Conventional Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy then my Fast Track Hypnosis .

Coming away from conventional Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy I developed my own techniques, ( introducing specialised equipment from America to speed up the whole process ).  I achieved this through cutting everything down to the fastest way possible, without losing  effectiveness, so my clients can get over their particular problems -FAST!.

Having developed these techniques I called it Fast Track Hypnosis and I have been using this system ever since.

Stop Smoking and Weight Control using Hypnosis in Belfast.

Continuing from that I developed my own Fast Track Stop Smoking and Weight Control sessions.  This was achieved by dispensing with all the unnecessary parts of a traditional session, e.g. I don't waste half of a session telling the person all about the health risks associated with smoking - everybody already knows that!

It's straight into the session, thereby saving the client time and money.

When I started doing these new techniques the media (TV, newspapers and radio) wanted to know if it really did work, so they started putting me to the test.

This was proved by me using the "Fast Track Stop Smoking in 30 minutes" twice on TV. One even against 2 other  stop smoking methods . My Fast Track hypnosis was the only one that was successful on that occasion. Another programme, I had to help a psychologist overcome her agoraphobia, again successfully using my Fast Track methods.

And recently I proved the Fast Track Hypnosis for Weight Control really does work!. click here

Fear OF Flying

Another occasion, a programme featured me helping a company director overcome the fear of flying, then the cameraman who was in the studio filming it came along to get over his flying phobia as well! .

This is his story

"Hi Alan, I can't thank you enough. I've just had my first holiday with a flight in 7 years. I can say that with all honesty I had some nervous times coming up to the holiday. With the help of the CD's and most of all self hypnosis these were soon settled. The Palma flight was delayed for 1 hour , which meant all the flying time would be in darkness. Even when I liked to fly I didn't like flying in the dark. As I boarded the plane at Belfast International Airport I felt good, but the really testing time for me was the closing of the aircraft doors. Any other time at this stage I would have been in a really bad way with fear. As the plane taxied towards the runway I could not believe how calm I felt, this in itself gave me a major boost.

As we took off I looked at C.... my wife, and gave her a big smile and told her I felt great. She also felt great, because usually by now I'd be gripping her hand with vice grip tightness. I had my mini disc with me which I had copied your CD's onto (just as a standby), but the cabin crew announced during the safety talk that no electronic equipment was permitted during take off. I still had my back up anyway, the self hypnosis. I used it a couple of times - not that I had problems but I just wanted to top up.

The flight lasted 2 hours 15 minutes, on arrival at Palma airport I felt fantastic and I got C..... to take this photo of me in my seat on the plane. As you can see by my smile I was so pleased with myself. It's been a long time since I felt like that getting off a plane. I had a great week and never once worried about the return flight.

I'm home now and cant wait to go on holiday again. The last flight I had was November 2001 from Belfast to Birmingham, we had gone there for a weekend break. I was really frightened even though the flight was a smooth one. I could not make myself board the plane for the flight home, and had to arrange a coach and boat for the return trip to Belfast. Booking the holiday to Majorca was a big step for me , and I could not have done it without your help. I was the target of a few friendly jokes from my work mates when they heard I had gone for Hypnotherapy, but I can say now that I had the last laugh. Alan once again thanks from both of us. C..........

Panic Attacks

yet another programme featured me helping a young boy of ten years of age, who was having panic attacks. He did not want to go to school because of these attacks, and tried to throw himself out of a car at 45 mph. Again his problem was resolved in a very short space of time.

Over the years there were many, many more tests about my unique methods of Hypnosis!

There is a great deal of satisfaction in my job, and people would often ask me if I ever use hypnosis on myself. Of course I do, and have done so throughout my long career!


I have often seen Hypnotherapists advertising Hypnosis as a completely new way of helping women when giving birth to their children. In fact my 3 children were all born under Hypnosis and my eldest is now 19 years of age! It was used on my wife for each one of them, no pain relief was needed. Then all of my equipment was taken to the hospital and used there, along with a crowd of doctors and nurses watching everything that I did.

Exam and Accelerated learning

It was also used time and again for my children's exams and accelerated learning, and when they were getting their inoculations. Our family doctor thought it was hilarious that the kids would be standing laughing as he gave them their injections. I had to show numerous medical students this very quick and simple technique.

Sports Motivation

The children were also into horse riding, and with the use of Hypnosis for Sports Motivation and also confidence, each one of them attained the status of Champion Riders of the Year!

Self Hypnosis

And me, I would use Self Hypnosis to simply chill out between sessions! If you want to do just that then simply click onto the link on the home page and listen to a complete relaxation session free of charge.

I have received thousands of letters reviews and emails from people over the years who I have helped in the past. You can read some of them here on my web site. Click Here
