About me

Guy Thorold

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist

A former engineering geologist, I then trained as a psychotherapist. I have a Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis and another in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy.


I'm an accredited member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH). I've been in private practice in Norfolk since 2004. I work in North Norfolk at the Holt Consulting Rooms and the Holt Medical Practice, and also conduct therapy online. This has many advantages - convenience, safety,  no need to travel - and most people find it as effective as face to face therapy.

I can help you free yourself from your problems and achieve your goals, using mainly Clinical Hypnosis and Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy, but also drawing upon a variety of other approaches such as Mindfulness, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and Eye Movement Therapy.

The approach I use is highly effective for a wide range of problems, particularly anxiety disorders (including anxiety, OCD, panic attacks, phobias, relationship difficulties), depression, insomnia, stopping smoking, weight control, and much more.

These methods are also very successful for personal growth. They enhance your mental calmness and perspective, so it's easier to be clearer about what is really important to you. They boost your confidence and positive thinking, and help you to maintain your motivation to achieve your goals and dreams.

Please contact me by phone or email for more information, or to discuss anything in confidence.

Hypnosis is one of the oldest healing techniques, and was used by the Ancient Egyptians thousands of years ago. It has been endorsed by the BMA (British Medical Association) since 1955 as part of medical education, and is used for a wide range of psychological and medical issues, including stress, anxiety, phobias and habit disorders. It is especially useful for IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).

CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) is recognised as a highly effective treatment for a very wide variety of problem thoughts, feelings, behaviours and conditions. It has been thoroughly researched, and is recommended by NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) as the therapy of choice for anxiety and depression.

How can Cognitive Behavioural
Hypnotherapy help me?

For most people, a few regular sessions, whether face to face or online, can help you to feel more in charge of your life, and deal with challenges and difficulties in a much more positive and resourceful way. My aim is to give you the problem solving skills, and the confidence and motivation to be self-reliant as soon as possible.

Whatever your difficulty, I can help you find calm and relaxation, and guide you through seemingly overwhelming problems to get your life back on track. My clients really value the benefits of my approach, as it's crisp and clear, and gets to the core of the problem very quickly. It's not about endless talking - it gives you practical techniques that put you in charge of making the changes that you want.

I've been practicing since 2004, and I've helped hundreds of people to let go of their problems, and to feel much happier and more in control. I'd be very pleased to help you too. Feel free to contact me for more information or an informal chat (details at the bottom of the page).

This is the time of year when many people are trying to lose weight – to be “beach ready” for summer, for the wedding season, and for other important events. This mainly entails going on a diet, and working out at the gym.

Many people know how effective Hypnotherapy can be to lose weight, to stop smoking, or to release themselves from a phobia. However, few of us realise quite how successful it is at dealing with a very wide range of problems and issues.
