Marcia at Life clinics helped me enormously with my confidence issues and later my phobia of snakes, or anything resembling them, which was rapidly spiralling out of control. I couldn’t imagine ever being able to cope with this issue but I was shocked at how quickly Marcia’s techniques helped me get over my fears and helped me regain control of the situation. I now know that it is possible to tackle any issues that may arise and come out the other side. I particularly like the CD provided, which, along with the tapping techniques, allows me to relax and prepare for any situations that may challenge my confidence.”

“I found the opportunity to discuss the most private and emotionally complicated (to me, at any rate) issues with someone so sympathetic and non judgemental as Marcia extremely helpful.  My sessions with Marcia proved invaluable. I came away emboldened by each session and far more able to see the truth within myself.”

Paul, Kent

“My sessions with Marcia really helped me understand why I was so anxious, to deal with that anxiety and enabled me learn how to undo bad patterns of behaviour.”

Female, 40's Canterbury, Kent

“I went to Marcia with a debilitating fear of heights that before long would have restrained my life, now I have claimed back control. The freedom this gives me now is exhilarating!”

Natasha, Faversham, Kent

“Our overall experience of therapy was 100% positive! The sessions far exceeded my expectations and my daughter felt very comfortable in the sessions. We were both put at ease from the minute our appointment started and we both felt that we could talk about any of our problems, however uncomfortable that may have been. The main features that I think helped Rosie was the ‘worry tree’ and the ‘tapping’ lessons that we had to reduce her anxiety. These worked extremely well for her. Marcia has an extremely friendly, welcoming and understanding nature which put us both at ease from the minute we met her, we were both very lucky to have had the pleasure of her helping us! We would certainly go back to Marcia in the future, should we need to, she gave us great confidence that our problems could be solved, and they were!”

Helen H, Ashford, Kent

“Deciding to book an appointment with Marcia is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have tried everything to lose weight from prescription and over the counter medications to meal replacements and healthy eating/not so healthy eating diet’s. Nothing has worked. I have lost weight on various healthy eating diets but struggled doing so because being told that I could eat what I wanted, when I wanted meant something different to me than it did to the person who devised the diet! I felt guilty if I was ‘naughty’, then would stop all together. I would eat when I was sad, I would eat when I was happy, I didn’t actually need an excuse I’d just eat anyway! If I was upset it would be nothing for me to pop to town and buy a family size dessert and eat the lot in one go along with anything else I bought while in the shop.”

“Since working with Marcia, I really do eat what I want when I want it! She’s helped me to recognise when I’m physically hungry and reassured me it’s ok to fulfil that hunger with what ever I want (I mean anything!!) without feeling guilty! I no longer cook separate meals for me but eat exactly the same as the rest of my family. I’ve lost 3 stones so far in total, although I’m not obsessed with weighing myself and I am fitting into jeans and trousers that were too small for me 4 years ago when bought! I also enjoy exercising regularly, pre Marcia I always had an excuse why I couldn’t/didn’t exercise. I could go on and on singing Marcia’s praises! But I’m aware that I must be sounding like an advert which honestly I’m not. I’m just very grateful that I tried her, the money I’ve spent is less than I was spending on the food that I binged on. I feel better than I have in a long time, Marcia’s sessions really have changed my life.”
