About me

Congratulations, on taking your first step towards changing your life for the better!

I am a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, BWRT Practitioner and Life Coach in full time practice.

By using Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, EFT & NLP I may be able to help you overcome many of the problems and anxieties that life throws at you. Just about everyone will wrestle with one or more of these problems but there is no need when hypnotherapy combined with your own willpower and motivation to seek your desired goal may help. There are many issues that could be addressed, from weight loss / control, quit smoking / vaping, addictions, alcohol abuse, marijuana, cocaine, treating fears, stage fright particularly musicians and singers, stress and anxiety, to IBS. All you need to bring is desire, belief, motivation and expectation of success. I am also a fully qualified Advanced BWRT®
(BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®) practitioner, and Founder member of The BBRS.

I see many clients for smoking, addictions and alcohol / substance abuse, in fact many of my new clients are recommendations and referrals from satisfied clients.

I offer a free initial consultation with no obligation where you can ask questions and we can discuss your needs and requirements, easing any doubts you may have and letting you make an informed choice as to whether you would like to proceed with therapy. Each subsequent session will be tailored to your individual needs and requirements. Importantly, everything is treated in total confidence as I work within strict ethical guidelines as laid down by the APHP (The Association for Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy) and also the NCH (The National Council for Hypnotherapy) and am fully covered by professional indemnity insurance.

A nice message from a happy client:

"Following a recommendation I first went to see Jim in 2012. I had suffered Emetophobia (fear of sickness) for most of my life and never considered that there was anything or anyone who could help me. The phobia was so bad that it affected my everyday life and caused me problems when going out with friends who would drink, sharing taxi's and simple tasks like getting on the bus were difficult. After meeting Jim for a consultation I immediately felt very relaxed and comfortable talking to him. After just a few sessions my Emetophobia had gone and it is no exaggeration to say that Jim had changed my life forever. This year (2015) I returned to see Jim after suffering some anxiety and again the time spent with him has been incredibly helpful. I can not thank you enough Jim."

I am a Advanced Practitioner of BWRT.
‘BWRT®’ stands for ‘BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®’, a model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. It’s a totally confidential method that does not require you to reveal your private information or personal secrets to your therapist and it is carried out in a completely conscious state. It does not use hypnosis or any concepts that might be considered mystical or unscientific - it’s completely logical, practical and down-to-earth, and for it to succeed only needs you to know what you want to change in your life. Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code. Find out more at http://www.bwrt.org

Smoking Cessation at Work

Employee Benefits – individual stop smoking assistance

Most people who smoke want to stop. I see many clients for smoking cessation and one of the questions I always ask is surprisingly simple, “are you glad you started smoking”?  You can imagine the answer is always a resounding NO! Most smokers want to stop, employers probably want them to stop too especially if you consider how many hours are lost each day for smoking breaks. Have you ever wondered what the effect of smoking (and vaping) has on your workforce and your bottom line?  A study by the Center for Economics and Business Research found the average British smoker takes four smoking breaks during the working day, lasting around 10 minutes each, as well as taking nearly an entire day more in sick leave a year than non-smokers. Clients often tell me that they waste over an hour a day on smoking breaks!

There is also the extra burden on the workforce covering for illness, if its long term there could also be the cost of hiring temporary workers to cover. Other things to consider are your corporate health insurance premiums; could they be reduced if there were fewer smokers?

Think how much each employee would gain, they would probably be healthier, and would benefit financially, 20 cigarettes a day cost around £67 per week which is around £3,494 per year.

Corporate image is vital these days, a group of smokers puffing noisily away outside the building, coupled with their smoke wafting around and the discarded cigarette butts, which are not biodegradable, doesn’t always create the most positive image.  A company who is helping their workforce to stop smoking, committing to employee health will present a more positive corporate image.

Recommended payment ratio

I don’t recommend that the company pays 100% of the fee; in order to show involvement and also commitment to the process the employee needs to make a financial contribution. This ratio is something that you as the company can establish, perhaps company 70% - employee 30%.

What Happens in a Session

The smoking habit is removed normally in one session which takes around 2 hours, the first part is working on, among other things your reasons for smoking and also reasons to stop smoking. The second part is the hypnotherapy itself. We will work on both the physical and psychological aspects of smoking. There is also a follow up session within a month if needed, this is genuinely very rarely taken up. I work on a one to one basis as I have found group sessions less effective as there are often personal considerations to take into account.
