About me


Hello, I'm Mark

I have helped hundreds of people using NLP, hypnosis, mind mapping and future event visualisation techniques to overcome a huge range of problems from, depression, addictions, weight loss. anxiety, smoking cessation, anger issues, jealousy issues along with those listed below.

I feel as an individual and as a hypnotherapist, I am truly blessed to deliver real magic in peoples lives.

My areas of specialisation are

  • Anxiety
  • PTSD
  • Phobias (often just one session)
  • Weight loss

I work with clients building unbreakable trust and with total conviction that we WILL be successful and create lasting positive change. I love working with people who come to me as a last resort, often sceptical and then walk away wide-eyed and excited at the speed and ease at which hypnotherapy can work its little miracles.

I have had great success where many others have failed. I believe that all magical therapy comes from the unbreakable bond of trust and belief in the process we both have and feel. I also feel that I am connected to something far greater than me and this instinctively guides me and also allows me to channel positive healing energy into the words I use with every single client. I feel that magic working and it's very hard to articulate how, where and why it works all I know is it's real and I am blessed that it chooses me as its messenger to heal, inspire and motivate others through the spoken word.

Weight Loss

I am a Hypnoslimmer licensed consultant and a Hypno-gastricband licensed consultant.

Superior to even the surgical gastric band surgery, HypnoSlimmer also addresses your lifestyle, eating habits and the root cause of your overeating, raising the probability of long term success and a healthy body AND self-esteem.

I have been practising since 1988 alongside my other business, but have always kept a keen interest. I requalified again in 2013 through Nottingham Trent University, feeling things have moved on a little since 1988 and I wanted to update my knowledge.

I gained my LIHP way back in 1988 with the Institute of Hypnosis and Parapsychology London. I went on to open my practice which I ran very successfully for 18 months before taking the opportunity to play American football at collegiate level in the USA. I was informed that at that time I was the UK's youngest ever practising Hypnotherapist at age 21.

I was asked to take part in the Millionaire Mindset program along with other successful entrepreneurs in 1998.

I am very honoured to have been appointed as the ambassadeur for the Ethan Maull Up Yours To Cancer Foundation in 2016. I will continue to spread his word and ethos through motivational speaking, fundraising and any other means while I am fit and able to do so.

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

Treating PTSD or Phobias with The Rewind Technique

The Rewind Technique is a tried-and-tested approach to treating PTSD and phobias.

For many years, severe anxiety-based conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder or phobias were considered treatable only through long, painful exposure therapy, and in some cases, not at all.

Now, thankfully, we have access to a comfortable, effective treatment that can greatly reduce, and even remove, traumatic or phobic symptoms quickly.

Research results for the Rewind Technique

Although research into the Rewind Technique is still in its infancy, one study [http://www.hgi.org.uk/archive/rewindevidence2.htm] carried out by the Human Givens Institute in the UK showed the following results:

Study size: 30 people

  • 40% of clients rated rewind as extremely successful;
  • 53% rated it as successful
  • 7% rated it as acceptable.

No one rated the Rewind Technique poor or as a failure.

  • Prior to rewind, on average clients rated their well being as 12 out of 50.
  • Seven to 10 days after treatment, the average score was 30.3 out of 50.
  • Three to six months later, the average score was 32.2.

This represents an improvement of 167.4 per cent on their original ratings.

A four-year study carried out within NOVA [http://www.try-nova.org/] (part of the Barnardo’s charity) showed similarly impressive results:

Study size: 47 people, 57% of whom treated with Rewind alone.

  • 26 would have met the criteria for PTSD.
  • After treatment none of the forty-seven people treated met the criteria for PTSD.
  • There was also a significant reduction of all sub symptoms associated with PTSD, five categories had zero reports after treatment.

Advantages of the Rewind Technique

  • Less traumatic as you do not need you to go over the traumatic incident
  • It can work where other therapies have failed
  • I don't even need to know the details of what happened to you

If you suffer from PTSD or phobias I think I can help, so please give me a call on 07557 397245 and I can tell you anything else you need to know.

Let me treat your PTSD or phobia comfortably and quickly

Additional information

My fees are £45 pounds per session which is usually 60-90min and an initial consultation in person or through Skype or phone is free and normally 30min.

One stop sessions do work but put allot of expectation and strain on the therapist and client much better to spread over a program that is much more beneficial and rewarding to both parties and cost effective to. Some charge very large amounts for a 2hr one stop session but ultimately the client should always talk first to the therapist and listen to their instincts and instant gut feelings.

However I take each case on its merit and am far to interested in helping a client turn their life around rather than turn them away because they could not afford me, although when I feel I can help I will always remind them that can they afford not to?


You are the most important part of our team so I will always work late if needed or a Saturday morning to accommodate that.

Further information

Helping people affect positive lasting change in their lives is a blessing, I love my job it brings me great joy to witness such positive change in those I am blessed to work with.

Here is some of the feedback I have had from clients.


I suffer like so many of us nowadays from insecurity, lack of self belief, depression and negativity... But meeting Mark changes all that ! He has the ability to change your out look your thought process and the way you attack each new day, he installs a life change attitude and has made me realise that positivity only adds to my life and negativity takes away... He is an inspirational person that you will be glad you brought into your life.

'Mark Marsland is the most naturally gifted Hypnotherapist it has ever been my pleasure to work with in 15 years of practice and teaching'

Sue Rowland Tutor/hypnotherapist

The only way I can describe the last 8 years of my life is like living in a dream world.A lot of my days just filtered into one with me,not being able to remember one day to the next because of my stress levels,everything just rolled into one big mush.
I have been suffering from anxiety and panic attacks, to the point where I couldn't eat new foods or eat in new places from fear of being allergic to something.Even though I am not allergic to anything,driving was a no no.I could not drive down a road that I had driven down a hundred times before,without throwing myself into a panic attack.It had become a way of life for me, a normal way of life to live like this.To run from everything that was familiar and unfamiliar to me.I ended up doing the same thing day in day out just so I was comfortable and not wanting to run away.Sometimes not even being able to cope with these day either!
I had tried different treatments and therapies but only lasted one session on most of them due to panicking and in the end just running away.
So I looked up Hypnotherapy, why not give it a go it took me about a week to find Mark and even longer to email him asking for help.I had got it into my head all sorts of things would go wrong with hypnotherapy.My body and mind had already started to reject this treatment before I had started it!
After talking with Mark on the phone he made me feel so relaxed, that I booked a session with him. Mark was kind enough to come to me as I knew there was no way I would make it to him.With in half an hour of meeting Mark he had all of me relaxed.. It was like I had known him as a very good friend my whole life.
After 4 sessions with Mark I was like a new person. I was going out to new places to eat, foods I had never eaten before and not panicking.Driving to new places on my own like Great Yarmouth, Berry Saint Edmunds and Kettering, thats going down dual carriageways and motorways, which I had never done on my own before with out panicking!
I feel like a new person enjoying life again which I owe to this wonderful man.Mark and the work that he does, just not to be stressed all the time is like having the weight of the world taken off my shoulders and giving me a whole new positive outlook on life.
So I would just like to say a massive thank you to him for just having the time to see me as more of a friend than a therapist which helped me to relax and trust him allot.
Foe other people suffering like I did, just give it a go it really does work.Just take 5 minutes of strength just to call,text or email Mark it will change your life for the better in ways not even I can describe.

Thank you so much Mark I owe you loads for turning my life around.


Thank you Hayley for writing such beautiful and inspiring words...I am humbled and blessed by them...you did the magic I just gave you the wand ;-) X

Hi Mark

I am buzzing!!!...went into 3 places on my own today...chose the small places but made small talk as well!
Think Jim is in shock lol....feel like a heavy weight has lifted.Thank you so much for getting me this far!

Chris 25.5.16

Chris is 6 sessions in after developing severe anxiety....she has not left the house on her own in 2 years....3 weeks ago we had a major breakthrough when she took the bin down the drive on her own...she had difficulty making eye contact and could not talk to anyone..answer the door or go anywhere on her own. My eyes are filling with tears of joy and pride as I type this not for me but for her... she is a remarkable lady... taking her life back... I feel so blessed to play a small part in her awesome transformation....GO GIRL!!!

I wanted to write this to firstly say a big thank you to Mark for all his help recently and secondly to pass on my recent experience of working with him.

At the outset I would like to say I am normally a huge sceptic of anything labelled 'alternative therapy'. I also used to be someone with his feet firmly in the 'pull yourself together' camp when it came to mental health issues. However that has changed now, after finding myself on a downward spiral and seeing first hand how difficult, maybe even impossible it is to drag yourself back up without some outside help.

So a bit about myself, i have been a Police Officer for over twenty years and have probably seen everything over that time. Whilst it's an extremely rewarding job, it does take its toll mentally. I have always kept myself fit and I used exercise as a way to keep stress under control. However at the start of the year things unravelled for me. I was suffering what I can only assume were anxiety attacks at work. Things I would do without thinking became huge problems. Visiting members of the public, speaking at meetings even using the phone started to give me issues. I have probably had about half a dozen attacks spread over the last three years. They were not happening regularly but it was the fear of having one that was taking over my life. Before going to see Mark I was thinking I may even have to look for alternative employment, with all the worries that would entail having a young family and mortgage etc.

Anyway, I contacted Mark as a last resort. Mark had been my cycling coach for about a year so i knew him and trusted him. He had told me he was a hypnotherapist during one of our coaching chats and it stuck in my mind. I am not sure if I would have approached anyone else, it was only having built up a relationship with Mark that gave me the confidence to think he could help me.

The sessions I have had with Mark have really turned my life around.  I cannot overstate this, I am not talking about a few tweaks around the edges, I am talking about being in the most positive frame of mind of my life.  I can see now how the little voice we all have in our heads can really be reprogrammed even after all these years! Mark really understands people and is the most positive person I have ever met. Through our sessions he helped me to see where these negative feelings were coming from and the result is he has given me perspective back on life.

With Marks assistance I could see that my stress levels were turned right up to high and I had stopped connecting with people and life in general. Mark has helped me to find myself again and I have made some changes in my life for the better.

My big worry was that the work I had done with Mark would wear off over time and I would be back to square one at some point. Well so far it has not happened, it has been 8 weeks since I first saw Mark and I sense the change in me is permenant.

I have also recommended Mark to a close relative and he is helping with her weight loss. She hit the nail on the head when she said that this sort of help should be available on the NHS and she wished she had met him years ago.

A big thank you Mark.  It's a rare person who is able to make such a profound difference to people's lives.

I heard mark deliver his 'Tick Tock' speech in Lincoln Cathedral his words had a profound effect on me and many others that day....if I ever need a man to lift motivate or help others in need of powerful healing words for me there is no one else in the frame.

'H' Gainsborough

Hi Mark

Just to say thanks for your inspirational words today, your powerful yet somehow soothing voice brought me and many others to tears...I have never heard anyone talk like you...what you have is a gift that you truly need to share far and wide....Thank you for helping me connect with myself and life again.



Hi Mark

Gabby has had a great weekend the best in a long time, any bad thought she has managed to dismiss without any panic attacks or effects on her feelings which is fantastic. She's been really happy singing and playing drums and doing art, she went to church today at Alive in Lincoln for the first time which she found magical

We long for this to continue as I am sure it will

Thanks for your help Abi will we you this Friday with Gabby


4 sessions in with severe OCD which always tracks back to anxiety Gabby was the victim of her amazing imagination now its working for and protecting her with help from her subconcious 2 powerful partners indeed!


Mate, just wanted to tell u I had first real test today in new job. Had a formal interview to do. Was nervous last night and started to worry, but sat for 20mins visualising a great interview, in control etc.
Then today it went really well. Really pleased. First interview was a bit of a hurdle.
Just took deep breaths and thought - gunslinger!

Reflecting back its as if I had fallen over and u put a hand out and helped me back onto my feet saying 'it will be okay stu, dust yourself off and move on'

I was very apprehensive at making the first contact with mark as I didn't really understand hypnotherapy (other than what you see on tv) which it is nothing like!! I had a very bad time in Nov 2013 when my mum got diagnosed with lung cancer at at 61, and passed away in Feb 2014. Within this time I had a break down and was put on every medication you could think of, but none of them worked just caused me more anxiety and distress and weight gain. My break down caused me to be ocd on checking my body for lumps, bumps and marks which caused me to bruise my self more, I couldn't say the word cancer never mind write it, so 10 weeks ago I bite the bullet and made contact with mark and the help and transformation has been fantastic not only do I not check continuously but he's helped with my fear of my head being under water swimming and also my coke cola addiction, and also now we are working on me loosing weight. Mark made me feel at ease the first time I met him he's very caring and passionate about the work he's doing with you. I recommend Mark Marsland 100% to help with any problems you may have so a big thank you mark ? Mark has done more for my well being in 10 weeks than medication did in 2 years !!

Helping Mel lift past trauma,creating miss pattern matching, affecting her in the present was as always a blessing, the best part of which was hearing all about her trip to London,taking the crowded tube and shopping at Xmas with her man,something she dreamed of doing but could never do before.WELL DONE MEL!

Hi Mark!
hope you're doing well:) here is my testimonial for you, i'm sorry its taken so long, its half term now and I wanted to have a lot of time to think about exactly what I wanted to put into it because I want people to know how great you really are! You'll soon read that I am doing amazing and really am living life to the full. Its great to be back at Hammond and I am having so much fun on the course. I sung a whole song in front of my class the other week which I would have probably refused and cried before I met you, so thanks for that as well. The dancing is going so well and I couldn't be happier:) Proof read the testimonial to my mum and shed a few tears and just cant believe the difference between then and now. Mum is doing good as well and we are both ever thankful- life is a wonderment!
Lots of love,

I looked for help after having to leave my vocational dance course due to a complete collapse of my mental health. I had always struggled emotionally but it got to the point where I couldn’t function. I suffered from severe anxiety and suicidal depression, struggled to leave the house and had extremely disordered eating which seemed to occupy every single thought I had. I had stopped dancing which has always been my dream and couldn’t see the point to anything. I’d lost contact with family and friends, was self-harming and pushing everyone away.

I realise how amazing the therapy really was when I find myself doing things I would have never dreamed of doing before I had seen mark; taking my jacket off (even if I was wearing short sleeves!), singing solos in front of my year and volunteering to read out loud in classes.

Mark guided me through the rewind technique with a couple of my experiences and made me feel extremely comfortable from the get go. I walked an 8-mile round trip as well as a short train ride each time to see him and each session I went to the walk back was more and more enjoyable.

In addition to the hypnotherapy, he also gave me techniques which I could use on my own if I ever felt slightly anxious or like I needed a boost. These have been so helpful, and I shall keep them with me forever. After just 6 sessions, I had finished my treatment.

I can’t explain how much it has changed my life and how genuinely happy I am as a person. It’s been over two months since I’ve seen Mark and I’m now back training full time to become a dancer, my self-belief is higher than it ever has been, and I can confidently say that I am comfortable in my own skin- something I put on my wish list on the first appointment. Ridiculous as it sounds every day genuinely feels like a holiday and I’m so excited for what may happen in the future. I find myself constantly laughing and really appreciate everything around me like nature, friends and family. Friends have noticed a complete change in me and I feel like a different person. I now have the ability to sustain healthy, happy relationships and have learnt to help and support others without being dragged down with them. I cannot thank Mark enough for his help and urge anyone who is considering going to seek his help- it might be the best thing you do yet!

Eve Rutherford,17.

Came a very long way in a very short space of time and feel confident we will finish the work. I've been through an awful lot and he made me believe again I'll be okay. Wonderful fella!

Joanne Foster

I found Mark on google and that proved to be one of the most positive days for my son who was suffering with severe anxiety. We had been to the Doctors which was fine but I was not too happy with the timescale of referring my son for counselling and the counselling offered wasn't in my opinion what he needed. I spoke to Mark on the telephone at length and immediately knew my son would be fine and he went on to have about 6 sessions with Mark and i now have my wonderful happy son back. I cannot thank Mark enough for what he has done and I know Mark will always be there for my son now which is so re-assuring that he is just a phone call away. Would highly recommend Mark, he is one of the nicest caring people I have met that truly loves his job and truly wants to help people.

Thank you so much Mark

Vicki Doyle

So Mark has gone and done it again!
I went to see him over a year ago as I had a phobia of spiders that was ruining my life and he cured me in only two sessions. He won’t take any credit, he said I’m the one that did all the work but he changed my life.
So I decided to pay him another visit after losing my pet cat of nine years because I was crippled by the grief.
At the start of our session Mark told me about a new technique he’s using called BWRT which he explained in detail. I have faith in Mark so I was happy to go ahead.
What’s different about this technique is that Mark told me I didn’t even need to explain my issues in detail and upset myself which was a big help.
During our session I felt a little strange. My legs and arms felt weightless, almost like I was floating. It was a really fast exercise and when I opened my eyes it took me a few minutes to process what had just happened.
I felt overwhelmed, shocked and different somehow – but in a good way!
In just a few minutes I was talking with Mark about the experience of losing my pet and how I can now feel at peace and remember her for all the happiness she brought to my life instead of the upset I felt at losing her.
I couldn’t do this just half an hour earlier without breaking down.
I’ve said this before, Mark is a life changer.
If you’re struggling in life with anything, reach out to him. He WILL help you.
Mark, thank you X

Chris Townsend google review 5 star

I use Mark for Life Coaching as much as possible. We all have times when things don't go as planned, or how we would like them to. Mark will always inspire me to see things as they actually are and not how I might perceive them at the time. Over the years he has also been my personal trainer and we trained together when Mark took part in The Gladiators TV show. His lifetime of sport and fitness has encouraged me to have a continual gym membership since the late 1980's. I actually met Mark for the first time when he was working as a gym instructor. You will only need to see Mark once and hear what he says and you will never stop seeing him.

Patrick Tew google review 5 star

So far, I'm only half way through my process with Mark, and the results have been fantastic. I've have several anxiety conditions, and so far Mark has really helped me with my general anxiety, and particularly helped take a big, big chunk of my social anxiety away. I was extremely pleased with how fast we achieved the results - after just the second session, my social anxiety was massively reduced. What I was amazed at though was that after I came out of anxiety slumps based on other things and I felt back to my normal, the improvements on my social anxiety remained, meaning I had made real, lasting progress. Lasting process that was achieved so fast wasn't something I'd seen with myself like that before, so that was really, really great. On top of this, it must be said that Mark is a really great guy and is totally dedicated - he's really committed to building a supportive vibe, letting you know often you can rely on him for support, and that you can trust him in sessions. That he cares. And that applies in real practical ways in the sessions, too.

In my remaining sessions, I'm certainly looking forward to building on the progress we've already made, both on my social & general anxiety, and my other issues! It's been great so far.


Dear Mark,
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for helping Eve. I
contacted you in desperation; my daughter was broken and I didn't really know if
she could ever be fixed and more to the point, neither did she as her issues
seemed so deep rooted and complex. We were in a very dark place and help wasn't
forthcoming from more conventional sources even though it was agreed she was an
emergency case.

The most surprising thing for me was how quickly your therapy began to work. We
could see a difference after her very first visit. She says that she is now
happier than she can ever remember and most importantly she is able to use the
strategies you have given her to work through any anxiety she feels.

Her sister and I watched her dance at the end of last month; something we
weren't sure we'd ever do again. I say we watched, we actually couldn't see
much though our tears!

She refers to you as 'Magic Mark' and I think this is no joke. You are a gift
and I hope you don't mind but I have already recommended you to a couple of
people who are suffering.

Thank you Mark, you have lifted our cloud.

Very best regards

Pippa Rutherford

My reply to Pippa

Hi Pippa

Thank you for your wonderful words but more importantly for taking the time out of your busy life to share them. I was going to write to you about your amazing daughter but you stole my thunder! She has done and achieved so much in our sessions together. Watching her let go of negative things and then reconnect positively moving forward has been my blessing. In truth the magic was always within her, I just gave her the wand so she could use it again.
When you do the work I do it's hard not to get attached to people in some ways we are always connected because of the journey we have shared, things we have talked about or overcome. The foundation of all life-changing therapy is the rapport we create together I was blessed to be her wingman. I told her in our last session that you did an incredible job with her, strong, independent, courageous, carefree and connected to life...the dance of life. I have not had the privilege of meeting you or her sisters but I know they will all be bright, beautiful and gifted inside and out. I would have loved to have had a daughter, I have an awesome son Connor who will be 24 next month. If I'd had that gift of a daughter then I would have liked to think she would be like Eve. I told her that and that she is doing what she was meant to do I am so happy you pointed her to me at this stage of her journey. She is a remarkable young lady with a remarkable mother and siblings. I have a feeling we will all watch her with great pride dancing to her own unique beat on stage one day.

I feel blessed to have shared a waltz with her for a while then pointed her to a new partner feeling happy and full of pride as I watched her walk away.
I am so glad that you have your daughter back and will always be here if ever I am needed again. Thank you for pointing others in need to me, when we illuminate others in turn we illuminate ourselves.
I look forward to hearing my wing lady's testimonial also, your words will help others to take that courageous first step.

Kindest regards always Pippa


Mark you are a true star I'm so much better in myself thank you x

Mandy Hall 20.4.17

Life's a funny thing...it's just a big circle..and you often meet people more than once... When I was 17, sitting in Lincoln's Littlewood's Cafe...engrossed in conversation with my friend, I had no idea that many, many years later we would pick up from where we left off! So here I am extolling the virtues of my dear friend of many (too many to count) years and to say a massive 'Thank You' x I've always been cynical about Hypnosis and other 'similar' processes, thinking 'I can't be hypnotised, I can't be treated with all that stuff'. How WRONG I was. I'll 'spare' you the details, but suffice to say that I was struggling with a close bereavement. Using the 'Havening' process with Mark...I can talk positively about a devastating time without breaking down. If it was just this one thing that Mark has helped me with, then I'd be happy...but there's more... Self confidence, weight loss...and so many 'little' things that are 'knock-on' effects from those feelings are now also resolving. I feel like a different person. I realise that's a huge statement, but it's actually true. I understand that initially we think about cost etc., But put things into perspective...how much have you already spent on things that haven't worked? More than you'd probably like to admit. So really, it's a bit of a no-brainer :) I wish I'd done this sooner, but then..that's part of our learning process...we never know what's round 'Life's Corner'. If reading this has made you curious, contact Mark and tell him how you feel, and I guarantee you will feel so much better. Once again, Thanks Marsie..you're a Star. Xx

Susan Gray Lincoln 20.10.16

Today I walked to the post box at the end of my street,on my own.
To most people that's an everyday occurance but to me it felt like climbing a mountain.

After suffering ill health for a long time,I was told by the consultant to avoid infections as this would damage my lungs,hence shortening my lifespan.Without knowing I took those words and buried them deep in my head.
My health improved slightly and I was even able to go on a cruise for our 25th wedding anniversary.
As time went on I had other health problems and had to also stop driving.Each day I found myself slipping deeper and deeper into a black hole.Depression took over and I couldn't cope with even the simplest of things,just leaving the house alone or with family made me panic.I could not even answer the door and didn't want to see anyone.The life I had did not seem worth living or fighting for,I had stopped being the out going person I once was ,eventually I suffered a breakdown.
Outings turned me into a complete wreck,I became anxious,self harming biting my arms,ripping skin from my fingers.I was prescribed pills and saw a counsellor, which did nothing but make me feel worse!
Then a good friend recommended Mark to me, eventually so desperate to get help,I emailed him,This turned out to be the best thing I had done in a very long time.
Mark rang and listening to his voice and words I immediately felt hope.On my first visit I was a quivering wreck,I took a long list of everything I had wrong with me.
My husband said to Mark that he had his hands full with me.Neither of us ever felt or thought that things could change.How wrong we were,after that first visit I came away feeling that a ladder had been put down that very deep hole that I was in.
Mark helped me climb that ladder step by step,I am seeing,not just myself returning but a much improved new me.
Using the 'rewind Method' and future programming along with NLP ..Mark helped me get rid of the terror of catching infections and other emotional hooks buried deep in my head. Even now I try to think of what I was so scared of and it does not bother me at all now.
I can now sit in a restaurant facing people, not hiding with my back to them in a corner any more. I can now go out with my husband and help him with our business instead of being a jibbering wreck. I recal how it felt when I walked the bin to the end of my drive, which at the time felt amazing. One giant step Mark has held my hand through, as he puts it, along the way, one step amongst many.
Mark took me to his special lake which he likes to call 'The Haven', we sat on a his bench of contemplation as he taught me mindfulness, how to connect with myself and nature, then the universe. It was an is an amazing place and experience. I had tears of release rolling down my face and felt like a huge weight had lifted from me.I don't really understand what happened but it felt profound and awesome as Mark would say. Awesome is now my favourite word.
Walking back from the lake I even said hello to a person we walked past.This was something I had not been able to do in a very long time.Without a word we looked at each other and did a massive high five with Mark it made me feel awesome!

Another time Mark took me to his village pub without warning,inside my head I wanted to run but we went in and he got me to order the drinks.Another huge step that did not bother me in the end.Yes I could have run but the thought was just that,fleeting and I was able to take control and succeed.
I feel as though I am waking up from what can only be described as a nightmare. I was still having some hard times but each time I saw Mark I was able to come away one step better.
I have always had a temper and have never been able to calm down and depression has played a massive part in my life, especially over the last 18 months.This has been the hardest thing to change.I can find myself blowing up at the silliest of things and feel I have no self worth.
I wrote all this for Mark a few weeks ago, so Mark will wonder why I have written it again.I felt like I wanted to add more but mainly to put it into writing,that since seeing Mark,two weeks ago.When he made me a new Mp3 recording, feeding in all that I have achieved and all that I will achieve, my life has been awesome! I have an awesome feeling of having woken up,two whole weeks of the new me, no outbursts,no panic attacks,no hiding away no depression.
Mark, I am now sitting at the top of that ladder looking out and smiling knowing that I can be positive,connected,relaxed and a happy person.I know I have a bit further to go but I feel while sitting on the edge of that hole that I will never go back that way again and yes you guessed it feels....AWESOME!

Mark has given me not only my life back but definitely changed me for the better, I am a much better parson than I have ever been before, the best version of myself Mark will say.

Mark is a remarkable man and excellent at what he does,I feel that I have gained a friend for life and know that I will continue to improve through his wisdom and his excellent guidance.
I would recommend Mark to anybody without hesitation, for he has truly changed my life for the better.

A thousand thank you's would not seem enough.


Thank you Mark

Testimonial Jasmine Holmes Hypnobirthing

Last year I found out I was expecting a baby with my wonderful partner Jordan. After our first scan, we was given a due date of 25th February 16. As excited as I was, I was also very nervous and apprehensive about the birth and what I was going to have to go through.

2 years earlier, my sister had given birth to my nephew. And unfortunately, due to visiting my sister so soon after birth, I was subjected to some extremely distressing scenes. Although she gave birth to a healthy baby boy, she was very badly torn, causing her a lot of pain and emergency surgery. And I unfortunately witnessed the before and after effects of her labour. This terrified me for what I was going to experience.

I was first recommend to Mark Marsland by my partners step mother, who told me all about Hypnobirthing. Something I had never even heard of. I was very sceptical as I would say I am a very strong minded individual who didn't think could be hypnotised in any way.

My first session was fantastic. Mark managed to relax me fully, talk through my fears and anxieties and within my first 2 hours session, I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders, and my fear of birth had already substantially shrunk!!

After a second session, and some recordings Mark prepared for me, I felt really positive about what I was about to experience. I was listening to the recordings nightly and would imagine myself in a 'special place' preparing me for the pain I was going to feel.

When it finally came to my labour, I can honestly say I am thrilled I went to Mark for the Hypnobirthing. During my labour, when I really believed I couldn't take anymore. I used his techniques to take myself back to my special place, taking me a step closer each time, each contraction, to meeting my beautiful baby boy.

Labour was one of the best experiences I believe I will ever have, and I know Marks sessions were a huge contribution to this, along with a great team of people and the wonderful midwife I had with me.

Anyone reading this I really couldn't recommend Mark enough he really does do a fantastic job and is the most caring nicest person you'll ever meet. Adele.

Hi, I am not sure how you want me to send this appreciation statement of your help. So I will put it below. If its too much info let me know and I can tweak it it if you wish


Thank you Mark for the hypnotherapy sessions. I had issues that went too far down rabbit holes and where most would not be able to understand or comprehend. Just to say that I have always felt that my world was not complete and I had for decades searched for those missing pieces of my life. Without a positive path I had no true identity and my world was a difficult one. With your hypnotherapy help it has allowed me to access these blocked thoughts that were deliberately implanted at a very very young age. . Your patience and understanding allowed me to look at what was done to me. It has allowed me to now move on and take away that manipulation. Also it was interesting to see past memories of some of my past lives. Some I had already had knowledge of from my own mediations . Our lives are an ever ending circle of living and dying; and each life is a unique path which allows us to seek the truth of self and learn that we are all part of one universe.

Thank you Mark. My world is now more complete.
