Breaking unwanted habits

“I’m pleased to report my hypno sessions with Caroline (three in total) have been successful so far, and I see no reason for that to change. Caroline was welcoming and explained how each session would proceed. She was skilful at putting me at ease, and used imagery that I could relate to and had no issue envisioning. Her voice is calm and relaxing. After the second session I became a non-nail biter! I was slightly sceptical at the time but the proof is in my hands, which I’m no longer ashamed to show.” (JL)

Coaching for career change

“Caroline’s coaching was invaluable in helping me to move on after a difficult redundancy, and to build the motivation and resources I needed to begin a new career path. She supported me in exploring my options and new possibilities, and in translating my vague ideas into plans, actions and results. Her coaching style is warm and encouraging while practical and down to earth, and definitely kept me focused on the positive aspects of the situation, as well as helping rebuild my confidence. I benefitted enormously from my coaching sessions with Caroline and absolutely recommend her without hesitation.” (LM)

Improving self-confidence

“I came to hypnotherapy fresh and curious about what it could offer. I was recently diagnosed with Adult ADHD and have experienced associated problems with low mood and procrastination. The sessions were deeply relaxing and Caroline’s approach was warm, considered and incisive. It was a really good experience and not a pocket watch in sight!” (AT)

Managing chronic pain

“I had three sessions of hypnotherapy with Caroline to help reduce my chronic pain. My first session began with a thorough consultation where Caroline took the time to understand the issues I was facing. As I am familiar with meditation and mindfulness I thought I knew what hypnosis would be like but I was very pleasantly surprised. Caroline guided me into a deeply relaxed trance like state – I felt very peaceful and even euphoric at times! After my first session I felt more alert and awake despite having a broken sleep the night before.

During my next two sessions, Caroline really focused on the key issues I was facing, and used the information I had given her in my consultation to tailor hypnotherapy to my specific needs. Caroline used a variety of techniques including visualisation, which I found very easy to imagine. After each session I noticed an improvement in my pain levels and deep sense of relaxation. The hypnotherapy I had with Caroline has helped me to relax, find peace and better manage my symptoms. I would certainly recommend Caroline to anyone thinking about hypnotherapy.” (EH)

Making major life changes

“I approached Caroline with some caution initially as I’m sure many people do when first engaging with a hypnotherapist. I originally came to her simply to reduce my alcohol intake as I knew this was affecting various aspects of my life. Since then, I haven’t had a single urge to drink alcohol, especially when in social environments when I thought I might struggle the most.

I was so delighted with the results that Caroline and I achieved through our first session that I now have sessions with her on a regular basis. Since starting just a few months ago I have quit alcohol, gained a huge amount of productivity, started to realise my potential again, and have even started a new business! None of this would have happened were it not for Caroline and her accessible, friendly and professional work.” (LC)

overcoming insomnia

“I’ve suffered from insomnia for at least 20-25 years. We did three sessions together, and I can now have a few more hours sleep. I also find it a lot easier to go back to sleep and stay asleep now, so I really have to thank Caroline for the wonderful work that’s she’s done, and I do recommend her to anyone who is having problems with insomnia or anything else because I think the way she does it is very relaxing. I recommend her highly to anyone who’d like to give it a try for their problems.” (NA)

Hypnotherapy in pregnancy

Caroline tailored an audio session for me when I was expecting my first child and was very nervous about the birthing experience. She came up with a brilliant programme that I listened to repeatedly, which involved calming breathing techniques, visualisation and positive affirmations. I can’t speak highly enough of how it helped my nerves. As I got closer to my due date it became apparent a c-section would be safest. On the morning I was booked in I found myself petrified. I listened to Caroline’s audio and it literally rescued me from a blind panic. The breathing techniques and visualisation helped bring me to a relaxed state where I felt able to get in the car and go to the hospital, then carried me through to theatre and ultimately to meeting our darling daughter. I truly don’t know what I would have done without Caroline’s audio hypnotherapy. I can’t recommend Caroline highly enough and am truly grateful for her confident reassuring techniques.” (MM)

helping exam performance

“The session led to a really calm, positive and confident state of mind at a very high-stress time, and contributed both to C overcoming her mental blocks in the sports trials, and to her success in the highly competitive Art Scholarship exam and interview. She performed better than ever – won her sprint, and was even happy with the cross country and swim which were her big worries. Her frame of mind all week has been so incredibly positive and confident (without being overexcited or hyper), and one very welcome side effect has been that she has slept extraordinarily well! She usually has terrible trouble settling and a week like this would normally mean she’d be worse than usual, but she’s been doing the visualisations at bedtime and drifting straight off – unheard of!” (SR, C’s mum)

“I found the hypnotherapy really relaxing and great – it really helped me achieve my goals and when I practised it it helped even more. I’d say it’s a mix between meditation and hypnotism which is really good and relaxing!” (C, aged 11)
