Kidderminster, UKLawrence Pagett DHP Acc.Hyp MPHPA

Lawrence PagettLawrence Pagett has been fascinated by the intriguing art of hypnosis from the age of 8 years of age when he started to practice and experiment with many forms of mind/body disciplines.

Professionally Lawrence comes from an educational background with many years experience. He has helped, guided and instructed countless people from around the world.

For 14 years he worked at an international Business School where he taught English Language and Communication Skills and eventually became a coordinator of the institution. It was here that he honed his teaching and motivational skills and naturally began using therapeutic intervention techniques. (For most of his working life Lawrence has preferred to layer his skills being seen as a teacher/trainer and doing "therapy" covertly.)

In 2001 the Birmingham school closed down and so sometime later Lawrence had the opportunity to open his own private therapy practice.  He approached Hypnotic World in 2004 and took their most excellent Diploma in Hypnotherapy.


Lawrence is also employed at the University of Wolverhampton as a Research Consultant where he helps students in the area of study skills. Once again his counselling and therapy skills come in handy.

ScotlandJohn Sellars DipHyp, MHS, MCPS

John SellarsMy introduction to Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy came was whilst I was an Engineering undergraduate at Sheffield University in the 1970s. I was introduced to a leading Hypnotherapist of the day who worked in a clinical environment as a Hypno-Anaesthetist. He worked with patients who required deep surgery but had previously had an allergic reaction to a General Anaesthetic.

This caught my attention to such an extent that I read just about everything the University Library had to offer on this fascinating subject and practised on my younger brother which I would never recommend to anyone but was great fun at the time. Going on to gain my Engineering degrees and become a Chartered Engineer meant that I had parallel careers, which worked well.

Eventually, I decided to qualify in Hypnotherapy formally and gained my Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy. I have been practicing for over 10 years. I'm also a professional member of The Hypnotherapy Society.

In my practice, I'm usually happy to tackle most psychological problems using Hypnotherapy but I do tend to specialize in Single-Session Smoking Cessation, Eating Disorders and Depression. A current project is work on my book about treating Depression using Hypnotherapy. I use a variety of techniques and often bring in NLP and Parts Therapy where I feel this is appropriate.

Most of my work is in Glasgow and Edinburgh where I offer guidance to students and practicing Hypnotherapists.


SpainLouis Ravelle cert ABH

Louis Ravelle

International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association, UK Register of Advanced Hypnotherapists.

Louis Ravelle became interested in hypnosis over forty years ago. At that time he was operating a gymnasium in central London and already well known for his books and articles on health and physical culture.


It was his chance reading of a book by Mel Powers that started him on the hypnotic path. He did a lot more reading and started to use hypnosis on his gym pupils to improve their performance.  Lou, as he is known was probably one of the first to use hypnosis for increased sports performance, helping many of the top athletes who used his gym.

Later he concentrated on smoking cessation and weight loss (both allied to health and fitness)

For some years now Lou has lived in Spain, but finding himself bored with his early retirement, he started practicing hypnotherapy in Palma De Mallorca.  He says that his success rate with smokers, slimmers and phobics gives him great satisfaction. If you are interested in seeing a short movie of Lou doing hypnosis back in the fifties (when he was a lad) click on this link below (please turn up the sound as it is an old recording):


KosKaterina Banous

Katerina Banous Katerina Banous is from Greece and lives in the beautiful and sunny island of Kos. She have a degree in Psychology and is currently working on her Masters degree from Liverpool John Moores University on Special Educational Needs. Last year, through a friend who is a hypnotherapist, Katerina came across the wonderful therapeutic tool of hypnosis, which helped her personally a great deal. One step led to the other and it was just a matter of time before Katerina got in touch with us at Hypnotic World. She immediately started on the 8-module training programme, which she found very interesting and professionally written. Because of Katerina's interest in Psychology she was positively surprised to realize that it elegantly integrated many valuable psychological theories in an effective way that help the student gain a deeper understanding into human psychology. Having in mind the different factors that might be at work, both consciously and unconsciously, is a very good first step in order to effectively help somebody who is facing a problem. Of course, experience and inspired guidance are of equal importance - two things that never miss from Hypnotic World. Katerina's motto is "to the stars through difficulties". If you are from Greece and interested in learning more about the course on Hypnotic World please contact Katarina at katerinabanou@hotmail.com

What Students Are Saying
"Completing the hypnotherapy diploma course has been a game-changer for me"

"Completing the hypnotherapy diploma course has been a game-changer for me. I now have the knowledge and skills to help others overcome obstacles, break through limiting beliefs, and achieve their goals. And I didn’t allow my dyslexia to hold me back. Thank you for an enriching and empowering experience Faith."

"Instructors and staff were remarkably responsive, supportive, and patient with me."

"I found the entire process very exciting and deeply fascinating. It was incredibly helpful to be able to take each module at my own pace, as I was always comparing/contrasting several different hypnotherapy approaches from several different sources. Instructors and staff were remarkably responsive, supportive, and patient with me. I first graduated university with a degree in Psychology in 2008, and went on to obtain a Master's Degree in Social Work in 2015. I then became licensed in Clinical Social Work and have worked both publicly in various hospitals with patients experiencing profound mental/emotional illness, as well as maintaining a private practice of clinical psychotherapy. I have always maintained a fascination with the subconscious and the relative difficulty accessing it. Thus, I was led to hypnosis as a viable and safe means of doing so. Which, in turn, led me to Hypnotic World."

Nathan Nall (Completed January, 2024)

"The flexibility of distance learning, coupled with Faith Waude's invaluable virtual mentorship, guided me through exams and provided unwavering support."

"Thrilled to announce the completion of my hypnotherapy course in under three years, despite the challenges of a full-time job and the pandemic. The flexibility of distance learning, coupled with Faith Waude's invaluable virtual mentorship, guided me through exams and provided unwavering support. Balancing work and study seamlessly at my own pace was facilitated by user-friendly course materials, essential in earning my diploma in hypnotherapy. Beyond acquiring knowledge, this journey instilled resilience and determination. Despite never meeting, Faith's personalized support made the experience empowering. As I integrate these skills into my role as a holistic empowerment coach, I share my story to inspire others. Online learning, with dedication and the right support, is not only possible but entirely achievable!"
