About me

Welcome to Transformational Hypnotherapy. You have taken the first step on your journey for positive change and to be in control of the life you desire.

What do you want to change?

When you work collaboratively with a Hypnotherapist you can trust, you will address any current problems you are facing and together work through any unresolved difficulties from the past. This in turn will enable you to achieve a greater sense of freedom, well-being and hope for the future. Using a variety of other tools including Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Neuro Liguistic Programming (NLP) depending on your individual needs, will help with rapid change. In this way you can hope to gain the most from therapy and achieve real results that stay with you.

What my clients say:
Fear of Enclosed spaces, flying
"Thought you might like an e-postcard from Venice with a couple of pics from our 40th wedding anniversary trip, as you must take a lot of the credit for it happening at all. It was a fabulous trip and the plane journey was absolutely fine. I actually really enjoyed the return flight as I knew I wasn't going to be worried. 
I just wanted to say a thank you from both of us. 
With love and thanks from Venice.


"My new, more positive outlook already seems to be paying dividends.  I feel so much more confident to connect with people and follow up those leads; it’s having a very positive impact on my business and, on a personal level, I’m no longer wasting time and energy worrying about all the things which could go wrong.  Instead, that energy is being diverted into positive things in both my business and personal life." S.

Following a couple of unsuccessful job interviews, my confidence was knocked and I was feeling increasingly stressed and anxious about the whole process. My nerves were getting in the way of being able to present myself as I wanted to. Kevin was recommended to me and I had one session with him prior to a recent interview. I’m not sure how it worked but I certainly left him feeling more positive and optimistic about the interview I had the following week. I actually enjoyed the interview process when it arrived and felt in control and confident. I was pleased to find I was also successful. The session with Kevin was time and money well spent - highly recommended.

I injured my back 15 months ago and have suffered severe back and leg pain since then. I also became very depressed. Despite receiving various forms of hospital treatment including two back operations this year I was still in pain and could not walk properly until I started some hypnotherapy sessions with Kevin.

From day one I noticed an immediate improvement and started to walk short distances using a walking stick before the pain started. After several sessions I have become so much more mobile and able to walk longer distances unaided.

I now feel much better in myself and fully motivated in in my attempt to achieve a full recovery. My family and friends have also commented on how much better I look in myself.

Thank you so much Kevin.


I have benefited from Kevin's excellent Transformational Hypnotherapy. I am more than happy to recommend him.

I have been working with Kevin for the last few weeks on a weight loss programme. I have shed 7 pounds in three weeks and can see and feel the difference already. I honestly haven't felt hungry but am making more balanced and healthier choices. I don't feel the need to deprive myself of the occasional treat, nothing is off limits. I feel much more in control. If your serious about wanting to shed weight and make a change for the better I can recommend Kevin to help you achieve your goals.
