*”After a particularly stressful 6 months which included a family bereavement, illness and additional work responsibilities, I started to suffer increasingly from anxiety and panic attacks. These, became so frequent that I wouldn’t socialise and eventually was unable to go to work.
Although I had suffered from panic attacks before, which had been treated through medication, I went to Julie in the hope that hypnotherapy would offer an alternative to another long course of medication. At our first session, I was particular anxious as my problem had made me fearful of any new situation, however Julie quickly reduced my levels of anxiety by using EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to a level where I felt comfortable. Julie’s professional and caring manner gave me the confidence to start the hypnotherapy sessions.
Immediately after the first session I noticed I was far calmer and more relaxed. Part of me still expected that I would have another panic attack, however as the following week progressed I didn’t have one attack – there where a few times when I felt anxious, but I was able to control the anxiety and prevent it from spiraling out of control.
With subsequent sessions, I continued to improve to the point that I now have regained complete control of my life and I am able to take on new situations which I would have avoided prior to Julies’ hypnotherapy sessions. I haven’t had a panic attack since my first meeting with Julie – amazing.
I went to Julie with an open mind but wasn’t expecting any major improvement with my problem. I was, and I am still amazed at the difference that the sessions with Julie have made to my well-being. I would strongly recommend hypnotherapy sessions with Julie, to anyone who has experienced similar panic or anxiety problems.”
*”IBS is not an illness but it is a problem that destroys the quality of life for the sufferer. It grew on me gradually and whilst I could eat normally at home, outside in a social environment I began to dread eating with the resultant problems which this involved. In the end I had to refuse all invitations which involved food. For over a year I tried all the medications prescribed by my doctor, but none helped.
Then I met Julie James. I had read that hypnosis could help find the underlying problems which caused IBS to start and take hold. Julie has transformed my life by finding the causes of which I was unaware, with the result that even after only one session I was so confident that I forgot that there had ever been a problem.
The result is a miracle that has transformed my life. I am now rid of the IBS, feel physically and mentally well and completely back on an even keel. I cannot thank Julie enough.”
*”I was diagnosed with M.S. in June 1990 although I probably had it a couple of years before that. I have remitting relapsing M.S. as opposed to primary progressive, which means I have attacks, rather than a slow decline. This can change to secondary progressive any time it wants to. One of the most debilitating symptoms was chronic fatigue, which can strike at anytime anywhere and for no reason. It doesn’t happen because I’ve over done it. I could get out of bed and have fatigue by the time I’ve got down stairs. Fatigue can last days, weeks or months, there is nothing you can do. I no longer worry about it thanks to Julie James and hypnotherapy. I still at times have feelings of fatigue but they pass in about 15 to 20 minutes, so I no longer have that hanging over my head.
My eyes were giving me a lot of pain due to double vision which has been going on since May, I am due to go to the eye hospital on 7.01.02. My eyes became very sensitive to the cold, and I found I could not walk near to the freezer aisles in the local supper market. This was becoming very distressing, because if we had a cold winter I would not be able to leave the house without being in a lot of pain, now due to Julie, teaching me self-hypnosis I can guard against this by hypnotic suggestion. So this allows me to shop and leave the house without worrying.
Since being diagnosed with M.S., I started to suffer with cluster migraines, which have increased in severity and frequency over the last four years and these have a direct effect on the M.S. Now due to techniques taught to me by Julie, I can if caught in time control them, and even stop them altogether, such as this week I have prevented three of them. Dealing with them in this way they no longer affect the M.S. like they did in the past. Other symptoms that have improved are, my energy levels, my balance and vertigo.
The biggest advantage I feel I have been given is by Julie teaching me self-hypnosis, as anyone who has M.S. knows you have no control over the way its going to effect you and you feel rather at the mercy of it. You are playing a waiting game with what part of your body it will attack next. By learning self-hypnosis, I now have a degree of control over the M.S. for the first time. I now have something to fight back with, and its a great feeling to be more positive about the future for the first time in years, thanks to Julie.”
*”I had always been very sceptical about the effectiveness of hypnotherapy in any shape or form, but when faced with the reality of a psychiatrist telling me I needed to start a course of strong anti-depressants and two weekly sessions of analytical psychotherapy for two years I figured I had nothing to lose.
I have not looked back since. Even after my very first session with Julie I noticed a huge difference in my levels of confidence, my positive outlook on life and a general sense of well-being. Friends and family and even to so close acquaintances have not stopped expressing surprise at the dramatic change in me.
Contrary to my belief hypnotherapy is not temporary and although my last session with Julie was some time ago, I am still experiencing the benefits of this under-rated form of alternative therapy.
It would not be an exaggeration to say I owe Julie my life because without her help, I doubt I would still be here. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”
*”I have been suffering with M.E. for about four years now and throughout that time I have had a severe sleeping problem i.e. I couldn’t get to sleep when I wanted to. The only way I found I could sleep was by resorting to alcohol. This was fine at first just a nip at bedtime but of course one nip led to two etc. Obviously this wasn’t the answer and I was feeling just as ill from the effects of ‘the drink’ as the effects of the M.E.
My GP was unable to help with my sleep problem or any other problems and would not prescribe sleeping pills, (the only thing that actually worked) except for a one-off four week period. It was during this four week period of taking sleeping pills that I realized how important sleep was to my healing process. I had actually felt closer to being a normal human being in that four weeks than anytime in the last four years.
I felt desperate and left to struggle along alone until my Partner spotted an article in the local newspaper about hypnotherapy. I decided to try it and to my absolute amazement it has worked. I am now experiencing better sleep than I have since I became ill and consequently I feel better throughout the day.
Nothing else has helped in the whole time I have been ill and I am really grateful for it. Also I feel I have gained in confidence since my sessions. It has only been a few weeks but I have already found the confidence to go back to the workplace – I no longer feel daunted by the prospect.”
*”I have had back pain for many years and took painkillers until eventually they didn’t work any more. I then looked for another way to help myself. Seeing Julie’s leaflet and then ringing her was the best thing I have ever done. I cannot praise her enough for all the help she has given me, and now not having back pain anymore is wonderful. I would recommend hypnotherapy to anyone especially with Julie.”
