I am a qualified Hypnotherapist, NLP Master Practitioner and Coach with 25 years of experience helping clients to overcome emotional and psychological challenges and issues including anxiety, self confidence and low self esteem.
Over the years, I have developed the skills and experience to successfully help my clients to create change in patterns of thinking and behaviour
Do you find it so difficult to manage your anxiety levels that it has a damaging and disruptive effect on your daily life? Perhaps you find socialising with others even in family groups is stressful and find yourself worrying over completing simple tasks or imagining negative outcomes with no valid reason for doing so.
If you are struggling to sleep or you are in mental distress that you cannot overcome - hypnosis is safe, effective and works quickly.
Imagine yourself in the not too distant future, you life has more meaning and purpose and you have gained better control and clarity.
I specialise in emotional and psychological conditioning that has had a significant influence on your perception of self-worth and the capability to succeed. Some ways that this conditioning can affect your life are:
- addictions, including smoking.
- obsessive thoughts and behaviours
- fear of flying
- weight control
- food issues
- managing the psychological aspects of IBS
- relationship difficulties.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnotherapy is different for every person, it is a way of utilising the unconscious mind to facilitate change in patterns of thinking and behaviour. You will be in a very pleasant and safe state of deep relaxation - half way between being awake and asleep. In this dream like state the possibility of change becomes more available.

"Having started seeing Jonathan initially for food control issues I found that there were other longer-term issues affecting my relationship with food. Over several sessions we worked through these other issues and I now feel in better control of many aspects of my life."
Mark Phillips, Investment Manager
"Jonathan helped me find a job I love doing, which at one stage I thought would never be possible. Jonathan was instrumental in installing a sense of confidence in my own abilities and highlighted practical ways to progress my career. Jonathan’s techniques are highly effective and have clearly been honed through years of experience. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wishes to realise their full potential."
Malcolm VandenBurg FRCP
"When we both lived in London I was pleased to send patients to see Jonathan. They all benefitted from his methods and he helped many of them. Now I have moved to Brighton I hope we can re-establish contact and I can start referring patients to him to become clients!"
Diane - Registered Nurse
"Jonathan was recommended to me several years ago to assist me with the problems I was suffering with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. During this time he was able to highlight issues that were exacerbating my condition, including the relationship problems I had with my mother. This involved physical and emotional abuse which I had struggled to live with for over 50 years and which had a detrimental effect on the way I approached life and relationships. Jonathan has provided me with many methods that have not only aided my coping mechanisms but given me a much more positive attitude about myself and others. He has always shown professionalism, empathy and enormous understanding. He has encouraged me to alter my way of thinking which has enhanced my life, relationships and my well being".
“Jonathan introduced me to some very powerful NLP techniques that continue to make a real difference to my life, helping me to overcome some mental barriers…truly liberating”
Teenage Girl – aged 16
“After the first session where I was taught techniques to help deal with not only exam stress, I noticed improvements. I continued to see Jonathan for several more sessions and we only stopped due to the confidence I had received from the sessions in managing exam anxiety.
He gave advice and everything was confidential which allowed me to trust him more. The techniques he used were very effective and I could notice the difference in my cognitive anxiety almost straight away. Jonathan was extremely helpful in almost every way and very good at what he does. I also have the opportunity to see Jonathan again if I need to. My exam performance has improved and my grades improved also!
“Quick response and excellent high quality service, only needed one session to conquer my public speaking anxiety. Would definitely use again and recommend to friends.”
Claire Myerscough Business Intelligence Director, News International
“With just two one hour sessions, Jonathan unleashed the confidence for me to deliver a presentation at an industry conference when at the outset I felt almost frozen by fear. I highly recommend him to anyone who doubts their capability as a public speaker.”
Rob - Retired insurance Negotiator:
Jonathan has helped me considerably. He has encouraged me to be a lot more positive and helped me with my self-esteem. As a result, I now go to yoga class and help out at the local animal sanctuary every week.
Jonathan has helped me to look deep into myself and listen to my body. He has helped me to bring light into my darkness.
