Hypnotherapy

“The first time i met Nicola was at a talk she was doing about herself and her journey.
She inspired and exited me instantly. From her story i learnt how genuine and full of courage she was. There and then i decided to have hypnotherapy. I new this lady could help me.

At the first session she gathered information about me, and my life and what my wants were from hypnotherapy. She explained how it worked and how i was still in control at all times during the hypnosis.

The second and following sessions i lay down on the couch, there was very soothing, quiet music in the background. Before long after listening to her soothing voice i found myself relaxed and hypnotised. It was like being asleep but still being aware of your surroundings. We had decided at the outset what i wanted to deal with .
I felt no fear. She was constantly affirming affirmations , some had come from me and some from herself. She was taking notes and getting to know me (inside and out} !!!!! Sounds scary but it wasn’t. She is very competent, confident, and knows her stuff !!!

I am a psychotherapist/ counsellor, with child and adolescent counselling skills and reality therapy skills, so i am in awe and aware of many skills she was using. but her knowledge and skills were inexhaustible, she even brought in some reiki at times to heal both physical and mental difficulties.

In psychotherapy the process of changing negative thoughts which can lead to negative feelings and actions, can take a lot of time and effort, in hypnosis however, it can be changed much more quickly as it is being changed from the inside out, not the outside in. I was walking around one day and a thought popped up in my head, you are loving and lovable, where did that come from I thought, this was an affirmation from one of Nicolas sessions !!!!! This was not the last !

To summarise, this journey that nicola accompanied me on was one of , self worth building, and positive life changing.

I would reccomend her without hesitation”

“I attended several hypnotherapy sessions with Nicola at the beginning of 2016. I immediately found her to be warm, trustworthy and highly professional. Her soft, calm voice and caring manner meant that the sessions were very relaxing and were something that I looked forward to. Nicola really listened to me and took the time to find out what I wanted to achieve from the therapy. She showed great empathy and it was reassuring to feel that she understood the difficulties I was experiencing. Her desire to help me move forward was both genuine and determined. Nicola has gently guided and supported me to come to a greater understanding of myself.

She is extremely knowledgeable and as well as the hypnotherapy, she has given me other tools and information that I know will help me to further improve my health and wellbeing.

I feel lucky that our paths crossed and I would strongly recommend Nicola to anyone in the future”,

“I am honoured to be able to say a few words about my experience with Nicola and four hypnotherapy sessions I had with her at the end of 2015.  I can honestly say it was a marvellous experience. At the end of the first session I felt that at last someone understands me and the difficulty I had, without judgement or criticism but with pure love and consideration.  Nicola has the highest integrity I have known in a person, she is completely trustworthy and wants only the best for me.  Nicola was very helpful fitting me in for the sessions and took time to explain exactly what would happen at each stage.  Her wonderful soft voice was perfect too for relaxing me and I was completely at ease the whole time and we finished with some Reiki which was a wonderful bonus.

I am pleased to say I feel so much better now and able to understand where the difficulties I was encountering were coming from.  I have a way to go, but Nicola has provided me with the tools I need to take things further for myself and things are definitely on the up.

I recommend you try hypno for yourself, it can only do you some good.”

“After attending Nicky’s ‘introduction to hypnotherapy’ talk, I decided I’d like to give it a go. I had no real idea why, or what I wanted to get out of it but something inside me drove me to begin. We’re at the beginning of my journey I think, I’ve already found out things about myself that I had either forgotten or buried. Nicky is a very understanding therapist, she helps me to form my own conclusions and supports me. Hypnotherapy is so gentle a process, if you feel you’d like to gain a better understanding of the choices you make then I would highly recommend.”

“This was the first time I had ever experienced hypnotherapy. Nicola made me feel very comfortable with this new experience.

Nicola was very knowledgeable in her field of expertise. I wanted support and to achieve an improvement in my self confidence. Nicola used techniques to make me feel at ease and be able to talk openly about personal topic’s in a friendly but professional environment. We talked about the goals I wanted to achieve both personally and professionally and I have since been able to complete tasks that previously generated a level of anxiety with confidence. Nicola was always very flexible and accommodating with appointments and demonstrated a passion and energy that was infectious. This experience helped me to tackle personal obstacles and improve my professional skills.”

“I have had a few Hypnotherapy sessions now and could feel the benefit after just one session. I feel so much calmer and positive about my life. I was a little nervous before my first Hypnotherapy session as I wasn’t sure what to expect and how I would feel. However with Nic’s reassurance and support I can honestly say that during the Hypnotherapy I am probably in the most relaxed state I have ever been in. During the Hypnotherapy I am deeply relaxed but fully aware of everything and feel that I am only under the Hypnotherapy for about 10 minutes but in reality it’s much longer than that.

I look forward to my sessions with Nic, before the Hypnotherapy we will discuss first how I am feeling and what changes I have noticed since my last session. Nic will always suggest other tools to help me improve my health and wellbeing and which I have taken on board and now use.

Nic is a genuine and caring person with a high level of empathy and understanding of my feelings. I feel that I am moving on with my life and so much more positive about the future thanks to her help and support.”

Yoga and Yoga Retreats

“I’ve been practicing yoga (badly) for more than 15 years, I always ‘made’ myself go, and generally felt better for doing it. However, Nicky’s class is a different experience altogether, I can’t wait for ‘the’ evening! It’s a gentle, calm class with a greater emphasis on wellbeing, we are encouraged to challenge ourselves but not to push so hard that it becomes uncomfortable. A guided meditation at the end is the perfect conclusion to a very enjoyable class. Giggling occasionally seems to be generally welcomed, which is very refreshing, we’re never under pressure to take ourselves too seriously.”

“Of all the Yoga classes Ive attended, and there have been a fair few, this was the best class I have been to, it was phenomenal”

*SO GOOD*! I can’t recommend this class enough. Nicola gives everyone a little head massage during relaxation, and last night we got to experience her singing bowls (sound healing) which was very special and takes you to an even deeper level of relaxation. Very nice people in the class, too :-)”
