The best part of what I do is knowing I've helped someone. Here are just a few of the endorsements I've received.
Fear of flying
I decided to try hypnotherapy to deal with emetophobia I had dealt with since childhood. Now, having children of my own I was desperate to get help (In order not pass my phobia onto them and to enable me to help them when they are poorly and at their most vulnerable). I was actually at the point where I did not want to send my 3 year old to nursery for the fear that other children would make her ill. I worked with Anne and she put me at ease straight away when initially, even talking about my phobia upset me. The first session was really helpful to look at how and why phobias exist and how the brain works to establish these fears and elicit the fight or flight response. I was given good advice on a number of practices to put into place in order to help with the anxiety my phobia created. Bit by bit, using sound files and regular sessions I have managed to increase my confidence surrounding my phobia to the highest level it’s ever been in my lifetime (9/10) I now feel that I CAN and WILL deal with this when it occurs. I have sent my daughter to her first week at nursery with a much more positive outlook and have been able to enjoy her first experience of school life without major anxiety. Thank you so much Anne!

I needed some help with public speaking and anxiety around work based presentations and leading meetings. I met a lovely lady called Anne Gregory who immediately reassured me that this was fairly common and definitely something she could help with. I put my faith in Anne knowing I had a big board meeting to Chair in Oxford the following month and I was pretty terrified but after 2 sessions, I started to feel empowered and wanted to plan for it (something I would never be excited to do). I had a month to wait before the meeting and presentation and managed to fit in 3 sessions. I have no idea what has happened to me but my colleagues have all noticed how at ease I am when I’m delivering a presentation or chairing a meeting and I have even started to bring a bit of humour into the meetings that were once so daunting for me. I was like a rabbit in headlights!! I had a further 2 sessions with Anne to make sure I was really ‘fixed’ and I can say with conviction that I’ve delivered 4 presentations and headed up 2 meetings in the last 6 weeks and I’m really calm about it. The soundfile helped and I still listen every night because it relaxes me so much and ‘gets me in the zone’. I can’t thank Anne enough as I’ve left happier and able to overcome my fear.

I visited for anxiety and insomnia. I had been struggling with this for many years, particularly issues with sleep. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was immediately put at ease by Anne who was very patient and explained everything. I have finally started to sleep better and I am less anxious, from the sessions and listening to the wonderful soundfile you get as part of your therapy. Thank you so much to Anne.

I had been a committed smoker for 25 years and had tried many times to stop for financial reasons initially but then more health. I was sceptical and was not convinced hypnotherapy would work for me. Anne Gregory put me at complete ease and explained clearly what to expect. I left feeling amazingly calm and relaxed and a non smoker. Its been 10 months now. I cannot recommend this enough. I wish I had found hypnotherapy years ago. Kev Cody - 6 June 2018
My situation was that I was transitioning from one career to another and needed help with confidence. I was also going through some family bereavement too. Anne has taught me some methods of relaxation and self preservation, keeping my 'stress bucket' from overflowing. I'm overwhelmingly pleased with how much more calm I am in situations where previously I would have reacted more emotionally. Richard Banks - 29 April 2018
I have been seeing Anne since October 2017 and have seen a great improvement in managing my anxiety. Thanks to the hypnotherapy techniques I have become more relaxed at work and have gained confidence in social situations. I would thoroughly recommend this service to anyone.

When I first met Anne I felt trapped in a cycle of depression and anxiety and felt very little hope for the future. I'd tried various things previously to no avail so as a last resort I thought I'd try hypnotherapy and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Anne couldn't of been nicer and made me feel at ease straight away. The whole process has made such a big difference to my mental health and my quality of life in a relatively short space of time. Thank you so much Anne x.

I contacted Anne for help with confidence and self-esteem. From the 1st phone call with Anne I felt at ease that she understood my situation and could help. The initial consultation was very informative and explained a lot about my thought processes. After 4 sessions I was feeling much better about myself and can see huge differences in my outlook and behaviour. Having the sound file for while I'm at home is also a huge help. I would highly recommend.

I came to get help in straightening out some mental issues I was having. Nothing too heavy duty but still something I thought I needed some help with. Anne did a great job from the beginning in explaining what my thought processes were doing to my mental state and it all made perfect sense. I clearly needed to adjust my thinking and approach situations in a different way, mentally. I came for about 11 visits and left knowing what I needed to do to rewire my thinking. The hardest part for me is actually putting it all into place but I know full well that if I manage to follow everything Anne explained to me, I’ll be 100% better than I was before my first visit. I’m grateful for the time, attention and consideration I was given and if I need to return, I know I’ll be in good hands.

Anne was recommended to me by a friend who wanted confidence for a work presentation and I was going through a lot of changes in my life and wanted to deal with stress better. So I booked with Anne and after only 3 sessions I feel so much clearer and ready to take on challenges with more confidence. Anne asked the right questions about my life and what I was going through but also reminded me that I was stronger than I thought. I felt instantly at ease discussing things with Anne and I feel better equipped to deal with my stress levels. I now feel I have a clear path for 2017 and I am grateful to Anne for her guidance.

I used to suffer from bouts of anxiety and uncertainty. I came across this service on the Internet and decided to get in contact. Anne was extremely professional and put me at ease straight away. I felt the benefits from the first session immediately and have continued to do so. I now have a much more positive outlook on life. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Anne to anyone thinking of or considering this option.

I had hypnotherapy with Anne to try to resolve my anxieties associated with flying. It was very successful and enabled me to fly on holiday and have a wonderful time. It was such a liberating feeling ! The skills you acquire during hypnosis are transferable and can help you with other anxieties you may have in life too.
The downloads are invaluable, they help to anchor you when you might be feeling stressed. A great resource to have.
Anne is a great listener, kind, professional and really puts you at ease, sessions are followed up by a supportive email. Don't hesitate to contact her, I'm so glad I did..

I had a real struggle with a pigeon phobia. Although funny to many, it was really getting in the way of my life and stopping me doing things I would otherwise enjoy such as going to parks, sitting outside at cafes, visiting the city centre, etc. I was fortunate enough to contact Anne, who has been an absolute diamond since Day 1. I almost didn't turn up to my appointment as I was feeling so anxious but she assured me all would be fine and she was right! I found the sessions to be very informative as well as relaxing, and it became easy for me to understand why I was feeling anxious. I made sure I followed Anne's advice and used the hypnotherapy audio files at night to help me relax. They worked fantastically and within just over a month I feel like a different person. I have even managed to enjoy a city break in Barcelona (where there are many pigeons!) and walk past them without them bothering me - something I never thought I could do! A huge thank you to Anne, who was an excellent listener, motivational and gave a personal touch with her emails. I can't thank you enough!

I got in touch after being at a loss with anxiety over public speaking. I saw Anne, who I would highly recommend! She was brilliant from day 1; explaining and helping me understand why it was happening. She listened, and really helped me through. I can't believe the difference it has made-I've even signed up to speak at a conference. Go for it!

I got in touch for hypnotherapy after suffering with quite severe anxiety for many years. I was completely new to hypnotherapy and quite nervous at first but was completely put at ease by Anne. Anne explained to me how the brain works and how to break out of habits and to relax. I stuck to the 'homework', which is listening to the hypnosis tapes at home and new tasks which are set, these helped massively in improving me in between sessions. After 3 sessions with Anne, I am now able to understand and control my anxiety and I am continuously making improvements. If you are suffering from anxiety at all I would recommend 100%, I only wish I had done it sooner.

A very positive experience. It's brought many long term benefits, for both the reason I attended and aspects of my life I hadn't even thought of. For example my memory improved so much I got a First in an exam where none of my revised areas came up!
Anne was wonderful - really understood and respected what I needed.

I decided to go for hypnotherapy after being recommended by a very close friend who had tried it himself. I was having lots of trouble with negativity, anxiety, stress, depression of some form… I struggled for nearly 2 years and it was affecting my home life, marriage, and my friendship with those who I love most… I finally decided enough was enough and I picked the phone up.. I spoke to Anne Gregory who was to be my counsellor.. When I went I was in the doldrums to be honest… "I went with open eyes and a willingness to talk, listen and get myself back to being Steve".. That phone call was to be the most positive action I have taken in a good time… ANNE GREGORY is the most easy and understanding lady to have my sessions with. I felt totally at ease with Anne and totally trust and respect what she has done for me… My progress has been somewhat rapid because she gave me the confidence and the tools to go and use.. Thank you Anne, you're a star and a lovely, lovely person too… Steve x.

I recently contacted Anne as I was suffering with anxiety, which has been a build up of stress over a number of years…..
I was at a real low in my life and it was beginning to affect my day to day life. I worked with Anne over a number of weeks and found the sessions really helpful and have now started to deal with my anxiety really well and have started to feel like my old self, with a much more positive attitude.

It was so good to meet you on Saturday and I have to say I actually felt relaxed all weekend which is such a leap forward for me so thank you so much. I listened to the relaxation download last night just before I went to sleep and really enjoyed it. All in all I am feeling very positive and hopeful about this journey. Thanks, X

It has taken me a while to write this review because I don't really know how to put into words how much Anne has helped change my life. I have suffered from anxiety for 3 years starting during my first year at university and coming to see Anne and going down the route of hypnotherapy was the last on a long list of medication, therapy and other methods I have tried. I'm glad to say that it is the only thing that has worked for me. I was a huge sceptic but it became obvious even after my first session with Anne that I was much more calm and relaxed. By using the techniques Anne has taught me I am finally getting back to the confident happy person that I used to be. Thank you Anne x.

For the 1st time in my life I have control over my bad relationship with food! No longer is the fridge my captor and the cupboard my prisoner! I feel free and in control of what I eat for the 1st time in 41 years!! Such a shame I didn't do it earlier but I'm doing it now!! Thanks to Anne.

I went to see Anne to go alongside IVF treatment. My husband and I had no medical reason to not conceive naturally, but had 8 separate embryo replacements that all systematically failed. This was to be our last chance at IVF and I wanted to explore the idea that my mind and body weren't necessarily in sync with what I was wanting to happen to me.
I saw Anne 5 times in total - 4 during treatment, and once after embryo replacement.
I felt extremely relaxed during the course and found that IVF aside, I was sleeping amazingly and was much more calm at work and in stressful situations.
The cherry on the cake was that we got our first positive test result, and at the 7 week scan it was confirmed that we were having twins!

I started seeing Anne for issues related to anxiety after having tried various different methods that have not worked. Anne made me feel very comfortable and has helped me to start thinking positively; something I thought was impossible after being such a negative person. I am now finding day-to-day life much easier and calmer and I am no longer finding work a struggle. I am shocked at the difference 6 sessions has made. I work in mental health and will definitely be mentioning hypnotherapy to others. Thank you!
Briony Hunt - 18 Dec 2014
I came to see Anne for hypnotherapy for a phobia I had been suffering with for 14 years which was causing a lot of anxiety for me. I'd just about had enough so thought I'd give hypnotherapy a try. I'm so glad I did, Anne was very friendly, professional and understanding, she put me at ease straight away. Anne did not make me keep talking about my phobia and anxiety but she got me to think about all the positives in my life and how positive thinking can be so powerful in overcoming negative thoughts and actions. The hypnotherapy sessions have made me feel so much more relaxed and I am no longer constantly thinking about the phobia. Anne has taught me ways to overcome something that was beginning to control every aspect of my life. I now feel confident to do more things that I would often shy away from. I would definately recommend Anne to anybody suffering from anxiety or phobias.
