About Richard


Curiosity has always driven me: educated in Physics, my first job was exploring the ground beneath our feet in oil and coal exploration; next I studied the space above our heads with atmospheric physics; and then the spaces we inhabit (in buildings), and now the space inside our heads.

Using Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming and drawing on my PhD dissertation on happiness, I get to the heart of what’s going on in your head quickly. A bit Sherlock Holmes like, I’m well-suited to getting to the root of the problem quickly to resolve it permanently.

I have over 15 years experience, having begun practising Hypnosis in 1997. I also teach and certify other practitioners at the Hertfordshire College of Hypnosis and NLP which I founded and direct. I am well-known for my deeply ethical and empathetic approach.

Training and Certification
I have trained with the London College of Clinical Hypnosis, Tad James (creator of Time Line Therapy®), Richard Bandler (co-creator of NLP), Bobby Bodenhamer (co-author, ‘User’s Manual for the Brain’), Rubin Battino MS (author, ‘Guided Imagery & other approaches to healing’).

What more am I doing?
I have developed the Physics of Happiness, a unique model of existence that challenges our assumptions about reality and the ‘problems’ we face. It became the topic of my recently completed PhD dissertation, and provides a powerful and ecological foundation for my approach to help people change their behaviour, achieve their goals, and heal the symptoms of disease.
