Hello – I’m Caroline, I have been a qualified nurse for over 25 years and have spent most of my career working in the Hospice setting. I have most recently been working as a Clinical Nurse Specialist and Non- Medical Prescriber, focusing on the individual needs of patients and their families.
I am a fully qualified clinical hypnotherapist, I am fully insured and am on the General Hypnotherapy Register. I am passionate about my work, and will provide you with a professional 1-1 service tailored to meet your personal situation. I aim to help people make positive changes to their lives and wellbeing, using Clinical Hypnotherapy to increase self-confidence, change negative thoughts, and focus clients towards achieving their goals. Hypnosis can help you towards a positive mindset, encouraging you to visualise how you want your life to be.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified as a nurse in 1986 and worked in the NHS hospital setting for 10 years in acute medicine, before moving to work in the area of Palliative care in a local Hospice. Throughout my nursing career I have recognised the importance of considering those in my care as unique individuals who need to be treated holistically.
I recognised the way in which the mind can influence the body and the body can influence the mind, and this eventually led me to train as a Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner.
I completed my Hypnotherapy training with the Central Academy of Clinical Hypnotherapy & NLP in August 2018 and have been practicing both within my work setting and more recently as a private practitioner.
I am able to successfully use clinical Hypnotherapy to help combat many different issues and problems, including anxiety disorders, fears and phobias, exam nerves, social phobia and panic attacks, low self-esteem, anger management, insomnia, fear of flying, fear of the dentist, chronic pain and IBS. I also work with unwanted behaviours, e.g. Smoking cessation, weight management and unhealthy eating habits.
The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
