I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the major life change you have made for me
which I thought was impossible.
I came to see you last year as I have had a fear of dogs since I can remember and could not pinpoint why.
I was so bad that I would avoid walking and drive everywhere in case I encountered a dog in the street
and had not been with my children to the park for over 3 years.
Even the drive to the park would be a nightmare in itself. I would get hot
flushes, had clammy hands and my heart would be beating as though I had just run a marathon. My last
experience to the park (at that point) was just mixture of screaming and tears which left me so upset and
embarrassed that I vowed from that day I would never enter a park again.
I really needed to get this sorted as I noticed my five year old daughter
picking up on my reactions and I could see she was going down the same route. I was more than
aware fear can ruin your life and I didn’t want my children to have to go through the same thing.
This is the reason I searched the net, to do something about it. When I came to see you
Julie I felt really nervous as I didn’t know what to expect. But to be honest it is one of the most
uplifting experiences of my life.
After my session I was taken over by a huge feeling of 'freeness.' I felt so relaxed and stress
free. Later that day I went to the park with my husband to see whether my fear of dogs been banished from
inside of me. I remember noticing that my anxiety levels where next to none and no clammy hands!! I had a
great time but to my surprise there was not a dog in sight. To be honest I was slightly disappointed
as I was eager to see how I would react.
Since then I have had several encounters with our friends on four legs and I can
honestly say I am actually happy to be around dogs now. My children love them and that is the most
reassuring thing for me. Don’t get me wrong I am still cautious around dogs I don’t
know, especially when they are around my children. The fear is now cautiousness which isn’t
restricting or controlling in any way.
My family and friends have noticed the change in me. Especially my husband who always had the front
seat when it came to watching me having an anxiety attack and I know he is glad I had the
I also enjoy listening to the cd you gave me. I use it to wind down on an evening (and sometimes to
help me get to sleep). I feel I have a more positive approach to life. I feel coming to see you
has changed my way of thinking a great deal.
Again thank you for your help and support Julie. I would not have I would not have been able to
achieve this without your help.
