Background Newquay Hypnotherapy is led by Adam Pearson who's background is in management and youth development. Adam says, "I became interested in hypnotherapy when I was asked to try out a phobia-cure technique I had learned on a training course - and it worked. A colleague of mine was fed up of not flying and after a couple of hours working with me she booked a 'test' flight, which she passed with ... er ... flying colours. She ended up taking over from the ground crew and helping other passengers onto the plane! I decided if helping people to enjoy their lives is this easy, and this much fun, I have to do more."
"Further experiences have also demonstrated to me how overcoming fears and anxieties in one area of our lives can have wide-reaching effects, often far beyond the initial issue. It's exciting to know that everyone has within them vast resources for creating a happy and fulfilling life, and that these can be accessed at any time, quickly and easily. It may not always feel like it but amazing things can happen - and they don't need to wait."
