I went to see mark with various issues going on in my life, he has been brilliant every step of the way. He has a very unique and personal approach to helping you. His practice is a perfect, very good place to feel comfortable and at ease. Mark is very easy to talk to and has helped me rebuild my life and expectations, his Hypnosis is so good, you come way feeling fantastic, thankyou mark, I fully recommend him to anyone seeking help. 10 out of 10 , do not hesitate give him a call . Make your life better . I did , so glad I made this choice.
I’ve been seeing Mark primarily regarding my anxiety which is exacerbated by my OCD. He is excellent at both hypnotherapy and talking-therapy and has really helped to provide me with the tools to help control, manage and reduce my anxiety. Mark won’t try and lock you into numerous sessions nor will he try to sell you products, he is only concerned with empowering people to live their lives as they see fit and he does this in a relaxed, non-judgmental environment.
What really sets Mark aside from a lot of therapists and people in general, is that as well as talking the talk, he walks the walk. He has experienced a lot of things, both good and bad, in his life and this enables him to provide more than textbook knowledge. He is very easy to talk to and very open about himself. This really allowed me to build trust with him which imo is essential when talking about myself and what I viewed as my “darkest and embarrassing” secrets/issues.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a totally natural state of Mind. Your state of awareness changes regularly during everyday life, perhaps while you are driving or drifting towards sleep. Hypnotherapy provides a safe and natural way of re-programming your thoughts, behaviours, and even your body using the power of your mind.
Hypnosis and therapy work together, when you have reached a deep and pleasant state of relaxation. During this stage, the hypnotherapist provides positive suggestions to the subconscious mind to help you achieve your desired goals.
Deep within your subconscious you have an amazing capacity to become receptive to new understanding, ideas and information. You can access the power already within yourself as you are guided towards developing new insights, changing unwanted habits and achieving new goals.

How does hypnotherapy work?
Hypnotherapy involves a safe and natural way of re-programming your thoughts, behaviours, and even your body using the power of your mind. Hypnosis works as you are led into a deep state of relaxation. Some may refer to this as a trance state, much like the feeling of ‘auto-pilot’ when driving a car or feeling absorbed when reading. During this stage, the hypnotherapist provides positive suggestions to the powerful subconscious mind, while it is highly receptive to process new information. Like a computer programme running in the background, your inner mind will help you achieve your desired goals.
Can I be hypnotized against my will, can I lose control?
No. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. You have to want to be hypnotized before a trance state can be achieved; you progress with full consent and never lose self control. At all times during the course of a hypnotic session, you will be able to hear and to think. You are aware of what is going on around you. Although your body is very relaxed, your mind is actually more alert than usual. Many people are worried by stage hypnosis and the fact that the subjects, many of whom do ridiculous things for fun, seem to have no knowledge of anything around them. This is a myth and hypnosis as entertainment should not be confused with therapy. Both depend on mutual co-operation between the people involved.
Can I get stuck in trance?
No. You are never unconscious and remain in control. The therapist will guide you back to a fully alert state at the end of your session, however you can interact while relaxed and could respond to any situation, should you need to. You are most likely to experience a pleasant and secure sensation.
