Hypnotherapy aids “Sugar-Free February” Fundraiser for Wiltshire Air Ambulance

Hypnotherapist Helen Breward from Royal Wootton Bassett, is engaging in a spot of self-hypnosis to drop a dress size AND raise money for Wiltshire Air Ambulance by cutting out refined sugars from her diet throughout February. Helen’s fundraising target is £2,000 to go towards the £3.25 million air ambulance running costs each year.

Helen was inspired to raise funds for Wiltshire Air Ambulance after a BNI breakfast visit to their current airbase in Devizes last December. She met the crew, saw plans and a model for their new airbase at Semington, and heard how their speedy attendance at serious accident scenes can turn life and death situations around. The Bell 429 helicopter is equipped with the same kit as a land ambulance and extra specialist equipment. It’s like bringing a mobile A&E to people to give them the best medical care possible in places which are inaccessible by road. Helen was deeply impressed and says “The crew are such amazing people and so dedicated. It’s very humbling to visit them and we’re so lucky to have the Wiltshire Air Ambulance just in case we ever need it.”

Helen may have an added incentive because she is in demand as an international conference speaker. She will speak at the International Medical and Dental Association (IMDA – AKA “The Hypno Expo”) Conference in Daytona, USA in May, and again in Las Vegas in August. Her specialist subject is the “Menopause Hypnotherapy Programme” which she has developed herself. She is writing a book on the subject due for launch in May so she’ll want to look her best.

Helen runs Pebbles Hypnotherapy and Training and has helped hundreds of clients with weight loss, fear of flying and giving up smoking. Helen believes in helping people transform their lives and says “Like many people over Christmas I indulged in a few too many chocolates and rich food. I want to get back to healthier eating to shed some extra weight, so what better way to do it than raise funds for Wiltshire Air Ambulance? This has given me the added motivation I needed”. Helen will cut out foods that have refined sugar added like cake, chocolate and ice cream. Surprisingly, a lot of bread has sugar added too, so the challenge will involve reading the ingredients lists on food labels carefully. She adds “This is going to be a real challenge, especially not being able to have my favourite ice-cream! I will be using my skills to hypnotise myself to reduce the appeal of sugar-filled foods that make us pile on the weight and fat”.

Valerie Whistler is the WAA Partnerships Coordinator and met Helen Breward at a BNI business networking event in Swindon. Valerie comments “We’re so grateful to Helen for choosing to support us and wish her well in her sugar free challenge. The funds she raises will help to keep our helicopter and crew flying and saving lives. We are a charity and we rely almost entirely on public donations to raise the £3.25 million a year we need to keep our essential service operational.”

Finally, Helen is offering to help other would be fundraisers achieve their fundraising and weight-loss goals. She says “If anyone else fancies fundraising for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance by taking part in “Sugar-Free February” I can supply a hypnosis recording to help them help themselves.

Hi Helen, I thought you would like to know that I have still not had a cigarette and any cravings have completely disappeared in over a month ! Even people smoking around me doesn't phase me and it is certainly all thanks to your good work! I have recommended you already.

Helen was recommended to myself to aid with my extreme ritual OCD. My constant rituals/thoughts/routines had completely took over my life & left me not being able to leave my room. It was crippling me mentally and I needed help. If it wasn’t for Helen, I honestly don’t believe I would be any further forward than where I was 8 weeks ago. I’ve gone from struggling to leave my bedroom to resuming work within that time. I am now back in the real world, leading a normal life which seemed a distance thought only 8 weeks ago.

We had always wanted to visit Nashville, so we booked the flights and hotel and everything was set for this fabulous trip. The more I thought about the flight the more my anxiety crept up. I have known Helen for some years, so I thought go to the best for the best results and that is what I got. After the first session my anxiety levels went from a ten to a one. With subsequent sessions it went to zero. Helen is AWESOME!!!!

Hi Helen, Because of your guidance over the last few months I can honestly say I am now much calmer and self-assured. Concerns of anxiety or panic really have left me. I am now more relaxed and optimistic about the future and live for now without worrying about tomorrow. The final two sessions had to be done online of course, due to the lockdown, but were equally effective and I must say just as enjoyable. Thanks Helen X

Helen’s treatment and persona was just brilliant for myself. We clicked straight away. The thoughts/tips/stories Helen taught me will stay with me forever. The recordings are also on my phone which on certain days are brilliant to listen to for reassurance. Overall, I wish I saw/found Helen earlier. She really cares and wants the best for her clients.

I signed up with Helen for the Virtual Gastric Band, not really expecting or believing that it would work. I have tried dieting for most of my adult life and when I reached 50, I decided to accept that I was a size 16 and always would be. I was a large size 16 and now I am a comfortable size 14 and still losing inches. My aim is to reach a comfortable size 12 and with Helen's help, I know I can do it.

At the time I thought it was a good idea and that I would be ok on the eight plus hour flight, but this soon changed! The realization of being 32,000 feet in the air for that length of time started playing on my mind, .a lot. So I decided I would go and see Helen for some hypnotherapy. On the day of the flight, I got on the plane, plugged into the onboard entertainment system and the next thing I knew we were in the air, I hadn’t even noticed us taking off. I am now confident and happy to do more long-haul flights in the future thanks to Helen.

Helen wanted to help me in any way she could. She made me feel comfortable & with her experience she explained to me how TOGETHER we will conquer this OCD. The actual hypnotherapy for myself was brilliant. After each session I could relate to everything Helen was saying to me. I can’t thank her enough for what she has done & the way she interacted with me throughout the process.

Thank you Helen for your support and hypnotherapy treatment over the past few months. I have really benefitted from the therapy, so much so, I returned to work following a long-term period of unwellness due to work induced anxiety. I have found the tools you gave me to support and protect myself to return to work and continue to be at work very helpful. My confidence is growing, although I still have anxiety feelings at times, I am learning to control these overwhelming feelings when they come.

The year of my 60th birthday, almost 10 years after giving up diets, I saw Helen's advert and thought … one last try? Helen was so nice and genuine, she made me believe that this might work so I signed up. 10 weeks after my Virtual Gastric Band was "fitted", I have lost 16 inches. I don't care about weight; I care about size. I was a large size 16 and now I am a comfortable size 14 and still losing inches. Thank you Helen, I couldn't have done this without your help and support.

Jane – Cirencester

A big thank you to Helen for reducing my flight anxiety down to zero, it meant I could enjoy the whole holiday experience. I was calm and not bothered by the flight at all, and even on the flight home when we had some turbulence, I was fine, not bothered at all. Helen is AWESOME!!!!

Helen is friendly, approachable and professional. The virtual gastric band course has given me life long skills to help me manage my weight. You don't have to weigh your foods or cut out any foods, the course is designed to help change your mind set. I would highly recommend this course to anyone else that may be struggling with their weight. In the future, I know Helen will still be there to help anytime I need some support.

COVID-19 and lockdown came along halfway through my treatment with you. When you initially suggested hypnotherapy sessions digitally I was concerned the sessions would not be as beneficial. However, to my surprise I found the hypnotherapy equally effective. I felt the same benefits via that media as face to face, so thankfully was able to continue gaining your support and complete the therapy.

Victoria – Cheltenham

For years I have been battling with my weight, I have tried every diet available, but nothing has worked for me. I saw Helen advertise a virtual gastric band course. I was unsure at first, but I thought after reading Helen's reviews I decided to give it a go. I am so glad that I did! For the first time in a long time I feel positive that I will eventually reach my target weight as I am already seeing a change in my body shape. I would highly recommend this course to anyone else that may be struggling with their weight.

Hayley - Swindon

I felt very comfortable with you as you have a very open, trusting, encouraging and calming manner. I am continuing to use the recorded hypnotherapy sessions we did together and realise it is an ongoing process, to keep well I need to continue using the tools you gave me. Thank you so much for your support at a very difficult time in my life. It is much appreciated. Keep well and doing what you do to support others.
