Steve Scott, M.Sc. B.Ed  DHP

I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist in Reading.


I have always enjoyed working with people. My formal Hypnotherapy training was completed with the Royal Berkshire College of Clinical Hypnotherapy and I am a full-time Clinical Hypnotherapist, but before this, I was a teacher and Headteacher for 35 years, working in a variety of schools. In the course of that career I must have met thousands of children, and always the aim was to enable them to fulfill their potential and go on to achieve success in their education. But often, the job also involved helping children overcome the non-academic barriers that were holding them back - problems such as ...


  • anxiety

  • bullying

  • stress

  • anger management

  • low self-esteem


And the job wasn't just about helping children - parents and adults working in a school environment can also frequently experience feelings of anxiety, stress, fear and anger in both their professional and personal lives, often resulting in insomnia or an inability to relax. Much of my work in school involved coaching and counseling adults! 


Alongside a passion for education, I have a life-long interest in personal development. This led me to qualify as an NLP Practitioner and then to undergo further Life Coaching training with Ali Campbell. I am also qualified as an 'NLP4Kids' Practitioner.


I find a particularly powerful way to help clients is to combine Hypnotherapy, NLP and Life Coaching techniques, so the content of any session we do will be based on what will work best for you. 


When not working with clients, I enjoy running and watching the London Irish rugby team.
