Leonie Garner Dip Hyp CS, DipHB, MHbA
I am a fully qualified Hypnotherapist treating a range of challenges, phobias and issues. I'm also a specialist in Mindfulness, IBS, Weight Loss, Anxiety, and Hypnobirthing. I offer mobile hypnotherapy as well as at my relaxing retreat-style studio, so that you can choose either relaxing time out to focus on you in the Kent countryside, or have a session in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Hypnosis is a powerful tool for deep and lasting change, but your experience will always be relaxing, empowering and enlightening. Every session includes a personalised follow up hypnotherapy recording to really cement and support the work we do together.
We all see the world in different ways. Hypnotherapy quickly discovers and adjusts your unique way of thinking to more positive and healthy thoughts, habits and behaviours. Transformative sessions will help you find freedom to change and grow to your full potential, whatever challenges you face.
If you have an upcoming holiday that makes you feel anxious, simply because of the flight, or any other phobias that are limiting your enjoyment in life, hypnosis and NLP techniques can quickly adjust your automatic reactions from panic to calm, in just a few sessions.
I enable clients to fully understand their eating habits and behaviours, and use hypnosis to motivate lasting, positive changes to their lifestyle. The focus is on health and wellbeing, eating well, and feeling great about themselves, whatever the goal.
Hypnotherapy greatly benefits those struggling with fertility by creating deep relaxation and calm, reducing adrenalin and cortisol, hence creating the best internal environment to conceive. Our brain chemistry creates our body chemistry, so I teach simple Mindfulness techniques along with hypnotherapy to support couples undergoing IVF navigate the process, and feel relaxed and in control.
I use a clinically proven 7 session protocol* pioneered by the London College of Clinical Hypnosis to systematically and successfully treat IBS, allowing sufferers the freedom to be fully independent, reduce and manage their symptoms, and even eradicate them completely.
This is offered as a package and at a reduced rate.
With quality of life improving in 90% of patients using Hypnotherapy (NHS figures), and Hypnotherapy for IBS now officially recommended by NICE, there really is an answer to all those troublesome, distressing symptoms.
Simple, easy to follow Mindfulness techniques, combined with contextual Hypnotherapy will provide you with all the tools and techniques you need to re train your mind, significantly reducing and/or eliminating panic, fear, anxious thoughts, habits and behaviours from your life.
As a clinical hypnotherapist, I am able to adapt and tailor Hypnobirthing specifically to you, so you get the best possible benefits. I'm comprehensively trained with KG Hypnobirthing, The Hypnobirthing Association, and accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. In addition, I teach the Mindful Mamma Hypnobirthing Programme - a practical, powerful and extremely effective combination of Mindfulness with Hypnobirthing, taught only by qualified birth professionals.
Having had two Hypnobirthed babies I am particularly well placed to understand, support and inform mums-to-be, helping them to have the best birth experience, whatever that might be. I also offer free, ongoing support by phone or email right up to the birth of your baby.
Around 70% of Hypnobirthing mums need no pain relief during labour, and are less likely to have medical interventions. Bonding and breastfeeding are established quickly and more easily, reducing the likelihood of postnatal depression.

What my clients say:
Leonie has a reassuringly warm, intuitive style which I found instantly disarming, not to mention one of the most soothing voices out there for hypnosis. I got so much from my therapy; she had a brilliant knack for understanding the sub-text of what I was saying and for identifying my underlying issues and consequential behaviour patterns that were the cause of my problem. I had a very emotional experience (in a good way) and still feel wonderfully liberated, light and optimistic." P. Pande.
"I was scared of flying, and it was getting progressively worse as I got older.
I have also been very sceptical of any form of hypnotherapy, hypnotism ‘mumbo jumbo’. Not any more. In just 2 sessions, together with a recording I can listen to at my convenience, Leonie has cured me! I have since been on 6 flights of varying distances, and not only not felt scared, but also felt at ease.
I’d strongly recommend giving this a try if you have any phobias you just don’t want any more!" L. Eckersley
"Having hypnotherapy with Leonie was an entirely pleasurable experience, her friendly but professional manner put me instantly at ease. I went to Leonie with low self esteem and confidence, and even after the first session I felt lifted and more positive, and after 3 sessions I was more relaxed, more confident, and had a greater sense of perspective and most of all felt much happier and finally believed in myself. It's been several months since I saw Leonie and I still feel great." H. Brearley.
"After just one session for business confidence I have gone on to win an award for my company and gained many more customers. Highly recommend to shake away your business nerves." Aly Cranston, owner of The Rainy Day Box Co."
What Hypnobirthing Clients Say:
"I wanted to thank you so much for your session I genuinely believe it helped me have an amazing experience. My labour in total was an 1 hour and 40 mins I'm still in shock I did it that quick. I pushed/breathed for only 20 mins with no tearing. I think your story helped, lol. I had a great midwife and such a positive experience. I'm so pleased. Once again thank you and I will definitely recommend your services. My princess is also so calm which is definitely a result of my calm birth." Roxanne.
"I feel like I have so many tools I can use now, and am feeling so much more positive and excited about meeting our baby. I feel it is the most positive thing we have done during our pregnancy, not only for me, but for us as a couple, and also for our baby... I took a lot more from the session than I had been expecting to, in many ways." N.D.
"We had the most wonderful birth experience and have you to thank for that! It was everything we dreamed of and more. He was born by candle light in our birth pool at home.
I had mild period pain on and off on Sunday but we went for a walk and for afternoon tea , done some gardening etc.Woke up at 2am with strong period pains coming every 3 mins lasting for 40-50 secs, so called the midwife they came 30 mins later and I was already 6cm dilated. Both my midwives were so supportive of our birth plan, I got to 8/9cm before having gas and air and getting into pool and stopped having the gas for the push. Placenta was delivered naturally and no stitches needed, he fed straight away, we were all tucked up in bed after a shower and tea and toast by 11am . THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING THIS ALL POSSIBLE !!!" Love Amy
