    TESTIMONIALS
    If you’re interested to see what other clients have to say about the results of working with me, here you’ll a find a small selection of my testimonials. I have removed their personal details to maintain confidentiality.

    Negative Emotions, Stress & Self-Esteem
    - “My programme with Diane has enabled me to look forwards again and to actually feel well and in control. I am now able to think things through differently and not panic. The [EFT] technique immediately calms me and I am able to see other peoples’ views better. The technique is great – I have learned to control my fears and emotions, and I sleep better. I learned how I can be in control. I feel well for the first time in 2 years and I feel positive about the future.” Retired

    - “I visited Diane twice in the space of a few days. In that short time, the work we did changed the way I think about a number of difficult experiences. There is absolutely no doubt that the work with Diane has completely removed these difficulties of real benefit to me.” Senior Engineering Manager

    Panic &
  • Phobias

  • - “When I first came to see you, I was feeling very anxious and depressed and had massive issues with claustrophobia – So much that I was unable to go into if I couldn’t see the exit, and I was unable to go up or down more than one flight of stairs anywhere. You allowed me to get rid of all the negative, illogical thought processes and behaviour patterns which were restricting me from doing the things I wanted to be able to do and achieve. After just a couple of sessions, my phobia and anxiety had completely disappeared, and I felt like someone had just given me my life back. I took the kids to the pantomime, and we parked in a multi-storey car park, AND we used the lift to go down to the pavement level –and – to go back up to our level!!! I couldn’t believe I had done it – and I felt nothing at all – no fear, no panic, no stress – but weirdly, I felt excited and then really, really proud of myself. I now know that this will never be a problem again for me and it feels sooooooooo good! I am now able to realise any plans that I make with the kids, I am much more confident at work, I feel really in control of my life and I can’t believe how much of a difference you have made to me. I really cannot thank you enough.” Sales Support Administror

    IBS
    - “I wasn’t aware that things would change for me so quickly and I’m very pleased with the outcome.” Customer Service Assistant

    Anxiety
    - “From suffering from real anxiety and not wanting to spend time alone, suffering loss of appetite causing weight loss, and lack of sleep I am now back to full strength, enjoying my life to the full again. I have a great appetite again and the weight is piling back on. My fitness is back, I’m enjoying the gym again, lots of walking and playing squash with my husband. All in all, I am really positive and this is all down to Diane’s help along with my determination to get myself back to my great and happy life! A massive thanks, Diane, and I fully recommend you to anyone who needs your helps.” Housewife

    Anxiety & High Blood Pressure
    - “I suddenly woke up one day to a very strange and unusual situation in my life. For the first time in my life I was suffering from a panicky sensation that caused me anxiety issues. After visiting the GP for more times than I can remember, I really wasn’t getting anywhere. After numerous tests, all that was on offer from the GP was anti-depressants, a path I did not agree with and was not willing to accept. I had two counselling courses and visited another hypnotherapist before visiting Diane. Whilst the others had helped in a small way, it was only after seeing Diane that my symptoms really disappeared. Diane has obviously dealt with similar issues before so you do not get the sense of being alone in your symptoms. The work we did had a remarkable impact on my state of mind. The understanding and help I received was invaluable, and I achieved what I wanted in a relatively short space of time. I would certainly recommend Diane to anyone who thinks they may need help, and I have recommended Diane to colleagues and friends.” Manager

    - “Diane was very kind and helpful to me at a time when I was desperate to find a way of coping with my nerves prior to going into hospital. My operation was delayed because of my blood pressure soaring due to anxiety. I must confess that I had doubts about hypnotherapy, but the first consultation dispelled these. Diane helped me to calm down and lower my blood pressure.” Retired

    Fear & Confidence
    - “Working with Diane is such a positive and rewarding experience; I overcame a [20 year] fear of driving. Within a very short time I am now able to drive confidently and calmly on a daily basis and my life has changed for the better.” Full-Time Mum

    Smoking Cessation
    - “Diane’s approach is very refreshing…Immediately I felt relaxed and comfortable in her presence…She asked the right questions and demonstrated a methodical style and competence in assisting me to stop smoking. One of the most useful things were the techniques she taught me to combat cravings…It was a complete success and I highly recommend her services.” Managing Director

Brooklyn, Liverpool, November 18 2018

I was age 17 when I first went to see Diane seeking help for my eating disorder. I initially had weekly 1 hour sessions and then slowly reduced in frequency the more I progressed. Each session I received I found very useful and focused on my problem. I felt even after the first session that Diane knew my problem as well as I did, going back into it\s potential roots etc. Her attentive listening and approachable manner allowed me to express my difficulties, which aided with her understanding and hence her ability to help me. A piece of advice for anyone seeking help- ’’Be as open and honest as you can- that way you will get the most help.’’ Diane certainly encourages you to do this with her friendly manner. Each session was also supported by material that I could use as reminders and work on in between sessions. This is something I keep on hand to help on in times of need. Also, Diane never failed to remind you that she was only a call away should you ever need her. Always very happy to help. The skills I learnt from Diane in term of coping mechanisms I have found can be applied to varies areas of life too. Essential skills for life I think! A friendly, knowledgeable, non-judgemental lady I would describe Diane to be. I feel so very grateful to have met her and received her help. I feel I would be lost without it!

DS,, Derbyshire, September 11 2018

I went to see Diane after personal recommendation and reading her leaflet. I have had counselling for a long time and although it has helped enormously it wasn’t helping me deal with many of the emotions that I was feeling. I have had unresolved family issues from childhood and growing up that have resulted in me carrying around a huge amount of guilt for many years. Working with Diane made me realise that the problems that I initially went to see her about weren’t the ones that were causing me the issues. Diane has the ability to identify the root cause of the problem and in my case it was events that happened in my childhood and young adulthood that were affecting the way I view things today. Diane is very easy to talk to and I felt completely at ease with her. She is understanding, patient and non-judgemental – she never makes you feel that you are saying something silly. The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) works. I don’t know why or how but there is no doubt that it works. I did the technique with Diane during the sessions but I also now have the skills to use it any time and any place, and I do. I noticed a change in myself from the first session and it’s continued throughout the treatment. Other people have noticed it too. I am much more self-aware and can now deal with things rather than letting them take over my life. I have a much more positive outlook on life. I would highly recommend Diane to anyone. I am so glad that I found her and made the decision to work with her. The front of her leaflet says that EFT can change your life and it does!

Janet, Sheffield, August 05 2018

I contacted Diane after strong recommendation from several people. They had all sought help for very different issues and were all very different personalities. I figured I simply had to see whether she could help me. I felt completely frozen in life after the sudden death of my husband three years earlier in somewhat extreme circumstances. I could accept that grief would remain in some form forever but my anger and distress at the injustice that followed my husbands death was blocking me from moving forward. Initially I couldn’t accept that the EFT technique could possibly help me but very quickly I began to feel differently. Dianes ability to pick up on key issues and grasp such an accurate understanding of my situation was a massive comfort and gave me much confidence to go with the therapy. What can I say except "it works" ! I still cant believe how much better I feel. It is as if a weight has been released from me and I can now move forward. My confidence has increased and I feel able to try and build a different and new life now. Thank you Diane.

Jane, Dronfield , April 03 2018

I was at my wits end when i first went to Diane. Previously a ’together’ and highly competent individual a series of unfortunate events over a number of years had left me suffering from acute post traumatic stress, anxiety and deep depression and I was finding it extremely difficult to function on a day to day basis- symptoms included pains across my chest, muscle aches and tension, episodes of palpitations and shaking, insomnia, difficulty concentrating, feeling sick and headaches. I had lost a large amount of weight, cried a lot of the time and was very unwell, plus had withdrawn from social contact, including friends and family. My doctor had prescribed anti depressants which I vehemently did not want to take, as it went against all my principles of natural health, which compounded my stress. Diane was my ’last resort’- I had exhausted a whole host of alternative therapies, including CBT, and had totally lost all hope of feeling well and ’the old me’ again. Diane’s approach was friendly, professional and targeted. I liked the fact that a pre-questionnaire meant progress was made from the 1st session without having to spend ages talking about all my issues. The results (which started kicking in by the 3rd session) were astounding and within weeks I was feeling so much better. This just continued and my progress was breathtaking, so much so my doctor asked for Diane’s details for other patients. I still don’t really understand how it all works but to be honest I really don’t care! The results speak for themselves and I cannot thank Diane enough for how she has helped me get back to me again. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Emma, Buxton, January 15 2018

I felt like a new person after my therapy with Diane. When I first started the treatment I was suffering from high levels of anxiety and panic in relation to flying and a fear of airsickness. I was signed off from work with anxiety and had a hopeless outlook for a forthcoming flight. After just one session I returned to work, felt confident that the treatment would work and started to feel like I would finally crack this fear after 11 years. By the end of the therapy I was a completely different person. I took the flight and dealt calmly and confidently with things that would usually trigger panic and anxiety. I learned so much about myself and my fears through Diane’s professional, friendly and empathetic approach. Even through this treatment was for a specific fear I feel that it will help me greatly in the future should I experience anxiety and panic again in other areas of my life

Rebecca, Buxton, November 29 2017

Having tried CBT before I had decided that it wasn’t for me as it wasn’t focused enough and didn’t give me techniques to deal with my anxiety that I could use on my own. Then after finding Diane and having sessions using emotional freedom technique I find that life at university is much easier for me as I have a way of dealing with my anxiety that I can continue to use in the future even after the sessions have ended. Would highly recommend.

Rebecca,, High Peak, June 13 2017

The work completed with Diane has enabled me to overcome a lifelong fear [of needles]. This was preventing me from progressing in my career goals. Previously, travel to ‘exotic’ locations was simply out of the question due to a flat refusal to have an inoculation. Since working with Diane, I have been able to have 9 injections that will enable me to travel anywhere in the world, and have subsequently got a new job - A great achievement!

joan, chesterfield, May 30 2017

It’s always a gamble investing in a therapy especially when one is simply following an online search. This was a hugely satisfying investment after decades of unsuccessful attempts to solve an issue.

, Buxton, January 10 2017

I had reached the age of 50 and still had the nagging feeling that I wasn’t living the life I wanted. I had a fabulous husband, great kids but events from my past still affected me and held me back. I did an intensive course with Diane over two long sessions and I have not looked back. I did the sessions over a month a go and each day I still amaze myself, not only by the things I achieve, but more importantly with the amount of self love and self respect that I now have. If you are considering and thinking about sessions with Diane then bite the bullet and book in. You won’t look back.

Roy, Chesterfield, December 08 2016

After over 16 years of heavy drinking I finally admitted that I am an acoholic. Having been told that my health was suffering, but probably recoverable, I took the decision, with God’s guidance, to seek help. Before meeting Diane I had no real understanding of why I drank and what the underlying causes of my addiction are. My first meeting with Diane was on 18th February 2016 - I have not drunk alcohol since that day. With Diane’s help I not only stopped drinking but also exposed some of the underlying concerns which had affected my life for over 30years. Using Hypnotherapy to tackle my alcohol addiction was just part of the start of my recovery. With Diane’s help I learned a series of techniques to relax and meditate - I now have a good toolbox of these with which to help live my life. I think it is fair to say that not all of the techniques that Diane offers will suit everyone, but once you are open to trying, and admit there is an issue to tackle, Diane will work with you to find the best ways to do so. My own initial thoughts were that a few sessions of hypnotherapy was all I needed; in reality I found benefit from other therapies too. Diane explained this at the start, and her skills, knowledge and ability to identify appropriate strategies for me were spot on. Thank you for helping save my life.

Pat , Buxton, December 01 2016

I smoked 20 a day for 50 years and after 1 session of 2 1/2 hours i have not had one single puff. Diane was very friendly and put me at ease straigjt away i would recommend her whole heartedly

Ann, Chesterfield, April 06 2016

For more than twenty years I have suffered from periods of deep sadness and anxiety. I have had help from a number of counsellors over these periods, I read all of the self-help books and had fantastic support from my family, but none of the help I had been given was able to make a big difference for me. I had resigned myself to the fact that this was how I was and that I would always have to endure these awful times every few months. This was my situation when a friend recommended that I should go and see Diane. After a couple of sessions I knew that I was thinking differently and feeling differently. It is incredible how quickly all those years of deep-seated negative feelings have been overcome in such a short period. I am a new person and I know the change is fundamental and permanent. It’s great to be happy! I would absolutely recommend Diane to anyone who is suffering as I was. Ann, Derbyshire

Kelly, Buxton, March 30 2016

I started working with Diane after I had become a parent. I have always been a worrier and cautious type but since having my son it really had escalated. I had a course of 8 hours of Emotional Freedom Therapy. My biggest fears and emotions were corrected within the first session. I felt freedom within my head and a sense of relax for the first time in a couple of months. We tapped on a number of things throughout the course of treatment and all have had very positive results. I think I will always be a worrier but now feel confident to have been giving the tools to be able to free these worries myself. I would highly recommend Diane, I feel so much more positive on the future and parenthood.

Musician, , September 23 2014

I have been to Diane for a few years now on and off for performance anxiety. She is a genius at getting to the root of what is troubling you and sorts it out extremely quickly. Her down to earth and relaxing manner makes you feel at ease and she is a constant source of reassurance. I would wholeheartedly recommend Diane to anyone out there suffering from anxiety.

Michelle , Chesterfield, June 10 2014

Iwent to see Diane with ingrained emotional issues and felt trapped.I signed up for 6 hours and she used the emotional freedom technique which included tapping on certain acupressure points as she talked you through your answers to her questionaire in a way that your mind clicked with what was bothering you and you came up with your own answers. I had very fast results with this it was unbelievable, still is. By being honest with myself and Diane and working hard at home, writing things down and using the tapping things started to click and connect. I am now confident about my abilities and began changing things that were not working after the first 2 hour session.Diane can help you find a way forward if you seriously want change and are willing to be honest and work hard. I will always be grateful to her she has helped me to change my outlook on life in 6 hours.

Sue, Glossop, November 17 2013

I went to see Diane after suffering pain in my back for over 9 years, it had got to the stage were it was affecting my life and doctors had told me that I had to live with it... During several appointments with Diane I slowly started to realise that areas of my life that I thought I had control in were affecting me in many ways. I had started to worry about the way people thought of me and whether I had been deemed as a bad person due to the decisions I had to make over the past few years. Within a short space of time, Diane made the pain disappear, initially the pain went for a short space of time then gradually as more of my personal issues were ironed out the pain left me completely! I now see things in a totally different light & Diane has made me realise that pain can evolve through taking on to much in life instead of doing what I can in situations when I can... Changed my life forever, I owe Diane so much...

Richard, , November 13 2013

Diane is a very able and experienced therapist with considerable personal integrity, drawing on a broad range of therapeutic and wider skills. She has helped me to resolve health, lifestyle and bereavement issues and has done so in a way that has been grounded in reality and has expanded my own mindset. Her style challenges conventional thinking, whilst providing a safe space in which to explore difficult personal issues. In particular, I have found Emotional Freedom Technique, and work drawing on Eastern and Western spirituality, to have had a hugely beneficial impact. I would recommend Diane’s work to friends, family and colleagues.

Jonathan, Chesterfield, November 13 2013

I struggled with various issues concerning my personal and business life. Basically I had been fairly well battered by life and did not know where to turn to. In the first session we were able to identify one of the main issues concerning my personal life that was also having a serious impact on my business and resolve it. In the follow up sessions we identified and created successful strategies to advance both my personal and business. I had never heard of the The Emotional Freedom Technique before meeting Diane and I admit I was initially skeptical. The skepticism lasted for about 20 minutes. My goodness does it work. What really impressed me professionally with Diane is her ability to focus on issues, identify the cause and then guide me through the resolution process. I should also comment on her willingness to go the extra mile and her sincere interest in ensuring that I carried out the strategies. I cannot recommend Diane highly enough.

janet, mellor, November 06 2013

I went to Diane when I was feeling defeated about a lot of things. One was my inability to lose weight and keep it off . I’d had a lifetime of dieting to remain the same weight. After some careful questioning Diane put my thinking in order . It’s like having a spring clean of the mind - and with Diane’s help I threw the rubbish out and feel more positive about being able to lose weight.

Donna, Sheffield, November 05 2013

I struggled to come to terms with the end of a relationship. I tried the usual coping mechanisms - shopping, holidays, work, even moving to another part of the country! I read self help books, tried cognitive behavioural therapy, tried counselling but after three years I was still on antidepressants and was unable to overcome my emotional attachment. I was sad and tearful most of the time. From my first telephone conversation with Diane I felt more positive. During my sessions with her, I have been impressed by her ability to identify and address the key issues which I had not always recognised myself. The Emotional Freedom Technique has proved to be extremely effective - I don’t understand how it works but it does! It is a tool that I will be able to use with different challenges and in other scenarios. Diane is professional, articulate, sensitive, perceptive and very good at what she does. After a couple of sessions, people started commenting on how different I seemed. And I really feel different - stronger, happy, more confident and looking forward to the future. I have made changes in my life and am in no doubt that I would not have been able to do so without having worked with Diane. I am so grateful for the support Diane has given me and would recommend her service without hesitation. It is the best investment I have ever made in my own physical and emotional wellbeing.
