Some client reviews :
Would just like to vouch for davids hypnotherapy iv been to see him a few times now, one I'm talking about now is confidence issues, thinking I'd fail uni, and I haven't! Just got my final overall marks confirmed and my marks have improved by 30 percent and I don't think I would have been if weren't for help from david! People are quick to assume it doesn't work, not many people give it a chance! So if anyone is debating trying it do it  I can vouch from personal experience, anyone wanting any further feedback feel free to msg me its thanks to david and his work I now have a foundation degree in mental health

I would 100%recommend this hypnotherapy by David. I was at my complete worst and I honestly though there was no hope I suffered from severe anxiety at its nastiness. David helped completely I am so much better. The hypnotherapy is brilliant. It is a warm and welcoming place and I don't know what I would have done without it xx

I highly recommend Darwen Hypnotherapy Clinic, I have excellent personal experience

Hi David

Just wanted to say thanks again for yesterday and I managed to get out into town on my own at lunchtime without panicking! So relieved I am making progress so quickly I really didnt think it would work this fast.

If you are wanting to stop smoking then read on: I went to see David on the 23rd of October,since then I haven't had a cigarette,or wanted one,I am amazed at how well it has worked for me - I am recommending him to all of my friends.

Had my first session today, very easy to talk to, felt so relaxed. My migraine has gone with just one session, after taking paracetamol for 3 weeks for a migraine which wernt doing anything for me. Thank you David, I would highly recommend! Definitely coming again very soon. Thank you for helping me.

Absolutely fantastic, thankyou so much David you have helped my daughter immensely. She is able to now get back to normality xx
