How can Hypnotherapy Help Me?

If you are ready to take back control of your life and overcome trauma, addictions, phobias or even just want to start believing in yourself again, you have come to the right place.  I am a certified and accredited hypnotherapist based in Runaway Bay on the Gold Coast and I’m proud that I have already helped hundreds people overcome their problems over the years, and given them hope for the future. Now it’s your turn.

What you get when you come into a session with me is a unique recipe that allows me to not only relieve you of your challenges, but help you have power over them, and instil a strong sense of optimism, confidence, and hope for the future. I use a technique called ‘The Richards Process’ to take you back to the core reason behind your trauma, stress or anxiety – solve the core issue and you’ll soon be on the road to recovery. Hypnotherapy Gold Coast.

Hi, I’m Roland James – ‘Roly’ for short.

Roland James

I am a full time Professional Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist working out of my home in the beautiful and peaceful waterfront area of Runaway Bay on the Gold Coast, QLD.

Over the years I have done hypnotherapy I have received scores of letters from satisfied clients, all of them thanking me for the influence I had in overcoming their issues. A question I’m often asked is ‘to what to I attribute my success in hypnosis treatments?’

Now that’s a complex question. But I can narrow it down to a few things. I have had a lot of amazing experiences in my lifetime, and it’s this life experience that allows me to empathise and understand people on a much deeper level. Learn more about Roland.

I only use my formal training as the starting point in my sessions. Using that as a platform, I combine hypnosis with a number of different alternative therapies.  These include The Richards Process, Emotional Freedom Therapy (EFT), Neuro Linguistic Programming, Past Life Regression. My approach is that problems have a base in negative beliefs, and while the problems may vary, the foundations are the same.
