Stuart Thompson Colchester GQHyp, NLPMaster - Anxiety and Addictions Specialist
Anxiety and addictions specialist
Anxiety can be one of the most painful things to experience in life, many clients contact me after trying a range of other therapies.
Children with anxiety
I specialise in the treatment of anxiety and work with adults and children to help them overcome anxiety quickly. Often children with anxiety do not need lots of therapy to change their situation, but just need to make some small adjustments to help them overcome anxiety permantly.
People visit me for many reasons whether it be anxiety or they lack confidence or have a fear. To lose weight or make that massive change they have longed to make. The techniques and skills I use enable me to create bespoke cutting edge treatment that can have great results.
I believe everyone is unique and therefore the sessions we have together will be uniquely created just for you. I offer a completely no obligation free session to everyone that contacts me. It's a great way to for you to find out more about the way I work and how I can help you achieve the result you want as quickly and effectively as possible.
I have a background in client centered work, with people in crisis and with life shortening illnesses. I have certification in Hypnotherapy, Hypnosis, Life Coaching and Psychotherapy. As practitioner I have a wide range of experience in treating a range of issues these are many and varied.
I am most well known for my work treating people with ongoing anxiety and people with addictions to gambling or alcohol or drugs. My work often involves supporting people to move on from long term anxieties, including OCD, HOCD, POCD and generalised anxiety disorder GAD.
In recent years I have developed specialist approaches in a number of areas, these include self confidence, eating disorders, and weight loss.
For many years I lead one of the North's leading practitioners I regularly work with high profile clients ranging from premiership footballers, soap stars and some of the regions most successful business people.
Having recently relocated to West Mersea, Colchester in Essex, I believe the combined power Hypnotherapy and NLP is one of the most powerful tools available in mind science.
I work with hypnosis and NLP as it enables clients to experience massive changes in their life in a surprisingly short space of time. I regularly see individuals who have lived with a problem for many years and are truly shocked and delighted to discover that they are free from it after just an hour of therapy.
Also I see many clients who have had months or even years of other therapy for complex issues such as eating disorders or depression and find that after a small number of visits to my clinic they feel their condition has improved substantially. I specialise in the treatment of anxiety and addiction.
