About me

I'm a certified and experienced hypnotherapist, Solution Focused Therapist and Life Coach, specialising in anxiety and stress related problems. From general anxiety to full blown panic attacks, overwhelming stress and insomnia as well as anxiety around sport performance, exams, driving and flying phobia's, public speaking and social phobia. I offer a personalised plan, combining a number of techniques such as hypnosis, solution focused brief therapy, NLP and mindfulness.

Hypnotherapy For Anxiety and Stress Related Conditions:

We all feel anxious, some of the time, it’s only human. But when we produce too much anxiety it can spiral out of control and it can be problematic. Anxiety can come in many guises. You may find that suddenly, for no reason, your heart starts pounding, you’re struggling to breathe, you break out in a sweat or you’re shaking. You feel like you’re going to die. Perhaps you know why it happened the first time. Or perhaps your anxiety is less obvious, you’re going about your life in a normal way, but a lot of the time you find yourself worrying, or feeling panicky or nervous.

At night it stops you from getting to sleep and maybe it wakes you up in the middle of the night. And then prevents you from going back to sleep. You may well have forgotten what it’s like to feel normal.

Anxiety is created from the following elements; the physical sensations you experience, the emotions you have whilst experiencing them, and the thoughts that go through your mind at the time.

You will be pleased to know that hypnotherapy is extremely effective for anxiety and I can show you how to regain control. It’s important that you understand how anxiety is created, because it helps diminish the fear. I will explain exactly what happens when anxiety takes over and then show you how to manage it.

I also work for a college and university supporting students and staff for stress and anxiety issues and host well-being sessions.

I enjoy seeing the positive change in my clients, making incremental changes towards their goals. 

Hypnotherapy is a naturally occurring 'trance' that you already enter many times a day! You remain awake and in control. It's a very relaxing and enjoyable experience that engages the subconscious mind, enabling you to make changes that you have been unable to do with your conscious mind.

I work with clients in their comfort of their own home via online Zoom sessions or I work with clients personally at my office in central Wells.

For more information on this please email me or call me, I offer a free 20 minute phone conversation for you to ask any questions.

What my clients are saying:

"I honestly can't quite believe the positive changes I experienced after just one session with Kirstie, and the massive progress I have made over a couple of months with just a handful of sessions. On my first visit I sat there a broken sobbing wreck, feeling lost and unfixable after a number of years filled with sadness, worry, pain and often despair. I had undergone talking style therapies a number of times but found it so difficult to let go of the trauma and move on with my life. Kirstie asked me what I wanted from the sessions and what would look different in my life if they were successful. I was stunned, I didn't know. I felt so lost that all I knew was what I didn't want to be like or feel like. At this point Kirstie gave a fantastic analogy that unlocked something in my brain and this was the start of what is genuinely turning out to be the biggest transformative stage of my life! Kirstie found a way to wake me up and make me realise that I can make the changes I want to. I felt completely safe and listened to. Kirstie was completely understanding of the life situations that had led to me being where I was. She explained in detail exactly what was happening in my brain during and after the trauma experiences, and also how to reprogram the brain into better patterns. I really appreciated the level of information she gave and that she so naturally found ways of explaining it in ways that completely resonated with me. I've had 4 sessions now and am blown away with how much I've progressed. My confidence has increased ten fold and I am looking at the world in a very different way. I feel so different its quite strange, but definitely positive. My stress response is dramatically tamed. I am calmer, more efficient at work and overthinking so much less. I genuinely can't thank Kirstie enough for helping me get out of the headspace I was in". BL

"I saw Kirstie over the summer 2022, when I was having a particularly tough spell with burnout and anxiety. Kirstie was brilliant - she listened, asked a few questions and explained how the brain works and why I was feeling like I did. She gave me a few tools to reset the mind, which really helped me turn a corner. I left the first appointment feeling hopeful and have kept the positive mindset going ever since. I’m so grateful to Kirstie for her help during what was a bewildering time. She was so warm, calm, kind, understanding and reassuring”. SA

Feeling overwhelmed, stressed and unable to fully function, I decided to get help from Kirstie. Not only did she listen to my concerns, she offered instant reassurance, support and empathy. Even after the first session, I felt lighter and in control again. It gave me clarity and positivity. I highly recommend working with Kirstie, it’s made such a difference to my life!” LM

"I’ve had sessions with Kirstie, over the phone and in person and every time her professional and friendly approach and the style of therapy she practices has really helped me reset my mind by reframe past experiences and freeing me from learned thought patterns, helping me achieve things that before would have been challenging, thank you so much Kirstie for all your help.”JF

"Kirstie is an amazing. She helped me so much with the problems I was having. I felt so relaxed and would leave feeling more positive and rejuvenated. Kirstie is a great listener and you really feel validated with what you’re going through.
She’s also so kind and empathetic, you really feel cared for.” JD
