Dean Learoyd - CH Dhyp, Dip Psych
01302 710171 / 07845 291437
I am a fully qualified, accredited and experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist, Counsellor and Life Coach.
My route to becoming a Hypnotherapist stretches back to the early 1990's when I first studied psychology and gained my Diploma (DipPsych). It was through using these skills in my professional life as a Sales Director that I became keen to develop as a Hypnotherapist in order to help people to overcome their problems.
I specialise in Anxiety, Addiction, Fear, Panic attacks, Phobia,Trauma,Weight loss, Quitting Smoking, and Habit removal, but have a great deal of experience in so many other areas. There is no limit to what Hypnotherapy can help with, provided that there is a genuine desire to change.
What drives me is my genuine desire and ability to help people to make positive change in their lives, and to do so in a way that is both right for them and long lasting.
I pride myself in getting positive results and, in most cases, results can be achieved in just one or two sessions. I have a confident, professional approach and work hard on establishing positive rapport with my clients. This is the key to effective treatment and trust plays a very important part. Hypnosis works with the subconscious mind and enables positive reprogramming through professional hypnotic induction and positive suggestion techniques. In most cases clients will see immediate results and each session is tailored completely to the intrinsic needs of the client. For more entrenched conditions a detailed treatment plan can be discussed.
"I contacted Dean because I felt I had no self worth, and I didn't like how I looked. I had no motivation and very low self esteem. I also struggled accepting that I am gay, even though I know that's who I am.
I saw Dean and after my first session I felt really great, I then went on Holiday and even took my T-shirt off! I couldn't believe it! Every year before that I would just lay with my top on, but not now! I'm no longer embarrassed about my body.After my holiday I had two more sessions, I got motivated to sit my Prince2 Exam and passed!! I am still seeing positive changes in myself every day. Thank you Dean! - Danny G"
"Thank you so much Dean, I honestly don't think I could thank you enough, your work sorted me out but it lives on. The skills you have taught me are unforgettable! This year has been the worst and best year of my life and your amazing therapy has enabled me to deal with every situation accordingly. Hope you have a fantastic new year Dean, you deserve it for the fantastic guidance and help you offer to people making this world a better place bit by bit! - Caroline W"
"I went to see Dean seeking help for anxiety and insomnia. From the moment I met him he completely put me at ease and made me feel like getting well again was entirely possible! He spent lots of time learning about me, my life and my background and tailored a plan to fixing my underlying issues. Dean's approach is so positive and supportive and after finishing treatment I feel like a different person! :) would highly recommend! - Kirsty F"
"Having lived my life experiencing regular panic attacks over many years, I approached Dean, on the advice of a friend, with much scepticism and as a last resort. After all my, GP told me that my problem was purely chemical and needed to be controlled with drugs! However, Dean has proved otherwise. His calm, down-to-earth and straight-forward manner put me immediately at ease. He is an incredible listener who pulls no punches. and, like a skilled surgeon, is able to identify and deal with the problem. As a result, I'm well on the way to recovery and, what's more, he has enabled me to restore balance and hope in my life. I have the utmost respect for this man and very highly recommend him!" Paul P
"I went to Dean after finally accepting I needed help.After my free introduction session,in which I was a quivering wreck, I came away feeling positive that I could be helped but still a little doubtful in myself. Over the course of the therapy I started to feel different and alive again. I have just finished my course of therapy and I cannot believe the difference in myself. I suffered from anxiety and depression which beat me to my knees for many years, where I thought I would stay. Dean picked me up, used his fantastic skills, glued me back together and sent me back into the world fighting. For anyone who thinks therapy doesn't work then all I can say is, you haven't met Dean, he is not only fantastic at what he does but he is a lovely bloke.. Thank you for everything! Caroline C"
"Dean has helped me greatly with a phobia which to others may have seemed trivial, but to me caused sleepless nights and a great deal of worry. l can highly recommend him for his care and highly professional manner" - Gill R.
"I was addicted to smoking Cannabis and Tobacco for 30 years and after just two sessions with Dean I am 'smoke free' and my life is improving daily - I can't recommend him highly enough! Craig G"
"I have had the pleasure of working with Dean on a number of occasions as a fellow hypnotherapist. As therapists it is our mission to provide hypnotherapy to the highest of standards; something which Dean is committed to ensuring for each and every one of his clients. If you are seeking help and support through hypnotherapy in the Retford or Bawtry area I would recommend Dean without hesitation, due to his dedication and the attention to detail that he applies to each and every client he works with.Debbie Ison C.H.
