I was in my
sixties and had smoked for more years than I cared to remember. For
years I had tried to give up smoking:
I tried every
tablet, gum, patch and fake cigarette on the market, all to no
and as a last resort, I visited Mary. I had no confidence at all
that hypnotherapy would help me.
I had always
been very resistant to this idea and very adamant that it would
never work for me
because I would
actively oppose it.
However, I spent
a very peaceful hour with Mary – that was almost four years ago -
and I’ve not had a
since. Nobody is more amazed than me and I will always be grateful
Mary became my Counsellor after a
Traumatic period in my life, the transformation to my life and
to me is Truly Amazing.
Mary's ability to understand and
deal with my problems and issues gave me the confidence to
restart my life,
Mary is Sympathetic,
Knowledgeable, Kind and Empowering.
