My name is Ian Surman and I am a professionally trained clinical hypnotherapist with a private practise in Hinckley, Leicestershire. I have a friendly, patient, empathic and attentive manner and aim to help you to achieve your goals in a way that acknowledges your individuality, your experiences and the way that you see the world.
I variously use hypno-behavioural; hypno-cognitive behavioural; hypno-analytical; client centred and Eriksonian approaches, in conjunction with direct and indirect suggestions, parts therapies, metaphorical approaches and other relevant techniques, to bring about the positive changes that you seek. Wherever possible, I match techniques to your requirements, preferences and prior experiences.
I received my training in evidence-based hypnotherapy at the highly regarded London College of Clinical Hypnosis, and I am able to draw on over a decade's experience of motivating and bringing out the best in people in educational, therapeutic and social care contexts. I provide professional and effective help with many issues and conditions, specialising in the treatment of anxieties, raising levels of confidence, and helping people to let go of bodily focussed repetitive behaviours such as nail-biting.
If you would like to discuss how I can help you to achieve your goals, you can contact me to arrange a free, face-to-face consultation at my quiet and private therapy room in Hinckley; or if you prefer, you can arrange a free, initial telephone consultation.
I would be delighted to hear from you.
