I visited The Green Room on a recommendation from a friend, I had no previous experience of hypnotherapy or other therapies available. The initial meeting to discuss my symptoms, I found to be very relaxed, friendly and most importantly, supportive. Cathy assured me that she would be able to offer me guidance, to assist myself in overcoming the chaos that was present at that time. A mutually agreeable date was sorted for my first session. Medication from my GP had just started at that time.
There had been no previous “Googling” on my part before attendance. Again, the meeting was as before and I was invited to make myself comfortable in the chair (blankets and drinking water also supplied). There were some “butterflies” in my stomach, but as Cathy started talking these were soon dispelled. Cathy was talking in a quiet, reassuring manner and I very quickly found myself responding, but I still was unsure. At one point she said “you may feel your arms are heavy now”, I vividly remember thinking, I can lift my arm fine………….no I couldn’t. That’s the point that I felt this was for me!
I left that session with more questions than I had on arrival, but within a few days I had a couple of very vivid dreams and found answers to some of those questions. Some of the techniques that Cathy introduced me to, also helped dramatically in helping me get to sleep better and a better night’s sleep.
A second session of hypnotherapy followed, with similar results and now I felt the benefit beginning, inasmuch that I felt better in myself.
A third session was attended, but I was extremely upset and didn’t feel it was right to do anything that day. Cathy however, said this is the best time to address the issue. As this was work related I couldn’t see the point, but from previous experience at The Green Room I felt confident to carry on. This session was based on EFT and all I can say is that for me, this helped me to deal with an issue I’d been dragging around for 8 years or so. That was brilliant, just brilliant.
I have used techniques from The Green Room to help me return to being a better individual and feeling so much better in myself. Work colleagues have said that I appear to have a “glow” about me now.
The medication is now being reduced, with a view to stopping soon.
I feel that I have amassed an armoury of tools to assist me in daily living now, all thanks to Cathy at The Green Room.
