About me

Hi, I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist based in Wakefield.

I know that reaching out is often the most daunting part. I want you to know that in choosing me, you will have a passionate and committed professional on your side. My strength is in creating a warm, positive and supportive environment in which my clients can quickly relax.

I use gentle, non intrusive techniques to tackle anxiety, low mood, lack of confidence, phobias, weight management and much more. These techniques allow my clients develop a clearer, calmer head-space and focus on the changes they wish to make. It gives me great happiness to help people re-calibrate and create a more positive future for themselves.

Please don't be nervous, email or text if you prefer, and I will call you back. There is no day like today.

Examples of testimonials:

Rachael - Wakefield (Phobia)

"When I contacted Mark, I had a phobia of hospitals and was due to have heart surgery in two weeks time. I had three sessions with him and felt completely at ease. His hypnotherapy room is relaxing and cosy. I went on to have my surgery without any undue anxiety or worry. I really felt like a different person when it came to it, and I can't thank Mark enough for what he has done for me. He has helped change my life and I highly recommend him."

Phil - Cleckheaton (Low Mood)

"Mark has been truly amazing, completely replacing my negative, repetitive behaviours, with a whole, new, positive outlook on my life and my future. I could not recommend this enough, particularly if you have tried counselling before. A calm, informative and far less intrusive way of resolving negative issues, in a way that is actually sustainable long term. THANK YOU MARK!"

Jamie - Leeds (Anxiety)

"I have been suffering with anxiety for a number of years. I kept it in for a long time. I had seven sessions with Mark and what a turn around. He has made me feel comfortable, at ease and he has helped me understand how anxiety is caused and the best way to combat it. The manner and approach he took with me was phenomenal, a true gentleman. Mark has made me view life in a different way and anybody out there going through mental problems and needs some guidance on the best way to sort it out, I would highly recommend Mark James Hypnotherapy. "

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.
