I have come to Denise with the hope that she would help me lose weight through hypnotherapy.

I was far from imagining that I had so much on my chest and in my brain which was one of the key factors in my weight gain.

She helped me clear my mind and learn how to let go of things that are not in my control.

I have come to realise that I no longer eat my feelings and problems and have developed other mechanisms of coping such as compartmentalisation and self-awareness.

She also provided me with some guidance in my relationships which helped me regain my self-confidence and allowed me to trust my voice and choices.

The road to my objectives is still long but I trust that my new mind-set is the key to my success.


When I arrived to start counselling with Denise I arrived a very broken lady. I had struggled for 17 years with fertility ups and downs and over the last 7 years trying to struggle coming to the terms of infertility.
The idea of not being able to have what I always wanted had taken over the whole of my life and definitely my emotions. 
My self love was rock bottom and I was slowly turning into a person who I just didn’t want to be. I had spent so long being ‘sad’ I had no escape and it became a habit. I think it’s safe to say I didn’t even know who I was anymore. I felt I had no place as a woman in this world and I didn’t ‘fit in’. 
I have recently received news that I will have an operation that will ensure no ‘miracles’ will ever happen and this sent me into ‘panic’
My anxiety hit the highest it had ever been and I had to act so I could be ‘free’ as I owed this to myself. 
I arrived for my first session one broken lady but seriously left a very ‘free’ lady. I went in one door and left by another but this left me calm, at peace and free. 
The time Denise has spent with me has supported me to be honest with feeling ‘safe’. 
No one to judge me or to have an opinion. This subject is a very hard one there is little to none support groups and a very taboo subject. It’s either something people blog about or just don’t discuss so I found it hard to where to go. 
What I also have found helpful is the weekly challenges that has helped me come to terms with what’s happened and I can honestly say now ‘I am a woman, I have a family and I have a future that I am looking forward to.
I am also finding me!!’ 
I couldn’t recommend Denise more. She is an angel with such a caring heart and I will always be grateful but most importantly I have found a place to feel safe to be me. 
I have seen my sessions with Denise like a hair cut. I just see a difference in me but so are my family and friends.
Thank you Denise

I found Denise to be extremely caring and helpful. She listened to me and understood what I was ‘not saying’ and recognised the area where I needed help which was not what I had gone to see her with. 

She is absolutely amazing in her integrity and belief in you and that you can achieve what you want.  A very caring natural person who you take to immediately.

 A,G  (2018)


I cannot thank you enough for starting me on a positive path about myself which no-one else has ever been able to do.
  You are fantastic

Thankyou   (Jo C ) 2017

"Just wanted to say Fantastic The help I have received from Mind2Body counselling.
I was unable to go out having suffered from panic attacks.
 After 4 sessions with Denise I am pleased to say things are getting better I am going out and even beginning 
to socialise slowly with friends .
The counselling I have received from Mind2Body has helped me regain my life back .
I am still receiving counselling sessions.
I would like to recommend Denise at Mind2Body " Ellie 2017

This was my first Hot Stone massage and it was extremely relaxing
The therapy room is lovely and calming my overall experience was excellent (K)  Nov 2017


At Mind2Body I have found it to be a pleasant experience and Denise is so friendly and makes me feel very relaxed
I have had various treatments and therapy at Mind2Body and the experience has been excellent (Trish) Nov 2016



I have struggled with my skin for over 20 years.

Scaring on my cheeks and really oily skin through acne in my previous years.

I have tried almost everything all types of foundation in the attempt to cover my problem skin.

My skin was so oily the foundation would slide off by the end of the day it was all cracked and shiny.

I was at the point of giving up when I came across Mind2Body who was offering dermabration and chemical peels.

I was sceptical at first.

After my first dermabration facial and chemical peel I immediately noticed an improvement in my skin.

At Mind2Body Denise made me feel really relaxed and took the time to explain everything to me.

I have now had 3 dermabration facials and 3 chemical peels and I can honestly say , my skin looks fantastic My scars have faded and I no longer have oily breakouts .

It’s unbelievable I no longer need to wear foundation to cover my skin.

I can’t express how happy I am “Mind2Body” is a really relaxed environment and Denise makes you feel totally relaxed she went through the whole procedure and took time to listen to my problems and fears.

I can’t recommend “Mind2Body” enough ….really exceptional.

I myself will continue going to “Mind2Body” to see Denise for year to come

“As the Academic & Programs Director of Amistad Institute – Costa Rica, I had the opportunity to interact with Mrs. Denise Presland on a daily basis while she carried out her community development volunteer work with our institution.

While her peers chose to undertake luxury or funny vacations, Denise chose to work with our organization, which is involved in volunteer projects that help people and children in need in Costa Rica, among many other things.  Denise combined and applied her knowledge of the English language and her personal passion for volunteering and teaching to accomplish her goals and proceeded to exceed all project coordinators’ expectations.  Denise brought much enthusiasm to this project, paid attention to every minute project details and kept the needs of the children with which she worked on the top of her mind.

Denise was involved in every aspect of the project, she made a very reliable impression and was willing to learn and get to know something about new cultural habits, she enriched the classes by helping other students, she respected the rules in a foreign society and did her best to participate with it, she managed new challenges very well -during her time in Costa Rica.”
– Marco Bolanos, Academic & Programs Director, Amistad Institute  2015



“Denise has now been volunteering with St Mungo’s Broadway for over a month. She approaches her client-facing work conscientiously and compassionately, which makes her very approachable and easy to be around. She has facilitated our weekly resident meetings, which gives our clients an opportunity to voice their concerns about the places in which they live as well as giving feedback about the support they receive. She has had 1:1 sessions with a few of our clients experiencing mental ill health, learning disabilities and addiction, which have had very positive outcomes.

Denise is a very personable and understanding member of the team. Her enthusiasm and passion has been instrumental to the good work that she has been achieving with our clients.”
– Emily Williams, Coordinator, St Mungo’s Broadway Bristol – Complex Needs Services 2015


“Denise is currently working along side six elder care ladies with disabilities and physical needs. She is spending her time making use of her counselling skills as well as doing holistic and therapeutic approaches with the ladies, including reminiscence to which the ladies all thoroughly enjoy.

Denise is confident and is at ease with the ladies within the home, she has a very good manner and the ladies already look forward to her coming in.”
