“Thanks for seeing me today. I found the whole experience like a voyage of discovery. Your good humour, kindness and sensitivity was much appreciated.” C.M.
“It has been just over 6 weeks since ********* attended a session with you and gradually week by week he has grown in confidence and happiness – we could tell the difference straight away on the train on the way back. He has been leaving his bedroom to do things he has not done for years… out with friends, on Saturday we had a family day out… today he’s been to golf and tomorrow he’s going to London with my mum. He has chosen to do all of these things by himself.” M.H.
“When I left the session, I walked across Hyde Park. All the things that were weighing me down seemed to have gone and I noticed I did feel different, just like you said. When I got home the first thing I did was trash all the stuff from the ******* that had ‘owned’ me. The next day in work was the first day I had felt comfortable in my job for years. I do feel resolute and determined and that I have a life again. Thank you…” P.F.
“You guys are amazing… I wish I could fly with you.” C.P.
“******* has made fantastic progress…” G.S.
“You made me laugh. That was what was missing. Thanks guys – onward and upward from now on!!!” G.A.
We are now working in Lancaster Gate, opposite Hyde Park, in central London. This provides a more pleasant and relaxed environment for therapy than our old premises in Harley Street.
We see a maximum of three clients per day. This guarantees our full and very best attention.
Your session can take up to two hours. Our flat fee is £500. Our aim is to help clients achieve rapid change, retake ownership of their lives and move forward in as shorter time as possible. There are no additional fees or charges.
Your Hypnotherapy Session
about your session
It’s best not to eat a large meal or drink strong coffee or alcohol before your session. We also advise you to wear comfortable clothing. If you wear contact lenses, you might be more comfortable if you remove them for the session. It’s also OK to bring someone with you, although they will not be able to take an active part in the session.
consultation and discovery
What happens during the session is specific to your individual needs, and whatever we talk about will remain confidential.
Hypnotherapy is a collaborative experience, meaning, therapy is a teamwork effort – you, Andrew and Barrie working together to help you achieve a positive shift.
The conversation we have at the beginning of the session will be about your personal history and exploration of your presenting problem. We’ll also talk about what you wish to achieve.
There is nothing mysterious or supernatural about hypnosis – hypnosis is actually a series of well-understood psychological techniques. Hypnosis is a state of very deep relaxation where the mind is focused on the suggestions that can help you move forward with, and take control of your own life, helping to leave behind negative thoughts and emotions.
Being hypnotised is an extremely relaxing and pleasant experience. During hypnosis, you will hear everything and be aware of everything that is happening – and you will remain in control at all times. You’ll feel mentally and physically calm. Many people describe experiencing a feeling of well-being.
You will be in the driving seat at all times – we will help you by guiding and instructing your mind more powerfully than if you were wide awake. The real ‘change work’ takes place during the hypnosis.
One of the most exciting things about hypnotherapy is how quickly positive change can be achieved. Hypnosis can offer a short cut to solutions compared with other types of therapy that can take several sessions.
After the session, you will feel relaxed and positive and start to become aware of a growing confidence and calmness in the days and nights to come.
Even if challenges arise in the future, you will have more tools and techniques to help you get back on track.

“My approach is not entirely orthodox because I don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ therapy textbook. Each case has to be viewed on its own individual merits.
I disagree with the new fad of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, which relies on predetermined questions to every client in each session, because that approach does not take into account the individual needs of that client. Clients have things they want to talk about and it’s important to listen to what they actually want, rather than what you think they should have. In any event, I don’t believe in long therapy – my aim is the termination of therapy from the start.
I understand that clients really just want to learn how to retake ownership of their lives and to live regret-free. I also understand that people need to feel satisfied in what they’re doing and not be disappointed in themselves.
It is also my belief that the client must do all the work! It is they who must recognise what is important and what is trivial. In that respect, my style can be brutally honest and even occasionally confrontational.
Psychotherapy has its origins and foundations in the late 19th Century psychology of Freud and Jung. These are no longer relevant because since the beginning of recorded humanity, thinkers and philosophers (Plato, Epicurus, Socrates, etc.) were talking about issues and solutions that are just as relevant today. Today, mainstream psychotherapy is too narrow in its thinking about what constitutes the human condition. I’ve been doing this a long time… and I’m very selective who I see. Most of my clients come from recommendation.”
