About me

Clinical Hypnotherapist covering all general health, wellbeing and performance improvements. Specialising in both Pain reprocessing therapy (P.R.T) and trauma/ low mood and anxiety support.

Have you been struggling with your relationship, has work become challenging and unfulfilling? are you suffering with symptoms of panic, anxiety or depression?  Maybe you are thinking about giving up smoking, managing you weight goals or wanting to improve your performance at the gym to increase your physical health. These are just some of the many reasons my clients choose to come and see me, of which 98% are by recommendation.

You don't need to spend lots of time and money with long term talking therapies. Your subconscious mind is far more powerful than you think and I can teach you how to harness this power quickly to achieve so much more than you could ever believe.

Clients are always recommended to see me because of my experience and dynamic approach.
Often my clients start to see and feel improvements in just a few sessions.

Who am I?
I'm the Founder of the revolutionary Agile Change Solution Therapy™ which has helped transform many of my client's lives particularly where pain management and trauma play a role. I'm a Person-centered Solution Focused Therapist and Clinical Hypnotherapist, combining multiple evidence-based techniques and integrative approaches all tailored towards achieving the goals of my clients.

Having successfully worked with thousands of people within the mental health sector for over 20 years, I understand the power of purpose, structure and recovery. I can help you uncover why your mind and body respond the way they do, and what is needed to improve your life, health and wellbeing.

I only utilise evidenced based approaches and have received groundbreaking specialist training  here in the UK and USA for fast results.
I want my clients to get the maximum rewards in the most efficient time.

With my support, we can take the time to focus on YOU!

Information about health conditions (*)

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.

"Darren was recommended by a colleague to help with trauma and anxiety, as life was unbearable and not worth living. Darren taught me that it wasn't that I didn't want to live anymore...I just didn't know HOW to live!
I had one session where he done something called 'Rewind'. I was really nervous, but after the session I felt absolute relief from my PTSD. He conducted one more session, and although I can still remember what happened to me, I no longer have any strong emotional reactions to this...really weird but amazing.! He literally saved my life and both me and my husband as so grateful"

"Darren understands mental health and knew exactly what I needed to regain my confidence. I had 4 sessions and was provided an audio recording afterwards to reinforce the therapy..amazing!"

"5 sessions and I gave up smoking cigarettes and smoking cannabis daily after 30 years. I genuinely didn't think I could do both after trying everything...!"

"Really friendly service. Was skeptical at first, then after 1st session I felt surprisingly good and my anxiety levels dropped a bit. After 4 sessions my confidence started to really increase, my constant low mood passed and I can actually sleep! I really hope this feeling lasts. Recommended. Tracy"

"Met Darren in Weybridge for weight loss and emotional eating. After 6 sessions I lost just under 2kg with his advice and hypnotherapy. It's the only thing that has worked for me so far well happy, top guy*****
