Hi I'm Mark Spalek, an experienced and fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist with a practice, Positive Suggestions Hypnotherapy and Well-Being, based in Leicester, Leicestershire. I am passionate about helping people and offer a professional, caring service in relaxed, comfortable surroundings in the city centre, with easy parking access and close proximity to the train station and local and national bus services.
Educated to Masters Level, I offer a range of therapies that are tailored to your individual needs. I am fully insured and registered with the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council, adhering to its strict Code of Ethics.
I offer a free initial consultation in order to build a rich picture of your issues so that I can develop the most effective treatment plan for you. The initial consultation also provides you with the opportunity to find out about the benefits of hypnotherapy and what a typical hypnotherapy session involves. You will also receive a free relaxation CD as part of my service.
I am passionate about self-help and offer a range of meditation and self-hypnosis audio CD's and MP3's which I sell through major digital retailers.
I also run relaxation and confidence building workshops for local charities, and am a Lecturer in Confidence Building, providing confidence building services for companies and government agencies within Leicestershire.
1000's of Hours of Clinical Experience
As a Clinical Hypnotherapist I offer a vast range of experience within helping clients resolve their issues and achieve their goals. This experience has been built up over many years and has involved 1000's of clinical hours within the comfortable surroundings of my practice.
Professionally Recorded Audio CD With Each Session
The treatment plans that I tailor individually for each client include a professionally recorded audio CD with each session. The CD's are designed to reinforce the work that we have done in the session and to speed up the process of positive change, giving you complete and total confidence that you are getting full value for money.
Some Recent Customer Feedback
"Thanks for all your help over the last few months. I've found the sessions have really helped me to focus more and I've absolutely learned how to handle difficult situations much better. You had your work cut out with me as there were so many different issues I wanted to work on (e.g. anxiety, stress, procrastination, stage fright and food related issues), but each session has really helped to tackle each one. I now feel equipped to face my next personal adventure, moving abroad!" Alex, Leicester
"After many decades of performing and speaking in front of crowds of all sizes for a living, I experienced a devastating incident that shook my self-confidence to the core. Suddenly, I became traumatized speaking or performing in front of any group of people.
Desperate to find a path back to the confidence and joy to perform again, I contacted Mark Spalek to see what possibilities hypnotherapy might offer me.
From the very beginning, I found Mark's approach to be highly professional - he invested 150% of himself in guiding me towards regaining the performance self-confidence I had once enjoyed.
The outcome working together with Mark was truly miraculous. I had regained so much of the poise and confidence I had enjoyed as a teacher/speaker/performer that I arranged to do a one man show (75 minutes long) in support of a local charity. Further, each day I continue following the techniques developed through my sessions with Mark, my confidence improves… I'm the old Steve again!!!!" SK, Leicester
"Thanks Mark, for helping me overcome blushing when I was put on the spot at work or in a social situation where I didn't know all the people. For years my blushing had gotten worse and I am so glad that I came to see you. Now I no longer blush in any situation, work or social, and feel much more confident and self-assured with people." AS, Leicester
"I came to see Mark because I had a phobia of birds which was getting in the way of my day-to-day life. I wasn't able to walk down streets where there were birds and was constantly thinking about birds. Mark lifted my phobia in only a couple of sessions and I am now free and can walk down any street without any fear. I don't even notice birds anymore and have completely forgotten that I had any fear. Thanks for helping me Mark." Mehtab, Leicester.
"My comfort eating was getting out of hand and I started to put a lot of weight on. After a few sessions with Mark I dealt with the negative emotions around my eating habits and the weight has come off quickly. I am now my perfect weight and feel great! Thanks mark for all you have done." Trish, Leicester
"Being a busy professional with a demanding job, I found the hypnotherapy sessions with Mark really helpful in terms of reducing my work-related stress. The sessions helped me to build self-confidence and to value the contributions I make to my organisation.
"Mark is a great listener and has lots of useful suggestions as to how to deal with a high work-load whilst at the same time enjoying life. His sessions have enabled me to take a deep breath and to completely relax, which has then helped all aspects of my work and home life." Barbara
"I was smoking twenty cigarettes a day for the the last twenty five years and thanks to Mark I have been able to quit, saving myself a fortune in terms of what I was spending on my habit. I no longer have the urge to smoke and have really benefitted from Mark's brilliant aftercare service which gave me the confidence to become smoke-free. Thanks!" SM, Leicester.
"Returning to education after 25 years was extremely difficult for me. I needed help with coping with exam stress and being able to retain information more efficiently. Mark helped me view exams in a completely different way, so much so that whenever I do an exam now, I am completely confident and relaxed.
Mark also helped me with revision and storing and recalling information. Before I came to Mark my average grades were in the forties. I now average in the eighties, a massive increase! Thanks Mark, you've been brilliant." Sean, Leicester
"I am so very very grateful that I was recommended by a GP to see you Mark. Before I came to see you I was struggling with low self-esteem and self-worth and was in a bad place. After a few sessions I was able to let go of negative thoughts and feelings and began to value myself positively. I now have great self-esteem and know that I am a unique and special person. I feel so much better and have positive thoughts and feelings towards myself. Fantastic!" Julie.
"Starting a new job made me feel so anxious and worried that I found it difficult to sleep during the night. Mark helped me remove this anxiety and stress, giving me the confidence to acknowledge that I could do my new job well. He also helped with releasing negative thoughts and emotions and focussing on the positives instead which really boosted my self-esteem. My sleep is now great and I love my new job." Tony, Leicester.
