“ I went to Alan Gilchrist about 7 years ago to help me stop smoking and from the day I left the consultation I have never smoked a cigarette since.

I went back to see Alan to see if he could help once again to move on and begin living my life again.

After just 3 consultations I am a new person and have completely let go of the past. I am positive, can see a future and realise now how much time I have wasted living in the past and can see a very bright future ahead of me.

His treatment was wonderful! I am only annoyed that I did not seek his help many years ago.

I really do feel great now and would say to anyone who feels the way I did, do not wait another day, go and seek help, I am only sorry that I waited so long and wasted so many years.

Thanks to Alan Gilchrist I am now living each day to the full. So many, many thanks Alan!………. Jacqui “

“ Alan, I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you!

When I first came to see you I was going through one of the most upsetting, stressful work related incidents I could only have imagined in my worst nightmares.

You firstly calmed me down, which I didn’t think was possible, you helped me get through what was happening and although the outcome was still incredibly unfair – I managed to deal with it.

I am in a positive frame of mind and rarely suffer from the stress caused, I still listen to the cd you created when I need to and it helps me realise there is always hope and that I am a good person, the situation was out of my control.

I am looking forward to whatever is around the corner for me and I am grateful to you for getting me to this point.

Thank you so much,

Shona “

” Dear Reader,

I am a 35 year old personal assistant who works for a consultant in the NHS.

I was a confident person until a few years ago, following problems at my work place when I developed panic attacks.

I was off work for several months as it got to the stage where I was terrified to leave my home and I was prescribed anti – depressants by my G.P. My IBS was very severe and when I was able to leave my home, I was always panicking about not finding a bathroom on time and being able to leave meetings etc. if I needed to.

This has had a terrible and long lasting effect on my confidence and my perception of who I am.

Recently I had been experiencing new stressors and decided to do something about it before I got full blown panic attacks once more.

I couldn’t go through all that again and I didn’t want to take tablets. I did an internet search and found Alan Gilchrist who specialises in phobias and rehabilitating thought processes through hypnotism and arranged an appointment to see him.

This has been the best decision I have ever made!

Alan is so easy to talk to. His warmth and professionalism ensures that you know you can tell him anything without him being judgemental, and from our initial consultation, there have been dramatic changes in my life.

I feel more like my old self, more confident, more positive and more aware of who I am, what I want and more importantly, I am no longer afraid to go and get it !

In fact, I have – I am in the process of enrolling in an Open University diploma course to further my academic studies, something I would not have dreamed I could do a few years ago. Other things I have noted include, situations don’t get on top of me as much, as I am much more relaxed.

I sleep better and don’t suffer the tension pains in my shoulders and neck the same way I used to. In a strange twist, I’ve started to lose weight as I’m not comfort eating any more.

Happy days !

I have really enjoyed my sessions with Alan and would sincerely recommend him to you.

He can and will make a difference to your life. Deborah……”

“Dear Alan, I’ve had a fantastic summer, my confidence in myself has been growing and I am learning to accept myself.

I can’t express the calm I feel now compared with the terrible mess I was in before I came to see you.”

“Hello Alan,

I was with you for treatment for my confidence issue at the beginning of October and I must say I got a lot from it.

I experienced myself as a normal happy person and I really enjoyed it. Rob”

“Dear Alan,I should’ve written this a long time ago to THANK YOU.

Last year I visited you and the magic you performed worked! I’m so much more confident and I’m not afraid to try new things.

Kindest regards Alison”

” Dear Alan, Just a note to thank you for your help during the past while.

This is like a new start for me. With your help I have lost weight and kept it off over Christmas with no problem.

My confidence and self-esteem are improving beyond anything I could have wished for – at long last I am in control of my life and have the confidence to do what I want.

My relationship with my husband has really seen the benefits. I wish I had visited you sooner. All the best R “

“Dear Alan, I am writing to let you know how things are going.

When I came to see you for the first time I was not happy about how I felt about myself, I didn’t have much confidence in talking to people on the telephone and going into banks , that sort of thing, it was always a problem

.I was always quiet in school and also in my first job as an electrician. My boss was always putting me down. 13 years later I told him I was leaving for another job. REVENGE!

I felt really good and always thought that I would be stuck in the same job.

I have been in my current job for nearly a year and things are good, but because of my last boss was nasty to me I felt really uneasy talking to people.

It seemed to come natural to everyone else.I came to you for help and the first few sessions were good, I actually began to be truly happy and live my life. I felt so good inside.

I don’t have much of a problem on the phone or going into a bank any more.

Since seeing you I have been to barbecues and going out with pals from work. I always did go out with lots of friends and family, but I was always happy to take a back seat, but not now!. It’s CLASS !

Many Thanks Gary. P.S. Its good to talk! “

” Dear Alan, Just a note to let you know how things have been going since I last saw you. I’ve had a fantastic summer, my confidence in myself has been growing and I am learning to accept myself.

I can’t express the calm I feel now compared with the mess I was in before I came to see you. I know I have a long way to go but I know that with your help I will make it.

See you when I get back. Richard “

“Hello Alan, hope you are keeping well, it feels like I am getting better.

Even on the day of the session I felt more confident, the day after, talking to people felt much easier. J.”

” Dear Alan, this is a long overdue letter of thanks for the help you gave me several years ago whenever I had lost total confidence after a sudden bereavement.

Only for your assistance I would have never have resumed my career as a tutor or to face people again.

I have great pleasure in telling you that I have no difficulty now in speaking in public and taking my classes.

So very many thanks to you Alan. Sincerely Lily “

 ” Dear Alan, Just a little note to let you know that things have been going great since last week.

The stammer hasn’t gone 100% but its well on the way to going. I am still listening to the CD and it’s a great help. I just wanted to thank you for all your help.

Thanks again Siobhan “

” Dear Alan, just a short note to say thank you very much for all your help.

When I first visited you I thought I was beyond help. My thoughts were so negative and I had lost interest in everything around me. Well I must tell you that after my first session I definitely noticed an improvement.

After my next few sessions the change in my anxiety state was really amazing. My thoughts are now more positive . I am more confident and totally relaxed.

I can honestly say that I have made a full recovery and back to my old self again, which is great. Hypnotherapy really worked for me.

Many thanks again Sylvia “

” Dear Alan,I have waited until now to write to you because I wanted to give myself time to get properly into a sleep pattern again- after 6 years it took a bit of time!

First of all thank you, I have received the best Christmas present ever, a regular sleep pattern!. Since I last saw you it has been brilliant, leaving me much more sociable, confident, relaxed, but more importantly-HAPPY.

I only have the odd bad night but that’s nothing because I know the next night I’ll sleep!. I hope everything is well with you.

What you do is very important and to know someone is there who can help and understand means an awful lot.

Regards Anita “
