Kate Banton DIP Hyp CS, Ad. DIP CP MHS
Welcome to my profile, thanks for visiting.
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.

'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
