What They Say


Some of my patients and colleagues have been kind enough to write about my work. I am very grateful for their generous words.


Just a quick email to thank you very much for my hypnotherapy,  already in the first week I have lost six pounds in weight I am so delighted am hoping to continue losing weight once again thanks for your skill.

I work as a psychotherapist and am therefore familiar with the mind body connection.  I went to John to shift 10lbs by his gastric band hypnotherapy technic - the result was amazing.   Three weeks later I am 10lbs lighter without even trying!  He provides a safe, empathic, professional and understanding atmosphere and I would recommend him unreservedly.  Plus, the money it has saved me in food more than covered the cost!

I was recommend to meet John when an operation I had to have was cancelled for the third time. I was in an extremely anxious state. My blood pressure was so high it was causing concern, I also suffer from an arrhythmia problem of my heart and was told that if I had palpitations on the day of the operation the Doctors would not be able to go ahead. I met with John several times for hypnosis, with his professional approach he immediately made me feel safe and at ease. My blood pressure started to fall and I started to feel calm about the operation. On the day of my operation my blood pressure was normal which amazed the Doctors. I will never be able to thank John enough as I am sure without his help I would not have got through.

I work as an Consultant Anaesthetist and have an interest in medical hypnotherapy. I am aware of several patients who have been successfully treated for anxiety and phobias. I have visited John personally and I was extremely impressed with his professionalism and empathy.

I have known John for many years and would highly recommend his professional services to any of my clients, where I feel he can be of help in overcoming difficulties. His sympathetic and considerate manner towards his patients is first class. I know many patients he has helped and they all have benefited from his expertise and skill.

Since tutoring John in his Hypnotherapy studies to Practitioner grade, I have been impressed by the level of care and professionalism John brings to his patients and by the excellent results he achieves.

I have just returned from a 6 week trip to New Zealand. I was travelling alone to visit my boyfriend, was missing him terribly but was far to scared to fly out to meet him and his family. The thought of two twelve hour flights alone was an impossible task for me. I had an initial consultation where we discussed my concerns and fears and relaxation techniques. Then I booked three sessions of hypnotherapy with John Greenaway, and felt relaxed and confident enough to book the ticket after my second session, after my third treatment I felt calm leading up to the trip, the night before and when I was at heathrow. I was amazed how relaxed i felt during take off and through all 5 flights during my trip. Amazing. I honestly didn't believe I could do it but had the most amazing time in New Zealand and am planning my next trip to meet my boyfriend midway around the world. I had the best experience and am so proud of myself and grateful for the hypnotherapy treatment I received. Thank you John. Emma Peters

I had been smoking for over 50 years and had tried many other ways of stopping for the last five years or so. It all came to a head when I needed an urgent operation on my foot. The specialist said he could not do the surgery unless I stopped smoking because the bones that needed fusing together would not mend if I used nicotine. As I wanted to walk properly again, I saw John Greenaway and had a session of hypnotherapy. After the treatment which was not at all stressful, I left feeling so relaxed and also determined in my mind that I no longer needed to smoke. That was on 19 July 2010. I have had the foot surgery and haven't smoked again. I could never have done this without the treatment I received. It was truly excellent in every way.

This man is amazing. I have never felt so relaxed and safe. My phobia and anxiety was helped in just a few sessions and I am now able to control my feelings myself with the techniques that John taught me. I cannot rate him enough for his customer service, professional approach and skill. I would have no hesitation to recommend his company and treatment.

My work provided me with this and I was more than impressed and would definitely do it again. Excellent and well impressed.
