About Darren

Darren has a wealth of experience in using Clinical Hypnotherapy and Coaching to help individuals and businesses to achieve positive results in many different areas of their lives, be this personal, business, or indeed both. 

Prior to starting his Hypnotherapy practice, he trained and subsequently gained his professional qualifications with one of the UK’s leading trainers in Advanced Hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming. 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.

As well as having his Advanced Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy, he is also a Master Practitioner of Neuro-linguistic programming, a skilled eye movement therapist, and is qualified as an Advanced BLAST Technique practitioner®, along with also being a Motivation Therapist and Coach. 

He welcomes the opportunity to explain how Hypnotherapy works and it’s also important to know that he has many other therapeutic skills at his disposal.  

It is clear to everyone that meets Darren, just how passionate he is about helping others either through his skills as a Coach, Mentor, Hypnotherapist, along with his ability to resolve trauma through eye movement therapy, and he favours an approach, which often sees him using a combination of all these skills to bring about positive lasting change for his clients. He gains a great deal of satisfaction through sharing his skills and finds the work he does through York Hypnotherapy Clinic extremely rewarding and fulfilling. 

Since he qualified as a Hypnotherapist a number of eight years ago, he’s continued to study and has invested many thousands of hours in his training and along with this, he’s invested a great deal financially in his quest to become one of the UK’s leading Hypnotherapists.

His Advanced Hypnotherapy qualification is the equivalent of a degree (NQF6) and the thing that he feels is most relevant is not just the qualifications he holds, but more importantly, the experience he’s gained as his reputation and business has gone from strength to strength.

Prior to Covid-19, he was running three offices in York, where he would help a great many people each week. Since March 2020, he has had to adapt the way he operates his business and he’s started offering hypnotherapy online.

He now has one office in York at Clifton Moor, York Eco Business Centre, Amy Johnson Way, YO30 4AG as well as providing Hypnotherapy online throughout the UK, he is also working with clients further afield including USA, France, Spain and Dubai.



He looks forward to meeting you, and to discovering how his skills as an Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist, Advanced BLAST Technique practitioner®, Coach and Motivation Therapist (Dip.C.Hyp/NLP) can help you on your personal journey through life. 

Through his work as an Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist, he’s able to play a positive role in helping those that seek his help.

He’s available to help either in person at York Eco Business Centre, Amy Johnson Way, York, Y030 4AG. Alternatively, he’s available online hypnotherapy and he prefers to use Zoom for his work remotely.

So, if your looking for a skilled hypnotherapist, with a wealth of experience, you can either meet him in person, or he can provide hypnotherapy online wherever in the world you might be.

He says “online hypnotherapy” appears to be just as effective as delivering hypnotherapy in person and whilst initially I wasn’t sure about the efficacy  of delivering therapy remotely, I’ve been pleasantly surprised and the results speak for themselves.
