Away from the riotous comedy of his stage shows, there is a more serious side to Paul´s work. In 2006, he qualified as a hypnotherapist. His professional qualifications include:
Hypnotherapy has long been recognised by the medical profession as beneficial. As early as 1892, a study carried out by the British Medical Association (BMA) concluded:
“The Committee, having completed such investigation of hypnotism as time permitted, have to report that they have satisfied themselves of the genuineness of the hypnotic state.
The Committee are of opinion that as a therapeutic agent hypnotism is frequently effective in relieving pain, procuring sleep, and alleviating many functional ailments [i.e., psycho-somatic complaints and anxiety disorders].”
Scarcely a decade has gone by since those findings without a major study into the validity and effectiveness of hypnotherapy being carried out. The overwhelmingly positive results of these investigations have elevated hypnotherapy from the realm of alternative medicine.
Many of Paul´s growing list of clients fall into two categories - those who want to stop smoking and those who have a fear or phobia they would like to conquer. This, however, is by no means the limit of what he can help with. He has had great success in helping clients with sleep disorders, depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Simply put, many psychological conditions can benefit from a course of hypnotherapy. Paul is at pains to point out, however, that you should always consult your own doctor to discuss your condition.
Paul can help with:
and many other psychological conditions.

"I had a terrible habit of biting my nails. My wife was always on my case about it. This had been going on for years and I knew I had to stop. I heard about Paul James through a friend and after one session which only took an hour, I was cured. I now have perfect finger nails and a happy wife. Thanks Paul". TJ Oslo, Norway
"After 3 one hour sessions I am so proud that I have gone without a cigarette for 6 months - Paul James is so professional that he has assured me that any time I get the urge to smoke again all I have to do is talk to him on the telephone and he will take away any thought of returning to smoking. Tusen takk Paul." HR, Svalbard
"Paul hypnotized me in a restaurant when there was a group of us on holiday in Bulgaria. I was hooked on chewing tobacco which was costing me a small fortune. I was amazed when I saw the video of me under hypnosis. I no longer crave the tobacco and enjoy spending the money saved on things that we need for our family. Thanks again Paul". Tom E, Norway
"I had lost count of how many diets I had tried. I was getting really depressed and my self confidence was very low. My husband had heard about Paul James. It has taken 4 sessions under hypnosis and I am glad to say I am now getting close to my ideal weight - I can still eat my favourite foods but because my confidence has returned I seem more content eating smaller portions and exercising on a regular basis. This has made a massive difference to my outlook on life. Top marks to you Paul". Angie, Liverpool
