'John' is a senior executive with a stressful London job. With a long daily commute, he found it difficult to relax and this was adding to his stress levels . After just a few sessions he noticed considerable reduction in his every day stress and is finding life easier to cope with - "I recently had some hypnotherapy and to be frank I was a bit sceptical as to whether it would work. I have a stressful job and needed to find a way to control my stress levels before they went off the scale. I contacted Gracious Mountain Therapies and Loraine was very understanding and felt she could help me recognise and manage my stress on a day to day basis. I have had 3 sessions of hypnotherapy so far and have found a great change in the way that I manage stressful situations before they get out of hand. Hypnotherapy is not for everyone but I would certainly recommend that you try, it certainly helped me." John, Norfolk
'Sally' is a mum who is retraining to return to work after a long break. She was finding it a challenge to juggle study with her family commitments and needed to take a step back to re-adjust to her new life - "I was apprehensive about trying hypnotherapy because I find it hard to relax and switch off the thoughts running through my mind. Loraine overcame this easily with her lovely soothing voice, and when I came out of hypnosis I was surprised that forty minutes had passed! The hypnotherapy has helped me greatly to cope with stress in my life, and I would recommend Loraine to anyone who is wondering whether hypnotherapy can help them." Sally, Norfolk
Confidence and Self Esteem
'Jane' had suffered from bullying as a child and had not realised how this had affected her life and the choices she had made for many years. Hypnotherapy has helped her release the past and given her new confidence and a feeling of assertiveness in her life. "After receiving Hypnotherapy and being unsure of what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised at the whole experience . I felt relaxed, comfortable and at ease with Loraine and felt in control throughout the sessions . I noticed subtle ongoing changes with my confidence and self esteem in various situations and generally felt uplifted." Jane, Norfolk
I worked with 'Simon' via Skype using BWRT® , he explains his own issue - "I am a performer who has always experienced nerves leading up to a performance. Although I could still perform once I got on stage, I always wondered if it was at all possible to be free from the unnecessary anxiety I'd experience leading up to each performance. It was as if my mind felt prepared, but my body still reacted in fear.
After working with Loraine it was strange to look for the anxiety where I use to feel it and not be able to find it. I kept thinking that at some point, I was bound to experience the nerves I had encountered time and time again like I did in the past; but instead. I felt clear.
I even noticed an overall difference in the quality of my performance when I appeared on stage recently, just days after our session on Skype.
It was nice to finally be able to enjoy myself before I got on stage and not feel overwhelmed beforehand.
Now I can relax and know that I no longer have to endure those old feelings.
Performing can be fun both on stage and before I get on stage." 'Simon', Canada
Imogen had tried to 'give up' smoking on various occasions over the years without success. _ "Still early days, but finding stopping smoking significantly easier than any previous attempts. My attitude is much more about positive gains and benefits than perceived loss which I attribute to the hypnotherapy - so thank you very much". Imogen, Norfolk
