‘my only regret is that I didn’t go to see him earlier’
I initially went to see David after getting redlined on 21’s, I was struggling terribly with nerves on every appearance and on the lead up to them, I knew I had the knowledge in me but was finding it hard to show the examiners what I knew and was almost self sabotaging the appearance just to get out of the chair as quickly as I could.
I must admit I was initially sceptical but was willing to try anything.
I found David extremely calming and knowledgeable about the whole process and he helped me with different techniques to help control the nerves.
I can honestly say that after seeing David, whilst the nerves never disappeared completely for me I was no longer filled with dread in the waiting room and in the chair and was able to show the examiner what I knew.
I had 5 appearances after seeing David for the first time,and only failed to score once with Mr Gunning, I received my Req on the 26th July and my green badge on 5th October,
I can’t recommend David enough I my only regret is that I didn’t go to see him earlier.
He has asked me to send you a photo of him receiving his badge and to pass on his sincere thanks to you for all your help in his knowledge journey.
You made a great difference to his confidence and helped him get through those dreaded appearances.
Thank you once again. Best wishes
I can’t stress how helpful I found both David and his sessions were.
When I first came to see David (upon hearing from other study partners based at the London Knowledge School in Grays) I was struggling big time handling my nerves and anxiety on my appearances. The nerves were causing me to almost self sabotage my appearances just so I could finish them over with quickly.
After having a few sessions with David i came from 3-0 down on 28s to get back to 3-3. Albeit I messed the last one up to lose 4-3, I had another crack at 28s with more sessions to get through 4-1, followed by passing 21s at the first time of asking. I didn’t see a finishing line prior to meeting David but he helped me realise it wasn’t an IF I’ll finish the Knowledge, it was WHEN!
Thankfully he was right!
‘I walked out feeling on top of the world’
I have nothing but praise for David at 4u4 life even after the first consultation I walked out feeling on top of the world.
David helped me through the Knowledge, he helped with my nerves and my confidence, he also helped with lots of other things in life, I gained so much from the sessions even when not being hypnotise I found the chats we had really good and would highly recommend him.
‘agreed to do the Channel 4 documentary last year and have never looked back’
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your services in helping me with my severe Anxiety attacks whilst I was on the Knowledge of London exam appearances.
I had never suffered from Anxiety before and just thought I had bad nerves, so for you to highlight the difference and work with me step by step to control it was the best thing I ever did.
I spent 6 years on the. KOL and the final exam process was where I fell down and nearly gave up after being double red lined but decided to give it another shot but had to do something to control my ‘nerves’ then another student gave me your number and the rest is history.
I felt so much better after a few sessions that I even had the courage to agree to do the Channel 4 documentary last year and have never looked back. I finally received my ‘Handshake’ last August and got my badge in October.
It’s not been an easy transition for me but gradually you get used to the long hours and change of circumstance from your previous life’s employment! For me it is one step at a time but nothing beats being your own boss!
Thank you once again and I strongly advise anyone dealing with Anxiety no matter in what profession or circumstance to get help and let David help you deal with it!
All the best
‘he managed to instil positive thinking and calmness in me’
I met David pretty late into my exam process. After 9 appearances and only 1 D, I moved onto 21’s. It was here that I seemed to lose my way and my confidence. I was given 2 D’s in a row and my head was messed up, I couldn’t see a line when sitting in the chair during the exam.
David came recommended by some colleagues at my knowledge school. After seeing David, by using different techniques, he managed to instil positive thinking and calmness in me. I felt at ease walking into the exam room, could see everything clearly and called the best I ever had.
I would thoroughly recommend using David.
‘I loved our sessions and felt incredibly positive and alive after them’
I simply cannot recommend David & 4u4life enough. I have absolutely no doubt that David was a significant factor in my achievement of passing the Knowledge of London and doing so relatively quickly.
I have to say I was a sceptic. I had never tried any form of alternative therapy before and on my way to the first appointment with David seriously doubted hypnotherapy would work on me. It did and I’ll forever be grateful to David and the part he played in my achievement.
I had scored on my first appearance despite the nerves but I’d flopped my second. I had been asked four runs that I was sure I knew but just couldn’t get them out. It was as if my brain had shut down and my mind was full of a grey fog that just grew worse the harder I tried to calm down. After three runs I was exhausted and just couldn’t wait to get out the appearance room scoring the inevitable D. I just couldn’t understand how this had happened to me. I had previously held a management position with a great deal of responsibility and had never floundered in such a way before. I felt embarrassed and straight away began to fear the next appearance in 56 days time. Something had to change but I wasn’t sure what I could do.
Some of my colleagues from the Knowledge school had been working with David but I just didn’t think it would be for me but I was pretty desperate not to go through that same appearance room freeze again. I knew my stuff but hadn’t been able to perform as I should.
I met David and was immediately at ease. He was a normal bloke and I someone I could chat to and explain how I’d felt. I felt he understood what I was feeling during appearances and above all he had strategies for dealing with it that worked. From my first session with him he totally changed how I mentally prepared for my appearance and also how I physically responded in terms of my body position and little things such as stopping me covering my face with my hands as I thought of my line.
After two sessions I went for my third appearance. It was no longer the ordeal I had experienced previously. An element of nerves were still there but I found myself more confident and able to think clearly. I could see the lines I wanted to call and use the knowledge I had gained effectively. I scored an A and had recovered the lost ground of my previous D in one go.
David and I settled into a pattern of 2 sessions in the week prior to every appearance. I scored on the next eight consecutive appearances and only received one D before being awarded my green badge which was achieved in a total of thirteen appearances.
Let me be straight. I worked extremely hard on the Knowledge. For me it was a seven day week and often twelve hours a day effort and if you don’t do the work no amount of hypnotherapy will get you through. However, I have no doubt at all that my passage through the appearance stage was made more straightforward and certainly quicker because of David and his work with me. He knows the Knowledge and understands how it works and the effect it has on candidates. We worked on a wide variety of techniques and it never ceased to amaze me how David was able to suggest a little tweak here and there that I’d implement successfully during my appearance. I’ll be honest I loved our sessions and felt incredibly positive and alive after them.
I’m not sure what else to say really other than I cannot recommend David and 4u4life enough. He clearly has the ability and experience to have a substantial beneficial effect on those engaged in the Knowledge of London but I know his skills have a much broader range and I have no hesitation in urging you not to suffer in silence any longer. Go and see David and start to feel more positive about life and what it can give you.
‘this help is unbelievable and will change your life’
I was doing over 60 hours a week on the knowledge, I got red lined on 56’s and I was now 3-1 down on 28’s, It wasn’t like I wasn’t putting the work in I will just have to blame it on the chair as I’m sure you will all agree, as soon as I would come out of an appearance, the lines would come straight to me, of course it’s too late then.
Then I found David and hypnotherapy.
I never believed in it at first, but trust me it works I went straight through 28’s then 21’s and up against some of the main people you would not want to call your name in the waiting room, in the end I would of happily done an appearance sitting in front of all the examiners at the same time, this help is unbelievable and will change your life.
I’m now working with David with my fitness goals now, watch this space, be lucky !
‘Thank you David for all your help’
I first went to see David 10 months ago as I was trying to pass the knowledge to be a London cab driver and kept failing appearances.
I have suffered with dyslexia my whole life and was told to leave school early because there was no point in sitting any exams.
David used hypnotherapy to help me to control my nerves and learn memory techniques so I was able to pass the last six exam appearances in a row and qualify fully as a London Cab driver.
Thank you David for all your help.
I thoroughly recommend him and will be seeing him again to sort some other things out later.
David is very professional and made me feel very relaxed. He explained during consultation how the hypnotherapy would work and what I could expect from it. By working with David I managed to overcome my anxiety before and during exams. Highly recommended.
