About Us

Shayne Rice BA(Hons) D.Hyp is a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Mind Coach and Smoking Cessation Therapist.

Shayne first became fascinated with hypnosis whilst living in London and began hypnotherapy training at Ealing Hospital in 1993.  He later trained with the Transformations School of Clinical Hypnotherapy in Nottingham where he gained his Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis and Mind Coaching.

He offers a very friendly and personable service taking extended time to fully explain what hypnosis is, and what hypnosis isn't.  During the free consultation pre-talk he will take time to understand the client's issues and history and discuss the full range of treatments available, together with a suggested strategy.

He is extremely sympathetic towards nervous clients, only moving forward at a pace the client is comfortable with.  All details discussed and subsequent treatments undertaken are totally confidential and in line with The General Hypnotherapy Register's Code of Ethics.

We also have a fully qualified female Hypnotherapist available should clients prefer a female therapist.


We offer a very flexible service and totally understand clients have work commitments too.  Plus we're aware that asking for time off to visit a Hypnotherapist might not be what you'd prefer to tell your manager, although there should be no embarrassment of this.

We offer appointments during the day and after work hours to suit.  Monday to Friday 9am-8pm, Saturday 9am-5pm, Sunday 10am-4pm.

We're also happy to make home visits, all we need is a comfortable chair and a quiet place we won't be disturbed for a while.  We won't turn down the offer of a coffee!

I just wanted to say 'thank you' to Aktive Hypnotherapy for the session last week; the consultation was informative and non pressured and the following session, which was was a first for me, has assisted me to be calmer, less anxious and I have been smoke free for a week. Thanks Shayne for your belief in me and for your professional and personable approach.

I saw you only two days ago and already I feel "different", can't really explain it. But somehow I feel lighter in my head. Wake up feeling awake, walking around humming and singing.... Not so good for those around me!!  So a very very big thank you. Things can only get better.

Daniel - Derby

I'll confess I was sceptical at first, but after that one session my anxiety has completely gone!  Having suffered for years I feel free and no longer worrying about when the next attack might come on.  Thank you, I'd recommend you to anyone who suffers how I did.

Louise - Leicester

You helped me during a very difficult, emotional and testing time.  Your sessions lifted my confidence and self esteem, and you taught me how to feel strong and able to tackle all that I was facing.  The very next morning I was walking with my head held high and ready to tackle all that was facing me.  I'll always be grateful.

I was apprehensive the first time i went for hypnotherapy, However Shayne made me feel really comfortable and explained what was going to happen. I suffer with habbits that really effect me day to day such as Trichotillomania. I had no eyelashes or eyebrows. I also bite my nails after 2 sessions with Shayne at Aktive Hypnotherapy and a month later I have got my eyelashes back, Eyebrows are growing as well as my nails. I can't thank Shayne enough you have giving me my confidence back. Highly recommended!
