Hypnotherapy Testimonials, Brighton

Hello!  My name is Linda Bramley.  As a Brighton-based therapist,  I’m delighted to have helped so many people over the years, so I thought that I would include some hypnotherapy testimonials and reviews for you to look at.  These reviews also include my clients’ assessments of my life coaching services, which I often combine to great effect.

Reading these testimonials gives me a great sense of gratitude.  I feel blessed that so many people have trusted me to help them.

Brighton is a busy place, full of hustle and bustle – and life can be busy and stressful!  Perhaps you’re keen to give up bad habits such as smoking, or feel less anxious.  Or, you’d like to embrace a more positive, healthier way of life.

If you’d like to find out more about my hypnotherapy and life coaching, feel free to contact meRead my reviews first, though!



My life changed when I met you Linda.



I wanted to write and thank you for all your help recently.

I thoroughly enjoyed our sessions and felt comfortable and unintimidated even though hypnotherapy was a new experience for me.

When I came to see you I was having anxiety attacks that woke me from sleep on a daily basis. I’m very happy to tell you that I haven’t had an attack since my first session of hypnotherapy.

I asked you to help me to manage my life better and get important things done to reduce my anxiety. I’m so much more confident to start important tasks and I’m finding that I have more time in my day to accomplish all the things that I need to.

A side product of this is that I am now running regularly and using this to balance the energy in my life better. I am also meditating every day for half an hour using a guided script which I am enjoying very much and never thought I’d do!

Thank you so much for all your tender, loving care and kindness Linda.

Having never done this before, I was fairly cynical to be honest. I didn’t imagine you’d be able to “put me under” or that it could possibly have any effect. It’s nothing like stage hypnotist acts and there’s no risk of barking like a dog or thinking you’re a chicken. I just relaxed, closed my eyes and you spoke to me.  Because what you are saying to me is what I want to say to myself, it’s really worked. I’d definitely recommend my friends to work with you.

I highly recommend Linda for both her hypnotherapy work and as a life coach. I have had several sessions with her ostensibly to help me focus on work and become more efficient. After the first one I noticed an immediate change and improvement in my work habits. Then after the next few sessions I noticed that she has helped me in my private life too giving me useful tools for keeping a positive attitude and feeling happier. My sessions with Linda were a combination of hypnotherapy and life coaching and they have had a profound impact on how I think and live my life. Linda is also a kind and thoughtful person who tailors the sessions to her clients. Everyone can benefit from some life coaching and the addition of hypnotherapy reinforces the positive changes that she facilitates. Thank you for changing my life for the better Linda!

Linda is a fantastic life coach – warm, friendly, understanding and very easy to talk to. She helped and supported me to make changes in my life that have made a difference to my happiness and that of my family. Life has improved hugely as a result. I really enjoyed our sessions and will miss them now the coaching is over. I would highly recommend Linda to anyone who is seeking life coaching and or hypnotherapy. She is fabulous. Thank you!

I cannot recommend hypnotherapy with Linda Bramley highly enough.

I admit I was sceptical when she told me she could help with my fear of flying. Before the treatment, I became increasingly anxious as the departure date approached. I found it difficult to sleep (this is not usually a problem for me), and worried unnecessarily about the preparations, from house-sitters, to getting to the airport, checking in and through security on time.

And then there was take off and ascent which I dreaded. My fear had never actually prevented me from flying but it was an experience that gave me no pleasure at all.

Hypnotherapy has changed this beyond belief. I now look forward to air travel and the whole experience. I don’t get stressed beforehand and I can sleep!  I had not expected or hoped for such a definitive result. The techniques that Linda teaches also can be used for day- to- day stressors, and I use them when I feel that the demands of work and home are getting on top of me.  It is important to put in effort and do the homework, but this takes up very little time and contributes to the end result.  I have also found I am sleeping better, as I used to have nightmares a few times a week which are now much less frequent.

Try hypnotherapy – it really works!!

I will admit that I went into hypnotherapy with a large degree of scepticism.

However, I figured I’d tried everything else to stop biting my nails with no avail, so I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. Linda is a brilliant therapist. She’s very friendly but also very professional, and has an excellent manner and disposition for conducting this kind of thing.  I felt very relaxed and open with her, and she in return was very open to my feedback at the end of each session as to any parts of the therapy I preferred or, conversely, didn’t.

All the therapy itself demands is a desire to succeed, a commitment to the physical time for the prescribed course (I had one session a week for six weeks), and a commitment to the ‘homework’ (most of which is small, practical homework easily built into daily life; a couple of weeks required a small amount of habit recording, but that was it).

I have to say, I’m amazed at the results. Comparing it to previous attempts to stop biting, I feel so much more supported this time; it’s not a constant effort to stop every moment of every day, and indeed on some days the old habit doesn’t even occur to me anymore.  I’m still not biting, which in itself is an achievement, but more so the fact that it doesn’t necessarily even occur to me to bite now; I’m not fighting it any more.

I know this sort of thing may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but then I didn’t think it would be mine and I’m sitting here now wholly corrected (and with long, lovely, growing nails).  Really, what have you got to lose?


I feel a great weight has been lifted from my shoulders


It’s like having a Personal Trainer for the mind


The colours feel much brighter now


Linda is a highly talented motivator with a warm and friendly approach.

Encouraging proactivity and achievable results, Linda has been an uplifting and inspirational coach.

I found the whole experience exceptionally rewarding and have been given some invaluable tools with which to work.

I had the good fortune to meet Linda in the autumn of 2008 for life coaching.  I was recommended by a friend and initially, I didn’t think that it would make my life any better.  So, I guess I went along our of sheer curiosity!  I had several pre-conceptions that life coaching would be like therapy, or counselling – even that Linda would be the bossy sergeant major type!  As you can imagine, I was quite nervous when I first went along.

Linda made me feel very relaxed.  Before long, it felt like I was talking to a good acquaintance.

I was surprised to discover that life coaching is mostly about YOU and your own ability to make decisions regarding change in your life.  A life coach is in effect there to help you along the road to the changes you need.  I found Linda to be the perfect mixture of calm, level-headedness, and firm task setter – all rolled into one with a great sense of humour.  Instead of feeling embarrassed about baring my soul or letting her see all my foibles, I found it easy to talk to her about my quite personal intimate history.

All in all, I found the experience of life coaching to be an extremely helpful aid to help me sort out what I now see as my extremely messy life!  I’ve emerged from it a calmer, more patient and much more organised person – professionally, emotionally and personally – than I was when I started.  I’m so very grateful for all her help and guidance.  I would highly recommend that anyone talks to Linda, to let her help you sort your life out.

Many thanks to you, Linda. With affection.
