Amanda Kerr, Hypnotherapist, Advanced Blast Technique® Practitioner
I am a fully qualified Hypnotherapist, Advanced Blast Technique® Practitioner, NLP practitioner and Mind Coach based in West London with over 10 years' experience. I offer fast and effective therapy for trauma, anxiety, depression, phobias and other issues using a variety of techniques. The powerful methods I use allow me to quickly get to the root cause of a client's presenting issue in a relaxed, supportive and confidential environment. Most issues can be sorted in 1-3 sessions although more complex cases may need up to 6.
The process starts with a free 20 minute consultation either on the phone or in person. This allows me to have a clear understanding of your presenting issue, background, and your desired outcome, and for me to explain how I propose to work with you. It also helps to establish rapport so that you feel comfortable before making a decision to work with me, and vice versa.
I tailor my therapy to your unique and individual needs. Past traumas can be resolved with the extremely fast and effective Blast Technique® which, using a light pen and eye movement, releases the emotions from those events and allows you to process them in a way which frees you from the negative impact of them. Most single layer traumas can be released in just one session. More complex multi-layer issues may require more sessions.
EFT (emotional freedom technique) is another powerful method for releasing trapped emotions from past experiences. I like to describe it as 'psychological acupuncture', it's a gentle method of tapping on acupressure points to release emotions and sensations and sometimes pain.
RTT (rapid transformational therapy) is a highly effective method created by top hypnotherapist Marisa Peer, whom I trained with, which works by identifying, during hypnosis, the root cause of presenting issues, leading to understanding, empowerment and ultimately the ability to release the limiting belief, behaviours or feelings caused by it. This then leads to transformation, where the outdated behaviours etc are replaced by new desired, positive and more beneficial ones through positive suggestions.
I may also use NLP (Neuro linguistic programming) and coaching to enhance my therapy if appropriate.
I am extremely passionate about what I do and love helping people make positive changes to their lives.
I specialise in trauma, anxiety, depression, self-esteem and confidence issues, but also work with a whole range of other issues such as weight loss, smoking cessation, addictions, phobias, unexplained infertility and many more.
So many of us are held back by limiting beliefs and behaviours which we've developed through our lifetime, usually in the earlier years of our lives. Things as simple as a humiliating comment from a teacher in front of the class, an innocent but hurtful remark about our appearance by an old partner, a momentary blank during the school play or presenting to an audience, a turbulent plane journey, a frightening experience with a dog .. these are all one-off incidents which can, in some cases, trigger long-term limiting beliefs / behaviours and phobias.
Call me on 07867 533344 and we can organise a free 20 minute consultation.

'I consider myself to be very lucky to have found Amanda. The journey she took me through to improve my confidence and sense of self esteem has been life changing. Her ability to listen and to help me navigate the depths of my feelings in a safe and trusted space have been outstanding. I would highly recommend her.'
'I feel so blessed for crossing Amanda’s path at a time in my life when everything was falling apart! I started feeling much better from the first session when I released a lot emotions with the EFT technique, it was unbelievably powerful. The hypnotherapy was amazing for my self-confidence and for moving on. Today, I am off all my medication, I feel very calm, in control, strong and confident. And, most importantly, I believe that I am an even better mother than I was before. Amanda has been amazing all along this process, always listening, kind and caring, never judgmental, supporting me all the way. She is very approachable and kind and an extremely talented therapist !! Thank you Amanda x'
'I came to Amanda at my all-time low. Everything around me was in pieces and I even considered suicide. I only had 6 sessions with Amanda and that was enough to make me into a whole different person. She made me see clearly and breathe easily. She found the root to all my issues and destroyed them one by one resulting in a clear conscience and little/ no anger left in my system. She was more than someone who helped; she was a friend and someone I could contact whenever necessary with any problem that was bothering me. Amanda Kerr turned my life around. Thank you for everything!'
'Seeing Amanda has changed my life. After only two sessions my phobia of eyes was gone and after being so severely phobic for years, within a week of seeing her I was wearing contact lenses - something I thought I would never achieve. I now feel very confident and happier about myself. Everyone with a phobia, whether it is rational or irrational will know that it can be very embarrassing and sometimes affect day to day life. Amanda was understanding and sympathetic and made me feel welcome and at ease.'
'Amanda has helped me deal with a lot of subconscious thoughts that got in the way of my body overcoming major chronic health issues. Since seeing Amanda, I am much more aware of myself, the root causes of my illness and I am generally a calmer and more mindful person. It is a life changing experience and I would recommend Amanda and hypnotherapy to anyone.'
'I had piled on the weight and was feeling really negative about myself and my looks. Amanda worked with me not just in looking at my relationship with food, but also my self esteem. She has been so supportive and empathetic that I have found it really easy and natural to open up and be honest, and thus receptive to rebuilding my confidence. The hypnosis itself has resulted in my approaching food in a completely different way and the weight has been falling off! Not once has it felt uncomfortable or challenging, it has been very natural and easy and it has absolutely worked! I cannot recommend Amanda enough, this has been one of the best investments in myself I have ever made!'
'Mine was a common, sensitive male problem so my first inclination was to seek male professional help but I heard about Amanda and had a long telephone discussion followed by three one-hour sessions. Amanda is a very easy person to talk to and she handled the process with great skill and sensitivity. Delighted to say things are back to normal. Must be magic! The first call is difficult to make but you won't regret it'.
'I just had to write to say a huge thank you for the quality time we spent together. I was in a very difficult place last year and in just 3 sessions a huge burden was lifted from me. I was particularly impressed with EFT. You are a remarkably talented therapist and one I highly recommend to everyone.'
'I went to Amanda to deal with my phobia of flying. I had a very severe fear of flying and would have panic attacks when travelling if there was any turbulence but in fact I just did not enjoy the experience of flying at all. I had 3 sessions with Amanda and I found the first session very emotional. Since seeing Amanda I have had several flights over to Ireland (8 flights in fact) and this is something that I would have absolutely dreaded in the past. I have been calm and comfortable on all the flights and I am immensely grateful to Amanda for helping me overcome this phobia.'
'I am very happy that for some reason your website "jumped out" to me and that I got in touch with you, because whatever you/we are doing...it's working! Thank you so much! Thanks again for the amazing experiences and for helping me the way you have! I guess a big part of hypnosis is about feeling comfortable and safe, and that is exactly the environment you create in your lovely home and with your kind and caring personality! Thank you'
