    Absolutely amazing experience and service. Very relaxing and calming, helped me amazingly with my fear of ferry travel, which is very helpful when living somewhere surrounded by water?! Will definitely be recommending anyone who has any … More issue in their life. Can't thank you enough for changing the way I look at things and behave with this fear. Thank you Clare

    I had my first appointment with Den Clare 21 years ago this month. I had made many attempts to stop smoking over the years and had tried everything, patches, fake cigarettes, chewing gum, pellets under the tongue, everything to no avail. … More One week after this meeting I smoked my last cigarette. I kept a packet of pellets on me and after a week I had the occasional one, until the packet ran out. I have recommended many people to Mr Clare and as far as a I know they have all been successful. I wouldn't be around now if it wasn't for Den, of that I am sure. Big thank you Den Clare.

From The Hypnotic World of Paul McKenna (T.V. Personality)

Written to Den after he attended a Seminar with Paul in a London Hospital

Dear Den,

Hypnosis is an extremely powerful psychological technique. It can be particularly helpful with overcoming certain problems, fears, phobias and for behavioural changes like stopping smoking and losing weight amongst others.

Your brain is the world’s most advanced bio-computer. Hypnosis is a very effective way of communicating with your unconcious mind, the larger mind, which is all your wisdom, memories and true potential, so you could say that hypnotherapy is positive software for your brain.

Best Wishes,

Paul


Should you try Hypnotherapy?

by the late Dr. Douglas Quantrill

Before I retired I was Medical Officer of Health for the Island for about thirty years and in that capacity I had, from time to time to review the health or rather the ill health of the Island community. What did I find? I found that the main health hazards were addictions to cigarettes, alcohol and overeating. Advice was therefore given to discourage these addictions but it had little effect. Telling people to give up smoking for example is easier said than done!

We Doctors are not always much help with these problems. We cannot always control even our own addictions, as everyone knows!

In recent years however, considerable success has resulted from Hypnosis and anti-smoking clinics run by a Hypnotherapist which became quite popular on the Isle of Wight.

If Hypnotherapy can help those addicted to tobacco it should, of course, help people with other addictions especially the addiction to food which causes obesity – still one of the biggest health problems in the Country. Most people try special diets, but very often fail to keep to them for any length of time. Pills that reduce appetite may help but many Doctors, and I am one of them, think that taking pills is too risky. The advantage of Hypnotherapy is that it has no bad effects and does not demand an excessive amount of will power.

The commonest minor ailment which Doctors have to deal with is probably insomnia. Sleeping pills can of course be helpful if taken very occasionally, but too many people take them regularly and either become addicted to them or suffer from the side affects. Hypnotherapy is very helpful to people with sleeping problems. It is also so good at relaxing people that some dentists use it instead of anaesthetic when taking teeth out. I must point out, however, that one would not need a Hypnotherapist every night in order to get to sleep! You can be taught SELF HYPNOSIS which enables you to put yourself to sleep.

I know it works because I have tried it!


From Bill Buckley- Radio and T.V. Presenter

“I first met Den seven years ago when he was a guest on my programme on BBC Radio Solent. He hypnotised me before the show, and it was a delightful and surprising experience.

Like many people new to hypnosis, I imagined I would be totally in his power, behaving like an automaton. Instead I felt relaxed and peaceful and in control. I felt I could bring the session to an end at any time, but I certainly didn’t want to because it was so nice!

I am pleased to say I don’t have any major problems I want to put right – I don’t smoke, I am not afraid of heights or spiders, I don’t lack confidence for example. (I must be either extremely fortunate or very bad at spotting my own shortcomings!). Anyway, because of this, I can’t personally say that hypnosis has changed my life, but I know Den has changed many lives, sometimes after just one session of hypnosis.

I hope that you enjoy reading his booklet, and I am sure you will find, as I did, that the more you know about the subject, the more beneficial, harmless and fascinating hypnosis turns out to be.”

From a local doctor to Den Clare

Alternative therapies are complementary to traditional medicine. Indeed many Doctors practice the more established alternative treatments such as Hypnosis, Osteopathy and Homeopathy as part of their daily work.

The demands of the N.H.S. in terms of time available per consultation means that many Doctors recognise the value of their patients receiving additional help from the alternative therapist.

Hypnosis is a very valuable aid to psychologically based problems such as smoking, obesity, anxiety and where psychological problems influence medical diseases, such as asthma and eczema.

Those therapists devoting time to counselling as part of their therapy will satisfy the needs of many of their clients. This is particularly true of Hypnotherapy.
