What Client Thinks ?
I went to see Derry due to an oral fixation I had where I would pick my lips to the point they bled. This had been going on as long as I remember despite various efforts to stop.
My mum took me to see Derry at a particularly bad lip-picking time. Within 3 weeks of the first session my lip picking all but stopped and has since completely stopped after one more session.
Derry made me feel very comfortable and relaxed, a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I am very grateful he has helped me to end a life-long bad habit. I would and will 100% recommend.
I wanted to be hypnotised because I wanted to read and knew I needed to get better at reading, but I hated reading.
Derry helped me with hypnosis. I learnt that reading isn’t just reading sentences and words, it’s actually about going into the book and into the adventure.
Now I think it’s quite fun. Once I get to a book that I like reading I actually get stuck into it. I like reading now. I’ve read a lot more books.
(His mum writes: ‘This is a picture of Isaac with his reads from the summer holiday. We had our parent-teacher interview this week and when the teacher asked if Isaac liked reading he grinned and said “Well…” and then told his story about being hypnotised to like reading. That very afternoon he’d beaten me home from school and I found him on his bed reading while he waited for me. ‘)
“Hypnotherapy is amazing and everyone should do it. Working with Derry and using hypnotherapy has made a huge difference to how I see myself and my life.
I’ve had problems with low self-confidence and low self-esteem all my life. This has had a negative effect on my mental health and I’ve had periods of depression that required medication. It was during one of these periods that I knew I needed to do something to change how I think and someone suggested hypnotherapy. I’ve tried many things that worked a little but didn’t change anything on a deep, subconscious level.
The work I’m doing with Derry has changed my thought patterns and my feelings. I’m no longer such a people pleaser and I’m beginning to stand up for myself. I now see myself differently and see how I deserve love and to be treated well and with respect.
I know now that I’m loveable and I live my life in that knowledge. In the first session I felt quite nervous and vulnerable but Derry has made me feel safe and supported through each session that has allowed me to really trust him and work though some important things.
Derry is warm, friendly, open, trustworthy and professional with a talent to put people at ease. I thoroughly enjoy each session and look forward to it. It makes it fun and enjoyable to work though stuff.”
“I had been suffering from a mental illness for around a year and a half and had sought help from doctors and other medical professionals which helped stabilise me but did not really solve the underlying issues. I was wanting help with controlling my panic attacks. My mum suggested seeing Derry, as she had found her session with him very helpful. I had never tried hypnotherapy before, and honestly thought it was a limited field that was for entertainment purposes only. I was wrong.
The session was more than I expected and I have not had any more panic attacks. I went in with an open mind, Derry asked a few questions about what I wanted but did not pry into my life details. I came out of the session feeling calm, relaxed and not on edge at all. It was amazing. Looking back on my session over the past few weeks I have come to realise that not only has it helped me with my panic attacks and anxiety, it has also helped me heal and get closure from the passing of those dear to me. The session was more than I expected; from just one session I am now living a more balanced and panic-free life”.
“An excellent experience. Derry’s passion for this speaks to me. I came wanting to release limiting beliefs and the experience was one of deepening self-awareness… bringing core issues into the light, but with support. After our sessions, I felt whole.”
“I would like to thank you for this experience. I have been treated for anxiety and depression and wanted to resolve issues I have had with low mood, anger and trouble relaxing. I wanted to feel positivity and enthusiasm.
During the session, the memory and thoughts of what was a very tough time in my life spontaneously returned. I had almost forgotten about this; hadn’t thought about this episode for a very long time … now I feel almost at peace with what happened and actually want that memory to remain.
The feeling I had after this session was one I had not had for a very long time. I felt excited, I could not stop smiling.
Since that session I have been much happier with myself, my surroundings and the people I share my life with. Thank you so much for the opportunity”
“Derry, has a lovely manner that made me feel safe. He helped to alter my perspective of me, changing negative to positive, therefore enabling me to embrace the whole of me. The session was an extraordinary experience of being taken into an altered state while remaining aware and feeling safe.
Afterwards, I feel much more empowered within myself… much more accepting, more content with the whole of me. Many thanks for this experience, I look forward to our next meeting.”
