On-line Video-Call Consultations/Treatments
Although I am based in Solihull, West Midlands, I regularly hold online, video-call consultations and treatments for clients who find it difficult to attend in person, either because of distance or disability. I can, therefore see clients from any location, including overseas. So whether you live in Birmingham or Brighton, Solihull or Sydney, are in the West Midlands or West Africa, we can hook-up online!
Fortunately, physical contact is not necessary for most hypnotherapy treatments and can work equally well over a clear video-call link. Technology is now so advanced and versatile that it is possible to use your mobile phone, tablet or laptop to provide a suitable audio and visual link between the client and the therapist. As the art of hypnotherapy is more about the verbal element of the treatment, it loses nothing over a clear connection. Feedback from clients who have experienced treatments of this nature has all been positive. All you need to participate in a session of this nature is access to a comfortable, quiet space and a device capable of operating a video-call app, such as Skype, FaceTime and Zoom.
Due to the current government restrictions he conducted the sessions over Skype. I was initially sceptical that this would work or would be inferior to seeing a therapist in person, how wrong could I have been. After the first session I was instantly more relaxed and slept amazing that night. I couldn't believe it! I then had two more sessions to reinforce the techniques Rob had taught me and have continued to sleep soundly since.
I urge anyone who needs support or is experiencing difficulties during this period to contact Rob. I genuinely can't thank him enough!"
I have seen many people transform their lives with just a few sessions of hypnotherapy - and I could do the same for you! For an example of how life-changing it can be, please watch this short video testimony from Tracey, who came to me with a severe spider phobia. Four weeks later her phobia had completely gone and she describes the hypnotherapy as having 'completely changed my life'!
At the beginning of each session Rob reviews how you are feeling and the session is tailored accordingly. Rob understood me a lot better than the doctors and other therapists I had visited and therefore it was so easy to put my trust in Rob! Words cannot express enough my sincere thanks to Rob for helping me regain my health. Now Rob sees me smiling!” (Marie, Solihull)
Tina came to me recently, with anxiety issues about job interviews, a few weeks later, she not only was a different person (so to speak), but had a new job too! Here is her testimonial:
The interview came and for the first time ever I felt confident and comfortable with myself, was able to control and deal with the nerves that I had, and the interview went incredibly well. I was offered the job the same afternoon! I feel completely different now and have more confidence and feel so much happier. Thank you Rob!” (Tina, West Midlands)
I would recommend Rob as a Hypnotherapist because he understands people’s problems and he knows how to treat them.” (Denise)
Focus & Self Belief:
Customisable Treatment Plans
I do not merely use the same methods/techniques with everybody and instead prefer to customise the sessions according to the needs of each individual. For example, my Stress Management Programme offers a versatile approach (usually between 4 and 8 sessions) and encompasses a range of techniques and therapies (including hypnotherapy, EMDR and holistic therapies) designed to look at the whole person, get to the root of the issue(s) and work towards living a life without stress.
For more details this, see Stress Management Programme
Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR usually combined with hypnotherapy is a simple, but remarkably effective technique that allows negative emotions to be removed and a new perspective introduced that can encourage and enhance a positive mindset. It is becoming an increasingly popular therapy method for treating emotional disorders, as the research of it continues to grow and gain credibility.

What to expect at a hypnotherapy session with Rob
My clients overwhelmingly say they feel comfortable with me, enjoy my sessions and gain huge benefits from the work we do together. Treatments are generally done at my home in Olton, Solihull, where I have a dedicated treatment room that is separated from the rest of the house and has beautiful garden and sky views. The treatment room is a quiet and private location, ideal for hypnotherapy and stress management work. I have an extremely comfortable, reclining chair for clients use during the relaxing hypnotherapy sessions and standard, upright chairs for consultations. There are ground-floor toilet facilities available, if needed. I work from home, but the house is generally empty when I am working.
The full address is: 34 Dene Court Road, Olton, Solihull, West Midlands, B92 8DL
Or, if travelling to my home is not possible, treatments can be done in the comfort of your own home, via an online link, using video call technology, such as Skype, FaceTime or What'sApp. This can be done, regardless of whether you are local to Solihull, the West Midlands generally or anywhere in the world!
What Can You expect at a hypnotherapy treatment?
A first session is to establish the background to the issue that the client wants the therapy for and to establish what they want to achieve through having the sessions. As this is a crucial part of the therapy, it may take up to 30 minutes of the first session. The first hypnotic intervention will take the remainder of the first session, with its main purpose being to relax the client and start the process of making lasting changes. The second and third sessions will build on this accordingly
How many treatments will I need?
I usually recommend at least 3 sessions for most conditions, but some may require more. For anxiety, for example, I usually recommend 4 sessions and matters to do with health may require 4 or more, to establish a new pattern of health.
Will I be aware of what is happening during hypnotherapy sessions?
Absolutely. There is no feeling of ‘losing control’ and you will still be aware of your surroundings to an extent during the therapy. A hypnotic state is a slightly altered state of awareness, more akin to
a meditative or daydream state.
How long does a hypnotherapy session take?
Standard sessions are typically around one hour in length, however, they may often be longer, depending on the complexities of individual sessions. No extra charge is made for any additional time, the most important thing is completing what needs to be completed in the session.
A first session will usually be between 75 and 90 minutes in length, as it will include an in-depth consultation.
Where are the treatments done?
Treatments are usually done at my home in Olton, Solihull, where I have a dedicated treatment room that is separated from the rest of the house and has beautiful garden and sky views.
Address: 34 Dene Court Road, Olton, Solihull, B92 8DL
Or, if travelling to my home is not possible, treatments can be done in the comfort of your own home if you are local to Solihull or South Birmingham, for an extra £5-10 per treatment (depending on distance to travel) to cover additional time and travel expenses incurred.
How early should I arrive before my appointment?
It is best to arrive as close to your appointment time as possible, as I may have other clients booked in either side of your appointment. The treatment room needs to be fully prepared for each client prior to the treatment, so if clients arrive more than a few minutes before the appointment time I may not be ready and there may be no one around to let you in!
Where can I park?
Dene Court Road is a relatively quiet street, so parking is usual possible right outside or very close to the property. If the drive is free, there is usually space for one car for a few hours before 4pm each day.
What are your opening hours?
Monday - Thursday 9am - 7.30pm
Friday - 9am - 5.30pm
Saturday - 10am - 4pm
PLEASE NOTE - If you are unsure if hypnotherapy (or my practice) is right for you, I offer a FREE 30 MINUTE CONSULTATION, where you can discuss any aspect of the process and you will be welcome to leave prior to any hypnotic intervention work if you have any reservations.

As well as being a qualified Hypnotherapist, I am also qualified Reflexologist, a Reiki Master, Practitioner of Indian Head Massage and Scenar Therapy. I am passionate about natural health and I have run a holistic health practice in Solihull since 2008. For more information about these services, please see my sister website: Solihull Holistic Health
I trained in Hypnotherapy in 2013, as it was clear to me that the mind plays a huge part in the role of health, both physical and mental. This has been a fantastic addition to my skills-set, as I have seen a whole range of people, with all manner of issues, overcome the obstacles that were holding them back, to transform their lives. In 2015 I completed an Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma, which has given me even greater insight into the world of the sub-conscious and more tools to use in my hypnotherapy sessions.
Most of my previous career had been spent in teaching, training and advising (mainly adults) and has involved working with the broadest range of people imaginable, including learners with disabilities - including autism, people whose first language is not English and people within the probation service who were endeavouring to turn their life around for the better. All this has given me empathy and an understanding of the complex issues faced by individuals in our rich and varied society. This, I feel, is a highly important factor in making me the accomplished hypnotherapist that I am today.
I am now committed full time to my Hypnotherapy and Holistic Therapy work as this is where my true passions lie.

SAFE ENVIRONMENT Covid 19 special measures from 4th July 2020
I line with recommendations from the government, The Association of Reflexologists and The General Hypnotherapy Register, Solihull Holistic Health/Rob Buckle Hypnotherapy will be implementing the following measures to ensure a safe environment that reduces the possibility of the spread of infection.
• A risk assessment done with each client prior to a treatment. Clients displaying any symptoms of Covid 19 will not be able to attend an appointment
• Additional cleaning of all surfaces in the treatment room will be done with disinfectant wipes prior to every client appointment
• An air purifier and essential oil diffuser in the treatment room will be on throughout the session to keep the air clean and fresh
• The couch/reclining chair will have either clean towels or paper couch roll placed over it and refreshed for every client.
• At least 30 minutes will be allowed between each client to allow for appropriate cleaning and refreshing of the room to take place
• Clients will be encouraged to bring their own water and blankets (if required)
• Hand sanitiser will be available for client use
• Social distancing protocols will be observed wherever possible
Still worried about booking an appointemnt, due to Covid 19? Here are some facts to ease your concerns...
• The World Health Organisation (WHO) stated in June 2020 that the likelihood of someone who is asymptomatic spreading the virus is ‘rare’.
• An independent study into infectivity of 455 asymptomatic Covid 19 carriers, concluded that the evidence of the virus being transmitted to others was ‘weak’ (you can read the full report of the study here: @28
• The CV 19 infection-to-death rate is approximately 0.28% for the general population. That is a survival rate of 99.72%!
• Of those who died after contracting CV 19, at least 89% had known serious underlying health conditions that they were already being treated for (some studies place this as high as 99%)
• By far the highest risk category for Covid 19 is the over 70s age group and it is only considered life-threatening to them if they have at least one serious, underlying health condition that has weakened their immune system.
• The CDC stated in June 2020: “While the percentage of certified deaths related to Covid 19 is still above the epidemic threshold, it is now similar to what has been observed at the peak of some flu seasons”.
The best defence against Covid 19 and any other viral infection is a healthy immune system. Having a regular holistic health treatment is one of the best ways to boost your immune system, together with a healthy lifestyle, which should include natural supplements, such as Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Magnesium
