As a menopausal woman, I know just how difficult midlife can be. Hypnotherapy can help with many menopause symptoms, although it isn’t a replacement for medical treatment. I advise all of my clients to discuss how they are feeling with their GP, it’s so important!
In addition to an online hypnotherapy service, I have created a range of very affordable hypnosis audios that can help with symptoms of menopause and their knock-on effects. Each audio is a full-length professional hypnotherapy session containing techniques I've used successfully in my clinical work. These include:
- Anxiety reduction
- Improved self-confidence
- Alcohol moderation
- Hot flush hypnosis
- Lifting a low mood
- Healthy lifestyle motivation

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Information about health conditions (*)
Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.
Feedback is really important to me. Below are some client testimonials:
‘Thanks for your help Carys, I came to you seeking an answer to a problem that I have endured for ten years or more. I take part in a group activity that I help to run, during this activity when I take responsibility for the group, I have to stand before up to 30 people and explain what will happen and what risks are involved during the next few hours. I have always had an aversion to public speaking, I get anxious and nervous the evening before, and also on the way to the venue, this has the unpleasant effect making me incontinent, I saw my G.P who recommended that I give up the activity, this I declined to do and so sought the help of Carys at Oaks Hypnotherapy. We had a long consultation, followed a week later by the first session of hypnotherapy, I found this to be a pleasant experience, and on driving home was aware of being more relaxed than I am normally. Days later I visited my autistic grandson, who because of his condition is hyperactive and repetitive, I have always found it stressful to stay with him for any length of time and get very irritable, but I found that I was calm and relaxed, I was able to interact with him and after two hours was still happy in his company. My wife observed that after a shopping trip how different my behaviour was and how I had no complaints about taking her shopping and how relaxed and easy going I was. Finally, having met with my group on three occasions, I was cool, calm and collected, I fulfilled my duties with calmness and confidence, and no nasty surprises. I would recommend anyone who has a problem with anxiety and nervousness to seek help and ask for a consultation at Oaks Hypnotherapy. Thank you again Carys.’
'After being involved in an air crash in 1999 it has become progressively harder for me to fly. I hoped that by flying every year it would become easier, but the stress and anxiety only got worse. In 2015 I decided not to fly again, as I could not cope with the feelings of extreme anxiety, which would usually ruin my holiday. That was until my husband and I had to plan our honeymoon. I didn’t want my fear of flying to restrict us, so we went all out and booked a 10 hour flight to Mexico! I was willing to try anything to make flying bearable, so I turned to Oaks Hypnotherapy. I was not convinced that I was lucky enough for hypnotherapy to work for me, but I was determined to give it a go, and I can now say it was one of the best decisions I have ever made! Carys was a fantastic practitioner and tried everything possible to help me. I didn’t feel particularly different after my sessions, but the proof was in the pudding when I arrived at the airport. None of the usual anxiety, shakes, tears and nausea. I felt so in control and went on to complete a 10 hour flight with relative ease. I was so amazed and still can’t quite believe I did it. I was not expecting such drastic results! This has now opened up a whole new world for me and I have Carys to thank for that. If you are considering giving hypnotherapy a go, please do, as it may just change your life.’
‘I had hypnotherapy to quit smoking, I was smoking 20 a day for 13 years, I had 2 sessions with Carys and haven’t had a cigarette since my 1st session! It works. One month today smoke free, no substitute! Great service, excellent value for money, no price on life itself, also such a lovely friendly woman, would and have recommended to others, thank you Carys so much.'
“I recently saw Carys at Oaks Hypnotherapy just before I went on holiday. I’ve had a fear of flying all my life but after just three sessions with Carys, I managed to overcome my fear. This meant I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday instead of worrying about the flight home. Highly recommended.”
“My work involves public speaking, and though I tried to manage the stress it caused, I found the nerves just mounted and I was unable to sleep the night before doing it. Dealing with this fear in sessions at Oaks Hypnotherapy meant that I was finally able to treat it as just in a day’s work!”
“Having been unable to give up smoking for many years and trying every remedy on the market, I decided to try hypnotherapy. On meeting Carys, I felt immediately at ease and relaxed, she is an extremely warm person who is very passionate about what she does. Thank you so much Carys, I haven’t smoked a single cigarette for six weeks now, and haven’t wanted to, you have changed my life!”
