This combination achieves greater success in a shorter period.  Analytical hypnotherapy techniques enable us get to the root cause of the problem so you can let go of any unhelpful underlying emotions and feelings. NLP techniques are used to help motivate and to change negative feelings into positive ones. Where there is an unwanted, negative habit or behaviour, I will help you break the behaviour and replace it with something better for you.

You are unique; the approach I take is tailored to the individual in order to achieve the desired result. My goal is to always work within a framework of honesty, genuine care, confidentiality and support.

7th Path Self-Hypnosis® 

7th Path Self-Hypnosis® Available

This hypnotist is fully a trained and certified 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® Teacher.

7th Path Self-Hypnosis® is a mind-body-spirit approach to self-hypnosis that surpasses any previous kind of self-hypnosis available.

To learn more about 7th Path® visit this self-hypnosis information page.

What is 7th Path Self-Hypnosis™?

A unique Self-Hypnosis program that allows you to remove old programming that blocks success.
 An easy and interactive approach to learning self-hypnosis.
Easier than learning ordinary self-hypnosis from a book.
 Whilst you are in hypnosis, the 7th Path hypnotist guides you through the process,
 You can then use the technique to take yourself back into hypnosis, utilising the
unique tools and techniques to effect the CHANGE YOU WANT.

The hypnotherapist is there to guide and direct you and to answer any questions that you might have.

The Practitioner dedicates time each morning and afternoon to the practice as well as a short period of time before going to sleep.

People who have experience doing a form of meditation will quickly recognise that this is a profound leap forward. It can give you everything that you wanted from meditation and more.

The 7th Path™ acts like a deprogramming device that removes old limiting beliefs and patterns.

We call this "Emptying of the Cup."   During this phase of 7thPath™  the system works like anti-virus software for the mind, ridding you of all erroneous programming from the past that is getting in the way of your happiness, success and feelings of confidence.

Once some cup-emptying has been accomplished, practitioners can use the system to make almost any kind of improvement that he or she wants to make in life.

•    Overcome bad habits - smoking, nail biting, excessive snacking, procrastinating, and over sleeping.
•    Create new habits - exercising regularly, self-motivation, being more patient with others and more.
•    Self-improvement -  improving self-confidence, Ego strengthening stress reduction, public speaking, overcoming fears and anxiety and more.

You can learn the 7th Path™ by working directly with this hypnotherapist in individual one-on-one sessions.

The process is simple and would generally follow this structure:

1.    First receive an introduction to hypnosis, where you learn about hypnosis and the subconscious mind.
2.    There will be a demonstration of hypnosis where you get to see how it works and ask questions.
3.    Then you will learn all about how the system works and how you can "empty the cup."
4.    Then you will get to learn how to induce hypnosis in yourself and give yourself the 7th Path® suggestions.
5.    There will be lots of time to ask questions and practice your new skill.

If you want to:

•    Rid yourself of old habits and addictions.
•    Improve your mood.
•    Improve your relationships.
•    Help yourself become more patient and confident.
•    Improve study and test taking.
•    Become a better parent.
•    Heal yourself from stressed induced illnesses.
•    Answer your calling in life.
•    Bring your highest philosophies and beliefs into your everyday life!

Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy and NLP

How does hypnosis/hypnotherapy work?

The mind functions on two levels - the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious mind is logical rational and analytical – the part of the mind we use on a day to day basis for decision making, the part of the mind we like to think is in control.

The subconscious mind controls our emotions and feelings, long term memories, habits and imagination. It is the part of the mind which is in control. In hypnosis we access and communicate directly with the subconscious mind. This enables us to make positive changes to behaviour through suggestion.


Hypnosis is not sleep

It is a state of deep relaxation that you are guided into. You are totally aware of what is happening and in control yet fully relaxed and open to suggestion.


Who can be hypnotised?

Generally speaking everyone of normal intelligence (with an IQ above 70) can be hypnotised. In fact most of us experience forms of hypnosis every day; every time you daydream you are in a form of hypnosis, if you are deeply engrossed in a movie or a book, you are in a form of hypnosis.


Hypnosis is completely safe

You are aware and in control and at any stage can terminate the session. It is impossible for you to get "stuck" in a state of hypnosis, and you cannot be made to do something that is against your will, you are in complete control of your actions and everything you say.


Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

NLP was created in the early 1970's by Richard Bandler and John Grinder. NLP has been described as the modelling of excellence. It utilises various procedures and methods to create positive changes to behaviour


Advanced hypnotherapy

Advanced hypnotherapy incorporates advanced forms of hypnosis, NLP and other therapies as appropriate.
