Services -
Hypnosis is often likened to being in a day dream, where you are fully conscious but somewhat unaware of things and people around you and if you needed to be fully aware you would become so immediately. This is a light state of hypnosis and so you can see that it happens to most of us naturally on a daily basis.

Hypnotherapy is when you are guided by the therapist to achieve a very relaxed state which in turn allows you to be receptive to positive suggestion. The therapist works ethically and sensitively to allow you to gain the change you desire.

No one experience will be like another, it is a very individual thing, however most people find hypnosis a very pleasant experience. Clients leave the session feeling relaxed, calm and focused. It is important to remember that you are always in control.

What can I expect in a hypnotherapy session?
You can expect to make positive changes in the way you think and behave. Your willingness to engage in the process is the most important thing. Henry Ford famously said "Whether you think you can or think you can't, either way you're right." Believing in the process is key to achieving your goals.You will be guided by the voice of the therapist who is trained in the art of facilitating positive change in a client.

How many hypnotherapy sessions will I need?
It may be that a client needs four to six sessions to create lasting change. Some clients can achieve their goals in just one session. It is a very individual thing.

"I can’t be hypnotised"
And now we're back to Henry Ford's famous quote above. As long as you’re willing to relax into the hypnotherapy session and work with the therapist you will achieve a state of hypnosis.

Kate offers a client focused, solution based approach to create change to get you the results you really want. Hypnotherapy, Coaching and Conversational Change is a safe, effective experience supported by the latest in nueroscince. The unique blend used by Kate ensures a bespoke delivery to the client.

Conversational Coaching This helps clients to move forward and set personal and professional goals that give them the life they really want.

How does it work?
Coaching is conversational change. The role of the coach is to assist the coachee to find their own solutions to problems or to achieve goals through conversation. This can take place at work, at home, or simply meeting in a coffee shop. It can also help deal with issues and challenges before they become major problems as well as enhancing performance.

Stress reduction in your life or work

"Our family had experienced a recent traumatic event that took the form of a large scale fire which required us to flee our beds in the middle of the night. In the weeks following the fire this resulted in extremely high levels of anxiety on my behalf, panic attacks at the smell of smoke, not sleeping properly increasing and disabilatating levels of Obsessive Compulsive type behaviours. Kate waded in like a knightess in shining armour flying the banners of a positive, anxiety free future and she delivered exactly what she promised. Her friendly, relaxed approach made me feel comfortable and safe and able to relax enough to fully engage in her confident, knowledgeable and productive therapy. I am now looking forward to a future without unnecessary fear and far clearer more positive approach to dealing with problems. I am so much more relaxed and my anxieties have settled down to their previously normal levels. Thank you Kate for giving me the ladder out of my personal black hole."

"I saw kate at one of the lowest parts of my life. Struggling to cope with losing my mum to cancer. I couldn't cope and was so unhappy that lead to a spiral of over eating and more unhappiness. Yet in one session kate gave me my confidence back. I left the room feeling exhausted but by the next day I was literally bouncing , full of joy and able to cope with anything. Everyone noticed a difference in me. I even lost two stone in next two months but that was a bonus compared to having found my smile again. Would I recommend her? Yes yes yes."

"Kate Guest is a fantastic motivational coach and I have benefited greatly from her expertise and passion for her work. I can highly recommend finding out more for yourself."

Kate is passionate about helping people create positive change. Her own personal growth through hypnotherapy and NLP has charged her with a desire to help others.

Please contact Kate if you would like to discuss how her therapy can be helpful to you NOW and in the future.

How Kate became a Life Coach and Hypnotherapist
After 32 years as a Registered General Nurse Kate decided to take a course in Neuro Linguistic Programming after having visited a Hypnotherapist herself. She found it so useful and empowering that she went on to do the Practitioner Course. Life was beginning to change positively for her as a direct result of 'practising what she preached' using NLP, and led to the introduction of hypnosis. Kate felt she had a natural affinity for delivering hypnotherapy. She also felt that NLP and Hypnotherapy needed to be taught together and so found a course offering both and continued her studies in the glorious Highlands of Scotland. On her return to Devon she decided that the way forward for her was to embark on a life of helping others through coaching and hypnosis.

Until recently Kate worked as a Primary Care Nurse and is still up to date with current practice and understanding of health issues such as obesity, anxiety, asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease which help support her work as a therapist In these areas. Her aim is to continually be delivering a professional, confidential, client focused service.

Individual clients can be seen in Exeter, Bovey Tracey and Teignmouth. Kate also offers Skype sessions.

Kate lives in Devon with Stuart her husband, Breeze their Sprocker and Bella the Patterdoodle .
