Testimonial – Health Anxiety

It’s always great to see clients doing well and to be part of that journey.

‘Before meeting Ben I had been suffering from an intense health anxiety for a good few months, where I was worrying all the time about my health, possibly a mid-life wobble. This started to affect my relationship and my everyday life as i could not shift these negative thoughts as they were time-consuming. A friend suggested hypnotherapy so I Googled ‘hypnotherapy in Manchester’ and came across Ben’s website.

I emailed Ben about my situation and I was very pleased with the quick response and positive, reassuring reply, so I arranged an initial consultation at Ben’s office in Stretford, which was perfect for me as i live 20 minutes away. My first consultation was an hour long chat so Ben could get to know me and my anxiety issue. I was very relieved to hear Ben could help me and has had clients with similar anxieties. After this first meeting I then started attending Ben’s hypnotherapy session every week for 10 weeks.

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the sessions are very comforting, positive-thought provoking and extremely relaxing so over these 10 weeks I began to feel so much better. I was relaxing more, my thoughts were shifting towards the positive and away from the negative, I was focusing on becoming healthier in what I ate and I even started cycling regularly. I then started visiting Ben on a monthly basis over the course of a year and I am now living a much healthier, active life and I even had the confidence to find a new job which is less stressful and much better for my well-being.

I can definitely say that my hypnotherapy sessions with Ben helped me find my new lease of life which is not consumed by anxiety.’
