Toby Messer

Director / Therapist

Hi my name is Toby, and I founded BCS Mental Health Service, in 2015. The idea of this service, was to offer  multi disciplinary services under one roof. In 2019 I was able to bring onboard a wonderful team of experienced and passionate therapists and support staff to help me deliver this.    At BCS we are proud to offer a wide range of support including individual and couples counselling, hypnotherapy, as well as mental health training and workplace counselling packages.


As a therapist I use an integrative method, this means that I have the ability to use various approaches such as CBT, psychodynamic or person centred therapy so that my treatment is tailored to you.

In my practice I use a variety of techniques such as Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Coaching, Mindfulness, Neurolinguistic Programming, CBT and of course hypnosis during our time together. I am competent in a wide range of hypnotherapeutic techniques to help you feel better sooner!
