Years ago when I booked to see a Hypnotherapist for the first time, I feared hypnotherapy, but at the same time was sceptical of it really working. I had previously seen a psychoanalyst and the treatment hadn’t fully worked because I was still having panic attacks. After 10 sessions of Hypnotherapy, my panic attacks suddenly disappeared and I was shocked the first time that the panic attack didn’t hit me. Eventually, I wasn’t waiting for a panic attack to happen again, the feelings that had caused these had been released by hypnosis.
I remember when seeing the Hypnotherapist, that he had said if only I would let my conscious mind get out of the way my treatment would work quicker. Some part of me was trying to analyse how the Hypnotherapy was working. Probably because I had been brought up with a scientific mind.
Since then I have looked at a scientific way of proving that Hypnosis works and came up with a couple of measures.
If I sit comfortably in a chair and go into a state of hypnosis. I can hit the state of hypnosis by just closing my eyes, as I have been there that many times. I then suggest to myself that my arm is raising gradually, I may imagine that a ballon is tied to my arm. Eventually, my arm starts to rise just like a rachet, rather than me consciously lifting my arm. It would be hard for anybody to raise their arm this slowly and the instructions for the arm raising come from the subconscious rather than the conscious mind.
If you could imagine wanting to achieve a particular goal, if you put the suggestions into your subconscious mind, they are eventually achieved over time. The arm levitation is a quick achievement of a goal, that is visible consciously, other goals may take much longer and it is sometimes difficult for people to see the cause and effect.
The number of times I have heard clients who have come to see me say that they are really relaxed. But years ago when I used to connect them up to a biofeedback machine, I used to see their heartbeat on a graph gradually drop from 80 bpm to 60 bpm. Many people just aren’t as relaxed as they would like to think they are. I thought it was pretty conclusive evidence to show clients, that Hypnotherapy wasn’t all in their minds on a graph. The only issue was the uncomfortable feeling of the clamps on their fingers.

A number of years ago a client came to see me, because they were concerned about having a knee operation while under a local anaesthetic. I did one session of Hypnotherapy. They listened daily to the tailor-made recording I provided on a CD and successfully had the operation. The client was having another knee operation in the future. The CD could be used again in the future for reassurance.
Hypnotherapy is no quick fix solution. Use the tailor-made Hypnotherapy recording daily for a month to ensure maximum effects from the session.
Fear phobia of needles
When a client contacted me about a fear of needles. I was more than confident to help with the issue due to the success of the client above. This was a referral from a different customer.
To start with I find out a little more about you phobia whatever it is.
I then relax you into a deep state of trance. Guided visualisation and other techniques are used to guide you into a deep state of trance. Once in a deep state of Hypnosis, positive affirmations are made into your subconscious mind.
Tailor made recording
The Hypnotherapy session is recorded straight onto a CD for you to take away. It can take anything from 1 to 5 sessions to help you with a goal. Daily use of the tailor-made Hypnotherapy recording is necessary for you to get maximum effects from Hypnotherapy. I recommend at least a monthly session until the goal is achieved.
By learning how to relax deeply using Hypnosis. Negative experiences from your past that caused this phobia is released by your subconscious mind. You are able to revaluate these negative experiences as an older wiser person and come to terms with them.
Because you are in a deep state of Hypnosis, positive suggestions made into your subconscious mind have a greater effect on you.
Can be changed depending on your goal. Positive statements are made, rather than negative ones that refocus you on the phobia. If I said to you “Don’t think about pink elephants” what happens? Rather than saying you “you aren’t scared of injections”, I would phrase “You are confidently having injections.
Positive statements over time change beliefs and behaviours.
If you would like a 15-minute free telephone consultation. Give me a ring on (0044) 01909 282435. One to one sessions can be arranged in Sheffield. If you live elsewhere I can do a telephone consultation and then send you a tailor-made Mp3 download. I have worked with people as far away as Switzerland and the USA.

I always tell my clients on the initial contact, how many sessions it can take and what they need to do to achieve results with Hypnotherapy. It can take from 1 to 5 sessions of Hypnotherapy and daily use of a tailor-made Hypnotherapy recording, between sessions. I tend to see clients monthly, but more frequent sessions can be booked if desired.
How long have you smoked? People who are desperate to stop smoking, often shift that behaviour to another addiction. If you stop smoking without dealing with the feelings that made you smoke in the first place, then you are liable to replace that behaviour with overeating. Overeating can be as damaging to the health as smoking.
Too often people stop smoking with one session of Hypnotherapy, which leads to the change of addiction or smoking again the next time they have a crisis in their life. If you truly want to stop smoking you need to use the tool of Hypnosis properly, so that you gradually quit smoking.
Tailor made Hypnotherapy recording
By using a tailor-made Hypnotherapy session after seeing a professional Hypnotherapist on a daily basis. You release the feelings that contribute to the smoking addiction and gradually release them so that you don’t take on another negative behaviour. By gradually reducing smoking, you learn to control your emotions and other areas of your life.
Weight loss Hypnotherapy
Again I am going to ask you how long you have been overweight? Setting too high an expectation is going to result in failure. Have you failed to lose weight in the past by another method? I wouldn’t recommend losing more than a couple of pounds a week, as you have to trick the mind into believing your new body image. The subconscious mind doesn’t like a big change and will resist you losing weight.
People go to weight loss classes for years trying to lose weight. This can be an expensive process, as there is a weekly charge, you are dependent on others and there is also the possibility of replacement type meals being promoted.
Hypnotherapy is going to teach you to release the feelings that crave food. Negative experiences that have caused you to become overweight will be released by the subconscious mind, so that you can face them as an older wiser person. You are going to have more focus on saying the right things to yourself, so that you change behaviours. Eating better food that promotes weight loss. Exercising so that you burn off excess calories and feel better about yourself.
Beneath all of this, your work life balance will be harmonised.
I was suffering from panic attacks when I first went to see a Hypnotherapist back in the early 1990s. It probably took me about six months to fully recover, the panic attacks disappearing after a couple of months. But stress had gradually built up in my life over the last 8 years and a dramatic change when working in London set off the panic attacks.
If you are business get me to help reduce stress in your organisation to improve productivity and profits, I can tailor make stress management courses for your organisation’s needs. If there is a group of you in the Rotherham or Sheffield area, let me come to you to help you work on your goal. If you are an individual see me on a one to one basis.
If you live elsewhere in the world I can do a telephone consultation and provide you with a tailor-made recording via Mp3 download. Or you can purchase one of my off the shelf Mp3 downloads on my website shop.

Each of my clients is an individual, it makes my life interesting. No case is the same. A client came to see me because birds especially pigeons were making them overreact. If they were out eating outside at a cafe somewhere and a bird came too close. The bird would make them feel uncomfortable and they would end up screaming. They were going down to London in a few days and we’re going to visit Trafalgar square which was full of pigeons.
I quickly got word back that the session had already started to have some effect on them. They hadn’t overreacted when visiting Trafalgar Sq. in London. Hypnotherapy isn’t a quick fix solution, it can take 1 to 5 sessions to resolve an issue. But on top of that, I provide you with a tailor-made Hypnotherapy session on CD to take away. You need to use the CD daily to get maximum effect out of it.
I have since heard that the client has conquered their fear of birds and has referred more clients on to me.
Fear or Phobia
Whatever your fear or phobia, to start with each session is preceded by a 15-minute chat about the issue. This enables me to direct your subconscious mind while under Hypnosis. I then guide you into a deep state of Hypnosis using language and visualisation.
Once in a deep state of Hypnosis, I suggest the positive outcome you are looking for. Hypnosis is like a light sleep that you may have one lazy afternoon, while on holiday. I extend this sleep but also use it to your benefit. All Hypnosis is self-hypnosis, I am the guide and you follow along.
Any negative memories from your past that are contributing to your fear are gradually released by your subconscious mind to reevaluate and store back in a more healthy way. Positive suggestions implanted while in Hypnosis change behaviours and beliefs.
Group sessions Sheffield and Rotherham
I can do one to one Hypnotherapy sessions in Dinnington or travel further afield to Sheffield or Rotherham to conduct group Hypnotherapy sessions. If you live further afield I can do telephone consultations.
You can ring me on (0044) 01909 282435.

Hypnotherapy is a naturally occurring state of mind that we all experience on a daily basis. Primarily just before we go to sleep at night and first thing when we wake up in a morning. You may also drop into the state of Hypnosis while dozing in the chair on a Sunday afternoon or some other restful time. It’s a very light sleep where you are half awake and at sleep at the same time.
Driving a car or operating machinery
The only time it is dangerous to use Hypnosis is while driving a car or operating machinery. I always warn clients about this each time they come to see me and at the start of all my online downloads. If you were to listen to a recording while driving car, you could suddenly become very relaxed and lose your focus of attention on the road ahead of you. This could then result in an accident. The best time to listen to a Hypnotherapy recording. Is in a quiet comfortable place, where you will be undisturbed for the length of the sessions.
Hitler versus Jesus
Going back to the dangers of Hypnosis. Both of these people used a form of mass Hypnosis. One for the good of man kind. The other for all the wrong reasons. Like anything in life tools can be used for both positive and negative outcomes. This is a very extreme dichotomy.
I remember once talking to a local mental health unit in my local Town about working with their clients. They were really concerned about clients going into a psychosis while under Hypnosis. I know from my own experiences I had exhausted all that the NHS had to offer me and I didn’t want to use medication. Even my doctor was very skeptical of me using Hypnotherapy, but said to carry on if I thought it was helping me. If you feel necessary discuss with your doctor before seeing a Hypnotherapist, but most doctors won’t want to recommend a Hypnotherapist. Local Health practices seem happy to make money from Hypnotherapists advertising their services on their appointment cards, but that is as far as it goes.
There seem to be two dichotomies when it comes to peoples views on Hypnosis. Those who think it they can be made to do something with no effort on their own part, because of stage shows. The others who fear doing something against their will, which isn’t possible. Hypnotherapy takes time and daily use of a tailor made recording, that professional Hypnotherapists should provide you with after each session. It’s not a quick fix solution.
There have been quite a few negative films made about Hypnosis. For instance. Telly Savalas played an evil Hypnotist in a Bond film. “On Her Majestys secret service”. No wonder people get the wrong impression of hypnosis.
Hypnosis expands the state of mind you go into last thing at night and first thing in a morning, by a skilled Hypnotherapist guiding you into a deep trance like state using language. Once in a deep trance like state of mind positive suggestions are made into your subconscious mind. Unless the session is recorded onto a CD for you to take away you will be coming back to see the Hypnotherapist for years to attain goals. It is so important to listen to the tailor made session you are given after each Hypnotherapy session on a daily basis. I see clients monthly and it takes between 1 to 5 sessions to help clients achieve a goal.
The more secure you feel with Hypnosis, the deeper you will go into trance. There is going to be some apprehension the first time you use Hypnosis, but once you have gotten over this initial hurdle, you will find yourself letting go the more you use Hypnotherapy. It’s a little bit like abseiling when you go over the cliff edge, but once you feel the security of the rope, you enjoy the experience.
If it was suggested to do something that goes against your belief’s and values, it would immediately bring you out of a trance.
Can I get stuck in Hypnosis?
We all wake up in the morning after sleep. The same with Hypnosis, you can’t get stuck in it, you would open your eyes when you are ready to. You would probably get bored of just being in a trance and decide to open your eyes. I always tell people that they can open their eyes and move anytime they choose at the start of my sessions. If you ever feel in danger while under trance, you will open your eyes and ensure your safety and survival above anything else. A loud bang in the room our outside would make you jump out of the Hypnotic state.
Choosing an Hypnotherapist
I always recommend that you choose a Hypnotherapist by recommendation from somebody you know. Trust that your subconscious mind will direct you to a good Hypnotherapist.
All the best
Ensuring clients achieve goals is as important for me as making money. It has to be a win-win. In order to ensure that this is the case, I offer a free 15-minute consultation on the telephone. I always put the small print up front with clients, to ensure they know what they need to do in order to achieve their outcome. This is a partnership and I can only help you to succeed if you are willing to do your homework. The homework is pleasant and should also help you to feel good and refreshed.
I would rather turn a client away from day one, rather than get bad publicity from a client who wasn’t committed to their goal in the first place. I can usually determine this in the initial free consultation.
How many sessions?
It can take anything from 1 to 5 sessions to help clients achieve their goals. But the most important thing, other than coming to see me, is that you play the tailor-made Hypnotherapy recording daily. Between sessions.
Tailor-made recording on CD
After each Hypnotherapy session, I provide the 30-minute Hypnotherapy session straight onto a CD for you to take away. Years ago when I went to see a Hypnotherapist, I saw them every week. I believe that a monthly session is adequate enough and that keeps the costs down for you. But it is imperative for you to play the tailor-made Hypnotherapy recording daily between sessions, to achieve sustainable results.
People may occasionally miss playing the tailor-made recording daily. However from my own experiences when I was suffering from panic attacks, I was willing to listen to the recording twice a day on a bad day. If you have a tight schedule, listening to the recording last thing at night before you go to sleep is adequate.
I had a client come to see me who wanted to stop smoking. They listened to it in bed at night and their wife who didn’t see me, also stopped smoking at the same time. This was 4 years ago.
Please give me a ring if you are ready to go ahead with achieving your goal face to face in Sheffield.
Contact me on 01909 282435
If you don’t live close to Sheffield, I can do a telephone consultation and then send you a tailor-made Hypnotherapy recording via Mp3 download link. I have worked with clients as far away as Switzerland and America. Alternately purchase a Hypnotherapy Mp3 download in my shop.
I look forward to hearing from you.
If you have a common goal to achieve, I can work with groups of 2 to 10 people.
Stopping smoking and Weight loss
I can either come to your home or find a suitable local venue to use. Give me a ring on 01909 282435 to discuss further.
To start with we will have a 10/15 minute group talk on the goal you are trying to achieve. Once we have looked at the beliefs blocking you from achieving your goal. I will then relax you into a deep trance using Hypnotherapy and Visualisation exercises. Once in a deep state of trance. Positive suggestions will be made deep into your subconscious mind.
Tailor-made Hypnotherapy recording
After each group Hypnosis session, you will be provided with the tailor-made recording via a Mp3 download link. It is so important to listen to this tailor-made Hypnotherapy recording daily between sessions. Repetition is so important with Hypnotherapy, there are no quick fixes and Hypnotist stage shows are tricking people into false beliefs about Hypnotherapy.
Repetition with Hypnotherapy is so important. The more that you listen to the tailor-made recording, the deeper you will fall into Hypnosis. The more you fall into Hypnosis the more the positive suggestions will be acted upon by your subconscious mind. You will gradually change your beliefs and behaviours and will attain your ideal weight or become a non-smoker.
I recommend a monthly Hypnotherapy session, however daily use of the tailor-made Hypnotherapy recording is important to get maximum effects. It could take anything from 1 to 10 sessions to achieve your goal dependent on the level of your issue.
One of the benefits of group Hypnotherapy to quit smoking or attain your ideal weight is that you can support each other between sessions, especially if friends.
These may work for some people losing weight, but it may take years for many people. The cost can be excessive when added up. Break the boom-bust cycle for good using Hypnotherapy.
All too often people who stop smoking either transfer the behaviour to overeating or dependency on another crutch, such as nicotine replacement products or vaporisers. These nicotine replacement products cost and can also be addictive to some degree or people stop using them and start smoking again. Stop smoking for good with Hypnotherapy with no side effects.
One to one
You may not feel confident to deal with issues with other people in attendance and I do cater for people dealing with the goal on their own. These sessions allow me to tailor make them more to you as an individual and can result in quicker effects.

I always provide a tailor-made Hypnotherapy recording on CD after each session and a few days later drop the client an email to ensure they know how to get the best results out of the recording. A few weeks later I will then contact the client to ensure everything is OK. I don’t pressurise clients to come back, I let them come back to me in their own time.
A few months ago I bumped into a client who came to see me 4 years ago and they told me that they hadn’t smoked since. This was in a public venue and they were happy that other people knew about this. Good for word of mouth.
Yesterday I bumped into the same client, who was out with the wife. They went even further and said that the wife listened to the same recording in bed, as they were going to sleep. The wife also stopped smoking at the same time.
Group sessions for weight loss
The customer now wants to come back and see me to reduce their weight and have asked if the wife can come at the same time. I have no problems working with more than one person working on the same goal. I have previously worked with a group of five ladies in Worksop looking to lose weight.
I can work with anybody in the world who can speak English, you don’t need to be in Sheffield. I can do the consultation over the telephone and drop you a tailor-made Hypnotherapy recording via mp3 download link.

I am looking at developing a new set of Mp3 downloads, to compliment my Hypnotherapy and self-talk recordings. These Mp3 downloads are going to combine the concept of Hypnotherapy and self-talk downloads.
These recordings are to be used during the night.
There will be a 20-minute Hypnotherapy session, to put you into a positive state of mind and carry you over into a sleep state. If you need to wake up in the night, your safety will be paramount.
There will then be positive suggestions made in both “I” and “You. The Positive affirmation statements will repeat on a loop for the night, until it is time to wake up in the morning.
I am currently testing these recordings on myself and will fine tune to get the right combination of background music and self-talk affirmations. Your subconscious mind is absorbing information while asleep, so why not spend 8 hours programming yourself with the most positive suggestions possible.
Many people say they are short of time to spend listening to self-talk or Hypnotherapy recordings. There is no excuse not to listen to these sleep programming recordings while asleep at night. Add to your mobile phone and play quietly in the background.
Confidence at the dentist
Confidence public speaking
What is the first Sleep programming Mp3 download, would you like to add to the shop on my Hypnotherapy site?

Recently I saw an article about how a number of people had won a dieting competition, but years later were back up to their original weight. There were a number of pictures of these individuals when they became slimming champions and how they now look. Today another so called “expert” reckons that it is better to Yo-yo diet than not at all. I think that is a very negative attitude and not the right attitude to put in people’s minds. This inspired me to write this article today.
Too often I have seen people losing weight, but then putting it on again months later. Diet classes seem to have sprung up all over the place where I live in Anston and Dinnington and may work for some. Diet classes may help many but also leave many frustrated. Feeling bad about your body image isn’t a good way to motivate you in the long term.
Diet classes seem to be a good stream of income for those who run them. £5 a person for 52 weeks a year is £250. Diet classes may seem cheap at £5 a class versus £60 for an Hypnotherapy session. But let us say on average it takes 3 sessions of Hypnotherapy to help you at £180. Diet classes become very expensive in the long run.
Some of these national diet classes are selling expensive weight loss meals to individuals as well, rather than teaching you simple and effective diets to lose weight.
I suspect diet classes are happy for their members not to be too successful at attaining their ideal weight, as it is the loss of an income stream. Personally, I like people to advance as quickly as possible even though I have lost a revenue stream.
Newtons third law
For every action, there is an equal an opposite reaction. Forcing yourself to do something in the short time may work, but in the longer term, you will be back where you started. I am reluctant to stop people smoking in one session, as in most cases they will substitute smoking for another behaviour and add weight instead. Weight loss of 2lbs a week is the most effective for long-term sustainable weight loss.
Gastric band hypnotherapy
I have always said that this is another fad, that people jump onto hoping for a quick fix solution. However, a customer once came to see me after having had a real gastric band fitted because they started to put weight on after a time. They were forcing food down using a blender. After three sessions of Hypnotherapy, they were able to release the air from their gastric band and eat normally again as they were losing weight naturally.
How would Hypnotherapy work? You can see me face to face in Sheffield.
Everybody is an individual with me. So the first part of any one to one Hypnotherapy session is finding out more about your circumstances.
You are then relaxed into a deep state of Hypnosis using language and guided meditations. Once in a deep state of Hypnosis positive suggestions are made into your subconscious mind.
The 2nd most important thing is to be provided with a tailor made Hypnotherapy session after each session of Hypnotherapy. It is so important to use this recording daily between sessions. I recommend a monthly repeat session, it can take from 1 to 5 sessions to be in complete control of your weight.
Learning to relax is a key essential to losing weight. As you relax daily using the tailor made Hypnotherapy recording, you will start to carry that feeling over into your daily life.
As you learn to relax correctly you will start to find negative feeling about your past being released by your subconscious mind. As you release negative memories from your past, you will face these as an older wiser person. You may have failed a number of times in the past to lose weight. Your childhood programming maybe a reason why you overeat. Or you may overeat due to feelings of low self-esteem or boredom. If the negative feelings aren’t inside you, they can’t trigger you to overeat.
Positive suggestions made while in a deep state of Hypnosis will have a greater effect on your subconscious mind. Your beliefs and behaviours will gradually change. The daily repetition is so important. Positive suggestions can be made to help you become more motivated to exercise regularly.
Positive suggestions can also be made so that you eat smaller portions and also so that you choose food more wisely. It isn’t necessary to buy expensive diet replacement meals. You can eat sensibly and have decent size portions that fill you with the right nutrients to have more energy.
You may have to change your lifestyle to accommodate your weight loss. But you will find yourself becoming more assertive and finding balance in your life. You may have to make an odd drastic change in your life, if that part of your life isn’t supporting you, you will find the confidence to do this if necessary.
Support and group
One good thing about diet classes is the support network. I can achieve this by seeing groups of 10 ladies in Sheffield, Rotherham and Worksop and doing a tailor made session for the group. It will work a little like one to one Hypnotherapy, but be a little diluted down. After the session you will all be provided with a tailor made Hypnotherapy session via a Mp3 download link. Rather than having to go to diet classes for years on end, 10 group sessions of Hypnotherapy would be an absolute maximum for you.
I can work with groups in the Dinnington area or can even visit you in South Yorkshire or North Nottinghamshire at a suitable venue.
Further afield and international.
