Kevin Porter Dip Hyp GQHP, Master NLP
26 Mountbatten Way
Welcome to my profile. You have taken the first step on your journey for positive change and to be in control of the life you desire.
I became interested in Hypnotherapy and NLP through many years of coaching and supporting others in business and life to make changes for themselves; and also through the varied life experiences including becoming a Royal Navy Veteran at 18 and other changes made throughout my life.
How can I help?
As a Hypnotherapist, I work collaboratively with you to address any current problems you are facing and together we may also work through any unresolved difficulties from the past. This in turn will enable you to achieve a greater sense of freedom, well-being and hope for the future. I will also draw upon a range of other different therapy models including Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Neuro Liguistic Programming (NLP) depending on your individual needs. In this way you can hope to gain the most from therapy and achieve real results that stay with you.

I'm a Royal Navy Veteran who experienced war in the Falkland Islands at just 18. I have experience of managing and working with PTSD. Whilst studying for my NLP Master Practitioner coach, I experienced some amazing hypnotherapy & tools from the NLP toolbox, enabling significant shifts and allowing me to move forward in life. This gave me the passion to achieve my Hypnotherapy Diploma which opened my eyes to an even wider range of techniques with which I can work with you to help you change your life.
I have recently published FEARLESS - The Diary of an 18 Year Old at War in The Falklands which is my original diary and the effects of war. Cop and paste this link for details

What my clients say:
Hi Kevin - Fears & Phobias - Enclosed spaces, flying
Just thought I would let you know, we went up to London on Friday so that I could see if I could manage to get on the tube. Well I did! We did a couple of stops to see if that was OK, then travelled out to Notting Hill Gate and back. It was a great sense of achievement I can tell you - after 30 years of avoidance.
So I just wanted to thank you for all your help and support. I don't think I would have got there without you.
Next it's the plane - then look out world, here I come!
I must say I am really chuffed. So is John - he was like a kid at Christmas in London, knowing that we can get further afield now, and go to places he has wanted to go for years.
It was a pleasure working with you.
Following a couple of unsuccessful job interviews, my confidence was knocked and I was feeling increasingly stressed and anxious about the whole process. My nerves were getting in the way of being able to present myself as I wanted to. Kevin was recommended to me and I had one session with him prior to a recent interview. I’m not sure how it worked but I certainly left him feeling more positive and optimistic about the interview I had the following week. I actually enjoyed the interview process when it arrived and felt in control and confident. I was pleased to find I was also successful. The session with Kevin was time and money well spent - highly recommended.
I injured my back 15 months ago and have suffered severe back and leg pain since then. I also became very depressed. Despite receiving various forms of hospital treatment including two back operations this year I was still in pain and could not walk properly until I started some hypnotherapy sessions with Kevin.
From day one I noticed an immediate improvement and started to walk short distances using a walking stick before the pain started. After several sessions I have become so much more mobile and able to walk longer distances unaided.
I now feel much better in myself and fully motivated in in my attempt to achieve a full recovery. My family and friends have also commented on how much better I look in myself.
Thank you so much Kevin.
I have benefited from Kevin's excellent Transformational Hypnotherapy. I am more than happy to recommend him.
I have been working with Kevin for the last few weeks on a weight loss programme. I have shed 7 pounds in three weeks and can see and feel the difference already. I honestly haven't felt hungry but am making more balanced and healthier choices. I don't feel the need to deprive myself of the occasional treat, nothing is off limits. I feel much more in control. If your serious about wanting to shed weight and make a change for the better I can recommend Kevin to help you achieve your goals.
