Brookhouse Hypnotherapy (London): Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Counselling and Coaching
Brookhouse Hypnotherapy was established in 1989 and is one of the most successful therapeutic practices in the UK. From its Manchester base it was decided to make the practice into a national practice having offices in various centres in the UK, some staffed by Shaun Brookhouse, others staffed by clinicians trained or personally approved by him. The experience of the practitioners at Brookhouse Hypnotherapy mean that you can consult a therapist at one of our centres with confidence.
Shaun and Fiona in addition to their clinical work, also train therapists, coaches and supervisors. Shaun is also the International Affairs Officer and is on the Board of Advisors of the National Guild of Hypnotists, the largest and oldest hypnosis society in the world. Shaun and Fiona were both also part of the panel that set the National Occupational Standards for Hypnotherapy.
Our of views reflect a respect for and tolerance of diversity. We apply the same criteria of respect, empowerment, authenticity, etc. that we have for our clients, to ourselves personally and professionally. We believe in human uniqueness; a holistic need to balance intellect, spirit, emotions and the body; individual autonomy and responsibility; fundamental innocence; and the importance of a shadow side. We believe that in hypnotherapy, counselling and psychotherapy the therapeutic relationship is the main agent of change that the practitioner has any influence on, so who we are is crucial to the well-being of our clients.
We see the therapeutic relationship as one of shared responsibility and view transference and counter-transference as a valuable form of communication that takes many forms, including body language and non-verbal communication, and does not necessarily imply pathological aspects.
