Challenged by autoimmune disease, serious financial distress, and the untimely death of my mother; stress had completely broken me down to the point of utter depression and living life in constant fear of the future.

But after putting to use the simple guidance and wisdom that Gillian Padgett teaches in Let Stress Heal Your Life, in just a short while I have completely turned things around and have accomplished goals that I thought were impossible for me to achieve.

If you are tired of letting stress dominate your existence, please read this book and put Gillian’s teachings to work. I promise you it will change your life.

When I became ‘stuck’ in a period of grief, counselling gave me hope and guidance to find my way back to joy and creativity. With Gillian’s help, I was able to get back on course. I am living life fully again and looking forward to the future. ML

I just want to thank you for the excellent therapy I received from you. It really made a change in my life. I was involved in two separate motor vehicle accidents, both rear enders … was having trouble sleeping, and finding it extremely difficult to drive … making my life extremely stressful. I have always found it hard to relax, or visualize changes in events.

After only a few sessions with you, I was able to sleep without medication, and to eventually drive. It has been 9 months since our last session and I am still able to use the exercises you taught me to calm myself and relax … I even do these things unconsciously. I have not required any sleeping medication since the time of our therapy.

I want to thank you for listening, understanding, and then organizing the therapy in a manner that was easy for me to follow and achieve success with. I am grateful for the insight my return to work facilitator had in referring me to you, and appreciate your willingness to work with me.

I had been suffering chronic stress for about 10 years, both work and personal, and requested a referral from my employer to see Gillian. Gillian has a gift of being able to listen and empathize without losing focus or her intent. She is sincere in her efforts to help those who wish to help themselves. She has a veritable arsenal of physical and mental exercises to provide to a task-oriented person such as myself. Her knowledge extends across a wide field of disciplines in the health services arena. Gillian Padgett is a true professional and a very humanitarian individual. CDH

Having gone through many stressful situations over the past several years and, having it all come to a head last summer, when Gillian mentioned that hypnotherapy helps deal with stress I was willing to give it a shot. I truly believe it has helped me deal and interact with people in a completely different way. I am clear on what needs to be done and/or said. I have the ability to stop and regroup, instead of freaking out and taking on too much. I know when enough is enough. Having a few key phrases, that work for me specifically, and saying them over and over again helps me to decompress and continue on with whatever was stressing me out in a different manner. MP

I went to Gillian for hypnosis to assist me in losing weight and in 4 sessions she helped me to focus my goals on getting healthy in all areas of my life. She has definitely helped me to make many positive changes in my life including taking better care of myself so that I can take better care of my family. Thanks Gillian! JC

The time I spent with you enabled me to gain a new perspective that has had a lasting value in my life. The simple yet effective strategies you mapped out for me along with your relaxation tape gave me the means to cope. Your practical view of health and wellness is something that I return to often.

While managing my stress level is still very much ‘a work in progress’, you have given me the right tools to carry on a high energy lifestyle and stay healthy. Yours was a gift that keeps on giving!

I would just like to thank you for all your time and help which helped me through my exams. I did pass, in fact I got an ‘A’ which was a tremendous surprise and far beyond my expectations. Undoubtedly it shows credit to your work. I will now be going to Cardiff University which is just where I wanted to go. Thanks once again. K

Bath, England

My employers … referred me to Gillian for counselling following the breakdown of my marriage. I was in a very distraught and emotionally unbalanced state and unable to face a future without my husband who had left me without warning to live with another woman. Gillian helped me to like myself again, to stop feeling a failure, to regain my self-confidence and be a more positive person … and … turned my life around from a seemingly worthless state to one that can be enjoyed without the need to rely on someone else for personal happiness. I am happier with myself now than I have ever been. AT

Thank you for helping me to return to work. I had not left home after being attacked in the street walking home from work. I am so glad Victim Support suggested my mother took me to see you. The hypnosis was easy, I felt good afterwards, and it only took a few appointments to be able to walk around Bristol and feel safe again. J
