Dave Hall

Hello, my name is Dave Hall.

For several years I struggled with anxiety and panic. I know and understand what it feels like to have those negative thoughts running around your head. I know how uncomfortable and scary the physical symptoms of anxiety can be and the impact this can have on your life.

Eventually, I reached a point where I felt my life was severely limited and I sought the help of a hypnotherapist. This was a hugely transforming experience for me for which I will be forever grateful.

Hypnotherapy helped me and it could help you too!

I am a fully qualified and insured clinical hypnotherapist having gained both my Diploma in Clinical and Advanced Hypnosis through the UK Academy of Therapeutic Arts and Science as well as my Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma. I am a registered member of the National Council of Hypnotherapy (NCH) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

I’ve had a long and successful career in education, as a teacher of Chemistry and broad Science across the 11-18 age range. I’ve had a number of roles in leadership and management; most recently as an Associate Headteacher in a Multi Academy Trust and I have the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH).

Phoenix Hypnotherapy

I can’t change the world around you but I can work with you to change the way that you deal with the ups and downs of life.

That’s why I founded Phoenix Hypnotherapy because I believe that everyone has the capacity to exceed their potential, to live the life they want to and I am committed in helping you in Rising to Change.

Through my professional and personal life I have developed a range of skills that enable me to have a positive impact, not least in counselling, coaching and mentoring others to be successful themselves. It would be fair to say that I have learned as much about my own self-improvement through what others have taught me as I have taught and influenced others. This is an important value for me as a hypnotherapist, that working with my clients is both a partnership and has to be based on absolute trust.

In addition to hypnotherapy, I will often use a range of approaches drawn from areas such as Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) as well as coaching and mentoring. I draw parallels in how I work as a teacher in particular, recognising that there is no single ‘right path’ or ‘magic wand’ rather there are a range of strategies and interventions that are available to me that can be tailored to meet the needs of each individual client to support their improvement.

In working with you I adhere fully to the Codes and Ethics of the National Council of Hypnotherapy and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, both of which I am a registered member. I ensure we work in partnership through;

  1. Building empathy and having an accurate understanding of your needs.
  2. Always having a positive regard for you so as to act in your best interests. We can challenge how we behave but we all deserve to be treated as a human being.
  3. Being non-judgmental.
  4. Recognising that you make your own choices.
  5. Knowing that we are all capable of change and striving to exceed our potential.

I look forward to working with you and helping you in Rising to Change

Here’s to your brighter future!
