Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy
"My daughter, aged 13, came to see Emma with OCD symptoms. Through listening to my daughter and teaching her relaxation techniques and coping strategies, Emma has been a great support and we have noticed a huge difference in our daughter. She has made amazing progress over just a few months and I cannot recommend Emma enough as a therapist."
"Thank you for your help this evening. I went straight away and drove up to Portishead and back again. I had a slight tummy flutter as I was approaching the drive back to Clevedon, but my head stayed clear and I drove without any anxiety. Thanks again I will be sure to recommend you."
"Thanks to Emma I am well on my way to overcoming my lifelong phobia of spiders. I found the therapy enlightening and empowering and would thoroughly recommend it."
"I found Emma's Hypnotherapy hugely beneficial, particularly dealing with feelings of anxiety and stress. The breathing techniques and coping strategies are something I use and refer to on a daily basis and have really helped in my day to day life."
"After suffering with health issues, I found myself very anxious and agoraphobic. With hypnotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques, Emma has not only helped me to feel confident about going out, but has made me feel much more positive about moving to a new city to re-join my university course - something that was previously very daunting to me. After just the first session I felt an improvement, which continued to increase throughout our sessions. I would definitely recommend her!"
Thank you so much for your email, and also for our session. I am delighted to say, nearly one week on, and it’s going really well. In fact, I’ve not had a glass of wine since we met :) and the snacking is well in check. I’ve implemented the techniques we discussed, and it’s working wonders, and i’m not even missing the chocolates and the wine. Long may it last! CB, Bristol
'Emma's fertility massage was very relaxing and really helped me to feel positive about my fertility journey. This obviously helped as after 18 months of trying, within 3 months of her massage I was pregnant!' GN, Bristol 2017
"I would just say that it was firstly very relaxing during such a stressful and highly emotional time. Also that it was good to be able to have the meditation methods to help clear the mind of stress. But more than that it was important to be able to have the affirmations to be repeat positive thoughts and feelings as infertility can create a lot of negative feelings and self doubt or even blame. It was always lovely to talk about things with you as I felt you really listened and could help things seem more positive."

'I feel extremely lucky to have discovered Emma to support me with my infertility issues. Emma is so warm, welcoming, caring and knowledgeable that I felt in safe hands immediately. I felt very grateful to have this support at a time when I felt the NHS had completely abandoned me and there was simply no one to give me any guidance or care about the heartbreak my husband and I were experiencing. What really impressed me about Emma, and one of the main reasons I went to see her, is her diverse range of skills. I wasn't sure what I needed to support my infertility: someone who would listen; someone with knowledge of fertility and the things that might be getting in the way; and someone who could provide some holistic therapies to help my body and mind get into balance - but what? I didn't know! Luckily, Emma did and now I am absolutely sold on reflexology having never tried it before, it is just so relaxing which was so good for my stress levels! I also benefitted from the fertility massage, which felt like it was doing something very important, and I found the positive affirmations about my body very healing and calming. Having the space to talk also allowed me to identify issues in my relationship too which has now massively improved and other health issues seem better: bladder, sleep, energy levels etc. Despite not knowing exactly what makes fertility work when it does, the fact I have now amazingly fallen pregnant, after working with Emma for just 4 months, feels too much of a coincidence! So, obviously I cannot recommend Emma enough. Not only have her skills, energy and positivity probably contributed enormously to enabling me to become pregnant, she also kept me sane and positive at a dark and desperate time in my life. The only downside to this pregnancy is not being able to see Emma and continue to enjoy all that lovely calming massage and reflexology! Thank you for everything, Emma.'

After my first fertility massage I had none of my usual pre menstrual symptoms of sore boobs or lower back. The massage helped ensure better circulation and my menstrual cycle was bright red compared to darker, clotted blood I usually experience. . Emma is an expert in her field and is conscious of the financial burden of undergoing long term fertility treatments. Treatment is personalised and performed in a relaxing environment. I will be visiting throughout my fertility journey.

“My massage treatments with Emma were really relaxing and helped me feel a lot less stressed. I would highly recommend her”.

"I found my session with Emma helpful and relaxing, the CD is useful to practise relaxation strategies and I hope it will help me with the birth and beyond!"
This is very very long overdue, but I wanted to thank you for some of the things you taught me back in 2013 when my eldest (R) was born. I was pregnant last year with our second (J) and had some very sore ribs and consequent sleepless nights in the last few months of pregnancy. I often listened to your CD in the early hours and it massively helped to relax me and help me to drift off to sleep/doze. It also helped during labour (relatively normal, though induced) and birth - and all went well - no intervention, not much pain, a health baby and discharge the following morning.
"I have definitely felt much more supple from attending Pilates lessons!"
