Testimonials

I was just reading a magazine the kids brought home from school and saw your advert, which reminded me that I have not been in touch since we last met. Life is good especially with the family, I have very few angry outbursts and if I do I never beat myself up about them. I’m much happier & confident within myself and in relationships with others. If I ever start to think unhelpfully I can detect it and put myself back on the right path… I finally stopped taking antidepressants in may and am never going back on them, I have lost 10lbs since i stopped them and feel great and more comfortable in clothes.

My next goal is stopping smoking and I will be in touch soon for your help.

Anyway enough about me, I hope you are well and thank you for your help.

S P Ipswich (Anxiety and Depression)

In June last year I began to have issues about going into school, these issues then escalated into the fear of going anywhere other than home, because of this I was forced to leave school as I still could not return in September to start the new year. This left me feeling down and frustrated because I just wanted to be my ‘normal’ self and my entire life came to a standstilll.

In October my mum was searching on the internet for treatments or people that could help me and she found Melanie’s website, I had a look through it and read what people had said and decided I wanted to go to the consultation and see if she could help me. It was very difficult for me to even go into her office but she was very friendly and made me feel at ease.

The programme has helped me to completely get rid of the rituals I was doing for years before I went to see Melanie, I have always had slight OCD but this was made worse by the stress and anxiety, getting rid of these, Melanie made me less stressed and feel overall much more relaxed and in control of my own thoughts and feelings. I feel happier and more upbeat about being able to get back to ‘normal’, I have made very positive steps towards this goal. I will be continuing to put the lessons into practice in order to get there and I know Melanie is there to help me if I need it.

Thank you for helping me.

G.U. Ipswich (Agoraphobia, anxiety and low self esteem)

I am 33 years old and recently visited Melanie. For a number of years I had struggled with stress due to juggling a high pressure job in London, a young family and the loss of my mother. These pressures left me feeling exhausted, anxious and low in confidence.

Over a 5 week period I worked with Melanie on a weekly basis. I can safely say it was amazing and after just one session I could already see the benefits and felt a weight lifted off my shoulders. Melanie really makes you realise the unhelpful thinking styles that we all have and that dictate the way we think and feel.

Melanie made me realise the negative thinking styles that I had and over the following weeks I learnt how to stop them and replace them with a more positive and helpful thought process. The main thing is to learn about ourselves and how we feel and think. Once we know this, it is easy to change the negative points to positives. I learnt that the way I was feeling was being created by myself and was not simply something that happens beyond our control.

I now feel completely in control of my life which has got rid of my anxieties and raised my self-esteem and confidence. My working and family life has benefited no end and I would recommend it to anyone.

S.C. Ipswich (Anxiety and pressure of work)

I came to see you to help me with my problems with overeating. You didn’t wave a magic wand but you did really help me to change the way I react to certain situations and learn to realise the root cause of my issues and address them head on.

In 5 months I have lost over 3 stone and counting! I feel so much healthier not just my body but my mind too. I have also had a promotion at work too! Thank you so much for all the help you have given me I cannot rave enough about how much you have helped me!

S. H. S. Ipswich (‘Shrink’ weight loss)

The difference Melanie has made to my wife’s life has been fantastic. Pict is a great life tool but it still needs to be applied in the best way and Melanie does this to great effect. Regardless of whether you have problems in life or are relatively content everybody can take something from this!

I have been going to see Melanie for the past 6 months regarding issues from my past. These issues have been in control of me for most of my adult life but thanks to Melanie with her welcoming and cohesive approach they no longer do. It is me who has taken control of them, putting them in the place they really belong…in the past!!!

I had felt that i was meant to be different to what I have been ever since I was a child. I had been chasing the better version of myself that I knew I could be. A feeling of being trap with personality traits that don’t belong to me.

Melanie has help me get so much closer to what I call ‘the real me ‘. One session at a time, one issue at a time until things fall into place to rebuild what I could always feel had been damaged.

She has been a kind guide, in a very peaceful and welcoming environment making a difficult process, an exciting journey. Sometimes difficulty journey but always manageable. Always reinforcing my confidence and reassuring me along the way.

I am very grateful and hope that many find the courage to start the process of cleaning up what life has thrown at them which has changed them. Invaluable changes happen without effort, the only regret will be to not have done it sooner!

A truly wonderful and life changing changing experienced with a very giving and gentle guide.
