About me

Ask yourself - what is preventing you from resolving issues, holding you back from leading a more fulfilling, satisfying and healthier life??

Your desire and commitment is ALL that is required to achieve FANTASTIC LIFE CHANGING RESULTS!

I can help you drop that unwanted behaviour, remove fears/phobias/addictions, improve that performance or achieve that dream.Lasting change is possible.

Change will involve utilising rapid techniques and need not take months or years for effective results.  I am a fast working therapist, one of only 90 UK approved Psychosensory Techniques and Principles Practitioners  (PSY-Tap), who seek to remove the root cause quickly.

It is important to remember that however much you may be suffering, what you are experiencing is a sequence of negative events locked in a particular moment in time. With help, this period will pass.

Hypnotherapy is safe, natural and feels wonderful.  You are aware of what is going on at all times and are always in control. Relaxation, self-hypnosis, regression, visualisation and imagery are some of the many tools I may use to help you.  As your hypnotherapist, I help you access the infinite resources of your subconscious mind, in order to bring about the therapeutic changes your desire.

My first consideration will always be the confidentiality of our client therapist relationship, your welfare, safety and comfort. Your treatment session will be, first and foremost, unique to you and will begin the process whereby you start to re-frame the problem and to circumvent whatever blockages are preventing you from leading a normal and happy life.

"I sought Stuart s help, tried lots of diets , that worked in a fashion whilst I was on them, only to find the weight piled back on the minute i stopped dieting !.
4 sessions of hypnotherapy and after 3 months I have lost 2 dress sizes and the weight stays off ! I both feel and look good and have a fantastic healthy relationship with food and exercise
I cannot believe how stress free around food and easy my eating is now .No more rewarding or over indulging with food and thankfully no more yo -yo dieting and counting calories .
Thank you , it really works ."
Georgina , Birmingham

"I am the mother of a teenage son who suffers from anxiety and OCD.

He did not sleep through the night until he was 14 and then it was only with yoga breathing and a great deal of time spent that he relaxed enough to drift off and stay asleep all night.

A disturbing incident in his primary school years compounded the problem and as he reached his mid teens, his anxiety was causing self destructive behaviour.

After a series of visits to Stuart, my son has re-gained his self confidence and his belief that he is capable of controlling what happens to him. This is a major achievement and I will be eternally grateful to Stuart for turning around the negative thoughts of fear and exposure to disaster that were in my son’s mind and affected his every waking moment. Particularly at night when he was terrified by nightmares and night terrors.

My son is now a different person. He has self control, he can calm his mind and relax in order to think clearly and positively about daily challenges. This priceless skill he has learnt from Stuart. He is changing his social behaviour and taking care of himself more.

I am so proud of the strong young man that he has grown into and I thank Stuart for helping him to turn a crucial corner.

Stuart has helped to turn my son away from a dangerous road and I am incredibly thankful for that."

A happy mother.

"I contacted Stuart , needed to lose some weight .Two and half months later, 4 sessions and i have lost 3 stone and the weight loss continues.
Hypnotherapy installed in me the right mental approach to food, portion control and motivation to exercise . Highly recommended, great lasting results "
Steve , Warwickshire

"I also went to Stuart so that I could get help dealing with my anxiety problem which developed in my teens because of chronic blushing. I underwent keyhole surgery (endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy, or ETS) to stop the physical act of blushing but I was still left with mental scars that gave me day to day problems and prevented me from moving on with certain aspects of my life.My anxiety would go through the roof during social situations and I would constantly feel on edge. I would plan every part of my day to try and avoid certain people and situations, and I would constantly scan my surroundings for perceived threats. After a few sessions with Stuart I found that I had actually done things without even thinking about being anxious and my level of anxiety in social situations had more or less disappeared. I no longer scan my surroundings and I now feel like I have the confidence to get on with my life in the knowledge that my fight or flight response will no longer be activated in public situations. I never thought it would be possible to feel normal and anxiety free so I will always be thankful to Stuart for helping me get over these issues and I would recommend anyone with the same type of problem to please give Stuarts hypnotherapy sessions a go as the results will be life changing. "

"As I mentioned in my last email, I had a drink for the first time in over a year and things were completely different like you said they would be. It's hard to explain but I will give it a try. When I used to touch a drink before, I would always develop the same binge pattern of drinking that would last for weeks or even months in which I would drink and drink until I was extremely ill, paranoid and penniless. As soon as I would start drinking I would drink at speed with just one thought in mind, about where the next drink was coming from. Once I was drunk I would always buy more booze so that I could drink again in the morning. I always had an overwhelming urge to do this no matter what. Even if I thought about not letting one drink turn into a binge beforehand, once I was drunk all these plans would go out the window. I would always feel sorry for myself and guilty, which would make me drink even more. This would obviously spiral out of control as my anxiety would go through the roof. But this time the urge to drink more had completely gone. I was totally in control of my drinking and did not feel the compulsion to drink more. It sounds so simple but I just felt in control and at ease with it. I feel confident now that I can enjoy a drink like a normal person which is a massive thing in my life. I don't have to worry about falling into a dark hole again. Thank you again for your help."

William - Birmingham

"I had suffered with depression and anxiety for a number of years before seeing Stuart and had become accustomed and almost oblivious, to the dysfunctional behavioural patterns that this had left behind. I had initially rung Stuart to ask for help in interviews as this was where I felt my anxiety really got the better of me and was holding me back from progressing professionally.

I had developed a strategy of deflecting situations before they got to the point of inflicting anxiety. Where this was successful in some situations, it was impossible to do whilst searching for work. After a few sessions with Stuart, I began to understand that avoidance, although successful in keeping anxiety at bay 9 times out of 10, was responsible for me missing opportunities in all aspects of life; not just in terms of job prospects. To think that I had been holding myself back for so long was a sad realisation, but I was glad that I had taken the plunge to move on and progress.

It took a while for me to be able to talk more freely about my experiences that led to my current state with Stuart and for him to gain a better feel for how to deal with me during our sessions. This was by no means a reflection on him; in fact it’s a small miracle that anyone was able to coax this information out of me and that alone is praiseworthy. His patience and relaxed demeanour really helped me to feel at ease without feeling as though I was in a counselling session - which I was strongly averse to. When I felt unable to communicate my feelings to him, he would take the pressure off and help me in conveying my emotions - which was a major help.

Little by little I noticed that the positive changes we had implemented were beginning to take affect. At first these things weren’t noticeable until after I had achieved them and I would take a step back to revel in how I’d accomplished a small goal that would usually cause so much stress without a second thought. Since then the progress has snowballed and I have done so much that I never thought possible. Things that I ultimately should take for granted as normal are starting to feel that way; from making phone calls without feeling sick, to getting in a car and driving again for the first time in 6 years.

I have a new job that I had two interviews for and I successfully applied to do my teacher training which I delayed for three years, ultimately as a direct result of these sessions. I still have some work to do on building my self confidence, but it takes time and effort to overcome old habits and nurture the good that was put in place.

The liberation I have gained from Stuart is worth so much more than what he charges and no amount of thanks can cover it. You can’t put a price on the peace of mind you get knowing that you are living as your fullest self! "

Stop Smoking Testimonials

"I had smoked cigarettes since my late teens.  I did not think that I could ever give up smoking.  I was conscious that I was missing out on activities with my friends.  Precluded from going inside anywhere.  So, whilst in Lanzarote I contacted Stuart Downing to arrange a consultation.  I thought that I would give hypnotherapy a try.  Much to my amazement it worked.  For the first 3 days I had longings for a cigarette every now and then but would use Stuart's technique to combat those feelings.  All my friends are also suitably amazed that Stuart in their eyes has performed an absolute miracle and there is a queue forming to follow in my footsteps – for once!   So after smoking for 47 years, I am now an ex-smoker.  Have no aching muscles and I feel 5 years younger." Liz K

"Having seen the success that Stuart Downing achieved with a friend in Lanzarote.  I decided to book an appointment.  One session later and I have been smoke-free for over 2 weeks with minimal cravings.  I feel confident that this is for good.  Thanks a million." Jackie

"As a 20 year smoker, a session with Stuart gave me the additional tools and willpower to finally stop. I have to say that the work we did together has enabled me to adopt a significantly healthier lifestyle. I have recommended Stuart to several friends and have had nothing but positive feedback. " David

"Hi, I went to eventually went to see Stuart when I realised and finally admitted to myself that there was a problem. I think I was just like everyone else with an addiction, I’m alright, I can stop when I want it’s not a problem…. but it was…I hadn’t realised just how much money I was losing, a gambler only ever remembers their wins so you think your doing ok…I’d get up in the morning and my first thought would be to reach for my phone and check odds for the day, it could be anything racing, football, tennis, anything at all because gambling becomes an addiction just like drugs….i would bet on anything, even if I didn’t know anything about the sport or race or runners, I just liked the buzz of being involved. With the internet so readily available and numerous online bookies I could bet any time anywhere on anything at all…if I lost I would be straight away trying to recoup my losses and if It didn’t work out for me I would get angry and bet again and again until I won but generally you don’t get all your money back so then it’s I’ll just have one more bet…it wasn’t until I’d maxed out on my credit cards that I was forced to do something, so I called Stuart, he made an appointment to see me very quickly and just listened, whilst I admitted my failings and finally asked for help, the techniques he’s used to help me really worked over time I’ve managed to get on top of my addiction, his fast intervention has helped me regain my life, self respect and I’ve removed my gambling fix…sometimes it can still be a battle but Stuart is always available and by using the techniques and method he has given me I’m able to really enjoy life again without feeling the need for a bet."
