About Me

A bit about me - Dr. Richard Wain

I will have been a clinical hypnotherapist for 31 years in August 2018. I trained in "Old School" techniques but have always improved what I do by incorporating cutting-edge knowledge from Neuroscience, Positive Psychology, Evolutionary Psychology and other research areas.

Working with how the brain actually works and not some out-of-date approach works wonders for children.

I am going to pose you a question - Would you take your chid to see a surgeon still using methodologies a hundred years old? I would not. That is why I use or create the latest techniques available.

I do not take you child back in time to relive and analyse a problem. Their brain processe information differently to adults. Doing analytical work usually does more harm than good.

I was a fully qualified teacher of science and A Level Psychology since 1994 and only gave up classroom teaching in July 2017. I understand children quite well. During this time I have taught many children with multiple problems.

Not only that I have seen hundreds for similar problems for therapy.

Other information: I have 2 children, 4 step children - so understand all the emotional turmoil that situation can cause. Also, at the time of writing 9 grandchildren. So I have quite a bit of 'real life practice' under my belt.

I am the founder of the Children's Hypnotherapy training programme. A post-graduate Level 5 course for clinical hypnotherapist to learn how to work with children in hypnotherapy.

I have undergone an Enhanced DBS check for teaching children in state schools. Enhanced Certificate No. 001562688832.
