     Freya Ridings Hypnosis to lose weight Paul McKenna

    Singer-songwriter Freya Ridings has revealed she lost more than 10 stone thanks to the help of hypnotherapist Paul McKenna. He is the author of popular self-help books including I Can Make You Thin, Quit Smoking Today Without Gaining Weight, I Can Mend Your Broken Heart and I Can Make You Rich. Whilst starting out as a DJ Paul McKenna interviewed a Hypnotist on his radio show and decided that this was the path he wanted to tread for himself. McKenna is one of the world’s best-known hypnotherapists and his books have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. 

    Speaking to Paul McKenna on his new Positivity Podcast, which has also featured interviews with Simon Cowell, Gok Wan, Mel B and Katie Piper, the singer said she was “quite big” growing up before her mother gave her one of Paul’s books when she was just 16. It helped her in her journey to lose over 140lbs.  

    She said that she felt isolated at school, suggesting her weight may have been a response to that.

    “I was quite sort of big, growing up. Simultaneously, being isolated at school, a part of that was almost the shell I had put around myself. And you have actually been a huge part of that journey which is why I’m really excited to talk to you. My mum gave me your book when I was 16 and I remember reading it in the garden and it was boiling hot and summer and I didn’t have any friends at the time and I ended up losing over 10 stone, just at home dancing in the kitchen and doing what you did with your incredible book. So thank you so much for that, you’ve had a monumental impact on my life.”

  2. Hypnosis sessions on skype for stress and anxiety about coronavirus Covid-19

    Can I use hypnotherapy on Skype to help with worries about Coronavirus?

    With the rise in the number of cases of coronavirus around the world more and more people are suffering from stress and anxiety about what could happen to them or their family if they caught the coronavirus.

    As a therapist who sees people both in person and online via Skype I have already seen an increase in people looking for some help in dealing  with the stress and also those who cannot visit, because they are either too far away from me or are self isolating because they know someone or have even contracted coronavirus themselves.

    I first started using skype to help people suffering from Stress and Anxiety as well as Phobias and Insomnia. It quickly became clear that I was able to work with people who I would otherwise not be able to help. I started working with clients who were abroad using the Skype technology, and Hypnosis, EMDR, EFT and other techniques helping them to Quit Smoking and Lose Weight without diets. From sweeden Italy, Ireland and Germany, to the USA Spain and Hungary and it grew from there.



    Now I am also able to work with so many more people around the world who are many miles away from my location. Would you like some help in the comfort of your own home? Now you don't even need to leave your house to make the changes that you really want and let go of the past.

    Where you are really doesn't matter any more ! 
    Skype Hypnotherapy and all of the ways that it can help come to you in the comfort of your own home.

    You can watch my SKYPE Therapy FAQ Video below to find out more about how a session of Hypnotherapy on Skype can help you: it should answer any questions that you have about how things work...


    How does Skype Hypnosis work?

    As long as you have an internet connection and a computer with a webcam and microphone then we can work together. In fact often clients work with me using iPads and other tablets and phones to make it even easier. As I have been working online with Skype hypnosis sessions for a long time at first most people used their PC or Laptop, but now people can use their phone and even listen to recordings that I make them on their phones as an extra benfit as well.

    Hypnosis via Skype is really easy for you to experience. You don't need to travel to me. So it saves you the stress of that journey, no need to worry about traffic jams, or being late for your hypnotherapy appointment. I use many different techniques which mean that we can help you get exactly what you want and I even make you personalised Hypnosis MP3s that you can listen to at home whenever you want to.

    You may even find that being in your own home environment really helps to make you feel even more safe and secure.

    We can talk and even do our full sessions via your webcam or we can chat and then I can make you a custom MP3 and send it to you so that you can listen in your own time. This technology really brings your chance to have therapy so much closer. To find out more you can either drop me an email by clicking on Email Mark Powlett
