Having Difficulty Choosing the Right Hypnotherapist? -
Book a Free 30 Minute Consultation and Make an Informed Decision...
It can be daunting choosing the right hypnotherapist
It's vitally important your hypnotherapist understands your problem...
Maybe the first hypnotherapist you looked at had detailed articles describing how he or she works with your problem, but then so do the others.
Perhaps after you’ve reviewed what a hypnotherapist says about your problem, you could listen to the audio recordings they provide. But what if you still want more?
And what about the hypnotherapist you liked the look of? He doesn’t talk about your problem, but he seems like someone you could trust and the things he says make complete sense to you.
So perhaps you could telephone all the hypnotherapists in your area, and try to guess from your conversation which one is right for you, but that could be a challenge, and you probably won’t get all the answers you’re looking for.
So how can you make an informed choice about which hypnotherapist to choose?
What I’ve found over the years, is that many people will choose a hypnotherapist based upon personal recommendations from a friend, a colleague or another professional.
Having a recommendation makes it easier to make a choice.
But what if there’s no-one else to help you make that choice?
That’s why it’s vitally important that you’re offered a free consultation - to help you make an informed decision...
The evaluation consultation that I provide is an opportunity for you and I to get to know each other a little, find out about each other and see if there’s some way I can help you.
During the session, either over the phone, or in person, I’ll take detailed notes of the problem that you’ve been experiencing. Finding out exactly where and when you experience the problem, and how the problem shows itself, and then I’ll help you define the solution that solves your problems.
Once I have a detailed understanding of your complete situation, I’ll put together specific recommendations for your hypnotic treatment, and if you choose, give you a brief experience of a trance state, so that you can fully evaluate whether the solution being offered is something that you’d like to explore more.
Now although most people would agree that hypnotherapy can be a relaxing and deeply enjoyable experience, it doesn’t necessarily suit everyone, and so at the end of the evaluation, you’re free to leave with absolutely no obligation.
If at a later date you decide to go ahead with the recommended treatment, then you can simply contact me and we can meet up again.
It’s your choice. You have complete control
And if this sounds like something that could interest you, then you can take the fear out of choosing the right hypnotherapist and book a free consultation today.

Here's what others have to say:
“I was suffering with anxiety and finding it hard to go to work and function normally. My dad said he thought there was an underlying problem because I'd had similar thoughts and problems before, and I just know for me that there was something deeper going on.
But then I kept thinking, oh I've got children and they'll need something, or I'll need to spend the money on something else. I don't know if it's mothers, but I just kept thinking I can't afford to invest in myself, but actually of course, if I'm not happy then that's not good for my kids anyway, so finally it all came to a head and I realised that I had to invest in myself, to get a better quality of life for my children.
After the session I felt like there was a sense of freedom and understanding. I think when you understand something it becomes less frightening. It's like being frightened of something in the cupboard, and then when you open the cupboard, actually the thing you were frightened of was not as bad as you thought, you can cope with it and handle it, and it makes things a lot easier.
Nowadays I feel very positive pretty much all of the time. My friends can't believe it, they're like “wow!” I always felt frightened before, like something bad was going to happen, but I just don't feel like that anymore, I'm a lot more relaxed. I'm a lot more positive, and I feel like I can handle just about everything. There are lots of positive things in life.
So thank you.”
"I’d always thought I’d be able to stop smoking on my own. But whenever I tried to give up, I just started again. It was about then when I realized I had no will power.
But then a friend of mine suggested hypnotherapy and I decided to explore that option. I was having a look on the internet, just doing a general search, and you were quite close by to where I live. I liked the layout of your website, and how it was all detailed, and so I gave you a call to pursue it further.
I had no expectations of what it was really going to entail, what the object was. But you made me feel at ease straight away, and I just felt very comfortable, and reassured.
You explained everything, there was no pressure to do anything that I didn’t want to do, I knew every step that we were going towards, what it was going to entail, and I felt very good about the whole session.
Once you left I felt really positive, and I felt really good, and the main benefit is that I stopped smoking and with no temptation at all, I didn’t even think about it. It’s given me a little bit of a confidence boost knowing that I can do it, I feel more positive, and I’ve noticed that there’s been more of a spring in my step so to speak.
So yes, I’d absolutely recommend you. I’ve got a friend at the weekend she was asking me loads of questions about it, and I said I’ve got the number if you want to go down that road. I’m definitely spreading the word.
So thank you. It’s brilliant, I still can’t quite get over the fact that I used to stand outside in the rain, and now I’m here, and it’s a whole different me. It’s good.
Thank you so much again Paul. I appreciate it. Thank you."
"I had a bit of a problem with eating chocolate bars. I’d see a vending machine and just couldn’t stop myself, and probably through a mix of embarrassment, and a feeling that someone else probably wouldn’t be able to help me do something about it, I kept it a secret for years.
After a while I decided to try and get some help. I looked at a couple of websites, and just went with my gut feeling. I don’t want to big you up too much, but I saw your picture, and I thought you looked like a friendly guy. I felt that it was right. You’ve got a friendly face.
Straight away you put me at ease and made me feel that there shouldn’t be any embarrassment attached to that sort of thing.
What I liked the most is that it actually didn’t feel like a lot of effort. It was like all the hard work had already been done, if that makes sense.
After our session, it was a complete success. I just don’t have that urge anymore. It’s not there. And I’m completely free of it now. What I like the most is just having some control back in my life.
So I would absolutely recommend you because it worked for me and I think it could work for other people too."
“Personally I'd just like to say I would definitely recommend Paul.
I used to get really nervous having to stand up in front of people and say my name.
It wasn't necessarily standing up in front of people, because I don't actually feel nervous about that, once I'm stood there I'm fine.
My issue was I'd get stuck saying my name, which then just escalated.
I'd get nervous, and the more nervous I got the more I stuttered, the more I stuttered, the more nervous I got.
I would end up feeling really uncomfortable, and because I've had all those feelings in the past, that is what I would focus on, and I'd let myself get really stressed out.
So avoidance for me became such a big thing.
I went for an interview once and I was just about to sign all the paperwork when I found out that I would have to introduce myself to the team, like the whole office on Monday morning, and because of that I decided not to take the job.
So I contacted Paul because I just couldn't carry on. I was worrying about an event where I had to speak up and say my name that wasn't going to be happening for six months, eight months or even a year, and life's just too short to be worrying about things that haven't happened yet.
So hypnotherapy with Paul has changed my life.
As a result I had this presentation recently and actually felt confident standing up and saying my name.
I did still feel a little bit nervous the night before, but I think everybody feels that, it's just one of those things, even if you're the best speaker in the world.
But I didn't feel the normal panic, I didn't feel the “oh my god I'm going to be sick”, I didn't feel I couldn't sleep the night before. I actually thought: “Oo, I get to stand up in front of everybody and let them know my name. This is actually exciting, people are going to get to know who I am”, and as soon as I did it, I was absolutely fine.
So I would say: don't be afraid to try something new, as far as I'm concerned it's changed my life, and I highly recommend people trying this and giving it a go.”
“I had a problem with blushing. I'd go red at inappropriate times which would then cause me to feel inferior and stupid.
So let's say in a staff meeting, even before someone directs their attention to me, it's like my heart would go like the clappers, I'd think oh god, oh god, what if they talk to me, what if they say my name? Oh god they're all looking at me, they've mentioned my name. Oh no I'm going red.
And that is what it was like. It was an automatic response. I'd get into a complete panic.
Silly things would cause me to blush: People higher up talking to me across a room, or if I had two people looking at me and another person talking to me. People asking me questions in meetings, if my name got mentioned or if someone I sat next to was speaking and people were looking in my direction.
So I'd had enough really. I got to the point where it was interfering with my work life.
So I spoke to my boyfriend. He told me about you, that you were a down to earth guy and easy to talk to, so I booked a session.
Even the first time that I met you, you were very easy to talk to. Normally I don't talk to people without blushing because I feel a bit stupid, but with you it was very easy, I didn't feel judged, I didn't feel like I was stupid at all.
Since then, in the last few weeks it's like something completely new has happened. I don't know where it's come from, but I've noticed when I'm in a situation where I would have thought “Oh god I'm going to go red”, something in my brain kicks in, it's like I'm aware of what I'm thinking, I tell myself to take a deep breath, that I'm ok and I can change it.
It's like yesterday I had a staff meeting with a group of other people, and when I got in there, the lady said to me, oh you can do this and I just relaxed. I didn't go into panic mode. I didn't go red at all, not one little bit.
It's really strange, and it's literally happened in the last few weeks. I'm aware of what I'm thinking. I'm relaxed.
It's a great feeling.
So I'd like to thank you. Thank you very much, it's been a great help.”
Confidence / Anger:
“When I came to see Paul I felt quite desperate. Years of life's events had taken its toll and I just felt I'd reached a point where I couldn't cope anymore.
I had relationship problems with my daughter and my partner. I think things had been going wrong for years, but lack of confidence and constantly beating myself up has had a huge effect on me.
It was like I didn't feel worthy of being able to go out there and get what I want. I felt I didn't deserve to be happy or to have success.
I'd had several occasions with Pete that had not been good. Silly things he did had triggered a response in me that I didn't recognise as me, I'd become very angry, and have outbursts of shouting, but I was convinced that it wasn't him that was making me unhappy, it was me.
But underneath it all there was this huge lack of confidence as well as a lot of paranoia that everybody was talking about me, and not in a nice way. I thought nobody liked me, especially Pete's friends.
So I went to see a counsellor, and she helped me off load quite a bit, which helped a lot, but then after a while I felt I wasn't really resolving my issues as I still had this paranoia around me.
I felt scared of everything and really self conscious and I didn't have the ability to just go out there and try and do something different.
I wanted to be the person that I know I am deep inside, but instead I seemed to be this person who had no confidence, really scared of everything, paranoid about what anyone thought of her. It was becoming a big problem.
So then I thought I would try something different. I found your website, liked the idea of a trial session, so I thought I'd get in contact with you.
I felt different from the very first session. I couldn't quite pinpoint how, but I felt different, and after the first session I was able to sit down with Pete and talk to him in a more rational tone and manner and explain what he had done. He seemed to understand where I was coming from, and he was able to respond without me getting upset, probably for the first time in three years to be honest, so I was really pleased.
After the second time I just felt really happy, calm, comfortable, and then after our last session, it all just seemed to make sense, I understood why I got angry, what was making me angry.
You also helped me to understand that I don't need to carry that around with me. I can step outside of it and move away from it.
I think it's also taught me not to be afraid to ask questions, and sit down and say look I'm not very happy at the moment, let's talk.
Which is totally different, I used to bottle things up completely, and I think this is probably another reason why I was coming out with these outbursts of temper.
But after the sessions I just feel so much more in control of me. I think that's how I would sum it up. I feel in control of what I'm doing and what I want to do.
I just wish I'd done this a long time ago and I would certainly recommend you.”
“I approached Paul because I felt I had no control over my own life.
My Biggest issue was I felt like I could not move forward with my life because I always put things off.
I felt like I had a massive blockage and although I had great ideas and I was full of motivation at the time, I always seemed to stop mid flow and put everything off until another day. This was starting to affect all areas of my life including my relationship with my girlfriend. It was becoming unmanageable.
After just one coaching session with Paul he helped me see things in a completely different way. He brought me from a place of fear and procrastination to a place of being able to do the things I had always put off. The fear has gone and I feel completely invigorated. I feel I have so many more opportunities and I know it sounds cliché, but I am finally master of my own destiny.”
“I went to see Paul the day before my driving test. I was feeling so nervous I was worried that I would mess up as would be too jittery.
Paul was great, he worked his magic on me and after the session I felt really positive and completely calm about the test. Any nerves I had just helped to sharpen me up and I was able to keep my cool.
I am delighted to say I passed my Driving test and I am so happy. Freedom at Last! Thanks Paul, I am amazed at how you managed to turn me from a jittery mess into a calm and collected, positive happy driver.
You're the best!”
