What People Say

Some words from a few successful hypnotherapy clients

I began working as a hypnotherapist in 2004 and since then have helped thousands of people to lose weight and to stop smoking but there is so much more that effective hypnotherapy can do.  Over the years I have worked with an extremely wide range of challenges, from stress, anxiety, confidence and some very unusual issues.

Most of my work comes from recommendations from happy clients.  I often work with people who have tried hypnotherapy before, without success and help them find a way to make it work for them.  Here is just a small selection of testimonials from some of my clients……….

I wasn’t sure what to expect from the experience, but I found it relaxing and comfortable.  Before I felt anxious, on edge and suffered panic attacks a lot of the time, especially when travelling or in enclosed spaces.

I am know feeling much calmer, car journeys are no longer a stressful time for me.  I was unsure what to expect when it came to hypnotherapy, but Edward made me feel calm and at ease straight away. For me hypnotherapy helped immensely, I now feel calmer and my anxiety is in check.

I would definitely recommend trying hypnotherapy and Edward is a fantastic at what he does.

C. W

I did not have the natural births that I planned, yes I had to have medical help to deliver both my children, however without hypnosis I would not have had any control over the situation, I would not have felt able to deal with it and possibly I would not have had my second child, imagine that!

L. A

I suffered with insomnia for many years and have tried many remedies. Quite apart from herbal remedies I also tried acupuncture coupled with the common sense routines, no caffeine, no TV in bedroom, warm bath before bed, darkened bedroom.

None of these remedies even touched my insomnia and I felt I was destined to never have a good night’s sleep again.  Although I had a slight (but totally unnecessary apprehension) to try hypnosis, I needn’t have been concerned at all.  During hypnosis I was awake, aware but very relaxed.  The results have been fantastic.  After a course of treatment I NOW SLEEP!

I would have no hesitation in recommending Edward Arran.

D. S

Great experience, would recommend it to anybody. You are in total control and do not say anything or do anything that you do not want to and you will never feel more relaxed.

G. F

You will never feel more relaxed

E. G

I would describe going to see Edward as having a gentle yet powerful brain massage, I go in feeling stressed and unsure about many aspects of my life and come out feeling euphoric and more able to function.  A great and lasting experience!

L. T

Very successful and very enjoyable! I wasn’t confident and I doubted myself, Edward soon sorted this out! I am much more confident without a doubt!

D. A

I’ve never experienced anything like it before!

A. S

If you are even a little unsure about whether to be hypnotised, please speak to Edward – he will explain the whole process before a session even takes place.

He is not a stage hypnotist and won’t make you look stupid, which was my original view.  He is there to help you.  I just wish I hadn’t waited as long as I did before I contacted him.  Thank you, Edward.

R. L

Hypnosis is good for slimming as I lost 1 stone and gained confidence from using hypnosis which I needed to go into hospital for surgery.

I would recommend hypnosis to anyone, it has worked wonders for me.  Edward is a very caring and understanding person.

E. B

Excellent.  Felt more calm and confident and able to channel my thoughts in a different way.  I did not know what to expect but hypnotherapy has given me the confidence to challenge my negative thoughts and deal with them in a positive way.

C. H

It is quite a weird feeling. While I was aware of everything that was being said, and aware that if I really wanted to I could come out of it, in practice I was in such a deep state of relaxation that I didn’t have the inclination or the energy to do so.

I’d been suffering from depression and stress and was unable to stop myself behaving badly towards me partner. I just wanted to stay in bed and hide. This is normal after treatment for cancer, and some of it is delayed shock/PTSD, but I couldn’t face the thought of just putting up with it and waiting to get through it.

After the first session I already started feeling better but since the second one all these problems have miraculously gone away. I do get a bit down occasionally as everyone does, but I now snap out of it quickly and don’t take it out on my partner.

I’m so grateful for the speedy and effective treatment of my issues and I think it tragic that more people are not aware of the benefits of hypnotherapy.

C. B

A strange relaxed feeling I had never experienced before.  I was frustrated at doing things I shouldn’t have been doing like having my mouth open when eating and talking over people.

I feel I am doing these things less. Not there yet but getting there.  I would recommend anyone who has similar problems to go to Edward

A. M

Thank you for the help you gave me in preparing for the operation. I know I could not have made it without your help. Right from the first session I knew that hypnotherapy was going to make me succeed and I came across a poem by Robert Louis Stevenson the first verse of which summed up my feelings after you had left.

The poem is entitled “My brain swims empty and light” and I will quote that verse;

My brain swims empty and light

Like a nut on a sea of oil;

And an atmosphere of quiet

Wraps me about from the turmoil and clamour of life.

Thanks to you I was able to have a successful operation and will now be able to resume the kind of life I enjoy.

Best Wishes

Calming and enlightening, I felt surprisingly aware whilst feel so relaxed.

I was anxious and stressed.  I can now deal with situations in a new light and feel much calmer about things that previously would have made me extremely anxious, and once caused me to faint. I now don’t faint do to feeling anxious.

Before visiting Edward I suffered with fainting nearly every day from feeling extremely anxious about everyday situations. This had really been affecting my college attendance and confidence.

I was unsure as to what to expect when seeing Edward but he made me feel very comfortable and hypnotherapy was really relaxing and calming to me - as well as eye opening.

He’s made me see situations in a new light, where I feel more calm, confident and relaxed about things I would have perhaps once fainted over. I really do believe he has changed my life dramatically and I am very grateful for this.

I thoroughly recommend Edward, even if you’re sceptical about hypnotherapy.

H. S

I suffered very badly from anxiety for 7 years. I have tried medication, CBT, group therapy, counselling and even rapid eye movement therapy, they were good for a short while but nothing shifted the anxiety for good and recently it just got unmanageable and unbearable.

I am into mountain biking and would worry about new trails and even fret about trails I had done a thousand times before, one tiny slip would set me off into a panic attack.

A new trail would leave me breathless, panicky and I would freeze with fear and have to push my bike back to the car in tears! Now on my bike I enjoy the moment. I don’t worry about what is ahead and have a huge sense of ‘I can do it’ and take every challenge as it comes.

I have done things since our very first session which I would never have even considered before! I have gone back to places where I couldn’t do bits and not even hesitated and smashed it! I am going mountain biking around Europe and now known can do anything! I can do it! No need to worry!

My husband and brother have noticed a huge change in me and it is all down to Edward! We couldn’t thank him enough!!!

K. T

I was skeptical about the benefit but found the process relaxing and its effect very significant.  It has taken my golf handicap down from 18 to 7 in a three month period.

H. T

Very successful and very enjoyable!  I wasn't confident and I doubted myself, Edward soon sorted this out!  I am much more confident without a doubt!

D. A

The results have been fantastic.  After a course of treatment I NOW SLEEP!  I would have no hesitation in recommending Edward Arran”.

R. S

Incredibly relaxing experience. Happy to listen to Edwards’s voice and allow my sub conscious to respond. Sometimes quite surprised at images/responses that came to mind.

I was finding work overwhelming and struggling to put things in perspective. I wanted to be able to not react so strongly to stressful situations and to not be visibly agitated.  People have commented on a change in my persona at work. I do feel more in control and don’t panic/stress as much when things go wrong.

I had no expectations of the hypnotherapy experience but have been really impressed by the changes I have seen since seeing Edward. Edward asks lots of questions to ensure that the crux of the issue is identified and can be handled with your sub conscious. I wanted to see an improvement in my ability to manage pressure in work and this has definitely been realised.

G. K

Edward is very easy to get along with understanding and goes further than just what you need in hypnotherapy.  I am more relaxed happier and belief I can do it.

Edward has a lovely way with working with you understanding caring and professional but with the right amount of humour very intelligent outside of his specialist subject I would recommend anyone try Edward as I have tried hypnotherapy elsewhere before and wasn’t as powerful as Ed’s

Give him a try (well a couple one session isn’t enough) it’s worth it!

A. W

Very difficult to describe!  Changes ‘happen’ without having to work at them.  Always came out of sessions feeling much better than when I went in.

M. D

I thought Edward was a superb help, and helped me in the time I was there.

R. D

Relaxing and surprisingly easy to do.

V. B

Left feeling more relaxed and confident within myself.

J. S

Thank you so very much for my session with you.  You changed all my pre-conceptions and gave me an experience I shall never forget.

S. T

I have nails! For the first time in my life,which is wonderful. I think with this result, as well, has come more confidence in myself and pride.

Further sessions to improve upon my self esteem are following and I am managing to suppress my appetite after years of yo-yo style dieting. I don’t feel a need to eat, to feel better about myself I just do feel better about myself since the hypnotherapy sessions with Edward.

P. K

It is a very relaxing experience. I no longer drink alcohol, however the rather pleasant sensation of, say, a glass of wine is a similar feeling to hypnosis. You feel relaxed and safe.

Mellow is probably the best description of the emotional state. You are still there, fully aware of Edward speaking to you with a little fuzziness around the edges, as your mind allows itself to be more fully open to the experience.

After each session I felt very happy and comfortable, similar to a great night out in the company of good friends and slept well on the evenings, like someone with no troubles.

P. K

Calmed my high levels of stress.
