About me

Be The best You Can Be!

Hello, I'm Philip Duncan Griggs and I work as a Psychotherapist, Hypnotherapist & Life Empowerment Therapist in Houghton Regis in Bedfordshire

About Me

I qualified as a Psychotherapist & Hypnotherapist in 2009, and have been involved in Therapy based careers since 1991. My experience with Therapy and Psychology has been helping people in challenging life and personal situations encouraging them to take back control of their lives. This has been extremely rewarding, witnessing and experiencing the often profound, positive life changes.

I have worked for Premiership Footballers and members of the British Olympics team.

I have also been providing motivation & empowerment training & development sessions for DWP, helping unemployed people, the homeless and those facing exclusion in life to gain their self confidence and dignity thus leading to employment, training, (possibly a home) and a new life.

Previously I have worked as a Hostage Negotiator, Facilitator and Psychologist for the Prison Service before choosing a rewarding and successful career in Hypnotherapy. Some of the skills I use, are to help people discover how, they can over come their issues and challenges in life. Often just a different approach, to a problem can help resolve their difficulties.

" The way to get out of a problem is to chose a different approach from the method you chose that got you into your problem." (Albert Einstein)

My first experience with Hypnosis was in 1998 when I gave up smoking with the aid of Hypnotherapy. Since then I have never smoked and never wanted to smoke! I am glad to say the people who have given up smoking through my therapy sessions say exactly the same thing too!

From the testimonials and feedback I receive from clients, I thoroughly believe Hypnosis is a powerful and effective Therapy.

How Psychotherapy & Hypnotherapy can Help You.

Psychotherapy & Hypnotherapy can help you to take back your power and regain control over your life with `Life Empowerment Therapy' (LETs).

If you are suffering from Stress & Anxiety, Fears / Phobias or need to release excess weight, I can help you! I use the latest techniques of Psychotherapy & Hypnotherapy to help you achieve your goal.

My specialist areas are:

  • Pain Management
  • Stress, Anxiety & Depression
  • Weight Loss Therapy & Gastric Band Therapy
  • Drug & Alcohol Addiction
  • Life Empowerment Therapy
  • Confidence and Self Esteem
  • Smoking Cessation
  • Past Life Regression
  • Hot - Flushes Menopause
  • Fears & Phobias

Pain Management

Chronic Pain can cause havoc and bring unrest into your life. Imagine a boulder in the middle of a flowing river, the boulder disturbs the flow of water around it. Pain has the same effect, disturbing the flow of energy through your body often creating dis-ease.
Pain Control Therapy works by blocking the pain by using your Subconscious Mind.
The resulting Pain Control Therapy may help to significantly reduce pain.

Stress & Anxiety Therapy

Stress & Anxiety can upset your health and lifestyle leaving you feeling like a tightly wound up coil! Using powerful Relaxation & Hypnotherapy Tools your Stress and Anxiety levels are reduced to more comfortable levels bringing a calmer, more positive frame of mind.

Weight Releasment Therapy & Gastric Band

By using Powerful Hypnotic suggestions and working with your Subconscious Mind. Hypnotherapy may help you to not only lose excess weight, but may release the underlying problems/issues that caused you to gain weight. Workshops and/or one to one Therapy Sessions are available for Weight Releasment Therapy.
Hypnotic Gastric Band Therapy has proved to be a very effective method of Weight Releasment by suggesting to your Subconscious Mind that a Gastric Band has been fitted. Global Statistics suggest this is achieving over 80% success rate, higher than actually having the operation!

Life Empowerment Therapy

This is a combination of Therapies that may help you Empower your life to help you "Be The Best You Can Be!"

The focus of Life Empowerment Therapy is to help individuals overcome difficulties, issues and negative thoughts by using Empowerment strategies.

By developing new positive thinking attitudes and increasing confidence skills, people can begin the process of understanding and achieving their realistic ambitions and goals in life!

Confidence & Self Esteem

Divorce, job loss and other negative influences can impact upon your life and decrease your confidence and cause loss of self esteem. Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy may help you to become more positive, confident, regain your self esteem and refocus on your goals and aims in life. Get your Zest Back!!

Smoking Cessation

Hypnotherapy is one of the most powerful therapies available to help you to kick the nicotine habit! Hypnosis not only removes the addiction but also can help to deal with issues about why you have smoked i.e. stress or emotional issues etc.

Past Life Regression

Hypnotherapy maybe used to release issues that are connected to this life or from a previous life. The issue may be a fear, phobia or mental block. Once the issue is understood and released, found a positive new sense of well-being is often experienced!
People also like to discover, on a recreational level who they were in previous lives. this can also help to understand why you maybe going through certain situations in this life time. This interesting form of Hypnotherapy is explored in depth in our popular workshops. One to one sessions also available.
