Mind Align Hypnotherapy - John Preston Dip Hyp, GQHP, GHR REG, DIP NLP, CNHC REG
Based in Clay Cross and covering East Midlands and Chesterfield areas I offer a solution based therapy to help you move forward and to achieve realistic goals.
Many people don't know what to expect when thinking about going for therapy. Whether it be Hypnotherapy or Trauma Therapy you can be assured there really is nothing to worry about. I create a warm friendly atmosphere and everything we do is of a relaxed nature. Professional and informal at the same time, we'll laugh and maybe shed a tear or two but you'll be in good hands to guide you through your emotions.
Taking advantage of own life experiences I can offer help with grief, stress, anxiety, relationships, smoking cessation and weight management.
Rewind Trauma Therapy Practitioner:
Accredited with the International Association for Rewind Trauma Therapy.
The Rewind offers a way of permanently stopping the involuntary recall by filing the traumatic event so it comes under control. Voluntary recall remains.
The Rewind is different from other imaginal exposure therapies because no details are disclosed to the therapist, hence the treatment is known as "closure without disclosure"
The benefits of non disclosure include:
- Minimising the risk of the client being re-traumatised.
- There is no fear of disclosing sensitive information e.g. In the case of servicemen, for example, about deployment.
- For survivors of rape and sexual abuse the benefit of not having to disclose details of the event to a stranger is self-evident.
- Minimising the risk to the therapist of developing compassion fatigue, particularly for those therapists involved with heavy workloads.
Other areas of hypnotherapy covered:
- Fears & Phobias
- Panic Attacks

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.
Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
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.
Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

The benefit is that you get to meet me online, see if you like me, get to experience some hypnosis, and ask any questions you might have as well as alleviate any doubts. I can then advise how many sessions you are likely to require.
