About Kristian Lees-Bell
I have been working with clients as a clinical hypnotherapist since 2011 and have helped over 1000 people overcome stress and anxiety related issues. There are very few issues I haven’t seen over the years. A fear of buttons, heights, spiders, and speaking up in meetings are among some of the more common challenges I see at my clinic!
My path to becoming a full-time hypnotherapist in Bournemouth started after completing my studies in Psychology. I am one of a very few people in the UK who has trained in psychology (I have a Masters degree in Occupational Psychology) and as a clinical hypnotherapist. This means that I have both the practical therapeutic skills, but also a deeper understanding of human behaviour and evidence-based practice.
It also means you are in good hands…
Almost all of the interventions I currently offer clients are based on evidence-based practice. My preferred tool to use is hypnosis of course, but my clients also receive the added benefits of techniques based on the latest neuroscience, psychology, and coaching methods.
After all these years I still love helping people to overcome their problems and reach their potential. Hypnotherapy is still hugely underrated but it is one of the most effective ways to overcome problem habits and behaviours painlessly, gently and often incredibly quickly.
In my spare time I sing jazz which I believe assists in keeping my ‘hypnotic voice’ in good condition! I’m still fascinated by how effective hypnotherapy can be in enhancing my own performance on the stage and how helpful it was when I first began performing publicly many years ago.
I can still remember the first time I got up on stage; the thumping heart, dry mouth, shaky voice and the fear that I would forget every single word!
This became a bit of a pattern until I decided to see a fellow performer and hypnotherapist for a session of hypnotherapy. I was able to let go of that past negative experience so I could start enjoying the prospect of singing publicly again. After just 3 sessions my performances started feeling and looking much more relaxed and confident.
This is one of the main reasons I decide to keep on doing this kind of work – I know it works!
