WHO I AM, WHAT I DO AND WHY I DO IT
Kirsty Wick - Psychodynamic Hypnotherapist and Tutor
I’ve spent my life either in therapy, studying therapy or being a Therapist - I’ve made a lifelong commitment to understanding the human psyche and how to resolve all blocks, fear, trauma and emotional issues.
My mission has its roots in my own extremely abusive childhood. It’s a miracle that I survived to adulthood.
Psychodynamic Hypnotherapy allowed me to heal my trauma and not only survive but thrive; study intensively, run a busy practice, work with amazing clients and have a family and life I love.
This is why I’m so passionate about these therapeutic techniques and also why I am able to help others heal as I did.
I have seen the darkest side of humanity, but it’s enabled me to truly appreciate the opposite - where there is more light, more beauty and more love than you dreamed possible.
No matter what you’ve experienced (and no matter how tiny or huge you feel it is) I can help you through it gently and safely. Not just because of my experience and training, but because I’ve successfully gone through this process myself.
I personally tried every alternative therapy in existence, as many of my clients have as well, but Psycho-dynamic Hypnotherapy was the only thing that had the depth and effectiveness to truly help me release the past in a safe and lasting way.
As a member of both the GHC and ACCPH and in accordance with professional standards I receive regular professional supervision. What this means for clients is that I’m able to focus on 100% on your issues and constantly reflect on and develop my practice - as all good Therapists should!

WHAT CLIENTS SAY
"I found my sessions with Kirsty insightful. With her guidance I worked through forgotten memories and feelings, unlocking my long held fear of failing, panic and generally not being good enough. Now I am no longer being held back by unresolved feelings of the younger me, I can look and deal with life with ‘grown up’ resolve and peace. I have calm and understanding."
CS, August 2018
"Kirsty has such deep empathy, warmth and a capacity to provide gentle accompaniment. She is completely authentic and unpretentiousness. I so appreciated and benefited from her generosity of spirit and the relaxed vibe she created."
NB, March 2017
"Kirsty provided a reflective and safe space where I could work through some very personal issues and gained some huge insights into my own emotional reactions. Basically; ‘Sorting my shit out, so it no longer bites my on my a@@' . - Apologies for crudeness :)
Kirsty's strength is her ability to help clients safely navigate the emotional turmoil they are trying to work through, with a compassionate and caring connection to the person without making it too invasive or unsafe."

BACKGROUND AND QUALIFICATIONS
I have degrees and qualifications coming out of my ears, which includes several diplomas and a degree (RN Child, BA, Dip AHP, Advanced Dip Dip AEOS, Cert HB).
I have trained extensively with Jacquelyne Morison, the acclaimed and pioneering Therapist, Author and Course Director at her accredited School for Hypnotherapy. I have been teaching part-time at the school since 2016 and since September 2018 I have been the Principal Tutor on the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma Course in Wiltshire.
I am a lifelong student and study continuously (and always will!) across a wide range of fields including psychotherapy, trauma resolution, esoteric healing modalities including shamanic healing, energy healing and consciousness. All of which also inform my work.
I previously enjoyed a successful career, over many years, as a Paediatric Nurse and Complementary Therapist. I am able to draw upon a wide range of methodology, having also studied Clinical Aromatherapy at diploma level.
