    After several months of stomach pains which doctors couldn't pinpoint a reason for, my son had become down and withdrawn. We took him to see Enfys and after a short number of sessions he got his sparkle back! We also had strategies to use going forward. Highly recommend this service.

    Thank you for the kind and positive review. It was an absolute pleasure to help your son and give him clinical wellbeing toolkits for life.

    Truly honoured to have met Gareth from Alchemy Hypnotherapy. I contacted him a year ago because my 8 year old was experiencing bed time anxiety. The sessions were really cool and interesting and tailored to make it easy for him to understand. my little boy loved learning about the brain and the results of the actual hypno sessions were amazing. My son came away with the resilience and confidence to manage his own anxieties. I too have had hypnotherapy with Gareth for general wellness and some specific things like fear of flying and pre job interview nerves. This therapy worked better than any anti anxiety pill prescribed by a doctor. I feel centred and focused. Gareth's knowledge and skills are exceptional. My son and I have returned for 'top up' sessions, not because we need it but because we actually love the way we feel afterwards. It's not a quick fix and takes work from the patient too as well as an open mind. But I definitely highly recommend and my son would 100% agree.

    Wow, thank you Amy! It was an honour to meet both of you and a privilege to work with you as we did! As you know, both Enfys and I are self-confessed Neuro Geeks! We are passionate about how the brain works and how we can help it work even better on our behalf! Not only that, we love to share this information as we believe that the knowledge we offer is empowering, further boosting the effectiveness of the sessions as a Solution Focused Toolkit for life. Say Hi from me!
