Before my chronic fatigue was having more bad days than good and now I am having more good days. My confidence and self-esteem has improved massively and I am now excited for the future.”

Charlotte, 20, Sunderland, UK

“I started this therapy slightly pessimistic that it would help me overcome my hurdles, which included illness and struggling with public transport, and I finish with an open mind.
Holly has taught me techniques to cope with a variety of situations to help regain my life back, all whilst doing so in a relaxed and friendly manner.
If Holly doesn’t have a trick up her sleeve to help you then no one will!”

Thomas, 19, Newcastle, UK

“Holly has helped me in several different ways. She has helped me work out how to control my pain which I now suffer from very rarely. She also helped me to deal with my anger issues, teaching me how to be more assertive. Holly gave me tips for coping in exams – how to get rid of my brain fog. Now I am working on how to balance my health. I love Holly, she’s made me feel better.”

Emma, 16, Middlesbrough

“It feels so good to be eating cleanly and I feel much more energised from this. I also discovered that I was worrying a lot about symptoms and that would make my symptoms worse. I also always rested when I got a symptom, but then I discovered that sometimes my body actually wanted me to move instead. I have really got to know and understand myself and my body and to do what I really want and need. All of the sessions were led by me and whatever I wanted to work on, sometimes I wondered if I had gone off topic and wasn’t focusing on my ME, but everything was relevant to me as a whole person and that has helped me get better. I used to think really negatively all the time but now I automatically think positively.”

“I had Fibromyalgia for 8 years! The day Holly saw me she helped me relax for the first time ever which felt so good! She taught me how to reduce my pain by myself, which I’ve been using since. Because I now feel better and am in less pain, it means I can do more and my husband really notices a difference in my mood, so he is happy too!”

“The day I saw you I walked away feeling so much lighter and, though I focused on my arms while following your finger it was actually my legs that felt much less painful! The sleep didn’t improve very noticeably but I have been able to start doing some guided meditation and relaxation before going to sleep and my sleep is definitely improving. I am motivated to go walking every day. It is still up and down energy wise but I feel so much better overall, like I am gradually getting back in touch with myself and can do the things I need to get to a new kind of normal, all very interesting. Thank you.”

“I’ve noticed a lot of changed this past week, I’ve not had a full panic attack, and even when I’ve worried about things like my health I’ve managed to calm down and not get in to the panic state. I still need to deal with worrying all the time about things but I’m sure that will come at some point. I’ve managed to go to the doctors for help for my dizzy spells without being too frightened, and my eating has also taken a better turn, haven’t had any bulimic behaviors recently, thank you very much for your help xx”

“My mum has been to stay for a few days and she said she can see such a change in me. She noticed I could walk round more shops. My mum kept asking me how I was managing it? I told her all about you and how you have helped me. It was great using your help. It made me use parts of my mind to help heal myself. I can now walk further, I’m not in pain, I have more energy and also remember more than I used to. I am so grateful for your help and the impact it has had on my life. The other differences it has made to my life are I also feel more positive, happy and also I ask for help when needed. I feel like the M.E. hasn’t got as much control over me and it is slowly leaving my body. You have really helped me. I just seem to be getting better and better. I’m going to the theatre next week on a night. I haven’t been out on a night in 6 years because I haven’t been able to stay awake. But I’m managing to stay up now. Xx”

“In 20 years I have never felt this good, here is my list of changes after two sessions to reduce (or stop?) my CFS/ME:  I’m so relaxed and chilled out about everything. I feel so calm! I’ve been walking minimum 20 minutes a day. That poisoned feeling in my body has gone. I’m remembering things so I don’t have to keep checking everything. I’m naturally choosing healthy foods and my stomach feels fine. I’ve been to visit the horses. I’ve been sleeping well! I want to feel this good for 6 months and then I’ll be able to tell everyone that I don’t have ME!”

“My Mind Spa experience was truly amazing, I felt results almost immediately and I found it very beneficial in helping me overcome my fears. The service was very professional and I felt comfortable as Holly made me feel really at ease with her friendly manner and approach.

“I have chronic pain and fears about being out in Public by myself because of painful bad experiences. In two sessions Holly used NLP, EMI and tapping technique. I now have two new tools to try and access. I have gradually noticed small but positive changes during and after each session with the help and patience of Holly. One of these changes being flashbacks to happy memories that I had previously blocked out and laughing more. After today’s session I feel more positive and when I walked around in public I felt some strong positive vibes, which helped me to manage the journey home. Holly is beautiful and compassionate. Thanks for the lovely rose and fennel tea too :)”

“Hi Holly,
It’s 1 month today for not smoking! I haven’t even considered having one which has felt really good, I’ve stocked up on Green Tea instead. Changes I’ve noticed well..apart from hardly thinking about smoking anymore my attitude towards it has defiantly changed, I’ve even managed to help my boyfriend with his quitting now too.. He didn’t want to do the green tea idea but he’s using lolly pops as a replacement..it’s 1 month not smoking on Friday for him too! “

“Thank you so much for creating a safe space for me to deal with my anxieties around flying and fire! I actually enjoyed my flight, feel excited about travelling again and can light candles in my room! Somehow it has improved my relationship with my boyfriend. Even though I only briefly mentioned that to you! I changed so much from one hour! You are MAGIC!”

“I really haven’t been eating after 7pm, just like I wanted! Every time I see that fridge I immediately think of myself wearing that pink dress next year and I don’t feel the need to pick at food! I have tried so many times in the past but your technique has really made the difference!”

Julie Riley, 34, Middlesbrough

“I’ve been using The Mind Spa to help me with numerous issues over the last few months and I am rather impressed with its effects! One of the things I really benefitted from was alleviating a series of distressing memories that haunted me and caused me to criticise myself every time they replayed in my mind.  Holly guided me to desensitize myself to the memories, so that although they still exist it is as if I have been able to distance myself from them and disarm them of their power over me. I now simply accept that they are in the past but they no longer have an emotional impact on me.
Throughout the process Holly creates and maintains a sense of calm, a sense of purpose and does not judge. She allows you the space to talk freely and experience things in a new way. I surprised myself by my own ability to respond to the process, as even though I kept an open mind I had my doubts.
NLP is a gentle but very useful technique, using relaxation and guided imagery to help yourself to cope with difficulties including anxiety, uncertainty, self-doubt, self-esteem and just about anything you can think of! Thinking is the essence! The mind is such a powerful force and it can be persuaded to refocus and readjust to seeing things and responding to situations in new, creative ways that improve your health, wellbeing and life in general.”

Juli Watson, 38, Sunderland

“As a sufferer of a multitude of disorders ( M.E, O.C.D, depression and anxiety…), and after finding Holly’s yoga sessions very helpful, I signed up for some Mind Spa treatments with her and have not been disappointed.
After years of trying such therapies, it’s nice to have one where I feel in control. I am having input into how I tackle my demons. I can use my strong points to do so; it’s very liberating. There are even moments of laughter and light relief; it doesn’t always have to be pain-staking, though you are covering difficult ground.
The basic idea is that if you can make changes in your thoughts and utilise your imagination, you will see changes in your life. We have worked on a range of techniques, always with my comfort and well-being in mind.
Holly possesses skills and qualities that are conducive to a soothing, healing environment, right down to how she speaks and how she listens attentively and with interest. It is clear that she is passionate about what she does, genuinely cares and wants to see you overcome your hurdles to become the best version of yourself.
Not only have I come to consider her a first class therapist and an all round guru, I consider her a friend.”

Gillian Weatherstone, 28, Gateshead
