Georgina McKinnon - Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy, Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Coaching, Psychotherapy and Relationship Counselling in Kent and Medway
Am I properly qualified and trained? Yes I am!
I attended classroom training at The Kent Institute of Clinical Hypnosis, based at Benenden Hospital Trust. My training was under the supervision of the course founder leading international therapist and educator Terence Watts. Terence is the author of many best selling publications including Warriors Settlers and Nomads' his books are seen as important industry standard publications.
Terence Watts invited me to join him at The Essex Institute from January 2010 to assist him in teaching his training course. Today I have my own award winning training school for Hypnotherapy training and Psychotherapy in Kent based at the MidKent College, Gillingham, Kent where I enjoy helping train those people just coming into the industry.
I have also become at the invitation of the institute an examiner for the Essex Institute Examination Board. I am a clinical supervisor and enjoy offering supervision and help to other Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists.
I was honoured to be nominated for a National and International award for 'Student of the Year' at the end of my training.
In October 2014 in London, I was awarded the coveted National and International award for 'Hypnotherapist of the Year' from the Chairman of the Association for Professional Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists.

I have been appointed by the APHP to sit as their representative on the Executive Commitee UKCHO (from 2017). The UK Confederation of Hypnotherapy Organisations. UKCHO is an umbrella body for the hypnotherapy profession in the United Kingdom. UKCHO’s mission is to ensure that standards of conduct, ethics and practice within the profession are appropriate for public safety.
I offer supervision and mentoring to graduates of the Kent Insititute of Clinical Hypnosis (KICH). I also offer mentoring to BWRT practitioners. In September 2015 I was honoured to be invited by The Essex Institute of Clinical Hypnosis (EICH) to be one of only 8 Mentors in the UK chosen to offer help to any post graduates of EICH courses, now qualified hypnotherapists/psychotherapists who may need advanced help, advice or assistance.
