Effective Hypnosis was voted Business of the Year 2016 in Ealing in www.thebestof.co.uk  awards by satisfied customers. This award was again given in 2017.

Effective Hypnosis will present  a bespoke service. The sessions are geared towards the individual, and this is why we give  CD recordings of their live sessions to customers ( MP3 recordings can also be sent -So that you can listen anywhere on your phone or ipod). The reason for this is that we know that we are fighting against conditioning – the things that have been going round and round the mind for years – if we can put positive messages into the mind everyday for a month or two -then it’s going to go a long way towards forming a positive mindset.

Through the assessment consultation an individual process of therapy is selected – so what is recorded is bespoke to the person. Rather than give customers a general recording, we give them the one that has actually been recorded for them Is this something that could work for you?

We ask customers to commit to listening to their recording on a regular basis – allowing themselves to go into trance on a daily basis. The power generated doubles in strength with every trance – see Published Articles section for further detail.

We have a wealth of knowledge and expertise drawn from a wide understanding of several therapies, and seek to educate customers so that they can use their own power to change.

Effective Hypnosis is about giving people hope.  You may have thought that there is no hope for you and that you had tried everything, but  hypnotherapy can be very useful in promoting transformation in a wide variety of ways.

Our expertise in the areas of Quitting Smoking, Addiction Control, the Hypnotic Gastric Band, and controlling Chronic Fatigue are well documented in the testimonials we recieve. Smoking, addictions, and weight control are the main areas we get contacted about, and they have their own sections on the site.  There are many other topics we are skilled in for consultation.  Work Stress and anxieties are very relevant today. A few of these are listed here –

 Self Confidence /Self Esteem

 ‘Wanting more Self Confidence’ came top of the list of desires in a 2013 QVC survey – above a desire to be attractive or sophisticated. But just what is it that people have difficulty with?

 Some people  have the feeling that they  can’t express themselves? Their confidence may be  suffering as a result.  Low self confidence can lead to a poor performance in the workplace for spoken presentations and company meetings – quite apart from how they behave at parties, or with new people. Work stress and anxieties are more prominent than ever in 2016.

 By using the power of  hypnosis we can retrain their minds, transforming  them into  confident people, who   are supremely self confident  when presenting to  both individuals and large groups of people.  This is not brainwashing – it is tapping into the enormous power of the subconscious mind – drawing on inner strengths. It is not something that is ‘done’ to you without your wishes and commitment.

 It may seem  that someone can become a new person through hypnosis.  But this is nothing to do with change in personality  or mind control. We can help change patterns of thought and influence belief systems, giving people the reins of their minds. Customers are in control at all times.

  So many people have lost their livelihoods through the recession, and confidence has taken a battering as a result of redundancy.  The media proclaimed, in October 2012, that more women than ever in the over 50’s group  were finding themselves out of work.

Hypnotherapy can help with building up the self confidence and practicing interview skills. Job interview nerves may interfere with presentation of  talents, skills and personality, preventing some from wanting to attend at all.  This is hardly surprising, given that their talents, personality and skill sets will be judged by others. But with a hypnotherapy intervention,  by the time they come to an interview, they will have gone through the process so many times in your head, that it can seem easy to carry off.

 Hypnotherapy is a great tonic for driving test nerves – see our testimonials section.

 Do you have trouble meeting people for the first time, and is social / professional networking suffering as a result? Hypnosis could provide the answer.

Do you fear rejection at interviews? Hypnosis can give you a renewed sense of confidence, so you can breeze through an interview – presenting yourself in the best way.Is this something that you could see yourself embracing?

We contact the subconscious mind through trance. With this, we can boost self esteem. This builds motivation, and through teaching self hypnosis skills we can provide  lifelong tools for self enhancement.

We can train people to release  feelgood endorphins – the bodies natural opiates – into their bodies, and feel absolutely fantastic all over. This can lead to physical body change.

NLP techniques are used to create a system of putting yourself into a totally calm, supremely self confident state. These techniques help create instant rapport and trust, which can then be utilised for rapid change.

The New Scientist ran an article, in September 2008, stating that improvements in depressed people had been noticed when methods to slow heart rate variation ( HRV ) were applied, this has a tremendous implication for hypnotherapy. HRV is the gold standard medical test in America. The results indicate that hypnotherapy and meditation can be used to control stressful situations and this can be the controlling factor in managing disease and illness. Listening to one of Matthew’s hypnotherapy recordings can have the beneficial effects of going into deep trance.


Emotional Freedom Techniques

EFT is a meridean therapy – it is based on the same principles that govern Reflexology and Accupuncture – the philosophy that sees that balance in the body can be affected by manipulating energy points, in this case tapping. It uses the same points used in acupuncture, but with no needles. This is an ancient Chinese idea. It suggests that there is a flow of energy that runs throughout the body. This flow of energy is designed to let us live perfectly. However, blockages can stop us living fully.Traumas are stored in the energy bodies and may create blockages which are destined to appear in the body as disease.

EFT has been described as a simplified version of Thought Field Therapy – explained below. Research has been presented at The  Science and Consciousness Energy Psychology conference in Toronto, 2008. This researched into the effects of PTSD on  war veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. Statistics showed a reduction of up to 50% in stress levels in  areas such as anxiety, hostility, sensitivity, paranoia, psychosis and somatisation. These gains were maintained after a 90 day follow up.

Significantly, reductions in cortisol levels occur after Energy Psychology treatment, and are accompanied by improvements in heart rate variability (HRV ). HRV and cortisol are primary stress markers for a wide variety of genetic, hormonal and neurological effects of stress.

Meridean therapies put forward the idea that all negative emotions are caused by a disruption in the body’s energy system, and that through manipulation of energy points we can enable people to change the way they feel about something. A shift takes place in the meridian system. We can therefore create a healthy and addiction free body.  In Accupuncture it is done through needles, in Reflexology through manipulation of the pressure points. In EFT it is done through tapping the pressure points.

EFT heals people on both physical and psychological levels, and this can take away addictions and cravings. Matthew often uses EFT in controlling addictions, and phobias.

The Daily Mail had a feature on EFT and aerophobia on 4th November 2014. Effective Hypnosis has success dealing with fear of flying using EFT as a starting point to hypnotherapy sessions.

Thought Field Therapy is also used, in order to change people’s attitudes.  Emotions can become bundled up into energies called ‘thought fields’.TFT proposes that thought fields within the meridians can become blocked by trauma or negative thinking, and that by tapping in a specific sequence we can remove these blocks. It does this by ‘tapping’ into the root of problems, to remove the energy blockages.  Like EFT ( which was adapted from TFT ) a shift takes place in the meridian system. An example of this is seen in Matthew’s smoking cessation program – which will teach the TFT sequence to remove cravings. TFT  can help to lift negativity,  resistance to weight loss, negativity, panic attacks, and internal chatter.

Neurochemical changes reduce pain, slow the heart rate, decrease anxiety, shut off the stress response, and regulate the autonomic nervous system and create a sense of calm.

Janet Thompson, a hypnotherapist and Thought Field Therapy expert, appeared in a channel 4 program in August 2010. She described  meridians as like a system of motorways or highways, carrying all sorts of information. As we know, highways can get blocked. Using TFT we can change the information in the highway, and undo the blockage.

Regression – Through regression in hypnosis we take people back to the root cause of their problems.  Once they are there, we can deal with these, though changing attitudes  and build a stronger character for the future. Past Life Regression is also a useful tool for dealing with seemingly inate emotions. There is still hope when you may have thought that you tried everything.

Neuro Linguistic Programming changes submodalities, the minute parts of a phobia, so that the whole becomes less and less fearful – until it disappears.

NLP is an amazing add on to hypnotherapy, introducing many techniques that are now commonplace – Timelining is useful with age regession, and we can remove addictive behaviours using this.  Reframing is  useful with traumatic events and phobias , helping people to collapse negative states. Metaphor is  useful in reviewing learnings and exploring possibilities . Submodalities are useful in helping people to change the way they think about the minutia of their problems and make small changes to make them feel better. NLP processes will break down limiting and negative belief systems – that have been holding people back, and also explosive reactions – such as screaming and yelling when faced with misfortune. Many NLP techniques are used by salespeople.

 Matthew has skills in Traumatic Incident  Recovery, and uses this technique with post traumatic stress. There is some controversy about the effectiveness of trauma work. The war zone mental health journal, Intervention,  suggests, in May 2013,  that only 30% benefit from one off counselling sessions. However, this is not a reason to stop offering it. The evidence points at the fact that ongoing services should be offered.

EMDR  – Eye Movement Dessensitisation and Reprocessing -is a very useful eye movement technique, that has been used with traumatised Vietnam Veterans. Combat – related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can be a really dibilitating illness. But it is not always a permanent affliction.  Through a combination of  TIR, EFT, EMDR, NLP and hypnotherapy we can help to keep the ‘demons’ at bay.

Sufferers may feel that they are living in a state of red alert, being continually jumpy and anxious, with continual flashbacks.  EMDR therapy can involve bilateral stimulation of the brain to break the continual cycle.

The Daily Mail carries a feature on 26.7 16 illustrating  how EMDR has been used to end a woman’s lifetime fear of vomiting -see our articles page.  EMDR is part of the Effective Hypnosis service.

 The media reports, in October 08, that the “war on terror” had led to more people wanting drugs before flying. A service for those with fear of flying is available. HypnoCBT can teach systematic desensitisation to conquer this fear. If you have always had the jitters since you first experienced turbulance, and spend every night of your holiday dreading the return trip, then why not give hypnosis a try? Fly without fear

 Pain Management 

 We can see pain in different ways – there is short term pain, which can easily be medicated, chronic pain, which is a long term discomfort,  and acute pain , which is often the result of injury or disease.

Matthew can teach an effective way for anyone to  control their pain – fast.  This can be invaluable in helping peple with deeply rooted conditions. The human body is a magnificent healing mechanism, and people can be taught how to switch the healing on.

  As the subconscious mind does not judge suggestions, imagination and visualisation can be used to focus on thoughts and ideas that influence the body’s reponses – promoting hypnotic anesthesia – total elimination of sensations of pain.

Chronic Fatigue/ME

Hypnotherapy has been  shown to be effective in helping people to recover from chronic fatigue. There are, of course, many factors that lead to the start of chronic fatigue setting in, and full recovery may be a long time coming – but the advantage of having  hypnosis recordings to play over and over means that you can change.

 Sports Enhancement 

A large part of achievement in sport is believing you can do it. This works like a self fulfilling prophesy.

Roger Bannister, the man who broke the four minute mile in the 1950’s, said that it was easy once he had got his mind into a determined state. This set in process a shift in many people’s belief systems – as many others were able to do it, once they believed it was possible.  His acheivement changed a belief, and their attitudes changed  –  their bodies responded.

Many of today’s top sportsmen and women use sports psychology, including hypnosis, to give them advanced performance. Tangible physical processes occur in the brain and body as a result of the athlete’s thinking process. These can cause a change in physical performance. Part of this is learning the skills of self hypnosis in order to reach the state of singlemindedness that Roger Bannister had. You too can become a winner.

Effective Hypnosis worked with a low ranking professional rugby player in May 2014,on the issues of sports enhancement and gambling. In the autumn of 2014  he was able  to join a first class team.

Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus have used hypnosis for golf success. Jimmy Connors has used hypnosis for tennis success. Gerald McClellan, supermiddleweight boxer in 1995, attibuted his success to hypnotherapy.

As reported by the BBC, in August 08, Australian Gold Medalist and World Record Setter, Steve Hooker, used hypnosis to help him win the Gold in Beijing.


 Hypnosis can be really useful in helping people to focus, rather than panic, when they come to exams. Effective Hypnosis can teach people techniques to access the knowledge that they have stored in the marvelous computer of the mind, and to get it out in the concise and polished writing that is required.

We can’t help you to pass something that you haven’t studied, but we can help you to make the most of what you have.

Do –

learn some relaxation techniques

make sure you get enough sleep

don’t forget to breathe – a pattern of breathing in through the nose – expanding the stomach, and out through the mouth- deflating the stomach, will make you feel much more relaxed and together

cut down on the high energy drinks, try apple juice

good luck. Make people proud.

Public Speaking 

 Many of the skills used in Sports Enhancement can be adapted to Public Speaking, which may improve job prospects, interview skills, and sales presentations. Many salesmen use techniques developed in NLP. Hypnosis will help you gain the edge .



A hypnobirth uses hypnotherapy techniques to help reduce pain during labour, with the idea that women use specific breathing exercises and visualisation  techniques at different stages of labour to relax the body – helping to combat pain and lessening the need for an epidural.

Matthew has some experience in pain free childbirth hypnosis. Whilst he does recognise that most women will go to a woman therapist for this, it has been reported in the media ( April 2010 ) that a male therapist helped someone to have a pain free birth through work done in a hospital ward. For a fantastic HYPNOBIRTHING service for  by a woman in the heart of Ealing go to www.josimons.co.uk .

The Daily Express reports, in May 2013, that the Duchess of Cambridge is considering a hypnobirth for the birth of her first child with Prince William.  It goes on to say that hypnobrthing has been popular with Angelina Jolie and Jessica Alba.

The Daily Express reports, in August 2013, that a West Sussex hypnotherapist – Alex Lenkei – has hypnotised himself six times to get through invasive surgery without anaesthetic. He says that his pain control is better than the medical profession’s and he heals a lot quicker because his body doesn’t to get rid of all the chemicals. Explaining it, he adds “The brain is a very sophisticated computer and if you press the right buttons it will do amazing things – if you press the right buttons it will switch things off.”

Many women would agree that the most painful experience that they could ever experience is childbirth. The good news in this is that anyone can learn self hypnosis skills for a PAINLESS CHILDBIRTH.

Matthew can help with SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION issues, that affect a large percentage of men. Many men are too embarrassed to discuss it, but Effective Hypnosis is there to help. We can  also help with fertility issues.

Erectile Dysfunction

Doctors identify two types of ED – Primary ED – those who have never experienced an erection (this is rare) and Secondary ED – occurring in people that once had a regular erectile function. Secondary ED can be reversed.

Some medications may cause ED. Also Depression, Stress, Smoking, Alcohol or Drug abuse, Chronic illness, Kidney disorders, Nerve damage from diabetes Stroke

Common treatments are

  1. Short term treatments – which help with erections but don’t address the underlying cause. Viagra increases the blood flow to the penis which can provide short term relief – helping people with diabetes or atherosclerosis to have erections.
  2. Addressing the underlying cause Medication or exercise can improve cardiovascular health, which may eliminate ED
  3.  Psychological Treatments that can reduce anxiety, increase self esteem and improve relationships with sexual partners.
  4. Hypnotherapy can tackle many of these causes and help people to live with more full sexual experience.

Loss of libido

Depression – low levels of serotonine and dopamine can lead to lack of desire

Stress – producing  cortisol and adenaline  – that may turn off  desire hormones

Alcohol and Drugs –  disrupting the balance of chemicals in the body

Porn – which may reduce motivation for real contact,

and Obesity –  which may lead to loss of energy.

Now, whilst hypnotherapy does not intend to interrupt a clinical treatment for depression, it can do a lot to bring the sunshine back into someone’s life. We can influence how the body produces endorphins, to help people feel great again.

Hypnotherapy can have a great influence on stress levels and use up the fight or flight chemicals  in a healthy fashion.

Hypnotherapy can end drug and alcohol addiction and need.

Hypnotherapy can end porn addiction.

Hypnotherapy can tackle obesity problems.

Hypnotherapy can be used to bring back the original desire and motivations that first attracted couples to each other.

Hypnotherapy is a valid treatment for loss of libido.

Chronic Fatigue – Matthew is  accredited as a Chysalis Effect Practitioner (2012) He is happy to give hypnosis to chronic fatigue recoverers. See www.getyourlifebackfromme.com and www.mecfra.org

Irritable Bowel syndrome  ( IBS )

IBS is commonly referred to as a disorder of the digestion and the gut. Sufferers may experience –

discomfort, pain, diarhea, excessive flatulance,

This can have a real impact on someone’s life, preventing them from functioning effectively and enjoying life. In the United Kingdom there are thought to be 1.4 million sufferers at any one time.  It is recognised by the medical establishment that stress plays a big part in people developing IBS. There is a complex connection between the brain and the digestive system – which is why mood often affects the way stomachs feel. The nerve cells that line the stomach send messages back and forth to and from the brain – and the gut responds to how we feel.

NICE guidelines include hypnotherapy as a recommended treatment.

“Recommendation: referral for psychological intterventions ( CBT, Hypnotherapy and /or psychological therapies ) should be considered for those who do not reapond to pharmacological treatments after twelve months.”

In 2010, The Gloucestershire Royal Hospital reported a 90% success rate in tackling IBS through the use of hypnotherapy.

Peter Whorell, of Manchester University, says

” IBS is ideal for treatment with hypnosis, as there is no structural damage to the body. during the hypnosis sufferers learn how to influence and gain control of gut function and then seem to be able to change the way their brain modulates their gut activity.”

Matthew has a four session program for tackling IBS, although each person is different , so the individual therapy sessions are bespoke to that individual.. Each session is recorded onto CD, and the idea is that regular listening will retrain the mind and body towards healing this syndrome. The benefits of hypnotherapy are able to overcome the stress related syndrone of IBS. This can lead to bodily transformation, and ultimately, life change.



 On July 19th 2013 Matthew was interviewed on LBC radio in a live phone in show regarding phobias. He told them ( and the listeners ) that most phobias could be eliminated in about an hour with a reputable hypnotherapist. Effective Hypnosis has a lot of experience in collapsing phobias, and helping people to live fear free lives.



‘Faer’ is an ancient English word meaning ‘sudden danger’, and apparent danger inspires fear. Phobus is the name of the Greek god who could strike terror into the minds of victims and drive the into the clutches of the god Pan – who would strike victims with uncontrollable behaviour – a Panic attack.

Fear is normal in situations where there is a real or specific danger. It can be an enjoyable experience if we are at a fairground seeking sensation, or going to see a thriller movie. It is a learned response, that can be unlearned.

Anxiety is an unpleasant emotional reaction, that can be accompanied by unwanted physical symptoms. The heart beats faster as adrenaline pumps into the blood. hearing and sight become distorted. Palpitations can set in, making it impossible to speak. You may become physically and emotionally exhausted. Fear comes from evaluating an event or situation, anxiety is an emotional reaction to that evaluation.

Phobia is an extreme kind of fear, out of proportion to what is required in the situation, that cannot be explained or reasoned away, it is largely beyond voluntary control and leads to avoidance.

 What do we know?

According to statistics – one in nine people have a phobia of some sort;

one in twenty have a panic attack at some time in their lives.

Trauma, association with trauma, and avoidance,  of people or situations, trigger phobias.

We are born with two fears – that is, fear of falling, and fear of loud noise.  Any other fears are not innate, but learned fears. Therefore we can learn new responses to these.

Fear can arrest our decision making skills, causing us to avoid making any, and unable to break away from destructive habits.

How does hypnotherapy help?

It helps through tackling both the cause and the symptoms of the phobia. If we change the attitude from one of fight or flight to one of a relaxed  response, we remove the fear.

Regression is used to identify the root cause of the phobia; we can then change attitudes to the root cause first, then subsequent attitudes to repeated events can also be changed, until the reaction is collapsed:

Thought Field Therapy will help to reframe your mind, by releasing the negative energy stuck in your mind and body – though tapping your accupuncture points

Traumatic Incident Recovery may be necessary to deal with post traumatc stress;

Eye Movement Therapy is used to remove memory of   trauma;

Emotional Freedom Techniques are used to change trauma into positivity; again reframing the mind away from negative attitudes and building positive ones.

and Neuro Linguistic Programming is used to change attitudes – these are explained above in services.

We train the mind to completely reject previous negative patterns of thinking and reacting, and train them to create a solution to these patterns.

Past Life Regression is also used, if necessary, to uncover fears that seem hidden from one’s experience. If we cannot find a root cause of a phobia in everyday experience, we may need to look for it elsewhere. This is not an”out there” exercise, but a tool that is used to facilitate change.

In December 2010 the Daily Mail reported that one in five women were afraid of going to the dentist. They report that extreme dental anxiety is noticed in 19% of women by the NHS Information Centre. This is also seen in 10% of men.

This may be due to a fear of imagined  pain involved, a fear of needles, a fear of helplessness, or any other reason. Effective Hypnosis has been involved in hypnotising people in the dentist’s chair. Hypnotherapy can help to examine and eliminate fears.

Fear of flying – Aviaphobia –

Matthew gets consulted on flying phobia quite often. Virgin Atlantic, who run a flying without fear course,  estimate that one in five people have a fear of flying, but that about 95% of these can be cured of it.

There are a number of causes, sometimes associated with other phobias. Sometimes the cause is a fear of being trapped in an enclosed space for a long period of time; sometimes it is a fear for the safety of the aircraft; sometimes a worry about terrorist activity; sometimes a social phobia; sometimes a feeling of being out of control; sometimes post traumatic stress – the remembering of a previous event that leads to similar experiences becoming difficult – the incident remains in the sub-conscious and is readily activated by an associated stimulus.

But, statistically speaking, flying is a lot more safe than driving, and hypnotherapy can help people overcome their irrational fears.

Exam stress can make the mind go blank and prevent success. Matthew will help you to deal with exams without worry.

Hypnotherapy can help by altering the reactions, and establishing a more positive mindset. This can open up the world to people.

Other areas of expertise – Acrophobia – fear of heights, as above, this can be involved in flying phobia

Agoraphobia – fear of open spaces

Anthrophobia – fear of people, as above, this can be involved in flying phobia

Aracnophobia – fear of spiders – this is a common phobia, and can be similar to fear of tiny creatures

Aquaphobia – fear of water – Matthew has helped people here with regard to  learning to swim

                                         Claustrophobia – fear of closed spaces, as above, with flying phobia, also driving.

                                         Hematophobia – fear of blood – this can be debilitating in choice of career

                                          Lalophobia fear of public speaking – this can also involve exams, as well as public presentations. Matthew gets requests from people in the business world as well as students.

                                         Ophidiophobia – fear of snakes



 What are the signs of depression?

 The Depression Alliance suggests that if you are experiencing four or more of the following symptoms for most of the day, nearly everyday, for more than two weeks, then you should get help:

 Tiredness and loss of energy, Persistent sadness,  Loss of self confidence and self esteem, Difficulty concentrating, Not being able to enjoy things that are usually pleasurable, Undue feelings of guilt and worthlessness, Difficulty getting off to sleep or waking up much earlier than usual,  Avoiding people, even your close friends, Finding it hard to function at work or at school,  Loss of appetite,  Loss of sex drive or sexual problems, Physical pains, Thinking about suicide and death, Self harm.

But the help available may not solve the problem. If a GP prescribes for six months anti depressants which don’t do the job, what do you do?

We would not want to tell anybody to stop taking prescribed medication. Antidepressants are certainly effective at elevating mood by adjusting the activity levels of brain chemicals that control this. However, the British Medical Journal suggests that only 50% of antidepressants are effective in those that take them, , the remainder being misdiagnosed.

The May 2018 issue of Neroscience journal reports on discoveries at Hiroshima University. They note that depression mainly occurs in people that lack two chemicals – Serotonin and Norepinephrin (NE) and that 90% of drugs are based on this idea – artificially boosting the chemical  presence in the bloodstream. However, they also note that 30% do not respond to the drugs. Yumiko Saito and Yuki Kobayashi conclude that “obviously we need a new drug”

Perhaps this is true, but perhaps what we need is a change in perception -there are internal chemicals that can be accessed via hypnosis and other methods that may alleviate mild depression

Learn to relax – try hypnosis, yoga or meditation;

Exercise – gentle pursuits such as walking or swimming lift your mood;

Changes to your diet – eating a nutrient rich diet with plenty of fresh fruit and veg can make you feel physically and psychologically better;

Get out and about – Interact with other people

Sunshine – Research shows that it can improve mood.

In 2012 there has been  research, in Houston, suggesting that boosting vitamin D in women with mild to severe depression.

In 2013 researchers at a university in Toronto found that depression decreased significantly in those patients that had their insomnia cured, finding better results than those that took medication or placebo. Hypnotherapy helps here.

In 2015 scientists from Kyoto University published results in Scientific Reports on research into the Precuneus – the part of the brain associated with happiness. They found that the size of the precuneus in subjects could be increased through psychological training and meditation. Subsequently subjects overall happiness and hope for the future reflected an increase in psychological testing. Hypnotherapy an play an important role here, in changing people’s brain cells positively without medication.

A survey of British women, in May 2017, showed that 25% revealed that they had been depressed in the past year.

How can hypnosis help?

   Hypnosis can help in a number of ways in helping to change  negative attitudes into positive ones –

an attitude of gratitude; giving hope in a positive future;feeling relaxed, calm and confident; taking pleasure in your activities,approval of the self;feeling healthy and strong, with a healthy appetite;taking pride in you accomplishments; taking responsibility for thoughts, feelings and for life; being focused and able to concentrate;an attitude of kindness.

Through hypnotic trance we access the subconscious mind and can implant attitudes that will protect against negative emotions taking hold.  We can help change patterns of thought that may be deep seated in the mind. Changing the mind means changing your thinking, so you can rewire your brtain to change your attitudes through hypnosis. Hypnosis can put joy back into your inner mind. When we learn something new our brain changes through neuroplasticity. There are changes in the neural pathways of the brain so that we can retain information. This change can lead to life changes, so that we are not victims of circumstance, but can become masters of our future.

Thought Field Therapy will help you to reframe your mind .

EFT – Emotional Freedom Techniques – can help to heal depression by releasing the negative energy stuck in the mind and body. By tapping on the meridian points a shift in the meridian system can be created, taking someone away from  their dark moods to ones of feeling good again.

In 2008 the New Scientist published an article saying that Heart Rate Variability rates could be lowered by slowing down the mind. HRV is the gold standard medical test in America for wellness. It has a tremendous implication for hypnotherapy, as using meditataion and hypnotherapy to slow down the mind can lead to physical body change. Listening to one of Matthew’s hypnotherapy recordings can have the same therapeutic effects as going into deep state meditation.

David Hamilton, in his ground breaking book, It’s the thought that counts, uses the analogy

 If you cross a field of snow again and again you create a pathway. Hearing positive messages again and again crates a neural pathway in your mind, making therapeutic change easier.

 Jack Dee told The Telegraph that he tackled depression with hypnotherapy in April 2011.


 Hypnotherapy has the power to enable you to stick to a diabetic diet, or even to tackle the symptoms of diabetes – through influencing the pancreas to perform with perfection.


 Hypnotherapy can help people to cope with the symptoms of hayfever.  In May 2015 a former client posted on  facebook that he had not suffered from hayfever for three years -since having hypnotherapy.





 If you are having problems you are not alone

Did you know that only 42% of those attempting it pass their driving test the first time? Usually this is because of a lack of confidence on the day. Hypnosis can help with driving test nerves, and also help to correct common mistakes.

Obviously it is going to be a lot easier for people to pick up the  necessary skills  if they already have  co -ordination  skills  in other areas, such as skills picked up in  playing an instrument, or sports,  because the action has become, or will become, automatic.

And with the skill of driving – if you can become a person who acts automatically, responding to the unknown, without becoming worried, then you may find it easy to learn. By rehearsing the steps for the driving test, through hypnosis, the learner can become adept at them – because the mind will take on the idea that the routines that are practiced  in hypnosis have actually taken place. With the use of our back up cds, you will have faced a driving test in trance many times, and responded marvelously. See our testimonials section  and on www.thebestof.co.uk/local/ealing for an example of the power of hypnosis for driving test nerves.

How can hypnosis help?

Hypnotherapy boosts brain power, allowing you to concentrate better, avoid distractions and respond automatically and quickly.

Using the techniques of Thought Field Therapy Matthew can teach you how to banish nerves and become self confident. The driving test is nothing to be scared of, and Matthew can teach you techniques that will help you to drive effectively and competently.

Effective Hypnosis can give you the tools to pass with ease, and with flying colours. See our testimonials section for evidence of our success.Jack Dee says that he tackled his depression with hypnotherapy, in The Daily Telegraph in April 2011.
