client experiences

Maggie worked with our 9 year old son to help him overcome the psychological effects of bullying, which for him were causing a lot of anxiety and had chipped away at his confidence and self-belief.


The results of Maggie’s work now speak for themselves, Finlay is now bursting with confidence, his head is held high and his ambitions are even higher. He recently took it upon himself to open a boxing gym for young children (6-8yr) in my shed, as the gym, he attends only caters for age 9 and over. This is proving to be quite popular with the local children, he has 3 clients so far.   


I would like to note that Maggie went out of her way to research the information needed to ensure the help she gave Finlay was correct for him and ultimately successful.

After feeling like I’d lost myself after life events and lockdown, I worked back to myself again with TLC and Maggie’s patience in working out how the process would work best for me. During one of our sessions together, I hit a moment of realisation of a real change in myself and seen the progress I’d made. What a difference!


I worked with Maggie on a 10 week Life Coaching programme recently. I wasn't looking for a complete overhaul of my life but rather a fine-tuning of certain areas and a desire to achieve a better balance in my life between a very busy work and family life. I found it to be a fantastic and really helpful experience  which gave me the chance to genuinely "step off the wheel" for a little while each week. Maggie was brilliant at helping me focus on what really matters to me and advised of different techniques for relaxation and focus. Whilst this isn't a magic-wand for all of life's problems her friendly and understanding nature made for a great and rare opportunity to reflect and re-focus which was really valuable for me.


I was lucky enough to come across Maggie through a friend's recommendation during a very difficult time in my life. I was struggling with confidence, direction and perspective, all of which was affecting my ability to enjoy life and succeed at work. After working through Maggie's Transformational Life Coaching, I have experienced a level of clarity and understanding that few techniques had previously managed to achieve. While I found the material similar to other therapies and counselling out there, Maggie's approach was enlightening, refreshing, forthright, and her insight and knowledge into the human personality was nothing short of remarkable. Everything that we worked through I was able to take into the real world and apply to everyday challenges, so I ended the TLC not reliant on another form of therapy to get me through the day, but confident that I had uncovered new insights into myself and those around me; and a sense that no matter what came at me, I would be able to navigate it and learn from it in new and exciting ways. Thank you Maggie!


I first made contact with Maggie after struggling with stress and anxiety caused by an unexpected life event. I was initially sceptical about what I could gain from sessions with Maggie however I feel I've come a long way since then. Maggie put me at ease and I was able to talk comfortably about my struggles. She used several techniques like hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming. With time I was able to utilise benefits of the techniques she used. Maggie is a warm and approachable person and made me feel able to be open and honest about what I was going through which helped her to tailor the sessions to have a biggest impact on me. Overall I found the sessions beneficial and I would recommend Maggie to others.


I felt I was at a point in my life where I had to review how I had dealt with certain situations over the last few years and was recommended Maggie through a friend. After a really welcoming introductory chat with Maggie we agreed to progress with the Transformational Life Coaching. I was very opened minded about this and didn’t set specific goals, I had been dubious in the past of life coaching but this was more about understanding myself and why I do the things I do. The 8/10 Week course included some hypno and NLP which was also a new experience for me. The coaching allowed me to speak openly about myself and reflect on the way I do, view and think about things. I have already noticed differences to how I handle situations which is very empowering.


The NLP has helped with a number of things that were troubling me, most significant my fear of heights which I now no longer have.


Speaking with Maggie once a week was an absolute joy and we instantly bonded even over video call. I would highly recommend the coaching for anyone wanting to take a bit of a step back and reflect on their life.


Although I am only at the beginning of my journey with Maggie, I can already see results after just a few weeks.


One of the many positives of working with her is that she offers an individual, personalised service. She has taken the time to learn about me as an individual and as an athlete, and she has been willing and able to work with me on issues that I am personally encountering in my sport. Maggie is solution focused, offering a wide range of therapies, techniques and methods that may be tailored to suit individual needs and preferences. It is clear that she is invested in my progress, because every session involves a discussion of progress and feedback. She has made several helpful suggestions that I am already able to incorporate into my training routine.


One thing I really appreciate is that we have been able to work on larger overarching issues as well as smaller ones. At all times, Maggie has been able to offer proactive solutions that are easy to implement.


I have always been a bit sceptical about speaking to someone when it came to how I felt and I used to bottle everything up. When Maggie and Mental Performance Training came to Lochend to offer services, I was apprehensive at first but I thought I would give it a go and I'm glad I did as it's the best decision I've ever made.


Not only do I try and use Maggie's techniques within boxing it has also helped build me the confidence and given me a more positive attitude when it comes to being in the ring and having the self belief required to achieve the goals I have set.


The thing I think that makes Maggie stand out from all the others within this industry is that she genuinely cares and when I've had really bad days she is only a phone call away to help support me and for that I am truly grateful.


I found my session with Maggie very positive. I had been struggling with some issues at work that were making me feel very stressed. I found that even after a single session I felt able to view the situation that was causing me stress from a different perspective. It helped to re-frame the issue. 


I found Maggie very easy to talk to and found her approach very calming and supportive. Not sure how the technique works, but the main thing is it does!


I recently had a NPL session with Maggie. I wanted to do this because I was still holding onto some stress and anxiety from last year. Maggie used a sub modalities technique, which I would highly recommend for anyone who is suffering from any form of stress or anxiety. It is all about reducing the thoughts in your mind until they don’t matter anymore or don’t affect you.


Maggie is excellent and delivers the sessions in a very calm and professional manner. I fully intend to go back to Maggie for more sessions, however I already feel a marked improvement in my mindset.


If you are thinking about trying out any of Maggie’s techniques then I would definitely say go for it.


Suffering from stress and anxiety left me in a very fragile mental state. I was offered counselling through my GP to which I gratefully attended, however it was only a 6 week course and although I was starting to make some headway I felt that I needed something more, that’s when I found out about NLP with Maggie. I didn’t know much about NLP before attending my sessions but I can honestly say it has had a huge impact on me.


Maggie provided a safe and welcoming environment that immediately put me at ease and felt that I could really open up. There was no rush, everything at my own pace with Maggie guiding me all the way. Maggie’s knowledge and calm and gentle approach has made me realise my self worth, my potential, my identity.


Maggie you are an inspiration to me and I can’t wait to start my next journey of Life Coaching with you. You have changed my mindset and made me believe in myself and that I can achieve whatever I put my mind to.

I sought help from Maggie as I was going through a bit of a difficult time in my life. I’d got stuck in a rut and didn’t know which way to turn. I was beating myself up and had lost confidence. I also had some stress in my life which was not good for my mental health.


Maggie worked with me using NLP and hypnotherapy. I had never tried any of these methods before so it was all new to me and I didn’t know what to expect. I went in with an open mind and just hoped for even a little bit of a positive outcome.


I can honestly say that the outcome was just amazing. I walked in to see Maggie in a very bad way, highly stressed, low in confidence and very emotional. I came out like a different person. I can’t exactly explain how or what she did but whatever it was has changed things hugely for me. Maggie was non-judgemental and did not pry but just left me to decide how much or how little I told her about my problems. I felt very comfortable with her and at no time felt under any pressure. The stress lifted almost immediately and I am slowly getting my confidence back that I once had.


If you are feeling low or down, lost or lacking self-belief or confidence I would highly recommend Maggie Sheridan-Bruce to help you find your way and get back on track in life.

For the past 8 years, after the death of a close family member, Ive been dealing with anxiety.  If your feeling lost, unsure, nervous or thoughts are convincing you otherwise, I urge you to take that first step like I did. With each session, you will find yourself in the safe and kindest company as your guide.  Never did I feel silly or judged,  Maggie was extremely professional, caring & patient & passionate about her craft. 


Thank you Maggie, Im feeling more and more like my old self again xxx


Had the absolute pleasure of meeting with this wonderful professional lady and would highly recommend Mags for therapy & guidance. Maggie listens very carefully to everything you say and deals with every aspect empathically, she then tailors your therapy to what is best suited to you.  This has now enabled me to approach matters from a different angle which is hugely beneficial so that I can now maintain a sense of control.  After my sessions with Mags which included Hypnosis Therapy, which was wonderful, I left feeling very relaxed and calm and with Mags therapy toolkit in my head, able to move forward from a particular type of anxiety.
If anybody is considering therapy and guidance with Mags I would say that you have nothing to loose but plenty to gain.
After a series of tragic life events, I could not move forward due to mental health problems.  After Life Coaching with Maggie, I can move forward and see a clearer better future.  Highly recommended.
I went to see Mags for NLP sub modalities as I was going through a really stressful time which was causing me to feel really anxious. Mags immediately put me at ease.
She explained how it all worked, what would happen & the process. It was such a calming experience which is ironic as I was going through a really stressful time that we talked about. The process of talking through it - visualising it, the sound, colour etc really helped me. It was so powerful, the mind is so powerful & Mags really helped me see how I could change my thoughts & helped me to disassociate from it all.
Before seeing Mags, I can only describe my feelings of anxiety as a big ball in my stomach that was there constantly - sometime I noticed it more than others. After seeing Mags it was completely gone. I could've believe how powerful it was and how much she had helped me. I cannot recommend Mags enough. It made such a huge difference to my life.
If you are considering going to see Mags - don't waste your time thinking about - just do it!!!
