Vic's Counselling and Hypnotherapy

24 Carlton St, Widnes WA8 6NP, UK – 07894 212715

I've had a flying phobia for the last 17 years which had always resulted in me having panic attacks when flying. Vicki was great, she really got to know and understand what was happening. She was so friendly and made me feel at ease right from the start. From that she worked specifically to my needs and we worked on my phobia, following 3 sessions I was due to fly on holiday and the result was amazing! I got on the plane, happy, excited and had no panic attack! Can't thank Vicki enough, such a friendly and amazing woman!

Brilliant service from Vic. She has done some relaxation work with my family and that was amazing and really helped them and has also attended and done workshops at a community event I run. The feedback from all who attended about Vic's services was brilliant She has a really calm and soothing way in which she does her job and relaxes even the most stressed out of us. She is understanding and listens to all that you have to say. She knows her stuff Great business and highly recommended
