When I started doing these new techniques the media (TV, newspapers and radio) wanted to know if it really did work, so they started putting me to the test.

I proved my "Fast Track Stop Smoking in 30 minutes" twice on TV  one against 2 other methods . My Fast Track hypnosis was the only one that was successful. Another programme, I had to help a psychologist overcome her agoraphobia, again using my Fast Track methods.

And recently I proved the Fast Track weight control is incredibly successful!. click here

Fear OF Flying

On another occasion a programme featured me helping a company director overcome the fear of flying, then the cameraman who was in the studio filming it came along to get over his flying phobia as well! .

This is his story

"Hi Alan, I can't thank you enough. I've just had my first holiday with a flight in 7 years. I can say that with all honesty I had some nervous times coming up to the holiday. With the help of the CD's and most of all self hypnosis these were soon settled. The Palma flight was delayed for 1 hour , which meant all the flying time would be in darkness. Even when I liked to fly I didn't like flying in the dark. As I boarded the plane at Belfast International Airport I felt good, but the really testing time for me was the closing of the aircraft doors. Any other time at this stage I would have been in a really bad way with fear. As the plane taxied towards the runway I could not believe how calm I felt, this in itself gave me a major boost.

As we took off I looked at C.... my wife, and gave her a big smile and told her I felt great. She also felt great, because usually by now I'd be gripping her hand with vice grip tightness. I had my mini disc with me which I had copied your CD's onto (just as a standby), but the cabin crew announced during the safety talk that no electronic equipment was permitted during take off. I still had my back up anyway, the self hypnosis. I used it a couple of times - not that I had problems but I just wanted to top up.

The flight lasted 2 hours 15 minutes, on arrival at Palma airport I felt fantastic and I got C..... to take this photo of me in my seat on the plane. As you can see by my smile I was so pleased with myself. It's been a long time since I felt like that getting off a plane. I had a great week and never once worried about the return flight.

I'm home now and cant wait to go on holiday again. The last flight I had was November 2001 from Belfast to Birmingham, we had gone there for a weekend break. I was really frightened even though the flight was a smooth one. I could not make myself board the plane for the flight home, and had to arrange a coach and boat for the return trip to Belfast. Booking the holiday to Majorca was a big step for me , and I could not have done it without your help. I was the target of a few friendly jokes from my work mates when they heard I had gone for Hypnotherapy, but I can say now that I had the last laugh.Alan once again thanks from both of us. C..........

Panic Attacks

Another programme featured me helping a young boy of ten years of age, who was having panic attacks. He did not want to go to school because of these attacks, and tried to throw himself out of a car at 40 mph. Again this problem were resolved in a very short space of time.

Over the years there were many, many more tests!

There is a great deal of satisfaction in my job, and people would often ask me if I ever use hypnosis on myself. Of course I do, and have done so throughout my long career!
