Chris Warren from Drefach, Llanelli has a horrendous motorcycle accident that left him with a right arm that he could not move from the shoulder for many years. Eventually he had two operations to relocate the arm in the joint properly and then to transfer muscle tissue from another part of his body in an effort to regain movement. Both ops went wrong in that he developed serious infections. When that was solved he still couldn’t move the arm. Physio did not help much even though he could move the arm with his left one.
Finally his surgeon told him he could not do any more other than offering to stitch the arm to his side to stop it flopping about. After 1 session with me the arm ‘clicked’ properly into place. After 2 more sessions he was able to freely move the arm. After 3 sessions he reported he had 80% mobility back in the arm and he was highly delighted. After his final session he wrote to me ‘ At the beginning of the therapy I had severe pain and lack of movement in the shoulder. I COULD NOT GET THROUGH THE PAIN ISSUE, SO IT WAS EASIER NOT TO MOVE MY ARM, AFTER 4 SESSIONS MY ARM IS 99.9% PAIN FREE’
On a scale of 1-10 for effectiveness Chris rated this therapy a ’10’ and said ‘I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND TO SOMEBODY.’
Jill of Carmarthen, following her three hypnotherapy sessions, said “I’ve been given the ability to lead myself where I want to go. I believed I couldn’t motivate myself. Now I can, and I feel I can do anything. I feel proud of myself now, and not afraid to be myself.”
Mark wrote: “Despite being worried at the idea of seeing a therapist, I was amazed that 3 sessions resolved issues which I’d spent most of my life trying to resolve.”
Jean of Swansea had specific goals that she wanted to achieve. Jean is 48 years old and spoke to me recently after completing a very difficult marathon. She was thrilled that even though she is short and, in her own words, “not sporty”, she had come in ahead of a lot of people much younger than her. She described her two sessions of therapy as “focusing my mind on achieving my goals and visualizing the end result. It’s made me very positive about everything, so that when obstacles appear, it gives me the focus to keep on going on with it. Now that I’m in the right mind frame, I know anything is achievable. I’m able to focus my mental processes to do things — and I know it works.”
Client Cheryl of Carmarthen didn’t feel in control of her life. She lost 9lbs over the course of three sessions, losing 1-2lbs a week. She said “I haven’t been on a diet, and I’m not hungry at all. I eat no rubbish and think about what I eat. I am more relaxed and in control – my children and colleagues at work have noticed that I’m happier and more positive, even about things I can’t do anything about. Before I would have been unnerved by aggressive people – now I can just be detached from my anxiety and deal with them. I feel very different. It’s nothing like I expected. When we do trance work I know I’m in control of what’s happening. I’m not asleep but feel in such a very comfortable state. I feel in control even when I could be quite vulnerable. The positive changes I’ve made have had beneficial effects on my family and my colleagues.”
Client Elaine of Llanybydder brought her uncontrolled “comfort” eating back under her control after one session. After a second session her weight remains steady, she is less anxious & emotional issues have been ironed out too. She described it as “like switching a light on & off – like being put back into control of that part of your life – but it’s not like being on a diet & each time feeling you’ve blown it if you have a binge. I can indulge occasionally if I choose to, but I’m in control of what I eat.”
Client Fiona of Llandysul was sceptical before she had her session. She’d been smoking for 19 years & had been trying to give up for the past year. She said: “I’m telling everyone it’s absolutely brilliant! It was so easy – I had no cravings & no withdrawal symptoms at all.” Fiona stopped smoking after one session.
Client Jo of Carmarthen related how much it helped her to discuss all the reasons, events and attitudes that were contributing to her excess weight. She found it very helpful to go back to the origin of the problem using time-line therapy because she was able to see now in retrospect how insignificant that specific event is. She lost 23lb over the space of a few months and continues to lose weight. She said, “For the first time in my life I feel that weight loss is a viable expectation and dependent only on my choice.”
Client Natalie of Tenby was a 15 yr old girl with a serious anger problem. She learnt quickly and within 3 sessions her life has been turned around. “I feel so much lighter” she said after letting go of her rage about past issues.”
Ellie in her first session was freed from a life threatening alcohol addiction and released from her depression. With further help from a few more sessions she was able to release her painful feelings and thoughts regarding an abusive ex husband and now lives a happy and fulfilled life.
Del of Carmarthen wrote how this work enabled her to get her comfort eating under control. She said “Now I am eating a lot healthier and I don’t binge eat on chocolates, crisps, cakes & biscuits any more. This therapy has helped me work through my problems one by one and now I feel as if I am back in control of my own life” . Del scored this therapy work as 100% very helpful to her.
Dawn of Pembs wrote: “This therapy helped me to stop smoking, and just as importantly helped me to feel more relaxed, confident and happy with myself and my life generally”.
Yvonne of Carmarthen was helped with relationship problems. She wrote: Hypnotherapy pinpointed the areas of my life I needed to change for positive growth. In changing thought patterns, beliefs and attitudes it has enabled me to feel a part of the world and the human race, rather than (as previously I was) an outsider. Now I am more trusting and open with other people. I am also more centered and have more belief in myself.
