your catalyst to change...
Rapid Transformation Therapy to take your life to the next level
Therapy and Mindfulness
Life doesn't always deal you the hand you want, but that doesn't mean you can't change the odds in your favour.
What is Rapid Transformational Therapy?
RTT embraces aspects of hypnotherapy – such as trance, regression and hypnotic conditioning – known to produce a transformative effect on clients. However, by also employing a series of techniques designed to alert the patient’s subconscious to key discoveries as they occur, RTT enables profound and lasting change to be achieved quickly, often within a single 90-minute session.
Innovative hypnotherapy for fast, lasting results...
It's about empowerment...
I empower individuals to overcome personal obstacles to improve their relationship with themselves and others. The evidenced-based techniques and interventions I use in my sessions have been clinically tested and are proven to work. The object of my highly focused sessions is to help those who may be stuck in a vicious circle or suffering from the after-effects of stress and trauma to find a healthy yet dynamic balance, enabling them to feel calmer and in control.
A gateway to body mind connection
Do you want to take your life to the next level? Open up the blocks that have prevented you from moving forward?
Are you shut down due to past trauma, anxiety and oppressed emotions? Would you like to radiate confidence?

PERFORMANCE AND ANXIETY SPECIALIST
I am a certified Advanced Rapid Transformational Therapist and Clinical Hypnotherapist, trained by Marisa Peer, the founder of RTT. I specialise in unlocking potential, and liberating clients from their fears, phobias and limiting behaviours.
I am also a WimHof Method Instructor.
RTT Hypnotherapy can improve sports and business performance, reignite motivation, and relieve anxiety and depression. It has achieved great success in overcoming health problems and addictions, and is also highly effective for clients wishing to achieve their ideal weight.
Catherine has organised retreats both in the UK and Majorca focusing on breath, mindfulness and cold exposure, combined with meditation, healing and shamanic teachings.
Qualified and trained in First Aid, Equality and Diversity, Safeguarding Adults & Children, Mind Mental Health Awareness, GDPR & data protection, DBS approved.
If you can't remove old outdated belief systems you can't move forward. RTT addresses this, quickly, thoroughly and profoundly.
I first became interested in RTT when, as a mentor for disenfranchised young offenders, I discovered that the root cause of their problems was usually an outdated belief system, giving rise to feelings of disconnection and a lack of self-worth. RTT is designed to help you move past limiting, outdated belief systems quickly, and can result in rapid, profound and lasting change. Having already studied Mindfulness, EFT tapping and NLP, I now deepened my practice by training as an RTT therapist. My unique way of working is to use the skills I’ve gained in my training in combination with my intuition and empathy, in order to tap into the phenomenal power that the human mind has to heal. My personal experience of suffering helps me to connect deeply with you to uncover the root of the problem, which often isn’t what you think it is. My practice is dedicated to supporting and motivating you on your journey to reigniting your true potential and living a life you love.

About Your Treatment
In Sherborne, Wootton Rivers, London and ONLINE
Hypnosis is not about being made to do things you don’t want to do.The key to successful therapy is therefore your desire to change, and your strong commitment to doing so.
What to expect
In your therapy session you will experience a deep state of relaxation. You will remain in control and often be fully aware, but your conscious mind will be free to drift off, allowing your subconscious mind to awaken and become open to positive suggestion.
While you are under hypnosis, I will use inner child work and regression to uncover and help you understand the root cause of the issues you are experiencing. This understanding will give you your personal power back. Once you have that, you can change almost anything.
How long is the session?
Please allow up to two hours for your first session. Subsequent sessions may take less time (up to 80 mins).
Do I need to prepare anything beforehand?
Please consider the issues that are important to you and be prepared to commit to positive change.
We will run through a consultation form before the session.
You will need to sign and accept the conditions, so please have a look before.
ONLINE clients must provide an emergency contact, either your medical professional or a close relative/friend. You will also need to confirm that you are/will be in a place that is safe, comfortable, supported and clear from any nearby objects that maybe harmful.
How many sessions will I need?
Many problems can be dealt with in a single two-hour session. However, some issues may require up to three sessions. To help you bring about the changes you are looking for, I will offer ongoing support, including a recording designed to reinforce and embed the insights gained during your session.
The cost of your therapy will depend on your specific requirements: please contact me to discuss these and find out more.
A session is two hours, additional time on your first session will be charged at half rate.
How can I pay
You can now pay with Visa or Mastercard as well as cash or cheque.
iZettle also mean that I can accept credit card payment from Maestro, V Pay, Visa Electron, JCB and Discover.

Facts about Hypnosis
HYPNOSIS IS VERY POWERFUL AND HELPS YOU ACHIEVE YOUR TRUE POTENTIAL.
Hypnosis helps you tap into your inherent power. It increases focus, concentration and the ability to relax and recharge quickly.
EVERYONE CAN BE HYPNOTISED.
Anyone who is able and willing to follow instructions can be hypnotised. You cannot be hypnotised against your will because hypnosis is a consensual state. It works best when you really want to make changes in your life.
HYPNOSIS IS NOT SLEEP, NOR IS IT RELAXATION
Hypnosis is a focused yet relaxed awareness, harnessing the subconscious mind – which is highly receptive to POSITIVE suggestion. To gain insight you’ll be conscious and alert throughout the session.
HYPNOSIS IS A STATE OF MIND – NOT A FEELING.
Hypnosis is not a feeling – it’s a state of mind. Some people feel light, like they’re floating; some feel grounded and safe like a tree; others feeling nothing at all or a light buzzing feeling. They’re all correct – and it’s different for everyone.
HYPNOSIS IS A NORMAL AND NATURAL STATE OF MIND.
You’ve likely been in a state of hypnosis hundreds of times in your life. A light state of hypnosis is achieved anytime you lose track of time.
HYPNOSIS WORKS FOR BELOW THE LEVEL OF CONSCIOUS THINKING.
This means you become aware of things that you might not have been aware of before – leading to powerful insight.
HYPNOSIS WORKS FOR NEARLY EVERY ISSUE.
Hypnosis can help you lose weight, change habits, reduce pain, increase motivation, help you heal from physical and mental illnesses, eliminate fear/anxiety and addictions.
YOU ARE ALWAYS IN CONTROL DURING HYPNOSIS.
As your hypnotist I serve as a guide and coach, working with you to understand your needs and goals and provide you with the tools to transform and enhance your life.
HYPNOSIS WORKS REALLY FAST.
Just as our brain can quickly learn a phobia (learnt fear), our brain can also learn a new response to an old situation very quickly. The brain is lightning fast and can change due to neuroplasticity.
HYPNOSIS WORKS – EVEN WHEN EVERYTHING ELSE HAS FAILED.
Even if you’ve tried other things to resolve your issue, hypnosis can still work because it works differently – it taps into the power of the subconscious mind where our memories and emotions are stored.

Tanya - Comedian"A session with Cat is life changing. Oh. My. God. She is amazing. I feel like a different person. I never thought this day would come. I wondered if I'd ever feel truly happy again. I was miserable for years, culminating in depression, anxiety and panic attacks. There was a really important 'detangling' that happened and I am now very excited about this new found freedom I feel. I have this sense of inner peace and contentment that I haven't felt in decades. Even at work, the stress others were going through just didn't affect me. Cat rescues people from very dark places. What better thing is there to do in life?! She's an absolute magician."
L. Hales – Global Marketing Manager
"I was suffering from overall stress and anxiety [from my battle with] breast cancer twice and (much more positively) two babies in quick succession, as well as trying to manage a very stressful job.Cat helped me with a range of techniques to address my overall anxiety which not only made me feel calmer but gave me tools [to use] when I feel under pressure.My sessions… gave me the confidence to completely change the work side of my life so that I am more assertive and confident. I have noticed dramatic improvements… and would highly recommend Cat.She is so empathetic and knowledgeable with a vast array of tools to drawer from - a winning combination I would say!
John – Entrepreneur
"To be honest I was a little sceptical about hypnotherapy prior to my session with Cat. Friends had told me that this treatment was ineffective and advised me against going; however I went and am ever so glad I did.
Cat is such a confident and warm person that I had no difficulty slipping into a deep hypnosis during out 2 hour session, and the healing results were astounding. I was able to feel a complete reset almost rebirth and the session has lasted with me for over 6 months. I would seriously recommend a session with Cat and hope that you take the plunge; you’re in safe hands."
Chloe – Common Wealth Athlete
"In just two sessions, she heard, held and healed me – unforgettable."

I have looked forward to the sessions I have had, as I know they have been both pleasurable and effective."
