Anxiety Specialist: Professional Hypnotherapy & Performance Coaching
The Process Begins with You:
Struggling with ANXIETY issues? Ready for that to change?
Find that you crack under pressure? Wilt under the spot light? Have stage fright? Nerves always get the better of you?
Whether it’s at Work, on the Sports field, in Social settings, or in the Bed Room, Performance ANXIETY issues can affect anyone, at any time of their life.
You may have tried breathing or distraction techniques, you may have tried grounding or various talk therapies and only found limited or no success, so you may be wondering: “Is anything going to work for me?”
You may even be starting to believe that: “It’s just who I am.” Or “I can’t control it!”
Many of my previous clients have told me how they felt like this, and how they’d just accepted, ‘it is what it is’. They’d given up on change, and simply expected Anxiety to be a big part of their every day lives. Even on the good days some would be in a constant state of worry that it would ‘show up’ and ruin things.
In fact one previous clients summed things up well when she said she was always; Anxious about ANXIETY.
It’s those thoughts and fears which lead to Avoidance Strategies. To not going out, to not showing up for that interview, to not competing, to not talking to people, to not expressing your talents, to limiting your life, limiting your opportunity for enjoyment and success.
I don’t need to tell you how some people can spend a whole lifetime stuck in that anxiety > failure > shame > low self worth > anger > more anxiety cycle, and end up adopting unhealthy coping mechanisms, fueling addictions and creating avoidance strategies just to get through life.
But, that’s NOT you? Right?
I’ve spent years Helping people to overcome their fears, to solve their underlying stress, recover from those emotional wounds and traumas, build inner confidence and discover how amazing their life can be.
It’s not only about empowering You with the clarity and the Inner Confidence to enjoy life fully, but also to give you the skill set and mindset so that Performance Anxiety is never a problem for you again.

BIO: “As a child I suffered with a severe stutter (stammer) which lasted into my teens. It left me deeply frustrated, struggling to communicate my emotions, and also the victim of bullying and teasing.
The emotional self control and the mind state management techniques, which I learned, enabled me to overcome my speech impediment and to conquer my anxiety. I credit those early life lessons with helping me to remain calm and composed throughout many other challenging situations in my life since.
The ability to remain Calm is a superpower. Calm certainty is the antidote to Anxiety.
As a husband of over twenty years and a parent to two amazing daughters I understand how family dynamics and relationships are tested by time and changing roles.
As a Business Manager for over two decades, responsible for teams of people achieving multi-million pound turnovers, so I understand ‘targets’, burnout and anxiety inducing work-place pressure.
I also understand how in a crisis, it’s the Calmest Mind which best navigates the Storm.
In my role as a Hypnotist, I’ve spent years seeking out and training with the best therapists in the world. I have attained diplomas in Clinical Hypnosis and in Professional Hypnotherapy, as well as certifications in Sexual Freedom Hypnosis, Neo-Ericksonian Hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming. I have also trained and certified in a number of other modalities including; Mindful Coaching, Emotional Freedom Technique, Dialectic Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy.”
Whatever Storm you’re facing in life; consider how your world would change for the better if you had the ability to choose your mood, manage your emotions and always remain Calm in the face of challenge? Ready to find out? Let’s talk.

Delivering Online hypnotherapy and clinical hypnosis is safe, effective and more efficient for my clients. Geography should not be a barrier to you getting the support you need with your Performance Anxieties.
How many Online Hypnotherapy sessions will I need?
The amount of online hypnotherapy sessions you’ll require varies depending on the exact nature and severity of the issue. As a guide: for effective, long lasting change, most Performance Anxiety problems can be resolved and GONE in under 6 sessions. All plans are tailored specifically to fit your individual needs.
Real, positive change can (and often does) happen from the very first session.
What Happens during a Performance Anxiety hypnotherapy session?
All online hypnotherapy sessions are like a collaborative conversation. We’ll talk about your thoughts, feelings, behavior and emotions and help you gain a deeper understanding of what’s driving them. Performance Anxiety Sessions may also contain processes such as visualization, guided imagery, emotional freedom technique and mindful breathing practice.
Can I be Hypnotized?
Yes. Hypnosis is a skill we can all access, practice and develop. It involves you utilizing and developing your natural ability to focus and engage your imagination. It’s also something you can become better and better at through practice.
What's Hypnosis actually like?
People report differing sensations as it’s an individual experience. You may at times feel like you’re floating on a cloud, at other times you may feel as though you’re deeply relaxed, while at at other times you may not be consciously aware of anything at all. Hypnosis is about communicating with your subconscious or unconscious mind, the back of your mind, those deep parts of your psyche. Not being able to consciously notice or feel what’s happening doesn’t mean that deep change isn’t occurring. Trust the process and trust your unconscious mind to deliver what’s right for you.
Is it Mind Control?
No, and also Yes. It’s about You taking control of your own mind, and learning to control those thoughts, sensations and emotions which may currently feel out of control or beyond your control.
Ask yourself this; how in control do you currently feel? Would you like to have more control of your emotions, your thoughts, or your habits?
Does Hypnotherapy work for Depression?
Yes. Relaxation and the ability to reduce stress levels are key to reducing the effects of depression and to breaking the cycle of depression. Hypnosis can be utilized to achieve deep levels of relaxation. The other key points of intervention for lifting depression fast are improving sleep quality, building interpersonal skills, quietening the critical inner voice and addressing unmet needs – Hypnosis is also excellent for supporting these positive changes. And the statistics say that effective therapy is more likely to prevent future episodes than ‘other’ treatments.

Can Hypnosis be used for Sport Performance Anxiety?
Whether it’s perfecting that Golf swing, or taking the perfect shot, or getting into the zone for the match the one critical difference between success and failure is Control. Control of emotions, control of mental focus, control of your Inner state. Imagine what it would be like to have the ability to have total control, total confidence, total calm – in an instant. Imagine what it would be like if you could soothe those emotions like anxiety, fear and frustration which affect performance and lead to self sabotage. This is why so many top performers look to hypnosis to give them the edge. It’s the difference which makes the difference.
So, how much does it cost?
Pay for individual sessions as you go, or I offer blocks of 3 and 8 sessions. Which is right for you depends on your individual circumstances. I’m always happy to have a conversation about finding the right help and correct support for you.
