About me

I (Stuart) provide psychoanalysis, clinical hypnotherapy and associated psychotherapies in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Falkirk, Dublin. My primary styles of hypnotherapy are Hypnoanalysis (Analytic style), Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy and Mindfulness Based Hypnotherapy. I am also termed an analytic hypnotherapist. I am trained in advanced PTSD work and somatic therapy.

I do not do short term work. This is easy for newly qualified therapists.

I am also a qualified and accredited Clinical Supervisor

  • I am interested in taking on clients with complex PTSD and anger management issues. Includes Child Sexual Abuse, Domestic Abuse, Developmental Trauma

  • I also work with depression, anxiety, mood disorders and eating disorders

I am CNHC registered (the UK Voluntary regulator covering Hypnotherapy under complementary therapies) and am registered on both the CNHC and FHT AR Schemes. Accredited registers are maintained by the professional standards authority for healthcare professions not subject to statutory regulation.

Hypnotherapy is a very powerful psychotherapeutic tool, it is not however a magic cure. It uses well researched and evidenced psychotherapeutic and complementary therapy methods to make real and lasting changes, but regular attendance for a clinically appropriate length of time is required for lasting change. We do not offer treatment unless it is clinically appropriate. Our website offers references to research and NICE guidelines for issues where appropriate.

Please email first (not phone). Because of being in client sessions and travelling it is tricky to take phone calls anyway. Besides we send a FREE, NO OBLIGATION information pack to all new contacts and are happy to have a brief confidential free email chat before you decide whether or not to book, just to make sure it is for you.

I am professionally registered with the National Association of Counsellors, Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists as a counsellor, hypnotherapist, psychoanalyst and psychotherapist (a UKCHO founder organisation and CNHC verification route), I am a Fellow and Supervisor with the National Council of Psychotherapists (another CNHC verification route), I am a Fellow of the International Council of Psychotherapists, I am a full practitioner member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists (CNHC verification route and AR scheme), am registered under the FHT for hypnotherapy, mindfulness therapy and EMMETT. I am a Fellow and Director of the Society of Holistic Therapists and Coaches.

I am registered as a hypnotherapist with the CNHC Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, an official government backed voluntary regulator and Professional Standards Authority Accredited Register for complementary therapies (including hypnotherapy).

I provide multi-modal therapy, which means I am qualified and experienced in a range of different therapy methods, and can use them alone or by combining and integrating methods, tools and ideas from psychoanalysis, hypnotherapy, counselling, NLP, CBT, MBCT, MBSR, CBASP, Mindfulness, DBT, Gestalt, psychotherapy, psychology, Life coaching, mindfulness, meditation, philosophy, sociology, theology and eastern psychology. I combine them to meet the individual needs of the client or couple. As the old expression goes, "if all you have is a hammer, all you see is nails!" I have studied constantly since beginning in 1993 to collect a fully working toolbox!

I am dedicated to ongoing university level continuous professional training, and I receive regular clinical supervision.

I use research evidenced and NICE recommended therapies as a core approach within holistic and customised personal assistance. Core approaches including CBT, MBCT, MBSR, DBT, CBASP, Short Term psychoanalysis, Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy & Mindfulness are all research evidenced and or NICE recommended (see our website for references).

I am not a substitute for medical attention and clients must maintain medical supervision where diagnosed conditions are present.

I do NOT do stop smoking sessions

Training, qualifications & experience

1993-1996 I completed a post graduate diploma in psychoanalysis, clinical hypnotherapy and humanistic counselling with ASM, diploma recognised by the Society of Stress Managers, a CNHC verification route. The diploma required over 200 supervised client cases (over 1,000 client hours), external assessment through the NVQ T&D system and 3 years of regular classroom training. I later completed accreditation in psychoanalysis, cognitive behavioural psychotherapy, humanistic counselling and clinical hypnotherapy with the National Association of Counsellors Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists, a former HIPC / UKCP approved route, and now CNHC approved accreditation route (hypnotherapy). I have also completed accreditation with the National Council of Psychotherapists ( a CNHC accreditation route: hypnotherapy) in hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and counselling.

I am registered with the Federation of Holistic Therapists (who hold a PSA Accredited Register) under Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness and Emmett, and I am also a Mindfulness Association registered practitioner: Mindfulness, Compassion and Acceptance based work. The latter means I adhere to regular and daily mindfulness practice in my own personal and professional life. I practice what I preach!

        Some clients want solution focused short treatment courses, for example for simple public speaking or sports hypnosis and this is valid and welcome. Also stopping smoking is usually a single visit. Most issues however, if more serious in nature, require regular attendance, and a weekly or fortnightly slot will be provided and clients are expected to attend regularly and provide 7 days notice of cancellation.

        Stuart provides psychoanalysis, hypnotherapy, counselling, psychotherapy, NLP, CBT, Life coaching, psychology, meditation, self hypnosis and a range of eastern psychologies.

        My philosophy is to be integrative and multi modal in approach, customizing the treatment to you the client(s). I do not offer treatment that is not clinically appropriate.

        My core disciplines are psychoanalysis and hypnotherapy although I use the other methods at my disposal around these for your individual needs.

        My main psychoanalysis influences are Lacan, Freud, Jung, Klein and various philosophers including Nietzsche, Foucault and Hume.

        My main couples counselling or couples psychoanalysis influence is social psychoanalytic, with additional focus on communications and understanding, including the perceptual positions and parent / adult / child transactional analysis positions.

        I am registered with 2 Accredited voluntary registers (CNHC and FHT) and am professional registered and insured. I also adhere to appropriate NOS National Occupational Standards.

        I am PVG registered and enhance disclosure checked to work with young people and vulnerable adults. I work with teenagers upwards. I am an accredited 1st Aid at work 1st Aider.

        I have particular interest in long term psychoanalysis for deep rooted emotional and developmental issues, and the use of hypnotherapy as a CBT and analytic tool. I work frequently with the management of stress, anger, bipolar, anxiety and depression. Where a clinical condition exists I work WITH the medical profession.

        I am also a specialist in faith based psychotherapy, especially the multi-faith and eastern areas. I never bring faith into secular work without client request, but I do also work with clients, often LGBT* clients, who want to explore faith or spirituality within therapy.

        I have clinics in
