Additional information

All programmes start with a Discovery call, this will enable both of us to gain some understanding of each other, and for you to know that in making that call, you are ready to make the changes you want. At this point we will set up a mutually suitable time for your first session.

When we work together you may notice as we talk that you become more relaxed. You will then settle to relax deeper in the chair, as I use my voice to mediate between your conscious and unconscious minds.

  • Freedom From Substance/Process Addictions run over 8 - 12 weeks programme to release you from the chains and destruction of your addiction, whether illegal drugs, prescription drugs, alcohol or stuck on the internet, porn, sex, gambling or any other addiction. Working with the unconscious mind to address the route cause, we spend the first 4 sessions helping you to clear your addiction and follow up with 2 or 4 coaching sessions to help you evaluate your goals, your values and build your emotional strength to live your life better and stronger. You will not need to disappear into rehab for months on end!
  • Rapid Pain Elimination Therapy and Mind Mediation programmes are over 4 weeks to eliminate anxiety, PTSD, Trauma and any other blockages caused by your Chronic Emotional or Physical Pain and to embed and strengthen your changes.
  • Life Transformation Coaching 8 Sessions to become the best your in life, relationships, business and careers.

The first session of any programme is approx 1 hour to 1.5 and subsequent sessions usually last around an hour. It is beneficial to complete all sessions in any transformational programme to fully embed and strengthen the changes made.

Hypnotherapy should not be used in place of the care from your Doctor for the treatment of medical illnesses. Hypnotherapy should be considered as an addition to your doctor's care, and you should inform your Doctor or Professional Clinician that you are undertaking sessions with me.

All fees must be paid prior to any transformation programme commencing. Payment plans can be arranged.

I would like to get every other Diet Coke drinker to STOP!
Coke Addiction Victoria Sedgwick Photography Victoria Sedgewick.

"Brilliant. I was worried at first wouldn't work etc.. but after 1 session I am not smoking. I have also cut right down on my alcohol intake as I was drinking regularly after work and feeling really fed up with myself. I am now feeling great thanks to Kevin's help. Definitely worth it!" Leanne Marie Maddison

"As an ex Ballerina with connections to both The Royal Academy of Dance, numerous physiotherapists and therapists for lifelong aches and pains, waking today pain-free for the first time in years is a true testament that this therapy really does work. It worked for me. I will be strongly recommending Kevin to all of my contacts friends and loved ones." Sarah Harrison

"It's been a week since Kevin came to help my mum, who is housebound and was in terrible pain which was having a detrimental effect on her quality of life and her mental health. I'm still amazed at the difference in her, she's virtually pain-free and wakes up each day singing! My only regret is that we didn't contact you sooner, thanks Kevin, you've changed her life!!" Kristie Packham

"I had a video appointment with Kevin today and was amazed by the results! After experiencing chronic lower back pain for 20 + years I have little pain. I know I'm not ready to run a marathon just yet but to have such little pain for one day has put a huge smile on my face." Elaine Hanson WRAC Veteran

"Hi Kevin, just an update. I fell asleep on the settee last night at around 7pm I’m told went to bed and slept through until alarm this morning at 05:30 hrs first time I have done this in years...will keep you updated! Thanks Arrow" Andi Welch RAF Veteran

"After a very difficult two years and a particularly traumatic divorce, I felt life was becoming increasingly difficult to cope with. I was emotional and hitting highs and then having incredible lows. I felt I was on an emotional rollercoaster and I couldn’t get off. After ‘getting through’ my second Christmas I decided 2019 needed to be different. I have known Kevin for a long time and trusted him completely. After experiencing a 90 minute Rapid Pain elimination session I feel so incredibly different. My fragile emotions have disappeared, my self-doubt has been silenced and my sad thoughts and feelings over my ex-husband have significantly reduced. I can think objectively, I have focus at work and more energy. I can’t thank Kevin enough it has been an incredible experience. I only wish I had done it sooner." Rebecca Ogburn

"Thought you might like an e-postcard from Venice with a couple of pics from our 40th wedding anniversary trip, as you must take a lot of the credit for it happening at all. It was a fabulous trip and the plane journey was absolutely fine. I actually really enjoyed the return flight as I knew I wasn't going to be worried.  I just wanted to say a thank you from both of us.  With love and thanks from Venice." Sian


"My new, more positive outlook already seems to be paying dividends.  I feel so much more confident to connect with people and follow up on those leads; it’s having a very positive impact on my business and, on a personal level, I’m no longer wasting time and energy worrying about all the things which could go wrong.  Instead, that energy is being diverted into positive things in both my business and personal life."

"Following a couple of unsuccessful job interviews, my confidence was knocked and I was feeling increasingly stressed and anxious about the whole process. My nerves were getting in the way of being able to present myself as I wanted to. Kevin was recommended to me and I had one session with him prior to a recent interview. I’m not sure how it worked but I certainly left him feeling more positive and optimistic about the interview I had the following week. I actually enjoyed the interview process when it arrived and felt in control and confident. I was pleased to find I was also successful. The session with Kevin was time and money well spent - highly recommended." Mike

"I injured my back 15 months ago and have suffered severe back and leg pain since then. I also became very depressed. Despite receiving various forms of hospital treatment including two back operations this year I was still in pain and could not walk properly until I started some hypnotherapy sessions with Kevin. From day one I noticed an immediate improvement and started to walk short distances using a walking stick before the pain started. After several sessions, I have become so much more mobile and able to walk longer distances unaided. I now feel much better in myself and fully motivated in my attempt to achieve a full recovery. My family and friends have also commented on how much better I look in myself. Thank you so much Kevin." Dawn

"I have been working with Kevin for the last few weeks on a weight loss programme. I have shed 7 pounds in three weeks and can see and feel the difference already. I honestly haven't felt hungry but am making more balanced and healthier choices. I don't feel the need to deprive myself of the occasional treat, nothing is off limits. I feel much more in control. If you are serious about wanting to shed weight and make a change for the better I can recommend Kevin to help you achieve your goals." Carolyn Edwards
