Paul is a qualified and insured Cognitive Hypnotherapy Practitioner and Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner.
Paul holds professional memberships with the Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy Practitioners Association, the National Council for Hypnotherapy and is fully DBS checked.
Having worked for 25 years in the corporate world, Paul struggled with his own mental well-being. It was from this experience that he became aware of the desperate need for a different approach to supporting men who are struggling too.
As a result Paul trained as a Mental Health First Aider and this ignited his passion for helping men struggling with mental health challenges. But he still felt more was needed and that was when he left the corporate world and retrained as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist.
Since then Paul has worked with private therapy clients to help them with anxiety, depression, stress, weight issues, self-esteem/lack of confidence issues, addiction and more.
Paul’s areas of specialist interest are:
- Building unshakeable confidence and solid self esteem.
- Supporting clients to overcome gambling addictions.
- Resolving performance anxiety issues.

Joyce is a qualified and insured Cognitive Hypnotherapist and Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner. She holds a Degree in Biological Sciences, a Masters in Work Design and Ergonomics, and a Ph.D. in Human Factors.
Joyce holds professional memberships with the Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy Practitioners Association, the National Council for Hypnotherapy and is fully DBS checked.
After being handed a diagnosis of PTSD and some talking therapy, Joyce was left wondering what to do next. Get back on with life? She was still struggling with patterns of thinking and behaviour that were keeping her stuck, self-sabotaging.
It was after a chat about Cognitive Hypnotherapy with Kate one day that she agreed to let Kate ‘give it a go’ (not really believing it would make all that much difference!)
It turned out to be a game changer and Joyce went on to qualify as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist herself. Joyce now helps children and young people thrive so that they can live confident, happy and fulfilled lives.
Joyce’s areas of specialist interest are:
- Supporting and enabling children and young people to thrive.
- Educating and supporting parents about neurodivergence and how to best support their children.
- Supporting children and young people in developing resilience for life.

What Our Clients Say
“Since working with Kate I can affect my emotions rather than my emotions completely ruling me. That's huge. To not feel completely the slave of the crap that's going on. I'm starting to listen to my gut, my own instinct and my insight rather than my head"
"Since working with Kate, I am so much happier, confident and even though I have intrusive thoughts sometimes it is not as much as before and I can separate myself from them. Iv been doing lots of things with family and friends. Im fine with driving now."
"I enjoyed all the hypnotherapy I found it very relaxing. I found all the induction’s really helpful that Kate sent me, I am still listening to them daily. I really can’t thank Kate enough, I'm a different person to how I was in January."
