About Stephen Rigby

Having run a full time Hypnotherapy and Life Coaching practice in central Guildford since 2002, I have assisted people with many issues including stopping smoking, fears, anxiety, panic, weight, habits, relationships and medical issues like IBS and chronic pain. I offer free initial consultations in Guildford where you can discuss your requirements and find out more about the process of hypnotherapy before making a financial commitment.

If you have a question about hypnotherapy and how it can help or you would like to book an appointment, please email or ring me and I will be happy to be of assistance.

You can receive hypnotherapy in two locations: my main practice in Guildford (which has plenty of off-street parking and is less than a 10 minute walk from the main railway station) and a secondary practice at the Holistic Health Centre in central Woking.

My approach to therapy is “down to earth” with no promotion of spiritual or “New Age” theories. Your hypnotherapy may include many different protocols, some traditional and some modern; these include Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy techniques and both forms of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, NLP (Classic Code and New Code, as taught by John Grinder: one of the co-creators of NLP).

My intention with therapy is to help you create the positive change that you have come to me to achieve. Despite the fact that many of my clients experience dramatic improvements, I do not offer miracle cures as any change requires effort on the part of the person changing. With issues that require ongoing effort, ongoing support is available but for most people one to four sessions of hypnotherapy is usually all that is required.

I receive referrals from dentists, doctors and consultants. I am also the Hypnotherapist at the Surrey Park Clinic (a private medical practice specialising in hormonal and fertility issues based in Guildford).

My training, work experience and any achievement

My initial training in Hypnotherapy gave me a foundation in Analytical and Cognitive Hypnotherapy and Integrative Psychotherapy. The qualification I received was externally accredited by the NCFE. External accreditation is a mark of quality for any further education qualification.

My professional registration body, the General Hypnotherapy Register (the largest in the UK) requires a programme of Continuing Professional Development (CPD). I have always exceeded the training requirement. As part of my CPD, I have added an Advanced Certificate in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy and other NCFE accredited qualifications including a Certificate and Diploma in Life Coaching and the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD).

My foundation in NLP was obtained during my initial training and I have added to this with many hours of additional training; much of it with John Grinder one of the co-creators of NLP.

I am also a licensed practitioner in IEMT (Integrated Eye Movement Therapy)

I am a senior registrant with the General Hypnotherapy Register and hold the SQHP (Senior Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice) as awarded by the GHR.
