What people are saying about my clinical hypnosis treatment in Bolton

Fear Of Needles & Injections

"Having developed a fear of injections when I was 12 years old it had got progressively worse over the years to the point where I was having panic attacks and blacking out in the doctor's surgery. Last year, at the age of 22, I was going abroad which involved numerous injections and I decided to try hypnotherapy to help control the anxiety I was feeling about it. Nigel was recommended to me by a mutual friend and I went along a little dubious but open minded. After just two sessions my phobia has been completely cured. I am now able to go for an injection on my own (something I was never able to do before as I needed support in the surgery and was too dizzy and upset to drive home afterwards). I can happily say that I am completely calm during the whole process and find it hard to understand what it was that I originally got so paranoid about. I would recommend Nigel to anybody seeking to overcome a fear or bad habit as it really has changed my life for the better and I am very grateful for his help and support."

"Whilst in the midst of a breakdown Nigel was recommended to me by a friend. Nigel helped me through my difficulties step by step and recommended helpful techniques to me which I still find useful to this day. I found Nigel to be a very approachable, non-judgemental and empathic person and found the treatment I received to be very beneficial. I would highly recommend Nigel to anybody who seeks the services of a professional hypnotherapist”

Smoking Cessation

"Having enjoyed smoking for the past 50 years and trying everything to stop I thought I would try hypnotherapy which I had been told about by a nurse. I contacted Mr Nigel Spears at his clinic and was told it may take 4 sessions to become a non-smoker. After 3 sessions I no longer smoked but Nigel still gave me my 4 sessions which I must say I found to be rewarding. I would recommend Nigel and his therapy to anyone who wishes to give up smoking"



Mrs J from Heywood (Ref HIO)

Relationship Difficulties

“After having various personal problems and whilst going through an extremely difficult period in my life, I contacted Nigel hoping he could help me.  It was clear from the first phone call that he was most likely the person to help me- a genuine concern was expressed and a desire to actually help me. I currently feel on the road to recovery no doubt owing significantly to Nigel's help during our sessions together. I am truly grateful for his assistance in this difficult period in my life”

Acute Anxiety

"I recently undertook a course of therapy/ treatment with Nigel Spears of Headstart (based in Bolton). When the course finished, I have to say that, over the two months (roughly) of treatment, I have felt a material difference in how I have felt (namely, I have felt more confident and better able to cope) and in how I have prepared for meetings and presentations (particularly where I have been giving them). Whereas before treatment, I would worry about things that I felt I had no control over, now I feel I can do something about such matters and this cuts down on the anxiety. I would certainly recommend Nigel as a therapist. His approach to treatment is careful and practical, he listens very well (so important in his profession in my view) and clearly tailors sessions to the individual having taken full account of their needs, concerns and overall objectives."
