Before I became a full-time professional Hypnotherapist in September 2007 I spent 20 years working with, caring for people with physical disabilities, learning difficulties, Autism and Challenging Behaviours. Since I became a therapist in 2007 I have continued to work with clients of all diversities in a supportive and non-judgemental way. I’ve also spent 10 years as a volunteer for the British Red Cross and 5 years as a Samaritan Listening Volunteer. In my lifetime I have known, been friends with and worked with people of all diversities be it disability, faith, ethnicity, sexuality or alternative lifestyles in an accepting, non-judgemental and supportive way
Myself and all other therapists of Wellbeing Hypnotherapy & Mindfulness respect and appreciate all people irrespective of age, ethnicity, gender, disability, religion, sexuality or their forms of relationships and lifestyle choices including gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, asexual, agender, polyamorous, pansexual, pangender or belonging to the Kink or Fetishes communities.

They still wanted to improve their quality of therapy service and ability to help and support people with anxiety, depression, trauma and other difficulties so they both continued their training and practice to improve their knowledge, skills and experience including further hypnotherapy, counselling, mindfulness and other therapies training.

We are aware of other Hypnotherapy Diplomas, Mindfulness training/diplomas and other therapy training that requires only 5 hours online training, 2 days, 6 days or 10 days of training many without any exams to check level of understanding and ability. In 2020 I saw a weekend course, 2 day Diploma in Hypnotherapy costing £250 advertised on Facebook, previously I have seen a Hypnotherapy course, online training costing £50. My wife was awarded a Mindfulness Diploma in 2019 which took her 6 hours of online training and cost her £25.

Client Reviews & Testimonials
My untreated accumulated trauma and my husband’s untreated accumulated trauma, started to make my marriage a source of my overall demise. In the past few years my career, my income, my health and my sanity came pretty much close to nothing. When I met Adrian, I felt very, very lucky, indeed. The combination of low… price, amount of his qualifications, experience and expertise combined with the fact that he is one of the most normal, down to earth, real, non judgmental, kind, loving persons that I have met was not a combination too often encountered. His unconditional understanding, hypnotherapy methods and their application together with mindfulness practice that he taught me have helped me to resolve many traumas and make me stronger at my core. On top of that, he REALLY cares for his patients, and it is his expertise, personal qualities and care that healed me, empowered me and helped me to unravel myself from my inner limitation, confusion and pain. Also, my son who is in his twenties has just started to see Adrian and finds his therapy extremely helpful, always looking forward to his next session.

I’ve been having therapy with Adrian for various issues and highly recommend, he is very dedicated, caring and great at what he does. It’s clear that helping people is not ‘just a job’ for Adrian and that he truly cares and takes pride in helping to improve people’s lives. I am so grateful as he… has helped me make massive progress, so thank you so much Adrian :). ( 5 Star Client Review ) Posted 18 Feb 2020 * Read more “Hypnotherapy for Eating Disorders”
I live in Marrakesh, Morocco and was going through a very low patch emotionally, related to a dysfunctional relationship I was unable to get myself away from. Therapy options are virtually non existent here and a close friend, also in Morocco, on discovering my plight, highly recommended I contact Adrian as she had benefited hugely… from therapy sessions with him via Skype. Adrian quickly identified my need for Traumatic Incident Reduction, and I had several Skype sessions with Adrian which helped enormously and to the point that within less than 2 months I didn’t need any more sessions. I found Adrian to be a genuine, warm, empathetic, humorous person, always professional and extremely supportive with a no-nonsense approach to the course of action I needed to embark on to recover from my emotional low point. Without doubt it was money well spent, and knowing that I have access to Adrian via Skype should the need arise in the future is a source of comfort in itself.

“I went to Adrian suffering from performance anxiety, which was causing me erectile dysfunction. This is very embarrassing for a very physically fit 33 year old and was really affecting my confidence! Adrian immediately put me at ease, and really listened to my problem and how it was affecting me. With a course of Hypnotherapy… and Mindfulness Meditation, he has really reduced my overall anxiety levels and this has resulted in me having very hard and strong erections while masturbating. I am very pleased with his hypnotherapy sessions and support and I am very confident in the very near future my sexual function will be back to what it was! I am very much enjoying the journey!!” (Five Star)* Read more “Rob H, Erectile Dysfunction”
“While suffering from anxiety, depression and lack of confidence after job loss and relationship difficulties, I researched various therapies; having read an article in a peer-reviewed journal that showed changes in people undertaking mindfulness training, I decided on mindfulness combined with hypnotherapy as the combination of approaches I felt would be most effective and appropriate… for me. A web search of therapists showed that Adrian provides this combination. I have found the combination of therapies to be very effective for me, and Adrian’s generous spirit, kindness, non-judgemental attitude and highly ethical approach as a therapist enormously supportive. This good therapist-client relationship helped me also to feel confident in being open about undergoing therapy; I have recommended Wellbeing to colleagues, friends and family.” (Five Stars) Read more “Elizabeth, Anxiety Depression”
