I'm Kathy (pronouns: she/her). I help people of all genders make improvements surrounding emotional and self-regulation needs and mental wellness, using talking therapy that's solution focussed.
Within my hypnotherapy practice I notably work with individuals that identify as being highly sensitive (HSP), those with anxiety and minority stress, as well as autistic and neurodivergent individuals, make positive life changes using techniques including Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy and self-regulation.
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 includes 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.)

What clients say...
"Our instant rapport helped with my success on being far less anxious of motorway driving; it also opened up the depth of my issues, e.g. a better understanding of where my phobias / anxieties may have started".
"Working with Kathy on post autism diagnosis issues, it has been invaluable to have an ND therapist. The hypnosis element complements the CBT well. Positive, affirming, supportive - highly recommend."
"I have found Kathy to be very caring, helpful, supportive and non-judgemental. I have found the tapes she forwarded to be very relaxing, and this has helped me control my breathing and alleviate some anxiety."
