Research has shown that the mind/body heals itself optimally when it is not in a state of crisis. This crisis can be either physical, mental or spiritual (existential crisis), and can be  caused by experiencing trauma, directly, indirectly or vicariously. These traumas range from early childhood trauma (beyond remembrance, up until 7yrs of age), forgotten trauma or even imagined trauma, and remembered trauma. The mind-body link is proven beyond doubt, dealing with trauma in a compassionate, non-judgmental way leads to long lasting benefits and positive quality of life.


I fit the session content to the clients process not vice versa. I don't believe in cookie cutter approaches, one size does not fit all when dealing with individuals who are on their own special path.

I found the Trauma Tension Release exceptionally beneficial during a very traumatic period in my life. Together with Donovan's transformation coaching skills, I managed to get myself together again and started my healing process. I appreciate that Donovan cared enough to always keep me pointed in the right direction. I highly recommend Donovan


With a child that was diagnosed with Paranoid Schizophrenia at the age of 24 and drug addiction problems, I was against the wall 2 years ago. Three mental health clinics/institutions and two rehab clinics could not change my sons behaviour or old ways. I was told by many doctors/psychiatrists that even if he stays on his meds he will not get better, only if he starts taking responsibility for his life will there be slight improvement.


Donovan has given my child hope for a normal life, guiding him step by step how to get his life back by focusing on the positive healthy things in life. My son has a job, interacts with all kinds of people and I can see his confidence growing all the time. I have learned that due to my hectic lifestyle I sometimes needed sessions myself, that helped me tremendously.
Donovan's ability to calm anybody in a very chaotic situations is remarkable. He always has very helpful tricks when you think things are no longer fixable. His honesty and gentle way of discussing third party perspectives makes sessions have a positive outcome.


I've learned: Life is to short and valuable not to invest in a happy life, and to be happy we need to start with ourselves...our mental state! 


Thank you Donovan, you have definitely changed a lot in my household for the better


My 7yr old son was about to be labeled ADHD at his school by his teachers, on completing 3 months TRE with Donovan my son no longer has to sit in front of the class, received a Cum Laude for prepared reading, and is so much calmer and more focused than previous. I appreciate your effort and guidance Donovan, thank you


Prior to my session with with Donovan I had no idea how Hypnotherapy worked and what would result from it. I was pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. Donovan clearly explained what would happen throughout the session. Afterwards, I felt deeply relaxed and had the best nights sleep in months. Apart from the relaxation, I noticed subtle positive changes and shifts on how I  perceived myself and reacted to difficult situations. My confidence and self belief are much improved as a result. Thanks Donovan


Donovan has helped me understand that I am able to overcome life's challenges with his no nonsense practical approach and guidance. It works!
