Envision Hypnotherapy is run by me, Gerry McAuley and I am 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 and Member of the Chartered Institute of 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 work 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 improvement and in addition to being a hypnotherapist and life coach, I continue to work as a management consultant, facilitator and business coach, mainly with “blue chip” organizations such as Unilever, Roche and Merck.
What pretty much 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 and for that reason my sessions last 1.5 hours rather than the standard 1 hour model of most hypnotherapists. (* results of course may vary from person to person)
I am no quick fix, one size fits all peddler of empty promises. I like to think I have an approach that is highly professional and makes a difference (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 other skills, tools and experiences that I can draw on. Being professional to me is more about the small p rather than big P i.e. being highly skilled and effective while continuously seeking to improve rather than sitting on one’s laurels.
I tailor everything I do to best meet each of my clients’ needs, their unique situation and personality. I especially like helping people to learn how to continue helping themselves after our work together is done. Hypnosis is a way to change how someone thinks, acts and feels in ways that are useful to them. It is all about helping someone to be free of whatever may be stopping them from having the happy and fulfilling life they are looking for.* And so, if they wish to learn, I often teach my clients self-hypnosis so they can continue to help themselves to get the life they want.
