Carl Willis GQHP reg. BACP BA MSc
Many thanks for taking the time to visit my page. A bit about myself - I am a qualified Hypnotherapist with the GHR and an experienced registered counsellor and supervisor. I have been helping people achieve their aims and goals since 2005.
My first experience of Hypnotherapy was a couple of 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 unheathily. 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 that I wish I had learnt it years ago. 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.
Typical areas I can 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.
As well as being a hypnotherapist, I am also an integrative counsellor - which basically means I use a variety of techniques to help my clients deal with issues they may be experiencing. I can use models such as Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Cognitive Behavioural and Person Centred approaches. I can also integrate MBTI personality assessments and life-coaching if a client requests this. I have worked in different professions and held roles in a number of areas - ranging from adult education, the Priory and the NHS. My previous roles include Senior Lecturer for Counselling, Counselling Course Leader and Course Director for a Counselling, Coaching and Mentoring degree.
I currently work from two practices, Clarity Well-Being Centre which is in the centre of Nuneaton. There is a multi-storey car park within a minute's walk from the centre.
I also work in Coventry City Centre at Park Counselling Practice which is a few minutes walk from Coventry Train Station. There are two hours of free parking on the road.
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 - without any pressure to proceed.
