Welcome to my profile, thanks for visiting.
*Due to the current situation, please be assured I am here to support you. I am now only offering phone and video sessions, personalised hypnosis recordings are also available, please get in touch to find out more or book your free 30min phone consultation.*
I'm Kate and I have ten years experience of offering hypnotherapy, integrated counselling and emotional freedom technique (EFT) commonly known as 'tapping' to those needing to make changes to their lifestyle and well-being. I am based in Stapleford, Nottingham, which is easily accessible from both the Nottingham and Derby areas. My aim is to give you the tools and techniques that you can use outside of the sessions, whenever you need to.
Maybe you don't know what needs to be changed but you know changes need to be made, it's a journey and it's all about taking the first step into the unknown with me guiding and supporting you. I really enjoy helping people to make positive, permanent changes in their lives to overcome what they need, and I have experience of many issues including anxiety, depression, low self esteem, grief and weight loss.
I offer a free, no obligation, initial consultation of 30 minutes where we can discuss your goals and needs and you can ask me any questions you may have. I will explain all about the therapy you are interested in and how I can help you and should you want too, we will make an appointment for another session. Thereafter, sessions are hourly and ideally weekly. All sessions are professional, individual and confidential and in a comfortable, safe environment where you can start to make the changes needed.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions or to book in for your free 30 minute phone consultation.

'I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who required help to get over a trauma or worry or an issue. Thank you for your kindness and your help.' Steve
'Kate is an empath with a rare gift of exceptional insight and wisdom beyond her years. I feel as though I am in the hands of someone who can fully and sensitively support me and my needs, which is always affirming and reassuring.' Lisa
'I would like to let you know how much the therapy sessions helped me with my facial tics. It used to annoy me so much. Now it's rare I think about it and I barely do it anymore. The hypnotherapy opens your mind so much and when we went back in history to my childhood where it first started, it was so powerful I couldn't stop myself fom wanting to cry. We got down to the root of the problem. I would highly recommend you and wouldn't think twice if i needed your services again.' Danny
'On the plane, so far so good and planning on booking long haul now.' Barry
'I listened to your relaxation audio and I honestly had the best nights sleep in a long time....thank you. I highly recommend to anyone who hasn't listened.' Sarah'
'I've been using your strategies to help me with sleeping and apart from some downs occasionally, I've managed to remain strong so thank you.' Anna
'Best thing I ever did & still doing, life's changed so much for better so much more positive, thank you' Jade
'Thanks for everything, you've been amazing. I very much appreciate what you've helped me with.' Emma
'I just wanted to express my gratitude for all your help and support during a difficult period in my life. I have never received counselling or hypnotherapy before and was very apprehensive before my first visit but i needn't be as you provided a safe environment for me to feel comfortable enough to be able to open up and explore my emotions and feelings. The tips and techniques you provided are invaluable. Thank you so much.' Kate
'Today we went out for Christmas dinner. We pre-ordered so he chose what he wanted and had time to prepare for it. He has made me the proudest Mum ever today by coming with us without stressing about it beforehand, trying things and enjoying what he did eat. Thank you so much for all you have done for us.'Jane
'I reached out to Kate after what had been a very difficult 12 months for me dealing with the illness and subsequent bereavement of someone very dear to me and which sparked a significant change in my life. Kate helped me through the transition, unlocking emotions and enabling me to let them go so that I can move on and improve relationships with others around me. I had some reservations as to Kate's methods but I was willing to give them a go and was pleasantly surprised. She has a sensitive approach and a very calm manner. I found myself looking forward to our sessions. After a period of time without therapy, I turned to Kate again for help. A lengthy telephone call with her encouraged me to go back and explore what was causing me concern. Again her method really hit the spot with me and she has helped me to feel very differently about many things that were causing me worry and anxiety. Kate is very thorough and takes time to go back over what we had worked on to ensure that I was satisfied with the result, before finishing our sessions. I know though, that her door is always open.' Jo
'Thanks so much, it has broken the cycle and she no longer seems to get anxious or even nervous! She was like a different child on the plane - she took her work sheets but didn't even need them! Just been to the dentist and she was amazing. Thanks again.' Em
'Kate is such a lovely lady, she has a genuine warmth and compassion. If you are struggling with a problem, I would recommend getting in touch with Kate.' Dawn
'EFT - Highly recommended. Best money i've ever spent.'Kate
'I just want to say thank you as my son is doing really well. He does try more foods, still not loads but he doesn't get anxious about food like he used too, which is brilliant. He didn't stress about the food too much at prom, so it didn't spoil his night and we are going out for Christmas dinner and he's looking forward too it 'there'll be something I like' was his response when I asked if it was ok - this never used to happen. So definitely a change in mindset, which is great and I'm really proud of him. What you do is life changing. He has to implement changes but you have given him the skills to do it. Thank you, we will definitely be in touch in the future, should we have any issues.' Jane
'I recently went to Kate for a session of EFT or 'tapping' to try and deal with feelings of sadness/anger and anxiety bought on by traumatic events over the past few years, which have in turn affected my physical health. I've never had any form of therapy or counselling with anyone before so I went into the experience with an open mind. I'm so glad I went! Kate made me feel incredibly comfortable and I found her very open and so easy to talk to. She tailored the tapping experience as we went along by asking questions and monitoring my mood and also my train of thought.
Kate was lovely and understanding with a very calm and professional approach and that's what made my tapping experience so effective. I was able to really let myself go and delve into my emotional headspace in order to gain the most from my experience. I also came away, not only with a feeling of achievement and strength that I had actually defeated a few demons but with a really good technique that I can try by myself at home (if the mood arises or the black cloud descends!) Needless to say, I will be returning to Kate for EFT and would highly recommend her'. Nat
"Kate was brilliant and it is the best decision I have made to speak and start working with her to address my panic attacks. Before our sessions, I thought there could be a magic wand to make it all better, but life isn't like that, I will always have to work hard at it but feel better placed to do so now. Kate listened, she never belittled anything or made me feel silly. She was very understanding and supported me immensely. We used theories to explain how I was feeling, related them to my life as a guide to look at how to change my mind set and overcome a huge amount of anxiousness. Kate put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. I'd therefore recommend anyone who feels anxious or nervous to see her as everyone has different personalities and it's about finding the best person to help you, I feel very lucky that Kate and I worked so well together. I would not hesitate to recommend Kate to anyone who needs help." Rex
"I met Kate whilst training on Dip Hypnotherapy (trainer Chris Padro) in 2008. Since we've attended training days and workshops together, hypnoanalysis (free association) EFT Emotional Freedom Technique and NLP (Nuero Lingusitic Programming) working closely through our CPD (Continuing Professional Development), Kate guided me through twelve sessions of hypnoanalysis, therefore giving me first hand experience of her as a practitioner. Kate has the ability to work insightfully and intuitively, a rare quality, whilst enabling the client to work at their own pace through impasses (feeling stuck) towards positive outcomes. Kate's insight gives her an advantage, underpinning her ability to work effectively within the helping profession. I'm now based in Cornwall however, Kate still remains a close trusted member of my support circle and we meet frequently both in the Midlands and SouthWest." Lisa
"I have had six amazing sessions with Kate Banton for weight loss. Kate is very caring and thoughtful, with a very easy to follow voice, which helped me get into relaxation. She has helped me to remove negative thoughts towards food and helped me change to realistic, healthy positive ones. She also helped me with stress and anxiety towards food. What I've gained is that I'm more relaxed around food now, I now think before I choose what to eat, I also stop eating when I'm full. Best of all my clothes are feeling looser and I feel more confident in myself. Kate also made me a CD for aftercare, which I'm finding is keeping me positive and on track. This is the first time i've tried this type of treatment with a hypnotherapist/counsellor and I would recommend it, as it is tailored to each persons individual needs." Nicole
"I would like to thank you for all your help, very professional and a major factor in me passing my driving test today after a few attempts and suffering nerves. All the best Kate and can't thank you enough." Gill
"Thanks Kate Banton, such an amazing experience highly recommended that was an amazing past life regression!" Enrique
