'You have transformed my life! Yes, that’s a rather dramatic declaration but it’s true. For twenty years I’ve struggled with my weight with little success. It’s a month since I finished my four sessions with you I am now almost three stone lighter, I’ve lost four inches off my waist, and I’m just a few pounds off my goal weight. I can’t believe it. Hypno-banding is really working. I feel so much better and have reduced my blood pressure medication by half. My doctor thinks that when I reach my goal weight, I’ll come off the medication altogether. My friends and family all tell me I look much slimmer, fitter and younger – and that’s very nice to hear too.
I have to admit that when you first gave me the back-up CDs to listen to after our sessions, I thought “I just want to come for four sessions and get thin – I don’t want to work at it”. But having the CD with your twenty-minute recorded sessions has been brilliant. I think I mentioned to you last time we met that I found a surprising side effect of the deep relaxation CD. As you know, I make my living as a writer but have always struggled with the creative process; word-smithing in particular always been a really hard slog. But now, after listening to your CD, it’s like a channel opens in my head and the words just come. It’s obviously to do with being deeply relaxed and in a slightly altered state but it’s revolutionised my process. I still have to show up and focus but it’s no longer torturous for me – the words seem to flow and from the feedback I’ve been getting, I’m doing good work too. So thank you for that wonderful bonus. You’ve not only transformed me physically but mentally and creatively as well!
So many of my friends have asked me how I’ve lost weight and it makes me sad that I’ve left Bristol because I want to send them all to you. Already two of my friends have begun Hypo-banding sessions here in Australia and a third is having hypnotherapy to help her with thesis writing and university study. The Kate Mortimer Effect is rippling across the world!
Kate, I really don’t know how to thank you. I came to you burdened by my weight and loathing how I felt and looked. Not only did I get slim, I got a creative overhaul as well. You are the kind of thoughtful, self-effacing person that will be embarrassed by all my gushing but I have to tell you I can’t believe my great good fortune in finding you. You are a truly gifted hypnotherapist. You changed my life.'
'Your approach and manner made me feel very comfortable with you and so I was able to relax and open up with you which I am sure made the hypnosis more effective.'
'With the help of Mindscape my life has changed so much for the better, I'm now driving a car. I'm sure most people take this small thing for granted. With the help of Kate I was able to drive my new wife away from our wedding in April something I never thought possible. To sit in front of a wheel of a car and drive is something I have avoided for the last 16 years. But now I have a total different feeling towards it and quite enjoy it.
Kate I can't thank you enough, you have sent me on a journey I never thought possible.'
'I thought I would drop you a line to let you know that I have now lost 25 kilos and am still loosing about 1kg per week. I am exercising regularly and feel really positive about the future. I have stopped taking anti depressants and my business is doing really well.
I know I still have a long way to go but I feel that I will be able to get there eventually. I am not sure whether this is entirely down to hypnoband but it certainly gave me the start I needed and for that I am very grateful.
‘Having heard great things about EMDR, but also being a sceptic, I decided the best way to see if it helped was to try it. I had been really suffering with constant Anxiety and poor sleep and the physical and mental consequences both those things brought with them. I could not face the thought of driving and also had vivid memories of really strong physical symptoms that basically stopped me from leading a normal life in case they came when I was out somewhere. After 5 or so sessions I was back in the car and driving about, getting iut more and more and have seen a significant improvement in my symptoms. It did not happen overnight and it took some patience and persistence on both mine and Kate’s part to allow the thoughts that were stopping me from doing things to surface but once they did it felt as if the EMDR treatment was somehow refiling them in a more contained and less scarey way and they stopped keep emerging. I don’t protest to know how it works, but I can honestly say it really helped me and I am a convert. I have also seen since that EMDR is recognised now by NICE. Kate had a very professional, warm and friendly approach and I recommend anyone who is nervous about giving it a go to try her.’
