About the Session

This is not a good idea as the caffeine will be too much of a stimulant.

Your first session will normally be 1.5 to 2 hours and yes we will get some great work done as I insist you see feel a benefit straight away.

Sometimes we will need a breakthrough session normally for those that have travelled from overseas to see me or you just need to get the work done!

Please see Breakthrough Sessions below…

This session is designed for those who have travelled from other parts of the UK abroad or have a long way to travel and we aim to obtain the best outcomes as possible in the session (See link ‘Breakthrough sessions’  for an in-depth explanation )… This is a great way for me to get to know YOU and for YOU to learn all of the techniques in a short a time as possible… If time permits I may include your bespoke recording as part of the session.

This really depends on so many factors that could not just be covered here so why not just simply ring me and let us discover what we can do for you?

A big bag of smiles … an open mind…Some people like to bring a list of their issues and wants/needs it’s really up to you I find mind maps really help to keep issues in perspective or failing that old fashioned bullet points work well too!

Oh yes, I really like to meet friends, partners, family the more witnesses to great work the better…as long as they are not part of the issue…!

Or sometimes if they are then absolutely bring them… If you feel comfortable

Yes you can but you will have to sometimes wait for ¾ of an hour to ensure you are fully aware of your environment and grounded.

I often will call you the very next day, I like to use WhatsApp, FaceTime or sometimes good old fashioned Skype. I really do take great pride in keeping in ‘touch’ with my clients and some have been friends/clients for many years.

This really does depend on what we need to get through but one thing you can be assured of is that I really only see you for as many sessions as you need…too many therapists ‘string clients along’ and make them too dependant on them…that just is not ethical at all.

Yes I no longer have ‘assistants’ as too many clients wanted to ensure they saw me only.

I now work 5 days a week and I am fairly booked in advance. However for emergencies I will always be there when I can as many of my past and present clients will testify.

I try to get a good life balance but in emergencies I will work on a Saturday or Sunday.

Now that’s cool as long as you respect the fact that I have a lovely wife, son and friends who I need to catch up with and that you don’t abuse the boundaries that we establish together. Sometimes I will have to charge for that call and I will always ensure that during the call you will be made aware of that fact.

We will establish how long between sessions at the first meeting and during subsequent sessions should that be necessary.

Smoking

Oh yes and that is all you will need. Sometimes there are ‘other elements ‘ involved so we may need two sessions.

I learnt the one-stop smoking session from a very good friend of mine Gil Boyne who sadly passed away. I also sometimes hold master classes on the subject to teach other therapists an ethical and very effective method of screening and helping people quit the evil weed…I have to say that I really enjoy helping people to have the freedom and health choice to away from the smoking habit.

Currently, your investment is £425.

This has become a regular request and I have adapted my ‘System” to accommodate people to escape the e-cigarettes with great success.

I will help you to choose not to…simple.

Away from the Office On-Line Support

I do in some circumstances and have offsite with a specialist gym/football/Rugby clubs. Also I have a number of arrangements with corporates in Canary wharf but I do often charge travel/time for the service…maybe a skype or WhatsApp/phone session will benefit you?

Yes, I offer this very popular service to my clients from all over the globe, generally, I would have met them in person, however more and more overseas clients are referring their friends and colleagues.

Oh yes, this is a very popular method of communicating.

Yes, frequently I conduct sessions over the telephone. I do ask that clients use headphones when conducting such sessions though… It just adds that closeness and nuance required for great rapport and results.

Collaborative Working

Call me let’s see if we are compatible, I have been a referral service for some years now however I am always intrigued to meet new groups of people.

Why not..? However, simply call me to ensure that your medication is not contra to your ongoing treatment…generally, I do like to work collaboratively with other consultants/Dr’s.

Absolutely simply ask them to call/email me I work a lot with other consultants and Dr’s from The Priory and other areas of the medical fraternity.

Effectiveness - Does it Work? - Money-Back Guarantee

Simply call me and I will very soon establish whether we can work together.

Absolutely not… If on meeting you I decide we will work together then you will get a result…my integrity is such that if I can’t help you I will gently ask you to leave without paying me, often referring you to the most appropriate person to help you such is my network there will be someone we can find that will get you the results you deserve.

Experience… intuition… I really do turn people away, if I cannot help them. I like a challenge and am often the person that breaks through and gets the result that the client is looking for…If you have the resources and will take responsibility then we will get you your desired outcome.

After 20 + years of practising and refining my craft,  I would not get the referrals if it didn’t,  but it’s not for everyone and I will know very quickly if you are one of those that I cannot help.

Clinic Office - Environment

Yes, there are two toilets on my floor and there is a toilet in reception please ask my very friendly receptionist for directions.

Yes please don’t wait in the rain or cold or hot (when we get some sun in the UK!). I also have a reception on my floor…by the way my wife Sheila supplies the plants and floral decorations.

Location

My clinic is based at 1 Harley Street, London, W1G 9QE and after hours at 7 Harley Street, London, W1G 9QE (buzzer 12 ).

Oxford Circus or Bond Street.

Yes, right near the rear entrance to the John Lewis store.

The south end junction with Wigmore Street near to John Lewis.

Payment

Please contact me for an updated fee rate.

Cancellation Fees Policy

I have to levy a fee in an event of a cancellation, fortunately it’s not something that occurs very often such is the relationship that I have with my clients. It’s only fair however that I point out that a full fee will be required in the event that a session is cancelled without 48 hours notice.

Yes, I take all major cards (Sadly not AMEX ) and you can also pay online (BACS) or by PayPal in advance.

You pay at the time of the session and sometimes in advance for Breakthrough sessions.

Ooooh now that’s cheeky, sometimes for friends family and some referrals.
