Sam Luxford

Photo of Sam Luxford of Aberdeen HyponotherapyI am a trained Registered General Nurse and Registered Mental Nurse and have worked within the NHS since 1986. I have specialised in Mental health and Addictions for the past 20 years.

Developing my interest I have made a natural progression into Clinical Hypnotherapy. I completed the Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma/HPD and the Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy/DHP at The Clifton Practice, Bristol, one of the UK’s leading accredited courses.The HPD is a nationally recognised qualification at level 4 on the National Qualifications Framework; this is an endorsement of the quality, amount and level of learning required to achieve the HPD.

Having spent my career in Mental Health and Addictions, I fully understand the complexities and strains of modern day life. Now, as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, I am committed to helping people to gain positive control of their lives through ‘solution focused’ therapy – concentrating on the future and what can be achieved rather than dwell on the past and on what might have been.
