I cannot claim to understand in depth the techniques employed by Caroline Lucas. I can only sincerely testify that they worked for me.
Briefly, the sudden onset of a potentially serious illness realised my worst fears – admission to hospital and serious surgery. “Petrified” would not be an over statement and after only three sessions with Caroline, my anxiety levels dropped to the normal apprehension felt, I expect, by almost everybody. This turned a lengthy operation and a seven day hospital incarceration into a very positive experience. Further more the approach taught and the resulting attitude has stayed with me. Many thanks Caroline.
