“I had been suffering from stress/anxiety attacks in the form of occasional but severe stomach and back pains for five years before I made contact with Jo. Originally diagnosed as a gall bladder issue, I had undergone surgery initially to remove my gall bladder. However, once the pains returned soon after the surgery, and specifically as soon as I returned to work, it became clear that the issue was related to stress. Various medications did nothing to improve matters. Two six-week courses of counselling followed but had no effect, before I bit the bullet and contacted Jo with a view to trying hypnotherapy. It was the best decision I could have taken.
The difficulties of the previous five years had caused significant changes to my normal life, including changes to my work pattern and not travelling far from home if I was going out alone. Now, having completed a course of hypnotherapy and life-coaching with Jo, I am in the best place I have been mentally for years. The techniques I have been taught by Jo have been put to good use and they work; and my entire mindset is different now from how it was previously. In addition, some long-held difficult memories relating to a personal issue I encountered many years ago have been addressed and overcome. It’s time to move on and leave that all in the past.
I know other people who suffer from stress – most, like mine, related to work – and I have recommended Jo to some of these people. Any doubts I had at the outset about the use of hypnotherapy have been completely eradicated, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Jo to anybody who is suffering stress or anxiety-related difficulties in their life.”
