My name is Elliott and I’m a professional hypnotherapist and the owner of Forthview Hypnotherapy. I specialise in working with clients to manage their anxiety, stress and confidence levels and develop the necessary strategies to handle everyday challenges.
I believe that all of us have the ability to improve our mental wellbeing so that we can start enjoying life again, free from the burdens of the past.
At my hypnotherapy practice I offer a safe and supportive environment to enable you to comfortably deal with the problem you wish to address so that you can look forward to a more positive future.
To help my clients when they need it the most, I integrate other modern therapy methods, such as Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and elements from Solution Focused Brief Therapy to create a tailor made approach to help with individual needs.
I am constantly updating my skills and and have completed training workshops on such diverse issues as life coaching, EMDR, NLP and various approaches to handling phobias and trauma. I use what I feel are the most up-to-date and effective techniques for bringing about personal change.
I chose this therapy for many reasons. It worked for me. Its techniques have been shown to be safe and effective in many research studies. It deals primarily with the symptoms you are experiencing in the here and now and looks to the future rather than focusing on your past. By changing the way you think about yourself and your life it changes the way you behave and the way you feel. It gives you the skills you need for change. You absorb positive suggestions for fast and lasting change. Unlike many ‘talking therapies’, it achieves results in weeks rather than years.
I work with a range of clients who face many different issues, from stress and anxiety to weight problems, from lack of confidence to overcoming fears. While we can’t change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life for a brighter future.
I trained with the Manchester College of Coaching and Hypnotherapy (MCCH) and obtained their Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy. This diploma meets and is accredited by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council criteria. I also have a Certificate in Coaching from the MCCH which I use especially when dealing with motivation and career issues.
I have further CPD training including a Certificate in Hypnotherapy from the Hampshire School of Hypnotherapy (HSOH) and I am also certified in their Hypno-Gastric Band weight loss system.
