Skype hypnotherapy worked for my interview anxiety
I needed Maria’s help to prepare for a professional job interview. I particularly needed assistance in managing anxiety relating to a presentation that I had to conduct as part of the interview process.
After a thorough consultation via Skype Maria recorded a personalized set of self-hypnosis instructions for me to listen to. These were extremely effective in helping me to contain and manage the fears I had. I also followed many of the techniques Maria taught me for creating calm and she provided me with a helpful booklet to keep and use as a reminder of the techniques I had learned.

On the day of the interview and presentation I was amazed at how calm and in control, I felt during what was quite a challenging process.
I start my new job at the end of September!

No more thumb-sucking!
I certainly never imagined it would take just two sessions on Skype and a couple of brief phone calls to crack this ingrained unwanted habit.

Ditching the thumb suckers habit for good!
I’d been trying to break my thumb sucking habit for almost 40 years since I was a small child. This seemingly harmless habit caused me constant cravings.
But it was extremely hard to give up. I had tried a range of approaches to quitting, including nail-biting fluid, counseling, and traditional hypnotherapy.
When I decided to try Maria’s approach, I was far from optimistic. I certainly never imagined it would take just two sessions on Skype and a couple of brief phone calls to crack this ingrained habit.
I found that cognitive hypnotherapy was a far more practical approach than anything I’d tried previously, drawing as it does on the latest findings of human behavioral psychology.
What worked for me
Instead of simply removing the thumb sucking, Maria gave me an ‘anchor’ that I could use to replace the habit whenever I felt the cravings. I could do this discreetly in meetings, on the train or in social situations, to help me manage each craving and then watch it fade away. Within a month or so I had stopped using the anchor too.
Maria followed up our sessions with practical support including email check-ups, self-hypnosis MP3 files that I could listen to at home.
I particularly appreciated Maria’s flexibility. As a working mum with young kids on the South Coast, getting to London for face-to-face meetings was almost impossible, so Maria suggested we try working through Skype and phone.
I wasn’t sure how this would affect the experience, but it didn’t lessen the impact in any way. The sessions had an immediate and far-reaching impact on me. Maria’s warmth and steady approach came across clearly and I felt completely reassured and involved.
I suppose the proof is in the pudding – I stopped sucking my thumb after the first session and nine months later I remain thumb free!
Thank you, Maria!
Thought Stopping worries
I worked with Maria on managing my levels of anxiety, in both social and professional situations. She gave me effective strategies to control anxiety and habitual worrying. I found the downloads she recorded for me extremely helpful in preparing for job interviews as well as achieving a state of calm before going to sleep.
