The Counselling Co
Emotional freedom Technique
Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Tim Peal and I am a fully qualified Counsellor, Hypnotherapist and Emotional Freedom Technique Practitioner. I work in a supportive, empathetic and non judgemental way to help you develop better self awareness, self care and understanding of your thoughts, emotions and behaviour. I am what's known as a Pluralistic Counsellor, this means that I can draw from many theories and approaches to mental health to develop the best way of helping you. I have practices in Bishops Stortford, Braintree, Clare (Suffolk) and Great Saling for face to face sessions. I am also trained and qualified to work on Zoom.
I am a member of the National Counselling society and the National Hypnotherapy society.
I offer Counselling sessions either face to face at my practices in Bishops Stortford, Braintree and Great Saling. I am also trained and qualified to offer counselling over zoom. I like to work in a warm and collaborative way. Counselling is a great way of helping people find new ways of thinking about the past and the present. I will help you to develop a deeper
understanding of the subconscious thoughts that influence you.
Hypnotherapy is great for helping with so many issues. I find it works best when it is used alongside counselling. The combination can be very effective in developing a better understanding of the mind body connection and how this is effecting our thoughts and emotions.
Emotional Freedom Technique
Emotional freedom technique is an amazing therapy that uses a combination of tapping various points on the face and hands, eye movement and affirmations. I use EFT alongside Hypnotherapy and counselling . It is great for managing pain, anxiety, stress and many other issues that affect all of us at some time in our lives.
Working with Children and Young People
12-18 years old
I have worked successfully with children and young people in both sports and the work environment. I spend one day of my working week as a school counsellor at an Academy school in Hainault . This an area of my work that I feel is so important. Early intervention is vital in addressing issues that affect children and young people. We know that talking about such issues as eating disorders, self harm, anxiety, bullying and many more, can really help young people as they progress through life.
I have completed additional training in working with eating disorders in the young along with working with adolescents .
I am pleased to offer face to face counselling to secondary school aged children at my Braintree, Clare and Bishops Stortford Practices.

What Some Recent Clients Have Said
After several years years of Hip and joint pain and following a referral to a pain management clinic, which didnt help at all, a friend suggested I see Tim to see if he could help. Well he could and he did.
I was feeling pretty desperate by this time and his calm and relaxing way of working with my pain was very effective. I am not 100% pain free, but so much better than I was, and with my Doctors permission, I am off the pain relief medication, which I have been taking for years. Thankyou Tim
I was feeling incredibly low, myself self esteem had never been lower and I really wasn't myself. Nobody and nothing could help which was a really depressing situation. Fate, luck, whatever intervened and I decided to see if Tim could help.Our sessions were a mix of Counselling and Hypnotherapy. He was able to help me straight away. After a few sessions I felt like my old self again, but in many ways an improvement. I can't recommend Tim enough.
in my life, I have had so much self doubt. The sessions with Tim have helped me to realise that I don't need to change into someone or something else. I have learned not to judge myself for my thoughts and feelings but to develop my self acceptance. I have had many counsellors over the years, but somehow with Tim, it resonated in a deeper level.
Tim will affect many peoples lives in a positive way; as he has affected mine.
