This was my first-time trying hypnotherapy to help navigate some increased anxieties I was experience impacting my day-to-day activities. Alison invited me to pre sessions meets via zoom to explore my individual needs and challenges I was experience. Alison is an incredibly warm and friendly practitioner and immediately made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. She helped alleviate anxiety about the process and explained to me how hypnotherapy works. You are given a tape recording to get used to the experience followed up by an intensive hypnosis session. This was a lot more relaxing than a thought it would be, and I felt in safe space the entire time. Post session Alison sent me my personalised recording which I listened to before bed for a few weeks. We had a post session to catch up on impact and Alison was always prompting me to contact her if I needed support with the process. The change for me was incredible with gradually improvement in my anxiety levels, I have been able to gain control over spilling anxiety and negative thoughts and find myself dipping back to the recording if the challenges arise again. Thankyou Alison

Alison was extremely helpful and encouraging in my journey to helping myself and feeling good again. A fantastic therapist and overall good hearted person who is always on hand to respond to any questions, would highly recommend
I came to Alison when I saw her advertise her weight shedding programme back in March 2022. I’ve successfully lost and then regained weight over the last 18 years. I was fed up of the cycle of “being good”, losing weight, rewarding myself for it with food, feeling guilty, regaining the weight and so on. I also felt like I put myself last, looking after the rest of the family first. Something had to change so I thought I would try something different. Alison allowed me to explore hypnosis for the first time in a really safe, non-judgmental environment. I looked forward to the sessions every week and the group was not like a traditional diet group. The experience of each hypnosis session was unique to each of us and we were able to share as much or as little as we liked. I felt relaxed and had a much deeper understanding of where my eating behaviours had come from. I noticed changes almost immediately such as being able to walk past the staff room without taking a biscuit or three, not wanting a pudding (even though I had previously always had room for pudding even if I was full) and thinking about myself first for once. I have learnt and continue to learn so much more about nutrition and our amazing bodies. Calorie counting, slimming groups and restrictive diets are a thing of my past - I truly believe this. My mindset has changed completely and I feel empowered to meet my final goals in the new year and to continue this much healthier lifestyle forever. I can sit writing this review with a house full of Christmas chocolate, knowing and more importantly, feeling like I don’t have to eat it all! For me this is massive and is the complete opposite to how I felt this time last year. So if you are feeling like you have tried every diet going and still aren’t where you want to be then I would highly recommend Alison’s programme.

Wow - what do I say about this amazing lady. She made me feel so safe and relaxed, her manner and the way in which she understands your situation is incredible. I have seen immediate changes and I listen to the hypnosis every evening. I have already recommended Alison to friends, working with her will be the best decision you ever make.

I was recommended to Alison to help with weight loss, my sessions included hypnotherapy face to face in her home, telephone calls and zoom. She is flexible to what suits the client best and is a truly lovely person, so calming and relaxing. All sessions leave you feeling positive, empowered and chilled out. I enjoyed them very much and the best part is that your mind is given the tools to achieve your objective. For me that was losing weight and keeping it off without it being a constant battle. In short, it works, let Alison help you to help yourself. Thank you

I came to Alison about a number of issues I was having. I had never done hypnotherapy before and expected it to be a "knock you out, reprogram the problem areas and wake up fixed" process but it was so much more than that. I was in tears during our session as she helped guide me deep to the root of the problems I was having. This isn't a sticking plaster solution, it genuinely helped me to overcome and better some issues that had become very problematic in my life. I highly recommend you try this out.

I'm currently working with Ray to help me with my mindset as poor negative mindset has been very challenging for me and I'm trying to improve it. I'm only a quarter of the way through the course and I am already beginning to be more aware of what's important to me, what makes me feel great and what doesn't. It's helping me to realise what areas of life are most important to me. It's making me more aware of my thoughts and feelings and also how my qualities and personality can help my customers and people I care about and why that's important to me. Ray has a very relaxed approach to his work and it immediately helps you feel at ease and helps you to open up. I highly recommend him and I'm eagerly looking forward to the rest of the course.

I approached Alison because I wanted to make sure I was getting the right amount of quality sleep to be productive every day. As small business owners on our own clock and with ambitions and plans, a sluggish or a poor day can result in missing goals, being less than 100% for our clients, or meaning that we have less time for our loved ones in the evening or at the weekend if it takes longer to get done what needs doing. It doesn't matter how good your business strategy and plan is, if your body doesn't have the fuel in the form of energy to push you forward, then it's pointless. I booked a one-hour Sleep To Live Zoom workshop which included very thorough and practical advice and insights and a live hypnotherapy session. Alison shared the recording of the live hypnotherapy session with me afterwards to use before bed. I must admit, I struggled with that - the recording is great and is relaxing on its own. But using technology before the act of sleeping counteracted the benefits of it for me personally. But here's the really important thing: that didn't really matter. Combining just a few changes from what I picked up in the tips in the workshop and Alison showing me how to relax myself to a point where my body is ready for sleep, I find it much easier to get to sleep quicker, and I'm enjoying a restful night's sleep much more than I was doing before. For the sake of an hour of your time and a small financial investment in your health and wellbeing, I'd strongly recommend Alison's Sleep to Live workshop to other business owners. It's been very beneficial to me.

I have had a couple of sessions with Alison. One for weight loss and one for sleep. Both sessions were amazing. Alison is truly an amazing lady and is very professional in her work. She has one of the most calming voices I haver heard which is fantastic for the work that she does. I would absolutely highly recommend Alison and AlRay Hypnotherapy.

When your 18yo daughter tells you they think they need to speak to a professional about something they don't want to talk to you about, you feel like you've been stabbed through the heart! Fortunately, when this happened to me, I knew Alison and was able to put my daughter in touch with her directly. As a result of her sessions with Alison, my daughter did talk to me about what was going on, and she really began to understand herself and her feelings and emotions. Alison made a huge positive impact in our lives at a time I was rather panicked, to say the least, about what was going on. I will never be able to thank her enough. If you are going through anything and need someone's help, then please book a discovery call with Alison. It may just change your life.

Right from my initial call with Ray, I knew I was in the right place with AlRay Hypnotherapy. Ray's calm yet authoritative, knowledgeable approach put me at ease throughout our time working together. I'll admit to being sceptical about hypnotherapy, but was immediately reassured following my discovery call with Ray. He presented a very relaxed environment for our session and his manner and attention to detail throughout were second to none. Ray is someone I hold in the highest regard - I couldn't be happier with my experience and would happily recommend AlRay.

I was always thinking in my head that I am not good enough to carry out such and such a task or it was too difficult for me to accomplish. However now after undergoing RTT my self-confidence and self-belief is slowly growing day by day. Anyone who is contemplating RTT but has doubts I would say go for it 100%. Ray listens attentively to you during the RTT session and is very relaxed which allows you to open up and pour out your heart in terms of how you are feeling and what improvements you want in your life. I would certainly use the services of Ray again in the future.

I need to say what a fantastic therapy this is, like no other I've had in the past. Alison was so calming and reassuring. My story..... on 20th January this year I had a total mental breakdown, I went out in the car intending to crash it into a wall, police, crisis team my husband and my daughter were waiting for me when I got back home. I was in total dispare. over the coming month I had contact with my GP and the crisis team but no offer of any kind of therapy. In May the feeling of taking my own life was so strong that again I reached out for help to no avail. Then a friend mentioned RTT. Had my first Zoom session with Alison on 5th May and theres no question of looking back. wow how powerful is our mind if we tell it the right things, don't get me wrong it's not all been easy as I had doubts that it wasn't working. But Alison was the voice of reason, in fact I told her she was like a little imp on my shoulder haha reminding me that 'I am enough'

My wife Debbie, talked me into having a session with Ray. At the start of the session I was very sceptical about it, but I was amazed how Ray made me feel at ease and it was very relaxing throughout. During the most difficult period in my life, Ray has helped me reach a far better place and helped me overcome many anxieties and worries. He has always been there for me even after the sessions finished. Without Ray I do not know where I wouldn't be today and I would highly recommend Ray and Alison's sessions. Thank you so much Ray for your support and guidance.
Phil Roberts
Highly recommend AlRay Hypnotherapy. After one session I feel so much better and have answered a lot of questions. Alison puts you at ease and is very professional throughout the session. After being originally slightly sceptical, I’m so pleased I had it done.

Alison puts you at ease before the session starts. You are fully in control of what you do and say, you just end up feeling very relaxed, like you are soaking in a lovely warm bath. I started to produce a lot of acid causing severe acid reflux. Through RTT Alison managed to get to the root of my problem. You are given a recording of the session which you listen to every day for at least 21 days. A week on from treatment and I am already feeling the benefit of less reflux. I would recommend you try this treatment from either Alison or Ray at AlRay Hypnotherapy.

I will keep it simple. I was VERY skeptical. However, I was also VERY tired of suffering from depression and anxiety. Ray helped walk me through a process and I now see myself on a pilgrimage moving forward. I am SO glad I didn't let my skepticism keep me stuck any longer. My only advice is call and see if they can help. He helped me......
R Allen
I had a session with Ray, for my eczema, which brought to light a few feelings and ideologies about myself I hadn't figured out/dealt with, which may have been the cause, after the session, my mood was definitely elevated and I felt better/calmer in general. His voice is also very calm/soothing. I would definitely recommend to anyone!
Nina M
I was a little sceptical about being hypnotised as I thought I wouldn’t be susceptible. Ray had explained to me, prior to the session, that I would not be “asleep” (as I had previously thought I would be) and that I would be completely aware of my surroundings the whole time. True to his word, that is exactly how it was. I thought I would feel self-conscious and vulnerable during the session, but I felt completely safe and relaxed throughout as a result of Ray’s calming and confident approach. Following the session, Ray provided me with a recording to listen to daily. I found this so helpful in cementing the message of the RTT session. I still listen to this on a regular basis at night before going to sleep. It has helped me to totally change the way I think about myself and to realise that I am enough. Ray has been approachable, friendly and professional throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend AlRay Hypnotherapy to anyone who is not happy with some aspect of their life. You really can make a change.
