What Is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is something that you do naturally when you focus on a book, great sports event or film or TV event – or simply when you really concentrate and get in the zone as a Sports person or Performer – Hypnotic Trance is a natural state of mentally focussing in which makes it easy to communicate ideas to the part of the mind that helps make changes in your thoughts, your feelings and habits that may have helped you cope with Life – it is also the part of the mind that influences various physiological systems, such as the nervous system and digestive system.


When you relax suggestions tend to be more readily accepted – but only if you consider those suggestions are beneficial and acceptable to you. Contrary to myth, you CANNOT be hypnotised into doing things against your code. No one can force you into a trance or make you "do the funky chicken"!

What actually happens is that you give permission and allow yourself to be guided into relaxation and a very focussed state of awareness. So because this is a something that you are learning to do, with my help, you’re always in control.  If stage hypnotists really could make people do things against their will wouldn’t they have hypnotised a Bank Manager to give themmoney from the till and be living on Tropical Islands?

You have the power to make the beneficial changes in your life that you want utilising the power of your mind, learning alternative strategies and useful tools which are under your control.  The hypnotherapist acts as a facilitator to help you learn how to make those changes. If you can learn to drive a car or hit a ball you can learn how to use self hypnosis to your own benefit!

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis enables a very comfortable and relaxed state and you are in a state of heightened awareness and can talk to your hypnotherapist.  It is the the techniques and  language used within hypnosis and useful approaches such as Neuro Linguistic Programming (as used by Paul McKenna) that do the work which is the hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy fals under the bracket of “talking therapy” similar to and utilising many of the same methods as counselling, psychology, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, hypnoanalysis, inner child therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP).

As a professionally trained and ex Harley Street Hypnotherapist Iwill use my judgement and use the appropriate tools with your permission to help you look at a problem from a different perspective.

A lot of the healing takes place outside of hypnosis while we determine the best way to tackle your particular problem area and often people report feeling a whole lot better from even a confidential consultation because it’s therapeutic to talk and have someone listen in a confidential context - who is not involved in the problem and has a professional ear and a great deal of common sense and experience!

 Hypnotherapy for Habits Fears Phobias and Insecurities Tests Exams Public Speaking insomnia Nail biting

This hypnotherapy treatment involves relaxation, and taking in, beneficial suggestions. Hypnotherapy with NLP and other appropriate approaches works well for quitting smoking with my “Stop Smoking for Good without Weight Gain” course, work related stress, spider and needle phobia and other phobias, general fears like flying or heights, and general nervousness – public speaking, exams, driving test,  and more  – nail biting, weight control, and the many problems with insomnia - although with sleeplessness your first port of call should always be your Doctor to ensure there are no underlying physical problems.

Generally between three and four sessions are needed – for example .. recent research indicates that three sessions are best for quitting smoking to stay stopped. My sessions are 90 minutes and I charge by the session and not by the hour.

We will work together until we make progress.

 Hypnoanalysis and Reframing plus Timeline and Inner Child Healing with NLP

Hypnoanalysis, similar to psychoanalysis, aims to find and remove the underlying originating cause of any traumas, fears and phobias, well embedded problems connected with food/eating/weight or eating disorder, emotional problems, difficulties with relationships, lack of confidence, anger, or nerves while driving or flying, claustrophobia, sleeping difficulties ( only after you have checked for physiological issues with a Health Professional), Irritable Bowel Syndrome  (ditto please see a Doctor first!), low self esteem, depression, PTSD and most other psychological problems. 

Hypnoanalysis is a form  of regression therapy whereby the subconscious can safely revisit the past traumatic events and reframe them in a more useful and positive way.  Within this there are otheruseful techniques such as NLP, Timeline, Inner Child Healing. So you will be able to say: “yes to today” and “that was yesterday”.

Generally, between three to six sessions will effectively relieve symptoms.  All sessions are completely confidential and individual, one-to-one form of therapy. I am bound in the strongest terms NOT to reveal a confidence by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council and I am registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register to maintain Professional standards and approved by the Government initiative for Complementary Therapy the CNHC. I work with you using only the therapy that is right for you, and agreed with you.

Why is Hypnotherapy called a Complementary Therapy

 Hypnotherapy is a tried and tested therapeutic technique which goes back to Egyptian and Greek Dream Temples and way beyond that! It is recognised by many branches of orthodox medicine as a valuable alternative to drugs and anaesthesia, and to accelerate healing.  In 1955 the British Medical Association issued a report stating that hypnosis was a valuable medical tool.  In 1958 the American Medical Association recognised hypnosis as a viable scientific modality, and in 1962 the American Psychiatric Association recognised that hypnosis was useful to treat some psychological problems – although it was used well before that by Freud and many others!  Before that there was Mesmer – from where we get Mesmerism – who it seems, thought it was to do with magnetic energy and had no idea why what he was doing was so effective because inexplicably many people simply got better who had tried everything else!

So extraordinary was his success rate that a French Committee was formed to examine it which had on it Benjamin Franklin and a Monsieur Guillotine (who was a Doctor opposed to Exeecution and, when his opposition to the Death Penalty failed, invented a Humane Method of execution named after him!) - I really am not making it up! They drummed him out of Paris because the King didn't like the attention that he was getting from Marie Antoinette!

James Braid an English Doctor coined the term “Hypnosis” after the Greek word for sleep and realising it was not really “sleep” he tried to re – christen it as monoideism – suffice to say hypnosis stuck!

More evidence now exists from scientific randomised controlled trials of hypnotherapy than any other complementary therapy! It has been around a long time!

Hypnotherapy is an invaluable aid in reducing anxiety and stress, one of the leading causes of sickness in the modern world.  It is a very effective treatment method for a great many issues where mind relatedl factors are involved.

Hypnosis is a complementary therapy, NOT an alternative therapy.  It should never be used in place of conventional medicine for physical ailments.  However, it can be very effective when used in a complementary way to medical interventions, with the knowledge and consent of your doctor.

For example Professor LG Walker at Hull University improved the survival and recovery of Cancer and Aids patients in double bind trials where some had treatment and NO HYPNOTHERAPY and the others had identical appropriate treatments WITH HYPNOTHERAPY. The latter group were by far the greater healers and lived longer than the other group. Hypnosis also helps with Pain Relief. There is more on both these topics on my Hypno Cancer Relief and Pain Relief page

 NB: Hypnosis is widely used in pain relief, Dentists always used to have it as part of their training, but as pain is often there for a medical reason, a doctor should  be consulted before using any form of complementary therapy to treat pain.

Making a change with Hypnotherapy and NLP:

There is never a perfect time to make a change - so the why can't the perfect time be now! Hypnotism combined with NLP Hypnoanalysis and therapy works extremely well with a number of issues as outlined below and in more detail in other parts of this website. Please explore the site and call me in confidence or email me with no obligation for a free consultation - by this we can establish how I can help you in absolute confidence. I believe passionately in helping the individual to make the changes that they want with hypnosis and hypnotherapy at reasonable cost - you will find that I very much work with you to help you overcome any concerns in your life that you want to change. Hypnosis is a voluntary state and you will always be aware - contrary to popular belief - of the change work that we are doing together. Trance is something that is entirely natural - if you are entirely focussed on this page now you are in a mild trance... if you have been lost in a good book or film or have ever driven home and wondered how you got there you were probably in a trance of sorts. This is something we can utilise to help you make the changes that you want - so by this change for the better with hypnosis!

Hypnosis and NLP is one of the most effective of Complementary Therapies - and one of the oldest around. The new Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council is a new Government and NHS approved body which ensures the therapist that you consult is fully trained and regulated by a professional body. I am on the register of the CNHC and also the GHR - General Hypnotherapy Register and I am also regulated by the GHSC - General Hypnotherapy Standards council. You should always ensure that your provider is a member of an acceptable and reputable body.

Here is a broad idea of some of the hypnosis and NLP hypnotherapy treatments I offer:

There is a more comprehensive list on the Services page and testimonials from satisfied Hypnotherapy clients:



Hypno gastric band hypnosis: -

As heard on BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour recently. I offer and recommend the HypnoGastricBand. Other styles of this treatment are dubbed as the hypno band, virtual gastric band, hypnotic lap - band, Hypno slimmer, mind band, hypnotic gastric band. I have been offering this well tweaked hypno gastric band hypnosis treatment in Ipswich and Hadleigh Suffolk and Manningtree Colchester and Frinton on Sea Clacton Essex. All the gastric band hypnotherapy treatments are all basically similar and are probably the best alternative to bariatric surgery for most obese people in my opinion. I really believe that this system that I have been offering for over two years works well because I have worked with many clients over many hours and taken their feedback into account - it is therefore very thorough and not just to a rigid formula. I work with you. It represents an end to yo yo dieting and the beginning of learning to be an intelligent eater. This is a realistic alternative if you are classified "obese" with a BMI over 30.

69% of the UK population now fall into this category and we are the fattest nation in Europe - just behind the US - and obesity can be helped with this approach. Many consider this to be the best way to deal with an overeating disorder and I am happy to talk to you to see if this approach can help you. My four part weight loss course is not just about "fitting" a virtual hypnotic gastric band under hypnosis - but also addresses your eating issues, gives you motivation and helps you make the mind set changes that you need to lose weight permanently. This is not about yo yo dieting or slimming but about making you an intelligent eater - and a happier person. You don't have to be a slave to emotional eating, comfort eating, habit picking and nibbling eating or binge eating... or indeed eating disorders - anorexia or bulimia. There is much more on my Weight Loss page - please click the link.

Testimonial for the Hypno Gastric Band Hypnosis Course:

"My Gastric Band Hynotherapy was so much easier then I thought, I almost instantly felt motivated and wanted to change the way I eat. A month later I still keep a food diary, go for long walks and enjoy eating the better food! I'm so pleased with my weight loss so far, of 13 pounds after four weeks, and would recommend it to anyone'" Ms H E

"An average of Seven Pounds a week over four weeks! And I am about to start training for a Walking Marathon as my next goal. If I can lose that amount of weight with a small amount of exercise so far - what can I acheive with the training that I am going to do?" Mr R S

"Weight loss Hypnosis course"

3 part Weight Loss Hypnosis:

(for those not considered obese) - features cutting edge nutritional advice for Men and Women and the motivating power of hypnosis to deal with your issues surrounding eating - and your life. See my weight loss page for more on both the above weight loss hypnotherapy programs. You really can lose weight permanently. There is more about this revolutionary weight loss approach here: weight loss diet information

Testimonial for the "Weight Loss Hypnosis system": "I have lost three stone at a speed that was comfortable for me - and have kept it off easily. I have also discovered a love of salsa - of the Dance kind! In addition I am much more confident and have learned to be more assertive." Mrs J P

Diet Information here:



Why do you smoke? Let's address that and help you stop smoking for good with hypnosis. If you want to quit smoking with hypnotherapy, and you should, I can help you. Hypnotherapy is considered one of the best methods for stopping smoking - with minimal withdrawal - and no substituting of food for cigarettes! Even Allen Carr actually stopped with Hypnotherapy - but that would have been a very short book!

See the Quit Smoking page for more on smoking cessation. There are also up to the minute facts about smoking and why you should consider stopping smoking. Also see why Matt Damon, the Hollywood Star, called giving up smoking with Hypnotherapy: "The best decision of my life".

If you live in the Manningtree Colchester Clacton or Frinton area or the Hadleigh Ipswich Woodbridge Stowmarket Polstead Nayland or Dedham area I am close at hand to help you really quit smoking with hypnosis and hypnotherapy.

The Edge of the World

"I had Imagined that the Edge of the World was at the horizon and that a days journey was able to find it" so said Poet John Clare on going for a long walk as a child to find the edge of the world and getting lost - somehow the experience transformed him because he noted that when he did get back to familiar territory: "everything seemed so different".

In other words once he got out of his "knowledge" he began to see that the World is all our perception of it - change your mind - you change your view and your World. Trance has been used to facilitate those shifts since the beginning of time - and is a World Wide phenomenon form the sleep temples of Egypt to shamanic witch doctors and wise women to the oracle of delphi and a modern hypnotherapist - we use trance to help heal and change life for the better.
