"My name is Dan MacDonald and I am the founder of 'Real Men Talk', I want to share my story with you about the BLAST Technique® and how PTSD nearly ruined my life.
People who know me, will know that I have had a colourful history and even featured on a TV documentary about it, I cringe when I watch that show back but the best thing about that programme was meeting my fiancé. Despite the hell we both went through and me doing 18 months in a Czech jail, somehow we (just) about managed to hold things together until I got released nearly 3 years ago in 2017.
Anyone who’s done time will know how tough it is to settle back into real life, and having been in foreign jail was even tougher as I’d spent 18 months in near isolation in military style conditions. After I was released, my physical health collapsed, I had crippling back & knee problems which stuffed my plans to get back into the building trade. On top of that, my partner was ill and our baby never slept, I was hospitalised, the baby was hospitalised and my partner got sepsis after having him.
I really suffered throughout this time with severe depression and anxiety attacks. I was haunted by flashbacks all through the day, and at night I couldn’t sleep, suffering with nightmares that would wake me up soaked in sweat and in a state of terror. In the months that followed, my paranoia, sleeping issues, nightmares, flashbacks, depression, isolation, mood swings and temper had escalated to the point that after one memorable explosive row, my wedding was cancelled. I was devastated. I loved her and also never wanted to live separately from my son so this broke me. I had everything I had ever wanted and yet had ruined my life because of the PTSD and TRAUMA I had suffered.
I was wondering how this had happened and what kind of person I had become and couldn’t see it. Weeks passed, and I realised I couldn’t let this relationship crumble for good and yet my partner refused to get back with me until I’d gotten some help.
I wanted to save the relationship and agreed to get help so agreed to see respected PTSD therapist Nick Davies. I never thought that having PTSD for nearly 10 years would have this kind of effect on me still but Nick explained thar living with PTSD was like holding onto a massive rock. Exhausting and was using up so much of my energy just in order to function.
The BLAST Technique® session was crazy, in a matter of minutes I went from a state of horror, nausea and sheer emotion to feeling relieved, happy, like a weight had been lifted. This anchor I'd been holding onto was no longer dragging me down. I also felt upset and angry that I’d let this event control my life for so long and yet now happy that I can move on with my future.
Things have changed inside of me. I’m calmer. I sleep much better. I’m no longer explosive and have much more patience.
One of the hardest thing was getting other people to accept that the BLAST® therapy had worked as they simply couldn’t get their heads around that a single session could change things so drastically.
The BLAST Technique® not only saved me but it also saved my life. Had I not gotten back with Nicola, living alone with the PTSD would have been terrifying to consider and I honestly wonder how far things could have gone had I not had treatment.
Daniel MacDonald - PTSD
"My best friend of 23 years and her partner were found dead in bed in an apartment hotel in Istanbul in September 2019, this was a huge shock and traumatic experience, especially as they were both so young fit and healthy. This had left me with open emotional wounds, not understanding at this point what the cause of death was, not being able to gather together and have our goodbyes. Grief can take up to 18 months - after three months daily I would feel emotional, missing our daily conversations. We had over the past five years been through a lot as friends and I had so many beautiful and fun memories.
January 2020, I tried starting a new year being positive and pushing on with my business
which had come to a standstill. I started networking with therapists that I knew and pushing myself to take self-help and come out of this emotional period of my life.
Nick Davies and his BLAST Technique® were put in my pathway and I thought why not? I decided also at the time to take an intensive course with Nick Davies so that I could add to my therapies and have a true understanding of what the BLAST® was all about.
It was almost like magic, after no more than 20 minutes I felt like I had shifted emotionally.
Nick had me thinking about my friend, bringing the tears and emotions up, he then used the BLAST Technique® which is a very fast and efficient technique that he has developed resolving traumas and PTSD. It was explained to me that it will help speed up the grieving experience and I can say hand on heart, I can now think and talk about my dear friend and feel proud and happy and not an emotional mess, it feels amazing!"
Carolanne Reisseiger - Traumatic Grief
"Really good first session, it helped me let go of negative thoughts from previous performances. Gave me strategies to put into practice to help, with (technique 1) and (technique 2). Also made me realise that I need to find the balance between trying to hard to find the middle balance."
GB Boxer - Sports Performance Mind Coaching
"Good morning Nick, I do hope you are well and have had the best start to the new year!
I wanted to let you know how well I am doing and how happy I am. I remember when we did the BLAST® therapy and you explained how I would still have the memories but wouldn't feel hurt and so emotional about it all. Since the therapy I had from you up until now, I really feel amazing. I have become so numb towards all of the pain and hurt and I now feel I can really move forward with my life.
Changing course at university really was the best thing I could have done, I took all of what you said into consider. For example, a pass is a pass, there is no need for everything to be 100%.
Having the positive mindset has really enhanced my happiness, I guess the law of attraction?
I am getting along with my family so much better, and I really feel happy with all aspects of my life. My relationship, my family, university, application for work, social life... but most of all my inner peace and happiness.
I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for me and all the therapy I had, it was well worth it. I am still benefiting now from our sessions a year or 2 back. You are amazing at what you do and I wish you all the best, I hope life takes you on the journey you desire."
Mande Dothar - PTSD
"I was telling all the hospital staff about your BLAST Technique® as they were confused that I smiled and looked happy when they reluctantly told me I will have to inject myself in the stomach every night for the next 5 weeks (anti-clotting drug). I don't know if you remember how bad my needle phobia was but I was the clammy one in the phlebotomy clinic clinging to a sick bowl, with a fan on my face, being told to take deep breaths. I wouldn't have coped with even thinking about injecting myself before your intervention, never mind having to actually do it. The change is so profound I actually caught myself last night thinking excitedly "Ooo, it's only an hour before I get to do my jab!" Magic! Thank you. Xx"
Dot Lindon - Needle Phobia
"Considering I wanted to get help for my partner, I was delighted to find that Nick treated us both simultaneously and has enabled us to improve our relationship - both through self-improvement & my partner working through issues themselves.
I particularly liked the way Nick remembered key information that allowed him to tailor sessions to concentrate on specific issues and used various approaches to suit. He does not work on a "one size fits all" approach and his wealth of experience and skills make him incredibly capable of helping you work through various complicated & sometimes elusive problems. Thank you, Nick!"
Shilpa Panchal - Relationship & Childhood Issues
"Like many individuals I was initially very sceptical about Hypnotherapy, however, Nick certainly proved me wrong. His calm yet entertaining approach allowed me to relax and give all. Not only did he save my relationship (and sanity) I too am now venturing on becoming a fully fledged Hypnotherapist. Thanks Nick!"
David Astle - PTSD & Relationship Issues
"When I visited you I was not sure if hypnosis was for me. Nearly 5 months later I have not even had the urge to light a fag. I still socialise which was really when I did smoke (for 30 years), but smoked heavily. You know inside if you were ever to start again and I can 100% say this for me is and will never be true. You're a magician pal. Thank you so much from me & family, Eddie."
Eddie Hinch - Stop Smoking
"Made my daughter feel very comfortable within a few minutes. She is a much more relaxed young person who is not getting so stressed over her schoolwork, and is much less anxious in general."
Client asked to remain anonymous - Bullying & Exam Stress
"I had two sessions with NIck and felt both were successful. My life has changed for the better."
Ellie Tremain - Anxiety
"Nick has a nice easy way, but remains professional, uses the tools at his disposal brilliantly, but with humour, easy to talk to, gains your trust very quickly. I shall always be grateful, for the successful way he dealt with my problem, where other therapists haven't come close, without question the best!"
Graham Nabb - Anger and Frustration
"Felt very relaxed in your company, you have an understanding which makes it easier for me to express my concerns. You allow me to share some personal barriers which are protected by self embarassment/confidence. It feels a release after meeting up with you."
Client asked to remain anonymous - Anxiety & OCD
"You have changed my life forever and for that I will be forever grateful!"
James A Lloyd - Alcohol and Drug Issues
"I can honestly say Nick has changed my life. After losing both parents close together I was tangled in grief, loneliness and suffering from post traumatic amnesia. In just one session Nick eradicated these feelings from certain episodes in my life and made me feel free; to the point where I was actually laughing at one point during the session. Now 3 weeks on I feel like a different person. Free from the shackles of grief and pain. And to top it off I have fond memories coming back of my lovely mum which I couldn't remember since her passing. My husband is a typical sceptic and even he can't believe the change in me. I can highly recommend Nick and the treatments he offers. We are all tied up with past experiences causing effects on our everyday lives. This man could be the difference you need!"
Luisa Dawson - Unresolved Grief & Psychogenic Amnesia
"Mr Davies is a true professional. His warm, friendly demeanour and honesty was appreciated by me. Also, his high regard for code of professional conduct appealed to me. The use of various techniques for a variety of problems is another asset of him. I would recommend him to others with psychological problems."
Jagjeet Johal - Anxiety
"I want to say a big thank you for all the work you have done and are continuing to do with me over the past few weeks. I have experienced some eye opening moments (true “light bulb” moments) relating to my beliefs and behaviours and how I have let my past influence my present. These beliefs and behaviours have not always been beneficial, as I have found out, thanks to working with you and experiencing your BLAST technique, I can now truly say that I am moving forward to a better life.
As you know I have been a therapist for some time now and would like to say that it is my opinion that there are many therapists that need to address their own issues on a regular basis, unfortunately many do not. By addressing our own issues we will be better suited to help our clients.
By going through this process (still ongoing) with you I am clearing out and addressing a number my own less than positive beliefs (some of which have been self destructive or limiting my development) and working towards a better life for myself, my family, loved ones and for my own clients.
I highly recommend working with you and feel that there are many benefits for me doing so and many still to be realised."
David Hastings - Changing Core Limiting Beliefs and Behaviours
"I can't recommend Nick Davies enough! I came to Nick with a number of issues and in crisis. He helped me to understand my mind and to make informed choices, which before I struggled with. He helped me to look more positively at life and on negative past experiences differently. Life goals and planning for the future have taught me ways to conbsider the choices that I have before me to better succeed in life."
John Paisley - Trauma and Stress
"Just like to say you made me open up talk about things I put to the back of my mind, didn't want to address them made me feel better about myself also my partner Sue too. You were so easy to talk to good at your job. I am now able to talk more open now, we talk about more things now we have seen you. Thank you for all you have done!"
William Poynton - Tinnitus and Stress
"Thanks to your input and invaluable expertise J.J. is now a happier, more confident & independant 7 year old. His ability to verbalize his worries & frustrations has increased significantly and with those changes his fear of new foods has begun to diminish. Thank you very much Nick for getting us on the right path to a happy, healthy child."
Nicky & J.J. - Eating Disorders
"I have been carrying around issues for years that have impacted on my life & relationships. I have had 4 sessions with Nick & my life has changed for the good. For the first time in my life I feel in control, happy & excited about facing the fears that I used to carry around & burden me. Nick never judged me, made me feel comfortable & used an approach (BLAST Technique©) with me that worked wonders. Thank you for making me realise my potential & become the "REAL" me!"
Client asked to remain anonymous - Trauma and Low Self Esteem
"Nick is just someone who puts you at instant ease with his genuine warmth, care & understanding. Within the first session, I knew we had someone who could atually make a difference & change our little wallflower into a bigger bloom & open a 'new door to confidence' & in turn, a happier outlook on life.
Nick you are a very talented man & thank you so much indeed."
Vanessa - Child's Confidence Issues
"Absolutely amazing. I was doubtful at first but now understand myself and my logic in my thought processes. I'm learning to become the new improved person, helping me to evolve with time."
Earl James - Stress & Motivation
"I am a boxer and started to see Nick so he could help me prepare for fights as I suffered with anxiety. It has been fantastic as Nick has talked to me about the mind and how it works and this has helped me cope with my exams (* unexpectedly passed all GCSEs). I am extremely grateful for all his support and would highly recommend him."
Client asked to remain anonymous - Sporting Anxiety & Exam Stress
"Nick Davies is a real people person doing a job he loves to help others, which really shows in his treatment. The therapy I received has made a marked difference in my life for the better.
Confidence has grown, self assurance & positive outlooks on life, work & personal issues.
I would reccomend anyone to try Nicks style of therapy & see what a difference it could make to you life."
Sean Macconnamara - Stress & Depression
"Nick it has been quite a few years since I came to see you regarding work progression and lack of confidence. Well it finally came together last week. Not only did I land the job I wanted but feedback said..'star performance, outstanding'..doesn't sound like me, lol. I have never forgotten your tips and lots fell into place..weird it was still all there after our sessions a few years ago... I am a product of your success :) thanks"
Client asked to remain anonymous - Interview Confidence
"I paid heed to your comments and although my personal life was in tough times, I relocated my job and now work with fantastic people where every day feels like a breath of fresh air compared to before. Thanks for helping me see the wood for the trees Nick!"
Richard Palfrey - Stress Management
"A big thank you for the improvement to my granddaughter's health. I cannot believe how quick the changes are, in a few weeks my granddaughter is so better in her daily life, more relaxed and confident and at ease with herself all thanks to you. You are doing an excellent job, with pride and care, again I can only say thank you, you are a very easy person to get along with and relate to. Good luck in your future."
Chris Cowie - Multiple Trauma (Granddaughter)
"I felt you were excellent with the skills you used and instantly put me at ease. You completely understood how I was feeling and I appreciated your honest approach. I now feel a lot happier and confident within my life and it was all down to you, thank you!"
Clare Gibbs - Relationship Break Up and Low Self Esteem
"I was mildly sceptical to start but open minded (well kind of), to be a therapist you have to adapt to who you are working with like a people camelion, and you have a tremendous energy and charisma I instantly picked up on. It's infectious!!!!
I really enjoyed the sessions and they felt very beneficial. I feel personally (like the crab and the shell) that I have grown/developed and become more open minded on areas I was less open to suggestion. By learning the process of 'letting go' in certain situations and areas I felt responsible for controlling I now feel more in control.....if that makes sense. I generally feel like I've gone up a level in all aspects of my attitude, psyche and communication. I also did what you suggested on holiday by taking in the scenery, closed eyes, deep breaths, felt great.
So a truly grateful "Thank you"!"
Paul - Stress and Business Coaching
"I feel that you (Nick) have changed my life for the better, the road is still long, but I'm now taking it with a lot more strength and courage than before. To the point where I am almost cocky with certain aspects of my life, which I was afraid of before! I now smile a lot more and can see a clearer picture of the future I want to have! I can't thank you enough for your help, Nick you are totally amazing!"
Emma McPherson - Low Self Esteem
"Well what do I say. A real helpful & pleasant guy, 150% there to help you and the true thing about him is he is not there to make money off you. He recommended the one best session for me, then gave me as much free advice and information to help myself. God bless him, a top man."
Paul Jackson - Stress
"We enlisted Nick's professional help at a time when my husband had just been diagnosed with cancer. Nick helped us both tremendously with our individual needs. He equipped my husband with the tools to positively support and he involved him in his own recovery. He helped me specifically in dealing with my own emotions and outside influences.
An invaluable support that we would thoroughly recommend."
Client asked to remain anonymous - Recovery From Cancer
"After years of anxiety, depression, social phobia, anxiety attacks, I was completely stuck, sad, angry, anxious, merely existing instead of living my life. In such a short space of time seeing Nick, I feel like a completely different person - positive, confident, courageous, excited about my future, making plans. Nick is a true inspiration, passionate about his work and what helps even more is knowing he understands how you feel through his own experiences.
If I have one small regret - it's not meeting Nick sooner! Receiving Nick's invaluable help/treatments and gaining the tools + knowledge to confidently move forward, has been life changing."
T. Martin - Anxiety, Depression & Social Phobia
"In just four sessions I felt confident and much happier with myself. I now take life as it comes and "whatever happens - I'll deal with it". My new confidence has also improved my performance at work enormously!!"
Lyn Henry - High Blood Pressure & Anxiety
"When I first went to see Nick he was highly recommended so I trusted him from the start. I was very angry, agitated, bitter and twisted. Negative. Didn't like anybody or anything. His suggestions on how I could alter the way I feel and behave worked like a charm. I now am a lot calmer, happier and balanced. I feel that I can maintain the skills he has given me through lifes ups and downs.
I know I can always contact him at any time should I need to for more support. He is worth every penny of his fee."
Client asked to remain anonymous - Stress and Anger
"Nick has always offered good common sense advice, he has a natural knack of being able to inspire people and make them believe in themselves. He has showed me how I can learn to be confident and work through my fears to do anything I want to do."
Gail Houghton - Confidence
"Nick is someone who makes you feel extremely at ease as soon as you walk into his treatment room. The treatment is first class, such a relaxing feeling, even though I was giving up smoking. At no point did I feel out of control or uneasy. Coming out of Nicks hypnosis was just as relaxing as going in."
Jason C - Stopped Smoking
"My sessions with yourself were excellent, you broke everything down for me, made it really easy to understand where and why I was going wrong. It's helped me get back on track, my whole outlook on life and people has changed for the better. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart, you have performed a miracle!!!!"
Leigh Reader - Anger and Frustration
"Just a short mail to let you know how my coffee thing is progressing. Since Saturday when you waved the magic pen my coffee consumption has gone from 6-8 giant mugs of very strong coffee down to 2-3 a day of smaller mugs which are not so strong. I wanted to swop coffee for smoothies and it has worked, I think about making coffee then when I go to the kettle find myself making a smoothie instead, which has had an unexpected bonus because each time I had coffee I would have something “naughty” with it and that has stopped too. I am so glad I volunteered to be your guinea pig in class that day and many thanks for helping me to break my coffee habit."
Anita Tulley - Addiction to Caffeine
"Nick has helped me with many things. When I fist met Nick I had no direction in life, and very little confidence. I am now very focused on a new career and I have a lot more confidence in everything I do. Nick also hypnotised me to stop smoking, I have not smoked since and it has been 4 months.
I would recommend Nick to anybody. He is approachable, calm and makes people feel at ease instantly. He is very honest and passionate about everything that he does. When asked for help, he makes it his priority to do all he can. He is truly inspirational."
Donna W - Stopped Smoking and Confidence
"Nick vastly improved my mentality towards my sport leading to my first senior World ranking...It was an honour to have had the opportunity to be the focus of your skills and techniques. I cannot thank you enough for how much you have helped an inspired me."
Robert Veitch - Sports Performance Coaching
"I went to see nick just over 4 months ago to quit smoking. The main reason I wanted to quit was that I smoked cannabis and this was making me very lazy and withdrawn. Every time I had tried in the past, the weight pilled on and the mood swings where very unpleasant for the people around me. After one session with Nick I have quit smoking without the mood swings, also I haven't piled on the weight like I did in the past."
Mark Jones - Stop Smoking
"I am so glad I got in touch with you, you have made a big difference to my life. I have lost two people in my family in just over a year, but it has not made me feel the way it did before. Also my son did move to Spain, but I am fine with it thanks to you and I am going over to see him in April.
I am so grateful for all your help, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart."
Margaret Gare - Anxiety & Worry
"Nick is friendly and enthusiastic and explained clearly and confidently the techniques we would use. The combination of conscious and subconscious methods really helped me to lose my fear of public speaking. If you need to reduce your fear of public speaking for work or social occasions I thoroughly recommend Nick as a therapist"
Client asked to remain anonymous - Public Speaking
"After having my second child, life became a struggle and the pressure of being a mum of two took its toll. I took advantage of the free consultation where I met Nick, I was put at ease straight away which helped me to be even more determined to make positive changes. Throughout my sessions I felt comfortable and relaxed and started to enjoy the experience. I realised how much pain I was in before. My outlook on life has improved dramatically and I am a stronger person. The techniques I have learnt will help me deal with challenges ahead and will stay with me for life. I can now enjoy a bright future for myself and my children. Nick is a true inspiration to the human race. It was a pleasure to work with him."
Gemma Harper - Post Natal Depression, Anxiety and Stress
"Before I met Nick, I was sceptical of personal development, hypnotherapy and Life Coaching through naivety and lack of information. I have worked with Nick in a Life Coaching / Hypnotherapy capacity and found it extremely beneficial. He has proved himself as a skilled practitioner helping me personally develop and providing support through this change. The only thing you need in order to progress is a willingness to be honest with yourself and Nick can assist you in any problems. I’d recommend him without hesitation to anyone who wants to personally develop or make a change. Nick has helped me immensely and I’m glad I’ve had the pleasure to work with him. Long may it continue!"
Oliver W – Life Coaching / Personal Development
"I would never imagine I would meet a shrink no matter what shapes or names they use. However Nick you have helped my mind my confidence and views, so recommend your sessions. Aswell as a great down to earth guy, genuinely belief you help people and making money of this comes second you do help people - Just when I thought I was simply a nut. You helped"
Harkamal Kular - Relationship Issues

"I found my sessions to be extremely beneficial to my own personal development. It was a comfortable environment and this helped the atmosphere of the sessions. The broad range of skills and techniques employed achieved the results I desired and the exercises I was taught will continue to benefit me in my daily life.
I have been complimented on a number of occasions on my renewed confidence and this I attribute to the success of the sessions."
Kieron Swords - Confidence

Julie Rawles - Dealing with Serious Family Illness
"When I came to Nick I was confused and anxious and was eager to change my life but didn't know how to. Now I feel focused, in control, able to plan for the future but can still enjoy 'the here and now'.
I now believe in myself and feel happier with who I am. This self belief has given me the drive to apply for promoted posts in my career without the worry of rejection. Family and friends have commented on how relaxed and happier I look. Life knocks no longer get me down!"
Client asked to remain anonymous - Anxiety and Confidence
"Nick, You might not remember but when I first came to see you 2 years ago you got me to play a movie in my head. I chose for it to be me walking across the stage at Warwick Uni to collect my PhD. This afternoon it finally happened."

Sam Lee - Stress Management & Life Coaching
"It was like been with a friend. Without losing sight of why we were both there. Many thanks for all your help and suggestions Nick. I'll be in touch again I'm sure."
Paul Meredith - Hypnotherapy & Life Coaching
"The work with Nick has been invaluble, he helped me come to terms with the difficulties I was having, helping me to assess my life and move forward. He has great insight and is able to read my body language so well. Without Nicks help I would still be struggling to move on, now I can plan for the future.
He is very professional and makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed."
Caroline Hart - Life Coaching & Hypnotherapy
"I went to see Nick for help with weight loss which I found was excellent. He made it very easy to talk & was quick in finding the root of the problem. His advice & guidance has helped me to see that there is a way to get out of a rut & tackle the demons which have caused me to be overweight. The sessions are not a quick fix & Nick cannot wave a magic wand to say you will lose weight, it's learning about being happy & confident with yourself & working towards a better future & positive outcome. Thank you Nick!"
Client asked to remain anonymous - Weight Loss
"I have been a smoker for over 15 years. I have had my session with Nick and I have not even thought about a cigarette. Fantastic!"
Michael Cox - Stopped Smoking
"Nick gave me an outside view on my life. Sometimes you need an independant person to look in. I came away from my course with Nick feeling much happier and confident. I have mad changes to my life that now means I live life to the max. That wouldn't have happened without Nick. Thanks Nick!"
Steph Spencer-Willis - Life Coaching
"For one reason or another I had found myself in a dark space, a forest without a direction out. People would say "get a grip", "it's a choice", "snap out of it". The more I tried, the more conscious I became that I was not making progress, and then further frustration and depression would creep in. That downward feeling would then get a step lower. It is at quite a low point out that I took a "risk" and contacted Nick Davies and sought some counselling/coaching (even though I was somewhat sceptical).
Following my sessions on, the difference in me has been remarkable. Any cynism was ill-founded as I have started to enjoy myself and have fun, feelings I have not had for some time time. I am getting on better with myself and life in general. My friends and family can see that I have "snapped out of it" and to them it's almost by magic. I now have a better relationship with them. I feel that I am out of the woods. Most importantly, Nick has been able to instill in me the vital tools that will hold me in good stead for my future, a future that I can explore now with confidence and positive thoughts and limiting the feeling of fear or being stuck.
I can spend vast amounts of money on treats for myself whether it's a nice meal, new pair of shoes or a night out which can make me feel good for a while. For me, the relatively small amount of money paid to invest in myself with Nick's help has been worth every penny (max 12 sessions). This investment is permenant and keeps paying dividends for me even after the sessions. Nick is interested in moving his clients forward and his dedication in helping make a difference to his clients is inspiring.
Client asked to remain anonymous - Depression
"I was recommended to Nick by a close personal friend. Nick has a caring professional approach to his work which comes over in his sessions. He makes you feel comfortable and approachable.
During the time I have spent with him, he has been able to give me back my confidence to look to the future both in my workplace and family life. Many thanks Nick."
Sue - Self Esteem and Confidence Building
"This is one of the best things I have done to alter my life, I now feel wonderful. It has changed my life, I am looking forward to the future, I am so relaxed. My treatment has been excellent, thank you Nick you have helped me so much."
J. Cowming - Stress Management
"Happy New Year, Nick. I can't remember the last time I was so excited about the start of a new year - there are so many wonderful things that are going to happen for me this year. I know that part of the reason I am so optimistic is the help you've given me over the last year, so thankyou.
Since I saw you last, I lost about a stone in weight - all very easy; no effort at all."
Mary - Weight Loss and Life Coaching
"When we came to see you with our young daughter we were a bit doubtful that things could change, her behaviour had gone on for many years. We had also had counselling with her for 16 months - two hours per week and no change. Coming to see you Nick has been wonderful for us all, she is so much more happy and relaxed and so are we. Thank you for everything, I would recommend you to my friends."
Karen and Jed King - Anxiety and OCD
"Nick has a good understanding of people and there needs also is always striving to improve his knowledge.
Nicks manner can put people as ease very quickly. Nick is are very honest with people about what can be achieved and not out to just grab the money.
He constantly sets new goals in life so he can prove to people that you can do anything if you want to, a good example to everyone who believes in themselves.
I found Nick very committed and passionate about his job and in helping others with the difficulties they may be facing in life even if they don't really understand what has happen themselves, Nick explains everything in human terms."
Adam - Life Coaching
"I felt you were very quick to get to the underlying "gist" of what was going on - after things you said after listening for 5 minutes were things that came as an epiphany after 2hrs of C.B.T....I noticed immediate positive effects...also email feedback and support after the sessions were over were very much appreciated and useful."
Client asked to remain anonymous - Anxiety and Depression Issues
"I first went to see Nick to gain confidence to deal with a situation in my life that was becoming increasingly difficult. I can honestly say without the help, advice and support he has given me my life
would be unbearable. In only a matter of weeks my life has changed dramatically to the point where I am now in control of my own life, something that has been lacking for the last 20 years. I am now looking forward to a whole new way of life. Nick always makes you feel comfortable and relaxed and you can tell that when he says that he wants to help he genuinely means it. Thanks Nick!"
Naomi - Confidence and Relationships
"I was very apprehensive about going to Nick and receiving this sort of treatment for my stress related 'problems'. But after a course of treatment by Nick my confidence was fully restored. I looked forward to my profession again; I was able to plan my days work (both business and home activities; was more assertive when required and generally felt better/fitter and able to live life to the full. All this was down to Nick's skills."
