I’m overwhelmed and delighted to reveal that I’m through to the national finals of the prestigious Federation of Small Businesses Awards. I have been invited to attend a glittering award ceremony taking place at London’s Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel, on 3 May, to discover if I’ve won the national ‘Business Exporter of the Year’ title, for which I’m pitted against 11 other finalists from across the UK. Running my international hypnotherapy training business from my East Yorkshire home, I see this as all-important recognition for the clinical hypnotherapy profession. Clinical hypnotherapy is an incredibly powerful discipline which has the ability to literally change people’s lives for the better, but sadly it is often overlooked or dismissed as a form…

Hypnosis for business mindset

Don’t be Hull’d back!

4 October 2017

- I challenge 100 businesses to take my ‘positivity challenge’ for the sake of our city's 2017 legacy A positive mindset is not just vital for individual business success. Collective glass-half-full thinking will be the thing to tip the balance in terms of securing Hull a lasting legacy from our City of Culture 2017 status. This was the crux of my keynote speech at the final James Legal – The Business 2017 masterclass of this year.  I tour the globe, teaching other clinical hypnotherapists how to build successful businesses and flying the flag for my hometown, and I know from clinical experience the transformative effect thinking the right way can have on every aspect of a person’s life, including how successful…

Lorry driver lost almost half his body weight and now rides up mountains on his bike.

24 August 2016

For people who enjoy getting out in the open air, there is little that can beat the simplicity of a bike ride. Yet the sense of freedom enjoyed by cyclists is not something Pete Smith would have imagined before he took control of his weight, using only the power of his mind. Now, life couldn’t be more different for Pete. The 46 year old lorry driver from East Yorkshire shed 9 stones after success with the virtual gastric band, with clinical hypnotherapist Sheila Granger and dropped from 21st to 12st in just 10 months. Pete Smith looks back at his life before hypnotherapy and cannot believe he is talking about the same person. Four years later, you can find him…

‘I’ve never hypnotised anyone – they do it themselves’

19 August 2015

This week I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Catherine Lea, business editor of the Hull Daily Mail. We spoke about my work with schools to help students overcome exam anxiety and being tasked to help big corporates to reduce stress levels among employees. We even took a trip down memory lane, back to where it all started, when I read about a woman who could't stop hiccoughing and offered her free hypnotherapy. I'd only been qualified for a couple of weeks, so it was a bit of a risk, but I felt it was something I could help and it certainly paid off in the end. I took Catherine on my globe trotting journey and we touched on some of the 1000…

Sheila eyes prize for work with youngster’s minds

28 July 2015

A SELFLESS East Yorkshire-based clinical hypnotherapist has been nominated for the Mail's Pride of East Yorkshire Awards for her work helping students adopt a positive mindset and deal with exam-related anxiety. Sheila Granger, a professional lifestyle engineer and clinical hypnotherapist who works as far a field as Australia and the USA, launched the Educational Performance division of her business four years ago in response to growing concerns over the number of children on mental health service waiting lists. She recognised that by providing support mechanisms to those young people with lower levels of anxiety, it would prevent their problems from escalating into something with much more devastating consequences. Now, she has trained a team of more than one hundred Educational…

Endeavour School use hypnotist to help pupils with exams

18 June 2015

STUDENTS at a city school are being hypnotised to relieve exam stress. Clinical hypnotherapist Sheila Granger has been working with GCSE students at Endeavour High School on techniques to help them through the exam period. Teachers say the initiative is paying dividends, with students being better prepared than ever. The Beverley Road school closes this summer and headteacher Stewart Edgell is determined youngsters will go out on a high. He said: "We want the school to go out on a high this year, but ultimately we want our students to achieve the very best results that they can individually. "The work we have been doing with Sheila is to ensure students are in the best frame of mind when they…
