About me

Hi, I am Stephen Bate a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist specialising in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. This uses a combination of modern therapy techniques to enable people to regain control of their lives, giving them the confidence to make decisions and look positively for ways to change their thinking. I like the way that this combination can help clients achieve fast and lasting results, more than hypnosis alone.

I have always been fascinated with hypnosis and the power of our mind but it was only when I visited a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist that I truly appreciated how powerful it could be and it changed my whole perception. I now approach life with a completely different mindset. Being part of a client's journey to get them to this point too is a real privilege.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained with Clifton Practice, which is considered to be the leading hypnotherapy clinic in the country, here I earned my Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH) and Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD) which is considered the gold standard for Hypnotherapists.

I am proud to be a member of the following professional bodies, the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH), National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH)  these all ensure that their members are fully trained and follow strict codes of conduct.

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.
