DCHyp - HA2 Hypnotherapy

About me


For the early part of my adult life I suffered from severe anxiety as a result of childhood trauma. This in turn lead to addiction, relationship and a whole raft of other issues. After reaching rock bottom I decided enough was enough and undertook extensive therapy and research to cure myself. This I did and then decided to devote my life to helping others who were suffering with similar issues.

From my own experiences I realised that conventional therapy was often long winded and ineffective. So I set about developing my own simple, quick and easy treatment approach using hypnotherapy, related talking therapies and my own life experiences.  Over my many years in practice I have used these methodologies to help countless clients to live a much more satisfying, controlled and contented lives.

So if you want to

  • Stop feeling anxious every day
  • Conquer your fears 
  • Become motivated to achieve your goals
  • Let go of a trauma or bad relationship
  • Release childhood abuse issues
  • Beat Addictions (smoking, alcohol, cannabis, cocaine)
  • Silence that negative voice in your head
  • Easily manage your weight
  • Stop unwanted habits?
  • Enjoy much more confidence and self esteem

And much more besides

I Can Help You
Through the safe and natural power of hypnosis and related talking therapies, I can help you overcome these unwanted issues, habits or fears so that you can

  • Free yourself from needless worry & anxiety
  • Create inner confidence and self esteem
  • Be unaffected by what others think of you
  • Release yourself from past issues
  • Attain better mental & physical health
  • Conquer your fears
  • Beat addictions
  • Resolve trauma
  • Improve the important relationships in your life
  • Be free to discover your purpose and meaning
  • Create an unshakeable resilience to cope with life events
  • Sleep better than you have in a very long time
  • No longer feel the need to compare yourself or compete with others

My Approach
I take a very informal and friendly approach approach to every session we have together. I like to find out about every facet of your issue, so that I am able to create a treatment that is totally customised to your needs. Using this approach I get tremendous and quick results and build great rapport and trust.

Here are a just a few of the testimonials I've recently received:

Mark has helped me immensely from when I hit rock bottom through to helping me maintain my state of mind so much so that now I sometimes even wonder why am I not getting anxious in certain situations that I would certainly have done so previously.
If you are open to help, listen and absorb his help you will benefit 100%. Once again Mark thank you immensely for being there and helping me on my rollercoaster. - Ajay Jansari 2020"

"I came to Mark a few months ago, as I was suffering with Stress and Anxiety caused by family issues in my life. I had so much pent up frustration, and was so clouded by anger that I could see no way of resolving my situation....
Mark changed that. He showed me how to see things from a different perspective.
He helped me see all the positive things in my life.
I am a healthier, happier and more positive person for seeing Mark, and I couldn’t thank him enough for everything he has done to help me. Ha2 Hypnotherapy has my highest recommendation. Thank you Mark, you’ve changed my life. - Nick Geraghty - 2018"
