Through our sessions and the supporting recordings, I have also managed to give up some rather destructive and nasty habits (including a two year addiction to a nicorette inhilator) and now am able to relax far more easily and, crucially, am sleeping better than I have ever done before. Christine’s caring manner and lovely, warm voice have become a very important part of my support network.”
I started by getting photos from the internet of how I wanted my new home to look on the outside and inside. I then bought a nice book especially for the purpose and starting pasting in the photos, writing in what I wanted to do in each place (be happy with friends, sleep well); and how I wanted to feel (safe and secure; creative)
On one page I had a photo of the hearth – the heart of my home – and wrote exactly what the house would mean to me: “warm and inviting, safe, calm & peaceful, rest, joy, friendship & love, light. A Haven.
I found my new home within 3 weeks and within 3 months I had moved in. There were lots of things that confirmed to me I had found the right place but the most moving and re-assuring thing was when after a few days of moving in I was clearing up in the garden. I found a couple of slabs holding the back gate closed and was about to throw them away when I realised there was engraving on the other side. They turned out to be a broken name plate for the house “The Haven”!!
I think that the Hypnotherapy and vision board really helped my whole being – conscious and unconscious – to engage with what I wanted and needed so that I could find my heart’s desire.”
Thank you so much. It was a wonderful trip, made all the better by literally having no fear, whatsoever of any of the heights we scaled, either mountainous, bridge or trail. Plus, I thoroughly enjoyed our sessions, and hope I can work with you again.”
What was the most interesting aspect of my session was the fact that I had already found a “solution” to my feelings before knocking on Christine’s door. “Taking on too much responsibility”.
Well yes! however this was just the surface and through the calm interactive talk, the gentle hypnotic reminding me of key thoughts from the issues arising from my thoughts, the guidance involved in the repetition of these thoughts I gained valuable insight into the nature of the problem underlying my severe anxiety.
I had taken on work and responsibilities that had taken me away from my true self and was involved in things that I did not enjoy and were not self-empowering. I had not valued as positive key developmental aspects from my past.
Christine said to me ‘look for the bright spots’ as I left my second session and “you can always come back at anytime”. She bookended my sessions with these two great phrases.
When I next attended a meeting that I had been dreading I found that I was able to re-align myself, enjoy the ‘bright spots’. I am now in a calmer place, making decisions about what is best for me, not giving into pressure and this has led to some surprising action involving researching into “drama and dance classes” and story telling. I also now know that there is the support that we all need at various times in our lives available to me which is person centred and liberating. Thanks Christine from my lowered blood pressure and me!”
You were a massive help and support to me – I never imagined that the day could have been such fun and without your help I know I wouldn’t have enjoyed it so much. Joe said to me afterwards, ‘well, she worked wonders considering before every time you heard the music you were going to walk down the isle to, you started crying! And you did – so thank you!”
The process takes a bit of work, it’s not an instant cure. The best thing is now I feel I have a safety net when the pressure builds up and am much happier as a result.”
Christine has given me strategies to enable me to manage the emotions, she has shown empathy, compassion and been very honest when working with me. She taught me about the importance of nurturing my inner child, positive thoughts and positive energy necessary to empower myself alongside supporting me to ultimately to make the right decisions in order to achieve what I want in my life.
As a result I now feel far more positive and optimistic about my future. I have a clear direction and I feel like the missing piece is now in its rightful place, enabling me to feel complete again. I now understand the importance of acknowledging my inner child’s needs which ultimately assists me in my journey of loving myself as a adult.”
Whenever I make the time to listen to my personal recordings I feel hugely more positive and energised to start living my life differently, and I have definitely noticed a subconscious shift to healthier food options and being more nurturing to myself.
I would recommend Christine to anyone wanting to try a different approach and not another diet. She makes you feel very comfortable during the sessions and it’s clear she’s a kind and caring health professional.”
I did not know what to expect from the sessions with Christine, but was immensely relieved at the outset to find a highly professional but caring person who was able to make an immediate impact on my very distressing symptoms of anxiety. Over the course of several sessions, I learnt how to breathe, meditate and calm my system so that I could deal confidently with the everyday and begin to lead the more spontaneous life I had been longing for. I was able to use public transport comfortably again and, after one dedicated session, shed my terrible fear of flying. In each session, I felt that Christine swiftly got to the root cause of my anxiety and offered me long term solutions to my problems.
Over the last few years, I have thus been able to confront and enjoy all manner of what would have previously been terrifying situations. I have completed my PhD and feel as if I have got my life back again.”
My wife suggested that I contact Christine because of a personal recommendation. I very grudgingly gave her a call. Hypnosis was not something I would generally have considered. The rest is history. Going to Christine gave me the confidence and the strategies that I needed. My daughter’s wedding was one of the best days of my life.”
