About me

Dr Kerry West, MBBS, MRCGP, PGCert.(ClinHyp), GQHP
As a fully qualified doctor, with twenty years' experience in the NHS, Kerry has a deep understanding of medical and psychological issues. Fully qualified in Clinical Hypnotherapy to post-graduate level, she now combines the two skill sets to create a truly complementary therapy, benefiting enormously from the in-depth knowledge gained throughout her career as a hospital doctor, Paediatrician and General Practitioner.
Practicing from a quiet and discreet part of Stratford upon Avon, with easy parking and full accessibility, Kerry will make you feel at ease within moments of meeting. Kerry holds a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and has further developed her skill set to include Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR), Coaching, Counselling, Mindfulness, Brief Solution-focused Therapy (BSFT), Positive Psychotherapy and also EFT, and NLP (master practitioner). She is registered with the General Medical Council (GMC), a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners (MRCGP) and registered with the General Hypnotherapy Council (GHR) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

Kerry is happy and able to help with many physical issues (for example: pain management, irritable bowel syndrome -IBS, tics, tinnitus, skin problems....) psychological issues, (for example: anxiety, phobias, stress, depression, eating disorders, insomnia, low self-confidence, anger, fear of flying...) and behavioural issues ( smoking, food- or diet- related, addictions, compulsions, habits, alcohol consumption...).

In addition to treating adults, Kerry is also very happy to see teenagers and children                                                                                                                      (from age 5/6 years)

Several Private Health Insurance companies will now fund therapy from Dr West...                                                                                                                     ....please ask

Note: Dr West's current practice is in Complementary Medicine having taken the decision to no longer practice as a medical doctor. She should not to be seen as replacing any existing medical provider, and will not write prescriptions. She is, however, happy to take referrals from, or to liaise with, GPs and consultants when appropriate.

Why not contact Kerry for an initial chat about how you or your child could benefit from her treatment?

* 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.

Dr West is very happy to treat children. Some of the things which can be helped by hypnotherapy include:

Sleep problems
Night Terrors/ Nightmares
School and other phobias
Tics and Tourette's
