Hello, I’m Cathy
Born in Leyland, my career has taken me to Bath, Plymouth, Chorley and Southport. I graduated with DCR® in Diagnostic radiography in 1991 in Bath. I returned back to Southport where I worked in my families motor dealership business for the next 15 years. I was initially trained in sales and marketing, and fast tracked becoming the Dealer Principal. I worked for Peugeot, Southport and latterly for Volvo in Plymouth.
In 2012, I qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist with a Diploma In Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy (DHP) having studied at the prestigious Clifton Practice in Manchester.
In 2013, I was awarded the Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (HPD) by the National Council for Hypnotherapy. The HPD is considered the ‘Gold Standard’ in Hypnotherapy Training.
In 2015, I qualified as a NCH Hypnotherapy Supervisor, which means that I can support other Hypnotherapists with their clinical practice. In the same year I launched Leeds CPHT Hypnotherapy Training and was Senior Tutor until January 2020.
In 2019, I set up Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training in Liverpool (CPHT) with my colleague, Charlotte Spillane and now train students to become competent clinical hypnotherapists.
In 2020, I set up Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training in Preston (CPHT) with my colleague, Karen Dunnet, and now train students to become competent clinical hypnotherapists.
In 2020, I set up Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training in York (CPHT) with my colleague, John Lowson, and now train students to become competent clinical hypnotherapists in North Yorkshire.
I have two thriving practices in Southport and Chorley and I have seen hundreds of clients overcoming their mental health issues and nuisance factors. I thoroughly enjoy my work; feeling rejuvenated and inspired even at the end of the day.
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.
Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DHP) and a Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (HPD) – verified by the NCH and the NCFE.
I have an enhanced DBS certificate for working with vulnerable adults and children. I am professionally insured by Holistic Services Insurance.
