About me

"Our wounds are often the openings into the best & beautiful parts of us"

I like to get into the business of not so much doing something for you, but rather in being something for you: a guide to help you achieve fulfilment in your life.

I now help my clients ONLINE using Zoom videoconference, a simple, convenient way to connect that clients enjoy because of less travelling time and greater flexibility.

I dislike unfairness. So any time you spend worrying about things going on in your life, whether at work or at home, holds you back and keeps you awake at night.

Sound familiar? This is the unfairness I refer to and no-one deserves to have to live their life like this.

This unfairness is what drives me to help clients. Sometimes this is because you don't feel 'good enough' or even loved.

Contact me for a no-cost, initial 30 minute phone call to explore how we can work together to get you to the happy, fulfilled person you deserve to be.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained in Cognitive Hypnotherapy & as an NLP Master Practitioner at the renowned Quest Institute in London. I am fully insured and undertake clinical supervision that helps me maintain high standards of treatment and care which means you benefit from evidence-based solutions to whatever is troubling you.

I have recent successes with clients where needle phobias are a real issue and my testimonials are available to view on my website.

I hold a Diploma in Cognitive Hypnotherapy, awarded by the National Council for Hypnotherapy. This recognised as a reputable and effective discipline and overseen by the National Council

In addition, I am an accredited Master Practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) that underpins much of how we bring solutions to everyday difficulties like you may have.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Information about health conditions (*)

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Giving presentations can be stressful for most people. Often because we feel judged by those around us or we don't feel good enough to do the job we do. Imposter Syndrome is a term used to describe these feelings.

Sometimes, we don't feel we are loved and this can cause different symptoms such as anxiety, panic and depression, maybe because relationships are suffering.

I have had recent successes with helping clients who suffer from needle phobias but any phobia can be treated.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Online sessions are confidential and convenient. No special equipment is needed as calls can be made via your smartphone or computer without the need for anything other than an internet connection.


I consult ONLINE using Zoom which offers convenience and confidentiality.

My online calendar at www.steve-mccabe.co.uk holds my availability in real time.
