I was struggling with lack of confidence, peer pressure and exam nerves, all of this culminated in my eating and sleeping habits being compromised. Initially I was very nervous to try something different as I didn’t know enough about hypnotherapy, and to accept help from someone else, but I went in with an open mind and was surprised by how much only a few sessions completely changed my outlook. Hypnotherapy has enabled me to become a more positive, happy and relaxed person. She taught me simple skills which I am able to use myself to help my anxiety and general outlook on life. I didn’t realise how negative I was, my confidence was low and I had so much going on in my head, I couldn’t believe how adaptable the therapy was to deal with it all bit by bit. I looked forward to each session and didn’t feel self conscious or scared as I was made to feel very comfortable in a totally relaxed environment. Lesley, thank you for turning my life around and helping me to be who I really am. You are a role model to me, your positive persona really showed me how much I was missing out on by burying my head in the sand.
I had constant discomfort in my shoulder, upper back and neck area. I had never heard of Old Pain 2Go but was willing to try anything to relieve the pain. I was amazed at the immediate relief I felt. It not only took away the discomfort but also the stress. I also have Type 2 Diabetes and a few days later found that my readings had reduced and I felt so much better.
The Online therapy was very effective and I did not have to travel anywhere, I found this to be very comforting. I found Lesley to be very professional and the process extremely relaxing and effective. Working with Lesley has resulted in the discomfort in my back and shoulders decreasing immensely with immediate effect.
After two failed marriages and bringing up two children on my own, I was single again. I’ve been building a business and generally hustling to get back to a place where I feel financially secure and grounded. I have done a huge amount of personal development and grown enormously in the process but I recognised that I was being held back by some limiting self- belief. Lesley was recommended to me but I wasn’t entirely sure hypnotherapy was going to fix the problem as it had been with me for so long. However I had a brief telephone conversation with her and within 30 minutes she had identified that what I actually needed to address, was completely different to the issues I thought were the problem. Lesley chatted to me in her calm, non-confrontational and gentle manner, asking questions and very quickly picking up on some pretty core and fundamental issues which she couldn’t possibly have known about me. My first experience of hypnotherapy and visualisation which centred on releasing and forgiving myself which was incredibly powerful. This was after the first session, I couldn’t wait for the next one. This is the best thing I have ever done, I couldn’t recommend Lesley more highly. I am now running a successful business, travelling and even embarked on a new relationship. Life is good…
Two years ago I was diagnosed with cancer and my world fell apart. I underwent chemotherapy and intense radiotherapy over a six week period. During this time I lost over 10kilos in weight, lost some of my hair and my faith in the future and all things that I considered solid in my world. I was in considerable pain physically and most importantly, mentally. I was in despair every moment of the day, my body ceased to function correctly, I couldn’t think straight and I thought that I was going to die. I met with Lesley a few times and I must say I was sceptical at first, her reassuring and professional manner put me at ease immediately. She seemed to understand my fear and despair and could see that I was troubled about what was going to happen to me. She asked me about my passions in life and when I told her that one of them was playing golf, she said that I would be on the golf course in a few month’s time. I laughed as I could hardly walk up the stairs at the time! She was correct – I was playing golf again (not very well but I didn’t care) and there was a hint of light at the end of my very long tunnel. Lesley made me feel positive about myself because I hated the way I looked and felt and therefore didn’t want to go out in to the world to be seen this way. When meeting with Lesley it was always a positive thing – she made me feel better about myself and the future. Her friendliness, knowledge and empathy was genuine and without her, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I work, play golf, socialise and I’m very near to being the person I was before the cancer. Thank you Lesley for being so wonderful and giving me a new lease on life, I intend to embrace it fully.
I was lacking in confidence and have been struggling with anxiety, I had applied for counselling through my school but I did not find it helpful at all. I saw Lesley’s advert and contacted her straight away. I didn’t know what to expect but after reading her client testimonials I felt I wanted to try it. Lesley explained in detail how it worked and I felt very safe and comfortable with her.
It has been amazing working with Lesley, I was so relaxed and as the sessions went on my confidence was restored and my fears of failure were put to rest. I was able to confront my fears and look forward to starting my very first job which I was excited but apprehensive about before I started my hypnotherapy. Being able to say what I want or need to say to others. Feeling confident and positive about my future. I am able to think things through with clarity and make decisions for myself. I have started going out with friends and socialising without feeling self-conscious anymore. I am actually enjoying my life and who I am and have loved my journey with Lesley.
I wanted to develop confidence in myself and my ability to grow. I had lost all trust and wanted to regain this, I was massively judgemental on myself which made me feel inadequate. I knew Hypnotherapy had become very popular and the success rate is very high so I wanted to give it a go.
Working with Lesley has been lovely, she is very warm and welcoming. I’ve loved the experience and would recommend her to all of my friends and anyone else who wants to make positive changes in their lives. I have seen my confidence grow and I now feel so much more love and respect for what I have done and look forward to continuing to achieve in the future. I am a better version of myself and trust I will do well moving forwards.
I was suffering with severe anxiety and didn’t know what was causing it. I didn’t want to socialise or even go out shopping. I didn’t have any reservations about hypnosis as I had considered it previously but couldn’t find a therapist who I felt comfortable with and trusted. Lesley was introduced to me by my colleague, she did a consultation with me and I knew immediately that I wanted to work with her.
Working with Lesley has been wonderful, from the moment I walked through the door I felt at ease and was able to relax completely. She’s extremely understanding, positive and explains everything in a way you can understand and relate to. I feel the past few weeks whilst seeing Lesley have been invaluable. I feel absolutely content, confident and happy to tackle situations that would have previously made me feel anxious, these sessions have made a world of difference to my life moving forwards. I am truly thankful for this chance to make the positive change and build my confidence.
I was highly anxious and stuck. I started catastrophising about the past and the future and did not know how to get out of it. Someone suggested I try Hypnosis and I have never looked back. My reservation was that I might lose control, I didn’t know anything about hypnotherapy. It didn’t take long to understand how it worked once Lesley had explained it to me and I felt very comfortable.
The whole experience has been very good, it’s very different in the sense that when you leave the session, the process of positive change continues in your unconscious mind so you don’t even have to think about it, it was so easy and relaxing. What I got out of this mostly was becoming more in tough with my unconscious thoughts and releasing all my negative emotions and beliefs and being able to move on with confidence. I definitely enjoy being a better version of who I was before this wonderful journey. I would recommend Hypnotherapy to anyone, it’ll change your life for the better.
I felt stuck, in a rut and wanted to change my mental behaviour and patterns that were holding me back. I didn’t have any reservations, I used Hypnosis many years ago for other issues and it worked well for me then, so I had absolutely no hesitation in using it again. I really enjoyed every session with Lesley, she’s been lovely and I’ve felt totally relaxed and lifted after each session. She is patient and understanding, the sessions were most enjoyable.
Finally making decisions that were right for me, I needed the relaxation and guidance in trusting my unconscious to help me make the right decisions. It has been a fabulous journey and I am feeling totally uplifted and on the right path.
I was suffering with anxiety, confidence, worry and stress. I was concerned that it might not work for me as I was not able to relax. It didn’t take long for me to feel comfortable with Lesley, she is very informative and explained everything clearly so I knew what was going to happen.
I loved the whole process, it was great learning stuff about myself and understanding why I felt the way I did. Lesley is very calming and she helped me to relax I immediately felt comfortable. I built up trust very quickly with her which was important for me. Since seeing Lesley I have been able to deal with upcoming situations and am able to cope better. I feel I have the tools to guide me through making decisions affecting my future and feel confident about it.
Thank you so much Lesley
I was suffering with severe depression and my confidence was extremely low, I needed help and was given Lesley’s name. After reading other people’s accounts of their experience with Hypnotherapy on her website, I was keen to try it. The only reservation I had was that it may not work for me as I had tried it once before at a Derren Brown show. I realise now how different the real thing is and how effective it truly is.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Lesley, she made me feel very comfortable, she is very caring and understanding. I enjoyed each session as I could see the progress I was making immediately after the first one. The best results I have had working with Lesley is that she has helped me to restore my self belief, I am happy and relaxed and look forward to my future with a very positive outlook.
After suffering with anxiety for the past couple of years when travelling through airports, I had never thought about having hypnotherapy. Last month I had an opportunity to travel with work but even the thought of this filled me with anxiety, I found Lesley on Facebook and contacted her, she explained exactly how Hypnosis works and I was keen to try it. I wasn’t sure this would work for me online but I was amazed at how receptive I was and how effective the whole session was for me, it was like sitting in the room with Lesley. The benefits of having therapy online is that I was able to find my quiet, safe space at home without having to worry about travelling or baby sitting or indeed being disturbed by anyone. In one session my entire outlook had changed, with Lesley’s help I was able to get to the centre of my fear which I did not even know was there. I was able to fly with ease and not have to worry about a sudden anxiety attack. I am now able to face each day with a renewed confidence and a positive view to the challenges I’m presented with at work and in my personal life. I feel like I have a new lease on life and am definitely a better version of who I was before Hypnotherapy.
I was in a very dark space. I’ve had a lot of issues from my past and had never dealt with them. I was also made redundant from my job due to the pandemic and felt completely worthless. Lesley helped me break things down and work through them in a way I never thought I could. She made me see things in a different way enabling me to cope with life more positively. Initially, I had reservations about hypnotherapy, I didn’t know enough about hypnosis but once Lesley explained it to me I was happy to try it and it has done wonders for me, I would honestly recommend it to anyone out there who is struggling with issues. I was also concerned about how effective it would be online but I loved the process of doing it on Zoom, it was wonderful, I was in my own comfortable, safe environment and didn’t have to leave home, the whole process was so easy.
Working with Lesley has been an absolute pleasure and very reassuring. I have never once been judged by her (being judged was one of my key issues in life.) She enabled me to see my situation in a different way that I never thought possible. The best thing for me is I don’t have the panic attacks as I used to, I am able to address my concerns and think things through in a calm manner. Lesley taught me breathing techniques which enabled me to fully relax and control my inner thoughts. Hypnotherapy has completely changed my life for the better, I feel so much more confident and worthy.
I was struggling with complete Lack of self-worth and relationship problems. I didn’t have any reservations about hypnotherapy itself as Lesley was very informative during the consultation and I felt very comfortable. I had my first session face to face and when the lockdown was enforced we used zoom for the following sessions, she explained exactly how it would work so the online version was not strange in any way. In many respects it was exactly the same but more convenient as I didn’t need to leave my house and could be very comfortable in my own skin. I have really enjoyed it. I was a little apprehensive at first but Lesley made me feel really at ease and explained every step of the process. The tools and techniques she uses have been very effective and easy to follow and use. Since working with Lesley I have been able to detach from many unhelpful emotions and build belief in myself to a high level. The relationship issues have turned the tide in an almost magical way.
I was suffering with extreme anxiety, unable to leave my home, I couldn’t even face spending time with my family, I stayed in my bedroom as much as I could. I had been in an abusive relationship and felt worthless. I didn’t know anything about Hypnotherapy, it was suggested to me that I try it and only when Lesley explained it in detail did I realise the effects it could have on my situation. I bonded immediately with Lesley so this made it so much easier for me.
Working with Lesley has been amazing, she made me feel at ease and gave me so much support throughout the sessions. I even looked forward to each session as I knew I was already feeling so much more confident and happy in myself. I even started to leave the house and go for walks after the second session. I was slowly but surely becoming me again. The best result I had was when my children noticed the difference in me and said I was ‘different’ and said they liked the good change in me. Having the therapy enabled me to get in my car and drive again after not having done so for nearly a year, it was liberating. I hope people will be inspired by my story as it certainly has changed my life in so many ways. I am truly grateful for this opportunity to turn my life around.
Thank you Lesley
I have always suffered with anxiety, they thought of returning to the workforce after a long period off and especially in the current climate was making me feel ill. I decided to try a different approach as I have explored most other avenues. I was sceptical to say the least. As someone who suffers with anxiety, the one thing that helps is trying to stay in control of any situation or leave it if it became too much. I didn’t think it would work for me because of this. From our first conversation when setting up the trial session, I felt immediately at ease with Lesley. She understood my reservations and reasons behind them. She took her time during the sessions and in doing so, it allowed me to fully relax and take the entire process onboard. I felt that I was in charge and that Lesley was simply guiding me through it. A few weeks on, I realise how important it was for me to be the one making the decisions during each session and not doing anything because someone told me to.
I am no longer filled with fear at the thought of taking on a new challenge. I feel that this has helped me immensely with settling into my new role. I feel much calmer in general and I feel that this has been a welcomed step in improving my “headspace”, I am definitely more comfortable with silence and don’t tend to overthink the smaller decisions I need to make on a daily basis. While I still feel a bit anxious when something new pops up, I feel that I now have the tools to deal with it. I use the visualisations she taught me and take time to breath, so I no longer end up feeling helpless. I didn’t think I would, but I thoroughly enjoyed our sessions and feel that it has made a positive impact on my life. I feel more self-assured and have learnt so much about myself during this process. I would definitely recommend Lesley’s services to anyone who is ready to take the step to becoming a better, calmer and more confident version of themselves.
Lack of self-esteem, lack of confidence in professional ability, Medically diagnosed anxiety that I would like to in future be able to manage without medical intervention. I was worried about if I could not handle the session emotionally or something went wrong I would be left to my own devices and not come out of the trans state. I completely enjoyed every session and looked forward to the next session. I loved the fact that I was in my own space and surroundings which made me feel more comfortable, (on my own bed – happy place), looking out over the garden (happy place).
Lesley’s open and honest communication style makes you feel at ease, from your first conversation. She is really interested in your challenges and you as a person, taking her time to treat and hear the challenges you are facing. This is her passion and it is felt in each session, before, during and after. A very talented, honest and professional therapist who genuinely wants the best for you and this is the base from which I feel she operates. At first, I was very concerned about revealing my deepest darkest secrets to a complete stranger, Lesley was able to put me at ease within the first few minutes. She will not push you to a place where it is not comfortable for you and does this in the sweetest and most honest demeanour, sharing the science/ theory to validate the safety. She balances each session with a personal connection between her and her patient and how the science applies to your treatment. I went to her with an anxiety problem and I came out with a better self- esteem, better confidence in my abilities, less tired, better eating habits (even lost a few Kg’s), enjoying my 2 girls so much (previously, not emotionally and mentally present), love my husband even more. Just so much more relaxed, in control and living in the moment more than in my head. A few days after our final session I was able to address a global audience and feel comfortable, where previously I feared making a fool of myself.
Anxiety, panic attacks and over thinking everything. I was very self-critical and lacking in confidence. I am a student and needed to get through my studies which was proving difficult. I questioned how this could change me as a person, I had my first session face to face with Lesley which I thoroughly enjoyed, and the rest of the sessions were online which I found to be amazing. Once my earphones were in, I was transported to my comfortable place and it felt like her voice was in my head, I was blown away. I also enjoyed being able to do this from the comfort of my own bedroom and it made it possible to continue with the therapy even though I was back at Uni.
I felt very comfortable and relaxed with Lesley, she explained in detail how it would work and the commitment I needed to make this positive change…well it has worked. I trusted her and felt comfortable talking about my issues. At no time did she judge me, she made me feel valued. I felt so much more confident and was able to focus on my subjects, I felt more accepted amongst my peers who I had felt had judged me in the past, this became apparent that it was my thoughts and not actually so. I was able to detach from all my negative emotions allowing me to feel more compassionate with family and friends. This whole experience has made a world of difference to me, it has been an amazing journey. I truly believe students would benefit from this therapy for exam stress and life as young adults.
After suffering with anxiety for the past couple of years when travelling through airports, I had never thought about having hypnotherapy. Last month I had an opportunity to travel with work but even the thought of this filled me with anxiety, I found Lesley on Facebook and contacted her, she explained exactly how Hypnosis works and I was keen to try it.

I am now able to face each day with a renewed confidence and a positive view to the challenges I’m presented with at work and in my personal life. I feel like I have a new lease on life and am definitely a better version of who I was before Hypnotherapy. I loved the online therapy as I was able to find my comfortable place without having to think about driving anywhere. Once the earphones were in, I was completely transported to my happy place.
I knew I wanted more out of my daily life and wanted to achieve more with my sport/career/life & relationships. I wasn’t in a bad place but recognised that I wasn’t fulfilled, and was unable to manage my time more effectively. My only reservation was for myself and if I was able to slow down my very ‘wired’ and busy mind. Lesley was so calm and delivered it so well, I had absolutely no problem going in to a deep trance state and benefiting from the effects.
I saw Lesley face to face. The key points for me were recognising my ‘Truths’, Freedom and Confidence. We worked on these issues and Lesley was very clear about Commitment and Intention. I found her to be very easy to talk to, I felt we could go on any tangent and actually in doing so, the Hypnosis highlighted the real issues that I was dealing with. I finally see where my truths lie, Lesley has been great at identifying how I can take this into my daily life and sport/career areas. She has made me feel very confident in seeing how I can use techniques to bring these in to my daily life.
Funnily, when I read this question, I had to ask my family, “Why did I go to see Lesley?” as I seriously could not remember – seems like she has solved my problems! I sought help from Lesley because I was looking for help with confidence, friendship problems, sleeping through the night and help with the law of attraction and manifesting. I was slightly nervous about hypnotherapy because I didn’t really understand the concept of being hypnotised, but Lesley explained it very well and informed me that I would still be in control and able to break the trance if I felt uncomfortable. I actually really enjoyed hypnotherapy; it’s very relaxing and is great if you’ve just had a busy week.
I had therapy in person – It was absolutely incredible. Lesley is very easy to talk to and open up to. She completely opened my eyes to possibilities that I couldn’t see or didn’t believe could work for me. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Lesley. After the first session I noticed significant changes in my mentality and things just worked out for me. Out of nowhere two very successful people reached out and connected with me, which I am sure my subconscious manifested. Furthermore I found myself thinking differently in situations and being much more confident, making friends much easily. I also began to sleep through the night much better, worrying less about work. It has been a couple weeks since my final session and I feel in a very comfortable place. I feel more true to who I am, have much more confidence and feel able to manifest and use the law of attraction well. I have used Lesley’s hypnosis techniques on myself to help me sleep and they work brilliantly. I would 100% recommend Lesley to anyone and everyone; even if you don’t think you need to change, you don’t have any issues in life, or you don’t think your life could get any better, I am sure Lesley can help you in ways you didn’t even realise there was room for improvement.
I feel happier, more determined, more courageous, more myself.
I had issues with Guilt, People Pleasing and Lacking in Self Confidence. I did not want to allow anyone to interfere with my thoughts or to do things I did not consent to… This proved not to be the case at all, I had full control. Brilliant, Lesley has an excellent manner she is wise and very calming. I felt quite incredible after my first session and the following sessions merely consolidated this in setting intentions and facing new challenges with confidence and new enthusiasm.
Lesley also gave me some fantastic advice for my husband during his illness which has been wonderful. She is passionate about helping her clients and making a difference to their lives. I have learned to take my power back and managed to declutter my life in ways that I never knew were possible as I have been trying to work on things on my own for a long time but this process is working at a completely different level. It is liberating and life changing. My outlook is positive and I am filled with self-belief and self-worth. I should have done it years ago!
Mother of 2
Extreme anxiety becoming too much to live with. I was having dark thoughts which I was unable to control. I didn’t understand how it could work, I questioned if it was real. I had so many questions. Lesley explained the process and assured me of the safety and that I would have full control of what was happening. She was so right! Easy, relieving and mind altering. Lesley is non-judgemental, so very relaxed and patient. I learnt to trust her very quickly as she made me feel so comfortable.
She helped me release feelings of guilt that I have carried for years which allowed me to question my own self worth. The realisation and deeper understanding of who I am and why I don’t need to catastrophise everything as I did. She taught me self care and self love. She also showed me some techniques to use if ever I need to relieve stress and tension.
I knew something was wrong as no matter what I tried I could not move beyond a certain point personally or professionally. I didn’t know where or how to start, with lockdown my feelings of despair seemed to intensify. I reached out and called the NHS helpline. Lesley’s called me as an NHS responder and I was so impressed with her breadth of knowledge and experience. Her friendly down to earth approach she was easy to talk to and I asked if she was offering her counselling services during lockdown.
The process was not daunting, and the homework after each session was very easy to follow helping me understand what was going on. This helped me with my confidence and communication and helped me come to term with the loss of my brother 7 years ago to0.
I was concerned about my health, my blood pressure was very high and I felt afraid to use the machine for fear of the results. This made me feel very anxious and angry. I also had white coat syndrome and fear of dying. I wasn’t sure what to expect but realised I had to try something. Online therapy is amazing, I wish I had done it sooner. Lesley put me at ease straight away, she explained how Hypnosis would help me and answered all my questions. I felt very comfortable and excited to try this. She also did a lot of emotional detachment which helped tremendously to let go of my past which I now know was holding me back and creating my anxiety. We also did some goal setting which has given me a new direction in life.
I didn’t feel the need to test my blood pressure as I felt better after the first session, this put me at ease moving forwards, I believe this helped me to calm down and reduce my stress levels. When I finally did a reading, I felt quite calm and was amazed at how it had dropped to almost being normal This made me realise I had made the right choice. I am in far better health and a good space in my life, I feel calm, I am sleeping well and my confidence is growing every day. I am now looking at reaching my life goals with new enthusiasm.
Social Anxiety and materialistic possessiveness. I found the process really easy and like speaking with a friend. She was very understanding of my situation and helped me through it. She did not judge me and I did not have to talk about anything I didn’t want to.
I am much more relaxed in my own home and not too sensitive of other people touching my furniture and worry if they damage etc. I am very grateful, and I am much more relaxed in my day to day life. I feel more self assured, calm and confident.
