Thomas W E Budge, Clinical Hypnotherapist
NLP Practitioner & Life Coach
Thomas Budge is a teacher, therapist and author with extensive experience using Hypnosis, NLP and Life Coaching. He has, over the years, won multiple international awards and acclaim for his work. Thomas consults in two main forms: In-person, face-to-face, one-on-one hypnotherapy sessions for clients living in and around Johannesburg, Centurion and Pretoria and via remote teleconferencing where he offers Hypnotherapy, NLP and Life Coaching counselling over digital teleconferencing platforms to English speaking clients in Africa, Europe, the United Kingdom, the Middle East and Indian Ocean Islands.
But, you may ask,
what are these techniques he uses, how do they work and how can I expect them to help me overcome specific issues in my life?
Hypnotherapy is an ancient mindcraft that miraculously found its way into our modern world. What was once a technique known only to a few select masters of the art of hypnosis, it is now a reliable, scientifically understood, powerful mind tool with worldwide acceptance and widespread application. As such, it is a magnificent tool to correct mistaken beliefs that lead to many issues in one's personal, social, business, spiritual and sports areas of life. Good hypnotherapy has an amazingly strong efficacy index of 1550 compared to Behavioural Therapy's index of 327 and Psychotherapy's index of only 19*.
NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) offers one a powerful approach to improving one's communication and fast-tracking one's personal development.
Life Coaching teaches one how to focus, get into states of flow, to improve one's motivation to drive specific personal projects and business successes. It helps one explore and understand the general conditions and transitions in one's personal life, spirituality, relationships and profession by examining what is going on right now to discover what obstacles and challenges one holds, so that one may choose a course of action that makes one's life be what you want it to be.
Thomas compounds the efficacy index by combining Hypnosis, NLP and Life Coaching.
By no means limited to these examples, combined Hypnotherapy, NLP and Life Coaching gives one a formidable set of tools for quitting smoking, for weight loss, for diets, for stress, for anxiety, for confidence, for fears and phobias, for relationships, for sexual difficulties, for memory, for concentration,for bad habits and for so much more.
You must be thinking,
This must come at quite a cost! It is pointless buying a beautiful pair of shoes with cardboard soles or a Ferrari with a Volkswagen engine. Because hypnotherapy has such a high efficacy index, one needs fewer sessions meaning that each session has high impact. Carefully choose your hypnotherapist, NLP practitioner or life coach. By wisely choosing a therapist you can trust, he becomes a reliable anchor, a safe, non-judgemental confident you can turn to whenever life gets tough. View your spend as an investment in your own future.

Featured Blogs and Podcasts
Enjoy dipping into Thomas's regular writings and listening to Soul Searching a weekly series of podcasts broadcast by a Pretoria radio station in the year spanning 2016/17. This series won the station's Programme of the Year Award in 2016. The show explores all spiritual, psychological and wellness matters that matter. Searching deep into the soul requires that one conducts a penetrating self-examination of one's motives, convictions and attitudes.
Mr Budge has really been of great assistance for several years in patients where subconscious stressors and drivers have caused patients to have physical illness or emotional issues. As such he has been of huge help with patients suffering with affective disorders, phobias, anxiety issues and suicidal ideation. At the same time he has referred patients to me where he considers medication to be of value so is not messianic in believing that hypnotism is the cure for all ills!! I can highly recommend him in helping patients understand that there are emotional drivers that have to be managed and that pills are not always enough.

Specialist Family Physician, Cedar Road, Fourways
I am sure you get many of these inquiries, and probably an excessive amount of mails and messages too, from folk who have been deeply touched by you, and that which you do. This quick mail is just to say thank you, truly, thank you, for listening, for dealing with and accepting the circumstances, for the coffee, for your time, and again, for reaching out as much as you did. I look forward to this evening's rest, and I still haven't pieced together where we went today, and what was going on. It still seems very pixelated … but I believe in where it is headed! I very much look forward to sharing my thoughts about it with you.
Overall it was just so wonderful to reconnect with you and it really felt timeless. You are indeed a most special soul and I thank you for the safe space and for being such an important person to connect with along my journey.
I was very happy with the session and even though it made me irritated, angry, grumpy, sad, felt sorry for myself, I will certainly be back and trust that you may very well be able to 'fix' me.
Thank you that you were willing to see me. You helped me to understand myself better. With time more things will clear in my mind, but this morning was the first morning I woke up with a feeling of love and peace and joy. I am slowly but surely understanding the concept of self-love and gratitude for everything and everyone. Thank you very much again.
I thought that the session that I had with you was just what I needed to unearth one of the 'stumbling blocks' in my life. I thought it really worthwhile and I know I rambled on relentlessly, but I think that you uncovered exactly what I needed to. I also used the information in a session of thought re-patterning the following day, which helped me to unravel other stuff stemming from that source. You have a gentle and approachable style, which makes it easy to communicate and share. I feel as though I've moved miles away from where I was and although I think I still have 'stuff' to work through, this in-road has made a difference. My husband told me that my eyes 'have come alive' again!
Mom and Wife
It is seldom that you come across a 'soul' who reaches out and just provides such a safe and secure environment that we are able to drop our 'man-made masks'. Thank you for relighting the candle inside of me. You are 'mentor in a million'. May you be richly blessed in return for your outpouring of love and compassion - you will touch many more people in the future I am sure.
Thank you for this morning and helping me discover so much about myself. Currently I am completely overwhelmed and do not know how to contain my thoughts and emotions. I want nothing more than to hold on to the peace and tranquillity I felt, which I haven't felt since I was a child. I felt so safe and secure with you there and I just wanted to thank you for being so gentle with my memories and emotions and helping me face these monsters I have obviously been afraid of for so long.
I would like to say a special thanks to Tom as my mentor, teacher and the person who reviewed my assignment ahead of my submitting the work to the SAIH. Without Tom's enthusiasm and his excellent way of working with his students I would not have been able to deliver the sort of work that the SAIH expects from its students.
Your generosity of spirit, time, expertise and caring has touched me profoundly.
