Stuart Cale - PGCert, ADHP(NC), FNSHPM, UKCP(Accred)
Hello, I'm Stuart, and I'm a fully qualified and registered CNHC Hypnotherapist, UKCP accredited Psychotherapist and BUPA, Aviva Health, WPA and VitalityHealth approved provider as well as a clinical supervisor and educator. I see clients privately both at my consulting rooms in Bolton and Manchester, and at their homes by appointment. Appointment times include evenings and weekends, contact me by telephone or email to secure your appointment.
I specialise particularly in working with self-esteem, anxiety and stress, addictions, weight-loss, quit smoking clients and alcohol abuse, but have the necessary qualifications and experience to deal with a wide range of emotional, psychological and behavioural issues.We will work together in the therapy sessions, and sometimes use recordings and homework to help you to continue to progress between the sessions. If you wish to see more, then please click here http://talking-cure.co.uk/
My work is integrative, forward thinking and solution-focused, collaborating with you to make quick and lasting change and find your peace. My aim is to help you reach the place you want to be, and achieve your goals as easily as possible. I am UKCP and CNHC accredited, an Anxiety UK approved therapist, and I adhere to the UKCP code of ethical conduct.
It is important to check the level of qualification and accreditation of any potential therapist, and below you can see my details, accreditation, affiliations and awards listed in full. I believe that accreditation with the UK Council for Psychotherapy is the pinnacle for therapists. The training that is necessary for admission as a full clinical member is a minimum of 4 years at Master's Degree Level.
By choosing me, you have access to not only a Hypnotherapist, but also to the benefit of over six years of academic training in Psychotherapy to ensure that you are in safe hands. For many clients, hypnotherapy is all that is required, but psychotherapy allows deeper exploration of issues or problems if necessary, which enables a greater understanding of emotional and behavioural patterns. This helps to create a healthier, more balanced perspective and effect positive change.
