Jayne, For help with severe anxiety

I started visiting Margaret for hypnotherapy after months of suffering from extreme anxiety. I'd tried everything and this was my last resort. Being honest, I was very sceptical, but I was willing to give anything a go as I had no quality of life. Unbelievably after just 4 sessions I had none of my horrendous anxious symptoms, no panic attacks, my sleeping pattern had returned to almost normal. With Margaret's hypnotherapy sessions, I'm delighted to say, I finally have my life back, I can't recommend it highly enough! I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, Margaret makes you feel completely at ease. I'm now looking to go back for a bit of help with my weight loss!

Les Geoghegan, for quitting smoking

It will be 3 weeks tomorrow and the urge still hasn’t come back. The savings, as you can imagine, are mounting up fast - around £21 a day from smoking up to 60 a day to absolutely none after the session with you is really incredible.

As you know I am approaching 65 and have smoked for most of my life. I gave up on a couple of occasions; once for about 7 years in the 90’s, but I found it impossible to stop this time, due to my personnel circumstance - even after going to my doctor's Stop Smoking Clinic, trying patches, gum, etc., and latterly trying electric cigarettes.

Hypnotherapy was my last hope and I found it fairly easy, after only speaking to Margaret on the phone, to reduce my daily total. I smoked my last cigarette at 7.30am on the day of my appointment.
I walk my dogs for an hour every day in the sand hills and can now climb to the steepest one which I wouldn't have even tried three weeks ago. I've also suffered with Catarrh for months, probably years off and on, but now it's totally gone.

I have no idea how you have done it and do realise that I had to want to give up, which I did.

In the twenty-one days since he gave up smoking, Les has saved £441.00 and this saving is mounting up at a rate of £21 every day

Ten weeks later
I have now had another e mail from Les, he is still a very happy non-smoker.

From K S in Southport

"Wish I had found you 35 years ago, I'd be around £50 000 richer!'
Much easier than with will power! Without the withdrawal symptoms!
I was talked into trying hypnotism to give up smoking and didn't really want to give up, now I have no desire to smoke and hate the smell of cigarettes!
Incredible after just ONE session. Thanks Margaret."

From LMS in Southport

"Since February 2008, I have not had a cigarette! Hard to believe!
Gave up for three years after pregnancy, then started again. Gave up for 18 months and tried patches but started again, after hypnotism I don't WANT to start!
When someone who has been smoking stands near, the smell is horrible! I think 'did I really smell like that?' Hypnotism has taken away the desire to smoke completely."

From M S in Southport

"It is now over a year since I came to see you about the chocolate addiction I had. Well I am pleased to tell you that I have not had any chocolate since I saw you and I don't miss it at all!"

From P K in Burscough

"Just wanted to thank you for getting me through my driving test. Still can't believe I passed. Hypnosis had such a wonderful calming effect on me. Thank you so much"

From L B in Ormskirk

"I had a fabulous holiday all thanks to you. I have now lost my fear of flying completely, my family couldn't believe how calm I was!"
