14 months continuing Smoke-Free!
Well, it is one year and two weeks since my last session with you and you will be pleased to hear that I am now a confirmed non-smoker. Thank you very much for our sessions together. When I think back to over 60 years of the smoking habit, I did not think it possible to break the tie after all of those years – but we did!!!!!
Once again, thank you for getting me into the right frame of mind to quit smoking.

Successfully helping me overcome doubts and enjoy my life.
I needed a personal solution to bring back my motivation and to start believing more in my capabilities. To feel comfortable with the uncertainty of running my own business and stop the panic rising in certain situations. I also wanted to explore new things in getting my personal emotional needs met.
Since doing sessions with Maria, including the techniques I learned, when I look back at my life now it seems like everything was there for a reason. I can take the positive out of everything. I was also more sheltered and kept to myself. The difference now is I feel more outgoing and more relaxed.
And there are little things I’ve been doing, like seeing more of the positive in everything even in stressful situations. I feel happy and that I can overcome obstacles concerning my business, and I feel a lot better about myself.
I’m starting to do things I’ve never done before – like going to yoga.

How I stopped smoking
What made the difference for this client to quit smoking?
At the start of the hypnotherapy sessions, I suffered a little trepidation after 60 odd years smoking. However, Maria had a calming and positive nature and gradually I too became positive.
After our first meeting, I started to cut down smoking by myself. The second session left me feeling sure of myself and that I would successfully stop smoking.
Although I still get the feeling, on some days, that I would like a cigarette, it is getting less and less.
I am confident that I have now given up the smoking habit, even though there have been a few personal problems that could have triggered a re-start.
If anyone is thinking of using this method to give up smoking, I spent a number of weeks getting my mind in gear first then contacted Maria. It worked for me after over 60 years – it could work for you too.
Thanks again Maria

Helping me resolve heightened feelings; fears of health & safety
I’ve really appreciated and benefited from Maria’s working style. Not only is she highly professional and knowledgeable, but her sense of personality is very engaging, helping me shed light on my metal distortions and in some instances, laugh them away!

Tackling how I experienced my generalised anxieties
” I’ve seen a lot of therapists, different types, and I’ve never had such a positive tailored experience as I’ve had through working with Maria “
Jane B Essex
I am an ex-smoker – now free.
“I stopped thinking about cigarettes my thoughts were more about what I needed to do in my day. I didn’t actually want a cigarette, I realized I got no pleasure at all.
I said to my husband (who smokes), go and see Maria.”
On Self confidence:
I have found that our sessions have really helped with my anxiety and general self-confidence. I thought it would be difficult to find a single technique that works but you found me several. It was always easy, to be honest, and talk with you.
Thank you for helping me gain confidence and I will use what you have taught me for life. Thank you!
(Looking back I was) : A little relieved that I’d taken the first step. Kind of excited about trying out the new techniques and being able to talk about it for the first time where I knew someone would actually be able to help begin to quash the anxiety. Before, people were doing their best to comfort but couldn’t actually do anything to help.
Brief therapy has been good for me
Questions out to one client about the duration of her therapy:
- How many sessions did you have?
- Did you feel listened to and understood?
“I’ve had 6 sessions and have booked 2 more as follow up. Yes, I did feel listened to and understood and it showed during the recordings I had to listen to before bed.”

Travel sickness and other anxieties abated
I wanted help with my general anxiety (and fear of travel sickness), which affected most aspects of my life. I got in touch straight away and received a lovely, reassuring response. I had been to a therapist previously but had not found talking through my problems that helpful.
As I was going to see Maria about my anxiety, I was naturally rather anxious about what the treatment would involve. Maria made me feel relaxed and reassured.
This type of cognitive hypnotherapy felt completely different as I was taught different ways of coping with my anxiety and given tools which I will be able to carry on using for as long as I need them.
I have had four sessions and I am already feeling so much better. The changes are gradual so you almost don’t notice them at first but my confidence has improved every day. Maria has been so encouraging and so happy for me as I have started to feel better.

…proud of what I have achieved and that is a great feeling. Thanks, Maria!
