Testimonials/Quotes from clients

Driving confidence: As someone who had struggled with driving anxiety for many years, I did not start my hypnotherapy with high expectations. I had tried other therapies and also continuously tried to push myself for years and just avoided driving unless I really had to do it. My sessions were done through zoom and were more comfortable than I thought they would be. They have helped me to continuously push out of my comfort zone where I have taken realistic steps to be less restrictive with my driving. I had only driven the same routes to the same places for 5 years and avoided a lot but I am now able to cope and prepare, even at times when I have been anxious beforehand.

Overcame my fear of public speaking: I volunteered to have some hypnotherapy with Melissa as I desperately wanted to overcome my fear of public speaking. I received a total of 6 sessions and I chose face-to-face work as that suited me best. My fear public of speaking meant feeling unable to share my opinion with others, or engage in a discussion in front of 2 or more people. If I knew I had to speak out or read something aloud I would feel the anxiety building, my heart would pound, and my mind would go blank, and this would be especially worse if I was sharing something about myself. When it was my turn I would say as little as possible and sometimes would back out altogether. I was tired of this fear overwhelming me so I made a decision to have hypnotherapy. I felt if I could improve my situation, even just a little bit, it could only be a positive thing. I had progressed in other areas of my life, but this fear was holding me back. I suppose it was more than speaking out, it was finding belief within myself that what I had to say was valid and worth listening to. I had a lot of self-doubt and I didn’t want to feel like that anymore. From that first session, Melissa put my mind at ease, and her calm presence helped me to feel relaxed. Melissa only worked with what I felt comfortable with, she checked things out every step of the way so that I always safe and in control. By the end of the sixth session I had managed to speak up in a classroom setting and did so in a calm and relaxed manner! I felt that Melissa had taken me on a journey, a journey through different settings, as she used positive and encouraging dialogue to work through, and break down my fears, at the same time building up my self-esteem. A year has passed since I had the hypnotherapy and I now speak up regularly in classroom settings, I can think clearly and this makes it easy for me to share my opinion. Thanks so much Melissa for helping me overcome this fear that had affected me for years.

Helped with my stress: I was apprehensive about hypnotherapy at first but found that my session helped me to relax and channel my energy.

Best thing I have ever done: I became a non-smoker with Inner Power Hypnotherapy. The key message here is that I am not an ex-smoker, I am a non-smoker, and Inner Power helped me recognise and understand the difference. I started by completing a questionnaire which helped Melissa understand my triggers and habits. This was followed up with two sessions via Zoom, and it felt like Melissa was in the room. It was my first experience of hypnotherapy and it was the most relaxing experience I have ever had. I have stopped smoking before, but it never lasted and ultimately my cravings would return. This time it feels vastly different – I am a non-smoker, and I feel like I have never smoked. I strongly recommend Inner Power Hypnotherapy, it’s the best thing I ever did. Thank you Melissa.
