Welcome to my profile. I have experience of working with many issues including anxiety, depression, low self esteem, grief and weight loss. I am passionate about helping others to let go of what is holding them back and to give you the tools to use outside of the sessions, whenever you need to. I am based in Stapleford, Nottingham NG9, which is easily accessible from both the Nottingham and Derby areas. Online and Telephone counselling also available.
What I offer
I offer a free, no obligation, initial consultation of 30 minutes so we can discuss your goals and needs and you can ask me any questions you may have. I will explain all about the therapy you are interested in and how I can help you and should you want too, we will make an appointment for another session. Thereafter, sessions are hourly and ideally weekly. All sessions are professional, individual and confidential and in a comfortable, safe environment where you can start to make the changes needed.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions or to book in. I am also on Facebook. www.facebook.com/katestherapeuticservices
'Thanks so much, it has broken the cycle and she no longer seems to get anxious or even nervous! She was like a different child on the plane - she took her work sheets but didn't even need them! Just been to the dentist and she was amazing. Thanks again.' Em
'Kate is such a lovely lady, she has a genuine warmth and compassion. If you are struggling with a problem, I would recommend getting in touch with Kate.' Dawn
'EFT - Highly recommended. Best money i've ever spent.'Kate
'I just want to say thankyou as my son is doing really well. He does try more foods, still not loads but he doesn't get anxious about food like he used too, which is brilliant. He didn't stress about the food too much at prom, so it didn't spoil his night and we are going out for Christmas dinner and he's looking forward too it 'there'll be something I like' was his response when I asked if it was ok - this never used to happen. So definitely a change in mindset, which is great and I'm really proud of him. What you do is life changing. He has to implement changes but you have given him the skills to do it. Thank you, we will defintely be in touch in the future, should we have any issues.' Jane
'I recently went to Kate for a session of EFT or 'tapping' to try and deal with feelings of sadness/anger and anxiety bought on by traumatic events over the past few years, which have in turn affected my physical health. I've never had any form of therapy or counselling with anyone before so I went into the experience with an open mind. I'm so glad I went! Kate made me feel incredibly comfortable and I found her very open and so easy to talk to. She tailored the tapping experience as we went along by asking questions and monitoring my mood and also my train of thought.
Kate was lovely and understanding with a very calm and professional approach and that's what made my tapping experience so effective. I was able to really let myself go and delve into my emotional headspace in order to gain the most from my experience. I also came away, not only with a feeling of achievement and strength that I had actually defeated a few demons but with a really good technique that I can try by myself at home (if the mood arises or the black cloud descends!) Needless to say, I will be returning to Kate for EFT and would highly recommend her'.
'I would like to thank you for all your help, very professional and a major factor in me passing my driving test today after a few attempts and suffering nerves. All the best Kate and can't thank you enough.
So a few months back, I was at my lowest point ever of my life. I was getting to the point where I didn't know who I really was, crying everyday as I hated who I was and wouldn't talk to my family. I was thinking all silly thoughts of doing things to myself as I was so depressed and suffering with anxiety. As a family we have had a lot going off with my dads illness, Gareth my brother leaving the family and a lot more. With my lovely friend's advice, she was telling me that counselling was a brilliant way of helping with depression and anxiety. I took her advice and found the lovely Kate, my counsellor. Kate was there for me most weeks to talk to about all my problems and towards the end of my sessions, I was talking about my progress I was making with getting my life back together.
After a number of sessions I have found the old me back, I am so happy with my life. I have my ups and downs but I have little ways of dealing with it as Kate has helped me build a toolbox of anxiety techniques. I have so much to look forward too this year, getting married to the man of my dreams and hopefully to start a family with him one day. Also I have such a supportive family behind me, my wondeful Mum and Dad. I miss my brother don't get me wrong but I am coping so much better with the help from Kate and my family behind me. It doesn't bother me anymore, I am a stronger and better person.
Today I finished my last counselling session with Kate, she has promised to be there for me in the future to help me if I need it. I am so grateful to Kate and just want to share with people how important it is to talk. I was so nervous and scared about opening up, I opened up more to Kate than I did with my family as I was scared I was going to hurt them. Thank you so much Kate, you do such an amazing job and I just want to make people aware of the brilliant work you do.'
'Kate was brilliant and it is the best decision I have made to speak and start working with her to address my panic attacks.
Before our sessions, I thought there could be a magic wand to make it all better, but life isn't like that, I will always have to work hard at it but feel better placed to do so now. Kate listened, she never belittled anything or made me feel silly. She was very understanding and supported me immensely. We used theories to explain how I was feeling, related them to my life as a guide to look at how to change my mind set and overcome a huge amount of anxiousness.
Kate put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. I'd therefore recommend anyone who feels anxious or nervous to see her as everyone has different personalities and it's about finding the best person to help you, I feel very lucky that Kate and I worked so well together. I would not hesitate to recommend Kate to anyone who needs help.'
'Thanks Kate Banton, such an amazing experience highly recommended that was an amazing past life regression!'
'I met Kate whilst training on Dip Hypnotherapy (trainer Chris Padro) in 2008. Since we've attended training days and workshops together, hypnoanalysis (free association) EFT Emotional Freedom Technique and NLP (Nuero Lingusitic Programming) working closely through our CPD (Continuing Professional Development), Kate guided me through twelve sessions of hypnoanalysis, therefore giving me first hand experience of her as a practitioner.
Kate has the ability to work insightfully and intuitively, a rare quality, whilst enabling the client to work at their own pace through impasses (feeling stuck) towards positive outcomes. Kate's insight gives her an advantage, underpinning her ability to work effectively within the helping profession. I'm now based in Cornwall however, Kate still remains a close trusted member of my support circle and we meet frequently both in the Midlands and SouthWest.'
'I have had six amazing sessions with Kate Banton for weight loss. Kate is very caring and thoughtful, with a very easy to follow voice, which helped me get into relaxation. She has helped me to remove negative thoughts towards food and helped me change to realistic, healthy positive ones. She also helped me with stress and anxiety towards food. What I've gained is that I'm more relaxed around food now, I now think before I choose what to eat, I also stop eating when I'm full. Best of all my clothes are feeling looser and I feel more confident in myself. Kate also made me a CD for aftercare, which I'm finding is keeping me positive and on track. This is the first time i've tried this type of treatment with a hypnotherapist/counsellor and I would recommend it, as it is tailored to each persons individual needs.'
