Rafal Burchard Master of Sociology, (Ad. Dip. PsyC) (Dip. Hyp CS)
As a teenager I was inspired by the book "The Power of the Subconscious Mind" and since that then I have been committed to deepening my understanding of human behaviour and the underlying processes. As a result, I have achieved a Masters Degree in Sociology of Culture at Maria-Curie Sklodowska University and further developed my knowledge of the subject by selected self-study and professional courses of Leadership and Management, Violence de-escalation and prevention, Instructor (various topics) and Mentor.
Over the years, I have been working professionally and as a volunteer with people from different backgrounds, ages, and with various issues, helping people to achieve their best, by helping them to build up their confidence, self-esteem and guiding them towards a better future.
Counselling and Hypnotherapy study are the next step of my journey and I am committed to helping you to live your life entirely free from shadows of the past, free from stresses of everyday life and to help you to fulfil your dreams.

"The sessions I undertook with Rafal provided me with a number of invaluable benefits. Firstly, I was offered space to discuss sensitive issues and was listened to as an equal, with empathy and candour. Rafal, understanding my concerns, then worked to empower me with a toolkit full of skills that I can use to my advantage for the rest of my life."
"Rafal is an gifted psychotherapist who gave me practical ways to focus on my goals and disengage with my anxieties where other counsellors and psychotherapists had failed."
"I am amazed at the positive impact this has had on my life. I am able to now self hypnosis when feeling stressed or in pain and these symptoms in fact lessen each time I do this. Raf is an amazing teacher as well as therapist"
