Paul Brown
Hypnotherapy Tutor

Paul is our Darlington Based Tutor.

Prior to Hypnotherapy I worked in international headhunting, recruitment and HR in many countries.  This role involved working closely with people, often on a one to one basis using mentoring, coaching and change techniques.  I’m also a trained interviewer and have carried out hundreds of interviews with people from a diverse range of backgrounds, ethnicities and cultures.

A long-held fascination for psychology and what makes people ‘tick’ subsequently drew me to hypnotherapy.  I enjoy getting to know and understand what people’s motivations and blockers are and I achieve this by building rapport and positive relationships.  I’m non-judgemental, a good listener and have a good sense of humour!  As an empathetic person by nature I’m drawn to trying to help people overcome difficulties and achieve lasting change.

I trained and qualified with the following organisations.

The European College of Hypnotherapy -  with whom I attained a Diploma in Hypnotherapy (Dip. Hyp)
