“The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide you’re not going to stay where you are”



Hello and thank you for visiting my website.

My name is Kate Bird and I am a Hypnotherapist and Counsellor based in Gravenhurst, Bedfordshire

If you need help moving your life forward, consider counselling and or hypnotherapy. Facing things with therapeutic support gives you a real chance of being the person you want to be.

I am a firm believer that talking is great therapy. We all have lots going on in our lives and sometimes it can just get too much. Maybe there is something that happened in your past that you need to tackle, maybe everyday life is just so stressful that you don’t know how you will cope. Have you lost a loved one, do you have exam nerves, are you eating or drinking too much?

Friends and family can be great but there are times when you feel you simply can’t share everything with them. Therapy offers an opportunity to share hopes and fears, thoughts and feelings in a safe, secure, confidential environment without judgement. It enables valuable feedback and provides tremendous support.

Issues where Hypnotherapy and Counselling may help include:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Fears & Phobias
  • Weight loss 
  • Eating Disorders
  • Relationships
  • Addictions
  • Depression
  • Abuse
  • Neglect
  • Grief and loss
  • Loss of purpose
  • Stopping Smoking


In busy everyday life, few of us give sufficient time and thought to relaxation. Hypnosis can be a very powerful way of helping you to relax and can also be used therapeutically.





Sometimes its hard to talk to those closest and this can lead to feelings of isolation. Counselling offers an opportunity to explore thoughts and feelings and to find a way to move forward in life.
