Welcome to James Greaves Hypnotherapy

I am a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist working in the Bristol and Bath area. I work with people suffering from a wide variety of mental, emotional and physical issues.  

During our sessions, we focus on the goals you want to achieve, rather than examining the problem(s) you are facing. In this way, beneficial changes are made quickly and effectively. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy works by focusing on your strengths and skills to help you look forward to the future, free from the issues holding you back.  

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a model of excellence, based upon the latest scientific research, developed to help people create real, positive change that lasts.

Stress & Anxiety
From generalised feelings of worry to an overwhelming sense of dread, anxiety can affect all of us from time to time. Hypnotherapy can help.


Characterised by low moods, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disrupted sleep or appetite, energy loss, and poor concentration.


Phobias are fears that are out of proportion to the actual danger the individual faces. They can cause a person to avoid the situation or object they fear.


Confidence & Self Esteem
Hypnotherapy can increase confidence, helping you face challenges, make tough decisions, and build more successful relationships.

I took my 14 year old daughter to see James as she had a phobia of going down escalators which was becoming a problem at airports, tubes and shopping with her friends. James has a very calm manner and put my daughter at ease. He spent 1/2 the session talking to my daughter, to understand the phobia and the other 1/2 hour taking her through a relaxation method. After only 2 sessions there was a big improvement (no panic attack) and after 4 sessions she’s cured of her phobia. I would definitely recommend James Greaves hypnotherapy.

James has a wonderfully calming deep hypnotic voice and my 7 year old daughter uses his CD to help her get the best night’s sleep that she can. No other relaxation cd is played now. Thank you James

In the 8 sessions I had with James, he put me at ease and made me feel very comfortable with his method. He was calming, patient and I felt like I had immediately benefitted from the sessions. In the coming months, I can really see the difference he has made in my daily life and beyond. I would highly recommend James and hypnotherapy in general for facing fears, dealing with seemingly insurmountable problems and as an all-round beneficial method of therapy.
