About Me

Matthew Bates BSc (Hons), DFSH MNCH (Reg.)

Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist

Helping you cope with whatever is holding you back in life.

I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist based in Ashford, Kent, UK. I have a passion for helping people to make the small positive changes needed to remove the obstacles holding them back from pursuing the life they want. I provide one-to-one therapy using the most up-to-date and effective tools based on the latest neuroscience research.

My clients become empowered when they understand how the brain works, why it makes them feel the way they feel and why they do the things they do. When they become empowered, they get a wider view on their world, so they are no longer focused on what they don’t want. Instead, they are able to work out what they do want and can then take the steps needed to get there.
