I’d like to start off with the fact that I’ve never written a review in my life, but the impact that James has had on me is so incredible, I want tother people to know that there is hope!!
I suffered from trichotillomania for the past 18 years, very, very quietly and never telling a single person.
Over the past couple of years, it got progressively worse in the sense that I genuinely had no control over my hands which was soul destroying. During lockdown, things came to head and I was losing my hair very quickly. The impact that ttm had on my physical appearance was becoming more prevalent, and I decided to google for help - which is when I found James.
The phone consultation was great, James immediately understood my condition which was hugely comforting. I wasn’t sure what to expect for my appointment - I didn’t want to research hypnotherapy as I wanted to go in with an open mind, but obviously had various movie scenes in my head.
The appointment itself was calming, but also fascinating. We initially spoke about the pre questionnaire I had done prior to the appointment, and then went into the crux of it all. I can’t quite explain what actually happened, but it was around me gaining control of my life and ultimately my hands, and changing how I feel about certain memories, which cause any untoward emotions that in turn make the ttm worst. The appointment lasted an hour and that’s genuinely all I needed. An hour to help with something that has overwhelmed me for more than half of my life!!
Since the appointment a month ago, I can keep my hands still and most of all, I don’t want to pull my hair. The only way I can explain it is if I attempt to play with my hair like I used to, my hand feels like the opposite side of a battery to my head and there’s so much energy in between pushing my hand away. It’s honestly crazy! I’m not sure what I expected after seeing James, but it certainly wasn’t this miracle! His calming nature, his clear skills, and his empathy are fabulous, I couldn’t recommend him enough :)
I did some research about hypnotherapy before my sessions with James because I wanted to make sure I understood the process and somehow knew what to expect. But what I experienced and still am it is amazing and way beyond my expectations. The limited number of sessions, the results, James sensibility to navigate through my difficulties and how brilliant the techniques worked - and are still working after almost two months of our last session; I can only describe as a life changing experience. After years seeking results with different approaches, I've found what I've been looking for a very long time. Due the Covid-19 we had our sessions online, via ZOOM and it was as effective as if they were in person. Thanks James for changing my life for the best. *
