by Effie Gardner


Hypnotherapy, Stress Management and Counselling are tested and outstanding therapies designed to support people to develop positive goals they want to live.

After thirty years experience in personal development and nearly twenty years in the field of therapy, I can say with confidence to every individual I accept as a client, that they may only count on 100% commitment on my part to their treatment’s successful outcome. However, each person accepted to work with me must make an equal commitment of a 100% to themselves, to reach the goals of creating the very best life they would be willing to tolerate. With such an excellent start nothing could stand in the way or be beyond the realms of reason for anyone’s ability to resolve problems and challenges they face at the moment they call me.

For the above reasons, when you first call, we’ll have a brief consultation. First, to help you decide if you would feel at ease about working with me on your important personal matter and second, is for us to asses if my professional skills are best suited to your needs. These questions are vital if the assistance on offer can be less of an effort or traumatic than just going on suffering silently from emotional pain, discomfort or distress.  So don’t just say that the issues you are dealing with now, from the past or your concerns about the future, are too complicated to overcome and then just soldier on silently and alone.

You can accomplish well-being in a relatively short time and the effort you invest in resolving your difficulties can transform your entire life. In these pages are not ‘off the cuff’ or ‘throw-away’ remarks, yet changing your life experience can be both remarkable and welcome. Over the years I have been able to assist thousands of people.

For humanity there is no such a thing as too little stress and certainly not for very long or sustained periods.

Some people lament that in the past they thrived on stress and that of course may be true, but what we love at twenty can feel like chronic fatigue or terminal illness only five years later.

It is normal and everyone is susceptible to or can succumb to stress. Just listen to the news or read a newspaper to learn of graphic stories of stress ruining the lives of even otherwise successful and calm people.

Example: Did anybody guess that Robin Williams was a stress sufferer and would lead to depression that lead him to take his own life? I didn’t and suspect he did not admit and/or accept how bad things were until much too late! Because if we did and he would have listened but none of us could have known, though it is too late now!
