My name is Graham Wilson and I am a Helping Practitioner, offering several modalities to suit the client.
I offer Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Talking Therapy.
I am also a strategic life coach focussed on solutions rather than months of therapy!
I work with clients on-line, in their own homes or I can hire a meeting room if that is preferred. Sessions normally last 1 hour and are chargeable at £20/hour.
As well as being a helping therapist and life coach I work with children and young people from 8-18 as a Support Worker in my local cluster of schools. I support them through the emotionally tough times in their young lives and help them make sense of their world and their place in it.
I am also an instructor in Scottish Mental Health First Aid and I train, deliver and co-ordinate the Seasons for Growth Programme throughout the North East of Scotland.
Neuro Linguistic Programming also known as NLP is the practice of understanding how people organise their thinking, feeling, language and behaviour to produce the results they do.
NLP provides people with a methodology to understand why they do things and how they can change, do things better or make sense of what is holding them back.
Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as EFT is a self-help technique combining tapping on specific points of the Chinese Medicine Meridians (used widely in acupuncture) while focussing on the problem or issue at hand and repeating specific sentences tailored to the problem which aim to ease the effects and leave the client feeling quite grounded and calm.
Hypnotherapy used guided relaxation, intense concentration and focussed attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is also known as a trance. The clients attention is so focussed while in this state that anything going on around them is temporarily blocked out or ignored. Attention is focussed on suggestions that are made at a sub or non conscious level which can be absorbed and grounded in the clients belief system if the client is comfortable with the suggestion.
Sometimes it's easier to talk to a stranger then to a relative or friend. During talking therapy, I will listen to you non judgmentally and help you feel relaxed enough that you may find your answers to problems.
During our talk you will have time to talk, cry, shout or just think. It's an opportunity to look at your problems in a different way with someone who'll respect you and your opinions.
e-therapy is any type of on-line therapy and it includes on-line counseling and on-line hypnotherapy. e-Therapy is becoming more and more popular because it offers many advantages. No need to travel to a clinic, scheduling is convenient and the ability to have the on-line session in the comfort of your own home.
Privacy and confidentiality (zoom sessions are encrypted) automatically recorded sessions for future reference, possibility of working with your choice of therapist regardless of where you live. Mental health services can now be available to anyone. All kinds of issues can be treated via the internet : if you want to quit smoking, manage anxiety, lose weight or work on healing other aspects of your life, I may be able to help you. For more information on what e-Therapy can do for you, please see my latest Blog.

"Highly Recommend Brave Journeys and I can’t recommend Graham enough, just had my second session tonight to help me with the grief of my husband & to help me manage getting back to work this week. It hasn’t all been tears, we have had some laughs as well .
Graham is very professional at what he does, he listens and is very easy to talk to. He also knows how to pin point what your not so good at talking about, and gives lots of friendly non judgmental advice. I highly recommend you get in touch. I look forward to seeing Graham again".

"I would highly recommend Brave Journeys. I met Graham at a time when, for various reasons, I felt incredibly lost, worthless and without purpose. Through conversation and techniques Graham has helped me work on what I want and who I am. Graham is a genuine and kind therapist, who is very comfortable to be with.10 minutes of hypnotherapy makes me feel like I've had a day at a spa!"

"Tonight I had my first session across Skype and for me it was comfortable for the beginning and getting to know the counsellor. I found it easy talking over Skype because I do get nervous meeting but this has taken the edge off".
