About Carrie

I am a Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist and I trained at the renowned Clifton Hypnotherapy Practice which was founded by David Newton (one of the most experienced and respected practitioners in the UK) and is at the forefront of modern day hypnotherapy practice with the support and guidance through the work of experienced hypnotherapists.  My training was at CPHT Peterborough by Gary Johannes.  The Clifton Practice concentrates on both expertise and experience and uses the most up to date research of neuroscience, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and clinical hypnotherapy techniques to promote positive changes.  I continue to receive regular supervision and continue my professional development. I have achieved my DHP (Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy), the Diploma is accredited by AfSFH (Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy), NCH (National Council for Hypnotherapy) and NCFE.  I am a member of AfSFH and NCH, and hold an enhanced DBS certificate.

I take immense pride in providing the best level of care that I can and with this in mind I will continue to study and broaden my skills  by attending courses and workshops as part of my commitment to continuous professional development. 

I have always been fascinated with the mind and body connection and the power of your mind to heal and after having experienced solution focused hypnotherapy myself and seeing the results that can be achieved I wanted to help others to make a change in their lives.  I had recently made redundant and decided that it was time to retrain.  After a lot of research I chose the Clifton Practice and Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.  I felt that the time was right to follow my passion and desire to make a change for the better for others. 

I have always worked in a high pressure role within a busy financial services environment and understand the stresses and demands placed on individuals.  I have a teenager and I am aware of the stresses placed on, not only adults, within their working life and the strains of being a parent but that there are also demands on children and young people from exam stress to general anxiety. 

Although I cannot guarantee outcomes, I have had excellent results with people reaching their goals and achieving the outcomes they yearn for by utilising their own skills, strengths and resources.   I love seeing the changes that can happen in someone’s life, and the positive progresses that they can achieve.  Your subconscious mind accounts for 95% to 99% of your thinking capability and is immensely powerful at assisting the body to heal. 

Please contact me in order to take your first step on the road to getting your life the way that you want it or if you have any questions or would like to book an initial consultation.
