Patient feedback

I can’t explain how much value I have taken from Daniel’s rational emotive behaviour therapy. It was so incredibly useful for me and just completely relatable. He has been amazing and has truly helped me to change my life… Thank you. - Former day care patient

I’m a former journalist and writer, so I know a thing or two about stress, pressure and deadlines. I’ve been in practice, first as a hypnotherapist and then as a cognitive behavioural therapist, since 2004. People often value the clear, concise, solution-based frameworks offered by both cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and hypnotherapy. Over the years, I’ve helped many people manage their lifestyle and work-based problems more effectively or, even, let go of them completely.
