I slept through the night for the first time EVER

I’ve had insomnia for as long as I can remember. After 3 sessions I’m sleeping much better and this week I slept through the night for the first time ever. It was amazing!

I overcame a toxic relationship
I had 5 sessions with Matt Cullen, and he was fantastic! I would highly recommend him. He is passionate and dedicated and knows his stuff. I helped overcome a toxic relationship and move forward in my life with stronger boundaries and goals.

Your hypnotherapy has changed something in Christopher

I just wanted to thank you for all you’ve done for Christopher and ourselves.  You are a true dedicated professional and absolutely brilliant at your craft. Christopher on day 3 of his new school, has walked in on his own, happy with progress made.  Previous experience Christopher would not have gone into school. Your hypnotherapy has changed something in Christopher.  He had a further counselling session with his other therapist, Pre-booked. She also said he is a different boy!

There is always a solution

Matt is the most professional, genuine and caring therapist. Matt’s knowledge and understanding has shown me that there are things we can do to help retrain and change the negative thought patterns which can take over everyday life – That there is always a solution. Thank you Matt.

The dark cloud has lifted
I discovered Unchain Your Mind online, at a time when I was struggling with anxiety.  I didn’t realise that I had anxiety or that was what it was called until I would speak to friends and family members about my thought process, the things that would play on my mind and how I would overthink about nearly every events or scenarios.  I remember a friend of mine actually saying to me “it must be exhausting being you” and for the first time, it summed up how I was feeling.  I realised that it had got out of control.
I was worrying about some much trivia that it was starting to get in the way of just enjoying life and was starting to get me down.  I went to see Matt initially for a consultation to see whether hypnosis therapy could help me and it appeared that I would be susceptible to it.  I found Matt to be professional and very patient.  I had 4 sessions with Matt where he helped me to look at things in a different way and to almost move them from their current position in my mind to somewhere else – not necessarily at the forefront.
By talking and practicing different techniques things became a lot clearer.  I began to feel a sense of freedom and genuine joy which I initially feared would be short-lived.  I’m pleased to say has not been the case.  I am now free to just get on with living my life, enjoying social events and spending time with friends and family without being over analytical over everything.  My confidence has grown and I find I have more time to explore different avenues without that constant voice of doubt and fear.  The dark cloud has lifted.
I am so grateful to have found Unchain Your Mind.  Thanks, Matt you for all you have done for me and for helping me to get my life back on track!
The best money I ever spent!

I wasn’t sleeping well at night because I had terrible sweats. I went to hospitals, doctors blood tests but I was getting nowhere but then I read up on the internet about hypnosis and decided to give it a go. I feel 100% better now, I’m getting better sleep and the sweats are nowhere near as bad as they were. I feel wonderful now, it was the best money I ever spent.

A true miracle worker

After having tried all sorts of remedies without any success we saw Matt who helped our son with his anxiety and biting the skin on his fingertips. We were nervous as we weren’t sure the treatment would work but Matt was so patient and preserved. After a few sessions, our son was feeling a lot more confident and stopped biting the skin. Matt made him feel comfortable with hypnotherapy and we are so grateful to him. A true miracle worker.

I had come to breaking point

What lead me to hypnotherapy was the fact I have tried many other forms of therapy with little to no improvement in my problems. Suffering with anxiety and depression for many years, I had come to breaking point and decided to give this type of therapy a chance, though I was very apprehensive. Matt reassured me and made me feel completely at ease within each session. Though at first I was sceptical, I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions in my life. My anxiety levels have lowered, if not at times completely gone and my depression has eased. Those things that held me back in life, have lost hold over me, I feel like a new person and my outlook is very different to before therapy. Thank you, Matt, for your time and patience and your amazing ability to help change my mindset. I feel these sessions were a good investment for both my mental health and wellbeing and I do encourage others to give it a chance.

I had a social phobia

I used to feel like I didn’t fit in like I didn’t belong to social groups. I felt fear, disappointment and rejection. I felt I was rejected by most people. The treatment helped me improve the way I cope with situations, I discovered exactly how to feel secure. Now I can live without so much fear.

I feel more grounded, focused on my feelings and what I want to do with my life.

I have suffered from depression for over 40 years now. And there has been a lot of repressed anger, sadness, frustration- this list could go on forever. My treatment dealt, in an almost unbelievably gentle way, with the issues of anger and sadness at the root of many of my problems.

It is shocking how things that happened so long ago can still affect one’s life and make happiness difficult… so I was a bit skeptical about how easy it seemed to be. But, when I felt much better after a week and had no sign of relapsing I was happily surprised.

We are all carrying old hurts around. I am blessed I have been able to get help to deal with them. I feel more grounded, focused on my feelings and what I want to do with my life. One step at a time.

I want to say thank you to my therapist, Matt – a lovely person who made feel safe and understood.

Virginio Lima
Erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation treatment

I found the that after my sessions I was much more confident within myself. I had a way now to move forward. Not only through the hypnosis, but also advice from Matt was very valuable to me. I would definitely recommend going to see him and see what a difference it makes in your life.

I had recently been admitted to hospital with anaphylaxis after eating a small amount of peanut

Matt worked with me on a peanut allergy I had since I was a young child. I was reluctant to approach such a violent allergic reaction with the Havening Techniques® as I had recently been admitted to hospital with anaphylaxis after eating a small amount of peanut cooked into a dish.

Even though I wasn’t an easy client, he maintained a professional approach and since our session, I have had another accidental peanut encounter, with no reaction at all.

I would not hesitate to recommend his techniques, and know he is a knowledgeable practitioner with some impressive skills. I would definitely look for someone with his professional and caring attitude.

Matt was constantly helping me via telephone and WhatsApp which made me feel he was always there to support you

Never did I know how hypnotherapy works. I went on a search on Google and read all about it and thought this is it; let me give it a go. I booked a telephone consultation with Matt & I must say I received a call next day on the exact time of my consultation. He was very helpful and booked my first consultation pretty much straight away. I was so nervous at my first session but knowing how it will work and the feelings I will leave with after the session was just amazing. Matt explained and told me what was right for me. He immediately put me at ease and we started booking my sessions. Some of the things I spoke about whilst in therapy were quite deep for me but I can hand on heart say it has helped me move forward. What made it even better and professional was that Matt was also constantly helping me via telephone & WhatsApp which made me feel he was always there to support you. I would definitely recommend Matt to all my friends and families at every opportunity and needs. I can’t thank you enough for the help you have provided. Wishing you all the best Matt

I don’t automatically go to a hundred bad thoughts

I decided to go to for treatment because I’d been suffering from anxiety for years. It had got to the point where I wasn’t eating or sleeping and in the last year, it had gotten really bad. I managed to get a lot off my chest at the sessions and learned to relax in a lot of situations where I wasn’t relaxing before. The sessions also helped me to set important boundaries in my life and make sure that people respect them. I feel a lot calmer in myself and I don’t automatically go to a hundred bad thoughts, I just work slowly through them. I can just shut it down now.

Carla B
Coping with grief

I had one session with Matt because I needed help coping with grief. I had been widowed for many years but still felt trapped in grief. Everyone was telling me that I needed to get on with my life but I was so absorbed in my grief that I was unable to move forward. Over the course of one session with Matt, he was able to show me that it was not grief that was causing my problem. I had long ago dealt with the grief of losing my husband. It was actually that I felt guilty that I was no longer grieving and so I was still acting out the grief. When Matt explained this to me it was as if a large weight had been removed from my shoulders and I am now able to go forward and build a new life for myself. Thank you Matt, you were amazing.

Freedom from phobia, fears and anxiety

I saw Matt on 4 separate occasions for anxiety management and to address a phobia of rats and mice. All treatments were highly effective and conducted in a professional manner and environment. I’m so grateful to be free of my phobia’s and to be able to live a more enjoyable life.

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

Natalie Robinson

I reached out to Matt’s services in a moment when I was having intensive panic attacks, lasting 5-6 hours. I’ve never had those before, thus I was unfamiliar what am I dealing with, was feeling scared, depressed and had this feeling of unsettledness, which didn’t allow me to relax my body and mind.

At that time I had only one session with Matt but the effect was immediate. The session helped me to analyse and identify how and where my body disrupts the breathing, which was extremely helpful. In my case, I realized that all the emotions and fear was held within the stomach area. After the session, the muscles around the stomach started to relax and I could clearly feel when getting intense and then when contracting back in relaxation. From there on I started paying attention and learning how to have control on it.

I would say Havening is an alternative method of healing that worked, at least for me it did.

Cigarettes have disappeared from my life

If you want to quit smoking get in touch with Unchain Your Mind. I’ve done it 3 months ago and since then cigarettes have disappeared from my life. Hypnosis really can help you free yourself and break the chain of nicotine.

Carmelo Amenta
I got rid of the panic

I used to feel panic in my chest whenever I thought about my son’s accident and I got panicky breathing. After one session I can’t feel it now – it’s gone. I didn’t think I would be saying that.

Got my life back on track

I used to have a drinking problem but working with Matt I realised that I was only running from myself and that I was causing all of the problems in my life that I was drinking to forget. Now I’m much happier and in a stable relationship with an amazing woman and daughter, I hardly ever drink and it’s not a problem now.

Haven’t bitten my nails in months

I was very skeptical about hypnosis and didn’t think it would work for me because I had been biting my nails for over 30 years. But after just one session, I haven’t bitten them in over 3 months – I haven’t even been tempted. It’s such a great feeling to look down and see my nails getting healthier by the day – and not to feel like I have to hide them all the time.

A new sense of perspective

The treatment helped me to change my perceptions, beliefs, fears, obsession… and this gave me a new sense of perspective. I have found really useful the knowledge that I could actually change my perception of things. I am more empowered now, I have learned to change my emotional state.  Matt is a great listener, his knowledge shines through.

Laurent Gomes
I was hanging onto a lot of baggage in my life.

I learned a lot about myself – I learned how to deal with a lot of issues from my past: a lot of feelings, a lot of baggage that I was hanging onto in my life.

The release of emotion was instant

Going through Time F.R.A.M.E.™ is very very powerful. I was surprised by how rapidly it works – the release of emotion is instant. It takes a just few minutes.

James Cormack
I was surprised!

I was surprised by how I was able to talk to my unconscious – that surprised me! I wasn’t expecting my unconscious to answer me back.

Samantha Vitor
I stopped my anxiety

I can’t thank Matt enough for being so patient with me.  He has improved my lifestyle and showed me how to stop my anxiety
