Many issues can be helped by Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy, including; stress, anxiety, low self confidence, habit breaking, depression, insomnia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), phobias, unhelpful habits (nail biting / smoking etc), gambling, sexual issues, exam nerves, birthing concerns, fear of change, sports performance, hair pulling (Trichotillomania), skin picking (Dermatillomania), IBS, loss and bereavement, confusion, weight loss / changing relationships with food, deep relaxation, and so much more.  I specialise in working with people who are suffering with anxiety, this can often be a big part of many of these issues I  have listed above.

Hypnotherapy is recognised by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) as an effective short term treatment for many different issues, however, it is often misunderstood and seen and some kind of mystical and magical process. I can assure you that this certainly isn't the case! 

Hypnotherapy works by relaxing the conscious part of our brains allowing access to the subconscious, the part of the brain that forms our beliefs, habits and automatic behaviour.   Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy focuses of how we think and feel, and how that impacts on our behaviour. It is a modern, scientific and evidence based approach.  I work in a friendly, patient and relaxed manner, and the focus of each session is working towards achieving each client's own goals, and for them to develop a greater sense of awareness through the power of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy,  Hypnotherapy and Mindfulness. I believe it is essential to treat everyone as an individual as different things work for different people. 

In the first session we complete a health questionaire, and therapy contract, and of course you will have plenty of time to speak about your issue/s, and what you would like to achieve through Hypnotherapy.  I spent time explaining how I work, and what you can expect from your sessions, and will answer any questions you may have. I will teach you a technique that you can start to use straight away.  Once we have done all of this you will be able to sample hypnosis. I teach people to become more aware of how they  think, how this affects their feelings, and consequently how this determins how we behave. 

Sessions will include mindfulness, cognitive behavioural therapy, a wide variety of practical coping techniques, self hypnosis, and of course, hypnosis. Where appropriate you will also receive recordings to listen to between sessions, and the techniques that you learn can also be used between sessions, and, if needed once treatment has finished. You will also recieve a detailed follow up e-mail after each session with a recap of what we covered, and support between sessions, including a recording of hypnosis.  

I have a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy awarded by the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy. I am an accredited member of the following organisations; the National Council of Hypnotherapy (NCH), The Hypnotherapy Directory, and The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).  I have an enhanced DBS certificate. I also have Counselling and Psychology qualifications, and an extensive background (over 20 years) in adult social care (mental health, learning disabilities, and advocacy).  

If you would like to talk to me to see if Hypnotherapy could help you, please feel free to contact me. I will be happy to contact you for a free, no obligation chat to discuss your issues in more detail, and to explain a little more about how I work, and what you can expect from a session.  If you would prefer not to speak on the phone, please contact me via text, or e-mail with any questions you may have, or to book a session. E-mail: info@kmhypnotherapy.co.uk / 07970 553752.

"Anxiety had crippled my life for as long as I can remember. Fear of a wide variety of everyday supposedly 'enjoyable' situations ranging from parties, to taking the kids swimming would send me into a spiral of anxiety and depression, sometimes coming close to making me physically sick from the stress.  I had always tried to hide the fear, acting as confident as possible, and avoiding the situations I dreaded. I was basically papering over the cracks in my life.   Once the kids were of a certain age it became impossible to avoid all the situations I feared.  Hypnotherapy had been recommended to me in the past, but I have always been the biggest sceptic going, and had always dismissed the idea, then I met Kate.  I booked an appointment and the usual anxiety kicked in the week before our meeting.  Not only did I leave my first session realising my anxiety was unfounded, I left my first session feeling genuinely elated, refreshed, and confident. I cannot stress how great the difference was after just one session.  After three sessions I had to go to a party, the kind of party that would normally send me stressing out, but this time it was different.  I not only got through the party, I actually enjoyed it!  I started conversations with people,( something I would never normally do).  I also had a smile on my face, instead of the usual uncomfortable frown.  Kate is a very likeable person and incredibly easy to talk to, she is very understanding, and I would recommend her to anyone.  In a nutshell, hypnotherapy worked for me". (3 sessions) 

"The positive changes were so deeply embedded they have affected areas of my life that I hadn't recognised were being impacted by my negative issues. I've been delighted by all the changes which are still evolving.  Many, many  thanks".  (3 sessions)

" I had never experienced Hypnotherapy before attending sessions with Kate.  I found her very easy to talk to and she explained each part of the treatment clearly, continuing to put me at my ease as the appointments progressed.  I found the whole experience very relaxing and it has helped me to come to terms with my particular issues and has given me the confidence to continue working on my own to overcome them fully." .(3 sessions)

" I have suffered for many years on and off with anxiety.  In the past I have taken antidepressants, which have worked for me, but this time it was different.  I woke one morning in the early hours and my heart was fluttering uncontrollably, and I panicked! I saw my Doctor, and was told nothing was wrong, but it left me with no confidence, and I was afraid to do anything, even everyday chores, and  I couldn't go anywhere without panicking. I was also unable to have a good nights sleep!  I was given sleeping pills, and antidepressants again, but needed something else.  Kate was recommended to me by someone I know. I was at first unsure if Hypnotherapy would work for me, but I gave it a go.  After seeing her for the first time, I found her very easy to talk to - and about anything, and she has a very calming voice!  I had 7 sessions with Kate, and she has made me feel important again, and I have more confidence.  I now keep myself busy.  I would definitely recommend Kate.  Thank you Kate".  (Female, 7 sessions)

""Hypnotherapy has definitely, without doubt helped me with my issues.  Hypnotherapy is incredible with the right therapist. When with Kate Middleton, I liked everything about her.  Firstly I have to say I saw two other Therapists before Kate, just to get  a feel for it.  I will say they were good and understanding, but Kate is brilliant, in her company you feel at ease straight away.  Kate's voice is soothing but her best quality is that she probably doesn't realise how special she is.  Kate can adapt to any situation with a solution to a particular point in the sessions.  Kate's knowledge is so in depth and that rubs off on you because of her enthusiasm.  Kate loves her job, and that makes you want to go back.  I found the Mindfulness really helps you feel under a spell in a nice relaxed way.  I would recommend Kate to anyone even with the tiniest of issues.  You will be so glad to meet her.  Kate is a warm and caring person with only her patients needs at heart.  Give her a call, its the best advice I can give." (Male, anxiety, confusion - 6 sessions)

" I found Kate at the right time! Nothing was working anymore and I couldn't find a way of helping myself.  Kate offered me her time, her advice, and the most useful thing that stuck in my mind was "you can do it!"  I've changed some of my habits but mostly I have started thinking about myself and I am listening to my body more! Actually very often if not all the time!  Every week I loose weight and I'm pretty sure it will keep dropping.  I am very grateful to Kate for her time and her help,  seeing Kate was the best and valuble "me time" I decided to offer myself! (Female, weight loss, changing relationship with food - 2 sessions)

"I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) in January 2016 and have suffered with depression and anxiety as a result of feeling so unwell.  I came across Kate's Hypnotherapy services, and I am so glad and grateful that I did.  Before meeting Kate I was running on empty and lost myself trying to please others whilst feeling so poorly.  I was anxious about how being unwell was affecting others around me,and would let others drain all my energy.  Kate taught me the importance of self care,and really worked on my assertiveness and confidence through hypnosis.  I eventually felt able to say no to certain people and situations without feeling guilty.  Guilt was a big part of my life as I almost felt guilty for having CF, or for letting people down. Now I have learnt to put myself and my health first.  I allow myself to rest when I need it and generally listen to my body more.  I even realised that I needed to get out of a job that was not serving me.  Before Hypnotherapy sessions I had little enjoyment, energy or positivity in my life and now I am able to enjoy life without nasty emotional burdens.  I used to get quite bad anxiety about socialising or events as I felt this was soaking up my resting time.  However, now I am able to enjoy things a lot more, I am able to socialise without worrying so much in advance.  I have also learnt about relaxation and mindfulness techniques to afterwards to re-group and rest after an event.  Although, of course I am not "cured" of CFS I feel so much stronger and more confident to manage the condition and adapt my life to suit me.  I feel in a much better place to cope with being unwell.  Kate is a great listener and offers a friendly, non judgemental approach, and really useful kind advice.  Before going into hypnosis we would have a catch up about the past week, and how I was feeling and anything I wanted to work on. However, Kate was amazing at knowing the path we needed to take for me to feel the benefits. Some of the hypnosis was catered especially to me (*all hypnosis is especially tailored to each individual) which made the experience really personal.  I also learned mindfulness techniques and how to apply these to my daily life.  I have learnt to live in the moment which is very important with CFS and anxiety.  This is experience was also helped by Kate being such a lovely, warm, and kind person and I cannot thank her enough for her help" . Female CFS / anxiety / low mood.

" I decided to have Hypnotherapy to help me to prepare for the birth of my first child.  Kate listened to my concerns and tailored sessions to address these.  Through both discussion and focused Hypnotherapy sessions I've felt myself grow in confidence and calmness, as well as learning really practical management techniques for when I'm in labour.  I've found the sessions to be highly effective and would definitely recommend Kate, and Hypnotherapy".  Female, labour / birth anxiety. (3 sessions).

"I have found it very rewarding to work with Kate Middleton.  She is not just kind and empathic, but also very conscientious and professional in her approach; it's evident how deeply she cares for her profession and her clients.  Her breadth of knowledge is impressive, and she draws on a wide range of techniques and treatments designed to meet the needs of each individual needs of each patient.  I would warmly recommend Kate to anyone who feels hypnotherapy could benefit their lives."  Male, sleep issues and anxiety.

" When I first went to Kate I was a different version of myself, suffering with compulsive skin picking, and overwhelmed by emotions and negative thoughts.  I have seen 2 other therapists however this was the only type of therapy that has benefited me massively.  Throughout my time with Kate I have changed so much I am unrecognisable to the person I was back in November 2017.  Kate's method of CBT and Hypnotherapy has helped change the way my brain works, something I thought before was simply impossible, and something I would have to deal with for the rest of my life.  Although I am still with Kate, I see her less often, and I have improved so much that I cannot thank / recommend her enough".  Female, compulsive skin picking, low mood, OCD, anxiety.

"I felt Kate's questioning style was relaxed, and non judgemental, which was important when I was feeling under pressure. The exercises and recordings have helped keep momentum after my 3 sessions. I would recommend anyone to try this form of therapy  when they feel they have personal issues they feel they need help with.  I am aware that the style can vary with different practitioners and I found Kate's style suited me.  It was Kate's quiet approach during an informal chat that first appealed to me and led me to approach her for a session when I was feeling rather low.  I have benefited from the sessions and would recommend anyone to contact Kate for an initial discussion about thier own situation." Male, low mood, relationship issues.

" I always feel very relaxed after being in hypnosis, and find the techniques useful when I am feeling anxious. I would recommend Kate to others, it has helped me learn way of controlling my anxiety."
Female, anxiety, exam nerves, low confidence.

"My sessions with Kate helped me address the very long standing insomnia which has been a feature of my life.  Experiencing deep relaxation during hypnotherapy motivated me to implement the strategies Kate suggested, and I now no longer dread going to bed.  I enjoyed my sessions very much, Kate is professional, emphatic, and most importantly really listens.   She picked up on underlying anxiety, and through supportive discussion helped me to address the problem.  I would unhesitatingly recommend Kate to anyone who is considering Hypnotherapy".  Female, Insomnia, anxiety.

"Years of gradually gaining weight, trying many different diets, using food for comfort and eating too much of the wrong food had led to an overweight fairly miserable me who felt totally out of control of my own body.  I was sceptical about hypnotherapy but willing to really give it a try.  After my sessions with Kate I have many strategies and techniques to use but it is more than that,  I feel in control.  I feel in control of my consumption of food, but I also feel a calmer person generally and have an improved positive outlook.  Each session was a great building block on the previous one and on reflection very cleverly planned and executed by Kate.  I was very nervous before each session, particularly the first one, but was put at ease with humour, empathy and understanding.  I loved that we laughed alot every session.  An added bonus was how relaxed I felt after each session."  Female, weight loss / changing relationship with food.

"Over the course of 8 sessions I have developed a much better appreciation and acceptance of my anxiety.  Kate's understanding of the science and theory behind hypnotherapy helped address my initial scepticism, and the techniques that I have learnt have enabled me to much better manage stress and anxiety on an almost daily basis.  I am stronger, healthier and happier as a result of seeing her".  Male, anxiety and stress.

"Having suffered with anxiety and panic attacks for a while, I was very aware of the signs and symptoms, and when this was spiralling. What I couldn't do was manage it, and find a positive way forward.  I decided to seek help through Kate, and have been so thankful for the support, maintenance tips, and guidance she has given me.  She is very good at listening, offering advice, and helping see it through whilst being very professional and understanding without any judgement.  I am so grateful to Kate and would highly recommend her to anyone.  Thank you Kate, it has really had a positive impact on my life." Female, panic attacks and anxiety. 1 session.  *Online session.

"I was feeling very anxious at the time I contacted Kate, and I was slightly wary of speaking on Zoom instead of face to face.  However, Kate straight away made me feel at ease, and I warmed to her as soon as I started speaking to her.  Although I hadn't ever used hypnotherapy before, Kate's voice was very calming, and I found I could relax, and after having each session my anxiety was more under control, and I started to feel much better.  Thank you Kate for helping me at this difficult time I found myself in.  You are a very kind and caring person, I would definitely recommend to anyone who needed help and advice." Female, anxiety, low self confidence. *Online sessions.

"I would absolutley 100% recommend KM Hypnotherapy! Kate has managed in just 3 sessions to untangle and tame what I have struggled to deal with for years. I feel more in control of myself and everything around me, I am becoming more positive, free and energised.  I am happier than I have been in years, and this is all because of the brilliant Kate Middleton.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you so so much.  I finally feel like I can have a life back.  Male, *Online sessions.

"I have found these hypnotherapy sessions really helpful, and I would easily recommend them.  Furthermore, I wouldn't hesitate to use it again.  The recap e-mails, and hypnotic recordings are invaluable.  I had previously tried NHS counselling, but never felt truly connected to the sessions, or the counsellor". Male, anxiety, low mood, OCD tendencies. *Online sessions

"My reason for choosing Hypnotherapy was due to suffering with anxiety which in turn lead me to experience IBS, and significant flare ups in anxiety provoking situations.  This was affecting my everyday life. I had previously tried to cut out different food groups, and do the odd mindfulness recordings here and there, but had never been consistent and I didn't believe that anything worked. Kate really helped me to look at situations differently and taught me lots of techniques which I continue to use daily which have completely changed my life.  I only had 4 (online) sessions and I can honestly say I have never felt so in control of my anxiety and IBS, and I am still amazed myself.  The techniques are now part of my everyday routine and I feel like I am still improving with my anxiety and IBS everyday! I am so grateful that I can finally worry less and enjoy life more thanks to Kate". Female, anxiety, IBS. *Online sessions.

I first contacted Kate to explore a more targeted approach to prepare for my upcoming driving test.  Before trying Hypnotherapy I had experienced 5  failed attempts, and with each attempt was becoming more nervous and frustrated; with my 6th test approaching, I wanted to explore new ways of relaxing, and reset my negative outlook in the hope that I could finally achieve my goal of obtaining my drivers licence.  After a few weeks of sessions, employing Kate's techniques, and using tailored hypnotherapy recordings, I began to notice a real difference, reframing my negative thoughts, and adopting a more focused and confident atttitude.  Using session material, and with Kate's encouragment, I was finally able to pass my driving test; a true testiment to the effectivlness of KM Hypnotherapy!  Following this, I decided to continue working with Kate for additional sessions, and picked up further relaxation and motivational techniques that could be applied more generally to my every day life, all of which have been truly valuable. Each session was helpful and built upon the last session's techniques and ideas. My own thoughts and preferences were always drawn upon for insiration, and were integrated into the recorded material provided, which ensured that the sessions entirely reflected my needs.  The session recordings and skills shared have reinforced a new way of thinking about myself, and situations which I previously found very stressful.  As well as boosting positivity and my level of focus, I have found it much easier to relax, and worry a lot less.  Kate has been incredibly professional, engaging, and compassionate throughout our time working together, and I have really enjoyed our sessions. I am incredibly grateful, and cannot recommend her services enough! Female, exam nerves, anxiety, confidence issues. *Online sessions.

"I contacted KM Hypnotherapy to discuss having hypnotherapy for my anxiety and IBS.  This was the last resort for me having tried other things, and Kate made me feel at ease understanding my diagnosis, and the issues I raised that I have daily.  Following my first session I was given an affirmation to use (which I still use now!) and after my first session I noticed that my symptoms of IBS were reduced, along with my anxiety.  My goal following my sessions was to be able to eat out with my family and friends, and to enjoy myself rather than worrying about what I was eating, or where the toilets were and following my first session, I went out for dinner and was living in the moment, and enjoying myself for the first time in a long time.  Kate has been amazing and taught me techniques that I will continue to use in the future.  My life changed overnight, and my symptoms, and anxiety have reduced significantly.  Even my friends have commented on how much more relaxed I am.  I would highly recommend booking in with Kate if you are suffering with IBS and not knowing where to turn next, as I said HYPNOTHERAPY HAS CHANGED MY LIFE, and I am grateful for Kate helping me. Female IBS, anxiety." *Online sessions.

"I had never considered seeing a therapist for my issues before but as my OCD tendancies, and anxiety started to spiral out of control I knew I needed help! I have found Kate very calm, professional and easy to talk to.  She is very good at pointing out the improvements that you are are making where at times you might not see them yourself.  She explains each exercise clearly and follows up each session with an e-mail re-emphasising what you have done, how you have improved and what the purpose behind the hypnosis session (recording) is. I have made a lot of progress in the time I have been seeing Kate and now have the confindence to continue working on my own, using her strategies to improve further.  I would definitely recommend Kate to anyone."  Female, long standing (0ver 20 years) OCD tendancies and anxiety.* Online sessions.

"I just wanted to say in writing how grateful I am for all your support, and I honestly wouldn't be as happy and secure of myself as I am today without you. It's difficult to put in writing how much you've helped me grow and how thankful I am for it because it has been life changing.  Thank you so much!" *Female, severe anxiety, low self confidence, Misophonia. *Online sessions.

"I didn't really know what to expect from hypnotherapy but went into it with an open mind. Kate's calm, thoughtful and empathic approach made me feel at ease instantly and allowed me to talk about difficult subjects. She learnt quickly what techniques and imagery worked for me and designed bespoke hypnotherapy recordings to help me to learn how to manage my anxiety for myself. I can say quite honestly that I wouldn't feel anywhere near as positively about my route forward with anxiety management without Kate's sessions, and it is reasurring to know that I can dip into the recordings at any time, and that Kate is happy to help me further should I need it." *Female, anxiety, OCD, Fears and phobias. *Online sessions.

"Kate, what can I say, you have honestly saved my life.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart". *Male, confidence, anxiety.

Testimonials from Mindfulness / Relaxation groups

Mindfulness with KM Hypnotherapy was great combination of different ideas, and techniques.  Something to suit everyone.  Kate is extremely knowledgeable and professional, as well as being very approachable, so I felt at ease throughout.  Thoroughly recommended".

"Anxiety has been an issue for a while but the sessions helped me learn techniques to manage my emotions, whilst meeting others who feel the same.  Kate makes you feel at ease and allows everyone to feel more comfortable with themselves." 

"Kate manages to put you at ease from the moment you meet her.  She is non judgemental but listens and challenges people to get to the root cause of issues.  She helps to find tailored techniques for individuals to help themselves. I wanted the course to go on for longer! - Excellent value for money.".

In a busy world we can often get caught up in the stress of day to day life, we rush around without really noticing how we are feeling.

What is Mindfulness? In a nutshell Mindfulness is a simple meditation, focusing on the present moment with acceptance of the here and now, acknowledging your thoughts, feelings and and how your body is feeling at that time.
