Client Testimonials

“Thank you for yesterday’s NLP session, it was the most dynamic, powerful and stress-free session I have ever had! I felt as if I was flying, more or less on top of the world.” Martha N.

“It has been two years since my NLP session with you and I am still off the cigarettes!” Ed D.

“I have just come out of a team meeting – and guess what? I spoke up today for the first time in three months. A breakthrough I would say! I feel like I am more myself and linking it. Thank you!” Rachel O.

“I’ve felt a huge difference in myself since our last session. It was immediate and patterns of my behaviour were instantly different. I’ve found I still get the idea to eat all that junk food, but there is little to no urge behind it anymore and it passes quickly. I must say, it’s strange to be able to have biscuits in my drawer and not demolish them. Amazing!” Rita C.

How NLP works

Since its beginnings in the early 1970’s, the creators of NLP have done extensive research into how people have naturally overcome their problems. In addition, they studied the world’s best therapists at the time, including Milton Erickson, the “father of modern Hypnotherapy”. Combining their findings, a body of powerful and fast working techniques was developed, a body that continues to grow with ongoing research.

During a session, you will sit comfortably and after an initial consultation, Michael will guide you through the appropriate techniques (Anchoring, Time Line Techniques, Sub-modalities, Core Transformation, Hypnosis, Parts Integration, Goal Setting, Re-imprinting, Reframing, Quantum Linguistics to name a few). These techniques have already helped thousands to feel better and to get what they desire from life. Michael combines NLP and Hypnotherapy into a winning formula for overcoming unwanted habits, loosing weight, stop smoking and more.

According to research conducted by the Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy released today, 89% of previous clients would recommend hypnotherapy.

The participants were drawn at random from clients they had seen over a three year period between 2007 and 2010. All of them presented with anxiety issues in the first instance and had completed the full course of hypnotherapy sessions.

Hypnotherapy Directory reports Sleep Hypnosis is the Key to a Good Night’s Sleep

Deep relaxation is key in the quest for sleep, and many studies have found that simply trying to sleep will potentially worsen the situation because it causes tension. Sleep hypnosis however, is aimed at helping individuals to return to more regular patterns of sleep by using specialist techniques to resolve any underlying anxiety issues whilst teaching and promoting relaxation.

IBS: hypnosis could work for kids too

Children with irritable bowel syndrome could benefit significantly from a short course of hypnotherapy, German researchers suggest. Their study randomised 38 children with long-term abdominal pain to either two ninety-minute hypnotherapy sessions or a wait list. Those who completed the sessions were far more likely to have clinical remission at three months compared with the wait-list group (55% vs. 6%), the authors from the University of Tübingen found.
