Ray’s life previous to therapy was in structural engineering. He designed buildings. Later, he realised he wanted to make more of a difference to people’s lives so moved into Probation work in Stafford. Since this, he trained as a hypnotherapy practitioner and now runs his own practise. “I love teaching and helping people to fix themselves. My hope is to carry on for a few more years yet, if my many blessing continue.” My message to all fellow therapists and those clients who know me is ‘Believe in your ability to make a difference, work hard and you will succeed’.
