Rory James MacLaren-Jackson

About Rory M-J

I’m a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Elite Coach and specialist in personal development, human communication and behavioural change.

I’m passionate about empowering my clients to attain their definition of success by making positive changes in their mindset and behaviours.

I help both individuals and organisations to achieve this through processes such as training, coaching, and consultancy; or working at a deeper level using Advanced Hypnosis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Applied EFT, IEMT and Mindfulness. I’m also a qualified Management Consultant and vocational education Trainer, so have a broad and eclectic skill set.

A South Londoner of Irish-Scots heritage, my charismatic, straight-talking and ‘no-nonsense’ style has proved popular with clients from over 60 countries worldwide. I’m passionately dedicated to helping people change and empowering them to unlock the limitless potential of their minds. I achieve this by combining an open-minded, results-focused and sometimes unorthodox approach with a strong sense of humour. In terms of effectiveness, the client feedback that I receive speaks for itself.

I believe that ‘changing minds’ is as much an art as it is a ‘science’ and that it requires a very specific set of soft skills and level of mental agility. My approach also benefits from the fact that I am dyslexic and have the creative and problem-solving abilities that often accompany this condition.
