When I started out, there were only a handful of hypnotherapists practising in Scotland. Now it’s very much part and parcel of everyday life.

According to The Gazette, Scotland’s best known hypnotherapist Ronald B Harris is writing a book about his experience as a practitioner. Said to be one of Scotland’s pioneering figures in hypnotherapy Mr Harris is also thought to be the first to treat patients recommended by doctors working for the National Health Service. Such experiences have given Mr Harris a wealth of knowledge and understanding and as he approaches his 50th year as a hypnotherapist, Mr Harris has decided to commemorate the time by releasing a book detailing some of the interesting cases he has helped whilst ensuring identities are protected.
Mr Harris explained, ‘I’ll soon be celebrating 46 years as a hypnotherapist and in that time I have treated well over 100,000 people for a wide variety of problems. I’d put my success rate at around the 90 per cent mark. Hypnotherapy is an eternally fascinating job – no two cases are the same, and at times you have to do a bit of a detective to get to the root cause of a problem. It’s one of the reasons I always make up a personal CD for clients. I find it is much more effective than the generic, one size fits all, many hypnotherapists use these days.’
As a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy, one of the UK’s most established hypnotherapy directories, Mr Harris still runs a one day clinic every week in Scotland helping clients with a range of problems including gastric hypnoband. Talking about how hypnotherapy has changed over the years Mr Harris added, ‘When I started out, there were only a handful of hypnotherapists practising in Scotland. Now it’s very much part and parcel of everyday life. There is wide acceptance of it as a way to improve and take control of your life.’
The book is set for release later this year.
