Solution Focused Hypnotherapist

Katie GuthrieKatie has first-hand experience of how Hypnotherapy and Solution Focused Therapy can affect people’s lives  (she suffered from insomnia and a Hypnotherapist changed her life, she now sleeps beautifully!). Katie qualified in 2011 from the Clifton Practice, a leading Hypnotherapy Centre in the South West, which also provides training in one of the most up to date therapies in the UK, Solution Focused Therapy.

Having worked as a legal recruiter for over 15 years, Katie naturally enjoys communicating with people and has a sense of wanting to help. She considers her approach to be straightforward and practical, as well as friendly, positive and enjoyable.

When she is not working, she enjoys entertaining her young son, travel and participating in many sporting activities, with her number one passion being running.

(Solution Focused Therapy is exactly what the name suggests; it is a form of therapy that focuses on the solution rather than the problem. It is based around goal setting, positive change and the formulation of solutions. It is a quick and effective process that will help you break the cycle of negative thinking and behaviour. It can take only between 3 to 12 sessions depending on the problem to get better – compared to some other therapies this is brief..! Used in conjunction with Hypnotherapy, Solution Focused Therapy is an impressive tool that will really get you back on track and become that person you used to or want to be).

“I went to Katie because I am set to give a best man speech and was petrified at the thought! I had suffered from social anxiety most of my adult life and just didn’t think I could go through with it, without help.

I had tried hypnotherapy several years ago for social anxiety but without success. What sets Katie aside from other hypnotherapists is that she firstly listens to what it is you want to achieve and then begins to dive in and help you resurface.

 After my sessions with Katie I came out feeling so positive. I felt and acted like I was so much more in control. I am now feeling more relaxed when I’m with people, so am able to think with more clarity and conversations in general seem to come more naturally. I certainly feel the up and coming best man speech isn’t the insurmountable task I once thought it to be!”  IT Consultant

“I have suffered with stress and anxiety for sometime and have always found it difficult to switch off and sleep properly. Since attending Katie’s guided relaxation classes I have seen a real positive change in my quality of life. I am no longer waking in the night with my mind racing and friends have commented on how much more relaxed and less anxious I am. Katie’s Thursday night classes have become a fixture in my diary and the most rewarding half hour of the week! I would encourage anybody to try this, you will be truly surprised at the difference 30 minutes quiet time for yourself can make.”  Accountant

“I initially asked Katie for help because I was scared of running down hill in slippery conditions, this came on suddenly after years of not even thinking about it. Katie also helped me address some chronic deep seeded issues with self confidence and low-esteem, so not only did she help me with my primary problem, that actually became super easy to solve, she helped me in my everyday life. This included helping me to find the confidence to change jobs, as well as giving me the tools to unlock potential in my running capabilities. I went from a runner that needed to be assisted by two other runners to walk down a hill to a confident runner down hill and across mud! So much so that I got selected to race in Brussels for the Iris Lotto Cup twice, won the Sodbury Slog and set new course records in Fell racing! Hypnotherapy also gave me new found confidence in my road races capabilities too and more importantly gave me the skills to learn how to relax and switch off from work in the evenings. Katie changed my life and gave me the tool to take control and feel empowered.” – Debbie, Elite runner
