“As a result of working with Patti, I have experienced significant change and growth in ways that at many points in my life I didn’t think were possible for me. Patti has a joyful spirit, patience and empathy, which filled our sessions with energy and, where needed, fun.”
Suzi, Advertising Client Services Director. Issue: Low confidence & Self-doubt
“I found Patti's toolkit of exceptional listening skills, a grounding in Psychology, and natural kindness of spirit to be a powerful and triumphant combination, which helped me to gain clarity about the type of work that will give me fulfilment and purpose.”
Hannah, Floral Designer. Goal: Identify a new career path
“Patti is an excellent Coach. She helped me to gain refreshing clarity about my situation and the big life decisions that I had to make. The sessions were uplifting and empowering thanks to Patti’s great optimism and support.”
Ben, Music Producer. Goal: Establish a portfolio career
"Every session with Patti was like an injection of adrenaline! Patti helped me to realise what was holding me back from things I had to get done. After each session I felt like everything that I needed to do was so clear to me, and I felt like "Right, I want to do it now!".”
Barby, Teacher. Goal: Start her own business
“I feel AMAZING!!!! I hired you at absolute rock bottom with no confidence in myself or my business and barely any business and now I feel like a completely different person. I feel like even if things slow down now it will just be a blip and not a reflection on my worth. I feel like I can't go back to the person I was, which is a very strange feeling after being in that place for SOOOOO long. It wasn't this overnight switch where I woke up feeling different, rather it has been a gradual change and still a year later I am realising how much I have changed. Thank you so much for everything Patti, you are a miracle worker!”Katie, Photographer. Issue: Procrastination & Self-doubt.
“I worked with Patti after failing my final Royal College GP exam due to stress and performance anxiety. Working with Patti meant that when I re-took the exam, I was able to keep at bay the mountain of pressure that had clouded my mind the first time. I was able to forget that the examiner was there and I really relaxed and enjoyed the exam! I passed the exam with flying colours and ranked in the top 3% in the country out of hundreds of my peers.”
Neil, GP. Issue: Exam Performance Anxiety.
“Right up until the point that I closed my eyes during our first session, I was sure that hypnosis wouldn’t work on me. But coming out of that session the difference I felt was massive. When I was spontaneously invited to speak in public at work the day after the session I felt fine and actually realised how silly it was that I’d been so worked up about it my whole life. I’ve been telling everyone how brilliant Patti is and how brilliant therapy with her was.”Jake, Advertising Producer. Issue: Low Confidence & Public Speaking Anxiety.
“The moment I left the first session I felt like 20 years had been lifted from my shoulders. It was euphoric. Since working with Patti I have been much more proactive in trying to sort my life out and feel much more optimistic about the future. The problems no longer seem insurmountable. I can't thank you enough.”
David, Plumber. Issue: Procrastination.
“I don't think I can easily put into words the transformation that has taken place since working with you, Patti. I found it easy to prepare for my upcoming talk - my mind felt clear and I wasn't anxious at all about the contents or whether it was good enough. I felt a confidence without arrogance. Before the talk I felt relatively calm, with mild nerves. I was looking forward to giving my talk. As for the actual talk: I felt relaxed and for the first time in I don't know how long (if ever), I genuinely enjoyed giving the talk. People commented on this afterwards! I went home, very relaxed, and didn't find myself dissecting it in my mind or going over it all. Thank you so very much!!! I feel so grateful and so happy for all your help.”
Mahamani, Teacher. Issue: Public Speaking Anxiety.
“Before working with Patti I felt overwhelmed, incapable and struggled to speak up and be heard in a tough working environment. After two sessions with Patti the change I experienced was quite dramatic. I felt more positive, I presented confidently to senior stakeholders, I found myself chipping in in meetings without a second thought, and when faced with similar issues to the past at work (being over-worked and over-looked) I was able to address them proactively and talk to my boss, which was liberating.”
Kirsty, User Experience Designer. Issue: Imposter Syndrome and Anxiety.
“Before meeting Patti I was skeptical. I have lived with a phobia of fruit all my life. I couldn't sit in the same room as someone eating certain fruits because it repulsed me to the point that I’d feel nauseous. I tried therapy before with two other hypnotherapists but to no avail. Patti was very different, however, and on meeting her I was immediately won over. Not only is she a very skilled practitioner, but her belief in her therapy quickly rubs off on you. Patti is amazingly personable and analytical so she can get you to open doors that had been firmly shut for years. Patti is also very adaptive, she doesn’t rely on a single method. She’s genuinely interested in you as a person and spends the time to get to know you and see where she can best use her skills to retrain your brain and affect your behaviour; this alone makes her stand out above any other therapist I’d met. By our final session I was picking up segments of oranges, peeling bananas and smelling satsuma peels. Patti helped desensitise my feelings and change my behaviour towards fruit. Patti really helped me and I’d fully recommend her to anyone suffering with a phobia.”
Ben, Producer. Issue: Fruit Phobia.
“I have suffered from a dog phobia for 20 years. When we worked together, Patti took the time to explain the science behind the techniques as she recognised that would put me at ease and make me more receptive. Most importantly she was totally non-judgemental and genuinely interested. After working together I noticed an immediate change in my reaction to dogs. Previously I would feel in an extreme state of anxiety if I was near a dog, but I immediately felt calmer and more in control of these situations and did not have the same sickening physical reaction as before! My best friend could not believe my behaviour around 2 massive dogs the other day! I went straight up to them and let my baby play with them my friend was dumbfounded! The change is pretty dramatic. Patti also had some take home techniques to use if I find myself near a dog and I've found it so useful having these.”
Katie, TV Executive Producer. Issue: Dog Phobia.
“After the session with Patti I instantly felt like a massive weight had been lifted and a lot of pressure had been released. I did second guess myself at one point, but I just decided to ignore it. I feel that the session I had with Patti was really successful and that it really helped me. I got the inspiration for my new career thanks to Patti and I can’t wait to do my training in a couple of months’ time. I wish I had addressed this issue years ago. I’ve been battling it and holding myself back for years.”
