What clients are saying

Thank you for being so incredibly patient, so understanding, so trustworthy, so helpful and so genuinely caring... I now have self-worth, confidence and am enjoying life. I can’t wait to see what the next chapter of my life will bring!

From the very first time I spoke with Matt he was supportive and compassionate and not at all judgemental. Matt helped me look at my life as a whole. How had events from my past contributed to my current situation. What were the reasons behind my actions? What options were available for me to move forward? Why was I so unhappy? Hypnotherapy allowed the way I thought and the way I felt to become more aligned. The issues that we addressed in hypnotherapy included anxiety reduction, letting go of past trauma and hurt, roles and responsibilities, trust, self esteem, self worth and confidence... What I like about hypnotherapy apart from the sense of immense calm and relation it brings is that I didn’t consciously have to do anything... I was aware of the changes in my behaviour but I didn’t have to remember what to do, it just happened. I was very surprised by how quickly the changes started to happen as well... I would recommend Matt’s service to anyone... I quite often do. If you want to be happy and are motivated to change, hypnotherapy is very effective in assisting to do so.

My life has changed completely since I first came to see Matt. I was unhappy, stressed, very overweight and extremely unfit. Matt helped me focus on what was important to me; he gave me clarity and direction. My friends now tell me how well I look. I have lost 20 kgs and recently cycled 500 kms around Laos; a feat I would never have considered a year ago... I am more confident and much more fun to be around. Hypnotherapy was the most relaxing and liberating experience I’ve ever had, and I can recommend it to anyone. Thank you so much Matt.

I would like to thank Matt for believing in me and helping me overcome a lot of issues. Since seeing Matt I have a much better approach to life and now enjoy each day. I was quite cautious about going to a hypnotherapist but I can assure you that it is very effective. You don’t fall asleep but Matt basically makes some suggestions and these are embedded in your subconscious. Matt sifted through a lot of stuff in my life and pointed out that a lot of my depression and anxiety was due to factors I had never paid too much attention to. Matt is an excellent counsellor and is very sincere and caring. His professionalism as a counsellor and hypnotherapist is superior. I truly am grateful to have found Matt who is very kind, gentle and is a great listener. I didn’t go straight away into hypnotherapy because of all other issues causing anxiety needed to be addressed first. Once we both new that I was heading in the right direction, he conducted hypnotherapy which is very relaxing, almost like a massage but you close your eyes and relax each muscle and Matt will make suggestions which stay in your subconscious. One of my problems was comfort eating and I can now say that when I reach for a packet of chips I consider the consequences (this is embedded in my subconscious) and now I immediately look for the healthy choice and enjoy food much more than just shoving rubbish down my throat. Matt you are a very special person and I would encourage anyone who is suffering from nerves, anxiety and just finding life difficult, don’t hesitate to contact Matt, you will not regret it. I promise you.

I went to Matt thinking I didn’t really need his help that I could deal with my problems on my own... It was only once I started opening up did I realise that I was affected by my problems more than I realised. I found Matt really easy to open up to and he was a great listener. I find it hard to open up to people but I felt comfortable with Matt immediately. So at the first visit it was decided that I would be hypnotised by Matt to help me deal with my issues... No one was more surprised than me when Matt successfully hypnotised me, I actually really got to look forward to our sessions because it was so relaxing. The end result was Matt successfully helped me to deal with problems and issues I had, which are now resolved. Which is wonderful, I am a much more relaxed easy going person now than I was before I went to see Matt... If you are in doubt, don’t take the chance, go and see Matt for yourself. I have no doubt that he will be able to help you deal with whatever problems you may be facing.

I would sincerely like to thank you for your services in counselling and hypnotherapy. After years of trying unsuccessfully to take control of my life and rid myself of procrastination, I can now feel good about myself since having my sessions with you. For over a decade, I have missed out on countless opportunities and deadlines which have affected myself and sometimes those around me. You helped me discover the source of my behaviour and not only helped me stop procrastinating, but you helped me realise that my low self-esteem was a huge factor in my behaviour. Through your gentle and relaxing sessions, I have regained a new self-worth and way of life and I now successfully manage a busy work and family life. Your complete professionalism and ability to make me feel safe and at ease is greatly appreciated. I will highly recommend you to anyone I know who could benefit from your services.

I’d love to let people know how grateful I am to Matthew Duff. Matt has helped me turn my life around. I now have the self confidence and self esteem I feel I deserve. I no longer blame myself for every little thing that goes wrong and finally realise that its actually not my responsibility to make all things happen and to make everybody else happy. My family and friends have all noticed what a difference it has made to me by having some counselling and hypnotherapy with Matt. I have found I now don’t let things get to me like I used to and my whole attitude has changed. I have enjoyed my sessions with Matt and will miss them, but I’m also glad they’re over because I know that means I’m ready to face anything and I feel really good about it... Hypnotherapy is amazing. It can be relaxing and also make things so much clearer. My whole experience has been very rewarding and has made me a much happier person.

Matt worked wonders in releasing past and present angers in relation to issues that were holding me back and consuming my life. He then went on and enabled me to quit smoking. I now feel happier, healthier and more content than I have in six years. It has helped me and my husband become part of a better working relationship. I would recommend Matt and hypnotherapy to anyone to help deal with any issue to enable your life to be more fulfilling and harmonious.

Matthew Duff.....What can I say.
In a very safe & comfortable environment, Matt through his Hypnotherapy helped me to believe in who I am & always will be.
After the first session & each week following I was unaware of any changes in my attitude/response/feeling until Matt asked “how has your week been ?”. When I thought about it to answer him I had been subconsciously different in many ways without me even trying.
I feel happy, comfortable & confident (something I always appeared to be to others) but I can honestly say I feel that on the inside now as well.
I would not hesitate in recommending Matthew’s services to anyone.
Matt said in my last session that you should be very proud of yourself. When I asked why he said “ because you did it all by yourself”.
Thank You

     "As a person who suffered anxiety and panic attacks all my adult life I told Matthew during my first consultation that I've never trusted a therapist and that there was no way he'd be able to hypnotise me. Well due to Matthews genuine compassion, patience and counselling technique I can say my anxiety has dramatically decreased and I haven't experienced a panic attack since seeing him. Hypnotherapy was the most relaxing and life changing thing I have experienced! Thank you Matthew!

At the time I contacted Matthew I was in need of some help with some personal problems. I had tried in vain to overcome my difficulties on my own and was desperate for some professional help... I must say that I could not have had any idea of the benefit I have received as a result of the work that we did together. Right from the start he was upfront about the process and I achieved great benefit from the beginning to the end of the sessions. I have great respect and admiration for the way Matthew works and would be keen to recommend him to anyone needing professional help.
My husband committed suicide 2 1/2 years ago. I have been to counsellors but couldn’t come to terms with his death. I was referred to Matthew. I was very sceptical about seeing a hypnotherapist but Matthew put me at ease straight away. He explained everything that was going to happen and that I was in control the whole time. Now after 4 visits I finally have inner peace which I have found astounding. Since then I have been diagnosed with breast cancer and I believe my sessions with Matthew have helped me come to terms with this setback as well. I’m now a very firm believer in hypnotherapists especially Matthew who has been no end of help when things looked so bad.
