I first met Dov when i was too scared to contemplate the future and was continually looking over my shoulder at the past. I was trapped in fear. Before meeting Dov I had tried many other approaches to work through the anxiety, most of which suppressed it just increasing the fear. Meeting with Dov was different. His connectedness, optimism , understanding, belief in me and non judgmental approach – combined with regular nsa and many practical strategies assisted me greatly in shifting the beliefs and thought patterns that had taken over my life. If you have the opportunity to cross paths with this inspiring man, be prepared because your life will never be the same again.(*)


Having a gurgling tummy and a clenched jaw throughout any air travel was starting to hinder my life as I would feel ill for days prior and following any travel that required stepping on to a plane. However I only finally contacted Dov when my anxiety started affecting my work life. Having to ask your boss drive you to A and E because you think you are having a heart attack at 24 years old, only to be told you are having a panic attack is fairly humiliating. It was a brilliant turning point however, as it made me contact Dov…and I have been moving in a positive direction ever since. In the year since I first went to see Dov I am astounded at how much more positive my life is, and how much more connected and grounded I feel. There are still challenges in my life, but that is life!! I now have strategies for the situations that would previously have turned me into an emotional wreck. I am much more aware of what I am doing, how I think and feel about myself and my experiences, and I am learning to allow experiences and feelings to happen, rather than fight them. I love how Dov is straight up and how I can be straight up with him about what is going on. So many amazing things have happened in my life in the past year, I am sure I have Dov to thank for helping me make the most of the opportunities I have been given, and not run fearfully from them and towards my own self doubt. I still have my moments of anxiety, but I recognise them and it may sound silly but, I feel braver about them, and I have Dov to thank for that!(*)


For over 20 years I suffered from debilitating anxiety attacks and panic attacks which I found terrifying, and made me think there was something seriously wrong with me. I tried many things over this time to manage my anxiety, all of which helped for a period of time, but none of these things gave me lasting relief. As a result my self-esteem had taken a battering over the years. As I started having sessions with Dov some months ago, over a very short period of time I noticed a major difference in how the anxiety was manifesting! He explained the fight or flight system where the body can end up in a fairly continual ‘fight’ state, which, for me, may have been causing an imbalance in my nervous system causing anxiety. Sounded far too simple to explain the years of high anxiety I had been living through. However, as I progressed through care, releasing tension and re-balancing my nervous system, I very quickly noticed a difference in the anxiety – to the point where it resolved back to a ‘normal’ level. Along the way we also explored a different way of thinking. This, combined with the NSA, has allowed me to be living without panic attacks or over the top anxiety consistently for the first time in over 20 years! The biggest thing for me is this has been a lasting change for which I am extremely grateful. As a wonderful side effect I have noticed a remarkable increase in my ability to respond to and manage work stresses, to the point I have been offered unexpected advancement opportunities in my job. And now I feel up to the challenge as the energy that was going in to the anxiety is now available for me to use in other areas of my life. An added extra benefit is that I have become so much more the person I know I was meant to be – more confident, realizing some of my strengths, and seeing the gifts in the difficulties I have experienced during my life. I had no idea life had so much potential – so now instead of being perpetually afraid I am looking forward to my future with hope and anticipation!(*)
