About me

Hi, my name is Caroline,

As a local Hypnotherapist, EMDR and NLP Practitioner and Coach, I work with clients to help them become the person they really want to be, live the life they truly want for themselves and  realise their true potential.  We work together on all levels, subconscious and conscious to achieve your goals.  These goals can be personal, professional, or sport related.

We  work together to help you to take back control of your life and release any unwanted habits, negative beliefs and patterns of behaviour that have developed over time.  Once all this has been removed, we can  access the joy that has been missing to help you to re-gain your zest for life again!

Specialising in anxiety and the fears which are often the result of upsetting events in life from childhood upwards, together we work to find the real you who is capable of being focussed, confident and happy.  

Some of the typical unwanted behaviours range from using food, alcohol, drugs and cigarettes.  These habits can be changed. 

In addition to fears relating to flying, heights, dogs or illness; the more common fears are those people carry with them from the past and which can affect their lives, anxiety levels and opportunities for happiness.  These range from a fear of failure, fear of not being enough, fear of being unlovable, or of being an 'imposter'.   All these fears hold people back from finding confidence, love, success and happiness. 

I truly love to help people overcome the issues that have held them back in the past and to see my clients  blossom into the happy, healthy, confident version of themselves as they take back control of their lives.

HOW HYPNOTHERAPY CAN HELP:

Congratulations in taking the first step on your path to self-improvement and a more satisfying life. In working with me as your therapist, together we can overcome the obstacles of old habits and self limiting beliefs that have held you back in the past. In just a few sessions I can help you with anxiety, stress, and low mood.  You have the power within you to feel free of anxiety and fear and to take back control of your life and happiness.

Unlike traditional talking therapies, in just a few sessions, I can help you to gain control over the fears, habits, addictions, negative beliefs or phobias which have stopped you reaching your goals in the past.

ANXIETY:

Anxiety can be crippling and rip the pleasure out of life.  We will work together to change the thoughts, beliefs and emotions which keep us in the grip of anxiety and self doubt.  Together we will bring out your fun, happy, confident self so that you are free to enjoy life again and achieve your goals.

WEIGHT:

Maybe you would like to become more focussed and motivated to achieve your goals around weight, health or fitness.

SMOKING:

Perhaps over the years, you have developed a smoking habit that you are now ready to kick.

CONFIDENCE:

Perhaps you would like to gain more confidence to achieve personal or professional goals.  Removing self doubt and accessing your true talent without 'holding yourself back' is key to success.

ADDICTIONS:

Maybe you would like to overcome destructive behaviours and habits developed around  alcohol or food.

TRAUMA AND LOSS:

Letting go of negative feelings and beliefs associated with past traumas and upsetting experiences is key. Events from the past which may be affecting your confidence, self-esteem and are keeping you emotionally stuck. 

We will work together to let go of the past and install healthier, positive beliefs and emotions, giving you the tools and ability to move forward with your life.

You can move towards confidence, freedom, love, achievement and joy.

HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?

Positive change can take effect from Session 1. On average clients take 3-5 sessions. It will depend on your needs.  Everybody is different but you will know when you feel ready to reduce or move forward without further sessions.

SESSIONS

Most sessions will include a mixture of NLP Techniques, Hypnosis with EMDR and Coaching.  The Time To Shine Therapy room is in Leamington Spa, although some sessions could be offered in Banbury.

EXPERIENCE AND TESTIMONIALS:

  • "I cannot express enough gratitude for the incredible support and guidance i have received from Caroline.  Her compassionate nature and unwavering dedication to my wellbeing have been nothing short of transformative".  Business Owner, Warwickshire.

    "Thank you Caroline.  I feel great after my session on Saturday.  As a professional sportswoman, my hypnotherapy sessions have boosted by confidence and self belief immeasurable.  They also give me a personal feeling of wellbeing and calmness which is so satisfying in everyday life.  I really look forward to our next session!"  Professional Sportswoman, Oxfordshire.

    "Through Caroline's expertise, I have learned to navigate life's challenges with a new found sense of clarity and resilience.  Each session feels like a safe haven where I can openly explore my thoughts and emotions without judgment.  Caroline's empathetic listening and insightful feedback have empowered me to unearth my inner strength and embrace personal growth.  I am profoundly thankful for her presence in my journey towards healing and self discovery.  In her capable hands I have found solace, hope and the courage to embrace life's journey wholeheartedly.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being an invaluable beacon of light on my path to wholeness'.  Accountant, Warwickshire.

    "Caroline is amazing, there are no other words.  I had found myself stuck in unhealthy habits and deep rooted negative beliefs about myself.  After my first session my world has changed. I'm doing things without fear, pushing my own boundaries and it is so exciting that my mindset has completely changed.  I'm so excited about the future.  I would highly recommend Caroline if you are stuck and need a way forward".  H.R. Director, Warwickshire.

    "I was out of control with my eating and needed to do something about it.  Immediately after my first session I did not want to eat biscuits, chocolates or sweets (my binge buddies!).  With her calm voice and intuitive listening, my appetite reduced and I have sought healthier options.  I have not denied myself any normal foods, but with the tools Caroline gave me, I have lost inches and kilos.  Without Caroline's help I was self sabotaging, but now I am in control, feeling fitter, healthier and more confident.  Thank You Caroline".  Beauty Therapist and Business Owner, Oxfordshire.

    ”Caroline has helped me manage my anxious feelings and to become more assertive in certain aspects of my life. I have managed to control my troubles with excessive worry and increase my confidence. Our sessions make me a stronger person each time. Caroline is very patient and an empathetic listener. I can recommend her highly.” Nurse, Northamptonshire

    ”I haven’t snacked between meals or even wanted anything sweet since our first weight management session!” Therapist, Oxfordshire

    “Before I had my first hypnotherapy session with Caroline I was often stressed and in constant pain. By the time my session ended I felt refreshed, revitalised and the stress seemed to have melted away. My pain had also eased significantly. Caroline has the most soothing and comforting presence about her. Thank you so much, you are one in a million.” Nurse, Queensland

    ”I really appreciated Caroline’s calmness and compassion and really felt she went the extra mile to put me at ease and make the changes I wanted. Within minutes I felt much calmer and experienced a profound change in my perspective. I was able to let go of the emotions stemming from a situation that happened many years ago, but was still affecting me. Since my session, I have felt much calmer and more confident and comfortable with myself. I was not expecting such a positive outcome. Thank You Caroline.” PR & CommunicationsConsultant, West Midlands.

    ”I met with Caroline for Hypnotherapy to help me to let go of an ambition which was no longer serving me; that of becoming the CEO of a large corporation. Having decided instead to become a self employed entrepreneur, despite my best efforts, I was becoming overwhelmed at the feeling of loss. I had even become tearful when talking about the corporate life and the ambition I was walking away from. Caroline did a relaxation session which cleared my mind and relaxed my body prior to the hypnotherapy session. I felt extremely calm and in safe hands. The session itself brought up old emotions but was quickly feelings of peace and joy. Bringing the awareness of the subconscious to my conscious mind helped me to deal with the situation by understanding that I was holding onto old beliefs that no longer served me. Since the session I have had moments of questioning myself in giving up my old corporate ambition, but rather than becoming overwhelmed, this feeling is now replaced by positive thoughts of my new self employed life. I would highly recommend Caroline.”
