Jonathans Testimonials 

Letters Close Up

For years my mind has been in a state of confusion - fulfilling an honourable spousal responsibility whilst battling with ever increasing levels of personal guilt, frustration and unhappiness. In the beginning I was able to ignore these “selfish” negatives simply believing that these were the cards I had been dealt and that nothing could change.

 

However, with time (circa 15 years) the anguish and resentment became more prevalent in my everyday life. My mind was tired and confused, I felt lost and trapped and no matter how hard I searched for a solution I simply couldn’t find any answers. A good friend saw the change in my character and urged me to contact Jonathan.

 

I remember the day I finally called to explain what was wrong and my need for help. I battled to contain my emotions but being truthful to a reassuring voice was the perfect start in dealing with the distress that had plagued me for so long. Each session I’ve had with Jonathan has been amazingly beneficial - he showed empathy, was not judgmental and got me to admit, accept and deal with my feelings/emotions.

 

He helped me find solitude, alleviated the guilt and restored calm to my heart and mind. I have been able to identify how I want to feel and how I need to get there for the benefit on me and my family. In doing so the anguish and confusion has dissipated and a solution has come out of the depths of despair.

 

I have now found a path that I didn’t think was possible to walk on. As a 40 something male in this day and age its extremely difficult to face up to the emotional distress and heartache we often face. Jonathan’s help has left me stronger and more confident. Things can only get better from here. Thanks Jonathan - I will be forever grateful

Guilt Frustration & Unhappiness

Before I started working with Jonathan I was extremely depressed. I wasn’t able to eat properly or even leave my bed. I had found myself getting closer and closer to being suicidal that I realized enough was enough. My boyfriend, who had already worked with Jonathan on his issues, recommended I have one session, just to try it out as my situation became very worrying to myself and him. I was sceptical for a long time before I decided I would give Jonathan a chance.
 

When my boyfriend and his mum told me about Jonathan and how he had helped them, I was worried I would be untreatable, I felt I had too much going on in my head that the thought of it all turning off scared me as it had been all I had ever known. I kept putting off seeing Jonathan because I believed I didn’t have a choice and that my depression had control of me
 

It got to the point where my family and friends noticed that I wasn’t myself for weeks, I had quit my job and became very hostile and numb. I woke up one day and just knew I couldn’t bear it anymore, my body and mind were exhausted and I felt I had no way out, I just wanted to turn it all off for good. That’s when my boyfriend decided he had to book a session for me. I realized myself that I had to try at least, that’s when I got the courage to just go. 
 

After about 3 or 4 sessions I began living my life again. I would wake up and feel free, energetic, and happy even. I managed to start working again, I found myself enjoying things more, I felt more like myself with every session. The depression didn’t have control over me anymore as Jonathan had taught me a way to control it myself. We worked on a lot of deep-rooted traumas that I had never even known were triggering my depression all along.

 

I feel so much happier; I find enjoyment in everything I used to love. I have begun to notice how I handle situations better now and how I can still use what Jonathan taught me to control my depression whenever I am triggered again. I still have a long way to go but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now which is something I had convinced myself I would never see

Depression

I cannot adequately express how effective Jonathan’s system is. My depression has gone, anxiety is gone, kidney pains gone, knee, wrist, and hand pains gone, neck pain is gone, I feel genuinely happy, and can even eat wheat again! Even my phobia of bellybuttons went during my course of treatment. Stomach bloating which I thought I was lumbered with for life, and blamed on scar tissue from several operations actually went OVERNIGHT.

 

I went to Jonathan with a few aches and pains that I thought were just normal for my age, and previous medical history, totally disregarded chronic problems – such as the digestion – as not “real pain”, and certainly didn’t even entertain resolving quirks such as my bellybutton phobia. His treatment has surprised me on every level, especially with the way “other stuff’ resolved itself as treatment progressed. 

 

Jonathan has a very interesting method that has AMAZING results. I have seen a variety of therapists over the years (NLP, EFT, CBT, Physiotherapy, Hypnotherapy) and while they have all helped me on my journey, none have achieved long-lasting and what I feel to be such deep-seated resolution. You may think you are going to see him to resolve your pain, but what he achieves will actually benefit other areas of your life in ways you’d probably not thought possible.

 

Thanks, Jonathan! I am very happy to have found you!

I was looking for a way to manage my feelings of being fed up with anxiety in specific situations

 

My only concern working with Jonathan was totally price based. It’s a lot of money to invest in someone I don’t know just on a recommendation.

 

However, as someone who is working towards being self-employed, I understand keenly the real value in trusting in professionals to be able to help facilitate transformation.  And I just took that leap of faith.

And I can promise you there’s not one second that goes by that makes me grateful to have Jonathan in my life even though we have finished the sessions.

 

I now have tools that I regularly use to manage challenges and I don’t have any anxiety now. Like, none. At all.  

 

I believe I have much improved overall self-confidence due to using DTO regularly for 3 months.  

 

I have overcome some pretty specific blocks and as a result, am significantly more chilled out when confronted with challenging situations.

 

I overcome adversity quickly - and have bouncebackability that I’ve never had before.

 

Jonathan’s support to me as a man has been transformative.  

 

Men - book your sessions with Jonathan.

 

I feel like I’m moving on with my life full of self-belief as a man who has stepped into his own power.  Empowered and content

Anxiety 

Andy Nathan 

Abstract Architecture

I had got myself in a state of panic and worry, which i couldn’t see a way out of. I was not sleeping, the situation was dangerously spiralling out of control and affecting people around me. 

As i was losing control of my thoughts, I was not able to concentrate on my work, which created more panic.

I had no worries about working with Jonathan and am glad i made the decision. I understood that i needed help with controlling my irrational thoughts and getting my life back on track. Jonathan was highly recommended and i made the right decision.

Since 
I made contact with Jonathan, I have had four sessions which taught me the techniques to clear my shame and anxiety to help me feel better. Using these techniques, I was able to get better and stop irrational thinking. 


I can say that i am now fully recovered and have overcome the bad period i had. 

I feel fully recovered and am able to get on with my life. I must say that this was not the first period of anxiety which i have suffered from. For me it starts with a trigger which sets of worry which quickly spirals out of control. Now that I have had the sessions with Jonathan and practised the techniques, I feel much better equipped if i am in that situation again. The DTO techniques i learned with Jonathan will help me to tackle any issue i face going forward.

Anxiety

Modern Structure

When I found Jonathan I was very sceptical, the stereotypical Psychiatrists/Therapists are not my cup of tea shall we say, the idea of laying on a couch in a dark room opposite a guy in a chair writing down my life story and asking me “how do you feel about that” is never going to happen!

I’ve suffered with Anxiety for as long as I can remember which recently developed into sever panic attacks, Jonathan worked with me for a little over two months to turn the triggers off, he doesn’t just paper over the cracks like a lot of traditional therapy.

These panic attacks were terrifying, making me feel like the only option left was to take my own life, Jonathan and the work he does literally saved my life and I’ll be forever grateful

Terrifying Panic attacks

I had a number of life struggles that I was trying to deal with before meeting Jonathan which were overwhelming me.  I was extremely stressed and emotional and struggling to find clarity.  

 

I didn’t have any particular fears as such, I am a strong believer in being open to new things, there was a worry that the method might not work.  I didn’t need counselling but I needed a way to deal with what was happening in my life and how be less stressed and happy again.

 

Its hard to explain the process that happens, its a bit like magic! Its not a change that happens overnight, but after a few weeks you notice the changes.

 

I am far less emotional, I carry less fear, I am far happier and I have been taught how to rid my mind of unnecessary fears, worries, stress and guilt.

I can honestly say that a particular issue I have had for years that I had never really come to terms with, has become the most empowering thing in my life.  I carried so much guilt and sadness, which has now changed to pride and positivity.  I wish I had met Jonathan years ago when I think how much mental pain and anguish I was in, It could have been solved years back.  I would highly recommend that you work with Jonathan, he has a unique way of freeing your mind, he’s like a magician!
