Philip Roberts of Odysseus Hypnotherapy is a proponent of evidence based practice. His studies in the field have lead him to examine the empirical evidence supporting therapeutic interventions in clinical hypnotherapy and integrating the best research evidence into the decision making process for client care.
Philip offers a confidential service from a private, comfortable and well appointed consultation room in Bedfordshire, England. With good road and rail access, it is well situated for visiting clients based in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and London. With video-conferencing becoming a popular mode of conducting hypnotherapy sessions, Philip is also experienced in delivering hypnotherapy sessions via Skype to national and international clients.
A free 30 minute initial consultation is provided by phone or Skype. This gives you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have, find out more about hypnosis and discuss the issue you need help with.
