Getting to know me
Kath Clegg the Hypnotherapist
Hi, I’m Kath and I’m a fully qualified and insured hypnotherapist. I am a member of the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council so you will find me on the General Hypnotherapy Register. I am bound by their code of ethics and operate a fully compliant and confidential service to all my clients.
I became a hypnotherapist to help people and to give people back full control of their lives.
In December 2016 I had a full miscarriage, we attended the 12 week scan and the baby had passed away. Life shattered and I thought I was losing everything and everyone around me.
During this time I noticed that we were left to fend for ourselves without support and nobody to help us through.
Then in 2018 I changed my job and the boss that hired me began to start bullying me 2 months into a new job, and this continued for 4 months. They were the worst 4 months of my life, and life fell apart once again.
Trying to deal with both issues, I began to suffer badly with both depression and anxiety. Life couldn’t get any worse, and I searched for help.
I had undertaken hypnotherapy in the past, but was advised that counselling was my best option and to talk it out, and this would help me deal with it. I was in counselling for weeks and returned again a few weeks later for a top up as things still hadn’t improved.
I knew Hypnotherapy would work, as I’d had hypnotherapy for confidence years before. However, I was told talk therapy would work more, so stick with that.
While at my lowest, I decided that I wanted to change my life and help people who had been through anything like I had. I decided to study hypnotherapy and become qualified.
I started the course, and a weekend in, I was ready to quit. I was still in a really bad place, and counselling just wasn’t working.
Lockdown happened and I was getting lower and the depression got so bad I didn’t even want to get out of bed anymore, so I turned to my hypnotherapy tutor and asked him for help.
I had one session of Hypnotherapy and all of a sudden life brightened up. The hypnotherapy worked. It was a huge release of everything I’d been holding in for years.
During my course I was given hypnotherapy for a long-standing phobia, my fear of birds and butterflies, and the results are amazing.
When this happened for me, I knew that I wanted to do this for other people. I’d been there and I am now wanting to do what was done for me. Changing other people’s lives, like my life was changed for the better.

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.

Information about health conditions (*)
Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.
I charge £60 per hour for hypnotherapy, but also offer package deals, so please contact me for more info.
