Business Link Helps Hypnotherapist Focus His Mind on Growth; A TEESSIDE Hypnotherapist Is Getting Ready to Support More People Affected by the Current Tough Economic Conditions and Workplace Stress after Business Link Has Helped Him Get a Head for Business


Stephen Gidney, a hypnotherapist based in Stockton, started his business four years ago after knowing for the last 20 years that he wanted to be a councilor. But instead of being the one helping others, he recently turned to Business Link for their support and advice to get him focused on his own business success .

After 30 years in the oil and gas industry Stephen Gidney decided he needed a career change and gained a diploma in hypnotherapy and hypnoanalysis so that he could help other people following his own personal experiences with stress and panic attacks.

Mr Gidney was only 28 when panic attacks started to affect his life: .When I had my first panic attack I was driving in the car with my three children, I thought I was going to die. I didn't know what was going on and I was terrified.

I had three young children and a mortgage so I went to see a hypnotist who gave me suggestion therapy as a last resort and I eventually got through it."

As a councilor, Stephen offers suggestion therapy where people are put into a relaxed hypnotic state and given suggestions that will affect their behaviour and feelings once they are out of the hypnotic state. He also treats psychological and emotional problems such as anxiety, depression, phobias and eating disorders with pure hypnoanalysis.

He adds: "Although I have been a hypnotherapist for four years my knowledge comes from a lifetime of experiences so I can relate to people. Helping people in the area who have been made redundant is a key part of the work I do as many people come to me with anxiety issues linked to them losing their job."

Business Link is also helping those affected by the economic downturn and has improved the support available to Tees Valley businesses in recent months, to help more businesses in the area to start, develop and grow.

"Before I started working with Business Link I was seriously considering winding up the business," said Stephen. "I needed to understand how to grow the business and help more people. It was important for me to realise that I needed support and was relieved to be able to turn to someone for help and support on how best to run my business. …
