Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist - Clinical Hypnotherapy

About me

Clinical Hypnotherapist and Certified Hypno-CBT practitioner. Multi-Discipline therapist specialised in treating complex traumas including PTSD.

Here’s a simple idea for you:

If you remove your fears, you will excel in what you do!

This is not a guess, but what I’ve learned after working with hundreds of clients. I have experienced working with celebrities, training senior people in corporate sales, as well as a full practice of private clients, like you.

If you want to feel happier and motivated, or to have a better life, what’s stopping you is often connected to your past events. It’s painful, because you have an idea that this loop you’re stuck in, is linked to something that previously happened to you.

To change this identity you have, requires different thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. 

We’ll work with your fear instead of working against it. You’ll be surprised when it becomes the compass to achieving what it is that you want.

So, what is it that you want? How much do you want to change?

A story about change

“Are you going back to Italy?”

“Sure, if you have a passport”

The jet plane pilot took me back to Italy an hour later. 

This is how in a week’s time, I went from being in a warzone in Tirana, moved to England and met my wife after 3 days. I went on to complete an electronics degree and then worked successfully as a sales leader; all the while I used NLP and hypnotherapy to improve their performance.

There has been a constant voice in my head with every major life challenge, my intuition speaking to me.

“Francesco, you need to change”

This happened again when I was let go from my last corporate role. I decided then that I would continue practicing these skills by helping everyone.

A secret to share with you - I’m also a work in progress.

Whatever change you need to make, it’s possible. I have been through physical and mental abuse, served as a Naval Officer for the Navy in two wars, immigrated and started my life over. I really care about showing you what is possible.

How does it work?

Working with me is not ‘on the clock’, more like continuously offering you tools and ways to improve, during and after sessions together.

Clients get:

Access to me - WhatsApp, e-mail and phone calls
Videos and resources to use after sessions
Effective results in 4-6 sessions

The best recommendation I have ever been provided! Life-changer. I wanted to start 2021 with a new outlook on life and finally address some significant trauma and loss I experienced in 2020 allowing me to go into 2021 with a calm positive mindset not a fragile anxious broken wreck. I was dubious about the therapy being all done online but actually this was amazing and allowed me to fit more naturally into my life and would be my option moving forward. My personal life journey was on hold as I was too worried about the feelings and emotions I would have to experience, and which would resurface and had quite high anxiety levels. Fast forward 6mths I think it is safe to say I am a different person both physically and emotionally and am excited about my continued journey and what I can achieve. The anxiety is at bay, I have wobbled every so often but feel like I have a great support with Francesco keeping me on the straight and narrow and have a wealth of tools and meditation to support me. He goes above and beyond for all his clients. Although my initial goal was accomplished; I have continued to work with Francesco on other areas such as giving up smoking (after 20+yrs) and am currently doing Pranic healing to compliment some medical challenges and am seeing remarkable results and changes already. I feel like I have grown significantly as an individual and look forward to the future and what is to come. Thank you Francesco, I just wanted you to update my post as my journey with Francesco has become longer and more important as I have gone through different trimester of pregnancy, and I have relied on him and Pranic healing alongside the meditation methods and tools he provided me with as my first port of call, trust and support network. More so than the NHS and my GP!! I am a very lucky new mum of a beautiful little boy Alfie, something which I truly believe Francesco helped me to achieve. He was born via c-section after which I was quite ill with sever sickness and fever; Francesco worked his magic remotely behind the scenes and within 12hrs I was back to normal and released from hospital that day. Move into 4th trimester; something they don’t warn you about and a milk shortage and a hungry 8lb 12oz sleep thief; Francesco again did a Pranic healing protocol for breast milk stimulation and within a few hours the supply was there! Francesco is truly a fantastic human and I look forward to him being a continued person in mine and Alfie’s health and lives as we navigate this new adventure together.

Superb professional and caring therapist!  High-end services combined with significant psychological and spiritual knowledge. I was able to test the Havening and Pranic Healing Therapies in particular to treat depression and chronic fatigue that had been present in my life, for many years. The Havening Techniques are a new therapeutic method that helps people to overcome their emotional disturbances and to develop their resilience. Incorporating the latest advances in neuroscience, this method alleviates fear-based disorders and imparts to the mind the perception that it is safe and prepares it for better life experiences. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND FRANCESCO CARCO !!!

Emma Mansfield May 2021
I cannot recommend Francesco highly enough. I reached out to him at the beginning of 2021 following a bereavement which left me feeling highly anxious and suffering from depression. Right from our initial consultation, I felt safe, supported and reassured that I had found someone who genuinely cared about creating a positive outcome for me. The results were game changing, and I continue to use several of the techniques that he shared with me in my daily life. I achieved more in 6 weeks with Francesco than I had in over 6 years. He has fully enabled me to leave negative elements of my past behind and move forward feeling empowered to live my life to the full. Heartfelt thanks Francesco.

Before i go into detail about my own journey, I want to point out that Francesco possesses a quality all therapists should have, but sadly most don't: he really, genuinely cares. About you as a person, about your healing and wellbeing and about making others feel good. I think that's a crucial aspect to consider when looking for a therapist. You dont want someone who will drop little breadcrumbs of wisdom along a long and windy path, so that you rely on them to find your way and therefore becomes a crutch, but someone who will consider all avenues he knows well and find the quickest and best road for you and act as your chaperone/guide until you reach your destination. That's what Francesco did for me. He has an arsenal of skills that he can custom depending on your situation, in order to achieve the best results. For me, that was a mixture of Havening Technique, a little hypnosis with a deeper amount of reiki healing, distant as I live in LA. I have Hashimoto's and Francesco was able to do the healing specifically based on my ailment, caring enough (and knowledgeable enough) to ask for more information regarding my condition (if my thyroids fluctuate between high/low etc) to ensure he is sending the right amount of energy to the right parts of the body (i think, sorry i dont know the technicalities 100%!). In addition to this, he is very sensitive in picking up energies in the chakras and other possible reasons that could be causing/worsening the condition (guilt/suppressed trauma etc). He then dug into this further and used what was discovered through discussions as a guide for the havening/hypnosis in order to snip the cause of my ailment in the bud. Unlike other styles of therapy, by going to the root you no longer have to keep going back again and again. After a few in person sessions, as well distant healing, by body began to feel much more peaceful and i began to feel a sense of homeostasis again. The proof is in the pudding - my blood tests came back almost normal levels. To give you an idea i went from my doctor telling me I absolutely *needed* to be on medication (which i denied) to advising I no longer need it. In the space of a few months! Alongside my diet and lifestyle changes, Francesco truly helped my mind and body to heal, and life is good again. Thank you!

I have been using Francesco's services for a few years now. The latest engagement was to support my anxiety pre and post heart surgery. Francesco helped me to face the open-heart operation with ease and worked with me to recover quickly afterwards. He taught me how to use havening techniques that helped immensely to manage my anxiety. Months later, I was rushed to hospital again for endocarditis where the surgeons had to rebuild my heart. I do not remember the details, but my wife called Francesco post operation as I was so deeply scared and depressed to go over an even longer rehabilitation that I refused to see my wife and kids for days. During that night Francesco applied Pranic Healing Protocols to firstly rebalance my emotional state, then to kick my body into recovery mode. I woke up the following day as a new man, fully energised and with an immense will to live. I faced the rehabilitation process surprisingly fast, supported by Francesco all the way. In just over two months I was back at work like if nothing had happened. If you are sceptic about the Healing Process or his Healing Ability, DON’T BE. Go with the flow and disproof yourself of your limiting beliefs. To add to the mysticism, I live in Italy, and he healed me from the UK while I was asleep. We can heal ourselves and Francesco guided me through the process with care and compassion. Immensely grateful for his healing, help and support throughout the entire process. He is definitely my family and friends’ therapist for life!! Thank you, Francesco!

I highly recommend Francesco. He is genuine, caring and make you feel extremely comfortable from the initial consultation. I reached to him, as I was forced to start to have camera meetings at work. My lack of confidence and self-esteem was overpowering me. From that day my work announced it was compulsory to be on the camera, I could not even sleep. I was sick of the thought of it. Then I decided it was time to look for help but I did not have much time. I just had one face to face session with Francesco on a Sunday and Monday morning, it was like a miracle how my confidence had increased. I was not worried to show my face and I was very calm. I am going back for further treatments for sure, thank you so much Francesco.

I heard about Francesco through a credible source. This was my first experience with (Havening Techniques) this kind of therapy. I was impressed that he offered free therapy for Students and Unemployed weekly. During our free phone consultation, he was sincere, and I thought, "He speaks my language!" I knew that he could help me. We didn't meet in person, but through Zoom and our sessions were still highly effective. He's always been flexible with my schedule and our 8-hour time difference-UK and Southern California. It's been 4 months and I've experienced a huge breakthrough in my mental health and stability! Francesco is genuine, he's knowledgeable, and his care and his love for helping others is demonstrated through his work.
