I feel a different person

Hi Jacqueline,

Thank you again for the past couple of months and the support you have given. I would be happy for you to use the comments below to post as an anonymous review.
‘Jacqueline was extremely welcoming and supportive at a time when I just needed some guidance. After just a few sessions and an introduction to a new type of therapy, I feel a different person and ready to move forward again. I would highly recommend Jacqueline and am very grateful I found her’.
Take care, s

Where to begin…

Jacqueline Hurst

Where to begin… anxiety was something I previously knew nothing about let alone how to understand the symptoms, recognise triggers and learn how to become the best version of ‘me’ ! I can hands down and honestly say without Jacqueline I don’t know where I’d be right now, she’s been my personal angel and certainly a life saver! I remember my first session sat outside her premises in floods of tears and completely petrified, this first step meant that I needed to accept that I needed help not that I’d failed in life. She opened the door with a huge smile and opened her arms to me. I instantly felt welcomed and after a nice peppermint tea I started to calm down. Jacqueline has taught me many things I didn’t know about myself and provided me tools to work through my anxiety but most of all acceptance and that it’s ok to have what I always call a few bumps in the life road. After a couple of sessions I started to look forward to my Tuesday meet as Jacquelines premises is now my safe heaven where I’m not judged and can speak open and honestly about my troubles/feelings. She truly has the most wonderful gift and I’d highly recommend her to anyone. Very professional, calming nature and a fabulous personality! Thank you for everything you do and have done for me Jacqueline xxx

I can’t thank you enough for everything you did for me.

Hi Jacqueline
I’m so terribly sorry that I haven’t been in touch. I had an even worse rough patch after we last saw each other.
 I was made redundant (they tried to pay me next to nothing so I had to really them which took a lot of doing) then I had a miscarriage. Shortly after that my brother  tried to kill himself by jumping from a rail way bridge. He broke both of him hips and his foot. He was lucky to survive. All of that happened within 5 months of each other and it put a huge strain on me and Kieran. We’ve just about survived it.
Then my redundancy battle ended and I came away with a years salary. my brother recovered and I came to terms with the loss of the baby.
my husband  and I were not in a great place but we knew we wanted to still be together and “T”was absolutely thriving so we were moving on. Then K was offered an amazing opportunity in shanghai working for the Chinese enterprise and we went for it!
5 months of planning later and we arrived in shanghai yesterday. We will be here for three years all being well.
It was a huge risk and I hope it pays off after everything we’ve been through.
I can’t thank you enough for everything you did for me after losing A and then B. Your sessions honestly saved my life. Thier loses will always sit extremely heavily with me and I am still grieving for both of them.
We would absolutely love for your and Ray to come and stay with us here. I will send you our address. I have to sign off now as T is causing havoc!

Dear Jacqui, i just wanted to say thank you, with out you i’m not even sure if i’d be here to day, let alone be as content as i am. There is still along way for me to go, but for the first time since i can remember i can say that my depression doesn’t control me !

Thank you ……………………….

Hi Jaqueline,

I hope you are well. I just wanted to let you know 

I am feeling so much better these last couple of weeks, continuing to read the book and do the daily mindfulness exercises which has hopefully given me the tools to keep the worst of my anxiety at bay.

I just wanted to thank you for your help over the last couple of months. Simply talking about it has helped me put a lot of things into perspective and I now have some goals to work towards.

If I ever need any help in the future, I know where to come to!

Many thanks,


The best tool in the box when you’r feeling low is to talk to someone and our talks really helped so thank you for all your advice and support, it was also a pleasure meeting you.

Thanks again Jacqueline

Hi Jacqui,

I just want to get in touch to say a really big thank you for helping me through a difficult period of my life. Normally such an optimistic person, I came to you feeling low, confidence shattered and depressed. My business had collapsed and I owed a lot of money to the bank, my wife had experienced three recurrent miscarriages and we had not long experienced a death of a very close family member. All of these things happening at once was just too much for me to deal with. I had been trying to lift myself up on my own, but to no avail.

You listened to me talk about my problems in a way no one else could and helped me to see things in a different light. The tools you gave me to help improve my confidence will last forever, and I continue to practice these daily so they become my way of life.
I am pleased to say that things are a lot clearer for me now and life has improved immensely. My business debts have now been fully repaid to the bank, a huge weight off our family’s shoulders. My wife is now pregnant with everything progressing well and we are expecting a new addition to the family in January. My new business is going from strength to strength so things couldn’t be better.

Sometimes you just need someone to talk to who doesn’t judge you and is there to listen and guide you back on track. You did this and I am eternally grateful.

Many thanks again,


Hi Jacqui

I just wanted to email you to thank you for your help and support over the past few months. I am coping very well with my anxiety and haven’t had a panic attack in quite some time.

I know it will take time for my anxiety to be a thing of the past but I am now able to embrace it and use the coping strategies you taught me to help me stay calm. I have made a few small changes both in my work and home life including swimming and general ‘me time’ to unwind. I am recently noticing I CAN cope in stressful situations such as my car breaking down this morning- Just one of those things, whereas before due to be being so wound up and feeling so stressed, I would go into a full blown melt down.

The tools you have given me will last me a lifetime, mindfulness/relaxation/communication and many more, I would not hesitate to come back to you in the future should I ever need someone to talk to and confide in. I have recommended you to family, work colleagues and Friends.

I am so glad I met you and I wish you the best of luck in the future.

Kind regards


Thanks so much for all of your help… have held my hand through a long, dark tunnel and helped me back into the light.
Thank you seems inadequate but thanks.
