Stephen Towill - UKHA,GHR Reg.
Hi, I'm Stephen, I'm a fully qualified and experienced hypnotherapist and affiliated member of the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council. I've been passionate about hypnotherapy since I started studying it way back in 1991 and have always been driven to understand how the minds work.
Hypnotherapy is a powerful technique that can help you overcome your issues and create positive changes in your life. By utilising the mind's strengths, positive changes in the way you think, act or react in many areas of your life are possible.
I am proficient in the use of hypnosis and various other complimentary protocols when working with anxiety, stress, fears, phobias, smoking cessation, weight loss, confidence, motivation, low self-esteem and bereavement to name a few.
Feel free to email me first and ask me about any questions or concerns you may have before booking sessions. I've helped many people overcome their challenges and would be happy to help and support you to achieve the same.
If you're ready to take that first step, book the initial consultation with me and we can discuss your goals and expectations for the therapy. Together, we can get started on overcoming your issues and start to move towards positive resolutions.
I also offer my hypnosis services over Skype or Zoom if preferred.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified and skilled hypnotherapist, insured, and registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register.
- Certificate in Hypnosis - taught by Doug Buckingham director of CARA Centre of Transformational Learning, accredited by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council.
- Diploma in Analytical Hypnotherapy taught by Dr Clare Jack of The Academy of Integrated Hypnotherapy, accredited by the General Hypnotherapy standards Council.
- Diploma as a Hypnotherapy Specialist Practitioner taught by John Dewar School of Hypnotherapy. training accredited by the General Hypnotherapy standards Council and ACCPH Accredited counsellors, coaches, psychotherapists and hypnotherapists.
- Hypnosis and Kinetic Shift Practitioner taught by the UK Hypnosis Academy.
I have also studied with many other trainers, including some internationally recognised leaders in the field of hypnotherapy. This allows me to keep up to date with the latest developments within hypnotherapy, and allows me to take this expertise to utilise it for the benefit the clients I work with.
Although hypnotherapy has been a key part of my life, I did dedicate a large part of my life successfully climbing the corporate ladder, working for a large UK based media company. I eventually decided to take a leap of faith and follow my life long passion, going on to start my own private practice as a full time hypnotherapist.
Since making that decision I have never looked back and have been in the privileged position of being able to help so many people overcome challenges, allowing them to take back control of their lives.

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.

Testimonials (Google reviews)
"I went to Stephen with an open mind to have hypnotherapy to help with anxiety and low mood. I was struggling with crying a lot, feeling low and having spells of anxiety which led to decrease in motivation and loss of interest in life. After one session with Stephen I felt like a weight was lifted and I could wake up without dread for the day, felt more motivated and had more energy. I never realised how effective it would be. I returned for second session today to tackle anger was feeling and already feel calmer in myself. I am so grateful to have found Stephen. He is professional, knowledgeable and passionate about hypnotherapy. He gave me techniques also to utilise should I feel anxious or anger. Highly recommend hypnotherapy. Thank you Stephen" Hannah F
"I have been claustrophobic all my life, and have a real fear of enclosed spaces especially elevators. However, recently due to changes in my health I needed to face this fear as I needed to have an MRI. I had three one hour sessions with Stephen and I have now not only had my MRI but I no longer have any trouble in using the elevator. Since the sessions with Stephen I have a new confidence. I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I can not thank Stephen enough.' M Miller

"I have recently used Stephen's service and I now feel confident I have kicked my habit of smoking, I was surprised at how quick this worked and not had one since my meeting with Stephen. He has also gave me a recording I can use as a refresher if I feel I need to along with some tip sheets as support. Thank you again from a happy and confident non-smoker!" M - Le Ray
