I GIVE YOU THE WAND...YOU DO THE MAGIC!
My area of specialisation is anxiety - I have had great success where many others have failed. I believe that all magical therapy comes from the unbreakable bond of trust and belief in the process we both have and feel.I also feel that I am connected to something far greater than me and this instinctively guides me and also allows me to channel positive healing energy into the words I use with every single client.I feel that magic working and its very hard to articulate how, where and why it works all I know is its real and I am blessed that it chooses me as its messenger to heal,inspire and motivate others through the spoken word.
I gained my LIHP way back in 1988 with the Institute of Hypnosis and Parapsychology London. I went on to open my practice which I ran very successfully for 18 months before taking the opportunity to play American football at collegiate level in the USA. I was informed that at that time I was the UK's youngest ever practising Hypnotherapist at age 21.
I was asked to take part in the Millionaire Mindset program along with other successful entrepreneurs in 1998.
I am very honoured to have been appointed as the ambassadeur for the Ethan Maull Up Yours To Cancer Foundation in 2016.I will continue to spread his word and ethos through motivational speaking,fund raising and any other means while I am fit and able to do so.

Life's a funny thing...it's just a big circle..and you often meet people more than once... When I was 17, sitting in Lincoln's Littlewood's Cafe...engrossed in conversation with my friend, I had no idea that many, many years later we would pick up from where we left off! So here I am extolling the virtues of my dear friend of many (too many to count) years and to say a massive 'Thank You' x I've always been cynical about Hypnosis and other 'similar' processes, thinking 'I can't be hypnotised, I can't be treated with all that stuff'. How WRONG I was. I'll 'spare' you the details, but suffice to say that I was struggling with a close bereavement. Using the 'Havening' process with Mark...I can talk positively about a devastating time without breaking down. If it was just this one thing that Mark has helped me with, then I'd be happy...but there's more... Self confidence, weight loss...and so many 'little' things that are 'knock-on' effects from those feelings are now also resolving. I feel like a different person. I realise that's a huge statement, but it's actually true. I understand that initially we think about cost etc., But put things into perspective...how much have you already spent on things that haven't worked? More than you'd probably like to admit. So really, it's a bit of a no-brainer :) I wish I'd done this sooner, but then..that's part of our learning process...we never know what's round 'Life's Corner'. If reading this has made you curious, contact Mark and tell him how you feel, and I guarantee you will feel so much better. Once again, Thanks Marsie..you're a Star. Xx

I work with clients building unbreakable trust and with total conviction that we WILL be SUCCESSFUL and create lasting positive change.I love working with people who come to me as a last resort, often sceptical and then walk away wide eyed and excited at the speed and ease at which hypnotherapy can work its little miracles.
I love working with life changing conditions like lifting trauma and phobias often in just one session but have witnessed amazing success with psoriasis, eczema,self esteem, public speaking, weight loss, nail biting, exam nerves, interview nerves, stress and confidence in the work place, agoraphobia and claustrophobia and relationship issues to name just a few.

My fees are £45 pounds per session which is usually 60-90min and an initial consultation in person or through Skype or phone is free and normally 30min.
One stop sessions do work but put allot of expectation and strain on the therapist and client much better to spread over a program that is much more beneficial and rewarding to both parties and cost effective to. Some charge very large amounts for a 2hr one stop session but ultimately the client should always talk first to the therapist and listen to their instincts and instant gut feelings.
However I take each case on its merit and am far to interested in helping a client turn their life around rather than turn them away because they could not afford me, although when I feel I can help I will always remind them that can they afford not to?
Helping people effect positive lasting change in their lives is a blessing, I love my job it brings me great joy to witness such positive change in those I am blessed to work with.
Come take my hand and lets walk into that wonderful bright light of positivity and healing together... switch off old negative thought process ... rewind and reprogram negative beliefs... so transformed you can once more look at the world with wide eyed wonder and gratitude... as you did before as a child when everyday was full of different possibilities and fun.

I suffer like so many of us nowadays from insecurity, lack of self belief, depression and negativity... But meeting Mark changes all that ! He has the ability to change your out look your thought process and the way you attack each new day, he installs a life change attitude and has made me realise that positivity only adds to my life and negativity takes away... He is an inspirational person that you will be glad you brought into your life.

Sue Rowland Tutor/hypnotherapist
Sue put me forward for a distinction which I did not get....however her awe inspiring words meant more to me than that...a beautiful person inside and out and a great Tutor who really did get the most out of me.
The only way I can describe the last 8 years of my life is like living in a dream world.A lot of my days just filtered into one with me,not being able to remember one day to the next because of my stress levels,everything just rolled into one big mush.
I have been suffering from anxiety and panic attacks, to the point where I couldn't eat new foods or eat in new places from fear of being allergic to something.Even though I am not allergic to anything,driving was a no no.I could not drive down a road that I had driven down a hundred times before,without throwing myself into a panic attack.It had become a way of life for me, a normal way of life to live like this.To run from everything that was familiar and unfamiliar to me.I ended up doing the same thing day in day out just so I was comfortable and not wanting to run away.Sometimes not even being able to cope with these day either!
I had tried different treatments and therapies but only lasted one session on most of them due to panicking and in the end just running away.
So I looked up Hypnotherapy, why not give it a go it took me about a week to find Mark and even longer to email him asking for help.I had got it into my head all sorts of things would go wrong with hypnotherapy.My body and mind had already started to reject this treatment before I had started it!
After talking with Mark on the phone he made me feel so relaxed, that I booked a session with him. Mark was kind enough to come to me as I knew there was no way I would make it to him.With in half an hour of meeting Mark he had all of me relaxed.. It was like I had known him as a very good friend my whole life.
After 4 sessions with Mark I was like a new person. I was going out to new places to eat, foods I had never eaten before and not panicking.Driving to new places on my own like Great Yarmouth, Berry Saint Edmunds and Kettering, thats going down dual carriageways and motorways, which I had never done on my own before with out panicking!
I feel like a new person enjoying life again which I owe to this wonderful man.Mark and the work that he does, just not to be stressed all the time is like having the weight of the world taken off my shoulders and giving me a whole new positive outlook on life.
So I would just like to say a massive thank you to him for just having the time to see me as more of a friend than a therapist which helped me to relax and trust him allot.
Foe other people suffering like I did, just give it a go it really does work.Just take 5 minutes of strength just to call,text or email Mark it will change your life for the better in ways not even I can describe.
Thank you so much Mark I owe you loads for turning my life around.
Thank you Hayley for writing such beautiful and inspiring words...I am humbled and blessed by them...you did the magic I just gave you the wand ;-) X
All I can say Mr Marzipan is I am still buzzing after today.
It was the first time I spoke without nerves, Ethan was definately around us today. And good grief he would have been so proud of you after your speech. You were amazing, inspirational and so interesting to listen to. I don't know anybody including teachers that could hold 600 children's attention for as long as you did, they were all listening in awe at you. If I could hear you daily, it would make me a more positive, happy person. I was proud to be with you xxx
Dawn Foulston Lincoln
I am buzzing!!!...went into 3 places on my own today...chose the small places but made small talk as well!
Think Jim is in shock lol....feel like a heavy weight has lifted.Thank you so much for getting me this far!
Chris is 6 sessions in after developing severe anxiety....she has not left the house on her own in 2 years....3 weeks ago we had a major breakthrough when she took the bin down the drive on her own...she had difficulty making eye contact and could not talk to anyone..answer the door or go anywhere on her own.My eyes are filling with tears of joy and pride as I type this not for me but for her....she is a remarkable lady...taking her life back..I feel so blessed to play a small part in her awesome transformation....GO GIRL!!!
I wanted to write this to firstly say a big thank you to Mark for all his help recently and secondly to pass on my recent experience of working with him.
At the outset I would like to say I am normally a huge sceptic of anything labelled 'alternative therapy'. I also used to be someone with his feet firmly in the 'pull yourself together' camp when it came to mental health issues. However that has changed now, after finding myself on a downward spiral and seeing first hand how difficult, maybe even impossible it is to drag yourself back up without some outside help.
So a bit about myself, i have been a Police Officer for over twenty years and have probably seen everything over that time. Whilst it's an extremely rewarding job, it does take its toll mentally. I have always kept myself fit and I used exercise as a way to keep stress under control. However at the start of the year things unravelled for me. I was suffering what I can only assume were anxiety attacks at work. Things I would do without thinking became huge problems. Visiting members of the public, speaking at meetings even using the phone started to give me issues. I have probably had about half a dozen attacks spread over the last three years. They were not happening regularly but it was the fear of having one that was taking over my life. Before going to see Mark I was thinking I may even have to look for alternative employment, with all the worries that would entail having a young family and mortgage etc.
Anyway, I contacted Mark as a last resort. Mark had been my cycling coach for about a year so i knew him and trusted him. He had told me he was a hypnotherapist during one of our coaching chats and it stuck in my mind. I am not sure if I would have approached anyone else, it was only having built up a relationship with Mark that gave me the confidence to think he could help me.
The sessions I have had with Mark have really turned my life around. I cannot overstate this, I am not talking about a few tweaks around the edges, I am talking about being in the most positive frame of mind of my life. I can see now how the little voice we all have in our heads can really be reprogrammed even after all these years! Mark really understands people and is the most positive person I have ever met. Through our sessions he helped me to see where these negative feelings were coming from and the result is he has given me perspective back on life.
With Marks assistance I could see that my stress levels were turned right up to high and I had stopped connecting with people and life in general. Mark has helped me to find myself again and I have made some changes in my life for the better.
My big worry was that the work I had done with Mark would wear off over time and I would be back to square one at some point. Well so far it has not happened, it has been 8 weeks since I first saw Mark and I sense the change in me is permenant.
I have also recommended Mark to a close relative and he is helping with her weight loss. She hit the nail on the head when she said that this sort of help should be available on the NHS and she wished she had met him years ago.
A big thank you Mark. It's a rare person who is able to make such a profound difference to people's lives.
Stu Jones Northants Police
I heard mark deliver his 'Tick Tock' speech in Lincoln Cathedral his words had a profound effect on me and many others that day....if I ever need a man to lift motivate or help others in need of powerful healing words for me there is no one else in the frame.
Just to say thanks for your inspirational words today, your powerful yet somehow soothing voice brought me and many others to tears...I have never heard anyone talk like you...what you have is a gift that you truly need to share far and wide....Thank you for helping me connect with myself and life again.
Gabby has had a great weekend the best in a long time, any bad thought she has managed to dismiss without any panic attacks or effects on her feelings which is fantastic. She's been really happy singing and playing drums and doing art, she went to church today at Alive in Lincoln for the first time which she found magical
We long for this to continue as I am sure it will
Thanks for your help Abi will we you this Friday with Gabby
4 sessions in with severe OCD which always tracks back to anxiety Gabby was the victim of her amazing imagination now its working for and protecting her with help from her subconcious 2 powerful partners indeed!
Mate, just wanted to tell u I had first real test today in new job. Had a formal interview to do. Was nervous last night and started to worry, but sat for 20mins visualising a great interview, in control etc.
Then today it went really well. Really pleased. First interview was a bit of a hurdle.
Just took deep breaths and thought - gunslinger!
Reflecting back its as if I had fallen over and u put a hand out and helped me back onto my feet saying 'it will be okay stu, dust yourself off and move on'
I was very apprehensive at making the first contact with mark as I didn't really understand hypnotherapy (other than what you see on tv) which it is nothing like!! I had a very bad time in Nov 2013 when my mum got diagnosed with lung cancer at at 61, and passed away in Feb 2014. Within this time I had a break down and was put on every medication you could think of, but none of them worked just caused me more anxiety and distress and weight gain. My break down caused me to be ocd on checking my body for lumps, bumps and marks which caused me to bruise my self more, I couldn't say the word cancer never mind write it, so 10 weeks ago I bite the bullet and made contact with mark and the help and transformation has been fantastic not only do I not check continuously but he's helped with my fear of my head being under water swimming and also my coke cola addiction, and also now we are working on me loosing weight. Mark made me feel at ease the first time I met him he's very caring and passionate about the work he's doing with you. I recommend Mark Marsland 100% to help with any problems you may have so a big thank you mark ? Mark has done more for my well being in 10 weeks than medication did in 2 years !!

Helping Mel lift past trauma,creating miss pattern matching, affecting her in the present was as always a blessing, the best part of which was hearing all about her trip to London,taking the crowded tube and shopping at Xmas with her man,something she dreamed of doing but could never do before.WELL DONE MEL!
Let me treat your PTSD or phobia comfortably and quickly
The Rewind Technique is a tried-and-tested approach to treating PTSD and phobias
For many years, severe anxiety-based conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder or phobias were considered treatable only through long, painful exposure therapy, and in some cases, not at all.
Now, thankfully, we have access to a comfortable, effective treatment that can greatly reduce, and even remove, traumatic or phobic symptoms quickly.
Research results for the Rewind Technique
Although research into the Rewind Technique is still in its infancy, one study [http://www.hgi.org.uk/archive/rewindevidence2.htm] carried out by the Human Givens Institute in the UK showed the following results:
Study size: 30 people
? 40% of clients rated rewind as extremely successful;
? 53% rated it as successful
? 7% rated it as acceptable.
No one rated the Rewind Technique poor or as a failure.
? Prior to rewind, on average clients rated their well being as 12 out of 50.
? Seven to 10 days after treatment, the average score was 30.3 out of 50.
? Three to six months later, the average score was 32.2.
This represents an improvement of 167.4 per cent on their original ratings.
A four-year study carried out within NOVA [http://www.try-nova.org/] (part of the Barnardo’s charity) showed similarly impressive results:
Study size: 47 people, 57% of whom treated with Rewind alone.
? 26 would have met the criteria for PTSD.
? After treatment none of the forty-seven people treated met the criteria for PTSD.
? There was also a significant reduction of all sub symptoms associated with PTSD, five categories had zero reports after treatment.
(Human Given journal Volume 14, No 4- 2007)
The Rewind Technique does not need you to go over the traumatic incident(s) again.
Many people with trauma or phobias have been treated using approaches which drag them back through the experience again; a highly unpleasant thing to have to do.
This does not happen with the Rewind, and I do not in fact even need to know the details of what happened to you.
So if you suffer from PTSD or phobias I think I can help, so please give me a call on 07557 397245 and I can tell you anything else you need to know.

You are the most important part of our team so I will always work late if needed or a Saturday morning to accommodate that.
