About David and Your Positive Change - Hypnosis and NLP

I'm David, I first got interested in Hypnosis and Self Development whilst in my later years at Education, this was through my interest in Radio.


I was fortunate enough to have a worked at Capital Radio in London, most of the time I Assisted Presenters, one for those presenters was Kenny Everett, he introduced me to a fellow presenter who had just started doing Hypnotic Stage Shows around the South.

The Presenter and I got on really well, and I was invited to one of the shows, over a period of time I went from watching to being part of the production team.


Exams were approaching, and I was shown various techniques how to remain calm/relaxed, and how to recall information quickly using Hypnosis, this helped me achieve results which many weren't expecting!!

Upon leaving School my interest in Hypnosis and Self Development continued, however I followed the path I had already mapped out.....Radio!!


Radio took me to various parts of the county the National Station Atlantic 252  - Ireland, Capital Fm - London, Heart Fm - West Midlands, The Pulse - West Yorkshire, Century Fm and Magic Radio - North East.

During my time in West Yorkshire around 17 years ago, I decided the time had come to study Hypnosis, Psychotherapy, and NLP at a academic level, this would also help me in radio when working with Celebrities helping them prior to performances, working with fellow presenters to be more confident on the radio etc.

Eventually, working with people using Hypnosis and NLP took over and the radio chapter needed close. Since then (16 years ago) I have helped 1000s of people to overcome Anxiety, Fears/Phobias, attachment to food, Alcohol, narcotics, Habits, Quit Smoking, Lose Weight      

The Key areas in which I specialise are; Smoking Cessation, Confidence/Public Speaking, Anxieties, unhealthy attachments, and Fears/Phobias. If you click the above menu you can find out more about these conditions, and the various issues most commonly treated.
