Aristocrat was sexually assaulted whilst being hypnotized to help conquer a fear of flying, court hears 

She said she told a friend and her husband but did not know whether to report it at the time, and was approached by the police about the alleged incident several years later.

Questioned by Rosemary Scott, Walsh’s solicitor, she denied making up the incident, saying: “Do you think in my professional and personal life I would jeopardise my reputation by lying to the court?”

She said she first had hypnotherapy to tackle her fear of flying in a session on “a big leather sofa” at Walsh’s home and office in Blairgowrie, Perthshire.

She said that when she came round he was “slightly odd”, adding: “I was very flushed and he made some comment that it looked like I’d had an orgasm. It felt very odd but I laughed it off. I found the whole thing very embarrassing.”

The trial previously heard from an international property agent that the “powerful and charismatic” hypnotist sexually assaulted her while she was a pupil at a private school in Perthshire.

The 28-year-old woman flew in from the Middle East to give evidence in the trial of the married 70-year-old.

She said she was groped by him at his practice more than a decade ago at the age of 14, when she was a disturbed and “attention seeking” teenager.
