Testimonials from support group attendees

“You only needed to say a few lines about your own experience and others would immediately understand your predicament – through own insight. “

“You could really tell everyone was getting a lot out of it and it was very re-assuring meeting and talking to other men going through the same issues “

“You kept the mood light and gave everyone enough breathing space to discuss things, yet at the same time provided enough structure to the session to keep it productive and equally give everyone a chance to interact.”

“Being able to talk about your own symptoms, feelings and difficulties with fellow sufferers knowing they get it was rewarding in itself.”

“The openness of those that attended was warming.”

Please find below a sample of some of my patient testimonials from over the years. I have not included them ALL here. Instead I have picked a handful of those that demonstrate a wide range of my skill sets, outcomes and patient opinions. I would therefore hope that you are able to gauge how I approach my methods of treatment. If you have any questions regarding any of these comments below or would like to know more about my treatment please contact me here

My aim is to take every individual patient I see and treat them as individuals. If I am not achieving this then I believe I am letting down that patient. It is therefore imperative that my approach is bespoke and tailored. Failure to do so is likely to result in an unsuccessful outcome.

From those testimonials listed below I hope to give you a flavour of what you can expect if you come and see me as a patient.
