Helped using: Life Coaching & Solution Focused Hypnotherapy in Stroud (Nailsworth)
Why did you come to Hypnotherapy?
Yeah I came because– well one of the reasons– I guess you could call it self-esteem really. I wasn’t very sort of just happy in myself–happy with myself. I wasn’t– you know I saw who I was and who I could be, and I realized I’m nowhere there, you know. “Why not?”
What were the short & long term Benefits of Hypnotherapy?
Definitely after a session I just feel so light and free and happy and just– you know– it’s great. And long term, it’s kind of subtler. It’s subtler and yet I definitely noticed that my “downs” are less.
How did Hypnotherapy Help you progress?
Well, Sam’s always saying, you know, one step forward and sometimes steps back– and that’s okay. And I have noticed that. And the steps forward more than make up for the steps back. Definitely yeah.
As an actress and a performing artist, it’s brilliant for me in my line of work. Yeah, to deal with nerves and stress and challenges that — among all things that come with it– and they’re not bad things at all, as long as you use them in the right way. Hypnotherapy, to help me bring me that focus, that determination and courage and to know that to do a job well I need to be relaxed in myself. And then I can do anything in that right state of mind, yes.
I see such a difference in myself. It’s a very typical thing to say– but actually yeah, I am so much happier, just to put it simply.
How would you describe Sam as a therapist?
He’s lovely– very very genuine, really caring, and yeah really loves what he does– puts his all into it. And well as a hypnotherapist, he’s got a lovely voice.
What would you say to anyone Thinking of Hypnotherapy with Changes Welcome?
I’d be like, “Yes! Do it! It’s amazing.” Yeah, it’s so nice because it I realised the other day that I feel like I’m always going to be okay. You know– I’ve got– yeah it’s like I’m safe, someone’s got my back, I’m going to be– and that’s a– yeah that’s really nice. It’s amazing I’ve always wanted to find something like this where I can come and I can know that I’m just dealing with whatever stresses– because we all have them– and it’s great yeah. And now I’m so grateful, I can’t say it enough really.
