Who we are
We believe that Hypnosis is a valuable clinical tool and should be delivered by professionals. Many hypnosis Apps and Websites offer "hypnosis" which is not of a professional standard or supported by research*.
HypnosisHelps was founded by Kate Delaney (PhD, Dip. Hyp.) - an experienced clinical hypnotherapist with a background in research. She wanted everyone to have access to professional and affordable hypnosis. Kate is the voice of HypnosisHelps.
In Kate's early 20’s she was taken seriously ill with Lyme Disease. She spent over 5 years completely bed-bound. For a long time it looked like there was little hope of recovery but after receiving treatment in Switzerland, things started to improve. Along the way Kate met a hypnotherapist who started teaching her about the mind. She started using a combination of hypnosis, mediation and mindfulness to aid her rehabilitation. It was the beginning of a 10 year journey which saw her make an almost unprecedented recovery.
After this experience Kate felt it was important to spread the word about hypnosis and the power of the mind. She went on to run a busy hypnotherapy practice and worked with end-of-life patients in hospice care. Kate is an associate member of the British Society for Clinical Hypnosis which is a national professional body whose aim is to promote and assure high standards in the practice of hypnotherapy. Kate holds a Diploma in Hypnotherapy (distinction) and continues to take an active interest in hypnosis research.
Each HypnosisHelps download has been created by Kate in collaboration with experienced hypnotherapists and experts in their field. Only techniques which have been successful in clinical practice are used in our products.
