About me

Working together we can achieve your goal and make positive changes quickly with Hypnotherapy.

Using hypnotherapy - in-person in Dumfries and Galloway (at The Crichton) or online - many people see and feel significant results fast.​ It is a highly effective way to give up bad habits, start good habits and make better choices.

I aim to create a positive, pleasant and powerful experience for all clients. 

It is not a one size fits all. This is specific to you and a specifically designed hypnotherapy plan is created for each new client. 

Hypnotherapy can help you can unlock your true potential and live the life you've always wanted.

If there is something you would like to change, a goal you would like to achieve, let’s see what we can do working together.

All sessions are online (via Zoom) or in-person in Dumfries and Galloway.

Recent Client Feedback

  • "Three sessions later, I am happy and able to think things through clearly. I am sleeping much better, even losing weight, now that the negative thoughts which smothered me are going."
  • "I found Malcolm to be a very calming and trusting presence, which aided my sessions. Also there is access to a library of hypnotherapy recordings, which you can access any time. I find these particularly helpful to aid sleep and always have a more refreshing sleep afterwards. I would highly recommend Malcolm."
  • "I cannot express the difference these sessions have made to me. Thank you Malcolm...from the bottom of my heart!"

  • "I highly recommend him to anyone. Big or small whatever u are going thru, just give him a call."
  • "Malcolm really helped me overcome some sleep issues I was experiencing. From the very first session I could feel a huge improvement and generally felt so much less anxious and a lot calmer.
  • "Malcolm is very professional, and really took the time to listen and understand how we could help. I would definitely recommend Malcolm for anyone considering hypnotherapy."

My background
