Katie Elizabeth Joan Guthrie
TESTIMONIAL - 10 year old boy
My ten year old son suffered from extreme anxiety, to the point where he was too afraid to go to school on most days. Traditional therapies such as counselling and psychotherapy had failed to help. Since undergoing therapy with Katie we have seen a complete turn around in his behaviour. He now goes to school every morning without experiencing any anxiety at all. He is now equipped to deal with any anxieties that arise on his own. He is a much happier child than he has ever been. We are delighted with his progress and wish that we had found Katie years ago. We now no longer worry that he won’t be able to cope with the stresses of life as he progresses into adulthood.’
I am a fully qualified Clinical Solution Focused Hypnotherapist running practices in Corsham and Bath.
Solution Focussed Therapy is both highly effective and quick in its results. It is about goal setting, changing habits and looking forward into the future.
Having worked as a legal recruiter for over 15 years before becoming a hypnotherapist, I naturally enjoy communicating with people and have a sense of wanting to help. I consider my approach to be straightforward and practical as well as friendly, positive and fun.
I specialise in the following areas:
Anxiety & stress
Fear and phobias
Self confidence and low self esteem
Pregnancy & childbirth
“I went to Katie because I am set to give a best man speech and was petrified at the thought! I had suffered from social anxiety most of my adult life and just didn’t think I could go through with it, without help.
I had tried hypnotherapy several years ago for social anxiety but without success. What sets Katie aside from other hypnotherapists is that she firstly listens to what it is you want to achieve and then begins to help you get there, rather than automatically retracing and blaming childhood experiences.
After my sessions with Katie I came out feeling so positive. I felt and acted like I was so much more in control. I am now feeling more relaxed when I’m with people, so am able to think with more clarity and conversations in general seem to come more naturally. I certainly feel the up and coming best man speech isn’t the insurmountable task I once thought it to be!” Steve

I also practice in Solution Focussed Therapy which is exactly what the name suggests. It is one of the most up to date therapies and is all about goal setting and looking forward into the future.
