Don't just take my word for how I can help. Thank you to the clients below who have taken the time to write about how they have benefited from our work together.

"Your hypnotherapy session gave me my confidence back. I am now self-assured and calm when facing any type of audience. My self-belief has returned. Thank you so much."

- K Stewart, Manager

"Working with Linda Flanigan was an excellent experience. I had never had any hypnotherapy before and was not sure what to expect but it was an easy process and the outcomes were better than I expected.

Linda is extremely professional in her approach. She took a lot of time to review with me the area I wanted to address and asked quite thoughtful questions which were never invasive but were detailed enough to allow her to get to know me and the reason I wanted hypnotherapy.

The sessions we had were very comfortable and she uses a series of techniques, not just hypnosis, to help. I still use some of the techniques today and I feel like I have my own set of tools to use if I need to.

I cannot recommend Linda enough based purely on her level of professionalism and the results I experienced."

- Kristen, Oxfordshire

"Linda provided a really life changing, welcoming and professional service. I went to see Linda whilst going through a particularly difficult and emotional period in my life, the like of which I had not experienced before. Within a few sessions Linda had not only resolved some of the many challenges I was facing, but also taught me coping mechanisms, and identified root causes as to why I was there at all.

Since the sessions with Linda, I have taken only positive steps forward, and am far better prepared to face life's challenges with a new clarity and strength, one which was certainly lacking before.

I would highly recommend Linda's service to anyone facing personal or challenging circumstances, and she really does achieve fantastic results."

- D, Oxfordshire

"In recent years I developed a great fear of flying. It had worsened and become so acute that I deliberately avoided even the most tempting of trips if a flight was involved. I would shake and worry if ever I needed to take even a short flight and would feel completely embarrassed at this seemingly uncontrollable fear that would show itself through my sitting with my head in my hands during a flight, gripping on to my partner if there was the slightest bump or noise change. The discomfort for me was dreadful, the terror-filled time spent in the air completely distressing and I felt several times that I would have to be sedated or something if I couldn't control what I felt was the onset of full blown panic attacks.

I went to see Linda late last year for some help. I was completely open-minded but couldn't really believe that I would ever get over this fear. After only four sessions with Linda my outlook towards flying changed. I was greatly impressed by how she seemed to 'tailor' our sessions specifically for me; her kindness, professionalism and understanding allowed me to go with what she recommended and to trust that she was indeed helping me to overcome this. I felt that it was possible for me to become at least less afraid. I used the techniques she was teaching me in random, semi stressful situations to become used to them and to see how stress levels could be controlled and not take over me.

The proof of the pudding as it were came when I needed to fly to the Isle of Man on business. I sat in the small airport waiting to board on my way home, it was winter and announcements suggested that we might not be able to leave because of the horrible weather conditions; wind howling and torrential rain. I boarded the plane and flew home as easily as if I'd been boarding a train. I am so grateful to Linda."

- KW

"I arranged to see Linda when I was going through a period of deep stress in my personal life. The hypnotherapy tapped into my subconscious which helped me to learn to override and alter my conscious negative thoughts and emotions.

I now feel much stronger and more in control because I can use the learned techniques from the sessions to keep myself calm and positively focused no matter how difficult life gets.

Linda also helped me to give up smoking through self-hypnosis which I never felt I was strong enough to do. I now feel a much more confident and well-rounded person.

Thank you"

- NN, Oxfordshire

"Six months ago I suddenly found myself in a situation that meant I had to host a 2 hour presentation to a group of business professionals - not my forte! Whilst outwardly I may appear confident, inwardly the thought filled me with complete abject fear - I absolutely knew that two weeks of sleepless nights lay ahead of me! I'd heard that Linda had worked with other business professionals to help them overcome confidence issues and whilst a sceptic as far as hypnotherapy was concerned I was desperate to try anything that might help.

We had an initial meeting to discuss what I hoped to achieve and for a bit of history taking. At the beginning of my first actual hypnotherapy session I stated to Linda that I thought I was wasting her time as I really didn't believe she could help. How wrong can you be!

After only 2 sessions I 'walked' that first presentation without a single sleepless night. Six months down the line and I'm able to present regularly to high calibre businesses without fear and trepidation. I'd go so far to say that I actually enjoy it now - believe me I never thought I'd say that!

As a business owner I had no idea how much my lack of confidence had been holding not just me back but was also stifling the business. Working with Linda has transformed our plans for growth and expansion and the speed at which we're able to implement them."

- Sonia Kearns, Director, Opendoorz Ltd

"I have just had five sessions with Linda and I feel like a new woman!

I am the type of person who worries about things before they have happened, I guess this was a type of anxiety and started to take over my life. I was very sceptical about the whole experience and didn't know what to expect. When I turned up to Linda's place she was so warm and welcoming. We had a long chat first before Linda then relaxed me totally and started working with me on my goals.

When I left the first session I didn't feel any different for about two days.

I then found myself trying to worry about things and couldn't! It was as if Linda had placed a blocker to stop me from having these feelings of worry. I was telling myself to get on with something productive instead! We were then able to explore other areas of professional development and the results were outstanding!

With my hand on my heart, I would wholeheartedly recommend this experience to anyone I knew!!!!"

- Tessa Hince, Commercial Manager

"I was sceptical at first that hypnotherapy would help my phobia (emetophobia) as I could never envision myself without the anxiety. However I was proved very wrong as I am now even able to look after people who are being sick whereas before anything associated with it would make me feel anxious and panicky. I would strongly recommend hypnotherapy as it enables me to fully enjoy myself/go about daily tasks without my phobia hanging over me."

- N Campbell, Student

"Returning to academic study after an absence of 20 years, I encountered tremendous difficulty with concentration when attempting to study.

Without the hypnotherapy sessions and the relaxation and concentration techniques you taught me I doubt if I could have achieved what I did in my course.

Not only did you help me with the immediate concentration problem but I have used the techniques to help me many times since. Thank you very much for all your help."

- J Dobbin, Manager

"Linda has helped me work through a serious phobia that I've held for over 30 years. She gave me a calm, trusting and confidential space to explain my problems, and just being able to talk to someone who totally understood was a great relief. We worked with hypnosis and EFT to help me overcome my fears, and I'm confident I have these tools now to help me deal with future situations. The progress made in each session was amazing, and I can face things I've never been able to do before. To make these achievements was also really empowering, and I know now that I can overcome anything. Thank you so much Linda!"

- E, Witney

"I was suffering from an irrational fear that I was unable to 'think' myself out of using CBT techniques. It was holding me back and making many situations unbearable for me. I was due to take a holiday to the USA with friends and was suffering with a great deal of anxiety. After just a few sessions with Linda the problem near enough vanished, and for any remaining anxiety Linda gave me some practical tips and exercises to help me through. For me, hypnotherapy was the perfect solution and enabled me to make the trip, finally feeling in control of my anxiety."

- SG, Oxfordshire

"I'd quit smoking lots of times, but always felt like I was denying myself something and always started again. When I met Linda and she said she could 'free' me from smoking in just two sessions I was a bit sceptical, but at 50 and with both parents prematurely dead from smoking-related illnesses, I knew I needed to do something.

I'd never been hypnotised before and didn't know what to expect (well - I expected new-age mumbo-jumbo), but Linda is very professional - more like a doctor or a counsellor - and really put me at ease.

By the time I'd finished my second session I had no desire to smoke, and find it hard to imagine how I ever did. Even at pubs and festivals - places where I've always buckled in the past - I haven't even thought about smoking.

It's now over a year since my last cigarette, and I've just bought a new iPad with some of the money I've saved.

Since then I've recommended Linda to family and friends, and she's worked wonders with exam stress and social anxiety too."

- Simon Gregory, Creative Director, Oxford

"At 29 years of age I had been smoking for almost half of my life. I tried to give up a few times before but was always unsuccessful. After hearing that a friend of mine had managed to quit after a session of hypnosis I was keen to give it a go.

After the first session I have to say I wasn't totally convinced as it didn't quite sink in and I still felt like smoking. But after the second session I was amazed that it had actually worked and I didn't have the urge to smoke. I'm still not sure exactly how it worked but it has and I haven't smoked for over 4 months and have no desire to start any time soon.

I would highly recommend Linda's hypnosis - she is very professional and sets you at ease right away. As long as you truly want to quit, hypnosis will make you stop smoking!"

- Lee C

"Linda has a wonderful, warm and calm manner and put me at ease straight away.

She gave me three consecutive treatments for predominantly health anxiety, but also panic attacks. I most definitely feel I have benefited, I am generally much calmer, my irrational thoughts do not surface nearly so often and when they do I have much more control over them.

Each treatment left me feeling relaxed and positive. I can't recommend her highly enough. Thank you Linda."

- Jemma

"When I was invited to Morocco I knew that I had to either refuse the invitation or finally seek help to cure my fear of heights. Anything above 10m would give me a panic attack and this situation was getting worse as the years passed.

As I really wanted to join my friends in Morocco I decided to try hypnotherapy. After quite an extensive search I chose Linda because she uses different techniques including NLP.

Already after three sessions I could feel the difference. I was not afraid of being afraid anymore!

My holiday in Morocco has been the best ever. I have climbed mountains, have seen scenery that I never thought I would and all this thanks to Linda!"

- A France

"The best seat in town is now the dentist's chair!"

- Maureen

"After 5 fruitless years of seeking help from the medical profession, I came to Linda with my daughter's, sometimes quite severe and debilitating, tummy pain. Linda has a wonderful, soothing and understanding manner, which eased any nerves my daughter may of had at attending hypnotherapy, and it only took 3 sessions to reduce these pains to almost nothing. I now have a happy, smiling child again, which is wonderful. We wish we had met Linda sooner!"

- G Riley
