'Cathy's meditations are wonderful. It isn't actually possible to put into words just how much so or in exactly which ways as it will be different for everyone. I was introduced to Cathy in the Summer of 2016 in Eaton Park. I was in a state of extreme anxiety, at a loss with my life and the world and utterly confused. Unfortunately, I got my timings muddled and missed her meditation in the park but after chatting to her she told be about her Beginner's Meditation course which was coming up at the Yoga Tree. At that moment something clicked into place for me: this was exactly what I had been looking for.
If someone had said the word 'meditation' to me 10 years ago I would have probably pulled a face. Partly through immaturity and partly through ignorance as I associated with Buddhism (and therefore religious), travellers, hippies and "no hopers". How wrong I was! Cathy's meditations are awe inspiring. She prepared background notes for us on different topics such as colours, chakras and animal medicine and then incorporated them into her wonderful, relaxing meditations. Her voice is extremely soothing which also aids relaxation.
For the first time in my life my brain shut-up. It actually stopped all the erratic, anxious thoughts and reminders that have been whizzing around for over 30 years. For me this is bliss and relief all in one. It literally felt like everything had been lifted from me.
Calm, release, relaxation, belief, intuition, acceptance and learning to listen to and feel with my body are all things that I am learning through Cathy. There are still good days and bad days, that is life so not a bad thing to have an "off-day". I have learnt just to go with whatever comes.
Cathy has literally opened my eyes to things about and within myself that I never thought possible. She has also helped open my mind to new insights and concepts. I am so happy that I found her that day. It was meant to be. Nearly everything resonates and her meditations are my sanctuary.
I have just completed my second course with Cathy and am about to start a third. Cathy has definitely helped create some new energy within me and I cannot rate her highly enough. Thank you for everything :)'
'Yesterday I finished the guided meditation for stress and relaxation course, it has been a revelation and I feel so much stronger mentally. Cathy is so lovely and was so good at guiding us, I felt I flew away each week. I started off feeling it might not be for me but I loved it, it's totally changed how I deal with anxiety and I now feel I can cope with anything. Thank you so much Cathy. X'
'Just completed The guided meditation course for stress and relaxation. It is life changing , for someone who is generally highly stressed and tense , this course has started a journey of change . In short sign up now . THANK YOU Cathy.'
'This course has given me life changing skills. I would highly recommend it to anyone! Cathy is a wonderful warm soul and this has been a great start to a future life with meditation. Thank you so much 🙏🏼😍 xxx'

No words will ever be strong enough to explain how special and wonderful Cathy has been to me. I first met Cathy about 3 months ago, when a family friend had highly recommended her to me. I found myself in a hole which I could not get out of. All my friends and family would all describe me as the happiest person they knew, however over the last 6 months I had found myself spiraling downhill. My smile was always fake, I was constantly tired and wanting to be alone, I saw no way out…. Then Cathy entered my life.
On my first visit to The Green Room I was extremely nervous and barley said 2 words, Cathy made me feel so welcome and relaxed, it was the beginning of my journey. Cathy took care of me and helped me through my healing process, she found my smile, and she found me!
We started with little words then came the tears, but towards the end of my journey we had laughter, real laughter, real smile and lots of ‘Glitter’! I will never forget my experience and will remember some of the special words Cathy said to me in many life experiences to come. I highly recommend Cathy to anyone who needs a boost in life or has found themselves to be a little lost, she gave me confidence and my life back.
Thank-you Cathy for all you have done for me and my family. Everyone can see what you have done for me, even those who still to this day have no idea about you.
Much love always. xxx
If anyone is suffering from anxiety I would definately recommend hypnotherapy. I just wish it was prescribed on the NHS as it has changed my life and if only more people were aware of the benefits it would change their lives to.
I felt better after just one session. I had been suffering for a long time and had been offered antidepressants which I feel just cover up the problem without solving it. Determined that I didn't want to take medication, I booked an appointment to see Cathy. I was really nervous as I had never tried hypnotherapy before and I didn't know anything about, but it has given me my life back. It has taught me where my anxiety started from and techniques on how to cope with it. Cathy really put me at ease and made me feel like I had a friend that was there for me and who understood how I was feeling. I can't thank her enough !
I first met Cathy at her wonderful beginners meditation course and when I found out that meditation was only one string of many to her bow, I decided to go and see her for help with a few issues. We used a mixture of EFT and hypnotherapy to help me overcome a traumatic experience from my past. I had dealt with much of this experience already but for some reason I had been unable to shake off this part for the last 25 years. After just one session I can honestly say it no longer bothers me and I feel like a massive weight has been lifted from my shoulders which is an incredible feeling.
I've also had trouble sleeping for many years but, after using a nightly hypnotherapy download that Cathy prepared for me, I am finally sleeping without prescribed medication which I feel is a minor miracle!
After all of Cathy's success with my past experiences I felt that the natural next step would be to try Future Life Progression. It was an extremely powerful experience for me and produced some unexpected results. It's a life I am very much looking forward to living. One thing I found most helpful was that my future self was able to give me some advice on how to help myself along the way and I am already being able to put some of these ideas into action. It's given me more focus which I'm finding exciting and invigorating. It feels as if the stress of the future has been lifted from my shoulders which is an extremely liberating feeling.
Cathy is a wonderful human being and immediately makes you feel at home and special, like you're the only person she's helping. I never want to leave her cosy treatment room at the end of my sessions. I have had many different treatments over the years but I have never felt that they have been so tailored specifically for me. She really listens to what you say and changes things according to your needs. Nothing is too much trouble for her and she always finds time to answer any queries you might have between sessions. I can't recommend her highly enough.
I started seeing Cathy 4 weeks ago when my anxiety had hit rock bottom again! I had been through CBT and counselling but none of this seemed to give my anxiety a rest. 4 weeks on I feel like a changed woman. I feel confident, energised and ready to take on the world! I do not understand why the NHS spend so much money on CBT and counselling when hypnotherapy does such a fantastic job! The transformation in my wellbeing is amazing and I only have Cathy to thank for that!
Deciding to do a FLP session with Cathy is one of the best decision I've made. Knowing Cathy beforehand (meditation classes) I went into the session with quite high expectations. To say it lived up to my expectations would be an understatement and just doesn't do her work justice. Being able to see your own future, where you are heading and what parts of your life you should focus on is quite a strange experience but at the same time it just feels right. After spending time to reflect on the session and the results I got its almost as if I knew beforehand but these answers were buried by the noise of everyday life. Now knowing what aspects of my life to focus on for the fist time in a while I finally feel at peace. To anyone debating whether to try this or not I highly recommend it.
Future life progression is like nothing I've ever experienced before. Being able to see into my own future is something I never even thought was possible. At first I was unsure what to expect as I had never heard of this type of work before, but I came out of the green room extremely pleased and quite frankly overwhelmed.
I've found since my session with Cathy a weight has been lifted off my shoulders as I'm no longer frustrated/ stressed at not knowing what I'm doing with my life or feeling like I'm wasting my time. I'm now confident in what areas of my life I should be focusing on and a lot more relaxed knowing what the outcome will be to my efforts. It's an indescribable experience and I would recommend everyone to try it.
I've been a serial dieter for 40 years and have tried many many ways to overcome my problematic relationship with food-slimming clubs, cognitive behavioural therapy, eating disorders counselling, low calorie diets, detox, diet pills, to name but a few! I had just investigated the possibility of gastric band surgery. After many years of failure, you start to think there is no help out there. Food issues are much deeper than most people realise and it's really tough to shift the self-destructive behaviours. Several diets/solutions helped me loose loads of weight but it went back on again-there is much evidence to show that diets don't work actually and I am living proof of that! I totally understand that my food issues come from another place....not lack of will power, greed or no self-discipline. I decided to try hypnotherapy, something I'd never experienced before.
Cathy offered me a pre-session to understand where I was coming from, getting to know me and for me to feel comfortable with her approach. I felt confident to start investing time, finance and most importantly-hope-in working with Cathy. She listens very carefully to hear what I'm really saying and asks powerful questions. For me, hypnotherapy feels like a deep relaxation while still fully aware, focusing inwards to listen to myself, being led by my subconscious and what Cathy's guiding me through. Cathy listens with huge skill and draws out exactly the important clues to help her shape her therapy to your own individual problem areas. She tailors her approach completely around you it's not formulaic in any way. Warmth. Building trust.Respectful.
In just 6 sessions I'm on a new path of food balance, control over what I eat and 2.5 stone has gone in a few months without hardly trying. I've been able to draw on the healthy eating knowledge I've gained over the years, with further guidance from Cathy. I still have lots of work still to do to look after myself to the best of my ability. Walking. Pilates. Meditation. My biggest challenges come when I've had a day or more of 'bingeing'. In the past I'd become very disheartened, afraid to keep 'starting again' on these occasions, however I'm learning strategies to help myself recover quickly and move on.
After so many years battling without success, I need to see a long term sustainable outcome before I'm totally confident in myself. However I feel quietly confident that the work done with Cathy has touched on the most intransigent emotional memories and enabled me to learn new ways of being. Hypnotherapy has been such an effective, 'straight to the heart of the matter' and fast way of working- not years of repeated visits for therapy. And with the help of Cathy's fabulous CD's I use to keep me on track, and the offer to go back for a top-up session at any time, 5 months on and it's looking good!
Hi Cathy, I've been feeling really good since Thursday. Looking back on some of the things I said it just seems to make sense, its almost as if I knew beforehand but with so many other thoughts rattling around my head it got lost. Now knowing where I'm going and what to focus on certainly feels like a weight off my shoulders. I also wanted to thank you for taking the time to speak with me at the beginning, it really helped.
I visited The Green Room on a recommendation from a friend, I had no previous experience of hypnotherapy or other therapies available. The initial meeting to discuss my symptoms, I found to be very relaxed, friendly and most importantly, supportive. Cathy assured me that she would be able to offer me guidance, to assist myself in overcoming the chaos that was present at that time. A mutually agreeable date was sorted for my first session. Medication from my GP had just started at that time.
There had been no previous "Googling" on my part before attendance. Again, the meeting was as before and I was invited to make myself comfortable in the chair (blankets and drinking water also supplied). There were some "butterflies" in my stomach, but as Cathy started talking these were soon dispelled. Cathy was talking in a quiet, reassuring manner and I very quickly found myself responding, but I still was unsure. At one point she said "you may feel your arms are heavy now", I vividly remember thinking, I can lift my arm fine.............no I couldn't. That's the point that I felt this was for me!
I left that session with more questions than I had on arrival, but within a few days I had a couple of very vivid dreams and found answers to some of those questions. Some of the techniques that Cathy introduced me to, also helped dramatically in helping me get to sleep better and a better night's sleep.
A second session of hypnotherapy followed, with similar results and now I felt the benefit beginning, inasmuch that I felt better in myself.
A third session was attended, but I was extremely upset and didn't feel it was right to do anything that day. Cathy however, said this is the best time to address the issue. As this was work related I couldn't see the point, but from previous experience at The Green Room I felt confident to carry on. This session was based on EFT and all I can say is that for me, this helped me to deal with an issue I'd been dragging around for 8 years or so. That was brilliant, just brilliant.
I have used techniques from The Green Room to help me return to being a better individual and feeling so much better in myself. Work colleagues have said that I appear to have a "glow" about me now.
The medication is now being reduced, with a view to stopping soon.
I feel that I have amassed an armoury of tools to assist me in daily living now, all thanks to Cathy at The Green Room.
'Thank you so much Cathy.Love you and we had such a wonderful group.My eyes are now open.'
'Cathy was wonderful, loving, kind. Belief in all of us and working with our feelings and encouraging us to accept our feelings and just go with it.'
'I've really enjoyed these six week sessions, felt calmer, more confident and more trusting in my own instincts.'
'I thoroughly enjoyed every week, I found it interesting, fascinating and very enlightening- love Cathy.'
'Thank you for a lovely enjoyable time.Will miss you.'
'Amazing! She can even turn a logical sceptic like me!'
'This introduced me to new experiences that I would not normally look at. So very good for me to come out of my comfort zone.The venue was a good open space and Cathy was very clear and compassionate.'
'Love the structure of this course- very clear and easy to follow.Cathy was lovely!The right combination of professional, knowledgeable and guiding.'
'I would like the sessions to be longer!'
Sept '16 Beginners Meditation ...
My life has changed so much for the better since my sessions with Cathy, and her after care is superb. I have already passed her contact details to various friends. She is a very wise lady.
A big thank you to Cathy from the green room. She helped me through a difficult time with kindness and compassion. She was able to use all her expert knowledge of hypnotherapy and EFT to guide me through my difficulties. She was able to understand how I felt and what I needed when I didn't know myself. She is an amazing person and I would recommend her to anyone.
I had not attended any kind of therapy before but the moment that I spoke to Cathy she put me at ease. I have attended Hypnotherapy and Meditation Classes something that a year ago I never thought I would say.
Cathy has opened my mind to these therapies. I have met a lovely group of people at beginners meditation classes and will continue with this journey. Thank you Cathy for your expertise, help and support. I would
recommend anyone who needs help at a crossroads in their life to contact Cathy.
Thank you so much for carrying me through the healing process of my inner child. I have now made peace with my difficult childhood - incredibly you knew exactly when it was still needing addressing and when it was time for me to let go of the old labels - and I have now found a peace of mind I never imagined I could reach. It's great that you are also helping my husband with his current issues. I am especially grateful on behalf of my son who will now grow up with a mum who instead of being constantly distracted by crippling insecurities can be fully present to him and his needs. Hopefully thanks to your work with his parents, our son will be so well adjusted, he will never have the need for therapeutic work! 😉
I first came to the green in early 2015 after previously seeing several other counsellors whilst growing up, the usual apprehension and nerves gradually mounting on the journey to the green room. These were laid to rest instantly on meeting Cathy and walking into the green room. Whilst working with Cathy I have always felt fully supported and cared for and never isolated. I completely trust her and know I wouldn't have made the progress I have made with anyone else. Never before have I met someone who can help me verbalise my emotions so concisely and honestly, without judgement or criticism. Cathy is simply one of those people who makes you feel at ease straight away, one of the good guys in life and I am truly blessed to have found her and could not recommend her enough.
Simply put I love Cathy and owe her so much. She really did catch me when I was falling and provided me with the safe space to work through issues I have held onto for a long time.
So my love we've had tears laughter snot swearing and even a fire but we made it and I couldn't have done it without you.
I have nothing but praise, admiration and thanks for Cathy. I came to see Cathy with a fertility issue that dominated every aspect of my life. We had lots of underlying issues we worked through before this could be broached. Cathy did so with patience understanding and professionalism. She has taught me a range of coping strategies and made me feel good about myself again. She worked along side me on my IVF journey keeping me calm and focused and as a result I am now 12 weeks pregnant. I am so thankful to Cathy and her care, I would be in a very different place without her. I would highly recommend her to anyone however big or small the issue.
I am really enjoying the meditation classes- very thought provoking and you are doing a brilliantly skilful job with the group.
I HAD a huge fear of spiders and did not believe anything would get rid of it. The sight of a spider would cause extreme anxiety and panic attacks. My husband contacted Cathy and knew her patient, understanding and kind way would be perfect to help me. I was very sceptical and even after the first session did not believe it would work for me. With Cathy's support and encouragement she used a variety of techniques that amazed me. After only a few sessions I felt confident about a range of things, including spiders. Today I was so proud at being able to catch a spider in a glass and put it outside, something I believed I would never do. My advice to anyone would be to give it a try, what have you got to loose?
Thank you Cathy, a bigger spider is my next challenge!
My first impressions of going to counselling with my wife was would it actually work for me? I was not open to the idea at first, as I thought I was capable of resolving these issues that we were having.
However, I gave the sessions a go, as I felt this was the last resort for us.
At first I wasn't very comfortable, but Cathy soon helped change my outlook on the idea of counselling. It was easier than I originally imagined. We were able to discuss the different avenues and ways of resolving our marital issues which Cathy was great at. She made us believe we were capable of saving our marriage but that it would take commitment and outlined key aspects that we wouldn't have used previously to repair what was broken.
I would just like to say to anyone that is considering any form of counselling, would find that Cathy is very professional, fair and honest in her line of work. If you are looking for honesty from a counsellor who can truly help you, then Cathy is definitely for you as even though we sometimes believe we have the answers, more often than not we don't.
Cathy gave us the belief and help for our individual characters and was very sensitive to both our thoughts and needs. I would just like to thank Cathy for her great work.
I originally came to see Cathy while doing my Hypnotherapy course with Chrysalis in 2014 after some issues kept arising. I was tired of battling myself and wanted to deal with these issues for good. Cathy used hypnotherapy in the beginning with me, I was a bit concerned as I thought I was quite resistant but Cathy made me feel so comfortable that it was easy. I dealt with some past issues and felt more positive in my life that I decided I had got where I needed to with Cathy's help. But a few months later I was back seeing Cathy because I hadn't dealt with everything. I had been having issues with my husband for a number of years so Cathy used talking therapy with me to help resolve these problems. Me and Cathy discussed inviting my husband into these sessions so that me and my husband could resolve our issues together, which my husband agreed to. It wasn't an easy road, there were tears, frustration and anger, but with Cathy's guidance and knowledge we've came through the other side and thankfully me and my husband are better than ever!
I owe everything to Cathy, we wouldn't be where we are now if it wasn't for her help, patience, kindness and above all her time. I will always be eternally grateful to this wonderful, wonderful lady.
I attended the meditation for beginners course with Cathy and absolutely loved it! I found this course informative and fun. I learnt so much, and have enjoyed practicing what I have learnt at home. We covered so much over the weeks, and having access to the meditations at home via the Green room website is great. I would highly recommend this course to anyone starting out on their meditation journey, or like myself use meditation regularly, but want to learn more and look at meditation in more depth. Cathy is so lovely and friendly and puts everyone at ease. She really knows what she's talking about and it was a real joy to attend this course. Really looking forward to the next one.
Hi Cathy.....our work, really did help me organise my thoughts. You helped me put my crazy mind which was tiring me out, into some boxes which meant I could deal with them. As a result my relationship is much better and it finally feels like we are moving forward. I definitely benefitted from the work we did, and you were so calm and lovely, you made me feel so at ease, and that I could tell you anything and not be judged - which is an amazing feeling in itself!Just thought I'd let you know.
Take care lovely!
Cathy arranged a convenient time to call me and get to know me and my smoking habit a bit better. The conversation flowed and I was left looking forward to my appointment knowing I was in good hands.
I arrived for my evening appointment and was made to feel really welcome. The Green Room was warm with nice lighting and I immediately felt comfortable. As for Cathy, all I can say is wow! What a friendly, genuine and lovely lady.
Cathy put together a session very specific to me, my life and my habit. It involved a combination of facts unique to me ( jaw dropping! ) and hypnosis which again was tailored to suit me and my goals. All delivered in such a professional and caring
Iv been smoke free since but the thing that really stands out for me is how positive I feel about it all.
I would definitely recommend Cathy and The Green Room to anybody wishing to make positive changes.
Thanks again Cathy
I started seeing Cathy at The Green Room a few months ago as I was struggling with severe anxiety due to an issue from a few years ago. I was very reluctant to start hypnotherapy as I was unsure about whether it could help. However, after the first session I instantly knew I had made the right choice and my only regret is not doing it sooner. Cathy made me feel very welcome and at ease, her friendly and empathetic nature made the whole process a lot easier for me.
I never expected that after only 6 sessions my anxiety would be practically non- existent, an outcome that only a few months earlier I had thought to be unreachable. I also feel confident in knowing if it ever does start to creep back in I have the tools and techniques to extinguish it straight away.Thank you so much Cathy for all your help, I am extremely grateful and appreciative that you made this process a lot less painful that I originally thought it was going to be. I can safely say that if I ever have troubles again, I will certainly not hesitate to come back to The Green Room Clinic.
When I was at a place where I felt lost and out of control with mind full of negative thoughts, a friend told me about The Green Room and Cathy.
By the end of my first session I already felt calmer and more relaxed. Cathy creates this amazing natural welcoming, relaxed atmosphere which makes you open up with ease and confidence.
Cathy and myself have built me from ground up, in my own confidence and my own inner belief that I am capable in achieving in certain situations.I still see Cathy (april 2014) and I would highly recommend cathy to anyone. If you make one decision today make the one to go visit The Green Room today
This is a big thankyou for all your help you have given me. I have come a long way since I first started seeing you.
You have helped me get my life together. I can now go for a drive and not worry about what might happen and I am not so worried about heights.
I feel that I am free and can go on with living. This would not have been possible without your help. So again thankyou so much.
There were various things that made exams very daunting and difficult for me, but with help of cathy at The Green Room I was able to work through the entire exam process more calmly and easily than I thought was possible.
Cathy taught me exercises to help me keep a diary of my revision which meant I could plan and organise myself- something I've always struggled with. We then went through some hypnotherapy and heart math to help me keep calm and focussed whilst in the exam itself.
This really helped me to keep control of my nerves and stay positive. together we worked on my parental support, which for me meant I could work with my parents throughout this stressful time and not feel isolated like I have done in the past. This was all invaluable to me and my family as it allowed me clear focus and support just when i needed it, who knows where it could lead!
Thank you so much Cathy and Paston for giving me this positive experience it made the world of difference
My experience with has given me a perspective that I haven’t achieved since being a young child, where prospects of being a treasure hunting or getting rescued by a prince white horse were to be a sure reality.I am now looking forward to growing up, to exploring the world and I have realised that it can be achieved.
Cathy as a counsellor has done beyond what she ever needed to for me, she has supported me through overcoming an obstacle in my past that from hindsight affected me than more than I realised. She uses hypnotherapy, which I’d recommend to anyone as a tool for re-programming or simply de-stressing and giving you a time out from what seems an ocean of worries. It has allowed me an outlook that supports my future and allows me to stop sabotaging what could help, whether that is down to my views or my past.
Never could words satisfy the effect of what Cathy has done, but I’d recommend the safe environment that is The Green Room to anyone for past, present or future troubles.
Thankyou for all your help with my confidence. I was so worried about being calm for my daughters wedding and the speech I needed to give, I was petrified at the thought but it all went brilliantly!
I felt prepared and calm (as you can feel speaking to a room of people staring at you)!I used the heart math breathing before my speech and it really helped to keep control of my nerves.
I can honestly say it was worth every penny and I would recommend The Green Room to anyone worried about public speaking. Thankyou for all your help Cathy.
I have had two types of hypnotherapy with Cathy, my first one was to help me kick the habit of 5 a day cigarettes.Which I am happy to say I am now a non smoker thanks to Cathy.
My second course was to help me to be more assertive and I am happy to say I am a much more assertive person.
I absolutely loved the hypnotherapy with Cathy as my hypnotherapist and I found the whole experience very calming and relaxing and loved it and would definatly recommend Cathy to anyone, because Cathy has changed my life for the better.
Update on client one year on-
Thanks to you, some days I do feel amazing and proud of this new me.
It has taken me 60 years to find me and I'm still finding me from deep down inside.
I am still growing and blooming, if only you knew how long I have sat in the corner and have wanted to come out but always got put backin there.
not now...not anymore.Thankyou.
When I went to see Cathy it was for help with wedding anxiety. It was also for my panic around longstanding IBS.
I had already tried six sessions with the Wellbeing Service and paid for private counselling and nothing had worked. I was initially skeptical about parting with more money. When I saw that Cathy's first session is free of charge I was so impressed. I was there over an hour and a half and got to try hypnotherapy for the first time for free. what a fantastic idea. I knew from the start that Cathy's priority was to help me rather than the financial side. That sounds silly but it is something that everyone thinks about when they are looking for private help. Cathy never tried to drag out the sessions, she let me work at my pace and told me when she thought i was OK to go it alone.
I also needed to see if I 'clicked' with Cathy. I needn't have worried! She made me feel at ease from the second I pitched up. her warm, friendly and down to earth style was just what I was looking for. She puts so much effort in to the little touches. There is a blanket on the chair and a bottle of water next to you at every session which I loved.
I felt more confident from the first session and you get to take away a cd which is invaluable. I still listen to mine now when I need a 'boost'. the hypnotherapy really worked and it was the best money ive ever spent. I never thought id get through my wedding day without panicking but everyone commented on how calm I was which was all down to the hypnotherapy. I couldn't be more relieved.
It's great to know Cathy is there should I need to go back- to everyone wondering if this is for them, book up right now!
Thank you Cathy for making my wedding day so enjoyable xx
The Green Room is a very special place and I am so glad that I made the decision to meet cathy for my first appointment late last year in 2013.
I am currently still having sessions with Cathy and it is now feb 2014 but the journey I have made is quite mind blowing to date! I am a quietly confident person but I just felt that I wanted to reach my full potential and didnt want to get to the end of my life, saying I wish I had done......
To say that I am excited about my life ahead of me more than ever and that I have already achieved so much off my 'to do list' is proving to myself that nothingis impossible.
I would say to anyone go and do it!!
I can only say that if you have or had any pre-conceived ideas of what counselling or hypnotherapy are like, erase these thoughts from your mind and just let things happen.
I always had this frustration in my head that told me I needed to change the way I dealt with life, people, situations, goals, dreams. with the counselling sessions and exercises that Cathy has shown me, I have finally found the answers.
The hypnotherapy is quite something and I was not sure if I was going to respond to this treatment but wow it's better than drugs!!(please note i have never taken any!) I am hooked. Cathy gives you a cd that you can take away with you and practice at anytime or place.I can assure you it does work. I have to make time for me and stick to it.
Cathy is and excellent counsellor and hypnotherapist, whom I would recommend to anyone, she has all the ingredients that make her stand out from the crowd. Visit The Green Room, you wont look back I promise you.
I visited cathy as I felt I had lost some confidence and felt 'lost' as to where I was going in my career. Although I had ambitions to start my own business certain experiences along the way had knocked me and I felt distracted and didnt know if I had the courage to start on my own.
I had several sessions of hypnotherpay with cathy which I felt the effectrs from almost immediatly. I felt much calmer, stronger and more positive about my life and what I wanted to achieve. it really helped me to put things into perspective and now I feel so focussed and have much more drive and confidence to suceed.
The hypnosis c.d's that you take away are great to listen to in between sessions too making me feel very relaxed while listening to them at home.
Cathy immediatly makes you feel at ease with her and talking to her felt comfortable and she is easy to open up to.
If I ever needed any advice or needed anymore guidance with anything I wouldnt hesitate to visit her again, it's been a very positive experience indeed.
The journey I had in The Green Room therapy has guided me onto the path I needed to be.
It's centred my being, through a time I needed calm.a challenge to someone who's completely the opposite to calm!
I would highly recommend this style of therapy to others. I feel comfortable knowing if i get a wobbly moment I can go back through some of my hypnotherapy discs to boost myself back into gear! Havent needed to yet mind!
Life is challenging for everyone at times.If you are going through a struggling time and you don't know how to cope then this may help you.I have every confidence it will.
Huge thanks to a wonderful lady.
I was recomended The Green Room by a collegue. Cathy is so easy to talk too she makes you feel relaxed and her room is very cosy with candles.
I had some hypnotherapy, which helped me a lot and also talking through my problems has made me feel so much better.
I am now more confident and have come a long way. I would highly recomend you give Cathy a try there is light at the end of the tunnel.
I went to see Cathy after a traumatic time in my life, I could feel myself getting closer and closer to the edge and needed to regain confidence in myself, get back to my old self and start living my life again rather than just surviving.
I wasn't too sure what to expect with hypnotherapy but knew Cathy and trusted her completely to help if she could - and she really could!
I now feel full of life and bubbling over with anticipation of what I can do and with confidence. I have finally been able to file away the negative thoughts and feel I actually have brain space to concentrate on what I want rather than what was taking over. It's a great feeling.
The EFT has also helped me with coping techniques and feel sure it will help me in certain situations and am positive I can cope a lot better than before.
Thank you Cathy! I am recommending you to everyone!
-Update on client-
Just had to say a BIG thank you! With your help I faced a possible meeting with my demon today, for the first time in a couple of years.
I'll admit I waived but used the strength you've given me and set off to the event he might be at. Even better he didn't turn up (a room full of happy people!) but I feel happy I went.
I'd be lying if I said it was easy, had a migraine all weekend, but I did it - whoop! Put a red bracelet on just as a reminder that I have the power.
You are amazing!
Thank you! I know he is still loitering at places I might be but now I feel I can cope, well a lot better than I could! I have the strength in so many ways now!
You give the power, you push it back to us and remind us how to use it. And not just with this situation, it's given me strength throughout and I feel I can face anything. Keep the good work up, I know you will, so many more people for you to empower
I contacted cathy because I had a block in moving forward with something significant in my life.
I felt a connection and at ease the first time I met Cathy and after a couple of sessions felt more confident and able to move forward.
I really appreciated the fact that Cathy was able to work around my schedule with no hassle and meet me in the evenings.
If I ever needed anymore guidance with anything I wouldn't hesitate to contact Cathy, thank you.
Since the start of seeing Cathy things have some what changed.
I never thought I would be the type of person who would need to talk to someone but how wrong was I.
Cathy has been one of the best things I have ever done and I can't thank her enough.
The whole process has helped me evaluate what's important to me in my life and to also learn to put myself first.
Since the beginning of my journey I've become engaged, expecting my first baby, what can I say I'm truly happy.
Thank you Cathy for everything :)
I went to see Cathy as I had some anxiety problems a few years ago but they had come back all of a sudden in full force. It was affecting every aspect of my life, personal and professional.
Work was becoming an increasing struggle (to the point where I could not complete some of my duties) and in my own life I was feeling more and more isolated and like I was holding back the real me.
Before my journey at The Green Room, meeting new people absolutely terrified me so as you can imagine I was extremely tense.
From the moment I saw Cathy she instantly made me feel like a massive weight had been lifted and that I had nothing to worry about. Straight away I felt at ease and relaxed enough to open up to her, so much so that I wish I had done it sooner.
My journey at The Green Room has 100% changed my life for the better.
I feel as though I have stripped back all of the emotions that were trapped inside of me and have been able to work through them – at my own pace.
I have been able to not just ‘accept' this is the way I am, but to understand the reasons why and realise that this is okay.I feel so much calmer and in control and I know that if I ever have a bad day I can always listen to one of my hypnotherapy cd's which is guaranteed to steer me back in the right direction.
Alongside my hypnotherapy, Cathy has also shown and taught me many techniques that I can use as and when I need to which I have found extremely helpful.
I feel I have finally discovered the person that I knew was there inside me all along, but had become lost somehow and frightened of the world. I have been able to rediscover the real me, and I owe it all to Cathy.
Thank you so much Cathy for all of your help! You have given me wings and now I am able to fly xx
After having lots of family trouble at home I started to suffer from depression and anxiety.
I suffered with these for a couple of years and started to become fustrated with myself as I didnt want to feel like this anymore and antidepressents didn't seem to help.
It crossed my mind to try hypnotherapy and I found Cathy on the internet and I am so pleased I chose to go with her, she is absolutley fantastic!
She makes you feel welcome, treats you like your own individual and is so understanding.
The Green Room is lovely and cosy, I have had all my sessions since the season has turned Winter and it is always cosy and warm. Cathy sends me home after every session with Cd's to listen to and they are fantastic, they even send me off into a deep sleep so they help me relax.
Seeing Cathy has completely changed my life it got to the point where I couldn't relax going for a meal with my boyfriend or normal day to day things like going food shopping in a big supermarket.
I can finally say I can now see light at the end of the tunnel and it is all thanks to Cathy and her wonderful little room xxx
We'd been recommended the hypnobirthing course by our midwife, and after reading up about it decided it was something we'd like to try and we're so glad we did.
As a first time Mum, my perception of labour and birth was primarily based on horror stories I'd been told.
The Hypnobirthing course has helped me to see labour and birth from a whole new perspective- a much more positive one. And what's more, my partner and I now have a genuine excitment for it, especially as the course has helped to define his role as the birth partner, making him feel just as involved and now made it really feel as though this is something we'll be going through together.
The entire course has been a genuinly wonderful and valuable experience. We could not recommend Cathy more highly, she has made us feel comfortable and explained everything in such a lovely way, just fantastic.
C, R and S's ...
I was always quite skeptical about counselling and hypnotherapy as I had had a few sessions of counselling years ago which I didn't feel helped.
As soon as I met Cathy I felt at ease and like I had known her for ages!
I can honestly say she has changed my opinion. The hypnotherapy and counselling have completely changed my life and I couldn't recommend it enough!
All my friends think I'm on commission how much I rave about it!
I have finally dealt with issues I never thought I would be able to.
My six year old daughter was becoming increasingly anxious about life in general which was manifested itself mainly as feeling she needed the toilet, a lot. It seemed to come on really quickly, round about the time of the school nativity play which she was really nervous about, and within a week she was going to the toilet every six or seven minutes, pretty much throughout the day and worrying about if there would be toilets when we went out.
We had her checked for urine infections and the Dr referred us to the urology department, we got an appointment for about three months after that GP visit which wasn't too encouraging.
We felt it was psychological mainly and took her to see Cathy who very quickly gained her confidence and soon had her drawing pictures and talking about life. Cathy gave us a rough idea of how many sessions she might need, making it clear this was our daughter's journey and she may need more or less than that.
Our daughter seemed
immediately happier - we didn't have to stop for a wee on the way home whereas on the way there we had stopped three times - and over the following three weeks was back to her old happy, bubbly self. She was very happy to see Cathy and confident enough to have the sessions on her own with Cathy.
She's not a hugely confident individual but, while she still does like to know where the toilets are, she is properly back to normal. Our daughter has enjoyed having her own stories (hypnosis) written and read by Cathy very much, they were individual tailored to her interests and definitely made her feel very special and appreciated.
We appreciated the good humour and non-judgemental acceptance Cathy showed to her, she has made a big difference to our family.
If only I had discovered Cathy and the Green Room years ago. I am a life-long migrainer and also suffer from sleep-disturbance, a combination which has caused me much anxiety over the years. So much so that I had to make a very difficult decision to give up a fantastic job because I could no longer manage the pain of weekly migraine and the responsibilities of a very respjob. This led me to a feeling of worthlessness and wondering what I was doing with my life, especially as both my children had left home and were happily settled with their respective partners. Unfortunately the migraine did not improve even though I had banished the worries of work, so I decided to seek Cathy’s help on the recommendation of a very dear friend.
Cathy instantly put me at ease and, despite some skepticism on my part, I was able to freely share my anxieties with Cathy and I surprised myself by being very receptive to many aspects of her therapy sessions. After only three sessions, I am now feeling much more positive about life and although there is no cure for migraine, they are less frequent and I am sleeping better, with the help of some wonderful, soothing cd’s that Cathy has tailored to my needs. I’m feeling more energetic and looking forward to getting back to some creative hobbies that I just hadn’t had the inclination to do for years.
So, don’t hesitate – if you need some help with something that is affecting your life, get in touch with Cathy, I’m sure you won’t regret it.
I went to see Cathy at the Green Room to help with my fear of flying. I really needed it to work, but I was also sceptical. I need not have worried.
Cathy put me at ease straight away and I felt very comfortable with her. I had three sessions, and by the time I was due to fly, I couldn't stop grinning about it.
When on the flight and I began to panic, all I could hear was Cathys calming voice in my head, and I soon settled down.
I'll never be a fan of flying but I can now look forward to a holiday with excitement rather than fear
When I first came to The Green Room, I was a little nervous and apprehensive about facing my weaknesses, and what that might involve. I need not have worried, as Cathy immediately put me at ease. It felt more like visiting a friend than dealing with a problem.
My problem was that I had stopped drinking, because I had no 'off switch', and as I didn't drink very often, drinking binges gave me terrible hangovers. I wanted to feel in control and relaxed in social situations without alcohol.
Through very few sessions (four in total), we worked through the reasons why I had started using alcohol in the first place. The rest of it is a mystery! I found the hypnotherapy incredible. As someone who found it hard to relax, I didn't think it would work properly for me. It certainly did. And I not only solved my problem drinking, I have also learned a new way of coping with stress.
Thank you Cathy and the Green Room.
I had never considered seeking counselling in the past but some recent occurrences and the realisation that I was ready to face some long established underlying issues in my life and needed help to do so prompted me to give it a try.
I have been attending the Green Room for a few months now and it has totally changed my life.
Cathy has a unique way of helping you to understand the root of your problems and to identify the obstacles holding you back however complex, she helps you realise that you deserve happiness and fulfilment and gives you the tools and encouragement to reach a place of contentment and wellbeing.
You feel at ease the moment you meet Cathy and know without doubt that you can be totally honest and open with this lovely lady that never judges or makes assumptions.
She helps you set goals or targets and in small achievable steps guides you to accomplish them and when you do she makes each small step of success feel like a massive victory. Cathy keeps you motivated and is always available when you need extra encouragement.
The hypnotherapy works alongside the counselling enhancing the whole experience and adding another dimensioning and life skill that you can use in many situations and circumstances.
I cannot thank Cathy enough for what she has done for me, she has been truly inspirational. My journey isn't finished yet but I have certainly come along way in the last few month and I now know without doubt that with her continued help, passion for her work and uncompromising care and kindness I will make the changes that I now know I deserve and will enhance my life forever.
When I first visited Cathy I had no knowledge of how Hypnotherapy worked, or indeed what was involved, but was feeling quite desperate to find a solution to the severe anxiety I often felt when being abroad, following a serious illness I had ten years ago whilst abroad.
I had previously tried counselling and CBT sessions arranged through my GP in the past without success. This negative 'situation' was affecting my life.
I knew from my first meeting with Cathy that she completely understood how I felt. Her words describing my emotions were so accurate and precise - it was amazing. She truly understood and genuinely wanted to help me. I felt a little apprehensive regarding hypnotherapy, but after my first experience I found it was very similar to meditation and found it really calming and very helpful.
It was good to talk through events, because by doing this Cathy would then structure my 'programme' to find eventual healing. Also the CD's I played at home were very helpful.
Four visits on and I truly feel so different. My confidence in travelling has returned and my negative experiences and thoughts no longer bother me, they have disappeared.
It's difficult to explain what an incredible journey I have had with Cathy, only to say she is a very special, caring, clever & kind lady and I am so grateful that I have met her.
