Hi I’m Katie Leitzell, a Clinical Solution Focused Hypnotherapist at the Observatory Practice. Although originally from California, I have settled and called England my home for the past 24 years. I am fully qualified in Hypnotherapy, having trained right here at the CPHT in 2021. I am insured, hold an enhanced DBS certificate and am registered with the main governing bodies for hypnotherapy. I also undertake regular supervision and CPD, which keeps me up to date with the latest research in Hypnotherapy.
Having been a Primary School Teacher for the past 20 years, I like to think that I have a wealth of experience with people of all ages and enjoy working with adults and children. I have been a volunteer on a national crisis helpline, helping people deal with feelings of suicide, and have worked within the LGBTQ+ community as a mental health advocate signposting people to local or national support. Now as a client-centred Hypnotherapist, I have a passion for helping people like you or your loved ones to overcome whichever of life’s difficulties seem to come your way. I see my role in therapy as a catalyst to re-ignite the real you, to help guide you gently along the path back to yourself.
Do you ever feel overwhelmed by negative thinking? Do you suffer from anxiety? Are you the parent or carer of a loved one who is struggling at school or in life? These are just some of the problems that solution focused hypnotherapy can help with. Throughout our therapy sessions we will focus on the method that helps create positive change. From anxiety, depression or OCD to fears and phobias, PTSD, stopping smoking or sports performance, I feel ready to help you or your loved one with any issues arising.
