My name is Katie Bagnall. I am a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist (DSFH) (HPD) trained by CPHT (Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training), the gold standard in hypnotherapy training and I am now a Junior Lecturer for them. I am registered with the AfSFH, NCH and CNHC. I am fully insured and hold an enhanced DBS. I absolutely love my job and am very passionate about what I do, having worked with a wide range of individuals who have had very successful journeys and results with me. I have a particular interest in support people with anxiety and stress.
I originally trained as a teacher and taught in schools for a number of years. I was led to Solution Focused Hypnotherapy myself when I went through a low time in my life. I felt alone and confused, lacked confidence and had a very negative mindset. Over the years I had tried a few different therapies, all of which had involved discussing the past, something I hadn’t found beneficial in any way. I knew I wanted to move forward, not dwell on the past. I stumbled across a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist in my local community, purely by coincidence. After only 6 sessions with her, my mindset had completely changed, I was able to make confident decisions and I found a new found sense of self worth in myself. The lady mentioned became a good friend of mine, and I will forever be grateful to her for helping me to change my life around, something I aspire to do with my clients. I soon realised that it was time for me to move on from teaching, and what better way to do so than to start my Solution Focused Hypnotherapy training with CPHT, a decision that absolutely changed my life.
I am a firm believer that we have little power of what has happened in the past or will happen in the future but we have complete power over how we respond. Once we come to realise this and change the way we look at things, the things we look at also seem to change. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy enabled me to do this and it will for you too.
