Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and Senior Lecturer at CPHT Hypnotherapy Training in Brighton & Surrey.
Hello, my name is Brian and I am here to help you to overcome anxiety disorders and stress.
Do you suffer from anxiety or stress? Perhaps, you have a lack of self-confidence or is a phobia is holding you back from living your life to your full potential? These are just some of the things that I help people with (see below for a full list), and I'm guessing that if you are reading this, then you are looking to change something in your life too and I would love to help you on that journey.
Unlike many other therapies, my approach is Solution Focused. This means that we don't need to spend time looking back at the problem, which could cause more suffering in the process, instead, we work together to move you to where you want to be - a brighter, more positive future. I do this using a broad range of techniques including Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Coaching.
This approach also allows you to make changes in a relatively short period of time, in some cases just a few sessions.

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.
Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Agoraphobia (fear of going outside)
Performance Anxiety (interview, exams, public speaking)
£70.00 per session
Free initial in-person or online session
Before we start your therapy, all new customers receive a free 1-hour initial consultation* in which I will get to know you and what you want to achieve from your therapy and we will discuss the best way to go about getting it for you. I will also explain how your brain is working, why it is making you feel the way that you do and how you can overcome it.
Each session costs £70 per hour, with the following exceptions;
6 Session Package
6 sessions of therapy booked and paid for upfront. Prior to booking you will receive a free, no-obligation consultation to explain how your brain is working in relation to your issue.
Phobia Cure - £180
3 sessions in the package. Using powerful hypnotherapy techniques I can permanently remove your phobia no matter how long you have had it for. Prior to booking, you will receive a free, no obligation consultation to explain why your brain is reacting to your phobia in the way it is and to discuss individual requirements.
Smoking Cessation - £190
1, 2-hour session. Using a mixture of hypnotherapy, coaching, and NLP, I can help you to overcome your cravings to smoke and enjoy a healthy life as a non-smoker.
*The initial consultation is not needed prior to your quit smoking hypnotherapy, however, the brain will still be explained as part of your session.
Alternative appointment times may be accommodated upon request.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a positive therapy, based on modern, well-researched strategies that allow you to make significant, positive changes in your life in a relatively short time frame.
I am the Senior Lecturer at CPHT Hypnotherapy Training in Brighton & Surrey and I am passionate about training others to work with a solution-focused approach to therapy too.
I will work with you to discover your preferred future free of anxiety and/or stress and then help you to move towards it (and in doing so move you away from your current situation that you want to distance yourself from).
Miss PM, Seaford.
I received hypnotherapy from Brian to help me overcome anxiety & low confidence. The sessions were wonderfully relaxing & I left each one feeling positive & energised. I also learned how to be more in charge of my own responses to events & to have more confidence in my own abilities. I'm now much calmer, happier & more positive about life. I highly recommend this therapy.
Mr W, West Sussex.
"I approached Brian to help me tackle my social confidence issues. From the first practical session, I could feel the benefit of Brian’s teachings. He showed me techniques to combat social anxiety, and the hypnotherapy was especially helpful! Brian listened to me and dealt with my queries and comments confidentially. I have really felt my confidence grow from when I first approached Brian and I am very thankful for his sessions. He has really helped me to help myself."
Miss S, Seaford.
"I found the hypnotherapy and coaching sessions absolutely amazing with such positive results for my self-confidence, self-belief, and self-worth in order to create what I really want in every area of my future life. I definitely recommend booking hypnotherapy and coaching sessions sooner rather than later. Thank you Brian!!"
Andrew C, Worthing
For years, even the idea of catching a flight to a destination made me shiver. I would always look for alternative routes (usually involving boats, coaches and hours of my life I will never see again!). The only way to get through it was with Valium from the doctor - not ideal, as people tend to give you funny looks when you act strangely at airport security, and it can take a while to wear off, eating into your mini-break like nobody's business!
With help from Brian, in just a few sessions, I now love flying and consider it part of the holiday. My wife and friends find me much better company on the way to the airport (and in the now worry-free weeks leading up to each trip too).
Honestly. being able to enjoy flying has really changed my life.

Brian really helped me with Hypnotherapy, I was in a really bad place at the start of this year, feeling really depressed and my confidence was shot. Brian helped me become myself again, subconsciously I could see parts of myself, and personality shine through with the effort both he and I were putting in. I couldn't be happier now that I have my confidence back!
I would and have recommended this to other people, especially those seeking help.
Mr. H, Lewes.
"After working for the same company for 15 years, I was out of touch when it came to interviews. Hypnotherapy Change Works gave me the confidence and tools I needed to shine in the interview, communicate my skills and prove that I was ready to move from middle management to running my own store."
MR D, Newhaven
Before I went to see Brian, my phobia of spiders stopped me from doing a massive number of activities at home and especially at work. Being an electrician and doing a lot of work in loft spaces it was almost impossible. After going to see Brian I was cured!
I went from not even being able to look at a spider to easily being able to handle them with my hands which have enabled me to do so many things without any fear of coming across one.
Mrs. O, Portslade.
My husband and I both had hypnotherapy and coaching from Hypnotherapy Change Works to quit smoking. After one hour my husband couldn't smoke another cigarette and by the end of our session, we had both quit smoking.
