I was really surprised and very happy with the results I saw almost immediately after my session with Amanda. We worked on a really stressful situation involving a family law-suit that has been part of my life for the last year. Every time anything to do with this issue came up (which was often) I could feel my pulse start to race, eyes get a little teary and really just physically feel myself filling up with of so much anger and hurt.
When working with Amanda in this session as we went through the many different aspects of this issue ?feelings of betrayal? I could physically feel those feelings start to shift and change and other feelings begin to come up ?non comprehension? we worked on those and many more, it was like peeling back the layers of an onion.
At the time and immediately after it felt like a cathartic experience and an amazing opportunity to express some things in a safe space that I didn?t feel I had another outlet for. I left pleased with those feelings as a result, but unsure as to whether I would really seen any genuine change in my reaction to these issues.
But to my total surprise the next few times I received emails and phone calls relating to this instead of the ?usual? racing pulse, anger and hurt, I just felt calm. That is not to say my opinions have changed on what is going on, more that I am just able to manage myself better as a direct result of this work that I did with Amanda.
In fact feeling calm as opposed to angry has been really beneficial in moving the process forward, without allowing the thoughts of it to dominate my every waking moment, it really felt like a genuine release of a huge amount of negativity.
Amanda was wonderful she has such a calm and open way of working with occasional humour which makes the space feel very light and free, some of things I was expressing were very personal to me and I never felt vulnerable or judged. I would recommend Amanda to everyone and in fact have been doing just that since my own revolutionary experience!
Thanks Amanda! x

Emotional Freedom Technique. Three words so ridiculously self explanatory, yet so incredibly vague. Little did I know that it was just those three words I needed to put things right. Ten years is a long time to be dealing with anything, let alone something as self destructive as an eating disorder. Counselling, therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, doctors, nurses, hospitals, friends, family?. I?d done it all. Eventually I came to terms with the fact that I just wasn?t strong enough to beat it and would always carry it with me. After ten years of ANYTHING, you start getting used to it. In these cases, familiarity is probably the most dangerous thing of all as you allow something to become a part of you, enough so to control you, your lifestyle, your health and your well being.
I?d heard about Amanda through a website recommendation, and whilst knowing nothing about EFT or NLP, it had been spoken about enough times for it to spark my curiosity. I was also willing to give anything a try? except medication. I did NOT want to be medicated as I was terrified of losing control of other aspects of my life.
I met Amanda with an open mind yet was extremely nervous about how much i?d have to expose myself to her. My biggest concern was confidentiality and lack of empathy. I was terrified of being thought of as ridiculous. I was actually amazed to come face to face with such a warm, friendly, approachable woman. It was like being hugged, it felt so good to be sat with her, sipping tea, discussing the what?s, how?s, who?s and so on. I couldn?t stop talking, she?d unleashed this floodgate inside me where I had to come clean about everything I was doing to myself, it felt so liberating ? and we hadn?t even started!!!! What shocked me most was discovering things about myself which I had obviously locked away without being in any way aware. What I might have thought the issue was, actually masked something which had once affected me even more so than a trauma itself.
It?s extremely hard to write a testimonial about something so personal. Our troubles are our own, we live with our demons, we fight our battles, we carry our burdens and too often, we give up. We come to terms with them and accept them because we just don?t know how to beat them. I can?t recommend Amanda enough. I have to say that when I went to visit her it was more through curiosity than anything else. I?d long since past the point of desperation where you?re willing to try ANYTHING. I had tried it all, and none of it had worked. This was just something new I was curious to explore. They?re not wrong when they say things happen when you least expect them to?. Amanda was incredible. What she?s done for me has no pay back. What price can you put on peace of mind?

I just found your business card in a cupboard in my kitchen and wanted to drop you a line to let you know how things have been since I had my session with you.
I have to say that the relationship between my mother and I is outstanding these days, I really feel that we worked out the blockages that were really getting in the way of her and I reconnecting. I didn?t tell anyone that I had had the treatment for a long while so that I could judge the effects for myself. I started spontaneously putting my arm through Mums when we were out walking and showing her affection that didn?t feel awkward. I have also noticed that when she cuddles me now I don?t freeze and feel uncomfortable but can hug her back like a normal family. We found out a few months ago that we are expecting another baby in Feb, the real turning point for me when I knew the sessions had worked was when my Mum was visiting for the day and I had an overwhelming feeling to ask her to be at the birth with us to share the experience. It was such a natural feeling and made me (and her) so happy. I don?t know if you remember but that was what I envisioned at the end of our session for the future.

Amanda has a very gentle and effective way of getting to the bottom of whatever is the root cause of the problem and quickly and efficiently releases it. I felt like a burden had been lifted from my shoulders in one session only. I felt energised and happy afterwards. Amanda has an intelligent and kind approach and I am very grateful to her for all the time she has personally invested in becoming such a professional and successful practicioner
