“Dear Steven, It has been a delightful experience to work with you. Your conversations are inspiring, insightful, filled with humour and so comforting. You have helped me with practical tools to address everyday challenges, both minor and  major, one of the most impressive things you taught me was about how to break chains of  negative thought, starting from the present and moving further into the future, completely letting go of the baggage of the past.

You shared interesting ideas about the mind body connection, relaxing, breaking free of self professed rules, making new ones and allowing the discovery of uncharted territory! The most unusual and unique element is how easily you help to take conscious thoughts and desire into the unconscious mind for it to work on the issues automatically.

Dr ShwetaI feel so relieved, inspired and equipped with new tools in my toolkit to address life issues and ensure I make the best of relationships. I have learned so much from you, You truly are a skilled professional.”

Dr Shweta Jacob

MD(G.Med), MRCGP, DRCOG, DFFP

“Since i met Steven 4 months ago he has helped me greatly with various health issues I’ve been battling with. I was still in recovery from Hepatitis C and he has helped me a lot. My immune system was very low and my metabolism felt very sluggish. One of the first hypnotherapy sessions he did with me was to boost my metabolism which I feel has really helped my energy levels. He has helped me with asthma and allergies, and also recurring bad memories from a negative relationship. He has also helped me deal with major and minor aches and pains. He keeps up with the leading research on health and makes brilliant connections for himself which takes his work further. I’ve also watched him work with others and seen wonderful sustained results. I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone for any health issue. Aline MacInnes – Counsellor and Holistic Therapist.

“Steven visited me at home and spent an hour and a half with me. I found him to be intelligent, articulate, professional and above all informative. He is well read, educated and qualified to explain and advise. What I found to be immensely important for me was his ability to get inside my head and to address the negativity and low self esteem I have suffered from all my adult life.” Heather Bowdidge

“It’s hard to remember what happens in a session with Steven because the work is very complete and the urge is to just move on without the problem, and I have. What I do remember is that Steven’s presence was kind and thoughtful and I felt it very easy to be totally honest with him. His obvious skill at finding resolutions to difficult states of mind made it very easy to trust the process he guided me through.” Carol Rudd –Psychotherapist and Author

“Following a serious illness I managed to make a full physical recovery but mentally I was left in a terrible state. I was fully convinced that what had occurred would happen again and it would kill me this time. On a daily basis I would suffer panic attacks that the illness was back and over the years the problem got worse, not better, and it had a huge negative influence over all aspects of my life. I then had the good fortune to meet Steven Blake who has changed everything. Through working with Steven I have now lost this major fear and he has given me back my peace of mind. This has changed my life in so many positive ways. He is wholly responsible for this transformation in my life. If you are reading this then you probably have a problem that you are thinking of seeing Steven about. I urge you to take the next step and get the help which he can provide. My life would be very different today without his help. I cannot speak highly enough of him – genuine and kind – and his very professional service. I fully believe that he can help anyone with any problem – you just need to make the appointment to initiate positive changes in your life.” – Sarah Coyne

Nomination for Radio 4 All in the mind awards: “I am nominating Steven Blake as I had been struggling with weight loss, harassment and bullying in the workplace and most importantly I was told I would never have children with my partner, so you will understand I had to seek assistance, guidance – something that would make me feel human again. I was living in Lincolnshire when I met Steven, he promised me a different way of losing weight, an approach to face my bullies in work, but the icing on the cake was when he spent just 20 minutes meditating with me to think positive thoughts of conceiving, naturally I had tried everything, and I thought why the hell not, what have I got to lose? A week later my husband arrived back from Afghanistan, thin and withdrawn with the news of not being able to have children, so we packed our suitcases and went away to Wales for the week, we came back refreshed to discover I was pregnant. We now have a beautiful, noisy 15 month daughter called Daisy and I believe through Steven’s positivity, helping me to lose a stone and a half, to deal with the bullies in work, I achieved and proved the doctors wrong. Steven not only helped me conquer my bullies, but he taught me key life values and I sincerely believe I’m a better person mentally, I’m stronger mentally and I see life quite differently, he went above and beyond in my opinion offering not only his ears but his scales out of office hours. To me, not every person is willing to give precious time up for anyone, it takes a great person to offer those qualities.” Anna Cooper.

You’re a bloody Genius I say. Will let u know more in another 2 weeks.” ” I knew you was working – it went unnoticed 2 the other party. would certainly recommend you.” A.W. (following a conversation I had with her partner who unknowingly had a “treatment”from me for stress related health issues)

“I would like to congratulate you on successfully stopping my hot flushes. As you know I was very sceptical that this was at all possible. Prior to visiting you I averaged about 7 hot flushes a day that were intense, distressing and really debilitating. In the two months since I came to you I have not had a hot flush and on only 3 instances started to feel one coming on and used the off switch you taught me to stop it in its tracks. You are a true professional and your calm manner and thoughtfulness enabled the process to be pleasant as well as very effective. Thank you once again for giving me my life back.” Sarah G….. Sleaford

“Steven, I saw your presentation on escaping chronic fatigue and pain and it was a well informed, well presented and provided real insight as to how it may be possible to achieve outstanding results. The case study you gave was remarkable, and indeed the other examples provided food for thought. Having seen you work with clients, and interact with others in social and training situations I for one would certainly vouch for your skills 100%. It’s a pity that there are some who still hold onto old beliefs, and cannot allow the possibilities to develop in relation to giving relief to chronic pain sufferers. Keep up the good work, and don’t be put off by the “doubting Thomas” brigade.” Steve Adams

Steven, if I can help one person come to you and it helps their life the way you have mine then I want to share this testimonial of my experience. I have known Steven for three years and, in that time, he has proved to be proficient, effective and very sincere in all he does. Recently I have had cause and found the inward courage to undergo a time line session, with Steven as my guide. I had originally gone for help with weight loss and Steven had observed issues I presented, he thought best dealt with first. The outcome from this session was mind blowing. What Steven does is to give you the belief and courage so YOU find the reasons for yourself. My word, he certainly did that with me. I was sceptical, but not a closed door to the whole idea. We started on the timeline after some initial quite unobtrusive questioning and general relaxation and I was not prepared – at all (I did feel, as I am sure most people would, very self conscious and aware I was out of my comfort zone – but again, Steven’s mannerism and calm aura certainly impact on all that). He appreciates a person feels they may look silly standing in a room and doing relaxation exercises….. but he does make you soon feel at ease so don’t be put off, its very liberating and great for self confidence! So, I am walking down my time line and suddenly, genuinely, I felt an impact in my life (at age 5 or 6)…… and I could not move. I tried. I was rooted. It was then obvious to me (not just blatantly apparent to Steven) that this needed dealing with. Steven talked me through how to deal with myself at 5 as a now adult in my late thirties. So I today was talking to myself then. WOW. So powerful. So emotional, overwhelming and my God, all the things I had previously struggled with and had a stutter over on the initial time line preparation had vanished. That SINGLE change of mindset at something perceived as a 5 year old that, to be honest as an adult I wouldn’t react to, or indeed, if I did, I would now have the sarcasm to throw it back with the humour it was originally meant. In my session with Steven’s guidance, I dealt with this by my adult self holding, reassuring and reasoning with my 5 year old self and hearing her views on it and feelings from a single comment – this has changed the way I deal with things already! I felt tears streaming down my face, a reaction to this whole event BUT it was the tears from the 5 year old me running down my adult face. Tears to my adult self for reacting that way and seeing now that it was silly and that the 5 year old me was crying because her misreading of the “then” comment had framed and impacted so heavily on the rest of my life between then and now. It was truly inspirational although incredibly moving and certainly evoked powerful emotions from myself now and at age 5….. Steven is fantastic. He is sincere. He is reliable. He talks, he doesn’t judge. But moreover, he listens. He reasons. He does not criticise, belittle, doubt or patronise. He is genuine and, although you will leave his session thinking, a lot…..you will leave his session positive, self believing and ready to embark on a journey either alone or with Steven to combat the issue you had before you walked through his door.”

“A second session I had with Steven, this time for hypnosis and focussing on the weight issue. I had never been hypnotised before and was very unsure and nervous even though I trust Steven completely. I needn’t have worried, as usual he put me totally at ease and explained the process thoroughly and we went ahead. Yes, I fought the hypnosis, not to be awkward, but I think anyone would for the initial session if it is an “unknown” situation to be in. But I still found myself going under due to the way Steven delivers the verbal communication, the tone, the safety and the general overall feeling of confidence and invitation to accept the help he offers through this process. All those things in conjunction with my asking for his help, made me realise I should give-it-a-go and relax!!! The images my mind produced were – unexpected. The background was red, the colour of eye lids when your eyes are closed….I wasn’t alarmed by this, then as Steven asked me to put my fears about being slim in a box and assured me someone would come now and take them away……(individual details removed)…. This was my unconscious mind protesting very clearly at the removal of my “stay fat safety blanket” that I have carried for far too long. If I am fat then the issues that I had when I was slim wouldn’t happen again…..this putting them in a box to be taken away was obviously too much for my unconscious to deal with. But blimey – how powerful and WE dealt with it. Steven didn’t put images in my head or thoughts or reactions. He just said we would take away the reason, the smoke screen, the worry.…..but having had that for twenty years now is a hard façade to let go of, a scary place to face with no wall, no barrier, no security blanket. Letting go is hard. But realising you can and it really is ok to let it go and then possessing the liberty of understanding is literally like unlocking a previously bolted door and watching the once shaded lawn be flooded with warm sunshine. – Client wishes to remain anonymous due to the personal nature of details given.

The Thought CoachNote from Steven Blake: These testimonials reflect only a few of my clients, most of whom had suppressed deep traumas and therefore it would have been insensitive to expect written feedback about things they have only just come to terms with. The therapeutic methods I use tend to work at the unconscious level and often reduce or remove the conscious aspects as they are no longer needed. Most client’s have difficulty in remembering what they originally came for, which in its self is a testimonial of it having worked. You may notice that I am the choice of doctors and many other health professionals seeking self help, in fact I deliberately seek out and welcome those who feel that other forms of therapy or therapists have not worked for them!
