About me

Hi my name is Philip... I specialise in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy which uses practical, modern and well-researched strategies to help people make significant, positive changes in their lives in a relatively short period of time. As a solution focused hypnotherapist, I look at what my clients want to achieve, rather than on the problem(s) that prompts them to seek change.

During Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, I use a variety of different techniques that have been proven time and time again to be highly effective in bringing about positive and sustained change. Above all, I endeavour to make this process a fun one and we do not spend time going over painful past memories, focusing instead on the present and the future.

As a Clinical Solution Focused Hypnotherapist the following areas are of particular interest to me - professional/personal anxiety and stress, confidence and self-esteem, children and young adults, learning disability, sleep and relaxation, sports performance, LGBT well-being, weight gain/loss, fears and phobias, O.C.D. and smoking cessation.

Training, qualifications & experience

Over the course of the last 15 years I have held leadership positions in both the Department of Health and Social Care and the Department of Education in Northern Ireland.

Through these professional roles, I have supported children and young adults, as well as families and staff in dealing with challenges in their lives. You can find out more about my professional background on my website www.woodbournehousehp.co.uk

In 2016, I established Woodbourne House Hypnotherapy Practice, which is a private hypnotherapy practice located in the countryside, outside of Ballynahinch, Co. Down.

I attained my hypnotherapy qualifications through The Clifton Practice Bristol (Belfast Satellite College), recognised as the Centre of Excellence for hypnotherapy training.

I hold the Solution Focused Hypnotherapy Diploma as well as the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma, considered as the gold standard in hypnotherapy training.

I am registered with the following professional organisations -

  • I am registered with the Association of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH)
  • I am registered with the Complementary and National Healthcare Council (CNHC), which is the UK regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners, which I work subject to their Code of Ethics.
  • I am registered with the General Teaching Council NI (GTCNI)
  • I am registered with the National Council for Hypnotherapists (NCH).
  • I hold an AccessNI Enhanced Disclosure Certificate which enables me to work with children and vulnerable adults.
  • I hold Hypnotherapy Practitioners Insurance underwritten by Holistic Insurance Services.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
