John Paradise – About me

John Paradise

Cert. Ed, Adv. Dip TA Studies,  Dip Hyp, GQHP, GHR Reg, MBACP Reg

I have a background in teaching, and training design. I’ve worked at a national level both teaching and designing training programmes.  I am qualified to teach holding a Cert Ed.   Through my passion for teaching and training I studied  Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) qualifying as a NLP Practitioner.  My profound interest in the human mind and helping others led me to study clinical hypnotherapy.  I am a qualified and experienced clinical hypnotherapist.  I ran a successful practice in the South East and was also the visiting clinical hypnotherapist at the Elizabeth Cummings Clinic, before establishing a new practice when I relocated to Devon in 2011.

As a Certified Transactional Analyst (Psychotherapy) I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP Reg).  I have an advanced diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy and a diploma in clinical hypnotherapy (Dip Hyp)  a general qualification in hypnotherapy practice (GQHP) as well as being a qualified NLP practitioner. I am registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) and I am a hypnotherapy supervisor for GHR.

As a psychotherapist in training I have completed four years studying Transactional Analysis psychotherapy at the Iron Mill Institute, Exeter.  I work as a psychotherapist (in advanced training) for the Iron Mill College.  I have previously worked at the Quiet Mind Centre, Exmouth and  a bereavement  support worker for a national bereavement charity called Cruse.

On a more personal level I am a mad keen biker and always have been as well as being a passionate cook and food lover.
