INFORMATION UPDATE 2016
Where Am I?
I see clients at Carrie Swain Health Beauty and Footcare in the Anlaby Common area of Hull. I run a busy hypnotherapy and reiki practice seeing clients from as far afield as Driffield, Beverley, Pocklington, Hedon, Barton and Hornsea. I also offer Skype sessions. My clients are aged from 7-80+.
What do I do?
I love my job as no two days are the same and I get to meet some really interesting people who come to me with a problem with which they need support. I have immense respect for anyone who takes that first daunting step and asks for help; for some clients the change which has come about by the end of the programme is truly life changing.
eg imagine being so terrified of medical procedures that you avoid doctors, dentists and any form of medical intervention for decades - or being so distraught at the idea of flying that simply talking about it fills you with terror and you start to hope something bad will happen so that the holiday is cancelled...
Hypnotherapy is a fantastic tool to overcome these fears, phobias and negative thought patterns.
My background in education means that I am uniquely placed to support both teachers and students re stress and exam performance. I see clients privately for this but also work with individuals and groups in educational establishments.
Special interests and skills
I am also a Virtual Gastric Band weight management specialist. Using a proven method supported by clinical trials this is most definitely not a diet - this programme is based around 3 meals a day and creates a healthy relationship with food and exercise.
Just to give you some idea of the broad range of clients I have seen in the last year:
- fears and phobias - spiders, flying, claustrophobia,needles, dentists, snakes, lifts...
- white coat hypertension
- driving test anxiety
- food related issues - poor or restricted food choices, over eating, sugar addiction...
- water intake ie staying hydrated
- anxiety, stress And confidence
- nail biting
- alcohol related issues
- public speaking
- exam preparation
- weight management
- pain memory
- work stress

Not sure if hypnotherapy can help? Please get in touch. Come for an informal chat over a cup of coffee; if I don't think I can help then I will suggest other therapies/ therapists.
Training, qualifications & experience
For ladies of a certain age I offer 2 programmes:
"Sparkle!" a 4 session package designed to help you refocus, regain self confidence and rediscover your va-va-voom.
"Menopause Me: Sleeping with one leg out of bed" is a 4 session programme dealing with the physical challenges of the menopause such as hot flushes.
My initial training was with the Innervisions School of Hypnotherapy nine years ago. Since then I have completed training in the Virtual Gastric Band weight management programme, Coping with Stress, Hypnotherapy in the Workplace and the Education Performance Practitioner course.
With a background in education and having taught in local senior schools for over 30 years, my knowledge and experience makes me the perfect choice for both work in schools re exam performance, work with staff for relaxation and stress-related issues, and also for mature students who feel out of touch with modern ways of learning.
How does this make me different to others offering exam performance programmes?
If you are a mature student struggling with new ways of working I will put together a course for you which has both hypnotherapy and study skills combined. At the end of the hypnotherapy session we will go on to look at specific tasks or learning skills eg chunking. skimming and scanning. how to answer questions on a text, select relevant information, structure a written response etc and timing.
Ongoing training and commitment
Fully insured, I am a proud member of the General Hypnotherapy Register and am bound by their code of ethics. I am committed to constantly updating my skills and knowledge to offer the best level of service to my clients eg I completed a 12 month business course, have completed the Educational Performance Practitioner qualification, updated Virtual Gastric Band training and participated in a wide range of online training. In the past year I have completed training in Safeguarding Level 1, Mental Health First Aid.
I am now the first and only Level 2 practitioner in East Yorshire in the Balance Procedure.
This year I have achieved my ambition of becoming a reiki master teacher; I have completed a Level 2 First Aid in the Workplace and most recently I attended a 5 hour training course on the FEAR method of working with anxiety.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
A new 3 session programme for schools, colleges and training establishments and adaptable for individuals.
I am now delighted to offer a 3 session programme designed to help students prepare for exams by using relaxation and concentration methods.
The programme uses simple concentration techniques which allow the individual to take control of their emotional state and remain focused and confident in stressful situations. In much the same way that top sportsmen and women learn focus and are able to visualise themselves achieving success, so can students.
It is quite common for students to latch on to their weakness rather than their talents and strengths and they can become easily discouraged by negative criticism. I help re-engineer this thinking to give students simple coping strategies to reduce anxiety and ultimately perform at their very best.
Teaching is a rewarding but tough and relentless profession; teachers can experience anxiety, depression, poor sleeping habits and immense pressure from colleagues, parents and students alike to perform consistently at 100% whilst working ridiculously long hours. I help teachers to regain control, show them methods for regaining calm and confidence and how to feel more positive.

Free initial consultation
There is no charge for the initial (no obligation) consultation of 20-30 minutes; this can often be in the form of a phone conversation which can save time and is not constrained by office hours.. This will give you the opportunity to see if I am the right hypnotherapist for you, and to discuss how I can help before you decide if you would like to proceed.
Stop smoking and other hypnotherapy packages
Most clients stop smoking in one session of approximately 60-90 minutes but we do offer a complimentary followup session if necessary. You will be expected to smoke your last cigarette the night before your session and undertake not to use nicotine patches, gum or e-cigarettes. Please note that if I do not feel that you are fully committed to becoming a non-smoker then I will not take you on as a client.
All other hypnotherapy is sold in packages rather than individual sessions and tailored to the needs of the individual. Prices on application.
Please also ask me about reiki sessions. Reiki may be booked as stand alone sessions but I sometimes use it alongside hypnotherapy ie during the session, or include a reiki taster session as part of the course of treatment.
if you are curious to experience reiki but do not want to commit to a course of treatment I offer a 30 minute taster session for £25.
The Balance Procedure
This is an amazing energy technique, quite different to any of the other therapies I use. The client does not need to discuss any issues but is taught how to "tune in" their cards so that they may be used on a daily basis.The cost of the session includes a set of cards and supporting handbook.
