My name is Katie Peterson and I’m based in Falkirk, between Edinburgh and Glasgow.

I am a solution focused Clinical Hypnotherapist, with professional indemnity insurance, a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNCH) and work to their Codes of Ethics and Confidentiality Policies.  I have a full disclosure certificate for working with children and vulnerable adults and I’m registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

I’m married to Robert, and I am mum to two young children.

My whole career has centred around helping people, which I love. I have worked for over 33 years in the NHS as a Specialised Clinical (Neuro) Physiologist working one to one with people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds, including paediatrics.  I previously managed one of the largest Neurophysiology departments in a major teaching hospital in Scotland, using highly specialised equipment to measure electrical activity in the brain and nervous systems of the body in order that patients get the correct diagnosis and therefore the best treatment and outcomes.  My scientific expertise in this field subsequently sparked my interest in the benefits of hypnotherapy; there are many parallels.

The benefits of exercise are also now really well known, therefore in order to help others realise their full potential, I became a group fitness instructor in 2009.  I have specialised in group fitness sessions for the elderly as well as leading high intensity indoor cycling classes.  Everyone can benefit from regular tailored exercise!

Teaching fitness classes along with participation in yoga and meditation and qualifying as a clinical hypnotherapist has led me to live a more holistic lifestyle, with a common thread running through everything that I do.

Let’s see if I can help?

I appreciate how hard it can be to ask for help, and I will do my best to help you to feel supported and understood.  I am passionate about helping and empowering others and I genuinely care.  I feel the combination of all my life and work experiences has given me invaluable skills to provide support that makes a real difference to people’s lives.
