My fees are £45 per session. A session is usually 1 hour, the first session will usually last for 90 minutes.

Although I try to stay as close to an hour as possible to help us both manage our time, if we need a few more minutes to really get the most from our time together then we will. Getting the result that you want is the most important thing - not clock watching.

I accept payment by cash, cheque, Visa, Mastercard and most debit cards.

Working with anxiety. September 2016

I had issues with anxiety following several traumatic events. Tony couldn’t have been easier to speak with openly, I felt very much at ease with Tony and he explained everything , involved me in the treatment plan and assessed my anxiety levels accordingly. The hypnotherapy sessions themselves were enjoyable and very effective indeed.

After my initial , in depth session I felt imbued with a lasting calmness and like my old self straight away.

I had a further session with Tony at my insistence as even though I felt much calmer, I wanted to ensure the anxiety didn’t return. I also very much enjoyed the hypnotherapy sessions with Tony. I have been hypnotised twice before, which I also enjoyed, but I did feel Tony is the most caring, thorough and professional therapist I have seen, hence the actual hypnotherapy was much more effective.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Tony Leake to anyone experiencing emotional or stressful issues, my treatment with Tony was extremely positive and effective.


Dealing with anxiety and learning to live again. August 2016

Background: I had suffered with anxiety, low confidence and self esteem for many years. I had many different therapies with varying degrees of success. However, I still felt ‘stuck’ and unable to move forward with my life. A friend recommended Tony and I began hypnotherapy with some trepidation and skepticism.

What I learnt: I learnt to trust a complete stranger. I learnt that it’s OK to be vulnerable. I learnt to stop, relax properly and challenge the internal negative mental chatter. I learnt that I have the skills I need, I had just forgotten how to use them. I learnt to think that ‘I CAN’ rather than ‘I can’t’.

The result: Tony has given me the metaphorical ‘wheels’ to move forward with my life and I actually feel excited about my future; something I’ve not felt for many years. I’ve boarded a train, been to a University reunion, and booked a holiday; all things I would never have contemplated before hypnotherapy.

About Tony: Tony is someone with a genuine and clear-cut desire to help people. I can spout off positive adjectives ’till the cows come home, but the greatest impact he has had on my life is that he has given me the tools to really ‘live’ again.

So Tony, thank you doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface…Alaska next!

Learning to deal with negative thoughts. April 2016

In the past I’ve been suffering with low confidence and anxiety for some years. The main symptoms were felt during a working day or the run up to the start of the working week.

I first met with Tony after speaking to him at a Networking event, he was easily approachable, easy to talk too and it was soon clear that I could speak to him in confidence about the problems I experienced.

I was quite surprised at how much better I felt even after one session with Tony. I came away with a good understanding of how to relax and most importantly to me, the ability to pass negative thoughts and think clearly. One of my favorite sessions was understanding my subconscious thought process and how to see situations from a 3rd person perspective.

Tony is a wonderfully kind and caring person and this is reflected in the way I feel following my sessions with him. I am pleased to say I am able to handle my anxiety well but I know should I need any further assistance Tony will be my first contact.

Anxiety, depression and panic attacks. May 2016

I suffered with depression, panic attacks and a very embarrassing phobia. I decided to try something different, not knowing much about hypnotherapy. Tony helped me see depression and anxiety from a different perspective and helped me control it, instead of it controlling me.

Tony is an understanding and compassionate person. I loved how relaxed the environment was, making me feel at ease to discuss personal things.

If you are reading this don’t let your problems whatever it may be eat away at you, I was one of those people. You have nothing to lose and I promise you you will not be disappointed.

Thank you for everything Tony

Dealing with a fear of the dentist and overcoming the need to have sedation. April 2016

Thank you sooooo much!!

I listened to the relaxation cd an hour before the appointment and I was so calm. I didn’t lose my breath, panic or even feel scared. I sat in the chair without gripping the sides and even laid back in it much more easily… it was still a bit scary that bit, but I thought of my calm place and that worked.

……… finally he would take of the temporary and fix the permanent crown which can be with or without sedation, but judging by today I would be able to manage that without.

…….. At the end after all that he needed to take my blood pressure and I was expecting it to be through the roof as it normally is in a doctor’s office… white coat syndrome they call it. Anyway it was marginally up on my relaxed pressure at home in bed… after all the dentist stuff as well. Boy did your stuff really work for me!!!

[My husband] was well impressed with my whole calm manner and has never seen it before in this situation.

Ms H – Derbyshire

I became a hypnotherapist as a result of being a client and becoming fascinated by the mind and the process of change.

Prior to becoming a therapist I have had successful careers in telecommunications, recruitment and IT from the ground floor to Director level. The life experience that I have gained and the challenges that I've overcome along the way gives me a great set of tools to help me to understand people and to help them to find the answers that they are looking for.
