A sample of testimonials:

Matilda - Anxiety                                                                                                                      
Thank you so much for your help, I came to see Mark with severe anxiety and I am now back to my normal happy self! It has changed my life, so thank you again.

Kay - Children, Anxiety & Trauma                                                                                   Ollie has hugely improved. He is able to go out the house to school now without anxiety. He listens to the recording you did for him which also gives him peace of mind and reassurance that he is ok

Michelle - Anxiety & Trauma Resolution
You have helped me to get my independence back, I was stuck in such a small circle of area and was becoming depressed! After hypnotherapy, EMDR and someone to talk to I gained confidence again and I am now recovered, going to new places with the help of techniques and relaxation CDs I was given. Couldn't thank you enough.

Bill - Weight Reduction
Hi Mark
Just a word of grateful thanks for the help you gave me in my weight loss programme. After 4 sessions I felt really powerfully motivated to lose the excess weight and get fitter. Before our sessions, I had tried them all, Weight Watchers, Slimming World, even the Atkins Diet, all with varying degrees of success. After a while, the weight just started yo increase again.
Thanks to you, Ive lost in excess of 25kg and still going.You helped me to empower myself and motive myself to do it.
For anyone out there who has tried them all, I cannot recommend Mark enough. In th ewords of a famous sportswear brand, JUST DO IT!

Sarah - Fear of Flying
I had treatment for my fear of flying. I used to hyperventilate when flying but after seeing Mark for hypnotherapy I now actually enjoy flying and can book holidays and look forward to them free from my old fear.

Katie - Fear of Needles and Hospitals
I went to Mark with a fear of anything medical, most of all having an injection. My therapy was in a nice, quiet space and wasnt rushed, Without my therapy I wouldnt have been able to move on and have medical help if needed or gone on to have my 2 little boys.

Lorraine - Performance
Hi Mark, its Lorraine, just a quick text to let you know I played really well at Butlins and enjoyed it. I really did feel calm before and during, just a little bit of an edge, all went great, thank you, we got a medal and I now feel fantastic. Without your help I wouldve backed out (Cornet Player, Brass Band)

George - Children, Exam Anxiety
A huge thanks for helping Alex with his nerves about 11+ exam. He passed it with flying colours. He slept like a log night before and came out smiling afterwards

Jan - Child, Seperation Anxiety
I would like to let you know India has been away on a school trip for two nights, she had a fantastic time, I'm so proud of her and she is also in her own bed all night every night, we still have occasional wobbles but words can't describe how grateful and happy I am to you
