About me

Offering you a discreet friendly service in professional surroundings since 1990, with very few clients I have not been able to help. Based 2 miles from Chorlton by the river at Salford Quays. Most sessions recorded.

My name is Costa Lambrias and I am the Principal of the Academy of Holistic Hypnotherapy. I qualified as a clinical hypnotherapist in 1990 and since then have been fortunate to have helped thousands of local, national and international clients from my stress management and hypnotherapy practice on Chorlton’s main Wilbraham Road (now based 2 miles north at brand new offices in Salford Quays). I have also appeared regularly on national and local TV and radio, and in newspapers and magazines, promoting the ethical use of Hypnotherapy. In 2003 I was awarded the accolade one of the 10 leading hypnotherapists in Britain by the Independent on Sunday (23.03.03).

As a healer for over 43 years and a therapist/trainer for over 23 years, one of my greatest passions is Quality of Life. Because of deep and meaningful spiritual experiences that I have been fortunate to have throughout my adult life, I firmly believe that each one of us has an undeniable right to Happiness. However, negative programming, bad parenting, abuse or a generally “crap” childhood can damage our self-esteem and affect the way we respond to life and its challenges. Because of this I devised and pioneered in the UK in the early 1990s my It’s Never too Late to Have a Happy Childhood!inner child therapy, which is essentially a very powerful therapy utilising Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Analysis to reverse negative conditioning, etc and heal the client’s childhood permanently in less than a dozen sessions. With increased self-esteem and love for oneself, recipients of this therapy are able to attract more positive relationships and outcomes into their life as they now feel worthy of enjoying all the good things in life. I have been fortunate to present at Conferences around the world and to teach my inner child therapy, my Time Line Realignment™ process, and also Soul Retrieval therapy to thousands of other hypno- and psycho-therapists around the UK and as far abroad as Australia and New Zealand. And with the anticipated publication in 2014 of my book Human Doing & Human Being I hope to make a better quality of life accessible to many more people.

As the UK’s Self-Esteem Doctor® my philosophy is simple: once health and basic needs are met, the quality of your life, and your enjoyment of everything you have in your life, is governed by your level of self-esteem. Whether you are seeking security and parity in your relationships and a release from self-doubts and negative conditioning, or looking to improve what you already do well, there is now no longer a reason to let a lack of self-belief hold you back in your personal or professional life when these issues can be resolved so easily!

Training, qualifications & experience


What do these qualifications mean?

D.Hyp. Diploma of Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy

F.I.H.P. Fellow of the Institute of Hypnosis & Parapsychology

In 1998 Costa co-founded the Hypnotherapy Association, the UK’s largest independent organisation for professional hypnotherapists with over 400 members. In the UK there is no legislation to control hypnotherapy. This unfortunately means that, similarly to other professions, there is a proliferation of untrained or poorly trained so-called hypnotherapists who offer hypnotherapy with little or no skills or experience. The HA’s stringent criteria for members and their minimum standards for accreditation of training schools ensure a safe, ethical and professional experience for the paying public, whether as clients or students of hypnotherapy. Costa is a former Chairman and Professional Standards Officer of the HA and serves on the management committee as its current Secretary.

Further information

Did you know?...

Hypnotherapy is ideal for all Performance situations requiring confidence, whether on stage, socially, sexually or in Sports or Sales. I have been able to help many actors, singers, musicians and songwriters, athletes, boxers, golfers and footballers improve their performance, in addition to hundreds of clients who would feel anxious or blush whenever they found themselves the focus of attention, socially or at work.

I also work with companies to increase Performance levels in staff - this can vary from social workers to Sales (e.g. Recruitment). It's a small investment when the payoffs in increased performance, loyalty and attendance are taken into account. Ask about my Inspiration, Motivation & Success workshops.
