Kate Boyd CMCOSCA BSCH (Assoc.)
I am a hypnotherapist and counsellor. I work with adults experiencing a wide range of issues including: anxiety, depression, stress, bullying, loss and bereavement, separation and divorce, redundancy and relationship issues, low self esteem and confidence.
Clients have found hypnotherapy useful for problems such as: weight management, stopping smoking, pain management, unwanted habits and phobias.
The practice is in central Inverness opposite the rail and bus stations.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have one of the medical conditions starred above, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies or treatments.
Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Please call me to discuss any other issues that I might be able to help with.
My charges are £60 per hour. There is a range of fees for employers and organisations available on request.
The first session allows us to make an assessment of your problems or issues. Hypnotherapy is often short taking between three and six sessions.
I also work as a Transactional Analysis counsellor and can offer counselling where that is appropriate.
