About Me


I have a background in Holistic Therapy working as a Remedial Masseur for over 20 years. I qualified at the Royal National College for the Blind in 1986, with a secondary qualification from Craven College in 2000.


I have always looked to provide a balanced approach to my treatments, focusing equally on the possible psychological contributory factors as to why a physical presentation had started or kept re-occurring. A treatment would always include discussing with a client how: their thoughts about their physical problem, the presence of anger, depression or anxiety in their lives could be intensifying or prolonging their pain and discomfort. 


At the beginning of 2021, I decided to focus more on the psychological aspects of the treatments that I provide. I began studying Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and enrolled on a course provided by the Clifton Practice Bristol. I have now qualified and gained the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma and Diploma of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. I am registered with the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).


This was a journey I wished I'd started 20 years earlier.


What is Solution
Focused Hypnotherapy?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (SFH) is a type of ‘talking therapy'. It focuses on the present and desired changes for the future. SFH is only interested in the past for the positive memories, skills and resources which may be helpful establishing a solution and give it longevity. It is made up of two therapeutic approaches, Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy.


The client in collaboration with the therapist, via some Solution Focused brief styled questions establishes the solutions to the client’s issues. The therapist will ask clients to consider their preferred future, for instance asking solution-orientated questions. This enables the client’s possible solutions to become more obvious and gives the client a goal to work towards.

how can hypnotherapy help?

Hypnotherapy can help individuals experiencing...

  • Confidence and self-esteem issues. 

  • Symptoms of stress, low mood, anger and anxiety (including panic attacks), if necessary, in conjunction with medication

  • Physical issues such as, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) when it can help people to cope better with their symptoms

  • Problems with blood pressure

  • Chronic pain conditions. 

  • Specific phobias such as fear of spiders, water, flying, and public speaking can be minimized. 

  • Insomnia

  • Relationship/marital difficulties

       Also for people who;

  • Are suffering with migraine, 

  • Are attempting to stop smoking

I think Solution Focused Hypnotherapy has been a major part in helping me learn coping strategies. Richard is very professional in his delivery but still maintains the right amount of humility to engender open discussion.


His dedication to learning this therapy is reflected in his practice and I would be happy to recommend Richard to my friends and family.

It becomes blatantly obvious when working with Richard that he truly cares for his clients providing fresh energy and motivation each session to continually self-improve, which is incredibly powerful when conveyed to clients as it ignites their own passions to get stronger.

Richard hosts a confident and supportive session he creates a safe place for his client and is a pleasure to collaborate with. 

I feel more relaxed more cheerful and ready to face the day whilst the obstacles that i used to place in my path have become smaller, less over powering and i don't have to hide behind them any longer.

Thanks so much, it has been a life changer so far for me.
