A little about me...

I'm Andrew Mercer

A professionally trained and qualified Analytical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist based in Basildon, Essex

My background

Following the completion of my degree in philosophy, in which I specialised in the study of the mind and consciousness, I enjoyed a successful career in Sales and Administration, first in the city of London, then at one of the London’s most famous Landmarks. However, I felt that I was not making full use of my qualifications, this led me into the world of Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy in general. Having trained and worked while still living in London I decided to relocate back to Basildon, my former home town, having been away for almost 20 years…

I studied Hypnotherapy, Hypnoanalysis and Psychotherapy at the Essex Institute of Clinical Hypnosis

I am also currently studying Jungian Analytical Psychotherapy with the Zur Institute 

I hold the following qualifications

  • Advanced Diploma in Hypnosis with Psychotherapy
  • Diploma in Hypnoanalysis (Advanced)
  • Advanced Analytical Hypno-Psychotherapy (Certificated)
  • Certificate of studies in Clinical Hypnotherapy
  • Specialist Diploma in Psycho-sexual Disorders
  • And BA (Hons) in Philosophy
