Jim Aberdein was very understanding of my anxieties and quickly helped me get back to normal. I was beginning to find it hard to think clearly, and getting anxious about silly things I wouldn't normally - I recognised the signs of stress. Having experienced the healing powers of hypnotherapy in the past I didn't hang around to wait for it to get worse and made an appointment with Jim. Jim listened to all my various issues and was able to help sort through them and show me ways to calm down. Over the course of three weeks (three appointments), I was feeling so much better, back in control.. and relaxed. Thank you Jim.
