About me

I am a medical doctor and neurosurgeon with a special interest in applying hypnosis and self-hypnosis for pain control particularly (but not exclusively) in the context of autoimmune and rheumatological disorders, cancer, Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

Free initial 30 minutes online consultation - via one-click booking on my website.

I organise my hypnotherapy work in seven to ten (maximum) sessions, scheduled at regular intervals focused on pain control/pain management.

On top of the hypnotherapy work completed under my supervision during each session I suggest my patients to consider to regularly practice self-hypnosis.

If you are interested in the hypnotherapy work I do - please consider to book the free 30-minutes online consultation (one-click booking on my website).

The aim of this initial consultation is to make sure that you are happy to continue to work with me and to complete a preliminary assessment to rule out contra-indication to hypnotherapy (however this issue will need to be corroborated by additional clinical evidence, see below).

Following the free 30-minutes online consultation:

1/ You’ll have to complete a preliminary questionnaire and - once completed - kindly return it to me via e-mail.

2/ I shall need from your GP (a) your full medical history (i.e. the full list of your past and current diagnoses) and (b) your full medication history (i.e. the full list of your current medications as well as other medications you used in the past).

3/ If necessary (and always with your consent) I might ask you or your GP to share other relevant clinical documents issued by Consultant(s) or other professional figures involved in your care.

Please note:

Hypnotherapy sessions are for pain management only i.e. under no circumstances hypnotherapy should be considered as a substitute for treatment(s) and/or care plan(s) as agreed between you and your GP, Consultant(s) or other professional figures involved in the care of your condition(s).

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

Pain associated with autoimmune/rheumatological disorders, cancer, Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
