About me

Hi, How are you today?

My name is Ed Christmas. I've been working for many years now on becoming a better therapist and human - to be able to turn my attention to those that choose to seek support and find ways to collaborate on improving their lives. 

Due to the variety of training and experiences I've had, I consider myself an integrative hypnotherapist. I therefore combine many of the skills and approaches I have learnt along the years to help my clients to the best of my ability. I gained some of these from integrative counselling training, some from Hypno-CBT training, some from working in care, others from travel and experience of many different people and cultures.

This means that we will be able to discuss what works for you, and find many ways to approach problems,  and explore and develop solutions together.

The name of my service is ByOsmosis Therapies because of my belief that change comes from interaction - that through exchange we transform ourselves too.

By engaging in the process of change together, we can find ways to help you address the problems that you face. Nothing is insurmountable, and no-one loses from asking for help from the right people. I hope that you can open yourself to that process, and that you might choose me to be the one to help you towards your goals. Just remember that the fear of change is always worse than the reality. Change brings Choice, and choice gives you power - it gives you the agency to decide.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Until then, all the best,
