My anxiety issues are gone *

I have had anxiety issues virtually all my life and decided that now was as good a time as ever to do something about it. Having researched several treatments online, I decided that Hypno-therapy sounded good. I was still sceptical though. Right after my first session with James, the changes were phenomenal. And after 3 more, I can’t even imagine why I waited so long to do this. My anxiety issues are gone, I am far more self confident, my activity and energy levels are up. I now see solutions and opportunities where before I saw difficulties and obstacles. It has been the best investment of the year, if not my life. *

From Jan Dielkins on February 16, 2018

When my session was over I knew I had stopped smoking for ever *

If I’d had realised that stopping smoking was going to be this easy and stress-free I would have seen James much sooner! I had smoked for many years, for so many years that it had become a part of my life, my behaviour and my thinking. I had started smoking as an insecure, anxious teenager when I believed back then that smoking somehow gave me control, made me more grown-up, stronger. Until I saw James, there was a part of me that still believed that thought process and therefore whenever I thought of stopping smoking, I would become anxious again, thinking that I would not be able to cope and not be in control. I honestly thought that stopping smoking would mean my life would be empty, filled with gaps and I didn’t know how I was going to fill those gaps! That is how the habit of smoking had taken over me!

My 2 hour session with James flew by – I couldn’t believe the time had passed so quickly and in that 120 minutes my life had changed for ever. The process of being in the hypnotic state was very straightforward and calming. I was aware of what was being said to me and I was also aware of the clarity of those words – I was awake and my mind felt completely focused on James’ words.

When my session was over I knew I had stopped smoking for ever. I remembered that I had smoked in the past but I had absolutely no desire to have a cigarette ever again. I felt true Freedom for the first time in many many years. No more ruminating about when, where, how I could have my next cigarette, no more feeling that I was being controlled by my habit, no more feeling like a failure when I lit up another cigarette.

The funny thing is that my greatest fear about stopping smoking was that my life would feel empty, that I would not have anything to reward myself with/comfort myself with – now that I have stopped smoking I can see how the habit had distorted my thinking to keep me smoking. Since my session with James I have not replaced cigarettes with food or alcohol (that was also my concern that if I stopped smoking I might reach for a chocolate bar or drink but that hasn’t happened). I have far more energy, my skin looks better and I feel better. I no longer think about smoking.

If you’re thinking that you want to stop smoking but just don’t know how I would definitely recommend James – it will be the best 2 hours you can experience – pain-free, stress-free and life changing! *

From Penny McCarthy on December 24, 2017

He wants his clients to succeed and expects, and gives, a level of commitment to getting you over and beyond your challenges *

Having worked with James twice now, once for my own phobia and also to help my teenage daughter, I thought it time to share my positive experience with others.

James is a refreshingly straightforward and highly skilled therapist. He wants his clients to succeed and expects, and gives, a level of commitment to getting you over and beyond your challenges. James does not beat about the bush, so if you’re looking for a softly, softly approach he may not be the right person for you, however from my experience, he achieves fantastic results very quickly!! *

From Sally Cockroft on November 17, 2017

The techniques James uses are quick, easy and efficient*

I went to James to get help around public speaking, which I had negative feelings around and which I didn’t feel my best or confident about when on stage.

I went a few days before my TED talk and I can say happily and confidently, that it went the best I’d ever done it.

The techniques James uses are quick, easy and efficient.

I’ve seen him twice and I highly recommend him.  He’ll help you break through barriers.*

From on November 11, 2017

The treatment is well worth investing the money in *

This treatment has completely changed my life. Blushing was holding me back at work and socially and making me feel anxious all the time and I was desperate to find something that would help.  I still can’t believe it now but this treatment has made me feel so calm and confident in situations I didn’t think possible before. It has made me much more able to enjoy life and take part in activities I would have avoided before. The treatment is well worth investing the money in. I can’t thank James enough *

From Charlotte Halfpenny on November 9, 2017

Since working with James I have not stammered once and I feel amazing *

James is quite simply superb! I went to James to help me let go of an old pattern of stammering when stressed. During the session, I had a major breakthrough realising that what I thought was the issue wasn’t the issue at all and James helped me put that right. Since working with James I have not stammered once and I feel amazing and ready to take on the world! Thank You James! If you are thinking of Hypnotherapy then I highly recommend James to you 🙂 *

From Paul Adamson on October 4, 2017

After one 20 minute session with James we walked to a lift nearby got in and travelled up and down a few times :) *

I have had a fear of small spaces and can never travel in lifts or the tubes in London, my heart beats so fast, I start to sweat and my brain clicks into major panic mode to get out quick. I visited James after researching lots into hypnotherapy and who could help me. We spoke at length on the phone about my needs and I felt he was the right guy for me. After one 20 minute session with James we walked to a lift nearby got in and travelled up and down a few times :). Since then I have got into a very small lift (3 people max) on my own and gone up and down. I am so pleased with what James has achieved in just 20 minutes – I have lived with this for 30 years. Next stop London tubes!! *

From Dawn Claire on October 2, 2017

I was amazed that after a short session of about an hour my anxiety regarding driving seemed to have disappeared! *

I contacted James regarding my anxiety in relation to driving. I have always been a nervous driver but having lived in London for years I had managed to avoid driving by using the tube. Since moving to Winchester and having children the need to drive had become far greater. Driving has always caused me to feel extremely anxious and out of control. Despite owning a car, I would avoid driving as much as I could and if I did drive it would only be for very short trips that made me feel extremely anxious. My life had become very restricted as a result. Having unsuccessfully tried various types of therapy I was sceptical about the results my session with James would achieve.

I was amazed that after a short session of about an hour my anxiety regarding driving seemed to have disappeared! When I recalled the most difficult times I had experienced whilst driving the anxious feelings were no longer there. I obviously wanted to see how I actually felt getting into the car and driving, and I found myself going on an hour-long road trip the next day. It felt completely different to all my previous drives. I felt relaxed and more crucially, in control. I felt like whatever happened on the road I could deal with it and adapt to the changing situation as I drove along.

I am absolutely delighted with the results. I found James approach to be friendly targeted and highly effective. I thoroughly recommend him. *

From Suzie Gilbert on September 30, 2017

I am more calm and rational. *

I went to James after realising I needed to have a better grasp over my emotions. I was a very reactive and abrupt person due to a series of traumatic events in my past. I kept excusing my reactions based on other people’s actions, however, this caused a lot of disruptive relationships for me. After a phone consultation with James, he decided five structured sessions will allow me to let go of emotions to previous traumatic events. After my first session of Event Havening, I had let go of all my emotions tied to all the traumatic events. I remember the events, however, the draining emotions tied to those events had gone. Even when I think about the events a month after my first session – I don’t feel anything negative. Whilst I may react to certain situations now; I am not constantly over-reacting and I am more calm and rational.

I also did timeline therapy with James which allowed me to let go of core negative emotions, such as, fear and guilt. The burden of all the unhealthy amount negative emotions I felt before that session had drifted away. The fourth session was a more trance-like hypnotic state that felt like a “goodbye” to finally close the chapter to all my previous worries. Now, I feel more carefree and to just let things be.

The sessions were 100% worth-it and James was very encouraging and supportive to help me reach my goal. I highly recommend him. *

From Prita Singh on August 1, 2017

I have called upon the techniques James gave me in other stressful situations I have had since, with amazing success. *

I saw James over two separate issues which were causing me anxiety. Firstly a new fear of driving on the motorway and secondly how to tackle my nervousness speaking at a large conference. James gave me strategies to deal with both in a calm and non-threatening environment. He made me feel totally at ease and relaxed at our sessions. I have called upon the techniques James gave me in other stressful situations I have had since, with amazing success. I would definitely recommend James to anyone who finds they are living with an anxiety. It really can be life-changing. *

From Charlotte Thompson on June 28, 2017

This was an extremely worth while process. *

I saw James when my third child was about to start school. Starting a new career after 12 years of full-time mothering was extremely daunting. James was able to help me understand and realise what I wanted out of life and what I was prepared to put in. He taught me some techniques to help cope with the unwanted emotional baggage which had been holding me back.
I now feel fresh, nourished and have a healthy work/life relationship. This was an extremely worthwhile process. James is an expert in his field and very easy to open up to. *

From Jess Solloway on June 13, 2017

Very useful, insightful and energising. Thank you *

I had a coaching session with Fix My Mind when I was uncertain of my career path. After one session I had re-evaluated my goals, my values and my direction of focus for my business. Very useful, insightful and energising. Thank you James! *

From Jason Perfitt on June 8, 2017

My anxiety has gone, life is great, what more can I say*?

After several years of surgery and treatments (now sorted) I became very anxious about my health, my wellbeing and life in general. This was impacting on the enjoyment of my work, home and family and changing the positive, optimistic person I used to be. That’s when I contacted James. He was so positive from the start that he could help me, and only two sessions later wow has he helped! Only 3 weeks since we first spoke my ‘life’ has returned and I find I am the same person after all.

My second session with James was a revelation, he was so re-assuring, caring, and positive throughout. I felt chilled and relaxed after the first session and the second one left me so chilled that my blood pressure, which has been pretty high recently, was absolutely normal when I got home. Something I hope to achieve permanently using all the coping and relaxation skills James has taught me.

My anxiety has gone, life is great, what more can I say? My doctor offered me anti-depressants – James offered, and delivered, so much more. He has given me my life back, although he would probably say he just helped me find it again. Whichever one it is, thank you James I will be forever grateful.*

From Claire Goodwin on April 10, 2017

I cannot recommend him enough*

I had two sessions with James for job interview performance anxiety. I cannot recommend him enough. He was incredibly patient, and in addition to his bespoke treatment – he also gave me the tools to help myself… with success at the first interview! Thanks James.*

From Myla Hall on April 4, 2017

Would highly recommend this service*

I did a session and it has helped me no end. The Havening technique has helped with my anxiety and I’m now putting it into practice daily. Would highly recommend this service*

From Jemma Flower on March 7, 2017

I felt and continue to feel completely free. It's been the easiest thing I could have imagined*

My brother gave me hypnotherapy with James as a Christmas present in 2016. I was deeply sceptical – I had smoked for almost 20 years and had never successfully managed to stop by myself. After a 2 hour session one January morning I walked out of the room and felt different. I felt in control of my urge to smoke for the first time ever. After a while I deliberately put myself in situations where I might ordinarily want a cigarette to test whether it had worked. I found I could sit with friends who smoked and not want one. I could drink wine and not feel the need to smoke.

I felt and continue to feel completely free. It’s been the easiest thing I could have imagined. Most of the process is deeply logical and practical (in the sense that James spends time breaking down the myths you believe about smoking). The actual hypnotic state is like that bit when you wake up where you’re fully conscious of everything around you but the desire to move is removed allowing you to focus completely on what is being said.

I feel free from urges to smoke but more than that my time is free, my head is free from thinking about smoking. Planning when I would have my next one, checking I have enough to last, worrying about not being able to afford them, beating myself up about smoking and the impact on my health, worrying about what others think of me, whether I smelled of smoke. All of the preoccupation that goes with smoking is also gone but I haven’t felt the need to replace it with anything either. I can’t recommend hypnotherapy with James more highly – especially to any sceptics!*

From Rosie Wintour on February 9, 2017

All it took was one session with James to give me my life back*

I can not believe that I suffered for nearly 10 long years with anxiety and panic attacks and all it took was one session with James to give me my life back. I’d tried numerous therapies, CBT etc before, but the feeling of anxiety and the urge to “get out of the room” was so strong I often couldn’t make it through the treatment, or left feeling more anxious and reinforcing my negative thought process.

James was incredibly understanding and instantly made me feel at ease. The session room is comfortable and quiet without distractions and has a very homely feel. I not only felt my anxiety leave and my confidence grow, but my the end of the session I actually really enjoyed the social interaction (something that had alluded me for a very long time).

I feel like me again, and for that I can’t thank James enough!

It was such a relief to let go of all that tension I’d been carrying around with me, and to just be able to live my life with confidence. I’m no longer afraid, and I now actually feel a sense of excitement about facing situations that used to completely debilitate me.

I practice what James taught me every day, and am really looking forward to the rest of my life Anxiety free.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

Eternally grateful*

From Lindsey Collison on January 5, 2017

I have now had two sessions with James which I feel have transformed my life!*

I have now had two sessions with James which I feel have transformed my life! I initially approached him to see if he could assist with chronic nerves whilst playing tennis in competitive situations. James spent half an hour on the phone with me before I made an appointment, discussing my issues and finding out more about me as a person. This was reassuring in the first instance as I felt that this was someone who was passionate about what he does, someone who felt that he could help, and not someone who was simply after another client.

Before our session I completed James’s questionnaire which while time consuming was actually very helpful to reflect on the issues that were causing the feelings that I experienced.

During the first session with James, whilst initially a little apprehensive I quickly became calm and relaxed – at no point did I feel in any way pressurized, confused, or not in control. I was completely aware of my state of being, the surroundings and everything that I was saying and James was saying to me. James actually managed to resolve my issues very quickly, and gave me some wonderful techniques to use when I am playing which have transformed my enjoyment of the sport that I love.

I made another appointment to see James about an ongoing insomnia issue. This was a much more involved session, and quite emotionally hard work for me, but has literally been life transforming. I felt that James went the extra mile and really wanted to help me achieve a positive outcome. I actually thought that I was just one of life’s ‘bad sleepers,’ but now I know that there is no such thing. It is easy to exist with a problem and survive, but so much better to tackle the problem and turn it around. I will always feel indebted to James for what he has done.*

From Wendy Perring on November 7, 2016

I went with an open mind and experienced the most extraordinary ten minutes, yes that is all it took!!*

I went with an open mind and experienced the most extraordinary ten minutes, yes that is all it took!! And for the first time in decades I can travel in a lift, and even take a selfie at the same time, instead of making an escape plan in case it breaks down.

There has been a side effect of this treatment too; I can now tolerate spiders and approach each day with enthusiasm instead of pessimism.

Next on the list is a cave tour and an aeroplane journey! I am looking forward to my adventures, instead of backwards at my unhappiness.

Thank you James.*

From Pamela Johns on August 11, 2016

The fact I can do this is life changing*

I was very sceptical about hypnotherapy and openly admitted to James that I wasn’t sure I believed in it and whether it would work. However, I cannot express enough how grateful I am to him for completely curing me of my phobia. For years, I was unable to get into lifts and confined spaces. This phobia was not only hugely embarrassing and upsetting but negatively affected my behaviour and influenced my relationships, because it controlled where I could go and what I could do – essentially it controlled me.

I visited James as an almost last ditch attempt because I was desperate and I am so happy that I took this decision. He has a very calming manner about him and showed great patience with me as I repeatedly told him I didn’t think it would work. However, by the end of the session with him I was not only able to get into the incredibly small lift in his building, but I wanted to! I can’t express how amazing this was for me; I felt giddy with relief and like a weight had been lifted from my entire body. I subsequently spent the next days and weeks seeking out lifts in which I could get into, which is absolutely incredible after years of being paralysed with fear even thinking about them!

James kindly contacted me a few weeks later to follow up on the treatment and I said that I was scared I still felt anxious but that I didn’t need really know if did. He kindly asked me back to see him at no charge and talked me through certain techniques and again, at the end of this I was going up and down in the lift like it was as easy as brushing my teeth. The fact I can do this is life changing – James changed my life! This is an incredible thing to be able to admit about anyone.*
