Since the pioneering work of Sigmund Freud about 100 years ago, psychotherapy has evolved to include a wide variety of models and methods such as counselling, psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, gestalt therapy and hypnotherapy. Whatever techniques and methods are used, however, the most important elements are the rapport and trust between client and therapist, and the willingness to work towards change.
We all have problems and difficulties in our lives and usually cope with them from day to day, but often the methods we use to cope are quite unhealthy.
We tend to avoid our problems, and the emotions that go with them, and turn to other things to distract us, or make us feel better, for a while. Instead of hiding from your problems and your emotions, psychotherapy is all about facing them, understanding them, and taking decisions and actions to change them. In other words, looking at your past and present, to create a better future.
Have you ever found yourself staring into space, so absorbed in your own thoughts that you've missed several minutes of the TV programme you were watching, or, when driving, found that you can't remember the last few minutes of your journey? If so, you've been in a light “trance state", otherwise known as hypnosis.
This is a completely natural phenomenon, which can be induced using a range of different methods. Don't expect the “swinging watch" though, I don't know anyone who uses that these days! The therapist can then deepen the trance to a dream-like state where they can bypass your conscious mind and communicate directly with your subconscious mind.
This does not mean that you are “in their power", and you cannot be made to do anything that goes against your principles. Forget what you may have seen in “hypnotic" shows on stage and TV; that's showbiz, and is only intended for entertainment.
I am an experienced mediator, having trained with Real Justice (Now the International Institute of Restorative Practices UK), and managed a team of mediators at Newham Youth Offending Team from 2003 - 2007, where I was also a member of the Family Group Conferencing steering committee.
In that time I facilitated many mediation conferences and meetings, and gained much experience in working with families, communities and businesses to resolve conflict.
If there is conflict in your family, with neighbours, or involving your business or organisation, I have the knowledge, the skills, and the insight to help change happen.

I have had a dog phobia for as long as I can remember, and it began to effect my day to day life. I decided to try hypnotherapy and found Peter a calming and relaxing person to work with. I received a total of 4 sessions, 3 hypnotherapy sessions, and 1 exposure/flooding session. He built my confidence, so I am now able to be around dogs without feeling the surge of panic. These sessions have provided me with the courage to want to be around dogs to further build my confidnece. Therefore I would recommend Peter, as his professional and friendly nature was paramount for me to feel safe and confident in order to face my phobia.
