The most common reasons clients seek help from me are related to stress, anxiety, depression, anger, relationship, and work-related issues. This might be related financial stress, promotional issues or challenging life, business, and career choices. Often these challenges have their roots in issues of loss, self-esteem, and traumatic events.
Calming both inner and external conflicts are my focuses for you. My mission is resolving the upset that can be caused from anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma – in two words, STRESS MANGEMENT, and I am your life, work, and relationship stress consultant.
Client’s remark, ‘Keith just gets me’, complimenting my warmth and gentleness, yet also value my varied life experiences, breadth of expertise and an understanding of how tough life can sometimes be, meaning I can help my clients build solutions, take careful decisions, and make suitable changes.
Clients who consult me value my combination of senior executive & business experience and psychological insight. They come from different backgrounds, with the majority being self-referred executives, professionals, managers, and business owners. Many others are parents and caring partners, who value my empathetic life experiences and want to lead effective, calm lives.
Which is one of the main things that I do as a therapist and CBT Coach, is help clients make good sense of what is going on, simply explaining why it has such an impact and agreeing with them ways that they can resolve their unhappiness and move forward. This empowers them.
Often, employers engage me to support work-based counselling, anxiety, and stress reduction programs. My clients have included both large, national, and multinational organisations as well as smaller organisations too.
Whilst most clients, value this solution focused approach, which normally takes 5-6 sessions, others want to deepen their healing and understanding further and may seek to explore their ongoing or spiritual needs with me.

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.
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
PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Sleep and Dreaming
Flexible to clients need
The majority of my clients enjoy the one to one approach, but also find to helpful be supported by a friend in the hypnotherapy room; that is a very helpful and useful way to work too. Similarly, many clients enjoy developing new skills by being taught and sharing experiences by attending workshops. This helps them mange their budgets too.
To support this I run a range of different workshops as a general program of being healthy and positive in life and for specific and focused issues. Please check this site for some of the events or email me for a full list.
