New client testimonial, November 2014

November 17, 2014 · by Sean Heneghan · Acupuncture, Cognitive Hypnotherapy

“I first started seeing Sean for acupuncture treatment in 2010 on the recommendation of a chiropractor who worked at the same clinic as Sean. I needed treatment to help alleviate some debilitating symptoms I was experiencing. As an ‘invisible’ illness it is almost impossible to find a practitioner who can fully understand the varying range and degree of symptoms and how to treat them. I immediately found Sean had a great understanding of the symptoms and his gentle listening approach made it easy for me to explain the severity of the symptoms I was experiencing and how they impacted on my life.

I was already familiar with acupuncture and I was sure it would help but I was totally amazed at the speed at which the symptoms disappeared – even after the first treatment. No more pacing myself in case energy levels plummeted, and the pain lowered to the level that allowed me to get a full night’s sleep.

However, during the course of the acupuncture treatments, various other life events occurred that that had a huge emotional impact on me – car accident, house move, bereavements to name a few! I was starting to feel unable to move forward with my life and generally felt overwhelmed with a huge sense of grief and sadness that would appear as tears and sobbing at any given moment. Not a great way to be when you are trying to work and maintain a professional head on your shoulders!

It was at this time that I began having Cognitive Hypnotherapy with Sean. Initially I was reluctant to try it, I had heard of hypnotherapy and wasn’t sure how it could possibly help. Sean explained to me how Cognitive Hypnotherapy works. When having this deeply relaxing form of therapy you are never asleep, in a trance or at any moment not in complete control and I decided to give it a try.

I am so glad I did – I cannot believe how much it has helped me. It was a revelation. During the sessions the grief and sadness that had been holding me back were gently resolved. However, this was just the start of a journey to full recovery. I didn’t realise how many other areas of my life it would help me with too. As a result I am now more aware of how I react to situations and how to manage those reactions. It has given me new life skills that enable me to live my life in a more positive, forward thinking way. A mind makeover would be a great way to describe it!

Sean is the consummate professional; showing kindness, compassion, and integrity throughout the therapy and I can honestly say, thanks to his expertise I have my life back now.”
