Profile of Duncan

Promoting mental well-being and good mental health have been a long-term passion for me having had a background as a manager in the voluntary sector working both in the areas of mental health and homelessness for about 10 years in London and Hampshire.

We all, as I have personally experienced, face challenges in our lives and sometimes these can be significant, get on top of us and have a detrimental effect on our life's quality. Good hypnotherapy is about helping change those perceptions and enabling us to move forward with a renewed self-confidence and self-esteem. You can be sure that in choosing me as your hypnotherapist, in my specialist areas, you are making a choice of a truly empathic therapist, some one who really does understand.


Whilst working in the voluntary sector I was trained in alcohol counselling and as a facilitator for the Pacific Institute's community based cognitive behavioural programme 'STEPS' (Steps to Excellence for Personal Success). I often make use of the principles of the STEPS course in the application of self-image, self-talk and goal setting in changing a client's self-perception and cognitive thinking.

Studying hypnotherapy and becoming a fully qualified hypnotherapist completing not just the Practitioner's Diploma gaining a Distinction with Merit but also the Advanced Practitioner's Certificate in Clinical and Strategic Hypnosis. Becoming GHR & National Regulatory Register registered and a NHSTA Directory member, was a natural progression.

There are certain issues such as pain management and reactive depression where a client should discuss the use of hypnotherapy with their GP first.

 The first part of the following video from YouTube certainly covers what we can perceive to be problems... the second part of the video demonstrates the therapeutic gains from an altered perspective on problems...and the value of a problem-solving approach rather than a problem-creating one...


My training was undertaken with the highly respected Brief Strategic Therapy & Clinical Hypnosis Foundation in London, achieving a Distinction with Merit in my Diploma, that was externally examined by the United Kingdom Clinical and Strategic Hypnosis Examination Board and is validated by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSc). I continued my hypnotherapy training with the BST Foundation successfully completing the Advanced Certificate in Clinical and Strategic Hypnotherapy.

I am a member of the NHS Directory of Complementary and Alternative Practitioners (No. 6578). I am also course author and tutor for the College of Integrated Therapies 'Treatment of IBS through Gut Orientated Metaphor'.

 I keep my charges reasonable for Hampshire 75 per 90 minute session as I work from home as well as having a clinic in Portsmouth.

Professional qualifications include being registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register with a General Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice and am a fully insured practitioner of Hypnotherapy and Smoking Cessation Therapy; being bound by the ethics and codes of conduct of the GHR.

Midway between Southampton, Portsmouth and Winchester and a Clinic in Portsmouth

I am a graduate with an Upper Second B.Sc. (Hons) and am based in the hamlet of Curbridge which is midway between Botley and Burridge in South Hampshire, convenient for Locks Heath, Whiteley, Bishops Waltham and Wickham as well as practising in Weybridge, Surrey.

My professional fees are 60 per 60 minute session
