Before my first visit to Muriel, it’s safe to say I was in a pretty bad place. I was adapting to a lot of change in my life, a lot of chaos and feeling very confused and uncertain about my future. I was fed up with my job and had undertaken a lengthy stint of drinking on my lunch breaks followed by the evening, which almost resulted in me taking extended time off because of stress and to reevaluate things. I wasn’t exercising in the way I used to, I was substituting food for alcohol and was getting myself into heavy debt whilst having nothing to show for it except a lot of anxiety, panic attacks, depression, sleepless nights and hangovers on a daily basis. Visiting Muriel made a huge difference. Her approach was very calming and her techniques are fantastic in terms of identifying where the problems are rooted before upending them. I left my first session feeling a lot more reassured, confident, and equipped with the necessary tools to fight off my immediate demons where at times it didn’t even seem possible. There were noticeable changes in my life at work, at home and in my relationship, and this continued to improve as I progressed through my six-session course. It’s not always easy to fight your way out of a corner when the world seems to be against you, but Muriel gave me back the strength and motivation to tackle my problems more practically and effectively. I left feeling much like my old self but far more confident and with the knowledge that I can be better, and that I can be stronger going forward. She is fantastic and I would absolutely recommend her to anybody who is having a tough time.
I first visited Muriel during a period of acute insomnia. Sleep had become a real problem and fixation for me; I was only getting around 3 to 4 hours rest per night – if I was managing to drop off at all. Things had become so bad I was at real risk of losing my job and everything that goes with it.
I’d tried a whole host of different strategies and techniques but nothing made much of an impact until I visited Muriel. After a single session with her, I noticed a dramatic improvement in my sleep.
A few months on from the cognitive therapy and I’m now averaging around 8 hours sleep per night. The difference this had made to my life is enormous!
The second time I saw Muriel she helped me understand the root causes of my anxiety and the resulting insomnia. Thanks in large part to her guidance, I now have a plan in place to change the areas of my life that were worrying me most. But, more than that, the session also prompted me to change my outlook: the world now seems more full of possibilities than it did before.
In just two one-hour appointments Muriel made a real difference to my life and I can’t speak highly enough of the cognitive hypnotherapy she offers.
I was immediately put at ease at the initial free consultation when we discussed various options. She suggested that two or three sessions would probably be enough to help me – I said, ‘I thought I would need at least 10’!
Muriel provided me with techniques to address the anxiety, including a recording specifically for me to listen to. In fact, it only took three sessions for me to feel so much better. I was delighted with her help which resolved my issues with seemingly little effort from me but with a lot of effort from her.
Muriel is very conscientious, easy to get on with, and I would have no hesitation going back to her again if I needed to. I would highly recommend her.”
