Flip had extensive pre hypno-birthing as she was planning a natural birth. However, she was suddenly rushed into hospital for an emergency caesarean (due to a rare but potentially fatal condition unbeknown to her) and had no pain control what so ever – in fact she was in total agony for a while. Fortunately she used the hypno skills she had previously been taught for pain management and gave birth to a healthy baby daughter.
Flip says “Despite what I went through I would certainly recommend self hypnosis to anyone considering either a natural child birth or a caesarian. I wouldn’t have missed the experience for the world and felt totally exhilarated!”
Actress Jo lost over four stone just through hypnotherapy. Originally 15 stone, over five months her weight went down to 11 stone and she is still loosing the pounds. She had tried every diet but just couldn’t shift the weight she had put on through over eating and having two children.
Jo says: “Working with Monica really helped transform my life and get my diet and weight back on track. It feels great to be in control of the food choices I make and I’ve never looked or felt better thanks to Monica.”
Finance manager, Louise started her shopping addiction after she became single following the break up of a long-term relationship. Stress and sometimes boredom were the main triggers for the addiction
which before long became a major dominating issue in her life. Last year alone she racked up debts of more than £10,000 and so far this year she has spent over £6,000.
After about four sessions with Monica, Louise learnt to shop consciously without guilt or unnecessary spending. She buys when she can afford it and when she deserves a treat – and not a credit card in sight! What’s more, hypnotherapy has taught her how to expel her stress.
Louise says, “Hypnotherapy is not a quick fix, it’s a lifestyle change. Hypnosis is a tool to help you achieve your goal and it certainly benefited me!”
PR consultant, Tavy smoked from the age of 17 until she was 32 with one break of a year and a half when she was 27.
The reasons for starting again relate to stress, the death of her Grandfather and a traumatic break-in at her house.
Tavy explains, “Two hours with Monica and I was reformed. I put the cigarettes down. I kept waiting for the urge to pick them up, especially with alcohol but this never came. I must admit I was surprised as I didn’t know much about hypnotherapy and didn’t know how it could possibly work to overcome what I believed to be a physical need. But it did! My main focus was to be a smoke free and fragrant bride and with my forthcoming wedding. I am thrilled.”
“I came to see Monica after over 15 years of suffering with severe atopic eczema. I had been pushed and pulled between various doctors and specialists who never really seemed to understand just how much of an impact having a systemic skin condition can have on your life. Coming to see Monica for alternative therapy was like a revelation. For the first time, I met someone who not only understood my physical condition (with the itching, the bleeding and the scarring) but also the emotional impact it can have. Monica gave me the chance to completely rethink my own perspective on my condition and gave me an array of breathing and hypnotherapy tools which I can use on a daily basis. Once I started to employ these lessons, I immediately felt calmer and more in control, and the itching slowly began to ease. I am confident that with continued use and practice and I can bring my condition under control. Monica herself is beyond lovely. Very kind, very patient, very easy to talk to and completely non-judgemental. I thoroughly enjoyed every conversation I had with her. I would highly recommend seeing her for an alternative way of controlling and calming any eczema-related skin condition.”
“Having suffered severe claustrophobia for over 12 years, I finally decided that I couldn’t let it continue to rule my life. I booked a session with Monica with some scepticism having tried hypnotherapy some years before where it hadn’t been successful. After two sessions I was able to get into a lift and now use them regularly. I still have some trepidation upon entering them and I don’t know how I would react if I were to get trapped in one for any length of time, but at least I don’t have to search out the staircase every time I enter a building and I do feel I have regained some control over my life. The sessions with Monica were hard work but also revitalising and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to anyone with a similar problem.”
“I have been trying to stop smoking for five years now. Each time I have always gone back to it and felt a certain inevitability about this. I have used nearly all conventional methods ranging from the various nicotine replacement therapies to Alan Carr’s books and even more hardcore pharmaceuticals i.e. Zyban. Since under going the one hour hypnotherapy from Monica, which incidentally I was sceptical about, I have found it easier to cope with the every day situations without nicotine. It has not made it easy but it has almost certainly helped. I would recommend this to anyone who actually wants to stop as this could be the difference between success and failure.”
“Dear Monica, When I met you my life changed for the better I often listen to your CD, so you are always with me and I thank you for that, you are a very special person to me. Thank you for teaching me to control the chronic pain that has dogged me for that last 10 years.”
“Monica is a great trainer. I learned so much about communication skills, more than any other course I’ve attended. Her knowledge and teaching skills are second to none. Her is course is delivered in a most professional manner and her sense of humour makes learning so easy. “
“I attended Monica’s One day Introduction to NLP & Hypnosis course and was enthralled by her professionalism and easy to understand content. I’m in the financial sector and this introductory course has enabled me to address and understand both personal and professional issues and how to go forward in this difficult climate with easy and peace of mind. Thank you Monica. “
“Having suffered with servere back pain for many years and having tried everything going with no success. I’d read about Monica and thought I’d give it a go but not expecting much. Oh how I was mistaken. Within I hour I was pain free for the first time. After 4 sessions with Monica I was able to control and manage my pain using the skills of self-hypnosis she taught me. I can’t thank her enough.”
“Monica’s NLP & Hypnosis course was a joy to attend. Thank you for giving me the knowledge and skills that have lead to a life change for me. “
“My experience with Monica has been profound and insightful. She has listened to me, shown compassion and helped me see things from a different angle. I found Monica to be very approachable when I needed to reach out. She made me feel more empowered and in control of my thought process. I am so grateful for her support and highly recommend her life coaching services!”
“Monica was a lovely and reassuring hypnotherapist. She helped me bring my stress levels down through breathing exercises and supported me through a difficult time in my life. Kind, knowledgeable and practical, I’d definitely recommend her services.”
“Hi Monica. I just wanted to drop you a quick line. Firstly thank you again for your kindness and support during our sessions and secondly, not only am I now presenting on a weekly basis without nerves I have now been offered a new job to go back to doing what I love.”
“I’m about to share something deeply personal, something that most people don’t know about me. I suffered a traumatic event that led to me have postpartum PTSD . Yes this is a real thing and its Postpartum depression on steroids . I would never wish this one anyone. It went undiagnosed and therefore untreated for too long dark years. I couldn’t sleep (I mean an hour or 2 at most). I lost weight, and really struggled to get through each day with a baby. When we moved to London In August 2012 I looked at it as a new beginning g and it really was. I found the wonderful therapist Monica Black who helped restore me back to being ME. I will forever be grateful to her for helping me.
“I attended the virtual gastric band workshop with Monica at the NLP coaching company in January 2020 just a few months after completing my practitioner level in life coaching, clinical Hypnotherapy and NLP and just prior to completing my mastery. The course is packed with nutritional information, lifestyle habits and extremely precise fine details of how to make this technique effective for potential clients. I can highly recommend it. What a great tool to have in the kit.
Monica is a fantastic teacher and her success stories from those who have been coached by her speak for themselves. I’m truly grateful to have had her as a teacher and ongoing mentor.”
