After a lifetime working in the media, Richard Reed made the decision to take his life in a new direction by training as a clinical hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner, and launching New Horizons Therapy in Dorchester and Poole.
Richard says the move was prompted by a life-long interest in the workings of the brain, and in particular the deep-rooted links between mind and body.
“I also enjoy working with people and helping them to overcome their challenges. It’s incredibly rewarding to see someone who has been suffering, sometimes for years, be helped quickly and easily with hypnotherapy.”
Richard offers a free 20-minute consultation to new clients.
Training, qualifications & experience
Advanced Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Master Practitioner of NLP.
Certified by the General Hypnotherapy Register and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
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.
