Steve, Surrey

"I saw Sally to try and help a destructive compulsive gambling addiction that I have been trying to get on top of for 20 years.

She listened to my life story and accurately remembered everything good and bad about me during my treatment.
After 4 sessions of hypnotherapy I feel like something has triggered and the penny has finally dropped.

Now I am happy and focused again and have my life back from the the dark clouds of addiction, I am eternally grateful. Thank you Sally. I cannot recommend enough. I would return immediately if I felt vulnerable in the future".

Mireille, Horley

Sally is extremely good at creating a warm, safe and calm environment. 

Even though I was sharing some severe traumatic experiences I constantly felt I could do this with Sally as she is completely
non-judgemental.  The guided imagery and rewind techniques sessions were slightly challenging but very liberating.
I recommend her to anyone in need of therapeutic support

Ron Smith, South Godstone

Well, I have no idea how Sally worked this, but from smoking 20 to 30 cigarettes a day for years, after a consultation and one session, I just don’t want to smoke again. Sally informed me, that I’d probably need some will power as well. However, will power has not entered in to the equation. I just have not even fancied nor do I fancy a cig. No stress, no prob.  
Thanks Sally

Julian, Reigate

All clean so far. 

A few hairy moments when out for a drink with smokers but nothing passed my lips since I last saw you!

Three weeks on Monday!
Regards, Julian

Kate, Ambulance Service

Simon, Godalming

I was delighted with the help and service I received from Sally. 

I felt comfortable and relaxed throughout the work we did together and the benefit to my peace of mind was considerable.

Thank you!
