"Phil has helped me overcome feelings of pain and despair around injustice. We had 6 or so sessions to help me overcome anger when dealing with unfair people. I learnt how to pause and respond rather than react and explode, and to use breathing techniques to help activate my para-sympathetic nervous system. This helps us to apply objective, evidence based information to our situation and respond in an appropriate way. I also found Phil to be very calming and supportive.In these challenging times when relationships need a bit more patience, I have found our Zoom sessions very helpful".
"My relationship with my mother has never been especially loving or strong. After an argument, we didn’t speak with each other for months. After reaching out to see if we could resume communication, I was rebuffed and was told not to contact her again and felt a lot of anger and hurt. Philip guided me through dealing with the anger towards my mother, and the hurt she had caused me throughout my life. Using the CBT tools that Philip taught me, I overcame my anger, forgave my mother and dealt with my historic hurt. Philip guided me step-by-step to make this possible. I cannot thank him enough for the help, guidance, and tools to help me feel strong and more resilient. I now include some of the CBT ideas in my daily life. "
"I contacted Philip to try and work through some long standing relationship issues with my mother and also some anxiety/fear problems. I was so pleased that I made this approach. I had previously attempted counselling several times to try to get to grips with these issues but somehow, although I fully understood the process, they never seems to work for me personally. Philip’s approach was ideally suited to my personality and mindset; I am logical, organised and pragmatic and Philip’s style fitted with this perfectly. I worked with him for 12 sessions and can honestly say he has given me the tools to work through my problems and enabled me to see a better way forward. I am most grateful for all his help".
"Having tried numerous medical and alternative options (to deal with panic disorder and performance anxiety) over a number of years with no success, Philip Naniewski was recommended to me. What I had begun to see as insurmountable challenges, Philip broke down into smaller elements & effectively ‘reset’ my mind through swapping unhealthy beliefs with more healthy, constructive beliefs. Philip's work provides you with simple, effective techniques that can make a long-term difference to mental well-being."
"I have been attending sessions with Phil throughout 2020 to analyse aspects of my life that were causing me concern and stress. Essentially Phil gave me my very own ‘MOT’. Phil helped me identify some key aspects of my life and attitudes that were having a negative impact and to look at my thought process in a more positive way. Phil helped educate me to the world of mindfulness and the use of breathing and to explore avenues that have been hugely enjoyable and beneficial. I look forward to my sessions with Phil as a ‘gift to me’ and am really satisfied with seeing the improvements in myself. Phil has been an absolute pleasure to work with."
"Working with Philip across my CBT sessions was entirely fulfilling. I felt heard and valued in the collaborative approached he used. I was able to explore my feelings in a safe space with room to discuss anything and everything. From each session , I could apply techniques taught by Philip to my daily life and interactions. Techniques such as mindfulness and mapping out my thoughts are still applied regularly for me. I became more self aware and learnt to trust my own mind with his support. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Philip and I truly believe his work has made me a more well-rounded individual. "
"I first booked an appointment with Phil to undergo hypnosis for what I believed was work related anxiety. However, after a friendly yet thorough consultation Phil suggested a combination approach of CBT, hypnosis and mindfulness. The impact this has had on my life has been incredible. Not only can I comfortably talk and receive expert guidance, both in session and over the phone catch ups, Phil has provided me with my own personal toolkit to help manage any rocky moments myself. His relaxed and open approach provides an uplifting and safe environment that allows everybody to benefit from. It also helps to receive encouraging and educated advice which has helped me switch up my career and home life to a far happier and more balanced way of living. I would highly recommend making the call and having a chat!"
"Philip helped me come to terms with the end of a long term (14 yr) relationship. Through therapy he helped me through all the phases of loss, anger, guilt, jealousy and acceptance. His approach is always supportive, kind and patient. He is a great teacher and listens to your fears, worries and doubts; and in doing so, he moves you forward with constructive and supportive suggestions. I would not be where I am now, without his help and guidance. Philip made me aware of the wonderful qualities I still have, both as a single man and as a future partner. With Philip’s help, I was able to move forward with my life, to a happier and more fulfilling place. I would highly recommend Philip for your therapy and recovery needs."
"For anyone seeking focused personal development, I recommend Philip highly.
His sessions have an added bonus of producing a remarkable feeling of sustained tranquility and calm. Only you can do the work, but he certainly can provide you with a unique set of skills to aid you in your efforts for change."
"Philip helped me to deal with a history of binge eating, bulimia and depression. I was shown lots of brilliant ways to learn to heal myself. Previous counselling and slimming clubs never got to the root of my unhappiness. Philip has a natural gift to support and empower his clients. Through the use of CBT and hypnotherapy I am no longer in darkness and Philip’s compassionate belief in my recovery has brought light and sunshine in to my life."
