In a nutshell
Your Mind is not your brain
but rather, what your brain does.
One of science's greatest ideas about the mind is the Computational Theory of Mind.
The idea is that your mind is made up of loads of little specialised parts and that your beliefs, thoughts and desires are informational computations carried out by these interrelated parts within the circuitry of your brain.
Based on these principles, here's the good news: It is much easier to fix the Mind than it is to fix the Body.
Your visits help you disentangle your thinking.
There is no one-size-fits-all as each session addresses your specific needs.
This is not psychotherapy but a personal, gentle, collaborative correction to the way you think.
Side-effects include improved self-confidence, joyousness and abundant energy.
If you found your way here because you know Tom or know of his work, welcome back.
If you got here through an Internet search, you are very welcome to book a free 15-minute personal chat with Thomas to get an idea of what to expect from your sessions and to pose those questions you'd so like to ask.
Tom is passionate about his work.
He is a teacher, a therapist, an author, has extensive experience and has won multiple international awards and acclaim.
He quickly gets you tapping into your resources, ridding yourself of unwanted problems, accomplishing that which has been difficult for you to achieve, and helping you discover and celebrate optimum mental, spiritual and physical heath.
Thomas co-founded one of South Africa's top software engineering companies and brings many of those powerful reprogramming tools to his work as a hypnotherapist, NLP practitioner and lifestyle coach to create a uniquely fresh and modern method to thinking disentanglement.
Let Tom be your advisor, collaborator and go-to-guy.
Tom is much more than a holistic therapist that offers you insightful vistas into life.
Many see him as a friend, a father-figure, a spiritual mentor and a man of deep compassion and empathy for those struggling to find joy and purpose in life.
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.

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.
PD, Hypnotherapy Client
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 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!
JP, Mom and Wife
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.
HvL, Mechanical Engineer
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.
JF, Fund Raiser
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.
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.
