What Happens When I Arrive For A Session
The treatment is possibly different to those depicted in TV shows or films. Hypnosis doesn’t require swinging watches or pendulums for efficacy. In fact, it is a way of enabling deep relaxation and a heightened state of your awareness. This opens up the possibility of you making positive changes in the subconscious. Often with my clients I don’t use hypnosis in the traditional sense, rather I use other skills and techniques that best fit because it’s always about you, what you are going to respond to best. Some techniques support issues better than others. My ability to be flexible with a variety of trainings enables me to offer this to my clients. I want the best results for you! My approach really is your solution-focussed.
Will I Feel Hypnotised?
The trance state is natural and relaxing and recognisable to you. It is about you learning to go into the relaxed and aware state and is commonly experienced by us all through the day – driving, watching a film, operating machinery, doing regular tasks – are usually done in a trance state and you will find it easy, relaxing and you are in control of it. No-one can ever put you into trance – you choose to go into that state, you are always in control and can get up and walk around, you will have your awarenesses and faculties and you have control over what you will say to me.
As for feeling hypnotised, I will guide you into this altered state with suggestions that you choose to imagine, experience and follow. You choose how relaxed and tranced you want to be. Every time is different and that will be different for everyone. You might be surprised at how easy and nice it is – as well as recognisable. You do enter this state regularly and as a hypnotherapist I can help you access it in a focused way.
I Don’t Think I Can Be Hypnotised
It’s a myth that any hypnotist can ‘put you under’ in fact, you choose to be hypnotised. Your unconscious mind is very used to this altered trance state which it enters into many times throughout the day. It is a very natural, relaxing state to be in. Because you enter into this state all the time, you can choose just how relaxed and deep you wish to go. You will be in control at all times. So, yes, you can enter into a hypnotic state, I will guide you and if you can follow an instruction and wish to follow my instructions then yes, you will enter that hypnotic state successfully so change work can begin.
Can You Make Me Do Things I Don’t Want To, or Make Me Say Things I don’t Want To?
You will be in control and you can choose to say or do things you choose to. It’s an activity that works only on participants willing to do it – after all it is your unconscious mind. If you invite it to follow the instructions then it’s easy. So, in that respect you will be fully in control at all times. It is a myth that hypnotists have control over you. None ever does anything they wouldn’t choose to do. You will be sitting comfortable in a chair and I will be guiding your unconscious mind to a learning whereby positive change can take place. I will never suggest anything that would be inappropriate or that could be taken on that would compromise you in any way.
Are You Experienced and Will It Work?
Yes, I am very experienced with over 5 years seeing therapy clients and over 20 years and over 10,000 hrs in the entertainment and performing industry for this wanting Speaking and Confidence coaching it is a significant combination of experiences. I am also highly qualified in my field with many clients coming to me in both London and Manchester (or using the Skype option). Although no one can offer you a guarantee, it would be unethical, most people are very happy with their results!

I trained in TFT – Thought Field Therapy (the father of EFT if you may have heard of that and it is a tapping technique to meridians and energy highways of the body) I trained with Sean Quigley in Thought Field Therapy Advance Voice Technology Techniques, and many more disciplines however these core aspects provide me with the results I am able to achieve.
I am also a registered Hypnotherapist CNHC and MNCH, a member of the professional standards authority and I abide by their codes of conduct.
