John Shallcroft

Hypnotherapist and Coach

Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist & Performance Coach and Mentor


I am an expert in the field of Personal Development Coaching, Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy and am registered with the Hypnotherapy and Life Coach Directories.  Highly qualified and accredited, my  experience allows me to work closely with clients to find a tailored solution which works for them.

A resident of Falmouth in Cornwall, I have spent over 30 years as an Officer in the Royal Navy.  This time has provided me with considerable experience in handling varied and unusual issues and complaints. Building on this experience, I have more than 25 years of personal development experience working within both the public and private sectors.

Insured and DBS checked, my professional integrity is something I am very proud of.

I am a Fellow of the Institute of Leadership and Management, a leading body in management and leadership studies, and have achieved full accreditation from the European Mentoring and Coaching Council, who develop, promote and set the expectation of best practice in mentoring and coaching across Europe. I also hold memberships of the Association of Neuro Linguistic Programmers and the Association for Coaching.

I am an accredited practitioner of the popular and widely used Myers Briggs Personality Type Indicator, which is well respected in the world of business. I also use the TKI tool to aid with conflict resolution. Having trained with John Grinder, the co-founder of neurolinguistic programming, I am well placed to provide NLP training.

Holding a Diploma in Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy and the prestigious Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) has allowed me to register with the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH), The National Council of Hypnotherapy (NCH), the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and The National Board for Modern Psychotherapy (NBMP), meaning that I abide by strict codes of conduct and ethical standards.

I also hold a  Masters Degree from Cranfield University, which specialises in leadership and management.

Ensuring that my skills remain up to date through ongoing training and supervision is important to me, and I am currently studying for an Advanced Diploma in Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy as well as working towards EMCC accredited supervisor status.

Working with clients for a fixed period, or on a more open ended basis, I work closely with every individual with the aim of enabling them to enhance their life and to live it more fully.
