The sessions and exercises enabled us to find new ways of expressing our feelings for each other and avoid misunderstandings. This has strengthened our relationship and enabled us to show our feelings in a way we have never felt able to before.

Imagine a ball of wool, unravelled and knotted, left aside as ‘too much trouble’; that’s what my life felt like until I met Annette. She has helped me unravel the wool and now I am creating a beautiful garment – me! I went in to meet her wanting to stand on my own two feet and I have achieved that using the tools given to me by Annette.
Annette really helped me work through my issues of anxiety and anger. She taught me how to control my anger and think in a more positive and stress free way. I had a few issues to resolve and with Annette’s help I could do that, she makes you feel very calm and comfortable and does not rush you through things.
I now feel much more positive and confident and it’s so good to know I’m not alone and could always contact a caring and friendly person for help.
Annette was completely non-judgemental and treated me as a whole human being rather than a ‘problem drinker’. For years I had been plagued by shame and self-loathing because of excessive drinking. Annette allowed me to dictate the pace of therapy and I gradually reduced the amount I was drinking. I am absolutely delighted with the outcome. I am in control, and as a result, I am happier, healthier and wealthier! I am also more confident because I am not constantly trying to hide my drinking. I can thoroughly recommend Annette. She made what I feared would be either impossible or a long and difficult process, very easy and actually quite relaxing. There is nothing to fear in therapy when it is carried out by someone as professional as Annette.
Throughout my life I have suffered from depression and at times severe panic attacks, anxiety and worry, etc. I felt so much at ease at my initial meeting, the session was fantastic. I felt great when I came out, really positive and Annette gave me quite a few exercises which really helped.
I had buried childhood emotions so deep I could not resolve them. It was only through Annette’s help that I achieved this and have been able to move forward. Her understanding approach and professionalism made the experience calming and highly valued.
What a saving angel I found Annette to be when I needed it most. I dread to think what would have happened if I hadn’t found her. Just to have someone listen, not condemn, and say the feelings are normal, was such a relief. I have recommended her to many friends in similar situations.
Meeting Annette has changed so many things for the better in my life. Annette made me feel so comfortable from the first time we met she was so understanding and so easy to talk to. I have learnt so much from my sessions. Through counselling I learnt just how much more was behind my feelings without even knowing it was there. The hypnotherapy was wonderful and really relaxed me. I would recommend Annette to anybody who was looking for help.
I would like to say a big thank you for all your help with my daughter who battled anxiety, low mood and poor self-esteem. We all supported her as best as we could but it was your contribution that really made the difference. She always came off the phone a lot calmer after speaking to you, you obviously have a skill there. It gave her the courage to let go of old habits and embrace the new.
