Colin Jones is a fully qualified accredited hypnotherapist & counsellor with over 20 years of experience of helping people.
What is hypnosis and why come to me?
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that works through a process of focus, expectations, suggestions and imagination exercises. It is a proven method of therapy when applied with the cognitive behavioural therapies that will help you find solutions in what were seemingly intractable problems. Working together, the treatment will enable you to realise your goals, be in control so that you find relief and new freedom to master old unwanted feelings, habits and attitudes and enable you to be the best you can be and create a to a new mindset, a new you!
You can achieve your potential and enhance confidence.
As well a qualified accredited hypnotherapist, I am a qualified addictions counsellor and have worked the best part of 20 years in smoking cessation, addiction and the substance misuse field within NHS and specialist centres in London and the South West. I have extensive training in Addiction Counselling (Kings College London University and the Maudsley Hospital London) that focuses on helping people to change unhelpful habits. Whether you need the confidence are to be a happy healthy non - smoking or feel stuck and vulnerable to relapse with other afflictions and addictions I can help.
Outside of this specialist area, I work with a broad range of issues and concerns to help you get where you want and achieve:
- Continual and quality sleep
Higher levels of energy and motivation
Freedom from phobias
Freedom from smoking and addictive habits
Healthy lifestyle choices
Memory and concentration skills
Before training as a health professional, my experience and background in performance will serve you well if you are wanting to be more confident and relaxed in any field of work where you need to be at your best. Be it job interviews, auditions, public speaking engagements, or any other life event where you need to boost self-belief and self-confidence. So, if you need to pass a driving test or academic exam, you will receive tools and techniques tailored made to your needs to prepare you to be on top of your game. So, for interviews, auditions or addressing fears phobias or any situation where unhelpful or thoughts and feelings are triggered. Relaxation, expectation and confidence are key when addressing these any other situations
How I work as a hypnotherapist
- I trained with Adam Eason - (a leader in the hypnotherapy and coaching field at The Anglo - European College of Hypnotherapy). My Clinical Diploma draws on the best and proven models of therapy including Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy. CBH draws on the best progressive methods that use CBT at its foundation, using evidence-based methods that are proven to work. I work collaboratively with you in helping you achieve deep refreshing sleep rather than insomnia; stress relief and pain management; anxiety control, or for lifting the fog of depression. Or maybe you just need a boost when you need to be at your best. Or maybe you would like to treat yourself to a relaxing mind massage or mindfulness session and have that wonderful sense of just letting go and being in the present moment.
Please do call me for a free telephone consultation or if you need to know anything else.
Thank you and best wishes.

Couldn't sleep it was driving me and everyone around me mad - A couple of sessions with Colin and practising mindfulness and relaxation I can send myself off to nod no problem. I feel so much better, younger and have more energy for family friends and work.
Can't express how great it feels to not be a slave to stinking tobacco. Wished I'd done it years back - oh well I'm a new and longer path of life - better late than never - I know that now. Thanks Colin, you were so supportive in moments and urges. Never going back - Just for today a!...
Smoking was my life - but I wanted to stop . With Colin's help he pushed me way over the finish line and now I look forwards to playing football with my grandson - Cheers Colin 'you're sick' as my grandson would say :)

Colin's approach to hypnosis is refreshingly simple & very effective. No magic or mysticism here; Although the results are rather miraculous and I now am able to take charge of my anxiety and even enjoy social situations. Thank you C x
After the accident that happened at work, I never thought I could return to work. But thanks to practising the techniques I'd learnt in the session my employer was really impressed with how I got back into being productive again so quickly. In fact the things I learnt have helped me in other situations- really useful and effective.
I was spending 5k a year at least on dirty things that had me in their grip. Colin's amazing skills and lifelong experience just got the better me back again. Now I feel so grateful for that and know what to do to stay on track - brilliant !!
