John brings a wealth of experience not just in hypnotherapy (in professional practice for 15 years), but also from senior management in a world-wide IT company. He was closely involved in implementing top-rated international quality systems to commercial developments. He brings this to bear in the high-quality excellence of this course. You’d expect to have the confidence to go out and help clients from all walks of life deal with problems and performance improvements, which is exactly what this course was designed for.  John believes in keeping the cost of getting this skill and experience to an affordable course fee level.  Course attendee numbers are kept low deliberately to give proper supervision and help.

You may have thought about doing a hypnotherapy course but for various reasons and excuses just put it off. You can do it, but you do have to do it! Maybe it’s a change of career or just to acquire a valuable skill. There is a limited intake of 6 students to this course for reasons of proper supervision both on the practical course and after when case studies are taken on.

You can book this course on the main website at Book Now!

Fear of heights hypnosis?

Fear of heights

Fear of heights? Without further ado – this photo sent in by a client of mine proves the hypnotherapy can be rapid and effective. He was about to go on a skiing holiday but had difficulty walking along a mountain ridge even without snow and had experienced difficulty in dealing with the impression he might give to his kids and possibly pass on this fear/ This could extend to travelling in a clear-sided lift or elevator if they were with him. On his skiing holiday recently in North America this is where he go to with his friends courtesy of a helicopter-

Email from my client


Thanks for your help. I can categorically say that it has a positive effect on my ability to function at height. I attach a picture of me on a ridge in ******* after having been dropped there by Helicopter.
The trip has proved to be more extreme than I imagined but I have been fine.
A million thank yous.


How we got there

Typically in the past this form of height phobia has taken anything from 1 to 3 sessions to get the person confident again to deal with being high up somewhere from the milder cases where the fear was of climbing up a steep hill gradient to more difficult situations like a fireman faced. In this case he took 2 sessions, the first of these being a straightforward suggestion therapy session with an MP3 recording to use at home and the second being a fairly practical session using principles and techniques of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with Hypnosis and some ‘homework’ to test out. His own homework above shows promise!

Woman hypnotises chicken

It was just a throwaway comment on my recent Dip.AH course in analytical hypnotherapy here in Perth, but I mentioned to one of the students that chickens can be hypnotised by holding their beak to the ground and drawing a chalk line away from the beak. Result is that the chicken focuses on the line which effectively hypnotises it.

Croad Langshan henThe lady in question said, “PS It seems Croad Langshan hens are indeed hypnotisable!
She stared in a dazed way in front of her for quite a few seconds, long enough to slowly release her head.”

The Croad Langshan is an ancient and rare breed originally from Northern China and in the UK since late 19th century.

Not quite part of the curriculum but a bit of a switch on the usual fear of clients becoming chickens as in stage shows.

So we can now add to dogs and cats being susceptible!

Smoking Costs Money and Health!


Intro by author Laura Chapman – “It is probably right for most experts to concentrate on the health benefits of quitting smoking. Stopping at any age can reduce the health risks associated with the habit from developing and can make people feel both healthier and happier in the long run. Yet one benefit is often overlooked and that one is financial. Consider how much you spend per week, per month or per year on tobacco and cigarettes, consider how much tax is heaped on top of that, and imagine how much could be saved. A 20 a day smoker could save £2,900 a year on average if they quit the habit. That’s definitely something to consider. ”

Find more specific hypnotherapy information about stopping smoking on Hypnoperth article – Stop Smoking, Start Living– a light/normal habit can usually be stopped with one session.

Stopped smoking but hooked on E-cigarettes?

They may not be as harmless as they are made out as this article by freelance author Laura Chapman explores. Hypnotherapy is a tried and tested way of smoking cessation but it can also apply to other forms of addiction:-

Electronic cigarettes: the new craze that keeps you hooked on nicotine.

Pets relax with hypnosis

  1410l0015Never thought I’d post something with a cute cat photo but here it is! One of my client who has been doing the hypnotic gastric band therapy has reported her cat has now developed a liking for my Easier Weight Loss CD. My client listens to this as she falls asleep and the cat now jumps on to the shelf where she keeps the CD player and when the track starts playing, settles down and goes to sleep. This is further to my earlier post about a client’s restless puppy calming down as she played the Relaxation and Confidence CD! As far as the cat owner knows her pet has not lost any weight yet, even if she has.0445l2085

Welcome to HypnoPerth blog


Welcome to the HypnoPerth blog, written john-moonie-google-plus by John Moonie. As you can see from the Hypnoperth site I offer hypnotherapy along with a number of CDs and MP3 downloads.

And as a leading provider of Hypnotherapy Training in Scotland a course in diploma (practitioner level) training,

What I aim to offer in the blog is a more personal insight into various things to do with hypnosis and the problems or opportunities it can help with. Some are better known than others – e.g. smoking cessation, weight loss and so on. Less well known is its effect on things that are sometimes suprising like pain control, migraines and insomnia.

I’m always open to suggestions as any good hypnotist should be and if you have something you think I can explain better, please leave a comment.
