  1. “After a friend suggested I try hypnotherapy I was extremely apprehensive. Besides, I didn’t have what I considered a real problem; life had delt a few challenging blows, the death of my mother and a marriage breakdown, but on the whole, I was healthy and well. However, I always felt slightly stressed or anxious, and at times a bit down. My nerves were permanently on edge – frayed. If someone looked at me the wrong way I’d want to cry. I juggle a full time job, children and studies but found myself shying away from any challenging environment with work or friends. I started to cut myself off from my larger circle of friends as it was just too much. I kept myself busy and that is what I thought was the best way to deal with not feeling quite right. I exercise most days and this seemed to keep me functioning with whatever the problem was. I didn’t want to go to the doctors as I was worried I would be placed on antidepressants and I didn’t really feel that this was the correct solution for me, or that my symptoms were bad enough to warrant a visit.

    Talking about how I felt to a good friend was the start of my journey with hypnotherapy. Knowing how I was feeling, she suggested I give it ago. My preconceptions were that this was a treatment for people wanting to give up something, like smoking. I also presumed it was a way of tricking your brain into thinking you didn’t need these crutches in life. I thought I would be placed into some strange trance and my brain would be reprogrammed into believing something or that my subconscious would be manipulated. I was wrong.

    Working with Lisa is not about trickery. For me, it was about finding the right path out of my ‘rut’. My brain was holding onto my past traumas so that I wouldn’t be hurt again. It makes sense really; if you burn your hand in a fire, your body will be on high alert every time you go anywhere near one again. All very well, but your mind clinging to these images and memories can cause more pain and damage. It stopped me from moving forwards. The negativity and constantly looking backward was getting me down. I’d tried Counselling and Cognitive Therapy but it didn’t seem to help me move fully away from the problem. Lisa focuses on talking through the upset and helps find the right tools you need to move on, tools you already have. In our sessions, we then focus on the positive aspects of the day or week. The science behind shifting away from thinking about the negatives and looking at the positives enables your brain to process challenges effectively. It naturally looks at ways to solve it – that’s the subconscious bit. It’s not mumbo jumbo. It’s biology. With your brain in a good happy place, Lisa then places you into an extremely relaxed state. At all times you are fully aware of what’s being said and you are always fully in control. I walk away from our sessions feeling calm, relaxed and in control of my life.

    I’ve had about 8 or 9 sessions with Lisa but the results were pretty imminent. In my sessions, we seem to empty my stress bucket as if I’ve had a good night’s sleep or a really good talk to a counselor. I’m left feeling strong. This sense of being calm and in control lasts. I still have my low days, but they are very few and far between. I have this beautiful inner calm. I feel happy. That sounds so small, but when you are in function mode to avoid thinking, it really has made all the difference to me. I wake up and feel calm. That’s a huge change and a massive relief. My chest pains of anxiety have gone. I can relax in the evenings without negative thoughts seeping in making me feel miserable. I’m back in control of my mind.

    Lisa has also been amazing. Relaxed, calm and informative. She has a lovely way about her and confidence in her ability to help. Her sessions are a really wonderful experience. I really enjoy the process.

    Would I recommend hypnotherapy? Without a shadow of a doubt. There are no side effects; its 100% safe and it uses tools you already have to help yourself. It is truly life-changing. Give it a go.”

  2. Lisa Heaton Winskill comes with many positive reviews. I have had the pleasure of having her perform what I can only explain as a miracle. I have in the past paid £100’s into regression therapy, 1-2-1 therapy and no one could ever penetrate through my garden exterior to help me relax, focus and become positive. In just two visits Lisa has me in trance, relaxed, I have coped with these strange times without a night loss of sleep.
    She can explain things that we can all relate too in simple terms and help us to rework our thinking and brain structure.
    I cannot thank or recommend her enough.
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  3. I got so much more from my sessions with Lisa than I could have imagined. Hypnotherapy is something you need to try in order to believe it and in my experience – wow! I would highly recommend it to everyone. I saw Lisa in the hope she could help me stop involuntary blinking – in a new job I was more conscious of it than ever. I didn’t know if it was caused by tiredness, stress, nervousness or just habit. Either way, it’s been a few months now since I’ve been conscious of my blinking, and my family can’t remember the last time they noticed it. But better than that, and unexpectedly, I’ve gained an inner calmness and improved confidence. In situations that would previously have flustered me, I’ve remained calm and in control, and I still can’t believe I’m so unphased by things. The trance state of mind is an incredible feeling. You’re definitely not asleep, you’re aware of everything that’s going, are totally relaxed and yet the mind wanders off peacefully. After the first session, I left Lisa’s feeling super confident, strong and positive – I couldn’t wait for the next session. This feeling stayed with me and, for a few weeks, I was sceptical that it would last. Well, it has! This treatment was a lucky find for me and I won’t hesitate to go back to Lisa again if ever I need to.

  4. I have been suffering from PTSD and severe anxiety since being assaulted 17 months ago. Nothing made the panic attacks go away. I was irritable, stressed, sad and overwhelmed. I thought that was what I would be like forever. Lisa has changed all of that. It is magic, but based in science. She explains the science, then performs the miracle. All virtually (Skype). I haven’t had a panic attack in weeks. Despite what is going on around us, I feel like I can cope better now than ever before. Whatever you are dealing with, I couldn’t recommend it more highly.

  5. I have suffered from anxiety for quite a while, but earlier this year it got a lot worse and resulted in sleep issues. After a lot of ‘googling’, I found Lisa.

    I was quite hesitant to try hypnotherapy at first, as I wasn’t sure how it would help me. But after the first few sessions I noticed a difference…not only was I sleeping better, but I was also feeling calm in situations that used to cause me major anxiety. My colleagues also noticed a change in me, saying they had never seen me happier or more relaxed.

    For those wondering, the sessions include being put into a trance like sleep, however you are subconsciously aware of everything she says to you. After every session I was left feeling calm and ready for anything life threw at me.

    Overall I can’t recommend Lisa enough and anyone struggling should contact her for help.

  7. My Sister recommended Lisa as I was at the lowest and most anxious I have ever been. I was struggling to do almost everything and my quality of life was non existent. I felt I knew my problem and just needed to be strong and get on with it, but when I spoke to Lisa she opened my eyes to a completely different way of thinking and made me realise that although I could normally bounce back, I was never dealing with my issues head on so was never going to be able to be free of my anxiety. Since speaking with Lisa I have been completely liberated. Lisa has helped me get my independence back and I am now doing things that I havent done for years. I absolutely couldn’t recommend Lisa high enough and I am so grateful to her.

  8. I have spent years of my life crippled with a very specific relationship anxiety and it became the norm. I assumed that is how I would have to live the rest of my life, basically living in fear. By the time I came across Lisa, I had all but given up on any kind of therapy. I had tried counselling and CBT, which as much as I am sure they are amazing for some, they did not work for me. The doctors were insistent that medication was the way forward so I tried it but again nothing seemed to change.

    In September 2020 I was struggling more than ever and came across Lisa’s details. From the initial contact she made me feel so comfortable and “normal”, I didn’t feel like just another client, I genuinely felt that she cared. Since then I have seen her once a week and thrown myself into it and I am almost sad to say that today is my last session with her. But my goodness, I am so relieved and so grateful to be able to say I feel like me again. I am brighter and happier! The lovely thing is, everyone around me notices it too. I never thought I would be able to feel like this and it is completely down to Lisa.

    One thing she has taught me is that you do not have to feel anxious or sad, there is another, much happier way to live your life. I cannot recommend her highly enough. 🙂

  9. After a variety of challenging experiences over many years I was at a very low point. Lacking energy, drive and interest in many things, anxious and over eating to the extreme I was feeling very lost. I tried Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and have been astounded by the results. Lisa is extremely approachable, likeable and non-judgemental. I recommend this wonderful therapy to anyone needing help feeling better. I have stopped over eating, enjoy exercise and am much happier in my job. It is no exaggeration to say it’s been a life changing experience for which I will be forever grateful. Try it, you won’t regret it. I wish that more people tried this than resort to anti-depressants etc .

  10. Before I found Lisa, I was feeling the lowest I have ever felt. I was so consumed by anxiety that I couldn’t face getting up in the morning to start the day. I was so overwhelmed by absolutely everything, I could never relax and enjoy my life and I always found something negative to think about. and I had been living this way for many years. I decided to give hypnotherapy a go because I have tried other therapies such as CBT before which didn’t work for me and I really didn’t want to take medication. I felt I had no control over my life. My journey started in my very first session with Lisa where she explained to me exactly what was happening in my brain and why I was feeling anxious and panicked. It was the first time that someone had actually understood what I was saying and really took the time to explain why I was having the anxiety and panic attacks. It was interesting because I’ve read up on anxiety and panic attacks before and I had been to my GP but no one has explained it as well as Lisa did, in such a way that related to my life and experiences and it made complete sense. I instantly felt reassured that hypnotherapy was going to work for me. And it has – I can’t put into words how much better I feel. Lisa has retrained my brain to seek out the positive things in life and find solutions to problems instead of dwelling on them. The things happening in my life hasn’t changed, I’m just so much better at dealing with them. Every day now, when I have thoughts I always take the positive route and it just comes naturally now. Lisa has trained my brain to choose the positive path because it results in a more beneficial outcome and it makes me happier. Hypnotherapy has changed my life and I am now a much more positive person and I look forward to the future. Lisa is the nicest person and I really enjoyed my sessions with her, I really looked forward to going to see her every week. I would recommend hypnotherapy with Lisa to anyone, it’s such a positive experience and all anyone wants in life is to be happy and that’s exactly what Lisa teaches you.

  12. Having recently separated from my husband of 21 years I felt incredibly lost. It felt like a death more than a separation and it was very difficult to focus on anything except how lost I felt and how I was scared of an unknown future. Lisa worked with me to rethink my future options and to understand why I was feeling the way i was and to accept that there was light at the end of the tunnel. Visualising a brighter future that was easily possible with just a little bit of positive thought and taking a bit of time for me was a wonderful life lesson. Thank you Lisa for teaching me a few new life skills and a new way to counter any negative thoughts that may creep in. I use my new skills each day and am so grateful for the hypnotherapy sessions which I still use.
