Insight Clinical Hypnosis

Hypnotherapy is a growing discipline that has been found to be enormously effective at dealing with many problems; not only habit alteration, like quitting smoking or controlling bad eating habits, but also as a way of healing past traumas, controlling the psychosomatic symptoms of illness, and gaining the confidence to make positive changes in your life.

I am a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist based in West London, and I use techniques drawn from hypnotherapy, NLP, and other therapy techniques to help individuals gain insight into the difficulties of life, and overcome them. If you wish to find out more about how I can help you, I offer a completely free half-hour consultation.

Stop smoking

Hypnosis has built a fantastic reputation for being able to help people stop smoking. If you really want to quit, find out how I can help. More about stopping smoking.


Depression affects one in five people at some point in their life. Hypnotherapy offers a series of techniques that help deal with the problems of depression - by healing past pain, instilling more positive ways of thinking, and creating better mental habits. More about depression.

Clinical Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy uses techniques of relaxation, visualisation, and creative thinking to allow our own unconscious minds to resolve our problems.

The unconscious mind is an exceptionally powerful part of our mental landscape, but ordinarily we make little directed use of it. By working with a trained hypnotherapist you can learn how to change your habits, thought processes, and every day perspective to resolve long outstanding problems. The results can be dramatic, and life changing.

Lectures on hypnotherapy

I present talks about hypnotherapy and hypnotic techniques to groups and societies. Many people want to know more about this emerging and fascinating field, and I give hour long talks tailored to the interests of a given audience. More about lectures.

Corporate workshops

As well as giving talks to societies, I run corporate workshops. There are many ways in which employees can benefit from the techniques used in hypnotherapy – whether it is for stress relief, or exercises in creative visualisation which enhance creativity and personal confidence. Many people are fascinated by hypnosis, and would relish the chance to work with a trained hypnotherapist for a day. More about workshops.
