About me

My name is Thomas McGowan and I set up Beacon Hope Therapy in 2016. As a fully-trained clinical hypnotherapist, I can help you to overcome a variety of obstacles that life throws at you; helping you to live a healthier, happier lifestyle.

As individuals, we all cope with life in different ways. Some of our negative experiences can manifest themselves as difficult behaviours; from substance abuse and addiction to overeating. We may also experience physical pain. Hypnotherapy can help with a range of issues by allowing you to relax and speak directly to your subconscious mind.

Under hypnosis, we access the root cause of your mental and physical pain. We can then work together with your subconscious to overcome them.

After struggling with addiction and alcoholism for over 25 years myself, and the impact that has you mentally and physically.  I hit my rock bottom and turned my life around.  I understand how it feels to be in a dark place with no sight of how to get out of it.  Whether that be soothing them feeling with food or cigarettes.  I help to empower people to take control back

Appointments available in Huddersfield, Manchester (Sundays only), Online via Video calls and home visits

I am happy to speak with people on the phone with no obligation.

Alcohol, Drugs Gambling, and other issues.

Addiction can be a dark and complex issue; whether your problem is drugs (illegal or prescription), alcohol, gambling or sex. Through hypnotherapy we can work together to determine the root cause of your addictive behaviour. Whatever stage or level of addiction you’re experiencing, I can help you to break the cycle of destructive behaviour and take back control of your life.

Weight Control

We all have busy lives and we can find it hard to eat healthily without getting caught up on different diets out there. 
Over the course of 4 sessions in the ‘Make Food Your Friend’ program we focus on your specific needs and together work to change your entire relationship with food forever.

I encourage a balance between healthy eating, and treats but at the same time you do not feel restricted or guilty for having some of the food that you really enjoy.

Stop Smoking

Quitting smoking isn’t easy. For many smokers, cigarettes have been part of their day-to-day lives for years. It’s a difficult habit to break. Under hypnosis, we’ll look at changing your routines so that they no longer include cigarettes. The “stop smoking” program is guaranteed to work, or you’ll be offered a second hypnotherapy session free of charge.

Pain Relief

OldPain2Go® is a Talking Therapy that simply helps you to challenge the aspect of your mind that is in charge of pain messages. We see if that original calculation of the level of pain is still appropriate, which it is unlikely to be after diagnosis and treatment has been completed.

This negotiation typically results in dramatically lower pain levels or total removal of your Old, out of date, unnecessary Pain Messages.

Please visit my website for more details on my services and my story.

As well as the above, I also help many people with anxiety and depression.

"What can I say about Thomas. I didn’t know him, never met him, wasn’t recommended, I saw an advertisement on instagram. Had a chat on the phone , made an appointment as he gained my trust and boy was I a happy man. Smoked 12 cigars a day and left our one and only session a non smoker. Has he helped me since , yes I struggled a little in the 3rd week and I’ve had a few other issues ( not related to smoking) and he has been there. A truly wonderful person who has had his own issues and overcome them all Would I recommend this person ? Yes, I’d say he’s a complete gift and you’d be a fool not to trust him and let him help you , he’s wonderful and I wish him every success, he deserves it , thanks Thomas. I am happy to be contacted directly to verify everything I have said"

"Thomas came to see me when I was at my lowest points.  I was stuck in what felt like a hole.  Struggling with addiction, and ruining all my relationships with those close to me.  With his help and the help of hypnotherapy, I was able to this unhealthy cycle and find myself again.  Can't thank him enough for his help"

"This wonderful man has helped me become a non smoker.....after 17 long years of a heavy 65 and no looking back. Without the session with Tomas I know I would never have stopped smoking. I am so thankful to you Tomas and wish you the very best."          S. Hussain

"The most simple and effective treatment. I have something I need to share. I have really sensitive skin .2 weeks ago I met Thomas who used the treatment Pain to go. I have been using a cream on my face for the last 3 to 4 days ......... that I haven’t been able to use ever. There’s not any irritation to my skin what so ever." K. Marsden

"Had a half hour session with Thomas to get rid of old pain. I’ve two disc problems in my lower back, I’ve had for 8 years. Definitely feel more flexible than I’ve done for years! Thank you Thomas xxx N. Hart

"5 minutes in Thomas’s company and you feel like you’re best friends he puts you so much at ease you forget what you’re there for I’ve had hypnotherapy before to stop smoking but it didn’t work so i didn’t hold out much hope this time either I was fully aware of what was going on I just felt relaxed but could see images so vividly I had 1 session and don’t even think about having a cigarette at all. I don’t want one or need one I’ve had no withdrawal symptoms at all and saved so much money I also feel a lot healthier and don’t miss having to stand outside in the cold and rain thank you Thomas for literally saving my life let him save yours too" C. Amanda

"My treatments with Thomas were a success. I knew I drank too much alcohol having created this habit over many, many years. I am now freed of this unhelpful activity and cannot thank Thomas enough. I feel and look better than I have for years. Thank you so much."

"Sessions with Thomas were great. So relaxed and chilled. It created the perfect environment for the therapy. Thomas is a top bloke and has also become a good friend. The follow-up care and his assurance is 2nd to none. I would recommend his therapy to anyone as he is a genuine chap who has time for anyone. Since seeing Thomas, I've reduced my alcohol intake and been able to control myself. What was a problem has now been made easier to control. I hope whoever reads this review trusts me. I'd have been a proper mess otherwise. Thanks again Tom"

"Thomas came to see me when I was at my lowest points.  I was stuck in what felt like a hole.  Struggling with addiction, and ruining all my relationships with those close to me.  With his help and the help of hypnotherapy, I was able to this unhealthy cycle and find myself again.  Can't thank him enough for his help"

"Thomas was fantastic at uncovering any early signs which could lead to how the addiction was born and with uncovering any personality traits that could lead to addiction. He makes the whole process very relaxed but with a great deal of focus. I couldn't recommend him highly enough."

"Working with Thomas has changed my life! I have been aware I have had an issue with alcohol dependency for many years, and this had developed into a much bigger problem in recent years. It was affecting all parts of my life,  my relationships were suffering, I was at risk of losing my house, debts were increasing,I had spent time in hospital with alcohol related injuries and had hit rock bottom with my mental health.

I had previously accessed various forms of counselling and therapy, all of which had been unsuccessful. Thomas is AMAZING! I immediately felt at ease with him, and I was able to discuss things without fear of judgement, just complete understanding. The sessions were incredibly powerful, allowing me to address and pinpoint issues regarding my anxiety and depression, as well as manage the psychological withdrawal from alcohol and rebuild areas of my life that had become damaged. In just four weeks I had begun to turn my life around.

My initial fears about the long hard battle I expected in turning my back on alcohol disappeared. With Thomas’ support and guidance I have been able to change my life. I have been offered full-time work in a job I love, I spend time with family and friends without alcohol controlling me, I’m in control of finances and have booked several holidays! None of this would have been possible without Thomas. I struggle to put into words how grateful I am to him. He’s a STAR!!"

"Thomas came into my workplace and talked to us about stress management. He made such a good impression I looked him up to see if he could help me, I signed up to his The Make Food Your Friend course. Thomas is very friendly, approachable and quickly put me at my ease.
Over the sessions Thomas has helped me address my relationship with food using hypnosis and a variety of other techniques. Whilst being professional and encouraging, helping me break the negative bad habits and reinforcing positive good habits. These have been invaluable in identifying my triggers which cause stress, therefore making bad choices with regards food.
The online audios are great support and have reinforced the important drivers that keep me focused, giving me the motivation I need to take control. I have a much better understanding of my triggers and now have the tools to make important changes to my eating habits
