“It is always an exciting and humbling experience to see the positive results people achieve due to Hypnotherapy. Every time I guide someone through hypnosis I feel privileged they have chosen me to share this amazing experience.”
I have a fascination with how consciousness works and particularly with the peculiarities of the human mind. Hypnosis is able to reach beyond our conscious analysis of our world and touch the deeper parts of the mind and affect change. This is what excites me and motivates me to use hypnosis to help people.
When I am not working as a Hypnotherapist I have many interests. I have been playing bass guitar for over 35 years which I find to be tremendous fun. I have a hobby of writing science fiction. My collection of short stories is available on Amazon and my first novel will soon be published. I love a good film and I have put together a modest home cinema.
My name is Simon Garfield Bown. I’m a fully qualified hypnotherapist, I am registered with the National Council for Hypnotherapy, I’m on the General Hypnotherapy Register and I’m with the Complementary and National Healthcare Council. I help people with a range of issues including smoking cessation, anxiety, stress, weight loss, phobias and pain management.
I studied at the Anglo European College of Therapeutic Hypnosis where on the course I did over 160 hours of class room time and many case studies. I’m proud to say the National Council for Hypnotherapy described my 78,000 word portfolio as exceptional.
Occasionally people ask me why I have called my practice Simon Garfield Hypnotherapy and not Simon Bown Hypnotherapy. The reason is that throughout my life people have often misspelt my surname. Usually as Brown but also sometimes as Bowen. This makes finding my Hypnotherapy practise much less likely. So I decided to use my middle name, Garfield. In case you’re wondering where I got that name it is from the cricketer Garfield Sobers.
If you would like to know more about how we would work together please feel free to contact me. I offer a free 30 minute consultation where we can discuss your issue and you can ask me questions about the Hypnotherapy process.
“Simon Garfield Bown has been an exceptional student of hypnotherapy and has now gone on to become a fine, highly skilled professional in this field. His depth of knowledge matches his practical proficiency and he has a very warm and humble manner that is assuring and comfortable to be around. I highly recommend Simon.”
Adam Eason, Hypnotherapist, Author and Principal of The Anglo European College of Therapeutic Hypnosis
