If you are motivated to make a change to your life I can help. I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Hypnosis to help you understand your issue and learn how to overcome it. Engage your inner drives and defeat the things that might derail you.
I've been told my approach is relaxed, friendly and warm. I work with you to understand your issue and to show you methods of managing it. I then teach you how to self-hypnotise so you can continue to use the techniques and become more resourceful.
Research tells us that your chance of success is directly related to how much you want to change, how confident you are in the approach and how much trust there is. I aim to earn that trust. But of course, if we haven't met yet, how will you know?
Take a look at my video, either here or on my website. On my website there are free hypnotherapy recordings you can play, which will give you an idea of what hypnosis is like, and whether you like the sound of my voice!
I look forward to hearing from you!
During the Coronavirus Covid-19 response I am no longer offering face-to-face sessions but instead am offering sessions via Skype or Zoom video. These are very effective so long as you have a good broadband connection and some privacy in your home.
Training, qualifications & experience
I’ve been working as a corporate trainer, coach and hypnotist using Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) for over 25 years. I first came across hypnosis when I was taught how to use it to help my wife for the birth of our son. I’m a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist, having trained at the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy.
I am qualified in NLP at a Master Practitioner level, have a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy, and a Diploma in Stress Management and Resilience Building. I'm a believer in continual education and enjoy learning new things.
Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
