What our customers are saying
Events surrounding my dearly-loved Dad’s death brought a lifetime of emotional abuse to a head. Completely wrung out, within weeks, I tested positively with Covid, and was subsequently diagnosed with Long Covid.
Zoom notwithstanding, with her warmth and calm, sensible approach, Clare swiftly grasped my situation, unpicked it and rebuilt me. Early on, I finally had a sense of permission to acknowledge and believe that certain relationships were unacceptable, that I hadn’t been cared for, nor respected as I should be. Without doubt, I feel stronger and equipped to begin to manage and enjoy life from now on. I thank Clare most sincerely for her help.

I have had several sessions of relaxation therapy over the last year or so latterly incorporating some more specific work as I was due to have a cataract operation which frankly terrified me. My fear was based on the fact that the procedure was to be carried out whilst fully awake and aware. The sessions with Clare helped me enormously. I found myself not worrying about it constantly and could actually put it from my mind on occasions. I also felt much calmer when the procedure was being carried out.
I have also had a couple of healthy eating scripts provided, the first just before Christmas in the hope of staving off the desire to eat so much chocolate and crisps over the festive period and I am pleased to say it worked. I had a follow up script provided in the new year to reinforce the healthy eating pattern and so far, it has been a success.
I can certainly recommend Clare and her services without reservation."
"I have had 2 different sorts of treatment from Clare.
The first was a course of treatment for general as well as social anxiety and I did find that this helped me feel much less self-conscious and boosted my confidence at work which was great. I could also calm myself when starting to feel anxious which made me feel a lot more in control.
The second single treatment was to overcome my fear of the dentist as I was having a wisdom tooth removed and was terrified. I could not stand the smell or bare to hear the sound of the drill and had always struggled but I was particularly concerned about this removal as was the dentist who was treating me because of my radical reactions previously. Clare showed me how to hypnotise myself to make my face feel numb and to help with pain management and because I was more relaxed the bleeding was not as severe nor was my face as bruised following the extraction. Afterwards I was also aware that I had not noticed the usual sounds and smells around me during the procedure.
I would definitely recommend her as a hypnotherapist."

"I had a course of treatment from Clare for stress, specifically stress in the work place as well as the stresses of balancing home and work life.
I was a little apprehensive at first because I did not really have any idea what to expect. I was really happy with the relaxation aspect of the therapy and found that my stress levels did decrease at work and I was able to deal with situations in a calmer manner and not avoid situations that would often cause me concern
Overall, I enjoyed the experience and found it did help me. I would definitely have further treatment should I need it."

"Clare helped change my life for the better. I was suffering with work related stress and 8 sessions of talking therapy combined with hypnotherapy really helped me out of a very low place. Thank you Clare. Highly recommended."

I had 8 sessions with Claire to treat my anxiety and depression. I found Claire easy to talk to and the sessions really helped. I would recommend Claire to anyone who is wanting help with anxiety and depression.

I can't really find the words to express just how much Clare helped and supported me over the last 3 months. I had counselling with Clare due to a close family bereavement. The sessions coincided with the Corona Virus lockdown and the stress of home-schooling. I have not previously had counselling so I did not really know what to expect. Sessions took place over Zoom which worked really well. When talking to Clare she immediately put me at ease and I found each session felt very relaxed and constructive. The sessions were a mix of talking therapy and hypnotherapy both of which I found extremely useful. I found the hypnotherapy really enjoyable. Clare was realistic and always positive and I felt that she was really interested in me and helping me through. Clare provided me with tools to use going forward after our sessions, to help keep anxiety and stress levels under control. This review doesn't do justice to how beneficial and helpful Clare's counselling was and I would highly recommend Clare.

I would like to confirm before I was advised to get sessions from Clare. I was at rock bottom. My mental health was really bad. My anxiety and depression had been at an all time low and i had tried everything. However after 8 sessions with Clare and going through counseling and hypnotherapy. I have seen a massive difference in my mental health and how I can control my thinking. The hypnotherapy help me relax and keep calm. I have to say she is absolutely brilliant. Clare is Down to earth easy to chat to and patient, she makes you feel relaxed and is easy to talk to.. She showed me she cared and wanted to help, that's what I needed to go over things at my pace and get some results. I can not thank her enough for helping me over this difficult time. I have already recommended Clare To my friends and they are now receiving treatment from her . Thank you so much Clare.keep up with making a difference in people's lives.

I received counselling and therapy from Clare after the death of both my parents within 3 months during the Coronavirus lockdown, combined with a breakup with my partner in between deaths and her subsequent attempted suicide. Counselling consisted of eight 2 hour sessions with half an hour hypnotherapy within each session, provided through my work. From feeling suicidal, bereft of hope with extreme anxiety and depression at the beginning of therapy, in combination with medication, I can say that i feel so much more able to cope with life, and genuinely positive. Clare was friendly, insightful, and understanding, and it truly was a safe space to talk about anything. I would definitely recommend Clare as a therapist, and I am very grateful for her help, support, and guidance in the midst of what was an extremely challenging time in my life.

"Clare was friendly, helpful and kind, highly recommended, really helped me more forward and have a much more positive outlook with everything. Thank you!
Jade Joyce - London (Google Business review )
I received 6 sessions of talking therapy, provided through my work, which included half an hour hypnotherapy each session. I was suffering from severe health anxiety, triggered by the sudden death of my Dad during the Covid 19 pandemic.
Clare was friendly and put me at ease straightaway so I was able to express my feelings. I really looked forward to each session and felt very relaxed after the hypnotherapy session.
With Clare's help and medication I have the tools to be able to navigate life in a much more positive and calmer way.
I would highly recommend Clare as a therapist and thank her for all her support and guidance, through a very difficult time.
Susan - Blackpool
Wow what an experience, in just 8 weeks I have come along leaps and bounds and truly believe I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for Clare. I was sceptical and convinced that nothing would get me out of the place I was before our sessions but now I would highly recommend Clare to anyone who has something they need to work through. My pain has reduced by half and my tremors a thing of the past! My ability to execute everyday tasks like food shopping with confidence since my stroke in September 2020 just came so naturally... My mental health and drive for the future is back in 5th gear... bring on 2021 xx and thank you :-)
