What my clients say

Epson, surrey Hypnotherapy - Maria Furtek

Client Hypnotherapy & NLP  Testimonials – I appreciate getting feedback from clients past and present, here’s what some of them have to say about how working with me on their issues has helped them:


“I used Maria’s service at a time when I was going through lots of highs in my professional life and lows in my personal life.  My business was growing giving me more opportunities and visibility, which was great, but it also gave the feeling of more pressure.  In my personal life I was dealing with a double bereavement and at the time an unexplained illness, which bought on a lot of anxiety. Maria was a tremendous help during this time and I really benefited from my sessions with her, she taught and gave me tools to deal with any anxiety I had for the different situations I would find myself in professionally and also on personal level it was invaluable to have such an amazing service to help me through it.

Maria is brilliant at what she does and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her services to anyone I know.  Thank you for all your help Maria” (BD Female Business Owner Surrey).

Anxiety June 2016

The techniques that Maria taught me and what she did with me in our sessions, really helped me to relax and focus positively; she helped me to understand my anxiety and deal with it. As a result of seeing Maria, I now feel in a better place emotionally to move forward with my life. In one of the final sessions with Maria, we revisited the past in a way that enabled me to change what was a dark and unhappy memory and transform this internally, so that I was able to process my past experience in a safe and appropriate way”. Lisa H

Fear of Heights August 2015

AJ came to see me with a fear of heights in the Summer of 2015. He wanted to overcome this fear and had a goal of one day being able to do a skydive. Well after 5 sessions, and with his permission to share these, he raised £1600 for charity and did his skydive in August 2015 – these are his photos and words about what he has been able to achieve: “With help from you, there was no chance I’d not succeed 🙂 Thank you so much again. Pics to prove!”

Anxiety & Lack of Confidence September 2015

Maria helped me to come to terms with lots of things that had happened in my life. She gave me the tools to manage myself and my life better. I trusted Maria to maintain my confidentiality and she was very professional, whilst at the same time putting me at ease and making me feel totally comfortable. I never had the sense of Maria watching the clock and I always felt in the sessions that there was the time I needed to deal with my issues. She really has helped me to see things in their true perspective again. Juliet M

Flying Phobia August 2015

Just returned from our trip to Florida – so happy that I managed to get there and back!

I would never have believed that I’d be able to sit on a plane for 9 hours, but it really was ok. My family remarked how calm I seemed to be – I think they were quite surprised! Both flights were smooth and the time seemed to pass reasonably quickly. The holiday was very, very good and I am delighted that the girls have finally experienced Florida after dreaming of it for so long.

The recording you gave me last time is fantastic. Even when I was walking through Gatwick on the way out, parts of it were playing in my head and it helped me to relax and even eat and do some shopping! Thank you so very much for all of your help and advice. Coral C

 Anxiety August 2015

The sessions with Maria were really good and so helpful. They have given me ways to lessen the anxiety and to feel better about myself. Maria has made me feel really comfortable and I feel excited and hopeful about the future now. Natalie C

 Flying Phobia July 2015

With lots of thanks to you for helping me take back control, the flight both there and back was much. much better. I found that relaxing by cutting out the environment around me with music, closing my eyes and thinking of other positive thoughts and tapping my hand, rather than gripping the seat in front, got me through take-off and I found that I relaxed a soon as we levelled out and was able to enjoy the remainder of the flight (just like the old days). The outward experience made the return much easier so hopefully each time I fly it will become even easier. So much so we have booked a couple more trips, which I certainly would have found very difficult without your assistance. Mr S.

Flying Phobia June 2015

It all came to the final straw when I could not get on the plane to Florida for my family holiday, which left the kids disappointed and upset. This prompted me to come and see you. Thanks to our sessions I have been able to fly to Scotland, Lanzarote and did a 6 hour flight more recently. I feel so much more relaxed and confident about flying now, that we have rebooked our holiday to Florida for August and I am confident that this time I will be able to get on the flight and use the techniques you have taught me to relax and control my anxiety. Myself and my family cannot thank you enough for enabling this trip to go ahead. Coral.

Nail Biting January 2015


I stopped biting my nails with Maria Furtek Hypnotherapy

The sessions were really useful and worked. Each one has been a different experience. Repeat sessions ( I had 4 in total) have re-inforced the changes. Maria gave good practical advise as well as the Hypnotherapy and NLP. I enclose a photo of my new nails, now I have stopped biting them.     Daniel

Smoking January 2015

As soon as I finished the first session I stopped smoking and did not feel the need for a cigarette. The second session really re-inforced what I needed to ensure I remain a non -smoker. I would highly recommend Maria. She made me feel totally at ease in our sessions.   Zoe

Anxiety & Stress October 2014

Maria is extremely accomplished in so many different techniques and strategies as well as Hypnotherapy. She has ll these skills and practices at her fingertips so can use them to best effect on whatever your issue is and to deal with whatever comes out of the hypnotherapy process. She is more advanced than other practitioners I have been too and was able to offer a service that individually met my issues and needs. She also has a fantastically relaxing chair in which the hypnotherapy takes place, which I miss! Nicci B

    Anxiety & Panic attacks
    I was really frightened, panicky and confused by my anxiety and felt hopeless as I didn’t know if I could stop it. I thought nobody would be able to help me and I felt so alone because of it. Maria helped me to hope again, and made me feel not alone. I now feel really calm and collected. I have had a lot of really useful insights from the sessions and the techniques Maria taught me will go with me for the rest of my life. I would recommend Maria. Maria will give you the tools to cope with your anxiety and you will discover things about yourself that you never would have known. –

    Weight Loss
    I was distressed because I really had an all or nothing eating pattern. I was always on a diet and could lose the weight with effort, but then would not be able to maintain it and would put it all back on again. I now feel good, calm and not anxious about my eating anymore. My eating is now more under control and I no longer have to eat everything in sight. I eat healthier and do not constantly think about food anymore. I am quite a cynical person, but the hypnotherapy and NLP coaching sessions with Maria have really worked. It’s amazing!

  • Gill W (Education Specialist)

    Fear of heights/Fear of driving
    I went to see Maria because I had a fear of heights and fear of driving which was affecting my day to day life and my career. The sessions were very relaxing and I felt listened to and I felt that Maria really understand my issues which helped me engage in the sessions fully. I now feel much more confident about facing unexpected situations which previously would have been problematic and I have a much better awareness of why these situations have been difficult for me. I am now beginning to enjoy facing up to the situations which I previously feared. I would urge people to try out the sessions with Maria. She doesn’t pressurise you in to doing anything that you would feel uncomfortable about.

  • Alison B (Housewife)

    Fear of Heights
    I have had a fear of heights for as long as I can remember. After the sessions with Maria, I am amazed to find that my fear of heights has gone! I have now travelled on steep escalators, in cable carts, and stood on the edge of a mountain looking down to the ground below. I am amazed and so is my husband who is delighted with the new me!

  • Jasmine G (age 14 school student)

    Fear of Dogs
    My fear of dogs was stopping me from going out with my friends and was becoming a real problem. After seeing Maria, I am now confident to go out and not feel bothered by dogs and generally feel confident around animals now. I have even taken my cousin’s dog out for a walk. Maria helped me a lot and I recommend her.

  • Marcus T (Corporate Communications Director)

    Work related Coaching
    Since meeting Maria and taking on NLP my life has most certainly improved. I am happier, a far more positive confident person. So it has been life changing. I would recommend Maria to anyone who wants to enhance their life, performance and happiness and wish her every success! She deserves it.
