A few testimonials

"My sessions with you have been invaluable and I really can’t thank you enough.  I’ve struggled with anxiety for as long as I can remember with various visits to the doctor, counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy but to no avail.  Things got really bad for me shortly before I was introduced to you and I was prescribed anti-depressants to try and help, which I am so happy to say I have never had to take!  You’ve taught me that I don’t need to feel anxious, full of worry or sad all the time and provided me with the tools to take away and use if I ever felt a wobble.  I can honestly say I am happier, brighter and more confident than ever!  Even my doctor noticed a difference in me straight away on a routine visit last week.  So thank you" x Jess.

"Thank you for some wonderful help and plenty of tools to keep for when I need them." S.D. Okehampton.

"Teresa meeting you with your assistance has made a huge change in my life, thank you. Warm regards, and a huge hug." S.C. Exeter

A few testimonials from my clients

A lovely note from a show jumper I treated recently who kept stopping!

Yesterday I went showjumping - I would just like to say a huge thankyou for helping me over the past couple of weeks it has been so helpful. I went clear yesterday and it has given me so much confidence and I feel as though I can move up again now! Once again, thank you so much for the confidence and the belief !!

A little note from one of my horsey clients who was having a wobble jumping 60cms when they came to me!

Hi Teresa 
Did my first XC in over 6 months today and it was brilliant ! I did the 80 cms and he flew and we were second somehow!!!!!! So pleased, he flew and there were so many people in it so we were not expecting that! Just need a securer lower leg then hopefully we will be there it was a great start to the season !

Thank you for all the help you have given me xx

And one from many who I have helped with confidence issues in riding

I was having issues in my riding my fears were overcoming my pleasure in hacking and general riding, these fears were completely unfounded and were more a fear of ‘what if’ then any actions by my horse, I was at the point of having to give up my lifelong passion of riding as I could not continue these rides when I was quaking inside. A friend of mine suggested Hypnotherapy, I had never used this form of treatment but was so anxious to get some help that I searched the Internet I came across Teresa’ site and immediately was drawn to her credentials and also her picture showed someone who looked warm, friendly and welcoming, this was exactly who Teresa is when I first met her, she led me through the sessions we had with calm, good humour, confidence and made me feel totally at ease. After these sessions I always left feeling a sense of peace however I was not certain that they had ‘cured’ my issues riding, until I rode again, I could not believe the difference I felt and continue to do so, working on the techniques that Teresa gave me.After finishing my therapy Teresa keeps in touch via e-mail and always make certain that should I need her she is only a phone call away. I do not have the words to thank Teresa but she has made my world complete again……Thank you thank you thank you”..

A little Lad who was not sleeping.

Hi Teresa. I hope you are well? Just wanted to tell you that we've been having a bit of a tricky time with ******* (he's 8 now) and being able to relax and get to sleep and stay asleep all night! We've had 3 solid weeks of it and then yesterday I remembered the CD you gave me to listen to before bed. So I put it on for him and guess what, he went off to sleep while listening to it and had 12 hours of sleep! We feel like new people this morning! He said this morning "please can we listen to that lady's calm voice again tonight". Bless him and thank you!!!!! xxx
