Peter Peterson

Hypnotherapist in Iron Acton, Bristol

I am Peter and I am passionate about helping people to overcome the challenges that hypnotherapy and psychotherapy can conquer.

I have always been fascinated that most of the things that hold us back or cause us problems are actually produced by our own minds and our interpretation of the world. I have seen many clients and although what I do isn't magic I am often amazed that the results of you changing your perspective can be magical and life transforming.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses clinically proven techniques of Hypnotherapy, NLP-Neuro Linguistic Programming and CBT -Cognitive Behaviour Therapy tailored to meet your needs. By partnering that approach with Psychotherapy, I can offer a truly blended therapy that helps my clients to make significant life changes, resolve unwelcome habits and create positive thought patterns at a subconscious level in a relatively short space of time.

Making the decision to find help can be a challenge in itself - perhaps you don't want anything ‘on the record' that might affect your future; perhaps you have tried an approach where you talk about the problem so much that it sets you back each session, or perhaps the sessions follow almost a checklist of things to do that aren't tailored to your individual needs.

People often come to me because I offer a confidential, ‘Off the record' approach, I am highly qualified in multiple disciplines, I select the best approach for you and although we acknowledge any challenges we work together to a more positive future.

I love working with people of all ages from teenagers and young adults to older clients (my oldest so far has been 95). Whatever you would like to change I would be delighted to see you and start the journey with you, whether it is lifting your self confidence, managing you anxiety, helping you cope with life or taking back control.

My Practice is in the tranquil and beautiful Old Rectory Clinic in Iron Acton, South Glos. where I offer a calm and relaxing environment that is the perfect setting for you to focus on making the positive changes to your life.

I am married with three grown up children, a collie dog, four chickens and a small flock of sheep.

My Specialisms

Hypnotherapy can help with a wide variety of issues. I specialise in helping people who are suffering from Anxiety, Sleeping problems, Stress, Depression, Confidence issues and Phobias. I am also experienced in helping clients overcome binge eating and emotional eating to help them develop healthier relationships with food. Additionally, I also help people suffering from Chronic/persistent pain and long term health issues such as IBS, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue syndrome.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I utilise Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, which combines hypnosis with elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), NLP, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy techniques. Every person I see experiences their struggles differently, and I therefore tailor my approach to the unique needs of every client, ensuring that they receive the best, most appropriate and effective support to help them make the changes they want.
