For me, however, the real story is the people I work with and the changes they achieve.

I graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Psychology in 1993 and my interest in therapy and hypnosis dates from this period.

I was a Lecturer in Psychology, teaching at further and higher education levels. During this time I also further developed my knowledge of hypnotherapy.

I went on to a role within the National Probation Service and NHS, co-ordinating, and as lead practitioner, within a tight knit team on an innovative project. During this time, I also trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Counselling, utilising therapeutic interventions within treatment programmes with clients as part of the project’s work, under clinical supervision within the NHS.

Throughout this period I developed my therapeutic skills, training and application. The event which led me to focus solely on the clinical practice of hypnotherapy was when I used hypnotherapy to assist my wife leading up to and during the birth of our son. This was a pivotal event in many ways, one of which was a strong belief in the value and scope of hypnotherapy and I decided to further my training and to commit to principal and core practice of Clinical Hypnotherapy.

I established Positive Change Hypnotherapy and currently practice as an qualified and registered Clinical Hypnotherapist in the Greater Manchester and Lancashire areas, based in Bolton. This is my sole focus and occupation. Within Positive Change Hypnotherapy, I provide a professional bespoke Clinical Hypnotherapy service.

I continually build on my experience of therapy and qualifications by engaging in continuing professional development to ensure my practice is always well informed and up-to-date. I can work with you to help you achieve effective and lasting positive change and to reach your goals.
