About me

After many years of helping people overcome issues, my role now is to help you become a great and confident Hypnotherapist. Then you can help people just as I do and enjoy a new career.
Although I am now retired from the treatment part of the business I am happy for you to contact me as I can then refer you to a Hypnotherapist I personally trained.Please call me to discuss your requirement.

An alternative to reading all this is to watch the three videos on my web site.Much easier.
Check on my web site for any special offers.
My background is General Management. For many years I faced the fears, such as making a presentation or speaking in public, dealing with stressful situations and suffering the effects of stress without knowing what it was and what caused it.
My two adult children are also Hypnotherapists, one living in Perth Australia and one on the French Riviera near Bandol.
My interest in Hypnotherapy began after my wife Lorna visited a Hypnotherapist to deal with an issue and the change was remarkable if not astonishing.
Lorna would be happy to talk to you face to face about how she benefited from Hypnotherapy.

About me now

Some of these issues are listed next and include but not limited too, Agoraphobia, Anorexia, Alcohol Abuse, Anger, Anxiety, Bereavement,Blushing,Bruxism or Teeth Grinding, Confidence, Drug Problems, Depression, Emotional Issues, E.D.

What is Hypnosis?
We all go into a trance like state every day. Remember the car journey you forgot to remember.How did I get here? Your sub-conscious took over! Sometimes we refer to this state as being on "auto pilot", when in fact you have been in a trance-like state and immediately snap out of it if something untoward happens. Hypnosis can be traced back to the ancient Babylonians, Greeks and Egyptians and is named after the Greek word for sleep - Hypnos. In Hypnosis sleep does not mean the same as we understand our bedtime sleep to be.A good way to think of Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation and focus.You are in control not the Hypnotist. As you can go into this trance state, so you can come out of it whenever you want. When your conscious mind relaxes and becomes detached from everyday worries, then your subconscious mind can commence doing its wonderful work in its own wonderful way,free from interuptions and sabotage from your conscious mind. This relaxed state is known as trance.

The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

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

"Essential" or "Action" Tremors If you have this debilitating issue, then you could consider Hypnotherapy to help you resolve it and get your life back on track. I understand how this affects you and how it limits your ability to do "normal" everyday things.Give me a call and we can chat it through without any obligation to proceed further.

OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder I have many years of experience dealing with this issue. No need to continue living your life with this difficulty. If you can change your mind you can change your life. Call me and have a chat, no obligation on either party.

Insomnia What is preventing you from sleeping? There is nothing to beat a good nights sleep and with some help you could be resting peacefully for as long as you wish. Call me for a no obligation chat.

Low Self Esteem and/or Low Self Worth. Do you stay at home?. Have you almost stopped socialising or do you avoid meeting friends?. Do you feel you do not deserve something? Do you feel you are not worthy?

Panic Attacks. Do you fear something and flip out on occasions? Do you avoid doing something?
Your friends do not understand. You don't know why. However I do understand and can help you find the cause.

Weight Reduction and Weight Management Every person has the potential to be the size the would like to be. What is it that causes you to eat so much? What is it that prevents you from making a significant change? Have you been on many diets and "failed"?. Hypnosis can help you uncover the cause and then help you change your relationship with food and eating.

Smoking There are only two types of people who smoke, the poor and the stupid! A bit tongue in cheek but perhaps worth thinking about.
No one needs to smoke anymore than you need to learn how to shoe horses, we are in the 21st century and health warnings fly at us from every direction and yet you still smoke, ask yourself WHY?
Who taught you to smoke?
Did you watch a parent smoke or a brother or sister or friends at school and you thought they looked cool and then you decided you wanted to look cool?
Smoking is a learned behaviour and if your subconscious can learn to smoke it can learn to do something else other than smoking.Using the power of your own subconscious mind it can be possible for you to change your habit quite easily, providing you really want too!
One thing we cannot do is make you want to stop smoking, only you can make that decision and when you have made that decision, give me a call.
