About me

Finding it confusing searching for the right hypnotherapist? I'm an Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist that's able to test and demonstrate to every client that they are in the correct state of hypnosis for their particular issue.This is done at the beginning of the session and right the way through their session. I also test and demonstrate that all the changes that clients desire can take place within their subconscious mind and demonstrate this all the way through their session. My clients inform me that this is what gives them the sense of certainty that they've been searching for. Don't take chances Real Hypnotherapy is fantastic, very effective and can give you immediate changes.

Do you really want to get right

On a daily basis, I have clients prepared to travel for hours from all over the country to use my hypnotherapy service, most weeks clients come to me from Manchester,

Real Skill

It's having a thorough understanding of the different states of hypnosis that allows me to work with precision, I'm one of the few that's able to work in all the different states of hypnosis. As a hypnotherapist, I need to know all the rules of the mind(over 300) and be able to inform clients on how to make their session 100% successful that you can be sure sets me apart from the rest.

My focus has been on being a specialist in removing the most troublesome of conditions where all other therapies have failed.

All clients are treated in a totally unique way, you won't find a one size fits all approach in my therapy practice.You're unique, your issue is unique and this is why every part of your session will be unique to you.I've taken the time to learn how to deliver suggestions that are unique to you and your issue by having a full understanding of the rules of the mind and hypnotic language.

What's real hypnotherapy?

Here are some of the most basic things that all properly trained hypnotherapists must know.

1, Hypnosis, of course, this what you're expecting when you go for hypnotherapy. Every properly trained hypnotherapist will be able to name all the different states of hypnosis. Here's why this is important, there's only one state of hypnosis where all the changes can take place. This state has two specific tests to make sure the client is in this state, it's paramount that this is tested for. There's is another state of hypnosis where only some changes can take place if a client is in this state of hypnosis at best the session will only give slight temporary change. There's is no specific test for this state of hypnosis so any therapist can only use guess work often stating they look like they're in hypnosis. There are umpteen so-called indications a person is in hypnosis none are accurate in any way. Again a client must be tested to make sure they're in hypnosis, remember, you want the test and demonstrated to that you're in the correct state of hypnosis. Please don't accept, yes you were in hypnosis ask for the test!

2, Suggestions, this is anything that a hypnotherapist says to a client once they've gone into hypnosis. Every suggestion must be unique to the client being worked on. There are several indications that a client is able to allow the suggestions to be effective, this indication should be monitored all the way through the client's session. Although a client can be monitored through the session to make sure they're accepting the changes there's only one official test that must take place to demonstrate to the client that their subconscious mind is accepting the changes. It's important a client asks for this test to be demonstrated to them.

3, Hypnotic language, some of the rules of the mind dictate what words can be used to bring about changes in the subconscious mind. You can't use any old word when communicating with the subconscious mind if you do no changes take place. I've seen umpteen scripts used by some therapists that are full of incorrect hypnotic language, this, in my opinion, renders these scripts useless. The only way to get this right is to master the hypnotic language which of course takes time and correct training. Remember, precise hypnotic suggestions is the best way to bring about changes for a client.

4, Induction, this is what is used to guide a person into hypnosis. The ideal induction must have testing built into it and be suitable for the client. 90% of the time I use the same induction, this induction is the only induction that can guide a person into all the different states of hypnosis. This induction took me over eighteen months to truly master and in my opinion, is what I rely on to allow me and my clients to get the positive changes.


Real Hypnotherapy is located in the center of Chorley and within easy reach of the M61 & M6 motorways. The therapy practice is private and discreet at the same time you won't feel secluded either. There is ample safe parking at the rear on the long stay car parks and well within walking distance. At Real Hypnotherapy, the aim is to make sure every client feels as comfortable as possible and there's ample space in the private waiting room.

Training, qualifications & experience

Real Hypnotherapy

My focus has been on making sure that I have the correct techniques and I like to point out that there can only ever be one most efficient best technique in any subject. I'm passionate about working with hypnosis, real hypnotherapy is about working exclusively with the subconscious mind and done properly there can't be much need for any other therapy(conscious mind therapies)when dealing with the subconscious mind.

Best techniques

In the beginning real hypnotherapy was created and developed by the true masters many years ago. It was their techniques that made hypnotherapy effective and powerful. I feel it's important to remain true to these tried and tested techniques.


I'm one of the few hypnotherapists that have been trained in more than one approach.My grounding is in both indirect hypnotherapy and direct hypnotherapy, this allows me to adapt to each client as well as each different issue creating a much more precise result.


I'm a registered hypnotherapist within this country but most of the training that I've done was abroad, this meant that I was allowed to apply for registration abroad as well in this country. After applying and passing the necessary examinations I was accepted and I'm now fully registered abroad which is of a much higher standard to obtain.

Get a genuine hypnotherapist

I'm passionate about hypnotherapy I work exclusively with hypnosis believing that done properly there can't be much need for any other form of therapy. No permanent changes can take place using conscious therapy because the conscious mind does not have the ability to change anybody. This is why I started the company Real Hypnotherapy to help ensure that hypnosis and hypnotherapy stay pure and thus very effective.

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

The quality of a hypnotherapist can only be measured by the results they're getting with clients. I've worked hard to stay focused on being very effective at hypnotherapy. I believe you have to specialize in a chosen area of hypnotherapy, here are the areas that I work mostly in.

Additional information


You can be sure your session will be very thorough and every client is tested to make sure they are in the correct state of hypnosis and their mind is set up accept the changes at the subconscious level. Being able to demonstrate to every client that they are in hypnosis gives a client an all-important sense of certainty.Being able to test for every single state of hypnosis is in my opinion just one measure that shows a hypnotherapist is working with a high skill level It's this approach that will keep your sessions to the minimum amount.

Your initial consultation will give us both the best idea of the process needed.

All drink and drug habits are designed to be done in a single session, this is due to the nature of how the subconscious mind deals with drink and drugs.

Cocaine addiction is designed to be done in a single session, this is due to the nature of how the subconscious mind deals with drugs.

Smoking cessation is designed to be done in a single session, this is due to the nature of how the subconscious mind deals with poison.

Any emotional issue like anxiety or anger can be dealt with in a single session but this depends on the severity and how many different issues you have.

Weight loss requires separate work for each aspect of weight loss you may require help with.

Please contact me for individual prices.
