Cathie Gordon - PG Dip, MCCH, CHWM, BWRT
McKenzie Clinical Hypnotherapy can also offer you the latest therapy which is proving to be highly effective and recognized Worldwide.BWRT™ is a cutting edge therapy for the twenty-first century. ‘BWRT™’ stands for ‘Brain Working Recursive Therapy™’, created by one of the UK’s leading therapists and trainers. It’s a ‘content-free’ process that doesn’t rely on a therapist saying the right things or discovering private information or personal secrets. In fact, all I need to know is what you want to be able to do or to be able to stop doing.
I also use a combination of Hypnotherapy, NLP and coaching skills which can help you turn your life around. A professional therapist validated by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council and my ability to help "restore lives" gives me enormous pleasure.
I have helped adults with weight loss, phobia, ending relationships, anxiety and lack of confidence in themselves. I especially enjoy helping women to take away the fear of childbirth and I offer a Hypnobirthing plan.
I help with fear of death, exam nerves and many more issues which are holding people back from experiencing a "whole life". Now also working with children and teenagers to help them overcome habits such as bed wetting and helping them through important tests and exams. I offer a free telephone consultation for you to decide if I am the right therapist for you.

Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Information about health conditions (*)
Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.
Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
I offer Gut-Directed Hypnotherapy to help you manage the symptoms and enhance the quality of your life while living with IBS.
Recent research has found that 71% of patients responded well to hypnotherapy and most did not deteriorate over time. 200 patients with IBS were monitored after undergoing gut directed Hypnotherapy at the Withington hospital in Manchester, the first NHS hospital to offer a Hypnotherapy unit. Their symptoms were recorded including quality of life and stress levels before the treatment. The findings are evidence which shows that Hypnotherapy is helpful for managing the symptoms of IBS when directed holistically.

I have worked for more than 20 years in Local Government supporting people who were dealing with crisis in their lives. Through the use of NLP, Coaching and Hypnotherapy, I have seen the many positive changes that my support can make in achieving clearer goals and ambitions.
