Thomas McGowan @ Beacon Hope Therapy (Addiction Specialist)
Hello, my name is Thomas McGowan, Owner/Hypnotherapist of Beacon Hope Therapy. I am located in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. I specialise in all forms of addictions and weight control. I am passionate about helping people achieve the life that they desire and deserve.
Alcohol, substances, gambling, shopping, I am an addict in recovery myself. I fully understand how addiction affects lives, the behaviours, the thoughts. I work with you to help stop the active addiction, but I also work with you to understand and deal with the underlying issues causing you to be addicted to any of the numerous possibilities. The root cause of addiction is to make us feel different from who we are and that's what the main focus of the therapy is. I offer support for pre detox or rehab and also post detox or rehab. More details are on my website.
Make Food Your Friend - Weight Control - My personal programme consisting of 4 sessions. Eat the foods you enjoy, and still achieve your desired size and shape. It will change your relationship with food forever. I run these as individual, couples/pairs and groups sessions.
Smoking Cessation - Quit in 1 session, and if you fail within four weeks, I offer you a second session with No Charge.
I do treat other conditions, issues also. Please do get in touch to discuss.
I pride myself on the fact that we are a partnership, we work together to achieve the outcomes that you desire. I treat you and your symptoms and make each session personalised to you, even in the couple/pairs and groups I will where possible include as much personalised therapy for each person as possible.
Skype and other video messaging platforms available.

Hypnosis works by connecting with the subconscious mind, and it is the subconscious that control every cell, organ, muscle, though, feeling, and emotion. It controls everything about us, so therefor hypnotherapy will be able to deal what ever your symptoms/issues may be.
