“Just a note to say a massive Thank you. I have just had my final meeting with Lucy. She was brilliant. Professional, massively knowledgable, explained things so clearly, understanding, sympathetic but most of all great sense of humour! I thoroughly enjoyed meeting her and have already benefitted from her words of wisdom  and helpful strategies. Thank you so much for recommending her”.   Rachel | Teacher | Wiltshire

“Lucy shows an insightful, professional approach to hypnotherapy, leading me to try to focus on the positives in my life and my abilities. Her nursing background is evident in the quiet, caring way she deals with issues and the relaxing sessions in her calm clinic space allow me to look at things I do from a different perspective.”  Jane | Oxfordshire
