A public Lecture by Dr Phil Erwin

Hypnotherapy can provide clients with a safe, effective and rapid means to make changes in their lives.  My professional background and experience enables me to keep informed and understand at a deep level the relevant psychological research on hypnotherapy, ensuring that my clients get the maximum benefit and vale out of  every single hypnotherapy session on whatever issue


As a professional psychologist I seek to uphold the highest standards of conduct and ethics in my hypnotherapy practice.  All clients are treated positively and with respect.  All consultations are confidential.  I aim to serve Southport, Formby Ormskirk, Crosby, Maghull and surrounding areas in Merseyside and Lancashire, though I do have clients coming from considerably further afield.
