Scottish Hypnotherapist Andrew Johnson to Ohmygossip.com: I´m lucky enough to have a business that can be operated from anywhere in the world

OHMYGOSSIP – “I am lucky enough to have a business that can be operated from anywhere in the world (as long as there is an internet connection). Over the last 3 years, I have been limited with the distances I can travel, but will be venturing further afield soon,” Scottish Hypnotherapist and Relaxation Coach Andrew Johnson tells to Ohmygossip.com.

Andrew Johnson, please, tell us about yourself? What you do for a living?
I am a Scottish Hypnotherapist and Relaxation Coach.

Where and when you were born? Where do you live now? 
I was born in Glasgow in 1961 and have lived in many places. At the moment I am in Ayrshire on the West Coast of Scotland.

Are you a psychic, coach, psychologist, doctor? What is your job title? Where and what you have studied?
I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist. I studied Clinical Hypnosis in 1994/95 and since then I have trained in Meditation, Mindfulness and EFT.

You have tens of thousands social media followers (@andrewjohnson; Andrew Johnson´sFacebook) . What is your secret, how you grow your fan base?
The followers come mainly from the social media links in my iPhone and Android Apps. I maintain my accounts personally and try my best to communicate with everyone who connects. I use Twitter primarily for making connections and Facebook for deeper integration with my customers.

Your website (withandrewjohnson.com) states that over 20 years you have been helping people relax, change and create the lives they want through your range of self-care MP3 downloads, Apps and Workshops. Please describe how these Apps exactly work?
The apps start with an induction to guide listeners down into relaxation (also known as mindfulness, meditation, hypnosis or trance). This is a wonderful experience and can induce very deep levels of relaxation. The app continues with positive suggestions, affirmations, visualisations and much more. These techniques can help break unwanted habits, create new, positive habits, break addictions, boost confidence, clarity, willpower and much more.

Your website also states that with over 10 million downloads to date, your recordings are the best selling “Self-help” recordings on the Apple and Android App stores. Congratulations! Based on this information, I guess you are relatively wealthy. How you love to spend your money?
Travel is number one for me. I am lucky enough to have a business that can be operated from anywhere in the world (as long as there is an internet connection). Over the last 3 years, I have been limited with the distances I can travel, but will be venturing further afield soon.

You have a famous namesake. Andrew Johnson (December 29, 1808 – July 31, 1875) was the 17th President of the United States, serving from 1865 to 1869. The name parents select for their child has a strong effect upon their life. If you speak to people, how often it is mentioned? How your name has affected your life?
My name is very common and also has a surname that can be spelled in 3 different ways. I don’t have a middle name, so that keeps it simple. I’m fortunate enough that if someone googles my name, I’m in the top 3 results. 🙂

What would you like to be doing five years from now? What are your long-term goals – how are you preparing yourself to achieve them?
I would like to be doing exactly what I’m doing at the moment, but perhaps in a sunnier and warmer climate. I’m lucky that I have a long list of topics that can be covered in new recordings and will be working towards new ways of delivering them to customers.

What are the most important rewards you expect in your career? What motivates you?
I am motivated by the positive reactions that the apps have been getting. I get many emails, tweets and Facebook messages letting me know how people are sleeping better, overcoming obstacles, becoming more positive and many other things. This is what encourages me to continue recording.

Who is your role model and why?
Elkhart Tolle. He is a genuine spiritual messenger and is teaching people to live more in the moment.

What was the best advice you’ve been given?
Very early in my career, a lecturer told me to volunteer my services to people in need. I ended up working at a Cancer Support Service, doing one to one sessions and group relaxation sessions. This taught me more in 2 years that I could ever have learned seeing paying clients.

What do you do in your spare time? What are your hobbies?
I love music, travel and reading.

Please name 5 interesting things/facts people don’t know about you…
I have “aphantasia” which means I don’t see pictures or images in my “mind’s eye”. This can cause all sorts of issues until you recognise it and put coping skills into place.

I was taught meditation at the age of 16 by a karate teacher. This changed the direction of my life I am a student of “A Course in Miracles”.

I have still to finish the book and I’ve been working my way through it since 1993

have seen quite a few “celebrities” for one to one sessions, but as I’m bound by client confidentiality, I can never tell anyone.

I am colour blind.
