"Hello Margaret, this is just a wee update on my treatment. I had my implant on the 13th of April and the dental surgeon had a tricky time as I needed bone grafts to my jaw. He says that for someone with a significant gag reflex, I didn't gag at all!!! I went back two weeks later to have the stitches removed with no problems. I attend my Hamilton dentist in two weeks’ time and, if healed enough, I'll have impressions taken but it may take longer for my gum to heal - that will be the big test!!! I should also add that I don't feel so anxious when doing things - meeting up with a friend and her granddaughter or any other outing. I just feel excited, not anxious. Thank you for your help with these things and I'll not be worried about the impression!! Grateful thanks."
"After years of suffering from anxiety, I feel as though a great weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I can now do things I never dreamt were possible and I start working again next week. My heartfelt thanks Margaret for giving me my life back, I will always be grateful."
"Hi Margaret, three months on and I am continuing to lose weight, slowly and easily. I feel like a ‘new me’, already buying new clothes and having the confidence to go into shops that I have not visited for years! The coming along and having the virtual gastric band fitted has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. Thank you."
"I was always very sceptical about the idea of hypnosis but after just two sessions with Margaret I was able to conquer a lifelong phobia I had for wasps and spiders. She has a great gift for making you feel both incredibly safe and brave at the same time and although it might seem trivial to some people I now feel really good about myself."
“Hi Margaret, I just wanted to let you know that I’ve just had a very successful journey to London. The train was delayed and the journey took a lot longer than I expected with lots of stopping. I could have gone into panic mode but I took a few deep breaths and tried to look at things differently and arrived safely. Due to the delay I arrived in London during rush hour and there were hoards of people at Euston, again I took more deep breaths and I was okay. The journey home was a breeze and although it started badly I’m looking forward to my next trip. Hopefully I’ll be flying soon!”
“For much of my adult life I have struggled with trying to keep my weight at a healthy level. I would manage to lose weight but then it would creep on again and usually there would be few extra pounds to deal with. For me it wasn't losing the weight that was a real problem it was being able to keep it off and make choices that would enable me to feel totally in control of my thoughts and actions around food. Whatever I tried nothing seemed to work so I decided to try hypnotherapy. Margaret puts you at ease instantly and creates a safe environment where you feel that you can develop your thoughts. Since the day I started my sessions with her I can honestly say I feel more in control than I have ever felt in my adult life. I now have the confidence that I will not only make the right choices about food but in other areas of my life. The understanding as to why we overeat and the emotional attachment to food that I had has clarified so much in my mind and I now know I have the strategies to deal with any situation. I have already lost over three stone and with the new understanding I have been given I know I will reach my goal and be able to stick to it. I feel a great sense of empowerment and I would not hesitate to see Margaret again if I felt the need. I am truly grateful for her help.”
“Hi Margaret, just writing you a quick Email to say thank you very much! It has been 6 weeks without a cigarette now and it’s all down to you as I couldn’t have done it without your help and expertise. I won’t say that it’s been easy, but it certainly hasn’t been as difficult as I thought it would be. The first week was quite strange as I kept having the urge to go outside, it wasn’t a craving, just an urge (habit I suppose), but the urge got less and less as the days went by and the thought of having a cigarette has gone from every hour or so to once or twice a day now. The really great thing is that I can now sit outside with my husband while he has a cigarette and it doesn’t seem to affect me like I thought it would. Going from 25 years of smoking 20 a day to none, I never thought that I would have been able to do it. Thanks again!”
“I went to Margaret for help in getting to sleep as I had tried EVERYTHING else!! Not only am I sleeping better but have realised lots of new things about myself and others, good and bad!! I have now learnt to relax more despite my hectic lifestyle which is a novelty for me. Margaret has made a huge difference in the way I now think about things. I would happily recommend her to anyone.”
“Margaret made me feel very comfortable about talking about the thoughts which were stopping me from being happy. She enabled me to see that I am in charge of my thoughts and I am now able to make positive changes which have made my life more balanced. Margaret taught me techniques which allow me to take charge when negative thoughts try to take over which have improved my confidence and happiness. My sessions with Margaret were great and each time I left I felt relaxed and positive about the future. I now feel that I able to remain calm and in control and I enjoy my life far more than I did prior to meeting Margaret.”
“Thank you for helping me overcome my fear of flying. I’ve just had had a wonderful time in New York, not a restful holiday I have to say, but the great thing was at the airport I did not feel nervous and the flight went well. We did hit some turbulence just before we were due to land and that was the only time I felt bad but it soon passed. On the flight home I even managed to fall asleep, something I have never, ever done on a plane!”
"What sets Margaret apart from other hypnotist's is that she listens to what it is you want to achieve and then begins to dig deep to understand the route of the problem rather than automatically blaming it on childhood experiences, which I have found other hypnotist's do. I find Margaret to be extremely engaging with a likable and calming nature. She has a way of making you feel at complete ease even when you are talking about a difficult subject. Most importantly Margaret has delivered and for me that is the icing on the cake!"
