What Is Hypnotherapy?

A form of therapy that uses the power of suggestion and guided imagery to encourage positive change within the mind. Something that we all do naturally during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep.

I will use relaxation techniques to help you reach a state where the conscious part of your mind is relaxed and the subconscious part of your mind is more open to suggestion.

Sigmund Freud (1856 - 1939) was an Austrian neurologist and the founder of psychoanalysis. Freud believed that the mind is made up of three sections.

  • The preconscious mind contains anything that could be brought to the conscious mind. 
  • The conscious mind contains all of our thoughts, feelings, memories and wishes that we are aware of at any given time. 
  • The unconscious mind is where our thoughts, memories, feelings and urges are stored and we are unaware of them working. A lot of the contents of our subconscious mind are unpleasant or unnecessary, such as addictions, anxieties and low self esteem. 
It is in the unconscious mind that most "problems" lie. The conscious mind wants to do something the unconscious mind isn't willing or ready to do. For example, you want to stop smoking or stop feeling anxious but something seems to be preventing it.

Unlike many other psychological therapies, hypnotherapy is widely considered to be a fast and effective approach to achieving beneficial change.

What Is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of relaxation and heightened awareness induced by suggestion

• Hypnosis, which is a totally natural phenomenon, is very pleasant and relaxing. Under hypnosis people can converse very easily and it is impossible for them to come to any harm. The centuries old technique of hypnosis is being used increasingly as a supplement to orthodox medicine.


• It has and continues to prove to be a valuable alternative to drugs for anesthesia and has been found to accelerate healing, accelerate learning, relieve stress, control pain and increase performance. Many athletes and sports teams use hypnosis when they are "in the zone" and hypnotherapy to improve confidence.

• All hypnosis is self-hypnosis and a hypnotist is merely a facilitator who uses techniques to help clients into hypnosis. The hypnotherapist then uses suggestion techniques to facilitate a positive change in the unconscious mind.

• It is for this reason that nobody could be hypnotised against their will. In order for any hypnotherapist or stage hypnotist to hypnotise another person full co-operation is required at all times.

What Is Neuroplasticity? How Does it Help?

Neuroplasticity is basically the brains ability to form new neuro connections thoughout life. People sometimes find it difficult to break away from old pathways to create new ones, this is known as a habit. This is particularly the case for people that experience anxiety. With hypnosis; Neil will teach you new thought processes at an unconscious level. Then you will be able to begin to process information in a new and empowered way and enable you to feel calmer. Watching the short video about neuroplasticity from Sentis will give you a good basic understanding.

Neil is an amazing therapist and I would highly recommend him to anyone with any kind of issue/problem. He has completely changed my perspective and helped me to feel at peace. The sessions do not feel time limited and you feel as though you are actually getting to the root cause of the problem which I have never experienced in therapy before. It was my first time going to hypnotherapy and Neil made me feel at ease, and actually got to know and understand me as a person.

Absolutely AmazingI actually chose Neil based on his latest review and must say was very sceptical at 1st in my opinions on Hypnosis. I was extremely freaked out by the thought of it all however my current situation outweighed my fears and worries so I decided to take the plunge. Let me firstly start off by saying I literally had one session. Like a only went to ma second session to burst with pride and enthusiasm as to how I felt and how I had taken control of my life. The 1st time I went I was literally a nervous wreck. A actually had a panic attack on the way. Niel is ace. He like actually felt like a friend and made me feel comfortable the whole time. I highly recommend and commend you Neil. He also offers you to go back if things creep back in. All included in the initial fee. I have no doubt he would have given me as many sessions as I needed. So a one off fee is actually a great idea. Don’t hesitate to book am still amazed as to how I feel.

Never been happier in my entire life!Ten Thousand Stars, I never imagined you could just press the reset and start over, without anything or anyone holding you back, all over and done in just a few sessions. From hating life and wanting to evaporate into thin air to loving and living my best life.Since meeting Neil, I've taken up kiteboarding, bought a campervan, I'm away every weekend literally all over the country, ive made so many new friends and given up needing to be in a relationship to feeling whole and weirdly get way more interest than I ever did.Work life balance is more balance than work now, it's so easy to make new friends and chat to random strangers. In fact I go out of my way to find people to chat with and before I hated even going into shops! For the first time in my life I feel completely comfortable in my own skin and own my life.It's like the brakes are off and the world a playground, I'm excited to be part of the world and taking part.An absolute pleasure meeting Neil, he's so easy to share person deep feelings with. Never rushed or discarded ridiculous thoughts and feelings from my past. I felt that Neil was 110% committed to sort things out and wouldn't stop until he had, in fact I think I actually surprised him when I said I was finished and didn't need anymore sessions.It's not cheap, but it's a lot cheaper than wasting your life in pain and suffering. Worth every penny x2, I don't think you'll find anyone better.From social anx and self lothing to buzzing about everything and anything a thousand times more energy.Cannot thank him enough, life changing experience. If you're stuck with anything and can't get passed it go see the man, just go for it! I guarantee you will not regret it.Thank you Neil! X

I highly recommend Neil to anyone who is struggling with letting go of a past negative experience. Neil is friendly, easy to talk to and very skilled at helping you to overcome the problem in very little time. After just a couple of sessions with Neil I experienced a wonderful breakthrough that helped me to see a problem I had been struggling for many years in a different way and overcome it with ease. Thank you Neil.

Neil is a lot more than just a Hypnotherapist:First, and more importantly to me, he is a great human being.80% of the session success was due to the way he was able to build trust and empathy. Something that only a very few people are able to do in a true and honest way these days.Then, as a professional, I believe I was given the right tools to tackle the issues I'm going through in my life. What we worked had been very effective, and that's what matters.

Neil has been working with me for some months now in order to eliminate an issue I worried wouldn’t be resolved. What started off as something that was an hourly occurrence subsequently became daily and then maybe every other day, a huge step for me.Neil has an approach perfect for me; direct, pragmatic and not afraid to give me the harsh reality.I would recommend Neil to anyone who feels hampered by things they turn over in their head and subsequently magnify into bigger, non existent issues.

A rewarding experience in that Neil put me at my ease and helped me look at my issues from a different perspective. After only two sessions I feel I can start to remove the blocks which are preventing me from getting the most out of my life. Thank you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What If I don't wake up?

This is not possible. If after putting someone in to a hypnotic trance, the hypnotist was to suddenly drop dead, of two things would happen;

• The client will immediately wake up or "shock awaken"

• The client will fall in to a normal sleep and awaken when he/she is ready.

There is absolutely no chance of anyone being "locked" in hypnosis forever.

Can anyone be hypnotised?

Yes, every human being can be hypnotised with the following three exceptions:

• Young children under approx. 5 years of age. 

• Severely mentally disturbed.

• People who choose not to be hypnotised.

People do go in to different depths of hypnosis but hypnotherapy can be of benefit to everyone that is wanting change. 

Will I blurt out all my secrets?

No, you will always be in full control of everything you say. There is no question of being in the power of the hypnotist and made to do things you don't want to do. 

However, anything shared by you is treat with the strictest of confidentiality.

Will I actually be asleep?

No, you will neither be asleep or awake but somewhere in the middle. You will be in a state in which all of your natural senses will be around 30% more efficient than usual. You will be fully aware of what is going on at all times. 

It feels very much like when you're having a vivid dream.

Will I do things against my will?

No, you will not. A person in hypnosis is in total control of the situation at all times. 

Although the word "sleep" is used frequently in hypnosis, a person in hypnosis is not actually asleep. In fact he/she is neither wide awake nor asleep, but somewhere in between and the unconscious mind is in a heightened state of awareness

Therefore, you will not be "made to dance around like a chicken".

Why is your consultation free?

The free constulataion is the perfect time for you and I to get to know each other; so that I can understand what you are wanting to achieve from working with me. I will use this time to ask you some questions so that I can better tailor your therapy sessions to suit your needs.

While the consultation is free of charge, a valid debit/credit card is required to make the appointment and failure to attend will incur a charge of £20.

Do I have to buy your services?

Absolutely not.

There is no point in pressuring you to work with me, this will not create a good rapport and will make the work very difficult.

How many sessions will I need?

The duration of your therapy will depend on your circumstances and the reason for which you are seeking hypnotherapy. If you are seeking hypnosis for a one-off service, I will deliver hypnotherapy in a single session of up to 2.5 hours.

However, other issues may require a longer term approach with regular sessions.

Why do you require my credit / debit card for a free appointment?

Simply, I was getting too many people booking a free consultation and not attending their appointment. Your card details will act as security for your appointment. Should you not attend the appointment without cancelling it beforehand then your card will be charged £20. If however you do attend your appointment, your card will NOT be charged. 

How long does a session last?

Initial Session 2 - 2.5 hrs

Follow up session 1.5 - 2 hrs

Stop smoking session 2 hrs

Can you help my child?

Hypnotherapy for young people and children is both safe and very effective. Children naturally use their unconscious mind and their imagination frequently, so they tend to respond very well to hypnotherapy. That being said, I will only work with children if it is something that your child wishes to do. 

Do you offer online sessions?

I certainly do. Online sessions are conducted through Zoom. You will be sent a link in your confirmation and reminder emails. 

I'm nervous about my appt...

Feeling nervous before your appointment is perfectly normal and it's ok for you to feel this way. 

Part of my job is to help you relax and this will happen naturally as part of your session and then induction into the hypnotic trance. By the end of the session you'll wonder why you felt nervous.

Can I get Hypnosis on the NHS?

Access to hypnotherapy through the NHS is very limited but you can discuss this with your healthcare provider. However it's not widely available, which means Neil and other hypnotists generally work privately. All good hypnotists will be happy to communicate with your healthcare provider if this is your wish.

How many sessions will I need? 

That is hard to answer here as everyone is different. Some people only need one session, some people need several.

With my business model, number of sessions is something you won't need to worry about as I'll work with you until your issue is resolved.  

Anxiety and depression GONE in a few sessions

     I'm a lot more level headed. This process has really helped me!

Anxiety In Brief

  • Anxiety is the symptom of an unresolved issue. Many people aren't aware of their anxiety causing issue. If this is the case with you, I can help you learn the source or overcome the cause content free; meaning that you don't need to be aware of the cause.
  • One in seven people in the UK are experiencing anxiety symptoms at any one time.
  • Anxiety is the exaggeration of a concern or fear that is disproportionate to the situation, despite how this may feel. 
  • Some people manage to control stress or anxiety, while more and more people are showing signs of over anxiety (panic attacks). This can have an impact on your sleep, mental and physical well being; thus leading to a reduced quality of life.
