About me

You can read my testimonials here, but first, let me introduce myself:

"Hello, my name is Martin Spearman, and I am a qualified Hypnotherapist based in Southeast Kent. My goal is to assist you in becoming the best version of yourself as quickly as possible. Achieving this requires your full commitment and a genuine desire to make positive changes in your life. The transformative effects of hypnotherapy can be remarkably fast, depending on the specific issue at hand.

I specialise in PTSD and Psychosexual Disorders, here are some testimonials (some details have been removed or altered to protect their identity).

Dave, Ex-serviceman
  I cannot express enough how much Martin and hypnotherapy has changed my life. When I first started the sessions, I was in a constant state of panic, hyper-vigilant, and struggling with OCD symptoms. My mind was racing non-stop, and I couldn't sleep or eat properly. I was overwhelmed by everything happening in my life and felt completely incapable of handling it all. But thanks to hypnotherapy, all of that has changed. My PTSD symptoms, which I had been dealing with for ten years, have completely vanished. Even after hours of CBT therapy, I never experienced this level of relief. I still have normal concerns in my relationships, but I feel stronger and more equipped to handle anything that comes my way. My thoughts are clearer, and I feel a newfound resilience within me. Throughout the seven sessions I had, I also listened to recordings in between, which helped me overcome my insomnia almost immediately. Within a week, I was sleeping through the night. Through this process, I've come to realise that my difficult childhood, marked by physical abuse from my Uncle and total indifference from my mother, greatly contributed to my struggles after my combat tours. In short, I can confidently say that hypnotherapy has been a lifesaver for me. I am now 100% better and forever grateful for the positive impact it has had on my life.

Martin helped me overcome my fear of heights. I am a UK/European driver and spend a lot of time in Europe. Unfortunately they tend to have a lot of high bridges especially Germany, Italy and Spain. I would get the shakes and really anxious when approaching bridges and would have to slow right down to speeds of around 10/15mph! Martin Jaffa has given me the confidence to be able to drive over higher bridges without be scared or getting anxious. I still get butterflies in my stomach but nowhere near as bad as I was before. I have even been able to look down and enjoy some of the spectacular views. I can’t thank him enough as this was a bit of an occupational hazard  . No matter what you are dealing with, whether it’s heights, weight, smoking, drinking or anything else, I strongly recommend speaking to Martin.

 Martin is a fabulous hypnotherapist who has greatly impacted my life. With his assistance, I was able to address my self-esteem issues, anxiety problems, and panic attacks. After just a few sessions, my panic attacks stopped, and my anxiety became more manageable. It has been over a year now, and I haven't experienced a panic attack. Additionally, situations that used to cause me significant anxiety are now easier for me to handle. I highly recommend Martin! His hypnotherapy sessions not only helped me regain control over my life but also provided me with some self help recordings to use during challenging times.


I am incredibly grateful for the transformative power of hypnotherapy in my life. When I first started my sessions, I was struggling with severe anxiety and self-doubt. It felt like my mind was constantly racing, and I couldn't find peace or clarity. Sleepless nights and a lack of appetite became the norm, and I felt overwhelmed by ordinary day to day life!  However, through the guidance and expertise of Martin, I began to experience profound shifts. I felt a sense of calm and relaxation that I haven’t felt in a long time, allowing me to release the negative thoughts that were wrecking my life and those I loved. I learned valuable techniques to manage my anxiety and regain control over my thoughts and emotions. Hypnotherapy helped me uncover and sort out the underlying problems from my past. I am now living a life free from the grip of anxiety and self-doubt. Hypnotherapy has truly been a life-changing experience for me, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone seeking positive transformation and personal growth. 


Martin helped me to manage my stress during my apprenticeship exams and driving theory test. We did lots of really helpful sessions where he taught me to understand how to deal with my stress and how to recognise whats causing it. I'd never tried hypnotherapy before and had my scepticism but this really does work and I couldn't recommend Martin highly enough. By the time my exams came around I was able to recognise and cope with my stress throughout, this really has had a huge impact on my day to day life managing stress and I'm confident now dealing with stressful situations as well. I would highly suggest talking to martin as his hypnotherapy methods can be life changing and its a totally different approach to anything I've tried before.

Martin worked with me to overcome my fear of flying. I saw him for one session of hypnotherapy a week before my flight. As soon as I got onto the aeroplane, I felt relaxed and excited rather than panicked and anxious. It was quite incredible. I truly have no fear now. Thank you Martin you have changed my life.
