I really enjoyed the introduction session and Claire’s logical explanation around the conscious and subconscious brain. It actually made a huge difference in understanding how you can rationalise and overcome some of the issues I was addressing. The following relaxation and visualisation sessions were great and I have achieved far more than I thought I could. It has left me feeling that I have control over my actions and it’s made a significant difference.
Went to Bright Star for help with quitting smoking. Felt totally relaxed from the moment I walked in and found the whole experience very positive and helpful. Thank you so much
Claire, at Bright Star Hypnotherapy is a professional and approachable Solution Focussed Hypnotherapist. If you want to explore how hypnotherapy can help you move forward in life, I would recommend a visit to Claire.
I recently received online one-to-one hypnotherapy sessions with Claire during lockdown. In the past, I have suffered with anxiety and panic attacks, and although previous talking therapies, mindfulness and my own self-help avenues helped a great deal, I still wasn't where I wanted to be in terms of my confidence and happiness. I was recommended to Claire by one of my friends who had also received help through Claire's support, and I can honestly say she was brilliant. Not only did the hypnotherapy sessions help me to gain the confidence I needed for my life in general, but they also helped me to set up my own business. Something I have been wanting to do for years but could never find the self confidence to do it. Claire's professionalism and passion for what she does shines through her personality, and I felt so comfortable talking to her about issues and personal views as the environment she created was one of trust and support. She explained the psychology behind how we think and how this affects our actions, mood and feelings in a way that was understandable. I will be forever grateful to Claire for her help and support over our 8 week course! Thank you!
I had a handful of sessions with Claire to cope with heightened anxiety about giving birth at the height of the Covid pandemic. I found the face to face and online sessions a huge help, becoming more aware of my feelings in order to rationalise and cope with changing circumstances. I would highly recommend Bright Star Hypnotherapy- it was a hugely positive experience.
I cannot believe the difference that Claire has made; I sought Claire's help to try and manage my arachnophobia- with two pre-schoolers I really wanted to feel more in control when alone in the house and faced with an eight legged beastie. The old me would have felt sick at the sight of one, panicked, found excuses to leave the house, avoided rooms etc until husband was home to evict the spider.
I only had three sessions. In the couple of months following my therapy I’ve already been able to scoop spiders onto bits of paper and pop them outside and trap the big ones under glasses and remove them without fear. I never could have imagined doing this beforehand and the best bit is I’ve genuinely felt calm, in control and able to chat about our little visitors with the kids who are young enough that they will have no idea that I’ve previously been afraid of them. Recently my husband pulled a massive cardboard box out of the shed and literally tens of massive spiders came racing over it towards me in the garden. I would previously have run screaming for the hills, but I just commented on how many there were and I think he was more bothered than I was!
The therapy didn’t involve any actual spiders - I remember being nervous that one would be produced. Just talking, and relaxing on Claire’s lovely couch. Her rates were super reasonable and I cannot believe how my whole response to spiders has changed so quickly. Would recommend to anyone wanting to make any sort of change - just chat through the options with Claire. Thanks from all of us Claire, Helen M x
Claire is extremely welcoming and easy to talk to, always making me far more positive about life and how I cope with it. She has helped me enormously with my anxiety issues and has the most calming voice for deep relaxation. I would highly recommend Bright Star Hypnotherapy.
