''Life clinics helped me enormously with my confidence issues and later my phobia of snakes, or anything resembling them, which was rapidly spiralling out of control. I couldn’t imagine ever being able to cope with this issue but I was shocked at how quickly Marcia’s techniques helped me get over my fears and helped me regain control of the situation. I now know that it is possible to tackle any issues that may arise and come out the other side. I particularly like the CD provided, which, along with the tapping techniques, allows me to relax and prepare for any situations that may challenge my confidence.''

“I found the opportunity to discuss the most private and emotionally complicated (to me, at any rate) issues with someone so sympathetic and non judgemental as Marcia extremely helpful. My sessions with Marcia proved invaluable. I came away emboldened by each session and far more able to see the truth within myself.”
"My sessions with Marcia really helped me understand why I was so anxious, to deal with that anxiety and enabled me learn how to undo bad patterns of behaviour."
Female, 40's Canterbury, Kent
"I went to Marcia with a debilitating fear of heights that before long would have restrained my life, now I have claimed back control. The freedom this gives me now is exhilarating!"
Natasha, Faversham, Kent
"Our overall experience of therapy was 100% positive! The sessions far exceeded my expectations and my daughter felt very comfortable in the sessions. We were both put at ease from the minute our appointment started and we both felt that we could talk about any of our problems, however uncomfortable that may have been. The main features that I think helped Rosie was the 'worry tree' and the 'tapping' lessons that we had to reduce her anxiety. These worked extremely well for her. Marcia has an extremely friendly, welcoming and understanding nature which put us both at ease from the minute we met her, we were both very lucky to have had the pleasure of her helping us! We would certainly go back to Marcia in the future, should we need to, she gave us great confidence that our problems could be solved, and they were!"

''My experience with Life Clinics was outstanding. I had the pleasure of working with Marcia, Julie and Andy. They were all so friendly, warm and empathetic to my situation. I was extremely anxious about first session mainly due to the agoraphobia and not having much contact with the outside world. Within minutes of our session they put me at ease by discussing what we were going to be covering over the forth coming sessions. Julie showed me certain Tft techniques to help calm my anxiety, which decreased and allowed me to cope with the rest of the session. I saw Andy and Julie on a weekly basis for 6 sessions. Over my time with them I was shown how to use tft in an everyday routine as well as more often for certain anxieties. I had hypnotherapy and regression work. Along with this, emails to them and daily listening to Marcia\'s relaxation cd I learnt to calm my system down and manage to leave the house on short periods. Since my sessions my confidence, self-esteem and outlook on life has changed so much. I am not the negative, anxiety ridden, timid person I was when they met me. I have achieved many things which felt were a mile stone away. I was over the moon to be asked to be my niece\'s godmother. Although, I was anxious about being in a church full of people and seeing people/family I hadn't seen in years. I achieved it, had a wonderful day and was elated with my progress. This wouldn\'t have been possible without the tools these wonderful people had taught me. For the first time in years I managed to get out of my house and enjoy the hop festival in Faversham, which I never thought would be possible again. I have missed out on so much of my life,almost 10 years of being a prisoner in my home due to the agoraphobia and relied on family to do my shopping etc. These truly wonderful people have very kindly helped me to build my life again. I am learning to love myself again and have faith in achieving the things I thought were impossible. I have a way to go to get to where I want to be. I am truly elated with all of the things I have achieved in such a short time working with these fantastic people. I am eternally grateful and Thankful for everything they have taught me and helped me achieve. Had I not contacted Marcia I would still be a prisoner in my own home. I whole heartedly recommend anybody wanting to improve their life in anyway to get in touch with this clinic. As I have learnt, not only the first step into getting my life back it was the best decision I have made in years. Thank you once again Marcia, Julie and Andy for all of your time, support, hard work, tools and kindness in helping me to achieve this :o) xxx''

''Deciding to book an appointment with Marcia is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have tried everything to lose weight from prescription and over the counter medications to meal replacements and healthy eating/not so healthy eating diet's. Nothing has worked. I have lost weight on various healthy eating diets but struggled doing so because being told that I could eat what I wanted, when I wanted meant something different to me than it did to the person who devised the diet! I felt guilty if I was 'naughty', then would stop all together. I would eat when I was sad, I would eat when I was happy, I didn't actually need an excuse I'd just eat anyway! If I was upset it would be nothing for me to pop to town and buy a family size dessert and eat the lot in one go along with anything else I bought while in the shop.
Since working with Marcia, I really do eat what I want when I want it! She's helped me to recognise when I'm physically hungry and reassured me it's ok to fulfil that hunger with what ever I want (I mean anything!!) without feeling guilty! I no longer cook separate meals for me but eat exactly the same as the rest of my family. I've lost 3 stones so far in total, although I'm not obsessed with weighing myself and I am fitting into jeans and trousers that were too small for me 4 years ago when bought! I also enjoy exercising regularly, pre Marcia I always had an excuse why I couldn't/didn't exercise. I could go on and on singing Marcia's praises! But I'm aware that I must be sounding like an advert which honestly I'm not. I'm just very grateful that I tried her, the money I've spent is less than I was spending on the food that I binged on. I feel better than I have in a long time, Marcia's sessions really have changed my life.''

"Hi Marcia - I just wanted to update you on progress. I'm extremely happy to report that I have been a non smoker for a week now and am definitely feeling the benefits already from our session, both mentally and physically. The tapping exercise has been particularly invaluable and has been put to the test several times already during some very stressful moments! I love the self hypnosis recording and have been raving about you to people!! You gave me the tools to change my life and I have. The knock on affects of feeling calm and letting things wash over me has transformed me lol!!! Thank you so much."
Claire, Faversham, Kent
"Hello Marcia - I wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for your help in the last year. We underwent IVF again in November / December, our third and final go. I can honestly say that prior to treatment I felt the calmest and most confident in the process than I have ever felt. The difference was so significant, and I was centred and together, ready to give myself over to the process and not worry knowing that what would be would be. After the FET I frequently told myself that I trusted my body to do what it needed to do to welcome new life within me. I am so pleased to say that yesterday we found out that I am pregnant!"
"I approached Julie after much research into the best methods available to help my son resolve a number of very serious phobias he has had since a young child. As he was now 15 it was beginning to interfere with his school work, especially Biology and Sports Science, the reason for this was due to his phobias being, blood, bones and the heart.
Julie very quickly established herself as his confident and between them they worked together over 6 weeks, working through his very severe reactions he had just even talking about these subjects.
The NLP and Hypnosis along with some immediate visualisation processes meant he could see and feel improvements by week 2. He realised by changing his thought process he could overcome the challenges that had been there all his life. He looked forward to each meeting, knowing he was heading towards a worry free life and as a result his confidence grew.
Julie is now a very special person in our lives and our son no longer even remembers what or why bones, blood and the heart ever gave him any issues. Quite frankly, it’s a miracle!"
Mrs H, Kent
"I wasn’t sure I would write a review on Julie’s webpage but if it even helps one person to pick up the phone and turn up at an appointment it will be worth it.
I am a professional with a high powered job and severe anxiety and agoraphobia were the last things I would ever have thought I would have suffered from. There is a stigma attached to any form of mental illness especially when you have a high powered professional job and that’s why I prefer to remain anonymous.
It started after a fall resulted in the fracture of my shoulder and I couldn’t get out of the house for a few weeks and started to suffer from severe anxiety. I didn’t know why and I didn’t know what was happening. I couldn’t sleep, eat, leave the house or carry out everyday activities; I couldn’t even go outside the door to stand in the garden. It was the most frightening thing I’ve ever gone through.
Picking up the phone and asking for help was an extremely hard thing to do, it took a week of looking at the phone, ringing the number and putting the phone down before I could ring and finally talk to someone at the end of the phone.
To turn up for the appointment was a massive step for me to take and to talk to someone I didn’t know was difficult, I didn’t even understand it myself. Julie was great; she was patient and understanding, supportive and kind.
It was hard but Julie put in place for me a “toolbox” of techniques and strategies to enable me to cope with the anxiety and to gradually be able to go out again. Gradually over 6 months and only 5 sessions I was able to work again, shop, walk around a street and shopping centre. I was amazed by the progress I made in a short amount of time.
Julie supports you and encourages you all of the time, but it’s up to you to put in all the hard work to get the results you want to achieve. Julie tells you how well you are doing and makes you feel confident and good about yourself again and praises you for all your achievements, but its then up to you to tell yourself how well you are doing and to praise yourself for your achievements.
I hope this will help someone else to have the courage to pick up the phone, it’s not easy but it’s worth it. I wouldn’t have my life back now if I hadn’t made that call and had the courage to turn up for the appointment. I cannot thank Julie enough."
