After only a few sessions, I felt much better. My life is more focused and Cathy is always around should you need extra help, and I am now, with the help from Cathy, setting new goals into place for the future as I now have more confidence and able to explore different areas in my life and career "
It took a lot for me to ask for help and I am so glad I chose you to help me.
After years of suffering in silence with very little support from family and peers, I took my first positive step.
The way in which you explained how I was thinking was really easy to understand and your kind, soft voice helped me to feel at ease.
The sessions were nice and informal with the wonderful relaxation at the end which helped me to realise that I have never really known how to relax and turn my ever thinking brain OFF!
After a few lovely sessions, I noticed that I was no longer worrying about running my business, training my puppy and generally worrying about my daughter who is now a grown woman. All the day to day stresses and strains have just melted into positive and achievable goals. I have also learnt to say “No” instead of trying to squeeze things in to suit other people. Although it is nice to help others, it is a lot better if I put my own well-being first.
Your sessions have helped me to turn my life around and that is all thanks to you, your expertise, knowledge and kind nature.
Thank you once again. "
My first consultation I was nervous even anxious but it melted away as I sat down, I felt comfortable opening up to Cathy she made me feel welcome and helped me navigate my mind. I always looked forward to my sessions and I noticed a change, I felt more positive toward myself and the way I looked at things. I would truly recommend Cathy Cartwright and Fresh thinking hypnotherapy to anyone especially those that need a positive boost, she helped me become the old me, the best me and even better. Thank You Cathy
Thank you Cathy for helping me to conquer my negative thoughts. "
By chance I found one of Cathy's leaflets and thought I would give it a try. What had I to lose?
Thank goodness I did. After just one session with the lovely, calming Cathy I could at last see the light at the end of this very long tunnel. She helped me turn from negative to positive thinking and showed how I could empty my "stress bucket".
After several sessions I am now so much calmer, have no problem leaving the house and feel I have been given back my life. If ever I have a negative moment I think of Cathy's voice saying "I can, I will" and positive feelings come flooding back.
Thank you so much Cathy. You have changed my life. "
I was surprised by how quickly I started feeling the effects and only after the first session. I felt as if I was thinking more clearly and focusing on more positive things in my life rather than hanging on to the negative. This continued and got even better with each session.
Not only the hypnotherapy but also speaking with Cathy each week really helped me, she is such a lovely person and so easy to talk to. I truly believe that my weekly sessions with her, have helped me cope with my new life in the UK and not only have I noticed a positive mental change, but I have finally started to lose the weight that I gained since moving here. It was such a struggle before but now it is so much easier.
I feel great with the changes that have been brought on since then and put what I’ve learned into practice every day to make sure that I continue to see such great positive changes in my life.
Even after my therapy has ended, I continue to listen to the CD provided each night to help me fall and stay asleep, it is great tool to ensure that I get the deep sleep that I need and has positive assurances to keep me in my positive brain.
Just want to say thank you, Cathy, for all your help. I truly appreciate everything you’ve helped me accomplish. "
Cathy made me feel relaxed and at ease from the beginning. She explained the process clearly, and listened to my reasons for attending, and didn’t make any judgements. In fact she actually supported my right to feel how I did, which was reassuring even before hypnosis.
I have had hypnosis before and was fully aware throughout those sessions. In Cathy’s I was nearly fast asleep!!!
I listened to the CD she gave me. Even after the first session I was aware that my reactions to the CD was changing to a more positive view of myself. I found myself in situations which I would have felt uncomfortable in, and was surprised to see how confident I felt. No changes in how I fitted in. Just much more comfortable in my own skin, which is what I really wanted.
I had 3 sessions in all, from my choice, and a good 2 months on am still benefitting from the results.
I would have no hesitation to recommend Cathy, and would certainly go back if I had other issues to address. "
A professional approach to all that she did, coupled with endless patience, gave me all that I needed to overcome quite deep set problems. She has also left me with the knowledge I need to get through any future recurrences.
I would recommend Cathy in an instant "
I made an appointment to see Cathy after reading great testimonials on the internet. Cathy helped me understand how the brain works when coping with stress. Importantly Cathy taught me how make better decisions through relaxation and hypnotherapy. Cathy and I worked together through simple positive steps to tackle my problems.
My life is now much happier after a series of consultations. I can now independently deal with the day to day running of my business. My decision-making is much clearer and I have increased sales in my business through my positive thinking. I now have better relations with my customer base. My life in now in my control. "
Cathy was recommended to me - she has been so patient and she always puts me at ease and is a good listener and she explained to me in simple terms how the brain works and why it works in different ways - and a relaxed body gives you a relaxed mind and that's where the hypnotherapy comes in - and the relaxation CD which Cathy gave to me I listen to every night and this has helped me sleep better. She has taught me how to see things differently - To think about the positives of the day and not the negatives. I felt like I was going mad but since I've been seeing Cathy I have realised that wasn't the case - my brain was tired and relaxation and hypnotherapy does help.
Since I've been seeing Cathy I can see how far I have come as I am no longer taking anti- depressants anymore which I never thought would happen - if Cathy can help me then she can help anyone 100%. "
As a direct result, at the end of the session the participants said they felt refreshed, could think with more clarity and generally felt more positive. "
I had a few sessions. I was a little apprehensive about broaching a new kind of way of dealing with my feelings but, from the very first session, I departed a different man. There was a change for the better. Cathy made me feel at ease, enough to talk about things; I was very relaxed. She is very easy to talk to.
We discussed my issues and she made me look at things from a different perspective. She taught me how to think differently, in a clearer and more focused way when things were troubling me. Cathy explained how the brain works in simple terms and the parts that are there to protect me. During the second part of the session, I listened to the music and her soothing, calming voice made me so relaxed that I went into a world of my own. I had a feeling of leaving my body and going somewhere else but returning feeling very comfortable, more confident and positive.
I now deal with my feelings completely differently in every aspect of my life, from personal to business. Friends and family have noticed a massive change in me. I feel good.
I would certainly recommend this lady to anyone with underlying issues. She is a true professional "
Cathy did not make any outlandish claims as to the effectiveness, but was confident that Hypnotherapy could help me to relax. The treatment itself is very relaxing.
I noticed a difference in my Bruxism straight away. Cathy clearly understands how to help people access and address negative sub-conscious actions.
I personally intend to continue my treatment and would not hesitate in recommending Cathy to others” "
Cathy’s lovely personality made me feel completely at ease very quickly. She is a very genuine lady, thoroughly committed to helping and her determination and care are powerful forces behind her absolute professionalism and expertise in her field.
The relaxation and de-stress sessions were not only enjoyable in themselves but they had long lasting effects. I felt that I had greater reserves of patience in dealing with all manner of situations, from issues at work to the children arguing at home! The sessions gave me a calm centre from which to control situations rather than feeling that I was being carried away powerless on the tide of events and the emotions created by those events.
As regards public speaking, the benefits were enormous in minimising nerves – especially in the days running up to the event. Normally nervousness would overshadow the event, but this time I could focus on the positive aspects of the event which made the whole experience more enjoyable.
I felt very much in control whilst making my speech and I am convinced that this aided my success. Cathy promoted self-belief and made me focus on the task in hand in a more detached manner so that I could make the speech to the best of my ability without being distracted by nerves and personal considerations of how I would come across. Instead, Cathy encouraged me to focus on what it would take to succeed and cleared a path for me to apply myself to that task.
I would not hesitate to recommend Cathy sessions to anybody considering Hypnotherapy "
Cathy from the moment we first spoke, made me feel at ease. I did not feel silly telling her about myself and what I wanted to achieve. After my initial session, I had every confidence Cathy was the right person. She is such a warm, welcoming yet professional person who listened.
My Hypnotherapy focused on weight management and my chocolate addiction. I felt amazing, relaxed and fully enjoyed it.
Since my Hypnotherapy, I cannot believe how I have not even thought about chocolate. The scales are moving in the right direction and I just feel simply amazing.
Really looking forward to my next session with Cathy, it has been life changing "
I was referred to the hospital dentist with a view to having Botox treatments. Hypnotherapy was suggested to me. I was very sceptical to say the least, but as I was suffering so much, I was prepared to try anything.
The first session of Hypnotherapy was very pleasant. I felt very calm, relaxed and I noticed afterwards that my teeth were quiet for a while. As the sessions progressed, I noticed a significant reduction in my teeth grinding – my teeth were quieter for longer periods. After about five sessions, the grinding had stopped altogether and months on down the line, has not returned. Peace perfect peace!
I attended an arranged appointment with the hospital dentist who discharged me saying that as I was no longer experiencing Bruxism, I didn’t require any treatment with Botox.
All I can do is thank Cathy for bring peace to my mind and to my teeth. People have noticed a huge difference. I am no longer sceptical about hypnotherapy and would highly recommend it. "
A bad experience in my early teens had left me with a crippling fear and even phoning for an appointment could leave me shaking and in floods of tears.
I was referred to Cathy and after my initial consultation we both agreed my course of treatment should be two de-stressing sessions, a rewind session and then a reframe session.
Cathy gave me a copy of her CD to listen to - which I did, every night.
The day of my appointment arrived and I listened to the CD the night before and again in the morning, I even took my I-pod with me to the dentist. To my surprise I remained calm and totally in control of my emotions and was in and out of the dentist in 35 minutes, the actual procedure took about 20 seconds - I don't know who was more shocked - me or my dentist!!
I still listen to my CD most nights. I feel much better about everything, my job, my home life, my stress levels are down and I'm sleeping much better (and for much longer).I would recommend hypnotherapy to anyone who has a phobia or is generally stressed in their lives - you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
