David Davies is a professional senior clinical hypnotherapist. He runs a successful practice in Caernarfon, Gwynedd, North Wales, working with individuals and groups throughout the Anglesey, Gwynedd and Dwyfor regions.
David has worked as a therapist and trainer for over 15 years, drawing on a wide range of skills, including Clinical Hypnotherapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, EFT, Mindfulness and Reiki.
About 24 years ago, David was involved in a serious road traffic accident. This left him in considerable pain and reliant on high doses of pain relief medication. It was during this period that David became interested in various forms of alternative and complementary therapy. The aim was to effectively reduce and manage his pain levels, whilst at the same time substantially reduce the quantity of painkilling medication he required. After much success in these endeavours, David continued training and developed his techniques to the point where he started teaching others how to effectively manage their own pain.
As part of his continuing development, David became interested in NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), Hypnotherapy, Meditation, Mindfulness and EFT.
David continued his development and training, and in 2004 gained his Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis. He also subsequently gained Diplomas in Stress Management, Smoking Cessation and EFT.
David is a Certified Practitioner of both the Hypno-Band and Virtual Gastric Band Weight Loss Programmes. He also holds certificates in Hypnotherapy for the treatment of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and Hypnotherapy for the treatment of Primary Hypertension.
David is a full member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis, a Registered Practitioner with the GHR (General Hypnotherapy Register), an Accredited Practitioner of the GHSC (General Hypnotherapy Standards Council) and a Registered Practitioner with the CNHC (The complementary and Natural Healthcare Council).
David’s hypnotherapy training will draw on his many years of experience as a clinical hypnotherapist and his previous experience as a trainer and course facilitator.
David is the lead trainer for North and Mid Wales courses, and at times works on projects together with David Finch.
