Carolyn is a hypnotherapist and psychotherapist who also works with anyone suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder or the effects of a trauma, long term mental illness, phobias and anxiety.
I teach my clients how to uses self-hypnosis and relaxation techniques as a continuous way of maintaining a positive outlook and skills to help you deal with future worries or concerns after therapy or counselling has ended.
I have a vast experience in working with people who have long term and enduring mental health problems and work hard to make sure I am any new developments in these areas. Linking in where needed to other professional organisations where this is more helpful for the people who come to for advice or help
I specialise in working with anyone suffering from the effects of a trauma or have a diagnosis of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. This would include any problems that are related to distress following an accident or have re occurring thoughts and images of a traumatic or upsetting event. I am a certified coach and an A1 assessor
Because of this I am able to provide support and advice across a range worries and anxieties.
I also work as on line counsellor and provide face to face counselling for other organisations as well as in my private practice.
My work here involves short term and long term help from answering your questions to longer regular sessions depending on what you are looking for or need.
As a Hypnotherapist I became one of the first in the country to achieve a new national standard of excellence for my therapy, and registered by the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the UK regulator for complementary healthcare.

Also in my previous work I have trained staff teams and managed large and small teams of support staff, and alongside carers and families since 1987 I completed my Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy in May 2007.

I am qualified in Age Regression Therapy for uncovering blockages, healing and acceptance. (This is sometimes referred to Inner Child or Mnemodynamic Therapy.)
Because it is good to have a number of tools and ways of working I trained to use CBT which can be very helpful in identifying with you, some of the reasons that may be stopping you moving forward in your life, and to help you identify any unhelpful behaviours or thoughts. The first stage is beginning to understand.
My therapy is always based on the needs of my clients and I work in an integrated and holistic way to make sure that I can provide a service which is individual to you.
