What people say…

I've had to consult Dan over the last few years for two different reasons now and can thoroughly say I've had great outcomes from both as I can describe below.

I'd been a nervous flyer for many years, sometimes choosing to drive on holidays rather than having to fly.  Around 3 years ago I chose a role change in my job that meant I was going to need to move on from my flying fear as I would be travelling to Switzerland at least once a month.  I'd heard a couple of friends talk about hypnotherapy for quitting smoking before and they'd said positive things about it and it had helped them give up.  After a quick Google of those in the area I found Dan and booked myself in.

I instantly found Dan very easy to talk to. Each session started by talking through with Dan how I was in general and then dived into the detail on my previous flying history - the thoughts and feelings I had at the time of the flights, the airport, getting on the plane, the actual parts of the flight etc. He also asked about how I'd like it to be - essentially my target that I wanted to get to.  The second half of the sessions was the hypnotherapy itself - a truly relaxing experience.  Dan is clearly a very good listener as, alongside the background music, he will feed in all that you've discussed in the first part while you're deeply relaxed and taking it all in - eyes shut and thinking about nothing else.

I had around 5 sessions with Dan for my flying fear and had amazingly positive results, going from around 4 flights in 15 years to 24 flights through the next year!  Each time I was leading up to the flight and on the flight itself, my mind was able to somehow refer back to our conversations and also use extra techniques that Dan had explained to move the mind away from the fear.  I've moved on from that job now and actually miss the flying out to Switzerland!

Advancing to around 6 months ago, Coronavirus hit us all and like me, totally changed our daily routines.  For me, gone was the commute to the office on the train, earphones in and reading a booking to learn something new.  Gone was the office interaction and along came the carnage of home-schooling alongside the day job.  This threw me completely and, in early April, a big anxiety problem cropped up and I became very worried about it.  I'd consulted the Mind mental health website to compare the symptoms I was feeling (both mental and physical) and decided I had to act pretty quickly.  My very next step was to make contact with Dan again to ask for his help and more hypnotherapy sessions for my anxiety.  I only had a couple of sessions this time (with the added technical challenge of it being over Zoom due to total lockdown!) but again, they really helped me.

In my own personal list of benefits of working with Dan, high on the list would always be just the chance of talking the issue through with someone and not trying to deal with it on your own.  If you're like me, you'll then find the hypnotherapy part a zen-like experience that you'll want to return to again and again.  Dan also provides a selection of downloadable audio files to listen to in your own time which I tend to do at least on a weekly basis!

Dan Regan has been a real life line for me. I’ve used his therapy and downloads in the past and found them to be incredibly beneficial. Hypnotherapy carried out in his own style has worked so well with me that when this Covid crisis began I started to use his podcasts everyday. They turned me from a tearful emotional wreck to being someone who can deal with the situation much calmer and rationally. I don’t know how he does it, he just does. If you are lost in a world of stress and anxiety he will place your feet very firmly “back in the room” Quite simply I can not recommend this kind, witty, considerate man enough.

Feedback from my Fear of Flying Course with Sim2do


I wanted you to know that I had a wonderful trip to Morocco. Partly because the flights to and from were absolutely fine for me, thanks in the most part to both of you. Your enthusiasm for flying, your clear descriptions of how planes worked and your complete confidence in aviation Serena enabled me to be interested in the plane and actually enjoy almost everything about the flight! Especially landing in Marrakech, which looked just like it did on the simulator!

I used your downloads, Dan, on take -off and landing and found just having your calming voice in my ear really helpful. I particularly found the concept of being in control of my reactions to the flight helpful, even though I wasn’t in control of the plane, it was a good distinction to make.

So an enormous thank you to you both for your care, support, and  professionalism it enabled me to have the most fantastic holiday,

Hypnotherapy with Dan Regan has been life changing for me in the best possible way.


I have struggled with self esteem and anxiety issues my whole life and thought it was something I had to put up with. I was amazed that after the very first session I felt calmer, slept better than I ever have and in control of my negative thoughts. This feeling improved week by week to the point where other people noticed the changes in me to. I have loved this experience and would whole heartedly recommend Dan Regan hypnotherapy to anyone struggling with similar issues.


Thank you so much Dan!

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.
