What my clients are saying…

Testimonials, this is just a small sample of what my clients are saying about their experience with me.

I was recommended Cathy by my brother having battled with anxiety and panic attacks on and off for nearly 20 yrs. After trying another hypnotherapist for help with anxiety and hating it I was sceptical!
She has been amazing! With her guidance I have managed to realise all the factors that triggered my anxiety, make peace with them and heal.
She continues to help and support me and my brother, and now my mum and I don’t know where I’d be without her. Her ability to really listen, take on board what you say and then turn it on it’s head so you look at it in a different way is brilliant!
She has also opened up a whole new chapter of my life that I didn’t even know existed and I am now qualified in Reiki level 2, attending meditation classes, and absolutely loving it!
I have recommended Cathy to many people and she has had a positive impact on every single one of their lives. This lady is truly wonderful. Cathy, there aren’t the right words, but thank you, so so much, for everything you’ve done for me and mine and everything you will do for us in the future.

Q's Story

I came to see Cathy feeling very muddled, anxious, confused and blaming myself for not being able to manage what was happening in my life. Instantly I felt a connection with Cathy and felt at ease. Through only a few sessions, I was able to understand the impact of the layers of my past and how they affect my present and future self. The sessions were led by what I needed and it has been an emotional but supported, and brilliant journey – which is still ongoing. The skills given through the sessions have enabled me to manage situations in the here and now, which was something that I would have previously found completely overwhelming. It opened my eyes to what power the mind has and how it can be healed. The support that is there when I need it, is second to none and I have and will continue to recommend this amazing lady to my friends and family.

If you allow yourself to relax, take a breath, believe – then you are already half way there.

S's Story
Every minute I spend with Cathy at The Green Room is so precious.  I am beginning to understand more about myself – why I think those things, why I do those things, why I feel that way and its made me look at my life in a more positive way.  Dealing with lots of baggage/issues that have been hanging around in the back of my head has made me feel more comfortable and relaxed within myself.  Cathy has tailored each of our sessions depending on what we are looking to move forward on. The Reiki, EFT, Hypnosis & Future Life Progression sessions I’ve had with her are professionally tailored to my needs in a very relaxed, calm environment.
I can highly recommend Cathy, and the sessions and training she provides at The Green Room.
J's Story

I came to Cathy for help when my teenager developed a crushing anxiety disorder. Gently, patiently, kindly, she guided my child through the dark and empowered her to overcome her challenges. Most important of all, my child felt relaxed the minute she walked into the Green Room. I cannot recommend Cathy highly enough and will never forget what she’s done to help our family. Thank you, Cathy, from the bottom of my heart.

G's Story

I first visited the Green Room in May 2015 as the combination of running my own stressful business whilst looking after my family and trying to maintain a relationship meant that I had got to the point where I felt that I I could no longer cope with daily life and was at breaking point. I was sceptical of hypnotherapy at first but after just one session Cathy helped me to realise the underlying cause of my anxiety and distress.
Over the following months Cathy helped me on an incredible journey firstly back to ensure I dealt with all issues and guilt that I had been carrying for years. In
later sessions we concentrated more on the present and setting goals and focausing on the future. Along with all her other special expertise Cathy has an astounding insight and ability to assist you to realise for yoursellf the life changes that you need to make to lead a happier fulfilled life.
Even now almost 3 years since I first visited Cathy I still refer to my treatments and in January this year achieved one of the goals that we set. So thank you Cathy for your amazing kindness, patience and quidance one fabulous talented lady x

Z's Story

A big thank you to Cathy from the green room. She helped me through a difficult time with kindness and compassion. She was able to use all her expert knowledge of hypnotherapy and EFT to guide me through my difficulties. She was able to understand how I felt and what I needed when I didn’t know myself. She is an amazing person and I would recommend her to anyone.

P's Story

I first came to the green in early 2015 after previously seeing several other counsellors whilst growing up, the usual apprehension and nerves gradually mounting on the journey to the green room. These were laid to rest instantly on meeting Cathy and walking into the green room. Whilst working with Cathy I have always felt fully supported and cared for and never isolated. I completely trust her and know I wouldn’t have made the progress I have made with anyone else. Never before have I met someone who can help me verbalise my emotions so concisely and honestly, without judgement or criticism. Cathy is simply one of those people who makes you feel at ease straight away, one of the good guys in life and I am truly blessed to have found her and could not recommend her enough.
Simply put I love Cathy and owe her so much. She really did catch me when I was falling and provided me with the safe space to work through issues I have held onto for a long time.
So my love we’ve had tears laughter snot swearing and even a fire but we made it and I couldn’t have done it without you

Y's Story

Cathy you do such wonderful work and everyone who comes in contact with you are so lucky.  Thank you for the help you have given **** , ***** and myself. I have become so much more confident since my last visit. Also things I have carried for thirty odd years have gone.
Yesterday at my heart meeting the nurses were asking me how scores on my mental health have changed from a 10 to a 0.  So I said.  I have been doing meditation and Reiki, they asked where I did have to tell them. The Green Room Therapy .  Two of the nurses are going to look you up.Thank you xxx

G's Story

Thank you so much for carrying me through the healing process of my inner child. I have now made peace with my difficult childhood – incredibly you knew exactly when it was still needing addressing and when it was time for me to let go of the old labels – and I have now found a peace of mind I never imagined I could reach. It’s great that you are also helping my husband with his current issues. I am especially grateful on behalf of my son who will now grow up with a mum who instead of being constantly distracted by crippling insecurities can be fully present to him and his needs. Hopefully thanks to your work with his parents, our son will be so well adjusted, he will never have the need for therapeutic work!

D's Story

I had not attended any kind of therapy before but the moment that I spoke to Cathy she put me at ease. I have attended Hypnotherapy and Meditation Classes something that a year ago I never thought I would say.
Cathy has opened my mind to these therapies. I have met a lovely group of people at beginners meditation classes and will continue with this journey. Thank you Cathy for your expertise, help and support. I would recommend anyone who needs help at a crossroads in their life to contact Cathy.

K's Story

‘I already feel that I am looking at things differently and changing the way that I react or respond to certain situations. At some point, I would like to come and see you to try a Reiki session but I will see how I get on over the next few weeks and let you know. Thank you so much for all your help and guidance and helping me to see things differently. I don’t think I could have done it without you!

N's Story,

I had an amazing and revealing EFT and hypnotherapy treatment in the wonderful green room to help me overcome my phobia of flying. Cathy was very lovely and made me feel completely comfortable, even though I had no idea what to expect I trusted her. The results were almost instant! I felt different and much less apprehensive and anxious over the areas of my fear. I understood where my phobia came from and it was almost as if my thoughts had been rewired. I’m certain that I will be able to be able to live my life from now on more positively without this fear ruling my life. I am about to start a course of meditation training with Cathy in the areas of stress and anxiety and I cannot wait to learn more from this amazing lady! Highly recommended!!

T's Story

No words will ever be strong enough to explain how special and wonderful Cathy has been to me. I first met Cathy about 3 months ago, when a family friend had highly recommended her to me. I found myself in a hole which I could not get out of. All my friends and family would all describe me as the happiest person they knew, however over the last 6 months I had found myself spiraling downhill. My smile was always fake, I was constantly tired and wanting to be alone, I saw no way out…. Then Cathy entered my life.
On my first visit to The Green Room I was extremely nervous and barley said 2 words, Cathy made me feel so welcome and relaxed, it was the beginning of my journey. Cathy took care of me and helped me through my healing process, she found my smile, and she found me!
We started with little words then came the tears, but towards the end of my journey we had laughter, real laughter, real smile and lots of ‘Glitter’! I will never forget my experience and will remember some of the special words Cathy said to me in many life experiences to come. I highly recommend Cathy to anyone who needs a boost in life or has found themselves to be a little lost, she gave me confidence and my life back.
Thank-you Cathy for all you have done for me and my family. Everyone can see what you have done for me, even those who still to this day have no idea about you.
Much love always. xxx

K's Story

If anyone is suffering from anxiety I would definately recommend hypnotherapy. I just wish it was prescribed on the NHS as it has changed my life and if only more people were aware of the benefits it would change their lives to.
I felt better after just one session. I had been suffering for a long time and had been offered antidepressants which I feel just cover up the problem without solving it. Determined that I didn’t want to take medication, I booked an appointment to see Cathy. I was really nervous as I had never tried hypnotherapy before and I didn’t know anything about, but it has given me my life back. It has taught me where my anxiety started from and techniques on how to cope with it. Cathy really put me at ease and made me feel like I had a friend that was there for me and who understood how I was feeling. I can’t thank her enough !

L's Story

I first met Cathy at her wonderful beginners meditation course and when I found out that meditation was only one string of many to her bow, I decided to go and see her for help with a few issues. We used a mixture of EFT and hypnotherapy to help me overcome a traumatic experience from my past. I had dealt with much of this experience already but for some reason I had been unable to shake off this part for the last 25 years. After just one session I can honestly say it no longer bothers me and I feel like a massive weight has been lifted from my shoulders which is an incredible feeling.

I’ve also had trouble sleeping for many years but, after using a nightly hypnotherapy download that Cathy prepared for me, I am finally sleeping without prescribed medication which I feel is a minor miracle!

After all of Cathy’s success with my past experiences I felt that the natural next step would be to try Future Life Progression. It was an extremely powerful experience for me and produced some unexpected results. It’s a life I am very much looking forward to living. One thing I found most helpful was that my future self was able to give me some advice on how to help myself along the way and I am already being able to put some of these ideas into action. It’s given me more focus which I’m finding exciting and invigorating. It feels as if the stress of the future has been lifted from my shoulders which is an extremely liberating feeling.

Cathy is a wonderful human being and immediately makes you feel at home and special, like you’re the only person she’s helping. I never want to leave her cosy treatment room at the end of my sessions. I have had many different treatments over the years but I have never felt that they have been so tailored specifically for me. She really listens to what you say and changes things according to your needs. Nothing is too much trouble for her and she always finds time to answer any queries you might have between sessions. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

J's Story

Deciding to do a FLP session with Cathy is one of the best decision I’ve made. Knowing Cathy beforehand (meditation classes) I went into the session with quite high expectations. To say it lived up to my expectations would be an understatement and just doesn’t do her work justice. Being able to see your own future, where you are heading and what parts of your life you should focus on is quite a strange experience but at the same time it just feels right. After spending time to reflect on the session and the results I got its almost as if I knew beforehand but these answers were buried by the noise of everyday life. Now knowing what aspects of my life to focus on for the first time in a while I finally feel at peace. To anyone debating whether to try this or not I highly recommend it.

L's Story

I started seeing Cathy 4 weeks ago when my anxiety had hit rock bottom again! I had been through CBT and counselling but none of this seemed to give my anxiety a rest. 4 weeks on I feel like a changed woman. I feel confident, energised and ready to take on the world! I do not understand why the NHS spend so much money on CBT and counselling when hypnotherapy does such a fantastic job! The transformation in my wellbeing is amazing and I only have Cathy to thank for that!

G's Story

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.
