We all lose things. Sometimes we need help to find them again, especially if they are a bit more complicated than an umbrella or a pair of gloves.

I help clients find things they have lost by searching in their unconscious.
It’s a matter of tracking back to find the real root cause, and resolving it at source.
That releases the trauma and allows the client to move on, free to enjoy life to the full.

What sort of things have I helped people to find?

Libido, for instance. We found that squashed down and crushed in a past life, and very painful it was too.

Freedom to drive over bridges. That went back to the 1500s and a nasty fall off the castle battlements.

Freedom from a gambling addiction: that was what I call a spirit “passenger” making its influence felt.

There was even a newspaper headline recently saying that Bitcoin investors were turning to hypnosis to try and remember their blockchain codes …. well, if it works for that, it can work for you, too, whatever you’re trying to find!

If you know someone who would benefit from finding something, do give them my numbers:  01444 459 433 or 07597 020 512: I’m always happy to have a chat. Or point them to my website:  www.effective-hypnotherapy.co.uk .

Fear of Flying – is it keeping you grounded?

You’d really like to join your mates on a golfing trip to the Algarve. Your fear of flying holds you back.

You’d love to visit your first grandchild in Hong Kong. Your fear of flying holds you back.

You’d love to go for that promotion as European Sales Manager. Your fear of flying holds you back.

As the world gets smaller and travel (in theory at least!) gets easier, so fear of flying becomes more and more of an issue.
I’ve had clients coming to me with all of these scenarios and more – their partner is fed up with cruises; the family is threatening to leave them at home while they fly off on holiday; and their job is on the line if they can’t get to that board meeting in Spain or the States.

This particular phobia can take many forms – is it the take-off and landing? Or the idea of being so high, above the clouds? Is it the fact that you are strapped in? Confined to a small space? Not in control? It is complex, and often it may be more than one or all of these.

Sometimes, there is a logical reason in this lifetime for an extreme reluctance to fly. If, for instance, you were on a transatlantic flight as a child and the plane was caught in severe turbulence over the ocean, that would be enough to trigger anxiety. Or if there was once a technical problem on a flight, it had to turn back, an engine caught fire ….. then, for some people, that is enough to put them off for life. Or several lives …

In my many years of working with fears and phobias, I have found that the real root cause of fear of flying for many people lies not in this lifetime at all, but in a past life.  Recent cases have included a man who went back to a life as a fighter pilot in WWI, when the planes were little more than balsa wood and sticking plaster and the pilots had no parachutes. He was shot down on his third mission, aged just 19. A lady found a life as a man in India in the 1600s: after exploring a fascinating life, we found him buried under rubble during an earthquake in Calcutta. He was not found, and died there, trapped in that enclosed space.

Real Testimonials from Real Clients

Sometimes clients will write me a letter – or, more commonly nowadays, send me an email – to let me know what changes have come about in their lives as a result of their sessions with me. It is always a pleasure to receive such feedback. A handful are reproduced here, to give a flavour of the wide range of issues that have been resolved.
Names have been  removed to maintain client confidentiality. First, a selection of “one-liners” and then a few slightly longer explanations.
If you feel I might be able to help you, why not give me a call on 01444 459 433 or 07597 020 512. I work from Vinings Natural Health Centre in Haywards Heath, West Sussex, and I am always happy to have a chat about whatever issue may be holding you back in your life.

“I’m more present, more awake.”

“I left (the session) not knowing up or down …. There was lots of processing, and now I am lighter, happier and more joyful.”

“I haven’t felt this good in my life.       I’ve turned the corner.”

“The work you’ve done so far has been an enormous help, thank you very much!”

“It’s easier for me to accept who I am. I’m happy with who I am, and I’m easier to get on with.”


screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-20-04-44“I really enjoyed the session, and did indeed feel the benefit of it. With regards my back, it felt very much improved straight away as you know, with a feeling of freeness that I had not experienced for years. ….. Also re the food issue, that seems to be improving too. Initially there didn’t seem to be any difference in the way I felt about food, but maybe a week or so later, it was like a switch had been flicked in my head, and I just felt all of a sudden that I ‘didn’t need to be fat anymore’ ….. It would be lovely for this to be something that I can leave behind in the past. Or perhaps more usefully, something that can be consigned to the mental rubbish bin as it is something that is now no longer required in my life.”

“I’m calmer, more relaxed. I’m able to let go, I’m finding it easier to make decisions.
My back is feeling much better. I have had problems with my right wrist for years, it is now loosening up and becoming more flexible.”

“Food portion sizes are now smaller, I’m feeling fuller sooner. I’ve definitely got more energy, and I’m doing more. I’m sleeping well at night. I’ve moved on from guilt and anger.
“I’m good enough for myself.”

“I just wanted to drop you an email to let you know how successful my sessions were.
I don’t think I will ever enjoy flying but at least I am able to fly. It was so nice to visit my son (and new grandchild) and this was made possible because of your help.”

“It’s been several weeks since I last saw you and, as promised, I thought I’d let you know how things are with me.      
I have used the relaxation disc you gave me most days and I have gained great benefit from it.  
 I still suffer with pain in my back but I do have days when it is much less painful and I feel my health has benefited with relaxing more and listening to your words.
So, I am grateful for your help and send my best wishes, hoping all is well with you.”

“I just wanted to thank you and let you know how I was getting on after that amazing session with you last Wednesday.
I felt truly unburdened and free, as well as powerful and glorious. I  feel I’ve reached a point I’ve been straining towards for years – a point where I have full confidence in who I am and full faith in all that is. And unexpectedly an enormous amount of joy and fun came from it too!
Everyone around me noticed – my interactions with others has changed a lot – no more neediness towards others, just a desire to empower and love them.
So I was on a real high for several days. No more sleeping pills – I just don’t want or need them anymore – and I’m now slowly cutting back on the other medication too.”

green apple and tape measure
“I thought I’d send you a quick email to let you know how I’m doing after our 3 sessions recently.
I started the ( ) Weight Plan shortly after our sessions and I’ve lost 2 stone in 7 weeks!
It’s a very low calorie diet (600 per day everyday) but I have stuck to it religiously and not strayed once! People around me can’t believe I haven’t binged or had a ‘treat’ but I truly have not strayed and reaped the rewards!
I’ve got another 2 and half stone to lose but feel very positive and cannot believe how well this is going for me.
It’s all down to our sessions so I’d like to thank you very much.”

Fears and Phobias – sorted with Hypnotherapy

Screen shot 2015-06-24 at 3.55.41 PMThe vast majority of people have some kind of phobia and there is a very long list of them with their official very long names! Among the most common are, for instance, fear of flying; fear of crowds and / or public speaking; fear of enclosed spaces; fear of fire or water; fear of particular animals and so on.

For much of the time people with a phobia can somehow work around it but when it reaches a point when the phobia is having a negative impact on that person’s life, that is the time to do something about it!

In my many years of working with hypnotherapy and past life regression, I have to say that almost invariably a phobia can be traced back to a past life trauma. Not always of course – a fear of dogs may come from having been attacked or bitten by a dog in childhood – but I would still check to see if that chimes with a similar incident in a past life.

Past life work is my passion, and it still makes me smile when I work with a client and uncover one or more past lives that explain the root cause of the given phobia. The examples are endless, and all make perfect sense: let me share a few with you to give you an idea.

A woman who told me she was fine being by the sea but could not stand being by a lake or a river went back to a life as a street urchin in London. The young boy ran errands for an inn-keeper in exchange for board and lodging, often delivering packages on a strict, “ask no questions” basis. A few years later, the boy was doing similar work for one of the London gangs, and had done something to upset them. His punishment was to be tied hand and foot and thrown into the Thames: not a nice ending.

A woman came to see me with a complicated cocktail of emotional issues, including not feeling loved or wanted; an obsession with food; and wanting to have children but at the same time being very unsure about that whole thing. We found a very short, sad life where she was a young baby who was just one mouth too many to feed, and who had been thrown down a deep well and buried alive. Can you imagine the feelings and emotions of that tiny infant? The darkness, the fear, the sense of not being loved or wanted? The hunger, the weight of the earth and the suffocating as the poor little mite was buried. Yes, it was very traumatic, and we did a lot of healing – but it really did show where many of the issues came from. “Lighter and brighter” is a very typical response once that type of session has been processed.

A man whose issues included a sense of loss and depression, and who in this life is a great nature lover, found a life as a native American Indian at a time when the tribes were under threat of attack and invasion by soldiers. As an Elder of the Tribe, he was responsible for trying to find the best solution for the people, including negotiating with other tribes to join against the common enemy. There was a feeling of living in times of enormous change over which there was no control; of destruction of the environment by the invaders; and of not being able to protect his people. The death was relatively peaceful, surrounded by other Elders, but considerable wisdom came through from that lifetime with a broader understanding of his affinity with nature, and also put that sense of loss and depression to bed.

Very often people who are holding on to excess weight have starved to death in a previous life; those with a fear of heights have perhaps been pilots who were shot down in battle, or going further back soldiers who fell off castle battlements.

Does it all sound very depressing? I don’t mean it to. When you consider that we have all had many, many lives, most of which have been “ordinary” and some of which may have ended in trauma, it puts it all in context. By finding the trauma, releasing it at source and doing the relevant healing work, it allows the client to move forward with his or her life free of the the baggage that they have been carrying for far too long!

Past Life work: You couldn’t make it up!

I am passionate about past life work, and the enormous amount of insight and wisdom, healing and closure that can come from finding – and resolving –  the real root cause of an issue that has been nagging for months or years. From my own experience over many years, I know how powerful it can be, and even the most dubious of clients have been astonished by the richness of their journey. All their senses are engaged: not only do they hear and see what is going on, they taste, smell and touch what is around them, be it a dank dungeon or an exotic marketplace; a sinking ship or a dusty desert.

sunset with silhouette manPeople sometimes say to me, “Jude, these past lives, the clients just make them up,” and my reply goes something like this: Why would a successful businessman make up a life in which he is a 10-year old boy, back in the Middle Ages. His father is a tenant farmer, there has been a very bad harvest, so no work and no food. His father has gone away to try and find work and food, leaving the boy to look after his mother and a young baby. The mother becomes ill through hunger. The boy goes to the barn of the lord of the manor and steals a handful of potatoes to try and help his mother. he is caught, and hanged from a branch of the nearest tree. Aged ten.
Not very glamorous, is it? Doesn’t do much for the career prospects or the ego, does it? Not something you would boast about at the bar …

Or the woman who ran her own business who found a young girl way back in time in a tribe somewhere in middle Europe. She was dressed in a white frock and had a garland of flowers in her hair – and then she understood why: she was to be the victim of a barbaric – and incredibly painful – ritual in which her own mother took a leading role. Hardly Cleopatra’s handmaiden, or brave general leading his troops to victory.

Or the young man who found  a young lady who worked as a chambermaid in a stately country home in pre-war England. She became pregnant, and was thrown out – not good for the image, don’t you know. She went to London and ended up as a prostitute, even though she was five months pregnant. This young lady was beaten up in one of London’s seedy back streets, lost her baby and died from the subsequent infection. How would a nice young man – very much of the modern generation – know how much a prostitute charged before the war – and what the client got for that (in the common vernacular!)? Again, he is hardly going to boast about that to his mates, is he?

It is my belief that we have all been men and women, good and not-so-good. The life (or lives) that the client is led to in a session is the one that is most relevant to the issues they are working on in the here and now. And always, without fail, the experience is one they don’t forget.

Shifting Sand Syndrome – what on earth is going on?

There’s a lot going on “out there” around our beautiful planet, and wider afield. We are moving into a different part of the big wide beyond that has a higher vibration. The effects of this are already being felt in many ways, at many levels.

What has that got to do with you? Quite a lot, actually. Have you been feeling a bit odd recently? Not quite yourself? A bit more anxious or uncertain than you normally are? Or perhaps you just get the sense that things are changing all around you and you have no idea of what is going on …?

That is what I call “Shifting Sand Syndrome”. It’s as if you have stepped from a nice solid floor onto shifting sand. Nothing stays the same, everything is constantly, subtly, shifting right there under your feet so you don’t know where you are any more. You haven’t moved and yet nothing is the same …

The more sensitive, the more spiritual, you are, the more you are going to feel these effects, and they won’t always be pleasant. That’s part of the overall “crisis of change” which is an inevitable part of any process of change. Don’t be alarmed by it, don’t go thinking you have lost the plot: far from it. Merely understanding what it is will help.

If you would like to know more, or if you feel that it you need help to get through it, give me a call on 07597 020 512, or email me on:

Sojourn of the Soul workshop, College of Psychic Studies, Sunday 6th March

I shall be leading a workshop in the beautiful surroundings of the College of Psychic Studies in London on Sunday 6th March on “The Sojourn of the Soul – the importance of that time in between lives”.

In human terms, birth is the beginning and death is the end. For the soul there is no end, merely a passing from one state of being to another as it sheds the heavy overcoat of a physical body and returns to its true light state of pure energy.

During this workshop we will explore the soul’s sojourn, from when it passes from one human body until it joins another in its next reincarnation. You will have the opportunity of experiencing this “In-Between Life” for yourself in the group regression at the end of the workshop, reminding you of your life’s purpose in this incarnation.

Apart from experiencing that pure, unconditional love – which is beautifully emotional – you will come away with a much clearer understanding of who you are and why you are here.

The link below should take you to full details of the event: numbers are limited, so if you are interested, please don’t wait too long to book!

Sojourn of the Soul





Spirit “Passengers”

This is always a tricky topic to address. Some people refuse to discuss it at all, thinking it smacks of the work of the devil (whatever that is to them) or witchcraft. Others are (slightly) more open to the idea but don’t for one minute think it applies to them. And then there are those who understand the concept and accept that yes, that sudden change of behaviour or unexplained pain might just be caused by something as strange as a “spirit passenger”.

In some books these are referred to as “entities” or “spirit attachments”. I think these terms sound a bit threatening and alarming, so I am not surprised that people with little experience of things spiritual shy away from the very concept. I prefer to call them “passengers” because in most cases that is all they are.

What are they? Put simply, they are souls or spirits who have not passed over to the light as they should have done.

How does that happen? I like to explain it like this. Most people (of whatever age) know deep inside when they are nearing the end of their life. Just as the soul worked hard at the start of its physical incarnation to loosen the ties to the non-physical world, so now it will start to loosen the ties to the physical world and to open up the pathways to that non-physical realm. It is starting to pack its suitcase, ready for the journey home. Sometimes when people visit an elderly relative, they will say “he’s not all here, you know.” No, he’s not – because part of him has already gone home! So when the final breath comes, the soul simply picks up its suitcase and off it goes, peacefully and easily.

When the death is unexpected such as a car accident, for instance, or – sadly much more common nowadays – a shooting or a bombing – the soul has not packed its suitcase, it’s not ready to go. So it is lost, not knowing where to go. When this happens, the soul – being pure energy / vibration – will look around for someone whose energy field (or aura) matches its own vibration, or it will find someone whose energy field is so loving that it seems to have a Welcome sign on the door.

I met someone many years ago who had picked one up at the scene of a nasty traffic accdent: she and her mother had been passing on the other side of the motorway just after the accident and the lady had sent out loving thoughts to all those involved. Her warm, loving thought was enough to attract the spirit of a young man who had been killed there, it simply followed the beam back to a new home.

Very often, having found a new “home”, the spirit will simply curl up like a little dormouse and sleep peacefully. Sometimes, however, the spirit may makes its influence felt in a negative way. I have clients coming to me saying things like, “I don’t feel quite myself,” or “something’s come over me,” or “I want my old self back.”

The actual process is not complicated – the client is in a deep state of relaxation and I am working with the client’s unconscious and the spirits themselves, communicating with them and preparing them to “go home” to where they need to be for their continuing soul journey.

After such a session, the results can be remarkable. Clients have reported huge improvements in health or a complete change of diet. They say things like, “I feel like my old self,” or “I never realised how far off track I’d gone.” One client lost her craving for cakes and biscuits after such a session, and a young man lost his gambling addiction after just one session – both had been influenced by spirits.

The lady who picked up the spirit of the man killed in the traffic accident, for instance, found that she became aggressive and that all she wanted to eat was junk food. It was only two or three years later that she looked into the possibility of having a passenger, and when the spirit of the young motorcyclist was released and helped to the light, her behaviour and diet reverted almost instantly.

How many people have “passengers”? Hard to say. Some estimates say it could be around 90% of those wandering around the supermarket with you! So if you, or someone you know, has changed for no apparent reason, or if you feel that there’s just something not quite right – it could well be a passenger!

Past Life work is my passion. Over the years I have come to appreciate just how powerful this healing process can be, and I am constantly amazed at the wisdom, insights and understanding that are opened up for the client as a result of their journey.

This summary tells of a lady who wanted to experience a past life regression “out of interest”. While I do not normally encourage what I call “recreational regression”, I had a feeling that this particular client would benefit from the process – and so it was.

In regression, she went back to Egyptian times. She was a man of Indian origin who had moved to Egypt with his mother, and he had chosen to become a tax collector because that gave him power, status and money. As well as his robes of office, he held a short rod with “ribbons” to demonstrate his position.Screen shot 2015-10-29 at 11.01.09 AM

When we “parachuted in” on his life, he was getting old, and had come to the realisation that although he had the things he so craved when he was a young man – power, status and money – he had no wife, no family and no friends. When I asked if he had any messages for the person in the current incarnation, he said, “yes, always take care of your money, look after it well, don’t spend any more than you have to – but beware that it does not make you unhappy.”

I took the message, and prepared to take my leave, thanking him for his time and his communication. Just as I was leaving him, “he” – the person on the bed – started sobbing helplessly, loudly, from the depths of their soul. I asked what was the matter and, when the tears subsided, the real story emerged:

One of his regular tasks was to collect the rents from the stall-holders at the local market. Those who could not or would not pay would be beaten in public as punishment. His old mother had a stall at the market selling vegetables, and so he had to collect rent from her too. One day, his mother explained that she had not sold enough vegetables to pay the rent. He had beaten her, as he was required to do, but she was a frail old lady, and she had died. He was confused, upset, distraught. On the one hand, as a tax collector, he had merely been doing his job, and it was not his fault that she could not pay, she had to be punished. On the other hand, as a son, he had killed his own mother, and he deeply regretted that he let the arrogance of the tax collector over-rule the compassion of the son.  He desperately wanted to make amends, to say sorry, to have closure with his mother.

This involved another process, to find the spirit of his mother, which we did, and to bring them together. There were more tears, this time of joy, as the two were re-united and mother forgave son.

At the end of the session, when the lady client was back in present time, the first thing she said was, “that explains why my mother and I always argue about money!” She explained that the relationship with her mother had always been difficult, and money was invariably the trigger for rows, with the daughter (the client) accusing the mother of spending too much money on frivolous items. The client explained that she had often told her mother, “if you’re not careful, when you’re old, you won’t have any money to pay for the essential things in life, not even your rent!”

And a few weeks later she called me to say that, as if by magic, a cloud had lifted and her relationship with her mother was far more loving, not so tense, and money no longer seemed to be an issue.

Past Lives Workshop was just great!

It was a pleasure for me to spend the day with such a great bunch of people last Sunday, 13th September, for a workshop on Past Lives, Life between Lives and Soul Groups at Haywards Heath Town Hall. There were ten of us – a really nice number, I don’t work with more than 12 for these workshops. There were questions, answers – and then more questions … discussions, sharing of stories and opinions …. We meandered “off piste” into life on other planets, Karma .v. free will, holographic theory and the vibrational changes affecting the planet as a whole and each of us as individuals – nothing if not all-encompassing!

sunset with silhouette manAfter lunch there was a group regression and – apart from the one inevitable gentle snorer (there’s always one!) – everyone experienced a past life. Some were right there in the thick of it, smelling a dank prison cell or heather on the moors; feeling the texture of rough walls and soft fur; while others said they were “observers”, watching the story unfold in front of them. We found a colourful collection of personalities including a dashing young Scottish clan leader and a Maori warrior; a young Victorian lady and a man who fiddled the financial books and ended up on the streets as a result – who needs reality TV!

Seems everyone there enjoyed the day as much as I did, so my thanks to everyone who came along. And if you missed it, and would like to come along to a similar workshop in the future – let me know, I’ll put you on the list!
