Fast, efficient, thorough and polite. The best opticians in Haverfordwest, wouldn't go anywhere else.

Very professional and friendly. Moved to them after being treated by another corporate high street optician like an item on the production line. Maggs is where you should go. I use them for spectacles and contact lenses. Can't praise them enough, especially Mr. Devereux.

I had my eyes tested at a different location, but was looking for a new pair of frames. A staff member took the time to find the glasses I was looking for at the right price, and I love them! They were also extremely quick with preparing my glasses and getting them ready for me to pick up - it was less than a few hours! I was very impressed and am extremely happy with my glasses - I will definitely go again!

The best place to get your eyes tested loads of glasses in all prices to choose from great and helpful staff

I am so greatfull to Lowrie for helping me with my bad back I highly recommend if u got any back pain go and see her thank u so much hun xx xx

Simply brilliant! Was a bit dubious beforehand but had such bad pain in my hip and I could not walk so I thought I'd give her a go. Absolutely fantastic. After a chat and a basic examination she diagnosed "Maigns syndrome" - basically inflamed muscles and nerves in part of the back. She did a deep massage, and whilst a bit sore she was careful and considerate the whole time. The following day I was a bit sore, but all the pain had gone. Superb! Dont be put off by scare stories etc, there was no bone clicking, just careful thorough massage and real professional knowledge. I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you Lowrie!

Margaret Williams Clinical Hypnotherapist

I was apprehensive when I first approached Margaret for help but needn't have worried. She put me at ease and my initial feelings of embarrassment were short lived. After a short course of three sessions, I have been able to fully return to normal life again with more confidence and have already made up for time lost last year.

Oliver at MindMatters Hypnotherapy

Riverside Arcade, 7 Bridge St, Haverfordwest SA61 2AL, UK – 01437 767744

Oliver is the best hypnotherapist I've ever been too and I've seen many over the years. I would most definitely recommend Oliver to help cure or solve your state of mind. I also would like to thank Oliver for sorting my head out...brilliant work. Clive

I had a couple of sessions with Oliver for something that had taken a hold over my life and nobody else had managed to help me process and sort out. I was extremely nervous of hypnosis and very sceptical. Oliver is a great guy who soon puts you at ease. I loved how he managed to take a different look at my problems and give me some insight into stuff I'd never realised. After the main hypnotherapy I was actually blown away by the results!!! I had no idea what was going to happen. I am delighted with the outcome. I would recommend Oliver and hypnotherapy to everyone with any problem at all. Thank you Oliver :)
