Easton Hamilton is a senior accredited psychotherapist, clinical hypnotherapist, supervisor, nutritionist and holistic practitioner. He’s been involved in the field of mental health for over 40 years and is the founder and director of Reach – which offers an holistic model, specialising in health solutions for mind, body and spirit.
For more than 30 years Easton has been building a new and original approach to personal development, based on a combination of research and clinical practice. The philosophy that has emerged from this work has created a unique way of working that has come to be known as ‘The Reach Approach’. The Reach Approach is a carefully crafted, clear and coherent model that addresses what it means to be human.
Easton believes passionately that a ‘one-pronged’ approach to human health, mental or physical, simply doesn’t work and as a result, we’re only ever treating the symptoms and never truly addressing the causes. He argues that if we are treating the human condition, we must meet the needs of the three main aspects, mind, body and spirit, and address how these then interface with their environment.
The Reach Approach methodology is employed throughout our extensive counselling and psychotherapy network. We have 75 practitioners in the UK and Ireland, and 15 satellites in numerous countries across Europe, America, South America and Australasia.
Our accredited postgraduate training programmes are producing a new generation of therapists, who equally understand that a more creative and person specific approach is needed. Ours is a model where psychology and nutrition, spirituality and science, biology and sociology, past and present, are all considered equal contributors in the story of healing and recovery.
Easton has written hundreds of articles and is the primary author of the Reach library of materials. He is the voice behind most of our popular guided meditations. He oversees Reach’s numerous activities including: therapeutic practice, supervision, training, research, and our many external initiatives. He is also the author of four books, which cover topics including science, history, psychology, philosophy and spirituality – and how they relate to the human condition.
Synergy: the cure for all ills, (published in 2014), is the only publication where all of the seminal principles of The Reach Approach can be found in one place. It has already had extensive success in many countries and is seen as a valuable handbook for those looking for sustainable solutions.
Easton’s fourth book, Become Part of the Solution, is now available (August 2021). As the title suggests, this is a book that invites us to find a way to contribute to the change the world needs right now. Become Part of the Solution develops the synergistic principles of its predecessor, but goes further, as it answers many of the questions about how we can effect positive change when the odds seem against us.
