Welcome and thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
Ask yourself what is preventing you from resolving issues, holding you back from leading a more fulfilling, satisfying and healthier life ??
I can help drop that unwanted behaviour, remove that addiction or fear, improve that performance and achieve that dream.
Your desire and commitment is ALL that is required to achieve fantastic RESULTS.
Change will involve utilising rapid techniques and need not take months or years for effective results.
Whether you're wanting to make a few adjustments to an already contented life, or are in desperate need of help, my aim is to facilitate your full recovery in the very shortest period of time, empowering you to live your life to its greatest potential – the life you deserve to lead.
It is important to remember that however much you may be suffering, what you are experiencing is a sequence of negative events locked in a particular moment in time. With help, this period will pass.
My first consideration will always be the confidentiality of our client therapist relationship, your welfare, safety and comfort. Your first treatment session will be, first and foremost, unique to you and will begin the process whereby you start to re-frame the problem and to circumvent whatever blockages are preventing you from leading a normal and happy life.
I offer an understanding, non-judgemental, empathetic approach to therapy and, most importantly, I believe in your ability to make the changes you desire.
With me you will make lasting changes as quickly as possible so that you can live the life you want and achieve your dreams!

Weight Loss / Eating Disorders- with Hypnotherapy -
Emotional eating can and does sabotage any attempt at weight loss .
If you want to change your body ...you have to change your mind ......
How you think , determines what you eat .Everything we do comes from a thought , unconscious or conscious
Most of our habits and behaviours, including eating habits ,are formed in our subconscious mind .
From an early age , you learn that if you cry , you get fed ....... if you fall over or do well , you are rewarded maybe with a biscuit or treat ..... food becomes a comfort , an eating pattern which makes you feel better . Diets have been around for 70 years and the population is getting more overweight than ever, what does that say about diets ??. Diabetes is now at record numbers , why ?
In order to successfully lose weight and remain slim, you have to change your thought process with food .
Change your mind with Weight Loss Hypnotherapy , think more and eat less .Experience the fantastic results now , chose a healthier , slimmer you !!!
Call me 07825 599340 for a free, no - obligation consultation .
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnotherapy is safe, natural and feels wonderful.
You are aware of what is going on at all times and are always in control. Relaxation, self hypnosis, regression, visualisation and imagery are some of the many tools I may use to help you.
There may be an aspect of your life you want to change but something stops you or sabotages your intentions and you wonder why. This is typical of an inner conflict at a subconscious level for which hypnotherapy is very effective. As your hypnotherapist, I help you access the infinite resources of your subconscious mind, in order to bring about the therapeutic changes your desire.
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 interruptions and sabotage from your conscious mind. This relaxed state is known as trance.
Research has shown that our unconscious mind makes 90% of our decisions and that behaviours are established at a very young age. The unconscious mind's primary function is to protect us. However, behaviours learned at a young age are not always helpful in dealing with issues that we face as adults. Although our conscious mind knows how to deal with situations rationally, the unconscious mind which is the driving force, can create a raft of limiting and unhelpful behaviours because of early programming. Life changes, and so can you!
If you're not sure, just pick up the phone and have a no obligation chat before you decide. Please call

"I had smoked cigarettes since my late teens. I did not think that I could ever give up smoking. I was conscious that I was missing out on activities with my friends. Precluded from going inside anywhere. So, whilst in Lanzarote I contacted Stuart Downing to arrange a consultation. I thought that I would give hypnotherapy a try. Much to my amazement it worked. For the first 3 days I had longings for a cigarette every now and then but would use Stuart's technique to combat those feelings. All my friends are also suitably amazed that Stuart in their eyes has performed an absolute miracle and there is a queue forming to follow in my footsteps – for once! So after smoking for 47 years, I am now an ex-smoker. Have no aching muscles and I feel 5 years younger." Liz K March 2016
"Having seen the success that Stuart Downing achieved with a friend in Lanzarote. I decided to book an appointment. One session later and I have been smoke-free for over 2 weeks with minimal cravings. I feel confident that this is for good. Thanks a million. Jackie" March 2016
"As a 20 year smoker, a session with Stuart gave me the additional tools and willpower to finally stop. I have to say that the work we did together has enabled me to adopt a significantly healthier lifestyle. I have recommended Stuart to several friends and have had nothing but positive feedback.

New client testimonial May 2016
"After my sessions with Stuart, what I can say is how it's changed my life, for someone who has been suffering from anxiety for some time now, it was affecting my social life and relationships, having a constant fear of being in places or going out where I felt I didn't have control, I would always drive so I could escape when I needed to, I would plan the route I was going before leaving the home, even days before going out, social anxiety was taking control.I suffer from MS and have 18 food intolerances, so I had so many other things I couldn't control this I needed back.I didn't want to taking pills for anxiety so I searched online for a qualified hypnotherapist and came across Stuart.
My first session was very relaxed, I did get upset and cried, but that's normal I guess, let out a lot of emotions, how I had been feeling, and was then sat down and helped to relax, Stuart then did his work, spoke to me, I felt so deeply relaxed, I could hear him talking softly, and I drifted of with my own thoughts, he carried on talking.When I awoke I felt very alert, and a little nervous as I thought oh what if I think or talk to people about why I got hypnotised it would come back, well it didn't Every time I would be in a situation that would normally make me nervous it was like the feeling of talking to somebody and forgetting what it was I was saying, and something else would pop into my head, like food shopping or a holiday.As the weeks went on I didn't test myself and just carried on as normal, going out, no car, other people driving, social events and the next day I would think wow I did that..I cannot thank Stuart enough and I recommend all my friends and family who also suffer with some type of anxiety to see him.... He gave me my life back "
