Since my late teens, I had developed a debilitating fear of flying which had resulted in diazepam being prescribed by my GP. Medicating myself for business travel had been very problematic so I had a chat with Sam and the decision was made to tackle this distressing and highly inconvenient fear through hypnotherapy.
From the outset, I found Sam superb to deal with - she is not only very professional but is absolutely lovely with it. Sam is very supportive and provides powerful clarity on cause and effect thereby allowing you to take back control.
It is hard to describe (succinctly) the powerful effect of my sessions with Sam. The results were transformational and not only obliterated the trauma that I had always felt when flying but also removed the harrowing build up to flights which often started days and weeks before. I would never want to or need to consider medication as an option again.
I have since flown to New Zealand and back for a belated honeymoon. This was the holiday of a lifetime for me (and my husband) and not only was I able to actually look forward to my honeymoon (instead of spending months terrorised by the idea of the flights), I actually thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience of the journey itself.
I am starting a new job soon which will necessitate more air travel as well as going offshore by helicopter for the first time and these facts are not bothering me in the least :)
I have been pleasantly astounded by how effective the hypnotherapy has been and I also very much appreciated Sam's morale support - she knew the mental trauma that I had been previously suffering and was so happy for me when I was buzzing to share the news of my post-treatment flight experiences.
Sam - I'm still in awe at the turnaround and life is so much more pleasant as a result. Thank you once again!

Sam helped me to understand the way the brain works and how to use it to get the results that seemed out of reach. I still listen to the CD most nights in bed and wake refreshed each morning. My weight loss to date is 10 lbs and I am glad to confirm that since ending my sessions I haven't put any weight back on and all that without even trying!

'Sam made me feel very comfortable about discussing the thoughts which were preventing me from being happy. She allowed me to see that I am in charge of my thoughts and able to make positive changes which would make my life more balanced. She taught me techniques which made me feel more able to take charge when negative thoughts try to take over and to make changes which improve my confidence and happiness.
The sessions with Sam were great and I left them feeling relaxed and positive about the future. There have been big changes in my life recently and I feel more able to be calm and in control and enjoy life than I did before I met Sam.

Sam was instrumental in helping me overcome an inability to relax and frequent feelings of heightened anxiety. I sought help because I feared this would hinder a distance-learning Masters degree I was undertaking, which necessitated sitting exams and the submission of a 20,000 dissertation. Both of these were unthinkable prior to the beginning of my sessions (as I’d previously confided to a doctor).
I’m sceptical by nature and do not relish talking about myself with a stranger in any capacity. From the very first session, the tone was friendly and welcoming; and by patiently introducing me to solution-focussed therapy and demonstrating the ease with which we can challenge negative thoughts, Sam showed me the benefits of hanging out in the left side of the brain.
The upshot being, the days leading up to my exam and thesis submission date were amongst the calmest I felt throughout the three-year course. Of course I was aware of the pressure/significance of the occasion(s) but I never felt overwhelmed and actually kind of welcomed them. Anyway, I found out last week I received a ‘Pass with Distinction’, and it’s no exaggeration to say Sam played a significant part in that success.
So many thanks.

I'VE LOST 18LBS SO FAR!! THANK YOU. X
Since the 1st visit I had with you, something clicked in my head. I've found it easy enough to not reach out for biscuits or bread or chocolate. Chocolate doesn't taste the same either. I never thought I'd manage without fruit buns, or chocolate. After 3 sessions with you I've found it easy to watch how much I eat. Listening to the cd every night in my bed really helps and I would highly recommend to anyone that's tried every diet going to try hypnotherapy with you.
