Kevin PattonHypnotherapy hypnotherapist
Helping People to Live Well for Over 28 Years
When I was a boy, I studied for the priesthood and discovered that I did not wish to be part of an organised religion.
I drifted for a while, working in a circus and spent some time struggling with my demons (who were definitely not middle class and tame) before joining an alternative community, where I practiced Yang Style Tai Chi Ch'uan, Natural Dance, Contact Improvisation, Raja Yoga, Co-Counselling, Herbal Medicine and Gestalt Therapy.
Since then, I have worked extensively in the Public and Voluntary sectors supporting individuals and groups addressing issues such as Substance Use, Domestic Violence, Parenting issues, Anxiety, Depression, Problem-Solving, Personality Disorders and Psychosis drawing upon my training in CBT, DBT, Open Dialogue and Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy.
I am a Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist accredited by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council and the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council. A member of the General Hypnotherapy Register and the Association for Contextual Behavioural Science, I combine breath and body techniques from India and China with strategies and techniques grounded in empirical knowledge and guided by the best available scientific evidence.
I do this work because I want to help cultivate people's ability to live well, free from the tyranny of self-limiting thoughts, overwhelming emotions and self-defeating behaviours that suck the joy from our lives and make us feel small.
