"Brilliant - A Change of Life!"


James was absolutely brilliant. I had a hypnotherapy session to address my long held fear of flying, and did the online course too. The next time I flew was so much easier - my daughter said I was like a different person. James explained exactly what would happen through the process and completely understood what I needed. Would definitely recommend.

Mrs M Gant, Norfolk, UK

Working with James to overcome my anxiety issues was one of the best decisions I have ever made. He is a consummate professional who instantly put me at ease. The techniques I have learnt from James continue to help me get through difficult periods in my life and provide me with a priceless sense of self-confidence knowing that I now control the way I want to feel. I whole heartedly recommend James to anyone seeking guidance and support.

Mr Anton Carter, Norfolk, UK

I went to James after serious anxiety and nausea left me pretty much being unable to leave the house for two months. My GP had doubled my antidepressants, started me on a beta blockers for the physical symptoms and given me diazepam for my sleep, all of which was masking the real issue. I'd tried low level CBT provided by the wellbeing service at my university but found it was too gentle and would take months to see an improvement. My place at university and future career was in jeopardy as I was physically unable to attend lectures. I searched for local therapists as I was desperate for help. After looking through the website and watching and reading previous clients experiences, I contacted James to enquire about his services. He was easily contactable and quick to reply. He offered a free consultation to talk things over and see if I was suitable for clinical hypnosis or anything else he could recommend. Even after the consultation I left feeling reassured and just talking to him lifted a weight off my shoulders. His whole demeanour was friendly and welcoming and he makes a big point about you going away to think it over with absolutely no pressure to book in. I had my first session of clinical hypnosis the week after and within a day or two, something had changed, I was able to leave the house without being physically ill with anxiety. I managed to get back to university, still had some wobbles, which we worked on during subsequent sessions, but I was shocked at how effective it was. I ended up having a total of 6 sessions with James as it turns out the route of my issue was very complex and was caused by a range of traumatic life experiences. James is extremely experienced and knowledgeable on everything he does, his treatments are very person centred and tailored to you, as what has worked for one person may not work for another. He checks up on you between sessions which shows how much he cares about his clients. The environment is comfortable and safe with easy parking directly outside, his website is very transparent about session costs and you can easily book them online. Overall, James has literally changed my life and I cannot recommend him highly enough. I am so glad I sought his expertise as I dread to think where I'd be if I was left in the state I was in a few months ago. Thank you James!

Miss N O, Norfolk, UK

Finding James has been extraordinary - he has helped our family beyond measure. Our daughter was struggling with seizures during critical exams and these immediately reduced from over a hundred daily to a handful …and then we as parents also had well-being sessions to support us. Abi’s follow up sessions have enabled her to sit exams, return to school and face challenging she didn’t believe she was strong enough to due to crippling anxiety. James has even supported one session when Abi was having a complete panic and adjusted his techniques each time to provide personalised interventions. I truly don’t know how we would have got though without his support. We cannot recommend him highly enough.

Mrs Julie Wilson, Norfolk, UK

I went to see James and was so pleased with my sessions. James put me instantly at ease and made me feel safe and listened to. He is very skilled at listening and picking up subtle body language cues. He helped me enormously with my hypnotherapy sessions in breaking an unhealthy habit that was driving me mad. After 8 failed attempts myself to give up vaping, James sorted it in one session. I now no longer think about vaping or desire it, it's amazing. It is so refreshing to have quit without any cravings as such. I am looking forward to booking in again to see what else I can achieve in my life!

I hadn't tried (or really heard) or hypnotherapy before, but my friend had had a positive experience with it years ago. I looked at many local therapists, but liked the look of James - he seemed the most 'real' one out there. During our initial chat, James explained what it is all about and I told him a little about what I had been feeling. I approached the session with an open mind, but just really to give it a try. I don't know whether I was particularly ready to get rid of the old mind-set and negative thoughts - they had been building for a number of years - but the result for me was immediate and very noticeable. I felt like I had got my old self back - my mojo!

I would recommend to anybody that you give it a go.

Mrs B, Norfolk, UK

I thoroughly recommend James and his services.  He has a calm, gentle manner, yet instils a very high level of confidence in his knowledge, understanding and skills in treating anxiety.  My son felt very comfortable straight away with James, who carefully explained the procedures he would use and took time to understand the issues that needed to be addressed.


The procedure was enjoyable, relaxing and not at all stressful and had an impact on my son's behaviour straight away, making tasks and some every day activities achievable that he was not able to do before.  James also provided resources and strategies that can be used as self-help, and relied upon if and when necessary, so that my son can continue to make progress and avoid anxiety becoming a barrier again.


James' help is tailored to the specific needs of the client and is therefore realistic and has been very successful.

Mrs E, Norfolk, UK

"I rode yesterday for the first time since our session and I was on the safe cob...........and had a lovely time, went on quite a few grass tracks and even had a few strides of canter - this is a huge step forward, I was in the saddle for over 2 hrs and whilst I experienced a little anxiety, I was definitely better..............I was smiling when cantering yesterday ....."

Mrs S, Norfolk,UK

"5* Absolutely great therapy and James is brilliant.

Feel like I'm in control of my anxiety now"

Ms R S, Norfolk, UK

James is superb - if you have any doubts - just give him a call!

Mr L H, Norfolk, UK

" If I could give 10* I would...I can wholeheartedly confirm that James Gunning is as experienced as his website claims.  I had a period of 11 weeks where my anxiety was so great that I had remained in the house totally stressed, anxious and depressed.

James did a Skype session with me and within 48 hours I was functioning on all cylinders and back at work. I cannot thank him enough for his life changing intervention.​"

Caroline Martin, Gloucestershire, UK

"I went along to see James after my anxiety started getting out of control.  I wasn't sure what to expect and was a bit nervous but James soon put me at ease -  I left the first session feeling calm and positive.  Before each session we discussed what was going on, what I was struggling with and what i would like out of the session which was really useful. James was even able to help me with short term Chronic Pain relief.  After a few sessions, James produced an MP3 download for me to use at home. It is only a few minutes long but is an immense help to me.  Whenever I feel the anxiety building up I can take myself away for a few minutes, listen to the MP3 download and calm my mind down.

I would 100% recommend James to anyone who suffers from anxiety"

Mrs P W, Norfolk, UK

"I'm not suffering at all with my anxiety anymore and I've come off the medication I was on now too and I've been losing weight so a very very successful hypnotherapy client. You made the whole process very relaxed and calming with no pressure as I was in control and could stop at anytime. I would highly recommend you to anyone suffering the same, as you and your techniques you taught me have changed my life."

Ms S, Norfolk, UK

"Progress continues to be made with the help of James's MP3 s after attending some individual sessions to be able to identify the key areas to be worked on "

Mrs W, Norfolk, UK

"Having lived with a phobia for as long as I remember, I couldn't imagine life without the fear and anxiety that was beginning to control me! With just one session with James, I felt free, like a weight had been lifted. I'd never felt so clear and was amazed at the change within me! Not only do I feel I am finally in control of my phobia, I feel like I've been given a complete mental makeover! James is amazingly professional, with the ability to make you feel instantly at ease with his kind words and empathetic nature! He is genuinely passionate about the service he provides and helping people to change in a positive way. I can't recommend highly enough!"

Ms H, Norfolk,UK

"I have been using a CD from James for "Recovery after illness"I was unable to sleep due to the effects of post viral fatigue ( after a nasty bout of summer flu)This exacerbated the natural recovery process in that I doubted I would ever recover from the often overwhelming and debilitating exhaustion. After listening to the CD once, I slept for 10 hours the first night! this was such a huge relief and gave me enough confidence to realise I would beat this horrible feeling. Since then, I have been using the cd regularly to the extent I am almost fully recovered. I would recommend anyone to try hypnotherapy and trust yourself to James; he is empathic, genuine and skilled and I, for one, am very happy about that."

Mrs W, Lancashire, UK

"Having hypnotherapy changed my life instantly after just two sessions. Having had counselling and trying to deal with a fear myself to no avail, I turned to hypnotherapy.

It worked! - James was so sincere and professional - Thank you."

Mrs R, Norwich, Norfolk, UK

"Hypnosis helped me at a time in my life when I had been under a great deal of work related stress. I had lost a lot of confidence in myself, felt out of control and generally was not coping too well.   Initially, I was apprehensive at what would happen but James put me at ease and I immediately felt he was someone I could trust.


I feel having the hypnosis was a turning point in my recovery as immediately afterwards, I felt so much better, like a weight had been lifted off me and this continued afterwards. In time,I regained my confidence and took charge of my life -  I would recommend James to anyone as he is empathic, calm, professional and kind."

Mrs W, Bolton-Le-Sands, Lancashire, UK

"I have suffered for many years not being able to sleep. I have been on sleeping tablets for almost 2 years on and off. The misery of not being able to sleep is truly awful. Last Friday I had hypnotherapy, I haven't taken any tablets since and am pleased to report that at last I'm sleeping. I recommend any one that has the same problem or wants to loose weight, give up smoking or any other things they want to deal with to try it. I highly recommend James Gunning. Friendly and very professional."

Mrs T, Norfolk, UK

"My teenage son has been suffering with a complex form of anxiety that he has been battling to control for the last 18 months. After trying the usual recommended approaches but with no real improvement seen and only further impacting his confidence & ability to function normally day to day, we opted to try a holistic approach of hypnotherapy.

Our first meeting with James, my son couldn't physically get into the therapy room, he literally couldn't move for the fears he faced. That first session with James was conducted from the car. That was the start of our journey.... Today my son meets with James only when we feel he needs a 'top up'. Now he & James mostly chat and laugh - my son has returned! So on that basis alone cannot recommend James highly enough. The trust and confidence built, the tools and techniques shared and the professional support to us in terms of getting through each day remain as my son is now learning to control and manage his anxiety challenges for himself to the point you'd never know they exist."
Mrs S D, Dereham, UK

"Even after only one session, James has helped me so much. Not only did he immediately put me at my ease, but his professionalism and obvious passion for his work has already made me feel totally different about the issues I went to him to resolve. Now, instead of driving myself potty trying to stop bad behaviours, I'm completely focused on starting new, better behaviours, and I'm instantly the better for it.  ​I simply could not recommend James more highly. His work is truly exceptional, and the difference he has made to my life and future cannot be overstated."

Mr B, Norfolk, UK

Been a good week and a bit now and feeling more positive, outlook seems different, that thing I can't put my finger on but that is pretty much what you do!   I can't thank you enough for helping dig me out of the hole I was in.....You are a legend, its truly been better for me than any pill I've ever taken.  ​I don't mind if you use my name (On this testimonial), far as I am concerned seeing you has been one of the most positive healthy things I have done in years.

What Clients have said at sessions:



My latest weight loss client, Miss 'X' was thrilled to tell me:


"I now find smaller portions are enough, and now don't even eat all of that!"


What a cracking start to being a slimmer, healthier version of herself!

After one session Client 'C' said:


"I left over half my meal as I felt full for the first time in my life! AND I woke up this morning NOT craving sugar!!'
