My approach is very much solution focused.
OK, so there’s a problem, issue, challenge or goal.
Let’s identify it and work out what to do about it!
I believe that the client is the expert in what they want and what they need.
I am a facilitator in that process – a platform, teacher and confidant.
I don’t do anything to the client or even for them. I help them to help themselves.
Think of this work as like going to a Brain Gym and I am the PT (Personal Trainer).
I will help them get on track, stay on track and get brain fit.
More than that, they will gain brain stamina and resilience.
This is a solution focused toolkit for life!
Accordingly, I offer a bespoke and integrative mix of the very best research-based and clinically-proven
psychotherapeutic techniques.

WORKING WITH COUPLES, GROUPS AND FAMILIES
Please note, my work is Solution Focused from the outset.
Before booking, you will need to have already decided that you want to be together, stay together, live together, work together, whatever together...
You will also need to understand that you may need to change to make that happen.
This may take effort on your behalf - you will need to commit to me as well as to each other.
I do not arbitrate or allow ongoing tit-for-tat subjective or emotive analysis of what may have happened to date.
If this is understood and accepted, I am happy to work with you.
I offer a stable, neutral platform and a set of proven techniques for moving forward positively together.
As with the 1:1 clinical work, you will learn how to process and overcome the historical and residual challenges and how to deal with issues that may arise tomorrow, next week, next month, next year and ongoing.
This is a Solution Focused Toolkit For Life!
It is an investment in your future...

I am happy to discuss any or all of this in an Initial Consultation, with no obligation to carry on unless both or all parties are happy with the process outlined and offered.

You will soon realise that I care and that I genuinely have your best interests at heart.

GOOGLE AND YELL VERIFIED TESTIMONIALS INCLUDE
"I never knew I could be so happy!" (SM, May 2020)

"Gareth gave me a platform, a sense of purpose and a practice to pull myself together and to progress to new heights, never before achieved or even dreamed of, in both my personal and professional life!" (AB, June 2020)

"Gareth is amazing! His online appointment system is so easy and honestly is MUCH more convenient and comfortable to remain in your own home. You literally push a link, type your name and BOOM, you're at your appointment! I absolutely love the "Brain Lessons" before each session - the Science behind our brains is fascinating and he does an absolutely fantastic job of simplifying the terms so its easy to understand exactly what is happening in your brain. Also, the software Gareth uses for your digital appointment works better than the typical Skype or Zoom - no interruptions or dropped calls. I feel totally safe, respected and know that I'm in good hands! Highly recommend - there's nowhere else I'd go!" (EN, April 2020)

"I went to see Gareth about hypnotherapy for managing my emotions towards my tinnitus. After undergoing the hypnotherapy sessions with Gareth, I can strongly say that my attitude toward my problem had improved greatly. Through various techniques and methods in the sessions, I was able to detach my emotions from the direct problem, consequently enabling me to cope far better. During my sessions with Gareth, I had to go to university, during university my sessions continued online, the online sessions were extremely helpful and were very easy to take a part of. I would highly recommend Gareth and Alchemy Hypnotherapy." (TF, March 2020)

“This has been a wonderful experience for me. Through their enthusiastic and skilled approach, Alchemy Hypnotherapy has helped me manage anxiety and negative thoughts after a spell of serious illness and resulting treatments. I am more relaxed, sociable and confident. I also have more insight and clarity about my personal and professional goals. Thank you Alchemy Hypnotherapy for a very bespoke and positive experience!” (CW, January 2020)

“From my first session, I was aware that this would be something I'd never experienced in my life. It was the best decision I'd ever made. From being in the darkest place to coming out of the Hypnotherapy a new person, a better person, it makes me so happy to feel like me again. Thank you Alchemy Hypnotherapy for everything you've done for me!” (LS, December 2019)

“Alchemy Hypnotherapy has changed my life for the better. I am so grateful for the amazing help I received at a dark time in my life and I've gone from strength to strength since. Highly recommended team of warm and professional people who can actually help with issues holding you back in life.” (JD, October 2019)

“My son started seeing Alchemy Hypnotherapy due to ongoing issues with peers at school as well as anger issues. We have seen a complete change in our son who is getting along better with peers and teachers in school and his school work has drastically improved as well. We have seen a long-lasting improvement in our son's mental wellbeing as we haven't been for nearly a year but my son is still doing great, all thanks to the hard work and persistence from Alchemy Hypnotherapy. Couldn't thank them enough!!” (LiW, October 2019)

"He was very attentive and honest and I got a genuine feeling of understanding from Gareth. By the end of our first session I was very relaxed and I am looking forward to a positive outcome for the help I require from Gareth"
   
"Really enjoyed the experience, it is clear Gareth is passionate about the mind and his work. Looking forward to see what comes of future sessions"
   
"Gareth is a friendly soul and a session with him is a good chat, but his session is to focused on educating instead of giving you tools and steps to help yourself. Has a bit of a school feel to it, which made it for me a painful hour to listen too and I therefore didnt look forward to the next session. I saw Gareth as a professional all the way untill I had to depart from his therapy where to my dissapointment Gareth was more worried about Harley Therapy's rating algorithm, which would affect his ratings than how I was feeling as his patient and not even wishing me good luck or enquiring to why I was leaving. "
   
"One word , amazing . Gareth's approach was out of this world . I came in feeling so low and confused within a few sessions I started feeling myself . Thank you "
   
"Felt very comfortable "
   
"Great first session. Got a good first impression and a in-depth introduction of him and his method which gave me a good a idea of where we'll start and what the end goal is. After the session I felt certain of things sorting it self out in the long run. Looking forward for our future session and to follow my own progress. -Bjarke. "
