Hypnotherapy, solution focused hypnotherapy

About Me

Hello, my name is Kim and I am a fully qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapist.

I have worked in the NHS in the UK for 25+ years, in one form or another. Whilst working within the NHS, I have seen first hand the problems that can arise physically when the mind and body are not in sync with one another. This has led me on the path to hypnotherapy. 

I myself successfully used hypnosis to stop smoking and to deal with a fear of heights. I know from first hand experience how effective Solution Focused hypnotherapy can be and how it can help facilitate change.

Drawing upon modern and effective approaches that combine a range of talk therapies with hypnotherapy I am able to help you to reach your true potential or change a behavioral pattern or habit. 

I completed my training with Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT) Guildford, a recognised Centre of Excellence for Hypnotherapy in the UK,  where I have obtained a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH) and the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD). The HPD is widely regarded as the Gold Standard in Hypnotherapy.

I am a full member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (nch) and the Association of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH).

The list of conditions that I help with is not exhaustive; if you have a problem that it is stopping you from living the life that you would like then please do get in touch for an initial chat to see how I may be able to help you. 

A problem is only a problem, if it’s a problem“: 

Issues covered include: poor sleep, anxiety, depression, OCD, fears, phobias, addiction, sports performance and more. Together we work towards your preferred future.

Whatever your reason for choosing to work with me you will find that my approach is personalised and relevant to you.

 I make no assumptions and remain curious at all times. I believe that you are the best expert of you; you know more about your problem than anyone else, and you will also know the best way to solve it. 

Working together I will explain how I can support you in making the changes that you need to make.

If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to get in touch or to book an initial consultation which the best way for you to find out if I can help you with no obligation to continue.

Whatever your current challenge, and whatever has happened to you in the past, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help, if you would like it to.  

I use various video conferencing tools including Zoom, MST and Google Meets.

This enables me to be able to work with anyone, anywhere, at anytime as long as you have access to a tablet, mobile phone, laptop or PC and a reliable internet connection.

During the sessions, I need to be able to see you to check that you are safe, which will be discussed in more detail at the initial consultation.

 I will be adding face to face appointments in the near future.

If you would like to know more, contact me for more information, an informal 10 minute chat or to book an appointment.. 

Wishing you all the best,
