“I wanted to give up smoking. I knew it was no good for me, but kept doing it regardless. I though I would give this a go and it was the boost I needed to put me in the right mind set to finally quit. I now feel like a non-smoker. It’s been 14 days, which I have packed in for before, but this time I know it’s for good. Thank You James”


Never thought I would ever be able to give up smoking, 34 years of being a heavy smoker. I just couldn’t see me quitting, I had tried a few years back, but failed. I ended up with some health problems, and desperately needed to do something to stop. A friend suggested Hypnotherapy. 
Well, I decided to go for it! What can I lose? I’m extremely happy to say I have been a non- smoker for almost a month, no more coughing fits, no more chest pains, I can actually taste more, smell things more and that’s just fantastic!


James was very friendly and polite and very patient with me. I had hypnotherapy for smoking cessation. The session was good and very insightful, however the after effects were not what I thought. 
I had hoped that the hypnotherapy would help me to deal with the cravings and reduce the amount of will power required. I personally found that I needed a lot of will power afterwards. 
Having said that, I am still not smoking, and already feeling the benefits in my health and my pocket! 
Thank you for your continued support during this stage.

It’s been a month since I had my last cigarette. This is truly unbelievable. I lived to smoke and smoked to live. Simple. Everybody knew that . And….. 30 days ago, after just one hypnotherapy session with James its all changed. James is amazingly calm, empathetic and understanding guy. He not only helped me on that day but was in touch and ready to help when crisis arisen. I am truly grateful for your help and support. I will recommend James to everybody. Thank you ever so much James.

James, I can’t thank you enough. You have really helped me and I feel so much lighter. No thoughts of smoking and I have already told two very trusted friends that I’m now a non-smoker (they were so supportive). I don’t smoke anymore.

Health is wealth. I’m really grateful for James‘ help, I couldn’t have imagined before that I would of benefited the way I have. I was always conscious of my breathing and struggled every day, all day. I use quite a lot of medication for my asthma, but had been really struggling for the past year and a half.  I had every test imaginable at the hospital to see what was wrong with me, but was non the wiser. I had a “seed” planted in my mind that I could not breathe or catch my breath properly. James practiced different techniques to help me relax and stop overthinking, and then to forget about ‘it’ completely. James literally threw the seed away. I can breath freely now. I can do so much more than before and I cannot recommend James highly enough. I would use definitely use James again, and would highly recommend his services to family and friends if needed.

James has a very calming yet soothing voice which makes it easier to talk to him, and through these past 10 days he’s always been at the other end of the phone if I needed to get in touch. If ever I need Hypnotherapy again, he would be the first person I’d contact. I would, and have recommended James to friends and family.


The last couple of days I’ve noticed a massive improvement. It has taught me that there is more to life than just smoking my life away. My relationship with my family is stronger than ever. It has really opened my eyes to people. Now I know the true meaning of friends and I’ve gained so much confidence in myself. I am truly grateful for this experience. My life will never be the same.

I contacted James after trying so many different ways to give up smoking, cold turkey, vaping, cut down, gum, tablets, nothing worked. I could not shift the habit! 
When we spoke on the phone, he talked through the process and told me it was important that I was committed to giving up to ensure the process worked. I quickly booked in after this.

Honestly, I was sceptical as Hypnotherapy is not something I have done previously however, James was happy to answer any questions I had.

The 2 hour session itself was relaxed, we talked through my lifestyle regarding smoking and then we started.

Whilst I was relaxed, I felt in complete control throughout the whole process.

James said to me after the session, ‘You’re not an ex-smoker, you’re a NON SMOKER now’. I smoked right up until I went into my session with James and I have not touched a cigarette since I walked out! 
I have not had cravings or anything! Yes, I’ve thought about it but it’s mind over matter and following my session with James, my mind instantly takes over whenever I think about it and tells me ‘You don’t need it’ and I get on with my day, as quick as that!!!!!

I feel healthier, happier, more energetic, I have more money in my pocket and best of all, I don’t stink of it!

I would highly recommend James and his Hypnotherapy to anyone! I have smoked around 10-15 a day for the last 12 years and now, NOTHING! I am amazed, I am very thankful to James, my friends and family are proud and I’m proud of myself!

It doesn’t stop when you walk out of the room, James kept in contact with me throughout the first week and kept me going!

Thank you James, for EVERYTHING…


“It’s weird. I don’t really know what you have done but it’s obviously effective. I am smoke-free, happy about it and have no physical cravings. Thanks ever so much, James.”

Even when I spoke to James on the phone to arrange our first appointment he had such a calming voice and I already felt relaxed! The sessions were very helpful to me and I would definitely recommend him. I only ended them due to family commitments otherwise I would still be attending the sessions. Genuine gentleman who cares about his clients and always kept the lines of communication open.


James is an exceptional clinical hypnotherapist and life coach, a consummate professional and very highly recommended. Continued best wishes James.

James listens to you and at the same time makes you feel comfortable in talking about sensitive stuff. Recommend completely.


“I was so stressed about my driving test. I had failed four times and had begun to wonder if I would ever pass. I had three sessions with James and my confidence and ability shot through the roof. I passed on my very next test and the feeling was amazing. I would highly recommend booking James for Hypnotherapy.”


“Before I started Hypnotherapy with James, I suffered terribly with Anxiety. However, after a couple of sessions with James, it has dramatically improved!”


“I went to see James Taylor for help to stop biting my nails. The effectiveness has been amazing. It only took 1 session of therapy and the following day, and for every other day since, I haven’t found myself biting my nails once. I went for a second follow up session on my own accord for a separate matter, and that was also 100% effective. A++++++++ Highly recommended”

“He’s a gem, a solid guy and so lovely. Amazing. I was so impressed. James took the pieces I’d shared and wove such goodness and energy into me. I was blown away. I went home and wrote 900+ words in 2.5 hours. It was the first bit of work I had done.”


“I can now look at my life and be proud of what I have achieved.”


“This was the first time I had tried hypnotherapy. James was really knowledgeable and helped me a lot. I would encourage others to give it a try without dismissing it”


“James’s approach to my therapy was great. He was very easy going and had a soothing voice which made me feel comfortable when under hypnosis. Thanks James”


“James is a true professional and a wonderful man to sit and talk to. He’s very caring and understanding”


“Before I couldn’t swim in the sea or any water actually that wasn’t a swimming pool. The fish used to freak me out. James was brilliant, put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. He helped me rationalise my fear and learn how to cope when it may get a bit much. I have ventured into the water since and before I would have been constantly looking for fish without even dipping my toe in, this time I actually paddled and never gave the fish a thought. This years holiday will be my next test but I am sure it will be fine and if I waver then I have a coping strategy James taught me”


“Before I couldn’t rationalise my thoughts around food, anxiety and anger management. Now I understand my negative thoughts around food. I can deal with a lot more of my anxious behaviour” 


“Before I was stressed about my exams and couldn’t deal with the pressure I was being put under. Now I can sit my exams and other assessments without feeling horribly stressed. Would highly recommend”
