 Paul Winterbottom (MA Oxford University)

Everyone can change – with the right help. I can help you succeed, using proven, evidence-based strategies, based around Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy. These are designed to achieve rapid results. The first session is FREE, confidential, and without obligation.

You can read about me, my approach, and the issues I can help with on this website. If you have any other questions please contact me.

I have returned to the UK from Shanghai, and from January 2018 I can see clients in Manchester and Online.

So, if you want to make a change in 2018, I can help.


These are some of the issues I can help with:

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy is a powerful combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness and Hypnotherapy. Evidence based strategies to help you make the changes you want in your life.

These include: dealing with anxiety and stress, phobias, unwanted habits and addictions, building confidence, setting and achieving goals at work and in personal life, and more. The strategies are powerful, because in all areas of our lives what we think, feel and do plays a central part in determining the outcome – and we can learn to gain greater control of these.

Our habits, no matter how ingrained, can be changed, and I can help you do this.

Plus, what you learn can be applied to other situations in your life. You acquire tools of lasting value.

If you are ready to change, contact me for a FREE consultation, in Manchester or on Skype.


My Approach

I take a direct, results focused approach to helping you achieve your goals, whatever they may be: end a bad habit, lose weight, reduce anxiety, handle stress better, nurture new skills or ambitions, resolve a particular problem, boost your confidence, or generally improve well-being.

The list of issues is almost indefinitely long. Whatever the issue, however, it will almost certainly involve changing a current pattern of thinking, feeling or behaviour, and/or developing a new one.

We address the situation in the here and now, rather than looking for remote causes, and from your first free consultation we make an agreed outline plan and start taking action towards your goal.

For these reasons the overall structure and length of treatment is usually short – usually no more than 6 x 1 hour sessions (and the first session is FREE). Of course, the details and implementation are tailored to each individual. Personalised elements include setting goals, selecting appropriate strategies, monitoring progress via feedback, modifying strategies in the light of the feedback, and maintaining motivation throughout the programme.
