Letting Go of Past Insecurities

“Letting go of past insecurities”

 

Hope Bryony

 

I reached out to Ricky at Calmer Minds at a time in my life where I was reflecting on feelings of instability and insecurity that were coming up in my life and relationships that I wanted to explore a bit more.

 

Having experienced other talking therapies including counselling and CBT, I wasn’t sure what to expect with hypnotherapy, but Ricky put me straight at ease and expertly guided me through the process.

 

I feel like hypnotherapy enabled me to dig deeper into past experiences in a gentle but profound way that I hadn’t experience through other forms of therapy. Since working with Ricky, I have felt more centred and can appreciate my experience and my relationship with my past in a more productive way.

 

I would 100% recommend Calmer Minds to anyone seeking a better understand of themselves and a positive way forward.

“Overcoming Trauma from Past Relationships”

 

Sheryl Brown

 

I booked in to see Calmer Minds following the end of a very traumatic and toxic relationship. Even before my first session he was more than helpful answering my queries and concerns.

 

I was surprised how relaxed and engaged I was from my first session and Ricky always made me feel comfortable, listened to and that he understood my needs and aims.

 

The rewind technique I found particularly effective and also the other methods he used in helping me move forward and also with self worth issues.

 

I can honestly say that family and friends have noticed a big difference in me and I feel the best version of myself that I ever have. After having psychotherapy in the past and feeling that I had gone as far as I could with it, I read that the subconscious mind is where you sometimes need to go to heal.

 

I went to see Ricky as a sobbing anxious mess and left feeling like I could move into a new chapter as a healthy, happy and confident person. My self worth has flourished since my sessions and I feel content, happy and full of self love.

 

I have already recommended Calmer Minds to friends and I don’t think I could ever put into words just how much he helped me and I can’t thank them enough

Trauma from Past Relationships
Dealing With Depression

“Dealing with Change and Depression”

 

Kingsley Hall

 

Hi, my name is Kings. I moved into a flat about 2 years ago. I live alone and it was a massive change for me as I had been living with parents for too long and I was used to living in their setting. I really struggled for the first year. I struggled with different surrounding noises, the permanent independence and and knowing that everything was my problem to deal with. I had new neighbours, who occasionally disturbed me and I found it really overwhelming. I often considered selling up but I really didn’t want to go back to my parents’ home again; it’s one thing to go back for respite, but I did not want to return forever, so I sought a hypnotherapist. I wanted someone who could help look at things in a different way – someone who could change my perspective, give me something else to think about – maybe even help me with a ‘safe-place’ to mentally escape to. This led me to Calmer Minds.

 

Ricky is easy to talk to. He’s compassionate and empathetic and doesn’t do the hard sell. He tells you how he works and is patient with your answers. He is aware how stressful is it to require his services and he takes that into consideration. He shows an interest and will contact you after his sessions have finished to check on your welfare. He’s not just in it for the money – he absolutely cares.

 

Now I have a clearer mind. I find it easier to deal with stress. Don’t get me wrong, I still have my bad days when I struggle, but listening to his MP3 track brings me down and chills me out immediately. I have learned to accept that you can’t change everything and you DO get used to certain things that used to bother me intensely. I know he is only a phone call away if I need him.

“Overcoming Fears and Phobias”

 

Amy Friedman

 

I had a life time fear of cats for over 60 years and I needed help to get over this debilitating phobia that was paralyzing my life on so many levels. Psychotherapy or exposure therapy was not the answer.

 

I spoke with Calmer Minds and after 2 sessions my fear/phobia was gone! I am totally shocked and amazed that I was able walk into my sisters house for Christmas Eve for the first time with zero anxiety this all I wanted.

 

I even saw the cat twice and did not run out of the house. Ricky has made a behavioral change in me that I never dreamed could be a reality! I highly recommend Ricky, he’s amazing he is patient and listens and I was so comfortable!

 

I still have no clue what he did…He said he could help me and he totally delivered!!

Fears and Phobias
From Anxiety to Calm

“From Anxiety to Calm”

 

Jamie

 

I contacted Calmer Minds when I became very anxious about work and life in general following the passing of close family members. I was made to feel very much at ease and welcome in a friendly and relaxed environment.

 

Unbeknown to myself, I was made redundant the day after my first session and surprisingly felt extremely calm about the situation which would normally cause my anxiety levels to rise.

 

It was a positive experience and I will certainly attend again. I would definitely recommend Calmer Minds and have already done so to close friends.

“Overcoming Self Doubt”

 

Barry Leonard

 

Getting older the stresses and stains of life seemed to catch up with me, that coupled with isolation and lockdown through the pandemic I had lost all desire, drive and direction in my life. I felt flat and lost, lost of confidence and purpose. I knew something needed to change, I needed to change and that’s when Calmer minds came into my life and changed everything.

 

Calmer Minds have been absolutely fantastic start to finish, form first initial consultation all the way through my weekly sessions with after care and support. The experience was very welcoming, friendly and uplifting to let go of a lot of the negative self imposed mental barriers that were holding me back and has helped me gain confidence and self belief back.

 

The process has undoubtedly helped me regain my confidence and self belief back, I handle the stresses of everyday living and a high pressure career with more ease and have actually thrived and performed above a level I haven’t in years.

 

I would most definitely recommend everyone no matter what you’re going through how big or small, go talk to Calmer Minds, working with them has changed my life drastically.

Ricky has helped me so much in recent months in my recovery following a serious cycling accident. The techniques he uses - hypnotherapy and guided visualisation are gentle and leave me feeling calmer and able to face my fears and anxieties. Highly recommend Ricky if you need help the way I did.

A few months ago I contacted Ricky to help me overcome my nail biting habit using hypnosis. The therapy worked wonders and I have pretty much broken the habit completely. I would recommend this hypnotherapy to anyone looking to break a self destructive habit.

Couldn’t recommend Ricky enough, started sessions with him a while back and had 1-2 sessions a week and it helped me massively, felt refreshed and reset after each session, wouldn’t go to anyone else if I needed more help in the future

Having lived with ptsd since being involved in a car accident more than 15yrs ago, I was struggling with travelling as a passenger in a car and would be a horrendous, anxious, aggressive person while in that seat. The tension nd stress I would hold in my body throughout the whole journey, would ruin the day/event etc. It was time to change this , it wasn't fair on the people I travelled with and I wasn't being fair to myself either. I had seen Ricky on Facebook and followed him for a while. I thought, 'what the heck, let's give it a go'. Of course I was sceptical but I was open to trying anything, to help me overcome this debilitating ptsd. Nothing had helped so far. Ricky was extremely helpful, he explained what the process was and what would happen during our sessions, he was very calm, friendly and approachable. I felt like I could tell him anything, putting my complete trust in him. After one session, I honestly don't know how he's done it or what he did, but I have been able to travel as a passenger on short and longer journeys without the anxiety and need to control the driver and their actions. I get to my destination, get out the car feeling relaxed, instead of exhausted and tearful. Sometimes, I can't even remember getting from A to B! Ricky is a wizard and I am forever grateful that I found him!

Soo what can I say!! I have suffered from big anxiety from driving even tho I passed my test 6 years ago I had an enormous fear of driving on my own. After 2 sessions with Ricky all my fear has gone and I'm driving without a problem! Ricky makes you feel at ease throughout his sessions and has really worked wonders with me!! Its changed the way I look at things and my life for the better. I would recommend Calmer minds for anyone that's having similar problems.

As an anxious learner driver the driving audio is helping massively. Even after listening once it helped me to relax and ground myself!
