About Your Practitioner
Chris Holmes BA(Hons) SQHP HPD DipCAH MNCH
My name is Chris Holmes and I have been a full-time professional hypnotherapist since August 2000.
I absolutely love what I do. Most clients are new to hypnotherapy and do not know how much – and how quickly – hypnotherapy can help them. Wherever possible I will get rid of their problem in just one session, which naturally amazes people, especially if they have had the problem for many years.
Before I give the wrong impression – that I’m just blowing my own trumpet here – let me just assure you that I am not much good at doing anything else! I was delighted to discover that I seem to have a remarkable talent for hypnotherapy because prior to that I had no special talent for anything. Phew! A relief to find something I’m good at!
In a moment there’s more info about my professional qualifications and associations etc., for those that are interested but in my experience what most clients really want to know can be summed up by these four questions:
Is this guy genuine? Absolutely.
Is he registered and properly qualified? Certainly.
Is the service confidential? 100%.
Will it work? Contact me and explain what the problem is, and I’ll give you my honest opinion. No obligation. 0161-474-8120 or 07748 838 644 any time, any day.
Since launching Central Hypnotherapy in August of 2000, I have personally helped thousands of clients achieve their goals. Like many people, I had always been curious about hypnosis but my real interest in hypnotherapy developed after encountering theories in psychoanalysis during postgraduate studies at university.
My initial hypnotherapy training was with the respected Washington School of Clinical and Advanced Hypnosis, gaining their Diploma in Clinical and Advanced Hypnosis (DipCAH) in 2000. I remain committed to ongoing professional development and still enjoy doing research into various aspects of hypnotherapy and related subjects whenever time allows, as well as teaching on hypnotherapy courses from time to time myself. My guiding principle is the belief that becoming a true master of the art of hypnotherapy is a lifelong commitment.
Central Hypnotherapy Training and Publishing (CHTP) started in 2008, and has now developed into a personal tutoring and professional mentoring service, through which I pass on to dedicated individuals some of the knowledge and expertise I have acquired from the last thirteen years of practical hypnotherapy experience. There is nothing like having a personal tutor if you really want to excel, and this service is delivered with the professional assurance of my six years of lecturing experience in Higher Education (Manchester Metropolitan University 1993-1999) Hypnotherapy, of course, is much more interesting than anything I was teaching at university!
I am registered as a Senior Practitioner on the General Hypnotherapy Register.
Central Hypnotherapy has been consistently approved by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council annually since its inception in August 2000.
I am also proud to be a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists, the largest hypnotherapy association – and the best – in the world.
