Can't recommend enough  
Matt on August 30, 2018 at 14:45:10
Before I met Uschi I was suffering really badly from Anxiety, it made me want to avoid events and was really hurting my prospects. I had had cognitive behavioural therapy but it didn't really help me that much. I was unsure about trying out hypnotherapy, its not something which has ever been offered to me before. I emailed Uschi to ask if what I was dealing with was something she could help with. She invited me in for a free 15 min consultation where I explained my problems in more depth and she explained how she could help. Deciding to get treatment through Uschi was one of the best decisions I've ever made. If you're not sure like I was at the time, the consultation is a really good idea to attend. She always made me feel really relaxed and made special adjustments to the room to help me further. It's not something I find easy to talk about but speaking with Uschi was great. As a result of my sessions I have learnt why I actually suffer with anxiety, although there are still bad and good days, finally the good days are beginning to outnumber the bad and I find myself doing things I wouldn't have previously done before. She also taught me techniques regarding dealing with anxious moments and how I can begin to bring myself out of these moments. Before starting treatment I would have entered a spiral of anxious decline where all I could think about was my anxiety. Now I simply follow the techniques I have been shown and after a while I can begin to bring my anxiety under control. In the future I will continue to use the resources Uschi has given me to help me through difficult patches. If need be I would 100% return to Uschi again for help or advice.

Say goodbye to your phobias  
Debbie Nott on August 11, 2018 at 08:54:42
I decided to make an appointment to see Uschi after suffering a terrifying needle phobia for 20plus years. As with most phobias you feel powerless to control your fears and anxiety culminating in feeling ‘stupid’ or ‘embarrassed’ when it happens in front of people after the event . Even the mention of the word or watching people having injections on the TV would send me into a panicked state. I have an operation coming up and I wanted to be able to deal with it calmly. The actual operation held no fear for me but the blood tests and anaesthetic did. Absolute terror for me. After our first session I felt very different like a switch had been turned off. We have only had two sessions and I can’t believe how different I feel. The fear has gone replaced with indifference. I haven’t had the operation yet but I have been able to watch the medics on TV giving injections with no reaction whatsoever! Uschi has given me some coping methods too if the fear begins to take hold. I would recommend Uschi to help anyone needlessly suffering these awful phobias. Help is out there! Do it.
Uschi Martin:  Thank you so much Debbie, for your kind words and recommendation. With that phobia now gone, the coping methods are really helpful for any kind of un-ease.

My new and better life thanks to Uschi  
RB on August 07, 2018 at 16:27:14
Having suffered with inescapable stress and anxiety for many years, I had resorted to believing this was me now and I would just have to put up with it. But in reality these emotions were holding me back and I desperately wanted to be as happy as everyone else seems. After seeing Uschi my whole life has changed. I no longer have butterflies, am not envious of others happiness and feel truly happy everyday in spite of lifes trials. I cant thank Uschi enough for this and highly recommend her, in fact I already have!!
Uschi Martin:  It's been a pleasure working with you RB. Thank you for your kind words and recommendation.

Very happy customer  
Phoenix on July 24, 2018 at 16:48:04
After suffering with chronic and debilitating anxiety for many years, which I had tried to deal with myself, I decided to embark on a course of treatment/therapy with Uschi. Wow, what a difference she has made to my life !!.....I met Uschi initially as a massage customer and felt really comfortable and at ease with her which is why I decided to try some counselling sessions with her. I can’t praise Uschi enough, after just a few sessions my anxiety has completely disappeared, it’s as though she has switched something off in my head !! I feel like the old me and that I have my life back again - stress and anxiety free !
Uschi Martin:  Dear Phoenix, thank you so much for your kind words and the positive review !

Wedding anxiety conquered  
Natalie on July 11, 2018 at 16:21:33
I booked an appointment with Uschi because I was worried that my anxiety would ruin my wedding day and it would be a case of "getting through" the day rather than actually enjoying it. I knew I wouldn't sleep the night before and I thought that would mean that I would look tired and feel awful. Uschi was fantastic, after the introductory session I knew I wanted to book a few sessions with her because I immediately felt she could help. She has such a calming and reassuring manner and her questions make you realise why you feel the way you do and how you can go about changing the way you think. The techniques she taught me, particularly the tapping movements, really worked. And her audio clip was great, I found it so soothing. I listened to it last thing before going to bed the night before the wedding and again at 7am on the morning. Despite only having two hours sleep that night, it wasn't a night of stomach-churning anxiety as I had expected it to be, but a night of excitement looking forward to the day ahead. I couldn't wait to get out of bed and start enjoying the day! Uschi had reassured me that no bride sleeps well the night before and you don't feel tired because of the adrenalin so I wasn't "abnormal" if I didn't sleep! And she was right, I didn't feel tired at all, I didn't feel anxious either, just excited. I had been particularly nervous about the moment I would leave the house and get in the car with my dad to drive to the venue, but it was just fantastic, the neighbours were out to wave me off and I enjoyed everything. All my friends and family commented on how happy and relaxed I looked throughout the day, one even used the word "serene" and then we laughed because that is never a word anyone would use to describe me normally. Uschi helped me enjoy and savour the best day of my life and I feel that I can use what I have learnt about myself and the techniques in future situations where anxiety might be an issue. Thank you!
Uschi Martin:  Dear Natalie, it's been a pleasure to support you and help make your Wedding day, a day to remember :) Thank you so much for your review!

Methods that work  
Fleur on June 11, 2018 at 20:29:32
Before i came along i was really sturggling with anxiety and sleep, im glad that i invented time into the sessions because i came away with loads of techniques to use to help myself be calm and face the night, ive also learnt that my fears were irrational and not as bad as they seemed in my own mind. I’ve continued to use what I learnt and will do for the forseeable future!
Uschi Martin:  Thank you so much Fleur !

Confidence / Positivity / Empowered  
Sharon on June 03, 2018 at 18:53:26
I have a severe fear of being out of my depth in water which has ruined many holidays. Uschi has helped me to replace the traumatic thoughts with positive ones and to keep building on them. The sessions I have had will also help me with other areas of my life with positive reinforcements rather than the negative inner critic.
Uschi Martin:  Dear Sharon, thank you for your kind words and recommendation.

Switched off the panic  
Margaret on May 31, 2018 at 15:24:39
I had suffered from panic attacks for many years and tried lots of different ways to deal with them but none of them worked. I had an event on the horizon and was worried that it would trigger the panic attacks again. Uschi listened to my history and gave me some tools to cope. The event in question would have been a real nightmare as all of my worst trigger events happened but I stayed calm throughout and the panic attacks never happened. It seemed to me as though a switch had been turned off in my head.
Uschi Martin:  Dear Margaret, thank you so much for your review and recommendation.

Uschi is so kind and patient, and helped me so much when I felt there was no hope.  
Miss P on April 10, 2018 at 09:21:45
I was feeling very depressed and upset when I first went to see Uschi, following a bereavement and other issues bothering me. Uschi was very kind and patient, and was very positive that she could help me. She helped me to unlock the thought processes constantly troubling me, and to learn some techniques to change my thought patterns. This made me more relaxed and less stressed. Uschi always explained what we were going to be doing and how it should help me. I learnt to not be so hard on myself, and to gain some confidence in myself again. It didn't take many sessions to help me, and whilst I still feel I have a way to go before I truly feel myself again, Uschi has helped me to cope with life again. I would definitely recommend friends to her, and in fact already have!
Uschi Martin:  Miss P, it was a pleasure working with you. Thank you for the recommendation.

I was recommended to Uschi as I wanted to be more confident at presenting to groups.

I’d tried lots of different rational tips & techniques but felt it was something more deep-rooted.

I liked Uschi’s straightforward style right away.  She was clear & explained everything to me even the fact that its wasn’t going to be long-term.

I understand the process but had no idea really how it worked but I just know it did! Even after only a couple of sessions.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Uschi.

I had some therapy with you way back August / Sep 2014 for smoking cessation Thanks to you and my subconscious I have been nicotine and free all of this time.

My weight is coming down which is helping my diabetes plus Ive joined a marshall arts club which is nourishing my spirit and my exercise needs.

After many, many times of trying it was you and your approach and techiques that helped me finally to overcome my life destroying addiction.

I came to see Uschi as I was suffering from anxiety, it was getting to the point where I couldn’t even walk into my work office without standing outside first convincing myself that I had to walk in and go to work.

It was effecting not just work but my life as a whole and I was avoiding decision and making bad decision cause I was over thinking and working myself up about the smallest of issues.

Uschi was so calm and got me talking about things that I thought had no connection to my anxiety but were actually the starting point of it.

Uschi was very professional and made me feel at ease during each session, she even let me take my shoes off to feel more relaxed !

I had 3 session with Uschi and after every one I came out feel better by the end of my 3rd session things were already on the up, my friends and family noticed straight away the benefits and most importantly how I was heading back to being the relaxed and calm person they had know for so long.

It’s been 6 months since I last saw Uschi and my life has fully turned round, I hardly feel anxious and if I start to feel that way I know how to tackle it so it doesn’t slow me down or bring me down.

The first step to make the call was hard but I will always be grateful to Uschi for helping me and making the whole process simple, effective and most of all making a huge improvement to my life.

I found my sessions with Uschi to be really useful.

She is very personable and professional, and I left each session in a better place than when I started.

What I took away has helped me greatly.

Coming to see you before going into mediation with my husband to discuss financial settlement was an enormous help to me.
I was feeling extremely anxious and unwell leading up to the date and making the decision to have a session with you enabled me to enter into the mediation cool and calm without any anxiety.  

It was quite amazing how different I felt, the anxiety had calmed down and I went into the session feeling strong and confident, quite a huge change from how I had been feeling previously.  

And importantly, I was able to maintain my pose and dignity throughout this emotional situation during the discussions. 

My friend commented on how much better I looked after my session with you, much more at ease and relaxed. 
Thank you, I so appreciate the help you gave me.
