What Clients Say

I really appreciate it when my clients take the time to reach out to me following our sessions to tell me what they have achieved. Here’s what some of my clients have said.
Names and other identifiable details have been removed to preserve confidentiality. Such details can be made available to any regulatory body seeking to verify authenticity.

“I visited Derek approximately three months ago for hypnotherapy with the aim of losing weight. This was my first experience of hypnotherapy and I was unsure of how I would respond or indeed if I would lose weight. I found that Derek makes you feel completely at ease with the whole process. The hypnotic state is so relaxing allowing your subconscious mind to take on suggestions, in my case to lose weight, he also addressed confidence issues . I have had three appointments with Derek and I also have an audio cd to compliment the relaxation process at home.

To date I have lost a stone in weight without dieting just listening to the subconscious mind.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Derek and the hypnotherapy experience.”

“Derek, I just wanted to send this message to say thank you. Because of you, I am a stronger person.

I now have two little children and also now have my niece living with us after losing both my father-in-law and my sister-in-law in the last four months. Despite this being the craziest time of my life, I feel as though I am able to keep strong as you empowered me to.

It may, or may not, seem strange that I am still overweight but I can honestly say that it was my Dad’s issue much more than mine. Last year, after another major kick-off, I feel that we have finally moved on, or at least have agreed to draw a line under our previous problems. Again, because of you, I was able to sit down with Dad face-to-face and say what I needed to say.

Things are going well at work too. I will be returning to work, after maternity leave, in a more senior role.

Whilst I am sure I still have a way to go, and hope that our paths will cross again one way or another, I just wanted to make sure I had properly said thank you for everything.”

“I have visited Derek a number of times, and for a large range of problems. I have always been happy with the outcome. Derek has a knack for getting to the heart of the problem and finding the right tool or treatment to get to a positive outcome.

Most recently I have received treatment in order to be more assertive prior to a return to work; it has worked so well I have been able to overcome my previous anxiety and successfully manage my return working part-time.”

“I went to see Derek to give up smoking. He was very clear with me that I had to want to give up or hypnotherapy would not work for me. On this basis I was happy to proceed as I really wanted to be a non-smoker.

Derek explained the process to me, that he would distract my conscious mind and talk to my subconscious mind. I would be aware of what was happening but be completely relaxed.

Immediately after the session, I was not sure that anything had changed, but when I got into the car to drive home, I had no craving for a cigarette which was normally a trigger point for me. As the week progressed, I felt like I was wrapped in a warm blanket making me feel safe and protected with no need for a cigarette.

I have had a couple of difficult situations to deal with, where resorting to a cigarette would have been my first response but happily, I have not needed to smoke.

I have now been a non-smoker for five months and have not slipped. I had smoked for 44 years and loved it, but after one session with Derek and being really clear with myself that I wanted to be a non-smoker I have success.

I spoil myself regularly with the money I save which keeps me motivated and happy.



“When I first met Derek I was feeling lost in my career. I was questioning my decisions and my self-confidence was affected.

Derek helped me to understand why I was feeling that way. Through our sessions I found clarity.

I’m now loving my work everyday and feel really in touch with my own sense of purpose. Everything makes more sense and I can see where I want to go on the road ahead.

Thank you Derek! X”
