about the nlp doctor

Graduating from Aberdeen University in 1981, Lewis Walker spent the next five years training in hospital general medicine, initially at Glasgow Royal Infirmary where he obtained the MRCP (UK) in 1984, then subsequently at Raigmore Hospital Inverness. In 1986 he began vocational training for general practice and in 1989 joined what is now a seven doctor training practice at Ardach Health Centre, Buckie, on the Moray Firth Coast. He was elected Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Glasgow in 1998. He is Honorary Senior Clinical Tutor at Aberdeen University and is involved in the teaching of medical students, foundation year doctors and registrars in general practice.  

In the early 90’s, fascinated by what made people “tick”, he developed a keen interest in behavioural change mechanisms, which led him to study both Classical and Ericksonian Hypnosis, together with Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP). To date he has undertaken certified courses at the level of Practitioner, Master Practitioner, Health Practitioner and Trainer of NLP. With numerous other short courses in addition attesting to his wide experience, he has also trained with many of the leaders and developers in the NLP field. He has the Certificate of Accreditation of the British Society of Medical and Dental Hypnosis (Scotland), and is also a Trainer of Hypnosis. He is the author of Consulting with NLP: neuro-linguistic programming in the medical consultation, Changing with NLP: a casebook of neuro-linguistic programming in medical practice and Persuasion in Clinical Practice: helping people make changes, all published by Radcliffe Publishing.  

He sees thousands of patients every year and uses NLP on a daily basis both as a communication tool in all consultations and also for specific therapeutic interventions across a wide spectrum of medical disorders. With this site he intends to provide practical information and education for health professionals and others using NLP with patients and clients. In his regular blog he will address many aspects of how to use NLP effectively with a whole host of medical conditions. When you sign up for the blog you will be able to make suggestions about topics that interest you and he will incorporate these into future postings...
