Kate Hope

I live in Wigtown, Dumfries And Galloway.  Currently I offer an on -line service only for hypnotherapy and personalised meditations. . My real passion is working holistically which is why I trained across a range of therapies.Today, we accept that there is a distinct mind-body connection through which emotional, mental, social, and behavioural factors can directly affect our health. In the UK the average cost of car servicing and maintenance is £450 a year, I wonder what the average cost of maintaining wellness is ? I have a First Aid Certificate which has been renewed and kept up to date for some thirty five years. Safeguarding is also very important to me and I have been police checked since they came into being. I have an enhanced DBS which clears me to work with children and vulnerable adults. I'm a member of the General Hypnotherapy Register and have professional insurance. I like to think of myself as approachable and non judgemental, so please feel free to give me a call if you think any of the therapies I am trained in will benefit you. I'm open to combining therapies to get the best outcome for you. A little about me, well I have mostly lived in the North East of England, I'm always studying if not in complementary therapies then in another discipline ! I enjoy baking, walking, drawing and writing short stories.

All the Best,  Kate.

My Journey to being a ...

Complementary Therapist

I taught in Primary Schools for many years before making the move into welfare work. After some re training I worked for a Local Authority as an Individual Therapist working with children and teenagers in care. I began my training in complementary therapies in 1998 when I began to study Reflexology and Indian Head Massage, I gained a Diploma in both and I was hooked ! Soon after I began to study counselling and gained a Certificate in Counselling Theories, basic Counselling Skills, a Certificate in Counselling and a Foundation qualification in Therapeutic Counselling from The Northern Guild for Psychotherapy. In 2013 I studied Swedish Massage and gained a City and Guilds qualification with distinction. My ambition for many years was to study hypnotherapy . As a young woman I had benefited greatly from a course of hypnotherapy which had a very positive impact on me. I spent a lot of time researching which trainer to train with ! My efforts paid off, and I consider myself fortunate to have trained with Debbie Waller at Yorkshire Hypnotherapy Training in York. In March 2015 I gained a Foundation Certificate of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy and went on to study with Debbie for a Diploma of Clinical Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy, and a Certificate of NLP Skills. I gained a Diploma in Smoking Cessation with The College of Integrated  Therapies, and a Certificate in 'BLAST, EMDR, PTSD and Trauma' studying with Nick Davies from the Warwickshire School of Hypnotherapy. I'm currently studying with Debbie again for a qualification to teach mindfulness.  The journey continues...
