Patrick Cave

Patrick Cave

Master Hypnotherapist, NLP Master, Coach, Author and Teacher. Helping you leave the past behind, end trauma and negative patterns, heal self and relationships, blossom freely

One belief I have is that if a client finds me (amongst all the therapists) then this is the right time and we are meant to work together.  It's a belief that has been proven time and again (read my reviews). Very often when that new client comes to me, they use the word 'stuck'.  Is that a word that you have used to yourself? Perhaps something in your past seems to have been getting in your way?  Perhaps a pattern that you don't want has been repeating in relationships or work or in personal wellbeing? Perhaps a health symptom or addiction or some kind of self-sabotage has been tripping you up.  And all the time you can sense what would be possible if only you can let your power flow freely and be that version of yourself who feels fine and attracts every blessing going.

If these things resonate with you, if the idea of finally blossoming strikes a chord, if you can already almost see the life you want, then give me a call on 07900 956002 or mail

I have experience working with the following:

  • Trauma
  • Addiction
  • Health Issues
  • Relationship Issues
  • Work-Related Issues
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Healing Past Events
  • OCD behaviour
  • Self-Harming Behaviour (of all kinds)
  • Creating a Better Life
  • Fertility and IVFsuccess enhancement
  • Stress and Addiction to Stress
  • Self Sabotage
  • Phobias and Fears of All Kinds
  • Transgender Issues

...and much more.

Sessions are 90 minutes and I aim to get full results in one to three sessions.  I use a range of fast, often fun techniques that help you to rearrange your inner world to your best advantage and make your interaction with the outside world as fruitful and positive as you could wish.

A review by Nicky Don't want to say

Just thought I'd let you know I had the opportunity to use the Relax Reset Renew MP3 last night. I'd had a super busy evening working and ended up finishing very late with a very chattery head which just wouldn't quit.

Adding to that I had to be up at a specific time to drive across the country... knowing I have to get up early puts additional pressure on me going to sleep which often prevents me going to sleep, as in this case.

Even after [medication and] trying my usual relaxation/distraction methods for going to sleep..they all failed me and then i remembered the MP3.

Well, I must say, I'm surprised and impressed... being quite a "facts + numbers orientated" sort of person I've not had a huge amount of success with alternative therapy type things when used on myself (though I see other people get benefits). But...After one listen (in bed, on headphones) I felt better & noticeably more relaxed, after 3 or 4 (consecutive) listens my arms and legs were melting into the bed and after 5-6 listens, I ended up (as I realised later) full-on lucid dreaming which I'd heard about but never been able to experience myself. Very cool indeed and totally unexpected.

"I had an anger moment [as I used to]... but immediately the blue-white spinning wheel cleared it. The amazing thing was [for the first time] there was no guilt afterwards. I have noticed I'm more objective and less emotionally charged...; I realise that I wasn't as aware before I started as I am now, about the most important things to me. It's all about me getting my freedom!"

"I was uncertain about sharing my closely-held fears with a stranger but immediately felt I could trust Patrick. He's helped me shift a heavy burden and I highly recommend Patrick and NLP to everyone."

A review by Nicola Burgess

I booked a session with Patrick as in spite of clear progress with psychotherapy I still felt ‘stuck’ at some deeper level and in need of a different approach in order to move on. Certain reactions and thought patterns seemed indelibly written within me and remained all too easily provoked. So, I took a chance on hypnotherapy.

I was nervous about hypnotherapy as I wasn’t sure what to expect, fearing that it might involve 'losing control’. In psychotherapy I’d learnt to recognise how, as a child, I’d developed a tendency to dissociate when overwhelmed. This fear reaction can undermine confidence, in stepping out of one's comfort zone for instance, and having achieved some hard-won stability I was anxious not to lose this. Hence handing over - what seemed like control - to someone else - was a big ask!

I’m smiling here, as I type these words and thinking back to my initial session with Patrick, as it was wonderfully liberating to learn that I needn’t have been afraid. The best part for me personally was that I wasn't particularly aware of the techniques he used and I am grateful for this, his skill, in enabling me to … how can I say.. dive beneath my fear in spite of my long held instinct to not 'let go' come no matter what! I left the session amazed it had worked. How did he get past me? The part of ‘me’ that wouldn’t 'let go’ for fear I would ‘crash'. Impressive!

So, the second time I saw Patrick I felt more relaxed, found it easier to open up and knew I had begun to tackle issues of control or fear of sliding into dissociation from a place I’d not been able to do so before.

Then, after the 3rd session, I experienced a further shift, a deeper breakthrough. I could actually feel my fear in a more distinct way. I was not overwhelmed by the waves of fear - I could feel both myself AND the fear. This was liberating. I noticed over the next few weeks how previous situations that may have undermined my confidence didn’t do so nearly as much. These 3 sessions helped me feel the very step I had taken in that short space of time.

Patrick’s humour during our sessions encouraged me to see and share the funny side of my fear of fear and before I realised it - I’d dived in and under my fear and came up smiling!

A review by Vicky Edwards

I initially contacted Patrick to eliminate a problem that seemed to be getting close to becoming a phobia, that I had had in various forms throughout my life. However, from the beginning, the first session went off at a tangent to cover the difficult emotions I had been having in recent months. I was very happy to deal with this instead as I felt it would in fact be more useful to me in making big changes in my life.

I found Patrick very easy and relaxing to be with and I enjoyed the 3 sessions I had. After months of an unpleasant emotional feeling occurring every day, it only occurred once more and hasn't come back since. I also had some amazingly powerful dreams where it seemed my mind was being re-organised.

I am certainly in a much more positive frame of mind now and I'm hoping the sessions will help me achieve some major changes this year!

A review by Bethany Please

I went to Patrick with a strong fear of driving. After each session, I felt much more confident but I had some stubborn fear triggers that were lingering. After the third session, we both felt that something big had shifted. The driving is now mostly positive as well as other aspects of my life! I feel like the tools that Patrick gave me really help with keeping calm and confident. Focusing the mind/head down to below the belly button is great and visualising me as super girl gives me a great distraction. I have had some longer drives that have felt good. I feel like the sessions were extremely positive and I came out feeling very calm, confident and ready to face the world.

I walked out of my hypnosis session with Patrick feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Not only did he help to alleviate my ongoing sleep disorder in one session, but also reaffirmed the positive outlook I possessed before the problem. I can't recommend his services highly enough

A review by Moira Smith

I would like to highly recommend the treatments that Patrick can offer.
At the beginning we made a contract so that we both had an understanding of the issue and what an acceptable resolution would be, which Patrick was very good at helping me to write this.
The questionnaire I was given at the beginning was very useful in helping me keep focused on the issue at hand and gain a better understanding of the problem.
After one 2 hr session, I can now easily, with no effort visualise myself without the behaviour I was trying to remove from my life in such a positive way, it is like second nature now.
The instant results are quite remarkable and currently I don’t see any need to have anymore.
The quick connection Patrick made with me to feel at ease was also a major help.
The only thing I would like to add, is that I think with these treatments, you have to have quite a strong desire to change to make this successful, Patrick then gives you the techniques to execute it.
