Kevan Owen  HG.Dip.P

I am a qualified professional Psychotherapist (MHGI) and Registered Hypnotherapist (GHR) based at The Bell Surgery in Chorlton, Greater Manchester, M21 8AU.

I am passionate about helping people to make positive changes in their life.

I have been helping people for over ten years with a number of issues including stress, anxiety, depression, anger and addiction. I regularly see people who want to be more confident, change their habitual ways of behaving, or who want to overcome anxiety and phobias. I've worked with people of all ages and backgrounds.

My overriding aim is to work with you to achieve positive goals and outcomes. I work in a respectful and straightforward way, using a variety of therapeutic techniques including Modern Hypnotherapy, Human Givens Therapy and Coherence Therapy.

As is often the case with people in the therapeutic professions it was personal experience that drew me to this line of work. Having had the experience early in life of living with a family member with emotional problems, I became sensitized to the suffering that this can cause and I believe that this helped me to be naturally empathetic. This experience led me on to a search for more effective methods of therapeutic change.
 
I also work in a client-directed outcome informed way, which means that I measure progress at every session and tailor the therapy to the unique needs and characteristics of each individual.
