John Hirst – Counselling, Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy and Reiki
John studied philosophy and psychology at the University of Sussex before commencing a career in higher education. He trained as a counsellor with the Marriage and Personal Counselling Service in Hong Kong working for the service for 10 years part-time as he was a full-time lecturer. At this time he was also initiated as a reiki practitioner by Barbara McGregor.
Returning to the United Kingdom he qualified as a hypnotherapist with the National College of Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy and became a reiki master. He has been practicing hypnotherapy, counselling and reiki at the Eastbourne Clinic of Natural Medicine since 1996.
From his background in counselling John brings to hypnotherapy a knowledge of many approaches to therapy. He uses insights and techniques from behavioural, psychodynamic, humanistic and transpersonal psychotherapies as appropriate for the client and the issue being addressed.
John’s role as a therapist is helping the client to reach a better understanding of himself or herself in order to move forward. Therapy is empowering for those receiving it.
Reiki is a powerful healing tool that can help people at many levels. John recommends it to clients particularly when there is a stress related health issue that needs treatment.
