Costa Lambrias


Principal and Trainer

One of the 10 leading hypnotherapists in Britain is how the Independent on Sunday described Costa Lambrias.  After 20 years as a practising healer, Costa formally trained and qualified as a clinical hypnotherapist in 1990.

For the past 24 years, Costa has devised his own unique therapeutic processes, working with clients under the banner Costa describes as “therapy with consciousness”. This entails the therapist having an appreciation of the human condition and each person’s potential to lead a happy and fulfilled life. Most importantly, it involves having an understanding of how trauma, abuse, and suppressed emotions impact not only on the mind, but also on the body.

Specialising in building confidence and self-esteem, Costa devised a unique therapy called Inner Child Therapy which centres around treating the difficult mental and emotional memories stored in both the conscious and unconscious mind from the early years and adolescence. He has used this therapy to transform the lives of hundreds of people and has taught and trained hypnotherapists and psychotherapists around the world to use his practice.

Costa’s experience and reputation in hypnotherapy have gained him recognition in the UK and abroad. Costa has appeared on national and local TV and radio, and in newspapers and magazines. His expertise and enthusiasm for his subject matter have meant he is much in demand as a post-graduate tutor, regular workshop and seminar presenter at many UK hypnotherapy conferences, and as an international trainer.

Costa is the co-founder and former Chairman of the Hypnotherapy Association and sits on the current Board.
