Depression, Anxiety, Stress and low mood


When you suffer from depression, anxiety or low mood, it feels like nothing can ever help, and nothing will ever change ... it makes you feel certain that you can never feel happy again. It drains the pleasure from things you used to enjoy, makes you see everything through grey-tinted glasses and eradicates hope and energy.

In short, depression, anxiety, and low mood is a parasite that feeds off your life.

But when you know how these feelings work and what they need to sustain them, then you start to gain power over them and hope is rekindled and reborn.

I have been trained in an approach to tackling depression and anxiety that focuses on getting you feeling better quickly. My approach uses a combination of life coaching and Clinical Hypnotherapy and is

  • Time-limited (you will not be coming to see me for months and months on end with no end in sight);

  • Present and future-oriented, finding solutions to immediate issues, rather than focussing on symptoms and what went wrong in the past;

  • Focussed on helping you to learn new skills. 


The first things we will do in our first session together are

  • Ensure you understand why you are feeling this way. It has a lot to do with the levels of stress you are currently experiencing, which affects sleep quality leading to physical and mental exhaustion; and

  • I will help you to quickly feel better by teaching you how to deeply relax. This is to prepare your brain to learn because as you’ve probably noticed, depression and anxiety make it almost impossible to pay attention and retain information.

When you leave after that first session, I would expect you to feel better than you have in a long time. But of course, depression and anxiety don’t shift overnight.

In the following sessions, we will work together to:

  • Help you balance your thinking so you are not plagued by negative thoughts, worry, and introspection;

  • Resolve any practical problems that are causing you stress

  • Work on any relationship difficulties you may be having

  • Look at how you are meeting your basic emotional needs, and, as you feel better, gradually introduce elements to your life that will protect you from becoming depressed or anxious again; and above all else ...

  • Get you feeling good about yourself and life in general.


Depression and anxiety can make you feel hopeless. But there is hope, and I think I can help.





Stop Smoking

Become a true non-smoker!

(Not just a smoker who is courageously resisting cigarettes)


Everyone knows someone who has quit smoking but still says they’d like one with a

drink, or after a meal. And what a terrible place that is to be. Having to deny yourself something

you want all the time.That’s why I use an approach that helps you become a true non-smoker, not just someone who is resisting smoking.The ‘stopped smoker’ courageously resists having a cigarette, while the non-smoker couldn’t think of anything worse than smoking. That’s if they give it a thought at all.


My approach to smoking cessation hypnotherapy changes the unconscious mind of a smoker to an effortless non-smoker.
The techniques I use address every single psychological trick that smoking addiction plays on you and frees you from its grip.
Smoking cessation hypnosis with me will gently move your mind from its current addicted state to complete freedom from cigarettes.


No longer will you be controlled by the need to smoke. No more planning your day so you can smoke, no more running outside at work or at parties, no more worrying whether you have enough cigarettes left. No more stressing about what smoking is doing to your health.


Contact me now and I’ll send you an eBook called ‘Get Ready to Quit’ which will help you prepare in a way that will make quitting smoker much easier than you could ever have imagined.


Does it work? What others have said ...


''Hi Steve - just wanted to send you a message to thank you for everything, my initial stop smoking hypnosis couldn’t have been more successful and I am currently 1 year, 1 month smoke free and enjoying all the health benefits that that brings''.

''1 hypno session with you broke a hardened smoker of 20 to 30 a day for 40 years, thank you Steve Scott. 10.15am on 12 February 2017 was the last time I ever lit a cigarette before my 10.30am appointment. Brilliant''.
