About me

Hello, my name is Carla Marcos, and as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, I help my clients to use their mind to their advantage so that they can find their unique balance and bring more of what they want into their lives.

I practise Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, which is a modern psychotherapeutic approach based on the latest research in neuroscience and the most effective psychotherapeutic techniques so as to achieve long lasting results in a short space of time. One of the main reasons this therapeutic approach is so effective is that it combines psychotherapy and hypnosis (or 'trance'). Whilst in a trance state our minds relax, and can focus on thoughts and suggestions that can be extremely beneficial for us when we are looking to improve our emotional state and make positive changes in our lives.

Alongside my passion for hypnotherapy, I am also a lawyer and a qualified nurse. Being a nurse, my delivery as a hypnotherapist combines my knowledge of how the mind works with a caring and holistic approach that takes into account the interconnection of the body and mind. This taken together with my lawyer's solution-focused approach, drives my enthusiasm to work with my clients to help them achieve their goals so that they can live their best life. I am also a firm believer that improving a person’s emotional state also helps improve the lives of those around them. I absolutely love to see my clients not only finding their unique balance but also becoming an example of positive change for others; their families, friends, co-workers, and ultimately an inspiration for the wider community.

I am based in Harrogate (North Yorkshire, UK) and I offer online hypnotherapy sessions to clients in the UK and globally via Zoom. I am fully insured, supervised, GDPR compliant and registered with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), DBS checked (enhanced DBS check for working with children and vulnerable adults), and a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH), and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

As well as English, I can also speak Spanish, Catalan, and French. And at the moment, I conduct my sessions in either English or Spanish.

I very much look forward to hearing from you and being able to help.

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice.
