank you enough for getting me on track and giving me the confidence to believe I can achieve it
You’re a top bloke!
D (P.S. My hat was very tasty, especially with the cous cous!)
Mrs W: Bus Driver loses weight with Hypno-Band in Wolverhampton
I went to see Paul on 24th June 2011. We sat and chatted and I opted for the Hypno-Band Weight Loss System.
When I started I weighed in at 317 lbs (22 stones 11 lbs) and I have now been following the programme for 12 weeks and currently weigh 292 lbs- a loss of 25 lbs!!
I’m not saying it is easy because it isn’t, but I CAN hear my “inner voice” telling me “that’s enough now, you don’t NEED any more.”
I feel so much happier in myself, plus, because of the weight loss, my knee and back are not so painful and I sleep so well now.
I would recommend this weight loss system…I REALLY would…..S.
Mrs K: I Quit Snacking with Hypno-Band in Wolverhampton
Having reached the heaviest I had ever been I decided it was time to take control of my eating and get my weight sorted out ONCE and FOR ALL. I had heard about Hypnotherapy and decided to give it a go.
From the first meeting with Paul I knew that this was just what I was looking for, something to get my mind back into the right place to deal with my weight issue.
From the very first session my eating habits changed.
I can honestly sat that I have NOT SNACKED AT ALL!!!
I eat sensibly and what I want, I just eat a lot less of it and I’m on my way to reaching my target weight without any difficulty.
I’m so glad I took “the plunge”. The HYPNO-BAND has certainly worked for me and my thanks to Paul for helping ME to make it happen.
I eat regular healthy meals and just stop when I feel full!!
I came to see Paul in July for help with some issues I had throughout my life.
I grew up in a household where one of my parents was very depressed and in an environment that was heavily influenced by the beliefs they had as Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Although I am successful and have a great life, I still had very low self esteem and felt that I needed to please others to feel good; that I wasn’t respected; that I was in constant competition with others; very anxious about what others thought of me.
I had tried to change these beliefs through other techniques such as NLP in the past but the beliefs came back after a while.
After an initial consultation with Paul I decided to try Pure Hypnoanalysis.
This really helped to bring up some of the experiences and beliefs that I had.
With the help of Paul I was really able to see some of the traits that I had carried forward from my childhood.
I did find that it was more difficult to bring back experiences as we got further into the process so I made a decision to try ‘Changing Limiting Beliefs’ instead.
The insight from the Hypnoanalysis really helped me with the programme.
I have just finished CLB and I feel fantastic.
My life has really changed, I have this wonderful feeling of control.
I may end up in situations that are stressful but my outlook and perspective has completely changed.
It is like having a bubble around you and the negativity just bounces off.
I am really glad I took the time to do some something good for myself and I know my life is just going to get better and better everyday…
Thanks again for helping me.
Miss H: I changed my negative outlook with The Thrive Programme
I contacted Paul in May 2011 when I was in a “bad place” in my life.
It had come to the time whereby I felt my bad habits had taken over my life, I was in complete despair and I couldn’t see a way out.
Quite a number of times I had tried different avenues to cure my problem but several failed attempts left me convinced that I couldn’t do it on my own and I needed someone or something to help me.
Paul’s diplomatic and objective nature instantly gave me peace of mind, and I was willing to do whatever it took.
Several hypno-analytical sessions later, and a number of changing limiting belief sessions thereafter I feel like I have been set free.
My life is getting better and better, I am feeling brighter and brighter, with the new me being able to be everything I have always wanted to be.
The tensions and strains of everyday life no longer feel like a burden to me, as Paul has taught me to have power and control over myself that I appeared to have lost somewhere along the line.
I now feel like I can take on anything, and any obstacles that may have hindered the old me, now pass me by without my noticing.
My friends and family often remark how strong I am, or how I cope with things so effortlessly.
I now feel I have the life tools to withstand anything that comes my way.
I would recommend both hypno-analytical therapy and the changing limiting beliefs programme to anyone who is ready to change their life for the better and release any issues that may be restricting their life.
I also would like to thank Paul for being consistently patient with me.
His empathetic but firm disposition, allowed me the time and space to grow in the direction necessary for me.
I first contacted Paul as I suffered from a number of things – which were really affecting my life. Low self esteem, social anxiety, no confidence, panic attacks but most of all emetophobia.
All of the above effected my life in a big way.
I wouldn’t eat out unless completely unavoidable, I wouldn’t travel if I wasn’t the driver, I wouldn’t go out on my own or with friends except for lunch break.
I wouldn’t eat new food, I would only trust 2 people to cook for me (my mom and my partners mom) I didn’t go on holiday, I wouldn’t speak in front/to people I didn’t know well face to face.
I would panic to the point where we would nearly have to call an ambulance if I felt poorly, I wouldn’t stay in the house on my own, be around anyone with a bug or who had been in contact with someone who had been poorly and as for babies – that was a no go!… The list could go on forever.
Paul suggested a course in Changing Limiting Beliefs. (Now called the Thrive Programme)
With Paul and at home, I worked through my course book completing all exercises and talking through my issues at weekly sessions.
Since I have completed the course – now 8 weeks ago I have improved a lot.
I have completed 2 presentations with work one where my boss drove me to Wycombe and one in my office. Both in front of around 15 people.
I didn’t get embarrassed or panic when I felt sick with nerves.
I have been to Leeds for a supplier meeting.
I have been with my Nan through her fight with cancer – even through the sickness!
I have sat with my sister during her morning sickness and my friends children when they had the dreaded winter sickness bug!
I went to a charity comedy night in a packed pub been to the cinema with my partner and Christmas shopping to Merry Hill 3 times (once on my own!). Not once panicking that I couldn’t see the door.
I have even been promoted at work and now run a small team.
I let my partner cook tea and have even started to eat a wider variety of food.
I stay on my own at home when my partner does the night shift and I haven’t had a panic attack in over 3 months.
I have dealt with my own sickness – not being sick but feeling sick.
I have come to learn that my emetophobia is an obsession and by learning new ways of thinking I can overcome it.
I am still not keen on the thought of being sick but I no longer go into complete melt down. I get my hot water bottle, put the TV on and distract myself. We have even been talking about having children in the new year!
I never thought I would of got this far and if it had not been for the help and support I got from both family, friends and Paul I don’t think I would be where I am now.
Paul makes talking through your problems easy.
He does not judge or call you stupid, he listens and helps you manage your thoughts/beliefs/fears better.
The course was definitely a good choice for me.
I still have things to change and develop and I still work from my book at home but I am getting there – my life has definitely improved for the better.
Kay:- A stone & a half lighter with the Hypno-Band System
I started my Hypnoband Therapy in February 2012.
I can honestly say i didn’t think it would work, but 3 months down the line i am a whole stone and a half lighter plus i am still losing.
Without Paul’s help i would still be agonising over my weight problem, i am so glad i gave hypnotherapy a try because i have a more positive approach towards everything i do.
Adam Quit Cigarettes with Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy in Wolverhampton
Hi mate it’s Adam here, I came to see you about stopping smoking last Tuesday, just thought I’d let you know I’ve done over a week now, the first two days were hard but now I feel GREAT!…….
It’s now been five weeks with me as a Non-Smoker and it feels GREAT to be in control!!!
I first contacted Paul in May 2012, as I was due to go on holiday and have a fear of birds, so I wanted to try hypnotherapy to help with my fear.
At the same time I was suffering anxiety about my health.
Before my appointment with Paul I had seem my doctor about health worries and he had suggested counselling as he thought it was anxiety that was giving me the health issues.
On my first meeting with Paul, I found him to be very easy to talk to and cry to (as i did often in the first few weeks).
I explained that although I had originally booked for hypnotherapy regarding birds, I told him everything else i was feeling and worried over and what my doctor had said.
We chatted and Paul recommended the Thrive programme.
I decided to give it a go.
I read two chapters per week of the book and we discussed these at the next appointments and my answers to any of the questions.
I must say after the first three weeks and still feeling anxious I was a bit down hearted but i explained all this to Paul.
I then went on holiday and was totally relaxed, no health worries and even managed to sit eating outdoors when a bird landed by me.
I saw Paul on my return and explained that Id been totally relaxed on holiday but anxious when got home, Paul explained that I should take the positives from it and that I should be able to see that when I’m relaxed I am fine and therefore it is all about my style of thinking.
I completed the course and went on my way.
I was much more relaxed and had lots more self confidence.
It has now been about a month since my course finished.
I am most definitely more confident, not worried about what I think others think of me.
I still get anxious at times, but am doing my best to remember all i have learnt and to go back to reading the thrive book to help myself and not let things get me down like before.
Paul is very easy to talk to, witty, and doesn’t judge, I would recommend this thrive course.
Thank you Paul Mrs C
Joan helped us lose weight with Hypno-Band
Earlier this year my friend and I went to see Joan about having the Hypno-Band.
We were very sceptical about hypnosis and Joan put us totally at ease, she is a lovely lady and explained everything really well.
We went for 4 sessions and by the end of that we’d both lost nearly 1 stone, we’ve continued to listen to the Cd’s she gave us and I have now lost nearly 2 stone and my friend has lost 3 stone!
We are thrilled with the results and would tell anyone wanting to lose weight to give it a try.
You might think it’s quite costly but when you think how much money you pay to go to a slimming club it is a lot cheaper to go to Joan, and the results are so much better and last longer.
It’s a life change and Joan seems to get that into your head.
We would recommend her to anyone.
Carol and Amanda
I first came to see Paul in October 2012 with my Fiancé about my ’emetophobia’, as at the time I felt the whole process was too delicate to deal with alone.
I was so down about my ‘emetophobia’ that coming to see Paul was my last resort, after having a course of unsuccessful CBT on the NHS.
After this had failed, I really didn’t see a way of me getting better.
Along with my ‘emetophobia’, I had picked up other traits that were really bringing me down, such as anxiety, panic attacks and low self esteem.
‘Emetophobia’ put my life on hold in many ways.
I never felt I could tackle things on my own, such as simple every day things like eating a meal out, and on very anxious occasions, even in my own home, purely because I feared I would be sick.
I would find it extremely difficult when I went on holiday, as I feared the foreign food would make me ill.
Being around people who were ill would send me into a complete anxiety attack, and I would quarantine myself to ‘protect’ me from the ‘sickness bug’.
Before I came to see Paul, I never imagined myself ever having children, as the whole thought of going through a pregnancy, and then having to look after a baby/child when it was ill, was just unthinkable.
Paul knew just the programme for me called the ‘Thrive’ programme, a programme I read and completed at home, and would then come to him weekly to review my progress, that unbelievably, we began to notice improve really quickly.
Paul increased my confidence so much, and because of that, the effort I put in to getting myself better increased.
Through working with Paul, I have come to realise that I don’t, and even never have had ‘emetophobia’ (hence the quotation marks around that word every time I mention it) instead; I just have badly managed thinking and limiting belief systems.
It was thinking that I had ‘emetophobia’ that kept the ‘fear’ going.
It’s amazing how much you actually relax once you realise the phobia isn’t effecting you, but instead your own thoughts and limiting beliefs are.
When I have unhelpful thoughts crop up in my mind, I am able now to control them, and when I say to myself that its me who’s creating these thoughts, no one else, and certainly not the thing called ‘emetophobia’ it puts things back into perspective, and I can soon go back to getting on with my day-to-day tasks.
Eating out is now a pleasure, not a massive worry, and I can happily eat out with people who I’m even not that close to.
However when I do have the OCCASIONAL blip, I know now that everyone can have a bad day, and that it’s ok to feel it sometimes, it doesn’t mean I’m taking a step back.
Since meeting Paul, I’ve set up my own small business making balloons, and couldn’t be happier.
Eventually, I’d like to quit my day job and do it full time. It’s since my self-esteem has grown that I’ve been able to do this.
I travelled over an hour away from my home on my own, motorway driving, to attend balloon classes, and when there, did not have any panic/anxiety/’emetophobic’ thoughts, because I was doing something I absolutely loved, but of course before I met Paul, this wouldn’t have been possible.
I also have better relationships with my friends, as before I found it very hard to become close to anyone other than my fiancé.
Through limiting beliefs, I never thought I’d get on with other girls, but since starting the programme with Paul, I have amazing relationships with my friends.
I went shopping for a whole day with my friend, something I previously found incredibly intimidating and anxious, but I had a wonderful time, and the friendship between us grew even closer.
I’ve even been asked to be a godmother to one of my friends daughters.
Paul’s been fantastic, we’ve laughed more times than what I’ve felt down, and in a therapy session, that’s pretty unheard of.
Before I came to see Paul, I couldn’t actually say what I wanted to do with my life, I couldn’t imagine my future.
Now, I know exactly what I want to do, where I want to be, and the thought of starting a family further in the future no longer scares me, but actually excites me.
Thanks a lot Paul, keep in touch.
When i first arranged my appointment for hypnotherapy with Joan, i was quite apprehensive as i had never been hypnotised before and didn’t know if it would work.
However, after the first session i knew that this was the way to go.
Joan helped me to overcome my issues with social phobia, anxiety and low self esteem and get back to feeling like me.
Family commented after the first session about how much better i was and this continued to improve with each session which was a fantastic feeling.
I would definitely recommend this route to others who feel they need help. It was a great help to speak freely about the things i had held back for so long and to feel free from the pain they caused but still able to use my past experiences as a positive tool to learn from.
Thank you Joan for all your help!
“S” – 14 year old girl at 17 stones….Helped with the Blowaway Technique – Hypnosis for Children
Just before Christmas I contacted Joan in the hope she could help my 14 yr old granddaughter who has a weight problem & who had become seriously overweight.
We had, in the past, taken her to her doctor who then had referred her to a consultant and after several test procedures and two years of constant strict dieting failed to help her and then dismissed her problems as “genetic”…. “take her home and love her” is what we were told!
Then the bullying started and in order to cope with this and the usual teenage growing up problems she began to “comfort” eat and it began a circle that needed to be broken.
She started to become withdrawn and would sometimes fly into rages, say horrible things & she started to say she wished she was dead and threatened to commit suicide.
She would put bruises on her arms and all the family were at our wits end.
So i read on the internet about Joan and took my grandaughter along for an initial consultation, i was very impressed right from the start with how Joan welcomed us to the centre and although my granddaughter was very nervous and scared I saw she liked Joan.
She talked to both of us to try to get a picture of what was going on in my granddaughters life and to my amazement she told Joan everything!!
She was very professional in her approach & was warm and understanding and at the end she said yes I am sure that I can help and if you want me to i can most certainly do my best.
So we set up a session which took place just before Christmas.
We both attended the session which was one of the best experiences I have had in a long time just wonderful !!
After the session was over I noticed a difference in her right away she seemed much more relaxed on the way home she just talked and talked where usually on would go her earphones and she would withdraw.
We noticed her appetite had decreased she no longer wanted to eat just for the sake of it, she did not crave chocolate and crisps and over the past weeks several people have commented on how she is losing weight!
She keeps in touch with Joan via Facebook and i know we can take her back if we need to but right now she is doing fine and i along with the rest of the family don’t know how to thank Joan……
just to let you know I had a fantastic holiday, flights went great, you have been a great help and I shall recommend you to everyone, thank you for all your help
Hello PaulI come back from my holiday Friday night after 2 weeks of complete relaxation.
For the first time I was able to relax right up to the moment I went home including when I was on the plane.
I did the DREAM exercises before I went on and it really helped me to have full control on the plane with no panic moments at all.
I took the first flight for granted, when it come to my second flight I didn’t do no techniques or exercises because I thought I would be sound which lead to a nervy flight. I didn’t think about the flight until I was on it, once I was on I started to let myself lose control.
I proved to myself that although you can do it once doesn’t mean you don’t ever need to do the exercises again.
I know because I didn’t do the exercises or didn’t apply myself properly was the reason I had a not so good second flight.
All it comes down to though is that I didn’t control it properly and allowed myself to create my fear again.
Next time though it will be under control and hasn’t knocked my confidence one bit I am going to succeed and will totally rid it soon.
The way I look at it is my first flight will be my motivation for everything now.
It was full proof to myself that the DREAM technique literally works a dream to me when applied!
Nothing’s an obstacle now I like to see it as challenge which drives me on even more to gain full control. I now want to start seeking heights rather than step away from them.
I couldn’t thank you anymore for helping me to understand myself and giving me the right guidance to allow me to understand how to gain control.
You introduced me to something that has and will continue to change my life.
Thank you again for everything Paul.
Hi Joan not sure if you remember me, I came to two of your classes and just wanted to say I love listening to your cd and I’ve lost 10lbs in three weeks yay me!
Thanks to you Keeping me positive and swapping my desire for biscuits with flavoured water!
Thanks again love S
From Mrs S, Wolverhampton: Hypno-Band
I’d read about Hypnoband therapy last year and I started to review the this web-site before Christmas, reading through the testimonials.
I wanted to begin (another) weight loss programme in the new year but I also wanted something that would change my life and not change something for a short period.
I went to see Joan in January and I knew from that first meeting that this was something that would change my life by changing the way I thought about food.
From the first consultation (literally) I have thought about food as something I need to live, rather than living for my next meal.
Since the band has been fitted I have been eating (considerably) smaller portions, stopped thinking about food and my next meal and as a result stopped snacking, broken long-standing habits and found myself with so much more energy.
I’m walking on average 6 miles each week without even thinking about it.
So far I’ve lost over 1 stone and am confident that I will reach my target by next Christmas.
The difference this time is that I am not dieting. I am eating the same meals as the family but small amounts and I’m not rushing when I eat.
All these changes are definitely for life and I am recommending this to anyone who will listen to me!
Lots of love
Just want to let you know that I took my Grandchild to school! I felt a little nervous at first but on the way back I felt like I was on a high!
My legs felt stronger (like they weren’t mine) Ha Ha!
I just wanted to say “thanx for helping me…. And soon I hope to get some more Confidence off you too”!
Hypnosis for Weight Loss – Hypno-Band
I went to see Joan 5 weeks ago from the moment I met her a was instantly put at ease, its hard being a pensioner and doing some thing like this, but I had no need to worry it was great.
Joan is such a lovely person,she told me that her husband Paul had done the hypno band on her a few years ago, it proved successful and she knew what she was talking about, I have now lost 12lbs and doing good, If I need to speak to Joan she is there for me,so if you are thinking of the hypno band get in touch with Joan I promise you will not regret it.
A big thank you once again Joan xx
“I was suffering with social anxiety and lack of confidence.
It was at the point where I didn’t want to be social and I just wanted to fade into the background.
This was no way to live my life and was causing me some real upset. I didn’t know what to do and so hunted the internet for any help.
I was new to the ideas of hypnotherapy but wanted to try anything to help . I wanted to be happy.
I emailed Joan initially and on her response I couldn’t have asked for more .
Such understanding and hope from the off.
I then had a consultation where Joan made me realise my issues could be resolved .
The environment was always safe, relaxing and a place where Joan never once judged or made me feel uncomfortable.
All her techniques worked and it was like a revelation!
I now feel 100% happy with me.
She has taught me to understand why these things happened and how to deal effectively.
I look at things in a more positive way and I now do so much more socially than ever.
I cannot thank Joan enough for her help and getting my life back, and would recommend this therapy to anyone”.
From Anita – Speech and Language Therapy Assistant – Hypnosis for Children
Hi Joan, hope you’re well, I just thought you’d be interested to know that J has made a great start back to School.
I feel your session definitely helped her to feel more positive & helped her to feel more in control of herself, fingers crossed it will continue, it was lovely meeting you, hope we can meet again sometime, many thanks xxx
I had suffered from ’emetophobia’ and anxiety since I can remember (I’m 26 now) and at the start of 2014 I decided to do something about it.
After looking online for help I came across the Thrive Programme and did some research into it (I was sceptical after going through counselling, CBT and Hypnotherapy and not really improving) and I found Paul’s site.
After reading through it about 10 times I decided to give him a call and arranged my initial consultation.
I can honestly say Paul is one of the nicest people I have met and he made me feel relaxed and calm straight away.
During our consultation we talked about the programme and what it involved and I knew there and then that it was something I wanted to do.
I have currently had 5 sessions with Paul and my life has completely changed, I am more confident, relaxed and happy. I have overcome many of the ‘issues’ I had when I started the programme and well on my way to beating others.
This programme is challenging but in a good way as you learn about who you are as a person and that we all have the power in us to change and thrive gives you the skills and confidence to ….. Thrive.
I would advise anybody who suffers with emetophobia, anxiety or any other issue that is stopping you living your life to do this programme.
Wow What a journey.
A year ago I started to have panic attacks. I even called out an Ambulance on the M6 as I thought I was having a Heart Attack.
I then had a Panic Disorder, High social anxiety, Scared of going out in Public, Scared of People, Going out in general, had suicidal thoughts constantly.
The fear of dying.
Was in a dark place for a while.
Doctor threw Anti-depressants at me which did not help, I tried Meditation (Visualization, Relaxation & Spiritualization), exercise,
Stopping drinking, no caffeine, camomile tea but nothing was helping.
The Anxiety / Panic always took over my body.
The best news, I met Paul, had the free 1 hour consultation, we had a good chat, he put me on the Thrive Programme.
I followed the course and went to my sessions weekly with Paul which helped me understand the Thrive and my answers to the exercises’.
After 5 -6 weeks I made a quick turnaround.
Boosting my Self Esteem and now have Low social anxiety and Truly in control of my life.
I am better than normal.
I have done everything that I deemed impossible.
Just to prove it I went to shops I feared, went for meals with strangers, even caught a flight last week.
I am a new improved person.
I love myself and my life.
Thanks Paul I cannot put it into words on how Grateful I am, and my Wife and Kids now happier as they have a better person in their life
Miss “C” – Severe Hair Pulling, Anxiety & Stress (9 year old girl) solved with Hypnosis for Children
My daughter met Joan about 2 years ago during an extremely difficult time in her life.
Her struggles ranged from a nasty case of bullying to the death of a beloved pet, a medical diagnosis and my husband and I deciding to split temporarily.
For a girl of such a young age she did not know how to cope with life at this point and as a result she began to pull her hair.
She went from a full head of gorgeous wavy hair to total hair loss within 5 months. It was extremely traumatic for her as you can imagine.
I didn’t know where to turn.
The professionals I saw had never experienced anything like this and were no help at all. In fact I was told that as her Mum I will have probably read more on the subject and could probably tell the doctors more than they can tell me!!
So I decided to try hypnotherapy for her.
Chloe had an instant affection for Joan.
Joan had a beautiful, soft and wonderfully caring manner which comes naturally to her, but in the presence of children this side of her really shines through and my daughter loved her instantly.
The session with Joan made my daughter feel on top of the world.
The techniques used helped my daughter to feel safe, relaxed, loved and important. It made a massive difference to her life.
Joan sent us a CD made especially for my daughter which she would listen to every single night without fail as she lay in bed. S
he found comfort in having Joan’s voice there to see her off to sleep each night.
Over the next few months the hair pulling went from extremely intense to what we thought of as a habit she had formed.
Chloe had another one or two sessions with Joan and within a year her hair had begun to grow back.
Today Chloe has a full head of gorgeous curly hair and she does not pull her hair at all these days. I would recommend a visit to Joan for any child who needs a boost in confidence, who needs comfort, support and unconditional love for what ever reason.
The treatment gives the child a chance to relax, a means to let go of all the bad feelings and experiences and a source of comfort and love that sometimes parents cant provide due to the fact that they are hurting too!
Roz – Anxiety & Stress with Clinical Hypnosis
I would just like to say a heartfelt thank you to Joan who recently helped me to get through a really difficult time.
I was feeling extremely depressed and anxious about circumstances that were overwhelming me to a point of exhaustion.
Through hypnotherapy and her personal warmth and understanding I have come through the other side and have now found the courage to make major positive changes in my life.
I now feel I have an exciting new future, which seems unbelievable considering where I was just a few weeks ago.
Thank you really isn’t enough Joan
Lots of love
