Anxiety/stress testimonial from L.B, Shrewsbury
“Many thanks Louise for my pre-operation consultation and equipping me with the tools to self-meditate into a stress and panic free state. When imagining how I would cope with being in hospital for my op, it always involved moderate to severe hysteria at a certain level (!): I was however calm, in control and confident in the week leading up to it and particularly as I walked to the anaesthetic room. You have truly equipped me with a technique that is transferable to many stressful situations. I particularly commend your professional, calm and engaging manner and cannot recommend you highly enough. “
Fear of flying testimonial from S.O, Telford.
“Hi Louise, just wanted to say a very big thank you for helping me with my fear of flying. It made our holiday start with an enjoyable flight which was far more preferable to the stress that I had gotten so used to. I actually sat on the plane like everyone else; not gripping the armrests and praying! My husband enjoyed the flight too! Thank you I shall definitely recommend you
Sleep problems testimonial from Sue, Shrewsbury.
“I have had a lot of trouble sleeping for at least the last five years which has had a big impact on my life in general.
My husband found Louise for me and she has helped hugely.
I warmed to Louise immediately and she made me feel at ease in her presence so that I was able to respond well.
Initially we simply talked and she was able to get to the root of the problem. In doing so she has changed my whole way of thinking about sleep. That and some relaxation and hypnotherapy has in turn improved my sleep pattern enormously. She also gave me something to download so that I could listen to it when I needed to.
I now have a quality of life that I enjoy and renewed energy.”
“It really was a magical experience, which I can look back on with happiness and pride. It was exactly the feeling I wanted when I came to our first session, to not be terrified, but excited and open to the possibility that labour could be an amazing experience. Thank you for preparing me for that so my body was able to do what was needed to make this happen!”
“I had a hypnotherapy for relaxation in pregnancy session with Louise, towards the end of my pregnancy, and it had a two-fold benefit for me:
1. it relaxed me. My stress levels had been through the roof once I passed my due date so it was wonderful to feel calm and relaxed through the gentle breathing and visualisation that Louise led me through, in the comfort of my own surroundings. It literally took a weight off my shoulders!
2. it empowered me. I had been so focussed on the physical aspects I could control to help onset labour, I hadn’t appreciated that my mental awareness / subconscious could also help with my preparations. This was a powerful insight to gain, which helped me trust that my body would know what to do (which it did! This birth was much more positive than my previous one).
I’m so glad I met Louise prior to giving birth; having hypnotherapy with her was such a positive experience for me!”
“FANTASTIC private hypno- birthing session this week with the brilliant Louise Jenkins. So lovely to have a session at home. THANK YOU so much feel zen and ready!!!”
“My husband and are I expecting our second baby soon. We had our first baby overseas and took Hypnobirthing classes during our first pregnancy. They were such an important part of our first pregnancy – time alone together to relax, prepare for the birth and focus on the new baby – so we decided to book onto Louise’s classes again this time. We also felt it would be useful to remind ourselves of some of the techniques we had learnt the first time around.
Surprisingly, Louise’s classes have been quite different. Rather than going over familiar ground we have learnt lots of new techniques for self-hypnosis, breath control and pain management and picked up some wonderful tips about preparing, mentally and physically, for the birth experience ahead. Instead of feeling we have been revising we have picked up lots of new tools for the toolkit instead, to complement what we learnt the first time.
I would say the classes are equally as useful for my husband as for myself, helping him in a really practical way to prepare to assist and support me during the birth. The most useful aspect for me as a ‘second-timer’ has been to revisit my first birth experience in a positive way and use it to help me prepare calmly and confidently for the next time.
I would highly recommend these classes to mums-to-be, whether it’s your first time or not.”
Working with children.
“Louise was recommended by a friend to help our 12 year old who had developed a habit which was proving detrimental. At our first meeting, both my daughter and I instantly felt comfortable with Louise and her warm and gentle manner made it very easy to discuss the problem with her. Subsequently our daughter has had several one-to-one sessions with Louise with extremely positive results.
Our daughter built up a very easy relationship with Louise and has said she would definitely wish to see Louise again should her problem recur. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Louise to any of our friends or family.”
