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……….

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.

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

I chose my hypnotherapist well.  Edward is passionate about what he does and was enthusiastic about helping me.  His experience gives him a wide range of techniques at his fingertips.  Often working instinctively, he allows his intuitive mind to channel his way of working.

T. H

I’m so glad I chose Edward.  I felt completely at ease and could see he genuinely cares about helping people overcome their issues as much as they do.

With Edward’s help I began to understand where these feelings came from and after a few sessions my mind began to work for me rather than against me.

N. H

I met Edward several years ago, after fighting my weight problem. I finally have it under control, and it’s all due to Edward getting to the bottom of my problem.

I can’t thank him enough for his help and support, and he’s only a phone call away.

L. L

Slightly surreal. I came out of the session not sure whether I had really allowed Edward to talk to my subconscious and feeling slightly fraudulent; then exactly one week later I stopped smoking tobacco. It has been 3 weeks since then and no cravings at all.

I was stuck in an endless cycle of knowing that I must stop smoking and not being able to.

Edward has helped me in a profound way. I am very grateful for this and for the time he has spent with me in order to get me to this new place in my life. Thank you.

P. D

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

S. B

I would highly recommend Edward, he has helped me immensely and I would have no hesitation in seeking his help again in the future if needed.

J. H

Gave me a positive outlook and helped me put things into perspective.

D. J

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

Thanks to Edward, my life has changed massively.  I suffered with anxiety and it was affecting my day to day activities to the point where I did not want to leave the house.

Now, this is a very distant memory and I am anxiety free. I no longer dread waking up in the morning and thoroughly enjoy life.

For anybody considering hypnotherapy I would highly recommend Edward, it can be truly life changing.

H. G

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 had hypnosis many years ago but this was on a much deeper level.

S. C

You will never feel more relaxed

E. G

I would never have believed the amazing effect Edward has had on my lovely friend. Her life was ‘floundering’ and not only did he put her back on the straight and narrow but he instilled in her a love for life and made her believe in herself.

Whenever she feels as though she needs reminding how amazing she is, she just books a session with Edward and she’s fully restored again!!

L. F

I was very anxious about heights. Since the sessions I’ve been able to take the family on foreign holidays. Working with Edward was really enjoyable experience and I’ve managed to overcome something that has dictated the way I lived my live!

R. S

Hypnotherapy was a life saver for me.  It gave me back my freedom to make healthy choices.

P. T

Edward helped me enormously in preparing for the birth of my second child.  My first labour had been long, painful, and like most women’s, had not followed my birth plan!  I’d read all the books – on hypnobirthing and natural birth and I’d tried to practise some of the relaxation techniques that they taught,

most of which had concentrated on controlled breathing – not much different from the pilates and yoga I had also done. And so I wasn’t really convinced that they would help while I was in the throws of painful contractions.

I was sceptical about how Edward’s hypnotherapy techniques might help, and all I had to go on was my experience of TV and stage hypnotists. But Edward’s calm and caring approach and clear explanation of what he was going to do put me and my husband at ease.

fter only a couple of sessions I was able to get into a state of deep relaxation where I could focus on the positive goal of seeing my healthy baby boy, rather than a process of pain.

Unfortunately there were complications and I had to have a cesarean section. But the proceeding weeks and days leading up to the delivery were made all the easier by the hypnosis that I’d had with Edward

H. R

Edward is a very sincere person, who wants to make a difference. He is easy to talk to and has earnestly sought to remove my problems.

T. H

Just a quick note to update you on my progress.  I have lost 33 pounds since I saw you last!!

P. R

I had a big hope in the therapy with Edward, and on the other hand I was a little concerned as I had little idea and knowledge about it. A friend of mine got over acrophobia by hypnosis so I thought I should give a go.

Edward is very welcoming, and listens to me very carefully first. And he approached my problems considering my concerns I had against the hypnosis. The more I talked to him the more I felt the benefit and effect of his hypnotherapy. I managed the fear and anxiety when I had a job interview.

M. L

Not what I expected. Relaxing and a feeling of being very focused. Always with the utmost trust and felt very comfortable.  Before I anxious over minimal problems and now have the ability to use things learnt in sessions to focus and remain calm.

Hypnotherapy and specifically Edward’s highly methodical and expert use of it, surpassed all of my expectations. His approach to my particular situation was fantastic and he really made me feel at ease. More importantly, Edward teaches you more and more about the human mind throughout your sessions with him and helps you to understand the changes that you and he make along the way.

Thoroughly recommended, in my opinion!

C. M

Edward’s calm, personable manner ensures that his clients are put at ease.  He explains himself clearly and his technique ‘hit the spot’.

I feel much calmer and more centered than I have done for a while.  A true testament to the quality of his skills.

A. K

Edward is one of the nicest people that I have ever met in my life. He is a true professional and is exemplary at his job as a hypnotherapist.

His attention to deal is superb, his ability to by pass the critical thinking part of the mind and get to sub conscious is truly breathtaking and is almost magical how after just one session, I felt 10 times a better person.

I can safely say, that after 35 years I feel the best that I have ever felt in my entire life and it is all down to the unbelievably amazing and effective skills of Edward.

To be honest, words just can’t do it justice just how good he is . I can’t recommend Edward highly enough. He has transformed me as person and I can’t thank him enough!

J. S

It’s really hard to explain and to put in words how Edward has helped me to solve little things in my life that other people may struggle with.. cigarettes, eating disorders, anxiety, stress, breaking up issues. me?

I have never had any of these and I don’t even know what they are. Or at least, this is what I believe in. I don’t understand what people mean when they invite me to go outside for a cigarette, as I can’t even stand the smell. And I don’t see myself as someone who has ever smoked.

Well. whatever the issue is, I do recommend a chat with Edward. If you want to achieve it, he’ll just make it happen for you. Enjoy life!

J. D

Relaxing.  I found it difficult to resist unnecessary eating when stressed.  I am more relaxed about food and weight control.  I have tried many ways to lose weight and get my eating under control.

I was skeptical about the benefits of hypnotism, but since my therapy I have a much improved relationship with food.

S. S

I originally met Edward through a mutual friend some years ago. He is sincere and passionate about helping others to reach their potential through hypnosis, identifying the issues with the individual that are preventing then from leading a positive and full filled life.

It is very important to be talk openly and honestly and, for me , Edward has all the qualities to be able to facilitate this and put you at your ease.  For me, I initially visited Edward following a bereavement, which impacted on family relationships resulting in anxiety and panic attacks. The time with Edward helped me to find the underlying reasons that were causing these feelings and within a short time these had disappeared.

It is surprising to me how being able to identify and work on the issues, can have such  a positive effect on so many other aspects of your life. It is difficult to sum everything up, other than to say my ‘mo-jo’ has returned, relationships are better, work related worries don’t seem so big any more and the thought that I could achieve whatever I set my mind to is stronger.

If you are considering Hypnotherapy for whatever reason, I would feel able to highly recommend Edward.

A. L

I was very impressed by the informality yet professionalism of your service.  Your approach seemed fresh and tailored to me, not formulaic.

H. T

Calming, relaxing and peaceful ….. cured my hay fever.
