About me

Paul Goddard is a certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming practitioner, based in Gloucester, Gloucestershire. With a keen interest in self-development and sporting enhancement, Paul treats clients in a relaxed ‘one-to-one’ basis during booked sessions. Treatment is tailored and duration varies according to an individual’s needs, though in some cases one or two sessions is all that is required

Hypnotherapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) or a combination of both has the power to transform lives like yours.

I became a fully qualified clinical hypnotherapist in 2011. Since then, I've focused passionately on helping people like you to achieve the lives they want and deserve. Although I'm a Gloucestershire hypnotherapist, I regularly work with clients across the UK and Europe as well as around the world.

Our work together is always about YOU
Clients tell me that they appreciate how I use hypnotherapy and NLP in a simple, friendly and client-centred way. I see people with many different beliefs and I always tailor our sessions to cater for their individual preferences.

Are you uncertain about hypnotherapy and NLP? At first, some people are, but I'd like to clarify that ALL hypnosis is self-hypnosis. No one can be 'programmed' to act differently to their own character and moral code. When we work together, you're always in control.

I'll guide you all the way
Change is frightening for some people; for others, it's exciting. Whatever your feelings about moving forward in your life, I'll be there to guide you gently and respectfully to your desired outcome. Here are some of the issues that I've successfully helped clients with:
Stress management, anxiety and panic attacks
Smoking cessation
Insomnia (sleep problems)
Addictions (including gambling)
Anxiety and panic attacks

You're not alone – I've been there too
From dealing with phobias (such as fear of snakes or fear of spiders) to athletic performance and public speaking, my clients often think that they're alone having these particular worries. Trust me when I tell you that I've never met anybody that hasn’t had to work on themselves.

Also, and let me be candid with you, I too was once someone who had a fear of rejection and low self-esteem. Having been in that position I really can empathise with everyone I see. I successfully used NLP and hypnotherapy to improve my life. From first-hand experience, I know that if people practice the simple short exercises regularly and listen to their personal hypnosis recording daily, they too can harness the power of hypnotherapy to improve their life.

Past Life Regression
Past Life Regression offers unique therapeutic benefits. By exploring perceived past lives, individuals gain insights into current life challenges, facilitating emotional healing and personal growth. This process helps identify and address recurring patterns, phobias, and unexplained fears, potentially alleviating them. It can also lead to enhanced self-awareness, increased empathy, and a broader perspective on life's challenges. May people find comfort and closure through this introspective journey, fostering a sense of purpose and interconnectedness with history and spirituality.

In-person or online hypnotherapy
For your convenience, my sessions can be conducted in person (at my Gloucester therapy room) or online, via Skype. You won't need to download anything to be able to enjoy the benefits of our online session.

So how can I help you? As well as the issues mentioned above, some of my most frequent clients work with me to address the following challenges:

Pain control
Stage fright
Relationship break-up recovery
Dealing with uncertainty
Past life regression
Fear of heights

Free hypnotherapy for terminal illness
Each week, I give my time free for one online session to help someone with a terminal illness deal with the associated stress and anxiety. If I'm already booked for that free session in a given week, you can have the next one available. If this would help you or someone you know, please ask for more details.

Contact me

£60.00 - £90.00

Additional information

The costs are £90.00 an hour for general NLP and hypnosis, although should I feel that we are really getting somewhere and a few extra minutes would be necessary to really make a difference then this is still within the £90.00 cost.

Along with this you also get personalised NLP exercises that will help you manage your behaviours and mindset – if applied.

My sessions include a free personal hypnosis mp3 or CD (if necessary) that will be recorded and edited at a high standard.  I took Media Studies and HNC in Radio Broadcasting and I was taught how to mix sound so you get a good quality recording, I use audio editing software.  

Quitting smoking

I also offer quit smoking sessions at £200.00 including hypnosis mp3/CD.  You get a free backup session if needed

Past Life Regression

£60.00 including a recording of the session – 1 hour
