We have just been given the OK to include testimonials from the National Council of Hypnotherapy; we intend to add more to this page over the coming weeks
When faced with cancer the first time round Alison reassured me and re-focused my positivity supporting me through the ordeal that lay ahead. When it returned a few years later Alison was once again able to redirect my panic into focus on getting better, to the extent that I feel in control. Many thanks to the odyssey partnership.
I went to Alison with a distant hope that I could change my drinking habits, i.e to stop at a drink or two and not feel the need for an additional five or more. Having tried months of counselling a couple of years ago with little positive effect, I initially just wanted to try being hypnotized against wanting a third drink.
Alison used her impressive experience to quickly get to the root cause of me numbing myself in this way and together we not only discovered what has been frustrating me all these years, but gave me an action plan to build the confident, non-alcohol and reliant me that was always there.
Three weeks after my first session I have only once had a third drink, and 90% of the time have not wanted to drink at all, a month ago I would have said this was impossible, especially at Christmas time as it is now. Although I am at an early stage and take nothing for granted I’m confident that Alison has facilitated a huge change in my life. Seemingly insurmountable frustration has been transformed into excitement for the future. I cannot thank or recommend Alison’s services enough.
Fear of Masks (1 Session):
Just to let you know it worked! I couldn’t believe it, thank you very much!
From the absolute terror and paralysing fear of the dentist to sitting in the dentist chair, from the depths of depression and despair to sunshine and light,what more can I say? I was treated with the utmost respect and I am going to say love. Thank you very very much.
Donna’s personable nature and professionalism led to a session that was both relaxed and productive. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others.
“I have no hesitation in recommending you – as you know I tried somebody else last December who appeared as well qualified but actually was ineffective for me. Your mp3’s have become a significant part of my routine – reminding me of my goals and the approach to obtain them. The best part of what you did was to drill down right into my issues and reading “between the lines” of what I said. I move forward with great confidence now I know how to cope and succeed in what I want to do.”
Issue: Skiing without fear!
“The service I received through the Odyssey Partnership was both professional and personal. Donna was thoughtful and sensitive to my needs and paced me well. As a consequence of the work we did I was able to feel so much more relaxed on my skiing holiday and was able to enjoy being with my family in the moment.”
“I’m writing to thank you on behalf of my 17 year old son, who is showing a dramatic improvement in his sixth form studies, since visiting you last year. Following your hypnotherapy sessions, he seems to have a stronger vision for his own future and has gained a lot more self belief. He is applying himself to his school work with a greater determination and his recent mock exam grades are a reflection of this. Both his teachers and I are very pleased with the progress he has shown over the past five months, and we look forward to him attaining his full potential in the future.’”

“It’s been over 18 months since I attended my hypnotherapy sessions with Alison for help with my lifelong habit of nailbiting: a nervous habit I’d tried very hard to conquer myself using every other method with only limited short-term success. Considering myself to be a very open-minded person, I was actually quite sceptical about whether or not hypnotherapy could help me and having bitten my nails for 40 years, genuinely thought I was a hopeless case! From my initial telephone enquiry I received nothing but support, kindness and an honest approach to my problem, and I would recommend the Odyssey Partnership to anyone who needs help and an alternative approach. I found the sessions to be very relaxing and self-informative, and felt in complete control at all times. The proof of success is that now 18 months later I still have beautiful manicured nails, currently painted lilac!”

“The Odyssey Partnership dramatically helped my daugher’s fear of flying. It only took a few sessions for my daughter to feel calm and in control when flying. The difference in her composure was fantastic and it has been such a relief to know that she no longer has the fear of flying and should any anxiety arise when she is flying, she now has coping techniques which really work!. Thank you Alison and Donna”
