Hypnotherapist, Counsellor, Children’s Therapist & Life Coach
Therapy and Coaching Practice in the City of Bath
I am Tim Langhorn and I have been working in the City of Bath, since 2006. My professional career began at the beginning of the eighties, where I worked in a variety of therapeutic environments, institutions and organisations. At the end of 2005 I decided the beautiful City of Bath was going to be my new home. So I set up the business I now have today.
Not long after starting the business, we had a world recession. However, I persevered and held on to my dream, of being my own boss. Thinking out the box and being creative, I advertised in newspapers, magazines and flyers across Bath. People started to hear about Tim Langhorn the hypnotherapist and counsellor. Parents spoke with other parents about how I had helped their child. Others heard my radio advertising or saw my flyers or newpaer adverts. Gradually the message got out there.
I continue to find ways to reach as many people as I can. Because I know that my help, could make the difference to many more adults or children in Bath. People who want to make lasting changes that will give them a more positive and rewarding future.
Professional Life of a Therapist
I started my professional work as a therapist in a Family Centre in Norwich, at the tender age of twenty one. I worked with parent groups, toddlers, teenagers and truants. This included mentoring young offenders, adult offenders, young people in care and parents with troubled children. In London I worked in a number of children’s homes, assessment units and independent units. I also helped relocate runaways in London’s Kings Cross. My career continued into education, working in liaison with schools and parents, where issues of truancy or social exclusion were prevalent.
As time progressed, so I realised that getting more qualified in areas such as counselling or life coaching, would aid my work. Because of that, I went on to work with various charities and organisations in more senior and managerial roles, like Parentline Plus and ChildLine.
Eventually I decided management was not really for me. I gave up my role as a regional manager for London and the South East of England. I worked instead as an agency worker across London and Hertfordshire. My aim was to get myself back working directly with my client group. A return to direct work with adults and children. Working for the such organisations, as Barnardo’s and the NCH (later renamed Action for Children). So it was the beginning of my return to what I enjoy the most. Directly supporting and helping adults and children move away from their difficulties. Helping them cope with the challenges and hurt in their lives. Enabling them secure a better quality of life.
Here to Offer Help, Support and Guidance
So now I continue and progress with my four freelance professional roles, as a clinical hypnotherapist, counsellor, life coach & children’s counselling therapist. I have aslso supported anumber of organisations and charities to widen my experience. To enable me to create a healthy balance and variety within my working week.
Some of this experience includes, support to a local secondary school, assisting a year seven autistic pupil integrate into mainstream school life. I worked with the children’s charity Barnardo’s on three different projects. As 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. I also continue to support vulnerable adults with mental health issues, learning disabilities or alcohol or drug dependency.
They say variety is the spice of life. Well Tim certainly agrees. Tim Langhorn believes it enhances his ability to connect to the different people within the community. Because Tim considers this will make him a wiser and more experienced professional
In my spare time, I volunteer with a local emergency blood bike group. As a rider, fundraiser and liaison officer. A local charity called Freewheelers. Delivering vital specimens, medication, medical provisions, equipment and resources.
The work has involved riding in all weathers, to ensure this vital life saving work continues to help the many thousands of NHS patients. People I never actually meet.
