About me

Hi, my name is Dawn Gennings and I am a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist based in Walderslade, Kent.

I have worked in the care/mental health sector for over 30 years. My career began looking after vulnerable adults in the community and quickly progressed to the management of Domicilliary Care Agencies and Residential Care Homes. I worked extensively with patients with acquired brain injuries, learning disabilities, Dementia, Alzheimer's Disease, Huntingtons Disease and Mental health disorders such as Schizophrenia and Bipolar. Many of my clients also suffered with depression, stress, anxiety and panic attacks. During this time I qualified as a tutor in adult education and for the past 15 years I have been teaching and verifying the Care and Management programmes offered by City and Guilds, CACHE and Pearson Edexcel.

I have always been interested in how the mind works and how powerful it can be. About ten years ago I began to experience high levels of stress, anxiety and panic attacks. This caused me to visit my GP and I was diagnosed with a thyroid condition. I was very lucky as my illness was treated quickly and effectively with radio Iodine and my symptoms subsided. However, this did give me a real insight as to how frightening and isolating anxiety and panic attacks can be. Whilst I was waiting to have my Iodine treatment I did access several different types of therapy and these helped me enormously.  From that moment on I knew that I wanted to work with people who were struggling with similar issues. This led me to qualify as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and I now have my own practice in Walderslade Woods. The qualifications I gained allow me to use an integrated approach in my work. This means that I use a combination of techniques which include Hypnotherapy, CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy, NLP (neuro linguistic programming) and Life Coaching. This enables me to create a personal treatment plan for each of my clients ensuring the best possible outcome.

Training, qualifications & experience

I obtained my Diploma's in Hypnotherapy and EMDR with the Kent College of Hypnotherapy. I am also a practitioner in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Life Coaching.
