Frequently Asked Questions


Hypnosis is something you know how to do already, and often do each day.

Have you ever had one of those moments when you slip into a daydream?  How about when you become so engrossed in a book or movie that it seems as if time stands still, and you are unaware of what is going on around you?

These are moments of trance, and you are already very good at it.

Derek’s job is to work WITH you,  your cooperation is what makes hypnosis work. It is not Mind Control, you will not do anything you do not want to do.

All change does require a willingness on the client’s part to really want to change and accept the therapy.

You will always be aware of what you are doing.

Hypnosis is extremely effective in helping you make changes to your thought processes. In addition, hypnosis is a comfortable, relaxing, and enjoyable experience.


The most important thing to consider when selecting a Mind Coach and Hypnotherapist is to see their client’s feedback.

Derek has the highest number of 5-star reviews than any other Coach/Hypnotherapist in Europe.

He continually invests in his learning, having spent over £150,000 on various Courses, so you get the best, most up to date skills, experience and support.

He offers a confidential/professional service in relaxing surroundings set in a convenient location at his Bargate practice or via Skype if you are not local.

He provides (optional), complimentary support during and long after your sessions are complete.

The average number of sessions is 4,  but certain phobias can be treated in as little as 1-2 sessions.

However, this is entirely dependent on the complexity of the issue. This will be assessed during your Consultation .

Each session will run for approximately a 60-90 minute duration.

Again this is subject to the issue being treated.


NLP stands for ‘Neuro Linguistic Programming’

Neuro – Referring to the mind and nervous system of a human being.

Linguistic – Referring to the communication, both verbal and non-verbal, that we make with our unconscious mind.

Programming – The processes or strategies we run to produce the behaviour and therefore the results we get.

NLP is a powerful tool, especially when used in conjunction with hypnosis. It cements change at the unconscious level.

NLP processes are very fast. You will see changes at the unconscious level much quicker using NLP than with more traditional means of intervention.

NLP is a very comfortable set of processes that are non-intrusive. Most clients enjoy it because it is content free.


As an NLP practitioner I am less interested in WHAT the problem is, and more interested in HOW the client produces the unwanted behaviour.

So you can relax, you don’t have to relive any past negative events nor do you have to even tell me about it unless you want to, and that’s just fine.

It is your unique perception of events that ultimately influences your behaviour. So, once we understand the process or programs that are being run to produce the unwanted behaviour, it is a very simple and fast process to change the ‘programs’. This of course gives you much more empowering results.

If you can choose to change the ingredients of your past experiences, then by default you change the experience itself.

This is what you will be doing with NLP when you decide to book sessions with me.


TLT is Time Line Therapy™

Have you got or do you know anyone who has emotional baggage?

As we go through life, we tend to store negative emotions through significant emotional events we encounter, and all of this uses a lot of energy.

Imagine if you were able to release a new found energy by letting go of Anger, Sadness, Fear, Hurt and Guilt.

How much more purposefully could you use that energy?

Wouldn’t life be great if you could just put down the old negative emotions and limiting beliefs and instead choose to live an empowered and happy life?

Time Line Therapy (TLT) is a powerful therapeutic process that has evolved from Hypnosis and NLP.

TLT is a highly effective and powerful process for personal change that is both very fast and comfortable.

After the process you will be able to let go of limiting beliefs that are holding you back and learn from these experiences.

Most people find they move forward with more control and with a new clarity and purpose in life.
