Have you ever been so caught up in a book that you didn’t notice the hours drift by whilst you were reading? Or driven on a motorway and arrived at your destination, completely unaware of how you go there, or unable to remember part of the journey?
If you have (and almost all of us have) then you have been in a form of hypnosis.
Hypnosis occurs when we have a concentrated focus of attention from our conscious mind, that allows our subconscious to take over. It’s at that point that suggestions can be implanted to change our behaviour. If you were in that trance-like state whilst driving along the motorway, and your passenger said, “let’s stop for a drink at the next service station”, you would agree without question. When you arrived, you may wonder how you got there, but you would do it nonetheless. That is how hypnotherapy works.
The hypnotherapist deals directly with the subconscious to change learned behaviours in a way that is more effective. For example, your phobias are learned behaviours and unwanted, irrational ones at that. Hypnotherapists can help by talking directly to the subconscious and changing the way your mind thinks and deals with them, so your phobias are no longer scary.
As a fully trained and accredited hypnotherapist, who is constantly working and learning to improve my knowledge and skill sets, my approach is to get to know my clients so that I can treat them as a whole person. I try to find out as much information about you as you allow me to know, so I can discover why you smoke, or why you eat too much or any number of other issues. It is my belief that stress and anxiety are the keys to a great many of life's issues, and as such, I specialise in reducing and managing stress so that it is easier to combat all your other issues. That way, I can help you to overcome your problems in a way that ensures, with your help, they won’t come back
I came to Mark for Hypnotherapy to stop smoking and, 3 months later, touch wood, I am still smoke free.Firstly, Mark does his therapy from his own home, which make the experience less formal, and more inviting, which is what I preferred. He was very thorough, getting all my pertinent information before we proceeded and inviting me to have my last ever cigarette before we underwent the hypnotherapy. There was something about the confident way mark predicted that it would be my Last Cigarette that made me convinced it truly would be.I cannot fault Mark at all, and I highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you once again :) More...
Mark does wonders and gets results that are simply unbelievable. I was at the end of my tether with a compulsion to sneeze which had been happening for years. No medical reason had been found but it was truly debilitating. Mark managed to get rid of this in very few sessions, and now I can honestly say that I sneeze only when my body needs to, rather than when I feel stressed etc. My life has changed so much. Thank you from the bottom of my heart More...

Been a massive help with my memory and few other issues for me. Highly recommend Mark if looking for hypnotherapy treatment
I had one, 90 min hypnosis session to stop smoking and I am now free of cigarettes thanks to Mark. Feeling much better for it. It was a great session and I would recommend Mark to anyone who wants to stop smoking or for anything else. He also offers follow up sessions which is great, as some dont. Thank you Mark, already starting to see the benefits of not smoking. More...
