About Kristian von Sponneck

Kristian von Sponneck – Clinical Hypnotherapist & Master NLP Practitioner. A specialist in Pain Management with specialist training in Smoking Cessation & Weight Management. Clinical Hypnotherapist, Trainer & Demonstrator.

I would like to introduce myself; my name is Kristian von Sponneck, I’m 49 years of age and a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, practicing full time from The Windmill Studio Centre in Ruislip Manor (Middlesex).

One night in Ibiza whilst on holiday with my son, I was Hypnotised by a Stage Hypnotist, a night I wont forget (or at least the parts I remember). And so, the fascination with Hypnotism started. Self taught, I started performing Stage Hypnotism along with Mentalism. This soon overtook my life, courses in all fields surrounding Hypnotism were taken and that was it.

In 2004, I sold my successful company, Stage Audio Ltd, a London based professional sound and light retailer, coincidentally sold to Simon Ambrose who went on to win season 3 of the Apprentice in 2007.

A proud father of Johann, aged 23 (an officer in the RAF and flying planes), Charlotte aged 18 and Melanie who is 9 years of age.

I am currently studying Neuroscience and studying in depth the topic of pain and the ways in which Hypnosis can help.

And for anyone that has an interest in history, I am a Danish Count (Rigsgreve) of German decent. A nobleman from birth, I’m very laid back and certainly have no ‘airs and graces’ (the phrase that means for someone to behave in a way that shows that they think they are more important than other people). I can at least say for sure, I am a gentleman….a dying breed. For an extensive look into the Spon(n)eck family, click here.

* Please note, I am not a General Practitioner or Medical Doctor. The American Institute of Hypnotherapy (AIH) Doctorate was approved by the California Bureau for private postsecondary & vocational education. Therefore, the degree is ‘approved’ and not ‘accredited’ and is (as of the time of writing) the 2nd most in depth qualification worldwide in Clinical Hypnotherapy. There are practitioners in the UK, Australia, worldwide (especially America) that use the title ‘Dr.’ with this qualification. I do not use this title. The DCH from the AIH which I hold is not to be confused with other Doctor of Clinical Hypnotherapy qualifications offered on the internet.
