Testimonials for therapy
The National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) changed their policy regarding testimonials. Previously I allowed my reputation to speak for itself, but as the policy has changed I will put just a few testimonials here. These people are all genuine clients and would be more than happy to be contacted if you wish to hear from them yourself.
The problem with testimonials is that it is so easy to make them up to look good. I only want reviews of my work that are genuine and that the person who gave them would be happy to speak about what they have said.
In September 2011 I was encouraged to undertake a Masters degree course as part of professional development through work. This seemed like a good idea at the time, but I quickly began to feel overwhelmed by the workload on top of working full time. By April 2012 the level of stress began to manifest in panic attacks and anxiety and it was at this point that I sought Joy’s expertise.
Instantly Joy made me feel at home in her presence and has worked with me realise where some of my fears had stemmed from, to overcome them, and to realise my abilities. Over time this alleviated the unwanted symptoms that I had been experiencing, enabling a more equal work / life / study balance and the successful completion of my Masters degree.
Last week I sent Joy this text: “I have just found out I managed 75% in my Masters dissertation. Chuffed to bits, could not have done it without you, thanks so much!”
I would just like to wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and thank you again for your amazing help to stop me smoking. I am pleased to say I have never touched a single cigarette since and have no intention to anymore. Thank you so much X”.

“Hypnotherapy is the best way to stop smoking. I totally agree, thanks to you Joy Gower I am thrilled to say I am a non smoker and have been for 12 months now. I know for certain I could not have done it without you. At the time I was not 100% sure if it would work for certain, but I walked in as a smoker and 45 minutes later I left as a non smoker for good. Thank you from not only me but also my family”.

“I saw you in a supermarket and couldn’t help shouting across the tills that you were the woman who saved my life. I was a wreck who couldn’t go out without panicking. Six years after seeing you I still use all the techniques you taught me. I am much more confident in my life, and happy with it. Many thanks again”.

I’m doing really well and really believe it’s due to you and the work we did together!! I’ve had therapy in the past and it hasn’t been very effective. I can honestly say you are by far the best! Thank you so much, I really believe my life is changed for the better.
“The sessions I had with Joy far exceeded my expectations. I had heard about Joy many years ago, but it was only when I went to see her to gain even more confidence with a business project that I realised how useful the sessions were. I noticed that she used hypnosis, NLP and business coaching during the sessions. What value for money that was!
I put all the skills she taught me to use and wow, what a huge difference it made to my business. I am very pleased.”
Firstly I apologise for not updating you sooner, but I have been incredibly busy since coming back from holiday.
However, the holiday was brilliant, no Panic attacks or anxiety. Felt good going out and while I was there. Since being back I have also been away for work, and the same thing last year, I wasn’t good in the evening.
However this year I was fine. Having the disc to listen to and also some physical things to do, I think helps enormously.
I thank you so much for helping me, and i wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this treatment to anyone else.”
“Hi Joy. Just wanted to let you know that I did really well on both flights last week. I was a bit nervous but I use the techniques you taught me and it calmed me down enough to get on the plane without issue. My other half was very impressed and relieved! Thank you so much for your help! I definitely feel more calm about flying now and already thinking about booking my next flight.”
“Just wanted to contact you to let you know that thanks to your help and advice, I travelled by plane to Spain and back. We got back last week and I could never have believed I would have been able to do it. I am so happy I did it and I just wanted to say thank you for your help! I have recommended you to a few friends and a friend of mine who is a GP Practice nurse has suggested you to a couple of her patients who she thinks may benefit from your help.
Hope all is well with you! Lots of love”

“I was given the honour and responsibility of being asked to be best man. After being delighted I realised that I would have to make a speech which filled me with dread. I hadn’t done any public speaking before and a friend suggested hypnosis. I was recommended to Joy Gower who was both professional and friendly and instantly put me at ease, explaining that with a few exercises and some sessions my worries and anxiety would disappear.
The big day came and I felt calm and was actually looking forward to speaking to over 200 people. The speech went amazingly well and I can’t thank Joy enough for the help she gave me.

“I was smoking 40 cigarettes a day. My circulation was very poor and sometimes I could not feel my feet or legs. After one session with Joy, I stopped smoking. It was like a miracle to me; I had no desire to smoke. Two years later I went on holiday with a friend who was a chain smoker. She left her cigarette in the ashtray and I picked it up, thinking I would have a quick drag as no one knew me. A strong voice in my head said, “Put that down at once, you are a non-smoker”. I thought there really was someone there, maybe Joy, but of course it was just me. That was eight years ago, and although from time to time I do wonder what it would be like to smoke, I have not, and never intend to ever again.”
