Carl Willis GQHP BA MSc
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.

Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help 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 nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
- Behavioural therapy
- Cognitive and behavioural therapies
- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
- Cognitive therapy
- Gestalt therapy
- Humanistic therapies
- Person-centred therapy
- Transactional analysis
As well as being a hypnotherapist, I am an integrative counsellor
This 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 offer a free no-obligation telephone consultation, so please get in touch.
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.
