My motto is that "every client leaves happier than when they arrived".

The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
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
Corporate Stress and Anxiety Management
Individual Stress and Anxiety Management
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Corporate Performance Management
Past Life Regression
Weight Loss using the Hypno-Band methodology
Complete Mind Therapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

In today's youth culture, the visible effects of life on our faces can be a bit of a drawback. Yet the cost and dangers of plastic surgery seem too extreme and just maybe a little vain. I successfully pioneered a "Hypno Botox" method based on a combination of aromatherapy, energy healing and hypnotherapy. Pain free and inexpensive.
Also, most people understand that exercise is an integral part of losing weight. However, not everyone has the ability, time or motivation to go to the gym regularly. To supplement my work as the most experienced Hypno-Band practitioner in Wakefield, I developed the Body-forming Hypnocise and HypnoJog products. Based on recent research that showed that athletes who just thought about exercising increased muscle mass up to 13% more than those who did no exercise, these hypnotic audio files take you on a virtual trip to the gym and the use of weights or a on pleasant jog through the countryside; these could help you shape your body and build your muscles.
