We have thought long and hard about including client recommendations; after all, anyone can write a recommendation and how are you to know if it is genuine? How do you protect client confidentiality if you are using their names, etc?
At HMH Therapy we have taken steps to prove that our recommendations are written by real clients. Therefore, you may view the recommendations at the clinic, many of which are hand-written, and those of which were sent by e-mail we can provide evidence of the e-mail trail. All clients quoted have given their consent to allow their recommendations to appear on the website and we have further protected confidentiality by using only client initials and locations. The date of the recommendation is also included so you can see how recently it has been added and can therefore judge for yourself how current these recommendations are.
Dear Heather,What can i say WOW. I brought my 9 year old son to you as he was diagnosed with anxiety and OCD. After a couple of sessions i have seen a massive difference in J. He panics less at school and doesn't cry when it comes to doing number work. He rearranges things less and has stopped washing his hands constantly they've managed to clear up, and all bad thoughts from his head are gone. Its like you have waved a magic wand. Jay has become more confident and now has a can do attitude rather than giving up at the first hurdle. His class teachers particularly learning support have seen a massive difference. J will now happily sit and do math's without any worry or anxiety. I cant thank you enough. I would highly recommend you to anyone. You have made my little boy so happy and he says he feels a lot better. He says you are a very nice lady and funny. He wishes all children that have anxiety and OCD would come to you then they will be happy and calm. J continues to listen to his cd every night. Thanks again.

I have suffered from severe claustrophobia for years. I was unable to use a lift and since I also suffer from sciatica, had always to request a ground floor room when I go on holiday. I booked a course of treatment with Heather when I could, I had to go for an MRI scan. The results were amazing. I managed the MRI scan and used the lifts on holiday. I have also used lifts since coming home. This is a huge achievement for me. Heather is so friendly and caring and I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
CM of Livingston September 3, 2018
"I have enjoyed the course very much and will miss our monthly learning sessions. I found the training, the pace, the approach and your relaxed style of training conducive to our learning. You are very professional, extremely knowledgeable and so practical in your approach. Every weekend was delivered in an organised and informative manner with practical exercises and with the demonstration of your experience and skills apparent. You certainly have set the benchmark for us all. I only hope that I become as good a hypnotherapist as you one day.
Thank you for all your input, delivery, support, student counselling and coaching. You are a natural trainer and supervision counsellor. I wish you continued success in your training academy as the standard you deliver is extremely high".
ST of Falkirk July 26, 2018
"I am very happy with the course and am delighted that I have now achieved the qualification
which will enable me to use hypnotherapy.
The course is well structured and delivered to a very high standard.
I found all the subjects and content very interesting, engaging and all very
applicable to helping people as a qualified hypnotherapist.
I am looking forward to my career in hypnotherapy and believe I am equipped
with all the necessary skills and knowledge in order to be as successful as possible.
I would highly recommend the course to anyone interested in practicing hypnotherapy
- it's a whole new, fascinating world. "
SK of Aberdeen July 26, 2018
"I have recently completed the ten month Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma with the UK Academy training school and can testify that if you are considering completing your HPD that you need look no further. The course has a good mix of practical and theory, with the students learning how to practice hypnosis from day one. The training content is well put together, and is carried out in a professional manner. Marketing strategies for new hypnotherapists were taught as part of the course, and NLP is covered in the last two months of the course. I would say that the UK Academies training course leaves their students well equipped to go on and have a successful career as a clinical hypnotherapist".
DF of Ayr July 26, 2018
I have suffered from chronic fatigue for 17yrs, I saw advert for hypnotherapy & thought I would give it a try, so glad I did! Heather is a very friendly lady who put me at ease straight away. I am having much more restful sleeps which helps with my energy levels. Would defo recommend her.
RJ of Reddingmuirhead Clinical Hypnotherapy on 5th December 2017 December 6, 2017
Hypnotherapy has completely altered the way I think and feel about things. I am so much calmer and relaxed that I ever used to be and I'm much happier. I would definitely recommend Heather. I came to see Heather about how I was feeling about driving and I'm so much more confident and "getting out there and doing it".
EE of Brightons Clinical Hypnotherapy on 22nd November 2017 November 22, 2017
I would just like to thank you for all your recent help with my 12 year olds anxiety issue. You made a difference after the very first session allowing him to attend school free from the anxiety he was experiencing and continue with his sport in a relaxed manner. Further sessions reinforced his relaxed mood and we would not hesitate to use your services again.
GMcG of Coatbridge Clinical Hypnotherapy on 16th November 2017 November 16, 2017
I thought I'd drop you a message to let you know that I managed to go on the hulk ride twice and the rock n roller coaster! Both rides are ones I have avoided in recent years and along with these, I have managed to go on other rides I hadn't for years!
Thank you for your help! I honestly didn't think I would have been able to do it but I'm glad I did!
MH of Livingston Clinical Hypnotherapy on 3rd July 2017 July 18, 2017
I visited Heather when I realised that I had slowly become addicted to fizzy drinks and wanted, for health reasons, to give these up. Not only have I now given these up, I feel healthier and have so much more freedom in my mind to think about other things. I've struggled for years to give these up and feel great now I have. Many thanks to Heather!
LK of Falkirk Clinical Hypnotherapy on 7th June 2017 June 7, 2017
I was desperate for something other than medication to help with my anxiety. I had been seeing a cognitive behavioural therapist and felt like she had done all she could to help me but I was still very very anxious.
I have had 4 sessions with Heather and can say I'm in a completely different place to when I first came in. I've went from being highly anxious all day everyday to a couple of panic attacks before going to a function which I was able to control and have a great time at the function.
I feel totally different and a lot happier.
R Mck of Maddiston Clinical Hypnotherapy on 5th June 2017 June 5, 2017
If you are looking to do a Diploma in Clinical and Advanced Hypnosis then I would recommend the course run by the UK Academy Scotland. The course combines theory and plenty of opportunity to practice. Heather who runs a successful hypnotherapy practice uses her knowledge and experience to bring the course to life. She gives lots of great nuggets of information to give her students the knowledge, skills and confidence to practice hypnotherapy safely, ethically and successfully.
SG of Falkirk May 8, 2017
Excellent service, deffo recommend. I have lost well over a stone in a short space of time. Also it has changed my eating habits since I had the Hypnoband fitted.
BMcD of Falkirk Hypnoband on 13 Mar 2017 March 13, 2017
Heather is a friendly person and puts you at ease from start. I did the hypnoband weight loss programme and I have currently lost 1st 4lbs in 9 weeks. I highly recommend Heather as a hypnotherapist. She gave me the motivation to achieve this and I know I can continue to achieve my target weight. She is very professional.
SD of Falkirk Hypnoband on 8 Mar 2017 March 8, 2017
I came to see Heather two years ago to stop smoking. The stopping smoking session was quick, relaxing and pleasant. I smoked my last cigarette before that session and I haven’t smoked since. That was 2 years ago! I’d strongly recommend HMH Therapy.
HMacL of Falkirk Smoking Cessation on 8 Jun 2015 June 8, 2015
Dear Heather, what you did for me changed my life forever. I′ve found a different me. I′m stronger, fitter and healthier physically and mentally. I have drive and determination I didn’t know I would have. Since meeting you I have lost 7 stones in weight. 7 stones! I have battled with my weight for 20 years and the fight between me and food is over. Food tastes better now. I eat a very healthy diet. I have never gone hungry. I know that people see a change in me, and from our very first appointment my mindset about food changed. I no longer waste food inside my body that my body didn′t need. I went on an aeroplane in December and didn′t need a seat belt extension! And used the table for the first time! I′m horse riding again. I never thought THAT would happen! I can go on all the rides at the fun fair! I′ve booked a sky dive! I′m going to do a shark dive at Deep Sea World too I hope – and all of these things were impossible dreams before. My life motto now is “go hard or go home”, I′m taking life by the hand and giving it PROPER GUTS. I am NO LONGER A BYSTANDER. Thank you Heather, for everything.
CL of Falkirk Hypnoband on 5 Jun 2015 June 5, 2015
When I first came to see Heather, I was overthinking and stressing over every little thing. Things that didn’t even matter to me. After just 1 visit I had already noticed a change in my self. So did my family and friends. Would definitely recommend to anyone stressing or worrying, come give this a try. It worked for me.
GMcQ of Tullibody Clinical Hypnotherapy on 11 May 2015 May 11, 2015
Before any session of hypnotherapy my anxiety felt like it was taking over my life. Three sessions later and I feel like a different person and back to being me again. I would definitely recommend.
DH of Falkirk Clinical Hypnotherapy on 2 March 2015 March 2, 2015
I would recommend Heather as she is a lovely woman with a relaxing voice. She has helped me so much with weight loss, I couldn’t have got this far in such a short time without her. I have lost 2 stone and 2 lbs in 9 weeks, and 48”, and I am continuing to lose weight steadily every week. I know that if I have any issues or I am struggling, Heather is on hand with great advice. Thanks Heather xx
LW of Falkirk Hypnoband on 2 March 2015 March 2, 2015
Heather and the HypnoBand service is fantastic. It makes you think about what you need to change and the reasons for doing it. Each session has been great and value for money. 8 weeks in, 22lb + 17.5 inches down!
NG of Bathgate HypnoBand on 6 January 2015 January 6, 2015
Initially I contacted Heather to try to conquer my fear of heights before going to Las Vegas. I had 3 sessions and was amazed at how I was able to cope with heights. I have since returned to see Heather for coping with stress and anxiety. I don’t think I’ll ever not come for hypnotherapy. I find it so relaxing and keeps me balanced and calm. I’d highly recommend it to anyone.
LL of Edinburgh Clinical Hypnotherapy on 11 December 2014 December 11, 2014
I can’t recommend Heather highly enough for her professional friendly practice and wealth of experience as a hypnotherapist. She’s helped me more than I imagined possible for which I’m very grateful. I had no idea that hypnotherapy could be so effective.
KG of Edinburgh Clinical Hypnotherapy on 13 November 2014 November 13, 2014
I came to Heather with a severe phobia of spiders; my life revolved around them. After 3 sessions with Heather my phobia has gone completely and has changed my life for the better. Heather is wonderful.
LF of Falkirk Clinical Hypnotherapy on 5 November 2014 November 5, 2014
After suffering with anxiety for many years I decided to try hypnotherapy with Heather. After only 3 sessions my anxiety and stress levels were at an all time low and I was confident with the tools I was given to carry on. I would highly recommend Heather and hypnosis for anxiety sufferers.
KMcL of Polmont Clinical Hypnotherapy on 23 September 2014 September 23, 2014
Attended session to help reduce my fear of flying. First Session was 10 hours before flight. It is the best money I have spend as I was totally relaxed in flight, even through turbulence! It made my holiday so much more enjoyable. Second session now makes me feel like flying is like driving a car!
MH of Fauldhouse Clinical Hypnotherapy on 11 September 2014 September 11, 2014
Came to Heather with a variety of personal and psychological issues. I was in a very dark place at that time and had negativity and anxiety. I now feel rejuvenated and more confident. My anxiety has gone and my IBS is virtually non-existent.
WB of Falkirk Clinical Hypnotherapy on 19 July 2014 July 19, 2014
Week 7 and lost 18 pounds. Eating habits totally changed, sleeping pattern totally changed. Doing lots more things I wasn’t doing before and feeling more confident. Totally changed the way I look at food. Eating more healthily and not snacking the same. Now taken control of food and taken more control over life.
SD of Blackridge Weight Management on 24 June 2014 June 24, 2014
8 weeks in and I have lost 1 stone and 10 pounds. I have absolutely no plans to change my new eating habits of 3 meals a day. Heather is fantastic. What a lovely lady! She has made the experience enjoyable and easy. HIGHLY recommended – happy customer!
CL of Falkirk Weight Management on 21 June 2014 June 21, 2014
After 10 years of insomnia, I have finally managed to learn to relax and drift into dreams as a result of Heather’s skill and patience.
SR of Linlithgow Clinical Hypnotherapy on 16 June 2014 June 16, 2014
I would recommend people to visit this business website. Particularly if they are struggling with weight, smoking, anxiety issues. I have attended a five week session for weight management and cannot believe how well I feel after this period. Heather is a lovely warm caring individual.
SB of Falkirk Weight Management on 30 May 2014 May 30, 2014
I first approached Heather about her services after failing a part of my survival training course for working offshore. I had a problem using the breathing apparatus used in the helicopter underwater escape training and I feared that my chances of working offshore had ended before they had even started. After three sessions with Heather her techniques enabled me to overcome my fear of using this breathing apparatus and also helped me cope with the stress and anxiety of having to go back and try the course again. I don’t think I realised how worked up I was about this until after the first session where I walked out feeling like a great weight had been lifted off my shoulders and I had a completely different attitude towards not only the survival course but things in general. The sessions themselves were an amazing experience taking me into a state of relaxation I would never have thought possible. Now thanks to Heather I completed the course with confidence and am now looking forward to a new and exciting career in the offshore energy industry. This itself is testament to the diversity of Heather’s skills and hopefully convinces people to contact Heather for help with things they might have thought no one could help with. My family and I would just like to thank Heather once again for her help.
CG of Falkirk Clinical Hypnotherapy on 13 Apr 2014 April 13, 2014
Lost a stone in 5/6 weeks. Completely positive thinking. These feelings reinforced by each hypnotherapy session. Have tried many different types of ‘diets.’ This new regime in eating habits is by far the best. Heather very good – explanation & hypnosis first class.
AW of Bonnybridge Hypnoband on 9 Apr 2014 April 9, 2014
I’ve been to Heather a few times. She really makes you feel comfortable. I have been for Smoking. I am now a non-smoker, and also for weight management, and so far I am 1 stone 3 pounds down and I feel great.
AD of Airth Smoking Cessation and Weight Management on 5 Apr 2014 April 5, 2014
Thank you so much Heather for helping me deal and be able to cope with some very challenging things happening in my life. You have helped me so much with dealing with stress and being able to feel more confident about being more in control of how things can affect me.
SS of Stenhousemuir Stress Management on 31 Mar 2014 March 31, 2014
I had a HypnoBand fitted in March/April 2013 and Heather was brilliant. I had one really bad addiction to chocolate since I stopped smoking and could not kick it. Now I don’t eat chocolate at all or sweets that I used to eat all the time either. I am diabetic and at the time was taking 3 different medications for it and have just been to my diabetic clinic yearly appointment and the consultant was over the moon as I have lost nearly 2 stones in weight and have also cut out 6 milligrams of medication off the diabetic meds. So whatever Heather did it is working and I am quite happy to lose 1 lb or whatever a month as long as it keeps working. Heather worked her magic on me and would not hesitate to recommend her to others. Good luck Heather in your new venture in Livingston.
IR of Whitburn HypnoBand on 25 Sep 2013 September 25, 2013
Just a wee update it’s 18 weeks since we met for our first session and I’d like to update you as to my progress, I reached my initial target and I’m really chuffed with my progress. I reached my 5 stone target this week and so far my weight loss is 5st 4lb and 18 inches thanks for all your support. I’ve set myself a new target of 7.5 stone and I feel setting myself small achievable goals is the way forward so the long term goal doesn’t seem so daunting and far off.
SW of Falkirk HypnoBand on 22 Sep 2013 September 22, 2013
I just wanted to send you a quick message to say thanks very much for the hynotherapy session I received from you. This was exactly 1 month ago today and I have never looked back after leaving your place. I can honestly say I am 100% a Non-Smoker! And have never felt better, more positive about myself and in control of my life in a long time. Your CD has helped me very much, especially during times when I am feeling stressed and anxious. I find that listening to this every night before I go to sleep helps me relax and I also wake up every day feeling calm and ready to face the day ahead as a non-smoker.
SS of Falkirk Smoking Cessation on 11 Sep 2013 September 11, 2013
I found my Weight Management Hypnotherapy brought out my confidence to achieve weight loss and introduced me to foods I had never tried and didn’t think I would like. It has helped me continue to feel confident in myself, and the information received each week was very helpful
AD of Falkirk Weight Management on 29 Jul 2013 July 29, 2013
Visited Heather to see about my fizzy drink addiction. Within 1 week I had a noticeable difference and by second week I have stopped altogether! Amazing relaxation benefits too. Heather has the magic touch!
CS of Polmont Clinical Hypnosis on 18 Jul 2013 July 18, 2013
Had HypnoBand hypnosis and I would recommend using Heather for Anything in the future. Heather makes you feel at ease from the first time you meet her and is always there for her clients during and after their sessions for support. My HypnoBand has been great but through hypnosis and willpower I am losing weight.
SW of Falkirk HypnoBand on 15 Jul 2013 July 15, 2013
Delighted to tell you that AR gave birth to baby C on Monday 20th at 2.01pm weighing 6lb 10oz.
Her surges started around 9am on Monday morning. AR felt most comfortable being in the shower. She was calm and relaxed throughout using her breathing techniques as the surges came. She didn’t feel the need to go to hospital until after 1pm by which time the surges were only 3 mins apart. We arrived at hospital at 1.35 and baby C arrived 26 mins later! There was no time to fill the waterpool but that didn’t matter. AR took nothing stronger than a few puffs of gas and air. Baby C was nice and placid, no crying and eyes wide open taking everything in. Hypnobirthing definitely worked for us!
AR and LR of Falkirk HypnoBirthing on 22 May 2013 May 22, 2013
I had tried every recommended smoking cessation known to man. I was left in the frame of mind that after 40 years of smoking 30 cigarettes a day I would never be able to stop. I read an article about HMH Therapy and my daughter kindly offered to pay for me to give Hypnotherapy a try so I phoned Heather and met with her on 8th March 2013, I must admit I was sceptical as I had been hypnotised before and it had not worked. Heather immediately made me feel at ease and we talked at length about my health problems and why I HAD to stop smoking. She then asked me to lie back and put my feet up on a stool I was very comfortable she then asked me to close my eyes and she began to talk to me, the next think I remember was waking up and saying to her you hypnotised me. I had been out for the count and was astonished that Heather had been able to put me under as I am a strong willed person, but, she did.
I paid her and left and I was thinking to myself I should be lighting a cigarette just now but didn’t have the urge to. This took place 10 weeks ago and I have NEVER felt like a cig since my husband and family cannot believe how well I’m doing. I can officially say I am a non smoker. Heather also gave me a cd to listen to which I use not because I want to smoke but I find it helps when I am anxious about anything. Heather I can’t thank you enough I have over come an addiction because of your Gift because that is what it is, and I have never slept so well and now I can set a good example to my 5 year old grandson. Thank you so much Heather and anyone reading this please take the step towards being a smoke free zone by contacting this lovely lady who from first hand experience I know will help you.
VW of Falkirk Smoking Cessation on 12 May 2013 May 12, 2013
September last year I finally decided that I needed to & wanted to give up smoking, thats when I called Heather. Since that night of therapy exactly 6 months ago, I have never smoked or wanted to smoke another cigar, once again Heather I would like to thank you for your help & advice. Thanks.
SF of Blantyre Smoking Cessation on 20 March 2013 March 20, 2013
I recently came to your clinic for a hypno band, I wasn’t sure at first because I had tried everything under the sun but the bottom line was I had no willpower at all. I had 2 hypno sessions with you before the gastric band session and was looking forward to the band session. I enjoyed the session but at the time I didn’t feel much difference and for the next 2 weeks I didn’t feel anything had changed and thought that it wasn’t for me and was readly (and willing) to give up. However a day or so later it was like a “light going off in my head” and I started to feel better in myself, not as hungry and I have started going to various exercise classes i.e. body combat, kettlecise, body pump which I have never tried before, I am now losing weight steadily, not eating to extreme and exercising regularly. The main thing I notice is that I am not thinking about food 24/7 the way I was previously and have managed to stop eating at least 6 packets of crisps per day !!!!!
Thank you for your support and I will let you know when I am at the weight I want to be, I would recommend the hypno band to anyone considering it.
JS of Falkirk Hypnoband on 11 March 2013 March 11, 2013
Hi Heather wee update that’s 1 month passed on Monday eve there, been off them not had one sure had strong urges but taking every battle as and when it happens gets easier but a long way to go yet Many thanks for the help and hope you have had a good Christmas and wishing you a happy new year.
JT of Falkirk Smoking Cessation on 26 December 2012 December 26, 2012
Dear Heather. Our baby was born on Thursday 13.12.12 at 17.49 by elective caesarean section. She weighed 8lb 5oz and is in good health. We are happy to have avoided the cascade of medical intervention that an inducement would have involved, which the doctors had tried to pressurise us into. Now is the road to recovery after the surgical procedure of elective caesarean during which we used the relaxation techniques, breathing / deepening and visualisation to make the process more peaceful and calm to work through. Whilst we were not able to have the birth of our choice we are delighted with the outcome and found the Hypnobirthing techniques invaluable.
KS and DS of Falkirk HypnoBirthing on 17 December 2012 December 17, 2012
I would recommend Heather as attending this program was very relaxing. Heather put me at ease, boosting my confidence, therefore making it a lot easier to lose weight using the Hypnoband rather than any slimming club I have attended.
WT of Falkirk Hypnoband on 17 December 2012 December 17, 2012
Very positive. Hypnoband is definitely the best weight loss solution. Having tried every slimming club you can think of, a Hypnoband is the best. Don’t need to think about food anymore or count calories or points. Food is not a major thought. I am eating smaller portions and full quicker, and no longer snacking in between. Thank you very much Heather.
CF of Dunipace Hypnoband on 10 December 2012 December 10, 2012
This review will be too short to put into words what Hypnotherapy can do for you, I went along to see Heather as I have been suffering from being anxious, nervous etc. and have lived with this for over 20 years, my kids are getting older and not needing mummy as much so I found that it was time for me to try something different and get rid of this feeling forever. I am not an easy person to relax but found Heather very calming and making you at ease, did not think it would work but WOW it so does if you are reading this you must make that phone call to HMH Therapy. Thank you Heather x
JM of Falkirk Clinical Hypnotherapy on 31 October 2012 October 31, 2012
In May this year I went to see Heather at the clinic in Polmont. The clinic is lovely and relaxing and Heather is so friendly and welcoming. I have spent many years trying out different diets and all the latest fads, I could probably write a book there is nothing I don’t know, or so I thought. All the health professionals say eat less and move more, well it’s not rocket science and it does work believe it or not. However I was not in the frame of mind at the time until I met Heather and went through the hypnoband process. I went form being a totally frazzled mum, holding down a demanding job and juggling everything to being very relaxed and feeling like I was 6ft tall, bearing in mind I’m only 5ft 1in. The whole process made me look at why I constantly grazed at food and the reasons behind me over-eating, I found the food diary to be really helpful and for once did not think about how many calories was in something. I just ate 3 healthy meals a day with healthy snacks when I wanted something and in the first week I lost 8lb. The CD’s I also found to be very relaxing and my sub-conscious must have taken over as by the time I had finished doing my deep breathing I was so relaxed I was actually sleeping.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has struggled with their relationship with food. Heather is so friendly and easy to talk to and at times so relaxing that I don’t want to wake up. Not only has this helped with my own weight loss but also with relaxation and tools to cope in my often busy and hectic life.
LA of Kincardine HypnoBand on 26 September 2012 September 26, 2012
I was hypnotised in January 2012, which was 8 months ago. I feel so much better within myself, more positive, and £65 a week better off. I would highly recommend Heather Hutchison to help stop smoking.
AG of Falkirk Smoking Cessation on 17 September 2012 September 17, 2012
I would recommend coming to HMH Therapy to anybody who feels and believes in the healing powers of Hypnotherapy as a coping mechanism to use in any aspect of their lives that causes them stress and panic.
RY of Falkirk Phobia Treatment on 23 July 2012 July 23, 2012
Heather has helped me take back control of not only my eating but also my life. I found the therapy relaxing and it helped me find my old self.
FC of Livingston HypnoBand on 13 July 2012 July 13, 2012
When I first came to HMH Therapy I was feeling really low and not myself but after several months of consultations I am feeling a lot better and have benefited from the excellent service and experience from HMH Therapy. Thanks for everything.
FR of Falkirk Clinical Hypnotherapy on 09 July 2012 July 9, 2012
I had real anxiety issues and with 3 sessions with Heather I felt 100% better. The therapy really helps. Heather is so understanding and kind and I have gotten my life back on track, free from anxiety. I would totally recommend this service.
