Coaching & Therapy in Cumbria, Lake District & North West
Mike Bell, B.A. (Hons)
Mike Bell has been offering professional coaching and therapeutic services for the past 17 years.
My therapy and coaching work is suited to a wide variety of situations. I deal with most of the challenges the 21st century throws at us. As well as this I specialise in weight loss, habits and addictions.
The best reference for my work are the successes over that time. I am able to offer you a robust and reassuring approach in Therapeutic support. My work in behavioural change has provided the catalyst required for many clients who are experiencing challenges, fears and worries, and who needed help in realising the changes they wish to make.
I take a holistic approach using a combination of hypnotherapy, therapy, NLP, and coaching techniques. The service I offer is personalised to each individual client. It can be difficult to change habits and fears through willpower alone because this is rooted in the subconscious; this controls nearly all our behaviour. This is where I can help you.
I am a Master Hypnotherapist, and highly qualified to understand, support and enable change and improvement.
Regulation and Accreditation
As a professional Therapist and Hypnotherapist I am registered with the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council), Reg Number 000056-E15, which is the U.K. Regulatory authority in the UK for therapists practicing in the field of complementary medicine. This register is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA). (https://cnhcregister.org.uk/newsearch/index.cfm)
My qualifications and experience also afford me registration with the GHR (General Hypnotherapy Register) (Registration no 3462) (http://www.general-hypnotherapy-register.com/mike-bell) and the GHSC (General Hypnotherapy Standards Council). This Council maintains a robust assessment and validation criteria for Practitioners such as myself, together with a comprehensive Code of Ethics and accessible Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure
Training and Study
As part of my ongoing development and to offer my clients a level of specialism unparalleled in the U.K., I am currently undertaking further training through the Milton Erikson Foundation in Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.A.
MILTON H. ERICKSON, M.D., is generally acknowledged to be the world’s leading practitioner of medical hypnosis. Erickson was both a psychiatrist and a psychologist, having received his medical degree and his master’s degree in psychology simultaneously. The Milton H. Erickson Foundation has grown to become one of the most globally recognized and influential organizations in the field of psychotherapy today. They specialize in training clinical and medical practitioners in the field of hypnotherapy.
The standard of training afforded by the Milton Erikson Foundation is extremely high, and I feel very fortunate in being given the opportunity to study from their Intensive Training Program.
In addition to the above, I have recently completed in 2018 my Masters level Certificate in Obesity and Weight Management at Chester University. This affords me additional clinical qualifications in therapeutic support for weight management with my clients.
I welcome all new clients. If you would like to talk to me in person before making an appointment, either on the phone or in person at my office in Cockermouth, please contact me by phone, text, or email.

“I have gambled for over 20 years, I always knew I had a problem but would never admit it. I finally plucked up the courage to seek help. After searching the internet I came across Mike Bell and thought I would give him a try. After meeting with him for the first session I have never thought about gambling and feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. He really put me at ease and make me think about what I wanted from life. I would truly recommend Mike for any kind of addiction you may have. He has changed my life and I couldn't thank him enough”.
“I have been on various diets for the last 10 years and just continued to put weight on. After 1 session with Mike, I changed my relationship to food and started to become a much healthier person. I have had three more sessions with Mike and I am steadily getting rid of the excess weight I have built up over the years. I feel that I have my life back again. Thank you for all of your help."
"I am a proficient and very committed amateur musician, and playing music in an ensemble is a huge part of my life. Over the past few years, I had been getting more and more nervous about playing in public, to the extent that I was considering giving up playing all together. I contacted Mike when I was feeling particularly dejected and, from our first meeting, I felt reassured that my nerves could be overcome. Mike’s professional and positive manner immediately put me at ease. He quickly began to understand my particular issues and I left the session feeling that I was able to be more in control during a performance. I have subsequently played in many concerts and the techniques he taught me have helped me to have a whole new enthusiasm and confidence in my ability to perform under pressure. Thanks to him, I can now enjoy playing again".
"We undertook a therapy session together just over two weeks ago and I must say, it has been fantastic.
My husband and I are following your coaching of the way of thinking and it is working. We are very happy with the results. Thank you very much for your help. We would definitely recommend your services to anybody".
