Graham Old - Solution-Focused Hypnotist & Well-Being Coach
I provide a solution-focused hypnotherapy and coaching service. Our approach is client-centered, contemporary and caring. We can also offer training in self-hypnosis and relaxation.
I am a qualified Life Coach and a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. I am fortunate enough to have been trained by some of the best minds in hypnotherapy, including world leaders in Direct Hypnosis and Ericksonian hypnotherapy. Ericksonian hypnotherapy is indirect and typically resembles counselling, more than the cheap entertainment of Stage Hypnotists.
I am also only one of two licensed virtual Hypno-Band Weight Loss System practitioners in Northampton. See http://www.hypnosisnorthampton.com/hypnoband for more info.
I have a practice based at the Abington Clinic, within the prestigious Abington Health Complex, where I can offer hypnotherapy, acceptance and committment therapy, solution-focused breif therapy and training in mindfulness.
We can help you quit smoking, learn to relax, manage pain, lose weight, conquer phobias and anxieties, improve relationships and deal with stress. We can work with individuals, (men, women and children), couples and groups.
With a background in pastoral counselling and a long career in family support, mental health and learning difficulties, I have developed a compassionate, caring and contemporary approach to helping people live their lives to the fullest.
We also provide Hypnosis Training.

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
Remove Persistent Life blockages
Future Life visualisation and construction
Finding Personal Happiness
Please note: we only practice regression on rare occasions. Most of our clients find future life progression more rewarding than past life regression!
I am a Certified Stress Management Consultant and well-being coach. That means
I specialise in Stress, Anxiety and Depression and related health and lifestyle issues such as smoking, drinking and weight-loss.
Although many therapists and hypnotists may be able to help you in such areas, there are not many who specialise in the area of health and well-being. There are even fewer who have been there and can offer genuine empathy, understanding and strategies that work.
In recent years, I have developed the widely acclaimed 'Therapeutic Inductions' approach. I am also one of the developers of BRIEF HYPNOSIS, a model of hypnosis that incorporates insights from Solution-Focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
We believe in moving beyond problems and leading people into a more satisfying future. We focus on people, not problems - and would much rather progress you into your preferred future, than regress you into a traumatic past.
