William Hard Dip CAH, HPD, BCH, CI CNHC reg
I am Bill Hard, and I am a fully qualified clinical hypnotist and hypnotherapist with further training in psychotherapy offering both face to face and online appointments. Psychotherapy can allow a deeper exploration of issues or problems if necessary, which enables a greater understanding of emotional and behaviour, however, for many clients, hypnotherapy is all that's required. I specialise in helping people overcome anxiety, panic attacks and phobias as well as managing chronic pain. I also commonly work with many other issues such as building confidence and self-esteem and much more besides.
If you are unsure just call text or email and ask, and I will give you my honest opinion about whether I can help.
During the current COVID 19 situation, I am unable to see clients face to face but can still offer effective help via skype or zoom. This is a different way of working but in most cases can still achieve the same great results.
I am passionate about your ability to create the change that you want. I have over 15 years of experience as a hypnotherapist, and before that, I was working as a nurse, trainer, coach, and stress management consultant and mindfulness and meditation teacher. In fact, I have been working with people helping them to overcome problems and achieve their goals for most of my adult life and I feel this breadth of experience positively informs the way I work as a hypnotherapist. I have also taught Hypnotherapy for the UK Academy of therapeutic arts and sciences, but prefer to concentrate on one to one work with clients at the moment.
I see myself as the facilitator of your ability to grow and create the change you want.
As a hypnotherapist, I work very directly in a very solution-oriented way and strive to complete the change in the shortest time that works for you in creating lasting change.
If you choose to work with me not only will you get a distinctive approach informed by wealth and breadth of experience, but I can promise you that you will be treated, with respect and professionalism

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
Thoughts and Ideas
People can suffer from thoughts of low self-esteem, or obsessive thoughts about someone or something. They may not be able, for example to get out of their minds the idea that they are suffering from an illness, despite medical reassurance, or that a partner is unfaithful. hypnotherapy can help the client to change such ideas.
People can suffer from a wide variety of distressing feelings such as panic attacks, anxiety, jealousy, guilt, anger or inadequacy. Whatever the problem feeling, hypnotherapy can deal with it more specifically than can a drug – and without harmful side effects.
People can find themselves in the grip of many habits that they seem unable to control, from something like nail biting or smoking to more deep-seated compulsions.
hypnotherapy, using hypnotic techniques, can help to remove habits with precision and again, with a total freedom from side effects.

Call me for a free no obligation telephone call to discuss your needs. I can then discuss what you need, and give you a clear idea of what I am able to offer you. During the call I can guide you through how I would see the strategy of our work together - how many sessions you might need and what the timings of any sessions might work best. Choosing a therapist is an important decision and it's important that you are free to ask me as many questions as you wish!
