Dr Iain Lightfoot MSc DHyp MNCH

Clinical Hypnotherapist and Coach


My journey to Hypnotherapy began about 10 years ago when I first discovered coaching.  In my core role I had always advocated the development of my team but then I found that there was a name for it.  In the pursuit of excellence and learning I realised that guided meditation and visualisation helped my clients gain immeasurably from coaching sessions - Identifying that I could help them gain more in life from reducing personal problems I wanted to be able to help them more in a counselling/therapeutic fashion.  For me credibility and excellence are very important and so I chose and gained the highest Clinical Hypnotherapy qualifications that I could.  Imagine my surprise when, hypnosis didn't just assist my coaching - more so, my coaching skills benefited my Hypnotherapy skills... I have never looked back and now I could not see myself doing anything else! 

I have been delivering significant change in people, teams and projects for over 10+ years and  its great that my clients realise the significant benefits of working with me.  I use a really fluid natural, intuitive style of reflective therapy and coaching which, for the best results, has to be based upon mutual honesty, trust, respect and openness with each other.  I provoke deep thought and I ask a client to focus on creating innovative and workable solutions for themselves whilst exploring new options and ideas. When we work together, I will do everything to ignite that which motivates you, to give you confidence and, to fully support you 24 hours a day if necessary, to ensure success.  I offer therapy and coaching across all organisational levels and I readily adapt my approach and expert techniques to match both the situation and the uniqueness of my clients.

I am tremendously passionate about CPD and learning. Alongside delivering hypnosis, NLP and coaching, I am a Doctorate of Coaching and Mentoring gained at Oxford Brookes University. My area of interest and research is 'Exploring the events that contain insight within coaching sessions; identifying structures through experiences. I am passionate about learning and using academic skills to further increase the effectiveness of my therapy and coaching.
