About Kristian Lees-Bell
My path to becoming a full-time hypnotherapist started after completing my studies in Psychology. I realised that helping people overcome problems and reach their potential was incredibly rewarding and I was drawn to the idea of using hypnosis because it enables people to overcome their problems painlessly, gently and often incredibly quickly.
Like a lot of people, I was quite sceptical about hypnosis in the beginning but my mind changed completely the day I realized I had been using it the whole time.
Have you ever ‘rehearsed’ an upcoming exam, sports match or presentation in your mind and felt that your success was almost guaranteed?
Well, it turns out that a great deal of top sports people do the same thing, again and again and it has been scientifically proven to help them win gold medals!
In my spare time I sing jazz which I believe assists in keeping my ‘hypnotic voice’ in good condition! I’m still fascinated by how effective hypnotherapy can be in enhancing my own performance on the stage and how helpful it was when I first began performing publicly almost five years ago.
I can still remember the first time I got up on stage; the thumping heart, dry mouth, shaky voice and the fear that I would forget every single word!
This became a bit of a pattern until I decided to see a fellow performer and hypnotherapist for a session of hypnotherapy. I was able to let go of that past negative experience so I could start enjoying the prospect of singing publicly again. After just 3 sessions my performances started feeling and looking much more relaxed and confident.
This is one of the main reasons I decide to keep on doing this kind of work – I know it works!
