July 2024

I have recently been going through a traumatic time in my life and to be honest, probably for most of my life, and over the years I have tried numerous therapies, but none ever really worked, so I thought I would give Katie a go as I’d heard many good things and anyway, apart from the cost of her service I had nothing to lose.

Well I’ve been for 3 sessions so far and I am now in a better place than I’ve ever been in my whole life. She has helped me feel so positive about my future, I am much calmer, I deal with what used make me anxious and stressed a lot better than I’ve ever done. I also have so much more energy and my eating and digestion are so much better and I don’t sweat as much when dealing with daily life, and my sleeping is just fantastic as I listen to Katie’s recording once in bed.

I totally recommend Katie. I can’t put my finger on exactly what she does, but whatever it is, it works for me.”

June 2024

I lost faith and confidence not only in myself but also in my own body after quite a traumatic experience after my hysterectomy. Other events and of course the dreaded lockdown then took its toll. I really really didn’t want to leave the house, I was piling on the weight and even though I wanted to or at least thought I did, it was almost like everything I tried a brick wall would appear in front of me and there was no way round or over it. Then there was the excessive snacking, filling a hole maybe! 

I tried lots of different things, was on anti depressants for a while and nothing really fitted what it was i needed help with. After a lot of research and gathering the courage I finally contacted Katie at Central Scotland Clinical Hypnotherapy.

I was nervous and sceptical but after my first session and that amazing feeling of calm, I knew this was for me. I followed Katies plan, always done my ‘homework’ and can say with absolute honesty and certainty that it was these sessions with Katie that helped me gain confidence, trust my body and most of all just like myself again. Katie makes you feel ‘normal’ and that these feelings, doubts etc you are having are normal as well and it’s ok to get help to sort them out.

Katie, thank you so much for everything, you made me feel at ease during that first phone call and ever since.

May 2024

I had sessions to help me deal with anxiety & overthinking.

Katie took time to thoroughly understand my issues and tailored the sessions and recordings to suit me perfectly. Her soothing voice & words had me so relaxed, I fell completely asleep on two occasions and had to be woken up. 

Living so far away from Katie, one to one sessions were not possible, so we did a mixture of online sessions and remote recordings for me to listen to, which worked well, along with regular text check-ins. 

I’ve really felt the benefits of the sessions and continue to enjoy the recordings daily. 

I would highly recommend working with Katie if you’re thinking of hypnotherapy

Katie helped me so much through my anxiety and panic attacks.

After Covid, I was really struggling to go anywhere alone and was having panic attacks while in the car alone on even the shortest journey. I was always making excuses to get out of going to friends parties etc. Having tried everything, including tablets from the doctor, I thought I would try hypnotherapy.

Katie was great and really understanding. Even after the 1st session I felt a bit better. After my hypnotherapy sessions I am now back driving alone, able to go places alone, even managed an interview and bagged a promotion at work. If it wasn’t for Katie and the hypnotherapy I have no idea where I would be now. Thanks so much for helping me be able live life again!

Review – Adrienne

I recently attended CSCH where Katie helped me with my anxiety.

I found her treatment relaxing and her voice very calming. She also gave me some self help advice.

Katie was  professional and very knowledgeable in her field.

I have no hesitation in recommending her.

Thank you Katie.

Bereavement & Loss

Therapies - Bereavement & Loss

When grief is prolonged and you are finding it difficult to come to terms with the loss, support is particularly important.  Grief is very personal and you may experience all kinds of difficult and unexpected emotions, from shock or anger to disbelief, guilt and profound sadness. The pain of grief can also disrupt your physical health making it difficult to sleep, eat or concentrate, you may even feel numb and empty.

Hypnotherapy can help you to overcome grief and loss and reach the stage where the memories of your loved one can be enjoyed without the attached pain of missing them.  It can help to teach your brain to focus on the memories you shared, rather than on the sadness of your grief.

I am so sorry for your loss.  Please know that there is hope and help is available when you need it. 

Email katie@csch.scot or use the contact form for a no obligation chat if you need help to overcome your loss –   I am more than happy to help.

Pain Management

Therapies - Pain Management

Pain is something we all experience to some extent throughout our lives, be it physical pain and/or emotional pain.  It’s the body’s way of communicating that something has changed. When pain becomes persistent it becomes more complex. 

How you respond to the discomfort can be managed and improved by hypnotherapy.  Many people use hypnotherapy as an effective tool in the management of pain and pain perception.

An appropriate medical evaluation must always be the first step, but once the cause of the pain has been diagnosed by a doctor, hypnotherapy can commence.

Paediatric Hypnotherapy

Paediatric Hypnotherapy

Unfortunately, today’s children and young people suffer from many stresses and challenges: learning, school and exam concerns; family and relationship issues; development of friendships and bullying; all of which can be exacerbated in a digital world where social media and the internet may adversely impact upon a young person’s development. This often creates anxiety and can lower their self-esteem; therefore it is important to recognise concerning changes in behaviour and personality and address these promptly.

Children can develop unhelpful habits like bed-wetting, difficulty sleeping, thumb sucking and picky eating.  They can also have fears and phobias, just like adults, like the fear of spiders, clowns, dogs/animals, lifts, public toilets, enclosed spaces, or flying.

Hypnotherapy works wonderfully well with children and young people; they have amazing imaginations and can easily visualise stories and adventures making it much easier to change their perception and make positive improvements.

Stress

Therapies - Stress

We can lower stress levels if we change our thinking and focus on more positive areas of our life, even if the negative events that we have no control over are still current.

All of our worries get stored in a metaphorical “stress bucket”. If we keep thinking negatively then at some point that bucket will overflow, heightening anxiety which could make it difficult to cope with day-to-day life.

Hypnotherapy provides methods for stopping things going into your “stress bucket” and once the flow of negative thoughts is reduced, I can use alternative methods to empty it.

Let’s have a chat about how I can help you to successfully reduce your stress levels.

Insomnia

Therapies - Insomnia

Insomnia is difficulty in getting to sleep, maintaining sleep or early wakening, which occurs despite adequate opportunity for sleep and results in impaired daytime functioning.

Sleep is something that everybody needs and it plays a vital role in both our physical and mental health.

Hypnotherapy can help you to break the cycle of sleepless nights by encouraging relaxation and unwinding, creating an opportunity to re-orientate your thoughts and emotions, so you can get the quality of sleep that you need to be healthy and alert throughout the day.

Let’s have a chat about how I can help you to successfully improve the quality of your sleep.

Anxiety & Panic Attacks

Therapies - Anxiety

We can all feel anxious at times… often when trying something new or before a big event. This is perfectly natural, but sometimes these worries can spiral into a more generalised anxiety which affects our ability to cope with everyday life.

Hypnotherapy for anxiety and panic can help boost feelings of confidence and self-belief while reducing feelings of fear and intense worry.  It can help you develop the ability to access a relaxed state of mind which is needed to overcome the overwhelming emotions that come with anxiety. 

Let’s have a chat about how I can help you to successfully reduce your anxiety levels.
