Heidi Kyle, Hypnotherapist & Counsellor

Introduce yourself! Please tell us about you and your life, so we can get to know you better.

I am a Counsellor and Hypnotherapist based in the majestic Drakensberg Mountains in South Africa. I am originally from Australia, via England, and it’s amazing to be living, working and thriving in Africa! I am married to a South African, Mark, and have two beautiful children, William and Clementine. We live on a farm and have cows, chickens, four dogs and lots of space – it’s the most beautiful, peaceful place and the mountains emit an energy that’s hard to describe.

I have built a name for myself, primarily through hypnosis, and my clients come from all over the world and often travel to see me. It’s a huge privilege to be able to help people in such a profound way. Can you tell me about the background and history of Heidi Kyle Practice? What inspired you to start this business?

My inspiration started in the corporate world, in investment banking. I saw all these amazing bankers, earning crazy money, and yet they seemed so confused, angry and damaged and not very functional – yet they should have been on top of the world, right? That was an eye opening experience and I realised that happiness could not come from money and possessions – but it is available to everyone, from the inside, not the outside. I have met happier and more stable people in the most poverty stricken parts of Africa than I met in Investment Banking in London.

Wanting to help people, I started a degree in Counselling to career change but the biggest change came in 2012 when I attended a self-hypnosis weekend course with the South African Institute of Hypnotism.

Suddenly I found myself having conversations that were so deep and important, the desire to learn to train in this modality grew in me as many of these hypnosis practitioners were speaking from their subconscious mind and experiencing life and other people in such a meaningful way as a result. Their ability to connect was incredible and I thought, “I want to learn how to do that”.

What services or therapies does Heidi Kyle Practice offer to clients? How do these services benefit individuals seeking help?

I offer many hypnosis techniques such as Regression Therapy, Past Life and Spiritual hypnosis, Hypnobirthing, pain management, smoking cessation, weight loss, fears and phobias, depression and anxiety, stress, coaching, soul journeys. I am so fascinated by hypnosis and its benefits that I can’t stop learning!

I would say that Regression Therapy has been the most beneficial to the most clients – I have literally seen people healing from the most profound childhood trauma as well as serious mental illness diagnosis. Training in Regression Therapy has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done and the most rewarding. You really have to know how to use the techniques and it’s a big responsibility. My job is to do my best to the best of my ability and the change and the feedback from my clients still amazes me. I am in awe of my clients and their bravery and guts to change their lives. How does Heidi Kyle Practice differentiate itself from other similar practices in the area? What unique aspects or approaches do you bring to your clients?

I would say that Regression Therapy is the most unique part of my practice. It’s the part that is the most unusual as not many therapists will train for this and that is why my clients are based all over the world. I am sitting in my beautiful mountain home talking to clients in Australia and Germany and sometimes I have to pinch myself that I get to do this! I always see each client as a true individual and celebrate them and really try to help them to gain inner resources. Many people are so tired and drained when they see me – they literally are at the end of their tether. Its such a great experience to help them to reconnect with their functional, higher self and see them walking out feeling hopeful. Could you share some success stories or testimonials from clients who have benefited from your services? How have you made a positive impact on their lives?

I have so many testimonials. My favourite one came from a weight loss client “wow, therapy on steroids, thank you”. Many of my clients have long histories with therapy and they are really amazed at what can be achieved with correctly applied therapeutic hypnosis. Another favourite is my client who wrote : “I spent ten years trying to get my relationship with my mother into some kind of perspective so I wasn’t expecting much. However, I am healed and it took three sessions. Truly eye-opening stuff.”

What are your qualifications and experience in the field?

I am a member of the South African Association of Counsellors and the South African Institute of Hypnotism as well as the General Hypnosis Council in England. I have worked with hypnosis now for over ten years and counselling for fifteen years and the experience gained is so valuable but I never think I know it all. Learning something new every day is so important and to be open to continuing to learn. I hope I am still learning when I am 101! What is your overall mission and vision for Heidi Kyle Practice? How do you envision the practice evolving and growing in the future?

My overall mission for my practice is so simple since the pandemic. The pandemic has had a huge impact on human society and it’s clarified so much for so many. For myself, my mission is to help humanity to evolve their subconscious mind one individual at a time. To bring the understanding our subconscious mind into our day to day lives and to help people to clear negative emotional programming.

Our world is so damaged right now but it can change in an instant if humanity could wake up sufficiently to see this. To work together, to listen to each other, to have the maturity to know we can disagree but we can still keep talking! That’s my goal – and my dream.

In the future I see my practice evolving to take on more and more group work – such as retreats and large group events all over the world. Reaching more people is more pressing than ever and every day is a challenge to reach out to as many people as possible. Currently, I am working on my first book “Journeys in Hypnosis” which will be published later this year and which I hope will help people understand more about this modality. Tell us about a pivotal moment in your life that brought you to where you are today.

The pivotal moment in my life happened when I was 30 years old. I grew up with an amazing, talented, funny, smart, artistic father – who also had a serious mental illness. I saw his terrible suffering on so many levels, and, as a result, the suffering of my mother and my brothers and sisters. I went through many years of pain and confusion and one day I realised that we have a choice. No matter how limited that choice can feel at times. We have a choice and a chance to change, every day. That’s what my work with clients is all about: choice. You choose. Every day is a new beginning, we just have to choose.

I have an awesome plaque in my office: “Welcome to Today, Another Day, Another Chance, Feel Free to Change”. I love that.
