About me

Specialist in Anxiety

Do you feel anxious, angry or depressed? Are you worried that your habits are spiraling out of control? Do you have low self-esteem, irrational fears or phobias? Are your physical and mental conditions negatively affecting your life? There is a solution!

Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a transformational approach which enables you to let go of what’s holding you back and empowers you to live a healthier, happier and more successful life. It is a highly effective therapy that can make meaningful, measurable changes from your very first session.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a highly effective evidence-based therapy. It combines hypnotherapy with NLP, CBT, Positive Psychology and Evolutionary Psychology. Every client is treated in a unique way and all interventions and hypnotherapy sessions are bespoke to the individual client’s needs.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy starts with a conversation. You will discuss your problem or condition and I will ask you a series of questions about how it affects your life. There isn’t any magic or hocus-pocus! I won’t ask you to gaze at a swinging pocket watch or to stare into my eyes. I will simply ask you to go into a light trance, a state in which you feel comfortable and relaxed. I will then speak to your unconscious mind so that you can let go of your problem and embrace a healthier, happier and more successful you.

It is highly effective for Anxiety, Addiction, Confidence, Depression, Fears and Phobias, Health Conditions, Stress and many other conditions.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Information about health conditions (*)

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.

Further information


“From the first minute of my treatment with Anthony, his calm yet focused manner made me feel like I was in good hands – an impression strengthened by the efficacy of his methods in reducing my anxiety.” 

“Hypnotherapy gives you a new way to live your life. I listened to the recordings every day and I managed to free myself of the nightmare of anxiety and addiction to bad foods as a result of the work I did with Anthony.”

“Anthony managed to remove a phobia that I’ve had since childhood and that used to embarrass me in social situations. I am so grateful for this and would recommend him to anyone.”

“I recently had a session with Anthony to help me overcome my fears and anxiety with performance nerves. I was immediately struck with how calming Anthony’s sessions were and how his techniques worked. My fears and anxieties stemmed from childhood and Anthony untangled a lot of things that were holding me back.”

“At first I was dubious as I never really believed in hypnotherapy. After some time we were both in agreement he was going to work on a lifelong, some 28 years of nail biting. Can I just mention though, this wasn’t nail biting as a mediocre habit, I’m talking extreme biting that I couldn’t stop no matter what I tried, until they bleed, until they were that sore I couldn’t bend my fingers and even to the point I couldn’t hold anything in my hand. Nothing I had ever tried before could break the habit.  This is where the magic comes in; I spent a couple of hours with Anthony, who was calm, welcoming, caring and professional at all times. He spoke about certain things and asked certain questions to really help me open up about subjects I never even thought were an issue. After ONE session and to this day I have never bitten them since. That’s the honest truth. We’ve had sessions since but from the very first session I honestly have never bitten them, not even tried to. A 28 year old habit gone in an hour or so. I even had to cut my finger nails for the very first time in my life and I’m feeling all the more better for it.”

“Having sessions with Anthony for hypnotherapy and coaching sessions has been one of the most transformative and useful experiences of my life. Suffering with anxiety for over 16 years, I am amazed at how much my sessions with Anthony have helped me feel less anxious with daily routines. I had not tried hypnotherapy before and I was not sure what to expect, and I am more than amazed at how effective the sessions have been. Anthony is an extremely trustworthy person and I could not recommend him highly enough. I am grateful for all his help and will continue to see him.”
