Let me introduce myself


Hello, I’m Catherine Eland,

Clinical  Solution Focused Hypnotherapist

Senior Tutor at CPHT Hypnotherapy Training in Leeds

NCH Hypnotherapy Supervisor for other hypnotherapists.

Growing up in Leyland, I moved to Bath when I was 18 to study Radiography at the Royal United Hospital in Bath. After 8 years I eventually took the plunge and I decided to return home to Southport to join the family business. My family were in the motor industry and after time I became the Dealer Principle of the Car Dealership.  It was at this time when I began to research the use of hypnotherapy.

It took me a while to find the right course and six years ago I enrolled on the CPHT Hypnotherapy training course in Manchester. The idea of having a career in hypnotherapy seemed the logical choice. I have thoroughly enjoyed helping 100’s of people in my clinics in Southport and Chorley. In March we will also be opening a Birkdale Clinic in the centre of Liverpool.

I am now a Senior Lecturer in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy at the Trinity University in Leeds. Together with my good friend and colleague Jenny Mellenchip we have established CPHT Hypnotherapy Training in Leeds. The next intake for this weekend course is September 2018. Supervising other hypnotherapists is also a role I enjoy.


When I am not hypnotising, tutoring, and supervising, there is a good chance you will find me conjuring up something Italian in the kitchen. I am always trying to play golf better and love to visit South Africa.
