I have visited Diane twice now. The first time for something that was bothering me about falling into a behaviour pattern I wasn’t happy with, I wanted practical tools to use and practical ways of changing. She taught me to tap and gave me some words of wisdom which have been so helpful with adjusting to the role of being a mum. However - what I didn’t expect was that our last tapping session touched on something I did not consider to be an issue, but felt very effective. As a consequence my outlook has changed, my confidence has increased, I am happier, feel more like the person I want to be. I attended a job interview shortly after and had a very positive experience (landing one of my favourite jobs yet). I have recently visited Diane again, specifically for thinking about my next career move. The sessions we have done have felt very effective, we have covered a lot of ground and I believe they will make a big difference when I want to make the next move. I use tapping now every so often in my day to day life and I believe it to be life changing. I am so happy that I have had time with Diane. Diane has been the perfect person for her role: kind, non-judgemental, supportive, professional, warm, friendly, encouraging and I would recommend her. One thing that really impressed me the first time, was that I had booked six sessions, and she refunded me the last one as we felt we had covered what needed to be covered. I really like how we have worked together, being very solution focussed and solving a ’problem’, not just talking about things.
I approached Diane as I was stuck in a negative way of thinking about a past relationship, which was making me extremely unhappy. I was struggling everyday with thoughts, feelings and regrets, which I had tried and failed to address on my own for a couple of years (counselling, self-help books etc). I was frightened that I would not be able to free myself from this thinking, but I feel completely different now. It took a few weeks to work through things but I felt from the first week that this would work for me. Diane is approachable, warm, and clearly very knowledgeable in terms of psychology. I felt able to talk openly and honestly with Diane. I never felt that she would judge me for actions I had taken in my life which were wrong choices at the time. I liked the fact she was direct and insightful in her approach. Unlike other therapies, this gave practical solutions to the issues that arose and techniques to change how I felt. In the course of a few weeks I have gained insight into what triggered the problems, I am no longer ruminating over the past, have regained perspective, and I am able to focus on what I want from life moving forward. The sessions have also helped me to focus on what matters in my life right now. I had stopped sharing my feelings with my husband - We are now talking more openly with each other and enjoying each others company again. He has commented that I am laughing at things again. The outcome of working with Diane has been extremely positive and I feel liberated.
Diane is the most understanding and calming presence to have listen to you. The work I did with her and the tools she has given me have changed my mindset in such a positive way. Instead of continuously thinking I am the problem, I was able to understand who I am and how to deal with myself in certain situations. I am now able to work on this myself and be confident in who I am. Most importantly, Diane has helped me to learn about myself, understand myself, and love myself. Personally, for me there was not a better fit. Thank you so much!
Working with Diane has been very useful and has massively impacted my life. After struggling with anxiety and lack of self-confidence Diane has helped me providing me with many solutions to cope with my anxiety and as a result made me feel more like myself again. I have returned back to being able to complete everyday tasks without the fear that I will have a panic attack. We worked on putting bad past experiences to bed in order for me to move forward with my life and re-navigate bad patterns and habits. I would highly recommend Diane to anyone struggling as it is a completely safe space with no feelings of judgement and has really helped me.
I went to Diane to resolve emotional blockages from my past that were both causing pain and hyperhidrosis. In using her techniques during the sessions and continuing it myself at home, I feel lighter from no longer carrying the excess baggage and the sweating stopped. I’m so glad that the issue was so simply resolved and with such a wonderful therapist. At no point did I feel judged or under pressure, it was such a calming environment for sorting through fairly traumatic experiences. As a younger woman at first I was apprehensive, I didn’t think I had a right to feel I was struggling, given I hadn’t had 30 years of it. The sessions made me realise that therapy can be for anyone of any age no matter who you are, this experience worked wonders for me. I cannot thank Diane enough!
I first started seeing Diane quite a few years back, as I was suffering with terrible anxiety following the recent death of my Nanny. Diane used a technique called EFT, which is an incredible way to accept your feelings and emotions, I had quite a few sessions with her, as it opened up quite a lot more, that I needed to talk about. I then went back to see her not long after the death of my Grandad, as my anxiety was again at it’s highest, and we used the same technique for a couple of weeks, this allowed me to think more positively & process my thoughts. Most recently, I have been struggling with sleep, even though I am tired, when I get into bed, it had become the norm to not sleep, so I would automatically tell myself ‘you’re not going to sleep’ so I would try my best to sleep, which doesn’t work at all. I had hypnotherapy exactly 7 days ago and I can safely say, my sleep has been much better, I have been sleeping all the way through, and one evening I even slept for 10 hours straight. I feel so much more positive, energetic and alive. Thank you Diane, your help, guidance and support is greatly appreciated.
Dear Diane, I wanted to thank you for your work preparing me for the recent operation on my tongue - which was completely successful. I had the 8 hour operation at the Hallamshire and was able to walk into the Operating Department in a very calm manner. I then spent 12 days on the ward with umpteen tubes going into and out of my body but, again, I was able to cope without panicking, even with the tracheostomy. Thinking back to how I was when I first met you it is amazing to see how much your support helped me through such a physical, psychological and emotional challenge and I cannot thank you enough for your empathy and technical skills. Kindest Regards, Bob
Having struggled with exam based anxiety for nearly my entire school life, I came out of therapy with Diane feeling confident in myself and having a full toolkit of techniques to deal with panic attacks and general anxiety. I was expecting to really dislike therapy but actually, after my first session with Diane, I looked forward to it every week! Diane was so helpful, understanding and friendly. Our sessions were very pleasant and I always came out of them feeling much more positive and happy. The change in my mindset was a lot quicker and more drastic than I had ever imagined. My family and friends noticed a huge difference. I would recommend Diane to anyone and cannot thank her enough.
Dealing with difficult family members had raised my blood pressure to worrying levels and was causing me anxiety and depression when I found Diane on-line. I immediately felt at ease with her and was amazed at how completely she understood exactly what I was going through. Our six sessions gave me hope for the future and restored my belief in myself as a strong, capable person. I feel so calm most of the time that I don’t often use the tapping technique, but know it will always work when I need it. I feel energised and have lost ten pounds since our sessions! I can’t recommend Diane highly enough.
I had only heard about EFT through a work colleague and was not sure I really believed it could work. However, I trusted Diane’s experience and professionalism and was really impressed. I went to Diane because I was suffering from anxiety related to an up-coming long distance trip abroad. I was also suffering with an ear-worm for the first time in my life which was connected to my anxiety levels. I was amazed by Diane’s skill in homing in on the key issues and and showing me where emotions and thought patterns had got ‘stuck’. Practising EFT and having the sessions with Diane gave me almost immediate results! I felt better very quickly and was consequently able to travel and enjoy my trip in a way I could not have imagined. The ear worm resolved too. Thank you so much Diane - the work with you was enormously helpful.
I was diagnosed with cancer which required a major 8 hour operation. The thought of the operation terrified me to the point where I was seriously considering not going ahead with it. In desperation I wondered whether hypnotherapy might help me and looked up to find whether there were any practitioners locally. I was sceptical because I had hear stories of charlatans but arranged to see Diane based on references on the website. My experience was extremely positive. Diane used EFT, NLP and hypnotherapy techniques over 4 sessions in a very relaxed and comfortable environment . As a result I approached the pre-operative assessment with confidence and was able to walk into the operating suite at the Hallamshire hospital on the morning of the operation with no fear. The confidence I gained from my sessions from Diane has also enabled me to approach my rehabilitation in a very positive fashion.
I approached Diane to help reduce anxiety as I would panic about needing toilet access. I found her professional and approachable and even after one session I felt confident that we could improve my situation. She was honest and patient and I felt safe throughout. We did EFT and this has become a great tool for me to use. The beauty is that I don’t have to use it very often as I feel much calmer, but it is a good tool for me to bring out when required. It has been a year since I had my sessions with Diane and can honestly say that my life has improved, my mind is steadier around this issue and I am so pleased to experience these positive changes. I have no hesitation in recommending Diane. I wish I hadn’t waited so long to get help.
I have been on skiing holidays for years with my family, but due to various reasons year after year, I lost all of my confidence and really stopped wanting to go on the annual holiday. This meant that I was not enjoying the precious time with my family. I had heard of others having therapy, whether it be relaxation or hypnosis etc., to help with fears and confidence around skiing and other issues. I did my research and came across Diane, thank goodness, the work we did together was amazing and helped me to begin enjoying my holiday again. I obviously did not know what would happen until I arrived at the resort and I put my skis on, needless to say that the transformation in me was noticed by the entire party and my family were so proud of me for having conquered my fears and addressing my issues, but I could not have done this without Diane, I can’t quite explain how things shifted but they certainly did and so much for the better. I will have a few sessions again next year with Diane to ensure that my skiing holiday is once again just as enjoyable as this year, the first time in years. Don’t hesitate if you feel that this is you, she has worked wonders! My daughter has also just recently worked with Diane to support her with her exam anxiety. I have a different young person at home, and all for the better. Thank you, Diane.
After a traumatic event and periods of increased stress and anxiety, I was put in touch with Diane. Her techniques came highly recommended but I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect from the first session - however within half an hour of EFT I felt the fog begin to lift, my head began to clear and I instantly felt different. I had 4 sessions and they have changed everything. Diane is professional, warm and friendly and immediately put me at ease. Her work is incredible and I can’t recommend her enough.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
