In the Daily Mail piece, journalist and skeptic Rebecca Hardy, had a one-to-one session with Adrian and spoke to several happy patients who categorically refuted the claims made by Matt Allwright, the Watchdog presenter who described Adrian as ‘dangerous’
Rebecca Hardy writes in her piece; “Adrian, 43, from Leominster, in Herefordshire, who has been treating horses as well as people for 17 years, doesn't seem particularly dangerous. In fact, he's a rather gentle man who maintains: 'All I do is tuck myself away and try to help people.'”
After the piece was published on Monday in the paper and online, Adrian’s inbox has been inundated with messages of support. Adrian says; ““When the BBC first told me they were featuring me on their programme I was shocked, horrified and numb.
“My lawyer advised me to call in the services of a PR agency and recommended crisis and reputation management specialists, PHA Media.
“PHA Media then arranged for me to be interviewed by the Daily Mail, who carried a fantastic and hugely supportive page lead on me. Since then I have received a staggering 5,000 emails in support of me, attacking the BBC programme and all urging me to carry on my good work.
“Now I have been bombarded with interview requests – even from Spain’s biggest radio station, and the editor of a major UK magazine has asked me if I could help heal her.
“I can’t thank PHA Media enough for running such an effective public relations campaign.”
Phil Taylor, Senior Consultant at PHA Media who represents Adrian says; “It has been a joy to work with Adrian and to turn this crisis situation in to wonderfully positive PR. We will now be working with Adrian on an ongoing basis to continue to highlight all the amazing case studies that his work generates and to respond to the many interview requests he has coming in.”
