Location: Edinburgh

My name is Rafal Burchard.

I hold Master degree in Sociology, level 3 Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Counselling (Dip. Hyp CS) and Chrysalis Level 4 Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Ad. Dip. PsyC). I am a member of the National Hypnotherapy Society, National Counselling Society and Chartered Management Institute. Nominated for Brave@Heart award 2017. 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 deescalation 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.
The 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.
