About me

Mark is here for you. He has been in full-time continuous hypnotherapy practise in Oakham since 2003, giving real help to real people every week. He was awarded "Best Youth Hypnotherapist, England, 2018" in the Alternative Medicine and Holistic Health Awards.

He started studying in this field early in the 1970s; he continually studies, rather than just practising with his first qualification and then going dusty. Through experience, he has developed techniques of his own which bring excellent results.

His general outlook is that he helps people deal with unwanted behaviour patterns. To do this he uses analytical therapy, some suggestion therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (which he has taken to a level beyond that normally used), P.T.S.D. therapy and various other processes which can be used as and when / if and when the need arises.

Rather than decide on a framework of therapy and herd someone through it, no matter what, Mark moves with each of his patients through their therapy and his work evolves as their needs become apparent. Therapy is a journey of discovery for him as well as them and only by keeping an open mind at every step, can he do the best for them.

The subconscious has no sense of time or logic. If it thought your reaction to an event was too much for your conscious mind when you were five, it will pay no recognition to the fact that you are now an adult. The techniques Mark uses bring such unresolved issues out into the daylight and the fresh air. Your conscious mind can re-evaluate them. Your subconscious is then free of a burden it didn't sign up for and it stops helping itself to over-time payment (i.e. it stops giving you a piece of abnormal behaviour).

Sometimes, influences in someone's life, today, can come from unresolved emotional energy generated in a past life. In these cases Mark takes people into Past Life Regression, where they find the cause of the disturbance. Here, with them, he helps them to a solution, bringing about relief in today's life.

Occasionally, unwanted behaviour patterns can come not from the person themselves but from a spiritual attachment. Mark deals with these and carries out demonic depossessions, as well as house clearances where a property is affected by such invasive energies. This work is best done face to face but Mark regularly does it remotely, all around the world.

Mark is a Reiki Master and practices Shamanic work, he also runs Meditation workshops; he can usually find answers and bring changes where others can't. He can also offer guidance not found in books.

Further information

Mark emphatically does not offer Gastric Band Hypnotherapy. Pretending a problem away is not the answer. If you have abnormal eating habits or eating habits you can't change, then this is because your subconscious is giving you this problem because it has a problem. Believing you have a gastric band fitted will not change anything in your subconscious. This is not far removed from taking Prozac to make you think you feel better.

The Gastric Band Hypnotherapy may wear off, leaving you precisely at the point you started from or your subconscious may recognise that you have blocked its actions. If this is so, your subconscious will give you another piece of abnormal behaviour in your life which will be just as much of a problem as your old eating habits.

The only way to deal with a problem in your subconscious is through analysis. The cause of the problen is resolved; with the cause no longer existing, the effect will disappear. Possibly a session of CBT may be neccessary, perhaps not.

The whole thing is then dealt with and the job is done.
