The Weekly Post reporter who visited Den to write a feature on slimming with hypnosis stated in her article on Friday, May 15th 1981:

“The Hypnotherapy had an amazing effect on my life . . . . . .  and it worked”. In a further article which appeared on March 2nd, 1984 the success of the reporter in stopping smoking was detailed.
