About me

However, if there is something you want to liberate yourself from or change or improve that you've identified resides in your mind, then please do call me (on 0208 9919805) because it's very likely I can be of service to you.

About Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a wonderful way of making real changes in your habits, behaviours, feelings and responses because it gently yet effectively works with the way your mind works. With the way your mind stores the problem patterns and safely changes those patterns (patterns of thought and response) to bring about your wanted responses instead. You don't consciously choose to have an issue, it's something that is going on unconsciously and what's needed is to change those unconsciously held perceptions and responses. Hypnotherapy has been proven over time to be an effective and elegant method for doing just that.  

I use a thorough method of first understanding the processes that hold the issue in place and then tailoring the solution to the individual. So if you were to work with me I would first have a conversation with you on the phone to verify that I can help you and to take some information about the issue or area of improvement you want. Then after really listening to you, I will tailor a session or sessions to you in order that we get the best effect possible for you.  

Together we will work to produce the results you want in a way that is

- Satisfying and what you were looking for
- Completely safe and comfortable
Fits in with your life style and present commitments...and...
- Sustainable for the long term

You can choose to come to me in my Ealing based office or I can come to you at a slightly increased fee for travel time and cost: I serve all areas of West London.

        What other clients have said:


        "I had been thinking about stopping smoking for years when a colleague mentioned they’d stopped with the help of hypnosis. After a few enquiries a friend recommended James and within 2 sessions with him I stopped. Just like that! James is very supportive before, during and after the sessions and explains the process very well. I would recommend James to anyone wanting to quit smoking but needing some support. It was an all round great experience."
        Claire McKenzie, London

        "I’d been trying to quit for ages but life was seemingly being quite stressful and so it gave me loads of excuses to continue. However, a couple of months ago, I decided to give James a go – and to be honest I didn’t hold out much hope but to say I was amazed, or still am by the result, would be an understatement. After 1 session with James I stopped and not just stopped but I don’t even think about smoking let alone have any cravings. I feel so detached from it; it’s like all the thoughts and feelings around smoking have been erased from my mind. And despite various challenges cropping up I haven’t thought or had a desire to smoke.  Nor have I either replaced smoking with anything else or put on weight. So, if you’ve been trying to stop smoking and haven’t managed it yet I highly recommend James."
        Julie Kerr, London


        "I am thrilled to tell you that the hypnosis worked brilliantly. I had no problems on any of the lifts skiing and tested myself by doing new things."
        Jennifer Griffiths, Chiswick

        "Testing out the effects of this when next driving on this road segment I noticed my anxiety was almost non-existent! Instead I felt calm and alert with a sense that I could handle it and fear appropriate to the situation. I am now no longer tensed when I drive this specific stretch."
        S.M.S., Philladelphia, USA

        "Until working with James I had a serious phobia of rats for as long as I can remember. I used to avoid going through the local parks and cycled way out the way of them for fear of seeing rats. I constantly felt uneasy and fearful in certain areas where there may be rats and it really bothered me. However I made a major breakthrough with James using a very comfortable process of techniques and hypnotherapy and it got me to the point where I could actually hold rats and play with them in a cage. I never would have expected to be able to do this and with no fear at all!! I highly recommend James to help you if you have a phobia or anxiety issues."
        Charlie Sichel, London


        "I have been pleasantly surprised at how my cravings for Soy lattes have subsided considerably in the past few weeks, to the point that I could now take it or leave it! It feels absolutely fine if I don’t have a latte whereas in the past I would get a craving and feel I had to drive and have one in that moment!"
        Shenaz-Menaz Sherk, USA

        "My sessions with James are having a quiet but noticeable impact! I have started to lose weight but more importantly feel in control and not on a diet! 
        Denise Jacques, London

        "I had been suffering with an eating disorder for years, and finally decided to do something about it!
        After a few sessions of hypnotherapy with James I have noticed changes in my behaviour. This has been very rewarding and I feel like it has and is helping me move down a happier path!"
        Ryan B, London


        "After three sessions with James I have experienced a massive shift in the way I feel about myself. Now I already feel more self belief inside and more self assured than I have for some time."
        James Webster, Reading

        "James has made a real difference to my son Benn’s well being and self esteem. He is a very patient and caring professional and I highly recommend him."
        Cristiana Woodbridge, London

        "I have had a few sessions with James for confidence and we have applied a number of techniques to increase confidence. Some techniques have worked better for me than others but I can certainly say that the techniques have had a positive effect on me. Also we applied a technique for reducing stress and anxiety and this has an amazing effect on me."
        Matt Stringer, London


        "James delivers results. I was as sceptical as the next person going into the sessions, however the process was entirely tuned to my personal requirements (in this case helping to boost confidence and build techniques to support high sporting performance) and provided me a range of simple, effective methods to use that absolutely worked."
        Adam Rivellini, London


        "James helped me considerably this year to deal with some very stressful times relating to various medical and surgical procedures. He helped me to deal with and overcome my fears in a professional and sympathetic way. The techniques he employed were very successful and I would highly recommend him as a hypnotherapist."
        Janice Capstick, London
