About Me - Steve Burgess
Founder of Beverley Natural Therapy Centre, Steve first became involved with hypnosis in the late 1980's when his father successfully gave up smoking using hypnotherapy.  He began practising privately in 1992 and trained with the President of the Institute of Curative Hypnotherapists.

A success story ...
Initially working almost exclusively with smokers, his success was such that he rapidly began to expand his therapeutic portfolio and is now recognised as one of the country's most successful and experienced clinical hypnotherapists, treating a wide range of conditions.  Steve receives many recommendations from satisfied ex-clients and GP's referrals.
