i was wondering if you could do another version of the sleep hypnosis
The original helps but if im over stressed and over tired it doesnt work using the same one everytime
love your podcasts!!!
Love the podcast. Thank you!
I love you podcasts. So glad I’ve found your website! I live in Houston, TX, and just listening to your calm, comforting voice really helps me. So thank you so very much…
have listened to the podcasts and I think they are very effective. I wondered if you could do one for eating less?
James Reply:May 19th, 2015 at 9:26 am
Thank you Clair. At the moment I don’t have any for eating less however I recommend a good book – Paul McKenna’s emotional eating (I think that’s the title). It has a CD included but also uses techniques similar to EFT (emotional freedom technique) that I often recommend (google that too). Hope that helps, James.
I have just started listening to your podcasts and they have been a great help especially the sleep one, do you plan to do any more?
Keep up the great work.
James Reply:May 19th, 2015 at 9:27 am
At the moment I am on a sabatical, plans for the future are not made yet – open to encouragement though! Glad you are benefiting from the tracks.
Just listened to your podcasts
Very good and the right length for me
James Reply:May 19th, 2015 at 9:28 am
Thanks Phil – the length of the tracks was an important element so good to hear it’s helping.
I purchased your introductory offer yesterday and have not been able to open the download on my ipad or my smartphone
James Reply:May 19th, 2015 at 9:24 am
Sorry I missed this comment, I hope you have resolved it but if not –
You’ll need to download the file onto a computer – PC or Mac, and then copy the tracks to your mobile device using iTunes etc. ipads cannot download files themselves as they insist on using iTunes to manage their media.
Hope this helps
I just wanted to say thank you s very much for your sleep podcast. I am a survivor of domestic violence and hdnt had a proper full nightsleep in years. Withthe help from your amazing podcast I have had 7 night straight with full nights deep sleep.
I will never be able to thank you enough!!!
James Reply:May 19th, 2015 at 9:29 am
The’s great feedback thank you Phoebe, all the best to you. James
Can you make episode on speech difficulty. Sometimes chat goes slontanous a d other times it takes so much effort to make a conversation or talk smoothly.
James Reply:May 19th, 2015 at 9:34 am
Have you looked into EFT (emotional freedom technique)? I know it isn’t the same, but I once lost a few front teeth (long story, but Martial Arts are dangerous) and I was having dental work done for implant however I had to wear false teeth and a protective gum shield cemented into my mouth for a while and I had a terrible time talking. My confidence was low and when I did talk I couldnt really speak properly and was very self conscious – I found practising EFT really helpful in slowing myself down a little, being calm, thinking what I was going to say BEFORE starting to say it and, main thing of all, accepting that I was ok with it all. I appreciate it isnt the same thing but the process of slowing down, active listening and accepting yourself are key I think – Google EFT and see if it shows up anything that helps.
I’ve been interred in hypnosis for many years yours is very good and so handywell done
Thankyou James. Your podcasts have been very helpful to me. I suffer from insomnia when I am on my own. I left an abusive marriage nearly 2 years ago and when my children stay with their father, I find it difficult to…..well, I find life difficult in general these days- it takes a long time to re-establish yourself. I have lived in Australia for 25 years, but I grew up in the North of England so I find your voice comforting. I have only recently taken an interest in hypnosis, and have found several sessions have had a significant impact. Keep up the great work
James Reply:May 19th, 2015 at 9:36 am
Thanks Kirsty, not many people compliment my northern tone so that’s appreciated All the best, James.
I want to thank you for helping me through a terribly difficult time. I have had problems getting to sleep after the death of my husband. I found your podcast and now i cant get to sleep without it. It has made a world of difference and i thank you for that. Please keep up the great work, amanda
Hi James – do you do 1-2-1 sessions? With bespoke recordings? Please email me. I like your stuff and am based in the North of England. Stuart
So far it’s worked overtime! thanks for putting me to sleep!
I found your three-minute anxiety relieving hypnosis rather effective and soothing. I thank you sincerely and look forward to any other tracks that might help with self forgiveness and guilt as it relates to anxiety.
Thank you for sleep podcast
Hi I love your hypnosis sessions. Would love to hear more for sleep on podcast.
Loving your hypnotic sleep podcast thank you
I often point people in the direction of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique / or Tapping). Google it. I recommend the “Gold Standard” free training from Gary at emofree.com
I think it would suit this perfectly. It is all about self acceptance and I find it works fantastically and quickly. It is odd, feels stupid, looks stupid, but works.
Also there is a Hawaiian thing called Ho?oponopono that is worth looking into. But to be honest, I think the tapping / EFT will sort you out.
Lately I have been extremely stressed and have been having panic attacks twice a day. I’m 15, and all my dad talks about is work, work, work… I have IGCSE’s coming up and that is all he talks about. I’m tired, scared and depressed… What do I do?
James Reply:February 23rd, 2015 at 8:22 pm
Please speak to a teacher in your school. Any teacher you feel most comfortable talking to. They can help and the school can provide you support.
Also you can get help from childline on 0800 1111 or maybe you’d prefer to have an online chat with them here (copy and paste this link as it isnt working directly from this comment) – http://www.childline.org.uk/Talk/Chat/Pages/OnlineChat.aspx
You can talk to them about anything that is worrying you.
Hi Kevin, I have reset and sent a new link to your email. Please check it doesnt get caught in a spam filter. Any problems let me know, thanks James.
Hi Maria, no problem, I’ve sent you a link to the 3MinuteHypnosis introductory tracks,
I purchased the new longer sleep hypnosis audio but I think I didn’t download it in the requested time frame. I did receive a record of my payment, but I haven’t been able to listen. I think your 3 minute tapes are remarkable, informative and helpful. I hope we can work this out. I find th short version quite helpful, so I truly look forward to your newer version. My introduction to hypnosis was through maggie staiger here in New York as part of a mind fullness workshop for people with multiple sclerosis.
Her tapes are quite remarkable as yours are also. I thought you might like to listen to hers.
I appreciate how interesting your comments are
James Reply:February 15th, 2015 at 9:06 am
The link for download is limited to 5 downloads, but not time limited. I’ve created a new link for you to try. Let me know if problem continues.
The links are now at the top of this page.
Can you send me a link to pay for the sleep or a bundle, thanks
Hi enjoy your 3min sessions but have parted from my partner and its killing me as can’t stop thinking about her to enable me to move on. Please do you have any suggestions. Thanks
ok, so I came you because my masseuse says I cannot relax, my mind or my muscles, so I am a busy executive with lots of pressures and family pressures. I am intense and always want to bless people all around me, I feel the pressure to be kind, responsible and caring. One thing I am trying to do in massage is to shut out any responsibility I feel to other people. I also have to shut out my three children, and anxiety, guilt, etc. Client work. I worry of coarse like everyone else the future, making an impact on my children.
I also have an underlying anxiety about my son leaving for college. So you can see how hard my masseuse is working on me, and how happy I am to find your podcast. Keep inspiring your listeners.
I think your podcast is amazing and hope to stay tuned into learn more about the products you offer.
Thanks for helping
Am 84,and have had agoraphobia over 60 years. My greatest fear was being alone. Am alone, now and am terrified of leaving the house. I have to visit my 90 yr old sister in a nursing home, and can’t go there alone. Even with people, I am terrified the whole time. Please subscribe me to your newsletters and free relaxation tapes. I have to relax! I want to relax and enjoy whatever time I have left. Please, please help me. God Bless you. Eileen

Hi Eileen, please check your email inbox, I hope you find the hypnosis tracks helpful. All the best, James.
Hi all, I’ve not updated all the links yet but if you would like to get the new enhanced, edited, cleaned up Hypnotic Sleep track (previously only available as part of a podcast) you can go here:
You’ll be helping support the site and provision of free content available here and on iTunes.
Get James i love you podcast, but i have a one thing. I really can’t find out what music you are useing. Can you pls help me with that. (Sorry If my english is bad)
Hi. I love your Hypnotic Sleep podcast, but how do I purchase it without all the talk and intro at the beginning? Thank you.
James Reply:October 28th, 2014 at 11:18 am
I’ve had this requested a few times, it’s a great idea, I’ll put it up on the site shortly.
James Reply:November 10th, 2014 at 3:37 pm
Nearly there! Keep en eye out, I’ll be emailing about this in the next day or two. I’ve taken the opportunity to completely remaster the sleep hypnosis track, removing all the talk and letting you stay down there in hypnosis rather than bringing you back up toward the end. You’ll get deeper and deeper then stay there until morning. It’s never sounded better, excited to get it out there for you all.
Maggie Reply:November 13th, 2014 at 4:00 am
Can you please let me know where to get ur new remastered sleep hypnosis? I have your old one n think it’s great. I’m very excited about your new one. I should be on ur email list but haven’t recieved an email yet.
James Reply:November 13th, 2014 at 8:36 am
The new track is available here: http://www.3minutehypnosis.com/specialoffer-sleep-hypnosis/
I’ll update the main page etc but for now, it’s hot off the press.
No sorry Kelli I don’t have any downloads/podcasts specifically on this right now, I’ll add it to my list of requests. One thing I would highly recommend you look into is “EFT” or “emotional freedom tapping/technique”. Give that a google and try it out – there are lots of FREE videos (Youtube) and a Gold Standard free course available, so keep hold of your money and make use of the wealth of free information on EFT before looking at some of the paid for information out there. Hope this helps, James.
Awesome using your program to help to control the symptoms from PTSD can’t relax on my own but using your program’s gets me to a calm and quiet place that I need to be able to get any success for my recovery
James Reply:October 22nd, 2014 at 11:14 am
Fantastic Darren thanks for sharing. Good luck. James.
I’ve been using your podcast from about one month now, mainly the “instant sleep” and “beautiful day” ones, and I have to say that I am greatly thankfull for them. They do help a lot!! I would like to ask you if you would consider making one concerning the problem of procrastination, since I believe it is one of the issues that many people would like to overcome nowadays (including myself, of course).
Thank you so much for the good work you share with us and all the best to you!
James Reply:October 22nd, 2014 at 11:15 am
Hi Mari, if you subscribe to the newsletter you’ll see some tracks that may benefit you. Any questions please let me know. Thanks for your feedback it is appreciated. James
I really enjoy all of your podcasts. I recently quiit smoking and having trouble sleeping till I found your pod cast ! Please keep the good work !
James Reply:October 22nd, 2014 at 11:16 am
Glad to be of assistance and well done on kicking that habit Aaron.
The sleep podcast works really well except I am now so relaxed that I am waking up wet . I am so relaxed and sleeping so well that I am wetting myself and sleeping right thru it! Any solutions to that!
James Reply:October 22nd, 2014 at 11:17 am
erm.. Sorry about that. I think the best approach is to visit the bathroom before settling down to listen to the track. Glad it’s helping (kind of?)
Very interested in working with you but can’t find any information about you. The completelifecoach.com website is being directed to this one. Please let us know where we can find more about you and how to work with you. Thanks.

Hi Angela, best contact for me is James “at” 3Minutehypnosis.com
I too have found the hypnotic sleep really helpful. Thanks so much.
Like Miranda, I’m also battling depression and really struggling to motivate myself and get out of the ‘fog’. Are you still providing your coaching services? I’d be keen to chat about what you mightbe able to offer.
James Reply:October 22nd, 2014 at 11:19 am
Hi Sam, pop me a note at James “at” 3MinuteHypnosis.com and we can discuss.
Also, check out EFT on Google (“emotional freedom technique/tapping”). Look for the FREE stuff out there, there is lots of it. May be of assistance.
These really help with relaxing at night and also with my sleep thanks
James Reply:October 22nd, 2014 at 11:20 am
Perfect, thanks Grainne.
Excellent ! Just what I need after a hard day at work.
I’ve been dealing with clinical depression for basically my whole life but it’s gotten a lot worse recently. This makes it very hard for me to sleep and your hypnotic sleep recording has helped me fall asleep for the past few months but now that I’ve heard it so many times I’ve been finding it difficult to pay attention to it and now I’m back to my depressive overthinking. I’m not sure exactly what to do about it but thanks for helping me get through the past few months. Also, my depression is making it hard for me to do anything at all. Can hypnosis help me get back some motivation? It’s harder every day.
James Reply:October 22nd, 2014 at 11:21 am
I’ve replied to a few comments with my recommendation to look into EFT (“emotional freedom technique/tapping”). Google it and look at the wealth of free information out there (also lots on Youtube). You can also contact me direct – James “at” 3MinuteHypnosis.com

That’s great news Chris, all the best to you.
I just wondered how you are as I have not seen any recent posts from you.
Are you ok and still an active life coac?. All the best. Thanks for all your help.
James Reply:November 19th, 2013 at 10:35 pm
Hi Alison many thanks for asking after me – things have been tricky lately with illness in my family but certainly starting to improve now so I’m really optimistic that I’m going to get back to producing more hypnosis tracks.
First of all thank you very much. I have psychological problem since I was 5 years old. It’s called Triktillomani, I pick out my eaylashes and eyebrows. In 2008 I was studying for the university exam and that year I picked out all of my eyebrows and lashes until nothing was left. Before that year I only had little gaps but never bad that anyone would notice. Since 2008 I have to draw my eyebrows. It is very frustrating and I dont have self confidence because I think this illness ruins my beauty. I have tried medical treatment, hypnosis but they did not work. 3 months ago while I was surfing the internet I discovered this 3 minute hypnosis podcast.I tried the self confidence session. Although I felt really good afterwards I wasn’t hopeful it would have work. But now all of my eyelashes are in place and I started using mascara. My eyebrows are growing as well. I am amazed. I am really thankful. I have regain my confidence and feel like I can do anything. 3 minutes of your voice just changed my life.
Thank you very much.
ps: It would be really nice if you could do a 3 minute session for this particular problem.
James Reply:November 19th, 2013 at 10:39 pm
That’s absolutely fabulous news I’m so happy for you. I’ve never heard of Triktillomani before, I’ll certainly research it further. If I can be of any further help please dont hesitate to contact me.
I recently came across your podcast about public speaking and listened to it for a few evenings before a big presentation. I loved the positive spin you put on how to view public speaking. I found it very helpful and can’t wait to try more.
James Reply:November 19th, 2013 at 10:41 pm
Thanks Ambre, I think the advice within the hypnosis track is probably the best advice I’ve ever received on public speaking – it certainly helped me.
Hi James, I think I speak for all your fans when I say how pleased I am to hear you are “coming back”. I check ITunes every week hoping that I will see a new podcast from you, so you can imagine my delight to get an email from you. I’m sorry life has been less that kind to you but hope it will rapidly improve. I look forward to hearing your next podcast and to be able to say Welcome Back James
James Reply:November 19th, 2013 at 10:42 pm
Hi Margaret – slowly but surely I’ll get back to being more active. Things are improving each and every day so thank you so much for your comments
GREAT work. The sleep hypnosis is fantastic. Cheers!
I love your podcasts. Having searched high and low for relaxation exercises, yours was my favourite by far. I would be over the moon if you could run a podcast to help people go to sleep. I use your relaxation podcast for that purpose at the moment.
James Reply:November 19th, 2013 at 10:46 pm
Hi Tina – I’ve got just the thing for you. If you’ve not already signed up to my newsletter do so and you’ll receive a free download of a GREAT sleep hypnosis track. Go here and you’ll get it quicker: http://www.3minutehypnosis.com/hypnotism-for-sleep/
Hi There I listened your podcast on Itunes and it worked from the first time, great sleep in 3 mins!
Just wanted to say, your podcasts are amazing. I feel instantly relaxed and ready to face the world after listening to them. Thank you so much!

I recently downloaded your 3 minute sleep hypnosis….Brilliant!!! Genuinely really helped me. You did say you would appreciate any suggestions. Well I suffer with something called Derealisation/Depersonalisation In a nut shell horrendous feelings of unreality. Do you have any hypnosis for this?
James Reply:November 19th, 2013 at 10:48 pm
Hi Sean, sorry to hear about your problem. No I’ve not any hypnosis specifically for that, I’d need to research further to understand the problem so once I get my bum moving a bit on producing more tracks could I pick up with you?
I stumbled across your podcast on itunes while deployed to Afghanistan. I was able to (over about 4 days) download your Hypnotic Sleep podcast. Sleep was near impossible as an Infantryman, we were on call 24/7 for 371 days. In the rare events we were able to get sleep, I always fell asleep to your podcast. My peers chuckled as I listened to you, but when I got good sleep and they continued to fight fatigue, I was victorious! I played it out loud in our tent one night and guys were snoring like there gunfire! I appreciate your podcasts and share with everyone I know!

James Reply:November 19th, 2013 at 10:51 pm
Thanks William this really made my family and I laugh. Keep up the good work out there.
I’ve been listening to the podcasts for roughly one week now and find them extremely beneficial. Thank you.
Hi James I came across your hypnosis on a podcast and used it that day at work. The short session relaxed me totally and I actually felt like id had a nap. Ive used many hypnosis apps and like you they send me to sleep and are too long. I look forward to using your short sessions some more Keep up the good work!
Have really appreciated your podcasts for shifting out of a negative reactive
State to a better place in such a short space of time.
It’s brilliant that you are on iTunes and wish I have seen your confident public speaking
Before I had to deliver my best woman speech last year!!
This may sound like a strange request but is it
Possible to create a 3 min hypnosis that enables
A person to relax and do so even more deeply at
A sound that they previously experienced great
I have a have a young child who has a deliberate cry
She uses to endure she has my attention. She uses
This when she is not distressed (its a different cry)
And can switch it off immediately she wants to.
She is awakening in the early hours and does this. I am
Now trying to ignore it and not go into her room and she
Dies stop and resettles herself happily with an audio cd.
Whilst I am not responding I find myself feeling very tense
Angry and stressed, listening out for it even when she is
Awake but quiet . I have tried to do relaxation CDs and
Some of your 3 min podcasts (eg beautiful day. Wash away
Stress, instant anxiety relief ) and found ghese helpful at other
Times but the scream effect goes through them. Any ideas please?
James Reply:November 19th, 2013 at 10:55 pm
Hi Kirsty, one idea I have is to use the sound as an anchor for another feeling. Often the sound of crying babies is already associated with the emotion in parents to care for them. In this case, maybe the deliberate cry could be anchored to a feeling of confidence or certainty that nothing is wrong. (Anchoring is covered in the Instant confidence track, go HERE to grab your coffee along with explanations of how it works and lots of other goodies – just buy me a coffee!
James, I’ve had a terrible time sleeping and came across your podcast and have yet to make it to the end of your hypnotic sleep episode. I’m sleeping much better and have you to thank. Will you be updating with any new podcasts? Thank you for all you do!
James Reply:November 19th, 2013 at 10:57 pm
Hi Ken, yes there will be more, I’m being a bit slow (distracted with real life) right now but rest assured, all the great feedback I get here is inspiring me to pull my finger out!
Hi James I know I’m a bit late on this scene but I discovered your podcasts about a week ago.
They are helping me a great deal especially with regards to positive thinking.
I just wanted to say thank you.
James Reply:January 22nd, 2013 at 12:44 pm
Thanks Bren, appreciate your feedback. Let me know if I can help further.
Please give me hypnosis for my agoraphobia. I’ve had it for 60 years! I can’t function out in the world. I am afraid of everything! Please, Please help me. I can’t go on like this. Eileen
James Reply:January 11th, 2013 at 9:00 pm
Hi Eileen please send me an email and I’ll see what I can do to help
I have been listening to your podcasts and love them! I have the found the “bad memories” podcast so helpful- it really works, and I listen to the sleep podcast every night. Do you have any podcasts, for purchase or download, for weight loss? I have searched your website and can’t find anything.
James Reply:January 11th, 2013 at 9:01 pm
Hi there, I’ve not got anything just yet, but watch this space….
I am 82, and have experienced agoraphobia most of my life. I relied on my husband, totally. I lost him 6 years ago, and I can’t move forward. I am afraid of everything. I have to psyche myself up every day to do the tasks and errands I have to do to live, and, sometimes I’d rather not live. I realize I don’t have much longer on this earth, and am terrified of the thought of being so helpless. I can’t afford to pay for CD’s or anything, and am at the end of my rope. Can you please help me? I have tried moving energy with a practitioner, who helped me without charging me, but I can’t get past the guilt of all the lying and conniving I did when I was with my husband and children. I let him get away with everything, even a year-long affair, when I took him back because of my fear. Please help me know what I can do. I have tried to turn back to God, because I felt I had to turn away from Him. I didn’t deserve him. But, I still think I’m so guilty, I don’t deserve Him. Thank you for listening. Love, Eileen Rozelle
James Reply:January 11th, 2013 at 9:02 pm
Hi Eileen please send me a private message / email and get in touch.
I have the most hardest times sleeping and I thought that there was nothing that could help me sleep other then sleeping pills. But with in two months the pills stopped working. My best friend told me about this and that it really worked so I had to try it my self. I downloaded it to my IPad and IT REALLY WORKS WITHOUT A DOUBT! I had the most sleep last night that I have had in years.
James Reply:January 2nd, 2013 at 8:23 pm
Fantastic – glad you are getting benefit from the tracks. Thank Michael.
Would like to personally thank James, these tracks for relieving bad memories and anxiety have changed the way I look at my problem. Thanks to James I am on my way to overcoming my anxiety…., if you suffer from anxiety and want guidance or help on dealing/releasing it I highly recommend you listen. Personally I have used the podcasts of iTunes. Thanks again you are a very good person !
Regards Christopher dandy
Thanks Christopher for your kind words.
Hi James… Firstly thank you very much i have been a big fan of hypnosis for many years and it has helped me in many aspects of life… So far you 3 min stress buster i downloaded from itunes is one of best… I was wondering if you could do a slightly longer and personalised one if i was to give you the details of what i wanted to include in my hypnosis and also what the price would be..
James Reply:December 21st, 2012 at 9:00 pm
No problem at all – I’ve created several custom tracks for people. Please get in touch and we can discuss your requirement.
james @ 3minutehypnosis . com
Hello, I just bought the downloads but am confused about where to find them, or the free ones. Thank you for your help-
‘Experimenting’ with self hypnosis and your 3 minute sessions are the best I’ve found. I subscribed but had a problem with the free download, as in it didn’t download. I can’t find a link anywhere to try again. Please advise.
I was so glad to hear you are coming back, with a vengeance.. I loved your previous podcasts and look forward to hearing much more. I would like to hear how you would deal with this fast paced life we all seem to lead, not from choice. Calmness is hard to achieve. I hope my suggestion is within your agenda. Thanks
James Reply:December 21st, 2012 at 8:59 pm
Thanks, I’ve hit a bit of a stall in my come back I’m still on it, just had a few family problems of late that have side-tracked things somewhat. Many thanks for your suggestion.
I just wanted to say that your podcasts on 3mins Hypnosis have had a huge impact in my life. I’ve had gastrointestinal problems since March 2012 and nobody can figure out what I have. My Naturopath is the one who suggested Anxiety and Stress which might be the cause of my loss of appetite and nausea. I’ve always been a slim person and managed to gain 30 lbs last year. Since March I’ve lost all of it and now I guess I’m stressing over the fact that I’m going to look like a skeleton like I did years ago.
It’s an ongoing battle and I know one day I will defeat it. But your hypnosis has definitely helped me tremendously and am very grateful for that. You have a great talent for that, keep it up.
Thank you so much for the wonderful sessions. They really are wonderful and I will try and support you as much as I can in any way possible. Thanks again for everything and continue the GREAT work.
James Reply:December 21st, 2012 at 8:58 pm
Thank you so much Vince, I hope you all the very best with your recovery. The mind really can affect the body, and stress, anxiety and “dis-ease” . Relaxing and laughing – there is great healing power in that.
I must be missing something, im looking to buy a pack of anti anxiety and sleep aid tracks. The pod casts work good, i would just like to have some variety… Thanks
I have suffered frorm depression over the last ten years (first got after my second child was born). I have had two good years but am now during my six week break as a teacher getting more anxious and more anxious to the point that I in a complerte state. My fingers are a bit numb, my arms are shaking and I’ve got my teeth clenched together to stop my teeth chattering. I didn’t sleep a wink last night and came down to the computer and found your pod casts. I tried hypnotic sleep first and later in the night wash away stress, anxiety and worries and another point came down and did the bits of ironing I had. I feel I am so over anxious that the self hypnosis just wont work…I simply am unable to let go off the tension. I will suddenly realise one of my fists is clenched or I’m sitting grasping my arms around myself. I went to my GP yesterday and have been put on anti-depressants. I cant eat either and find concentrating hard plus making decisions. I think the podcasts will be of great benefit once I’m a bit better but what can I do in the meantime. I’m so desperate:(
Aaron Reply:August 8th, 2012 at 3:05 am
I would suggest you listen to all the tracks on anti anxiety and the sleep track as well, along with looking up EFT on youtube
Hello James, Please would you record another podcast, your previous ones are so very helpful. I have them on my ipod and listen to them every day. You have many followers and I’m sure I speak for them all. I check ITunes at least once a week, so far with much disappointment, but I’ll continue to do so as I’m sure you havent forgotten us. Thank you
James Reply:December 21st, 2012 at 8:55 pm
Really sorry – I’ve been very much focussed on clients and family and really been slack on iTunes of late. That’s changing – sign up to my mailing list and I’ll keep you informed.
Just wanted to let you know that I somewhat randomly found your podcast, and your MP3 on helping sleep has already been a huge success letting me catch small naps on days when I got little or no sleep the day before.
The only downside — I seem to go into a sleep state during the podcast (it could be hypnosis, but really feels like sleep). But then I wake right at the end of the recording, just when I should now be prepared for a restful sleep. Perhaps this is because I have only used these trying to take a nap (for which they have been really useful), rather than before going to bed for the night.
Anyway, wanted to thank you for offering the free podcasts. There’s no question in my mind that they are a real boon.

I expect you’re getting very deeply relaxed, then “coming up” at the end of the track. If you want me to edit the track without the wake up call at the end get in touch I think you could download the sleep track and with that one it doesn’t bring you back up – lets you ease off to sleep.
How often Should you listen to podcasts? For example I don’t like speaking in front of groups. I’d like to work on this issue…. What would be the plan of hypnosis to help this? Listen to podcasts daily? Weekly?
James Reply:December 21st, 2012 at 8:52 pm
If you look at the intro pack, you’ll get different pieces tat you can tie together perfectly for public speaking. It’s on special at the moment (Dec 2012) – only $4.97
The main benefit of 3 minute hypnosis over other longer tracks is that you can use them when you need them – I’d recommend using them often, but the KEY time to use them is right when you need them. So if you are preparing to speak in front of a group, nip to the toilets maybe and listen to the track, then go back and do your speaking. You could even listen while waiting to step up on stage etc.
Another excellent tool to look into is EFT – emotional freedom technique, or “tapping”- google it.
Listen to your podcasts daily, great help but unfortunately anxiety won’t go away and is getting worse. Your podcast for for sleep is fantastic and has helped me lots but the racing in my head and the anxiety in my tummy just won’t go away . Anything more I can do .U have been a huge help in dark times . Thank u

Hi Geraldine, get in touch with me directly and I’ll give you some more tips. My email is james @ 3minutehypnosis . com
I wanna THANK you for these podcasts. In a little over a week of daily listening, I have experienced such a change in my own thinking and responses to stresses in life. I never thought it was possible to feel true relief from the mental disorder i deal with daily. And here it is. Thank you for the time and effort you put in for all of US. Many blessings.
I am totally loving your podcasts, especially the one for sleep. I’ve recently gone through a break up and thought that sleep was impossible. So far I’ve not managed to finish the entire session as I’m normally passed out by the time I reach the bottom in the stairs, that’s all I remember. Previously as well due to normal stresses in life I’d never managed to sleep the entire night through without getting out of bed. This has helped me so much. I also tried the anxiety relief today during lunch which was a help too. Didn’t remove my nervous energy though as I couldn’t sit still for any longer than 30 mins, however I may have been much worse without. I’m keen to try the other ones too should the occasion require it.
Thank you do much!
Hi James, a quick thankyou for your podcasts which Im finding great. Such a hugh change to the normal longer sessions which are usually found. Only 3 minutes! Quick to use anytime without having to settle down for sometimes 45 mins or so. One question I would love you to address please James. I always find it hard to concentrate etc, my mind seems to go off thinking about stuff and I wonder if I get the benefit of the track anyway. Also if Im weary and tired I think I fall asleep, so once again is there any benefit received. As Im not naturally good at concentrating [my mind is always elsewhere instead of where it should be at times] because Im always day dreaming etc. am I still receiving your suggestions even though I think I dont.
Best to you and kindest regards.. Liz from the Land DownUnder……
I was wondering what you would recommend for slight post traumatic stress? I have tried both the 3 minute and extended wash away exercise but am still looking for something more?
I was wondering if you would do a 3 minute hypnosis for pain relief? I use your relaxation podcast so thanks…

Hi Gaynor, I’ve got this on my list – will be getting onto it very soon. Thanks for your suggestion!
Request: Social anxiety podcast: Improve communication, think on your feet, articulation.

I like your suggestion Kia. Why don’t you check out my podcast track for public speaking? It is similar – focussing on “giving” to the audience and the VALUE of your message, rather than YOU worrying about what THEY must be thinking about YOU or how you are DELIVERING the message. Worth checking it out? Let me know what you think.
Hey james i love the podcasts , i was wondering if you could create an instant depression relief, that i could use , Many Thanks,
James Reply:September 14th, 2011 at 11:12 pm
Thanks for the suggestion Noah – added to my list, watch this space!
Hello James, just stopping by to thank you for the podcasts, i started listening to them last year after a friend recommended them to me. I started off with the introductory “What is Hypnosis” podcast which i found incredibly informative, and loved your analogy of how the subconscious mind functions, and have since gone on to listen to all your podcasts, finding them very helpful in clearing and relaxing my mind.
James Reply:September 14th, 2011 at 11:11 pm
Glad you enjoyed my breakdown of what hypnosis is. I highly recommend you study into the subject further if it has struck your curiosity. I truly believe that using self hypnosis techniques you can not only change your day, but change your life.

Hello James, this is a follow up on my previous post. I am studying Media Production and Education Studies, and as a result have taken to creating videos as educational resources in my spare time. I have wanted to do a video on the science behind hypnosis for some time, and have always regarded your information on hypnosis the most accessible and interesting. I would like to ask your permission to cite a few of your podcasts in the video, as well as (if you wish) leaving a link to your website so people with an interest in pursuing it further could check out your material.
Feel free to contact me on here or via e-mail if you wish to discuss this concept further.
James Reply:December 21st, 2012 at 8:46 pm
You are very welcome to cite my podcasts – a link would be great. Thanks Josh.
First time listener – I enjoyed the “New Instant Confidence Boost V2″ podcast.
One nitpick comment is that there was a distracting clicking sound in the background throughout the episode. Not sure if you were clicking a mouse while recording or it if was from something else but it made it quite difficult to fully focus on the content you were delivering.
Good work though!
James Reply:September 14th, 2011 at 11:09 pm
Hi Robert thanks for your comments – I’ll take a look into fixing the clicks – sorry for letting that through, watch this space! In the meanwhile, I hope you continue to enjoy the confidence download and other podcasts.
Just a quick comment – I’ve a new Podcast now out on ITunes etc. “Confident Public Speaking” – let me know what you think!
Just wanted to say the podcasts are absolutely great. I find them very thought provoking and help to rationalise thought processes. It would be a great help if you could do one on anxiety about social situations and the feeling that blocks you from being yourself in those settings because youre too preoccupied with how the other people are perceiving you?
Just a thought, but either way, keep up the good work and thanks.
James Reply:July 18th, 2011 at 10:24 pm
Hi Dave – great Idea! I’ve just created a free Podcast on confident public speaking, the main theme throughout being the need to concentrate on the VALUE you are GIVING to your audience and NOT wondering what your audience may be thinking about YOU. I find this approach hugely beneficial – many people refer to it as being “Self-Conscious” but in reality you are being “Other-Conscious” – in other words, you’re not being conscious of yourself, but much too conscious of “them” and what you think they must think….
A handy tip – buy the book “Psycho-Cybernetics” by Maxwell Maltz. It is a very practical and helpful guide to managing these very kind of issues. Also, look out for more podcasts! If I can help, please let me know.
I have just taken advantage of your offer, and now have 6 ‘instant’ tracks, 2 ‘anchoring’ and ‘so what is hypnosis’. I don’t seem able to find the instant and deep stress relaxation tracks. How do I access them, please?
James Reply:July 18th, 2011 at 10:19 pm
Hi there, I hope I can help – when you sign up for the newsletter / FREE Hypnosis tracks you get sent an email to confirm you have signed up. You need to click the link there to confirm your email and then you get sent another email with the links for your free downloads. You can opt out of the email at any time. Let me know if that doesn’t help and I can point you in the right direction or give you direct links.
hi. I have been suffering from severe anxiety and depression for 4 years and have gotten to the point where i am at my wits end. I found ur podcasts last night and immediately downloaded them. I have not been able to relax so completely in a long long time and i am so grateful for what you do. I just wanted to leave a comment to say thanks, i have a feeling that this could make things a lot easier for me.
James Reply:July 18th, 2011 at 10:26 pm
Thanks for your kind words Megan I really appreciate your taking the time to leave comments. If I can be of any further help please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Wow! New job, huge project due, listened to the Instant Anxiety Relief podcast. Was able to focus for the first time in months without a feeling of dread! Thanks so much, you spread good Karma, thanks.
Thanks Bob, so do you – good luck with your project!
You made me cry tears of joy for the first time in my life. I feel great, almost like I rebirth after the podcast. They really helped me thanks.
