"Change is never painful, only resistance to change is painful"


Hi, my name is Carl & I'd like to welcome you to my new website.

My journey to become a professional hypnotherapist has been a long affair; After I left the Armed forces in the late 90’s I felt like a square peg in a round hole and started to suffer with anxiety. There wasn't much help back then for ex members of the Armed forces, and I do remember investing a lot of my spare time trying to get the right help. It was in my early thirties when I became very interested in Buddhism and joined a local group who held regular meditation classes. Then I spent time with Buddhist monks on retreats in the Lake District- which left a deep impression- leading me to became very philosophical.


I became well acquainted to the spiritual and self help literature aisle at my local book store then one day stumbled across hypnotherapy. After listening to the guided meditation CD - ha ha showing my age now-  which was attached to the book I became focused on hypnotherapy- The seed was quickly planted. The many benefits of hypnosis and how quickly it had helped ease my anxiety won me over. I decided later on to retrain and become a professional hypnotherapist. I enrolled with a local, well known, hypnotherapy training provider which cost me greatly; and not just financially.


After receiving my Diploma from them I soon started my own practice.  Not long into my new career I became very aware of the fact that not everyone can be helped using the model that was taught to me- no two people are the same-  helping people to help themselves & using the one-size-fits-all hypnosis scripts approach just didn't cut it. I ended up retraining and have developed into a more confident, well rounded and knowledgeable therapist who is always learning and constantly evolving.

My specialities
