Hi, I'm Neil, and I have been successfully delivering Hypnotherapy over the last few years since graduating from the National School for Hypnotherapy (Glendaruel, Argyllshire).
I bring a mature professional approach to my clients, and I have seen significant success with a variety of problems. I am more than happy for you to contact me via telephone, email or SMS messages - whatever you feel most comfortable with.
Hypnotherapy will enable you to visualise success and your path to achieving it - for example; if you have a big day coming up and are feeling nervous, hypnotherapy is a proven approach to dealing with many forms of "performance anxiety" including:
- Driving test
- Job Interview
- School or university exams
- Sports performance
- Musical performance
... even that Best Man's speech!
People under pressure can exhibit a wide range of anxiety states, not least of all when having to work from home during Pandemic Times.
Hypnotherapy is an effective and proven anxiety buster. Contact me to see what you can do to improve your levels fo stress and anxiety.
I practice from my home address, I am also able to provide Hypnotherapy sessions at the home of my client’s if required, however this is subject to certain conditions and travel expenses.
I look forward to hearing from you.

The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status.

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
For people who have recovered from a serious illness there can be feelings of depression and guilt, very common under these circumstances. Hypnotherapy has proven incredibly successful in handling and relieving these emotions.
Similarly any fear of becoming ill / developing a serious illness can create powerful feelings of dread and despair. Again hypnotherapy has proven highly successful in dealing with these feelings, putting things into perspective and helping get emotions under control.
Get in touch if you feel you need help with any of these.
Your introductory session is usually done by email (or text message) so that I can gather as much information about the you and the matter you would like to deal with. This helps me to create a bespoke script and procedure for you.
This also includes taking into account any phobias or allergies, any previous hypnotherapy sessions you may have had with other therapists, or anything else you may have tried to help yourself previously. I will then be able to get started on whether the analytical or suggestion approach will be needed for the script - this part is free of charge.
The Hypnotherapy session itself is charged at £50 and lasts 45 - 60 minutes, (follow up sessions are priced the same) and I usually ask for 2 - 4 days notice so that I am able to complete the necessary research for you, allowing me to write your script. You'll be pleased to know that I don't recycle scripts, every script and session is tailored to suit the exact needs of my clients.
I can now offer Coronavirus-safe hypnotherapy sessions in Covid-safe premises.
"I chose to try hypnotherapy to help me with a life hindering phobia which I have suffered with from since childhood. Neil was professional, understanding and made me feel at ease throughout. After only 2 sessions, my phobia is far less controlling and has made a vast improvement to my day to day life. An entirely positive experience and one I would certainly recommend." - SF.
"I went to see Neil for hypnotherapy after struggling with my nerves after failing my driving test on several occasions. I had tried other methods previously and was recommended by a friend to ask for Neil's help.I found my sessions with Neil very helpful. I would recommend this type of therapy." - GMF
"Hi Neil. I had the tetanus jab today and it was fab no worries at all I went in completely calm and without flinching which was great..."
