About Costa


Costa Lambrias is one of the UK’s leading hypnotherapists and self-development coaches and has helped thousands of clients to enjoy a better quality of life over the last 28 years. He was given the accolade by The Independent on Sunday of being one of the top 10 hypnotherapists in the UK.


Costa’s passion in life is self-esteem. His belief that everyone has a right to be happy underpins his professional ethos and his empathic approach to his clients.

Costa’s experience and reputation in hypnotherapy have gained him recognition in the UK and abroad. Costa has appeared on national and local TV and radio, and in newspapers and magazines. His expertise and enthusiasm for his subject matter have meant he is much in demand as a post-graduate tutor and as a presenter at UK and international conferences.

In 1997 Costa co-founded the UK’s Hypnotherapy Association which upholds the professional standards of hypnotherapists in the UK. He sits on its current board. 

Costa is on the Government-recognised Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) register. This means he is on the approved list of qualified hypnotherapists that the NHS recommends all GPs use.

As the Principal of the Academy of Holistic Hypnotherapy, Costa has trained hundreds of people to become hypnotherapists over the last 18 years.

Costa is the author of Human Doing & Human Being, published in 2014. The book aims to help improve people’s self-esteem and enable them to create a better quality of life for themselves, both practically and spiritually.
