Prior to becoming a clinical hypnotherapist I had a successful career working as a Creative Director in an advertising and marketing company. Being a highly driven ‘career woman’ I started a family a bit later in life.
After taking a few years out whilst bringing up my son, my priorities had changed, which in turn changed me. I developed a strong interest in people. After carrying out some research, I impulsively enquired about a course, attended an interview then started the course the following week. I soon discovered how powerful Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is and the impact it was making to people’s lives. I was completely inspired.
I am located near the beautiful city of Wells.
I trained at the prestigious Clifton Practice, a recognised accredited centre of excellence for hypnotherapy and psychotherapy in the UK. I have been awarded the Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (HPD) the first nationally accredited hypnotherapy qualification awarded by the NCFE National Awarding Body. I am a professional, registered, accredited clinical hypnotherapist who has a wide range of experience working with many different issues. I enjoy helping people to achieve their goals and bringing happiness and fulfilment back into their lives. I specialise in treating anxiety related difficulties and provide an individual, caring and confidential treatment program.
I am a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), one of the main professional bodies in the UK. I am registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the UK regulator for complementary healthcare meeting national occupational standards and abide by a rigorous code of conduct, performance and ethics. I am also a member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapists (AfSFH).
I continue to study and broaden my skills by regularly attending courses as part of my commitment to continuous professional development.
Courses for 2015 include Psychoneuroimmunology (the impact of hypnotherapy on disease) and Neuroscience.

“After bringing up three children in the space of six years I’d completely lost my confidence to go back to work. I felt worthless. Kirstie helped me enormously, firstly by explaining why I was feeling the way I was and then what I could do to change. I was constantly reminded of my successes (both before children and after) and taught me how to be positive. I feel so much more confident now, I’m genuinely excited about starting my new job in a few weeks.”
