A few references for why I'm passionate working with YOU
"Irina, I just want to say thank you for all your help when I was in a very dark place.
Now I have no panic attacks, am sleeping well and generally feeling good about myself.
I feel as my brain has got rid of a lot of baggage I was carrying about.
I feel so good enjoying everything."
"Everything is fantastic in my world we are expecting a little baby boy anytime.
Work is going really well.
I have grown in confidence in life and now thanks to you i am able to face up when i walk down the street.
I will never never ever forget what you did for me, and you will always remain a part of my life
i still use your methods of what i learnt from you.
I hope one day maybe our paths will cross again you are such a warm person full of energy."
"I really do thank you for all the encouragement and advice you have given me. You are brilliant.
Feeling free of guilt, fear and negative beliefs has definitely cleared energy blocks
and released the energy from all the worrying and anxieties I carried with me.
It has lightened my mind, clearing space to think and create creative ideas. This has been such a relief."
Thinking about Steph who is on her way to the airport today for her 10 hour flight to Canada. Steph was at the Lowestoft airshow when RAF Harrier jet crashed into the sea in 2002 in front of thousands of people. She was a little girl at a time. A thought of going on a plane caused debilitating fear. Fear also effected other areas of her life, including general underlying anxiety and depression. I saw Steph for our final session on Friday. She wrote, "I feel safe and I am confident. I'm looking forward to my holiday!!"
"In a very short time I went from feeling sad, hopeless, worthless, with IBS, OCD and with no confidence, to how I am today. Now I can see what a special and unique person I am, that I will never let anyone else make my happiness for me, because I had it in myself all along, and Irina helped me to realise that, to change my life for the better and be so much happier!"
"The last time we met we tackled my eating issues, and i have to say and even on behalf of my nearest and dearest there has been a shift in my patterns… A huge Thank you for that…"
"Thank you Irina for making my life a whole heap better!"
Blessed and grateful beyond measure

"I was feeling unwanted. Guilty. No confidence. Worried. Depressed. I now feel happy. Relaxed and more confident that ever. I am feeling wanted and my opinion matters. People listen to me."
"I had counselling for a year and nothing changed for me. I was anxious, felt closed and restricted.
I couldn't interact with people. It is amazing that now I am relaxed and receptive. I feel more willing to be open.
It's like the book that was closed, now it is open."

So proud of this super intelligent young man! He wasn't my typical client and it certainly wasn't a quick fix but the results are magical. Today was his moment of reflection. He said, "when I first came I was empty, disconnected, given up, depressed, psychotic, heavily medicated, had loss of awareness, dissociation, OCD, couldn't look at windows as I saw a reflection of myself and hated it to the point of fainting; mirrors were covered in the house. NOW I can see the funny side of everything. I am more comfortable. The improvement is massive. No medication. 9 times out of 10 I'm in a positive state feeling content and relaxed. I'm organised. I'm happy (at this point my eyes got a little wet), I have a great girlfriend." "I am happy, that's been reached. The improvement is massive," he repeated
"How I was: unsettled, feeling nervous – bad thoughts couldn't relax when it came to eating.
Was unable to eat in restaurants. How I am now completely relaxed and happy with my thoughts.
Free to live normally and happy with my positivity.
Excited about going to NY for holidays this week."
Another wonderful message from a junior doctor Sandy who couldn't pass her GP exam and came for a few sessions before her last attempt, "Hi Irina, just to let you know – I passed my exam!!! Thanks so so so so so much for all your help!" I am so so so so so blessed.
A bank manager came to see me. A wonderful man with an incredible combination of powerful energy, super intelligent mind and a very big heart. He was under enormous stress, struggling with anxiety and depression – not his normal state. He was on a sick leave, signed off work by his doctor as could not cope. He paid in advance for 5 sessions, decided to have two per week. When he came to see me the second time he was so much happier and relaxed, "like being myself again", he commented with many thanks. Third session was his last one, he got well, really well. His energy returned, he was laughing & ready to conquer the world; he also said that his relationship with the loved one improved. For now he got back to work to manage his team in a new way, with new awareness. His remaining sessions he passed to a family member ("everyone would benefit from Irina's magic", he kindly noticed).
"I feel absolutely great after seeing Irina! I feel like flying, my wings have been released and it feels now that there is nothing I can't achieve. I know that I am blessed with love and I encourage all to see her if having any issues in your life that are holding you back. Please - JUST BE. Much love always.
The world is your oyster & you are the pearl inside"
"After every session I felt more in touch with who I am and more importantly, more at ease with who I am.
The sessions were very fulfilling, each session has helped me gain in confidence.
Huge thank you Irina for that."
"In the beginning I was Fearful, Worried, Overwhelmed, Irritable, Panicked, Anxious,
Lacked Enjoyment / Fulfilment. Today I am Positive, Calmer, Happier, Joyful, Enjoying the Moment,
Loving Myself & my Friends / Family."
"I was feeling unloved & isolated & scared. Now I want to go & live life to the full & do everything I enjoy." Jill, after dealing with sexual abuse by her father, poor self-esteem and depression.
"Although I was skeptical at first it soon became apparent how helpful the sessions were and the positive effect they had on me and my life. I am now happy and positive.
People comment how great I look and how confident I've become."
"Working with you Irina gave me freedom"
"It's a little like magic! I came to Irina hopelessly despondent and after the 1st session I felt like I could smile again. Frankly I felt a bit ridiculous like I needed to keep it to myself. I still can't quite believe it. I just need to let go and enjoy the ride now…!"
"Hi Irina I hope you are well. One thing to say: 'You're good!' I'm not sure what you did the other day but I have never felt so positive, buoyant and overall optimistic about the future.You're good!'
Matt, came to shift anger, frustration and an addiction
Living through "I love somebody else" is not the easiest thing in the world, especially when children are involved. Men and women in these circumstances seek to re-build their confidence and emotional wellbeing. I also get people though the door who have fallen in love outside their family and feel confused, torn apart, guilty. A very beautiful and intelligent lady, senior NHS leader, was on a sick leave with depression. It was a privilege for me working with her. She managed to forgive her husband and has now brought all her family to a happy place again. They deeply love each other and do many fun things together. This lady wrote: "When I came I was in turmoil, lost, very lacking confidence and unable to be rational. This situation made me feel powerless to make decisions. Now I have a sense of calm. I have re-gained my confidence and acceptance of what I've been through. I am whole, complete again. I feel I am worthwhile. I am strong. I am loving."
"I just wanted to thank you in helping me to gain strength, positivity and get rid of the depression & anxiety i was feeling. I feel that since i have met you I am a lot brighter, more content, more confident & happier after having our sessions. They were all by skype & i feel this worked fine. Also at the start I was still very unwell & a bus trip into Norwich or Hoveton would have caused me to be more anxious so i really do thank you for being able to offer the skype facility. It took an extra worry away & I felt as if we were in the same room anyway.
I have finished my sessions with you for the time being & maybe i won't need to come back to you but will keep you updated with my progress.
Just briefly to explain before i started seeing you i had tried to commit suicide 4 times & had been taken into Northgate mental health hospital for a weeks stay then a half way house for mentally ill patients for another week so i was a very poorly lady. I was empty scared depressed & very anxious of everything before our work together & I will be very thankful always for your help.

Your help literally saved my life. I was choked with a tear of honour when you told me i made you feel like life was worth living when we were saying good bye. Thank you from the bottom of my cleansed heart. I will be in touch & once again Thank you for all your kindness and amazing work you have done with me. Much Love xxx"
"I safely backed to my normal life and started my job. Thank you your support in term of master.
I could not graduate without your mental support"

This beautiful soul, who could not cope with her own negative thoughts, feelings & panic attacks anymore, does not speak much. But when she does it's really special. That is why this message from her made my heart sing, "Hi I just wanted to say a big thank you for working with me over the past couple of weeks!
I really appreciate all that you have done! So, THANK YOU!"

"Before, I felt very overwhelmed and was always seeing things and myself in pessimistic light,
as well as easily panicking over things.
Now I feel fantastic, so positive and optimistic about the future and I feel able to overcome things and achieve so many things I previously thought I would never be able to do, e.g. driving.
I also feel a lot more calm and relaxed in myself."

A young man was taking antidepressants but the helpless feeling was not going away, just numbness was there. He had the sessions with the desire "to be myself again, happy, positive, energetic, relaxed." Today he wrote, "I can smile and be myself again!"
"I felt sceptical at first as to whether the hypnosis would 'work' on me because I'm very analytical and logical, but was pleasantly surprised to find I felt very willing to be in that state once we'd started. I felt incredibly relaxed and enjoyed 'the journey'. This feeling of relaxation stayed with me afterwards too."

"From feeling anxious about social situations and wellbeing of the loved ones to "I feel so light, so free,
so able to have a future, so able to let my boys be free, so able to have my life again & enjoy it,
today, tomorrow and in the future, the tears of yesterday have gone forever."
This gentleman came to me when he was off work for several months due to stress and debilitating anxiety. There are only four people trained to do the job he was doing in the city. Although he loved the job he had fear that he could not trust himself to manage it. His mum is a healer but she has not been practising for years
until we encouraged her to reconnect with the gift of healing. Here is an update from him,
"Hello Irina, How are you? I hope you are well ( I know you will be ) I thought I would drop an e-mail
of a kind of update for you as you were a strong part of my road to recovery.
I am still at work and enjoying it. Mum has continued the remote healing and as said
my energy is very strong once more and glowing.
So I am keeping my feet on the ground."

A very intelligent woman came to see me, she wanted professional help to deal with anger over the Brexit situation. Anger and frustration took over her life, effected sleep, wellbeing and most communications.
At the end of the session she could see a bigger perspective and choices she can make from her heart. Interestingly enough she also managed to forgive her mother for excessive criticism that caused lots of anger in her teens. She made peace with the past so she can have a happier future. She left smiling and loving herself a little more, this will positively effect all areas of her life.
Before the referendum people used to say, I think. Now they say, I feel. What an amazing opportunity for AWAKENING the country has created for its people (and visa versa), let's embrace it.
After all we are here to grow, love and expand our consciousness.

"Thank you so much, having lived with anxiety for so long I didn't know what it would feel like not to have it. Learning to just 'be' is amazing!"
What a beautiful message from a gorgeous Goddess Ellen, "Hi Irina, I just wanted to let you know how my anxiety has been almost zero! I went to the Theatre Sat night and it only occurred to me on Sunday that I had no anxious thoughts at all. It was amazing! Also I've referred someone else to you, she will be in contact soon about her insomnia. Thank you so very much for helping me X" In awe with her divinity and forever grateful.
"I really wanted to say thank you to you, I won't forget the lessons you taught me. You really are a beacon for human love and kindness. Your warmth just radiates throughout, and it has brought a lot of hope, comfort and inspiration to me, to be the best in me too. There needs to be a lot more Irinas in the world. You touch the hearts of more people than you know. Keep shinning."
"Hi Irina, I just wanted to say thank you for your help and getting me started on my journey. It feels like I am a sponge, soaking up so much information and will continue to do so for the rest of my life. I can't help but wonder how magical it must be to feel happy in myself, with or without a partner. I have so much to learn and explore about spirituality and finding out about myself, the real, true me inside, the truth about who I really am. You have inspired me so much, thank you"
"Hi Irina. I wanted to say, that after our last session, I feel good, I feel powerful …. I feel like something was
un-locked inside at our meeting. With understanding that my opinion means a lot, and my love means a lot too, and my freedom to express just when I want. This freedom actually means more than positive or negative response! So, I'm embracing my opinion, and also letting myself feel angry when I like to.
So I wanted to say thank-you, and let you know that I'm in a better place."
"Hi Irina, A lovely lady called Sue A came in today and asked me to let you know that since you helped her with depression she has been fine and is not depressed anymore. She wants to say a very big thank you…"

Alex, clinic reception
"My life was locked in a prison cell, consumed with the fear of panic attacks that made me petrified of leaving my 'comfort zone' which was intact a prison. Now my life is so full, I can do anything, even run down stairs!
I have so many things to do & explore, places to see, experience new.
I have a life again at last & I'm free to enjoy it. Thank you xxx (from my heart that is full of love & joy) x"

"I felt there is no hope. At the worst point I felt why would I want to live like this. After the first session with Irina I was amazed how relaxed I was and it went from strength to strength. From last week it turned a corner again and I'm happy, relaxed and at peace. Inner peace is what I wanted from when I came first."

Beautiful young lady lived through a recent suicide of a close family member.
She developed anxiety and fear of being in the house on her own.
Today at her second session, she is transformed. She wrote, "I feel a lot more in control of my feelings.
I am confident and I am getting better each day. I see a happy future."
"When I first came I felt really low, I did not believe in myself, was not energetic. I had panic attacks, tightness in my chest, I often was breaking down in crying. I am now energetic, positive, happy, smiling. My laughter has come back and I get dad dancing again. The whole family is so much happier."
Michael 15 years old
"I found the session with Irina very relaxing and enjoyable. She has a soothing voice and is very perceptive and wise. Irina is well trained and experienced – I would trust her with my problems."
Sandra Ballester, Therapist
"Irina, I came to see you because fear of driving had been stopping me for years. Now as I started to enjoy driving I also noticed that my fear of dentists disappeared. I had the worst root canal treatment yesterday and I was fine. It was just flowing. I'm now also more confident and happy. It's just magic. I feel so good!" Sam

Let go fear of driving with Irina Valentino
'Your life is your message. Create it wisely, with love'
Irina Valentino

"I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you for all your work with me. Today is Mother's Day a day in previous years I have found very difficult but today I am feeling happy. I am thinking of my mum and remembering all the good times we had. Rather than thinking about the children I never had I am thinking of all the children in my life I have to love and cherish. All is good in my life and all is well. You really are magical. Love xxxxxx"
"I don't know what the hypnosis done but I FEEL SO GOOD. I feel relaxed. I expected to be stressed but I don't. Nowhere near as hard as I thought it would be. People smoke around me and I don't want to. I smoked for ever 50 years, since I was 12. 50-60 cigarettes a day in the last 25 years. I am amazed, very calming experience.
I came to give up smoking and now I am feeling well, it might sound silly but the blood is flowing easier in my veins. Absolutely brilliant. People comment on how well I look. My 91 years old mother is proud of me."

"Visiting Irina has changed my life! My lifetime battle with the love of cakes and trying to keep my shape was dragging me down. With Irina's help I learned how to be kind to myself without dieting.
She highlighted my strengths and I am now the master of my willpower and desires.
"Being an electric engineer I feel that I've being recharged. I've found peace and calmness that I couldn't
reach for in my highly demanding stressful life that I've had before coming to seek your help"

"I came to see Irina with so much negative baggage & attitude towards people, poor self esteem and depression. After a couple of weeks treatment the universe has just been giving so much back to me in different ways, i.e. job promotion, great connections, respect from people. Thank you."
"After spending time with Irina I feel she has given me a new perspective at looking at myself and I know what she has said will stay with me. I will always be able to think of her wise words with regard to our lives."
Jane, had fear of death and anxiety
"Seeing Irina has enabled me to develop a love for myself, progressing to like myself more and find myself attractive. Using techniques learned I have been able to reduce instances of binge eating and generally feel better. Working together I have been able to leave every session feeling really good and to take those feelings with me throughout the week."
Ruth, had depression and a few different dependencies trying to cover up her inner discomfort
"Miracles do happen.
I see them every day in the eyes of people I meet and work with."
Irina Valentino

"Before coming to see Irina I found it very difficult to see the point of tomorrow. I could see no future to look forward to, nothing held much interest to me. Now I feel that I am definitely moving in the right direction and already feel much happier. I don't really see problems now that were there before. I now feel that I have a wonderful future ahead of me."
It's never too late to change your perspective on life. It's never too late to learn how to feel good. This 65 years old lady is an inspiration. She came to improve relationships in her family. She changed and everyone around her got much happier, reflecting her new state of mind. She wrote: "I feel happy and relaxed without my mind dwelling on negative thoughts. I am more confident. Irina will help you release troubles in your mind and
feel at ease, relaxed and happy."

"I was so down, anxious, frustrated and now I feel free, loveable, content, so happy and positive, and excited about my life. My husband and I think that you work with magic."
"When I first arrived I was experiencing quite severe abdominal symptoms, IBS, depression and mental stress. After 3 or 4 sessions the physical symptoms have virtually gone and my general mental state is greatly calmer and more relaxed."

"I felt anxious most of the time, especially when my daughter was away from me. My imagination would run wild with all kinds of awful things that might happen to her (based a younger sister's passing away many years ago). Now I feel relaxed and able to trust that all is well with everything and is as it should be. I feel happy and blessed."
"… we have worked things out and are now living together again with the children as a family. We have been the busiest we have ever been at work. Since I first came to see you I feel I am getting my life under control and it's all going great and achieving all my goals. I will try my best to come and see you at the seminar on the 18th as it would be great to see you again, even though you might not recognise me by then as I am a lot thinner and healthier ha ha. I FEEL THE HAPPIEST I HAVE EVER BEEN."
"Working with Irina allowed me to take a step back from my life and think differently, to really appreciate all the good things I already have. I am exited. I am stronger and happier. I feel at ease and ready to enjoy my future with my husband, family and friends, and truly achieve in whatever I choose to do."
Vicky, had enormous stress and could not able to deal with pressure from work and relationships
Experience life in a way that is healthy and rewarding,
passionate and meaningful

I have started to really appreciate life more by recognising how I feel in different situations.
Irina has shown me various techniques to assist me when I start to feel anxious and these techniques are definitely starting to have a positive effect on how I am living my life."
A man was very honest today at his first session when he said, "My biggest fear is losing my depression as it has been a huge part of me for many years (he has been on antidepressants for 6 years and still on his knees with depression!). It is my safe place to go." "So how much do you want to let it go?" I asked, "on the scale from 0 to 10, 10 being the highest." "9" he answered. Then we made it 9 and a half and 10. By the end of the session he wanted to have a genuine smile, feel happy and have passion for life. We dealt with his mother abandoning him at the age of 4, forgiving her, himself and all his broken relationships. He was leaving with the hugest smile, giggling and repeating, "I can't believe, it's magic, I am walking on air". Now was my turn to have a good laugh with him. We have some more work to do but today the world is already a happier place. His two little kids will know it straight away!
"I am a professional and also aware that there are aspects of my life i wish to improve on. In particular, I came to NLP with Irina to look at negative thinking patters; improving my confidence and forgiveness of self and others. In the past I have done traditional counselling and Cognitive Behavioural therapy to improve negative thinking patterns. To an extent these have helped. Yet the NLP techniques Irina has used with me, take a different approach. Irina allowed me to tap into the strength I already have. For example, through visualisation, I have been able to recall times when I was really confident and apply that to situations in the present. When Irina suggested an appointment via the telephone/skype I was a bit sceptical. Yet I was able to do a forgiveness exercise no problem this way. The appointments with Irina have had a powerful effect on me allowing me to tap into my own reserves to create new responses to situations in my every day life."
"Just a quick message Irina to say thank you. I've been reevaluating lots of things in my life over the past few months and one thing that stands out for me is a strong desire to experience happiness every waking day… I simply don't want happiness to be a delayed pleasure or luxury. Being 'in the moment' is something I've also learned to enjoy. Thanks, as always, for your help and also for your little reminders… have a wonderful day and be good to yourself."
"I'm seeing a difference in Alfie every week. His confidence is growing and I believe that's down to you giving him the tools to unleash his inner confidence. I have a very happy little boy xxx"
"Irina, I just want you to know that you make a big positive difference to my life."
"I can only thank the universe and marvel at it's intricate workings for bringing such a beautiful soul as yourself into my experience. Thank you! For one to appreciate the creative flow that we all have going through our lives, and something that we are totally surrounded by in each and every day, and how it makes our heart sing in harmony with the higher realms when something such as our meeting happens to us. Truly wonderful! Have fun & feel the Love."
