Picture about the company

John Cooper 

BA(Hons), Dhp, MPNLP, GHR (reg.)
I moved to Stamford in 2019, with my partner and children, after twenty years in London.
As a clinical hypnotherapist, I specialise in helping people to let go of unnecessary fear and pain. I am a compassionate listener and bring a gentle, light touch to my work.
I write a regular column for the Peterborough Telegraph and run workshops around the country on wellbeing. I work from home in Stamford, Lincolnshire.
I am friendly, honest and experienced. I’ve helped hundreds of people, using modern hypnosis and advanced Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques, to make positive and powerful changes in their lives.
We are all different, so it's about finding out what works for you. I offer all clients looking for Hypnotherapy in Stamford a free face to face consultation to find out how best we can work together.
I specialise in dealing with the root cause of pain, deep emotional healing, not just treating the symptoms. I believe that if you pull up a weed by the roots, it doesn't grow back. 
Hypnosis is widely recognised by doctors to help with a range of mental and physical conditions. Hypnosis is a gentle, thorough way to re-wire your brain for good.

My Approach

I am an expert in removing phobias, trauma and patterns of anxiety, having helped hundreds of people to have freedom. Using my own powerful system, I combine a blend of modern therapeutic techniques such as EMDR, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Hypnotherapy.

How It Works

1st Phase

Let's start with organising the free face to face consultation. You can explain what you have been going through and I will listen. You can also ask any questions you may have about hypnotherapy.

2nd Phase

Attend the first treatment session where you will experience a hypnotic trance state. We will find out what has been causing your problems and begin to make changes so that you can feel better.

3rd Phase

Therapy continues as we break the patterns of fear and pain that you may have been experiencing. I will design a bespoke treatment plan and use advanced hypnosis techniques to give you the freedom you need.


"Thank you John!! This morning I woke up and thought of you!!! How much of inspiration you are! You always were and always will be in my heart, because without you I wouldn't have achieved what I have achieved already! You gave me strength, and motivated me when I was down! You pushed me to my limits and because of you I've learnt so much!! I have no words to say how thankful I am!!" 


"I wanted to get in touch to let you know I have passed! I have had no cigarettes since we met! Six months now! Every time I have been to the pub and even at a wedding last week, I didn’t fancy one at all! Remember I told you why I wanted to give up? Well guess what? We are expecting our first baby in June! I find hypnotherapy so unbelievably weird but brilliant that it can do that! Thank you very, very much!"

Sarah M.

"Lately I'm feeling like my emotions are more in control, I manage to see some  things more clearly and am more confident as a person.

 I can be with myself alone at home where I used to feel so anxious. I used to have no desire to go out, and it felt like just existence, working, eating and sleeping. It's nothing but extraordinary, I am now watching tv series (silly, I know), going out with friends and laughing again. That was gone for quite long time. I am still working things out but it is big progress for me. Thank you."

Lauren T.

"John has definitely made me overcome my fears and move forward in life. His support, and motivation made me a much better person. He taught me how to get more self confidence and self motivation and to never ever say “I CAN’T”. Always and forever will be thankful to this incredible person!"


"I thought I would drop you a line and give you a quick update on my life. 
I am alcohol/gambling free with a new and focused lease of life. I can’t thank you enough for your help, I am recommending you to any people in my life who may need that extra life realignment. I feel free for the first time in years.
I am still not sure what’s happened but the best way to describe it is that my life is much more streamlined and fluid."



Does hypnosis really work?

Yes, it certainly does. Don't let the silly things you see on tv fool you, hypnosis is a great tool for changing the beliefs and patterns that you are holding on to and wish you weren't. Don’t expect a miracle in one session, but you might just get one. It's impossible to predict how many sessions you need, but don't be fooled by people recommending you block book ten sessions in advance. I prefer to book in a few sessions at a time and measure our progress that way.

How much is a session?

A normal HYPNOTHERAPY session costs £70 and lasts about 45 minutes to an hour. 
My one stop, extra long STOP SMOKING program costs £170 including all extras- go to stop smoking for details.
My three session WEIGHT LOSS program (including optional HYPNOTIC GASTRIC BAND Therapy) is £230.
All sessions include a free MP3 self-hypnosis download. If you're on long term sick leave, retired, an NHS worker or unemployed, please mention it when you get in touch as I may be able to offer a reduced rate. I also offer a reduced rate for children (between 8-16 years).

What benefits can I expect from working with a hypnotherapist? 

Hypnosis is a blissful altered state that allows the therapist to make changes to the deep structures of the unconscious mind. Bypassing the critical faculty, the trance state allows the release of negative emotion and puts you in touch with your innate resources. It's just a state of great focus and openess, it's not really mystical, just very effective. I can teach you how to change your thinking and delete old patterns of pain.
“Tis not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”

Rainy Days and Mondays...(from 2018, first seen in the Peterborough Telegraph)

After a bad day it can be hard to get to sleep. Replaying stressful conversations over and over in your mind can leave you feeling worse than when they actually happened. The more you focus on things, the stronger they get...

Therapy for those inner voices..

We all have inner voices that fight for our attention. It’s not easy to know which one to listen to, particularly when their messages are all contradictory and confusing. One voice, however, tells the truth. Among all your inner voices, your true inner voice is the one which encourages you, gives you hope, and wants you to trust and be kind to yourself...

Beating Anxiety with Respect..

Thank heaven for music. It’s a great mood changer. I’ve just put on an album I love, quite loud, while doing the house work. I even did a silly dance and sang along.
Then someone called and after a few minutes they said how upbeat and happy I sounded. I wasn’t sad when I woke up but maybe a little low key ...
