Testimonials for Janet Tomlin

Having suffered for many years with constipation IBS, I noticed a distinct improvement in my symptoms during my treatment. Janet is both know​ledgeable and approachable and has a genuine desire to help. As someone who also suffers with anxiety, I found the sessions to be a great opportunity to relax and take some time out just for me. 

I cannot thank Janet enough for her help.

DH, 6 sessions between August and November 2020

         "Janet has really helped me with my IBS struggles; our sessions allowed me to build my confidence back up and improve my relationship with food. This has allowed me to become more social and active, to travel again and overall feel much more confident and happy. 

Janet is very kind, patient and a great listener and she helps explain everything thoroughly. 

I was very sceptical of hypnotherapy at first but I can't recommend it and Janet highly enough!"

MR (aged 22), 6 sessions between February and May 2019 

  Before I started hypnotherapy I had constant anxiety about needing to find a toilet when I was out of the house. Each morning I needed to eat early enough to ensure that I had stopped going to the toilet before I left the house. I needed to wait at least an hour and a half after I had eaten.

  Eating out at lunch time was also becoming an issue; shortly after eating I would need to rush to a toilet, and on the odd occasion this happened after eating an evening meal. Following a near accident whilst out I began to always carry with me extra clothing and items to clean myself.

  This situation was affecting my life and that of my partner. I felt I had lost myself. I was anxious all the time when out of the house and the situation was controlling where I went and what I did.

  I had six sessions with Janet between August and December. My anxiety was immediately reduced and I began to feel much calmer from the start. Janet, explained in an easy to understand way, how the digestive system worked and what was happening to me during episodes of IBS. She taught me techniques to help me relax myself and to help control my symptoms. After 6 sessions I have considerably improved, which is amazing as I have had this problem for over 30 years.

  In the past I've tried amongst others Colofac, Fybogel, the FODMAP diet, Buscopan and Amitriptyline. Hypnosis is the only thing that has worked. It's also given me the ability to feel in control, rather than feel controlled by my symptoms. As a result my anxiety is considerably improved. I now feel confident that I have the ability to control my symptoms and believe that things will continue improving. I can’t thank Janet enough.

JM, December 2018

  I have had 7 hypnotherapy sessions and I feel they have been of benefit to me, to the extent that I am more relaxed and not panicking when my IBS symptoms occur. In the past, I found travelling difficult to cope with. However, I feel I am more in control and can cope much better now. In between my sessions, Janet gave me recordings to listen to and they too have been very helpful towards my improvement. I wholeheartedly recommend Janet, as she soon made me feel comfortable in my sessions and is also a very friendly person.

I cannot believe the change in me.

I feel much better in every part of my body and mind.

MM (6 sessions Feb- July 2016) October 2016

  After five sessions of Hypnotherapy for IBS with Janet Tomlin, everything's going pretty well. I would say it's improved substantially.

I've worked out it's nearly 20 years since my IBS started - my bowel just used to seem to stop, with bloating and pain and embarrassing grumbling noises. I've tried an elimination diet, adding and removing dietary fibre (both soluble and insoluble in turn), fybogel, the fodmap diet, and colonic irrigation to name a few.

  However hypnosis is the only thing that has worked long-term to control it. It's also given me the ability to feel in control, rather than controlled, by the situation and I don't get anxious about it anymore.

Thank you Janet.

EB, November 2015

Before I started hypnotherapy, I had anxiety about going to the toilet where ever I was. This was mainly in novel situations, but it stopped me from being my self as I wasn't relaxed and it was controlling where I went and what I did.

After hypnotherapy sessions, my anxiety was immediately reduced and I had a much calmer outlook. Janet taught me multiple techniques to relax me and deal with the problem. After 6 sessions I haven't had any issues since, and now feel more confident in the control I have over my problem.

Thanks for all your help Janet!

LM (aged 19) August 2015

 I was at a point in my life where things were getting out of proportion and causing unnecessary anxiety, and IBS was getting in the way of enjoying the future.

I decided to try hypnotherapy and chose Janet Tomlin because I found that in her earlier career she had spent some time working in the particular area of my health issue. I thought that the combination of hypnotherapy and previous professional knowledge might be a bonus and, for me, this proved to be true, but I know that Janet's empathetic approach would enable her to help anyone. Janet is a very quiet, calm and experienced hypnotherapist who takes time to explore you and your problem and to help in a very positive way.

I am most grateful to her for the process and for giving me the tools to cope in the future. I know I made the right choice.
