“I care about your future life”

Emily Kennett


I am a fully qualified hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner and trained at the Surrey institute of clinical hypnotherapy. I am supporting people both online and in person. I have an interest in mindfulness and neuroscience. I’m very fortunate to help people to manage their fear, anxiety and stress so they can lead happier, fulfilling lives.

In addition to hypnotherapy, I offer talking therapy, ongoing support and coaching, as well as having a special interest in helping clients with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS) and Menopause.

Emily Kennett’s journey

My journey is one of transformation, this being the motivation and purpose behind my work; to help people make positive changes and to inspire others. Having suffered with IBS all my life, then becoming unwell with MCAS as an adult, left me very sick for a couple of years. 

Not knowing what to do and who to turn to, I spent a lot of time and money trying to work out what was wrong with me, with some practitioners making me a lot worse or even saying that there was nothing wrong with me and that it was all in my head. I have experienced chronic pain first-hand and on a daily basis. It was debilitating, impacting all areas of my life. At my worst, I was only able to tolerate two foods and even reacting to water. I also had sensitivities to other environmental triggers such as cleaning products, perfume, makeup, toothpaste, pollen, dust, mould and even things like having the heating on in the car were even causing me problems.

All of this left me in constant fear and living with chronic pain was also very draining. Not being able to leave the house, I found myself developing anxiety and depression, which affected my self-esteem and confidence and made me feel very unsafe. My body was on constant high alert and reacting to everything.

After doing lots of research, which is hard when there’s not a lot of information out there, and trying lots of different treatments, some good and some terrible, I found a team of people to help me, and once I got the right support I started to recover.

Unfortunately, though, there isn’t a quick fix for MCAS and you won’t just have one person supporting you, you will need a team of people. It’s not an easy condition to deal with, as what works for some doesn’t necessarily work for others, but with the right help and the right tests it is possible to get your life back.    

I was fortunate to have Dr. Tina Peers as my consultant. With her help, I got the right tests and support and started to slowly improve, but that only got me so far. After being told so many times I needed to work on my brain and calm my nervous system I tried the Gupta Programme, but for me, it just didn’t help. Trying to put in all the work when I was really unwell wasn’t possible, I also couldn’t visualise myself being well. I just couldn’t see myself getting out of this hole. If you would like to read more about my journey read my blog post “Do I have MCAS?”

I started watching Joe Dispenza and Marisa Peer and it started to make me realise how retraining your mind was a massive part of the healing process. This then brought me to hypnotherapy, which helped me by learning relaxation techniques, mindfulness, guided visualisations, how to pace myself, how to get a better night’s sleep, to become more comfortable within myself and better manage thought patterns and emotions through therapy.

I was provided with a recording of my sessions, and just listening to this helped me calm my nervous system down, taking me out of fight and flight and giving me time to rest and heal. This empowering sense of control and resilience improved my quality of life and my ability to cope with problems. It made me realise that the way I was dealing with pain was making it worse and that there were many things I could do to help me improve it.
