Dean Learoyd - Hypnotherapist, Addiction Therapist, Life Coach & Counsellor
I am a fully accredited and experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist, Addiction Therapist, Counsellor and Life Coach. A member of the GHR and CNHC professional standards registers.
My route to becoming a Clinical Hypnotherapist stretches back to the early 1990's when I first studied psychology and gained my Diploma (DipPsych). It was through using these skills in my professional life as a Sales Director that I became keen to develop as a Hypnotherapist in order to help people to overcome their problems.
I specialize in Addiction, Anxiety,Compulsion, Gambling addiction, Panic attacks, Phobia,Trauma,Weight loss, Quitting Smoking, and Habit Removal but have a wealth of experience in many other areas. There is no limit to what Hypnotherapy can help with, provided that there is a genuine desire to make positive change.
What drives me is my desire and ability to help people make positive change in their lives, and to do so in a way that is both right for them and long lasting.
I pride myself in getting positive results and, in most cases, results can be achieved in just a few sessions. I have a friendly, professional approach and work hard on establishing positive rapport with my clients. This is the key to effective treatment and trust plays a very important part. Hypnosis works with the subconscious mind and enables positive reprogramming through professional hypnotic induction and positive suggestion techniques. In most cases clients will see immediate results and each session is tailored completely to the intrinsic needs of the client. For more entrenched conditions a detailed treatment plan can be discussed.

We saw 2 counsellors before Dean with no impact at all. then we try Positive Healing on the recommendation of a friend and my son really opened up. After just 3 sessions I have my boy back and his life is getting better! Thank you Dean!! Jane C"
"I contacted Dean because I felt I had no self worth, and I didn't like how I looked. I had no motivation and very low self esteem. I also struggled accepting that I am gay, even though I know that's who I am. I saw Dean and after my first session I felt really great, I then went on Holiday and even took my T-shirt off! I couldn't believe it! Every year before that I would just lay with my top on, but not now! I'm no longer embarrassed about my body.After my holiday I had two more sessions, I got motivated to sit my Prince 2 Exam and passed!! I am still seeing positive changes in myself every day. Thank you Dean! - Danny G"

Dean's approach is so positive and supportive and after finishing treatment I feel like a different person! :) would highly recommend! - Kirsty F"

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.
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.
Accredited register membership

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.
