Client Success Stories
“There is simply no-one who compares to her.”
“I found Lisa through a friend’s chance meeting with her. I was in a very bad way. I had just been diagnosed with cancer, was suffering from IBS and anxiety attacks. I desperately needed help but hadn’t been able to find anyone with the right qualifications. I met with Lisa and from the very first session, I knew without a shadow of a doubt that she was the right therapist. I found her to be warm, genuine, naturally intuitive, non-judgemental and easy to open to. Every session truly has been powerful, deep and healing. She helped me through the gruelling cancer treatment – I am now well. I am continuing to work with Lisa even though I live 2 hours drive away; there is simply no-one who compares to her. She has developed sessions with Skype and Facetime, which I wasn’t sure would be as good as face to face but was pleasantly surprised to find it worked just as well. Anxiety attacks have gone and I have now found a path to my own wellbeing. I have come such a long way since that first session with Lisa. I’m so grateful to her.”
Imogen, 53 – Nurse
“I have never experienced so much generous help in a professional person as I have with you.”
“Support like that is from the heart and makes a massive impression when you are involved in very personal stuff. The sense of freedom growing in myself is unbelievable. I feel more alive and confident. You have well and truly exceeded my expectations.”
“Knowing Lisa believed in me taught me how to believe in myself”.
“I was struggling with alcohol. Drinking too much too often and at inappropriate times. I was feeling low, afraid and not feeling very good about myself at all. Lisa’s reply to my initial email enquiry was so kind and it gave me hope. I now feel in control of myself and my life and I feel a sense of peace. I feel so much healthier and am quite proud of myself. I felt I could show my soul to Lisa as I had total trust in her. Knowing Lisa believed in me taught me how to believe in myself. It’s funny how you can feel in such a dark place with no idea how to make life a happier one after trying so many times to change and constantly failing. Then one day a decision to seek professional help and here I am just 8 weeks on feeling like a huge black cloud has finally and truthfully gone.”
Claire, 50 – Receptionist
“There are no words to express my gratitude for your help.”
“Thank you so, so much for your care and expertise. Eva is reassured that she can contact you by Skype and messaging, and, in turn, I am reassured too. There are no words to express my gratitude for your help. When I think back to the darkest times at the end of last February, I could not have believed that Eva would have been able to make such dramatic progress in just six months.”
Mum to Eva
“Most helpful was learning how to communicate in a better way to avoid an argument with anyone.”
“I was struggling to cope with constant verbal and emotional abuse from my grandson after his mother and grandfather died. I was feeling very lost and alone and not knowing how to help him or myself. I felt very comfortable with you and it was a relief to finally tell my problems to someone who really understood me. My grandson is now thinking and behaving in a much calmer way. I looked forward to the sessions and I learned to put across my feelings in a calm and clear way and after each session, I felt armed with ways to deal with things. Most helpful was learning how to communicate in a better way to avoid an argument with anyone. I thought I was a lost cause and unable to find my way back. I’ve had help not just with my grandson but with other issues too. I now feel so much better and am looking forward to the next chapter of my life. I wouldn’t have thought this was possible a few months ago. Keep doing what you’re doing Lisa, it works!”
Sheila, 59 – In connection with her grandson
“I personally think you’ve been the best therapist I’ve ever had.”
EVA, 22 STUDENT
“I left Uni following an emotional breakdown. I was spiralling into depression, feeling weak and helpless with high anxiety due to my troubled childhood and ongoing relationship issues. I had had therapy before but it did not help enough so initially, I was reluctant to consider help to try to experience life with a positive outlook. Your particular process of therapy showed immediate positive results. Things now have greatly improved. My depression has lifted and I feel a whole lot more capable and happier on a day to day basis.
I’m out of a negative place physically and mentally. I’ve been able to do more things and have more fun. I’m more social, more active and better able to take responsibility for myself. You offer things that my previous therapists didn’t provide, like online chats and, the ability to adapt yourself to the person you’re treating.
I personally think you’ve been the best therapist I’ve ever had due to your techniques and your flexibility. I would definitely recommend you. I’ve spoken of your methods and your attitude to people who are struggling, that it’s a really positive approach rather than just talking about problems and not a lot else gets done. But with you, the approach is far more positive and proactive.”
“I feel so much more confident and positive and able to do anything I want to do.”
“I was suffering anxiety in everyday situations, feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope in general. I was comparing self to others, self-conscious and holding self back in performance. I feel so much more confident and positive and able to do anything I want to do. I’m worrying much less about what other people think of me. I’m not feeling as tense about things like giving presentations at school, asking questions, even visits to the Dr. and Dentist which means I can get on with my life in a calmer and more positive and relaxed way. The sessions have helped so much and had a massive impact on how I feel. The CDs were really helpful. In between sessions I really felt I had support for me. The relaxing hypnotic process helped me to be calmer. My parents are really pleased.”
Becky, 15 – Student
“We are very pleased with the progress Becky has made and have certainly noticed a difference in her general demeanour. She has always worried about what other children thought of her and has commented how she feels much more confident in her lessons now. Many thanks for your help once again.”
Mum to Becky, 15
“Yours sessions have worked wonders.”
“I was struggling with a lack of confidence at work on conference calls and, a general lack of positivity. I was very resentful, bitter and sad about losing my unborn child. I am much more confident on calls at work now with minimal feelings of anxiety and am feeling more positive in general. The sessions were very helpful. I don’t believe I could have gained the confidence that has been achieved without the sessions. I first came to see you very soon after the loss of my baby and was really struggling with the reality of it all. I’d like to thank you for helping me through this extremely hard and trying time. The sessions were a great comfort and a massive help. Thank you so much. With regards to work issues, your sessions have worked wonders together with the CDs, to which I am also extremely grateful.”
Judy, 42 – Investment Banker
“The sessions were very effective and you provide very focused help.”
“I came to see you on recommendation through a friend of a friend. I was not sleeping and in need of help. Things are very much better now. The sessions were very effective and you provide very focused help. You showed a very sensitive understanding of my issues and of me as a person. There are no negatives in the service you provide! I have very much valued the sessions over these past weeks and what a positive difference they have made to my general self-awareness and to understanding my own special needs for smooth running and spiritual wellbeing. So thank you again Lisa”

“I can’t thank you enough for what you did to help.”
MUM TO MONICA
“Monica is like a different girl to when she first came to see you. It is so wonderful for us to have our beautifully cheerful and optimistic daughter back. She is embracing Uni life to the full and really moving on with life. I can’t thank you enough for what you did to help.”
“I was feeling overwhelmed.”
“I had been feeling really overwhelmed and anxious in my Uni studies and having difficulties in some relationships. I am doing so much better now compared to last year. I have really settled into my new course and am feeling really confident about my future at Uni. Thank you so much for all the help and support you gave to me and to my mum.”
I would recommend both the sessions and online course to anyone needing help.”
I cannot thank Lisa enough for all of her help. Her online course and one to one sessions have improved my quality of life drastically. She is very easy to chat to and trust and I would recommend both the sessions and online course to anyone needing help.
“Lisa helped me to understand my illness and to see the positive in it.”
Lisa is an inspiration, she works from a true place of compassion and understanding. Lisa has helped me through a very difficult time. My life as a busy working mum was spinning out of control and eventually I became very ill. Lisa helped me to understand my illness and to see the positive in it and how it could serve me to discover what was important to me again.
“I feel able to move forward with a positive attitude and put anxiety behind me in the past.”
Lisa is a highly experienced and skilled professional who has the ability to put you at ease and be empathetic. She listens carefully and gets to the heart of the problem quickly. Now, thanks to Lisa I feel able to move forward with a positive attitude and put anxiety behind me in the past.
“I have realised some things about myself that perhaps I had not wanted to face up to before.”
“Lisa stuck with me and provided a safe and confidential space to untangle my negative thoughts and provide me with many strategies, which I now have at my disposal. I have definitely grown and realized some things about myself that perhaps I had not wanted to face up to before.
“I have managed to move back from a state of permanent crisis management.”
ANDREA, 42 – MUM OF 3 AGED 14, 11 and 9
“I feel I am better able to communicate with my children because I have managed to move back from a state of permanent crisis management to letting things sit for a while before having to act, as feeling that things are less catastrophic. I am better able to get them to communicate by giving them the space to communicate rather than trying to ‘force’ them to.
I understand better how to read their cues – what they really mean rather than just taking their reactions as what they mean. I am better at setting boundaries earlier so that we reach crisis point less frequently.
Each of the children started with well developed stress mechanisms because of the early challenges and so we have been able to dismantle the most obstructive of these, and they are all also much more tolerant of each and their foibles, and communicative with each other of how they feel… most of the time.”
“You have helped me so much, above and beyond what anyone could expect.”
I’d like to thank you for supporting me with my self-esteem issues and anxiety. I can honestly say that having been to many therapists during my life, I never truly got to understand myself as I do now, having worked with you. You have helped me so much, above and beyond what anyone could expect, and there are times I do not know what I would have done without you.
“I feel a lot more relaxed and happy about things and within myself.”
I was struggling with confidence in myself, and being over anxious about things. Lisa’s support has helped me to make a connection between my thoughts and feelings of anxiety. She is a very caring and supportive person who makes you feel at ease. I learnt to identify and counter any negative or anxious thoughts. I have noticed that this has definitely improved my moods and made me feel a lot more positive about my future. Lisa has really understood me as a person and I feel a lot more relaxed and happy about things and within myself. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone who is struggling or going through something similar.
“Lisa’s relaxed approach and unique combination of therapy techniques has suited me perfectly and I can’t thank her enough.”
When I first came to Lisa for help I was defined by labels I’d given myself over the years and felt truly stuck, feeling lost and inadequate. Lisa has helped me break down the barriers in my head to show me who I can be and allow me to appreciate the positivity in my life. My family, friends and colleagues have all noticed a difference, and perhaps most importantly to me, I now feel more confident and settled in a long-term relationship. Lisa’s relaxed approach and unique combination of therapy techniques have suited me perfectly and I can’t thank her enough for guiding me towards the person I now know I can be.
“It has definitely been a good investment for me.”
When I contacted Lisa, I would blow up at the first provocation. I started to feel different from the beginning, and calmer all the time. I’m so relieved that I don’t shout and shriek anymore. I’m so much calmer now and I can see things more clearly. I had really bad nights with hours of laying awake, feeling exhausted. My sleep now is generally a lot better and I always go off to sleep straight away. It has definitely been a good investment for me.
“I strongly recommend Lisa to anyone that needs any form of re-direction or help with finding what is a drag in their lives.”
I was advised by a close family friend to use Lisa’s services after a very positive experience a few years’ back. The cost of these services reflects the quality. Lisa has a wonderful skill in making people relax and open up. She has a warming presence by telephone, Skype and face to face. It took a matter of three sessions for me to realize what it was that controlled my lack of happiness and Lisa has helped me to be pro-active with some great strategies to deal with this. I strongly recommend her to anyone that needs any form of re-direction or help with finding what is a drag in their lives.
“My life has completely changed; I have so much more confidence and belief in myself.”
“I met Lisa after a recommendation when I was in a very bad place with my mental health. My confidence and self-esteem was at a major low and I felt constantly tired and overemotional. It was having a very negative effect on my relationship and I was starting to feel like my boyfriend would be better off without me.
Apart from my car, the 6-month therapy programme Lisa offered was the most expensive investment I’d ever made. At first I found that thought very overwhelming! But after years of battling depression and having recently increased my dose of anti-depressants following the loss of my granny, I realised that to make a real, long-lasting change to my life I needed to invest in myself and my future. And it was so worth it!
Lisa gave me such a personalised service and took so much time to address every issue I was facing. I loved the range of techniques she uses, and I really think the hypnosis element helps cement everything I learnt. I highly recommend the online course, which I used alongside my one-to-one therapy sessions. I found this easy to use, and the videos and downloadable content were very helpful to practice what we’d covered in our sessions, particularly around changing my negative thinking patterns.
I feel like an entirely different person compared to when I met Lisa all those months ago. My life has completely changed; I have so much more confidence and belief in myself, my body image in a hundred times better, and I’m a million times happier. It’s not just me that’s noticed either; my family and friends have commented, and most importantly, my relationship is stronger than ever.”
“We can talk about our feelings and things, in general, a lot more easily.”
Lisa is very honest in her approach, and very truthful and helpful. My son was getting anxious when competing in sport, and he was anxious about a lot of things in life generally. Things are much more positive for us as a family now. We can talk about our feelings and things, in general, a lot more easily and my son can cope better with the stress of competing.
“How you have helped me is definitely value for money.”
When I contacted Lisa, I needed to find a way out of a tricky relationship. There were changes I needed to make and commit to, but I didn’t know how. My situation has changed significantly now because I have grown to accept my self-worth. I’ve learned to have the confidence to be honest in a relationship and to recognize that this is always the best way. Whilst your support is not an inexpensive investment, I really can’t put a price on having the weight lifted off my shoulders! How you have helped me is definitely value for money. The way you’ve dealt with things has seemed really structured and I got something out of every session. I would definitely recommend you.
“I now feel a lot more positive and in control of my life.”
Since seeing Lisa my self-esteem and confidence have undergone a transformation. From the start I felt comfortable with Lisa because she is easy to talk to and to trust, even when talking about difficult subjects. I now feel a lot more positive and in control of my life, and more than anything, have learnt to stop blaming myself for past mistakes. I would definitely recommend her.
“Things are so much better now in every way.”
Lisa was recommended locally by a friend for help with our daughter who was having panic attacks at school and skipping meals. Things are so much better now in every way. Most valuable to us were the parent support sessions with strategies to help us to understand and get to grips with strategies to cope. Lisa has definitely met our expectations. She is professional and is easy to open up to. We have already recommended her.
Mum to Clare, 15
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you are doing to support my entire family!”
I feel an incredible appreciation of you Lisa. You have an amazing calm and strength when you talk to me and an incredible positivity. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you are doing to support me, my daughter and indeed my entire family!
Mum to Philippa, 15
“Everything with my parents is so much better.”
I felt anxious about how my parents viewed me and I was worried I wasn’ making them proud. What you have done for me is amazing. Everything with my parents is so much better and I don’t worry about many things anymore.
“It really made us think about what teenage girls need.”
We found the parent support session very helpful. I think it really made us think about how we are and what teenage girls need, so thank you.
Mum to Matilda, 14

“She now feels confident in her ability to cope.”
MUM TO JACKIE, 13
“Jackie went into her second year of boarding considerably better. She was happier and had more confidence. The sessions helped. They were a starting point from which to build on and go forward. She now feels confident in her ability to cope. Part of the issue was my not letting go, so she’s had help from all sides.”
