I consider myself lucky to work with the wonderful clients I have. Here is what some of them say about working with me:
Kate provided a safe and comfortable space for me to explore some painful issues. I found her to have the right balance of professionalism and warmth, she often used her intuition which was always right and I found her hypnosis highly effective when combined with psychotherapy. I would highly recommend her!
My sessions with Kate helped me work through a difficult and stressful time in my life. Her flexible approach enabled me to drive the focus of each session, choosing what I wanted to work on each week. The insights and self awareness I developed with Kate's support have helped me move into 2018 with a positive outlook, more mindful and nurturing of my own wellbeing. I'll definitely be seeing Kate again when I'm ready to tackle my next big life challenge!
I went to see Kate because I finally made myself seek support over my anxiety issues. I have experienced anxiety at work meetings and presentations for years. This is something I've tried to work on myself and it did get a bit better but I needed someone to work through it with me. I have had hypnotherapy and NLP with Kate and it has made a huge difference. Kate listened to the issue, it's triggers and how it affects me and then we pinpointed two ways in which the anxiety takes over and worked towards managing them better. I feel it has worked as I now have fewer if no anxious thought cycles and feel I can manage my anxieties and not let them overtake me when dealing with the situations I find difficult. Kate is great, she understood what I felt and needed and worked with me to overcome and manage my anxiety problem. She is doing this because it is a genuine passion of hers and I feel this makes it work. She has guided me through a couple of sessions with top ups available which is a fantastic way to be supported as I manage my anxiety issue and stop it from affecting me.
My life has seemed quite together over a number of years and I have been able to have fulfilling work, bring up my family of 3 chilren, and have an interesting social life. I went through many very difficult bereavements and divorce in my 30's but maintained a relationship with my ex partner so that the children would hopefully not be too damaged by the experience. However, I am now in my 60's and there was still something niggling at me that didn't seem quite right, but I couldn't determine what this was or what to do about it. I decided to see Kate about this problem, which I thought must be related to my childhood experiences and I have found her quiet, unassuming questioning and kindness has opened me up to find the root cause of my problems. Its amazing really, that I find myself in a very different place after only a few sessions and I am looking forward and excited about the rest of my journey with Kate.
My Christmases and new year celebrations for as long as I can remember (I'm now 45) have been full of despair and emptiness and spent holding onto other people's guilt.
After several sessions of counselling from you, I finally saw what mattered and what didn't, what I could change and what I couldn't. There was some deep digging at times, and lots of sobbing and snot along the way (your words "this is the worst it will get, it will now get better" stuck with me) and I know I have come out the other side.
Three months ago I gave up my day job and took the plunge and did something for me! I now have my own doggy care business and everyone has commented how much happier I appear. If someone had told me 12 months ago what I would be doing now I would have laughed in their face .
Thank you so much Kate for all you have helped me to achieve in 2017.
Kate - I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the amazing hypnotherapy sessions I have had with you. I walked in on the first one like a coiled spring. So anxious about everything, stressed, and foggy minded. You have helped me so much - I feel calmer, less anxious, less stressed, and clearer about how to deal with situations as they arise. I have recommended you to many of my friends. Thank you again Kate. You are amazing!!!
After yo-yo dieting for 20 years and trying every fad diet going I thought I'd give hypnotherapy a try. Working with Kate was a brilliant experience and it's changed my relationship with food forever! Kate is warm and encouraging and has a lovely energy. I had some real breakthroughs and could finally make sense of what I'd been struggling with for many years. I can't recommend her enough. It really has changed my life.
I was very sceptical about hypnosis and, if I'm honest, I didn't really believe it would work - but I thought there was no harm in trying. I've always struggled with binge eating and have never been able to leave food on my plate so - those were the first things I asked to tackle. After just one session, I noticed a massive difference. I didn't feel obliged to finish what was on my plate and I found myself not binging at all. It was incredible! Before, I always had this horrible internal struggle where I would be fighting against my willpower and I would always cave in - but Kate gave me that boost I needed to find my willpower and take the constant inner battle away! Since then we have worked on confidence and portion control and it is amazing what a difference it makes. I thoroughly recommend it to everyone – no matter what your problems and no matter how sceptical you are – you will definitely notice a change!
I was recommended to see Kate through a friend, as I was having a traumatic time in my life moving on from a past relationship. I was finding it difficult to feel good about myself and to build new confidence to get back to my old happy go lucky self, I can't speak highly enough of the professional and worth while efforts Kate gave to me.. Building me back to my old self, so much so that at the end of our session I met my now girlfriend, I am so happy with life now and can't thank Kate enough for her help, highly recommended!
