Relaxed and confident at interview
I came to see you for help with my interview anxiety and confidence, and with a history of getting overwhelmed by nerves on the day so I didn't perform.
Our session was great, amazing actually, I carried a sense of calm with me as I walked out and it was not diminished by the chaos that met me when I got home. I managed to sort all this, do more interview prep and then get to sleep and get a reasonable night’s rest.
Still felt calm in the morning, my brain kept bringing up (great) examples of things I could use in the interview. I then went in – and it was amazing. I really took control, stayed calm, thought of relevant examples, smiled and was clear in my communication. I ‘lived’ my visualisation – kept seeing it clearly and moving towards it.
I came out of the (hour and a half, doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun!) interview with a smile on my face and when people asked how it had gone I replied “ really well” – never felt like that before! Two days later one of the managers who had interviewed me and was in charge of the recruitment, called me into her office to tell me that, unfortunately I hadn’t got the job – BUT she then gave me a list of gushing feedback that meant I was grinning and felt immensely proud of myself despite not getting the job.
Basically I was interviewed by two people who have known me for years, but she said I managed to shock them – I met the bar for getting the post – excelled it on some questions and I could not have done any more than I did. They were hugely impressed with my attitude and answers and surprised how much I had changed – basically I did myself proud and FINALLY nailed an interview. She even asked me what my secret was and I told her - hypnotherapy! She was sceptical but I told her if she wanted to try it I know someone I can HIGHLY recommend!
I don’t think thank you quite cuts it, but thank you so much. I know that I did a lot to help myself and some of the specific direction I took was thanks to my mentor here at work, but the execution of all of that work only worked so effectively because you managed to get me to a point where I was relaxed and confident enough to get all of it across to the interviewers – the bit about stuff coming up to the top of my mind as I needed it actually happened – I could feel it! So thank you so much – it made all the difference

It’s like having the old me back
Why try NLP? From the outside to everyone else i was happy, successful and where i wanted to be but inside i was insecure, had no confidence in my own opinion, no self esteem and thought i would always get it wrong so why try???? I realized things had to change and luckily i had friends who had been to see Dan and recommended him to me.
After only 3 meetings with Dan i began to feel different and began to notice little changes in the way I thought and behaved, further down the road it is like having the old me back everything that used to bother me before now seems trivial and I can see the positive in things. If you were to ask me should you go and see Dan and do NLP I would say to you what do you have to lose and if it is everything that is holding you back and bringing you down you have answered your own question!!!

Addressed my issues with confidence, self belief and motivation
I originally started working with Dan to address my issues with confidence, self belief and motivation. After a few sessions, some of which very emotional, we really turned a corner and I can honestly say that I have never looked back.
I compete at an amateur level in body building and Dan really helped me develop and maintain the focus, determination and motivation to push through my training, especially when the going got tough. I was able to approach my qualifier with the self belief and confidence to perform be at my peak on stage.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Dan to anyone who is looking to make a positive change in their life

I don’t worry what people think or about meeting people
I no longer tend to reflect on things like I used to, and if I do it's normally short lived and doesn't produce a bad feeling; I don't tend to worry over meetings with people; I don't worry what people think and if I am worried about something it is now short lived; I don't mind going out places on my own and I tend to find that I don't upset myself when I'm on my own. Thank you very much, you've been a great help.

I have overcome self-doubts
Dan has worked wonders in helping me make sense of my own reactions to events. With his help I have overcome self-doubts which were making it very difficult for me to make rational, objective decisions about my career. I find his understanding of how the human mind works quite incredible, with his continuing help I no longer think I can achieve things, I know I can achieve them. Thanks Dan!

Combated fear of failing my exams
Was originally dreading the thought of my final exams, because of self confidence and a fear of failing. But Dan taught me how to combat these fears and show that I'm stronger, smarter and braver than I ever thought I was before.

Increased confidence with public speaking
I went to Dan with a fear of public speaking, and a best man speech looming on the horizon. After several sessions, including general therapy, hypnosis and NLP, and using some simple but useful techniques Dan showed me, I was able to calm my nerves and managed to perform on the day. I also have a generally more positive outlook and increased confidence in day to day things. Thanks Dan!

Confidence, self belief and positivity batteries recharged
I first visited Dan back in Dec 2011, to see if he could help ‘ straighten my brain out’. Previously to seeing Dan, I was normally such a confident person, but life had delivered a few hard knocks over the years and my confidence, self belief and positivity were at an all time low. I didn’t want to resort to pills, so sought a holistic method to sort my issues out.
I found Dan after googling 'NLP' and to be honest I haven’t looked back. I recall my first session with Dan and being hyper critical of what I considered to be mumbo jumbo, I remember saying to him ‘ so is this like voodoo magic then?’ Well to be honest, it kind of is.......in that I have no idea how it works, but frankly I don’t care, it just does.
Yes, I still have bad days when negative thoughts creep in, but unlike before, these thoughts are fleeting and always replaced by thoughts and feelings of positivity. Dan has helped me regain the person who I thought I had lost and now helps me with my future goals – I see him once every few weeks to top up my positive batteries and would whole heartly recommended him.
