“I had a number of appointments with Claire for some bad habits which she identified were linked to an underlying anxiety problem. Claire was amazing – all the sessions were at my own pace and Claire showed immense skill in her ability to listen and respond helpfully. I am astounded at how well the hypnosis has worked.”


“I had a number of sessions with Claire for managing tinnitus and anxiety. She was really helpful and thorough, with practical advice and very supportive and understanding. She gave me longterm relaxation and anxiety management advice and tools – I went from such a high state of anxiety to a point where I felt happy and confident in just a few sessions really. Very much recommend.”


“I saw Claire, who was very friendly and made it easy to discuss my problems with her in our initial meeting. She certainly understood my issues (far better than I did it seemed!) and explained how we would tackle them and how long she expected it to take. After 5 sessions (as predicted!) I felt so much calmer and better about myself so we ended there. I have already referred a friend of mine to Claire and wouldn’t hesitate to do the same again.”
