I was dealing with anxiety for as long as I can remember and it was getting worse and was even starting to culminate in panic attacks at certain points. Reaching out to Biodun with these one-to-one sessions has not only calmed my mind but has also made me more confident in my outlook on life. With the help of each session and also the self-help tracks provided, you can start to feel yourself get more confident and relaxed while also understanding your mind better. I would highly recommend Biodun for any problems you may have! - Demp

I had some sessions in April of this year as my anxiety was out of control. It was always there but with Covid -19 it was much worse leading to daily panic attacks and bouts of depression. There has been an amazing change in the way I cope with stress and how I manage anxiety and panic. The therapy has also helped me in other areas of my life such as sleeping better and not turning to alcohol. If you are considering therapy, go in with an open mind and be clear on your goal. It certainly has had a huge impact on me and how I feel now compared to how I was a few months ago - Ann Stacey

The last few years have been pretty tough for me. I lost some family members and my best friend and was suffering from a lot of anxiety and depression. I also as a result ended up with some health issues triggered by a bad breakup. I contacted Optimnd on a recommendation and it has made a big difference to me. I now feel more confident and have dealt with the grief which I don’t think I had addressed. My health has improved physically and mentally. The sessions were very professional, and I would recommend to anyone suffering with problems. Thank you for all your help Biodun. - Edgar Christiansen

I had been suffering from low self-esteem and lack of confidence for years and I was struggling to move on from past events and issues. I had tried some counselling which had not helped so thought I’d give this a go. Wow! What a difference it’s made. I feel more confident than I have in a long time and am starting to put past issues behind me. Wish I’d done this year’s ago. Biodun has helped me so much. Thank you. I would definitely recommend it if you struggle with any issues.- Paul Ward

After suffering from extreme panic attacks and low self -esteem I thought I would try a different approach. Biodun made me feel comfortable and put my nerves at ease. After only a few sessions I could notice and feel a difference. I still cannot believe the transformation. I feel amazing and so much more confident in myself. I would totally recommend it to anyone considering hypnotherapy.- Sandy Doyle

Having lived with autism for so many years, I have suffered so much stress and anxiety in my life. Family pressures and the thought of not getting things right has put so much pressure on us as a family. I had read Biodun’s profile and noticed he works with autism and decided having tried everything else to give it a shot. I must say I was quite surprised about the knowledge Biodun had regarding autism and how simple yet powerful the techniques were. I am now so much happier within myself and have coping mechanisms for myself and my son. As a family, we are all using the techniques we have learned, and it has made a massive difference in our lives. Just understanding how our thoughts and the energy we project can impact ourselves and others is so valuable. Thank you for all your help. Highly recommended. - Charlotte Yates

Excellent, highly recommend. Biodun helped my son who has Aspergers. Biodun is very friendly and understanding. My son was not attending school due to anxiety issues and could not cope in busy places as he found things overwhelming. Bioduns methods have greatly helped him he is now attending school regularly and is a lot calmer when stressful situations arise and seems to have grown in confidence. Thanks, Biodun for all your help. - Tracy Haughey

My coke addiction coupled with alcohol had virtually ruined my life. I had blown all my savings and was at my lowest point. On a recommendation, I decided to have one more go and try hypnotherapy. I had tried other therapies and CA meetings but did not find it useful. I am not sure how this was different, but I knew even after my first session that I was done with it. Since then Biodun has helped me rebuild my confidence and self-esteem and I am back on track feeling better than ever. Drugs and alcohol are no longer even an option for me not interested at all and absolutely no desire. Many thanks for all your help and patience. - Eileen Whiten

All I can say is this is one of the best decisions I have made in a long time. I have clarity for the first time in 15 years. I have stopped taking cocaine and stopped smoking with no cravings and I feel calmer and more relaxed. Everyone has noticed a massive difference in me. Thank you so much. - Steve Johnson

I would like to share my experience using this service. I had a cocaine addiction and it was destroying my life. I was spending so much money every day. Cocaine affected my business and family life. I decided I had to do something about it and contacted optimind. Booking those sessions was one of the best things I did. It changed my life. I have stopped taking cocaine completely. It has saved my relationship and business and I feel free again. I would strongly recommend anyone who needs any type of help to feel confident to contact Biodun at Optimind he changed my life and I am so grateful. - Elena Norton

Training, qualifications & experience

When making a decision to choose a hypnotherapist, it is important you are confident that they have undertaken all the necessary training required to understand the theory and practice of hypnotherapy.

I am a registered practitioner with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) which was set up by the government to protect the public. The government recommends that when people are looking for a health care practitioner, including hypnotherapists, they only consult a practitioner on an accredited register such as the CNHC register. The General Medical Council guidance to doctors confirms that they are able to refer patients to practitioners on accredited registers which includes all CNHC registrants. All CNHC registrants have agreed to be bound by the highest standards of conduct and are professionally trained and fully insured to practice.

Member organisations

Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.

In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.

The British Institute of Hypnotherapy and NLP (BIH)

The British Institute of Hypnotherapy is a long established association of hypnotherapists/psychotherapists and NLP practitioners who are committed to the highest standards of ethical practice and professional competence.

BIH members are required to provide proof of training to a suitable level before being accepted and are expected to work within the boundaries of the Institutes Code of Practice.

It is a condition of membership that members have full professional indemnity insurance cover and are also made aware of the fact that the BIH operates a complaints procedure.
