About me

Hello, I am Colin Jones a fully qualified hypnotherapist and counsellor with 20 years experience of helping people be healthier, happier and quit unwanted thoughts, habits and feelings.

What is hypnosis and why come to me?
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind, sometimes mistakenly thought of as sleep, being unconscious or losing control. Modern hypnosis is about focused awareness on your specific goal or desire and then you allowing me to help you get the right mind set to deal with anything that blocks you from achieving this goal.

So I will actively teach you skills and techniques that are based on a transparent and common sense treatment methods that enable you to take responsibility and control of yourself and your life so you can cope and even master old unwanted feelings, habits and attitudes.

No matter how far you've gone what matters is where you are going. Often your whole attitude and outlook upon life will change and you will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle.

You will achieve your potential and enhance confidence

I have a particular specialism in coaching for performance; whether it's for passing that test, exam, auditions, public performance, job interview or any situation where you need to be the best you can be- easily, naturally at your best.

I am expert in addiction, working as a smoking cessation counsellor and in substance misuse field for over two decades in the in NHS and specialist centres in London and the South West. I have extensive training in addiction from London University and the Maudsley Hospital. Whether you are struggling with quitting smoking or feel stuck and vulnerable to lapse, I can help.

Outside of this specialist area, I work with a broad range of issues and concerns to help you get where you want to helping you achieve:

  • Continual and quality sleep
  • Higher levels of energy and motivation

  • Greater self esteem

  • Performance enhancement

  • Appetite control

  • Freedom from phobias

  • Freedom from smoking and addictive habits

  • Healthy lifestyle choices

  • Memory and concentration skills

My life prior to training in the helping profession centered on my work as actor and performer. This serves me well today when helping people that are looking to feel more confident and relaxed. You know we can all suffer from nerves and fears, be it at social situations, public speaking or performing engagements. I know how to help people be on top of their game for that all important interview, audition, or to pass that test and exam. Relaxation, expectation and confidence is key when addressing these any other situations where perhaps phobias and fears can 'live rent free' like unwanted guests, in our heads.

How I work as a hypnotherapist
I trained with Adam Eason School of clinical hypnosis in Bournemouth. I choose Adam's school because he offers the most comprehensive training available, plus he has a great sense of humour and passion for his work that is delivers with an ethical professionalism that can be sadly lacking in this field. Adam has been a professional hypnotherapist for over 20 years and he brings a wealth of clinical experience and skills to his training. He speaks openly about his earlier methods which focused on the unconscious mind and as yet unproven nlp methods and how he now draws on proven techniques of cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy. Quite simply CBH draws on the best of interventions and in hypnosis amplifies newly corrected thoughts and habits and positive self talk.

So, hypnosis can help you to pass that test, exam, auditions, job interview; or for situations where you might be suffering from fears, phobias or unwanted habits like overeating or smoking.This is because I use evidenced based methods that are proven to work for your concerns. I work with helping you achieve deep refreshing sleep rather than insomnia; stress relief and pain management; anxiety control, or for lifting the fog of depression. Or maybe you just need a boost when you need to be at your best. Or maybe you would like to treat yourself to a relaxing mind massage or mindfulness session and have that wonderful sense of just letting go and being in the present moment.

Please do call me for a free telephone consultation or if you need know anything else.

Thank you and best wishes.
