I went to see Alison (Alison Middleton) as I was experiencing tremendous anxiety around my elderly mum’s health and in particular before her oncology appointments. I had such a dread of hearing bad news and that her cancer has returned and the anxiety around this would start to build up a few weeks before. It had become a real issue for me and had started to take over my life.
After working with Alison over a period of the last 9 months my anxiety has decreased, and I am much better able to handle the appointments. I have found that I take them much more in my stride now. I am much much calmer and don’t get the build up to them.
Alison has also given me various tools – the suggestions and recording she has done for me as well as the self-hypnosis, the EFT tapping and visualisation techniques, which she has taught me, and these have been really helpful.
I would have no hesitation in recommending hypnotherapy and Alison. Alison is so approachable and down to earth. She intuitively seems to be able to know just what I need and goes out of her way to ensure I am comfortable with what we will be doing and she also takes time to check in with me in between sessions, which I have really appreciated. I feel she really cares. I felt very safe in her hands and was able to open up. She was great to talk to too about other areas in my life so I’ve been able to make changes for the better, such as no longer relying on alcohol quite so much to help me through the bad days. I am now planning to work with Alison going forwards to get my life on track in other areas too. I feel the life I want is in reach with Alison’s guidance and I really trust her and believe she can help me.
