Felix is an amazing human being! He has transformed my daughters life and I am forever grateful to him. He is very personable and makes you feel at ease which is something you cannot learn. I would highly recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Felix changed my life permanently for the better. He helped me, where noone else could. I was in a very dark place because of my ARFID/SED and Felix has shown me a way out. I can eat so many more foods now, I lost a lot of weight (50+ pounds, still have a little more to lose!) and my social life has expanded beyond my belief. The only thing I regret is, that I didn't contact him sooner. I will be forever grateful for his help. If you suffed from ARFID/SED - go see him. Don't hesitate. Your life will be better for it.

For the last 40 years I have barely touched any fruit or veg, following a family member having seen Felix previously for a similar condition I took the plunge myself and couldn't be happier I had done so. I felt completely relaxed during the session, everything was explained and questions answered which helped me to understand exactly what my my body / mind was doing. By the end of the session, not only did I feel more confident about trying new foods but actually tried several things I wouldn't have touched even an hour before. Following the session and over the first weekend since my appointment I have been able to continue on with the momentum and have had a stir-fry, even ate all my veg with a roast dinner and have felt great doing so. I'm trying new food everyday and really enjoying doing so, I just wish I'd done something like this 20 years ago! I'd recommend Felix to anyone, I actually already have done so.

My daughter has suffered all her life with restrictive eating and was holding her back from eating at school and at home and she wanted to change. We went through the channels of our doctor and was referred on but it did not help my daughter. I saw a tv programme and began to research and came across Felix. My daughter saw him once and I can honestly say it has been life changing for her. The fear of food has completely gone and is trying new food all the time. If you or your children are suffering in the same way you must get in touch with Felix. We are so pleased we did. Thank you

Took my son to see Felix in July 2016 for treatment regarding ARFID. For 9 years he had eaten selected baby food jars and fromais frais after never weaning. Therapy with Felix was successful and has changed the whole families life. Harry has enough range in his diet to enable us to eat out and for him to be able to mix with his peers. Highly recommended.

My husband had a Skype session with Felix for his fear of flying. His comment to me afterwards was “it’s weird as I’m actually trying to get myself worried about the flight but I just can’t”! He was still a little concerned on the flight but nothing like he was previously. Looking forward to our next holiday as he is usually in a state of high anxiety for around 6 weeks before we go so hoping to see an improvement there.

I’ve lived with crippling anxiety around trying new foods for the 20 years I’ve been alive. All it took was an hour and a half of help from Felix, and my entire world has been changed. I can try foods now with no anxiety whatsoever, and have the chance to live a new and healthy life. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone with SED/ARFID.

The treatment with Felix has changed my life in ways I can’t even explain. I can now try and eat foods that I would t have gone near before, my diet is healthier, I’m feeling so happy and proud of myself, but I think what shocked me there most was the relief I felt a few days after. I think I was constantly so tense and so stressed about food, that I didn’t notice it, stress was my normal. Being able to sit down and eat and just not even think about it is mind blowing and the relief isn’t sth that caught me off guard. I will never be able to thank Felix enough for this. If you are thinking about doing the video or the face to Face ID strongly recommend that you do it right now, you will not regret it!

After 37 years of struggling with SED, I was amazed by the results I got in just one session with Felix. For the first time in my life I am eating a healthy, balanced diet, my weight is down to a healthy level, and I feel much happier and more optimistic about my future. I have no fear of unfamiliar foods and am enjoying trying all the dishes I've been missing. I would wholeheartedly recommend Felix to anyone. He's friendly, professional, and really understands SED better than anyone else.

After treatment my daughters life changed for the better. She is now a personal fitness trainer. Her anxiety with food is gone and she can eat anything at all. She just returned from a month long travel around Asia. Her transformation from a person who could only eat white foods to try anything is amazing. Highly recommend treatment with this doctor.

I took my daughter to see Felix for a one off hypnotherapy session to address her fear of foods (Aviodant restrictive food intake disorder) I couldn’t be more pleased with the service he provided. He put us all at ease with his explanations and everything he said made complete sense. At the end of the session my daughter tried several foods that she’d never even touched prior to the session and all this was done without fear as if she’d never had a problem with food! Amazing. I won’t lie and say it’s been a miracle cure for her(you have to want to change and to push yourself and this is where she struggles) but she has added several foods to her safe foods list (even eating turkey, roast potatoes as broccoli this Christmas as opposed to her Turkey dinosaurs and smiley faces for the last 11 years) but it has enabled her to try new foods without the fear that she previously had. Would definitely recommend and we may return for a topup session.

I saw Felix for a session to do with my SED/ARFID. Before my session I was very nervous and didnt know what to expect during the session, I had watched many hours of videos of his before and after treatment on youtube and so I had a pretty good idea of how the session was going to be set up. As soon as we arrived he welcomed us in and instantly put me at ease and didnt just dive straight into treatment. When the treatment started he was professional but not cold and sounded like he genuinely cared about the outcome of the treatment . Once the treatment was over he wanted to prove it had worked and it had, almost like magic 27 years of embedded behaviour was gone in just over an hour. After the treatment I had kept in touch with Felix via the facebook group for SED sufferers and he also gives advice and help when needed on there which is a testament to his attitude towards helping people, Ive not felt like just another patient/ number thats passed through his doors and I would highly recommend him to others seeking help with SED/ARFIDS and even though I cant testify for his other treatments I would still recommend him to anyone wanting help for disorders he treats as I can imagine he is just as professional about these.

We have had a great experience with Felix with regard to my sons eating disorder. He knows exactly what he is talking about and is very approachable.
