Steve Carter Therapist
I have an MSc in Occupational Psychology, a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Mind coaching, and am a qualified NLP practitioner. I am the author of several books including my latest: How to Survive and Thrive in an Impossible World. I am regularly interviewed on radio and TV
Clinical Hypnotherapy is a proven technique for helping clients with a wide variety of psychological and physiological challenges. Forget the 'TV' version - this is not about mind control and you 'going to sleep'. you will remain fully aware and in control. Backed by thousands of research papers clinical Hypnotherapy is now shown to be effective in helping with growing number of challenges inc: Chronic Anxiety, PTSD, IBS, depression, pain management, lack of self esteem, OCD etc.
Face to Face sessions
I work 1:1 from my base in Derbyshire and post-covid restrictions I plan to offer face to face sessions in London as well. The number of sessions required can vary depending upon client needs and agreed after the first introductory session. Sessions normally last up to 90 minutes and our informal and discrete. It is usual for the client to engage in some reflection and activity between sessions
The online sessions are similar in structure and process as the face to face sessions but can be delivered anywhere in the world. (It is possible to blend both face to face and online sessions)
Sessions are conducted via Zoom and again are 60 - 90 minutes.
"Too often we are held back by our past. Through my global work as a performance psychologist and training in clinical hypnotherapy and NLP and a lifetime as a coach, I work with people who find themselves trapped in a style of life or state of mind from which they want to break free."
In a world where the only analgesic options presented are those that numb sensations with pills or procedures, these therapies (hypnotherapy) encourage a playful, powerful re-engagement with the world.

Therapeutic and Coaching Sessions
Using a unique approach co-developed with the renowned psychologist Dr Michael Apter I offer an approach that begins with your 'wholeself' - deepening your understanding of who you are and what you have to offer the world. This is a much more useful 'starting point' for change than searching around for goals that can feel vague and abstract. It sees your life as something you 'inhabit' and from which clear goals and choices can be made. A coaching programme is usually over 4 x 1 hour sessions and an be delivered fact to face or on-line.
Anxiety, Trauma and Therapy
Through a combination of clinical hypnotherapy and NLP, I can help you reduce and even overcome the debilitating impact of ongoing anxiety and trauma. The number of sessions required can depend upon the severity and origins of the problem and this is agreed upon after the initial session.
Many people suffer from low esteem and self-confidence which results in them never achieving the fulfillment in life of which they are capable. This is 3 session programme is a fast-track to the new you!
This is a program for controlling anger and preventing its destructive manifestations: Without anger management, your outbursts of hostility may eventually have catastrophic consequences. As with all my work I take a multi-stranded approach looking at the roots of the anger response, the triggers of the anger (not the same thing!) , the behaviours that result and the consequences that arise. Through a process of exploration and resolution we will work together to reduce and resolve the causes and implications of unwanted bursts of anger
I offer a solution-based approach to career decisions that considers lifestyle needs, and current and future expectations. I am particularly interested in helping people consider a 'life-shift' from one work style to another - whether that is a complete change in direction, ambition, or attitudes to work. This can include people transitioning into retirement. I hope I can help people who feel, blocked, stuck or simply confused! As a practising business and performance psychologist, I have over 30 years of experience in helping people work to a more rewarding and fulfilling life.

Steve is very skilled at identifying what is causing the issues you have by using non threatening questions and helps you to help yourself deal with them. He is very respectful to what you say. I would happily recommend Steve to anyone. His book is worth a read as well
I’m really positive about the whole process and am confident I’ll come out on the winning side.
