I went to see James after many, many years of poor sleep. I had simply got used to this situation and managed it with the aid of sleeping pills (and being very tired a lot of the time).
My wife encouraged me to seek alternative therapies and after a quick search online came across Fix My Mind. I spoke to his secretary, Lucy, a couple of times as part of the initial consultation and she was a pleasure to deal with. The cost is very high, albeit I guess it is inline with other successful therapists, but I decided to go ahead as I would have paid a far higher amount to be guaranteed a successful outcome.
I had to spend 2 or 3 hours filling in the questionnaire which in itself was a useful exercise as it made me think about my situation from a number of different angles.
I was nervous when I turned up for my first consultation and really did not know what to expect. We spent 20 mins or so going through my responses to the questionnaire while James tried to get to the root of the issue before I was put into a deep relaxation state and used a number of visualisation techniques to frame my insomnia. I returned 2 weeks later for another session and this consolidated what we had worked on before. I did notice (and was impressed) that for both sessions, James had picked up on small but important points that I had mentioned in the questionnaire or as part of initial discussions.
Bar sleeping very poorly the first night, my condition did improve but I thought I would wait a few weeks before posting a review because I wanted to be quite confident that my situation really had changed. I am now absolutely delighted to say my sleep has improved immeasurably and I feel this is not going to change – James really has fixed my mind.
I found both sessions mildly traumatic and when I mentioned this to James he was quite dismissive so do not go in there expecting the session to be easy. However, what was important to me was the net outcome and for that I have no hesitation in awarding 5 stars.
Thank you James. *
