"I found my sessions and treatment with Damon uplifting and positively life changing. I finally freed myself of life events that I had been carrying around for years and have now, with the help of Damon, put myself on a path that enables me to start achieving my goals.
I was of course dubious about using hypnotherapy, but Damon guided me through the sessions in such a way that I started to look forward to coming back and have adopted some of the techniques to use at home whenever I feel like it.
My experience has been wholly positive and I would recommend it to anyone who truly wants to make permanent changes to their life." (T, ex-emotional wine drinker, Bucks)
Training, qualifications & experience
When looking for a therapist, it is important that you feel confident that the person you are dealing with is qualified to help you. So you should ask, are they professionally trained and are they linked to a governing body or a regulator? Plus, are they fully insured?
I have been professionally trained by experienced, qualified practitioners and awarded a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy by Mindworks Therapy School.
I am also a member of the National Council of Psychotherapists.
I am registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register and have been awarded their industry-based qualification, the General Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice.
I am also registered with the Department of Health voluntary regulator for complementary medicine in the UK, the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.
I have been trained in all aspects of hypnotherapy, suggestion therapy, NLP, parts therapy, psychoanalysis, mindfulness and counselling.
I ensure that I receive regular consultation from a qualified and highly experienced supervisor to ensure that my practice complies with industry regulation.
I also have full liability insurance.
On a personal note...
Sometimes it might feel like it is impossible to change. I mean really change.
I used to think that way. That was until I experienced therapy for myself and witnessed the transformational effect it had upon me.
I became a therapist because I want to help other people to overcome seemingly impossible life problems. To be the person that they are meant to be. To this day I am still amazed by the work my clients put in and the results they achieve. The relief and transformation is incredible. And you deserve it too.
I have been in business for over 20 years, starting out in advertising, then IT and Telecoms. When I am not treating clients, I enjoy writing songs in my band, going to the gym and sailing.

How much does it cost?
An initial consultation is free, which lasts 30 minutes.
I charge £70 per treatment session which lasts 50 minutes.
Smoking cessation is £150 for a 2 hour session.
All sessions are conducted in person.
I accept cash and cheque as payment for sessions.
A typical session can include different techniques, including hypnotherapy, NLP and counselling. I will always discuss your treatment with you to make sure you are not only comfortable with it but are also prepared to give 100% to your half of the work.
Contact me if you have more specific requirements on 07702 911787.
How many times do I need to see you?
I always intend to achieve the best possible result in the shortest number of sessions. Some issues like phobias may take between 2 or 3 sessions. Other treatments take longer. Smoking cessation is only one session. Everyone is unique so it depends on your own personal circumstances, the important thing to remember is that you get the result you are looking for.
How does the free initial consultation work?
By taking up the offer of an informal consultation you can meet your therapist without any obligation, ask them how hypnotherapy works, ask about concerns you may have, all in complete confidentiality. This leaves you with the choice of what you would like to do; whether you want to proceed with hypnotherapy, book another time for your session or simply have some time to consider whether hypnotherapy is right for you.
Will I lose control in hypnosis?
No. You are always in control of your own mind. Nobody can make you do or say anything that you don’t want to to. You will not give away secrets or lose reasoning. Clinical hypnosis is not the same as stage hypnosis which is used for entertainment purposes.
Do I need a GP referral?
In most cases, no. However, after meeting you at the free initial consultation, if I feel this is necessary I will let you know that I need you to get a referral from your GP first. And I will never contact a GP without your permission.
How confidential is it?
Completely confidential. Only you, me and (sometimes) your GP need know about your treatment. No family, partners, friends or colleagues are entitled to know if I have even ever spoken to you.
Where do you see patients?
I operate out of my private home practice in Cumnor Hill, Oxon. There is no issue in parking here.
I can also arrange to treat clients at the Oxford Natural Health Centre in Iffley if a more central Oxford appointment is required.
Do you have a cancellation policy?
Any appointment that is not cancelled 48 hours beforehand will be charged at the full rate.
