About me

What do I offer?

As a Kent and Surrey based qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, I use a range of different therapies to help you to live your best life, and to set yourself free. I work at two clinical addresses in Edenbridge, Options Salon and Eden Sports Clinic. At both paces I offer help with overcoming anxiety, insomnia, phobias and improving sports performance. In addition I help clients with stress, relaxation and banishing annoying habits. Clients discover that they enjoy my compassionate manner, and regain lost self esteem and emotional wellbeing.

What can you expect?

To feel a lot better as we work together to help you to set yourself free from barriers to mental wellbeing and stress. The initial consultation is free. No hard sell, just getting to know each other and understanding your difficulties. following on from the initial conversation we will explore your difficulties in more depth before deciding on a the objectives for the session and a suitable treatment plan. With your agreement we will then proceed to treatment. Following each session you will receive a suitable recording and possibly some activities to try between sessions. Before you leave each session the decision is yours whether to continue, and we will review your progress each time.

What treatments do you offer?

Help with Insomnia and sleep issues. Help for anxiety and excessive worrying. Help for stress - relaxation techniques for you to use and recordings to help in between times. Help for phobias and anxiety attacks. Help for self esteem, social anxiety and shyness. Help for healthy eating and life choices.

I use a range of evidence based methods. My training course at the UK College of Hypnotherapy is approved by the British Psychological Society because it is a rigorous training based on scientifically proven methods and evidence based methodology.

My additional training in ACT and other compassion based therapies means that I am able to choose from many different treatment options in order to create a unique treatment plan with you.

What people say:

'I am feeling quite relaxed and on top of things and hopefully this will now last...  all the exercises have been very useful, thank you.'

"Hi Kate, just to say I did it and drove to **...Thanks for all your help!"

My clients report that I give them the skills they need to move forward, and that my kind and empathetic personality relaxed them and made them feel safe and listened to.

What additional difficulties do you help with?

In addition I can help with annoying habits, and weight issues in particular respond well to solution focused Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy.

My work as a Celebrant and previous training in Education means that I can also help with grief and loss, wedding anxiety and best man speech panic!

How long does it take?

Commonly clients are feeling much better within 2-6 sessions. I am selective and work with clients I know will be able to use the strategies I teach and methods I use to overcome their difficulties. I am honest when I feel I cannot help, and will direct you to the appropriate professionals if needed.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

I work at two clinical bases in Edenbridge, both of which are wheelchair accessible. I can make house-calls for those clients unable to leave their houses, following rigid safety checks on behalf of both parties.
