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.

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.
The Initial Consultation – Free
There is no charge for the initial consultation.
This is an informal discussion which includes an explanation of hypnosis and the therapeutic process and to determine the best course of action to help you achieve your goals. The session time is about 45 minutes but can run over a little depending on the nature of the issue. After the initial consultation, should you wish to proceed with a course of treatment our fees are as follows:
Individual Therapy Sessions – £ 65.00
These sessions are the therapeutic use of Clinical Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy delivered from a treatment plan created following the initial consultation. The session time is approximately 50-60 minutes. A CD /MP3 recording of the session is provided free of charge for self-hypnosis purposes.
Smoking cessation – £ 180.00
Due to the nature of the ‘Quit 4 Life’ therapeutic process to achieve a lifelong cessation of the smoking habit this is a one-off session lasting approximately 120 minutes. Elements of the initial consultation are utilised within this session and a separate motivational CD/MP3 recording is included.
NLP Coaching sessions – £65 per session
Sessions are typically 60 minutes in duration and conducted on a weekly or fortnightly basis. These can either be done face-to-face or via telephone or Skype if more convenient.
