Geoffrey Schofield D.CBT. DHyp.
Professional Hypnotherapist in Derby, providing Hypnotherapy & Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in Derby.
The Alexander Practice is the business name of Geoffrey Schofield D.CBT DHyp, a qualified Professional Hypnotherapist in Derby, providing Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in Derby (CBT), Hypnotherapy and Stress Management in Derby, Nottingham, Leicestershire & Staffordshire (although clients do visit from further afield), located in a professional “easy to find” location with car parking and on a main bus route.
As a professional Hypnotherapist in Derby I offer free consultations (by appointment) which are totally confidential in their nature which will enable you to discuss with me your symptoms or problems. You are always welcome to bring a friend or relative along with you to the consultation.
“Hi Geoffrey, I wanted to send you a ‘Thank You’ message.
As you know, my problems had controlled me all my life, and in the end was making normal everyday living unbearable, but due to all your hard work and experience, the way I have been feeling is well on its way to disappearing. I have to thank you for persevering with me, when at times a ‘breakthrough’ was looking unlikely. It’s only through your patience and perseverance that this was eventually a success, so a massive ‘Thank You’.
What I want to say too, Geoffrey is that you always acted in a totally professional manner, but at the same time you were so kind, caring and compassionate towards my needs and feelings – all of these things were so important to me. Also, your honesty was second to none, again something which I very much appreciated.
Take care and again, THANK YOU.”
I have been in practice since 1999 and originally qualified as a Hypnotherapist. Hypnotherapy is an excellent way of helping you to relax, to allow you to let go of issues and to help change your way of thinking about yourself and the world around you in a much more positive and confident manner. It truly is an excellent therapy. That said, I also felt that my clients would also benefit from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) / Stress Management therapy too because the way you manage yourself and challenge your thoughts and behaviours during the week in between sessions will greatly enhance the speed in which you will recover / move on from your issues. I therefore underwent intense training with Dr David Kato (Retired) of Bristol – see http://nrah.co.uk/trainers/david-kato.htm and the result is that my therapy will allow you to become “the best that you can be” in the shortest amount of time.
I have always felt that therapy should have a beginning, a middle and obviously an end. My therapy is normally concluded on average in around 6 sessions (I will always give you an estimate during initial consultation). Compare this to other types of therapy such as Counselling or Psychotherapy where clients are often in therapy for 2-3 years (enough to bankrupt many people) and I’m sure you will agree this is favourable.
