The Liberated Mind Guildford Reviews
I only had 4 sessions with James but it was great. Very professional and insightful. I learned so much in such a short amount of time. Highly recommend.
Having benefitted from coaching for the last few years, there was still an area of growth that needed further exploration. The techniques used by James have opened up a whole new experience for me to be able to focus and transform myself which are imbedded into my day-to-day living.
I recommend James to work with you to understand your limitations and to empower and shape you to grow beyond belief.

I did not expect much to be honest due to my previous experiences with counseling and mentel health services which have not been effective. Then I met James Banfield he spilt my issuescup into several sections and every week he would help me overcome these problems and memories which have been holding me back for almost 30 years. With a few of his methods, James has helped me realise that I have a life and that nothing should get in my way and showed me how to let go of the past and live my life. Thank you James Banfield!.
James is a very professional and personable individual. I had several sessions and noticed small but consistent shifts in my thinking, which is what I was after. I would highly recommend James to anyone who needs help getting in a better headspace.
Incredible. Transformative and friendly, a wonderful therapist who I’d recommend again and again!
I knew that I needed to work on myself this year and who better to enlist to help me move forward than James. His sessions were relaxed and informal and I started to feel better almost immediately. I have finally reconnected with someone that I had lost for the longest time...me! Thank you James X
Can thoroughly recommend!
I have been seeing James for several months and it has helped me immensely. I had not tried hypnotherapy before, and it is not what I expected. It feels much more natural and relaxing than I anticipated.
James is a genuine, positive and supportive person who is keen to help solve your problems. I have learnt so much and like the science-based approach he takes of explaining how the mind works, before embarking on the hypnosis and coaching techniques he uses to help me.
The sessions have helped me tackle some unhelpful subconscious patterns of thought and behaviour (some of which I didn’t realise I had!) that had become overbearing/overwhelming leading to stress, anxiety and stagnation, which had become quite debilitating.
James has enabled me to think and see things in a new light. I have felt things shift and now feel lighter as some of the old beliefs and preconceptions have been challenged and now disregarded. I often feel refreshed, positive and much clearer after a session with James. I still have some work to do, but know that I am on the right path and have the confidence to face my issues more calmly and effectively.
To be honest, when I first was told I would be given someone to talk to, I assumed it would be the regular counselling experience. Telling someone what you’ve been through and how you feel about it whilst not really solving the issues. But by the time my first session was over I immediately felt so overwhelmingly liberated. I didn’t even have to tell James what I had experienced, he simply guided me through how to process these traumatic events. We worked through every negative emotion and he taught me how to process them in a way that they wouldn’t have a negative impact on me. My final session was earlier today and the only word I have is liberation. I feel so enlightened and free. I can’t wait to share James’s amazing knowledge to try and help others. I will never be able to express my gratitude for James.
Working through this process has been of great benefit to both myself and my wife, it really does liberate your mind. It’s helped me with stress, anxiety, and confidence, improving both my home life and at work. I recommend it very highly for basically everyone.
I have had a wonderful experience with James at The Liberated Mind. The patience with which he worked through a long-standing issue was incredible, and he really gives you his undivided attention. James has a wealth of knowledge to draw from and selects the strategy to use with precise care, dependent on your situation. I felt incredibly supported and I can honestly say that James was so invested in helping me through my situation that he would not stop until he was satisfied that I had fully worked through the issues. You don't feel like a client, James really makes you and your issues feel incredibly important, and I would recommend him to anyone with any obstacle they need to move out of the way - you will have an amazingly personal, caring and relaxed experience with an extremely knowledgeable therapist who will make you feel completely cared for at every step.

I’ve been working with James since mid September and within a short time I’ve noticed a huge difference. My colleagues and others have noticed too! I went in to work on public speaking, but didn’t realise that it was actually 22 years of life experiences that I hadn’t dealt with. We worked on an area each week and it all clicked into place. I’m looking forward to seeing the long term result!
I highly recommend James, he has truly helped me massively, I feel differently about myself after James’s guidance and professional help. Thank James your amazing.
My sessions with James at The Liberated Mind have been an incredible learning and healing experience. They exceeded my expectations of what hypnotherapy would involve and how quickly and simply it could help me deal with my
anxiety. I am forever grateful! SG
It was exactly what I had been looking for all of these years! Someone who can help guide me into finding the answers to my own questions and thoughts, and to be more self accepting of myself and my circumstances. I’ve gained more clarity into why I was feeling the way I was which in turn has helped me find my own solutions to the problems I face. The liberated mind really helped me with coming to terms with what has happened in my past and moving on from them. I strongly encourage anyone who has been through a tough time and\or has dealt with a traumatic experience to give the liberated mind a chance at helping you.
I was looking at the questionnaire James had sent me before starting the coaching to remember where I was before and my aims with the coaching. In this questionnaire I wrote that I was feeling stuck professionally, unemployed yet unable to apply for jobs. This made feel terribly unhappy and lost in life. I had a long depression and my own history of mental illness had made me fearful of life. I was full of doubt regarding myself, feeling unworthy, failing...
My goals with the therapy were to overcome my fear of applying for jobs and actually apply to them, to choose a good company where I could remain for a long period and, a deeper question, to help me identify what I truly wanted to do in life that felt fulfilling.
I had had CBT and some therapy before which were not effective. Many years ago, I had psychoanalysis and I loved it, yet unfortunately too expensive. Some time ago I had taken a course on NLP and it did help me to reach goals and empower the mind. I searched and found “The Liberated Mind”. I did see 5 stars on all the reviews, and I thought “this is weird”, but the reviews were genuine. So, I gave it a go.
James truly knew how to use the NLP techniques plus psychodynamic therapy (the unconscious relationship patterns that may have evolved from your childhood) and Person Centred (self-development in the ‘here and now’). From the beginning I understood that James’ purpose was not to keep me in therapy for years.
James released my pain and dealt with PTSD. He was incredibly dedicated to make me feel better. He surely went the extra mile. Very soon I was feeling happier and I certainly came out of the depression quickly. I was achieving my exercise and house management goals; I was having a wonderful relationship with my family and I was thinking positively.
Yet, two things were happening: I was not listening to the hypnosis tracks consistently and I unconsciously was searching for a psychoanalytic therapy. By session 10 James said to me that were not progressing as quickly as he expected. I started listening to the tracks every night and I now feel great!
I am applying for jobs consistently. Now I feel I am a goal achiever; I have a purpose, I am getting things done (so, do listen to the tracks), I think differently, I approach life in a different way. I am a different person.
I will keep on going every 3 weeks and very soon once a month (instead of every week) to keep up the good work and completely engrain the good habits in my unconscious. I feel liberated.
Thank you, James.

The sessions with James have been very helpful and I always get a sense of calmness and well being after each one. His approach is professional yet warm and he applies a range of techniques to delve deep in the subconscious and uncover and treat various issues. His interest in helping people and listening skills along with his knowledge and experience make his style unique and a pleasure to work with. Whatever your issues, I definitely recommend seeing James!
James' techniques helped me to get through a difficult time in my life when a few things hadn't gone my way and life had really got to me. In less than 6 or 7 sessions over the course of a few months I'm now much happier and will be more resilient to future bumps in the road. Highly recommended
