I found Duncan’s website after searching for a really positive solution to an acute period of anxiety that had taken over my life. I have always known that I had a tendency to be anxious when stressed but this time I was really struggling to shake it and I wanted to find a way of tackling it long term. Duncan contacted me very soon after I made the enquiry and I immediately knew that he was going to help me get back to who I used to be. After the first session I was ready to tackle my main fears at work and the constant negative, destructive and irrational thoughts. Duncan was straight talking, highly motivating but most importantly he knew exactly what I was going through. His insight into anxiety is what really helped me; along with a hugely positive method of dealing with the problem. Due to his knowledge, his incredible positivity, reassurance and contact between sessions to keep you on track, I am now back on the road to where I want to be. My anxiety went from a 8/10 to a 2-3 in two weeks and things continue to get better. Optimism has returned, I can now concentrate again on tasks, conversations and goals. I am back to being me. I cannot recommend Duncan enough to anyone struggling to keep on top of anxiety. He showed me the path to ‘grip’ and deal with this problem and it worked; I now have my mind back. Thanks Duncan. Alistair - Metropolitan Police Officer
I struggled with intense anxiety for over a year after being diagnosed with a heart condition which meant I had to give up competitive sport as well as losing a friend who dropped dead suddenly playing football. My anxiety started as health related and then intensified to the extent where it was effecting my work and social life. I went into unbearable states of panic, some lasting days.. I was convinced there was something seriously wrong with me.... until I met Duncan. He has a great ability to explain and unravell anxiety in a way I didn't think was possible.. over a few sessions he drilled his strategy into me over and over - the difference after the first week was unreal and I am now the boss of 'it' Get in touch - you won't regret it! Stu - Automotive Specialist, Rugby
Upon realising I would like to speak to a professional about some anxiety issues I was having, I decided to use Google to find the person who I thought would suit me. Duncan was that person, I had no idea what to expect on my first session but he exceeded all my expectations. He gives you a fantastic method for not only dealing with but identifying the anxiety. Since being a client of his I have already seen a huge improvement, I now don't fear the anxiety because I don't give it the attention it deserves. I would and already have recommended him to people, especially if you're looking for a great, solid guy with more of a no nonsense approach to helping you. - Michael - IT Company Director, Wellingborough
I contacted Duncan earlier this year, after anxiety, irrational thoughts and overthinking began to take hold of my life. I get married later this year, and was suffering from being unable to focus or plan for one of the biggest and most important days of my life! Duncan replied to my initial enquiry both quickly and professionally, and was very reassuring during our first phone call. My first one-on-one session with Duncan was very productive, as Duncan was very accommodating, honest and straight talking - I felt as though I was completely understood. I was given a clear strategy to use to disarm anxiety, and I now no longer suffer. Duncan has provided me the tools and additional support outside of sessions to enable me to move forward with my life, for which I am both very thankful and grateful for. Ben - Operations Co-Ordinater, Market Harborough
I spent years being stuck in the vicious circle of stress – anxiety – obsession and more completely fake health issues than I can even remember I finally threw the towel in and decided to get some help. Whilst searching the evil internet once again, finally some good came from it. I stumbled upon Duncan's website and thought lets give it a try. The main reason why Duncan? Well.. I wanted someone who could relate to me and who had experienced this for themselves. All I can say is thank you. He helped me get rid of a lot of the demons, some of which I hadn't even realised as the route cause. Love your positive outlook and attitude. A Legend! - Chris, Bedfordshire
After 7 1/2 years in the British Army and then being forced to leave, due to losing my leg below the knee in Afghanistan, I re-entered the world feeling normal. I thought I lived a relatively normal life, but I could slowly feel myself falling deeper into a black hole. I had pushed my friends and family away, I couldn't sleep and I was afraid to leave the house. I thought I was suffering with PTSD, Depression, Anxiety and was slowly losing my mind.. After researching and finding Duncan via the internet, we finally made contact over the phone and after just one 30 minute conversation with him, I instantly felt the whole weight of the world lift off of my shoulders and later that night, I slept the best I had in months. This man was amazing and I knew he would help me. When the day came for our first face to face session, I was nervous, I turned up 20 mins early and nearly didn't get out of my car. I eventually took the plunge and made my way to his front door, pushed the bell and was then greeted by Duncan, who instantly made me feel at ease. . After a straight talking, intense, sixty minute session, Duncan gave me the tools I needed to take control of my life again and I knew in myself that things were about to change. When I got home, I was a different man, my fiancé saw an instant change in me straight away and couldn't believe the transformation! Two weeks later, I came back for a second session and that was all I needed with this man. He’s a miracle worker, as not only did Duncan change my life, he saved my life! I seriously owe this man, because without him, I really don’t know where I would be, without the tools to deal with life , I’d be alone. I’d happily recommend this man in a heart beat to anyone who needs help. It was a big step for me seeking help, but Duncan made it so so easy. I can’t thank you enough Duncan and you’ve made a friend in me for life. - Tony, Ex Soldier, British Army, Rugby, Warwickshire.
Before I first spoke to Duncan, anxiety had a grip on my life, which was affecting my business, my family and ultimately my happiness. I suffered from overthinking, in the shape of irrational thoughts and irrational money worries. It truly felt as if I was going through life with the handbrake on. After a couple of tough weeks, I decided to act and found Duncan online and was captivated by the outstanding testimonials that his past clients had given him. After our initial phone conversation I felt a hundred times better. After our first face to face session I felt like JT again! Duncan made me realise the truths of anxiety and how it tries to embed itself into your mind. We then went through a clear and simple strategy on how to defeat and generate control over the anxiety and when I left him after the first session, I instantly felt a switch in the way I felt towards the irrational thoughts. I noticed an immediate change and with Duncan's strategy, I started to disarm my anxiety! Since seeing him, my business has flourished, family life is amazing and life is fun again....which is 100% down to what I have learnt in my time through working with him! I would thoroughly recommend Duncan without a seconds hesitation. His methods are delivered in such a way, that if you listen and put them into practice, you will not fail! JT- Business Owner
I went to see Duncan last year after suffering with an unexpected bout of anxiety, which came out of nowhere and started to interfere with my work and home life. Id never had it before and it started small but quickly grew legs, so I knew I had to do something about it. Duncan was very reassuring, very quickly put my mind at ease and after the 1st session, not only had the anxiety lifted, but I was given a specific train of thought to follow which gave me instant relief. I went back to see him a couple more times, communicated regularly with him for some further guidance and am proud to say I haven't needed to go back since. I have since referred other colleagues / friends to see him over other challenges and all have had the same results. I cant recommend him highly enough.- David, Consultant - Peterborough
I went to see Duncan in December after suffering from anxiety which made me feel unable to go back to work. I had been very tearful and had also become very worked up over a minor past event. After the initial phone call with Duncan I felt instantly better knowing he understood what I was going through and after visiting Duncan twice I am now able to apply the method he taught me and not let the anxiety affect me in the way it had. Duncan was straight to the point and gave me a practical way to understanding and dealing with anxiety. Leanne - Administration Assistant, Luton
I had an extremely strange experience at a job interview three months ago in which my mind went blank half way through the process, causing me to lose my train of thought, which was not only embarrassing but resulted in me not getting the position I so badly wanted. From this point on, I started to avoid (procrastinate) being in situations that involved me presenting myself to people and even avoided social events, with the worry a similar issue may occur. I needed to regain some confidence in myself so got in contact with Duncan in the hope that he could not only help me cope with this new found fear, but be able to face these situations without panicking and going to pieces. Duncan instilled that confidence back in me again over the course of a few sessions and I now present myself in the way I used to, with purpose and conviction, but without the worry of making a fool of myself. I'm really grateful for the additional support he gave me outside of the 1-1's and have used this new found confidence in other areas of my life. Very highly recommended!- David, Business Development Manager - North London
Lost my confidence after a difficult separation from my husband and struggled to overcome the fear of getting back into work and socialize with all the friends I'd lost because of my relationship. The confidence soon returned and I'm now back in full time work and having fun the way I always used to. Great coaching and clear direction from a great guy!!- Mary - Estate Agent - Olney
Duncan gave me a thorough understanding and confidence to deal with the anxiety that was making me feel so down. I looked on the internet to find someone who could help me with my health anxiety and sleep anxiety and that is where I found Duncan. He phoned at first for some back ground information and immediately I felt he understood how I was feeling. As soon as we met, he was very calming and understanding and explained in depth about anxiety and how it works, he gave me all the tools I needed to get me back on track. I can’t thank him enough for his help! Scioban - Catering Manager, Dunstable
An incident when I was younger led to me having obsessive, irrational thoughts, in which I believed the incident would happen again at any time and any place. This led me to dealing with Anxiety and Irrational Thoughts alone for a number of years and becoming more and more withdrawn, so it could never happen again, before finally caving and getting help. However, the help I received didn’t seem to achieve much. After that didn’t work out, a family member pointed me in the direction of Duncan, I had a quick phone call with him and immediately felt better, his calm demeanour, knowledge and genuine openness about his own dealings with anxiety really help to put you at ease and make you truly believe he can help you. Once the first session arrived, I was extremely nervous, but as soon as Duncan greets you, he helps you to settle in and relax and before you know it the 60 or so minute session is underway. Duncan gives you methods to help you manage and deal with the anxiety, which works wonders, but better yet, it’s explained and broken down in such a way that you can visualise the anxiety, helping you to then picture it in such a way that will benefit you dealing with it. As well as these methods and explanations about anxiety as a whole, there is constant support at all times, just at the end of the phone, whether it’s texts or calls, which was amazing, for if you have a rough patch or your confidence wavers, Duncan is there to remind you of key aspects that will immediately lift you back up to where you were after the sessions. After dealing with it for so long and failing to get help a couple of times I was sceptical at first, but he proved me wrong. I can’t thank him enough, as the weight off my shoulders is immense and I’m really starting to enjoy life again! Thank you so much and would highly recommend to anyone!! - Henry - Mechanical Engineer, Milton Keynes
I am a very confident person and would never have believed I would have issues with anxiety. However, I am required to pass a work related fitness test every year. Each year I struggle with the concept, this year was particularly difficult as I realised that, although I was physically able to complete the test, I was unable to dismiss the physical symptoms which brought on an actual panic attack. I have in the past dismissed others who had suffered in this way, but now I realise how they felt. In desperation I searched the internet for help and came across Duncan Spedding. From the moment I sent him a message my journey began. The reply was almost instant, quickly followed by a telephone call and then a 1 to 1 session. Duncan is a friendly caring man who instills confidence from the very beginning, he is dynamic and very supportive. I only needed one session with him to cure my fears and despite my reservations, I found myself applying the strategy he taught me and went on to pass the test. I now feel equipped to deal with any future episodes which may occur. I would highly recommend Duncan to anyone who needs the kind of support he offers. Michelle - Prison Officer, Northamptonshire.
I was trapped and felt like I was viewing things from a glass bubble, looking out on the world. I could see how it could be, I could see how others could live happily and fulfilled and that's what I wanted more than anything. But, I couldn't work out how to make it happen for myself and always doubted that this kind of life would never be possible for someone like me. Someone I knew recommended Duncan and although apprehensive at first, I turned to him for help. I completely opened up to him and told him how I had struggled over the last five years, how I wanted to change but didn't know how to do it or go about it. Duncan pointed me in the direction of finding my own happiness and was there every step of the way, face to face when I needed it, but also at the end of the phone and via text if I was struggling. The glass bubble then began to crack and although it wasn't easy at first with the occasional wobble I am now so much happier and loving life so much more. This is someone who really cares and goes the extra mile to help people achieve what they need and want and I'm extremely grateful to have him there as a consistent support. When I look back, I realise that I was always a strong person, but I just needed someone to make me understand while I was feeling the way I was and how to change those negative feelings into positive ones. Thank you so much!! - Gemma, Consultant - Southampton
I went through a prolonged period of time not sleeping well which caused me unnecessary stress and started to have an effect on my performance at work, causing me to put myself under pressure. I had done my research, after deciding to look for help and noticed through reading Duncan's website and then later talking to him on the phone, he had been through something very similar in his time as a Professional Footballer. I quickly learnt, that there was no problem and I just needed to find the right strategy to not let it bother me, which I did and now stick to. Quality sleep quickly followed and thanks to working with Duncan, soon after this ``blip`` I achieved a promotion at work!! He knew the problem and the answers straight away and I was amazed how simple it was to sort it. I cant tell you the relief I felt! - Andrew, Vice President - Bedford
My sleeping patterns were completely out of sync as a result of illness and cessation of taking of sleeping pills for years. I found Duncan online and paid him a visit in Northampton. He listened and understood where I was at and talked it through with me. His advice to me was very simple but very powerful and I took it onboard and followed it all and very quickly started to get positive results. Withing a week of following his instructions my sleep patterns began to change and on the second week my sleep was well on the way to being normal again. I am now back to sleeping normally and cannot thank him enough for getting my life back to normal. I recommend anyone with sleep problems to get in touch - Owen - Carpenter, Bedfordshire
Seven years ago I wasn't able to fall asleep for several nights due to a stressful period in my life. This triggered the thought that I could never sleep. I suffered severe nightly panic attacks & became petrified of going to sleep. I tried numerous therapies, self help books, even attended a sleep clinic! Very gradually things did improve, but the fear never left me. I was drinking to fall asleep & ended up in the spare room. What's wrong with me? I have a loving family, no job or money worries? So decided to tackle this bad habit once & for all, about 5 months ago. But this started making my anxiety worse than ever! I contacted Duncan & after the first call/visit I slept for 5 nights in a row - this felt amazing. I then went on holiday, had a blip, so I text Duncan, who knew exactly what the problem was & put me back on track enabling me to enjoy the rest of my holiday. He teaches you not to be afraid of anxiety & explains what it is & why it does it. You learn how to welcome and expect the uneccasary thoughts and learn that it’s all an illusion. The unbearable feelings sensations start to lessen their hold on you! I'm so grateful for Duncan’s genuine caring commitment in helping me feel better & deal with any relapses. My husband was shocked that I was back in our bedroom & glad to get his wife back! Jill, Store Manager - Northampton
I contacted Duncan at a very difficult time in my life. I had just had baby number 3 and found myself in the midst of a crippling sleep anxiety issue that was in danger of taking over my life. I had never suffered from anything like this before so found it incredibly frightening. The more I tried to sleep the harder it became, I was unable to look after my children, unable to take part in my normal family life. I discovered Duncan's website and immediately contacted him. From that moment, and with his help, I began to take back control of my life. His knowledge and support was invaluable. I went from being petrified of not sleeping and using sleeping tablets, to needing no medication at all and sleeping soundly. How can I ever repay that debt?! If you are suffering from any form of anxiety- contact Duncan, he will be your lifeline and will help you to take your life back! Sophie, Teacher - Milton Keynes
I struggled with sleeping for almost two years, it wasn’t constant however horrible when it happened. It got to the point where I was fearing not being able to sleep and therefore not sleeping. I was browsing online and came across Duncan’s website, I wasn’t going to actually get help with it I was just looking for information, however when I read the website, the way that Duncan explained things resonates was with me so much I felt compelled to get in touch. When I did, Duncan told me everything I was feeling before I had even told him anything. He truly is an expert in this field and has a brilliant, positive and engaging character. I now feel so much better about sleep and what he taught me has changed things for me, not just with sleep but in general. - Jeremy - National Sales Manager, Kettering
Thanks to Duncan, I’m sleeping normally again. I’m so grateful for his help and support, 24/7! I’d had difficulty sleeping on occasions during my life and had simply put up with it. However, following a bout of unrelated illness, I fell into an extended bout of sleeplessness. It really got to me and I found myself feeling anxious during the day, worrying about not being able to sleep that night. I went to the doctor, who gave me sleeping tablets ‘for a short period until I got back to normal’. Although the sleeping tablets provided some temporary relief, they didn’t solve the underlying problem. I found Duncan online, his website explained how he might be able to help me, so I decided to find out more. He called me within 24 hours of making contact and we immediately struck up a rapport. I decided to take up a few sessions with him. It was a very good decision indeed because he immediately knew what my issue was. He assured me he could help, and that proved to be the case. Very clear advice, and importantly, reassurance. He truly believed he could help me get over my issue, and he did. I am very grateful to him and would strongly recommend anyone suffering with similar problems to get in touch with Duncan. You will be very pleased you have, I now know he can help you too! Kevin – Accountant, Bedfordshire.
After suffering with my own Anxieties for about a year, Duncan gave me the tools needed to change my whole mindset, and totally eliminated any fears or doubts I once had. I’m proud to say I am finally back to normal. It’s also nice to know that Duncan is always there at the end of a phone for some support or reassurance if needed. He ultimately gave me my life back!
