I also benefitted from the relaxation techniques."

" Thank  you Sue.  Life brings some tough challenges along the way + you really helped through a dark period in life.""I have just returned from holiday and I wanted to tell you of my flying experience.  I came to you in Summer 2011 in order to see if you could help me over the fear of flying.   I continued to listen to the CD you made for me at regular intervals, I was quite calm and did not get upset at any time even though it got quite turbulent and my partner was really impressed. Although flying will never be my favourite pastime I would like to thank you for giving me the confidence to tackle my phobia head on, and our lovely holiday wasn’t ruined by the travelling. Many thanks."
