About Kate








Like you, I was once looking for help some years ago. Having successfully experienced Hypnotherapy I went on to train as a therapist myself.

Since then I’ve become a fully accredited and insured Hypnotherapist, NLP Master Practitioner, Motivational Self Development Coach, DISC Personality Profiler, Psy-Tap PractitionerSleepTalk® consultant, Auricular Acupressure and Acupuncture Practioner and Reiki Practitionerwith many years of Nursing experience to support my caring and holistic approach to therapy.

Although based in the West Country, I work internationally with both children and adults offering you a personal solution-focused experience. This allows for powerful behaviour change so that you achieve the goals you want. As a SleepTalk® consultant I can offer you help with this long-established programme for children. SleepTalk® is a process for children with difficulties and children with none. It’s about developing a child’s emotional resilience. It has been successful in resolving issues such as ADHD, bedwetting, poor concentration, sibling rivalry and much more sometimes in as a little as a few days and has been used effectively by thousands of families around the world over the last 40 years.

I’m passionate about helping you create positive change. My own personal growth through Coaching, Hypnotherapy and NLP means I can really empathise with you and work with you on your journey.

After many years as a Registered General Nurse, I trained at Diploma level in  Neuro Linguistic Programming and found it so empowering that I went on to do the Practitioner and Master Course. Life was beginning to change positively for me as a direct result of ‘practicing what I preached’ using NLP, and my own experience of Hypnosis. Since the early days, I have done further Hypnosis training, Accredited Coaching training and DISC personality profiling and I continue my study with training from academies such as Mike Mandel in Toronto – http://mikemandelhypnosis.com/products/,  and Kevin Laye http://psy-tap.com/and Jonathan Chase here in England. https://jonathanchase.com/  I also read voraciously adding to my knowledge from great tutors and authors such as Norman Doidge, Roger Callahan, Shawn Carson and Melissa Tiers.

My long career as a Primary Care Nurse means I can also really understand your health issues such as obesity, anxiety, asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.

I have also united with other professionals such as Coach and Trainer Partner member for Momentum South West https://www.momentumsouthwest.co.uk

I have also worked with young adults as an Engaging Enterprise Youth Leader for the charity Young Devon. http://www.youngdevon.org/

I offer a free initial consultation where I explain to you what the therapies and practices I have can help you. I want you to be fully informed and comfortable about working with me and how I can help you.

Stress and anxiety are normal in our lives, it’s how we deal with it and how we let it affect us that makes the difference. During your time with me, I explain what’s happening from a neuroscientific perspective and give you tools to help you right away as well as using processes such as hypnosis to give you long-lasting results.

My aim is to continually be delivering a professional, confidential, high value, client-focused service.
