About Evolve Minds Hypnosis Academy
If you’re reading this, then welcome, we can’t believe we’re here too. The ‘we’, that’s my wonderful, ever supportive wife Sue, Rosie our characterful Cavapoo and myself Mark. We would have brought our nearest and dearest with us too, but that just wasn’t possible.
The ‘here’ that’s the beautiful country of Portugal, on the Eastern Algarve, where we live and work – with clients who come to Evolve Minds Hypnosis Academy for help with a wide range of issues and teaching students through our Diploma in Hypnotherapy course, the wonderful and amazing art of hypnosis.
It’s a far cry from the ‘little me’ who left school with very few qualifications, though with the help of a ‘teacher’ I did leave clutching two bags of photographic darkroom equipment. After a few years moving job to job, I then spent the next twenty years or so, running my own successful professional photography business.
My journey with Hypnotherapy started over 15 years ago, when I realised I needed to reach out for help to deal with some stressful, but all too common, life changes. Seeing and feeling the transformation it helped create in me, after just a couple of sessions, in both my thinking and life outlook, my interest grew. I then decided to throw down a challenge and see if this ‘Alternative therapy’ could resolve my often debilitating ‘Hay Fever’ allergy, which I’d had since I was 11 years old. Two very enjoyable, relaxing sessions later and my life was transformed yet again. I wish I had found this many years earlier – photographing a Bride on her wedding day with my itching eyes and runny nose is not good for your image.
And so my future purpose became clearer. I had an incredible urge to let other people know about this wonderful therapy and help them deal with the challenges in their lives. And so, ‘back to school’ and this time it was far better than I remembered.
I’ve always strongly believed…
‘If one person can do something, anyone can do it’
After running a successful Hypnotherapy practice, I was invited to join the UK’s largest Hypnotherapy Training School, Innervisions, under the mentorship of Brian Glenn who has run courses in the UK for over 20 years. A great opportunity to teach other people how they too could become Hypnotherapists, helping others. ‘If you can’t beat em, join em’ – Sue too, was inspired to return to her studies gaining her Diploma in Hypnotherapy and we now work together running Evolve Minds Hypnosis Academy, providing first class courses modelled upon the experience and knowledge of both Brian and I.
“Learn how to change your life and the lives of others, one thought at a time…”
