Hypnotherapy is a skilled communication aimed at directing a person’s imagination in a way that

helps elicit changes in some perceptions, sensations, feelings, thoughts and behaviours.

In a typical hypnotherapy session, the hypnotherapist and client will discuss the intended alterations or therapeutic goals desired.


The hypnotherapist will ask questions about previous medical history, general health and lifestyle to decide on the best approach for the individual.


Hypnotherapy may be found to be helpful for those seeking relief from a range of problems (see below and this ARTICLE), and is used alongside a person’s own willpower and motivation, to seek a desired goal. It is always client-centred.

Cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy (or CBH) combines cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) with hypnosis, to give you the tools to manage and overcome daily stress and feelings of anxiety, as well as manage physical ailments.


CBH or Hypno-CBT® is designed to help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. The hypnosis element allows us to embed the positive changes at a deeper level.



Kathy Carter trained with the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy, a leading training provider specialising in modern, evidence-based, cognitive-behavioural theory and practice.

Kathy is registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register, the National Hypnotherapy Council and the Complimentary & Natural Healthcare Council.

what issues can hypnotherapy help with?

Hypnotherapy is commonly used for helping deal with pain, aiding sleep, and helping with psychosomatic issues, e.g. physical complaints aggravated by internal conflicts or stress, such as irritable bowel syndrome and dermatological complaints. Hypnotherapy is also commonly used to improve symptoms associated with low mood, anxiety and issues of trauma.
