Nigel Magowan - Cheshire Hypnotherapist
Nigel Magowan - Psychotherapist UKCP, BACP and GHR Registered
Since 2002 I have regularly helped people deal with a wide variety of emotional and behavioural issues including anxiety and panic attacks, low confidence and self-esteem, public speaking anxiety, interview anxiety, insomnia and sleep disorders, OCD, eating disorders, trauma, addictive behaviours, depression, weight issues, anger, stress, changing habits, relationship issues, feeling directionless, IBS, and pain management.
Don't see what you are looking for, then do please get in touch to discuss your requirements. My in-depth training and experience has given me the knowledge and flexible skills to help you work through many psychological issues.
I am a both a BACP registered and UKCP accredited and registered psychotherapist, and integrate psychotherapy and counselling with Clinical Hypnotherapy, CBT, NLP, EMDR, Life Coaching, and Stress Management. The services I offer can be tailored to your individual or company needs, and range from private therapy and coaching sessions, through to group training and workshops.
I've been in full-time private practice as a therapist since 2002 and offer both brief therapy (short-term psychotherapy, clinical hypnotherapy, CBT, EMDR, NLP and life coaching. Typically 8-12 sessions), as well as longer term psychotherapy and counselling for complex issues.
I don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach as everyone is different. Therefore I integrate all my training, skills and experience to produce a treatment process that is unique to you and your personal needs. Helping you to make positive inner changes, ultimately empowering you to help yourself.
As well as my psychotherapy training, I also have extensive training in various styles of hypnosis and hypnotherapy, including traditional and indirect approaches, Ericksonian Hypno-Psychotherapy and conversational hypnosis. I have received additional specialist training in working with addictions, anger, shame, treating IBS, insomnia and sleep disorders, managing pain, stress management techniques, and nature-based therapies (Ecotherapy), EMDR, CBT, human development, psychopathology, and Ethical Practice. I am also trained to teach mindfulness skills. My psychotherapy training was with the UKCP accredited Beeleaf Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy in London.
As you think about the things you want to achieve in life, what is stopping you from achieving them now? If you could find an easy way to overcome the limitations which hold you back from achieving the success you deserve in life, wouldn't you be just a little bit curious to find out more?
Contact me now to discuss the changes you'd like to make.
I am also available for online psychotherapy via Skype. This is useful if you are too far away to travel to see me face-to-face, or if you have issues that make travelling difficult.
