Barry has been in the health and fitness industry for over 25 years

He spent the first 7 years working in the local leisure centre, before moving on to a job walking the landings in her majesty’s prisons Knowing that health and fitness was in his blood he specialized as a physical education instructor in the prison service, teaching and educating prisons in health and fitness.

Moving forward to 2013 Barry and Laura (aka the wife) decided to set up their own business called Rock Solid. They both have an absolute passion for helping others achieve their health and fitness goals.

Spending over 25 years in the health and fitness industry Barry has seen all the fads come and go, but one thing that has never changed is peoples minds.  This is the one area that stops people from making the changes they want.

As Barry says: “The mind is the key that unlocks the doors to our freedom. Where the mind goes the body will follow, and the CONTROL system fits  perfectly in to our business.”

"I will admit I was a little dubious about trying hypnotherapy but intrigued as well and was pleasantly surprised by the experience. Barry explained about the technique that he'd be using and quickly put me at my ease. I felt relaxed during the session and I drifted as Barry used the Control System to talk to my subconscious, consequently I can't really remember what was said! I came away from each session feeling positive and with a definite change of behaviour and it has helped me progress on my journey. I would highly recommend Barry as a therapist and would certainly return to him to use this system again."

"I am a long term compulsive over eater and have tried every diet/exercise fad there is, nothing worked long term and I struggled to stick to it. I have completed a course of Hypnosis with Barry and I can honestly say it has changed my life. Food was always the first thing I thought about when I woke and the last thing before I slept, it completely controlled my life, now I have control over the food which is an amazing feeling after all these years. Food isn't constantly on my mind, I have stopped over eating and only eat when I am hungry, I am looking for better and healthier food options now instead of reaching for quick convenient food, I have more energy, have definitely lost weight and I have stopped being so hard on myself and I no longer weigh myself twice a day! Barry has also given me the tools to continue on this path. I can honestly say that it is the best thing I have ever done with regards to my over eating and without a doubt I would 100% recommend Hypnosis to anyone who needs help, it could change your life too!"

"Hi Barry, I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping me with the emotional issues with the food in the 1-2-1 Control Hypnosis sessions.
I have only just realised it in the past few weeks, but I no longer 'feel' any attachment or have emotions connected to food. I used to get excited about going out for a cheat meal, or having a take away I'd get such a rush of excitement at the thought of a dominos! HOW friggin sad was that?! (My partner i think has emotional eating now tho! ) As he dragged us to Harvester, which usually would be a big excitement for me! Thinking about all the carbs i could eat, the garlic bread etc... But I just felt nothing. It wasnt very tasty, and made me feel bloated and sick. I have no desire to eat at these kind of places anymore! And the thought of a dominos is quite repulsive.

Now I am FREE from all of this! I have not thought about food in an emotional way, I no longer eat when I am sad, when i am stressed or when i am bored. I just dont feel anything about food. I just need to make the right choices with food and know that food is there to nourish the body and thats it! Its a science. Not an emotion. So thankyou for your time and your understanding and for your help with this issue, which i was skeptical about eradicating, but now I see how and why and its gone! And actually is was quite simple! Kind Regards."
