    Changing my life one step at a time

    I highly recommend Paul at Norwest Wellbeing. We did an initial consult over the phone so he could assess whether the program would be a good fit for my issue. After one full session I could already feel a shift in my subconscious and the way I was viewing things. Changing my life one step at a time. Definitely give Paul a call.

    Pregnancy Hypnosis

    I had my appointment with my Obstetrician on Tuesday. While I still had a bit of anxiety, I was able to use the tactics to calm myself down. It really helped. My blood pressure had an improvement and partner said I looked so much calmer. I’m listening to the recording before I go to bed. I’m really positive that I will only get better, and I will have resources to help me while I’m in hospital having my baby. Thank you so much.


    Feel Better

    If you want to feel better it’s as simple as this, book an appointment and see Paul after just one session he fixed a problem that has resurfaced a number of times through out my life. I’m so glad I found him.

    Important investment in my future health

    My experience with Paul was exactly what I had hoped for. It was about getting my mind right to deal with my issues. Paul did that from the first session and then reinforced that in subsequent sessions. I have made great progress and although I still have a way to go, I am encouraged and motivated by the fact that I am already, within a few months, halfway to my objective. The hard part is done, taking the first steps, & I'm confident that the work Paul has done sets me up for continued success. I regard this as an important investment in my future health

    Transformed my life to positive

    I have gone through so much in my life. I had nowhere to turn to. Paul was the best thing for me and transformed my life to positive. He helped me through my problems. I recommend Paul and his team to everyone. It was the best thing I ever did. I'd like to take this opportunity and thank Paul. I can't thank you enough for everything you have done for me. You were the best thing in my life. Thank you

    I have struggled with my weight my whole life. Always doing this fad diet or anything suggested to lose weight quickly. I would lose then go back to old habits and put the weight back on and some. Finally at 48 I realised nothing was going to change until I changed my thoughts on food. Straight after the first session I could see a difference. Smaller portions, eating less times throughout the day and making healthier choices without any effort, it was just happening. I still have wine on weekends/when socialising and if the family is having hot chips I have them and enjoy without beating myself up for having a ‘forbidden’ food. I cannot recommend Paul from Norwest Wellbeing enough. He has given me the tools to make a change for life.

    Body Confidence

    I went to Paul about my eating disorder and over a few sessions I have been able to overcome my eating habit to the point where it does not cross my mind anymore and I have a boosted body confidence as well. I highly recommend Paul for any issue because he works hard to understand and help you tackle what ever you are dealing with.


    Lightbulb within my mind

    Having Paul walk me through various hypnotherapy techniques, in a very calm and down to earth manner allowed for fear blockers to be removed instantaneously. I walked out of the session feeling a huge sigh of relief and breakthrough. It was like the lighbulb within my mind was in tune to all of the limiting beliefs that I had allowed myself to carry throughout the years. It is a wise and valuable investment to make with your time and money. I highly recommend Paul for anyone looking to break free of their mental limitations!

    Highly Recommended

    I HIGHLY RECOMMENED Norwest Wellbeing!! I started seeing Paul a couple of months ago now and I am amazed at how much my quality of life has changed. I went into the initial session a little skeptical as to whether Hypnosis would work for me but after the very first session i felt like a new and better version of myself! I had seen a counsellor before, i had been on medication for a couple of years and none of that seemed to work. Paul made me feel very comfortable and i loved that he explained the process as we were going. I wish I had found Paul sooner!

    Ashleigh M

    A professional and caring experience

    I was ready to make a lasting change and my session with Paul really bought home what I knew I needed to do. A professional and caring experience and I highly recommend it.

    Self esteem & confidence

    I seen Paul for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I can not recommend him enough! I am feeling so much better within myself after just the first session. Can not wait to go back and continue to improve my self esteem & confidence.

    Highly recommend

    The subconscious mind is very powerful

    My last session with Paul Smith was over one month ago. I learnt from my sessions that the subconscious mind is very powerful and now, thanks to Paul I have the tools to be empowered to live my best life. From my 1st session Paul's persona was welcoming and calming, his professionalism was admirable. I would like to express my gratitude for the experience and would strongly recommend Paul to everyone that need/want to live their best life.

    Mandy D

    Thank you so much

    The best review I can give is just to say “thank you so much Paul Smith, you have really made a difference after only one week”, no-one needs to know the details just that this really works.

    Andrea R

    Delivering real results

    A great experience with a highly capable practitioner. Paul makes you feel at ease and helps you to understand the process at every stage. The session is delivering real results for me.

    Best decision I have ever made.

    I had a hypnotherapy session with Paul Smith yesterday and I honestly can not recommend it/him enough. Paul instantly made me feel comfortable. He explained the process extremely well and let me know it was okay 'not to get it' at first. I liked the fact that the first part of the session was spent talking through the process and my reasons for being there in a state of consciousness, as I was able to fully wrap my head around the process. The last part of the session (going into a trance) was also extremely powerful. Paul recorded the session so I am able to listen to it 2-3 times per week, whenever I feel like I need to. I would recommend this to anyone looking to fix an issue in their life. Best decision I have ever made.

    Adelaide H

    Psychotherapy session
