About me

As a professional coach, therapist and hypnotherapist, I have over 18 years clinical experience and have conducted hundreds of face-to-face consultations helping people heal in that time.

I specialise in providing integrated hypnotherapy and psychotherapy services to individuals who are struggling with issues such as anxiety, panic attacks, stress, chronic pain, alcohol, addictions, psychosomatic and medical health issues, and can help you with issues including performance hypnosis and confidence.

Non-judgemental, warm, friendly and down to earth, I will approach you as a unique individual recognising that you are the expert on you. Rather than focusing on medical labels, I will take a broad and holistic view of your current issues, looking at all physical, psychological, emotional, medical, social and spiritual factors that may be having an impact on your current health and well being.

My therapeutic approach is entirely client-focused. All one to one sessions are uniquely tailored to your particular individual needs. My aim is always to help you achieve genuine, lasting positive change safely in the fastest time possible for you.

Most clients only need between 1 and 3 sessions with me. Those who require ongoing coaching and development arrange sessions over a longer period of time.

Whatever your issue, I can help.

A typical feedback from my work in the last month:

Derek: “I have had a serious gambling addiction for over 20 years. I have always buried my head in the sand, never admitting I had a problem. I finally decided to find help as my life and my family’s life were spiralling downwards into a pit of depression, fear and despair. After trawling the internet I came across Mike Bell who looked very genuine, trusting, highly experienced and qualified in a variety of different therapies and coaching methods. After my first session I have never had a thought about gambling and feel like a ton weight has been lifted from my shoulders. He put my mind at ease and helped me totally transform my decisions and my life. I would truly recommend Mike for any kind of problem or addiction you may have. He has changed my life and I cannot thank him enough”.  Thankyou Mike.

If my approach is of interest to you, and you are serious about making changes to your wellbeing and your life then please contact me to discuss your life matters, in a way which is supportive and confidential.

If you are considering working with me, please call me or text me  on 07754 937341 or email me direct info@mikebelltherapy.com

Kindest Regards,

Mike Bell

Prices and Policies


Phone: 07754 937341 or 01900 821122

First session: Cost - £65.  60 mins.

Subsequent Sessions: £50. 60 mins.



Appointments required will vary depending on condition, the individual and the amount of support required. Sometimes one appointment is sufficient to achieve the change required, however, for longer term programmes such as weight loss, it is normal to require at least 4 sessions over a period of time.



If you have booked an appointment, and you need to cancel, there is no fee as long as you cancel at least 24 hours in advance. For single appointment cancellations made within 24 hours, or no-shows, then payment is required in full. For cancellations/no-shows within 24 hours whereby the appointment is part of a package, then the fee for the appointment will be deducted from the package cost paid.


My time is valuable and so is yours. If you are late for an appointment then you lose that time. If you don’t show then you will still be charged in full. In return I promise to honour our appointments and to be on time too.


When you book an appointment with me, I commit to having enough time available and to secure the room. That effects how many clients I take on. For that reason I don’t offer refunds.

Further information

Thankyou for visiting the information on my private coaching and therapy practice based in Cockermouth, Cumbria, at the North Lakes Clinic.

All my adult life, I have had a deep interest in Human Psychology, health and how the mind functions.

I began my training in this field some 15 years ago in the U.S. aswell as the U.K.  My mentors and teachers are world renowned in terms of human change technologies/therapies, and include Richard Bandler, Stephen Gilligan, Bill O’Hanlon, Tad James, and John Overdurf.

Good mental wellbeing together with physical health are fundamental to us all. I am very fortunate in that my studies, work and success in the field of coaching and therapy provide me with a rewarding and fulfilling profession.

To the present day I continue to train with John Overdurf to continue my development in the field, combining NLP/HNLP Coaching and Therapy, Hypnotherapy and Time Based Coaching into a powerful method of helping people change their mindsets and therefore the results they wish to create in their lives.

I work in close partnership with my clients to afford them a bespoke, open, honest and totally confidential approach. The therapy and coaching adopted is always tailored to individual need and circumstance.

My clients vary in age, from ordinary walks of life to elite athletes and directors of organisations. 

I am passionate about helping my clients succeed and change in their behaviour, mind, feelings and spirit, in relation to the here and now as well as external influences and relationships. A key element in life is relationships, of which connection with ourselves and others is important.

A trusting, honest, down to earth, real and authentic relationship is important with all the clients I work with. Great emphasis is placed on the coaching and therapeutic relationship, so that my clients feel understood and can move on to make the changes in life they want.
