Hello, my name is William Burkitt. Thank you for taking the time to explore my hypnotherapy practice.
I am a fully qualified hypnotherapist, and I'm accredited by the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) and registered with the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
Finding the right hypnotherapist for you is a very important but also challenging decision. With that in mind, I have created this page to show you both who I am and the mission I am pursuing through William Burkitt Hypnotherapy.
Who are we? Why are we here? Where do we come from? Where are we going?
I believe that the answers these profound and elemental questions can be discovered by exploring the vast and mysterious depths of the mind
Questions such as these compelled me to discover how the mind works, and why the mind is the way it is.
I initially embraced these interests by completing BSc and MSc degrees in Psychology at the University of Lincoln.
Later, I discovered the power of hypnotherapy, and I witnessed first-hand the incredible changes that that people could achieve using the techniques I now practice with my clients.
I am extremely passionate about helping others, and I am a strong advocate for the benefits of hypnotherapy.
I believe that there is a spark of potential within you, and within each and every human being, that, if nurtured, can lead to a life of happiness, fulfilment, meaning and personal transformation.
Furthermore, it is my belief that you possess an inner potential, strength, wisdom and resilience to overcome any obstacle, and the personal power to define and create any life you want to live.
These beliefs define who I am as a person and as a hypnotherapist.
I see the magnificent potential that resides within all of my clients, and I always try to nurture that potential so that they may become anything they want to be, and achieve anything they want to achieve.
In addition, I provide a safe, secure, comfortable, calming and non-judgemental environment within my practice, and I always treat my clients with the respect, professionalism and courtesy that they deserve.
We live in challenging times in every way: politically, economically, socially, and last but certainly not least, psychologically.
Indeed, there is a well-documented mental health crisis spreading throughout all corners of society.
An ever increasing number of people suffer from problems such as depression, anxiety and stress. Though the historical stigma attached to such problems is gradually disappearing, there is still an immense amount of work left to do and people left to help.
However, there are also many people suffering in silence from more vague and elusive feelings, such as feeling a lack of purpose, meaning, or fulfilment. Feelings such as this are difficult to explain, and are often ignored, suppressed or belittled. Because of this, people rarely reach out for help, and are left frustrated, angry, unhappy and disempowered.
The great tragedy is that less and less help is available to those who need it most.
One of my primary goals is to use the power of hypnotherapy to help those in need. The central mission that defines William Burkitt Hypnotherapy is to spread awareness of the benefits of hypnotherapy, and to establish hypnotherapy as an efficient, effective, evidence-based treatment for people to improve the quality of their lives.
I dream of a better world, one where every person is provided with the opportunity to achieve their inner potential, and to cultivate a full life defined by satisfaction, happiness and fulfilment. I will do everything I can to realise this dream.
