“I just wanted to say that after having sessions with Alex things really turned around for me. Alexandra was really lovely and we spent some time working out what my sleeping goals were and what we were going to work on during the sessions. The sessions themselves are very relaxing, just like having a relaxing snooze but somehow also still being awake through it! I got two jobs within weeks of starting the sessions as well as sleeping so much better each night. As a result I feel so much more calm and positive and energised too. I’d fully recommend Alex and her services.”
“I struggle with my sleep a lot, and the last time it happened it seemed to go on for a long time. Alexandra understood what I was going through as she has experienced insomnia before. She understood my concerns, and made me feel completely relaxed and comfortable. She gave me hypnotherapy recordings after the first session which were really relaxing and helped me sleep After my first appointment I felt an improvement. By the time we had our 2nd and 3rd session I had gone from sleeping terribly or not at all for around 5 days a week, to maybe once every two weeks or longer. I extremely recommend her therapeutic style which is positive, straightforward and empathetic. Thanks Alexandra.”
“I approached Alexandra because I was waking up in the night and lying awake for hours. I found discussing this issue with her interesting and learnt a lot about sleep, for example about the adrenaline/serotonin relationship, negative thinking etc which I had not given much thought to before. She suggested several strategies for relaxing and getting myself back to sleep (including her Relaxation recording) which have really helped. She also provided me with techniques which were great to have as a reminder of the things we discussed in the sessions. Thanks Alexandra!”
“When I first saw Alexandra, I was at my wits’ end with insomnia. It was so awful and had been going on for so long (two years at least), that I felt depressed. I had seen every kind of practitioner, and had been to workshops and sleep clinics without any success. I’d tried sleep restriction, mindfulness meditation, tiring myself out with exercise and yoga, cutting out caffeine, you name it. Consequently I had fairly low expectations of my first session with Alexandra. But within minutes of the our session starting, I felt more relaxed than I have in years. The hypnosis part was absolute bliss, and I came away feeling as though my poor frazzled brain had been given a lovely soothing massage. Having the recording to listen to each day has been a lifesaver. At first it helped me feel as though I was catching up on the sleep I wasn’t having at night. Later I realised that I was actually ‘dropping off’ while listening, something I thought my body had forgotten how to do. And bit by bit, my sleep is returning. As far as I’m concerned, Alexandra has magical powers. If you’re an insomniac or suffering from depression, seeing Alex should be your absolute priority.”
I’ve never been a good night time sleeper and would often lay in bed from the middle of the night onwards wide awake, pressuring myself to get to sleep with my mind whirring at 100 miles per hour. It was so annoying to know the next day I would be functioning at half capacity due to a dreadful nights sleep. With the techniques Alex has taught me I can not only get to sleep but if I do wake in the night I can manage to go back off. Plus Alex gives you tools to use at home and recordings to listen to, all of which has been a huge help. The whole process is extremely calming and helps me to relax. I would thoroughly recommend Alex to anyone having similar problems.”
“I was going through a rough patch, suffering from anxiety and poor sleep, and my counsellor and GP recommended hypnotherapy. I had tried it once before and it hadn’t really done much for me, but Alexandra specialises in helping with anxiety and sleep problems using hypnosis. From the very first session Alexandra was helpful, understanding, insightful and professional. During our sessions she explained what was going to happen in advance, so there was nothing unexpected. I felt completely safe. She asked lots of questions about lifestyle and habits, and to rate issues on a scale so we could measure improvement. The sessions were very relaxing and provided mental relief surprisingly quickly. She also gave me training on using EFT and other stress management techniques. She also provided a techniques and hypnotherapy recordings to use in between sessions. After 5-6 sessions I no longer need sleeping tablets and sleep beautifully. Thank you Alexandra for all the support and excellent treatment you provided. I really recommend her services.”
“I went to see Alex regarding my driving phobia after having a few accidents. The hypnotherapy was amazing and I no longer have the phobia. Not only has Alex helped me with my driving, she also helped me with other aspects of life. Thank you so much Alex”
“I started sessions with Alexandra last November after suffering social anxiety for a number of years. I had tried Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at uni to try to understand and deal with it but failed to get much of response. I was very skeptical at first about hypnotherapy as I was unfamiliar with the field and as a very skeptical kind of person I went into it believing it wouldn’t work much at all. However, I was wrong as after seeing Alexandra for around 6-7 sessions I have made a significant improvement and really would recommend her sessions to anyone suffering any form of anxiety. Through Alexandra’s support, and her guidance of ways to deal with anxiety, I have reached the point of being able to manage my fear of social situations to the point of feeling only a little anxious or completely relaxed in situations I used to find terrifying. Without Alexandra’s support I would not be where I am now and my only advise if you’re skeptical is to give a session a go!”
“When I first started a month ago, I had anxiety, worrying and self esteem problems, among other little things.
Since I’ve started going to the session and doing the given homework, I’m getting better and better. I’m getting less stressed, angry, my self esteem has gone up…I’m very happy with the outcome!”
“I quite badly struggle with my sleep from time to time, and the last bout seemed to go on for a while. Alexandra understood what I was going through, and was extremely positive from the go. She understood my reservations, but made me feel completely relaxed and comfortable, and up for giving her sessions a go. She gave me exercises, hypnosis and hypnotherapy recordings during the sessions which were really relaxing and beneficial.
After our first session, I felt an improvement in my sleep within a few days. By the time I had my second and third session I had gone from sleeping badly for 5 days a week, to only once a week. After completing the six sessions my sleeping is completely back on track and I look forward to going to bed : ) I thoroughly recommend her for a therapeutic approach which is positive, straightforward and understanding.”
“Alex has basically fixed my sleeping problems using some very effective techniques and the sessions have been a pleasure. She has a highly perceptive understanding of the mind and couldn’t be more professional or comfortable to talk to.”
“After over 40 years of nail and skin biting I decided to try one final method that I have always thought would never work, Hypnotherapy!
I had an initial free consultation with Alexandra where she asked various questions about why I wanted to stop and how the process would work and I soon bonded with her and realised that she really wanted me to stop and believed she could help me.
We had an initial session where you are placed into a trance and then have the same session to listen to at home for the next two weeks. I was amazed that even after this first session I was now subconsciously thinking about when my fingers went into my mouth. One final session tackling it from another angle and I had finally cracked a habit that I have had for half of my life. If only I had not been so ignorant about trying hypnotherapy in the past I could have cracked this years ago!
Alexandra is an extremely friendly person and makes you feel completely as ease. She really enjoys helping you, whatever your bad habit or reason for going. I would definitely recommend her and in fact have gone back to see her for other minor tweaks in my life”
