I was hypnotised by Kate a few years ago when I was going through a stressful time in my life when I was feeling very down.The session was amazing, Kate puts you at ease straight away and I felt so relaxed and still in control throughout.Following the session I immediately felt more relaxed and generally happier and more positive.The whole experience was extremely relaxing and enjoyable and I would recommend hypnotherapy with Kate to everyone ๐Ÿ™‚


After smoking for years and with a 20 a day habit I had tried numerous methods to try and quit smoking including champix, various nicotine replacements etc.I decided to try a hypnotherapy session as the other methods weren’t working. Kate is very welcoming and put me at ease straight away. The hypnotherapy session was very relaxing (I even fell asleep)!!!I found that straight after the session my cravings had gone and I didn’t want a cigarette at all.I would recommend anyone to try it ๐Ÿ™‚

I had a hypno birthing session with Kate before I had my second son. It helped me to focus and stay so calm and in control. Kate has a beautiful and soothing voice and you feel relaxed with her immediately. My labour was quite quick, my son was facing the wrong way but at the last minute he turned. I had a 10lb baby with just gas and air. I have been able to use the visualisation techniques in other areas of my life.
