Stress is any demand placed on your brain or body. People can feel stressed when multiple competing demands are placed on them.

Hypnotherapy for Depression

Depression is a common mental disorder that causes people to experience depressed mood, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, low energy, and poor concentration. Depression is different from feeling down or sad.

Most people go through periods of feeling down, but when you’re depressed you feel persistently sad for weeks or months, rather than just a few days.

John has been my saviour, if I hadn’t of met him I genuinely don’t think I would be here writing this review. I am now living with chronic recurrent depressive disorder rather than suffering from it and this change to my life has been possible due to the techniques I’ve learnt through Hypnosis with John

Got in touch with John because of my longstanding anxiety/stress issues and here I am 8 sessions later feeling recharged and raring to go. John is a great bloke who clearly knows his subject inside. Can’t recommend him enough

Google Review

Well, where do I start. Cracking bloke, almost certain he has helped me crack my needle / blood phobia. Highly recommended.
John gets a solid 10 from me, was 100% comfortable from the min I met him all the way through my treatment.

Google Review

I couldn’t give John a higher regard for what he can do, and for how he has helped me, he has a very relaxed approach to how he works and gets the information he needs to help you from what can be just a simple conversation. Take that first step…you won’t regret it

Google Review

Both me and the Mrs have seen John in the last 12 months. Me to stop a 19 year smoking habit which has worked wonders. Being on e-cigs I was concerned it was more habit than addiction that kept me using it but whatever it was, is now gone

John is an amazing person, he has helped me through lots of different problems from Anxiety attacks to going for an operation, he helped me over come my fears of this, I was nervous when I arrived at the hospital but remembered what he had said.

This is the first time I have had hypnotherapy, so I did not know what to expect. I’ve used relaxation apps previously to help me sleep, but this was on another level. John is a down to earth kind of guy that instantly makes you feel at ease
