Meet the Team

It started back in 2000 when Mark had what he thought at the time (all will be revealed) was his first experience of Hypnosis for Stress Relief. Two further sessions, one to deal  with a Panic Attack and another to relieve debilitating Hay Fever, were positively life changing.
During the following couple of years, studying intensively, he was increasingly amazed at the effectiveness of Hypnosis. 
After qualifying, he began running a Hypnotherapy practice working with clients for all manner of issues, from stress and depression, through to addictions, weight and smoking.
Mark's success as a hypnotherapist resulted in him being invited to become a tutor for the training school he trained with (at the time possibly the largest in the UK). This was a valuable experience, and after a life-changing event in 2015, Mark, Sue and their dog Rosie moved to Portugal, setting up a new practice and establishing their own school. Evolve Minds Hypnosis Academy initially ran courses in Portugal and Spain, before expanding to offer online courses to a wider audience in 2020.

It was Sue's wonderful suggestion all those years ago that Mark visit a Hypnotherapist. 
Sue has been involved in her own Therapy practice too, as a Reiki Master/Teacher and also Reflexologist.
Before the move to Portugal, Sue, having sat in so many courses listening to Mark, was also inspired to return to her studies, gaining her Diploma in Hypnotherapy.
This has proved invaluable in the creation of Evolve Minds Hypnosis Academy. Many students have also experienced Sue's amazing flapjacks, lemon drizzle cake and baking in various forms, something we sadly haven't yet worked out how to provide for through our online courses.
