Alan Gray MA BSc DHP HPD AdvDipH MNCH FNCP
Do you suffer from:
Anxiety, panic attacks, stress, lack of confidence,
depression, being overweight, low self-esteem,
alcohol or smoking addictions, IBS, gambling, fear of flying, excessive worrying, fears & phobias and other issues which can get in the way of your health and happiness...
Alan Gray will help you get you back on track, feel happier, more positive, full of life and resilient to fully enjoy your life.
Do have a look at his website - including the videos (also added under the Photos and Videos Section below) - to see if hypnosis is right for you.
Hypnosis is a completely natural therapy, free of undesirable side-effects unlike many medications.
Alan will help you address your anxiety, build self-confident, assist you to lose weight or to stop smoking, reduce fears & phobias, banish depression, resolve panic attacks, address Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) symptoms, improve your relationships, help you enjoy better sex and resolve many other everyday issues too. Of course, hypnotherapy is not a cure for all ills but it has much to offer.
You will find Alan to be understanding, professional and non-judgemental.
All consultations are held in a comfortable, private and professional environment at:
Scarborough Hypnotherapy, 29-31 Falsgrave Road, Scarborough YO125EA, North Yorkshire.
Alan as been working in Scarborough as a Integrated Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner since 2006 with varied professional experience. He is one of the most qualified and experienced practitioners in North Yorkshire.
He initially qualified as a Hypnoanalyst with the Hypnotherapy Control Board and was invited to join The International Association of Pure Hypnoanalysts (IAPH), now the International Association of Evidence-Based Psychotherapy. Since then Alan has added many other formal qualifications, including Advanced Diplomas in Hypnotherapy and Stress Consultancy.
His qualifications include the highly regarded 'gold standard' Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD), which in fact is the ONLY externally accredited hypnotherapy qualification at practitioner level in the United Kingdom.
Alan has also completed a programme of personal therapy himself to ensure he is free of any emotional issues. Some hypnotherapists suffer from personal issues that can get in the way of helping their clients.
Some Client Testimonials
"Hi Alan, just letting you know that I passed my driving test yesterday and only had a small amount of nerves. I'm convinced my nerves would have taken over me more if I hadn't had hypnotherapy with you so thanks very much!" Sophie
"I visited Alan Gray earlier this year as I was experiencing personal problems. On my first visit I found Alan to be a person who never judges you, but who was quite happy to sit and listen to the problems I was experiencing. The more sessions I attended the more I found I was able to talk openly about my troubles. The hypnotherapy I underwent has made me stronger as a person and all this is down to one person: Alan Gray. I would not hesitate to seek treatment from Alan in the future if I need to.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for giving me my life back. When I wake in the morning I'm ready to face the world with confidence and relish. Once again Alan many thanks. If it wasn't for you I would still be suffering from the problems that you have been able to resolve with your patient treatment and also sense of humour and understanding".
Best wishes, Steve from Whitby.
"I went to hypnotherapy to seek help for a phobia that I have had for as long as I can remember and I thought I was going to have it forever. When I went to Alan I was skeptical however I was greeted with a lovely, chatty gentleman who made me feel very at ease and after my first session with him I saw a drastic improvement in my phobia. I had 3 sessions and my phobia has disappeared and I can now live without the limitations that my phobia caused me. I never thought it would be so easy to get rid of but it was. I would highly recommend Alan to anyone".

Session fees have been maintained at their present level for the last four years.
Free initial consultation. Stop smoking is £120, including a follow-up session. All other treatments are £60 a session.
Please note: Most clients pay in cash, although card payments can be taken.
Cheques are not accepted.
For best results it is important that clients are disciplined in keeping appointments. Where there is a programme of sessions to be completed, it is recommended that weekly attendance is recommended.
Hypnotherapy can provide a relatively quick solution to many issues. Nonetheless, clients should be realistic in their expectations. Equally the therapy should not be regarded as a 'quick fix' without involvement by the client. As with all 'talking therapies' it is also not realistic to provide a rock-solid guarantee of success every time. Many factors will affect the end result, as each client is of course unique.
Please note at least 24 hours notice of a missed appointment should be given. Otherwise, as is normal in professional practice, a cancellation fee will become payable.
All sessions are by pre-appointment only. Appointments can occasionally be made outside of normal working hours (after 5pm and on Saturdays).
Free parking (2.5 hours) is available close by at Sainsbury's Supermarket, or free for up to 3 hours on some local streets.
You can enter the Scarborough Hypnotherapy building in complete privacy.
There is no receptionist to ask you questions, just take a seat in the comfortable waiting room.
For ease of access, the Practice is situated on the ground floor and has wheelchair access. Alan will normally see you immediately. Appointments are arranged so as not to keep you waiting.
