Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy


Arrive Therapy®

I'm Kathy (pronouns: she/her). I help highly sensitive people, those with anxiety and minority stress, as well as autistic and neurodivergent individuals, make positive life changes using techniques including Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy.

I am a neurodiversity-affirming therapist, and am passionate about equality, diversity and inclusion for under-represented groups. I am also a gender diversity-affirming therapist.

My field of interest is Hypno-CBT
®. If you’re looking for hypnosis for anxiety, or to find out more about hypnosis techniques, you’ve come to the right place!

(I also keep an open mind about the polyvagal theory of the autonomic nervous system. Read more on polyvagal theory HERE.)

®  and neurodivergence here.

My CBH model is especially suited to highly sensitive (HSP) and neurodivergent individuals - I have #actuallyautistic knowledge.

About our cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy service

Hypno-CBT® combines Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with hypnosis, to give you the tools to manage and overcome daily challenges, e.g. feelings of anxiety. Proprietor Kathy Carter uses cognitive behavioural principles, among others, to help individuals bring about positive change to many areas of their lives. There are lots of hypnotherapy techniques available! We offer tele-health (webcam) and face-to-face appointments.

Arrive Therapy® is open for business. Give us a call, or drop us an email to enquire. (Additionally, we offer focussed attention / meditation downloads & self-care articles to help anxiety-prone, highly sensitive and neurodivergent individuals gain understanding, and develop mindfulness and empowerment).

Kathy's special areas of interest in terms of Hypno-CBT® therapy & hypnosis techniques are debilitating anxiety, and issues affecting neurodivergent people. (Specifically, individuals that are autistic, or have ADHD.
Kathy is neurodivergent herself, and is author of the book 'Autism from A to Z').


She's also keenly interested in mindset coaching, narcissistic trauma recovery, pain, and issues affecting highly sensitive people (HSPs). Kathy is a gender diversity-affirming therapist (pronouns she/her.)

Other projects

As a polyvagal-affirming therapist, Kathy utilises knowledge of the autonomic nervous system to help clients' regulation.

(Polyvagal theory is not specifally advocated by the UK College of Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy, where Kathy trained. Her polyvagal interest is via supplemental professional training, and continued professional development.)
