The Emotional Vampire by Maddy Smith.

A poem to help those who have been involved with and recovering from a Narcissist


Toxic control

Is on the roll

He hears me

He sees me

He smells victory

The chase is on

For his toxic salvation.

She smells sweet

To his incomplete

His ego is fading

Her soul needs invading

To feed his dying soul

She must be in his control.

First stage

The love bomb seed

His direct hit

Feeds her internal need

She is the empath

Feeding the empty sociopath

He takes his time

To drink her soul

With his tales of woe

And no place to go

Day by day

More control

Will she ever emerge

From this deepening hole?

He makes her cry

She says goodbye

He comes back for more

She is

His revolving door

Until one day

Her hinges give way

She opens her eyes

To a hidden surprise

The man she knew

Was no longer there

Just an empty shell

With a desperate stare

The poison

He would spew

Was within him

Not you

Him, the damaged child

Destroyed and defiled

Using her goodness to revive

Attempting to survive

His own grief


Her love


Her life the hope

That kept him afloat

The narcissist feeds

On her internal needs

He gives no respite

To his internal bite

She bleeds empathy

He gives no sympathy

The narcissist is fed

He leaves

She feels dead

Mission accomplished.

Social Anxiety / Professional Confidence - Public Speaking / Fear of Flying

"I'm now able to perform tasks that I thought were impossible a month ago"

I've suffered from constant anxiety for as long as I can remember, particularly from social anxiety and fear of public speaking, to the point that my office jobs were no longer manageable and I was very close to fall deeply into depression. I had very little self-confidence, despite having progressed in my career and achieved many of my professional and personal goals. However, I got to a point in which I wasn't able to progress any further due to my the constant fear of being evaluated and criticised by others, which paralysed me and stopped me from speaking up and being more visible. My day to day prior to the sessions was absolutely controlled by my anxiety and lack of confidence due to past experiences, mainly during my childhood. Having done a number of therapies before (eMDR, CBT) I was sceptical at first, but I wanted to give hypnotherapy and the BAGC6 a go. After around 13 sessions I can say that I'm in a much better place than when I started. My constant anxiety has hugely decreased, and I'm now able to perform tasks that I thought were impossible a month ago, like giving a speech in front of my colleagues without having a panic attack or simply socialising with new people at a party. My perspective on things is now different and I've gained new confidence which allows me to speak and interact with others without fear. Maria has been great in understanding my issues and creating a very tailored treatment (hypnosis, eMDR, etc) to tackle these. She's always been very determined and a firm believer in a full recovery which has been very helpful, particularly in moments when I wanted to give up. She's also giving me tools and techniques that I can use to manage emotions and to stay focused (like auto-hypnosis) and I'm using these almost on a daily basis to continue building on my confidence and resilience. As per the fear of flying, this is something that I still need to test, but I'm confident that I will have also overcome it in the same way that I've beaten my anxiety disorder. I can only be grateful to Maria for all her help and for believing in me since day 1, and totally recommend her treatment!

Thanks so much!
