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 needed to start losing weight.  Edward’s sessions changed the way I managed what I ate and I have started losing weight

M. D

I went to see Edward with what I thought was a weight problem but through hypnosis found that it was much more than being overweight and that I needed to address many other things in my life. Edward helped me to see the way forward and I was soon able to make decisions and put them into action almost straight away.

Hypnosis is a pleasant experience and nothing to be scared of and you are always in control. I found that it helps me to relax and to look at issues I hadn't seen before. I still need to work at things but hope that by addressing other issues it will help me to lose weight as well.

If you are unsure about hypnosis, try it. Edward will give you clear explanations and support and put your fears to rest around hypnosis. You won't be running around like a chicken which was a fear I had. I can honestly say I am moving forward and thank Edward for giving me the tools and way forward.

C. H

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

Ed delivered the sessions in a professional and friendly manner.  I felt very apprehensive as I had never done anything like this but my life has improved, so much. My head is now a lot stronger.

Ed has saved me from a very dark place. My life now has a purpose and Ed has put me back on the right path.

M. W

Many thanks for your wonderful work with me.  I have been put to the test on several occasions, and passed with flying colours.

C. P

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

R. D

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

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

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

I’ve heard about hypnosis but never experienced it. Found the experience very helpful and also talking to Edward really help putting things in perspective but it has also helped with sleeping not realising that the hypnosis makes you feel very relaxed. I feel that going forward I am stronger in myself and feel like I can tackle my challenges.

I have a phobia of the dreaded MRI machine and I was open to any help that Edward could offer me.

I feel a lot happier and feel like I can be stronger going forward. I am stronger than I thought I was. If anything bothers me I take deep breaths and try and think through the situation before doing anything whereas before I would have avoided the situation.

Edward has helped me with a phobia that has troubled me for many years. Having never tried hypnosis before I went in with an open mind and was looking for any help that Edward could offer me.

I found Edward very helpful, very approachable and felt that although it’s my phobia I am not alone in having these and he went out of his way to help me taking many ways to help me. I cannot recommend Edward highly enough a very knowledgeable man and always has a smile which helps too.

D. E

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

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

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

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

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

I don’t know how he did it, but it worked for me, and it fixed my problem.  So thank you for helping me!

C. M

I looked forward to each session, getting to speak to my subconscious was amazing.  I found myself feeling much happier and confident.

L. R

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

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

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!

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

Without your help I do not know how my life would have gone.  Your sessions have really helped me sort out my family and health problems, so that now I can face things with a positive outlook.

Thank you.

I was in despair, having never really properly shaken post natal depression since the birth of my first child. I had got over the issues of low mood and hopelessness but was left unable to cope and stay calm in stressful or difficult situations. I lost my cool regularly and was frequently stressed and upset.

I am now able to remain calm and help my son through his frustration, tiredness and confusion. I have a better relationship with him, my husband and parents.

Edward has helped me to become a better parent and a happier person. It’s like a door in me was closed and he has opened it- letting in so much good stuff.

Until I met Edward I don’t think I had really truly experienced the full joy of being a parent. Now, I enjoy my son every day – even when times are tough. And I feel proud of the parent I have become.


R. G

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

H. T

I believe the word “hypnosis” is either misleading or there is a general lack of understanding on what it consists of.

All Edward does is bringing you into a calm state of mind where your awareness is enhanced so that you can focus better on the goals you want to set up for yourself.

The next day was the start of my life again, I was smiling again. I looked in a full-length mirror, side on, and noticed I was even standing straighter!

Four sessions on I feel fantastic, no tablets, drugs, potions or shrinks.  Just an amazing man, with an amazing ability,or gift, call it what you want.  Thank you Edward, you’ve changed my life!

M. P

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

P. R

Relaxing but unusual!  I had a lot of issues with driving, even short distances. High levels of anxiety.

My anxiety has reduced and I am able to drive to many places with no worries. I still feel I need to do a little work on confidence/not fearing the worst in other aspects of my life.

Edward is wonderful to work with. He's really friendly and easy to talk to which makes the whole process very easy and not daunting at all. He is also very talented at what he does.

I've definitely seen improvements in just a short number of sessions and I look forward to working on some other areas in the future. Thank you Edward!

A. B

It really is remarkable.  Over a very short time I feel happier, more relaxed, content with myself, and a more rounded person.

Gone are my palpitations, occasional panic attacks, and those adrenalin rushes that left me feeling nervous and on edge.
