Interview with Kitty

QUESTION 01 | 08
How long have you been interested in the field of well-being and are you practising?
Kitty — I have been practising complementary and alternative medicine for over 20 years now and using it since well before that. I use Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, NLP and CT as well as coaching to help people to achieve their targets and pass exams.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Tell us what your discipline can bring to people's lives.
Kitty — A lot of people who have been to me for coaching are doctors training in different specialities who are taking specialist exams to enable them to become members or fellow of a range of societies and colleges. These are crucial for career progression to consultant and many have passed them after coming for coaching.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Could you provide some instant top tips to help us feel good in body and mind?
Kitty — Get enough sleep; make time to focus on thinking of something that makes you happy every day; spend time with friends and family regularly; list all the things that make you unique and that you feel are you positive attributes; keep on trying if you don’t get the result you want the first time, but make sure that you change the way you do things in subsequent attempts.
QUESTION 04 | 08
How would you describe your method as a practitioner?
Kitty — To spend time getting to know the person and being supportive so that I can identify goals for improvement and help to set out steps that are manageable, with clear timeframes and recognisable criteria for success.
QUESTION 05 | 08
With experience, are there things you have learned or unlearned about yourself or others?
Kitty — I learn about myself every time I work with another person because people see the work through their own lens and it is important to stare through that lens regularly to enable you to understand their own perspective.
QUESTION 06 | 08
Do you have a role model, a person who of inspired you?
Kitty — I’ve been inspired by a lot of people in my life but some of the people I admire most are those who retain a sense of humility. I think perhaps Gandhi and Mother Theresa of Calcutta are good role models.
QUESTION 07 | 08
How do you personally relax; what methods work for you?
Kitty — Playing music, going out for a walk or run and taking a warm bath full of bubbles.
QUESTION 08 | 08
Tell us about a memorable lesson. .
Kitty — I was preparing a student for a performance in a musical – Oliver!- and he was learning Where is Love? He was from a background where love had not necessarily been forthcoming in abundance unconditionally, so it was very poignant to hear him sing the song with such conviction.
