Training, qualifications & experience
Current status: Solution Focused Hypnotherapist
In 2015, I decided to reignite his career in Health and Social Care, investigating careers in talking therapies. I decided to have a career which related to and reflected his professional training and experience, and so I decided to train as a Clinical Hypnotherapist.
I am Clinical Hypnotherapist who trained at Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT) in Bristol. The Clifton Practice is one of the pioneering Hypnotherapy Practice in the South West where I have gained a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH). I am Registered Member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) for Hypnotherapy. I am also have professional insurance and an up-to-date enhanced DBS check.
Previous Background: Public Health and Health Promotion within Children's Services
I decided to pursue a career in Human Nutrition 20 years ago as I have always had an interest in food, science and helping people. I decided to train as a Nutritionist and attained three degrees including: BSc Diet & Clinical Nutrition, The Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen; BSc (Hons) Health Sciences (Health Care Option) University of Aberdeen and MSc Public Health Nutrition, Southampton University respectively.
In 2003, I started his first professional role as a Community Health Development Worker (Sure Start, Dover). I then worked within the Health Inequalities Team and Sure Start to ensure the delivery of health promotion interventions and approaches to individuals, families and neighbourhoods. In 2005, I started a new role as Departmental Nutritionist at the Birmingham Community Nutrition & Dietetic Service. This gave him a rewarding opportunity to work on various projects for the department. My role was mainly to develop and manage health projects and evaluations to support nutrition practices.
In 2006, I decided to relocate to Bristol and worked in many administrative roles within the local authorities in Children Services.

Cancellation Policy - If the client miss or cancels an appointment after payment of a session then the client is entitled to re-book another session free of charge.

Testimonials from clients
If you want to know how successful my sessions are, don’t just take my word for it! Please read my anonymous reviews below which give real accounts of each client’s experience’s. The following reviews are from my clients themselves:
“Help reduce Anxiety”
“Daniel is an inspiration to all of his clients. When he talks to you in sessions you get a real sense he’s overcome some real personal struggles in his own life. He uses these experiences to help you create a positive outlook. I walk away from every session with a much clearer head and feeling much more relaxed. I found it interesting to learn about how the mind works. How a greater knowledge of this has helped me relax my mind and body. If you’re suffering with Anxiety, Depression, Panic attacks, OCD or Irrational Phobias Daniel is the guy for you. Can’t thank Daniel enough for his time and patience in helping me overcome my own personal issues. I’m still working on them but when I look back 6 months I’ve come such a long way.”
“Help with Insomnia”
“I arranged to meet with Daniel due to problems that I was having with insomnia related to anxiety over beginning a new job. We met and had a very thorough initial consultation in which Daniel explained Solution Focused Hypnotherapy in a very accessible way. He also asked me some questions about myself and the issue that I wanted help with. I only ended up having one session after this, which was spent undertaking guided relaxation. Daniel also gave me a CD of music and guided relaxation which I listened to before going to bed. I found the CD in particular to be very helpful and feel that it certainly helped me get to sleep more easily and stay asleep for longer. Overall, I found Daniel to be friendly, approachable and professional and would definitely recommend his service to anyone considering hypnotherapy”
“Help with low self-esteem”
“I went to Daniel for help as I have had low self esteem for a long time. Daniel was immensely understanding and reassuring. In the initial consultation he explained the principal of ‘Solution Focused Hypnotherapy’ to me. He also ensured that I understood how it would work. I was given a relaxation CD to take home and listen to at bedtime. I found this so relaxing and fell sleep to it most nights (allowing my subconscious mind to absorb it’s message). The five sessions I had after this were very rewarding. We would recap on the theory behind the therapy and talk about the positive aspects of my week.
Daniel would then play the relaxing music and tell me a ‘story’ whilst putting me in a trance (in other words I fell asleep). Again my subconscious mind was absorbing these positive affirmations. I always felt very good after each session and definitely felt much more confident. I have now finished the sessions and still listen to the CD at bedtime to reinforce the good work that Daniel has done. Through his work and therapy sessions I have become a far more confident person then I was before the sessions started back in January. I highly recommend Daniel.”
“Help with giving up smoking”
“I had been attempting and failing to stop smoking over and over again for years. Then a friend suggested I try solution focused hypnotherapy. After visiting Daniel Bateman at his practice in Clifton Village, I am overjoyed to be able to say that I am cured. Just like that! Like I’d never been a smoker, the craving – IT’S GONE! Thank You Daniel.
