Hello, I am Rob Kerley a qualified counsellor and hypnotherapist. I am a member of the National Counselling Society and National Hypnotherapy Society. I offer a number of different person centred therapies using different counselling methods. I aim to work with each client to develop an individual therapy plan.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a form of complementary therapy that utilises the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Hypnotherapy is widely endorsed as a treatment for habit breaking, stress related issues and for a range of long-term conditions, and in recent years has been gaining more recognition in the medical world.
Some of the more common conditions that can be helped with hypnotherapy are listed below (this list is by no means exhaustive) -
- gambling addiction
- panic attacks
- fear of flying
- alcohol abuse
- weight loss
- quit smoking
- food addiction
- low self esteem
- gastric band hypnotherapy
- irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Why Choose Me?
Seeking help can be a difficult (but courageous) step to take but the rewards can far outweigh the initial fears or concerns. I am passionate about my work as a counsellor and hypnotherapist having experienced first hand the difference effective counselling can make to a person. I would very much like to work with you and to help you achieve your goals.
I offer a safe and confidential setting with a warm and relaxed approach. This is also on a ‘risk free’ basis - if after our initial consultation you don’t feel I am the right therapist for you I will refund my fee and you are not tied to any further sessions with me.

Testimonials from clients -
“I knew I needed help. I plucked up the courage to call Rob and as soon as I heard his wonderful calm voice I knew I had made the right decision. I highly recommend Rob as a supportive, encouraging and understanding therapist who will help and guide you through whatever personal challenge you face.” GC
“The first session was very easy and Rob is so welcoming. It was structured so it felt like a chat and he didn’t ask me directly why I was there. I kept thinking please don’t ask me why I am here as I don’t know what to say. I find the hypnotherapy very relaxing and releases any stresses I have going on at the time. I have recommended Rob to a few friends who have been going through similar situations.” DM
"When I decided to look for a Counsellor I researched many and was drawn to Rob by his testimonials. Having never done this before, I visited Rob with apprehension as I didn’t know what to expect. Rob put me at ease straight away and encouraged me to talk openly. He has a very calm and reassuring approach and having a very non-judgemental and non-related person encourage you to open up and listen has made a massive difference to me and I would thoroughly recommend Rob to anyone." GC
"Many thanks Rob. I had never sought professional help before, so that first contact was a real leap of faith. The fact that I could speak openly with you about heartfelt issues is testament to the trust I have in you, and I am so glad that I plucked up the courage to take that first vital step." HM
"Rob can I just say that you have been infinitely helpful over the last several months and I will always be grateful. What you do makes a real difference to people." KA
