My background is General Management. For many years I faced the fears, such as making a presentation or speaking in public, dealing with stressful situations and suffering the effects of stress without knowing what it was and what caused it.
I have been married for over 40 years with two adult children who are also Hypnotherapists, one living in Perth Australia and one on the French Riviera near Bandol.
My interest in Hypnotherapy began after my wife Lorna visited a Hypnotherapist to deal with an issue and the change was remarkable if not astonishing.
Lorna would be happy to talk to you face to face about how she benefited from Hypnotherapy.
I was born in Kirkcaldy in the county of Fife, Scotland and we relocated to Warwickshire for career progression in 1989 and we absolutely love living here.
About me now
I have been a certified Hypnotherapist for many years and have helped many clients make major positive changes to their lives. Working with people to overcome debilitating issues gives a great deal of "job" satisfaction. Much better than chasing sales or profit targets for an employer. Some of these issues are listed next and include but not limited too, Agoraphobia, Anorexia, Alcohol Abuse, Anger, Anxiety, Bereavement,Blushing,Bruxism or Teeth Grinding, Confidence, Drug Problems, Depression, Emotional Issues, E.D. (Erectile Dysfunction) Exam Nerves,,Fears, Fear of Flying, IBS, OCD, Panic Attacks, Phobias, PTSD, Public Speaking, Presentation Skills, Smoking, Self Control, Self Esteem, Sexual Issues, Weight loss including "Hypnotic Gastric Band", to name but a few.
I specialise on some issues, call me for details. Essential/Action Tremors is one example of my chosen areas of specialism.
If you suffer from PTSD (Diagnosed by doctor) and are or have been in military service and or emergency services then visit my web site for details of FREE treatment for PTSD only.
My interest is now focused on helping people overcome those debilitating issues that make life difficult and helping people make significant changes to improve their life and health. Training others to do the same, here and overseas to help people is a major part of my life.I operate from a nice quiet market town location and provide a bespoke treatment service. Private off road parking is available.

What is Hypnosis?
We all go into a trance like state every day. Remember the car journey you forgot to remember.How did I get here? Your sub-conscious took over! Sometimes we refer to this state as being on "auto pilot", when in fact you have been in a trance-like state and immediately snap out of it if something untoward happens. Hypnosis can be traced back to the ancient Babylonians, Greeks and Egyptians and is named after the Greek word for sleep - Hypnos. In Hypnosis sleep does not mean the same as we understand our bedtime sleep to be.A good way to think of Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation and focus.You are in control not the Hypnotist. As you can go into this trance state, so you can come out of it whenever you want. When your conscious mind relaxes and becomes detached from everyday worries, then your subconscious mind can commence doing its wonderful work in its own wonderful way,free from interuptions and sabotage from your conscious mind. This relaxed state is known as trance.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
"Essential" or "Action" Tremors If you have this debilitating issue, then you could consider Hypnotherapy to help you resolve it and get your life back on track. I understand how this affects you and how it limits your ability to do "normal" everyday things.Give me a call and we can chat it through without any obligation to proceed further.
OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder I have many years of experience dealing with this issue. No need to continue living your life with this difficulty. If you can change your mind you can change your life. Call me and have a chat, no obligation on either party.
Insomnia What is preventing you from sleeping? There is nothing to beat a good nights sleep and with some help you could be resting peacefully for as long as you wish. Call me for a no obligation chat.
Low Self Esteem and/or Low Self Worth. Do you stay at home?. Have you almost stopped socialising or do you avoid meeting friends?. Do you feel you do not deserve something? Do you feel you are not worthy?
Panic Attacks. Do you fear something and flip out on occasions? Do you avoid doing something?
Your friends do not understand. You don't know why. However I do understand and can help you find the cause.
Weight Reduction and Weight Management Every person has the potential to be the size the would like to be. What is it that causes you to eat so much? What is it that prevents you from making a significant change? Have you been on many diets and "failed"?. Hypnosis can help you uncover the cause and then help you change your relationship with food and eating.
Smoking There are only two types of people who smoke, the poor and the stupid! A bit tongue in cheek but perhaps worth thinking about.
No one needs to smoke anymore than you need to learn how to shoe horses, we are in the 21st century and health warnings fly at us from every direction and yet you still smoke, ask yourself WHY?
Who taught you to smoke?
Did you watch a parent smoke or a brother or sister or friends at school and you thought they looked cool and then you decided you wanted to look cool?
Smoking is a learned behaviour and if your subconscious can learn to smoke it can learn to do something else other than smoking.Using the power of your own subconscious mind it can be possible for you to change your habit quite easily, providing you really want too!
One thing we cannot do is make you want to stop smoking, only you can make that decision and when you have made that decision, give me a call.

My fees vary according to the time and day of the week so for clarity they are listed here.
If you would like to meet me and have a chat before deciding then a consultation of 30 minutes is available for a nominal sum of only £20.00. Contact me to arrange this.
For every session I request a Non Refundable deposit of £50.00 and if you are serious about obtaining treatment this will not be an issue. Let me explain the reason I introduced this element. People were making appointments and then changed their mind and did not attend. However they did not inform me, thus I lost that appointment slot and my income. This reduces my exposure and I do hope you understand my reason.
Fees: Mon - Fri from 10.00 until 16.30 £150.00 per session
Fees: Mon - Fri from 18.30 until 21.30 £175.00 per session
Fees: Saturday from 10.00 until 16.30 £200.00 per session
Fees for my Stop Smoking session are £350.00 any time
Sunday there are no appointments available.
The payment system works on this process. I reserve provisionally your time and then send you an electronic invoice for your non-refundable deposit which I request is paid within 24 hours. Once payment is received I will confirm your appointment by e mail or telephone. I ask you to bring the balance with you in cash. Subsequent appointments follow the same process, although you may, if you wish bring the next session deposit with you.
If I cancel the appointment your money will be refunded in full or transferred if we are re-scheduling.
If you buy cheap you may well buy at least twice.
Before you choose a therapist or training provider please take the time to research and read reviews from past clients and students. Your time will not be wasted in doing this.
Training fees are on my website.
Payment can be cash,bank transfer or Paypal using a credit card.
