Garry Coles


One of only a very small number of hypnotherapists in the UK (and probably Europe) to hold an MSc in Clinical Hypnotherapy. Practising as a full-time therapist for many years, Garry has busy private practices in five locations in London (Harley Street) and the south of the UK. Garry has consulted for over 14 years at a major hospital specialising in oncology-based hypnotherapy work. He also practises from within a local GP surgery, with the GP’s referring many of the patients directly. In addition, he receives hospital referrals and referrals from many other local GPs and health care professionals.
Known as ‘The Hypnotherapist’s Hypnotherapist’ due to his academic background and the number of hypnotherapists and psychologists he works with and is seen as the ‘Go To’ therapist for the most difficult cases.
Garry is a regular presenter, worldwide, at conferences and conventions as well as presenting his own popular masterclasses.

An introduction into carrying out empirical hypnotherapy research, particularly in conjunction with the medical and clinical industry, or within the countries health service. A multitude of tips and advice will be given.
Good research into hypnotherapy is paramount in moving the industry forward and it being taken more seriously by the establishment. But how do you go about carrying out research? What can you research? What types of research are there? What makes good research? How and what can you measure? How do you fund it? What are the ethical implications? Can you carry out research in the within the medical industry? How do you ‘prove’ your findings?

Using his ground-breaking research into the examining the effects of pre-surgical hypnotherapy in breast cancer operations, as a template, Garry will guide you on a journey through this often tricky but expanding area. He will give tips and insights into how to carry out your own valid, empirically tested hypnotherapy research whilst avoiding the pitfalls.
