Ian Ford

Counsellor in Bognor Regis

I live and work in Bognor Regis, where I share Mirage Health and Wellbeing [] with my wife, an HCPC registered Podiatrist. This has grown to include several therapists, enabling us to offer a comprehensive Complimentary Health service.

Background & Qualifications

I am a fully qualified and experienced Humanistic Counsellor and Hypnotherapist, registered member of BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists), Reiki Master, Reflexologist, and Crystal Therapist.

I gained my BA (Hons) degree at Chichester University, including practical placements with VACTS (drug and alcohol addiction) centre in Crawley, counselling students at Angmering High School, plus bereavement counselling at Chestnuts Children Hospice.

My studies continued with a Diploma in Hypnotherapy with the ISIS centre in Brighton.

My 'Energy Work' includes Reiki. I was attuned by Pam Mockridge of Haslemere, whose lineage to Dr Usui is through Mrs Takata.
Similarly, I trained in Crystal Therapy with Yvonne Diment of Arundel, whose lineage is to Lettie Vantol.

My Specialisms

Counselling and Hypnotherapy areas we help with include:

Giving up smoking
Losing weight
Overcoming phobias and fears
Relieving anxiety and stress
Overcoming depression and insomnia
Sports performance

Energy treatments are more subtle, fundamental and powerful than working at the purely physical level. Working with the Human Energy Field can involve auras, chakras or meridians. Therapies such as Crystal Therapy and Reiki are focussed on healing these energies. We may make a difference, enabling you to grow and develop on a physical, emotional or spiritual level. The best way to understand, is to experience this.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

As Hypnotherapist and Counsellor, I want you to lead the life you want. I want you to be able to leave behind unwanted lessons, experiences, habits and teachings. I want you to have peace of mind and to be content in your heart. I want you to enjoy your life.

As an Energy Worker, I would ask, ‘What is it, this pain or worry, that goes round and round', or 'What feelings or intuitions do you need to access or be comfortable with?' That way, we work towards your goals and needs.
