Nail Biting

Hello Annie,  I know its been a while since you helped me with my nail biting. Here is an update 😊

Things are going amazingly! My nails are pretty and strong and represent how I feel. I no longer feel self conscious about them, I don’t hide them any more, i actually have been getting many compliments about how pretty my nails are.

I no longer have the urge to bite them, my whole mindset has changed and I really feel in control of my life and that has transferred to other areas. I have managed to land a great government job in these crazy times and my relationship is going well so my beautiful nails are icing on the cake.

Thank you for all your help.

This letter is in reference to Bathurst Hypnotherapy.

I have been seeing Annie at Bathurst Hypnotherapy for my alcoholism for 6 months (15 visits).
I have had a drinking problem most of my adult life (I’m 54) have tried lots of things – rehab, AA etc without much success.
I’m over 6 months sober now and feel very optimistic about the future.
I would totally recommend Annie’s services to anyone with an addiction.

Quit Smoking

Hey Annie,

I have been a smoker for 30 years and I loved smoking! But for my health I had to give up.  I wasn’t that hopeful of being successful but after some sessions with Annie I am smoke free.  The time I spent with Annie was well and truly worth it and I would highly recommend her services.

Weight Loss

Hi Annie

Thanks so much for you continued support

I had been overweight and for quiet a long period of my life.  Over the year I have tried many different ways of losing weight, but as soon as I stopped whatever weight loss process I was doing I regained the weight I had lost plus put on even more. During these processes I always experienced hunger, deprivation etc.

Earlier this year I started researching alternative ways of losing weight and cam across hypnotherapy, I had heard of it before but never researched it.  I looked at quite a few different websites and found Annie’s to be very easy to navigate, informative and professional. On Friday 1st March 2019 I first contacted Annie and arranged an appointment for her free ½ hour consultation.  I felt very much at ease talking to Annie and decided to go ahead with the Slender Eating Programme.  Annie has been so very professional, compassionate and caringly supportive all along my journey with this.  I have been able to consistently lose weight since the first therapy session in a way I have never done before.  I am never hungry, don’t worry about meals (food) in that there is no special preparation or shopping, it is just a natural part of my day.  I don’t deny myself as my mind set has altered entirely around food.  I don’t even feel guilty about little indulgences, so easy to do in moderation now.  Thank you so much Annie, only wish I had found you years ago, but no looking back now just looking forward to better health and new and smaller size clothes.

Thanks so much Annie.

To fellow sufferers,

Almost 5 months ago my Tinnitus went from zero to unbearable ‘ringing’!  It almost drove me crazy, so much that I sought help from my Doctor and Orange Hospital.  I even contacted the mental Health Service.  All these people gave me welcome relief – I was no longer alone.

Then I contacted Annie, the Hypnotherapist in Bathurst.  This was the turning point in my recovery.  Annie didn’t cure my Tinnitus, but she saw how bad was my anxiety, anger and depression.  She advised me to get a book about Tinnitus written by Jules Cowan.  That’s when I began my therapy.  I began daily exercises.  Last week, my third session with Annie ended.

I have now risen from Level 1 to level 5.  With her help, I am now fully confident, no more anxiety.  I now accept Tinnitus and have become so confident that I hardly notice it.  I live a normal life, still do exercises.  I can at last have relief that I no longer have fear of Tinnitus.

Do not try and fight it alone, get help and realise you are ‘not alone’.

My decision to ask Annie for help was the best thing I did.  She gave the help and confidence to overcome this awful soul destroying illness.

Thank you ‘Annie’.

Quit Smoking

I’d been smoking for 30 years and in the last 10 years I had tried everything to quit smoking patches, gum, mouth sprays champix the lot.  None of these were successful for me.  My sister-in-law recommended I try hypnotherapy and I thought . . .  why not. . .   I’ve tried everything else.   It was the best decision I’ve ever made.

The Quit Smoking programme with Annie was so well rounded and covered a lot of bases.  The course is tailored to you personally. Because of this it filled in all the gaps of information that had been missing in my previous attempts and explained how smoking governed my life and how I could make it stop easily.

Annie gives you lots of tips for the days after you’ve quit and also offers ongoing support.  I felt like the day I quit I wasn’t stepping off a cliff just stepping off a curb.  I highly recommend you try the Quit Smoking programme with Annie.

Emotional Blocks / Feeling stuck

Hi Annie,

Thank you so much for your time with me – helping me and giving me a better life & outlook.  I’m still feeling good!  Still keeping on track – I am starting to be able to put my normal clothes on and most of them are fitting again!

A little bit about my experience:

I had never done hypnotherapy before.  I was very curious, but also what really brought me to seek it out, was my feelings of desperation and being ready to make a change.

Throughout the previous year, I particularly saw a decline in my mental health.  Having a lot of changes, such as moving, having a breakup and the stressors of Uni, I had fallen out of my usual routines that had previously kept me quite fit and healthy.  I had begun more and more to turn to compulsive food eating patterns and found myself sinking more and more into depression.  It seemed no matter how hard I tried and how rational I was about what I needed to do, it seemed I just couldn’t get my head above water!   Finally after many months of feeling drained, tired, lethargic and like giving up – and having tried all kinds of things – I looked online and found Annie’s website.  I read some testimonials and a bit about what hypnotherapy could do.  I was ready to give it a go and really wanted relief.

Immediately after meeting Annie, I felt comfortable to speak to her about anything, and really was able to figure out what I was there for, what my goals were and we had a plan of how to get there.

Each session she took me through the process and let me know what to expect.  She has a very easy going facilitation and everything was quite clear. There was a sense of relief after each session, not to mention feeling very relaxed.  I can say, hypnotherapy is a very good way to be able to revisit past situations, learn from them and release any negative feelings – all the while being very relaxed and not re-living any trauma.  This was very different from “regular” talking therapy sessions which I had been to in the past.  I found that there were many events and ideas that I had been holding onto even though I did not realise it.  And hypnotherapy gave me a way to easily find these, and let them go.

Throughout the 6 weeks, the changes were gradual, but in the end very noticeable.  I was much more confident, happier, my thoughts were positive, my energy was high.  I was back into my fit and healthy ways.  I was able to stick to my eating plan and keep myself on track.  I found myself less overwhelmed and more open to new opportunities.

The mind is an amazing place – and it is capable of whatever you can dream.

Annie is so passionate about helping people and is invested to making a difference in people’s lives.  She really has a desire to help others succeed and she knows how to do it!

I highly recommend seeing Annie, and trying hypnosis in her very comfy chair.  For whatever goals you might have, she is sure to help you reach them.  🙂

Nail Picking

I’ve been to see Annie to help me with a habit that I had for nail picking.  I saw Annie three times and in that time I’ve seen amazing results.  Not only have I stopped picking my nails but I’ve become calmer and gentler in my personality and in my working environment.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Annie for helping you in any way.

Self Esteem/beliefs

My experiences with the treatment I received from Annie made a huge difference in my fundamental self belief. From an early age I had certain ideas that led me to think I wasn’t good enough. If you looked at my life superficially you would wonder why. The hypnotherapy was both calming and challenging. It helped me to look at my long held beliefs from different perspectives. My absolute favourite saying that Annie taught me was “there is no ‘I’ll try’, you either do it or you don’t”. The meaning here is that to say “I’ll try” gives you an out. Take control and commit to your goals. Annie is also warm and welcoming, she makes you feel hopeful and that things will improve.

Mysterious illness

I came to Annie after several years of having a mysterious illness that many medical professionals could not figure out. They had ruled out anything physically wrong so they then moved onto the mental side of it. They believed I had a conditioned response to the illness and needed to change my thinking.After just 3 sessions with Annie I had an unbelievable response to her methods. She takes you through step by step and lays it out in an easy to understand way.

I knew the mind was a powerful tool but after experiencing everything I went through, it has really taught me that the mind is the most important thing to have control of.

Annie has changed my outlook now and really surprised me at how effective her methods are.

I would absolutely recommend Annie to anyone who is struggling with a bad mental habit.

Weight Loss – Virtual Gastric Band

How I started my hypnosis with Annie Walker, a friend told me about her so I rang her up and went on the 17.7.2015. It was my first visit and it has changed my life in my appearance and my overall way of thinking and eating. I have lost 4 dress sizes and love to exercise now.

After that very first session with Annie, I went to my Doctor and found that my blood pressure was already down and haven’t had high blood pressure since. My doctor is stoked about the result.

I recommend Annie to whoever wants help with life in whatever you need as I know that I can go back whenever I feel the need to and she is only a phone call away.

Thank you to Bathurst Hypnotherapy, Annie Walker.

Hi Annie

Happy New Year!  and hope you are well 🙂

Just thought I’d let you know my good news …. yes 2015 has got off to a good start for me ….. I have finally achieved my target weight of 52 kg – so a loss down from about 64.7 I think it was before at my heaviest in 2014!  (I am exercising plenty and my husband has noticed I’m not wolfing down the chocolate as I did in the old days ha!)

So yippee here!   I had the joys of going to Junna on Howick St today to have some clothes taken in (notably a couple of lovely ball dresses I have from about 20 years ago) — no going back as I can’t add material later.  Looking forward to trying my wedding dress on again later – as I am now at the weight I was in Sept 2013.

So last and certainly not least … a big thank you ! 🙂

Weight Loss – Natural Slender Eating Program

Hi Annie  

I hope you are well.  Please see below:   I had struggled with my weight for years.  I didn’t have much to lose, only 5 kilos.  But this 5 kilos seemed to like me – very much.  I would lose 2 kilos, then put it back on.  I had absolutely no will power.  I would be good for a maximum of 2 days but that was it.   I had been starting a “health programme” (didn’t want to mention the diet word) every Monday for the last 10+ years.  As a last resort, I looked up Bathurst Hypnotherapy on the web and after talking to Annie, I was pumped!   After only one session, my clothes were looser and I had no desire to even look at biscuits or chocolate and I have not looked back.   I could not have done this without Annie’s help.  She is honestly one of the nicest people I think I’ve ever met.  She is warm, funny, genuine and is EXCELLENT at her work!  I highly recommend her.  I am making better food choices and I am now wearing clothes I never thought I would fit into again.   Sure I eat “naughty things” when I feel like them, BUT I now know when to stop which I could not do before seeing Annie.   I thank you from the bottom of my heart.    Annie, you can use my name if you want and if people want to call me direct, I don’t have a problem with that.  

Take care now.   Best regards,

Donna (Mudgee – Sept 2014)


Confidence/Self Esteem/Relationships

I had hit rock bottom in both my personal and professional life. With a tiny baby and moving on from what was an abusive relationship I found my self questioning what was right from wrong and ultimately who was I?   Finding peace, grounding and motivation came soon after having had only three sessions with Annie, who worked patiently and methodically with me. I found her service and approach incredibly, calming, nurturing and uplifting. I am now embarking on a journey which I could not even imagine would have been possible 6 months ago.  Annie had successfully aided my own ability to shed back layers and heal myself. Not matter the issue, Annie can adapt her abilities and tailor it to your very own individual requests. I now take the tools she taught me into my every day practices.

Annie’s service was life changing, A true mover and a shaker, don’t wait. Life is short. Regards,

Nail Biting

Since before I can remember I have been a nail biter.

The habit has caused me severe embarrassment as I continually tried to hide my nails. I had tried all manner of methods to stop but always returned to nibbling them.

I had four sessions of hypnotherapy with Annie Walker of Bathurst Hypnotherapy and the results are amazing!!

I stopped biting after the first session. My nails are looking terrific now and I’m taking really good care of them. I am not struggling at all to stop biting them.

I can foresee this as a permanent fix. I don’t want to and don’t feel like biting my nails at all. I am very grateful for the help I received from Annie, but really kicking myself that I didn’t try hypnotherapy years ago.

Quit Smoking

Before I meet Annie I had been smoking for 14 years & suffered from Anxiety & Depression. To tell you the truth the thought of Hypnosis sound very silly to me & the only reason it had crossed my sceptical mind to start with was because I felt I had tried every other option and it was my last desperate hope to escape the dark side I felt I was stuck in.

Extremely sceptical & feeling very silly I finely made the call.  Annie & I had spent over an hour on the phone to each other, I think you’ll agree with me when I say most of the time when you are on the phone to business’s you can feel they just want to take your money & get rid of you as quickly as possible, put you on hold or pass you on to some one else.  Not Annie she really did take the time to try understand me as an individual over the phone. (when she should have been having dinner).

In the time I had been on the phone with her my scepticism had backed right off, she had really changed my way of thinking not only about smoking but my whole way of life. I remember thinking how great I felt after I’d hung up the phone.  A week later the day had come & my thoughts of what the hell had I got myself into had returned.

Annie & I had finally meet, I was a little scared & nervous about what this session was going to consist of, but let me assure all you sceptical people out there, not only did I walk out of that session feeling like I could do anything if I put my mind to it, but I still have that exact feeling’s today.

I now tackle life with a whole new attitude everything seems to make more sense then it ever has & guess what I’m still not smoking as well!          I could sit here all day and describe how the help of Annie & Hypnosis has worked for me, but I highly recommend you see for your self guarantee you, you will walk away with some sort of positive change in the way you see things or think things in any aspect of life.

I can not thank you enough Annie.

Many Thanks,

Amanda (Bathurst – 2015)
