"My anxiety had reached the stage of ruining just about every aspect of my life, work relationships and my health. The tablets I was taking from the doctor really only made me feel worse. A friend recommended Sue and after the first session I was a changed man. I really can't explain how it works, but it does. I can't waste time regretting that I didn't go earlier as I never would have thought of it. I can tell you that most of your problems start in your mind. Just so grateful"

"I was embarrassed to be drinking about two bottles of wine a day and knew I couldn't stop it. It was damaging my marriage and I was spending money I didn't have. I was full of good intentions, but always failed. Every Monday morning I'd tell myself I was stopping and every Monday evening I found myself sloshed. Two of my friends saw Sue and if they could change their drinking patterns then so could I. It was ridiculously easy, and it only took one session! Lost a lot of weight and gained self esteem and a good bank balance. Hope this helps other women who are worried about their drinking:)"

"We talk about being stressed but until it hits you no one has an idea of how bad it is. I thought I was dying or having a heart attack and yet I knew it was my own thoughts that were doing it. Sue was so kind and understanding and I trusted her at once. After just one session I felt normal again and she taught me skills to keep me calm that I can use for the rest of my life. I can face Christmas with a postive attitude."

"I have now been off my insulin for 6 months. I waited to send you this as I couldn't believe my success would last. GP is surprised but couldn't argue with the blood tests. Losing weight has given me a new lease of life. That is sweeter than any chocolate I used to scoff. You changed this old diabetic for life. Thanks doesn't seem enough."
