I have found Bernard’s personalised CD really beneficial. It has been most effective not only in the performance stage, but also in helping to promote really calm and productive practising. This was an unexpected bonus, as initially it was the psychological state in performance that I sought help with. Both aspects were positively enhanced and the latest concert had some of those enviable moments where the freedom was such that the music almost felt as if it ‘played itself’.

Bernard sent me a hypnosis CD which has helped me perform better. I’ve long suffered from extreme stage fright and self-doubts, and whilst this was mostly not apparent to the audience when I performed, it certainly detracted from my own enjoyment of the music. After regularly listening to the CD, my confidence increased and my improved concentration when performing enabled me more easily to deflect distractions and unwanted thoughts. I feel generally more secure when playing and consequently feel a much greater connection with the music. –

Bernard’s hypnosis seemed to give me a new found calmness and confidence for a particularly demanding broadcast. The fact that all went well I attribute in no small part to the techniques he used.-
I had been unsuccessful twice in a diploma exam due to my nervousness on the day. On the third occasion with the help of the personal CD I played with much improved confidence and passed comfortably.
It was suggested to me I use one of these CD’s for my upcoming Grade Eight exam. I felt my playing had more authority and security than before and, for the first time ever, gained a distinction.
Having been beset by performance anxieties for years I listened to my CD almost daily for several weeks before my recital and to my surprise felt much more confident and in control on the day than I expected to.
