About Me

Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist

My name is John and I am a Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist and I am the proprietor of J Lowson Hypnotherapy in Hipperholme, Halifax and owner of Halifax Hypnotherapy Clinic, I am also a senior lecturer for the UK’s largest hypnotherapy training organisation the Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training school, (CPHT) at York University and hypnotherapy supervisor.

As a well respected local businessman I found myself studying hypnotherapy as the result of a very bitter, non-instigated divorce a few years ago. The aftermath of the divorce left me with depression, anger and anxiety, to a point where my life was spiralling rapidly out of control. Anger, depression and anxiety certainly ruled my life back then and if it wasn’t for a close friend recommending hypnotherapy, I very much doubt I would be here to tell this story.

Hypnotherapy allowed me to re-focus on the positive aspects of my life and re-trained my very negative brain to be positive and look at a new positive future.

I am pleased to say I am now happy (the happiest for a very long time). I now live for the moment, not worrying about the past, over which I have no influence, or the future which I can only plan and again not influence.


I am now engaged to my loving, caring fiancée and my life is nowhere near as dark or as bleak as I had forecast it to be back then. I wake up every morning with an empty “stress bucket” so I can start the day without depression, anger or anxiety and I am willing to help you do the same.

I am a registered member of the NCH (National Council of Hypnotherapy) and the AFSFH (Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy) I am also a member of the CNCH (Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council) and work with local medical professionals through referrals and an approved therapist for the charity Anxiety UK. I am also a hypnotherapy supervisor and mentor. Having trained with the very prestigious Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training school where I am now a senior lecturer at York University. I am fully insured and carry an enhanced DBS certificate.

My practice is based in Hipperholme a 5 minute drive from the surrounding areas of Halifax, Brighouse, Claremount, Boothtown, Lightcliffe, Norwood Green, Northowram, Shelf, Queensbury, Wyke and Wibsey. Set in a clinical setting with easy access and on the major bus routes to Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford and Leeds.
