Erin’s story: Hypnotherapy for Confidence & Acceptance

Issue: Confidence & Acceptance
Helped using: Solution Focused Hypnotherapy in Stroud (Nailsworth)
Hypnotherapist: Liane Ulbricht-Kazan

Why did you come to Changes Welcome Hypnotherapy?

I wanted to work through some issues I was having at school sort of just with myself. I was feeling quite frustrated with myself with a lot of things. And coming here I wasn’t really sure what I wanted, I just wasn’t going through a very good patch at school, and in general. So I was looking for help somewhere.


What were your First Impression of the Service?

The benefits were that I felt really more confident in myself. And if I felt strong emotions or got frustrated, I’d be able to accept it much better than I did before. And that just really helped me work through anything that came up in my life. It would help me just work through it as I went along. Short term benefits I probably notice more it kind of– I actually found myself giving people advice at school because it was helping me so much at the time and a lot of people were going through different things. Because you know when you’re a teenager it’s all difficult with almost everything. And so the short term benefits were that I just felt so much better than I have done. And because it was always fresh in my mind, I’d always– if I came across an emotion I’d just be able to accept it and understand what was happening and let it go.


What other benefits have you felt from your Hypnotherapy Sessions?

Looking back on it I realized that I’ve been able to look at more difficult situations from a more detached point of view. And because of that it kind of takes you out of the stressfulness of the situation and you actually look at it as a whole. And that is really helpful for any difficult situation. And that’s really helped me and I still retain that sort of information. So it’s a really useful thing to have.


What would you say about Liane? What’s she like as a Hypnotherapist?

She’s really friendly and she’s really relaxed, so you’re never feeling awkward when you’re sitting and talking about difficult things. And she just– we had a laugh together in our sessions– it was that easy to talk to her. And so she’s a really helpful person and her voice is really soothing as well when she’s doing the hypnotherapy. So that in itself was a great benefit.


Would you say Changes Welcome Hypnotherapy offers value for money?

It’s definitely worth it. It’s worth every penny. And it’s so helpful in the long term and short term, so I would recommend it to anyone.


What would your advice be to anyone Thinking of Booking Hypnotherapy with Changes Welcome?

It’s so good. It’s really relaxing. She gives you a CD at the beginning, and it really helped me. She told me to listen to it everyday, and I still listen to it now. And it’s– everything she tells me is really really helpful. And she also talks about parts of the brain so you learn what’s happening at the same time as dealing with it which is something that’s so helpful.
