About me

I am the Principal of the European College of Hypnotherapy, have trained many practitioners over some 20 years, and introduced several new techniques into hypnotherapy.  Simultaneously, I have practised hypnotherapy during that period, dealing with clients with varied – sometimes quite difficult – conditions. To me, it is spiritually very rewarding to help people overcome issues in their journey through life.

Difficult cases welcomed! Especially those anxieties.

'He's good. He's very good!'

Known as the ‘father of lucid dream research’, I conducted the world's first sleep-laboratory research into 'lucid' dreams (in which the dreamer becomes fully aware of being in a dream) for my doctorate - completed at Liverpool University. In the course of that research I invented the first 'dream machine', on permanent display in the London Science Museum. The date of that discovery (12th April) has now become Lucid Dreaming Day throughout the world. (See www.keithhearne.com for further details).
