About me

Hi! I am Michaela (you can call me Ki) and I am a qualified and experienced hypnotherapist and secondary school teacher based in the West Bridgford area, and I’m here to support you in removing your inner barriers and awakening your potential. 

Choosing a hypnotherapist    
There are often many hypnotherapists to choose from in a particular area and with the increased use of online sessions, location is no longer a factor. This can make the choice a daunting one. As long as an individual is suitably qualified, insured, registered with a recognised professional body and holds enhanced DBS (if working with children and vulnerable adults) then it all comes down to who you feel comfortable with. If you have a good rapport and feel at ease then you will be better able to open up about your concerns, which will help your hypnotherapist tailor their approach to your individual needs. It will also allow you to more easily achieve the deep relaxation required for effective changes to be made. 

How I can help    
Specialising in confidence, stress and anxiety, particularly around exams and performance, I can help clients feel calm, self assured and in control. My psychology and education background have equipped me with the knowledge and experience to be able to assist in treating many different issues, particularly for young people. I hope you will see that I am kind, genuine and able to put you at ease as you make the important step in seeking help with life’s challenges.

What continues to amaze me about hypnotherapy is the wide range of issues that can be addressed in a relatively short space of time, not to mention the pleasant and relaxing experience for clients during the process itself. Who couldn't do with more relaxation in their life? 

What next?
Please take the time to look at the rest of my profile, visit the website and I can also be found on Instagram and Facebook. I would be happy to answer any of your questions so feel free to get in contact by phone or email. I would also encourage you to take advantage of my free one hour initial consultation to see if I am the best fit for you. I look forward to hearing from you.
