Felix is a chartered psychologist, clinical hypnotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner. He has demonstrated rapid-change therapy using clinical hypnosis with a 100% success rate with hyper-phobics on BBC3’s “The Panic Room”, as well using more conventional psychological approaches as on the TV show “Freaky Eaters”.
Felix believes in leading by example so in the course of his TV work he has variously walked over burning coals, jumped out of a plane, broken through a 2 inch wooden board with the palm of his hand, and held all manner of tarantulas, snakes and giant hissing cockroaches to illustrate how we can all learn to manage our anxiety.
Asides from these more dramatic displays of therapy for fears and phobias, Felix has been interviewed on radio and on dozens of articles on the most common psychological conditions affecting modern society: chronic anxiety, stress, depression, addictions, relationship conflicts and the feeling that something is missing is life. He remains passionate about promoting the benefits of modern integrative therapy in all these areas and has written a book on how the relationship between the conscious and unconscious mind determines our emotional and mental health…read more

Maggie is fighting the culture of fear that surrounds pregnancy and birth. The founder of Natal Hypnotherapy™, Maggie’s work has helped over 100,000 women around the world to have a better birth.
Maggie didn’t set out to be a birth expert – in fact, she’s an unlikely convert. She was a busy international sales executive who only reluctantly attended a hypnotherapy course to help her with her first birth. But she was blown away by the mind’s ability to control the body’s response to pain and 3 months later, she had a peaceful, manageable birth at home without so much as a paracetemol – to the surprise of her and her NHS midwife who said: “Maggie appeared to be ‘sleeping’ during most of her contractions, breathing slightly more deeply as they peaked. She used no pharmacological methods of pain relief and conducted her labour and delivery entirely under self-hypnosis. She appeared to experience no pain and very little discomfort.”
It was the turning point in her life. Inspired by her experiences, she trained to become a clinical hypnotherapist and left her job to pursue her new life goal: to teach other women the techniques which help them have a positive birth…read more
