About me

I am a qualified and accredited Hypnotherapist based at the long established Complementary Health Care Clinic in Norwich, Norfolk. I absolutely love what I do - "helping others to help themselves" & believe that after just a few Hypnotherapy sessions with me you'll be able to enjoy the brighter, happier life you deserve.

If you’d like support to find your own resourcefulness to rid yourself of an unwanted feeling, habit or behaviour, access motivation or learn a new way of being - you may find that I'm exactly the person you're looking for to help you make the positive changes you desire!

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Certificate in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills awarded by a leading UK institute.

I am also a member of the National Hypnotherapy Society’s Accredited Register- the only hypnotherapy body to have its register recognised by the Professional Standards Authority. This ensures I follow a strict code of ethics that can be seen by visiting

I attend Continuous Professional Development courses to keep my skills and knowledge up to date and help you further.

I have Professional Liability Insurance.

I gained a BS (Hons) degree in English Literature with Sociology back in 1996. I loved studying Literature, but it was the Sociology side of things that really piqued my interest! I found it fascinating to discover why and how people behave.Since then, I have worked mainly in training and education - helping people fulfil their potential and achieve their goals. This led to studying for an Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Ad. Dip. PsyC) so I can become more skilled and qualified at helping people help themselves.

Client Testimonials...Don't just take my word for it!

Hypnotherapy was a friends suggestion, given to me 6 months prior to me building up the courage to actually book an appointment! But I'm so glad that I did, as I genuinely felt Carrie has been one of the best therapists to work with. The hypnotherapy itself was incredibly relaxing and I was pleasantly surprised that I was given a recording to take home. I feel that better progress has been made with Carrie over a short stretch of time and she seems to have effortlessly given me the tools and coping methods I was missing. Also thanks to her professional & friendly quick response to my initial booking, up to date emails and flexibility in appointments!

This is something I had thought about for a while but had struggled to find a practitioner I felt comfortable with. Carrie was great from the word go. I felt at ease and able to talk openly about my struggles with food. After our sessions I now feel liberated and food is no longer my enemy its my friend. I can't thank you enough Carrie.

I visited Carrie after suffering from IBS due mainly to stress. I was very sceptical at first as I didn't think that hypnotherapy would help. After having a few sessions with Carrie I have found myself feeling more relaxed and not so uptight about things. I found Carrie to be very approachable and down to earth.and able to make me feel comfortable during a session. I highly recommend Carrie to anyone thinking of using hypnotherapy.

I was in quite a low state of anxiety when I visited Carrie for hypnotherapy. It was nice to be able to describe my feelings and fears to someone outside the family, and I felt more relaxed after the visits. I am now feeling much better and able to deal with situations as they arise. Being able to deal with anxiety is half the battle with the knowledge Carrie has given me.

My friend suggested I should try hypnotherapy. At first I was a little apprehensive as it was unknown to me, but i decided to give it a go. I chose to focus on my confidence as I had always been a shy, quiet person, and I had an important event coming up and I wanted to be able to feel more confident to socialise. I had 4 really good sessions where I came away feeling relaxed and calmed, and I went to the event with a completely different mindset and it was great. I feel more confident in myself than i have in a long time. I would highly recommend it.

I had hypnotherapy to try and lose some weight. My goal was a realistic 1lb a week. I am so glad I tried this. After four weeks I lost four pounds! It's all about how your relationship with food can be changed and the way you think. Thanks so much for the amazing help and positivity, and teaching me a different way to think about what I eat and to enjoy food. I would recommend Carrie to anyone - stop denying yourself and enjoy your food! It's an amazing way to relax and concentrate on yourself.

Carrie is absolutely wonderful!
I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone and I already have recommended her to so many people. If you're thinking about it, don't think anymore, just do it, you won't regret it!

Carrie has really helped me.  I have felt more confident since I have been having the hypnotherapy sessions with her and feel I am learning to be more assertive in my day to day life.  I can’t thank her enough and would definitely recommend hypnotherapy to anyone, it has made a real difference to my life.
