Meet Des Canning

Time for Healing

For many years I have guided and helped many people to achieve their dreams, to let go of their past and all of its negativity, so as to create more joy and fulfilment in their lives. I qualified at Ireland’s Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy. I strive to help people in difficult circumstances to achieve their dreams.

My therapy takes a WHOLE PERSON approach.
My goal is to empower clients to see life issues in a totally new light, viewing them from a totally new perspective. A perspective of holding themselves in the highest possible regard, to be the most important and valuable person they deserve to be, now and into the future.

I have trained in other disciplines including Counselling and Psychotherapy; I am in supervision (as all reputable therapists must be) with a fully qualified psychotherapy supervisor. I am fully insured and work to a strict code of ethics. Each year I complete a course to compliment and broaden the therapy work I provide to clients.
I love the work I do, for me the most important person in the therapy room is the client, this may seem obvious but it can get lost in some therapy rooms. I would regard myself as a humanistic therapist. I believe in the same principals as one of the great humanistic psychologists Carl Rogers, that for a person to "grow", they need an environment that provides them with genuineness (openness and self-disclosure), acceptance (being seen with unconditional positive regard), and empathy (being listened to and understood). For me this is the very least any individual sitting in the therapy chair will receive when visiting me.
