Below I have included just some of the feedback I’ve received from clients following their sessions with me. I always aim to treat clients in as few sessions as possible, with the intention of getting positive, lasting results. In doing so, my reputation is enhanced and as a result, I see many new clients through word of mouth and personal recommendation.

No names or details have been provided in order to protect the individual's anonymity.

ALCOHOL – I never thought I’d be in a position where I’m choosing when to drink. Sounds mad but going from almost a bottle a night to only drinking at social occasions is remarkable in my view. Still can’t quite believe it. So nice to wake with a clear head. Thanks again.

ANXIETY – Thank you so much for helping change my life xxx – Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I never thought I could do it and yet not only did you help me to see things differently, I have actually done it! – My issues were taking over my life but now I have my life back. I will be forever grateful. – Hello! As promised a little update of my travels, everything has been brilliant!! I haven’t got nervous about travelling and have been so relaxed about everything which has made this experience amazing!! I am home in a week and although I’m looking forward to it I could definitely go on to travel more, I don’t think this is the last of my travels!!Thanks for your help, I hope you are well! – The worry and anxiety has definitely dampened down a lot. I am far more aware and able to control my thoughts and the sick feeling in my stomach and stop it getting any worse than a flutter and moving on to the tightening of the chest and anxiety. I have noticed that my asthma has been a lot better the past couple of weeks and I wonder if there may be a connection.

BODY DYSMOPHIA – i’m not certain as to what was said or suggested but ‘something’ in me is changed; for the better; anyway i look forward to meeting you again soon.

BULIMIA – I can’t thank you enough for what you have helped me to achieve! – Once again, thank you so much for all you have done. Inspiring changes is just so apt !!

CLAUSTROPHOBIA – Hi Nicolette,Thought you might like to know, have been to London today, used the underground three times, no problems at all. All areas of my work, no problems at all, absolutely fantastic. Many thanks, you have made a huge difference to my life.

CONFIDENCE – Dear Nicolette, Since I started seeing you, as you know I have been promoted and I thought I’d let you know I am now in a very happy, stable relationship. Before I saw you I would never have even thought of applying for that job, but thanks to you, I did and it has been just the start of what has turned out to be a brilliant year. I’m sure you’ll say it was ‘me’ who made the changes, but without your help I’m convinced I wouldn’t be where I am today. I have been together with my girlfriend for 6 months now and life just seems to be getting better and better. I cannot recommend you highly enough. Thank you. – It was so wonderfully bizarre that during our last session you used the metaphor of sweeping away fallen leaves to let go of painful and negative feelings. I drove home after our session and the minute I turned into my road I was met by the gardeners clearing away all the fallen leaves…..I laughed out loud and felt really uplifted, talk about good timing! And the truly brilliant part of all of this is that the positive feeling has stayed with me, for the most part. Yesterday, [we] went to the garden party and I really enjoyed it, several months ago I would not have gone. I’ve lost two stone and am feeling a lot stronger and positive. We went to xxx which was so empowering….I flew on a plane! So please do excuse the waffling email all about moi but I have been wanting to share with you for some time that I am on the up and that I do thank you so very much for your part in getting my head straight and easing my crippling sense of anxiety and self doubt. We are due to move and I am actually looking forward to it! Wow! Thanks again Nicolette and I wish you all the very best x x

DENTAL PHOBIA – I just wanted to say thank you again for changing my life, you came to see me at home about my panic attacks and agoraphobia and then I came to see you at your home in Woodfalls a few years later about dental anxiety. I was in pain I found a Dentist that seemed to be able to handle me and I finally had the treatment I needed to have, plus he does IV sedation which helped a lot, but I had 7 teeth removed and 12 fillings and a partial denture fitted so finally I can almost confidently smile and laugh and talk without putting my hand over my mouth or having my hair hanging over my face trying to hide my wonky smile, so thank you so, so much for changing my life for the better, I am so grateful to you for giving me back my life, thank you again.

DRIVING ANXIETY – Just to let you know, when I left today I felt different, I don’t know how but something was different. I got in car, didn’t take wing mirror off in car park, got out of space quite easily, and went to roundabout was sat in traffic, was fine. On way back to my house I’d normally go back roads to avoid traffic and roundabouts, but today went main way, passing two round abouts and sitting In traffic , I felt fine, in fact I didn’t really think about it. Which is sooo good, it’s like the feeling I had after second session when panic attacks just went, something was different, I didn’t know what. Thank you so much.

EXAM ANXIETY – Good evening Nicolette, I had my exam this afternoon, I’m so happy I came to see you! I went into the room shook his hand and smiled and said “nice to meet you, my names xxx” to which he replied “what a lovely smile”. I feel really positive about it and just hope this reflects in my mark which I won’t find out until the end of Jan unfortunately! I just want to thank you so much for your support and the brilliant hypnotherapy session I had with you, I feel without this I would have been very negative and quite frankly a stressed nervous wreck, but thanks to you I was calm, collective and confident and smiles were all around. Thanks again, I will be back in the new year! Your a star! – I came to you first about a year ago to help me with exams and stress flash backs, and it has worked very well. I managed to remember all my equations in my exam, through out the exam, which I hadn’t been able to do before.

FEAR OF FLYING – Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for doing something I didn’t think was possible… helping me to enjoy a flight! I had the tiniest tummy flutter on take-off but that was it! The flight was great and I was even…bored! What a joy. Thanks to you, our holiday started brilliantly and we went on to have the best time. I would highly recommend Mexico – and I woud highly recommend you. You did an amazing job. Thank you. Now…do you have a cure for post-holiday blues…?!! All the best x – Thank you so much for helping me overcome my fear of flying. For the first time I have actually enjoyed the flying experience. especially when the plane turned and you could see the ground directly below.

FEAR OF NEEDLES – May I recommend Nicolette Pinkney to anyone who needs help with anxiety or any phobias. I was suffering an anxiety problem about having a course of 12 infusions into my bloodstream by means of a cannula inserted into a vein in one of my arms. I have always had a problem with needles but the cannula proved to be a hurdle especially so because at my first session the Nurse experienced difficulty finding a good vein, due mainly to my high state of anxiety and no fault on her part. This played on my mind and I could feel myself becoming more anxious every day as I started counting down the 30 days to my next infusion. After seven days it was time to seek help. In desperation I did something I had never even considered before – looked for a local Hypnotherapist. This was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It led to me phoning Nicolette Pinkney one evening and after quite a long conversation I was convinced that I had to see her. This lovely lady puts you at ease the moment you meet her. She radiates warmth and empathy. She is also highly skilled at working on the subconscious mind. I had two sessions with her and I learnt a lot about the way the subconscious mind works and how it can be reprogrammed. The techniques she recommends are based upon what will be best suited to you. Put your trust in her because she knows what she is doing. My total trust in her was rewarded at my second infusion. Using the techniques she taught me – I sat there calm and in control whilst the Nurse inserted the dreaded cannula. It was surreal – I was in control of myself. I could hardly believe it! Please don’t hesitate, contact this lady if you need help and you are prepared to commit yourself to overcoming your problem. I did – and it changed my life for the better.

FEAR OF SPIDERS – Yesterday I had hypnotherapy to help my phobia of spiders. This morning for the first time ever, I was able to move a spider from the bathroom and into the garden, with the help of a glass and coaster! There was no sweat, no fear, no “Paul, help!!” His name is Alfie and he’s ready for his next chapter, just like I am 💚🕷😁 Thank you Nicolette Pinkney at Inspiring Changes for changing my mindset, you are amazing! – Hi, after much sweating and heavy breathing, I held a chillian rose tarantula today ?? the proof is attached!!!! Thank you so much.

HYPNO GASTRIC BAND -Hi Nicolette! Happy New Year….here’s to 2015! Just wanted to update you on my progress……just had my first Christmas without obsessing over food and it felt fantastic! I can’t believe that just six months after first meeting you, my life is so different. I am now almost three stones lighter….despite the festive season, and enjoying every day. I am even happy to be photographed now, which is unheard of! I have had so many fantastic comments from people over how happy and good I look and I still make time to listen to your cds at least a couple of times a week. I have and would recommend you to anyone……and if I have any anxieties or issues in the future you will be my first port of call. It is not just my attitude about food and weight that has changed, but my attitude on life! Thank you so much Nicolette… saved me from myself! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I wish you a very happy and healthy 2015. Love and best wishes p.s. I hope you can see the pic….the new me, complete with chin and neck!! Please use my comments on your testimonials page…if you have room for any more wonderful comments! – Wow! 4 stone 2lbs lost through the Hypno Gastric Band. How chuffed am I?! I’m a new person and it’s given me a new lease of life. Thanks big time! – I thought I would update you on my first week following my hypno-gastric-band. Well, I have stuck to just having three small meals a day, not eating after 9pm with the exception of Monday’s as I don’t get back from Zumba followed by Zumba Toning until just before 9, then I shower before I eat. I’m not snacking between meals and drinking more water with sliced lemon in it. I lost just over 8Lb in my first week and am now just under 11 stone [My husband] brought me a new dress which I have hung up in my bedroom, and although I sometimes find it difficult to listen to the CD every day, I do do it. I have found my love for walking again, and go out walking even in the rain, when not going to Zumba or Marsala Bangrah YAHHHHHHH. I will keep you up to date with my progress, and Thank You Very Much For Giving Me My Life Back. – Hi Nicolette Just a quick message to let you know how I’m getting on. From our first meeting to today I have lost 4 stone. My meal sizes have got much smaller and I have bought smaller plates so the meals still look like a reasonable size. The evening nibbles have stopped completely. I am cycling 30-40 miles a week so the combination of all these things have helped me lose the 4 stone. Its 4months on since losing the 4 stone and the weight is still off. Thank you for your help in getting my weight down, I would never have done it without your hypno gastric band course. Kind regards.

INSOMNIA – I don’t what Nicolette did to me in just one session but I no longer suffer in the night going over all the bad stuff. Once or twice when I felt myself going I was able to channel my thoughts in another direction. As if by magic. – Thank you Nicolette for all your help with my sleep. Although there was nothing specific I was worried about, my mind would not switch off at night so I rarely got to sleep before 2am. Now, I am falling asleep soon after going to bed AND I sleep through until my alarm goes off. Unheard of! I feel so much better I can’t tell you.

NAIL BITING – Hi Nicolette, Just wanted to let you know that I have not bitten a single nail so far and they’re starting to grow! I’m ready to book in my first ever manicure (I’ll have them painted red!). I also wanted to let you know that I went to the wedding on Saturday and I felt very confident to keep my hands by my side without holding onto a drink or a bag! It felt so liberating! Thank you so much for helping me, I will highly recommend you to anyone with a similar problem. – Hope you’re well! Just wanted to show you the progress with my nails so far since our hypnotherapy session! Thanks so much for your help! It’s made such a difference to my confidence too which is what its all about really! Thank you.

PAIN – I am so grateful to you for the relief you have given me, that intense stabbing pain has gone and hasn’t come back. – The treatment you used is amazing. Having had severe back pain for over 6 years, to now only feel the odd twinge when I overdo things is brilliant. I feel a new person, so thank you so, so much.

PAST LIFE REGRESSION – Many thanks for my PLR, I thoroughly enjoyed it and have been thinking about ‘xxx’ such a lot. There are three St. xxx churches in xxx, one of which was identical to what I ‘saw’ during my regression! Thank you once again. – Wow, what a special experience! Still processing what I saw but makes sense to me in so many ways. So much ties in. Will be back for more.

REIKI – I have had reiki before many times and always found it to be highly beneficial. I personally have no particular physical symptoms but suffer mostly from stress and anxiety. Nicolette relaxes me and the surroundings are perfect in which to do so. During a reiki treatment with Nicolette, I feel the most wonderful warmth and experience very deep relaxation. It is the highlight of my month. After a treatment, I am rejuvenated, stress-free and ready to tackle anything that comes my way. That feeling lasts too. It is wonderful. Highly recommended.

SELF ESTEEM – I have had a number of hypnotherapy sessions with Nicolette focused on raising my self-esteem and found them to be extremely beneficial. Unlike other forms of the counselling I have tried, hypnotherapy focuses on issues whilst one is in a very relaxed state, as a result I have found this form of therapy to be far less traumatic and emotionally draining. In fact I have left the sessions in a very positive frame of mind. There have definitely been changes in my approach to life since having the sessions and I am doing things now which I think I would have struggled with twelve months ago. Whether this is completely due to the hypnotherapy its difficult to prove but I would definitely recommend Nicolette to others and intend to return for further sessions to continue the work that we have started.

SEXUAL ISSUES – Deciding to see a therapist for something so personal wasn’t easy, but I am so pleased I chose you. I was able to discuss everything openly and in detail and felt totally comfortable doing so. The problem has gone and it feels great. A big smile here! – Sex has become great again, just as it should be! – As you know, my recurring issue was getting me down and having been checked out by my doc, I knew it was purely psychological. My thoughts must have changed as the problem is no more. No idea what you did, but it was great.

SLEEP DISORDERS – I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for your help in ridding me of night terrors through hypnosis. After 30 years of waking up screaming up to 4 times a week I appear to be completely cured after just two sessions. I still have the odd bad dream, but am able to alter the outcome of the dream so that it is no longer upsetting. This seems positively miraculous given that work is very stressful at the moment and my husband is going to start his cancer treatment shortly. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone experiencing difficulties in their life. In fact, having told my beauty therapist about the hypnotherapy, she is going to pass your details on to another of her clients who has developed a phobia of driving. I also have a friend who is having issues around eating whom I think will benefit too. – I came to Nicolette for help with nightmares I’d been having several times a night for years. After just one session I’m pleased to say I haven’t had a bad nightmare since! I can finally get through the day without 10 cups of coffee, and a night without terrifying my partner and myself. Thank you so much. It’s been such a lifesaver.

STOP SMOKING – Eight months on and I can honestly say I wouldn’t ever want to smoke again! I don’t even think about it these days. The best thing I’ve ever done! – Thanks for making it so easy and ensuring I did it this time! – Thank you Nicolette, you certainly made me change my thinking. I have not thought about smoking since I left the session and that’s five months ago. I can’t tell you how pleased I am. – Although I’d seen a hypnotherapist before and stopped smoking for six weeks, what you did was very different and incredibly powerful. It must have been, as I can safely say I’ve stopped my 30 year old habit of 30 fags a day for good. Thank you just doesn’t seem enough!!! – YOU ARE A STAR 10 days no fags…wow………I am singing your praises everywhere!!!!!

WEIGHT LOSS – Inspiring Changes does exactly what the name suggests. I cannot recommend Nicolette Pinkney more highly. For me, her empathetic approach and capacity to listen made her extraordinary ability to inspire change, a living reality. I had suffered for many years with weight issues. Through a programme devised by Nicolette with weekly sessions, she began to re-programme my thinking and I am now moving forward, am in a much better head space and gradually losing weight. Enabling me to live a more fulfilling life in a calm and happy way. I am so grateful to have found Nicolette – she has truly changed my life and not only that given me the tools to maintain that way of living. – Since seeing you I have now lost over 2 stone and am still losing weight. It has given me back the confidence I used to have and I feel like I am back to being ‘me’ again. I can now happily do the things all my other friends do and feel good about it. Thank you for your help. – Having struggled with my weight for many years and tried all manner of diets and fads, finally I have cracked it! What I loved was the fact I wasn’t even thinking about food – no calorie counting, points or sins, just being able to eat what I want, when I want and to properly know when I am hungry. It felt easy and for that I thank you. -I hope you are well! I have been meaning to email you since my last session! The eating is going much better and I haven’t eaten a single piece of chocolate for nearly a month now! I’m going to do it for a few more weeks and then hope I won’t become addicted again! – So far though I am losing 2lbs a week And I started training last night for 5K – my husband and I did a run last night and have planned to train 3 times a week. So we are on the way! – Thank you so much for yesterday, I felt great after, ate half my supper (with no wine) and miraculously had dropped 2lbs when I got on the scales this morning!

WORKING WITH CHILDREN – [name] is doing well, she has settled in well and seems to manage her anxiety a lot better, we have eaten out a few times now and she has been much more relaxed. – Can we please cancel [name]’s next appointment, She feels confident enough to try and go forward by herself now. Personally I would like to thank you for all of your help. The massive change we have seen in [name] is immeasurable. Many thanks and best wishes. – Hello Nicolette. I thought I would just take a moment to let you know that [name] got on the plane and had really good flights. Thank you for your help.
