Adrian Sonnex, Your Hypnotherapist & Mindfulness Therapist
I was born in 1968, in Carshalton, Surrey and have always been interested in how people work and in working with people. I had a twenty year career in care work working with adults with physical and learning disabilities, Autism and Challenging Behavior before becoming a full-time professional Hypnotherapist in September 2007. Whilst I was working in care work I worked with Clinical Psychologists, Cognitive Behavioural Therapists and other therapists which inspired me to become a therapist myself. I completed an Introduction to Counselling course and a Certificate in Counselling and Counselling Skills at Birkbeck College, University of London (covering Person Centered and Psycho-dynamic counselling). I then did a foundation course in Hypnotherapy before passing my Professional Course, Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis, DCH in September 2007. I was awarded my Diploma in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioural Therapies in December 2008.
Adrian Sonnex, Your Hypnotherapist
I used Hypnotherapy to help me to successfully stop smoking over 30 years ago and decided to consider becoming a hypnotherapist because of this. I have been a full-time qualified hypnotherapist since 2007 and I still love helping people to stop smoking, manage their anxiety, stress, depression and resolve their phobias, traumas, relationship and sexual problems, IBS symptoms, addictions and so many more difficulties.
Adrian Sonnex, Your Mindfulness Therapist
I first discovered Mindfulness when I learned about Traumatic Incident Reduction TIR ( for trauma, phobias and fears) as part of my Professional Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis in 2007. I started my Diploma in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioural Therapies MCBT whilst completing my Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis. I was awarded my Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioural Therapies Diploma in December 2008, becoming a professional Mindfulness therapist in January 2009 practicing ever since. Mindfulness has become ever more popular the last few years with everyone jumping on the bandwagon.
He studied and practices Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction MBSR for Anxiety, Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy MBCT for Depression, Traumatic Incident Reduction TIR for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder PTSD and other forms of trauma, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ACT. He completed his MBCT Teacher Development (part 1) in February 2010.

Why choose Well-being Hypnotherapy & Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is becoming ever more popular because it can be run as a group course. It is self-regulated at present which means that you can read a book, complete a 5 hour online mindfulness teacher training course and call yourself a Mindfulness Teacher.
Mindfulness-based therapies are not like teaching Mathematics, you can’t learn the theories and rules then teach them to others you must continually practice them yourself developing your personal understanding and experience of Mindfulness. As a Mindfulness therapist and teacher I share my experience and understanding of Mindfulness-based Therapies with my clients.
Aa Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapist I meditate using the Body Scan or Sitting Meditation every day. I also do my Mindful movement or walking meditation every day as well and eat and drink mindfully. I see clients Mindfully and spend moments between clients, with family and friends Mindfully.

I noticed a huge improvement in my ten year old daughter after just one session. She stopped wetting the bed, and seemed more relaxed socially. Adrian was very gentle and positive with her and respected my views as a parent-i would recommend people try his service themselves, it works. (Five Stars) *
