Christian Dunham has an unusual background for a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist. A professional bass player for over 30 years, he moved to the UK from Australia following a tour with American legend Don McLean. Tired of life on the road and wanting a more fulfilling career than the music business, Christian first decided to train as a Bowen Therapist.
As an Australian, it was a natural choice of therapy. Tom Bowen developed his powerful hands-on remedial technique in Australia in the 1950s to help people suffering from chronic pain, sports injuries and stress-related illnesses. Christian trained at the renowned European College of Bowen Studies and soon found himself inundated by people wanting his help.
Soon after establishing his Bowen practice, he began to realise that stress and anxiety were playing a key role in many of his clients who were presenting physical symptoms of chronic pain and fatigue. He became intrigued by the possibility of treating the body through treating the mind.
Christian decided to train as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and gained his Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy at the prestigious Clifton Practice in Bristol. He also holds the nationally accredited Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma - the 'Gold Standard' in Hypnotherapy training - awarded through The National Council For Hypnotherapy.
Christian has established a busy practice, treating clients at his clinic in Bath and all over the world via Skype. He also works from the Anamaya clinic in Kensington, London. He is a member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and The National Council for Hypnotherapy.
Christian’s former career in the music business has given him a particular insight into the power of confidence. Having performed live on television and played all the major concert halls across the UK, Christian understands the debilitating effect of performance anxiety, and how confidence can change your world.
We all excel, and we can all be happy, when we are feeling clear, calm and confident.
Christian is the author of the book 'Clear, Calm and Confident - How To Change Your Life In 30 Days' and is a regular guest on BBC Radio talking about his work.
