About Me

Hello and thank you for visiting my website!

My name is Lee Shuttlewood. I am a Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner based in Great Dunmow, Essex.

I’ve been a Hypnotherapist since 2005 when I attended my first Hypnotherapy Diploma course. I was hooked after that and have since then studied NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and continued training with many online and real world trainers. I continue to learn about Hypnotherapy and all things to do with the mind both for work and for pleasure (I know- a bit weird!!!!!).

I do have a life aside from Hypnosis, however- When not working, I love spending time with my family (I am married, with two children, two cats and a dog) and friends (some of whom also have cats and dogs). I’m told I have a good sense of humour and I like to laugh and try not to take life too seriously although sometimes need a reminder!

I enjoy running (see picture above of me completing the Cambridge Half- Marathon in 2016- with Non-Alchoholic Beer in hand I hasten to add), music and films, have an interest in oriental philosophy and art, and practice Wing Chun Kung Fu, Tai Chi and Chi Kung (Qi Gong), also known as Taoist Chinese Yoga. I also play guitar to a very average standard.

I am passionate about my work and helping people to change. My belief is that Hypnotherapy should be a collaborative process and as such, I like to give my clients the tools they need to change. I call this Mental Kung Fu. Mainly due to the fact that I’ve watched too many Martial Arts movies, but also due to the real meaning of Kung Fu which is directly translated as below:

Kung in Chinese means “Skilful work, training or endeavor”

Fu in Chinese means “Time spent”

Therefore, Kung Fu could be translated as “Time spent in skilful work and training”.

A lot of the work I do with my clients is time spent learning mental skills and training the mind with those skills- what I call Mental Kung Fu!
