Elizabeth and 10 yr old Alice – Anxiety

Thanks for everything Anne.  People keep on commenting on how Alice and I have changed especially when dealing with challenging situations.

A few words from Alice:

Before I came to see Anne, I had a lot of trouble getting to sleep at night.  I felt that I was worried about everything and that I couldn’t cope with my anxieties.  One day I just turned to my mum and said that I needed some help with overcoming  my worries.  That was when I made the decision to come and see Anne, one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.  When I first came to see Anne I wasn’t sure how it was going to work but the magic of The Thrive Programme started to work it’s magic.

Now I feel that I can achieve absolutely anything that I put my mind to.  It hasn’t stopped me worrying completely but now I can deal with them and think nothing more of it!  One of the biggest changes is that I can sleep for the whole night without any ‘interruptions!’.  Anne has helped me massively throughout the programme and I very thankful for it.

Since The Thrive Programme I have stood up in the school remembrance assembly and I did a reading with some of my friends.  One thing that I am proud of is the fact that I no longer think about what other people think of me and I focus on the positives of life.  I can deal with my worries and my anxieties.  I can Thrive!

Natasha and 12 yr old Tia – Anxiety

I’m writing to you today as I want to say a huge thank you for helping both of us so much.

When my daughter (aged 12) and I came to you she was having anxiety issues that were preventing her from enjoying life on a daily basis, through so many irrational fears and beliefs she had, that were impacting on her daily life at school and on weekends.  We both went through the Thrive Programme together, and I’m so glad we did, as in order for my daughter to deal with her anxieties I had to go through the programme too, and deal with my own anxieties.  I can honestly say although I was sceptical at first, it’s the best programme I’ve ever done, after years of therapy on and off for anxiety, “The Thrive Programme” is the only thing that’s worked for me, because it makes so much sense in every way.

Anne you’re so rational, and honest, and I completely trusted you to show my daughter and I the way to see things differently, by looking at the ” bigger picture” and by taking off our mud coloured glasses.

Thrive really worked in so many ways, my daughter’s gone from being, unsociable to sociable, sad to happy, unconfident to confident and will now go to friends, stay all day without calling me once, as well as going off shopping with a friend, and being fine when we went away for the night!

We’ve both experienced such huge life changes, my only regret is that I didn’t come and see you earlier.

Anyway we both want to say thank you so much for everything, even when it got hard at times, you were there to get us through it, I will recommend you to everyone, as what you teach is life changing, and you are fantastic at what you do, you are the “Rolls Royce” of therapists.

Anne thank you again from both of us.

Love and hugs and kisses
Natasha and Tia xx

India – Sleep Anxiety

“Hi Anne

We are all good thank you, and dare I say, India continues to improve!! She is now normally asleep when we go up to bed, which was unheard of before!! Consequently we are all much more relaxed about bedtime and Kyle and I no longer feel under pressure to go to bed just so that she will go to sleep!! We have also noticed changes in other areas, especially one that India mentioned herself last night….she was revising last night for two exams today, Geography and Science and she just suddenly said ‘ do you know Mum, I don’t feel at all anxious about tests and exams anymore, that must be because I went to see Anne!!’ So Anne we cannot thank you enough for what you did for our whole family and especially India!!”

And a few words from India herself:

“I just wanted to tell you that I am feeling much better now and I think your treatment has really helped me! I don’t feel as anxious as I used to about going to bed. This means I am getting more sleep at night and am feeling much better in the morning and especially at school. Mum has probably told you that I had a little blip last Tuesday, which was because Mum went out with her friends and as I’ve told you in one of my appointments I feel better about going to bed and to sleep when both my mum and dad are here at home! But that is the only blip I have had in the last three weeks, which makes me feel good because I know that I have done really well and in return Mum and Dad will do something nice for me back!

It’s been really nice and helpful coming to see you.”

Jack – 8 Years Old – Anxiety

“Jack is doing well, no nail biting (picking them at times I think) but generally we have white nails for the first time in years. Generally in himself he is much, much happier, school seems to be going better in that his self esteem seems much better. His rugby has improved so much in the past two weeks that the coaches asked David and I separately what we had done to Jack!

Many thanks for your help.”

D – 10 Years Old – Anxiety

“I went to see Anne because I would get really worried about going to stay away from my mum and dad. I would feel so nervous that I would be sick. Anne was very friendly and I was able to talk to her about how I felt.  I feel more confident and less worried about everything. It has really helped me.”

Miss OP – 11 Years Old – Emetophobia – Fear of Being Sick

“Hi Anne,

My daughter continues to improve and feels lots better, I think its true to say that at the moment it is just not an issue for her so I can’t thank you enough.

She has done a little testimonial in her own words which she is happy for you to put on your website.

“I went to see Anne because I was worried about being sick, and other people being sick. It was starting to affect me at school and it was getting worse. I had two sessions with Anne, I did not know what to expect but after the first session I felt a bit better. I continued to improve over the next 3 weeks, and I was much more relaxed. I went to see Anne again for a second session. I now feels loads better and am really looking forward to my new school. Thank you Anne”

Lisa – Anxiety & Stomach Aches

“I am 13 and have had tummy aches for over 4 years. I have been to plenty of doctors to try and find the reasons why I get them and I have undergone many unpleasant tests in hospital. However, after every test and every check up the doctors told me that there is nothing wrong with me and therefore I do not get tummy aches when I know that I do.

I got a recommendation to start treatment and found Anne on the internet. Before I came to Anne I was not sure how I could be helped, but I was prepared to try anything to help my tummy. After my first session with Anne I felt a bit better. In the next session Anne and I did something called the Dream technique. Since then I have not had a tummy ache and I have not taken off a day of school.

Anne has really helped me think positively to overcome my pain and I am very grateful to her.”
