Chameleonology: Mind Power

Tom Gavaghan

Make a positive change in your life

Clinical hypnotherapist Tom Gavaghan brings great empathy to his work. That stems from personal experience. When young, being thrown into a swimming pool left him terrified of water. Hypnotherapy enabled Tom to conquer that fear; he is now a deep sea diver.

Fascinated by the mind’s power – and after a successful career in the hospitality industry – Tom re-trained, qualifying as a hypnotherapist in 2008. Through his West London practice, Chameleonology, he provides solution-focused treatment for an array of issues: coping with grief, loss and separation; building confidence and self-esteem; and overcoming stress, anxiety and phobias. ‘It’s always fundamental to forge a rapport with every new client,’ Tom explains. ‘First we chat on the phone and then meet for an hour or so (both are free).

‘Being in trance is actually a pleasant state. Put simply, the conscious mind takes a break – like being immersed in a book – and we then tap into the subconscious, which is where therapeutic change happens. Each session takes an hour and clients can choose to come to my therapy room or I’ll visit them at home. The process is safe, natural and very rewarding.’

The company publishes four flagship magazines (Chelsea Locals, Chiswick Locals, Richmond Locals and Hammersmith Locals) with more launches planned in London and across the UK. The prime focus of each of these quarterly magazines is to showcase and support the independent traders and small businesses who do so much to give these areas their individual retail character and community spirit. This is achieved through dedicated advertorials which are written, designed and photographed by an experienced team lead by Neil McKelvie.

In every issue, these advertorials are complemented by feature articles which turn the spotlight on different aspects of neighbourhood life and interviews with notable local figures.In addition to appearing in the magazines, every advertorial is also published in the Keep Things Local newsletters, on the website and on social media.
