Stopping smoking


Having been a smoker for 30 years and having attempted to quit unsuccessfully on several occasions, my family were becoming more concerned for my health as was I, as I had a persistent cough and wheeze. A former work colleague had recommended Geoge but I was sceptical. I decided to get in touch with George and thought why not give it a go, what was there to lose?

I had a face-to-face consultation and all was well for the first week.  I then felt the need to get back in touch with George as I was not coping as well as I had been. George was fantastic. We arranged another consultation ‘FREE OF CHARGE’ and I haven’t looked back since. My health has turned around and I am on the path to a happy healthier lifestyle. 



Stopping smoking


Having been a smoker for many years and I've had several failed attempts at trying to quit.  I came across George's website during my Google search for local hypnotherapist . He was extremely helpful and positive during our first conversation 

I had one face to face consultation with George I am very happy to say I have now been off the cigarettes for 6 months   

I am pleased to report I am already feeling the benefits of this therapy to my personal health since quitting. It's  given me the energy to go back to the gym and exercise  .

Needle and surgery phobia


George was recommended to me by an Oncologist at the Beatson due to my fear of needles & surgery.

I met with him a number of times online which was really convenient & meant I didn't need to take much time off of work.

I enjoyed the sessions & always felt more positive after them. Most importantly, I definitely saw a positive impact of George's sessions on my weekly treatment & surgery. I was far more relaxed, resilient & felt more positive going into appointments. It really made my treatment far more manageable.

Thank you George  for everything  you've done for me.

Stopping smoking


As a smoker of over 30 yrs I had tried various ways to stop smoking on numerous occasions. Each time all I could think about was consciously not smoking or that I really wanted a cigarette. Each attempt failing after a few months or weeks. After having a problem with my throat and having tests done, which all came back clear thankfully, I knew it was time to get serious about stopping. George and I had a chat and he explained his method and how the session was going to go. To be honest I really didn't think it would work especially since we were doing it over a zoom session. During the session I still wasn't convinced since I didn't feel like I was hypnotised. Once the session finished and I switched off my computer I returned to my day as normal. I haven't had a cigarette since. I haven't thought about having a cigarette or even wanted one. No cravings, no mood swings no weight gain. All the health benefits I wanted have come to fruition, my skin and hair look great and my dentist is over the moon . My fitness levels have improved and I just feel so much better in myself. I can even be around smokers and have no desire to have one. George and his process have seriously changed my little world and I would recommend any long or short term smoker to give it a go. Thanks George ❤

George is excellent at hypnotherapy. He uses different approaches to every kind of problem and gets to the root of the problem.  I had terrible anxiety which was turning into a phobia.  If you need any help and support don't hesitate to get in touch with George.

What is hypnosis?


Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state that we all experience at various times and in various depths throughout the day. The experience of hypnosis has been described in many ways but is often explained as a streamlined state of focused attention. Many people describe hypnosis as feeling similar to daydreaming, when they are neither fully alert, nor asleep. Everyone’s experiences and therefore descriptions of hypnosis will vary because all trance states feel different to different people. Hypnosis is usually associated with a pleasant feeling of deep relaxation and this can be part of the therapy, however not all hypnosis nor Hypnotherapy involves relaxation in the traditional sense.

Are there any dangers?


None.  You will be in a safe environment and will simply be relaxed.

Can anyone be hypnotised?


Most people can go into at least a light trance, this is sufficient for most hypnotherapeutic goals. Therefore the majority of people can benefit from Hypnotherapy to some extent.

Will I remember what happened during Hypnosis?


You will remember most things but not all, but this is the way the memory normally works. For example, when you listen to a speech you don't remember everything that has been said., but you will recall the majority of it.  The same applies with Hypnosis.

Will I lose consciousness whilst in Hypnosis?


During Hypnotherapy the client is always fully aware and in control of everything that happens. It's like day dreaming, so even if the therapist left the room and never returned you would come round by yourself within a few minutes. Whether working online or face-to-face, should a client fall asleep then they would naturally wake at some point if left to their own devices. 

Does Hypnotherapy work online as well as it does face-to-face?


I currently do 100% of my work online and I am getting the same results as when I only did face-to-face sessions.  The only slight difference is that it might take slightly longer to build therapeutic rapport, but luckily this comes quite quickly anyway.

You will need to consider where you will be for your online session though.  Does it need to be private? Do you have a place where you won't be interrupted? Do you have a reasonably good internet connection?

After my first consultation with George I could not have asked for better help with managing my anxiety. George is incredibly knowledgeable, supportive and caring and helped me to develop positive techniques and relaxation skills, which have not only made my anxiety easier to manage but has helped me sleep better than I have in years. Incredibly I also feel more like myself than I have in a very long time. George will tailor your sessions to suit your individual needs and will take you through each step of the process at your own pace. After only a few sessions I could feel myself becoming more positive and looking for the good things I had around me.

Cannot thank George enough for his help during our hypnotherapy sessions, it has brought me back from the shadows of my stress and anxiety. Please look no further, a new positive outlook on life is only a phone call away.

If you have ever thought about Hypnotherapy than George Is the person to help you out. He helped me with my Achondroplasiaphobia which I have had for a good few years. He was happy to answer all of my hundreds of questions and made me feel at ease.

George helped me through a period of emotional turmoil. With the techniques he taught, I was able to navigate the crisis and ultimately steer into calmer waters. I still use the techniques when I need peace of mind or clarity of thought, and I would certainly recommend his service.
