About me

An increasing number of top-level sporting clients come to me with performance issues. Some have a subconscious block to their performance, others have a crisis of confidence, some need to deal with life issues impacting on their sport. Using general therapy together with hypnotherapy techniques, these clients are able to transform their performance and continue at, or progress to, the top level of their sport. Other clients come to deal with addictions or weight loss. Feedback: "I have lost two-stone-six pounds, and my daughter lost 4 stone 2lb. We are both delighted as neither of us has lost that amount in the time going to various slimming clubs over the years. Thank you so much." - Marylyn. "Maggie, I have now lost 16lb. It's fabulous. It's just so easy." - Karen. "Hi Maggie, I've been so great since seeing you and changed my eating habits completely...I've lost a pound a day." - Julie. Most clients use normal hypnotherapy techniques, others opt for gastric band hypnosis. A client with fibromyalgia reduced her pain levels from seven (out of ten) to one-and-a-half, and maintained that level for six months. A client with a flying phobia boarded a plane after one hypnotherapy session and was so relaxed she fell asleep before take-off and was untroubled by turbulence. A lady, who believed she was incapable of sleepwithout medication, dozed off on the eve of treatment and slept soundly until morning. Another client, fearful of public speaking, found her presentation skills so transformed - "Maggie, it was a party!" - she is now in huge demand as a speaker.
Because hypnotherapy works with the subconscious mind, it often gets to the heart of an issue more effectively than other therapies. This is because the subconscious mind is the part dealing with emotions, feelings, memories and intutions. Our cognitive thought processes often get the better of our emotions, offering logical reasons for behaving in a certain way. We offer explanations based on rational thought - but our feelings often tell a different story. When everything bubbles over, or our skills and performance suffer, we look for help. If you feel troubled and think analytical work could help you, get in touch, with no obligation. Your needs may be very specific: exam nerves; blushing; an eating disorder;alcohol intake. Hypnotherapy is a powerful therapeutic tool which puts you, the client, in charge and focuses your subconscious mind to make the changes you need. You can master your public speaking nerves; improve your self confidence; stop smoking.  All things are possible with an optimistic and positive mindset.
