About me

I am a fully qualified hypnotherapist practising in Maida Vale, West London, and the City (Holborn/Clerkenwell).

I specialise in relieving anxiety, stress, nervousness in social situations, depression, panic attacks, and phobias, and improving self confidence, setting up personal goals and reaching them.

Stress, anxiety, phobias, depression, panic attacks, addictions are some of the problems that can be relieved and resolved by hypnotherapy and energy psychology methods that I employ. My approach to healing helps build self-esteem, and confidence, improve public speaking performance, reduce and control weight, control anger,  improve sleep quality, help stop smoking and other addictions, improve and resolve  personal relationship issues.

In addition to the above, allergies, various skin problems, migraine, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and many other conditions are treatable by hypnotherapy.

I aim to help my clients to accomplish rapid, genuine and long lasting change to reach their highest potential. Everything about healing comes down to one simple rule: recognise and affirm your emotions and you have the power to control them. I use select methods of hypnosis, relaxation, visualization, mindfulness meditation and related methods to achieve these goals.

My approach to self-transformation is based on learning to affirm the present moment, undoing learned past patterns of thinking and behaviour, and setting goals for the future.


At the core of my approach personal transformation is learning to achieve a deep level of relaxation that frees mind and body from conditioned patterns of behaviour and feelings. This often results in the removal of false self-limiting beliefs, and growth of an integrated wholesome self with expanded horizons and visions. I also employ age regression, visualisation, and energy oriented systems to enable long lasting change.

This is one of my client's experience of hypnotherapy with me:

‘Hypnotherapy? Not for me.  I don’t fancy embarrassing myself in public’, might be your first thought.  Well, don’t relate it to the hypnotherapy you see on the telly. My experience with Murat has been incredibly enlightening.  In only 3 months of visiting Murat, I have begun to align myself with completely new thought processes.   I went to Murat out of despair.  I disliked myself, following the break down of my relationship.  In fact, I disliked myself full stop.  Over the weeks, Murat has enabled me to see the light.  My light.  His use of relaxation, age regression and energy orientated modalities have so far enabled me to tap into a power I never knew existed. I am living and breathing his therapy practices everyday.. well, most days.  I now have a Kitbag of Murat Goodies that I call upon in my hour of need and ‘just like that’, I am ready to take on my world again. Thank you, Murat.” ? C.D.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed my training with Dr. John Butler, a pioneer in the field and a highly regarded educator and practitioner. My other trainer and mentor Sharon Young is also a well-known and respected hypnotherapist. I am a member of GHR and CNHC, well-known professional bodies in hypnotherapy. I hold a PhD in Information Science from City University London, and taught in a number of universities internationally. My training and research in Information Science, and academic career as teacher at international level provided me the essential skills and qualities needed in communicating with people with different backgrounds and interests, and from different age groups and cultures. My knowledge of the way language and information shape our perception of the world helped me to integrate my past experience with my hypnotherapy practice.

I firmly believe that each individual has the capacity to fully develop their potential and achieve the very best in life.

I  research and teach creativity and innovation in organisational contexts. Here's the link to my book on that topic.
