Chris Calloway Hypnotherapist


Hi, my name is Chris Calloway

Choosing a therapist or coach that you feel you will be happy working with is the first step to achieving the changes that you are looking for.

I hope you find all the information you will need to help you decide that I am the right therapist for you.

To see my formal qualifications click  'My Qualifications' on your left. in the meantime here is a bit more about me.

I have lived and worked in Uxbridge and Hillingdon, West London for the last 12 years. I have always been involved in creative pursuits in music, art and interested in meditation and Buddhism. I worked in graphic design for many years and also wrote and recorded music. To keep fit and active I swim do Yoga and Aikido.

Aikido Chris CallowayWith my interests in creative pursuits I noticed the patterns in things more. The patterns in pictures or a piece of music. Humans are great at finding patterns and communicating ideas through patterns and symbols. Language is probably the best example of this.

I got interested in the patterns of people's thinking, where do good ideas come from. What gets people out of bed in the morning and motivates them to do what they do? And for me personally I wanted be doing more of what I enjoyed and less of what was just habit. 

I was always intrigued by hypnosis from what I saw on television and reading about it in books. As I read about people like Milton Erickson I found a whole new world of therapeutic interest. I first took a short course in Self-Hypnosis which fired my interest and then I started to read any books I could find on the subject.

I was then lucky enough to come across the internationally acclaimed Quest institute which offered the standard of training and integrity which I had been looking for. This is where I gained my qualifications in Cognitive Hypnotherapy but more importantly learned and practised the skills that I have today.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy MediaAs a graduate of the Quest Institute (who offers one of the most rigorous courses of its kind in this country), I have been extensively trained in the use of hypnotherapy, and have taken their Diploma in Cognitive Hypnotherapy and was one of the first three students to be awarded a distinction (DipCHyp).

I have also gone on to assist Trevor and Bex Silvester the founders at the Quest Institute.

As I continue on this path and as a member of the National Council of Hypnotherapy undertake to continuous professional development. I have been awarded the NCH Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) which is the first nationally accredited hypnotherapy qualification awarded by the NCFE National Awarding Body.

I have found that doing something well, consistently, is not an accident it is a process. What beliefs do we hold about ourselves? I love this Buddhist quote as it sums up that idea quite profoundly.
