Disclaimer: Please note than myself or any other hypnotherapist cannot guarantee results.
I have recently completed a course of Hypno-Band treatment with Margaret and I am delighted with the results, particularly as I found it much easier than I expected. I do not need to eat chocolate or biscuits any more. I just do not feel the need to do so. I now think “quality” rather than “quantity” and look forward to continuing to lose more weight over the coming months.
I thought I’d drop you a line to say how well I’ve been getting on. As you know, my phobia was getting out of control and I was having to factor it in and plan my day around it. After just two hypnotherapy sessions, I feel more positive to be able to tackle it head on. In fact, I have been faced with a couple of very scary and daunting situations since that I have (bravely) faced and come away from unscathed! This has given me the confidence to carry on exposing myself to my phobia and whilst remembering to keep calm and repeating the mantra “nothing is going to happen”, I’ve been able to function properly for the first time ever! Thank you so much for helping me!!
I started visiting Margaret for hypnotherapy after months of suffering from extreme anxiety. I’d tried everything and this was my last resort. Being honest, I was very sceptical, but I was willing to give anything a go as I had no quality of life. Unbelievably after just 4 sessions I had none of my horrendous anxious symptoms, no panic attacks, my sleeping pattern had returned to almost normal. With Margaret’s hypnotherapy sessions, I’m delighted to say, I finally have my life back, I can’t recommend it highly enough! I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, Margaret makes you feel completely at ease. I’m now looking to go back for a bit of help with my weight loss!
Stress and Severe Anxiety
After an emotional roller coaster of a childhood, two failed marriages, my three children and fifteen grandchildren all emigrated, I had cancer and radiation treatment, father’s death, mother ill-treated in nursing home, passed away. Court case followed and so did ‘massive stress’. I was now on the verge of a breakdown. I tried to get counselling, my GP recommended a well qualified person who I visited and he listened to me, then said quote “that is a lot of stuff” and didn’t see me again. I found someone else, I talked to him, then received an email saying he was busy!
I carried on for a while but I could see that my moods and irrational behaviour was going to destroy my 25 years of marriage. I thought there must be someone who can help me put all this behind me and deal with it in a helpful way.
I found Margaret on the Internet, after my first visit where she took an overview of the things I needed help with I began to visit for hypnotherapy sessions of one hour each.
After an initial chat the therapy began in a comfortable chair. You remain aware of what is said as the therapy continues. I now know all the things I have mentioned happened and are a part of my life but they no longer torment me from morning till night, my moods are better and after one session regarding food I am now eating less, so now my eating is now normal.
I am a nurse who worked in a trauma centre, brought up my family alone, so I’m no push over in life, but sometimes we need help that we can’t do for ourselves. I highly recommend a visit to Margaret if you have an issue in life which is holding you back or causing unhappiness.
Pauline is happy to talk with prospective clients and give recommends for my therapy.
Extreme fear of Heights
I have been meaning to write to you for some time to thank you for your help in dealing with my phobias. Until I attended my first hypnotherapy session with you my life had been very limited by, what I now know were, irrational fears. I had tried to deal with the problems by reading various books – to no avail. I didn’t know what to really expect from my sessions with you. And to be honest I was rather sceptical about anything or anyone being able to help me – my fears were so entrenched. However, over the course of sessions I began to learn to relax more than I had ever done in my life. I think that the gentle reassurance of your voice enabled me to focus on the positive rather than the negative aspects of my life. My main fear was of heights. I would never have dreamt that I would ever go on a plane. But, as you know, I have actually now been on a flight. That would never have been possible without your help – a miracle or what? I think the miracle was meeting you.
I would not hesitate in recommending you or your therapy to anyone. And I will be forever grateful to. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
It will be 3 weeks tomorrow and the urge still hasn’t come back. The savings, as you can imagine, are mounting up fast – around £21 a day from smoking up to 60 a day to absolutely none after the session with you is really incredible. As you know I am approaching 65 and have smoked for most of my life. I gave up on a couple of occasions; once for about 7 years in the 90’s, but I found it impossible to stop this time, due to my personnel circumstance – even after going to my doctor’s Stop Smoking Clinic, trying patches, gum, etc., and latterly trying electric cigarettes.
Hypnotherapy was my last hope and I found it fairly easy, after only speaking to Margaret on the phone, to reduce my daily total. I smoked my last cigarette at 7.30am on the day of my appointment. I walk my dogs for an hour every day in the sand hills and can now climb to the steepest one which I wouldn’t have even tried three weeks ago. I’ve also suffered with Catarrh for months, probably years off and on, but now it’s totally gone. I have no idea how you have done it and do realise that I had to want to give up, which I did.
In the twenty-one days since he gave up smoking, Les has saved £441.00 and this saving is mounting up at a rate of £21 every day. Ten weeks later – I have now had another e mail from Les, he is still a very happy non-smoker.
Wish I had found you 35 years ago, I’d be around £50 000 richer!’ Much easier than with will power! Without the withdrawal symptoms! I was talked into trying hypnotism to give up smoking and didn’t really want to give up, now I have no desire to smoke and hate the smell of cigarettes! Incredible after just ONE session. Thanks Margaret.
Since February 2008, I have not had a cigarette! Hard to believe! Gave up for three years after pregnancy, then started again. Gave up for 18 months and tried patches but started again, after hypnotism I don’t WANT to start! When someone who has been smoking stands near, the smell is horrible! I think ‘did I really smell like that?’ Hypnotism has taken away the desire to smoke completely.
I decided to make an appointment with Margaret Houghton Hypnotherapy in July 2006 for help to quit smoking, I had tried several times to quit before, but with no success.
It is now more than ten years since my appointment to quit and I have never had another cigarette since that day.
A few weeks after my quit smoking session my wife and a friend also visited Margaret for help to quit smoking – they have both never smoked since having an appointment with Margaret.
Whenever I speak to anyone that tells me “they want to quit,” I give them Margaret’s phone number and say “this lady can you help you.” I now know numerous people that she has helped become non-smokers.
I thank you Margaret, for helping me to quit all those years ago.
Fear of Swimming
Here is my testimonial as promised. I am happy for you to use my name if you wish.
I would highly recommend Margaret Houghton Hypnotherapy. Margaret has completely cured my phobia of swimming after I lost my confidence after almost drowning 5 years ago. I found Margaret a friendly, supportive, honest and completely professional therapist. I felt 100% safe, comfortable and relaxed during my sessions. I had two sessions with Margaret and she recommended that I went to my local swimming pool. I went 2 days later and I swam 10 lengths of the pool with confidence and ease, something that I thought would never happen again! I am now looking forward to going down the water slides with my son. Thank you so much Margaret, you have truly improved the quality of my life.
It is now over a year since I came to see you about the chocolate addiction I had. Well I am pleased to tell you that I have not had any chocolate since I saw you and I don’t miss it at all!
Driving Test Nerves
Just wanted to thank you for getting me through my driving test. Still can’t believe I passed. Hypnosis had such a wonderful calming effect on me. Thank you so much
Fear of Flying
I had a fabulous holiday all thanks to you. I have now lost my fear of flying completely, my family couldn’t believe how calm I was!
Fear of Flying and Claustrophobia
Dear Margaret, Thank you for all your help.
I visited Margaret Houghton in order to see if she could help me with issues related to claustrophobia. Over a number of years these issues had become progressively worse and now affected my life in the following ways:
1. I couldn’t get in a lift.
2. I disliked small rooms particularly those with no windows.
3. I wouldn’t travel in the back seat of a three door car or in a minibus.
4. I wouldn’t travel in an aeroplane.
My family had organised a family trip to Germany and it looked as if I would be unable to join them as I wouldn’t travel in an aeroplane. Following a free consultation with Margaret I had three, hour long sessions, I felt positive, confident and able to join my family on the holiday. I experienced no problems whatsoever during flights to and from Germany and this now means that I will be able to undertake future holidays to destinations further afield.
Without Margaret’s help I simply wouldn’t have been able to board an aeroplane and I would certainly recommend anyone with a similar problem to pay her a visit.
