Tom Bailey - Cheshire Hypnotherapist
Tom Bailey (MA; BA (hons); Dip CP; Dip Hyp CS)
The hypnotherapy I practice is gentle and collaborative. It begins with deep relaxation, which most clients find very enjoyable.
Once the conscious mind is quietened, through this relaxation process, the subconscious can be addressed. It is in the subconscious that unwanted habits and fears reside - the urge to smoke or to eat unhealthy food, for example.
Hypnotherapy can help clients to recognise, and overcome, long-standing and deep-rooted issues. Whether your issue is performance anxiety, fear of travel or social phobia, hypnotherapy can help you.
I offer a fifty-minute consultation, free of charge. This session is used to discuss your presenting issues and my own background and practice. In addition, I will relieve any fears you might have about hypnotherapy. At its end, we will discuss a treatment package, if appropriate. This may include hypnotherapy, counselling or a combination of the two.
Note that I will want to speak to you on the phone, before arranging an initial consultation. This is in order to determine your level of commitment to stopping smoking or losing weight, for example.
I believe that high quality therapies should be available to all. Therefore, lower cost hypnotherapy is available for those on low income. Please see my website for further information, contact details and testimonials.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been running my own successful practice in Chorlton for five years. Previously, I spent some years working with clients in addiction. Prior to that, I worked with clients suffering chronic mental health problems.
Helping people to stop smoking is a specialism. I smoked for over 25 years - hypnotherapy helped me to stop, for good. In 2015, I hosted a free "Stop Smoking" hypnotherapy event in Chorlton.
I hold a diploma (distinction) in hypnotherapy from Chrysalis, an accredited professional training scheme. I am also a fully-qualified counsellor. I hold a BA in Philosophy from the University of Essex and MA in English Literature, from the University of Manchester.

"Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live" (Dorothy Thompson).
Fear is often kept alive through inaction. When we take positive action, we often discover that fear begins to disappear.
Making contact is the next step in banishing your fear.
