Pete Luce Hypnotherapy Plymouth
Most of my work involves helping people to overcome anxiety, phobia, and the effects of trauma. I also have a special interest in helping people to recover from controlling and abusive relationships. I work from my own spacious private office with waiting room in Plymouth city centre, about five minutes walk from Royal Parade.
Training, qualifications & experience
My first career was in mental health nursing, mainly in multi-cultural areas of inner London. I managed a busy short-stay mental health ward and was also involved in one of the first NHS open-access counselling services and one of the first NHS Crisis Intervention services. I have worked as a hypnotherapist for 25 years. Following my first training with the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy, I have done further training with many other experts from Britain and America including Dr Brent Geary (Milton Erickson Foundation in Arizona USA), Dr Geoff Ibbotson, and Lee Gerard Barlow (the UK representative for Dr Marco Paret).
I also have a Diploma in Counselling and an Honours Degree in Psychology.

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

Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme

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
Recovery from controlling relationships
£45 per session
I have a positively affirmative attitude towards all forms of sexual expression so long as they are risk-aware and consensual between adults.
