What is psychoanalysis and psychotherapy useful for?

As a trained psychoanalyst and clinical hypnotherapist, Stuart specialises in stress and anxiety related disorders, depression management, bipolar management, general mental health and general psychoanalysis.  Hypnotherapy is used as a psychotherapy tool alongside psychoanalysis and specialist areas include public speaking, performance, sports hypnosis, phobias and general personal development.

CBT based psychological therapy (as recommended by NICE for a broad range of mental health conditions) is combined with psychoanalysis and clinical hypnotherapy to provide a holistic package, customised to the needs of the individual.

Couples psychotherapy

Stuart also provides couples therapy, using a psychoanalytic approach, but integrating different models as needed. Stuart works with individuals and relationships of all backgrounds and sexual preferences.
