Katie Pugh Hypnotherapy
Katie Pugh (DSFH) (HPD), Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist
Hello, I am a Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist offering treatments for a wide range of conditions and disorders including stress, anxiety, depression, weight-loss, insomnia, IBS, fears and phobias, low confidence, OCD, performance enhancement (for work, sport or school), alcohol moderation, PTSD, stopping smoking and much more.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy combines psychotherapy with hypnotic techniques and this can be highly effective in helping people transform their lives by regaining control over their thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
As a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist I will encourage you to think about how you want things to be in a positive way rather than focusing on your problems. In my sessions this 'talking therapy' is followed by hypnosis which will help you to make your preferred future a reality by embedding beneficial suggestions into your subconscious mind.
Please do get in touch to discuss how we can work together to change your life in a positive way. At the free initial consultation I will be able to give you an insight into how I can help.

'I cannot say how massively you have helped my daughter overcome her anxiety. After suffering from the effects of being bullied she became so anxious that just to walk in to the school and even see pupils in the school uniform caused her to breakdown and become so anxious that she couldn't physically cope anymore.One lazy Sunday morning I googled Hypnotherapy and saw your details and decided to bring her along. I really don't think that we thought it would work but were desperate to try anything.How wrong we were. After the initial consultation and 3 sessions she is back at school and coping with seeing the students that she had the problem with. She is so much happier in herself and handles everyday problems much better also. The change is drastic.. its amazing.I would highly recommend this therapy to anyone, we cannot thank you enough.Katie is a lovely, gentle lady who puts you at ease straight away.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you'
'Katie has helped me to lose 12.5 pounds in 8 weeks. Thanks to Katie I have completely gone off sugary foods and junk food, I am eating healthy foods and drinking lots of water (which I have never even liked before and now I enjoy it). Katie is fantastic at her job and I highly recommend her for any help you need.'
'I cannot recommend Katie Pugh enough. At first I was a little apprehensive but Katie's professional but friendly approach put me totally at ease. The feeling of dread and anxiety that which I had suffered with for years lifted after just a couple of times meeting with Katie. After just a couple of sessions I generally felt much more relaxed and optimistic. Even my close friends noticed the change in me. Katie has made a massive difference to my life and has given me the skills to deal with any feelings of anxiety I may experience. I will be forever grateful for the help which Katie has given me'
'Just wanted to leave Katie a review. I saw her for help with my motivation for losing weight and in particular help to stop snacking. I have been amazed and impressed with what she has managed to do. I had 8 sessions and in that time went from hopeless chocolate addict to healthy eater. It was a really therapeutic, supportive and surprisingly enjoyable experience. I have re-joined Weight Watchers and have lost weight every week for 6 weeks. A mini-miracle for me! Thanks Katie Pugh'
'I was sceptical of hypnotherapy when I first started my treatments, but Katie's soft nature and professionalism made me feel at ease. She clearly explained the theory behind hypnotherapy which was very informative. I believe Katie and hypnotherapy have allowed me to gain confidence and motivation towards weight loss and exercise. I can't recommend her highly enough.'
(Since our hypnotherapy sessions, Michelle has gone on to lose over 2 stone having taken up exercise and embarked on a fitness boot camp with Nikki - see below)
'I saw Katie around 8 times through July and August, I was bit nervous of hypnotherapy but thought I would give it a chance and I'm so glad I did! Katie immediately put me at ease with her friendly manner and explained how everything worked. Since the hypnotherapy I have embarked on a new fitness plan and lost 1 stone 4 pounds so far, I really believe that I wouldn't have had the motivation to do this without the help of Katie, my evening eating habits have completely changed, I no longer eat everything in sight and often go to bed without even thinking about snacking! Thank you so much for giving me a fantastic start to my weight loss journey.'
(Since our hypnotherapy sessions, Nikki has gone on to lose 3 stone having taken up exercise and embarked on a fitness boot camp with Michelle - see above)
'I took my 12 year old daughter to see Katie as she was suffering from panic attacks and anxiety. These had been exacerbated by an incident at school. Katie was reassuring, gentle and understanding towards my daughter. The download Katie gave to her has been magical!!!, relaxing my daughter at bedtime (when her anxiety is at its worst) and getting her into a good sleep pattern. The actual sessions with Katie were a revelation and have given my daughter a new-found confidence. I cannot recommend her enough and wouldn't hesitate to use Katie again.'
