I’ve never been that impressed by testimonials – unless they come with the names and contact details that can be independently verified. The cynic in me thinks that no one is going to publish anything other than praise. It’s not too dissimilar to authors describing their own book on the cover pretending it’s from an anonymous and independent reviewer. That said, people will often read them and can be influenced by them. Rather like flattery – although one might fully know one is being flattered, one still doesn’t want it to stop!

I hope that by working for two very particular organizations for many many years, (St. Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice and Macmillan support at Leighton Hospital), whose raison d’ĂȘtre is the well-being of their vulnerable patients and their safety, that will go some way to reassure anyone who might be a little uncertain or wary of embarking with hypnotherapy techniques.
