General Hypnotherapy

"I have begun hypnotherapy sessions with Jamie to shift emotional blockages in my life, and I have already experienced profound positive changes!

"Jamie makes you feel totally at ease, safe and comfortable throughout the sessions. Also, knowing that each session is tailored uniquely to me and the issues I need to work on, makes that level of trust and comfort even higher.

"Jamie provides post-session resources and tools to enable me to continue the progress which is fantastic! I can't wait to continue working with Jamie and experiencing even more success through hypnotherapy."


"I was feeling so overwhelmed, lost and unmotivated. From the moment I met Jamie he made me feel so comfortable and just talking with him made a difference. His excitement and enthusiasm to help was monumental. His energy is contagious and uplifting. He explained everything with careand examples and ensured nothing was difficult or uncomfortable. I was blown away by our hypnotherapy sessions and always came away with a clearer mind, awareness and tools to move forward and put things into practice. Thank you for everything!"


"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your time and expertise. I've got the bounce on now haha. I feel freer, settled and content and just happy. Shifts were made today, thank you!"


"About a month ago my partner and I took the opportunity to try Hypnotherapy for the first time with Jamie Milne. It certainly wasn’t something that we had been seeking out or necessarily 'wanting' to try, but to be honest neither of us were in a good place. So why not try something we haven’t tried before... There was nothing to lose!

"I understand people see Jamie for all different reasons whether it be overeating or alcohol/cigarette habits. To be honest I really couldn’t see that I would have much success with hypnotherapy as I couldn’t even explain to him why I wanted his help.

"My initial chat with Jamie I felt so scattered, I couldn’t even identify a specific issue I wanted to focus on. All I could tell him was that from the moment I woke up and opened my eyes in the morning I felt a sense of dread that the day had started. A voice in my head told me not to get out of bed and I felt no sense of joy, or achievement in my day. I hadn’t exercised in about 2 months (even walking) and had zero motivation.

"If I had to describe the first hypnotherapy session in one word it would be 'powerful'. Don’t get me wrong, there was a lot of work involved from my end, I certainly did not feel like doing much immediately after the session! I felt relaxed (exhausted actually) but my head felt clear for the first time in ages and I felt really excited by this.

"I explained to a friend it felt like I had about 20 counselling sessions wrapped up into an hour. With this came the feeling of being lighter, like I had found some clarity and continued to think about things that were covered in the session and some advice that Jamie had given me after the hypnotherapy.

"To anyone thinking about trying it, it isn’t magic, it’s a process. One thing I can tell you though, is that I woke up the next morning and took myself for a run... for the first time in A LONG TIME.

"Jamie checks in with me regularly, his approach is very holistic and a big part of this involves follow up. He gives me 'practical' advice and what I like to call 'homework' which involves some personal tasks for me to do.

"I am waking up earlier, getting out of bed happy to start the day. I am now training three times a week whilst the gym is closed, I schedule everything on a whiteboard and feel confident I can get out of this lockdown period stronger than I went in. My problems most certainly aren’t resolved but I definitely feel I am on the right track and can attribute that to working closely with Jamie. My partner is making good progress also so I think doing it together was even better again.

"Jamie has always proved to be a fantastic mentor and role-model to others through the gym, but his passion for hypnotherapy and helping people in this area really shines! He really has a talent for cutting through the crap holding you back. If you are sceptical about hypnotherapy and if it is right for you, I would highly recommend even just seeking him out for a chat!"


"I have to say that my recent therapy achieved far more than my expectations. After only three sessions, I have managed to put some very negative past experiences behind me, and can already see huge positive changes in my outlook and ability to cope with anxiety and stressful situations. I was slightly sceptical of hypnotherapy prior to my sessions; however, since my sessions I am left in no doubt that this type of therapy is extremely effective. Jamie made me feel at ease and comfortable from the outset, and was extremely easy to speak to and confide in. Now that I know the positive effects of this treatment, I will be booking more sessions to iron out other insecurities and phobias."


"I saw Jamie for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I cannot recommend him enough! I am feeling so much better within myself after just the first session. Can not wait to go back and continue to improve my journey out of this dreary funk, and towards the life I use to enjoy."


Quitting smoking

"After years of on again and off again smoking, it was time to take control. I'd fallen back into the dirty habit of a daily smoker, not just the social smoker I was trying to convince myself I was. I could make all the excuses in the world to myself, but the reality was, I was a smoker. This was affecting everything from my health, wallet, family and friends.

"The timing of hypnosis with Jamie was spot on. I've never really taken to this form of treatment and always looked at it like a form of black magic. To say I was nervous was an understatement, but what did I have to lose?

"Jamie put all those fears at ease from the very start, he was a complete professional. He helped me tap into what I'd known all along and gave me the tools to take control. It doesn't end when you leave the office: the follow up and daily check-ins add to the professionalism and accountability.

"It's still early days  but there have been no cravings, no desire, and the thought of lighting up actually makes me ill. This includes when having a few sneaky drinks, and being around smokers.

"The feedback from Jamie has been phenomenal, but better yet is the support and words of thanks and encouragement from my family - priceless. I've taken control. I'm a non-smoker. Thank you, Jamie!"


"I went to Jamie for a hypnotherapy session to get me off cigarettes. We did an initial consultation where we talked about a few things to see where I was at and to improve my chances of quitting smoking. The actual hypnotherapy session was amazing, and I have not picked up a cigarette since I walked out of Jamie's office.

"Each individual has their own way, I guess, of processing feelings and thoughts, and for me, Jamie has helped me feel and think differently. I am a non-smoker! Simple as that! I also have on going support, which helps keep me in check. 100% positive so far.

"If you feel like now is the time, you're right! Highly recommend Jamie Milne Hypnotherapy."


"It’s been 10 months since my therapy session with Jamie and I’m happy to say I’m a non smoker, I only breathe in fresh air!"


"I honestly can’t thank you enough! It took me quite sometime to convince myself that hypnosis would work.. the rolling thoughts of 'how can someone hypnotise me and within hours I become a non smoker?', 'I’ve given up lots in the past, I know I can do it so why would I go through this..?'

Well... I now know why! Jamie didn’t make me feel like a dirty smoker. Instead, helped me see reason to quit. Helped me see what my future would/could look like being a non smoker. 1st December 2020 was my first session with Jamie and I walked away with absolutely no thoughts or cravings (on honest truth)!

Jamie committed to keeping in contact with me everyday to see how I was feeling. And I can honestly say as each day passes by I am feeling healthier and stronger and that my future looks so much more positive. To this day, I haven’t looked back nor do I intend on going back.

My only regret is not doing it sooner...! If you are looking at giving up, don’t hold off any longer. Do yourself a favour and book in with Jamie today :) "


Eating disorders

"Dear Jamie. I can not thank you enough for what you’ve done to my life. Beyond the shadow of a doubt, this is the best decision I have taken to come and meet you, in 2020. I am looking forward to my future and continuing to feel confident and calmer around stress management now that I know the deep rooted cause of my problem. I’ll keep your voice recordings as a treasure."

"During COVID I felt like I had hit rock bottom. Although I still trained every day, my motivation had disappeared and I felt like it had no purpose. As a seasoned athlete, this was tough and I felt like a shadow of my former self. It's not easy losing the one thing you think defines you. I had lost all confidence and self worth and didn't know what to do.

"I had heard great things about hypnosis and contacted Jamie. After two sessions I feel like my old self and I am excited to set new goals. My motivation has also come flooding back to do what I love again."


"Jamie I wanted to thank you once again for our sessions. Had a race Sunday in Christchurch. Prepared as normal but instead of standing on the water's edge waiting for the start gun stressing out I did my breathing saying to myself, 'swim strong'. Had a great swim, thanks, and I won my age group, SI std distance champion."


BFRB - Body focussed repetitive behaviour

Hypnotherapy is potent for Body Focused Repetitive Behaviours (BFRBs), such as:

  • hair pulling (trichotillomania)
  • skin picking (dermatillomania)
  • nail biting (onychophagia)
  • thumb sucking.

"Still sitting at around 95% scratch free - my skin is slowly healing."



"I've tried a bunch of remedies over the past few years. Even sleeping in another room so that my partner gets her sleep. The thing is I'm fit and healthy, not a massive drinker or overweight, and I'm a snorer. I wanted to be rid of snoring!

"I got talking tojamie about psychology, physiology and hypnotism, from our first chat we thought we'd put Jamie's hypnotherapy skills and my willingness to the test. Now when you give a guy like Jamie a challenge, you know he's looking for BIG results. He has an amazing history of controlling his mind to overcome what most people wouldn't even consider possible.

"So of course he accepted the challenge. 90 minutes later and a fascinating journey guided by Jamie through my head (oh the places you will go) I became a non snorer.

"Huge gratitude, and the follow-up has been fantastic as well!"
