Thank you for visiting my page. Below are brief descriptions of the services I offer. Much more information is on my website, please do take the time to visit and learn more.
For me working with my clients is a partnership, working together to get the best outcomes. I pride myself on the support I offer clients in between sessions, this not simply a job for me, it is a passion, to help people.
After struggling with addiction and alcoholism for over 25 years myself, and the impact that has you mentally and physically. I hit my rock bottom and turned my life around. I understand how it feels to be in a dark place with no sight of how to get out of it. Whether that be soothing them feeling with food or cigarettes. I help to empower people to take control back
I am happy to speak with people on the phone with no obligation.
Alcohol, Drugs Gambling, and other issues.
I specialise in helping those that are having issues or are struggling with any form of dependency or addiction. Regardless what the issue is, I understand, I have been there. The feeling of not seeing a way forward or how to stop or reduce. It may be that you are not addicted to something, but it may be having a hold over you. I am with you every step of the way.
My 4 session weight control programme is based around your specific needs. It is not a diet, it is changing your entire relationship with food forever. We all have busy lives nowadays and with this programme, it enables you to carry on as normal and not having to eat different meals, meals that you do not even enjoy.
My 2 hour session will return you to be a non-smoker. Helping you to take regain control of your life in many areas. As stopping smoking is a hard thing to do and is different for everyone, I have your back even after the session offering back up support. Staying in touch with clients in the early days is important to me to ensure that it is as easy and comfortable as possible.
OldPain2Go is a methodology created by Steven Blake. This therapy is not hypnosis, though it does use communicating with your subconscious. It is designed to remove old diagnosed pain. That pain that the doctors say that all they can do is provide pain medication. This truly a wonderful therapy and I use ts for many other conditions such as fibromyalgia, MS, CFS as well as for hayfever and some skin conditions.
Please visit my website for more details on my services and my story.
As well as the above, I also help many people with anxiety and depression.

"What can I say about Thomas. I didn’t know him, never met him, wasn’t recommended, I saw an advertisement on instagram. Had a chat on the phone , made an appointment as he gained my trust and boy was I a happy man. Smoked 12 cigars a day and left our one and only session a non smoker. Has he helped me since , yes I struggled a little in the 3rd week and I’ve had a few other issues ( not related to smoking) and he has been there. A truly wonderful person who has had his own issues and overcome them all Would I recommend this person ? Yes, I’d say he’s a complete gift and you’d be a fool not to trust him and let him help you , he’s wonderful and I wish him every success, he deserves it , thanks Thomas. I am happy to be contacted directly to verify everything I have said"
"Thomas came to see me when I was at my lowest points. I was stuck in what felt like a hole. Struggling with addiction, and ruining all my relationships with those close to me. With his help and the help of hypnotherapy, I was able to this unhealthy cycle and find myself again. Can't thank him enough for his help"
"This wonderful man has helped me become a non smoker.....after 17 long years of a heavy habit....day 65 and no looking back. Without the session with Tomas I know I would never have stopped smoking. I am so thankful to you Tomas and wish you the very best." S. Hussain
"The most simple and effective treatment. I have something I need to share. I have really sensitive skin .2 weeks ago I met Thomas who used the treatment Pain to go. I have been using a cream on my face for the last 3 to 4 days ......... that I haven’t been able to use ever. There’s not any irritation to my skin what so ever." K. Marsden
"Had a half hour session with Thomas to get rid of old pain. I’ve two disc problems in my lower back, I’ve had for 8 years. Definitely feel more flexible than I’ve done for years! Thank you Thomas xxx N. Hart
"5 minutes in Thomas’s company and you feel like you’re best friends he puts you so much at ease you forget what you’re there for I’ve had hypnotherapy before to stop smoking but it didn’t work so i didn’t hold out much hope this time either I was fully aware of what was going on I just felt relaxed but could see images so vividly I had 1 session and don’t even think about having a cigarette at all. I don’t want one or need one I’ve had no withdrawal symptoms at all and saved so much money I also feel a lot healthier and don’t miss having to stand outside in the cold and rain thank you Thomas for literally saving my life let him save yours too" C. Amanda
