I help people unlock the power hidden within their unconscious to enable them to overcome anxiety, self-criticism and limiting beliefs.

Supportive, gentle and effective therapy that works. Reading, Berkshire and Online.

Is this you?

Constantly worrying about money issues, work and/or your weight? Do you suffer from negative comparisons to your friends/peers? Do you struggle with talking to friends about how you feel out of shame or guilt, or because you think that’s not ‘what men do’? Are you self-medicating by comfort eating or drinking too much, and struggling to change the patterns of self-destructive behaviours that seem stuck on loop?

Are you tired of old tropes of ‘macho’ men and pretending to be someone you’re not? Do you want to discover who you really are?

The good news is, it IS possible to feel much better and I can help you get there.

Paul Hradek

BEng., Dip.CogHyp., NLP Prac., NCH (reg.), QCHPA (reg.), Enhanced DBS check (NCH)

Paul is a qualified and insured Cognitive Hypnotherapy Practitioner and Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner.

Paul holds professional memberships with the Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy Practitioners Association, the National Council for Hypnotherapy and is fully DBS checked.

Having worked for 25 years in the corporate world, Paul struggled with his own mental well-being. It was from this experience that he became aware of the desperate need for a different approach to supporting men who are struggling too.

As a result Paul trained as a Mental Health First Aider and this ignited his passion for helping men struggling with mental health challenges. But he still felt more was needed and that was when he left the corporate world and retrained as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist.

Since then Paul has worked with private therapy clients to help them with anxiety, depression, stress, weight issues, self-esteem/lack of confidence issues, addiction and more.

Paul’s areas of specialist interest are:

  • Building unshakeable confidence and solid self esteem.
  • Supporting clients to overcome gambling addictions.
  • Resolving performance anxiety issues.

Therapeutic Coaching

I provide a powerful process to help you unlock your potential and maximise your performance whether at home, work or in sports.

How It Works

When we start, I'll spend time listening to you to form a clear picture of what's causing your troubles. I'll then introduce tools and techniques I think will be helpful to you.

For example, if you have anxiety, I'll choose techniques that free you from the intensity of your symptoms. Or, if you have depression, I'll choose techniques to lift your mood.

Whatever your situation, I'll always help you feel soothed, calm and safe. And we'll move at a pace that feels manageable for you.

My clients appreciate there's no textbook answer which tries to fit them into a box. Instead, I treat you as the unique person you are. In other words, your sessions and the tools and techniques I use, are completely tailored to your needs.

Your Progress

Once your worst symptoms, feelings and thoughts have passed, I'll help you gently build a sense of self-worth.
So that you can begin to see a better future for yourself.

We'll then start your journey into the life you want to be living:

  • Sessions are held in person, or on zoom (or Skype if required)
  • Each session last around 50-60 minutes
  • You'll learn tools and techniques to use between sessions and for life
  • Everything you tell me is confidential
