The effect

Liza writes:

"Over the last few years, my husband and I had lost our family business, resulting in several house moves, job re-training and severe financial pressure. Added to this I took on a stressful and demanding job. Although I had tried other ways to help the situation, i.e. going part-time, using relaxation techniques, positive affirmations and so on, none of these stopped the panic attacks or reduced the severity of them. Other than medication, the medical profession could offer little else to help me. I had reached the point where I feared I would never be free of them and felt very low. As so many things had gone wrong, I felt “thwarted” by life and was demotivated, this resulted in an unhealthy lifestyle. I ached all over, most of the time, especially in my knees and ankles."

 

Solution

Liza had heard about NLP but was not sure if it could help her. Although she was anxious Stuart made her feel comfortable immediately. He was understanding, non-judgemental and thoroughly professional. He started with a history of Liza's childhood and recent problems to established exactly what she wanted to change. Stuart devised a programmed combining a number of techniques and therapies, including Parts Integration Therapy, Time-Line Therapy and NLP.

Overall the sessions lasted for about one and a half days and were fascinating, emotional, at times tiring and sometimes humorous .

 

Result

Liza writes

"After the sessions I felt immediately more relaxed and over a period of about a week many of my aches and pains localised and then disappeared. I feel much brighter, more optimistic and am more content and enjoying life more. I am now taking better care of myself and have implemented significant health changes. Since the treatment, the panic attacks have dramatically reduced, and are getting less frequent. Thanks to Stuart’s insights am able to respond differently when I feel the warning signs. Since the sessions, I have not had a proper attack and feel confident that I can look to a future where panic attacks are a distant memory."
