Maria, Poland – Weight & Self Esteem difficulties
I would without highly recommend Anne as an excellent Therapist regarding all symptoms with which you may be having problems with. The first time when I went to meet Anne, I didn’t realise with how may different problems I was struggling with and fighting on daily basis. I think took me about 3-4 sessions to fully understand my problems and when they started. When I was 7 yrs old I was living with my dad who was an alcoholic and my mum who had always suffered from deep depresion. She spent most of her time in a mental hospital and I had no one to talk to and felt so lonely. I had also been sexually abuse when I was 12 years old and since then I never ever realised I have a strong desire to control everything around me. My life was so complex but the funniest thing is I honestly thought my biggest problem was my weight.
Going through the Thrive programme with Anne my changed life totally and saved me from being a depressed unhappy young woman who had forgotten how to really laugh with my whole heart. I haved changed so much inside; I am much more stronger then I ever imagined I could be and I am proud of myself with all the things I have achieved even the little things, these are my victories. Thank you very much Anne xxxxxxxx
Jane, Ickenham – Weight Loss and Social Anxiety
I came to Anne as an emotional mess suffering with several symptoms including depression, anxiety and over-eating. My therapy sessions released a repression so deep within me I had no idea it was there and since that euphoric moment of release, my life has completely changed! A huge and upsetting issue for me before I began my therapy was that I could not lose weight. I would try, fail, gain more weight and the cycle would start again. Since I completed my therapy, I have been losing weight in a healthy way and my relationship with food (and alcohol) has completely changed… But that’s not all!! My relationship with my boyfriend has got so much stronger since I completed my therapy and we will be moving in together very soon. I used to be so fearful of confrontations, whereas now I welcome them. I’m not afraid of anyone’s words anymore. I am even studying for a career in a profession I have wanted since I was 16 but was too afraid to work for. Some parts of my life will take me a little longer to change but I’m working on them and enjoying the challenge… I’m no longer “putting up with” my life, I’m living it. I could never thank you enough Anne, you gave me my true self. I would recommend the therapy you offer 100 times over and wish you every success in the future.
Mo, South Ruislip – Hypnoband
I just wanted to let you know how glad I am to have found you after having had a constant battle with my weight throughout my life. I finally feel as if I am making progress with my Hypnoband which you have seen me through over 8 weeks. Who needs surgery when you can have someone like you to take me on this adventure to a new slimmer me.
To help along the way I am logging my journey in a wonderful little book which I found that says on the front “I’m going to be gorgeous and this is my plan…” and on the back cover it says”Don’t you just love it when a plan comes together”. You gave me pink golf ball to remind me of the size of my stomach and I have that in my handbag at all times. I am in my 10th week now and I have lost 19 pounds and dropped a dress size already so I couldn’t be happier. It will be a big day when I can say I am 12 stone and so many pounds and I haven’t said that for 33 years. Bring it on I say.
Thank you so much Anne I am so very grateful for your kind and gentle manner and you will be forever be that special lady who helped me get my life back and not to be that large women ever again.”
Charmain, Northwood- Hypnoband “It’s a Miracle!”
Just wanted to thank you! Its been roughly 7months since my Hypnoband.
I had the shock of my life only a couple of days ago… I saw some old photos which a friend had put on Facebook in 2009… all I can say is OMG!!!! Back then, not once did I ever think I was that big! I was clearly fooling myself, at 5’2″ & size 16/18, I was ‘Clinically Obese’ … which I never saw, due to years of being content in my long term relationship and over eating for the sake of it, no matter how much was on my plate, I would clear the lot!! Every year I would start a WeightWatchers mission, and every year it would last a maximum of 4weeks, then slowly, I would creep back to the downward spiral of gorging, each time putting the weight back on plus a couple of pounds for good measure…. at my heaviest i was nearly 12 STONE!!!!!
But thank god I came across you!!! 7 months post HypnoBand and I have lost and kept off 17lbs!!! I am very happy with myself and even though I have a few wobbly parts, they are fine and part of me … it is a miracle!! I am eternally thankful and am telling everyone about you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!
Lots of love, C”
