Kim Faulkner Dip.Hyp, GHR
Hello my name is Kim and welcome to my profile.
I trained as a nurse when I left school, and have since qualified as a Hypnotherapist and Counsellor. I am committed to supporting and empowering clients on their journey through life helping them to be the best version of themselves. I work from a principle and belief that everyone has the inner resources they need, or they can create them, given the right conditions for change.
My passion is to help you with whatever issues you have and help you in being the best version of you. I can help you to make positive changes in your life and help you overcome a variety of issues that may be distressing you in your life. I offer a professional and confidential approach and a therapy that is tailored to your individual requirements.
I offer a welcoming environment that is confidential and I follow a code of ethics to ensure my practice is ethical and safe. I am committed to continuing professional development and continually update my knowledge and skills to provide my clients with the service they deserve.
On your journey, I will be with you every step of the way, so that each day forward you will feel safe, calm and peaceful along with feeling empowered. I originally trained as a nurse when I left school, I really wanted to make a difference and I feel even stronger about making a difference now, simply because we live in a very anxious world.
Hypnotherapy really is a life-changing experience, change your mind, change your life.

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.
The initial FREE consultation is for 30 minutes to discuss your individual needs and requirements.
My fees depend on the therapy you choose or the combination of therapies you have. Please visit my website for prices.
The wonderful thing about Hypnotherapy is, it works by reprogramming the subconscious mind and its negative patterns of behaviour, within the mind so it fears, phobias and unwanted behaviours can be overcome. During hypnosis you enter a trance state where you are still fully aware of your surroundings and in control of the situation. Your motivation to want to change the behaviour is key to the success of hypnosis.
Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis is not a state of deep sleep. It involves the client relaxing into an enhanced state of awareness, as the client hears my voice. In this state the conscious mind is suppressed, and the subconscious mind is revealed, In the hypnotic state I make the positive suggestions, which are the seeds that become firmly implanted in the client’s mind, thereby bringing about positive change.
As the client relaxes the conscious control is relaxed, breathing becomes slower and deeper, the pulse rate falls. The conscious control of the mind is inhibited, and the subconscious mind awoken. Since the subconscious mind is a deeper-seated, more instinctive force than the conscious mind, this the part which has to change for the clients behaviour and physical state to alter.
