Sebastian T. Eastwood-Bloom BA(Hons) DipHyp MIAPH
The Practice Rooms
24 Regent Street
Hi there, I'm Sebastian Eastwood and I'm a professional psychotherapist and hypnotherapist. I specialise in both clinical and analytical hypnotherapy as well as applied positive psychology and coherence therapy. Each of these approaches provide excellent tools to help you completely overcome or resolve your symptoms in a relatively short space of time. I understand that it often takes courage to seek help, but you can rest assured that I make every effort to make your experience a comfortable one.
In my career so far I've had the pleasure of working with a wide range of people from professional sports men and women, professional actors and musicians, CEO's and company directors, and everyone else in between! I'm pleased to say that I'm regularly consulted by people from around the world from such places as Brazil, California, Latvia, Italy, and Thailand, both over Skype and here at my clinic in Bath. I've helped people successfully resolve a wide range of issues from addictions, to weight loss, anxiety, depression, sexual problems, low self-esteem and even more exotic conditions like imposter syndrome, alexithymia, and dysphagia. No matter what the issue, I genuinely enjoy working with people to help them overcome their private problems.
One thing I've learned over the years is that symptoms and problems aren't in anyway a reflection on you as a person, they are simply a by-product of your unique life experiences. Symptoms often seem utterly senseless and beyond your control but allow me to reassure you that everybody can overcome their symptoms and problems when the right approach is used. I very much look forward to meeting you and hearing your story.
Training, qualifications & experience
After completing my Bachelors degree I qualified in Analytical and Clinical Hypnotherapy in 2010 from the Internal Association of Pure Hypnoanalysts. Following on from that I trained in Applied Positive Psychology and Cognitive Therapy. I've also undertaken further training with the International Association of Evidence Based Psychotherapy, the American Psychological Association, and the Coherence Therapy Institute, where I trained in the the therapeutic application of the cutting edge neuroscience of memory reconsolidation.
Having had the privilege of working with some of the worlds top therapists including Rob Kelly, author of The Thrive Programme, Robin Ticic, co-author of Unlocking The Emotional Brain, Neil French, author of Successful Hypnotherapy, and Andrew T. Austin, author of The Rainbow Machine, I'm currently developing my own system of psychotherapy based on the most up-to-date research we have on neurobiology.

Some Testimonials From Happy Clients:
"The decision I made to work on my issues with Seb is perhaps the best and most important decision that I've made in my life to date. That might sound dramatic but after completing my therapy journey with him, I find that I am a very different, more focused, more honest and more positive version of myself. I am truly proud of what I have achieved and I couldn't have done it without Seb. I would absolutely recommend Seb to anyone who wants to deal with any issue that they have - he is warm, engaging, enthusiastic, genuine and above all, very easy to confide in. I will never look back and the future is bright." L.L.T.
"I started seeing Seb after 3 psychologists had tried and failed to help me solve out where I was going wrong in my head. I had given up with the thought of someone being able to help me but my sister was the one who refused to give up for me and contacted Seb, she set the consultation up with him which I appreciated and when we met for the first time he listened to what I had to say and then proceeded to tell me what he thought would be the best appraoch for me. I felt comfortable with him right from session 1 which was not the case with the previous psychologist I had seen. After every session I felt very thankful that my sister set up the consultation because of how I came out the meetings feeling a feeling I hadn’t had in years! I could not recommend Seb enough, because I’m confident he has changed my life. Thanks again, Seb." Anon.
"I originally booked an appointment with Seb to help me deal with exam stress and the affect it was having on my M.E. I have now passed all my exams and no longer have any symptoms of M.E. Seb has a welcoming, homely office and a cracking sense of humour which helped me to instantly feel at ease. He used a range of techniques and obviously put a lot of planning and thought into each session. I really enjoyed working with Seb and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for someone to help. Having now completed my sessions I feel like a stronger version of my old self. I am able to apply the things I learned to everything that I come across. Life is a whole lot nicer". L.M.
"It's hard to accurately describe just how valuable Seb's input into my life has been. I arrived at his door hoping for some kind of miracle, but assuming nothing would actually change. In fact, in only 6 weeks I'm excited by life again and absolutely wouldn't have achieved that without Seb's help. His mixture of science fact, interesting insights, straight talking and down to earth style was exactly right, after months of wading through self-help books and trying to cope alone he managed very quickly and easily to help me understand my predicament and provided the tools for fixing it. Although I'm really happy to be moving on, I'll genuinely miss our sessions! I chose Seb after a random stab at google and if you've got as far as his website I strongly suggest booking a consultation, it really will be the best thing you've done for yourself. I know all of these things sound trite, but he really is a fantastic therapist who exceeded all my expectations and demolished all my preconceived notions of how awful therapy would be!" J.M.
