For a number of years I have suffered from both depression and anxiety to the point where I would make excuses not to go out, Id shut myself away and not speak to anyone, which in turn meant I started pushing those closest to me away. I was constantly looking for approval from people and never ever felt good enough, whether it be at work, within relationships or friendships and it was eating away at me on a daily basis, the battle with myself was exhausting!
I am extremely blessed to have had a great upbringing, a successful career and a loving partner so from an outsiders point of view I really didn’t have anything to be depressed about. A number of years back I finally caved and asked for help from the Drs, I am a very proud lady and it took A LOT for me to put my hands up and admit that I wasn’t coping. He put me on anti depressants, and I took these every single day for around 2 years. Every 3 months they would get re-prescribed without anyone really speaking to me about what the underlying problem was.
After 2 years I decided enough was enough, I didn’t want to be on these pills any more, I didn’t want them masking how I really felt but the only real way I could do this was by doing it myself. With the power of good nutrition, exercise and cutting a few toxic people out of my life I managed to come off them completely, and although I felt better, the anxiety was still there…… which is where the lovely Dolina comes in :)
I am actually friends with her amazing daughter Abi who recommended her to me, and I knew I really had nothing to lose….. I couldn’t live like that forever! It was starting to affect my relationship with my partner and I couldn’t let that happen, he means the absolute world to me. Dolina was so incredibly welcoming, honest, open and I felt 100% comfortable telling her everything.
I was convinced that the depression and anxiety had been triggered off by a volatile relationship I was in when I was in my 20’s, but was absolutely shocked to realise that it actually went back to an event that happened when I was11! The experience for me was one I will never forget. Since the treatment I have not had any flare ups of anxiety at all, I am more confidence both within myself and within my relationships and I have my motivation back!! I honestly can not recommend Dolina enough to anyone who has anxiety or depression, and I will never be able to thank her enough for what she has done for me. It’s like she has released me from my own internal prison and Ive finally got my freedom back. Thank you x
Dolina helped my son with his confidence in his sport and his academic work. After his hypnotherapy with Dolina he was noticeably more confident and he commented that he doesn't feel nervous at all when standing up and talking in front of the class and he is also noticeably more confident in his own ability to succeed in his various academic subjects. His sport was the main reason we contacted Dolina as he is very talented but had recently lost a lot of confidence but the first gain after his hypnotherapy he was voted man of the match for his school team and the following Sunday he set up 6 goals for his Sunday side. I would not hesitate to recommend Dolina if you feel your teenager needed help with their confidence with sport or any academic work.
From the start of this year I had been having problems at work, especially with some life changing news which resulted in me become more angry and having a short temper. I visited Dolina for a few times and she helped me see things more positively and made me calmer and happier, through hypnotherapy and NLP. This has now resulted in a positive change in my mind and my soul. I am now more relaxed and my anger has gone and I'm more calmer about things and can handle situations with ease. Thank you Dolina. xxx
I visited Dolina with a fear of Bees and Wasps and basically anything flying in the corner of my eye or buzzing past my ear! After a couple of sessions I have changed from not having windows open, eating outside on an nice sunny day, or enjoying being outside on a sunny day in general, to now visiting open gardens, sitting outside and eating at bbq's and having my car windows open without fear of crashing should something fly in. I can now walk past bushes covered in flowers and feel in control like its nothing! I no longer freak out and panic! I was initially sceptical about seeing a 'hypnotherapist........hmmmmm, we will see sort of person, but having been through the process with you I would recommend you and hypnotherapy to anyone who needs help. You really have changed my life Dolina! Thank you so much!
