Testimonials – Hypnotherapy

“The healer in me needed healing. As a mental health professional, it’s hard to find someone who can hold the space to allow the inner healer within to shine through. After having a personal session with Julie Poole, I would highly recommend her. Her pure, loving energy and spirit can help you move through the darkest, most painful parts of yourself that need healing. Such a beautiful soul with a gift to share with the world. Love you soul sister! 💫I can’t thank you enough” ACT, December 2017.

“Julie has been a fantastic source of support to me for almost 18 months. Her gentle and encouraging approach helps me to feel that I can share personal details with her without fear of judgment, but she is also great at giving guidance. Something I particularly appreciate about her is that she takes careful note of the experiences and feelings that I share with her, so that she is able to reference these with me when I need reminders of my progress or my patterns of thinking and behaviour. She has a great balance between practical, expert guidance, empathic listening and effective hypnotherapy sessions. She knows a lot about recovery from childhood trauma in particular, and her expertise in this area has meant that I have made considerable gains in improving my personal relationships and self-esteem.” MF.

“I’ve had CFS/ME for 5 years and became so intolerant to various foods that I was down to eating 9 foods by the end of last year. I was getting nowhere with conventional medicine and now struggling to tolerate nutritional supplements and healthy foods, then Julie was recommended to me by someone who had experienced similar problems. Within weeks of having sessions with Julie my energy levels improved dramatically as did my symptoms of brain fog. I am now a few months into sessions and I have been able to more than double the amount of foods I can eat. I have gone from being mostly housebound to going out at least once or twice a week. I can also walk around my garden regularly, hang out washing several time a week – I hadn’t been able to do these things since a relapse I had 2 years previously. I have managed to start gentle yoga and now manage 40 minutes of yoga a day. My food intolerance symptoms could leave me almost bedbound they were, at times, so severe. I no longer get symptoms of this severity, no more headaches, no more feeling poisoned/hungover and no more increased fatigue levels after eating problem foods. If I do add a food back in which my body can’t handle yet I have mostly mild symptoms, this in itself is a vast improvement. I am also at a point now that I am not so restricted or so fatigued that I have been able to go out for meals with friends and family. In addition to the improvements in my health condition and intolerance problems, I feel much more motivated, confident, strong, focused and have somehow through these sessions developed a different way of looking at life and how I plan to live the rest of it. I feel like I have had my eyes opened and whole lot of mental blocks, which I didn’t know I had, have now been lifted and that the world is my oyster and there are a plethora of opportunities just waiting for me to grasp – things I never thought possible before, even before the onset of CFS/ME. I’m not sure how else to explain that last part, it may sound airy fairy and it has been an unexpected part of treatment for me but has really changed my whole perspective. Julie is extremely approachable and down to earth. I have undergone sessions via skype and initially wasn’t sure if that may not be as effective as face to face but it has certainly worked for me. I cant recommend Julie and hypnotherapy enough. It has been instrumental in getting me well on the path to recovery.” GF. 22.09.17

“Hi Julie I first came to see you when I was having chronic migraines and was in a very stressed state with low self esteem. From the moment I met you I knew it was the right fit. I had several sessions of counselling and hypnotherapy with you. The sessions felt safe, calm and relaxing, without any feeling of being rushed. I came away from every session feeling refreshed and a little more like the old me. I was sad when you moved away from my area! However our paths crossed again a little over a year later following the birth of my Son, when I had a session with you online using Skype. The birth had been traumatic for me and I was experiencing flashbacks and insomnia. My baby was three weeks old and I had just been in hospital for a week with severe mastitis. Being self employed I was also putting a great deal of pressure on myself to return to work ASAP. I was struggling to cope with the sudden whirlwind of motherhood and felt completely unable to soothe my baby from crying (not surprising considering the nervous energy I must have been giving off!) I don’t recall ever feeling so low in my life, and the only suggestion the GP had was medication. I knew that wasn’t for me, and Mark suggested hypnotherapy again. I went to a local hypnotherapist but I didn’t feel relaxed with her at all. She put on a strange voice and didn’t seem authentic like you do. I left feeling even worse and felt so lost. Mark suggested I have a session with you via skype. I was dubious as I didn’t think it would be as effective through a screen. But the moment I started talking to you it was like you just got it. I felt listened to and understood. The hypnotherapy completely relaxed me and from that moment on I was able to sleep! In the morning I felt renewed and began to bond with my son and from that day everything has just gotten better and better. I am totally in love with my little boy who is six months old already and we have an incredibly deep bond. We sleep like logs snuggled up in bed together. I can’t remember the last time I had a migraine. I don’t know how it would have all turned out if you hadn’t helped me find my strength that day. So thank you very very much xxx” – Mrs H. – November 2015

“I had suffered with anxiety and panic attacks for over ten years. Having tried everything else I went to Julie hoping she could help. After only 3 sessions, I can honestly say that my panic attacks have gone and I feel a stronger, happier person. Julie is very comforting and makes you feel at ease straight away. My life has been changed for the better and this is down to Julie. I cannot thank her enough, I would recommend anyone suffering like I did to speak to Julie, I am confident she can help you too !” Miss .R.R – Jan 2014

“I went to see Julie, during a particularly, anxious fraught and difficult time in my relationship with my daughter, I arrived feeling very anxious, stressed and upset, emotionally drained in fact. My session with Julie helped me to gain a sense of perspective, to be objective, stand back and see the situation from both sides. I left feeling much more positive, I now have the tools to remain calm, in control of my emotions , in a very positive, optimistic and forward thinking manner. This has enabled me to look forward to the future with an inner strength and resolve and peace of mind.” C – Jan 2012

“My problem was low self esteem, I was brought up by a over protective mother. I was never allowed to stand on my own two feet and was constantly bullied, my school time was terrible, also my time after school and then it effected my working life. I had had enough, so I decided to look into Hypnosis. I found Julie Poole’s website online and called and made an appointment. I was quite anxious meeting somene I didn’t know but Julie put me at ease very quickly. If your wondering is it worth the money or does it really work? I can tell you that Julie and how she works has changed my life. I can’t recommend Julie (and her work!) highly enough.” – Neil Hanes, 2012

“Having ummed and ahhed about going for hypnotherapy to help with weight loss for a number of years, I finally plucked up the courage to contact Julie. She has a lovely way about her which instantly puts you at your ease and I find that her sessions give me a great sense of relaxation. I had often felt that something was blocking me from allowing myself to successfully lose weight, but with Julie’s help I am able to address these issues in a way that is not intrusive or judgemental. Many people worry about having control taken away during the hypnosis but this is definitely not the case with Julie – I am the one in control and Julie is there to guide me. Having attended about 5 sessions I have already lost 10 pounds but unlike when I went on diets, this has happened without the anxiety I used to feel. I find that I am effortlessly making healthier food choices and am gradually learning to listen and respond to my body when it is full! All in all, I would thoroughly recommend Julie and only wish I had found her years ago instead of ploughing money into slimming clubs which only work on a short term basis and only tackle one aspect of over-eating. Thanks Julie x” – DT – Dec 2011.

“I suffered, please note past tense, from trichotillomania, this is a compulsive disorder where people pull out their own hair, usually one at a time. This started at the age of 19 and continued till the age of 57. At times of severe stress I would create bald patches on my own head. I had tried conventional hypnotherapy which did work, but only for a few weeks. I also tried EFT, another alternative therapy, which again worked temporarily. I went to see Julie over a year ago and following a one hour session I have not pulled out any more hair. I no longer consider myself to have this condition.”– M – March 2011.

“Julie has helped me tremendously with my driving phobia. I have always been a safe and competent driver, but very nervous. My father suffered from road rage and being in a car with him was extremely unpleasant, my mum said she preferred to walk! A session with Julie gave my confidence in my own skills and driving has since been quite enjoyable, a novel experience for me.” – Marg, April 2011.

“The hypnotherapy sessions with Julie were absolutely wonderful….. I awoke feeling like I’d cleared out a load of old emotional baggage after each session. I also felt so much clearer headed and somehow ‘re-charged’ after each session……it really helped to get me through a very tough couple of months following the death of my father to bone cancer in August 2010. The sessions left me feeling calmer and much more able to deal with my grief. I really looked forward to each session as it gave me some quality ‘time out’ to deal with everything that had happened to me…..which is very difficult with a large young family. Thoroughly professional and worth every penny!!” – Jo Martin Sep 2010.

“Julie has an amazing ability to get to the heart of the issue, fast. In only one session I feel like a huge block has been removed – something that had been holding me back from moving my own business forward. I feel energised and focused and excited about moving on. Julie is an incredibly gifted lady and I would recommend anyone who is ‘stuck’ in any way to give Julie a ring and fix an appointment now! Julie – thank you from the bottom of my heart.” – Helen Brown 2010.
