For anyone seeking focused personal development, I recommend Philip highly.
His sessions have an added bonus of producing a remarkable feeling of sustained tranquility and calm. Only you can do the work, but he certainly can provide you with a unique set of skills to aid you in your efforts for change. (Martin, Worthing)
Through Philip’s support, I was able to deal with my challenges in a more structured way and with a positive outlook. I now feel more empowered, confident and importantly in control of how I deal with situations around me.
(Patrick, Clapham Common)
Philip help me to deal with a history of binge eating, bulimia and depression. I was shown lots of brilliant ways to learn to heal myself. Previous counseling and slimming clubs never got to the root of my unhappiness. Philip has a natural gift to support and empower his clients. Through the use of CBT and hypnotherapy I am no longer in darkness and Philip’s compassionate belief in my recovery has brought light and sunshine in to my life. (Jo, Stratford)
Philip helped me come to terms with the end of a long term (14 yr) relationship. Through therapy he helped me through all the phases of loss, anger, guilt, jealousy and acceptance. His approach is always supportive, kind and patient. He is a great teacher and listens to your fears, worries and doubts; and in doing so, he moves you forward with constructive and supportive suggestions. I would not be where I am now, without his help and guidance. Philip made me aware of the wonderful qualities I still have, both as a single man and as a future partner. With Philip’s help, I was able to move forward with my life, to a happier and more fulfilling place. I would highly recommend Philip for your therapy and recovery needs.
(James, Denver USA)
I first booked an appointment with Phil to undergo hypnosis for what I believed
was work related anxiety. However, after a friendly yet thorough consultation
Phil suggested a combination approach of CBT, hypnosis and mindfulness.
The impact this has had on my life has been incredible. Not only can I comfortably talk and receive expert guidance, both in session and over the phone catch ups,
Phil has provided me with my own personal toolkit to help manage any rocky moments myself. His relaxed and open approach provides an uplifting and safe environment that allows everybody to benefit from. It also helps to receive encouraging and educated advice which has helped me switch up my career
and home life to a far happier and more balanced way of living. I would highly recommend making the call and having a chat!

Feedback from members is consistently that Philip provides sessions that feel useful, always with lots of things for our members to think about and try. For members struggling with anxiety or feeling trapped by chronic pain, Philip’s sessions have been described as the ‘the first time I could get a feeling that there is something I can do’.
