Hello, I'm Stuart and I'm a fully qualified and registered Hypnotherapist, Hypno-Psychotherapist, Psychotherapist, Counsellor, Psychologist and trainer/accreditor of therapists. I see clients privately at my consulting rooms in Bolton, in Worsley, Manchester and at their homes by appointment, daytime, evenings and weekends, I am also UKCP registered and accredited to offer online appointments.
I specialise particularly in dealing with anxiety, panic attacks, self-esteem, phobias and addictions/smoking but have the necessary qualifications and experience to deal with a wide range of emotional, psychological and behavioural issues. If you wish to see more, then please click here https://talking-cure.co.uk/
My work is forward thinking and solution-focused, and I help you make a quick and lasting change. My aim is to help you reach the place you want to be, and achieve your goals as easily as possible. I am CNHC accredited, an Anxiety UK approved therapist, and I adhere to the UKCP code of ethical conduct. It is important to check the level of qualification and accreditation of any potential therapist, and below you can see my details and awards listed in full.
By choosing me, you have access to not only a Hypnotherapist, but also to the benefit of over nine years of Master's level academic training in Psychotherapy, Psychology and Counselling to ensure that you are in safe hands. For many clients, hypnotherapy is all that's required, but psychotherapy allows deeper exploration of issues or problems if necessary, which enables a greater understanding of emotional and behavioural patterns. This helps to create a healthier, more balanced perspective and effect positive change.
I look forward to working with you.
