How would you like your life to feel?

Imagine a future free from anxiety, phobias or trauma. If you are struggling with anxiety, stress, lack of self-esteem, addiction, gripped by depression, or even facing a nerve-wracking driving test, this vision may seem completely impossible. But with the right guidance, you can bring your future dreams to reality.

Motivational Weight Loss Programme – This really works!
February 8, 2018

I was trapped in a cycle of over eating and lack of exercise resulting in weight gain, low mood & energy and poor self-esteem. I had completely lost the ability to motivate myself out of this miserable situation, despite being aware of the associated and increasing risks to my health. Barbara took the time to completely assess and understand my situation, offering me support, motivation and a unique personalised nutrition and lifestyle programme. This, together with hypnotherapy, self hypnosis, motivational tools and daily contact, enabled me to break free from my lethargy. As a result, not only did I lose weight, but experienced a truly positive outlook and regained my self belief. Thank you, Barbara!

I am very grateful to Barbara Shead for bringing my health to the next level.

Hypnotherapy has helped me to build up my confidence and also improve my sense of well being and sleep patterns. The changes are not very dramatic soon after the session but it will show when you most need it, in those moments in our daily life when you are most challenged. I am very grateful to Barbara Shead for bringing my health to the next level.

Just wanted to drop you a line to say Thank You so much... following our session of BWRT last week I managed to drive part way home on the motorway from Manchester. This is a huge step forward….I felt relaxed and no sign of any panic attack.

I have been driving locally and again feel very relaxed and in control – really appreciate all the support you have given me.
If I feel I need any further assistance I will definitely be in touch – thanks again..

Healthy Nutrition for a Healthy Mind. “You are what you eat”, as the age-old saying goes. Did you read those words, then immediately think about how you look?  If you did, don’t worry.  This is a common response for a lot of people.  Many of us believe that as long as...
