I come from a clinical background of nursing and midwifery with over 20 years of experience of working in a variety of specialties. The thing I’ve enjoyed most throughout my career is helping people with their emotional issues as well as their physical problems. I decided to train in Counselling and Psychotherapy as this area really intersted me and discovered that part of my course included a Diploma in Hypnotherapy. I was very new to the concept of hypnosis at that point and like many people was slightly wary of how it could work. Once I started to study the subject I was completely in awe of the possibilities that it held. It made such sense to me that if we feel that we can’t achieve something, there must be some greater force stopping us succeeding and the discovery of the power of the subconscious mind was amazing.
I further developed this area of practice by training to become a Certified Hypnotic Birthing Practitioner (CHBP).
I went on to study for a Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy and then an Advanced Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy and have seen the benefits of giving clients the opportunity to talk through their problems in a safe and confidential setting. My clients are given time to talk through how they feel and this time allows them to gain clarity and find their own answers.
I am also a Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT®) Practitioner offering a new and exciting form of therapy which can provide very quick and effective results.
I am a Professional Member of the National Hypnotherapy Society (MHS), an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society (MNCS(Acc)) and a Member of The Institute of Brain Working Recursive Therapy (MIBWRT) and work within their Codes of Ethics. I also undertake regular Supervision and remain up to date with current practice through Continuous Professional Development.
My Practice is based in Lower Earley, Reading with easy access from M4 and A329(M). Please contact Catherine for further details.
