Other Conditions


Below are some testimonials from clients for a range of different conditions that I have worked with them on. This is just a sample of the types of conditions clients have come to see me with. If you would like to discuss your specific circumstances please do get in touch for your free 30 minute initial consultation.



I have been able to reduce the amount and the frequency of Alcohol that I am consuming, at the start I was drinking large amounts every day, I am now drinking 1 or 2 glasses only a few times a week. I feel more able to cope and alcohol isn’t controlling my daily life anymore, I am in control!

Sharrie helped me work towards my goal and I was always made to feel at ease and comfortable, never forced into anything I hadn’t wanted. Sharrie was very friendly and easy to talk to. I wasn’t really sure at the start if this was going to work for me as I only wanted to reduce my Alcohol Intake, and not give it up completely, but I am glad I persevered and am totally happy with the results.

Mrs A, Sept 2013



The sessions we have had have helped me to think more rationally and clearly about situations which would have previously got me stressed and cross and possibly ‘explode’. I’d like to thank you for helping me with my issues and giving me the tools and confidence to better control my anger at all times.

Richard M, May 2013



I have suffered with anxiety, agoraphobia and depression for many years. The symptoms had become all consuming and it had become difficult to function. I felt like I was in a nightmare and could not wake up. Following the first hypnotherapy session with Sharrie I felt calmer and a lot more positive, actually believing that my mental health could improve. The sessions gave me a wonderful sense of relaxation which was a welcome relief from the anxiety and slowly but surely I was able to achieve this state of relaxation at home listening to the various CD’s provided by Sharrie. I now feel that I have made a solid start to challenging my negative thoughts and I have the tools to manage my anxiety more effectively. Sharrie helps you to feel at ease very quickly in safe and comfortable surroundings.

Assessment Centre Preparation

With the hypnosis and relaxation techniques I felt very well prepared for my interviews and assessment day. They gave me an added edge! Sharrie is a true professional, highly recommended.

CH, March 2012



Helped me to relax and sleep again. Stopped me having terrible dream. The main thing helping me deal with the loss of my husband and making me realise that I still have a future and to think of the positive things in life Sharrie is kind, caring and very compassionate, giving me time to confide to her all my worries. Very professional, well qualified and absolutely my saviour, helping me to carry on. I would recommend Sharrie to anyone who has a problem with dealing with stress, anxiety etc. Thank you Sharrie.

Cancer Recovery

After I finished breast cancer treatment I struggled to get back to full strength due to a series of debilitating viruses. It seemed as though my immune system was very weak and each time I shook off one virus I’d catch another. This was affecting my energy levels and my ability to do my work. Sharrie did some hypnotherapy sessions with me aimed at boosting the immune system. After the very first session I experienced a boost to my energy levels and since then my immune system has become much stronger. Having the CD to listen to at home also helped reinforce the positive effects.  As well as the hypnotherapy sessions Sharrie taught me some breathing and relaxation techniques which complemented the other work we were doing. I still listen to the CD and practice the relaxation techniques which I find beneficial.

Clare Stevens, April 2013


Chronic Illness

It has enabled me to lead as normal as possible a life since becoming ill. I wasn’t sleeping and was having irrational thought processes but, through both sessions and the CDs, my sleeping pattern has returned to normal and I’m able to face everyday situations. Thank you for everything. I would recommend Hypnotherapy and Coaching etc, from Sharrie, for anyone who is struggling.

S Hodges, June 2013



I visited Sharrie when I felt all aspects of my life were running out of control, and I felt helpless and unable to make order from anything. I had a number of sessions where we worked on various stress reduction techniques, positive thinking, Empowerment, Time management, and over the course of a couple of months the work I did with her transformed my world. I felt in control again, and able to make some very difficult life changing decisions with clarity, confidence and conviction. Since then I have changed my working life, re-located, addressed the balance between work and my family, and am now able to enjoy life again. I can’t say enough about how much Sharrie and the sessions I had with her have impacted on my happiness – life feels unrecognisable now.

Felicity, November 2012



I visited Sharrie during the break-up of my marriage. The sessions took place in a relaxing atmosphere. Whilst being very professional, Sharrie was gentle and sympathetic in her approach. She helped change my life by empowering me with the confidence to make a positive transition to my new life. Think Hypno has made such a positive difference to my life. Sharrie’s professional yet gentle style gave me the clarity and confidence to regain control and follow through with life-changing actions. By continuing to listen to my CDs I’ve managed to keep these changes in my life without conscious effort.

Avril, Nov 2011



I have suffered with depression, low self esteem and weight issues for many years. I sought help through my doctor and counselling, but always seemed to be hovering just above a massive black hole. I went to see Sharrie as a last resort, not expecting anything to change. Well, what a shock, everything did change. Sharrie explained how she could help, showed me tools and techniques to use on a daily basis to help me manage my mood and feelings. Sharrie helped me to understand I need to manage my wellbeing on a daily basis and gave me CDs to listen to which actually helped. Since seeing Sharrie my self esteem has improved, the black hole is the size of a pinhead and I am learning to love and live life again. My weight is no longer a problem, I am still overweight, but using the tools and techniques given to me by Sharrie, I have started to lose weight and keep it off.

TN, December 2012  



I had been suffering from severe eczema for about a year which was made worse because I couldn’t get to sleep at nights because of the itching. I’d spend hours awake every night just scratching. After only one session with Sharrie and listening to the CD she gave me, when I went to bed, I was literally asleep within 5 minutes. This continued every night and after only four weeks my eczema had started to heal amazingly quickly. After six weekly sessions we reduced the sessions to one a month and in these sessions Sharrie now works with me to come up with ways to help me learn to cope with the stresses in my life.

Pat P, February 2012


Fear of Dentist

Working with Sharrie has minimised my ‘gag reflex’ and enabled me to have a long-delayed dental x-ray. The CDs and relaxation techniques are also helping in other stressful areas of my life. A big thank-you to Sharrie.

K Thornhill, July 2012 


Fear of Driving

Thank you for helping me with my driving. This has definitely made me happier with my driving, if I hadn’t come to see you I would not have been driving now.

Jackie B, December 2013


Fear of Flying

The sessions have made feel in greater control of my anxieties and that I am “the master of my own thoughts”. Therefore, why worry about something that has not and might not happen. Identifying when you were feeling stressed and had high levels of anxiety was very useful as the techniques helped. Relaxing my muscles, especially my shoulders and legs were an important tool. Breathing techniques, i.e. through your stomach muscles were of great help. I downloaded the cd’s onto my ipod and I listened to them before and during my 14 hour flight. They helped me to relax and I did not take a sleeping tablet for the first time in a couple of years! In fact I managed to sleep! The hypnotherapy sessions in the office were very relaxing and I was made to feel at ease by Sharrie. Even just talking about my fear helped me. It hasn’t completely eliminated my fear of flying but I feel in so much more control.

 Chris, June 2012


Fear of Hospital Procedure

The sessions I had enabled me to get through a hospital procedure that on previous occasions I had issues with. This was achieved by employing the various techniques that Sharrie taught me which were complimented with her cd’s. Furthermore they are tools which I can now use on an ongoing basis to help with stress reduction and relaxation. Sharrie only employed the number of sessions that were necessary to achieve what she felt would be of benefit to me. I thank her for the benefical help I received.

TG, August 2012


Fear of Public Speaking

Working with Sharrie has helped me in so many ways in my personal life and in relation to work. With her guidance and support I have learnt how important it is to relax, to focus on the positive and to believe in myself. My confidence has grown, as has the belief that anything is possible, if I put my mind to it. My fear of public speaking has diminished and I am learning to be more assertive in my personal relationships. Sharrie has the ability to put you at ease and to tease out the real source of your problems. She is altogether approachable, personable and has a wealth of knowledge and experience to give, in support of her clients. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone. The things I have learnt, during our consultations, and on reflection at home, have helped me change my approach to life for the better!

IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)

I went to see Sharrie because I had suffered from IBS for many years. After just a few sessions with her, my symptoms have subsided dramatically and I would have no hesitation in recommending Sharrie for treatment such as she gave to me.

Ginny, January 2013



I found Sharrie Manno very helpful for the pains I have suffered over many years after seeking many other treatments. The pains are still there but the breathing and the CD’s help me sleep at night.

Sheila Warrington, October 2013



Techniques for breathing help me remain calm. Counting backwards from 100 (Deeply deeply deeply relaxed) helps me to sleep. “STOP Clap” is helping my negative thought patterns. Generally felt that I was much more calm and confident in interview than I normally would have been. Really enjoyed the work we did in sessions, and listening to CDs was enjoyable and worthwhile too. I now have various techniques to help my confidence, calmness and mood and feel that these will be long lasting.

C Barker, July 2013


Low Mood
My sessions with Sharrie have helped me get on with my life instead of worrying what might happen in the future. They also helped to get rid of past resentments and not hold on to anger. I particularly liked that on the first session you discuss what you want and where you want to be and Sharrie gives you an overview of what will happen. Then you decide how you want to proceed.

Wendy T, May 2013



Going to Think Hypno and meeting Sharrie has given me the confidence I needed to set up my new business. It has taught me to be comfortable in myself and not to hide the talents I have for fear of being mocked by others. I would not hesitate to recommend her as I feel she gave me my old self back and now I am happy and content, a feeling I had lost for a while. 

RJ, October 2013


Nail Biting

I think the most positive experience was that I suddenly became very conscious of my actions and therefore able to hinder my nail biting. It surprised me how much of the work we did together, I was quickly able to apply to my habits. A very good experience indeed.

Obsessive Thoughts/Habits

In general terms, I’d say at both the emotional and the logical level, it’s had a profound impact. At the emotional level, it’s given me back my peace of mind, and a sense that I can relax again. I’m nowhere near as angst-filled or as stressed as I used to be, and I’m left with the feeling of liberation. At the logical level, it’s given me methods of controlling bad habits and of understanding all the bad mental habits I’d formed, and why they were affecting me. It’s given me the tools I need to help myself in future. Just a simple thanks! As I say, I feel kind of liberated and that I’ve gotten my life back once again.

Mark Newton, September 2012 



It has given me the techniques to stop myself/mind from dwelling on the negatives. It has also helped me to be able to relax my body which is always tense. It has made me aware of bad habits which contribute to my pain and how to combat these. The CD’s help me to relax or sleep when either my body or mind is unable to.

S Mole, October 2013


Panic Attacks and Migraines

Before attending my sessions I had a lot of issues with stress, migraines and panic attacks, sometimes even preventing me from leaving the house. From the first session I became brighter, happier and healthier overall. My panic attacks have not ceased completely but I now know how to recognise the onset and actually stop them from becoming a full attack. I very rarely suffer with any of my aforementioned issues, Sharrie has even helped me sleep regularly and well (her CD’s are a god send!). Since my last session I have improved my life tenfold, I am more motivated, have gained new employment and a new direction and I feel comfortable in my own skin again. I couldn’t have achieved any of this without my sessions with Sharrie! Sharrie’s approach is very comforting and helpful, she provides a great insight into issues and has a friendly and positive demeanor. Personally, I found the best thing about the sessions were sharrie’s fact sheets and ability to explain the biology and psychology behind my issues, as this helped me to understand and prevent what was happening.

Hazel, October 2012


Performance Anxiety

Very professional and reassuring during the hypnosis sessions. The CDs are very helpful for relaxation. I found the breathing exercises helped me to calm down. Lots of tips and good advice to help control negative thoughts and anxiety.

John R, September 2012



It gave me another way to look at the issues I was facing and formulate a pragmatic action plan. The sessions provided a way to step away from the everyday and in providing a way to relax helped me move forward to where I wanted to be. Sharrie is very good at teasing out the issues and approaching them in a collaborative ‘can do’ manner. She inspires confidence and helps you to think that you can succeed.

L Keith, October 2012


Social Anxiety

Having the CDs to keep has been a big help. I feel more confident and like going into the gym now. I’ve done more social things than before. I’m doing new things everyday and before I couldn’t do anything.

AB, January 2012



It has made me a lot more rational and more able to sleep soundly!! Sharrie made me feel completely at ease immediately. I would recommend her without hesitation – thanks Sharrie!

Zoe, March 2012



I was a 20 a day smoker who had tried patches and tablets without success. I found Sharrie on the internet and thought what do I have to lose other than a bad habit. I found the initial meeting very helpful and realized it may actually work as it made sense. Sharrie set me home work to log my routines and identify when I smoked and reasons I smoked and also the reasons I wanted to stop. On the day of the session, the 1st hour was spent taking through the techniques to use to change the habit and relieve the cravings. The actual hypno session was very relaxing and worked, as since that day I haven’t smoked a cigarette at all. As a person who has no or very little will power I was a sceptical of this working but nothing else I had tried did so what why not try. I was the best £150 I have ever spent. I am so happy to be a non smoker and be free from the cigarettes I have the control now and it feels great.

Sharon, March 2013



I have been able to reduce my stress levels considerably and have been given the tools to continue this process for myself.  The cds are particularly useful in keeping my stress levels at a manageable level.  I have also found the CBT techniques very useful. I found your approach professional, non-judgemental, warm, knowledgeable and genuine.  Thank you very much for your help, you have enabled me to make some significant progress in improving my quality of life. I would definitely recommend you to other people needing help.

Julie Brown, October 2012


Weight Loss

I approached Think Hypno for help with overeating and was impressed with how personalised the approach was and how Sharrie quickly uncovered the issues that were leading to my problem.  Sharrie has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in psychology and hypnotherapy as well as the ability to use tools such as NLP and CBT so that she can tailor your programme to make it specific to your particular needs. I felt this approach got much speedier and long lasting results than a “one size fits all” approach of many other hypnotherapists. Thanks to Sharrie I now handle stress so much better, have greater self esteem, and have taken back control of my eating. I feel much happier and healthier both physically and mentally.
