FIND OUT MORE ABOUT WHAT I DO
Together, we will work directly with both the conscious and unconscious mind, to find solutions, make changes and achieve your goal - quickly.
My style is goal-focused, looking at what you want to achieve.
Together we will work on identifying your goal and how you can achieve it.
I use a blended model of talking therapy that is individual to each client, using hypnotherapy alongside other tools and techniques, to make the changes you want. This is a brief therapy approach, usually requiring only a limited number of hypnotherapy sessions. We look ahead to where you want to be, and how I can help get you there quickly.
Working together, using hypnotherapy, we can achieve your goal very quickly. My approach is practical, pragmatic and common sense. I have a gentle but determined approach to help you help yourself.
Hypnotherapy online means you can access therapy from the comfort of your own home - wherever you are in the world.
All tools and techniques are just as effective online as they are face to face and many clients find it quicker and easier to relax this way. You can get comfortable in your favourite chair and enjoy all the benefits of hypnotherapy online.
Working online means I have worked with clients in Dubai, South Africa, Spain, Australia, and of course right across the UK.
All online sessions are via Zoom.

What's it all about?
What is hypnotherapy?
In hypnotherapy, we create a state of deep relaxation and focussed attention. This allows you to be more receptive to positive suggestions and open to finding new ways of doing or seeing things. This means you are best placed to achieve your goals quickly.
Hypnosis can help you understand and take control of your thoughts, your feelings, and your behaviours. Through hypnotherapy, you embrace positive and impactful changes. Using positive suggestions and guided imagery and other techniques, I can help you deal with a wide range of concerns. Together we make lasting changes. It is a pleasant and relaxing experience where your unconscious is listening as your conscious mind has a well-deserved rest.
My style of hypnotherapy
My style of hypnotherapy is solution focussed. This simply means we mainly focus on what you want to achieve. We don't look too much at the past, though of course, we will talk about that. I am more interested in getting you to where you want to be. So we use imagination and stories alongside direct positive suggestions to implement the changes you want to achieve.
It is a collaborative process. We identify what you want to accomplish, what goals you would like to achieve and how we can get you there, quickly. Sessions typically involve us chatting for a while, then we do some hypnosis, your opportunity to relax and effortlessly accept positive suggestions.
How hypnotherapy helped me
I know how well hypnotherapy works because it changed my life. Hypnotherapy has given me the confidence I needed to make positive changes in my life. For many years I have suffered with mental health issues, in particular anxiety and depression. Related to this, I have also suffered from Irritable Bowel Syndrome. These are all things I still deal with but I know I can manage them due to the hypnotherapy I have had and the techniques I have learned. It also helped me with smoking and a phobia of snakes!
A blended approach
I also combine hypnotherapy with techniques from Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). This ensures that we find the right tools for you. So we may do a few simple, but effective, NLP or CBT activities that will help you achieve your goal.
Additional resources and support
All clients have access to the member area of the website. This gives you a range of resources such as recordings and guides, to use in your own time. It can be challenging but clients find it highly rewarding and even fun!

"I attended an information session on mindfulness and hypnotherapy lead by Malcolm today and this was very beneficial. It helped me understand of how this can all help me on a daily basis. The session was really informative and I would highly recommend Malcolm to anyone that would benefit from his services."
