Interview with John Patching

What qualifications do you have and what’s your experience?”

I am a qualified Life Coach, Hypnotherapist and NLP Practioner. I am accredited and registered by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC) and the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR). I am also a registered member of the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

I have enjoyed over 10yrs experience of working with people with a range of conditions including physical, mental, and emotional issues. I have been practising Meditation and Mindfulness for 15yrs and teaching for 5yrs, which has given me a profound and deep understanding of life and the world around us.

I have also personally transitioned from female to male and have a unique therapeutic understanding of Transgender Identity (Gender Dysphoria) and the processes involved.

“Why should I choose to work with you?”

I feel that it is very important to have a good, open and trusting rapport with my clients, also to connect with them in a deeply caring manner. I encourage my clients to work together with me, so we can uncover the causes of their issues thus enabling lasting, successful outcomes to be achieved.

I work with all aspects of the individual (mind, body, and spirit) ensuring there is a balance. I believe in helping my clients to master their mental processes to become the best version of themselves possible. I place great emphasis on enabling each individual to access the power within themselves to move forward confidently towards lasting well-being.

As well as working with clients with Gender Dysphoria and their friends/families, I also work with individuals with a range of issues including anxiety, stress and depression, loss of identity, sexuality, relationship issues, confidence and performance anxiety, lethargy and lack of motivation, insomnia, loneliness, trauma, grief and bereavement, and other health issues.

I use Advanced Hypnosis Skills, Neuro-linguistic Training, Life Coaching, LBL Regression, and Mindfulness Techniques, as well as Deep Cleansing and Rejuvenation at a Spiritual Level.

I believe that empowering the individual through teaching them techniques such as Mindfulness helps them to achieve long term well being once therapy has ended.

“How will I benefit from working with you?”

I will work with you throughout your transition, helping you to discover who you are and develop into a confident and integrated individual. Whatever you need I will be there to support you – whether it is changed to your physical appearance; finding and deciphering information; a shoulder to cry on, or deep psychological work that enables you to fully accept your life and the integration of both parts of your gender.

How do you offer therapy?

I offer my services online via Skype, as this allows us to speak in the comfort of your own home.
