It can be daunting thinking about undergoing hynotherapy or trying to find solutions to problems or bouts of ill health. To help other people decide if this is the right solution for them it might help to hear about other peoples’ experience.

Here are a few examples of feedback that I have received from clients. I hope that you have found my website and these testimonials useful.

It’s actually a year since I completed my Hypnotherapy sessions with Becky but she asked me to write a testimonial for her site. I was in a very dark place 18 months ago. I can’t reveal my profession but I was snowed under with work and under a serious amount of pressure. In addition, I had previously been involved in a serious car accident ( also linked to work) which led to me having severe problems with my back. To complete the picture, I had problems in my personal life too, which combined with work levels and back pain, led to me trying to take my own life.

Together with counselling, I began a series of sessions with Becky which spanned over 8 months. Becky is relaxed , warm and reassuring and guided me back through my childhood and used a range of symbolic situations and images to help me unravel the tight knot that accompanied my everyday existence. Many of the initial sessions were unsettling for me but I believe they were necessary to help me begin to face my demons. From there she helped me develop many coping strategies and built up my optimism in life once more. I have made many changes to my life since then, I moved departments in my job, took up horse riding( a childhood passion) and developed a new and fulfilling relationship. My life has been transformed and I don’t believe any of it would have been possible without Becky’s help. She has done so much for me, her compassion and understanding, together with firm resolve make her unique and a credit to the therapy world. Thank you so much Becky for everything.

I came to Rebecca initially to help me deal with my Claustraphobia. My job entails many conferences, usually in large buildings with several floors and being unable to use the lifts has been a frustrating and limiting problem for me. Since working with Rebecca in just 4 sessions I was able to use the lift to go a short distance and this increased week on week allowing me to go up to the 12th floor on my recent business event, feeling totally relaxed. It felt unbelievable! Since then, I have used Rebecca again for my fear of flying with equally successful results. I can’t recommend Rebecca highly enough and am very grateful for all she has done for me.

I have been working with Rebecca for a six well period on a weight loss programme using hypnotherapy, EFT and neuro linguistic programming, following a email conversation (my choice)

Rebecca is a very calm, relaxed person who immediately instils absolute trust. She made it easy for me to open up to her and give an insight into why I had a deep seated eating disorder. With her support and training I had 3 very successful weeks where I found it relatively easy to put my compulsions behind me and I was pleased to note a 7lb weight loss. I am still finding ways to overcome deep rooted beliefs with Rebecca’s help.

 Best Regards

When I started to see Rebecca, I was at one of the lowest points of my life. I have battled with depression for a number of years, but this time I was suicidal.

After a particularly bad night, my mum persuaded me that hypnotherapy could help me.

I found Rebecca on the internet, and chose to see her because I thought she had really kind eyes!

When I first met her, I was sure that I’d made the right decision straight away – she was easy to talk to and she put me at ease very quickly.

When we started the hypnotherapy sessions, I can’t really tell you a lot about them, because most of the time I’m asleep! Rebecca says that she had never come across anyone like me before, in that I am the easiest person she has ever worked with!

That has been very lucky for me, because I felt my mood improved from almost the first session. I feel so much better in myself, feel my confidence is much improved,  and my self-esteem is growing all the time.

I am finally learning to value and believe in myself, and a lot of it is due to the help and support Rebecca has given me. I would recommend Rebecca to anyone who is looking for a hypnotherapist.


Steve (Rotherham) 8.1.15

“I can say that after only a few sessions of hypnotherapy I noticed a difference in myself and other people commented on the change in me . I tend to forget how despairing I did feel before treatment but life was certainly pointless, very stressful and one long haul. I now feel much more relaxed and happy and laugh about things that before treatment I would have found irritating.”

Laura M (Sheffield) 15.12.15

I only had 4 sessions with Rebecca and was feeling so much more positive after just 2. I found it really hard to eat infront of others without experiencing a panic attack. She gave me lots of tools I could use, got me to say affirmations and the results came really quickly. The techniques and suggestions really worked and I feel I can go ahead with my new course at College now. Thankyou so much for all you have done for me Rebecca, I’m really grateful.

Sally Anne  (Chesterfield) 18.11. 15

 I had been struggling to lose weight for years yo-yo dieting,trying out all the new fads and had just about given up ever finding a solution to my weight problem. Being 3 stone above my recommended weight, I felt very depressed about my looks when I first came to see Rebecca.

I admit I was a little sceptical to begin with but found Rebecca to be very approachable and informed. I was surprised by the amount of questions she asked in the first session but it made me think a lot about my attitude to food. The information  she gives you each week is amazing and together with our conversations and the hypnotherapy itself, I slowly found myself choosing healthier food.

In addition to the 12 pounds I lost in those first few sessions, I continued to lose the weight since. I am now 10 stone 2 pounds, almost my target weight. No-one can quite believe how much i’ve changed! I am so thankful for all the help  and support I received from Rebecca, I would strongly recommend her to everyone. I’m so happy to tell her I got my life back!  Sally
