Get to know my clients
I started working with Dee when I was 24 weeks pregnant. I live abroad in Germany with the armed forces and was only back in the UK for less than two weeks. Dee was very accommodating and we had four private sessions which both my partner and I attended, my mum was also able to attend two of these sessions.
I have always been quite an anxious person and when I confided in Dee, she made me a personalised anxiety CD for me to practise to help control my worries, anxieties and heart rate.
When I went back to the Germany, I stayed in regular contact with Dee and she was available if I had a question or concern. We set up Skype and exchanged email addresses. At 30 weeks pregnant, I got admitted to hospital with a pregnancy induced liver condition, whereby my live enzymes where significantly raised. I took my iPod with the relaxation tracks on and my Hypnobirthing book in with me and feel this really helped me to stay relaxed and in control during my week stay in hospital.
When I was discharged, I got in contact with Dee and explained my situation, she suggested with had another Hypnobirthing session through Skype at no extra cost to reinforce the previous sessions and help my body in reducing my liver enzymes. After this session, Dee recorded another CD for me to help me stay relaxed and subconsciously control my liver enzymes which she then posted to me in Germany.
I have a hospital appointment every week and I always let Dee know how I have got on and I am happy to report that my two previous appointments have concluded that my liver enzymes are now in the normal ranges!
In addition to this, if I every doubt myself or have any questions to ask, I do not hesitate to contact Dee, knowing that she will be more than willing to help and support me. More recently after I contacted Dee with a question, she wrote up some personalised affirmations for me to recite to myself on a daily basis.
I am over the moon with my Hypnobirthing experience and feel I have received the support and techniques that have not only helped me throughout my pregnancy and which I will reply on through my birth but which I will also use throughout my life.
Dee is a fantastic Hypnobirthing practitioner and I feel she is approachable, friendly, and more than willing to help. I will be recommending Hypnobirthing with Dee to all my friends. I cannot thank her enough for her support, help and the techniques she has taught me that will stay with me for the rest of my life.
As a dad, I was rather uncertain about attending the classes as I was unsure about the hypno bits! In fact, I really enjoyed the hypnosis, found the course very informative but at the same time relaxed and not embarrassing when ‘talking about private bits!!’ as Dee handled this very well. At the birth, I felt totally different to when my first son was born – I had a role, I could help and it was such a pleasure to see my wife having the calm birth we had hoped for. I would strongly recommend Dee’s classes.
As a partner, I went along to the classes just to support my wife’s choice. I was determined not to be hypnotised, but, as Dee suggested, I gave it a go – it was brilliant – totally relaxing – I looked forward to each session – especially the hypnosis! I use the cd that Dee gave us at home as I am in a highly stressful job – it really helps. I am so glad that I tried it.
Helping my daughter
After my daughter had been struggling to sleep for months, to the point of high anxiety about it, I had tried everything I could think of. I took her to the doctors where she was physically upset and we were told to 'get a grip'. At this point I hit the internet and found Dee. I wish I had done this long before as her kind, gentle nature immediately put my daughter at ease. After a few sessions with Dee she was less anxious and sleeping much better.
For me the two unprompted comments from my daughter summed it up, 'I feel more like myself again!', and her actually saying, 'I'm off to bed now'.
I can not thank Dee enough and would recommend her to anyone.
Finding myself again
Five years ago I suffered a period of depression and was prescribed anti-depressants for 12 months. Since coming off the tablets I have, on the whole, been OK. There are the odd times though when life becomes a little overwhelming and I can't make sense of my thoughts. On these occasions, when I just need that confidence that I am making the right decisions for my children and family, I book to see Dee and I come out of my appointment with a spring in my step and much more clarity of thought. I am very lucky and don't have huge problems and traumas in my life, but sometimes when things get too much I know that I can see Dee and she does not judge me in anyway. The home environment is also comforting and calm and a lovely place to be. It is great to know that Dee is always there. Such an amazing and inspirational lady. Thank You.
Dee helped me when I was feeling at a really low point. We really wanted a baby – our friends were all pregnant or just given birth – not us. The techniques that she gave me helped each time I had to go to see a doctor – I was able to go in feeling that I could soon be joining my friends rather than certain that I wouldn’t.
She told me that I needed to allow myself to hope – hadn't been doing this – as, if my head was convinced that being pregnant wouldn’t happen, it surely wouldn’t. I’m pregnant!! – and going to do the Hypnobirthing course with Dee!
PS from Dee – this client had a gorgeous little boy weighing in at 7lbs 6oz.
