Katerina Kurilova MHS Accred, GHQP, MA NLP, AdvDip
A warm hello, my name is Katerina. I am a facilitator of change with an innate passion for human fulfillment (so many of us do not even know what that’s like); fascination for human abilities (do YOU know what you are capable of if equipped with the right mindset?); curiosity for individuality (human beings are all the same in essence but completely unique in existence) - EVERYONE have an inspirational story of their life to tell. What is YOUR story?... what is the story YOU DESIRE to live?
It will be my privilege to work with you. Whatever is holding you back from living your life on your terms with meaning, self-compassion and inner peace is sure worth talking about: anxiety, stress, depression, addiction, panic, phobias, chronic pain, anger, loss, separation, grief, relationships, divorce, communication, fertility, birth trauma, childhood related issues, self-esteem, self-belief, life changes and milestones, workplace and career challenges, learning to manage physical and mental well-being.
YOU are not alone! ... in a safe and impartial space - together we will find a way of working with compassion, curiosity and humour. Oh yes, we will absolutely laugh too! ;)
With over 8 years of study, research and practice with clients from diverse walks of life equipped me with vital knowledge and understanding of integrative psychotherapy that allows me to draw from a range of approaches to work creatively with you and act as a catalyst for new perceptions and attitudes to emerge.
Despite the accumulated knowledge of evidence-based approaches, YOU are an expert on being you and I will only be there to guide you to tap into your internal resources to stop living a life by default and start living it by a design of your own. As a dynamic, creative and resourceful integrative therapist, I do not believe in 'one size fits all'. Our collaborative working alliance of my innate capacity to respond respectfully and authentically coupled with your courage to actively participate in the therapeutic process, is at the heart of the transformation and success you can experience in working with me.

Training, qualifications & experience
I am highly invested in continuing professional development.
I work to a strict code of Ethics and Best Practice set by my governing bodies
I have full professional indemnity and public liability insurance.
I am on an Accredited Register that has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. The Accredited Register programme was set up by the Government to improve standards and safety for the benefit of the public. My accreditation demonstrates the commitment to high professional standards, to enhance safety and deliver a better service.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
National Hypnotherapy Society
The National Hypnotherapy Society is a Learned Society whose primary purpose is the advancement of the knowledge of hypnotherapy and the fostering of professional hypnotherapy expertise through training, accreditation and continued professional development of their members. The Society seeks to contribute to public wellbeing both through the use of hypnotherapy and by ensuring that hypnotherapists are safe, competent and ethical in practice.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
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
There are numerous more ways of addressing psychological challenges of human life than the average person is aware of. I am committed to promote psychological well-being and demystify Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy and Counselling through shared knowledge, therapeutic connection and my “Resources” page. https://www.healthinthoughttherapies.co.uk/resources

It is my privilege to both facilitate and bear witness to this process!
"The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is crucial that you find the right counsellor / psychotherapist for you. All of the aforementioned is a compilation of meaningless words and a waste of your precious time without the rapport.
To help you make this important decision, I offer 30 mins FREE consultation call, which comes at no charge, is an opportunity for you to share your difficulties, desired goals and inquire about therapeutic process and how it can help you begin living the life on your terms with meaning, self-compassion and inner peace.
Following the initial assessment, you will be offered insights, suggestions and options on ways of working to suit your needs. There is no obligation to continue after the initial consultation. If you do decide to work with me, sessions are usually on a weekly basis and last 50 minutes (longer sessions can be arranged in advance should we face a more complicated concern). For any issues that occurred early in life, such as borderline traits, thorough treatment plan (sessions of minimum of 1 year) will be recommended.
