Hypnotherapy is about helping people to make positive mental and behavioural changes in their lives. The human mind is highly flexible and under hypnosis it can be instructed to shift and change deep-seated attitudes, fears, addictions, anxieties and behaviours.
Hypnosis does not take control of you but, instead, shows you how to take control of yourself.
During hypnosis you will enjoy deep, enjoyable relaxation and find the impulse to change your life for the better, whether that be losing weight, giving up smoking or tackling anxiety, depression or other problems.
I am an experienced, Worcestershire-based hypnotherapist recognised as a Senior Practitioner by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council. I am also registered with The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.

I am able take bookings on weekdays and Saturday mornings. I welcome enquiries from people who just want to chat about their problems with no commitment over the phone and decide for themselves whether hypnotherapy might be right for them. Clients do not have to commit to any extended course of sessions but I allow them to decide for themselves what they require. I welcome clients who wish to experiment with a mixture of hypnotherapy and counselling and I also have a programme of behavioural change for those suffering from anxiety and depression.
I also accept clients of all ages and have worked successfully with children and the retired.
I adapt my approach to the individual and always try to treat clients on their own terms.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Much of hypnotherapy is ego-based in that it tries to strengthen your sense of self, confidence and identity. But for many people this is not necessarily the right path to go down for effective therapy. Too many people are already self-obsessed to the point where they lose all perspective. If you suffer from anxiety and/or depression or have unnatural fears the relief you are seeking may come from getting out of yourself and identifying with the wider reality.
Hypnotherapy is a very good therapeutic medium in which to develop a more Zen-like approach to life. The beauty of this form of therapy is that it can be tailored to an individual's specific spiritual or "transpersonal" feelings. Some people, for instance, have a strong belief in angels or other spirit "helpers". Others may already have a familiarity with meditation or mindfulness techniques. This is a very good start for effective therapy.
Strange as it may seem, one of the most powerful and life-changing experiences in hypnotherapy is past life regression. It actually does not matter whether you have firm beliefs in re-incarnation or not because just letting yourself drift back in time and experience what happens can be more helpful in solving your problems than many sessions of therapy.
I have had special personal training in transpersonal hypnotherapy and past life regression as my qualifications show. All of my my hypnotherapy is very influenced by "Zen" and my book "I am Brahman" (O-Books, 2010) was my own personal exploration of Eastern mysticism. Though, most of the time, I am practicing straight forward clinical hypnotherapy I welcome working with clients who are able to approach their problems from a wider perspective which you may call spiritual, transpersonal or whatever you like. I like to think that doing hypnotherapy can be more than just solving one particular problem. I sincerely believe that hypnotherapy can open the doors to something life-changing, something better that makes people feel more fulfilled.
