About me

Supporting  You Every Step on the Way


My name is Kevin Patton and you will never hear me tell you that, if you only change your attitude, your lot will improve.   I will never say "If only you stopped thinking irrationally, your life would be better".

My training does not make me an expert on how you should live, it taught me how to help you take your life back and become the person you want to be.

Working one-to one,  we will look at what is happening with you, how it affects you and how this becomes a problem in your life.  We will look at what keeps this going and what you have done in the past that made things a bit better.

Using this information, we will practice some techniques, find the ones that work best for you and work on a plan that will help you take control of your life.

I know you have the skills and experience to show up for what matters to you in life, and I know that sometimes, more times than you’d like, you find yourself overwhelmed by stuff that gets in the way of being who you really are.

Drawing upon my training in ACT, CBT, DBT, Open Dialogue and Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy, combined with the hard-won experience of supporting people with complex needs for over thirty years, I  focus on what actually works to help cultivate your skillful practice to free yourself from the tyranny of self-limiting thoughts, overwhelming emotions and self-defeating behaviours that suck the joy from life and steal your power.

Let's start a conversation about how skillful practice can help you take your life back.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy from the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy, accredited by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council and  the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council.  I have also been awarded the status of one to one Supervisor on the General Hypnotherapy Register.

Trained in ACT for Anxiety and Depression with Russ Harris, I also have a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, a Diploma in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy and a Foundation Certificate in Open Dialogue.

A member of the General Hypnotherapy Register, the Association for Contextual Behavioural Science and the Integrative Pain Science Institute, I am a tutor on the Cogntive Behavioural Hypnotherapy Diploma course at the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy.

In addition, I am a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader.

Member organisations

CNHC

Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.

In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

GHR

The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

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

Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council

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

I help people suffering from overwhel and burnout to feel better, sleep better and take their lives back.
