His mentor and trainer Matthew Ferguson has worked with Olympic athletes, Doctors and Psychiatrists to name but a few professions and with over 25 years’ experience of Hypnosis and Clinical Hypnotherapy, he has shared a wealth of knowledge and expertise with Darren. Having himself lost over 6 stones in weight, he has a real passion for helping anyone wanting to lose weight and successfully maintain their target weight.
As well as having his Advanced Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy, he is also a Motivation Therapist and Coach.
It is clear to everyone that meets Darren, just how passionate he is about helping others either through his skills as a coach, mentor or Hypnotherapist, and he often uses a combination of all these skills to bring about positive lasting change for his clients. He gains a great deal of satisfaction through his business ventures and finds them extremely rewarding and fulfilling.
Born in Yorkshire, he has run a number of businesses both here in the UK and France, where he lived for a number of years, before settling here in York. He has an honest approach to life and shares the experience he has gained from both the successes and failures in his life, and this leaves him well placed to help those looking to experience greater highs and fewer lows.
He says “I genuinely care about people’s overall well-being and happiness, and Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy help me to achieve astounding results for my clients”.
He looks forward to meeting you, and to discovering how his skills as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Motivation Therapist (Dip.C.Hyp/NLP) can help you on your personal journey through life.

How Does Hypnosis Work?
During hypnosis, your body relaxes and your thoughts become more focused. Like other relaxation techniques, hypnosis lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and changes certain types of brain wave activity. In this relaxed state, you will feel at ease physically yet fully awake mentally, and you may be highly responsive to suggestion. Your conscious mind becomes less alert and your subconscious mind becomes more focused.
There are several stages of hypnosis:
- Reframing the problem
- Becoming relaxed, then absorbed (deeply engaged in the words or images presented by a hypnotherapist)
- Dissociating (letting go of critical thoughts)
- Responding (complying with a hypnotherapist’s suggestions)
- Returning to usual awareness
I spent and hour with Darren and after I felt relaxed and able to think positively about the problem I had gone to see him about. Darren made me feel relaxed and confident which allowed me to talk to him openly. His support has helped me massively and I recommend Darren as he is good at what he does and genuinely wants to help.
I visited Darren tonight – sceptical and a bit anxious about what to expect! I was instantly relaxed and felt he really listened to me – and I talked a lot!
I learned lots – about hypnotherapy and my misconceptions of it, and about me! A super taster session and I’m sure to go back now I’m aware of all the ‘uses’ of hypnotherapy! Thank you x
Darren is a truly genuine helpful guy. I have nothing but glowing reports about how Darren has helped people with their personal challenges. I have recommended Darren to family and friends and his results can be seen quickly.
