About me

I am Dr Kumar Shanmugam and work as a Consultant Psychiatrist.

I have got over 12 years’ experience of working in the NHS as a Psychiatrist. This has given me a wide knowledge and understanding of issues related to stress and mental health. I am one the very few Psychiatrists practicing hypnotherapy in UK.

I hold medical degrees (MBBS, MRCPsych) and work as a Consultant Psychiatrist. I developed a keen interest in Hypnotherapy and earned my Practitioner Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy & NLP that is accredited by General Hypnotherapy Standard Council (GHSC) and National Hypnotherapy Society.

Why do I practice hypnotherapy being a psychiatrist?

  • Because IT WORKS!
  • Hypnotherapy does not come with side effects.
  • It worked for me and so why not for YOU?
  • Heard from a lot of people saying, “I wish I had hypnotherapy years ago”.

Difficulties I can help you with:

  • Smoking cessation.
  • Self-image & weight management/loss.
  • Habits & addictions - drinking, drug abuse, nail biting, hair pulling, etc.
  • Anxiety - public speaking, poor self-esteem & confidence, blushing etc.
  • Phobias - dentists, vomiting, needles, dogs, flying, spiders, driving, etc.
  • Sleep problems.
  • IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).
  • Anger management.
  • Chronic pain – post-surgical, arthritis, terminal illness etc.
