About Us

Director and Therapist – Hazel Saville

The basis of Hazel’s current approach is in helping clients to release limiting beliefs and unhelpful patterns that keep them stuck. She majors in helping people to move on into empowered living, to thrive in every area of life; physical, emotional and spiritual.

Hazel was born & raised in Swansea. She started her career at the age of 22 as a social worker in an inner London borough. 2 years later she moved to West Glamorgan and worked for a further 4 years in social work. Her experience taught her that working in this field, especially in an under-resourced county, was much like sticking plaster over a deep wound that needed cleaning and stitching. Clients were offered temporary solutions that were unable to address unhelpful and often self-destructive patterns of behaviour. Such patterns can stem from unhelpful early negative ‘programming’; from limiting beliefs; lack of self-esteem and confidence. Hazel’s search for a solution led to a study of many different therapeutic approaches and considerable personal growth.

In the 1990s and early 2000’s Hazel trained in Advanced Hypnotherapy. She also became a Master Practitioner in both NLP and Timeline Therapy. She trained in Theta Healing with its founder Vianna Stibal, becoming a certified Advanced teacher of Theta Healing. She also trained over several years in shamanic healing and a wide range of other healing modalities.

As she worked with clients new methods of using old tools evolved. She called the short-term therapeutic approach that she developed ‘Life Change Therapy’.

Hazel qualified with The National School of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (NSHAP) in 1999 as a practitioner in Therapeutic Hypnosis and Psychotherapy. She was awarded the NSHAP Advanced Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma in 2003 after undergoing further training, an extended period of clinical supervision and demonstrating evidence of competence at that advanced practitioner level.

Hazel has been awarded a BA (Hons) in Humanities, Diploma in Social Work, Certificate in Counselling, Master Practitioner NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), and Master Practitioner Time Line Therapy. Hazel has also held for many years the Senior Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice and is a Senior Member of the General Hypnotherapy Register (www.general-hypnotherapy-register.com).

Hazel has also trained in a number of other healing approaches, including Reconnective Healing and CBT.

Hazel is also a poet, song writer, harpist and artist and operates a gallery at the Golden Hill Centre. To see her art visit the Golden Hill Art web site or see her Golden Hill Art website page.

Director and Therapist – Peter Saville

Stop Press: Peter has now become the first person in West Wales to be certified as an approved practitioner for the Hypnotension™ programme for people suffering from hypertension (high blood pressure).

Peter is a full member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and is entitled to use the letters MNCH. The NCH regulates its members and ensures standards of training and practice are high.He loves seeing clients successfully make the changes they want in their lives.

Peter took an introductory course in Neuro Linguistic Programming in Bristol in 2005 where Hazel was an assistant instructor. He was really impressed with the way it could make rapid changes in the way people felt and behave , with noticeable changes in body language. This was followed by an advanced course in Pain Management (Hypnoesitherapy) in 2006. He later left the IT world (in 2010) to complete the intensive training at Surrey Institute for Clinical Hypnotherapy (an accredited NCH training school) for their Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) in Clinical Hypnosis. This also included their Clinical NLP Practitioner Certificate. The whole emphasis of this training school is in ‘evidence based’ hypnotherapy. Peter subsequently became the first therapist in South West Wales to qualify in ‘Hypnotension’ – a specialism aimed at helping people with high blood pressure (hypertension).

Peter was born in London in 1949. He qualified as a Science Teacher from London University and taught in comprehensives in London and Swansea for 2 years, had a short spell in electrical engineering and then joined the Civil Service as a junior executive. After 6 years in planning and staff management roles he moved into the IT Specialism.

Soon privatised, Peter worked for many years in various senior IT roles. His assignments have taken him to various cities in the UK and abroad to N. and S. America, working for various Government departments, blue chip companies, on large scale computer services bids and on global sales definition work. Exciting as all this was at times, he now rates his job satisfaction much higher in seeing clients get better quickly in the ways they want to.
