Frank, Sexual Problem resolved using Hypnoanalysis

I would just like to say that when I went to Stephen I was a bit sceptical, as I had already been to hypnotist before for the same problem and hadn’t seen any improvement at all,

My ‘problem’ as I called it was premature Ejaculation and I had been suffering from it, well…forever basically. I was at my wits end as I thought I have tried everything I could but to no avail so was very near going to resign myself to the idea that this was just the way my life was going to be.

Then I read Stephen’s website and read about his Hypnoanalysis therapy and thought, what did I have to lose. So I rang, got an appointment and met up for my first appointment where I we met by the most welcoming person I think I have ever met. We quickly got down to work with Stephen explaining everything in a really easy to understand manner.

Once we got to the ‘root’ of my problem and all this bottled up emotion was released it we like a very large weight had been lifted off my shoulders………….

I am now very glad to say that not only has hypnoanalysis helped me get rid of my problem, it has also given me so much confidence and a whole new outlook on life in general for which I am very grateful.
I will never be able to thank you enough but…Thank you.

RH, Fear of Driving and other problems resolved using Hypnoanalysis

You are probably reading this because something is troubling you (perhaps it has been for years), it’s getting worse and you don’t know how to deal with it even though you may have tried a number of conventional treatments. You are considering hypnosis but want to go to someone who is trustworthy and genuine and not a ‘rip off’ merchant. My advice is to call Stephen, he is totally genuine, this could be the best decision you will ever make.

As a man in my 50s with a responsible job I was struggling with a phobia that had slowly developed over the previous 4 or 5 years and was beginning to disrupt my life. I suspected it may be work-related as the problem had started following a promotion but I enjoyed my job so couldn’t understand why this would be.

At the initial meeting with Stephen I was neither sceptical nor optimistic but just hoping that the treatment would work.  Stephen was really ‘normal’ and easy to talk to and put me at ease right away. We talked about myself, my family and just briefly about my problem and sorted out some appointment times. I was surprised that Stephen did not want to hear too much about ‘the problem’ but as I found out later ‘the problem’ is merely a symptom, not the root cause, so in many ways is irrelevant.
The first session involved me sitting back on a recliner-type chair with my eyes closed and wearing headphones, Stephen then talked me into a relaxed state. I was fully aware of my surroundings and could have got up and walked away at any time, I was not asleep or ‘drowsy’ in any way. There is nothing weird or spooky about hypnosis but I understand that it is the perception that they will be out of control that puts people off – this is not how it is.

Once relaxed I talked and talked, laughed, and occasionally (to my surprise) cried. This pattern repeated over a number of sessions and after each I felt relaxed and that I had got something off my chest. However, I must point out that after 5 or 6 sessions I felt that I wasn’t making a great deal of progress as sometimes my phobia seemed to have improved but at other times it was still bothering me. I told Stephen of this and he advised me that this was a good indication that we were close to the root of the problem. It crossed my mind that this could be ‘rubbish’ and in fact the treatment wasn’t working but I’m glad to say that I stuck with it and Stephen was right in what he said.

In the end there was no ‘blinding flash’ of light in fact I wasn’t even in a treatment session when the cause of the problem revealed itself, I was on holiday in Spain. It was a ‘picture’ that just popped into my mind, just a memory of a single event that had occurred when I was a teenager. Initially I thought that this was something that I had always been aware of over the years and anyway the event was far too trivial to be the cause of my problem. However, the more I thought about it the more I realised that this was the root of the problem. It had been buried in my memory for almost 40 years. Suddenly I could see a connection between a number of things I had talked about during the sessions. l was on the text right away to Stephen to tell him the good news but we had one more session just to make sure that we had got to the bottom of the problem.

I cannot believe the difference in my life, my phobia has just about disappeared, I have the occasional ‘blip’ (when I remember how things used to be) but I am making steady progress. When I look back I realise that it was not just a specific phobia, I could be quite nervous in social situations and meetings for no apparent reason and I had a permanent ‘knot’ in my stomach which I only really overcame with the assistance of a few glasses of wine. Of course this only worked for an hour or two but now I have found a permanent solution that does not cause a hangover!
Strangely there was an added bonus – an old sports injury which had given me occasional neck and backache over the years has disappeared – I assume this must have been caused by tension rather than the original injury.

Given the dramatic change I can understand why people see hypnotism as ‘mystic’ but having been through the process I can see that it is merely being shown around your own mind by a friendly guide. You choose the direction to go in, you will go down a few blind alleys but eventually you get to where you need to be. Stephen helped me to help myself, it is completely logical and natural.

All I can say to anyone with a problem is to give Stephen a call, trust him, tell him absolutely everything and hang in there – it will be worth it.

Weight Control resolved with Hypnoanalysis

Hi Stephen, (testimonial as promised!!)

I just wanted to thank you so much for all the help you have given me over the course of my therapy. I have battled with my weight for years and was always looking for that “quick fix.” However having lost a lot of weight recently and getting to my dream size 12, only to start piling it on again, I realised there had to be underlying issues.

To finally understand why I felt the way I did about so many things truly does feel like a weight has been lifted: to describe it as a journey of self discovery is an understatement. I never considered myself as someone who had low self esteem but now I know I did and more importantly why……… and if it hadn’t been for your patience, understanding and good humour, I could never have got through it.

I have already lost some weight and look forward to when I can email you again and tell you that I’ve got where I want to be, but seriously I don’t feel nervous or underconfident about whether I will or not … I’m ready to take on the world!!

Ever grateful, J
