About Kate

Dr. Kate Beaven-Marks EdD

Hypnosis is incredibly versatile and I find it fascinating how you can use it in many applications for goal achievement, anxiety reduction, habit alteration and even simply the enhancement of well-being, enjoyment and entertainment, or just having fun...

Approachable, friendly and open-minded, I work with people from all backgrounds to enable them to work towards positive outcomes using hypnosis, NLP and various other therapeutic interventions .
