Testimonials 

highly recommended 
Over the years myself, family and friends have visited Leonora for a variety of reasons ranging from smoking, irrational fears and behaviours, food addictions and weight issues. We all came away from our sessions having achieved our aim and with a feeling of relaxation and renewed control over our particular problem. 
 
My specific concern was an inability to have a MRI scan due to my claustrophobic tendencies. I was having nightmares about the impending appointment but thanks to a single session with Leonora they ceased and I was able to go ahead and have my scan which enabled me to get the right treatment I needed. 
 
Leonora has been a superb counsellor, listener and hypnotherapist to us all and I have recommended her services to a large number of people and will continue to do so to help change peoples lives for the better! 
change your life 
Hey, my names Christian and I’m 17 and I pretty much owe Leonora my life. There are people put on the planet who are gifted and she is one of them. Words can’t do justice to how much she can change your life.  
 
I really can’t explain how gifted she is, I know that sounds ridiculous and that can’t be possible but she has an aura around her that is not of this world.  
 
I’m just your average kind of kid, and if you’re sceptical about seeing Leonora, then that’s okay, but she has the ability to change your life. I guess the only words to say are thank you, and hopefully in another life I will be able to return the favour. 
 
reasurring 
I sought Leonora’s help because I felt overwhelmed by work and study pressures, deadlines and expectations. It was all becoming too much and really stressing me out. I needed help dealing with my nerves, finding confidence and being more positive about facing challenges. Leonora has been wonderful. She is a very understanding and reassuring presence, and a fantastic listener.  
 
She has really helped me to motivate and equip me with tools to navigate my way through difficult situations with more energy and positivity.  
 
She has helped me to stay calm, believe in myself more, feel more in control and feel optimistic about the future. I can’t praise her highly enough and really value her.

new outlook 
Dear Leonora, I just wanted to thank you in writing for all your support and for the incredible changes that have occurred as a result of the work that we did. 
 
As you may remember, I really was in a bad way on that first visit, seriously contemplating suicide as I could see no future, no hope. A few hours later I left your office, with a whole new outlook. I knew there was work to do, but I also knew it was possible. 
 
Your ability to put me at ease was quite remarkable as was your ability to gently guide me through my various issues in a way that allowed me to feel safe and protected. 
 
You’ll be pleased to know that I have continued to use all the great techniques that you taught me and I’ve gone from strength to strength. I’m back at work, confidence soaring, socialising regularly and even going to the gym! 
 
My parents say you deserve a medal and I totally agree, so thank you from the bottom of my heart.

thank you 
Hi Leonora, we have just got back from our holiday in Mexico and wanted to let you know that I spent hours every day in the pool and the sea and loved every minute of it. I was like a kid with a new toy and had to keep pinching myself.  
 
To think that I have been terrified of water for 35 years and all it took was that one visit to turn me into a little water baby. We’re already planning our next holiday and I’ve been swimming twice in the last week. Still don’t really know how you did it but thank you…thank you …thank you... 
just amazing 
I smoked anything between 20/30 cigarettes for over 20 years and since seeing Leonora in May 2006, I haven’t touched them. Best thing I ever did!  
 
I have given her number to dozens of people, not just for smoking but for other problems as well and they’ve all been just as impressed.  
 
What she does and how she does it, is just amazing. I’d recommend her to anyone.

I feel very fortunate to have spent time with someone as lovely, wise and experienced as Leonora. I felt completely at ease from the moment I met her and have been able to overcome a number of issues that were holding me back from being the person, wife and mother that I wanted to be.  
 
A patient listener, with a wealth of ideas and techniques to share. I am very grateful for all that she has taught me and would recommend spending time with Leonora for any issue however big or small. No judgement, just honest and very sound guidance. Many thanks! X

I first met Leonora in 2004 when she turned me from a 20 year, 20 a day smoker to a non smoker in 3 hours flat. More recently she's been helping me with some work/procrastination issues and the results are already a success. 
 
If you are serious about improving your life or conquering something which is holding you back, then you can't afford not to book an appointment with this personable, assiduous and able lady.

Sincere thanks Leonora 
 
After a particularly stressful time in my life my anxiety levels were causing me real issues. My sister mentioned Leonora to me, she had previously taken her young son, thankfully I took her advice and booked myself in to see her.  
 
She made me feel so relaxed and normal and I felt like I had known her for years, she certainly has something special. After a couple of sessions I felt far less anxious and using her strategies have been able to move on. I would not hesitate to return to Leonora and to recommend her to anybody of any age. Thank you Leonora from the bottom of my heart.

Leonora was recommended to me by a friend a year or so ago but at the time I didn't feel able to go and see her. Last February I had a baby girl who completed my family after already having 3 boys.. unfortunately my darling girl died 10 days old. My heart broke and I had to try and find the strength to carry on for my other children. Leonora put me at ease as soon as I met her, no judgements were made and I felt free and comfortable to tell her absolutely anything in complete confidence.

I saw Leonora for a few months and in that time she helped me find my confidence again, my self worth and strength, the inner strength to keep fighting and strive for happiness for my children and for me. With Leonora's help I started learning to drive again, passed my test first time, applied for 3 jobs and got all 3 of them, and gained self respect that I had lost over time.

I cannot recommend Leonora enough, I wish I had met her years ago, she opened my mind and eyes and changed my life for the better after losing my precious daughter I didn't know what way to turn, leonora helped me find my path. She is one in a million!

i went to see Leonora for general anxiety issues for many years after a bout of depression. I had had counselling before (during my depression) but the general anxiety issues (especially with travel and crowded places) had not been helped. I tried CBT but to no avail.
Leonora put me at ease from day one and said she could help. The sessions were amazing and I was able to tell her things/issues I had never even thought I could tell someone.
To cut a long story short, over the past few months I have been on trains and buses (anxiety about public transport for 6/7 years!), I have been to the cinema many times and football matches (again almost petrified to do so before) and even travelled long distances in my car on my own!
I can honestly say my life has changed for the better due to this woman!
Thank you!

This is the first ever testimony I've ever written, so hear goes. First of all I would like to express my thanks to leonora.

So I came to see leonora in August as I was 3 weeks away from boarding a long haul flight. My main issue was sickness. Whether it was a sickness bug or food poisoning this was one of the reasons I hated to fly.

Previous flights I would have taken prescribed drugs from my doctor to carm myself down. Last year was possibly the tipping point, as I starved myself for two weeks as I convinced myself I would get food poisoning!

leonora was recommended to me be my sister. (Might I add she also helped my sister to stop smoking, within one session!) So I went along with an open mind. I found Leonora ( apart from being lovely!) Very professional and extremely knowledgeable. She explained things to me and everything she said made total sense.

I had two long seasons with Leonora. The first, about 3 weeks before my flight. This really helped as she helped me prepare for my flight, I felt calmer already! The last, was 3 or 4 days before. After the last session I can only describe my feelings as very strange. I couldn't put my finger on it. Something had changed but wasn't sure what. Even now I can't explain it.

So the flight.. If I'm absolutely honest, on the day the thought didn't fill me with joy. However! I was I different person, in the sense that I was calm, the sickness thing didn't really bother me to my surprise! I remember the last hour of the flight I popped to the toilet to freshen up, I looked at myself in the mirror and though.. This was the best flight I'd ever been on! I wasn't stressed, I had food in my tummy.. Yes I ate plane food! And it was chicken!!! I did question myself about eating on the plane and also thought, I was being so stupid! I had no problem and no worries of eating on the flight or catching anything from others... Amazing!!

Leonora, thank you so much, you have honestly made a huge difference on something very important in my life xx

I wanted to say thank you for helping over the past few years after my mum past away and helping me through my exams, I wouldn't have finished my degree without you. You help me through the worst time of my life which I will always be grateful for. Then when my very close friend past away you were there for me again. You helped me decide to go for my dream job and get the post graduate qualifications I needed to help me move forward. I don't think you will ever know how much you helped me, I can't put it into words.

Thank you for everything xxx
