Confidence and Self Esteem


Low self confidence and anxiety/anger in a 9 year old

"Annie put us at ease from the start and offered a transparent service to help our 9 year-old find his way through an emotionally turbulent patch via the books Ollie and his Superpowers and Ollie and the Golden Stripe. She also provided us with therapeutic recordings to play as our son went to sleep. Our son responded well to therapy and seemed to enjoy his sessions with Annie which were conducted via Zoom during quarantine. We saw noticeable improvements within weeks. With her background as a nurse and having worked extensively with children, Annie was also able to reassure us that some of the behaviours we were unsure about were in fact the normal signs of a pre-teen child! This put our minds at rest; the key issue seems to have been resolved and we now need to remember that our son's needs are going to change a lot over years ahead. Wish us luck for living with a teenager!"

Addiction and low self confidence/self belief

"The best decision I ever made was to come to Annie for help with my struggles. Annie has transformed my life in every positive way possible. She is kind, patient, supportive and gets right to the problem! Her techniques are extremely effective and she was able to rid me of an addiction I had suffered from for years and saw no way out of. I am now on a successful career path, addiction free and loving life! Annie succeeded where other mental health professionals failed and I will forever be grateful to have met her. I can definitely say her hypnotherapy works, thank you Annie!"

Restoring badly shaken confidence - Helping a pensioner to live a normal life again.

"After reading many of Annie's articles in the Village Connection magazine, I finally plucked up the courage to ring her to enquire about sessions and prices. I immediately felt she was somebody I could talk to and during my first session I found I had no difficulty in telling her about the two issues which were troubling me and which I was needing help with.

One was long term - approximately 5 years - and the other more recent 18 months. The first issue was an irrational fear of travelling by train - particularly into London, the second was much more rational - fear of falling. I'd fallen or slipped twice in the space of 9 months, my confidence levels had dropped and every shiny surface or bumpy piece of ground seemed to spell disaster.

I had boots and shoes re-heeled and re-soled to make them non-slip as I was terrified of falling and fracturing more bones - 4 fractured from one fall was more than enough!

After 8 sessions with Annie I've been to London and even purchased a senior citizens rail card. I'm able to walk along the paths where I had my falls and have at last felt able towear the shoes I was wearing when I slipped over in October 2013!

My confidence has gradually returned and at last I can lead a normal life again! If I feel hesitant about something I simply listen to one of the CDs Annie made for me and then I am able to cope. My visits to Annie were certainly money well spent."

Managing low self esteem

"Annie was brilliant. I was really nervous about being hypnotised, but she put me at my ease and made it really easy. She has truly helped me to learn to like myself and accept my past, even though I believed I was a lost cause. I would thoroughly recommend her."

Dealing with Childhood Abuse

"I went to see Annie as l have suffered for the past 43 years with fears and great emotional distress due to being abused as a child and into my early adult life. I cannot thank Annie enough she has given me peace and l am finally comfortable in my life. Her professionalism and calming personality is very reassuring and made me feel so very reassured and welcome."

Not every client does write in, some prefer to just move on from their issue, and I'm fine with that too - What matters to me is that every client feels their issue is resolved.
