"“I have suffered anxiety for many years and with an increasingly more stressful work life it began to become something I could no longer manage on my own. The hypnotherapy sessions first taught me how to relax, which had a hugely positive impact on my stress levels. This allowed me to address my stress and anxiety and put into place achievable strategies to overcome this debilitating affliction. I use these strategies daily and I am so grateful to Nikki for the work we did together. Nikki is experienced, knowledgeable and fantastic at what she does.”  Karen, Bristol.
