Anthony Wilson FIHP, MHA, Cert Counselling
Anthony is the South Wales regional contact for the Hypnotherapy Association and was voted one of the top 10 hypnotherapists in Britain by the Independent and the Hypnotherapy Association.
Anthony has been in practice for 27 years having qualified as a stress management consultant and hypnotherapist after 2 years study based in Derby where he obtained a Fellowship status. Three years of counselling study followed at Swansea College under the aegis of Newport University and the B.A.C rules.
Following several traumas in his life and being a single parent to two children he is well placed to offer extended empathy and understanding of clients problems.He has treated thousands of clients from 5 - 94 years of age and particularly enjoys working with phobias, tinnitus, Gastric- Band Hypnotherapy and childhood problems.
Most sessions are recorded onto a CD, for a client's home use in between sessions. One to one consultations are the norm although Anthony is happy if clients wish to bring a friend or relation into the consulting room.
"I went to Anthony in early 2018 having been suffering with intense pain due to Rheumatoid Arthritis. This was affecting my ability to sleep and to do most activities. It was also causing depression and lack of confidence especially as I had recently had to give up a job I very much enjoyed. I had also stopped painting which is something I have always done throughout my life from childhood.
Anthony was very clear in setting out his "rules of engagement" costs and methods at the very first meeting so I knew exactly what I was expected to do if I wanted to proceed with the therapy. I found this professionalism very reassuring as hypnotherapy can seem very woolly and this was putting a framework around the process.
During the sessions Anthony was always clear as to what we were going to cover and what we hoped to achieve from it. He also provided cd recording of each and every session which I was then to use at home three times a day at the beginning and reducing to twice a day as I became more experienced.
Anthony is very empathic and has a deep experience of life that allows this empathy. I felt I could be honest with him in a way that was difficult with close friends and family members. I always felt secure with him during the hypnotherapy sessions and trusted him completely.
The hypnotherapy helped significantly with the way that I deal with the pain and with dealing with the lack of sleep that the pain can cause. Surprisingly to me (but not to Anthony) it also helped with my self confidence and my depression. I am now sleeping better than ever and should the pain wake me, I simply put on one of the tapes and it helps me relax through it and return to sleep again, I have taken up painting again and am selling my art once more and am attending an art club and a weekly art class. I listen to the library of tapes once a day - most days - as I find it still helps with the pain and is relaxing.
All in all I would recommend Anthony to anyone who has need of help with pain or depression or confidence issues. Thank you Anthony for your help and kindness." J. Farrington 2019.
"I am absolutely awed by treatment I have had with Anthony. It has turned my life around, giving me much needed confidence, a life changing experience, and money well spent. The treatment was priceless. I will ever be thankful and indebted and will ever praise his work." NS. Swansea.
"Before I went to Anthony I had become very lost in my life and felt rather helpless. I immediately felt at ease after our first session, as he made me feel hopeful towards my future. There was always a true level of care through my therapy and with the CDs at every session this aided my progression. He helped me to help myself. I am now a more confident person with the comfort of knowing I can use my CDs, if ever anything difficult should come my way." MS Carmarthen.
"I contacted Anthony because a long time inconvenience started to deteriorate. I found him friendly reassuring and professional which immediately gave me the confidence that I could overcome my problems with his help. I am very grateful for his help in arresting the decline and helping me to move forward in life. I fully recommend his work." CJ SW Wales.
"I went to Anthony with health related issues and was skeptical initially as I have a very strong personality. However I was surprised and delighted that it worked well and indeed I am now a person who has changed for the better and my life has improved immensely. It is no exaggeration to say you helped me to change my life and improve it so much. I hope this letter serves as a reaffirmation that you are appreciated by me and my family. Without your help and advice I would have killed myself and lost all I now have." R.D. Swansea.
"I am happier now than when I first came along. The Hypnosis definitely worked and you have a distinctive calmness which adds to the therapeutic effect." SM Carmarthenshire.
"Where do I begin, thank you so much for your wonderful help. It was beyond all my expectations. I do not think I could ever of 'got there' without your help. I feel like a different person who can actually begin to understand herself and feel happy and confident about almost everything... It seems much more than just a job, the help you give and the actual concern you show.You have totally transformed my life. New doors are opening for me now which I never thought possible"
"I have found Anthony Wilson exceptional in every way. He is professional, compassionate & profoundly down to Earth. And I've found him impressive in all aspects of his work. He also listens & analyses before suggesting solutions or amelioration. There's no trace of knee jerk solutions or the sense that one approach fits all. He's holistic & innovative. And kind. I'd highly recommend Mr Wilson."
Fixing my claustrophobia
"For a long time, I had a real problem with enclosed spaces, but in particular with aeroplanes. Indeed, my wife was sure that we would never holiday abroad again due to my problem. Anthony has fixed that for me. His expertise and understanding, plus his very professional approach to my situation has transformed my own approach. His guidance has enabled me to help myself and I now am able to fly without any problems. Next May, it's Australia - and it's all thanks to Anthony. I can thoroughly recommend his services to anyone out there who has any kind of phobia. Believe me, Anthony Wilson can fix you."

So often clients try to overcome their problems using various methods and eventually turn to Hypnotherapy only to realise how effective the therapy is and wished they had tried it in the first instance. A client suffering from the fear of needles and injections had looked for help in Europe and Britain in particular, all to no avail her parents were so alarmed as she was in desperate need for remedial treatment to her teeth.Her parents attended at my consulting room and after relaxing their daughter went into an hypnotic state. Subsequently we discovered the root cause of her fears which were removed using post hypnotic suggestions all of which was recorded onto CDs of her continued practice at home. She then had strengthening visualisation techniques until she was ready for the first appointment with the dentist. Her final comment was “well there was nothing to it as it did not hurt at all!" I was so pleased to have been there for her to alleviate her of the phobia for the rest of her life.
Free initial consultation when we explore the % chance of success for each case.
