Steve Neesam BA (Hons) - Hypnotherapist & Psychotherapist
I am an experienced Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist.
"Can you help me"?
I can help with a wide range of issues such as specific anxiety or generalised anxiety disorder, phobias, depression and panic disorder. I understand how these can take over your life and it is very common to feel that the situation is hopeless. Most clients that I see have come to me as a last resort having tried many other things to help them. By working together at the pace that is right for you, real and meaningful change can happen within you as you gain release from these once overwhelming feelings and thoughts.
I am also experienced in helping people to quit smoking through hypnosis.
You can contact me through this page, via my website or by phoning 01323 508811/07835 518115.
"How do I get started with you"?
Just call or email me and we will have an initial chat over the phone. This allows me to more fully understand how I can help you and what you want from therapy. It also gives you a chance to get a feel as to whether I am the right therapist for you.
We can then book in our first session and if you're happy to continue we'll set up a second session and then arrange to meet weekly or fortnightly as appropriate.
