Envision Hypnotherapy is run by Gerry McAuley. Gerry is a:
- Very professional, experienced and qualified hypnotherapist – Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy, GHR Registered;
- Qualified Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner who uses NLP tools and techniques as appropriate in my therapy and coaching work;
- Very experienced life coach and business coach;
- Management consultant too and a Member of the Chartered Institute Personnel & Development.
My road to becoming a hypnotherapist stretches back to the early 1980′s when I first discovered self hypnosis. It was through practicing self hypnosis and my professional work life as as a management trainer and change management consultant that led me to become an NLP Practitioner. I also trained as a life coach and from there it was a natural step for me to later train as a Hypnotherapist.
My background is in business and in addition to being a hypnotherapist and life coach, I continue to work as a management consultant and business coach, mainly with large “blue chip” organizations such as Unilever, Aviva and the Co-Operative Group.
What drives everything I do is my desire and ability to help people to change effectively and quickly, and to do so in way that is both right for them and long lasting. In fact I pride myself on getting great results quickly and for that reason my sessions last 1.5 hours rather than the standard 1 hour model of most therapists. This is good value for my clients works since they get to where they want to be sooner (and often cheaper than if they had gone elsewhere).
Yet I am no quick fix, one size fits all peddler of empty promises. I like to think I have a fresh, professional approach (well, at least my clients tell me so!). In addition to using the power of hypnosis and each client’s subconscious mind I have a good toolkit of skills, techniques and experience that I can draw on. Being professional to me is more about the small p rather than big P – having a highly skilled and effective approach and continuously seeking to improve rather than sitting on one’s laurels.
I tailor everything I do to best meet each client’s needs, their situation and how they are as a person. I especially like helping people to learn how to continue helping themselves long after our work together is done. Hypnosis is after all changing people’s minds and hearts for the better so that they overcome issues that are limiting their lives. And so, if they wish to learn, I often teach client’s self hypnosis so that they can continue change their lives for the better.
Some client testimonials…
To say Gerry saved my life would be an understatement. He not only saved it he turned it round completely! I’d suffered depression for most of my life and it had ruined several relationships and left me suicidal. After my first session with Gerry I was a changed man. Happy, relaxed and confident. After four sessions I was dancing and singing all day and enjoying life to the full. I cannot recommend Gerry’s services highly enough.
Gerry is highly recommended and very good at what he does, just one session helped me enormously. Thanks again and I would happily recommend his services to anyone.
Gerry’s a top bloke and that’s even before he works whatever magic he wields… I needed reprogramming and help with how things were (no details necessary!) and Gerry listened, heard, then helped. I know that he is just enabling me to do the work, but I find his approach and methods extremely valuable and easy to access. I still see him every now and again – just to have a good chat! Highly recommended.
After suffering needle phobia for many years and passing out at the mere sight of an injection I decided to try hypnotherapy before needing a large number of vaccinations for travelling. After just one session with Gerry I managed to go for my injections much calmer and stayed conscious throughout the jabs! Complete success!
Gerry’s sessions were perfect, just what I was after. Well worth the visit. Would recommend to anyone
After just 2 hypnotherapy sessions I have stopped smoking! This, after many previous unsuccessful attempts over the 30 years I was a smoker. The sessions were relaxing and enjoyable and I can thoroughly recommend Gerry as a hypnotherapist.
Gerry helped us out when my 11 year old daughter moved to high school. He was very sensitive in his approach to helping her overcome the issues she faced during a difficult time. It only took 3 or 4 sessions to make a real difference to Lucy’s attitude, and to improve her self confidence to a point where her problems started to go away. After a couple of months the issues faded away and she was back to her normal self. A year on and there are no signs of any of the difficulties she had returning. I know that the work Gerry did with her and the relaxed, unhurried manner in which he made her feel at ease made all the difference. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him to any parent with children that could benefit from hypnotherapy.
Gerry has helped me lots, both as a hypnotherapist and as a life coach. When life coaching he used his wide range of experience and pragmatism to help me find solutions that have worked well for me. He is very astute and genuinely interested in helping his clients to achieve results and grow through the process…… I also have had hypnotherapy with Gerry and I found it a very safe, comfortable and enjoyable experience and not at all like it appears on TV! The sessions were relaxing and have made a big difference. Even now, several months on, I feel the benefits every day. Highly recommended.
After having a severe nail biting habit from being a toddler and going down the route of over the counter treatments, my 11 year old daughter was finally able to break the cycle with the use of hypnotherapy by Gerry McAuley. Although some slight apprehension at first on her part, she was soon made to feel at ease by Gerry’s relaxed, friendly manner and now six months on we’re still thrilled with the results.
