Thank you for making an important step towards health.
Having a cancer diagnosis can be devastating. You may be experiencing mixed feelings of anxiety, confusion, anger, and many more. You might have started to look at your options and probably got lost in the amount of conflicting advice out-there. Or you may be worried of a recurrence after treatment and want to explore what you can do for yourself so that the disease doesn’t come back. Overall, you know you’re in for a tough ride, and you may be wondering what you can do in order to live at your best and improve your odds.
I can help you!
And I mean you personally. You are a unique, wonderful individual. Your body is different. You are different. You have your own history, your own health setting and your own struggles. That’s why I offer a fully personalised one-on-one approach and take all of my clients from where they are. I work with you at your own pace.
What you will get
This is a very comprehensive programme which includes:
- My “Eat to Beat Cancer” Programme
- My “No-Drugs Pain Relief” Programme
- Mind-Body Healing with Mindscaping
- Hypnotherapy for Cancer Patients
- Holistic Lifestyle Coaching
Eat to Beat Cancer
A nutritional therapy and coaching programme based on a modified ketogenic diet, which:
- Assess your nutritional status
- Design a personalised action plan
- Coach your food choices
- Real foods
Nutrition should be front-line intervention for cancer patients. And maybe you have started to look around, trying to find out the best nutritional advice. This is where it gets confusing. There is so much opinion being thrown around everywhere, in every direction, and often what we hear sound contradictory to what someone else may have said.
This is because one very important point is being ignored: you are unique, with your own set of personal circumstances. You are not just a cancer patient. You are a wonderful individual, with your own history, your own biology, your own genes. And the nutritional advice for the young champion at the gym may not be applicable for you.
Therapies, which lower blood glucose levels while elevating ketone body levels, could be an effective non-toxic therapy for increasing progression free survival in patients with malignant brain tumors.
Metabolic management of glioblastoma multiforme using standard therapy together with a restricted ketogenic diet: Case Report. Zuccoli et al; https://doi.org/10.1186/1743-7075-7-33
Within 7 days of initiating the ketogenic diet, blood glucose levels declined to low-normal levels and blood ketones were elevated twenty to thirty fold. Results of PET scans indicated a 21.8% average decrease in glucose uptake at the tumor site in both subjects. One patient exhibited significant clinical improvements in mood and new skill development during the study. She continued the ketogenic diet for an additional twelve months, remaining free of disease progression.
Effects of a ketogenic diet on tumor metabolism and nutritional status in pediatric oncology patients: two case reports. Nebeling & al. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7790697
Ketogenic diets may act as an adjuvant cancer therapy by two different mechanisms that both increase the oxidative stress inside cancer cells. […] Preliminary reports indicate that patients who were able to continue the ketogenic diet therapy for over 3 months showed improvement with a stable physical condition, tumor shrinkage, or slowed growth
Ketogenic diets as an adjuvant cancer therapy: History and potential mechanism, Bryan G.Allen & al, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.redox.2014.08.002
Nutritional therapy is an evidence-based personalised approach where the therapist will assess the food habits, health and symptoms of the client, establish the priorities, offer a plan of action, and follow it up with the client.
The Ketogenic Diet is a key element of this programme, as recent scientific findings show it has a great potential as an adjuvant therapy for cancer patients. The diet essentially targets the metabolic weaknesses of cancer cells in order to promote faster recovery.
No-Drugs Pain Relief
A medical hypnosis and coaching programme, which will help you:
- Switch-off pain perception
- Decrease painkillers
- Install life-changing habits
The treatment of cancer can be painful, and sometimes the disease itself is. So much so that for some, even the hospital pain relievers are of little help. And the pain is very real. But until the pain signal reaches the brain, it is only an electrical signal. This signal then gets interpreted in the brain as pain. The pain response is a very important and healthy behaviour of our brain, it is necessary to our survival as a species and as individuals. If you have a low pain threshold (meaning a little discomfort easily feels painful), you have better odds to survive.
Hypnotic suggestion relieves pain for the majority of people, regardless of the type of pain they are experiencing. […] Hypnotically suggested pain
reduction can be classified as a “well-established treatment”.
A meta-analysis of hypnotically induced analgesia: how effective is hypnosis? Montgomery & al, https://doi.org/10.1080/00207140008410045
Of the 8 patients who had hypnotherapy for pain control, all reported that the intensity of pain has significantly been reduced and as a result they have reduced their dose of opiate analgesics.
Efficacy of hypnotherapy as a supplement therapy in cancer intervention, Peynovska & al, European Journal of Clinical Hypnosis: 2005
Unfortunately, in the context of a medical treatment such as chemotherapy, which is not natural, pain gets in the way of our healing. Hypnosis has a very long and successful track record at lowering pain by reprogramming the brain to increase the pain threshold. The effect will be that your brain will start ignoring the pain signals, and in some cases letting go of them completely.
From James Esdaile who, in the 19th century, used only hypnosis for surgical anaesthesia, to modern practices that can reduce pain symptoms reliably, hypnosis is a truly efficient complementary therapy to reduce your discomfort.
In-person hypnosis with an experienced practitioner is very different to listening to an audio file and should yield much more powerful results. This is because the hypnotist can guide you dynamically in your own trance towards the correct depth where you are able to leverage the power of your unconscious mind and make the changes that you desire.
Mind-Body Healing with Mindscaping
A talk therapy designed to leverage the power of your unconscious.
- Works at a deep, metaphorical level
- Far-reaching, lasting mind and body shifts
- Results may surprise you!
It is estimated that less than 5% of your brain activity constitutes your conscious mind, the remaining 95% being your unconscious or subconscious. That means that the vast majority of your brain work is beyond your knowledge and awareness – and this includes activities like processing languages, creative thinking, food choice and all of those actions you make every minute without thinking about it. If a large part of the causes for cancer are within lifestyle choices, relying on those 5% to change your lifestyle may look like a very inefficient proposition.
Mindscaping is a way to approach your unconscious mind at a symbolic & metaphorical level to access and modify the elements from your life that are beyond your control. It is akin to a guided imagery, with elements of hypnosis, and yet is different to both. It uses elements of Time Line Therapy, Ericksonian hypnosis, NLP submodality shifts, The Cube system of personality typing, Jungian symbolism and archetype theory.
As many have discovered, metaphor can play a vital role in the healing process. Trough Symbolic Modelling, the conflict, imbalance, or dis-ease inherent in the client’s metaphor finds its resolution in unexpected and organic ways. When this happens, the individual usually experiences a corresponding change in her symptoms; sometimes immediately, and sometimes in the following days or weeks
Metaphor, the Body, and Healing. James Lawley and Penny Tompkins. Journal of the Counsellors and Psychotherapists Association of New South Wales
Imagery may help a patient become aware of how his or her symptoms develop and lead to changes in attitude or behavior that then lead to recovery.
Imagery is the interface between what we call body and what we call mind. It can help you to understand what needs may be represented by an illness and to develop healthy ways to meet those needs.
Guided Imagery for Self-Healing, Dr Martin L Rossman
During a Mindscaping session, you sit back, relax, close your eyes, and follow the guidance of your Mindscape coach. You’ll be asked to visualise things, to describe them, and to notice the changes as they occur. It’s a relaxing, fascinating, enlightening, and enjoyable experience. The best part however is the amazing transformational results you’ll recognise immediately following your session – or perhaps over the course of the next few days or weeks.
It is impossible to do this wrong, whatever mindscape you come up with, it will be the right one – because it will be yours.
Hypnotherapy for Cancer Patients
Hypnotherapy can help you deal with:
- Anxiety & stress
- Nausea & vomiting
- Insomnia & fatigue
- Uncontrolled habits
- Cachexia or excessive weight gain
Onco-hypnosis, also known sometimes as hypno-oncology, is the use of hypnosis as an adjunct therapy for cancer patients. Hypnotherapy can be used to great success and with no side effect to help manage symptoms of the disease or its treatment.
Hypnosis is easily one of the most misunderstood therapies there is. It is a totally natural mental state where, rather than a loss of control, you gain control over the faculties of your brain to which you don’t normally have access. All of us “do” hypnosis at some point or another of our lives, quite frequently on a daily basis.
This review has demonstrated that hypnosis could be a clinically valuable intervention for anticipatory and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting
Hypnosis for nausea and vomiting in cancer chemotherapy: a systematic review of the research evidence. Richardson & all. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2354.2006.00736.x
The tremendous volume of research provides compelling evidence that hypnosis is an efficacious treatment for state anxiety (e.g., prior to tests, surgery and medical procedures) and anxiety-related disorders, such as headaches and irritable bowel syndrome.
Hypnosis in the treatment of anxiety- and stress-related disorders, Corydon Hammond, Expert Review of Neurotherapeutics. https://doi.org/10.1586/ern.09.140
Our results demonstrate the effectiveness of hypnotic suggestions to specifically increase the amount and duration of slow wave sleep […]. Hypnotic suggestions might be a successful tool with a lower risk of adverse side effects than pharmacological treatments to extend slow wave sleep also in clinical and elderly populations.
Deepening Sleep by Hypnotic Suggestion, Cordi & al, Sleep. https://doi.org/10.5665/sleep.3778
Have you ever been so absorbed into an amazing movie or a gripping video game that you didn’t see the time pass? That is hypnosis. Have you ever driven all the way home only to realise you didn’t pay real attention to the road? That his hypnosis too. Have you ever been mesmerised at a burning log fire or a river, or the waves of the sea crashing ashore? Hypnosis again.
Everyone responds differently. In most cases, your mind will be active and alert. You will hear everything I’m saying and remember as much of it as you would from a normal discussion. You may feel very relaxed as if you are sinking into the chair, or very light as if floating in the air. Or you may feel totally dissociated, or like being on top of the world, or you may feel that today you are… just sitting in a chair. Your mind may wander, or it may be entirely focused. Whatever you end up doing and feeling will be correct.
Hypnosis with an experienced practitioner is very different to listening to an audio file and should yield much more powerful results. This is because the hypnotist can guide you dynamically in your own trance towards the correct depth where you are able to leverage the power of your unconscious mind and make the changes that you desire.
Holistic Lifestyle Coaching.
It is estimated that over 90% of cancers have their roots in environmental and lifestyle factors. Together we will work to improve 7 areas of your life which may have an effect on cancer. This would include
- Physical activity
- Toxic exposure
- Social & emotional health
- Spiritual opening
Getting better often requires having to look at other aspects of your life, which are no less important. In fact, poor sleep, inactivity and social circles can have a critical impact on your recovery.
Physical activity has the most robust effect of all lifestyle factors on reducing breast cancer recurrence. […] A meta-analysis of 22 prospective cohort studies found that breast cancer mortality was significantly reduced among women who reported participating in recreational physical activity after their breast cancer diagnosis
Lifestyle modifications for patients with breast cancer to improve prognosis and optimize overall health, J Hamer & al, https://dx.doi.org/10.1503%2Fcmaj.160464
The results suggest that mindfulness meditation may serve as an effective mind-body intervention for cancer patients to improve their quality of life, and the benefits can persist over a 3-month follow-up period. This occurred in a diverse population with various cancer diagnoses, strengthening the possibility of general use.

Hi! I’m Hervé, your therapist and health coach. All the therapies I practice have been backed by academic research, and, to the best of my understanding, are coherent with our wider body of scientific knowledge.
I am a nutritionist, medical hypnotist, massage therapist and health coach. I studied with the Nutritional Therapy Association, the International Certification Board in Clinical Hypnotherapy, the Mike Mandel Hypnosis Academy and the Middlesex School of Complementary Medicine.
I am married, father of two young boys. I have always had a passion for helping, and had several roles as volunteer, from the streets of Manila to the cancer wards of UK hospitals.
I initially trained as a physicist and spent almost 15 years of my life working alongside researchers in various domains of academia, including chemists and biologists. But after losing several members of my family to cancer, I decided to use my passion for complementary therapies to come and join the fight.
I practice in North-West London (Northwood), but I am available for you online wherever you are.
What my clients say
What This is Not
- This is NOT a pre-recorded course. I work with you and with your own situation
- This is NOT Gerson therapy. I practice science-backed nutrition and my therapies have been the object of academic research for a long time, and, to the best of my understanding, are coherent with our wider body of scientific knowledge.
- This is NOT a “detox” programme. I am not a “smoothie guy”. I believe, and I have evidence to back it, that a balanced diet, especially for cancer patients should represent our true omnivorous nature. However, if you feel you need to have a vegan approach, we work within your requirements.
- This is NOT an advocacy for veganism, vegetarianism, carnivorism, crudivorism, macrobiotism, low-fat-ism or any other form of dietary orthodoxy. I work with and respect your choices.
- This is NOT a “pill pushing” programme. I am not working for any vitamin, shake or meal replacement manufacturers. I do not do marketing of affiliate link with any manufacturers of the above. If we identify your need for a particular supplement, it will be up to you which manufacturer you want to use.
- The hypnotherapy is NOT me reading a script at you. I am trained in the neo-Ericksonian school, and have a more modern and flexible approach to hypnosis.
- This programme is not designed to treat cancer. I am trained to evaluate your nutritional needs and make recommendations of dietary change and nutritional supplements, provide hypnotherapy services and lifestyle and health coaching. I will not provide medical diagnoses or prescriptions. No comment, suggestion or recommendation from me should be construed as a medical diagnosis or prescription.
- Under no circumstances will I advise or suggest you abandon standard-of-care therapy such as but not limited to chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery. At this point in time, it is clear that the standard of care does offer results and saves lives. You will be requested to sign a disclaimer to show you fully understand the importance of continuing standard of care treatment.
- This is NOT an alternative to mainstream oncology. I work beside, before, after, or in-between conventional treatments and pay the utmost attention not to advise something that would be counter-productive with your current treatment. This is NOT a cancer cure.
Since the cancer act 1939, it is illegal in the UK to advertise about “offering to treat any person for cancer, or to prescribe any remedy therefor, or to give any advice in connection with the treatment thereof”.
Therefore, and although I work with cancer patients to remedy some of their symptoms as explained on this website, I need to make it clear that in no circumstances will I advise you to abandon any treatment you are currently receiving, nor will I say that I diagnose, treat or cure cancer.
This programme is not a substitute for medical diagnosis, assessment or treatment. Prior diagnosis by a medical professional may be required, and in some cases proof of treatment may be requested. Results are only indicative of those who have provided feedback – it is not predictive of the outcome of future individual sessions.
