About me

I’m Dr Gareth Thomas Chartered Psychologist, Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist, and founder of Adapt Mental Health. I am a solution-focused therapist dedicated to improving the mental health and well-being of individuals young and old and in various settings. I am a disabled veteran and a wheelchair user who was diagnosed with PTSD since being discharged from the military (army). I can empathise with veterans and disabled/able-bodied people as I have lived knowledge and experience. Finally, I am married and have an older son and a grandchild.


My solution-focused approach to therapy is modern and evidence-based. It actively encourages focus on the positive aspects of life.  I am qualified in a range of treatments including solution-focused hypnotherapy, solution-focused brief therapy (talk therapy), and brain-working recursive therapy.  This approach recognises strengths and capabilities and encourages engagement more in social activities and interactions, ultimately improving quality of life.

I live life to the full and so can you.

Initial consultation

I offer an initial 30-minute session so that we can have a chat about your situation and decide which is the best therapy for you. I’ll explain how your brain works so that you understand specific problems and associated feelings, behaviours, or symptoms.

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.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
