(Main Picture of Marine Dave Astle, top left)
• In 2008, I was serving as a Royal Marines Commando in the Helmand Province, Afghanistan
• Belonged to a force protection unit. Role involved protection of military convoys from local insurgents and other potential threats.
• Vehicle I was driving struck by IED (improvised explosive device), with severe damage to vehicle, but minor injuries to occupants
• This became a recurring event and eventually resulted in many colleagues suffering life changing injuries or death.
• On leaving the Royal Marine Commandos I trained and qualified as a registered Paramedic
• Although extremely rewarding, life on the frontline proved to be extremely chaotic
• Eventually, I’d become extremely angry and emotionally detached from everyday life as a result of the traumas experienced in the Marines and day-to-day emergencies, I attend
• During my time in both the Royal Navy and the health care industry I have received very little counselling. There is help available but due to the busy and turbulent nature of these industries getting effective help within either industry proved incredibly difficult.
• Throughout my journey for help I received counselling from numerous therapists who all tried to manage the symptom but didn’t tackle the cause of the anger or help to manage the level of stress maintained by being a paramedic
• All other aspects of life were being affected, including relationships
"My fiancée found Nick Davies and after a few sessions with him it became clear that he was the perfect solution to the problem I had had for many years, Nick worked with both of us and now we are in an amazing place we had never experienced since we met. Like many individuals I was initially very sceptical about therapy, however, Nick certainly proved me wrong. His calm yet entertaining approach allowed me to relax and give all. Not only did he save my relationship (and sanity) I too am now venturing on becoming a fully fledged Hypnotherapist. Thanks Nick!"
David Astle (ex-Marine) - PTSD & Relationship Issues
"Considering I wanted to get help for my partner, I was delighted to find that Nick treated us both simultaneously and has enabled us to improve our relationship - both through self-improvement & my partner working through issues themselves.
I particularly liked the way Nick remembered key information that allowed him to tailor sessions to concentrate on specific issues and used various approaches to suit. He does not work on a "one size fits all" approach and his wealth of experience and skills make him incredibly capable of helping you work through various complicated & sometimes elusive problems. Thank you, Nick!"
Shilpa Panchal - Relationship & Childhood Issues
"I can honestly say Nick has changed my life. After losing both parents close together I was tangled in grief, loneliness and suffering from post traumatic amnesia. In just one session Nick eradicated these feelings from certain episodes in my life and made me feel free; to the point where I was actually laughing at one point during the session. Now 3 weeks on I feel like a different person. Free from the shackles of grief and pain. And to top it off I have fond memories coming back of my lovely mum which I couldn't remember since her passing. My husband is a typical sceptic and even he can't believe the change in me. I can highly recommend Nick and the treatments he offers. We are all tied up with past experiences causing effects on our everyday lives. This man could be the difference you need!"
Luisa Dawson - Unresolved Grief & Psychogenic Amnesia
"I was telling all the hospital staff about your BLAST Technique® as they were confused that I smiled and looked happy when they reluctantly told me I will have to inject myself in the stomach every night for the next 5 weeks (anti-clotting drug). I don't know if you remember how bad my needle phobia was but I was the clammy one in the phlebotomy clinic clinging to a sick bowl, with a fan on my face, being told to take deep breaths. I wouldn't have coped with even thinking about injecting myself before your intervention, never mind having to actually do it. The change is so profound I actually caught myself last night thinking excitedly "Ooo, it's only an hour before I get to do my jab!" Magic! Thank you. Xx"
Dot Lindon - Needle Phobia
"I have been carrying around issues for years that have impacted on my life & relationships. I have had 4 sessions with Nick & my life has changed for the good. For the first time in my life I feel in control, happy & excited about facing the fears that I used to carry around & burden me. Nick never judged me, made me feel comfortable & used an approach (BLAST Technique©) with me that worked wonders. Thank you for making me realise my potential & become the "REAL" me!"
Client asked to remain anonymous - Trauma and Low Self Esteem
"Made my daughter feel very comfortable within a few minutes. She is a much more relaxed young person who is not getting so stressed over her schoolwork, and is much less anxious in general."
Client asked to remain anonymous - Bullying & Exam Stress
"Thanks to your input and invaluable expertise J.J. is now a happier, more confident & independant 7 year old. His ability to verbalize his worries & frustrations has increased significantly and with those changes his fear of new foods has begun to diminish. Thank you very much Nick for getting us on the right path to a happy, healthy child."
Nicky & J.J. - Eating Disorders
"Nick is just someone who puts you at instant ease with his genuine warmth, care & understanding. Within the first session, I knew we had someone who could atually make a difference & change our little wallflower into a bigger bloom & open a 'new door to confidence' & in turn, a happier outlook on life.
Nick you are a very talented man & thank you so much indeed."
Vanessa - Child's Confidence Issues
"Nick has a nice easy way, but remains professional, uses the tools at his disposal brilliantly, but with humour, easy to talk to, gains your trust very quickly. I shall always be grateful, for the successful way he dealt with my problem, where other therapists haven't come close, without question the best!"
Graham Nabb - Anger and Frustration
"Felt very relaxed in your company, you have an understanding which makes it easier for me to express my concerns. You allow me to share some personal barriers which are protected by self embarassment/confidence. It feels a release after meeting up with you."
Client asked to remain anonymous - Anxiety & OCD
"You have changed my life forever and for that I will be forever grateful!"
James A Lloyd - Alcohol and Drug Issues
"Mr Davies is a true professional. His warm, friendly demeanour and honesty was appreciated by me. Also, his high regard for code of professional conduct appealed to me. The use of various techniques for a variety of problems is another asset of him. I would recommend him to others with psychological problems."
Jagjeet Johal - Anxiety
"I want to say a big thank you for all the work you have done and are continuing to do with me over the past few weeks. I have experienced some eye opening moments (true “light bulb” moments) relating to my beliefs and behaviours and how I have let my past influence my present. These beliefs and behaviours have not always been beneficial, as I have found out, thanks to working with you and experiencing your BLAST Technique®, I can now truly say that I am moving forward to a better life.
As you know I have been a therapist for some time now and would like to say that it is my opinion that there are many therapists that need to address their own issues on a regular basis, unfortunately many do not. By addressing our own issues we will be better suited to help our clients.
By going through this process (still ongoing) with you I am clearing out and addressing a number my own less than positive beliefs (some of which have been self destructive or limiting my development) and working towards a better life for myself, my family, loved ones and for my own clients.
I highly recommend working with you and feel that there are many benefits for me doing so and many still to be realised."
David Hastings - Changing Core Limiting Beliefs and Behaviours
"I can't recommend Nick Davies enough! I came to Nick with a number of issues and in crisis. He helped me to understand my mind and to make informed choices, which before I struggled with. He helped me to look more positively at life and on negative past experiences differently. Life goals and planning for the future have taught me ways to conbsider the choices that I have before me to better succeed in life."
John Paisley - Trauma and Stress
"Just like to say you made me open up talk about things I put to the back of my mind, didn't want to address them made me feel better about myself also my partner Sue too. You were so easy to talk to good at your job. I am now able to talk more open now, we talk about more things now we have seen you. Thank you for all you have done!"
William Poynton - Tinnitus and Stress
