Not All Hypnotherapy Is The Same & All Hypnotherapists Are Not The Same:
Your Professional Hypnotherapist is:
My good self, namely, Douglas Clark a Certified Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist, Master Hypnotist & Certified Psychotherapist and I've successfully helped lots of people in Leamington Spa & Warwickshire plus the surrounding areas to make massive life changes for the better!
A Little Bit About My Life:
My Mission is to be of service to you, to really help others because I too know just how important it is to manage one's stress and be the best we, that we can truly be!
You see in my life, I have been a Broker, plus a Secondary School Teacher and Cross Curriculum Manager before realising that I was in Burnout owing to a busy work life plus a very challenging home life.
Ultimately this led me to having to radically rethink my whole life!
I left my successful teaching career and decided to train as a Therapist choosing Therapeutic Hypnosis and Psychotherapy as my chosen path.
Becoming a Carer to My Father:
Just as I was finalising my first diploma in Clinical Hypnosis and Psychotherapy my Father became ill with age related blindness and subsequently dementia. Thus I found myself becoming his Sole Carer! I cared for him for over 12 years, he only needed to go into Care for the last seven weeks of his life.
During that time of Caring, after successfully passing my first diploma in Clinical Hypnosis and Psychotherapy in 2004, I decided to work with charities helping those suffering from anxiety conditions and phobias from 2005.
Passing Advanced Diplomas
I still managed to complete Advanced Diplomas in Clinical Hypnosis and Psychotherapy as well as NLP conducting the vast majority of my professional training, in the earlier years of my caring role and then in latter years after my Father's passing.
My Clinics in Therapeutic Hypnosis & Psychotherapy:
In addition I set up and ran my Leamington Spa Clinic from 2006 which was a busy Clinic, first in Warwick Street, then in Regent Street. In 2018 I opened up another Clinic in Warwick.
Changing Times After My Father's Passing:
After my Father's passing I was rapidly developing all aspects of my Clinics as in the later years of his life I had, had to scale back my Clinic work to look after him much more.
Re-homing a Wonderful Dog:
One wonderful blessing, during caring for my Father, was that I re-homed a beautiful dog who had been trained as a Therapy Dog and he provided both myself and my Father with much love and happiness throughout the years. Unfortunately he passed over in the same year as my Father.
Life Experience Makes a Great Therapist:
I hope you can see, that I have much life experience plus I have professional careers behind me, even before entering therapy work. This all assists me in being a caring plus skilled Therapist.
Above and beyond even that, I hope you get a flavour of my life, my own challenges, how I responded to them and my willingness to help others. It has most certainly been a very challenging seventeen years but equally one filled with growth in maturity and in life.
Of course responding to the Pandemic and making the decision to move to Online Therapy has been another significant challenge too.
I fully believe in giving and in giving, one will receive. True happiness lies in helping others and therapy work if done well, really should be about allowing the Client or Patient to be the best they can be, with appropriate professional help.
If you decide to choose me as your Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist, it will be my pleasure to assist you to the very best of my abilities.
