I’ve been living with OCD for years. Having tried various different therapies CBT and hypnotism to name a couple but nothing really making a lasting difference I had resigned myself to the fact this was something I would have to live with.
As luck would have it, Clare posted on a social media site, looking for clients, at a time when my anxiety levels were particularly high due to the Covid pandemic and I thought it was worth a try. I can’t explain what a difference her sessions made to the way I thought about my behaviour and deep rooted thoughts slowly started to disperse as my understanding of how my thoughts influenced my feelings and behaviours,developed. The therapy didn’t require me to do anything in particular - perfect when your head is full of stuff already - just to acknowledge my thoughts and feelings and in a relatively short space of time I noticed, through virtual meetings with Clare, that the way I perceived things and reacted to situations had shifted.
I would highly recommend Clare’s sessions . She is easy to talk to, a brilliant listener and she has great advice to offer and the ability to help you see and understand your thoughts in a different way. I admire her honesty about her own experiences and the changes she has noticed in herself which have helped me to notice and acknowledge changes in the way I perceive things in my own day to day life.
Clare became my coach at the start of lockdown.
It was during a difficult time in all our lives. She was an amazing help to me, explaining the ’new understanding’ and how the mind works.
This is a completely different approach than I have ever been taught before.
I have suffered with anxiety, depression and OCD most of my life.
In essence it works without having to try or work at it, but instead observing how thought and the mind works.
It has really helped me with long ingrained issues.
Clare was such a huge help and support in coaching me. Also such a lovely kind and understanding person. I can fully recommend her and shall always be grateful for the help she has given me.
I have spent most of my adult life overshadowed by feelings of dread and wasted countless hours worrying about things that I have no control over by over-thinking imaginary scenarios that simply don’t exist! At times I have let my inner thoughts grow into a dark entity that feeds off my anxiety and suffocates my happiness.
I always believed there was no cure, no solution,I accepted it was a case of being who I am - someone who suffers from anxiety! That is until Clare showed me a different path: the simple but very effective realisation that a thought is only a thought!
Due to lockdown I was initially nervous about my consultation with Clare as the session had to be conducted via zoom. However, once connected, Clare instantly put me at ease with her calm, friendly demeanour. Throughout the session Clare articulated herself well and was able to provide clear examples to illustrate the mythology. I was encouraged to ask questions and Clare was able to answer them and provide clarity.
The results have really showed me that we never know an outcome to a situation and that we can choose to live in the moment and not worry about a future that we have no control over. This method has been life changing and has empowered me to cope with stressful situations in a different way and not let my anxieties escalate! This session is highly recommended!
