Not all hypnotherapy can be done face to face. Hypnotherapy online is often the perfect alternative.

The perfect scenario would be for every client to visit me for hypnotherapy and psychotherapy in person. This isn’t always possible, however. Some clients may be unable to find a suitable hypnotherapist in their local area. Clients can also,  sometimes, be unable to leave their homes due to disability or agoraphobia. At the moment Covid 19 is rendering hypnotherapy online the only game in town.

There are many reasons why a person may not be able to reach Reading, Thame, London, Wallingford or Oxford but who would still like to work with me.

Hypnotherapy online, with me, when you’ve decided that I am the right person to help you, is a much more powerful potential than working with somebody more local when the match doesn’t feel quite right.

At the time of revising this page the whole world has been affected by the coronavirus / covid 19 virus. Face to face hypnotherapy has become an impossibility.

Yet the number of people needing hypnotherapy has, if anything, increased. Emetophobia, health anxiety, anxiety of other kinds, depression and OCD have all sky-rocketed in recent months.

Increased time at home has also high-lighted problems with anger management, alcohol abuse, weight management, stress, loneliness and all kinds of other issues.

Effective hypnotherapy can be  delivered online, from the comfort and safety of your own home. You don’t have to continue waiting for months for your local hypnotherapist to have a space free. You don’t have to wait for months until the government allows hypnotherapists to see clients face to face again. We could get going and probably within the next week or so.

Hypnotherapy online is a viable alternative

depression hypnotherapyIt’s for these reasons, therefore, that I’m happy to offer hypnotherapy online to those clients who are genuinely unable to visit me in person and for whom there is no suitable alternative in their local area.

I’ve worked with clients from France, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Jersey, Scotland, The Cayman Islands, Spain, Sweden, Norway, The United States, Japan and other nations across the globe. Tomorrow I’ll be meeting a new client from New Zealand. Distance is truly no longer a problem.

Australians, Canadians, South Africans, Indians are now all able to work with me through the possibilities opened up by the internet. If you speak English and need some help, get in touch! Wherever you live, there’s no place too far away from progress and a happier future.

I have worked with pretty much every condition using Zoom. There’s no problem which is too ‘serious’ for this means of communication. If you’re happy with the idea of working with me online, there is no problem which I have encountered which needs to deter you.

It is surprisingly easy to build a good relationship over skype-like televisual media. Therapy does work well through this medium and there’s a growing body of research to support this assertion. Some therapists used to sniff at the idea. With Covid 19 driving them to make the choice of bankruptcy or swallowing their disapproval, most are choosing to keep their practices going. Hypnotherapy on the internet has come of age.

I have no hesitation, therefore, in being happy to work with people from across the globe, should timing and other factors be mutually convenient. I have been working online for eight years and so am more than used to working through this medium.

Bear in mind that some states, particularly but not exclusively within the USA, place restrictions on foreign therapists working with their citizens. You may have to make some checks as to the legality of our working together prior to agreeing to do so.

Hypnotherapy online? How does it work?

hypnotherapy and self-confidenceIf you would like to work with me using hypnotherapy online then here’s how it works.

1. Contact me via telephone (07786 123736 / 01183 280284 / 01865 600970) or email me at We can then begin to discuss what brings you to speak with me and I can assess:

a) whether I am the right person for you

b) whether or not Zoom is the appropriate medium for therapy.

2. I will then, if we agree to work together, send you some documents for completion. These documents ask for basic personal details and establish the appropriate therapeutic contractual relationship. I will also provide you with my details. I’ll then ask you to complete and return these documents prior to our first session. We will arrange a mutually convenient time and a fee for our first session and I will provide you with payment details,

3. I’ll ask you to pay via paypal or bank transfer (for clients within the UK) before you call at the arranged time. Don’t worry if you don’t have a paypal account. Paypal also allows you to pay via credit or debit card. If you prefer you could also pay via bank transfer. 

4. At the arranged time I will be ready and waiting for your call. Try to call from a quiet and private place where you can be physically comfortable. 

What? You don’t actually use skype?

fear of public speakingI don’t actually use Skype for online hypnotherapy. It is not approved by UKCP due to confidentiality issues. Your safety and confidentiality are my major concern and so I generally use a program called Zoom. You may have heard of some security issues surrounding Zoom at the beginning of the Covid 19 crisis. Those were quickly patched up and in hundreds of sessions I have never once experienced a problem. Other media such as Vsee and Whatsapp are also acceptable alternatives, if you’d prefer.

Zoom offers the same functionality as Skype, is free and has none of the confidentiality concerns. It is fully compliant with UKCP, GDPR and other requirements.

It’s always marginally preferable to see a hypnotherapist face to face. Where that proves impossible, however, therapy online is a perfectly acceptable alternative.

In the last few weeks alone I’ve been using hypnotherapy online to help people with erectile dysfunction, anger management, health anxiety, anxiety in general, depression, smoking cessation, binge eating disorder, asperger’s syndrome related issues, stress, grief, relationship issues, phobias, alcohol abuse, tinnitus, exam anxiety, dermatillomania, trichotillomania, porn addiction, gambling addiction, infertility issues, job interview nerves, OCD, confidence with walking after a fall, obsessive thoughts, shy bladder/paruresis, hyperhydrosis, substance abuse, weight loss and so much more. Whatever the problem may be, hypnotherapy online could help.

Many of my clients have achieved success through hypnotherapy online. You could too. If you can’t find any local therapist who can help you with your problem then consider seeing me online. I’d be glad to help you.

Calling via Zoom is free, reliable and easy. You can download it here:

Please use the test call facility in order to ensure that your microphone and camera are working, prior to the session.
