'Rita has really helped me as I was stuck in a cycle of negative thinking. With her perceptive counselling skills at the start of each session she would very quickly get to the heart of my difficulty and I felt totally understood, she would just get it. Rita would gently introduce a new perspective on the situation which enabled me to see things more positively and gave me lots to think about between sessions.
During the hypnosis such a vivid picture was painted with the words she used that I found it easy to relax and go into a hypnotic state.
As well as totally relaxing me I felt as though something had shifted and I felt more positive and excited about the future. I would find that different ideas and solutions would pop into my head between sessions and I generally felt lighter. After using the rewind technique I found that memories and situations that had previously haunted me and coloured my life had completely lost their power as I just didn’t think about them anymore. If I tested it and tried they were all disjointed and almost appeared as if they had happened to someone else, there was no emotion attached to them.
Rita has made a great difference to my life, I feel more hopeful, happier and lighter than I have for many years and I would have no hesitation in seeing her again if I needed clarity and a new perspective on a situation in the future.'

'Being a bit of a control freak I wasn't sure whether I would respond to hypnotherapy but I was desperate to get help with the anxiety I had developed as a result of a medical condition I have - so.........I went in determined to 'give it my best'.
Five sessions on, the results have been amazing, I really feel that the sessions have made a major difference to my wellbeing, my anxiety levels (which were affecting everyday situations), have improved dramatically and I am continuing to get back on track and get on with my life. The strange thing is, it just happens, there is no effort involved each day so the transition from being in a constant state of anxiety to just getting on with it is so smooth you don't know it is happening.
I would recommend hypnotherapy to anyone who feels they need help with any of the area's Rita specialises in, the process itself is extremely relaxing and I can only liken it to a really good massage - but inside your head instead of your body - 90 minutes of deep relaxation!
For those worried about the commitment I would reassure you that there is no pressure to book another appointment, it is your choice depending on how you feel. I personally have made excellent progress and Rita wasn't expecting me to book another session but I am electing to gradually lengthen the time between sessions as I believe I had allowed my anxiety to continue too long before seeking help, so for me, occasional 'top ups' are what I am aiming for.'

'Thanks Rita for my ONE hypnotherapy session helping me with my fear of heights. It certainly seems to have worked. Bridges in France, no problem and this weekend I even walked on the Chirk aqueduct in North Wales again no problem. Thank you very much.'
'Rita is warm, understanding and genuine and with her help, I gained a great deal of insight into an issue I have lived with for many years. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others. Thanks again.'
'I've been meaning to write to you for a while but never got around to it. Anyway, I wanted to thank you for your help with improving my confidence, self awareness and assertiveness; I feel in a much better place and my manager recently commented that I seem a different person - more confident and assertive - which is fantastic to hear.
I still have more to do and continue to practice the skills you taught me but the sessions with you have definitely helped me.
I wasn't really sure what to expect before we started the hypnotherapy sessions but I was a little anxious beforehand if I'm honest. That soon went though as soon as I met with you; you have a really lovely style, come across extremely understanding but not judgemental which put me at ease within a few minutes and made me feel really comfortable with talking to you about my anxieties. I also found you very professional and down to earth.
As for the hypnotherapy itself, the sessions were really relaxing and the results speak for themselves!'

'Rita Clare is a fantastic therapist. She helped me with weight loss and another sensitive matter for which I needed some help. Throughout the treatment she was extremely understanding and caring and always put me at ease.
The hypnotherapy she gave me has enabled me to take control of my eating habits which I think is key to managing my weight in the future. And she has helped me to greatly reduce the anguish which unhappy memories were causing me.
The sessions were very relaxing and therapeutic. I would not hesitate to recommend Rita to others considering her help.'
'I decided to see Rita after an unpleasant conference experience, which had left me with a feeling of failure and anxiety about public speaking. My primary goal was to develop techniques which would allow me to relax whilst presenting, focus my mind in stressful situation, and increase my confidence.
Initial meeting with Rita allowed me to identify the source of my problems, including: high levels of self-consciousness, anxiety and low confidence. Rita has designed a programme of five hypnotherapy sessions, which was tailored to my specific needs. She helped me to develop tools that enabled me to feel much more comfortable as a public speaker and significantly reduced the levels of anxiety I was previously experiencing.
I use these tools on a daily basis, both in my professional and personal life. I implemented the techniques during my practical driving test. I passed first time and during the test I felt relaxed and in complete control. In my work life, I use them before every presentation and I find public speaking a lot less daunting. During my presentations I am much calmer and a lot more aware of the situation. I feel in control and I am able to comfortably engage with my audience.
Sessions with Rita allowed me to put bad experience behind and focus on positive actions I can take to move forward. I developed a much more positive attitude towards public speaking knowing that there are tools at my disposal to make it easier. Now, I look forward to my next opportunity to present.'
'just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the hypnotherapy I had with Rita. I always felt very safe & calm in her presence, and really looked forward to each session as I made progress. Her voice is perfect for making anybody relax, even someone as restless as myself. I learned something new about myself each time and I definitely feel that the hypnotherapy was a hugely positive experience that made a big difference to how I think & feel and how I live my life now. Thank you so much Rita!'
'Like many people I was sceptical about hypnotherapy, but have given it a go for the first time. I wondered if I would be sent running off down the road impersonating a chicken but it's certainly nothing like stage hypnotists! Rita was very professional in her assessment, reassuring me of any concerns I had and tailoring the hypnotherapy to me. Due to my inquisitive nature I was intrigued to know what had happened but to be honest it just felt like I nodded off whilst she was talking to me and then woke up a while later forgetting what Rita had said to me. Oh, and she has a soothing voice which helps! Thanks Rita.'
'Many Thanks Rita for the hypnotherapy, it really turned my perceptions around and I feel so content with the tasks I have to face. You are a natural born hypnotherapist with the perfect voice and so approachable. You made dealing with difficult situations very simple. Many many thanks Dianne xxxx.'
