Nigel qualified as a Hypnotherapist in 2017, finally fulfilling an ambition he has had for most of his adult life. He chose to specialize in helping people suffering from anxiety and depression.
While working with a depressed client he discovered that one of the contributing factors to her depression was the stress of caring for her elderly father who had been diagnosed with dementia. Coincidentally, his mother-in-law had received a similar diagnosis and was now living in his home, allowing him to witness the effects of dementia at first hand.
After using his existing skills to support his client in caring for her father he was interested to learn more about working in this area, both with carers and those living with dementia. As a result, he enrolled in the Nightingale Diploma and is now delighted to be a Nightingale Dementia Consultant.
