Relaxed and confident around needles and injections
After 39 years of dreading anything to do with needles, injections and especially fearing having to have a blood test I am very happy to have finally overcome this stressful and embarrassing problem!
I had previously visited 3 other hypnotherapists (unsuccessfully) over the years to get over the totally irrational faints and vomiting that would happen every time in the past I'd had to have vaccinations.
However, this morning I calmly went for my first ever blood test feeling relaxed, confident and able and to do this. Even with nearly an hours wait (that would have had me in bits before) I didn't have any of the old nerves, nausea or fainting and just chatted through the whole procedure. The only rush I felt was when I realised I'd done it!
Thank you Dan you have helped me where others have failed to!

No more phobia of eating in unfamiliar places
Over a number of years, I have suffered with anxiety and linked to this a phobia of eating in unfamiliar places. I had previously had CBT through a separate route to help my general anxiety but I continued to struggle with eating in unfamiliar restaurants and around unfamiliar people. I did some research and stumbled across Dan’s website and decided to give hypnotherapy a go.
Over a number of sessions, Dan started to change my way of thinking and I could start to see a difference. I didn’t feel myself finding excuses not to go out and didn’t get so flustered when a menu was given to me. I now feel able to agree to go out or even round someone’s house and happily eat without mentally exhausting myself from worry. My quality of life has much improved due to this. Dan is extremely personable and friendly; he makes you feel at ease and is supportive. I would highly recommend Dan if you are hoping to make a change in your life but require that little extra support.

My horse riding confidence has returned
I contacted Dan after having a couple of falls from my horse. I had, initially, thought that I had got my confidence back after the falls but I began to dread riding and found that even handling him on the ground was becoming an issue. Horses are expensive animals to keep and I knew that for my well being and his that I had to make a decision. I was on the point of selling when I sought Dan's help.
After 6 sessions my confidence has returned and my horse and I have a happy partnership. Another unexpected side effect is that I no longer get stressed in meetings at work as my confidence has returned. So a winner all round. Many thanks Dan.

I can drive on the motorway again
I Visited Dan after developing a phobia which concerned my driving. I cannot remember the exact time or date when my issues started occurring, nor can I remember a reason of this, however I finally visited Dan as I felt my problem was getting worse and it needed to be dealt with before it got too out of control.
My phobia started with driving on the A14, I kept feeling anxious whenever I used this road, and the anxiety got to a point when one day I decided to go an alternative route rather than go on any major roads or motorways.
This meant that destinations took a lot longer to reach, and this effected a lot of issues including work, however all journeys would be made in this way, or I would find an excuse not to drive.
As I had let the anxiety take hold, this then started affect me on other roads until eventually, I started becoming anxious on all busy roads. This is when I decided I need to see Dan.
Dan took me through a variety of techniques to solve the issues, including hypnotherapy, breathing exercises, calming techniques and training exercises to be done in my own time to combat the issues.
Gradually the anxiety that was present on the minor road started to ease, but I still would not drive on the A14.
After a few more sessions Dan finally got me driving on the A14, and although there was a small amount of anxiety present, this eased as I drove.
I am now at the stage where I can drive on the motorway again, and the process gets easier every time I drive.

No fear at dentist at all
For the last 40 years I have had a fear of any kind of dental treatment, even telephoning to make an appointment would fill me with dread. After once again going through all the fear and anxiety of just having a check up, I decided that I needed some help.I could not face the two appointments that were required, so I contacted Dan.His techniques have been so helpful and have completely changed how I feel about going.
I have now had the dental appointments and was amazed at how calm and relaxed I felt during the lead up to both appointments, whilst sitting in the waiting room and once in the dentists chair, having the work done. I had no fear at all.Amazing when I think how I would of felt before, so Dan I cannot thank you enough.

Life long phobia of dogs lifted
My 9 year old daughter has had a life long phobia of dogs. After 4 sessions with Dan, her confidence around dogs is amazing. We now have our own puppy and when other dogs come over to say hello on walks, she is more than happy to join in. Thank you so much Dan.
