Jane’s anxiety made her “terrible” at
interviews and she was struggling with Social Anxiety too.
Jessica’s life was shrinking due to her IBS related anxiety. Not any more!
Rachel was struggling to move on with her life after her divorce.
Today I finished a very thought provoking journey with Fiona Robinson aka The Anxiety Angel. I approached her some time ago anxious, tearful, lost, bitter and broken over my divorce. I felt insecure and had lost sight of myself and my worth. I must point out it was solely for my divorce and the way I’d been treated for many years before it by my ex- husband and father of my children. She gave me strategies to process the pain and hurt that I was harbouring inside me and the resentment that an individual could treat me that way. I didn’t want to live my life with the bitterness that I felt. Today I’ve been signed off to go and continue enjoying my life without that baggage coming forward me and I feel very proud that I took that initial step and contacted Fiona for help. A very very special kind and caring lady who offers non invasive help. Yes I’ve cried with her, she’s passed me tissues to wipe my tears, I’ve been angry at times and confused but she’s never judged me and just given me more coping strategies. My message to anybody struggling with anxiety, depression or stress in general…. call her you won’t regret it. Leave the past where it belongs very much in the past and live for the present /future – the past cannot be changed! ❣. Thank you Fiona for freeing me to
keep moving forward xx
For obvious reasons, Alison was desperate to get her diabetic teenage son to overcome his extreme fear of needles
My 13 year old son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes back in the autumn. This came as a complete shock and not only did he have to cope with the trauma of the diagnosis he also had to battle with an extreme fear of needles and was really struggling to cope with the 4 injections he needed each day.
He was completely unable to self-inject which meant that he was totally dependent on us to do his injections for him. This was starting to limit what he was able to do and a school trip abroad at the end of the year was causing him a lot of anxiety.
I contacted Fiona by email and explained the problem and almost immediately Fiona called me to discuss the situation and ways in which she would be able to help.
My son had two sessions with Fiona, the first dealing with some of the anxiety surrounding his diagnosis and the thought of having to self-inject and the second involving hypnotherapy to help him overcome his fear of needles.
On both occasions I joined him at the beginning of the session and Fiona explained to us what she would be doing and then at the end Fiona invited me back in to talk through how they had got on.
A few weeks after the second session my son was able to inject himself without any fear or hesitation.
Through the whole process Fiona has been extremely kind and reassuring which is very important for a parent seeking help for their child. She is very good at relating to teenagers and my son felt completely at ease with her.
I would highly recommend Fiona and cannot thank her enough for giving my son the freedom to get back out and enjoy life.
Jackie was, as she put it, “festering amongst a quagmire of worries” which was stopping her from enjoying life
“I had been feeling very low with some anxiety issues. It felt like I had the world’s problems on my shoulders. In reality I knew what I would advise someone else but could not take my own advice. Nothing very serious in these anxieties but I felt it had stopped me in my tracks and I was festering amongst a “quagmire” of worries.
Fiona and Anxiety Angel came up on Facebook and I knew instantly that I needed to act on it. I messaged Fiona and she very swiftly replied with a follow-up call later that day. I immediately felt a sense of relief starting this process. I had five sessions and from the first session to the last Fiona was extremely supportive, encouraging and helpful. Contact could be made with her at any time so I felt I had a safety net in place.
I particularly related to the visual tools Fiona used as examples of ways to eliminate the anxiety. I immediately felt happier after my initial consultation with her, I could not believe it! T
hroughout each week Fiona worked on my self-confidence too. As a result of strategies Fiona has given me I am able to dismiss any negative thoughts that creep into my mind. I am conscious of the fact I need to focus on something more positive or busy myself with something much more pleasant.
Having now f
inished my therapy, I am extremely grateful for the time and support and progress she has given me each week. Always responding with positive messages, w
hether written advice or audio files to aid sleeping, she is never too far away.
I would thoroughly recommend Fiona, she really is an Anxiety Angel, I would not have believed that in a few weeks that she could rid me of my issues that had built up over a few years. Fiona radiates warmth and confidence, encouragement and is extremely professional. Thank you Fiona.”
This lovely young mum, found learnt how to let go and relax more with life
Hi Fiona! I came to you because anxieties and control issues were affecting my daily life. There was a constant background noise in my head of a sense of impending doom. Having sessions with you developed my confidence and self-worth. I was able to challenge and manage the internal monologue of negativity. I have continued to use the hypnotherapy recordings you sent me as well as the many techniques you taught. Thank you, once again! I think you are brilliant as a person as well as a professional and would happily recommend you to my dearest. Dee Xx
Helen overcame her anxieties and controlled her Irritable Bowel Syndrome and managed to tour India!!
“I came to see Fiona because I was due to go on a touring holiday of India with my elderly mother and I was terrified that my nervous stomach would ruin it for me and my Irritable Bowel Syndrome would go into over-drive.
My anxiety had got so bad that I was seriously considering cancelling. Had it not been for letting my mother down I would have cancelled it at the drop of a hat.
I was also nervous about going out in on trips at home for fear of my stomach playing up, the amount of times trying to find toilets.
Fiona helped me to see that my anxieties were completely over the top and that the horrors I was imaging were very unlikely to occur.
I was able to go out on trips here in the UK and think far less about my stomach.
I saw all the sights in India ( other than the tigers who refused to appear) and my stomach didn’t give me any problems at all – even when I braved a very scary tuk tuk ride and a jeep ride through very bumpy terrain in the National Park !
It wasn’t my favourite holiday and I wouldn’t return to India, but I coped with it well, my stomach didn’t let me down and was there to support my mother.
Thank you Fiona for helping me to learn that I don’t have to be a martyr to my anxieties, or my stomach
Here’s a photo of me on top of the Taj Mahal – I did it!”
Alex smashes her fear of flying to enjoy a different kind of family holiday abroad for the first time in years…
” Well, I didn’t cry, which is fantastic!
I was very relaxed at the airport, listened to your very calming voice the night before and on the plane. I still don’t like the take-off!!! However I was so much calmer than I usually am, focussed on myself with a book, music and even a film on the way back. Didn’t panic when it was turning (kept on remembering your helpful comments about how it was a necessary) which helped a lot. Even the rattling in the air was OK.
I am so happy it was a better experience than before, my husband was super helpful and looked after the kids.
Thank you again – you have given me so much confidence. Your sessions (and your recordings) helped me be in a better place mentally during the flight 😊 xxx
I came to see Fiona and I really do believe that the coaching and hypnosis did the trick. I definitely needed both as they worked hand in glove.
IBS can be a stand alone problem, or be linked to other anxiety related issues. Here’s Louise’s story.
BEST THERAPIST EVER!!
I started seeing Fiona when I had server anxiety about my IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). After seeing Fiona just three times I felt a lot more confident about my condition.
I was constantly worrying about how others would react to my toilet habits. Worries such as, ‘will other people judge me for needing the toilet?’ Compulsive questions which Fiona made me realise were not of interest to anyone else and if they were, well, they were the weird ones.
I had seen many CBT therapists and had seen one hypnotherapist. All of which were nothing compared to Fiona.
She is honestly a very compassionate and caring woman. She has always said to me to call her if I need her, she wants to keep in contact with you after therapy and does not clock watch (which I have found with other therapists).
She gives you homework after your sessions, which, in my case, made me realise how my thoughts were just thoughts, not a reality.
Hypnotherapy is really relaxing. It is basically a deep meditation. Fiona tells you a story in which you are the main character. She showed me how I am capable of controlling my thoughts and interactions with people. A realisation which was such a relief and a game changer.
She tells you real life stories of other people’s experiences which are similar to your own, making you feel not alone.
You can honestly tell her anything and she will not judge you.
By seeing Fiona you learn so much about yourself.
I always recommend Fiona to family and friends and this is because she is amazing at her job.
