As a doctor, I felt sceptical, even suspicious about the use of complimentary therapies. Unless there was a tablet I could throw at the situation, I wasn’t interested. I started seeing Renie at my local cancer support centre upon the suggestion of a Macmillan nurse. I was highly anxious and felt very bleak at the time. I started hypnotherapy with Renie and the effect was dramatic and immediate. The experience was positive and calming. I continue the visualisation techniques at home even now.
