Is anxiety stopping you from living your best life?

Do you feel overwhelmed by anxiety, or believe that you will never truly be free of it?

While a moderate amount of anxiety is a normal feeling, intense and frequent anxiety can be a frightening, isolating, and frustrating experience. It can take a huge toll on your emotional, physical, and psychological well-being.


Imagine what it would be like to be able to reduce anxiety symptoms, overcome your fears, and discover the emotional freedom to live the life you really want.


Hypnotherapy provides a safe, non-invasive, and rapid way to treat anxiety, and is particularly suitable to help people with anxiety disorders as it helps to reset emotional balance due to the deep relaxation it provides.


The difference in the way that New Leaf Hypnotherapy & Counselling approaches anxiety is that we guide you in interrupting an anxious response, while also providing you with skills and strategies to use in real-life situations. By changing your mindset through hypnosis, you can transform and strengthen your mind to work with you, rather than against you, without the limitations of extreme anxiety.

New Leaf Hypnotherapy & Counselling offers specialised services for clients with anxiety and anxiety disorders such as:

Generalised Anxiety Disorder

Social Anxiety

Panic Disorder 


Health Anxiety

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

My name is Ruth Kennedy, and I am a Professional Hypnotherapist with a deep understanding of physical and mental health.  Along with a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Applied Psychotherapy, I hold qualifications in Nursing, Applied Psychology, Science, Counselling, and I am currently studying for a Nutrition Degree. I am certified in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Reiki, and Australian Bush Flower Essences.

As a Professional Hypnotherapist and Counsellor, I support and guide clients through their personal anxiety recovery journey. Unlike most other script approach hypnotherapists, I specifically tailor each and every session just for you. I take the time to find out exactly what is happening in your life, and then we work together to set goals for your session, and to provide you with the results that you need. 

I understand how daunting it may be to reach out for help. I know the feeling of overwhelm and hopelessness whilst experiencing anxiety because I have lived it.


As someone who has experienced anxiety in the past and overcome it, I have developed profound insights into the power of the mind, and a firm appreciation for the effectiveness of Hypnotherapy.


When you want to experience change quickly, I can help you, even if you have tried therapy in the past and felt it has  been unsuccessful. I am passionate about helping my clients live their best life possible.
