About me

FREE INFORMATION PACK, email to receive. Low cost now available in Edinburgh!

Professional Hypnotherapist with qualifications from SQA approved awarding bodies and adhering to  NOS National Occupational Standards. CNHC Registered hypnotherapist.Edinburgh, Falkirk, Stirling and Glasgow clinics.

CNHC registered hypnotherapist. CNHC Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council is the complementary health regulator set up with Government funding. It is also a PSA (Professional Standards Authority) approved Accredited Register. Also a FHT registered therapist and registered on their AR scheme under hypnotherapy.

The PSA is an independent body, accountable to Parliament. The PSA was asked by the Government to set up the AR scheme in 2012, to offer enhanced protection for anyone seeking health and social care services that are not statutorily regulated.’ PSA quote

PLEASE EMAIL ME RATHER THAN PHONE SINCE I AM FREQUENTLY IN SESSION OR TRAVELLING BETWEEN CLINICS. I OFFER A FREE EMAIL DISCUSSION OF YOUR NEEDS. If you phone the mainline number, please clearly state Scotlandtherapy - Stuart Morgan-Ayrs, and they will take a note of your email address for me to send information to.


Established in 1993 and providing both general hypnotherapy and related therapies, and specific support for anger management, bipolar & depression management, dyslexia support, phobia assistance and motivational support. Trained in psychoanalysis and clinical hypnotherapy by ASM (diploma recognised by the Society of Stress Managers), a CNHC accreditation route requiring over 200 client cases (over 1,000 hours) of supervised practice for qualification, assessed internally and via NVQ portfolio. ASM training specialises in the treatment and management of Stress, psychosomatic and anxiety related conditions.

After full accreditation with ASM (recognised by SSM, a CNHC PSA AR and voluntary regulator route), I also completed the accreditation process of the National Association of Counsellors Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists, another CNHC route, and former UKCP body.

I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural style Analysis and I have completed post qualification competency additional training in CBASP, a style designed specifically for the treatment of acute and severe depression, and related conditions like bipolar. If you search Wikipedia for CBASP, you can read about it and see reference to peer reviewed studies with excellent success rates. As a Cognitive behavioural psychological therapy it also meets NICE recommendations for appropriate treatment of numerous mental health conditions, although Cognitive Behavioural Analysis is more in depth that typical Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I have already completed post qualification clinical training in CBASP and Mindfulness.

Also holds qualifications from QCA approved awarding bodies in Coaching, NLP, Psychotherapy, Counselling and other related therapies. Fully insured.

I am dedicated to ongoing post qualification study. I have a MSc Psychology and a BA (Hons) Open degree specializing in social policy, psychology and politics. I am awaiting my result for a BA in Philosophy and psychological studies (comparing models of thinking) and have a BSc (Hons) in a field related to HRM and modelling.

I have professional, vocational, academic and non-traditional qualifications and awards and full professional registrations and insurance, including CNHC registration in the hypnotherapy category. The CNHC is the official voluntary regulator in the UK for hypnotherapy and an AR. I am also registered with the FHT in house AR scheme.

Medical conditions are only addressed with the ongoing supervision of a medical professional such as a GP. Conditions such as IBS can be addressed in line with NICE guidelines as long as the client has checked with their GP first. Mental health conditions are addressed in the context of psychotherapy, in line with NICE recommendations including the use of CBT based psychological therapies. We do not "treat", "diagnose" or claim to "cure" ANY medical or mental health conditions unless the condition is recommended for such treatment by NICE or appropriate peer reviewed research. Where the GP is happy for us to do so, we may use hypnotherapy or appropriate psychological therapies to assist in the management of the client's condition, as long as they remain under the supervision of a medical professional. Therefore we only address such conditions where deemed appropriate by NICE, as accepted psychotherapy or counselling assistance, or where a medical professional has stated a professional medical opinion that it is appropriate to do so.

Stuart is an Anxiety UK registered therapist, and Anxiety UK may subside qualifying clients on low income. Some contribution by the client is usually expected.

Stuart has trained in competency in CBASP and is working towards full accreditation. CBASP is Cognitive Behavioural Analysis System of Psychotherapy. Stuart is already trained and qualified in cognitive behavioural analysis and psychoanalysis, but CBASP is a further method used for severe long term depression. CBASP techniques like Situational Analysis are also very useful in anger management.

CBASP contains systems including IPT (interpersonal therapy), SO (significant other analysis) and SA (Significant event Analysis).

I am also trained in the clinical application of Mindfulness, both passive (such as meditation) and active (analysis based).

By combining NICE recommended and well researched methods as the core of my work I am able to provide effective psychological treatments, while still being flexible with the additional therapy modalities used. Therefore anxiety, depression, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, personality disorders and other mental health issues are addressed using approved NICE methods and well researched methods as core approaches.

Further information

Specialist in Cognitive Behavioural Analysis and Therapy, anger management, stress and anxiety management, bipolar & depression management, holistic therapy, dyslexia management and mood disorders. Includes use of CBASP specialised analysis, and Mindfulness for depression.

I DO NOT ASSIST IN STOP SMOKING CASES. I work with more serious cases.

General hypnotherapy and solution focused therapy also available.

My service is integrated, using hypnotherapy, self hypnosis tuition and hypno analysis alongside psychotherapy, counselling, transpersonal psychology and life coaching. I also use mindfulness, meditation, Naikan, Morita and Satori from eastern models of psychology where appropriate.


Author of 12 externally accredited Practitioner Training courses (2007-2015) that led to award certificates from NCFE at levels 4 and 5, including NLP Practitioner level 4, Anger Management level 5, Stress management level 4, CBT level 5, Life coaching level 4.

Published journal writer, professional book chapter author and peer reviewer.


Areas we actively work in following over 22 years of combined professional experience by our therapists (est 1993) include: anxiety, anxiety disorders, anger management, passive aggression, social anxiety, workplace anger management, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), coping with disabilities or learning difficulties, bereavement, relationship issues, couples counselling, depression, addictions, anxiety, abuse, low self esteem, eating disorders, sexual issues (including gay, bi and non-traditional), low self confidence, personality disorders, stress, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), work related issues, sexuality, trauma, phobias, post natal depression, termination / abortion / miscarriage trauma, affairs and betrayals, jealousy, separation, divorce, self harm, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, ME, or stress, bullying, bipolar disorder, oppositional and defiant disorders, stress of cancer diagnosis and treatment, panic disorder, gambling and other behavioral addictions, borderline personality disorder, gender identity, sexual identity, physical abuse, mental abuse, sexual abuse, domestic violence, manic depression, weight management (including obesity), tourettes and other speech related issues, stress of debt management.

Historically hypnotherapy has always been a form of psychotherapy, and was influential in the development of psychoanalysis. It was also present in psychology methods dating back to 4500 BCE in ancient Chinese medicine. It is therefore only natural to combine hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, counselling, CBT, mindfulness and psychoanalysis. However not all therapists are trained to do this, and some have only hypnotherapy training. This service offers a professional blend of all of these.


Medical conditions are only addressed with the ongoing supervision of a medical professional such as a GP. Conditions such as IBS can be addressed in line with NICE guidelines as long as the client has checked with their GP first. Mental health conditions are addressed in the context of psychotherapy, in line with NICE recommendations including the use of CBT based psychological therapies. We do not "treat", "diagnose" or claim to "cure" ANY medical or mental health conditions. Where the GP is happy for us to do so, we may use hypnotherapy or appropriate psychological therapies to assist in the management of the client's condition, as long as they remain under the supervision of a medical professional. Therefore we only address such conditions where deemed appropriate by NICE, as accepted psychotherapy or counselling assistance, or where a medical professional has stated a professional medical opinion that it is appropriate to do so.

Hypnotherapy, psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, NLP, CBT, Mindfulness and counselling are all combined in each clinic location: Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling and Falkirk. So if you are looking for a registered, qualified and insured hypnotherapist, psychoanalyst, psychotherapist, counsellor or complementary therapist in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling or Falkirk, email us first for a free information pack and no obligation free email chat in confidence.

Please note that Stuart is fully registered and qualified as a senior practitioner to provide Counselling, Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Psychoanalysis and other related therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Analysis, Life Coaching, NLP and complementary therapy.

Stuart is also published in a professional psychology journal, having written articles on the politics of the psychology profession, technical book review, and a regular politics of the profession "diary.
