    • James has a very honest yet approachable style and knows how to put you at ease. From the onset, James explained that this would not be a quick fix for me and I still have some work to do on myself but he has taught me techniques to help ease my fear which are extremely useful. It has given me a confidence boost which is always a bonus and I have left the sessions feeling very calm with a positive outlook towards the future diminishment of my fear. All in all, it has definitely been worth it and I would recommend for anyone with fears that can cause extreme anxiety. *

    • From unsure and nervous to conquering a phobia I've let control aspects of my life for the past forty years - in a matter of minutes! Still can’t quite believe it, I feel a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. James is friendly, approachable and in my humble opinion, a genius! Thank you *

    • James helped me with my horse riding anxiety after a bad fall. I really appreciated his open, forthright approach. I have had an excellent result. I have just returned from a week of horse riding abroad and can honestly say that ‘horse behaviour’ that would have terrified me beforehand (e.g., horse refusing to walk forward and backing up close to a cliff edge) I was able to deal with in a cool, confident way that I know I am capable of. I feel that James really put the effort into the session and as a result has helped me enormously. *

    James Mallinson — Co-Founder Fix My Mind

    Hair pulling or trichotillomania affects a surprising number of people – though it is an issue that is not commonly talked about.

    If you suffer from it, you’ll know how hard it is to stosoop – you’ll also probably know that it is a kind of impulse control disorder that is often associated with stress and anxiety.

    Here’s the good news: hypnotherapy for trichotillomania can be incredibly effective.

    Your friends may imagine that people like you who pull their hair do it in large clumps – when this isn’t always the case. As with any type of physical reaction to things that bother us or cause us stress – including thumb sucking and nail biting – you’ll know that there are different levels of trichotillomania.

    A related condition is called dermatillomania – which you have if you can’t stop picking at your skin.

    As a highly-trained Clinical Hypnotherapist with many years of experience helping people with these conditions, I can tell you that just a few sessions may be all that’s needed to see significant, positive change.

    Yes – hypnotherapy really is that quick.

    Addressing the compulsion to pull hair

    The cause of hair pulling is usually psychological, so it is often something that can be effectively treated by a skilled hypnotherapist. The psychological factor leads to the compulsion – which often has emotional triggers and associative cues attached, such as watching TV. I address all of these elements during treatment.

    When people like you have a problem with pulling their hair compulsively, the net result can be feelings associated with lower self-esteem, such as frustration, embarrassment and of loss of control.

    You may pull out your hair to relieve anxiety, but the short lived relief that ensues quickly fades and the problem intensifies – sometimes, sadly, in a very visible way.

    Using hypnotherapy to stop hair pulling

    Hypnosis helps in many cases. If you want to stop pulling, or if self-induced hair loss is becoming an issue you can no longer ignore, booking an online hypnotherapy session or one that takes place in person couldn’t be easier.

    At the moment, I am also offering 10% off all treatment solutions to help people through the current cost of living crisis.

    I look forward to helping you soon.

    About Trichotillomania

    Often shortened to just “trich”, trichotillomania or hair pulling is an overwhelming feeling that someone has to pull out hair. While usually this involves the hair on their head, eyebrows, eyelashes and body hair can sometimes be the focus, too.

    Sometimes, it is seen as a kind of addiction. The more hair you pull out, the more you want to keep doing it. People affected, however, don’t enjoy the effects of their activities – such as bald patches and a poor sense of body image.

    Searching for solutions to hair pulling

    Some people try therapies in which they are encouraged to choose an alternative over hair pulling in times of stress or anxiety. However, nothing, in my experience, is as fast or effective as hypnotherapy.

    It can help to address the underlying cause of the issue and often uncover why you started pulling in the first place.

    It can help a very awkward, often highly stressful habit to become a thing of the past. It can help people to feel in more control of their life.

    How Hypnotherapy for hair pulling can help

    You pull hair unconsciously – it happens automatically. Hypnotherapy helps you to deal with the emotional triggers behind this.

    Your triggers are likely to be stress-related. Perhaps you engage in hair pulling when anxious about something specific, or in the presence of a certain person. During hypnotherapy, we are able to develop alternative reactions to these things and break the cycle that has governed your life so far.

    Hypnosis gives you alternative self-soothing strategies and the tools you need to face the future with new hope, giving the scalp time to recover and a new life to begin.

    Why choose me as your hypnotherapist

    I became a hypnotherapist because of a life-changing hypnotherapy session of my own in 2006. This helped me to re-find myself and discover new hope.

    So, whatever you’re feeling now, I’ve been in a similar place.


    I am an expert at dealing with anxiety and have completed more than 5,000 sessions of hypnotherapy.


    I only work with clients that I believe I can help, want to help and have a good chemistry with.


    Most clients need just two sessions to see a significant improvement. This is quicker than virtually any other therapist.


    I am one of the UK’s most reviewed therapists. More than 90% of clients give me a 5-star review.


    Before I saw my very first client, a decade ago, I had completed more than 1,000 hours of training. Unfortunately, any person can call themselves a therapist without any training. Do not put your mental health in the hands of amateurs.

    Fix My Mind


    Since the appointment a month ago, I can keep my hands still and most of all, I don’t want to pull my hair. The only way I can explain it is if I attempt to play with my hair like I used to, my hand feels like the opposite side of a battery to my head and there’s so much energy in between pushing my hand away. It’s honestly crazy! I’m not sure what I expected after seeing James, but it certainly wasn’t this miracle! His calming nature, his clear skills, and his empathy are fabulous, I couldn’t recommend him enough. *

    What happens during a hypnotherapy session?

    The first thing we’ll do is have a complimentary exploratory phone call, lasting up to 20 minutes. During this, you’ll have chance to talk to me about what’s going on, for me to answer your questions and make sure we’re a good fit.

    Before your actual session, you’ll fill in a detailed questionnaire that will help me understand your symptoms, habits, history and patterns of hair pulling, for example. This allows me to tailor your treatment plan and ensures that the time you spend in the session itself is used as effectively as possible.

    Over the course of your 90-minute session, you will feel calm and in control, and I’ll use a combination of the most effective modern and classic hypnotherapeutic tools and techniques (including Havening and NLP techniques).

    How to book your hypnotherapy session

    Hopefully, you now feel reassured about the hypnotherapy process – and feel ready to take the next step. In most cases, you’ll need only a single session or a couple of sessions to be better.

    Each session will be 90-minutes long. This means we achieve so much more than you can in the traditional 50-minute ‘therapy hour’ that most therapists provide. For many clients, online hypnotherapy sessions are the quickest and easiest way to address a specific problem and to get the treatment they need.

    A special offer from my hypnotherapy practice TO YOU

    As part of my ‘Covid recovery’ promotion, I’m reducing my fees by 10% to only £290 + VAT per session.  I have very limited availability and if you’d like to know more about how I may be able to help you, then do get in touch now.

    I will put 100% effort into working with you and the techniques that I use are very powerful for most people. As with all high quality therapy types, success varies for each patient and there can be no guarantees. In fact, I’d recommend running a mile from a hypnotherapist who says they offer a guarantee.
