I just want to give you an update how it’s going for me so far.
After I left on a Monday my mind kept rebelling and I did have coke for lunch and dinner but on Tuesday and onwards I had no issues at all. Today it will be a week exactly and I have not had coke and neither have I had the urge.
Just a quick note to let you know how much I appreciate your consultation. It has been great help in my efforts to control my vices and get fit again. I would recommend you to anybody! Take care and thanks again,Gerry

Leigh you have the wonderful skill of getting to the heart of my goals and aims, and helping me achieve them. Your sessions have noticeably allowed me to help myself. Thank you so much.A 4/7/15
Leigh has helped me deal with anxiety and panic attacks. She is a very warm and friendly individual and I thoroughly enjoyed our sessions.
As long as you are prepared to help yourself and complete any tasks provided, I have no doubt Leigh can help you overcome any issues you may be facing.
Leigh has provided me with resources and CD’s so my treatment can continue after my sessions have finished, which is great!
Thank you for helping me.James
After suffering in silence with my anxiety and panic symptoms for many years, I decided it was time to seek help from someone who really understands the intricacies of these conditions. Leigh’s wealth of experience immediately became apparent and she put me at ease with her relaxing manner throughout the 6 session course. The tools and techniques that Leigh supplied me with have made a huge impact, I now have the confidence and mindfulness to begin moving forward with my life. I have already recommended Leigh to a close family member.Ben
The difference in my general health and wellbeing over the 6 session course has been noticed by friends and family. I am a much calmer, relaxed and confident person than I was at the start of the course. I am happier at home and at work. I look healthier and I feel great. I am also now in a position to help myself going forward should I lapse. Of course, I might just give Leigh a call because I have enjoyed our sessions and would recommend her services unreservedly to others.Mara
I feel like I am more in control of my thoughts and feelings. I have a much better understanding of my way of thinking and I am much calmer and happier as a result. Feeling positive about the future.Angela
Leigh has made a big difference not only to my daughter but to us as a family. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing help. I will definitely be telling all my friends and family. Thank you Leigh you are amazing.Elaine
I think anxiety is something you have to deal with throughout life, but these sessions have really helped change my way of thinking and helped me cope. I feel a change within myself and I will continue to use the tools and steps I have learnt. Thank you so much.Olivia
Thank you so much or all your help. You have helped me overcome my irrational fear. Before, I couldn’t go in public without being ‘desperate’ to go to the toilet and was petrified to go to the cinema. Now I can go anywhere without a single worry. You have changed my way of thinking and I cannot thank you enough. Worth every single penny!Jordan
I came to Leigh for treating my anxiety. I found Leigh’s Hypnotherapy extremely effective with treating my condition. By the second session I noticed a marked difference and I think the CD she gave that accompanied the session was excellent. Leigh is understanding and the session is very relaxed. I recommend her services without hesitation.David
I went to see Leigh about health anxiety and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made.
My health anxiety affected my every day life, but since seeing Leigh and listening to the CD’s that she gave me, I have a completely new outlook and no longer worry.
Thank you so much for all your help.Steve
Involuntary Muscle Spasm
I had an appointment with you on Friday 20 May for help with my dystonia.
I listen to your tape every night and it really does seem to have helped.
The neck still pulls to the right hand side a little but listening to your tape does relax things and it is much more bearable. I can sleep a lot better. And the best thing is that when I do wake up I can lie still with my neck relaxed and it feels lovely.
So thank you for your help.Julie
Since starting hypnotherapy with Leigh I have completely lost my desire for sweet things and the “need” for bread”.A.B. Jones
Leigh has given me a variety of techniques that I have been able to practice myself, and that have enabled me to start living the kind of life I thought had been lost forever.
I wake up every morning with an optimism for the future and confidence that I am getting better every day. These are not small things, they are life-changing. I am calm, settled, relaxed and feel able to face new challenges. These gifts are precious – thank you, Leigh!Angela
After realising that I had fallen into depression again and promising my wife I would get some help, I turned to Leigh for help. After an initial consultation I found her understanding, kind and knowledgeable about my illness. I decided to invest in a six session course. Well I can tell you now is that it has changed my life and who I am today is nothing like who I was when I first started. I am out and about, I am enjoying life, I am feeling free. The course was a mixture of CBT and Hypnotherapy which really worked for me. I loved that the Hypnotherapy was recorded on to CD’s so I could listen to them again in my own time to reinforce the message. I have seen a CBT practitioner before and Leigh’s skill and prices are just great. So if you are suffering from Depression or any some other issues try her out, you won’t regret it.Antony
Fears and Phobias
I have found my sessions life changing. Leigh has helped me to realise that my phobia of being a passenger could be overcome. I have tried counselling in the past with limited success, but Leigh has shown me that with the right support I could overcome the obstacles holding me back.
Thank you so much Leigh. I would recommend you to others.Adele
Just to let you know I have been to the dentist today after a very long wait,
I got a little jittery so I popped my headphones in and listened to the CD you gave me, then I was fine, nothing wrong with the teeth did not even need treatment after all that, just a deep clean.
Thank you so much for your help I will continue to listen every time I go.
Thank you thank you thank you.Tsai
I hope you are well.
Your recorded sessions were an absolute god send. I was still scared but I was a lot calmer and used the recorded sessions on take-off and at times of turbulence.
I even managed to enjoy some parts of the flight and the landing into Spain despite a plane full of children screaming!
The flight back was bumpy throughout with thick cloud on landing but I practiced the deep breathing and was fine, my husband was amazed that I wasn’t climbing up the walls.
I definitely feel that from now on I will be a calmer flyer and will
enjoy the whole process a lot more.
I am so glad that I came to see you and that I didn’t put it off any longer.
Thank you very much and if there is ever anything else I need help with I will give you a call.Gemma
I came with an open mind with an extreme fear of Flying (11 out of 10 in terms of ranking how frightened I was). In the space of four sessions I have managed to accept and loose the fear; now I am comfortable and looking forward to holidays. A great Help.
A follow up following his return home:
Just landed back in the UK the flights went brilliant, no fear and in control so all good.Kyle
Went to Leigh for my fear of flying which was getting worse as I get older and with having a 21 month year old son I thought it was time to deal with the problem head on so it doesn’t get passed onto him. I found Leigh via her website and am so pleased I did as after 4 sessions I managed flights to the Caribbean recently with no drugs from the doctor, no alcohol and having no panic attacks. Hooray!
Thanks so much Leigh-I think you’ve changed my life.Lindsay
I went to see Leigh, as I’d had a very bad experience whilst landing in an aeroplane. I was terrified of flying again. I had several therapy sessions and when I went on my next plane trip I was amazingly calm and controlled as I was before the bad experience and enjoyed the flight. I am looking forward to my next flight, not dreading it. I would recommend anyone who has a fear of flying or any other phobia to try Leigh’s services.Annie
I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you so much for all your help over the last few months.
The flight to NYC and back again was a HUGE success and I am so proud at how well I did. There was a lot of turbulence on the way home, but I didn’t have one panic attack, there was no motion sickness and I didn’t even cry.
I stayed calm throughout the whole flight, did my breathing and kept my palms up. I even gave myself a smile in the mirror when I went to the toilet to show myself how well I thought I was doing.Tiffany

Since I came to see Leigh last October I have shed 3 stone and 3 lbs., and lost 6 inches from each of my bust, waist and hips. My blood pressure which was so high I had to take tablets is now almost normal and I have been advised that I may be able to reduce the tablets in the next couple of months and eventually cease having to take them completely if it continues to be at this level.
I have so much more energy now and can get up and down the stairs more easily, as well as play with my grandchildren without getting so tired.
The main advantage to this programme is that I have now changed my eating habits and I am convinced that I will keep off the weight for life.Alison
Since seeing Leigh my life has changed….I’m enjoying it! I’m eating what I need, not what I want; sleeping all night; exercising more. I know now that losing weight was part of what I needed to do. I’m now forward thinking and looking forward to what the future brings.
Thank you LeighJanet
After trying most commercial diets and failing – I decided to give hypnosis a try. I was eating up to 6 packets of crisps a day. From my first session with Leigh I have not touched a single packet. Leigh has helped re-educate my eating habits. I no longer pick between meals on unhealthy fatty food.Sue
My journey up to now has included various diets, thought plans and a lot of DON’TS. Doing hypnotherapy has enabled me to look through all the information and thoughts I have stored up and choose what is good and helpful for me. It has enabled me to have control over my thoughts that include my feelings and it has created a ripple effect into the rest of my life. I have a plan and now feel able to stick to it for my own wellbeing.
This has been a very positive experience and I would encourage others to look after themselves by doing hypnotherapy.Irmela
I came to Leigh at 11.7 stone and at the end of my tether. I was unable to lose weight and my self-esteem was at an all-time low. A few weeks later I am now one stone lighter and my confidence is just so much better. She not only helped me lose weight, but other issues are now far more in control and my life feels like it’s finally getting back on track; as does my body. I cannot give enough praise to her and thanks for the positive things I have achieved since coming to her. Thank you Leigh you are a real life saver.Lesley
I came to see Leigh after years of trying the usual diets and after having put on 6 stone over the last 6 years! For me, I couldn’t control my cravings and used food as a reward if I was feeling down; upset or happy.
Over the last few weeks, I no longer have any cravings and recognise that food never solved any of my problems! I eat half of what I used to and have already dropped a dress size. I know that I can continue and keep going for the rest of my life. The support Leigh provides is excellent and this really is the start of my new life!Stacie
I fell into the same cycle of diets with little real success. My initial thought on hypnosis was it was just another “thing to try”. To my surprise I have lost some real weight and unlike before, feel more confident to make this work.
The sessions have boosted my own will power to avoid sweets, fatty food and take-aways. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.Georgina
Panic Attacks/Panic Disorders
Leigh has really helped my son with his panic and anxiety; the change in him and how he feels is absolutely brilliant. We are both really glad we chose to see her. The future is now looking a lot brighter.Sonja
My sessions with Leigh have helped me become a more assertive, calmer and positive person. I am so glad I came here. She is incredibly understanding. The techniques I have learnt in order to face my fear have been very helpful. Thank you.Grishni
Very helpful, very relaxing. The course that I have been on has helped me tremendously, I would recommend it to anyone.
I was just sad it came to an end.Louise
After six sessions I feel much more able to face situations that I would have previously avoided. It’s getting over the first high hurdle that’s difficult, but now I am on the right path to do more. I am looking forward to a future of many possibilities.
Thanks so muchAnna
When I contacted you I was at the end of my tether – my 14 year old son was struggling with crippling anxiety. 6 weeks on he is a changed person. He has relaxed, opened up and I feel like I have my son back!
You have helped us through a very difficult time and given us many tools to work with. We are now well equipped for the future!Tasha
Just to let you know the poem went brilliantly. I did not shake or go red and managed to read the poem slowly with emphasis on the “you”. It was strange but I was not nervous like I normally would be and actually enjoyed reading the poem. i think it helped that I was able to relate to the poem and I somehow managed to smile and put some humour into it. People were laughing as I was reading the poem so I must have done well.
After the ceremony quite a few people came up to me to say how lovely the reading was and someone even said I got the facial expressions perfect for the humour of the poem!
Thank you for all your help. I am going to try and remember the confidence I had reading the poem for future presentations at work. If I can read in front of 120 people at the wedding I am sure I can get more confident for my work presentations too!
From our first meeting Leigh made me feel comfortable and assured. It’s been a great experience working with her and I’ve made great steps forward in conquering my difficulties with focus and procrastination.
Leigh helped me understand the causes of my ‘faffing around’ (as I called it!) and has given me the tools I can use to improve. I often felt overwhelmed trying to juggle my children, work and running a home. The hypnotherapy helped calm my thoughts and emotions, enabling me to concentrate on the tools I can use to focus on getting things done and ultimately relieving stress.
With very little time to spare I don’t have the luxury of lack-of-focus and procrastination. I’ve learnt, with Leigh’s help, that in order to tackle the reasons I keep burying my head in the sand, I actually need to start ‘doing’ and this will help break the cycle.
It’s a work in progress – but I feel with the tools, tips and CD’s she has provided I can make real progress, now and in the future, towards being the person I’d like to be.Philippa
I have just finished a course of CBT and hypnosis with a client whose life was a misery as she just couldn’t seem to get things done, which were for her ultimate benefit.
This is what Lynne said “I have found this course most helpful. It has made me think differently about the way I do things and the way I manage tasks in my life.Procrastination Patient
Low Self Esteem/Self Confidence
I am delighted with the help that Leigh has given me. I came to her when I was at a very low point and in honesty I had fairly low expectations. With Leigh’s help I feel that I have made fantastic progress and I am mentally in such a better place that my old self is almost unrecognisable. It can be difficult to make the decision to ask for help, but I can wholeheartedly recommend Leigh. She has great empathy, zeros in very quickly on the areas which will give you the most benefit and provides excellent tools and help to get you moving quickly. If you have recognised in yourself that you need some help, I would strongly recommend you seeking it from Leigh – you won’t be sorry!Doug
It has taken me a while to compose the words to express the way you have changed me but I hope it is of use to yourself.
Coming up to my 40th birthday, I got to the point where I felt worthless, a failure, ugly, hating everything about myself and tried to take my own life. Why??
After a childhood of not fitting in and not being part of the “in-crowd”, growing up wearing glasses, growing into an adult without the confidence to talk to the opposite sex, having a marriage fail after my wife cheated on me, losing the best job, losing both of my parents, losing the love of my life due to her lack of sex drive and left with nowhere to live. Always worried about the way people see me, what they thought of me.
This only touches on what I’ve been through up to before I met Leigh. I got to the point where I had nowhere to go, nobody to trust, nobody to talk to, nobody to reassure me. I had no self-esteem. The only shining light was my new job and my two, teenage, daughters.
I spent a short time, one evening, investigating different types of therapy when I stumbled across Leigh and her own business, I liked the look of her site as it was not commercial, it was clearly a personal message to anyone that visits. It took me a few days just to pluck up the courage to email her, scared she would think I was stupid over-reacting or there was no hope for me.
My first session of 6 was booked and I went along without any idea of what was going to happen, listening to colleagues telling me that I would be hypnotised into thinking I was a chicken with the use of a random word??? Its amazing what you can listen to sometimes. But instead I spent the next 30 minutes talking to a lady that seemed interested to hear what I was saying and thinking, followed by a hypnosis session which felt like hours, drifting in comfort. I could hear everything Leigh was saying but she was not saying anything, she was suggesting, making my mind see things in different ways, positively. The session was copied onto a disc for me to keep, which I converted into MP3 format and listened to most evenings.
To most people, it may sound ridiculous but that first session changed me so much that everybody noticed it within hours. I had confidence, not arrogance, for the first time ever and I walked tall without looking to the floor. I was happy with mefor the first time ever.
Over the next 6 months I had 5 further sessions which were structured the same way but each one emphasised a different part of the way I perceived myself. Made me see the world in a different light, the world is not out to get me, I was worth something!
The last session (2/2/2016) was different, I was confident about my mindset and the future already so Leigh agreed to fix my worst bad habit. I have bitten my nails since I first got two opposing teeth, I’d tried everything but nothing worked. The session was very similar in layout to the other sessions and Leigh gave me a nail file and vaseline, with instructions of when/how to use them. That was followed by another hypnosis session, which again I could hear everything that was being suggested.
That session was my last but I walked away a completely different man. I now have confidence, I’m happy, I’m in a loving relationship, I have an amazing career and have been promoted since therapy and I haven’t gone near my nails!!!
Whilst being hypnotised you are completely aware of your surroundings, it is nothing like what you see on the TV. You can fall asleep and sometimes hear everything but you are so relaxed. I felt like I didn’t have a care in the world, I knew I could open my eyes and sit up but my mind was calmly telling me to just lay there the two sides of my brain were have a conversation over whether I should open them or not. As soon as Leigh told me to, my eyes just opened, completely surreal.
I cant honestly explain how hypnotherapy works but you would understand if you knew me before and after.
I have been asked by my friends…. Does it work, hypnosis, does it work?
My answer…. Have I changed? Am I the same person from last year? No, I’m happy…..My life has just started, I look forward not back.
It will be my 40th on the 24th February, I honestly would not have seen it without Leigh Adley and Set Your Mind Free!!!!
Thank you again for everything you have done, you’re one amazing person.
It’s helped me to focus on my positives and release the emotional dead-weight of feeling stressed and overwhelmed and lacking.Olivia
I previously let low self-esteem affect my performance in exams and how I felt about myself and how I act.
I now know not to be so hard on myself and not to let my past define me. To learn from mistakes and appreciate all the positives and to treat myself better than I was.Courtney
Just a line to let you know that things are going very well in my new job. Thank you for helping me to improve my confidence and overcome the fears that were stopping me for going for another job.
I hope you are well. I will probably be visiting you soon for Smoking Cessation.
I have found the course very helpful and Leigh made me look at things differently and has helped me to feel much more positive about things. She has helped me to build my self esteem, motivation and outlook.Helen
Leigh has made a life changing impact to my life; through her guidance and useful techniques I have made many positive changes to my life.Nicky
I couldn’t put a price on the value of doing this programme. I feel completely re-invigorated. I like the best version of myself – it has allowed me to allow myself to be happy again. Identifying key problems, behaviours and beliefs in my life have provided me with a clear path forward towards a happy, healthy and balanced life.Charlotte
Leigh made me feel very welcome and relaxed, she helped me overcome my fears about hypnotism and I felt extremely comfortable in trusting her expertise. I have spent years working on self- development and although I have made great progress still suffered from some buried deep negative beliefs. After just 2 sessions I feel like a key has been turned in my mind, greatly improving my self-esteem and confidence and helping to unlock my full potential. I am now able to calm my panicky thoughts right down and feel confident on a consistent basis. What a marvellous feeling, thank you Leigh you have changed my life!Jo
Insomnia and Peaceful Sleep
My insomnia has improved 100% and my raised glucose levels (due to diabetes) is now constant. I have also dropped some inches. ThanksAndrew
Smoking Cessation, Stop Smoking, Quit Smoking
Have been a non smoker for one month now. Can’t believe how easy its been. Considering Mk half marathon on 2 May next year. Thanks for your help.John
With your help I have been a non-smoker for a few months now. I’ll be honest – I didn’t expect it to work for me. I wasn’t sure you’d be able to hypnotise me. But, here I am months later – not smoking. It still took a lot of will-power, but it removed the anxiety – which was a problem for me. And my wife reports I was much less irritable than when I’ve tried in the past. So, thank you. I do feel confident that I can say ‘never again’ and mean it!
Looking forward to the future with my kids,M. Moore
We are both feeling great, not smoking and getting hardly any cravings. We feel like we have got a new lease of life, clean and healthy, thank you.Catherine and Oliver
Leigh’s hypnotherapy has played such a key part in helping me to regain my focus and control in my weight loss goals. I am now fully engaged in my exercise programme and forming healthy eating habits that are already showing results. I have also previously been to Leigh for help to stop smoking and with great success. I highly recommend Leigh’s hypnotherapy sessions. Thank you Leigh.Kerryn
I hope you are well, just thought I would let you know that I have not had a cigarette and I am not using patches! Hooray!!
I do still have the odd craving but it is manageable.Nikki
Not sure if I missed a call from you recently but I was calling you to let you know I had actually stopped smoking! I am now on day 30!Lindsay
I just wanted to let you know that I haven’t smoked at all since I came to see you on January 4th! I feel so much better and I haven’t missed it at all. Many thanks.Anonymous
I came to see Leigh for quitting smoking on the 5th February this year. I became a non-smoker the minute I left her therapy room and I am pleased to report that 7 months later I have still not touched a cigarette and that is in spite of other people around me continuing to smoke. I know that I am a non-smoker now for life and that I will live to see my Grandchildren grow up. Thank you Leigh you have prolonged my life.Gary
After smoking for over fifteen years and trying various methods to stop smoking, I can honestly say that hypnotherapy with Leigh was by far the most successful method I’ve tried, and in fact I have not smoked a cigarette since my final session almost 3 months ago, and I am extremely happy with the results and how I feel.Jonny
It is almost 6 weeks now since I had a cigarette following my visit to Set Your Mind Free Hypnotherapy. After chatting with Leigh and her asking me some probing questions about my reasons for quitting, I had a light bulb moment when I recognised my main reason for stopping was to see my Grandson grow up. It’s not been a “walk in the park” – changing habits never is, but I have now saved over £200 which I am investing in Premium Bonds so I can see the money mounting up and have a chance of a big win.
Thank you again, I do feel much better for giving up and have a pot of money growing by the day. :o)Wendy
I stopped smoking in two sessions with Leigh and now I am a very proud non-smoker. I was so pleased with the ease at which I was able to stop that I have now booked further therapy for other lifestyle issues with Leigh.
I am a big believer in hypnotherapy and am living proof that it works!Ruth
Weight Loss, Lose Weight, Weight Reduction, Slim, Obesity
My experience with Leigh has been excellent. I have tried to lose weight many times with varying amounts of success – the difference this time is that I am not hungry all of the time and waiting to go off-the-rails. Leigh was very clear that we were focussing on health and not weight and this has been a great way. I have lost over a stone and it is still coming off. My husband commented that he had noticed that I didn’t appear obsessed with dieting, which has also helped to make this an enjoyable experience. Lastly, Leigh has been great, always warm and welcoming and I have looked forward to my sessions.Sophia
Spending time with Leigh really has changed my outlook on life. I’ve lost weight, feel more positive and feel now that I have the tools I need to achieve what I want.Bonny
When I went and met with Leigh I felt very confused about myself, my weight and where I was going. Leigh helped me to clear my mind, re-focus my thoughts and look at eating and how I am with food differently. I am now 16 lbs. lighter and feel a lot stronger in myself and my mind.Lilian
I liked this programme because it has changed my life. I have control over my life an feel so much happier and healthier. I enjoy the healthy foods that I eat now and do many different exercises. I have got so much more energy now.Geeta
I and my daughter started this lifetime change with Leigh, with small expectations, but in desperation, as nothing seemed to work and the weight was piling on. Straight away, her combination of straight talking and hypnosis took hold and we found the weight dropping off. I would recommend wholeheartedly, Leigh and this form of weight loss. It certainly worked for us.Fran
I have found this new lifestyle choice has really worked for me. I feel great. I have my confidence back and this has literally changed my life tenfold.Tania
My constant craving for chocolate is greatly reduced – when I am tempted I now know how to deal with those cravings without giving into them. My sweet tooth is disappearing – I no longer think I must have dessert after each meal. If I feel I need as snack I eat something protein based to keep me fuller for longer.
The weight has started to come off and I feel great about myself. Thank youSue
Leigh has helped me in ways I thought no one ever could. I came to finally sort out my anxieties and weifht issues and came away with so much more. My confidence has soared and my outlook and atitude to life has vastly improved. I’ve still got a journey ahead of me, but this time I will reach the end. I will change my life!Rebecca
