Mind Yourself

Hypnotherapy and mind management are superb agents of change. They’re like a bunk up over a wall when you want to get to the other side; you need to want it, but hypnotherapy lifts you so that you can make the change yourself. In these uncertain times, we need that support more than ever. Whether you have financial worries, if you’ve developed some unhelpful lockdown habits or if you’re just plain scared for the health of you and your loved ones, we can work together. During the government lockdown (let’s say, until the coffee shops open) I’m suspending my usual billing structure. Everyone (no means testing, just old fashioned honesty) can pay what they can. And if that’s nothing, well, at the moment your mental health is more important than money. So don’t worry, just get in touch.

Mind Yourself are busy with online hypnotherapy- strictly pay what you can at this stage, but you get exactly the same service. You can text 07512791123 for a time slot, or email
