David J. Davies Gwynedd Hypnotherapy
Hello, I am a fully qualified, insured and registered Clinical Hypnotherapist with over 15 years experience.
I have an eclectic approach to therapy drawing on a wide range of skills including Clinical Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, EFT, Reiki, Mindfulness and other skills developed over many years as a therapist. This enables me to tailor the therapy to your specific needs.
It is my belief that the aim of therapy is not only to put you back in control of your life as soon as possible, but to also share with you, if you so wish, the skills required in order for you to work effectively on yourself, if similar issues should arise in the future.
Over the last 15 years, I have worked effectively with hundreds of people in both West Wales and North Wales helping them with such issues as, Anxiety, Stress, Panic Attacks, Weight Loss, Quit Smoking, Fears and Phobias and much more. I currently run a private practice in the Caernarfon area seeing clients throughout the Anglesey, Gwynedd and Dwyfor regions.
I am a full member of the BSCH (British Society of Clinical Hypnotherapy)
a Registered member of the GHR (General Hypnotherapy Register)
a Registered member of the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council)

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Society of Clinical Hypnosis
The British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH) is a national professional body whose aim is to promote and assure high standards in the practice of hypnotherapy.
There are various types of membership of BSCH, including associate members, full members, diplomats and fellows.
Registration demands good quality training, ethical practice and adherence to a code of conduct.
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.

Information about health conditions (*)
Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.
