I’m a keen golfer and in 2011 was playing off 11. I considered driving from the tee one of the strongest and more reliable parts of my game. At the start of 2012 I developed what I believe was the golf driving yips. This occurred when I addressed the ball on the tee before driving. I could take a practice swing without any problem but as soon as I put the club behind the ball my left arm seized up and I could not start taking the club back in a smooth manner to start my back swing. I tried various different approaches - talking with a golf pro, researching the internet, without any real improvement. As a consequence my handicap rose virtually every week. From a situation where I never really worried about my driving I began to dread approaching each tee shot and the problem started to spread into other parts of my golf game.

Ultimately I decided that a completely different solution was required if I wanted to continue playing golf and enjoying the sport.

It was then I found Sam Luxford’s website and thought that this alternative treatment may be the answer. I went for an introductory session with Sam and was sufficiently convinced that hypnotherapy may be worth trying. I had 3 sessions over a period of 6 weeks – Sam’s professional approach and sympathetic understanding of my problem was very evident. Sam also gave me some good tools to take on to the course – specifically the 7/11 breathing technique and thumb/middle finger pressure points to relieve my stress levels and help me refocus on my golf swing. As a result I’m enjoying my golf again and the yips have disappeared.

I would have never considered hypnotherapy before but I consider the techniques and tools used by Sam to be wholly appropriate not only for my specific golfing yips problem but as an aid for a much more focused and confident approach to life in general.

I went on to win a tournament a few months later.

I had been suffering from depression, lack of confidence and low self esteem. I have been attending Sam since June, and since then she has managed to get me out of the black hole I was in for 8 months. She has given me my life back, and for this I am eternally grateful. My confidence has increased and I have now returned to work and coping very well. I continually still listen to my hypnotherapy on my Ipod daily, especially on my way to work. I will continue to see Sam as it is so beneficial to me. I can't thank Sam enough for all her kindness, support and patience.

I was suffering from Insomnia and anxiety and decided to try hypnotherapy. During my first treatment I went into a deep state of relaxation and worked on my breathing. Sam provided me with a CD to help me sleep and within 2 sessions my sleep certainly improved. During another session she prepared me for a difficult meeting and using a method about imagining the mind is a control room which you control such as tuning up confidence. I was sceptical at first but what a difference it made. I very seldom suffer from lack of sleep and if I do I start listening to the cd again. I would highly recommend Sam's hypnotherapy sessions before reaching for the sleeping pills.

After the success with my phobia I took my 9 year old son - he had never slept properly and would lie in bed at nights into the early hours. We had tried all the behavioural things recommended by the doctors and medicine that made him drowsy but nothing had any lasting effect. A few sessions with Sam and he was sleeping fine, he is less tired during the day and is doing much better at school.
I was nervous about visiting a hypnotherapist, I felt I should just be able to deal with things and shouldn’t need professional help, but Sam put me at ease really quickly. She was great with my son too, she was a real hit with him and he felt confident to go in by himself after only one visit plus he always came out of the sessions happy and chilled.

I went to see Sam about my fear of heights, I have had it all my life but it had been getting worse in recent years and I was becoming unable to do a lot of things I wanted to with my kids. Didn’t really believe it would work but after my sessions I went for a walk along the cliffs at Stonehaven, I hadn’t managed to get to the top of the steps at Dunnottar Castle the previous visit but this time I went right down the stairs, got to the castle, leaned out of windows and then walked further along the cliffs without any feelings of anxiety.

Sam really helped me make the right choices in my life and move forward positively. She also helped me with my weight problem and I feel like everything is going really well with my life. I'm glad that I found out about her when I did, she really was a big help
