About me

Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, or recent trauma?

Hi, I am Carl and I am an EFT practitioner ( tapping practitioner) and Hypnotherapist. I use a combination of Hypnotherapy, EFT, and NLP (neuro linguistic programming) to treat clients with anxiety, trauma, or depression. I use EFT as a way to help clients break through self-limiting beliefs or challenges that keep them from reaching their goals. 

What is EFT?

Emotional Freedom Technique, commonly referred to as EFT, is a tapping technique used as an alternative therapy for mental health conditions. By tapping specific points on the body whilst focusing on the emotional issues you‘re addressing, you will feel relief from psychological pain and stress. If you or someone you love is experiencing intense sadness, hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, or inability to function at work or in school, now is the time to seek help without delay. Working with EFT tapping points can be helpful for everybody during stressful times. EFT tapping technique can be self-administered or done by a trained EFT practitioner. 

I'm here to help you now so you move forward with your life.

My motivation is for my clients to feel self worth, to have self confidence, and to move forward with their lives. Many suffer for a long time before seeking help, GP waiting lists can be long or maybe they don't realise the effectiveness of treatments like EFT or hypnotherapy.

 I am focused on helping individuals to heal, energise, and become aware of their inner strengths. My promise is to be there for you every step of your journey.

Areas of special interest and experience include:

  • Anxiety
  • Smoking cessation
  • Driving test nerves 
  • Fear of flying
  • PTSD
  • Self esteem issues

If you are interested in changing your life for the better and eliminating anxiety and fear for good then please get in touch. I offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation or zoom (if you prefer).

Call on 07380 253063 or send an email.
I will get back to you as soon as I possibly can.

Professional accreditation


Member organisations

The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.

Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH)

The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) was set up to provide information about a modern form of Hypnotherapy and its associated benefits to members of the public. The main aim of the AfSFH is to spread awareness of the benefits of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Its secondary aim is to support Hypnotherapists in their businesses by encouraging good practice and self-care.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Information about health conditions (*)

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Driving test anxiety: Driving test anxiety can be such a nuisance.  I am sorry that you have had to turn to a hypnotist because anxiety is destroying your driving test hopes.  I have had many clients tell me that they felt confident driving for their instructor; in fact they were good, safe drivers and drive perfectly well. However; all this comes apart when its time to take that test! If this is your story then be assured that hypnotherapy for driving test anxiety could help you. A few sessions of hypnotherapy are considerably cheaper than a whole new series of lessons and then a test at the end of them. 

Weight Loss: I used to be overweight and I know how difficult it is to lose weight, but more importantly keep it off! I can honestly say that I tried every diet unsuccessfully. My weight would fluctuate and it was a struggle until I discovered Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. I was able to reverse bad eating habits, and re-tune my mind into making healthier choices automatically. I lost a massive four-and-a-half stone in one year along with regular exercise, and a healthier diet. I am living proof that hypnosis is extremely effective in reaching your weight loss goal.  

Anxiety:  Suffering with anxiety can be very debilitating. It can come on when you least expect it to; it comes in waves, and has peaks, makes you feel nauseous and completely helpless. Nobody should have to go through it, and your quality of life is affected massively. Negative thinking causes anxiety, and this anxiety is stored in what i call a “stress bucket” . When we stockpile too much anxiety in this “stress bucket” it will overflow and cause: Anxiety attacks, depression, and low moods.

Fear of flying
