About Tim Langhorn
Therapy and Coaching Practice in Bath
Tim Langhorn has been working in the City of Bath since 2006. Tim came to Bath from London, where he had a successful career spanning three decades, working in a variety of therapeutic environments, institutions and organisations. Once Tim decided the beautiful City of Bath was going to be his new home, it took him no time at all to get working on the business he now has today.
Like many local businesses in Bath it has its ups and downs. Tim started the business not long before we had a world recession. However, with a continued belief and holding on to his dream of being his own boss with the skills he has built up in the caring profession, Tim pursued ways to advertise and get his name known. Gradually people did hear about Tim and parents spoke with other parents about how he had helped their child or adults heard his radio advertising or saw his flyers and the message got out there.
Tim continues to this day to find ways to reach as many people as he can. Tim knows that his support and help could make the difference to the lives of so many adults or children who want to make changes that would give them a more positive and rewarding future.
Professional Life of a Therapist
Tim started his professional working life in a Family Centre in the City of Norwich at the tender age of twenty one. He worked with parent groups, toddlers, teenagers truants, young offenders, adult offenders, young people in care and parents with troubled children. On his return to London he worked in a number of children’s homes, assessment units, independent units and with runaways to London. Tim’s career moved to area offices working in the field and in schools with parents and families where issues of truancy, family breakdown or social exclusion were prevalent.
It was about this time back in the 80’s when Tim realised getting more qualified in areas such as counselling would help his work with the emotionally challenged people he often supported. From there, Tim went on to work with other major organisations in more senior or managerial roles, such as Parentline Plus and ChildLine.
Tim then took the brave step from his management role as a regional manager, with responsibility for London and the South East of England and worked as an agency worker. This meant a considerable pay cut, all so he could return to direct work with adults and children, for the NCH (later renamed Action for Children). It was the beginning of his return to what he enjoys the most. Directly supporting and helping adults and children move away from the difficulties, challenges and hurt in their lives, to move toward a better quality of life.
Here to Offer Help, Support and Guidance
Over the years living and working in Bath, Tim has continued with his four freelance professional roles as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Counselling Therapist, Life Coach & Children’s Therapist. However, Tim also has worked with a few organisations or charities to widen his experience and create a healthy balance and variety within his working week. Tim has worked with a local secondary school assisting and supporting a year seven autistic pupil integrate into mainstream school life. Tim has worked with Barnardo’s on three different projects. An advisor for parents regarding their children’s welfare and behaviour, a volunteer co-ordinator for children’s services and a family group conference coordinator. Tim for the past three years has been supporting vulnerable adults in the community who have learning disabilities or alcohol or mental health issues.
They say variety is the spice of life. Well Tim certainly agrees. Tim believes it enhances his ability to connect to the different people within the community and make him a wiser and more experienced professional
And to top it all off, Tim Langhorn also volunteers his time as an emergency blood bike rider, with a local charity called Freewheelers. Whether it’s delivering samples to the pathology laboratory at the RUH, breast milk for new-born babies or fresh blood to stock up the two air ambulances, Tim rides in wind and rain throughout the year, to ensure this vital life saving work continues to help the many thousands of patients, he actually never meets. But Tim knows there is positive impact on the NHS services that he and his colleagues at Freewheelers freely give their time for and how it can make a life changing difference for patients.
