About me

Hi, my name is Caroline,

I am a local Hypnotherapist, EMDR and NLP Practitioner and Personal Development Coach. I work with people to help them gain back control over their lives.  Covering a wide range of issues ranging from fear of flying, dogs, failure, being unlovable,  to procrastination, anxiety, problems with food, alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, confidence or performance.   I truly love to help people overcome the issues that have held them back and see my clients  blossom into the happy, healthy version of themselves where they take back control of their lives.


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 stress, low mood, depression and anxiety, so that you can feel free and in control of your life.

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


Maybe you would like to become more focussed and motivated to achieve your goals around Weight, Health or Fitness.


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


Maybe you would like to gain more confidence to achieve personal or professional goals.


Maybe you would like to overcome destructive behaviours and habits around smoking, alcohol, food.

Together, we can take away the triggers for fear, anger and unhelpful thoughts. We can change negative coping mechanisms and instead replace them with positive, healthier ways of thinking and being.


I can also help you to let go of negative feelings associated with past traumas and upsetting experiences. Events in the past which may be affecting your confidence, self-esteem and are keeping you stuck emotionally and ability to move forward.

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


Positive change can take effect from session 1. On average clients take 3-5 sessions. It will depend on your needs as everybody is different.


Most therapies can be offered by video link using Whatsapp, Messenger or Facetime.

Further information


"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".  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!” Beauty 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 Adviser, Warwickshire.

”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.”
