About me

I'm Dan. I am a friendly, highly experienced hypnotherapist, and NLP practitioner.  Unlike a lot of hypnotherapists I am also a Bachelors and Masters Graduate in psychology, studying the human mind for in excess of 7 years, so you can be confident that you are in the utmost professional hands.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Before I give you the answer to that, I’d like to start with what it’s not – stage hypnotism! At no point will you be out of control or able to be manipulated in any way. Some clients say that they find themselves experiencing a different, dreamlike state, others that they are fully aware throughout. There’s no ‘right’ response, just a willingness to engage in the process.

Think about the reason you’re here. Is it because the problem you are experiencing is inevitable, forced upon you? Or is it that there is some very strong programming going on? We are all programmed. Sorry if that shatters some illusions about absolute and total free will, but it’s just the simple truth, and this programming typically has its roots in your earliest childhood experiences. As powerful as the programming is though, the good news is it can be changed!

It’s all stored in your subconscious – the part of your mind that you can only recall experiencing in dreams or when you are very, very relaxed. So, to alter the programming, we have to talk directly to your subconscious and make alternative suggestions to change the behaviour / feeling you wish to deal with. That’s it really... Yes, there are a lot of techniques involved that have taken me extensive training and experience to master, but all you need to be concerned with is going with it, getting really nicely relaxed and for me to persuade your subconscious that what you are experiencing is not good for you. Now, of course, you know it isn't, but that's conscious knowledge, which rarely filters down into your subconscious, which is the element of your mind that operates the controls. This is why Hypnotherapy can be so much more effective than counselling alone, as it will deals with the problem at source.

What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)?

In my opinion, hugely exciting! The capability of the techniques I use to achieve instant results is not only evidenced in my own practice, but in those of practitioners the world over. As the term implies it uses language and the neurology of the brain (the way the wiring works) together with strong visualisation techniques to re-wire you! I am directly licensed by the world renowned Dr Richard Bandler, who developed the theory and techniques I use on a daily basis.

Think about having the ability to significantly reduce or eliminate pain in minutes; the ability to take a past trauma and put it somewhere else in your mind so that it doesn’t have the effect it’s having on you; the ability to pet a spider if you’d had a life-long phobia of them; the ability to make something you crave but is bad for you, disgusting; the ability to generate confidence, calm or indeed any feeling at will.

By using NLP alongside hypnotherapy, I can offer you a combination of powerful techniques not used by the majority of other hypnotherapists.

Here are just some of the issues I can help you with:

Some of my testimonials:

I had shoulder pain for three years and in that time have been constantly swallowing painkillers. You used a technique that worked like magic! Still pain-free four weeks later.  Thank you! S.S.

Dan has a wonderful therapy style. I feel at ease in his presence from start to finish. Highly recommend!!! L.B.

Using NLP he took negative memories from my past and to my absolute astonishment, I had to keep searching my mind to check but the situation surrounding them is so vague, it’s like they never even happened. S.C

Excellent therapy service! Definitely recommend. K.T.

I had been smoking, on and off, for 20 years. I’d had hypnosis before with slight results but always gone back. Dan performed both hypnosis and NLP on me and I can happily say I have not had a cigarette for 17 days. Something that astounded me, I’ve saved £153 in 2 and a half weeks!! Thank you Dan!! C.L.

Thank you Dan, I am truly grateful to be guided to have a couple of sessions with you. The shift and change I have experienced is tremendous! I like your approach, would recommend you to anyone. N.B.

Thank you so much! I actually slept this avo. No idea how you did that in less than half an hour. V.B. (Severe toothache).
