What people say…

I brought my 10 year old son to see Dan at a point where I was completely lost as to how to help him. He had always showed signs of being a little anxious and in particular anxiety around being ill. Interestingly he is a really healthy child rarely even catching a cold and I think he has only had a sickness bug twice in his life.

 

He was always very thorough with washing his hands and would always be very wary around people who had been sick or felt sick. He would avoid them long after the 48 recommended hours.

 

But he did finally get a sickness bug this Easter. We thought he would find it hard, but he would finally realise that as horrible as it is, it’s all over pretty quickly and he would then not be so worried about it.

 

The complete opposite happened and although he appeared to deal with the bug ok a week later, he stopped eating and drinking for fear of being sick. He developed lots of safety behaviour habits that he thought would prevent him ever being sick again. He couldn’t go in his room, was scared to go up the stairs, couldn’t go in the bathroom on his own, couldn’t sleep on his own and many many more things. Getting him into school was a struggle, he missed lessons, stopped eating at school, stopped going to after school clubs. He was having several panic and anxiety attacks every day. It was like having a completely different child and my husband and I felt totally useless as we couldn’t seem to help him.

 

He was losing weight, but nothing could persuade him to eat. We went to the GP who said he could refer us, but it could be up to a year for him to be seen.

 

I had seen Dan’s blog on Facebook and saw on his website that he had helped people with phobias (I learnt from one of Dan’s posts that Oliver’s phobia was called Emetaphobia)and the related anxiety and panic that goes with them. So, I booked a free initial consultation and just hoped it was going to help.

 

Oliver was so scared to go; he didn’t know what Dan was going to do and he was very tearful and quiet when we arrived. I had already emailed Dan to tell him about Oliver and how nervous he was, and Dan had put my mind at ease about going.

 

Dan kept the first consultation so relaxed, friendly and calm that by the end Oliver had started to talk about how he felt and when we left Oliver said ‘Dan gets me doesn’t he’. When I asked Oliver if he would like to go back and see Dan, he said yes straight away.

 

Over the next few sessions Dan worked with Oliver to deal with his panic and anxiety giving him several methods and techniques to use. Some seemed so simple but proved so effective and easy enough for Oliver as a 10-year-old to understand and follow through with. He also helped me to understand what Oliver was feeling and the language I could use when he was panicking in order to help him.

 

Dan was so good at relating to Oliver, I felt that he very quickly understood Oliver’s personality and what would work for him.

 

Each week in between sessions Oliver made small improvements and he was always so excited to see Dan to tell him what he had achieved.

 

So, with Dan’s help Oliver started eating again, sleeping in his own bed, being able to be away from us and see his friends, go into school without panicking and being able to stay in lessons. He also learnt what to do if he had a panic attack.

 

We listened to several of Dan’s hypnosis downloads, all of which were extremely helpful, and we will continue to use those.

 

We will also continue to see Dan on an ad-hoc basis as I think it will help Oliver to keep on top of his anxiety and to remind him of what methods and techniques he can use. Dan was also very good at making Oliver realise that this was a small part of his life and it wasn’t going to take over from all the positive things going on.

 

I would highly recommend to anyone of any age dealing with a phobia and the related anxiety that comes along with it to go and see Dan. I can’t speak highly enough about the work Dan does and his ability to relate to people on an individual basis. He is so easy to talk to and the results speak for themselves.

 

I am so pleased we took Oliver to see Dan for that initial consultation and I hope that by writing this testimonial there may be someone else who is having a difficult time that will seek Dan’s help.

 

Thank you Dan

I promised to let you know how the travelling went – you know how much I was dreading it! The difference was AMAZING! I really find the strategies and techniques a huge help and used the methods during take-off, turbulence and landing – on both flights. I even managed to look through the window before we took off on the return flight, as I unfortunately had a window seat!

 

All in all, I was so pleased with the outcome and it was the best travel experience I can remember, insomuch as I didn’t feel nauseas at all! Even when the pilot mentioned turbulence, I managed to concentrate on my techniques.

 

The improvement, from how I was, to how I am now, has been nothing short of incredible – thank you.

I have visited Dan a number of times. He's friendly and the hypnotherapy has been a great help. I find listening to the hypnotherapy recording before sleep very helpful too.

I found Dan very easy to talk to which I think that’s important. My son died at 18 in 2010. I got into triathlon to help me block out the way I felt. I thought I was doing fine until I started a race 5 May 2019, I had a panic attack in the water at the start of this race. My life was going down hill. I also did Ironman in 2016 so I had been in the water lots of time.

With Dan's help I did my race on 7 July 2019. I could have easily walked away so I highly recommended Dan. .I find his Anxiety No More hypnosis download is fantastic . I’m still seeing Dan . I also found Father's Day hard and my son's birthday since seeing Dan. For the first time in 9 years instead of sitting around and feeling sorry for myself I really enjoyed those days this year still thinking about my son but in really good way. Thank you Dan.

In this testimonial video, Sandie describes how she started her hypnotherapy sessions after a serious road traffic accident where she was knocked off her bike. Her initial sessions helped her to overcome her fear of getting back on her bike (which as a triathlete was pretty important to her). Subsequent sessions have helped her to combat anxiety and to deal with the aftermath of her accident and how it has affected her life. Sandie highly recommends Dan Regan Hypnotherapy!

Five months ago I went to see Dan after sustaining horrific injuries when I was involved in a cycling accident. As I was hit from behind by a car I was terrified at the thought of getting back on my bike. A friend recommended Dan and all I can say is that this picture says it all. This weekend I actually rode out on my bike! Not far and nowhere near where I was but it’s all about starting small and aiming big. I know however that none of this would’ve been possible without this kind, gentle and understanding man. Dan you are a true ambassador for hypnotherapy and how much it can really help, words can’t express how grateful I am. Keep it up! You make a difference to so many people.
