I needed to lose weight and researched hypnotherapy. It made sense to me, so I went along to see Stuart and it was a really enjoyable experience for me. I was fed up with dieting and then just seeing the weight return. I wanted a more permanent lifestyle change. I realise hypnotherapy isn't a magic pill but I am delighted with the results. I am making far healthier choices when it comes to food and drink which is making the process alot easier.

Hypnotherapy is great is something I had wished I had done years ago. I hated public speaking and it was becoming more and more prominent in my job so I knew it was something I had to confront and tackle. Speaking with Stuart is easy and hypnotherapy is a very relaxing experience. We devised a plan together then worked to help me feel better about the scenario of public speaking.

I have been an avid procrastinator most of my life and found it very stressful to live this way. I decided to make a change and contacted Stuart to see if he could help. He explained that although hypnotherapy is not a magic pill, he would do his best to help me. I am now feeling much more in control of things and generally much happier. I found hypnotherapy to be a very relaxing and productive experience.

I got in touch with Stuart as I wanted help with my fear of heights. I was going on holiday to New York and the thought of going up those skyscrapers was making me feel very uneasy. Stuart is a very good listener and patient. We discussed different approaches to tackling it and he is very knowledgeable about hypnotherapy. I found it a very enjoyable experience and I am now very much looking forward to my holiday. Thanks again Stuart.

My weight had been spiralling out of control for the last few years, so I decided to give hypnotherapy a chance after reading all about it. I found it very beneficial for me and I feel much better for it. Weight is coming down but more importantly, I feel in control of it.

I was feeling very nervous about my important exams coming up that I wanted a different strategy. The first session with Stuart, we talked about what was going on and how this was impacting my performance. I felt very comfortable talking to Stuart and hypnotherapy itself is a fantastic experience. I feel much more confident about my exams now that I have different strategies to cope with them.

I decided to give hypnotherapy a shot after reading lots about it. I have been an anxious person my entire life and wanted to try and take control over it. Stuart is a great listener and very patient. We discussed my problem and then created a plan on how to improve it. I found hypnotherapy very useful and I feel much much more in control of myself now.

I needed to lose weight but realised that my eating habits and choices were very poor. I rarely ate any fruit or veg and would always have chocolate or cake most days. With Stuart, we were able to find out what the problems were and then how we were going to fix them. I found the change taking place relatively quickly and I am delighted with the result. I really enjoyed hypnotherapy. If I have any other issues in the future, then I will not hesitate to go back and see Stuart. Thanks.

I had been feeling that my life was in a bit of a rut. With Stuart, we identified what all my problems were and started to work on the solution state. It is a process that I have to go through but I find hypnotherapy very relaxing and I am feeling much better about my situation.

Working with Stuart was a real pleasure. I have been overweight most of my adult life and I decided to do something about it. After identifying the causes of the weight, Stuart was able to devise a program to help me shift it. I now feel much better about myself and in control of what I eat. Hypnotherapy was very relaxing and I found it thoroughly enjoyable. Thanks again.

I had been smoking for 10 years and reached a point I was adamant that I wanted to stop. The lifestyle that I lead means I am always surrounded by people who smoke. Stuart is very understanding and professional - with his support am I proud to say that I am now a non-smoker and I can play football without having to cough every 2 minutes!!! I found hypnotherapy to be a very relaxing and pleasant experience.

I had a summer holiday coming up with friends and I really wanted to lose weight for this. However, I knew the bigger issue was taking control of my food intake, especially when it came to sugary items like chocolate!!!! Having researched hypnotherapy, I made contact with Stuart. We were able to identify what I wanted to stop eating and what I wanted to replace that with. He is a very good listener and I am delighted with the outcome. It is not a quick fix but more of a lifestyle change which will help me greatly in the future.

I went to see Stuart for two reasons. I wanted to stop pulling my hair and to stop biting my nails. We were successful in achieving both! I am very happy now and feel much more confident about my appearance when out in public. Thank you for all your help. I found hypnotherapy to be a wonderful experience and would recommend that everyone tries it.

I sat the Discover your Talents programme as I wanted to find out my natural abilities so I could apply them to all aspects of my life. It really has helped me figure out who I am and what I want to do as a career going forward. Taking time out to consider my options has really helped and I can't thank Stuart enough for all of his support. I feel much more positive about myself and the direction I am heading in.
Beth

My anxiety levels were getting really high due to felling overwhelmed by many aspects of my life. After speaking to Stuart and I felt much better almost instantly. We devised a plan that would help me and I found hypnotherapy to be a fantastic experience. It is very comfortable and it really has made a big improvement in my life. Thanks again.
Sarah

I put all this time into getting a degree in a career field and then realized it’s not what I want to do. That’s a hard place to be. Then I took the Highlands and it gave me reassurance that I had all these other options to choose from. The Discover your Talents programme really helped me figure out who I am and what I want to do.
Michael

I had got myself into a negative thought cycle and I couldn't figure out how to change it. I thought I would try hypnotherapy and I am delighted I did. Stuart is very kind and easy to talk to. We identified what the issues were and I was able to change the emotions that I connected to past events. Hypnotherapy is a very relaxing experience and I am very glad that I took it on. Thanks again for all your support Stuart.

I have had really bad socially anxiety for most of my adult life. Stuart is very calm and patient and listened to all my concerns. We discussed different options and we choose anxiety control techniques through hypnotherapy. These have been invaluable and previous situations in which I felt anxious have now become normal. The mind is a wonderful thing when it works positively. I also found hypnotherapy a very enjoyable experience and would recommend Stuart to anyone. Thanks again.

I wanted to overcome my phobia of spiders and I thought I would try hypnotherapy. Spiders have always terrified me and I knew it was something that I wanted to change. Stuart was able to help me immensely - he is a terrific listener and we got to the root of the problem quickly. I found hypnotherapy very relaxing. If you have any problems - contact Stuart. He will do his utmost to help you.

I needed to stop my yo-yo dieting. I had been yo-yo dieting for the last eight years and needed this to stop. I wanted to be more in control my eating habits so I would stay the same weight all year round. Stuart knows so much about hypnotherapy and is a fantastic listener. He has helped me enormously and I am glad to say that the weight has fallen off but more importantly, I am keeping it off. I found hypnotherapy to be a very relaxing and enjoyable experience.
Patrick

I sat Edinburgh Hypnosis's Discover your Talents programme and I was delighted with the results. I had been doing a job I didn't enjoy but was unsure of what to do. The Discover your Talents programme is very thorough as it looks at your natural abilites and other areas to bring out a whole picture. It has given me a much clearer direction of where I am heading and I have found out so much information about myself. I am now considering hypnotherapy to curb my smoking habit. Stuart is great to work with and I would recommend him to anyone.

I had a very important exam coming up and was really worrying and stressing about it. This was having an impact on my sleep and ability to function while studying. I researched hypnotherapy and it sounded interesting. I went to see Stuart and we discussed the problem and how he thought he could help. After a few hypnotherapy sessions I was becoming much calmer and more in control of my stress and anxiety. This not only made me feel more confident about the exam but I was also able to absorb information easier. I would like to thank Stuart for all his effort.

I would like to thank Stuart for his invaluable help and support he has given me since I started seeing him about my addiction to chocolate. After practically a lifetime of chocolate (minimum of two bars every day). I have never had any chocolate since I started seeing Stuart in January. This new start has given me more energy to enjoy life as well as improving my mood swings with hypnotherapy. Thanks again.

I wanted to quit smoking and have tired alternative methods with no success. I wanted to try hypnotherapy and couldn't have been happier with the results. Admittedly, I was nervous about hypnotherapy initially but after meeting Stuart I was much happier. He is very kind and easy to talk to. We got to the root cause of why I smoked and I am pleased to say that I am a non-smoker. Hypnotherapy is a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. Will definitely be back to help with other issues.

I have struggled with my weight since attending University almost 20 years so after researching hypnotherapy, I thought I would give it a try. The process does make sense. After committing to it, I contacted Stuart and he couldn't have been nicer. He explained hypnotherapy thoroughly and I really enjoyed the process. I have managed to no longer eat when bored and my choices and portions are much better. Thanks again.

Stuart is one of the most reliable persons i have met in my professional career. He is intellectual hardworking man. He takes the things to new heights by his passion and creative thinking. He explores the true depth of each situation and work accordingly then things work for him. I wish him every success in his life and his knowledge of hypnotherapy is outstanding.

Stuart at Edinburgh Hypnosis really helped me from the first session. A true professional. Before I tried it I didn´t think hypnotherapy would be of any help to my problems, but a friend convinced me to give it a try and for that I´m thankful. I can strongly recommend Edinburgh Hypnosis to everyone. No problem is too small or too big to solve. Try it out and you wont regret it. Thank you Stuart for all your help!

As someone that was really skeptical about hypnotherapy, I have to say that Stuart really changed my mind. I only went in for a few sessions to help deal with anxiety and stress, but after just a few sessions not only did I feel much less anxious I learned some great techniques to help cope in the future.
My sense of self worth and confidence really sky rocketed and I felt great. I would highly recommend Stuart to anyone.

I was struggling with my job and was using alcohol to cope. I knew this was not the path I wanted to go on but I didn't know where to find help. Stuart helped me with my alcohol addiction through hypnotherapy and with his career test. I feel so much better about myself and I now feel that I have a brighter future ahead of me.
Chris

I was given Stuart's details by a friend who went to see him. I wanted to stop smoking but previous attempts had failed. Stuart is very knowledgeable about hypnotherapy and put me at ease as he answered all my concerns. The session was actually enjoyable and I now have no urge to smoke - I can only explain it as that was in my past but now in the present, it is no longer part of my routine.
Martin

I had a terrible fear of spiders for over 40 years and I decided to try hypnotherapy after failing with other techniques. Stuart was very understanding and compassionate. He was able to design a hypnotherapy programme for me that I was very comfortable with. After having the hypnotherapy sessions I feel so much better about spiders and they no longer have a negative impact on my life. Thanks again Stuart.
Keith

I went to see Stuart as I felt my career was going in the wrong direction and it was making me miserable. I had spent a long time working for the same firm but I needed change but I just didn't know what to change to. Stuart's programme is very thorough and I have found out so much about myself that I didn't expect. I am now a lot happier and feel that I am making confident strides into my new exciting adventure, which I would struggled to discover without Stuart's support.
Michelle

I had been a constant nail biter for twenty years and I got really fed up and embarrassed with them. I decided to contact Stuart to see if he could help me. After just a few sessions, I was starting to change and now I have fully grown nails that look wonderful. Even my partner and customers are stunned at the difference. I feel really proud that I made this change thanks to Stuart. Hypnotherapy is a wonderful experience and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to improve themselves. 
Steven

I had some trouble moving on from a past relationship. Stuart is very kind and is easy to talk to. I was apprehensive about hypnotherapy but once Stuart explained it, I was willing to commit to hypnotherapy. It has really helped me move on and in other aspects of my life. I can't thank Stuart enough and I am now considering sitting his career test. Best wishes, Steven.

I went to see Stuart as I had a dreadful fear of the dentist and I had not visited one in several years. Stuart was able to understand this and help me overcome this fear. I have now visited the dentist and I felt I coped well. I would definitely recommend Stuart if you need any help. I found hypnotherapy to be very relaxing and enjoyable.
Grant

I would just like to say how much I appreciate the help Stuart gave me, I had a problem with my diet and it was more of a phobia than anything. I couldn't eat certain things due to the texture and appearance of foods. Stuart couldn't be more welcoming and happier to help me out. He makes you feel so at ease and relaxed it's unbelievable. I can now eat more foods than I imagined and would recommend Stuart and hypnotherapy to anyone needing help.
Stephen

I visited Stuart at his wonderful Edinburgh clinic as I was looking to alter a behavioural pattern that I have had for 20 years. I was feeling a bit nervous and unsure about what to expect from hypnotherapy. However, Stuart is very friendly and explained everything about hypnotherapy. After a short time, I was feeling much better about myself and in control of my problem. Thanks, Stuart.

Hypnotherapy is something that has always intrigued me, so I contacted Stuart as I wanted to stop smoking. I had been a heavy smoker most of my life and it worked a treat for me.

I contacted Stuart as I wanted help with my weight. Stuart is really kind and takes time to listen to all your concerns. Hypnotherapy and Stuart have helped me stop snacking during the day and given me motivation to exercise more. I was feeling nervous about hypnotherapy initially but I would now recommend it to anyone. For me, hypnotherapy was a thoroughly enjoyable and effective process.

I was a bit sceptical and apprehensive going into my first session, but after Stuart explained the process and the benefits of hypnotherapy, my nerves were put to rest. Hypnotherapy, and Stuart, have given me my confidence back, and I, in turn, am a much happier, more energized person. I would certainly recommend Stuart and hypnotherapy to anyone who needs natural assistance in overcoming a phobia or problem.

Stuart has a very positive style. This was just perfect for me in the situation I was in. Every hypnotherapy session I had was a real positive tonic- so easy to relax, felt in control, and helped me to make positive steps forward with my life. Thanks for all your help.

I had a session with Stuart to help me deal with pain I was having in my neck and head. Before my session I was a little apprehensive about hypnotherapy, as I didn't know exactly what to expect. I needn't have worried as Stuart put me at ease, helped me to relax and helped me deal with the pain. I was fully aware about what was going on around about me during the session and I would recommend Stuart to others.

I met with Stuart to help me reduce the amount of sugar in my tea using hypnotherapy. He had a very professional and relaxed approach with hypnosis which has resulted in me no longer wishing to add sugar to my tea. Excellent success. Would be happy to recommend Stuart.
