Adam At Home
Once I had finished university, I had several psychological and physical health issues that my good friend, mentor, and first hypnotherapist helped me to overcome (you can read about the challenges I overcame in my books, online forums or in our Hub — I give better accounts there).
As a result of the seemingly miraculous changes that I encountered, I attended a number of trainings in a variety of psychological subjects and then went on to study hypnotherapy.
Some of My Loves
I live on the south coast of England, very close to the sea. I love running by it, surfing in it, playing with my children beside it, and enjoying our family beach hut next to it. My children have a lot of after school clubs, teams and activities so when I am not a taxi or support service, we watch local sports teams together, cycle together or I attempt to coax them to sit down and watch films together.
I love all things sci-fi and read a lot of fantasy novels and watch films from these genres. I also lift weights and compete in strength and conditioning events in my spare time.
Giggling and Laughter
I like to laugh. I am a big fan of live comedy and spent much of my youth glued to comedy TV shows. This influences my work as a trainer and as a hypnotherapist.
“Adam is one of the best, if not the best and most entertaining, speakers I have seen at an event. Beneath his lighthearted presentation, of which many a stand-up comic would be proud, Adam shows much depth and passion for research and understanding into the human condition.”
Tom Evans, Author “100 Years of Ermintrude”
“I saw Adam speak at the Bournemouth Ecademy and he is excellent, well worth the time invested. He delivers interesting material in a style that reminded me of a top level stand up comedian and it works well.”
James Coakes, The Team Building Company, Ringwood, Hants, UK
If you want to read about what research I am conducting, articles I am writing, books I am reading, and techniques I am honing, then do follow my social media accounts or read the blog articles on the homepage of this website. I contribute to it regularly — much within the fields of hypnosis, hypnotherapy and self-hypnosis, but also within fields of psychology and neuroscience. You might also like to come and join us in my hypnotherapist development hub where students past and present from my training college as well as other seasoned hypnosis professionals discuss, support, learn, develop and are supervised.
If however, you yearn to hear my voice as well as read my written word, you can listen to my popular ‘Hypnosis Weekly’ podcasts online and find lots of video footage of me on my YouTube channel. These can all be found by following links on the home page of this website.
You can also subscribe to my weekly ezine broadcast ‘Adam Up’ by entering your details into the boxes on the home page of this site. It includes techniques and approaches for personal development using self-hypnosis and hypnotherapy and features my memes and other bits and pieces.
Get In Touch
As of yet, I do not live in an ivory tower, so I welcome contact from everyone and anyone. Please feel comfortable emailing me from our helpdesk or the contact page on this website. I answer every email personally and always do all I can to be as helpful as possible in as timely a manner as possible — please do not get upset if I refer your technical queries or questions to the technical guys in the team though.
They can help you much more than I can on that front.
I Like to Think I Am A Hypnosis Geek…
Since starting out as a hypnotherapist in the late 1990s, I am still working as a hypnotherapist and run a busy hypnotherapist training college. I published the first ever meta-analysis of clinical applications of self-hypnosis to feature in a peer-reviewed academic journal, I own and run the UK Hypnosis Convention, I was a founding director of the UK Hypnotherapy Council and I was the first ever hypnotherapist to be on the expert panel for the online health clinics run by TalkHealth in collaboration with NHS Choices.
I have been an accredited and trained supervisor for other hypnotherapists and have professional association memberships dating back to 1996.
Throughout the years I have worked with many hundreds of individuals in my private hypnotherapy consulting rooms.
“Adam Eason is a great teacher and advocate of personal development, and his enthusiasm and knowledge of the subject oozes from his presentations. Having seen loads of speakers in the past, I must say Adam came across in a quite different and refreshing way.
Great speaker, great presentation … highly recommended.”
Jim Tuffin, CEO Biztime Ltd, Southampton
Today, I continue to conduct research at my local University for a PhD exploring self-hypnosis and cognitive performance and I am continually studying and working toward discovering and understanding more about the fields of hypnotherapy, hypnosis, neuroscience and cognitive performance.
I speak at lots of events and my hypnotherapy training college runs hypnotherapy diploma courses, self-hypnosis seminars, accredited Advanced hypotherapy courses and a range of other events around the UK, Europe and beyond. The college promotes critical thinking, does all it can to be informed by science and evidence base and seeks to challenge much of the myth and misconception surrounding the field of hypnosis and much of the “received wisdom” still taught on many hypnosis and hypnotherapy training courses.
“Adam gave one of the most inspiring and informative presentations to Weybridge Ecademy Club members demystifying hynosis and its use in business. We were very impressed with his knowledge and insight into the human condition. His delivery certainly gave the members food for thought as well as a better understanding of what hynosis is about and what it can do to help you personally and in business. If you are an aspiring stand up comedian, watch out for Adam who enjoys watching you amongst the audience.”
David Nunn, Weybridge Ecademy Club Leader
My Work In The Field Of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy
Aside from the academic papers, articles and eBooks I have authored, my first published book,‘The Secrets of Self-Hypnosis’ has since been superseded with my book ‘The Science of Self-Hypnosis – The Evidence-Based Way to Hypnotise Yourself’, and my book ‘Hypnosis for Running’ is available too. My other published books don’t do as well as those, but heck, you can’t have everything.
My work has featured in international, national and local media, and I have appeared on television on numerous occasions, including my brief appearance on a couple of episodes of BBC1′s 2006 prime time TV series, ‘Run For Glory’. I worked alongside Olympic gold medallists Steve Cramm and Sally Gunnell, helping the participants overcome psychological challenges.
In 2008, I featured alongside top TV psychologists on BBC1′s TV show, ‘The Smokehouse’, and helped the participants of the show overcome fears and get motivated to stopping smoking. It was a Ceebeebies show, aimed at 8 year olds, I featured for roughly 15 minutes – I knew I had hit the big time.
My work has featured in several national newspapers and many glossy magazines.
Adam’s Athletic Endeavours
I have run many marathons since my first back in 2000. I have run marathons back-to-back, in successive weeks and also ran all of the Bournemouth marathon festival events (5km, 10km, half-marathon and full marathon) one after the other one year. I also ran a number of Ultra Marathon distance races and events. Aspects of my own research have focused upon the use of self-hypnosis to advance cardio respiratory endurance in runners. I work with lots of runners professionally, love the running community and have found hypnotherapy and self-hypnosis to be invaluable when advancing running ability and performance.
Hypnosis For Running Book
My book ‘Hypnosis for Running‘ has received some humbling plaudits (given 5 stars by Running Fitness magazine and rave reviews from a world champion sportsman and a multi-world record holding ultra runner, amongst others) and has enabled me to combine my love of running with hypnosis and other facets of my work.
Strength and Conditioning
Today, I favour weightlifting and compete in strength and conditioning events, mainly locally with an amazing team from my gym. I love testing myself and seeing what I am capable of, and apply a lot of my work to my psychological approach with training and events. My social media feeds and stories are regularly filled with videos and pictures that I am convinced people are interested in seeing.
