About me

Hi, I'm Carl, a qualified Hypnotherapist and Counsellor who has been successfully helping people achieve their aims and goals since 2005.

You can expect a tailored approach which has been beneficial to many of my previous clients. So if you are feeling weighed down by issues, take the first step.

Areas I tend to work with are to help people quit smoking, and also helping people with anxiety, stress, fear of flying (and other phobias), panic attacks, building self-esteem, self-confidence, anger, weight loss and relationship issues.

I offer a free telephone consultation, so do feel free to contact me and I can provide you with more information over the phone, to give you more of an idea with no pressure to proceed. I can also integrate MBTI personality assessments and life-coaching if a client requests this.

Further information


I currently work online, and when possible, I work from two practices. One in the centre of Nuneaton where there is a multi-storey car park within a minute's walk from the centre.  The second is in Coventry City Centre at Park Counselling Practice which is a few minutes walk from Coventry Train Station, and there are two hours of free parking on the road.

My first experience of Hypnotherapy:

My first experience of Hypnotherapy was a few years ago when I wanted to lose weight and eat healthily, I had a real mental block. My hypnotherapist at the time helped me with some of the triggers which caused me to eat unhealthily. Eventually out of curiosity, I attended my first hypnotherapy course.  One of the most useful skills I have ever learnt was self-hypnosis whereby you can put your own positive instructions into the subconscious. This is such a simple but powerful tool and I have been using self-hypnosis for 15 years.  Hypnotherapy has helped me personally with healthy eating, stress, presentation skills, self-reliance, sleeping problems, and general well-being.

Although I was first nervous the first time I went to see a hypnotherapist,  I quickly realised that under hypnosis that the client is in control and that they won't be made to do silly things.  Stage hypnosis and Clinical Hypnosis are very different and a Clinical Hypnotherapist cannot make the client do anything that they do not want to do.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

My availability generally is out of office hours, evenings and weekends. Sundays also available.
