Hello, I am a fully qualified and accredited Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist. I have over 15 years experience working with people who are experiencing mental and emotional difficulties. My training is scientifically evidence based, and I use logical, simple and powerful techniques to get the very best possible result for my clients. Hypnotherapy, as with all types of therapy requires commitment from clients to change to allow them to achieve their goals.
I work in a friendly, relaxed, and non judgemental way, and also offer support between sessions via e-mail and text message (inclusive in the cost of a session), and where appropriate on the telephone. Each session is tailored specifically to meet individuals needs.
I like to use a wide range of techniques to help clients, these include, hypnosis, mindfulness, positive visualisation, affirmations, cognitive behavioural techniques, and I also teach self hypnosis. These techniques can be practiced at home to help you get the most out of your sessions.
I work with people suffering from a wide range of conditions, including: Stress, Anxiety, Low Self Confidence and / or Self Esteem, Phobias, Habits, Loss, Insomnia, C.F.S / M.E, Confusion and Public Speaking. Please see below for a full list, or contact me for more information.
I find Hypnotherapy can be extremely powerful and effective for a wide variety of issues, please see below for more information about the conditions I work with.
An example testimonial from one of the clients I have worked with:
"Anxiety had crippled my life for as long as I can remember. Fear of a wide range of every day supposedly enjoyable situation ranging from parties, to taking the kids swimming would send me into a spiral of anxiety and depression, sometimes making me physically sick from the stress. I had always tried to hide the fear, acting as confident as possible, and avoiding situations I dreaded. I was basically papering over the cracks in my life. Once the kids were of a certain age it became impossible to avoid all the situation I feared. Hypnotherapy had been recommended to me in the past, but I have always been the biggest sceptic going, and had always dismissed the idea, then I met Kate. I booked an appointment and the usual anxiety kicked in a week before our meeting. Not only did I leave my first session realising my anxiety was unfounded, I left my first session feeling genuinely elated, refreshed, and confident. I cannot stress how great the difference was after one session. After 3 sessions I had to go to a party, the kind of party that would normally send me stressing out, but this time it was different. I not only got through the party, I actually enjoyed it! I started conversations with people (something I would never normally do). I also had a smile on my face, instead of the normal uncomfortable frown. Kate is a very likeable person and incredibly easy to talk to, she is very understanding, and I would recommend her to anyone. In a nutshell Hypnotherapy worked for me". Pete.
