Further information

Colin and his wife Annette (a qualified Reflexologist, metaphysics teacher and Reiki Master) live in the quiet, peaceful country surroundings of Ayrshire, situated on the Sorn Castle estate, amongst some of Scotland’s most beautiful countryside from where they have their practice. They endeavour to create a non-clinical environment therefore achieving a relaxed atmosphere.
                                                        I am here to listen and share your journey.


Hypnotherapy combined with Psychotherapy in order to interact directly with inner consciousness, to find the core issues of a client’s life. Clients can examine beliefs and thought processes that are giving rise to emotional, physical, mental and spiritual problems and make changes at the core level from which the outer manifestation originates. With changes at the inner levels of consciousness the outer projection changes.


The experience I offer is unique; an experiential journey during which I will be by your side. I work with the unconscious part of the mind which is similar to a programmed computer which unfortunately sometimes malfunctions.

During my lifetime I have found that a lot of treatments are directed towards the symptom and neglect the cause; ‘you may take pain killers, but all in all, the root of the problem needs to be found’ ... and always remember, there exists a ‘nasty gremlin’ of transference whereby, one may think a symptom is cured ... and often is ... and yet as one celebrates the termination of a persisting stammer, phobia, fear etc; within the shadows the gremlin ‘takes root’ elsewhere to become an obsessive compulsive disorder or other such negative symptom.

Sometimes someone may be told something a thousand times, and even agree with the judgement screamed at them from the realms of desperation, which sadly often succeeds in reinforcing defensive walls/barriers within the mind ... and yet it is often only when a ‘realization’ occurs that a permanent change takes place.

When you tell someone something ... you knock on a door.
When someone realizes something ... the door no longer exists.

Time to Talk - from my cottage on the Sorn Castle Estate, or by phone if required.

Past Life Therapy ... Déjà vu - Past Life Regression is experienced using altered states of consciousness via Hypnosis. Past Life Regression is a journey which you may simply be curious to experience, or have some deep and meaningful purpose. The journey will often involve enlightenment through ‘parallel’ self-realizations and understandings from the past, which are often beneficially life changing. Sometimes trauma from our past lives may remain unresolved in our current life, and as such bring negative psychological or physical symptoms.

Soul Retrieval - An experiential journey of self-awareness and discovery. ‘Life between Lives’ or ‘Soul Retrieval’ is an extension of Past Life Regression. We will have travelled from the womb into your past life, and the next part of your journey will take you through your passing over and into the realm of spirit, for many people this spiritual experiential journey will be both profound, enlightening and life changing.
