Hi, thank you for visiting.
I am Stephen Bate a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist specialising in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. This uses a combination of modern therapy techniques to enable people to regain control of their lives, giving them the confidence to make decisions and look positively for ways to change their thinking. I like the way that this combination can help clients achieve fast and lasting results, more than hypnosis alone.
I trained with Clifton Practice, which is considered to be the leading hypnotherapy clinic in the country, here I earned my Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH) and Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD) which is considered the gold standard for Hypnotherapists.
I am proud to be a member of the following professional bodies, the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH), National council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), these all ensure that their members are fully trained and follow strict codes of conduct.
I have always been fascinated with hypnosis and the power of our mind but it was only when I visited a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist that I truly appreciated how powerful it could be and it changed my whole perception. I now approach life with a completely different mindset. Being part of a client's journey to get them to this point too is a real privilege.
Having been born and raised in Chester, I now live in Stockport with my wife and two children. I enjoy taking long walks with my family around the Peak District and this also gives me an opportunity to practice some photography too.
I look forward to welcoming new clients and I am confident that together we can work to achieve the change in life you desire. I have helped my clients with a range of issues and enjoyed seeing them move forward in their lives in a positive manner.
