KATIE GUTHRIE – BA(hons), DHP HPD MNCH(Lic)AFSFH
Clinical Hypnotherapist & Psychotherapist
BATH AND CORSHAM
To me, life is to be enjoyed and when I experienced Solution Focused Hypnotherapy first hand, due to suffering from insomnia (after a small number of sessions, I was sleeping beautifully!), I knew it was something I needed to be a part of, I wanted others to benefit from it, since then it has become a number one passion for me! It is goal orientated, you tend to see results quickly, in comparison to other therapies, and more importantly, it gives you the tools to have fun and enjoy life more.
I therefore 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. The type of Diploma I have is considered ‘gold standard’ in hypnotherapy training.
Having worked as a legal recruiter for over 15 years, I naturally enjoy listening and communicating with people and have a sense of wanting to help. I considers my approach to be straightforward and practical, as well as friendly, positive and enjoyable.
When I am not working, I enjoy entertaining my young son, travelling and participating in many sporting activities, with my number one passion being running. I also love wine and nibbles with friends!

BRISTOL – Centre and Downend
I, like Katie have had first-hand experience of how hypnotherapy and SFBT can affect people’s lives (I suffered from anxiety and even from my first session of Solution Focussed Hypnotherapy, I felt like a new woman, a weight had been lifted!). Following on in my sisters footsteps, I enrolled on a training course at The Clifton Practice, one of the leading hypnotherapy centres in the South West, where I gained a Diploma in Hypnotherapy (DHP).
Having worked in Human Resources in Employee Relations, I consider myself very solution focused. I strongly believe positive change is possible regardless of the past. My aim is to help my clients make these changes and support them on their journey towards success, however complex or distressing their current circumstances may seem.
My style is client centred and I care enormously about putting people at ease by listening to their story in addition to bringing compassion, integrity and warmth into my session.
When I am not working I enjoy going on adventures with my two little girls. I also love to have ‘me’ time which often involves yoga, running or a good magazine accompanied by a steaming hot coffee!
