Hi I’m Kesia, I’m a behavioural change and emotional well-being specialist with over 20 years’ experience in change work.
An Integrative, clinical Hypnotherapist and Counsellor supporting my clients by offering a 2 in 1 approach to change. Using a mixture of hypnotherapy and counselling techniques, I create a unique solution-focused behavioural change-treatment plan based on your individual needs to get to the root of the issues, that get you the results you want and need. I am committed to assisting you achieve those positive outcomes and enable you to achieve life-changing behaviours.
I created Insight Hypnotherapy-Counselling practice to help people like yourself find peace, fulfilment and happiness in their lives by resolving issues that are troubling. With a friendly and relaxed practice both face to face and remotely where you will be assured of a warm, welcoming and professional service in line with high standards and Code of Ethics.
My journey over the years has seen me work with many clients who have made great successful life changes in many differing areas. I feel that everyone that comes to me has the abilities they need in order to learn the skills and techniques to achieve the kind of life they want and I can assist them in realising/accessing this for themselves.
"Life is what you make it, so why not make it better?" Hypnotherapy-counselling can improve your life for the better on a daily basis including the way you feel about both yourself and the world around you. You have nothing to loose and everything to gain........

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.
