I first came to Nigel about a year and half ago and have just completed my counselling sessions with him. I was part way through teacher training and was utterly miserable with it, very depressed and without hope of success. This alone was brutal and unforgiving, but I was also still reeling from the breakdown of my relationship with my ex-fiancee, with whom I have a child, as well as the fact that I was also still in the process of reforming ties with a family from whom I had been estranged for seventeen years. The demands on me in my professional life and my personal life were too much for me; I was an emotional wreck with too much on my plate and I could not cope. My self esteem was at rock bottom and I felt like I was being crushed by a mountain of my life's failures.

Cut to the present, and yes, of course I passed my teacher training in style. I now regard myself with pride and confidence, and am embarking on a new life with real optimism, justified and hard-earned. Nigel will always say it was me who did all the work, but I know he is being modest. If I was the driver who took my battered old car to his garage, he was the mechanic who turned it into a Rolls Royce. I am indeed a transformed character. Few people truly deserve to be hailed as a 'hero' but in this instance it is wholly appropriate. Nigel is one of mine, and will always be.

I have always found social situations hard but from the first session I felt so relaxed and ready to make a change.

There was no pressure to come back after the first session but I had no doubt I would and I very quickly started to look forward to the sessions.

You are so adaptable that each week we talked and decided what to work on. There were tears, laughter and moments of realisation...all of which were positive.  Within a couple of weeks I and my family and partner were noticing change and I was feeling more confident, happy and relaxed.

I feel so positive for the future and genuinely feel equipped to tacke any hurdles thrown my way.  I wish I could tell everyone and anyone who may be struggling to come to you, you have genuinely changed my life and if anyone is thinking " should I..." I can honestly say yes, please go however anxious/worried or sceptical you may feel.

Although I made many changes, I didn't change, I just found ME again.

Thank you does not seem enough.

Dear Nigel,

I just wanted to let you know... I was invited by The Mayhew Animal Sanctuary to their charity ball, and I went!

I was feeling very anxious before hand but as we discussed I greeted the anxiety like an old friend, I had already decided not to drink so I felt fully in control and could leave if I felt overwhelmed or frightened, which I did at times, however I did have a couple of glasses of fizz and really enjoyed myself.

I couldn't have done any of that without your help, I have come, I can now see that your right, I really have come such a long way.

Really looking forward to our next session.

Best wishes

Nigel,

I cannot thank you enough for your help with my exam nerves and the assistance with recalling lost information.

I was extremely sceptical that hypnosis would have any benefit, especially as we knew we would only be able to have two sessions. I had never heard of anchoring or anchor points but literally as soon as I sat down and triggered the anchor you set I became instantly calm and very concise, with amazing recall.

The appropriate information just seemed to tumble out of nowhere. It was almost a magical experience. In fact I've told other people that you are a magician. Very many thanks for all your help and I would certainly recommend you to anyone.

Regards

A.W.

Dear Nigel,

We found your approach to stress and anxiety to have been extremely helpful to our company; both in the group workshop and the individual follow up.

The presentation was concise and full of good usable information. As a result of this, and identifying and working with members of staff who clearly had more ingrained issues than I imagined, I can honestly say that it has made a very real difference to morale, teamwork and performance (including less days off sick). The atmosphere in the office is more positive and energised and apparently there have been positive benefits in home lives as well.

Please feel free to use this referral wherever it may be appropriate. We look forward to working with you regularly in the future.

Yours sincerely,

Best regards,

N.D.
Team Leader

Hi Nigel,

You'll be glad to know that I've been absolutely fine while I've been away. I spent the first 3 days waiting for the usual anxiety to kick in but astonishingly it didn't. Truthfully I had no confidence that such a curious process would work and I felt no different when I left after the first session but this is the first time in 10 years I've not suffered from anxiety and panic attacks while I've been away. As you know I tried mindfulness and CBT without success (Actually the mindfulness made me worse). I don't understand how something so simple can be so effective but who cares, it works. I'm looking forward to our remaining sessions.

Dear Nigel,

Just a quick thank you.

I've struggled all my life with anorexia and bulimia. Now, for this first time I have peace of mind and I'm confident about the future. For 2 years I've maintained a healthy weight!!! Its a huge relief to me and to everyone around me.

Life looks good. I think I'm a nicer person to be around and I feel more secure and at peace.

Thanks again for all you've done for me.

Hi Nigel,

Flying was fine! AMAZING! I was a bit anxious boarding but 100% OK once I sat down.

Looking forward to the return flight....! Can you believe it?

Why the f.... did I not do something about this years ago.

(J.P. Text message. J.P. Had 3 sessions to deal with his fear of flying.)
