Wedding Day Nerves
"Before seeing Margaret I had been dreading my big day as I was so nervous about being the centre of attention for the day and about making a speech. I was so worried about my speech that I had told all close to me that I would not be making one as I couldn’t stand the embarrassment of everyone seeing me so nervous. Previously, when speaking in public, I have suffered with a trembling voice, shaking, red face and extreme sweating. As you can imagine, I did not want to be seen like this by everyone.
After an appointment with Margaret, I felt much more at ease about the whole occasion. I could see that, with her help, I could embrace my day instead of dreading it! I decided after this consultation to write my speech. I had an appointment with Margaret the day before my wedding and she talked me through public speaking techniques and I practised it with her until it started to feel like I could actually do it without the feelings I had previously.
On my wedding day, I felt slightly nervous but more excited. I breezed through the ceremony saying my vows clearly and proudly. The whole day I felt so bubbly and happy. The consultations really had taken the world off my shoulders and I felt so at ease. It came to my speech and I spoke publicly like never before. I was confident, spoke clearly and really did enjoy doing it. Everyone was amazed at what a good speech I had made and I was told it was by far the best speech made on the day.
With Margaret’s help, I stopped dreading my wedding day and I enjoyed the best and most proudest day of my life." SJ
"I thought I must let you know how successful our hypnotherapy session was. After 12 years with the same company, I was suffering from work-related stress which culminated in my launching a grievance against the company. As the date of the grievance hearing approached I became highly nervous, so much so that I was frequently tearful and suffering classic symptoms of anxiety: unable to sleep, racing heart etc. The hearing was an ordeal I was dreading.
However, after our session I felt so much better, far calmer and more confident about facing the hearing. On the morning of the hearing I awoke feeling refreshed, calm and confident. When I attended, it was not with a feeling of trepidation but of assertiveness, calmness and a determination to fight my corner. I am pleased to say I conducted myself in a calm, dignified and totally professional manner. I do not believe this would have been the case had it not been for our wonderfully effective session.
Whatever the outcome of the grievance process, I really can't thank you enough. I know with certainty that, had it not been for your help, I would have been a gibbering wreck. I would definitely recommend you to anyone who felt they could benefit from hypnotherapy. Kind regards and many thanks, Lorretta."
