Absolutely thrilled to be featured as guest professional on this week’s fabulously wonderful Hypnosis-Weekly podcast!

No cure for tinnitus, hypnosis, hypnotherapy, Devon, Dorset, information,

These weekly podcasts are rammed full of fascinating facts, theories and insights and it was truly a real honour to be invited alongside people I regard as my internationally respected peers.  If you are interested in hypnosis, they offer a wide and varied opportunity to learn more about all manner of different approaches to the field from the zany to the practical and sober.

Not least, I get to post this feature about a presentation I gave on Wednesday to the AE College of Therapeutic Hypnosis:

It gives the low-down on the information I delivered to other hypnotherapists about my approach to tinnitus – and details three other fascinating talks that happened at the same event too.  It was a great evening!

I was so excited to have been invited to talk about my work – especially because it Continue reading

Tidy. Your. Room…).

In fact, James Braid – the ‘father of hypnosis’ – described the process as Continue reading
