Stephen Calderbank (Ad Pro Dip PC), MBACP
As a qualified professional I am skilled in the confidential, ethical application of Hypnotherapy, Counselling and Life-Coaching techniques. I will work in true partnership with you, to create your own unique personal stepping stones for life...helping you to be the best you can be in a challenging world!
I will work with you to help unleash the power and potential that you hold within your own subconscious mind ....unleashing the power that you have to eradicate the things which are getting in the way of you enjoying most from life's journey.
My ways of working:
I will have an initial consultation with you to establish your desired outcomes from therapy, formulate an integrative approach to therapy that meets your specific needs and then agree this programme with you prior to commencement.
This programme usually lasts between 4 to 8 sessions depending on the clients "presenting issue". Each session lasts no more than an hour and can be delivered at my practice address or the clients home , whichever is most practical. I am fully insured and work within the ethical guidelines of both Hypnotherapy and Counselling societies.
Whilst being able to address many generic issues affecting my clients I specialise in Depression, Stress, Anxiety, Phobias, Weight/Pain/Anger Management, Loss & Grief, Confidence and Self-Esteem, as well as coming to terms with work, life and relationship issues...i.e. public speaking, exam/interview nerves, facing redundancy, terminal illness, suddenly single etc.
If you want to know more about how I achieve this, then please give me a call on my mobile or drop me a line via e-mail. If I am unable to take your call, I will endeavour to get back to you within 24hrs. I hope you enjoy visiting my website where I have shared a lot of useful information about "Talking Therapies" and to help you to understand how these can empower you to get more fulfilment from life!

Training, qualifications & experience
- Registered member of the National Hypnotherapy Society
- Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling
- Member of British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists MBACP
After a successful career in consultancy helping large companies to achieve business goals, I have set up my private Hypnotherapy, Counselling & Life-coaching practice to do similar at a humanistic and personal level.
In essence, I shifted from:
“Helping organisations to be the best they can be in a challenging world”
“Helping individuals to be the best they can be in a challenging world”
I have now discovered my own real true gifts and talent and get tremendous fulfilment from helping others get more from life, overcome the personal challenges they are faced with or to reach the aspirations they dream of.
I am currently a Director/Trustee at Veterans in Sefton (A registered Charity that supports former military men, women and their families).

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have one of the medical conditions starred above, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies or treatments.
My Fees vary dependent on the presenting issues of the client.
However, further details of these are available are in the Frequently Asked Questions FAQ's section of my website.
Life was once described to me as “ Like trying to cross a fast flowing river using a series of stepping stones".
Sometimes they are large, solid under foot and the crossing is pleasant and enjoyable... sometimes the stepping stones are small, slippery and cause you to wobble or fall....sometimes there appears to be no stepping stones at all!”
If there are personal issues and challenges in your life that you need to face up to, need support with, or you have unfulfilled dreams and aspirations..... you have come to the right place!
I will help build your stepping stones for Life!
