Well... I AM AMAZED and SO GRATEFUL THANK YOU for saving our lives. I will not lose my mother as soon as when she smoked and couldn't breath. I didn't want to quit, but it worked so well that I am truely a non-smoker just like before I ever started. I am grateful and am spreading the word to all that will listen.
Anne Wood (Windermere) Stop Smoking Hypnosis
I went to see David after being recommended by a friend who had a similar problem. I had been riding for about 30 years and had riding qualifications up to British horse society intermediate instructor, I had taught many people how to ride and had competed at a decent level. Several years ago I just stopped jumping, no idea why just was terrified at thought of jumping and I had been round xc courses and jumped at affiliated level. I had come to the point where riding was not any fun and going to shows was filling me with dread including stomach upsets and finding any excuse not to go. It got to a point where I just did flat competitions dressage and showing. I decided to give David a go and am absolutely chuffed. After the first session I went home put out some jumps and just did it, after second and third just kept jumping. I have jumped in the arena and field and not bothered about doing it. I have not had chance to compete at a jumping show just yet due to cancellations but i can't wait to get in the ring and show people that I am back. I no longer worry that how can I teach a child to jump if I won't do it myself. I would strongly recommend David to anyone with a phobia or fear also he has worked miracles with dieting. Lost a stone in 4 weeks without actually doing anything. I now feel fitter and able to ride the horse much easier.

David I wanted to write you to say how happy I am with my life in past weeks. After my wife left me last year I was very afraid to go into the dating scene because I did not believe in myself. I thought that it would be end of the line for me and relationship but since I came to your helpful sessions I know I am feeling stronger and ready to live again and maybe one day find myself a good woman. David I thank you for your help. Kindest regards and salutations Ali

Lindsay (Barrow) Gastric Band Hypnosis
Hi David. When I came to see you about my fear of needles I was about to undergo some surgery and the thought of facing the injection was making me feel really sick and scared. I had tried everything and you were really my last hope. After my GP recommended you I thought I may as well give it a go. So glad I did. After one session you have completely changed my mind about needles. I couldn't even look at one before let alone let it near me. Now I feel I can hold one and the operation doesnt fill me with dread. Thanks so much for your help. K x

Cassie (Whitehaven, Cumbria)
During my recent skiing holiday, I found I was relaxed about using a 'chair lift'. When I was confronted by steep slopes to ski down there were fewer signs of panic unlike my last visit.
Barry Rabone (Cumbria)
I'm 2 stone down from when we first spoke and it has really made me feel good when people this week have commented on it. I have told people about you and said they should give you a try, I'm glad I did because I feel it has been very positive! May have to try and get you to help me give up my Landrover's, Maybe I'm not ready for that!
Nick Freeman (Barrow) Gastric Band Hypnosis
After a couple of tough years, unknowingly I had used chocolate as a crutch which had led me to put alot of weight on, this in turn affected how I felt about myself, I simply couldn't deal with anything. Now in just a few short weeks and after just 2 sessions I have lost almost a stone in weight and my whole outlook on things has changed. I find myself dealing with things that before I would have just crumbled at! Everyone has commented on the change in me. Thank you
Toni Hill (Ulverston) Gastric Band Hypnosis
My name is Michelle. I have been battling with my weight my entire life. I did Weight Watchers, a nutritionist, diet pills, No Carb, Low Carb, and every other gimmick under the sun. I was on the weight loss roller coaster and just ended up always feeling down about myself. I couldn't keep the weight off, I got nauseous from eating bacon cheeseburgers without the bun everyday, and I was always hungry. About a month ago I came across your youtube video. I was desperate and decided to follow up. I am very proud to say that since seeing you I have lost about 25 pounds and I feel wonderful. I am a size 8 for the first time in my life. I choose my outfits based on what looks good, not on what fits. I know this may sound cheesy but I feel better about myself and my parents and friends have all noticed the change. My mum actually asked me today if I'm eating because she was worried. I told her I eat 3 meals a day, I just don't snack so much anymore. I eat until I'm comfortably full, not until the bag is empty or the plate is spotless. I walk for 40 minutes three times a week and do sit ups twice a week. (She took me out to lunch just to make sure that I eat! At least I got a free meal out of it :) I just wanted to write and thank you for what you have given me. I feel beautiful and I can't wait for the summertime! Thanks Dave

Louise MacDonald - Hi David, year and a half later after seeing you husband is now just over 8 stone lighter. Doing triathlons now, and loving life. Thank you for helping him make the change.

Louise MacDonald (Windermere) Gastric Band Hypnosis
Dear Dave. A month ago I saw your ad about weight loss and decided to give it a go. I wasn't sure what I was letting myself in for but I had read about other peoples success in a magazine. After my first session I felt really amazing. For the first time my mind wan't constantly thinking about snacking and I didn't need to stop myself from eating food. I lost 5 pounds that week, normally I would have lost 3 max. Following the next two sessions I have now lost a total of 11 pounds in just over 3 weeks and I know I can lose more. I just wanted to write to you and let you know how pleased I am. Hope you are ok :)
Debbie P (Ulverston)
I had tried everything possible with the fear of flying I had from drugs, alcohol and a mixture of both. Nothing worked and I'd almost given up when someone asked had I tried hypnosis. At this point I searched online and found the Cumbria hypnosis clinic and the next is history, looking forward to my summer holiday this august ...all I can say is try it before your fear takes hold of your life
Teresa (Barrow, Cumbria)
My life was in a downward spiral because of gambling and I had tried everything from quitting cold turkey to Gamcare and even counselling. This has been the only thing which has changed my attitude. I really don't understand how it has worked but the results have been amazing and I finally have my life back on track
Josh (Penrith, Cumbria)
My sister, Donna from Kendal enrolled in one of your sessions in August and hasn't had a cigarette since - a remarkable achievement. Thank you David Faratian
Jane Speirs (Carlisle) Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy Workshop
From being a complete sceptic about hypnotherapy I was amazed by what happened to me in the session I had with David. Prior to my session I was extremely anxious about flying and dreaded any holiday that involved a plane trip. This was so extreme that I did not know whether or not I could get in the plane to go on holiday and my wife and I always packed separately so that I could back out if necessary. I never experienced the pleasure of anticipating a holiday because of my overiding fear of flying. After one session with David and a period of 2 weeks listening to the cd I was able to anticipate my holiday and be perfectly relaxed in the build up to it. In spite of a delay of 4 1/2 hours in the airport and a further 1 1/2 hours sitting in the plane on the tarmac while all the lost luggage was found I was able to remain calm and relaxed throughout. This has changed my outlook to holidays and was the best money ever spent.
Bob (Cumbria) Fear of Flying Hypnotherapy
Listening to the CD was brilliantly relaxing and kept me confident throughout my GCSE exams. Would definitely recommend it." Thanks again for all your help. :)
Rebecca (GCSE Student) Accelerated Learning Hypnotherapy
A friend recommended Dave to me as I was experiencing panic attacks and stressing myself out about travelling, even though I have travelled many times before. I was unsure of what to expect from hypnosis but I soon realised that its not just about being put to sleep and told what to do, its about changing the way you think to overcome situations in your life. I only needed to visit Dave 3 times. I came away with a completely different view of life and learnt how much power your mind has. Dave has allowed me to open up new avenues and move forward. I can highly recommend Dave, if you are wondering if hypnosis can help you, then just call him. I cant sing Daves praises enough, he truly believes in what he does, as do I.
Louise P (Cumbria) Fear of travelling Hypnotherapy
Hi David, sorry I didn't send you an update sooner but i'm sure you know I'm not the most organised of people! The flight was a massive success! the whole family was completely stunned at how I handled it. I wasn't completely relaxed but I was able to control my anxiety and keep myself focused with your methods. We even encountered some rough turbulence (which usually I would have freaked out at) and I didn't shed a tear. We had a fabulous holiday and it was such a novelty to relax without having to dread the journey home. So thank you David, I'm an absolute believer and I recommend you to everyone! I've booked to go to Florida for five weeks In august so I'll be coming to see you before then for a refresh! Thankyou again Jess

Alison Williams (Windermere) Gastric Band Hypnosis
2 months ago I came to see David about my negative outlook on life. I was slowly ruining my relationship and felt helpless. Through my work with David I now feel in control and I have completely switched my view of the world. I feel brighter and more optimistic than ever before. Two words life changing!
