You've helped me so much by understanding me. SW, Bristol.
I am Chris Morris a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist based in Bristol. I am passionate about bringing out the best in people and have a wealth of experience dealing with problems and finding solutions in a safe and supportive environment. Over the last 30 years I have been an actor, drama teacher, head of year in secondary schools in the Bristol area and continue to be involved in education as a Governor of my local primary school.
I had Hypnotherapy to treat tinnitus at the Clifton Practice in Bristol and when I decided to train I looked no further than the prestigious CPHT program, which is considered to be the gold standard in hypnotherapy training.
Whatever your needs are I can help. I work with a wide range of clients but have a particular interest in helping children/young adults, educationalists, people working in the performing arts industry and parents who have suffered the loss of a child.
Do you have trouble sleeping? Are you more tired when you wake up than when you go to bed? Sometimes we just don’t realise when the pressures of life are getting on top of us until the strain starts to tell. Hypnotherapy can help.
Solution Focused Therapy looks at what you want to achieve, rather than on your problems. This process focuses on the present and future and not on the past. The therapy can be highly effective in relieving the symptoms of anxiety and stress. Focusing on solutions means we do not dwell on problems. Instead we:
acknowledge where you are currently
determine where you want to be
help you to make the necessary changes.
It is also a great way to ‘switch off’ and focus the mind.
I can help you reduce your anxiety and get the real you back.

I have witnessed Chris engage in effective personal sessions which enabled individuals to achieve improved self-esteem, positive self-image and as a result, subsequent improvement in their emotional well-being.
He is an outstanding questioner and combines this with excellent active listening skills, allowing him to tease out the responses from people with ease through his thoughtful and empathetic approach. He has a natural ability to help others reflect which is one of Chris’ key skills ,as he does it in a way that is non-threatening. Overall Chris has amazing skills, confidence and thoughtfulness and it is clear why people trust him and his advice.’

I can’t thank Chris enough for what he’s done for me. I suffered with social anxiety and depression and I saw him 5 times and I am a stronger person now. I’ve recently had something else happen to me and because of what he showed me and taught me to do I couldn’t be stronger through the situation! This works! Highly recommend! JT, Weston-super-Mare
Thanks Christopher...I am grateful because you made me change my attitude towards uncertainty and irrational fears. JLR, Bristol
Thank you for today he is more focused already. I am confident he's going to get through this now. You've definitely had a massive impact on him. I am so grateful! JW, Weston-Super-Mare
Thanks Chris... two [consecutive] eight-hour night’s sleep...wow! TB, Bristol
That was amazing...I feel so relaxed. PW, Bristol
Good news!! Back from the cruise and all went well with no anxiety or panic moments at all. All the excursions went well [and] didn't get to the panic stage as previously. All the travelling where I would normally expect some sort of anxiety went smoothly. We had a lovely holiday and some of that must be accredited to you. JU. Bristol
