“helped me let go of a deep sense of being unlovable and repulsive as a person”
Firstly, I want to say that I’m definitely the worst client. A complete nightmare. I’ve been into personal development for many years, seen a number of therapists, and – to top it off – am a trained and working therapist myself. No-one is a worse client than a therapist. Because they already know what the problem is, how to fix it, and why your ideas for helping them aren’t good enough.
Brooke is one of the few people who managed to gain my trust and worked in such a way that I let him help me in the way I needed.
I needed help, but I’ve often struggled accepting it. And having it forced on me makes me dig my heels in. Brooke knew when to give me space, when to take the reins, and when to be somewhere in the middle with the right questions and nudges.
Brooke helped me let go of a deep sense of being unlovable and repulsive as a person. As well as a sense of powerlessness and lack of belief in my capabilities. I no longer have the fear of failure I once had. And I like myself so much more. Friends and family have commented how much more confident and relaxed I am. And I’m getting on so much easier with the things I’ve always battled with and procrastinated over. I no longer fear being plunged into depression either.
I’d highly recommend working with Brooke. He is knowledgeable, skilled, warm, understanding, and isn’t afraid to tell you what you need to hear. Yet because of the trust and connection we had, I felt safe when he did. And I laughed during every session. Not something I’ve been able to do with every therapist I’ve seen.
“If your life feels like you are in a runaway train”
…talk to Brooke. Mine did and thanks to Brooke that has changed, I have changed and the life I create for myself is changing. There is no couch or swinging pocket watch but words, questions and images. Brooke is helping me to clarify what I want and is giving me the self belief to grow. I don’t know how it works but it does. Next time I see Brooke it won’t be a runaway train that takes me there but curiosity about my own potential.
“Will enrich my life for years to come”
I approached Hypnotherapy desperately wanting it lead to real change that I hadn’t been able to bring about myself in years of trying but I was not by any means sure that it would work. In fact I had little idea what to expect at all. The idea felt quite invasive and uncomfortably vulnerable. The reality was not much more than a guided conversation that brought fast and effective change into my life even from the first consultation. I can honestly say that the changes these few sessions have brought will enrich my life for years to come. Thank you Brooke.
“A powerful connection and breakthrough”
I had no idea what I wanted when I went to see Brooke. I just wanted the emptiness to go away. It didn’t take long for him to tease out the real issue, the one I’ve been in denial about for years. Subconscious denial that is. His approach was energetic and challenging, challenging because he helped me see what I didn’t want to see – and the speed was frightening. But it worked in a way previous therapy had left me feeling ‘so what-ish’. The power of Brooke is his ability to connect, to work with his clients, not just the tools he has. It feels like a powerful breakthrough and where I go with it now is up to me. That’s the truly exciting bit.
“I now see real positive change”
“I’ve had a disabling anxiety at work that involved feeling judged whenever observed by colleagues. Approaching Brooke for help was a big step but I needn’t have worried. In a single session, Brooke nailed my difficulty and on three subsequent occasions at work, I now see real positive change. I’m in disbelief and joy at the same time. Thank you Brooke for all you do!”
“I feel confident for the future”
“I could never have imagined what positive transformation was possible in such a short time!”
“I didn’t know what to expect when I started working with Brooke. Having tried so many other approaches to therapy I was a little sceptical but hopeful. I could never have imagined what positive transformation was possible in such a short time!
Brooke is not your average therapist, he truly cares and every interaction shows that. He made me feel so comfortable and while he challenged me I always felt like I was in control of the pace and the program. He is so authentic in everything he does that I knew I could trust him fully, I never felt embarrassed or misunderstood.
Working with Brooke has changed my life on so many levels that it is hard to imagine how life was before working with him. For the first time in years I feel strong and self-accepting. Thank you Brooke and I look forward to staying in touch.”
“A voice in the storm equipping you with the methods to take on obstacles in a positive and self-affirming manner”
“This was my first experience of cognitive hypnotherapy and it’s been very positive. What I thought was an intractable and unsolvable issue has become manageable and far less present in my day-to-day life.
It was a remarkable experience for me. I feel empowered and anchored after a few sessions. It’s remarkable what lurks just below the surface and Brooke pierced the film in a straightforward and manageable way that engendered trust in the process and therefore resulted in measurable and real gains
I got the tools I needed to deal with the issues I was facing. The issues are still there but I’m managing them on a day-to-day basis at a level that makes me regret not doing this years ago. Brooke simplified what I couldn’t quantify on my own – he took my fraught emotional and mental state and put it back in the box I let it out of in the first place. A voice in the storm equipping you with the methods to take on obstacles in a positive and self-affirming manner. I’m struggling for negatives.”
“He’s helped me to realise that I’m a good person and that it’s more than ok to be myself”
“It’s been a very interesting journey. Brooke listens carefully and doesn’t jump in when I’m talking. I know he cares and has been thinking about how to help me. When we meet its obvious that he has connected to my issues and I’m not just another punter. He constantly gives me praise and encouragement. He has checked up to see how I’m doing because he genuinely wants me to reach my goals.
He has given me confidence and hope. He’s helped me to realise that I’m a good person and that it’s more than ok to be myself.
He is always positive and genuinely believes in and is excited about the tools he uses. His enthusiasm is infectious.”
“I am now free of those un-useful, unwanted thoughts”
“You know when you’re in a stuck place & something is consuming all your thoughts… That is where I was when I contacted Brooke. He seemed to know exactly what to say from the first call.
I am now free of those un-useful, unwanted thoughts that were taking up so much of my head space, replacing them with positivity and thoughts of a sparkling future!
With that space free I am putting a business plan into action that I have wanted to do for years. Fear of failure and the unknown were holding me back ….Brooke has not only freed up my head, he is encouraging me to follow my dream.
Whatever your issues, trust him and watch the magic happen.”
“One of the very best decisions I’ve made this year”
“The impact of the course completed with Brooke cannot be underestimated. As someone who had never considered therapy, I have to admit I went in to my first session with some trepidation. It transpired to be one of the very best decisions I’ve made this year – I can wholeheartedly say that I am, today, in much better shape in my approach to life and the challenges it can pose than I have ever been. It is with absolute pleasure that I highly recommend Brooke – the professionalism, proactivity and dynamism with which he conducts the course made working with him both incredibly easy and hugely successful. Thank you.”
“The sessions were transformative.”
“Working with Brooke was very powerful. He has a broad skill set yet used it in such a deeply empathetic way that I could relax and from there I found a unique understanding of what was troubling me. Once we had that information he helped me to clear it quickly. The sessions were transformative.”
“His techniques work.”
“I would recommend Brooke to anyone looking for change in their life. His ability to combine humour with sincerity makes sessions with him enjoyable as well as effective, I felt really comfortable talking to him and most importantly his techniques work.”
