The Isle of Wight County Press reports on Dens’ forty years as a hypnotherapist.
THE Isle of Wight’s Den Clare has celebrated his 40th year as a practising hypnotherapist on the Island.
Now semi-retired, Den says Covid-19 has made us all review our lives and make necessary adjustments to our living styles.
Unable to see his clients at his home or at his office address, Den has been using apps Skype and Zoom in the interim.
Den says it has allowed people to get help from the comfort of their own homes without the inconvenience of travel, and is equally as effective as one-to-one visits, and every bit as secure and confidential.
Den, through hypnotherapy, can help his clients overcome a myriad of problems affecting their lives, from arachnophobia to smoking.
He has lived on the Isle of Wight since 1960 and previously served as a police constable.
He was also a cub scout leader in Shanklin.
While not medically qualified, Den has studied complementary medicines since the age of 15 and has been a registered healer with the National Federation of Healers since 1976.
His hypnotherapy training started in 1968 and is still ongoing.
He is a certified master hypnotist and hypnotherapist, and is also fully registered to practice in the states of California and Florida, where he frequently attends seminars, conferences and further instruction.
In England, Den is a full member of the National Council of Psychotherapists, and counselling courses at Guildford University have helped him further his understanding of human behaviour.
