About me

Hello, I'm Keeley and I'm a clinical hypnotherapist.

I can help you to take back control from the stress and anxiety that is preventing you from living a fulfilled and happy life. 

Hypnotherapy is powerful and evidence based therapy. It combines psychotherapy with relaxing hypnosis, using up to date neuroscience techniques. And the best bit? You can make long lasting effective change without the need to revisit the past or delve into the problem.

I help you to understand how your brain works, and why it gets you stuck sometimes. Maybe it's those patterns of behaviour that you just can't seem to shift, or repetitive negative thoughts. By teaching you how to get your brain working better for you,  you can achieve the outcomes you want!

I am a mum of two, and trained to be a counsellor when my children were young. I lived under the shadow of anxiety for many years; the death of my Mum when I was a child had a significant impact.  I had different therapies myself, but in spite of my training and personal therapy, I still found that I would revert back to unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving. This is where solution focused hypnotherapy stepped in!

Regardless of the issue,  my clients all have one thing in common:

  • They are motivated to get better, cope better or be better
  • They are ready to get their lives back on track

Client success stories....

There is life as you know it, then there is life after a few meetings with Keeley. On top of being overall a lovely person, Keeley gave me the tools to finally feel genuine confidence and serenity. Life still comes with its challenges, but it doesn't feel as heavy and I am now able to quickly find balance again. I initially started the therapy for a concrete issue, but ended up with benefits on all fronts of life.

I have wanted to share my experiences with Keeley Smith's hypnotherapy services for a while now and am finally glad I am able to share. My sessions with her have been truly the most amazing weekly meetings ever. The way that I view life has completely changed all thanks to Keeley. She really helped me change the way I think about my anxieties, as well as providing fun and interactive ways to learn about how the brain works, but through simplistic diagrams and teachings that anyone is able to pick up and understand. It really felts like an insight into my brain, and by including brief information about the science behind stress, anxiety and depression, Keeley really allowed me to gain an insight into what was happening inside my head and also how to begin solving the issue. I strongly urge everyone and anyone who will listen to attend hypnotherapy sessions with her, simply because of her brilliant, friendly relations with her clients, as well as her enthusiastic, bright character. Truly a wonderfully positive outcome for me, and I will take the many lessons I have learnt, all throughout my life. A brilliant lady and an even more incredible therapist. Highly, highly recommend.

Member organisations

AfSFH
Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH)

The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) was set up to provide information about a modern form of Hypnotherapy and its associated benefits to members of the public. The main aim of the AfSFH is to spread awareness of the benefits of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Its secondary aim is to support Hypnotherapists in their businesses by encouraging good practice and self-care.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

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.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

I also offer Hypnotherapy for Calm Birthing. 

Research shows there are many benefits to approaching birth with a calm mind and relaxed body. We know that fear and anxiety can significantly affect the birthing process.

When we’re feeling anxious or scared, we feel pain more acutely.

 Fear results in tension; tension results in pain; pain leads to fear of the next contraction and the cycle is repeated. This is known as the fear, tension, pain cycle.

Hypnotherapy helps you to understand how your brain works, and how we can reduce the fear and anxiety: feeling calm, confident, empowered, relaxed, and in control. We will teach you how to use self hypnosis at home and during birth. Your birth partner will also learn how they can support you. Hypnotherapy will also have benefits for your baby : when Mum is calmer, the baby will receive lower levels of stress hormones and greater levels of oxygenation; a baby born in a calmer way, is more likely to stay calm and alert following the birth.

I also work with young people and teenagers.

I have a lot of experience working with young people, as I have been counselling in a senior school for nearly five years.
