If you would like to discuss your unique needs with me them please feel free to contact me in complete confidence, and together we will discuss the ways in which I can help you.
Depression, Low Self-Worth, Trauma
I can’t thank Neil enough. I hit a crisis point where I couldn’t manage my negative thoughts any longer and couldn’t find a way out of my depression. I had a traumatic childhood and the recent death of my partner triggered memories that sent me into battle with old traumas. I was exhausted, any self-esteem, confidence and self-worth I had disappeared.
With Neil’s help I have now started to change my life back into a more positive and fulfilling one. He helped me recognise, accept and change my negative thought patterns through a combination of CBT, hypnosis and NLP.
His work is unique, and his therapy responds to you as a unique individual. I was at ease as soon as I met Neil. His empathy and reassuring approach were a big part of my progress. I only had several sessions and thought I’d need a lot more at the start, but he has equipped me with the resources to help me continue with moving forward.
I’m not stuck any longer in a permanent pattern of negative thoughts and I’ve accepted and moved on from my past. My confidence, self-esteem and self-worth are returning. I'm feeling much more relaxed and enjoying my work and relationships again. Thanks Neil.
Depression, Low Self-Esteem
I went to see Neil as I felt if I didn't do something about how I was feeling I might do something really stupid to myself. I knew I was feeling very unhappy and possibly depressed. I chose to put my all into helping others, until one day it hit me that I couldn't cope anymore. I needed some professional help to get me through this.
Meeting Neil was the best thing I could ever have done. He made me feel comfortable, relaxed and reassured that he could help me. Having listened to my issues Neil was able to create a programme that suited me best, this included, CBT, NLP and Hypnosis. Following this course I now have the tools I need to keep me grounded, positive and focussed on how to deal with my daily life.
Neil made the whole process enjoyable and there was no pressure, we agreed after our initial consultation the number of sessions required. Thanks Neil, I feel stronger and happier with myself and I feel I can deal with daily demands in a much more positive way.
Anxiety, Depression, Trauma
I contacted neil to find out if hypnotherapy would be a suitable option for me to address anxiety, depression and total lack of motivation. For over three years, I had been suffering from anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts, and a sever lack of self-preservation and motivation towards life in general. I was feeling emotionally exhausted, hopeless and anxious about seeing people in general, to the point where I had become very withdrawn.
Neil he made me feel very relaxed and gave me hope with addressing my issues. Neil tailored the treatment to my needs and used a mixture of hypnotherapy, NLP, CBT, and coaching techniques, which I had not come across before. These sessions worked to help me identify and change my negative thinking patterns, learn new self-management skills, and build my self-esteem and confidence in myself and my new abilities.
My anxiety is now minimal and easily manageable. My depression has now lifted, and I am now pro-active and making big plans for my future. I now feel good about being me and I have a much more positive outlook, where my future now looks bright.
Engaging with Neil was like a breath of fresh air and gave me hope for the future. Neil is very approachable, knowledgeable, caring and passionate about the work he does. Within the first 10 minutes I felt totally comfortable with Neil where I could open up with my thoughts and feelings around painful traumatic issues in my past. I felt Neil really understood me due to his own life experiences, unlike other therapists I have seen.
The techniques and tools that Neil taught me have been invaluable to me and I continue to use these daily in shaping my new life.
I Highly recommend Neil to anyone who is suffering from anxiety, depression or any trauma.
I came to see Neil to work on my Anxiety. The Main Practices that Neil has introduced me to that I feel have provided me with the most benefit are Journaling regularly, stating things I’m proud of and what I have learnt each day, as I feel this has really improved my self esteem as it shows me that I am positively progressing day by day.
Also, to carry out thought records when I feel anxious to try and note my automatic thoughts in anxious situations and readjust them into thinking more positively. This technique has really helped me see situations in a better light; therefore I feel less anxious and more comfortable in situations that trigger my anxiety.
Cultivated Minds is a great practice, I would definitely recommend to others who are looking for Life Coaching & Clinical Hypnotherapy.
(CB, Undergraduate, Sheffield)
I cannot recommend Neil highly enough after working with my 15 year old son whose mental health suffered greatly in February.
In the short time he has been seeing him he has provided him with the coping mechanisms and skills that have not only got him back on track now but will take him into adulthood too!
I am so pleased to ‘have my son back’ these sessions have been worth their weight in gold.
Irreatable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Neil has been helping me with my IBS. Since seeing Neil, my IBS flare ups only happen around every 6 weeks, rather than daily, so I now see Neil for a top up session once every 6 weeks. Neil has helped me to establish my mind-body connection.
I highly recommend Neil to anyone seeking help with IBS.
Fear of Thunder (for 50 years)
Hi Neil, I just wanted to thank you so much for your session with mum. She says that it has helped by some.
I've been overjoyed and in tears today over this news! - The result has exceeded my expectations by loads - we were all at a point that we thought there was nothing that could be done to help!
I think that they might want to ask you to come again at a later date as well (if you are willing).
Fear of Surgery/Anasthetic
Hi Neil, I just wanted to let you know that the surgey went really well and I felt clam and relaxed both before and after the operation.
I also had my blood pressure checked at a local clinic that I attend and both the nurse and I were shocked to discover that my blood pressure had dropped in to the normal range for the first time in nearly two decades.
Thany you so much Neil for all your help and the extra hypnosis relaxation recordings you gave me.
I strongly recommend Neil to anyone who has a fear or phobia.
