Sports Enhancement client – London Marathon May 2012


I recently visited Celia Bird at Hypnotherapy Associates in Ipswich for a course of Hypnotherapy. I am a keen runner and had secured a place to run in the London Marathon, which I was delighted about. Midway through my training for this event I began to develop a few minor niggles/injuries which impacted on my feelings of confidence,where I doubted my ability to run my best in this race. When I visited Celia Bird at her practice she was professional, supportive, kind and patient while I explained and explored my feelings of anxiety. In a deeply relaxed state she was able to refocus my mind more towards enjoying the Marathon and having confidence in myself and my abilities without unduly worrying about others. I competed in the marathon last month, an unforgettable experience and achieved the finish time that I had hoped for. I am so pleased that I sought help for this issue as it has helped me to achieve a long held ambition and ultimately has brought me much happiness.

I kept saying to myself, hand the worry over to the experts...you are on the safest form of gtransport...this plane is built to sustain ten times this amount of turbulence!


Thanks once again. LJ


IBS Client


I consulted Celia on the personal recommendation of a friend after I had suffered with debilitating IBS symptoms for a number of years.

My problem escalated to the point where I could hardly leave the "safety" of my house and I studiously avoided any place where there might not be a toilet. A car journey was virtually out of the question and in fact any journey had to be meticulously planned with availabilty of toilets an absolute priority.

I had convinced myself that I was beyond help but I found in Celia someone who understood and listened. Above all, she took the problem seriously. Anyone who has suffered with an IBS related issue will probably know how some people find the topic amusing and so I took great comfort in knowing from the start that Celia was on my side.

Celia has a wonderfully relaxed approach and, using various techniques including hypnosis, she worked with me to find answers and solutions. I found the treatment very relaxing and empowering. After several sessions, but fewer than I had imagined it might take, I was able to confront and control the triggers that caused the symptoms which had been plaguing me for years. Simple tasks such as trips to a supermarket or car journeys, previously a source of mental and physical turmoil, became possible. I, not the condition, was now in control.

I do not know where I would have been without Celia's calm and professional assistance and support. I cannot recommend her too highly.

Pain Management Client - 2013

Dear Celia,
Thank you so much for treating my sore knee in Monteton, France. I will remember what you told me about pain being linked with worry and fear. I do not know what actually did the trick, whether it was talking to you or the way you touched my knee, but I do know that I felt much better the day after and the pain I felt then has not recurred. I'm so lucky to have met you at the right moment.
