Accomplish Change with Ease...
Ray, I wanted to give you feedback after our session. I have to say that the 2 days after the session I was absolutely floating. I had the best sleeps I've had in years. Since then I am happier than I was and generally sleeping allot better. I find I am not as angry and my relationships are better. My boyfriend passed a comment on how much more relaxed I was and we are getting on better too...
Ray, thank you so much! Thanks again for last week. My mind is free of all that clutter and it seems to have had some positive effect, which is a really good thing for me. I'm recommending a friend to you, hope you don't mind!
Aisling, I just want to thank you for yesterday - you were very patient with me! I feel great today and did a great presentation. I definitely have a better feeling about presenting at meetings and handling things in the future! I'm really grateful for what you've done.
Hi Aisling, I came to see you when I was beginning a cycle of IVF. I'm just dropping you a line to let you know I'm now almost 15 weeks pregnant. Things are going really well. I'm still a little anxious, but each week I get more confident and relaxed. I want to thank you for the work you did with me. I find I use the techniques frequently. I have praised and recommended you to many people since. Thanks again, regards,
Hi Ray, I wanted to update you on my weight loss success! of 3 stone. The gastric hypnotherapy band exercise that we did worked brilliantly; I find myself automatically eating less, smiling more, been upbeat and happy about my future. Oddly enough I have had no cravings at all, and continue to lose weight since we did the emotional work and addressed my beliefs.
Hi Ray, I wanted to thank you for your great help in my flying fears when I went to London at Easter. I was absolutely fine; especially going when I was actually surprised when we were coming into land it was so quick! Coming back was equally good, helped by no delays and smooth flights. I am going over again for a weekend later in June and I feel fine about it. Thank you so much for taking the time to help me, and I'm confident now that it will continue.
I am delighted to tell you that I am completely cured of Vaginismus! We have a healthy sex life now that I never dreamed I could ever have. I never imagined I would ever feel this way. I am truly happy and fulfilled and I just wanted to thank you for all your help. I could not have climbed that mountain without you. I hope you continue to help others.
Hi Aisling, Well I'm the proud mother of a beautiful baby boy Aidan!! I just wanted to say a massive thank you for ensuring that I was mentally prepared. My consultant couldn't believe it and asked how I mentally prepared myself, mid wife asked for a copy of my birthing plan to keep. I told everyone that asked in the hospital about you and hypnobirthing. Doc said he couldn't believe it for first baby and that my threshold for pain was remarkable!! So Aisling massive thank you.
Many Thanks Ray for all your support in helping me lose weight. I really needed ongoing support which has made all the difference in me losing and keeping the weight off. I know this is a year later, but I thought you’d like to know that I have still kept the weight off and I am very proud of myself and for you encouraging me along the way. I loved the Hypnosis you did with me as it made losing weight so much easier then I would have thought!
Aisling has helped me with a lot of different issues that I have had over the last year and I must say that I am astonished at what she has accomplished with me. I was really doubtful that I could get rid of some of my problems, but now I actually have and that is amazing. I highly recommend Aisling’s services to anyone who wants to make a change within themselves, because it has helped me tremendously.
