Client Testimonials

“I was delighted when Russell’s help gave me an almost effortless way to tackle my issues”

“I came to see Russell about a specific problem but found that his sensitive questioning and incisive techniques led me to explore complex underlying issues which had been lying dormant and unacknowledged for some years, many of them dating back to childhood. Given my background as a psychiatrist, I am used to talking treatments taking months or even years to take effect, often requiring much effort and even pain on the behalf of the person receiving therapy, sometimes producing very variable results.

I was delighted when Russell’s help gave me an almost effortless way to tackle my issues and I’ve experienced a swift, almost magical transformation in my internal world, which has led on to positive snowball effects extending out into my outer life. The external issues I came to for therapy began to vanish as problems after only three sessions and I now feel happier in myself, more focussed and more motivated than I have for some years.

I recommend Russell as a therapist – he is sensitive, very skilled and the therapy he performs was very highly effective.”

 

“My performance level has reached heights I never thought possible”

“The work I have done with Russell has been a key factor in transforming my game. He has given me mental tools which work under even the most intense pressure – my confidence and performance level have subsequently reached heights I never thought possible.

I would encourage everyone, whether playing professionally or just for fun, to invest in developing this essential side of the game- you will find your enjoyment grow exponentially and the results will speak for themselves.”

“You helped me in so many ways and I will always be very grateful for your guidance, wisdom and support”

S was offered her dream job the other side of the world.  Even though her family were desperate to go she couldn’t decide whether to take it or not. She felt guilty about leaving her current position and her family even though she knew they would be OK.

She came to see me to gain some clarity of mind.  She soon realised her thinking was affecting her in more ways than she thought, preventing her from being free to be herself, enjoy what she does more and take opportunities as they arise.

“Life over here just gets better and better and it was, without a shadow of a doubt, what I was meant to do. Within 3 months, they created a new position within my and made me head of the unit. 

I truly believe I was meant to come. I don’t think I would have come here with the confidence I had or the belief I was supposed to do this if I hadn’t come to see you before I left.

You helped me in so many ways and I will always be very grateful for your guidance, wisdom and support.”

“I was very surprised how quickly the therapy had worked for me”

“I was very surprised how quickly the therapy had worked for me. Once I had understood that the unhappy thoughts that were circulating around my head were just a story I had invented, and that they did not represent the truth about my situation, my healing took place extremely rapidly. Also the understanding has remained with me and I have found that the original symptoms have just dropped away and been forgotten.”

“Someone said me to recently that every coach needs a coach. Russell is that coach”

“I am a therapist who has found Russell’s guidance invaluable. As a therapist or coach we give of ourselves freely, however there are times when we all need to go back to the source and receive guidance for our own wellbeing. Someone said me to recently that every coach needs a coach. Russell Davis is that coach.”

“Having Cognitive Hypnotherapy with Russell Davis is the best decision I have ever made”

“I have spent the last thirty years trying every diet ever devised with varying degrees of temporary success. Having Cognitive Hypnotherapy with Russell Davis is the best decision I have ever made. He has changed my relationship with food so that I am now losing weight steadily, and enjoying exercising. Thank you Russell from the bottom of my heart.”

“My husband was amazed and I am delighted! Thank you Russell”

“I have suffered from sea-sickness for as long as I can remember. Having tried every known ‘cure’ without success, it was suggested that I try hypnotherapy. Russell made me feel very welcome and instantly put me completely at ease. Just one session with him and the follow-up listening to the mp3 recording has cured my seasickness! My first trip out about a month after my treatment was a ‘baptism of fire’ as conditions were quite rough, but I had no symptoms whatsoever. My husband was amazed and I am delighted! Thank you Russell!!!”

“I did a pregnancy test yesterday and it was positive”

“I really found Russell’s self hypnosis mp3 helped keep me relaxed during the whole IVF process. There were 2 days when didn’t get to listen, I actually found myself getting much more anxious the second day, but only realised it when I went back to listening to it and found myself more relaxed again. It was also great when we found one ovary wasn’t responding much, to have it to help me focus my mind on encouraging it, we ended up getting 2 eggs from that ovary, so it obviously worked. You will be pleased to hear that I did a pregnancy test yesterday and it was positive.”

“Russell set me free from the hold food had over me”

“After over 20 years of battling with food, and having tried virtually every organised slimming club, fad diet, diet doctor and other hypnotherapists, Russell set me free from the hold food had over me. No longer do snacks call to me from the fridge, cupboard or supermarket shelf; I stop eating when I’m full, and I find it much easier to make healthy choices. I don’t want to put any of that rubbish in my body anymore. The sessions were so successful that my husband is now seeing Russell too!”

“You have helped me be more of myself”

“I feel a deep reconnection with my life purpose now. You have helped me be more of myself, more fully. Thank you for that”

“No nerves!”

“Public speech went fine, no nerves!”

“I now have greater confidence in myself and my abilities”

“Russell has not only changed my way of thinking, enabling me to handle certain situations that had been problematic for years; but his sessions have also equipped me with coping mechanisms to face potential challenges in the future. I immediately felt at ease from my first session with Russell, as not only is he understanding and caring, but also enabled me to be in control and aware of every change taking place by talking my issue through and explaining how the solution would work. I have learnt a lot from my sessions with Russell, and now have greater confidence in myself and my abilities as a result”

“Finally, I could, thanks to Russell and his wonderful way of therapy”

“I needed to deal with some heavy issues and thanks to Russell I managed to. It’s something that I have been wanting to do for years and wasn’t able to, and now finally, I could, thanks to Russell and his wonderful way of therapy.”

“It was easy to slowly unravel the depth of the problem”

“A very professional service and great understanding and empathy which meant it was easy to slowly unravel the depth of the problem and hence resolve it.”

“I feel much more positive and more in control”

“I have say that since I started listening to the tracks I feel much more positive and more in control about facing into my fertility treatment this summer. It definitely has a calming and relaxing effect on me as I often fall asleep towards the end of the track”.

“I have now started a new journey to achieve inner peace”

“You have helped me to understand that I have several layers that I need to look after, not just the physical being. I have always neglected my inner self but have now started a new journey to achieve inner peace.”

“Russell is the first professional that my son has opened up to”

“My son was bullied at his secondary school and as a result of this became school phobic. He had been seen by psychiatrists and psychologist with little effect and his anxiety and panic attacks persisted even at home.

Russell is the first professional that my son has opened up to. Russell has helped him with his anxiety and panic attacks and is building up his self esteem and confidence. He is now able to relax and begin to unravel some of the damaging experiences he has had. Russell has taken the time to get to know and respect my son which both of us appreciate.”

“By my last session with you I was back to my normal self”

“Thank you so much for all the help you gave me when I visited you a few weeks ago with a broken arm, resulting in trauma, depression and panic attacks.

When I first came to see you, I really didn’t think there would be anything you could do for me, but by my last session with you I was back to my normal self! The work that you did with me was so enlightening, I didn’t realise my situation was being caused by my own thinking and past experiences! but with your help and hypnotherapy, I now have a much better understanding of how the mind works. I would, without hesitation, recommend to anyone to come and see you, to benefit from your help in the same way that I have.

Thank you for helping to put me back together again! I won’t hesitate to contact you in the future if I find myself in difficulty again.”

“Helped me to start each IVF cycle with a positive frame of mind”

“Hypnotherapy with Russell helped me to gain perspective, deal with things one thing at a time and to regain a feeling of calm when I felt my life was completely out of control. Also, to understand that whatever happened in my life…..it would all work out ok in the end. Hypnotherapy also helped me to start each IVF cycle with a positive frame of mind that the cycle could actually work and gave me the strength to continue.

During the IVF process which was completely out of my control, the mp3 recording helped me to feel that I was able to make a positive contribution to my treatment over and above the usual not drinking caffeine or alcohol. It helped me to remain calm and relaxed at very stressful times and also gave me a feeling of empowerment. Russell also taught me a number of techniques which I could use on my own to help me through key parts of the cycle.”

“With Russell’s help I was freed from this depression”

“I was suffering from mild to more severe depression and with Russell’s help I was freed from this depression. I have had weekly sessions with him for about two months and the depression has not surfaced again since then. I am feeling much happier now.”

Within four weeks Gill was no longer craving food

For as long as she could remember Gill had turned to food at times of stress and when wanting some comfort. She also had a tendency of overeating and not being aware of when she was full and had had enough. Within four weeks Gill was no longer craving food in between meals, was eating more healthily and for the first time in her life stopping when she was full regardless of whether the plate was clear. She loved the comments from her friends that she looked so much thinner!

She and her family were amazed at how much more relaxed she was

Sarah was approaching her third IVF cycle and was feeling very anxious about it as well and doubting whether it could really work. She wanted to change this as she was aware that our thoughts can affect our biology and thus her chances of conceiving. We worked on enabling her to imagine a fulfilled life beyond the IVF cycle regardless of the outcome, whilst at the same time installing a belief that it really can work. She and her family were amazed at how much more relaxed she was approaching and going through this cycle.

“I gained a couple of insights, and a method of triggering positive feelings”

“I attended one session with Russell, with the aim of improving the mental/emotional side of playing sport, in particular with golf. I gained a couple of insights, and a method of triggering positive feelings before playing each shot. I now incorporate this trigger when I play, and it works.”

 

John found a sense of ‘letting go’ and moving on

John was finding it hard to let go of his previous relationship. This was affecting his ability to be happy in a new one.

After a two of sessions Vicky felt free of and over her old boyfriend as well as having a renewed self confidence

Vicky had broken up with her boyfriend six months before coming to see me but couldn’t let him go emotionally, even though she knew deep down he was not good for her. Looking back she could see her previous boyfriends had been the same.

After a two of sessions Vicky felt free of and over her old boyfriend as well as having a renewed self confidence, now believing she was worth more. This renewed confidence gave her more energy she felt far more positive about the future.

She found she was free from her bad habits

Jacky had found it difficult to lose the weight she had gained since having children. Having tried all the various diets over the years she was felt frustrated with the cycle of losing/regaining weight. After working together for 5 weeks she found she was free from her bad habits, emotional eating and for the first time felt in control of her eating having created a more positive relationship with food. She was surprised how easy it was to cut out her ‘vices’ like cheese without any cravings for them.

After four sessions she found she was free from the cravings

Dianne wanted to lose weight and stop snacking on sugary foods, particularly at times of stress suspecting it was linked to her self esteem. We identified and removed some unhelpful associations with food and self esteem from her childhood and after four sessions she found she was free from the cravings and enjoying her new freedom with food. She also enjoyed an increase in self esteem, no longer being effected from ‘unhelpful’ comments from her father.

She felt liberated and free to be herself

Suzanne had a low self confidence and would become shy and withdrawn in conversations with groups imagining that people thought she was boring. After four sessions she felt liberated and free to be herself, no longer worrying about what other people thought of her.

After three sessions David was amazed at how relaxed he was

David had been recently promoted at work in to a management role. His low confidence was affecting his performance and happiness at work. He didn’t feel able to contribute freely to meetings and was extremely nervous speaking to groups. After three sessions David was amazed at how relaxed he was in being himself in group situations and as a result was happy at work, enjoying the job he dreamed of having.

“Suddenly everything started to fall in to place”

Gill’s insecure thinking was impacting her career and relationship.  She now has a new job and is getting married!

“Russell is very calm, reassuring and laid back, but don’t be fooled, he’s very skilled but it’s all terribly subtle!  After a few sessions I wasn’t sure I was actually making any progress at all but then suddenly everything started to fall into place and I then made rapid progress. He helps you to help yourself. I couldn’t possibly have done it without him, and shall remain eternally grateful. I would recommend him unreservedly.”

“Thank you isn’t enough to show you how grateful I am”

“Thank you isn’t enough to show you how grateful I am for your kind words and support through a difficult time in my life.

After having only a few sessions with you, you made me realise how much of a stressful burden I had been carrying which became the negative focus in my life.

With your help, I have managed to break the cycle of stressful negative thoughts and am learning to live in the here and now. I would never have been able to do this without your support for which I will never forget. Thank you very much.”

“l’ve now found myself a new job, relocated and started a new life for myself”

“l had several sessions with Russell a year ago, at first l was unaware of the changes that where occurring; friends noticed and said that l was more confident and appeared to have moved on. l’ve now found myself a new job, relocated and started a new life for myself its something l would have never imagined. Thanks Russell”

“I am very grateful to Russell for his guidance and support in making a more contented me”

“I approached Russell to help me rebalance my relationship with food, as it had gotten to the point where it was in control of me. After identifying some unhelpful underlying thoughts and feelings and then letting these go, I was surprised at how differently I saw food and how its power over me had disappeared.

I no longer seek out food as a pointless way of responding to emotions and situations, plus I find it much easier to not pay too much attention to unnecessary thoughts that pop into my head. This process of change has been wonderfully easy, as I don’t have to keep working at it – it’s an insight I’m confident is a permanent one.

My sessions with Russell have also been very helpful for other aspects of my life too, as the principles can apply to every situation. I generally feel lighter in myself for letting go of things that I didn’t realise were having an impact on me.

I’m pleased I gave cognitive hypnotherapy a chance and am very grateful to Russell for his guidance and support in making a more contented ‘me’.”

“This would be the first time in MONTHS that I could have ovulated”

“At a scan on day 10, my doctor saw a follicle looking good on my ovary – this would be the first time in MONTHS that I could have ovulated myself (that’s if I did of course!) so I really do believe it must be down to the hypnosis as it couldn’t really be a coincidence!”

All my complex issues simply melted away. Truly inspiring.
