About me

Hello and welcome. I'm George and I am a fully qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapist working with a range of psychological and emotional issues. For the past 5+ years, I have been specialising in mental health support and have successfully helped my clients to understand how the brain works and with hypnotherapy, they have been able to implement positive change at a subconscious level.

Have you found yourself in a constant feeling of being down? 

Perhaps you are experiencing panic attacks or excessive tiredness? 

Or are you stressed and more irritable lately and unable to explain your unusual behaviour?

Maybe you have already tried other things and have reached a point where you just need help to move beyond where you are?

Whether you are looking for support for anxiety or depression, or you just want to get to the root cause of a particular issue and 'fix it', I can help you.

How can hypnotherapy help you?

The first step is to identify what you want to achieve. We focus on that, and the solution. Hypnosis, and the state of trance, is a very safe procedure, which can help you reduce stress and anxiety. This is done very simply through relaxation techniques, which allow you to focus on the positive aspects of your life. This helps to encourage the shift in your perspective which is central to the process.

Research shows that the solution focused model can help people make significant and positive changes relatively quickly. I use a model that focuses on solutions rather than problems. We work together, in a way that is positive and encouraging, to enable you to use those tools that you already have to make the changes that you want to make. 

Because we work in a positive manner, we don't spend time on the negatives; that means that a course of sessions with me will be much shorter than with other types of therapy. A typical course will be 8-12 sessions, initially weekly, then bi-weekly as we see progress

Our first formal consultation is free. I'm happy to talk over your issues and suggest a course of action. Please message me on here or call me on 07703 162 072

Member organisations

Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH)

The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) was set up to provide information about a modern form of Hypnotherapy and its associated benefits to members of the public. The main aim of the AfSFH is to spread awareness of the benefits of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Its secondary aim is to support Hypnotherapists in their businesses by encouraging good practice and self-care.

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.

George is excellent at hypnotherapy. He uses different approaches to every kind of problem and gets to the root of the problem.  I had terrible anxiety which was turning into a phobia.  If you need any help and support don't hesitate to get in touch with George.

As a smoker of over 30 yrs I had tried various ways to stop smoking on numerous occasions. Each time all I could think about was consciously not smoking or that I really wanted a cigarette. Each attempt failing after a few months or weeks. After having a problem with my throat and having tests done, which all came back clear thankfully, I knew it was time to get serious about stopping. George and I had a chat and he explained his method and how the session was going to go. To be honest I really didn't think it would work especially since we were doing it over a zoom session. During the session I still wasn't convinced since I didn't feel like I was hypnotised. Once the session finished and I switched off my computer I returned to my day as normal. I haven't had a cigarette since. I haven't thought about having a cigarette or even wanted one. No cravings, no mood swings no weight gain. All the health benefits I wanted have come to fruition, my skin and hair look great and my dentist is over the moon . My fitness levels have improved and I just feel so much better in myself. I can even be around smokers and have no desire to have one. George and his process have seriously changed my little world and I would recommend any long or short term smoker to give it a go. Thanks George

George was recommended to me by an Oncologist at the Beatson due to my fear of needles & surgery.

I met with him a number of times online which was really convenient & meant I didn't need to take much time off of work.

I enjoyed the sessions & always felt more positive after them. Most importantly, I definitely saw a positive impact of George's sessions on my weekly treatment & surgery. I was far more relaxed, resilient & felt more positive going into appointments. It really made my treatment far more manageable.

Thank you George  for everything  you've done for me.

I would highly recommend George’s services. He’s professional, compassionate and friendly and he’s helped me through some difficult times. George has taught me useful techniques which I can continue to use in my day to day life. Thank you George!

After my first consultation with George I could not have asked for better help with managing my anxiety. George is incredibly knowledgeable, supportive and caring and helped me to develop positive techniques and relaxation skills, which have not only made my anxiety easier to manage but has helped me sleep better than I have in years. Incredibly I also feel more like myself than I have in a very long time. George will tailor your sessions to suit your individual needs and will take you through each step of the process at your own pace. After only a few sessions I could feel myself becoming more positive and looking for the good things I had around me.

Cannot thank George enough for his help during our hypnotherapy sessions, it has brought me back from the shadows of my stress and anxiety. Please look no further, a new positive outlook on life is only a phone call away.

If you have ever thought about Hypnotherapy than George Is the person to help you out. He helped me with my Achondroplasiaphobia which I have had for a good few years. He was happy to answer all of my hundreds of questions and made me feel at ease.

DM, Edinburgh

George helped me through a period of emotional turmoil. With the techniques he taught, I was able to navigate the crisis and ultimately steer into calmer waters. I still use the techniques when I need peace of mind or clarity of thought, and I would certainly recommend his service.
