LONG, Kathleen MD

British Society of Medical and Dental Hypnosis -Scotland, UK (BSMDH-S)


I am a sessional General Practitioner and Cosmetic Practitioner with a small private hypnosis practice in Glasgow. I graduated from Glasgow University with MBChB, later obtaining an MPH.  I am a NLP Master Practitioner and qualified in Myers Briggs Type indicator.

I started using hypnosis in 1982 and I have been involved in teaching and course development with BSMDH-Scotland.

I am currently the President of ESH. I have been Treasurer, Secretary and Academic Secretary of BSMDH-Scotland.  I have also been responsible for running local conferences and the joint conference with BSCAH.

I worked as motivational coach to the Scottish National Netball team in European and World competitions. I used hypnosis to help mental focus and recovery from injury as well as to improve performance.  I have run workshops on communication in education and in the health service and have given workshops/lectures on NLP/ communication in Scotland, Belgium, Sweden, Ukraine, Italy, Germany and England.

My hypnosis work varied and I have worked with PTSD, OCD, Phobias and Stress. I use the ‘toolbox’ of skills I have learned and tailor them to the patient. In General Practice where I have worked most I look for therapy that can work quickly.

I am an executive board member of the British College of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM).
