I cannot thank Judi enough for helping me overcome my feelings of panic and anxiety which I had suffered on and off for many years. Judi had been recommended to me by a couple of friends whom she had helped, and after 5 sessions of having some hypnotherapy and some help understanding how to overcome these feelings by changing my ways of thinking , and giving me tools and tips to use should I need them, all of which has helped so much to feel calmer and to sleep better. would 100% recommend Judi to anybody who needed to make some changes to improve their life .
I had a number of different issues in my personal life and work, which I was finding it hard to handle. Before the initial meeting I was slightly skeptical, as I didn't necessarily believe this would help me tackle my problems. I reached a point where I had to try something different, as my mental/physical health was suffering, and I wasn't able to cope. I did 10 Sessions with Judi over a 3 month period, and I can categorically say from the 1st meeting to the last, it made a massive impact to my overall well-being. Judi was able to build me up, and help me regain my self-confidence, which had disappeared over the last 3yrs due to certain issues. Judi challenged me to look at things in different ways, and helped to not get emotionally triggered when handling issues in work and in my personal life. I had a lot of stress and anxiety at the beginning stages of my development work with Judi, but bit by bit, she provided help and tools I needed to get better. Now I'm not saying I'm the finished article after 10 sessions, not at all, but Judi's listening abilities/empathy & general experience has given me the confidence to work differently.
After being very sceptical about hypnotherapy, a friend recommended that I speak to Judi Hastings. I have had 5 sessions with Judi and to say she has changed my life is an understatement. I think it all changed from our first session when she took the time to explain to me how our brains work and how we are in charge of our own body. I had experienced claustrophobic panic attacks for over 20 years. I can now say. " I used to be claustrophobic !" She has provided me with the tools to live my life free of panic attacks. I highly recommend anyone to speak to Judi and try hypnotherapy. An extremely positive experience!
Before working with Judi I felt nervous, anxious and exhausted about driving or even the thought of driving! I wouldn't make a car journey unless absolutely necessary. I felt isolated and had no confidence in myself or my driving with the fear of something bad happening. Now I feel happier and comfortable when driving, I feel no anxiety when driving and feel confident in myself. I drive at leisure now, without over thinking about every journey. What I liked most about our sessions was that I felt so comfortable with Judi and looked forward to our seasons every week! I couldn't wait to share my achievements and talk about all the things I was improving on. Judi filled me with confidence and gave me inspiration that I could do anything if I put my mind to it and now I believe it! I would absolutely recommend Judi, she is a wonderful person with amazing knowledge, I don't know we're I would be if it wasn't for Judi.

I was referred to Judi after been involved in a car accident.... I was unable to travel without having anxiety and panic attacks, this then impacted on the rest of my family as I was uncomfortable allowing my children to travel with anybody else. I had bad, reoccurring dreams and sleeps less nights. I found that after spending just one session a week with Judi was I was beginning to have a new mindset, slowly but surely she gave me coping mechanisms, advise and allowed me to understand why I felt the way I did without making me feel like I was being irrational. We also did some hypnotherapy which isn't something I thought I would ever do but this has been out of this world! How I feel now - Not only did Judi help me with travelling in a car, she gave me a new lease of life completely! I'm sleeping again, using her advise on all aspects of my life even when parenting my children and using coping mechanisms at work as well as every day life! I have quit smoking and started jogging, I am now running 6 miles which is absolutely crazy. I am living my life very different to the way I was a year ago. I totally recommend Judi to anybody. She's an amazing lady who made me see life differently and most importantly she made me feel better about myself. I am happy to call myself a car travelling, smoke free, jogger who no longer relies on any form of anxiety medication,my journey has been huge!

Your Time 2 Change changed my life! Thank you I found 'Your Time 2 change' through recommendation. I had been suffering with anxiety and knew that It was time to seek help to turn my life back around to be the confident person I knew I was. Judi was so kind and supportive towards me and made me feel so at ease during our sessions. I really found the sessions beneficial as allowed for great self-reflection and found Judi's tips and advice to be really effective in my day to day life. After a few sessions and a lot of practice, I have managed to overcome my anxiety and it feels amazing to be not the 'old me' but the 'new and even more confident version of me'. The aftercare I have received from Judi has been amazing - especially during these difficult times of the pandemic. Judi always makes sure to check in with me and I know if I ever needed more help in the future she would be there. I can't thank you enough Judi and will 150% recommend you to anyone who is looking to change their life for the better! Thank you x
I was referred to Judi after a cycling accident back in 2017 to assist me in addressing my fears of getting back on my bike. I didn't know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised on how much I got from the sessions. The biggest thing was understanding how much control the human brain has over the way we act and think. Getting to grips with this enabled me to start being more positive and to almost override the way my brain was controlling me. I only wish I had been referred to Judi earlier, as I honestly believe I would not have had to go through what I have over the last 3 years. If anyone is experiencing similar issues then I would highly recommend a visit to Judi. Thanks for everything Judi.
Pleased client
Judi was simply 'amazing', allowed me the space to talk and within no time helped me switch my mood - her suggestions 'believe it or not' began to work from the word go.. I know I have a way to go but instantly felt better and will sleep tonight. Great to get a follow up email with what we discussed to keep me on track, simply can not thank you enough Judi and can't wait for my next session

Judi Hastings quite simply changed my life with the treatment she gave me. I was suffering from anxiety that popped up from nowhere and I could not work out the trigger. I was recommended to see Judi by a friend and she did not disappoint. She knew exactly how to work my mind and exactly what treatment I needed. Judi gave me the confidence I once had and got me back to my self again and for that I am forever grateful. She made me feel so comfortable and it was just like having a chat with my Auntie. Just a week after my last session with Judi I was dreading a night out with my friends (something I would usually do every weekend) but with all the tools Judi had given me I was able to have fun and do something I never thought I would again. She truly is an angel, highly recommend.

Judi has helped me leave traumatic incidents in the past and helped me overcome self-doubt and limiting beliefs that I have held onto for years. She is incredibly professional and clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about her livelihood and helping people. I have and will continue to recommend her highly"
C Smith Company Director
After seeing Judi deliver a brilliant and informative presentation in my workplace, I knew I would like to work with her one on one. Judi is a lovely, down to earth lady who takes everything you say to her on board and offers realistic approaches and explanations on how you can best deal with issues. I specifically wanted help with anxiety. I now feel I am not alone, I now have the information, tools and tips I need to go forward and I know how to implement the techniques which are already helping me improve my life every day. Thank you so much Judi
Jane Smith
I am sooooo grateful for your help Judi I was so closed off and pessimistic to say the least at the start but I understand now why and how I let it affect my life so much, now, there are no words really to express my gratitude, but any time I feel negative I will 🤔 think what would Judi say to me right now!!? The work you do is AMAZING!!!!!

Judi was recommended to help address my ongoing anxiety and weight management issues. Before our sessions, I was struggling with my self-image and confidence I felt too unfit and anxious to go out in public for anything other than work, and even that was a struggle. Meals with my partner, day trips with my children and grandchildren all felt unmanageable and unachievable, sending my anxiety spiralling. Since working with Judi my confidence has increased tenfold, and my anxiety is finally controllable. I no longer isolate myself and seek comfort in food, and instead have rebuilt the support network I had prior to my mental health issues, the coping mechanisms I learnt during my time with Judi have helped change my approach and taught me how to keep moving forward. I'm managing my weight better, consistently losing weight each week since I started sessions, and I've started going on more days out with my children and grandchildren I've even joined in with messy, physical activities such as mud pond diving at outdoor adventure parks! Judi's support and faith in me has changed my life for the better in so many ways, and I'll never be able to thank her enough
Steve, 54, Operations Manager
Judi is amazing, she cured my ultimate fear of birds. This fear was stopping me going out alone, I avoided certain places but it also caused issues for me on holiday and I would constantly worry about it. Judi was brilliant, a lot of people made me feel silly about this fear but she put me at ease and managed to cure this fear after just one session. I would absolutely recommend Judi- she changed my life. Since the session I now go to places I avoided, I don't worry about being out alone...and I even held parrots whilst on holiday...she really did change my life, I can't thank her enough!
Joanne Grant
I attended Judi's sessions after I suffered with panic attacks and didn't feel that the CBT sessions my doctor had arranged for me had helped. I was so desperate because my panic attacks were taking over my life. It became so bad that when I was off work I would spent the entire time worrying about how I am getting to work on the Monday morning. I would have panic attacks when travelling on the train especially if the train stopped in the tunnel or if it was extremely busy. It got so bad that I would plan my journey just to avoid getting the train. My panic attacks also affected my life with my family as it would stop my husband and I doing things together. Judi helped me after just one session. She made me realise that I wasn't going to die if the train stopped and that the feeling I was having was like being excited. Judi helped me to overcome these feelings and to channel them in a positive way. After my first session I had the best night sleep I had in a long time. Each session I attend I was getting more confident and I haven't had a panic attack in over 7 months now. My family have seen the positive impact that these sessions have had on me. I can't thank Judi enough for the help and support she has given me. She has changed my life.I would highly recommend the sessions Judi runs to help us to overcome life's obstacles.

Having worked with Judi with various clients and projects I have nothing but admiration for her qualities in helping people make massive change in their World. Couldn't recommend her highly enough.
Dave Verburg, Director Asentiv Merseyside
Judi has done a fantastic job linking in with our training academy over the past two years. Judi has not only provided training for my team - as she received such amazing feedback we had to bring her back in to do more sessions with the firm as a whole. Judi has a natural gift when it comes to dealing with people and always manages to bring the best out in them. The training that Judi provided was both linked with personal development including NLP and also team building. At the time there where a lot of changes going on in the firm as we were merging with another large organisation so the training helped bring both firms together and also helped us communicate better with each other. I would highly recommend Judi to any business and once you have received one session I guarantee you will want another . The training always leaves the staff feeling positive and ready to take on their next challenge which is great. Judi's relaxed approach to delivering this training allows the staff to freely express their views or concerns which in turn results in a better training session as they are all involved.

Val Hughes, House of Pearl, Liverpool Fashion House
I have worked with Judi for both professional and personal issues. On personal issues, Judi's methods and style help me to overcome issues I had faced for over 15 years, her support and her ability to pinpoint the crux of the situation was a gift and it has left me with a huge sense of peace. Professionally, Judi is marvellous, she asks me the right questions and leads me to solid direction with a clear, calm focus. Her support has help me transition in my career and given me huge confidence and belief in my ability. Thank you :)
Kate Sullivan, Head of Organisational Design
Excellent training course from Judi on Resilience. Very insightful and plenty of food for thought in terms of how we think and how to re-frame situations
Sarah Dowd, Head of Knowledge Services
Over the past few months I have worked with Judi on an issue I have been trying to overcome for many years. All I can say is that from my very first session I noticed a shift in my approach to the issue and an absolute elimination of the control it was holding in my life. As well as this though, I feel so much calmer and more positive generally and believe it's her skill, ability and approach that has guided me towards the best version of myself. As well as this, she is generally the most positive and motivational person I have ever met and spending even an hour with her it rubs off. I can't recommend her enough. Thank you Judi - can't wait for my next session.
Janine Goodison, Business Portfolio Manager
I contacted Judi to enquire about having hypnotherapy sessions to help me to understand and overcome my fear of flying. Judi spent a long time getting to know me and my fears. We had really interesting conversations before the hypnotherapy about anxiety and how the brain worked. This helped me to learn to accept my feelings, and to move beyond these to become a calmer, more positive me. I was at ease with Judi the first time I met her. Something just clicked. On Saturday 2nd Feb 2019 I got on my first flight for 20 years. That means more to me than just being able to travel it means I beat the voice in my head which told me I couldn't do things. That's a big win for me and I couldn't have done it without Judi. I highly recommend Judi to anyone with similar issues. The world is for living and not fearing!
