QinetiQ is one of the World's leading defence technology and security companies. In the UK alone, QinetiQ employs several thousand people. However, the economic downturn over recent years has effected government and MOD spending meaning that research and development has also taken a downturn. Along with many other companies, QinetiQ has had to make huge cuts including restructuring and redundancies.
Sure Life Hypnotherapy worked with QinetiQ offerings an on-site hypnotherapy service to employees. On the first day of advertising this service, the response from staff was phenominal and the waiting list grew very quickly and so advertising was stopped after the first week.

- Work related stress
- Motivation & focus
- Weight management
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Since starting the sessions my confidence has gone up and I manage difficult conversations better without getting easily upset with negative items".

"I have found this service invaluable and I know that I would have taken time off with work-related stress if I had not had the help and support from Catherine to deal with the pressure I was feeling. I also know that I have learnt valuable skills which will help me in years to come through these sessions and I feel that this service is fantastic for those who sincerely want to improve in any area of their life"
"I’m using the sessions to help drive self confidence as I’m keen to make career progression in QinetiQ and feel that previous confidence issues have held me back a bit. Also, as well as the hypnotherapy, the initial couple of sessions where I discussed about myself where really useful, Catherine was able to deliver some excellent life coaching in these sessions which I’ve used to devise a personal plan with some goals."
"My reasons for attending are to improve my performance at work and enable me to better-organise my time. As a result of these sessions, I am noticing improved concentration and greater productivity as I am less distracted by tasks that are competing for my time. This is particularly important for my job role and it is helping me to take on additional activities and responsibilities".
