“I have known DrDan personally for several years and his reputation in the community is impeccable.  He is compassionate, kind hearted, patient, and one of the most knowledgeable clinicians that I know in the areas of Dementia and its effects on the individual and their families. He steps into their world and shares what they are experiencing, to allow us valuable insight into their fears, anxieties, and even their hopes and dreams.  What a beautiful, heartwarming and wonderful way to approach this very challenging time in one’s life. Just being in the presence of DrDan is comforting and reassuring and certainly gives one renewed strength, assurance and purpose.”Diane Skaff, Senior Support Solutions

Dr. Dan’s passion for education and his mission to improve understanding and outcomes for dementia patients and their families world-wide is both inspiring and humbling!” Deanna WilsonMarketing Director at Right At Home Northwest Phoenix

“The many years of research only shows the passion and undying determination of Dr Dan. With such a knowledgeable role model, who is the world leader in hypnosis for people living with dementia, and known as the Dementia Doctor in the UK, I couldn’t have been luckier to have found Dr Dan. His years of research with Dr Simon Duff has enabled him to develop the teaching program for clinicians. Together with his wife, Kathy, have founded Dementia Therapy Specialists and this takes Dr Dan on many lecturing circuits. I am looking forward to the day they can come to Australia so Dr Dan can share his unique therapy program.”  Robyn Watford, Dementia Hypnotherapy Specialist, Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist, Brisbane Australia.

“Dr Dan is a unique and good soul with qualities that make a wonderful teacher. His delivery is engaging, the course material is thorough and clear with Dr Dan giving an informative and up-to-date insight into dementia treatment and research from across the globe. The techniques taught are practical and supportive to both the patient and their carers. The additional Skype support sees Dr Dan answer any questions simply and his encouragement is uplifting and motivating. It is a true blessing to have studied with him, his positive and genuinely compassionate approach to dementia treatment is inspiring.” – Rachael Armstrong
