a few quotes about Christopher:
'This man certainly practises what he preaches. If recent events illustrate the creeping sickness pervading our world, perhaps he is among the few who not only have a rare insight into reversing the decline but possess a profound conviction that the prognosis is good. ' Jenni Ameghino, The Birmingham Post
'Christopher is one of life's true teachers. Christopher is a true genius who can lead us to a new enlightenment as well as a state of vibrant health.'

and his encouragement to patients to look after and heal themselves.'
'Hansard has an extraordinary healing gift' Kathy Phillips, The Evening Standard
'Christopher unblocked the pain of the rape which I'd buried along with a lifetime of lesser unresolved hurts. I began to see that my life had somehow got out of balance, that I was frightened of my own emotions, that something inside had become disconnected and this was my chance to do something about it-to gain rather than lose from a terrible act of violation.' Fliss Coombs, The Daily Telegraph
'Now, don't all rush. Hansard's gentle, holistic approach might just be the ticket.'
