A Few More Words…
I was recommended to Howard by a friend who had recently seen him to overcome her own phobias. After an initial free telephone consultation I could sense Howard had a different approach to others people I had previously seen. He kindly fitted me in quickly as I had an upcoming holiday which was making my anxiety extremely bad. After my first session, I managed to go on holiday and definitely felt much calmer than I had in the previous 6 months. A few weeks later I had a second session and discovered a number of new ways to deal with the anxiety and phobias that have been taking over my life for so long and most importantly a new way of looking at it all.
I’m positive that these new methods will see me deal with my anxiety in a much more manageable way. Thank you Howard.
I first suffered from a bout of viral labyrintitus in 2008. I was, during that period, sometimes unable to walk without clinging on to lamp posts and walls. That condition came and went for many years until, in September 2018 I went seriously “wonky” again. I have an office on the 16th floor with floor to ceiling windows and after 5 months of no issues, suddenly I was unable to sit at my desk, would resort to sitting on the floor, and had the absolute certainty that I would be falling out of the glass wall, despite, mentally knowing that this couldn’t happen. In addition to this sudden re-appearance of vertigo, I had a work-trip to the US looming which I had to attend.
My first steps were maybe what most people would take – firstly, I booked myself onto a Fear of Flying Course, a full day in Heathrow, including a flight, I then saw a vestibular specialist, who referred me to another “more senior” specialist, who eventually prescribed medication.
The medication was prescribed a week before my flight to the US and I was in tears of desperation at that appointment, knowing the medication would take 6 weeks to kick in and I had a flight in 5 days.
I then found Howard.
Two sessions later, so within a total of 3 hours, I found tools that meant I could get on the flight, be calm, know for absolute certain that I could deal with that flight and the apprehension prior to it, and that’s exactly what happened.
I flew home on an early Monday morning, returned to my office on Tuesday, and am sat by my window, happily looking onto the London landscape, without a wobble, a sweat or a fear in my head. I am not taking any medication.
I was 100% skeptical about “hypnotism”. I am a solicitor, I don’t go for gimmicks and I always think a “qualified doctor” is best. I do not believe in miracle cures.
However, I would encourage anyone to make an appointment with Howard, whether that is for a fear of flying, heights, spiders, or any other issue.
I genuinely feel liberated and powerful to be able to cope with my vestibular condition, vertigo, and absolute fear of flying exacerbated by a medical condition, and incredibly grateful to have found him.

I thought you might be interested in my progress. I have just returned from three weeks cycling in France during which, my wife and I, visited the original place where my fear of heights/ sheer edges first manifested itself.
The place is the Cirque de Navacelles, an amazing huge hole in the ground caused by erosion, with very sheer sides – it is entered and left by roads that descend steeply clinging to the sheer edges. I am attaching a photo showing the road used on the way in from the rim, taken from our road out on the opposite side.
We first visited in 1995 when I cycled down rather slowly on the left side of the road, as close to the cliff face as possible, absolutely terrified, while my wife cycled ahead of me on the (correct) right hand side of the road in case traffic came. This time I descended reasonably normally on the right side of the road next to the edge without difficulty. I won’t pretend I was unaware of the drop but I was comfortable with it which is quite something!
Thanks very much for your help in achieving this – it hasn’t been seriously tested since I came to see you 2 years ago!
I’m writing this from San Francisco. Thank you so much for your help. The flight was amazing and I can’t quite believe that it was so good. I can’t wait to go to travel the world! Thank you again.
My life is changing for the better every day and the strategies you helped me to put in place are working.
I would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone wanting help to overcome their issues.
I knew how to lose weight, and I understood about eating healthy, but I just couldn’t stop myself eating chocolate! After 1 session with Howard I just didn’t fancy chocolate anymore. That was 6 months ago and not only am I still not eating chocolate, I’m now 28 pounds lighter! Thanks again!
