Hello, my name is Mike Durant and I am a professionally qualified and highly experienced counsellor and psychotherapist. I provide a safe, caring environment for you to explore your behaviours, thoughts and feelings using an integrative approach to facilitate this. I am also a qualified hypnotherapist and Reiki Master and I would like to help you to overcome your existing problems to create the life that you want.

Uses hypnosis to facilitate change. Hypnosis is a natural state of total relaxation and a natural method of lulling the conscious mind in order to reach the subconscious. Whilst in this relaxed state of hypnosis, the subconscious part of the mind is more receptive to suggestions and change. This allows old patterns and conditioning to be reprogrammed, thereby permitting new ideas and positive suggestions to be introduced. These positive suggestions can then be used to help make the changes you need in your life.
Hypnosis is very safe when used by a qualified hypnotherapist as you remain in control at all times. You can not be coerced to do anything against your will and you can never act upon any suggestions that you do not agree with. In fact, you can choose to enter or leave the hypnotic state at anytime.
Helps with all above concerns and issues, plus
• Weight loss,
• Stopping smoking,
• Fears and phobias,
• Pain relief,
• Confidence building,
• Unwanted habits, etc.
Past Life Regression:
Remembering buried memories from past lives allows problems or issues in your current life to be resolved.
This therapy is similar to normal hypnotic regression within this current life which allows the recall of forgotten childhood events. Past life regression allows buried memories from previous lives to be recalled. When these memories are examined it gives clients an opportunity to look again at the events and to face them from a different viewpoint, allowing them to deal with whatever happened. Having done so they often find that the problems or issues besetting them in this life are also resolved. For example; physical injuries received in previous lives may be the cause of pain or discomfort in this current life. Likewise fears and phobias may also date back to events in previous lives and similarly our character will also be affected by what has gone before
You can undertake Past Life Regression just for curiosity, it is not essential to believe in reincarnation to take part. The results can be just as impressive whatever beliefs are held. The regressions can be a fascinating and revealing journey into the past. In itself amazing enough, but what is more amazing is the frequency with which people find themselves freed of their health problems or other issues.
Life Between Lives Regression:
Spiritual Regression or Life Between Lives Regression (LBL) was developed by Dr. Michael Newton, author of "Journey of Souls", and "Destiny of Souls". It allows you to experience who you are beyond your personality and ego, and to understand what your purpose is in this lifetime. Understanding this helps you to decide many things in your life including helping to resolve emotional and health issues.
A Life Between Lives regression will allow you to benefit from the knowledge of the true nature of your soul, thereby giving you guidance and knowledge of your life’s purpose. I have seen the effects of a LBL regression and importantly have experienced it myself. I found the experience amazing and I want to give people the same opportunity to better their lives.
Balances the energy within the body, reducing stress and generally increases vitality and wellbeing both physically and spiritually. It was developed from ancient traditions in the early twentieth century by a Japanese man named Mikao Usui; it was taken to the USA in the 1930’s and its popularity has since led to the practice of Reiki increasing phenomenally throughout the world.
The word "Reiki" comes from the Japanese: "REI" meaning Universal and "KI" meaning Life Force Energy (it is essentially the Japanese equivalent of the Chinese description of "chi", or ‘prana’ in India). The Reiki energy can be taken to refer to a Balanced Universal Life Force. Reiki is a way of channelling this energy to address not only physical disorders but also to open the mind to the causes of dis-ease and pain to create a wholeness and harmony.
Receiving a Reiki treatment is very simple, non intrusive and an extremely powerful process. During a treatment the client lies down on a therapy couch and the practitioner places their hands in a number of positions over the client’s body, whilst acting as a channel or conductor for the energy.
In addition to treatments I regularly run Reiki training weekend courses at Edington, Somerset, which are advertised on this website, or please contact me for information on future courses.
