Xander Samson says she has been hypnotized at her workplace to make her go through unwanted gastric disturbances and flatulence. She credited the paranormal phenomena that she has been experiencing as due to the poor heating and ventilation at the hospital unit she worked at. She even told the tribunal she was being ‘possessed’, her private parts were being ‘attacked’, and she was ‘gaslighted through the use of low-frequency soundwaves’.

Xander Samson, an NHS nurse has failed to sue the NHS after claiming she was being secretly hypnotized at work - to force her to uncontrollably break wind.

The nurse claimed that she was suffering from unwanted 'gastrointestinal disturbances' and flatulence during her work.

She also told the tribunal heard that she was 'being possessed' and her private parts were being ‘attacked’, and she was ‘gaslighted through the use of low-frequency soundwaves’.

In her case, she blamed the paranormal experiences she was having on the poor heating and ventilation at the hospital unit she worked at.

Reportedly, the staff nurse at Ealing Hospital London actually self-diagnosed herself as being the target of ‘ideomotor phenomenon’ - a little-known hypnotic concept that is said to make people make movements unconsciously.

In her mail sent to work in April 2019, the Acute Medical Unit nurse described the situation as 'extremely bothersome.'

Her sent-out mail at work eventually led her heads to be concerned about her mental health and they immediately referred her to an occupational health team.

Miss Samson said: “I would like to report an observed pattern of likely inappropriate use of hypnosis/ideomotor phenomenon in my NHS workplace.

“In the last three months that I have worked in the department, I have experienced odd symptoms which I think is likely related to the above phenomenon.

“I am a healthy individual and does not have any past medical history but recently I have had various symptoms including headaches, breathing difficulty (a feeling of getting choked), and gastrointestinal disturbance (borborygmus, spasms, flatulence).

“This also includes having slurs similar to that of being possessed (as in a paranormal phenomenon). I have also noticed this in some of my patients and colleagues at work.

“It becomes extremely bothersome and a distraction at work. It also involves a feeling of being attacked in various parts of the body including that of one’s private part, which I feel is very inappropriate.

“I understand that control is achieved in this phenomenon with an altered state of consciousness and the poorly controlled thermoregulation (heating) and inadequate ventilation (the ward is located in the basement of the hospital) in the area is set up for this purpose.

“I have also noticed that I am being subjected to significant stress/anxiety, which I think makes the subject control easier in this process.

“This is in the form of excessive scrutiny - I am presented with excessive complaints from colleagues which are mostly trivial and made a subject of a performance management programme, which is not necessary.

“The frequent mention of the names of my acquaintances by my colleagues is also another way of causing anxiety (apart from this being an example of stalking behaviour) or possibly a ‘suggestion’.

“They are also using gaslighting through the use of low frequency soundwaves. Recently, I have seen a van in the parking lot near the area where I work that carries what appears to be audio equipment.”

She even claimed that she suffered similar hypnotic symptoms at her home and even wrote to The National Hypnotherapy Society in a bid to back up her claims.

Miss Samson also told her head that she was experiencing bizarre experiences and that included comments from the TV and radio. Hearing this, her boss referred her to occupational health.

Bosses at London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust were concerned about her mental health and repeatedly sought professional help.

As a matter of fact, three different doctors observed Miss Samson and two of the doctors deemed her unfit for work. The Trust also tried to get Miss Samson to see a psychiatrist.

But Miss Samson remained adamant that she was not mentally ill and refused to cooperate to see a psychiatrist, saying that she was being 'experimented on.'

She said she was ‘electromagnetic radiation-sensitive and dismissed one diagnosis of psychosis as ‘incorrect’.

After her continuous refusal to cooperate with psychiatric help, the nurse was eventually dismissed from her job in December 2019 with the Trust saying ‘there was no other option’ than dismissal.

Miss  Samson then tried to sue the Trust for unfair dismissal and disability discrimination but lost her case at Watford Employment Tribunal Centre.

Employment Judge Oliver Hyams also admitted the tribunal ‘had no idea what ideomotor phenomenon’ and also that the tribunal did not discriminate against Miss Samson or sacked her unfairly.

Judge Hyams said her heads ‘did what they did purely because of what they perceived to be impairments to her mental health exhibited by her various statements’.
