Further information


Carols ability and guidance to help me understand the dynamics of three diverse situations was incredible. The resulting therapies were all different and highly effective. She helped me cope with my divorce, which had left a legacy of depression, lack of self-esteem and intrusive thoughts. A short session of IEMT, tapping and hypnosis allowed me to move on in a very positive way and constructive way. I then had hypno-coaching to help unleash my A game for a career move. We developed a very strong strategy. She gave me powerful tools and techniques and rehearsed the interview. Result? I smashed it! Got the upgrade to Head of International Sales. One session moved my career to a higher level with a 50% salary increase! Hypnosis followed for stress management which included a bespoke recording I still listen to. Carol is fabulous, she has the skills and width of experience to help pretty much anyone with anything, simply amazing! PB, Head of International Sales

I cannot rate Carol highly enough nor put into words how much she helped me to change my life.  The secret addiction to the bottle of wine at the end of the day had taken over my life. With Carol’s help I walked away from the wine and got my life back.  Carol made the whole process so easy and painless, while also being fun and interesting.  I learned a lot about myself and now feel a completely new person. Take that step and contact her - it is so worth it. GS

When I met Carol I knew she was special. I had been carrying a lot of past baggage which affected my ability to function. I was desperate and didn't believe anyone could change the way I was. However, after one session I left feeling a lifetime of anxiety had been lifted, I was free from stress, worry and self-doubt. I felt positive about my future, my life and I can't explain how happy I felt. I got home and realised my face hurt... I had been smiling all the way home which hadn't happened for years! Four days after that first session, I got an interview and landed a new job. If there are such things as Guardian Angels, Carol is definitely mine! Thank you! Karen

I had suffered with serious digestive problems and IBS for a year after coming off a long term antacid drug. My whole life was affected by my inability to even socialise at times. I was not confident Carol could help because I had intensively researched information and applied every aspect to my problems without success. After one session and within two days I was much better and within a week, I was in a whole different place. Now 1 month on and I can honestly say I am almost normal! I am very comfortable now and all of the misery seems to be behind me. I have a new lease for a life that has always carried a lot of stress, and I am back to my old self, which is very exciting. Carol approaches everything in life with 100% enthusiasm and professionalism. She has the ability to focus and identify key factors, be it emotional or medical. Although thorough with any challenge she sets herself, I think she has found her true talent with this line of work. Don’t sit out there with a problem. Go and see Carol. I would be very surprised if she didn’t make it better.

I was desperate, having suffered from migraines for 20 years. They had worsened over time and lasted 48 hours with severe head pain and constant vomiting. Having tried everything (including acupuncture and other alternative remedies) I hoped that Carol might be able to 'change my mind' about my migraines. I've had only one, very minor, migraine since the session with only very mild discomfort and no vomiting, which is nothing short of miraculous! I highly recommend Carol as a therapist. She put me at my ease as soon as I arrived and the session was not only fascinating and informative but fun. Catherine

The breakup of my marriage and loss of a job left me 'spineless. I had lost 'me'! Alone with a 3 year old I resorted to comfort eating. My self-esteem and self-worth hit rock bottom. I was existing, not living. With Carol’s help I am now a confident, happy, successful woman. I've lost weight, gained confidence and have 'me' back. Carol explained my overeating was linked to my emotions. She helped me understand my issues, and gave me solutions to these problems. With her help I worked towards planned goals. The hypnosis helped me become more positive and changed my whole outlook on life. Carol was also available for support in between sessions. I am back to me, and off anti-depressants. I have a new and better job, and a new loving relationship. I recommend Carol to anyone who feels that they are not achieving their full potential in life. Les x

Carol Barwick has changed my life. I had gone through a year of total agony, that led to extremely invasive surgery, and I was just depressed and beaten by the pain every day. Now we're working together to make that manageable. She has helped to make the pain endurable, helped keep my head above water, and deal with my day to day life, my sleep, my eating, my happiness. It's amazing what she has done for me. She equipped me with loads of techniques to help me between sessions, and her passion for them is contagious!. One of the most amazing things that carol has done with me, is hypnosis down the phone!!! My pain is sporadic. One day, I left work because it was so bad, and the only person I felt I could turn to was Carol. She dropped everything and just helped me. It was amazing, I couldn't believe it, but she was able to do that over the phone. Thank you Carol. I can't express enough how much I appreciate everything you've done for me. Jack

I suffered a severe leg break 2years ago which, coupled with stress at work, left me with agoraphobia, unable to leave the house on my own, or even move at work unaided. Daily panic attacks and living with the need to be constantly supported affected my life. I went from being confident to living in a cycle of terror. I found Carol online and as soon as we met I knew therapy with her would be successful. Her unwavering positivity and belief that we could together overcome my dreadful situation, which had ruined my life for years, had a profound effect before we’d begun the treatment. She taught me the answers were within and gave me techniques to unlock the part of my mind that was holding me back. Carol is a consummate professional who tailors therapies to your needs, she’s a wonderfully warm, caring person with a genuine desire to improve the quality of life of her clients. I haven’t had a panic attack since my second session and look forward to going out alone.  My desire and ability to do more increases daily, as does my confidence and self-worth. I have a way to go until I’m where I was before agoraphobia stole my life, but I know that with her support and my input I will succeed. Anyone with a phobia should visit this wonderful lady and give her the chance to weave her particular brand of magic. Maggie Cross

After years of insomnia,  I decided, on recommendation, to approach Carol Barwick for help. The sessions were extremely helpful.  She approached my problem from all angles - suggesting a combination of tools, relaxation techniques and practical advice.  She re-tuned my chaotic sleeping pattern into a new settled routine of peaceful nights where I wake refreshed.  I thought I knew everything about how to combat insomnia, clearly, I didn't. She worked on my personal and individual needs and this powerful combination of suggested adjustments worked brilliantly to get me back on track. Pauline Ralph
