About Jonathan Dunn
Before I write about why I do this and my qualifications, I would like to tell you a few things about me and what I believe:
Why hypnotherapy and coaching are important to me
Before I became a hypnotherapist and coach, I worked as a senior leader in primary schools for over 25 years, including two headships. In 2004, I began coaching to support people managing change. I have spent a huge proportion of my time supporting children, teachers, leaders and families with the common factor that held them back from achieving their full potential: their emotional and mental heath. Coaching is a transformative tool, yet some issues are tougher to unravel as they lie with the person's subconscious: this is where hypnotherapy comes in!
I am a qualified Master Clinical Hypnotherapist, Master NLP practitioner, Master Transformational Life Coach and EMDR practitioner: combining them in order to produce rapid and long-lasting results. Each of these qualifications has been completed through in-person training. I am a Senior member of the Accredited Coaches, Counsellors, Psychotherapists and Hypnotherapists (ACCPH), and the General Hypnotherapy Council. I am also registered with the CNHC and Professional Standards Authority.
Jonathan Dunn MA, Master Hypnotherapist , Dip EMDR, Mastery Cert NLP, Master Transformational Life Coach
To make long-lasting change a reality for as many people as possible by truly understanding each client's needs and implementing first-class bespoke programmes.
Everything I do will be in line with the ethos of a powerful and quick intervention to empower, not a long-term dependency.
I hold a current enhanced DBS check (Disclosure and Barring Service). I have also been the Designated Safeguarding Lead in three schools and currently, I am an ISI inspector in which one of my roles is inspecting safeguarding.
I am happy to explain the safeguarding measures in place at The Synapse Coach to reassure you, including fully recorded sessions and the ability for parents to observe.
I thought I would drop you a quick message to tell you my news.
I have finally found a cottage in Somerset, and will be leaving Whitstable at the end of July.
I just want to say a big thank you for your guidance and encouragement. I’m still not drinking apart from the odd shandy and life feels so much more comfortable.
Once again thank you.
I came to Synapse Hypnotherapy when I was not far of rock bottom. With Jonathan’s patience and skills I can honestly say I’m more or less back to where I would prefer to be mentally and physically. Highly recommend.
Well what can I say.. Jonathan has transformed my life and made my issues more or less disappear.. I went with a sceptical mind but came out with a clear and present mind and my thoughts completely transformed.. I have nothing but good to say and would say to you if you are reading this wondering.. Stop wondering… Go and see Jonathan… He will help you and make your life so much better as he has for me..
An incredibly positive experience with Jonathan, I immediately felt at ease and enjoyed working with him. I’d certainly recommend him to anyone looking for help or support.
With his help he has given the “coping” strategies to manage the difficulties of lockdown – the many facets of bereavement and with his help I have been able to successfully take control of comfort eating and so much more than I could possibly record in this review.
Working with Jonathan has been transformational for me. I have been given the tools to break bad habits and I now understand myself and my decision-making process better. These changes, coupled with a greater understanding of myself, have enabled me to achieve the promotion I aspired for at work. More importantly, the experience has spilled over into my personal life too and I am far happier than I have ever been. I cannot thank Jonathan enough for his expertise.
DA – Senior Leader
Jonathan helped me with improving my confidence through coaching and hypnosis. I was able to present with confidence for the first time in years. What really helped is his calm, reassuring demeanour. He is kind and a great listener. I would highly recommend him if anyone is looking for a smart, understanding, kind, effective coach or hypnotherapist.
SM – Doctor
[The] hypnotherapy has had a huge effect… I just had my yearly appraisal at work and it went well, feeling a lot clearer about my role. I am now looking forward to the next few days of painting…!
AW – Assistant Manger
Thank you so very much for the session. I feel amazing and came home and promptly threw away all vaping relating devices and products…Thank you once again for a really effective session, I feel relieved!
My sessions with Jonathan have been the most helpful form of therapy I have experienced. His professionalism and genuine , kind and gentle nature make it easy to trust in him and the processes, and to speak freely and openly to hugely beneficial results. He is a true healer. I recommend him to you without reservation.
