Studies have shown that the success of hypnotherapy is often greatly enhanced when clients are able to draw on the support of a community of people dealing with the same issues.

The Beat Retreat also offers regular, weekly, group clinical hypnotherapy sessions for specific issues, at a fraction of the normal price of clinical hypnotherapy, and at a time to suit clients in Europe and the USA.

All group sessions take place at 7pm in Europe (6pm in the UK, 1pm in New York and 10am in Los Angeles.)  The weekly schedule for The Beat Retreat group hypnotherapy sessions is listed below. (Scroll down to view).

The first session for any client is FREE. After that, the cost is 20 Euros per session.  (International clients pay by Paypal). Except for the Monday night Deep Relaxation sessions which are always FREE.

Sessions are hosted at The Beat Retreat Clinic in Competa, Spain (in-clinic client numbers are limited to 8) and worldwide, simultaneously, via Zoom video conferencing.

The clinical hypnotherapy techniques employed in group sessions mean no personal information is revealed to the hypnotherapist, or other participants, at any time; although the hypnotherapist is available for one FREE 30-minute consultation per week for each participant for confidential discussion.  Also, clients who wish to are welcome to participate in group discussions before and/or after the hypnosis session. Group clinical hypnotherapy is suitable for anyone aged 8 years and above.

Hypnotherapy works best when hypnotic suggestions are repeated and compounded. Research studies have shown that four sessions,  spread over 21-30 days, is the minimum number required to ensure long-term successful change. Clients will also be given hypnotherapy recordings to listen to between sessions and taught self-hypnosis techniques.

(If you feel you need a little more hypnotherapy, for specific personal issues, you may choose individual clinical hypnotherapy sessions, either at The Beat Retreat Clinic in Competa, or online. The cost for individual sessions is 65 Euros per session, IVA (VAT) included. International clients pay by PayPal.  Contact me to schedule an appointment.)



The human body is a self-healing organism. Even doctors are taught this fact in medical school. However for that self-healing process to happen, the body needs to be in a state of deep relaxation. This FREE group clinical hypnotherapy session will show you how to attain that required deep state of mental and physical relaxation, through the use of breathing exercises, visualisation and suggestion, to help your body eliminate toxins, combat bacteria/viruses/rogue cells in the body, and restore itself to its natural balance.



Use clinical hypnotherapy to quit smoking for good! Where willpower has failed, clinical hypnotherapy can prevail. Join these group sessions, use the hypnotherapy recordings and self-hypnosis techniques provided between sessions, and follow the “habit reframing” homework, to put an end to your desire for cigarettes.  Join us at The Beat Retreat Clinic in Competa, or online from anywhere in the world. First session FREE.



Group clinical hypnotherapy techniques are effective in providing relief from all forms of pain, from trauma pain, to muscle and bone pain, especially back pain, to disease and illness pain, such as the pain associated with cancer and arthritis. Your mind can diminish or eliminate almost any pain in the body using visualisation and the power of belief. Even psychosomatic pain can be diminished or eliminated in group sessions (although sometimes it can require further personal investigation in an individual consultation.) Relief from acute and chronic pain can be immediate, or take a few sessions to reach full effect. Clients will be given recordings to use between sessions and taught self-hypnosis techniques. Clinical hypnotherapy can effectively replace opioids for effective pain relief with no side effects.  The recordings and self-hypnosis techniques can also be used to effectively numb any sensation during dental procedures and even during surgical operations.



Is there something you are so afraid of, or bothered by, that it is interfering with your daily life? Group clinical hypnotherapy can provide you with ways to overcome your fears and coping mechanisms to allow you to put that obstacle behind you. The techniques in group sessions are non-specific so that anybody who has a particular phobia can work on their own issue within a group setting.



The next course of The Beat Retreat clinical hypnotherapy ‘hypnobirthing’ sessions begins on Sunday July 1st, and is aimed at mothers-to-be who will already be 20 weeks pregnant by then. To real all about how clinical hypnotherapy can facilitate pain-free child birth click here. 



What if the video link goes down? How will I wake up? 

If the link goes down during the hypnosis session, your body will wake you naturally anyway. While in clinical hypnosis, you are in a deep state of relaxation, and able to enjoy all the benefits health-wise that brings, so losing the internet connection will not mean you lose any of the benefit of the session. The Beat Retreat specifically uses Zoom video conferencing, as it is an extremely stable method of face-to-face consultation. However, technological failures cannot be ruled out of course. For that reason, if you are concerned you will not wake up in time for another appointment, you can set the alarm on your telephone, or you can make sure someone else is home to wake you at an appointed time.

How do you make clinical hypnotherapy personal to me in a group session? 

Your subconscious mind makes the group clinical hypnotherapy session personal to you! Direct suggestions will be phrased to allow you to work on matters of most concern to you, within your own mind.  Likewise, visualisation suggestions will give your subconscious mind the option to imagine whatever would be useful to you, to help you to resolve your issues. Clinical hypnotherapy for problems like phobias are accomplished through specific hypnotherapy scripts with direction relevant to any fear.

What if I do not want everyone to know my business? 

There is no need to share any of your personal information with any members of the group or even the hypnotherapist. You will never be asked any personal questions in a group setting. You may participate as passively as you wish, simply listening to the clinical hypnotherapy session and following the hypnotherapist’s directions, or not as your subconscious wishes! The subconscious often has its own ideas as to what it will show you or where your mind will go.  You do not even need to turn on your camera for online sessions if you prefer not to. However, if you do wish to share anything with other members of the group, you may do so before or after the hypnosis session. If you wish to discuss any matters with the therapist in private, after the sessions, your session payment entitles you to one free 30-minute confidential consultation, to discuss anything which is troubling you, or which your subconscious has revealed to you.

What if I just want to attend the sessions and not do the ‘homework’? 

The effort you put into the time between hypnotherapy sessions will be directly reflected in the personal success you achieve from it. Guided hypnotherapy recordings, and self-hypnosis techniques, are a hugely valuable tool to use between weekly sessions. The more times in a week that you use them, the more you are compounding the benefits of hypnotherapy. Four sessions of group clinical hypnotherapy will be very effective at reframing your behaviour, or allowing you to better control your body’s responses; but 28 sessions of hypnosis will be exponentially better!! In addition, you may be asked to keep a ‘habit journal’ to help you identify your stressors and motivations. Again, this will be extremely useful to you in reframing your habit or issue. But at the end of the day clinical hypnotherapy is a personal matter, and The Beat Retreat is not a school! You may do what you believe is useful to you.

How do I know you are a qualified clinical hypnotherapy professional? 

You are welcome to verify my credentials, with the Association of Registered Clinical Hynotherapists (ARCH) in Canada, and the General Hypnotherapy Register in the UK. Should you have any reason to complain about my services, you may address your concerns directly to me, or to ARCH. As an overseas member of ARCH I would be subject to a disciplinary procedure for any complaint you might make. I hold insurance to practice clinical hypnotherapy worldwide, and you are welcome to inspect my policies. I have one specific to the USA and Canada, and another for the rest of the World.

How do I know you won’t hypnotise me to do something I don’t want to do? 

When you are in a state of deep relaxation during clinical hypnotherapy, you are fully aware of your surroundings, and aware of what you are being asked to imagine or think. You still have free will. Your subconscious mind would not let you do anything which went against your belief set. You would simply wake up. You can bring yourself out of hypnosis at any time, even if you just do not want to continue with the visualisation exercise. If you are so relaxed that you have drifted off to sleep, your subconscious mind is always awake and will ignore suggestions, or wake you, if it sees fit.
