Hypnotherapist | Counsellor
Hi I'm Carole, counsellor and hypnotherapist
For Years I worked in the foster system, supporting families in crisis but I wanted more. I dreamed of being able to help these families on a deeper level so they were able to break free from the cycles they were often caught up in.
I've always been a people person, with friends and family often telling me their problems and I was always being told that I should be a counsellor. It seemed the perfect solution, so I began my training and that was over 19 years ago.
As part of my training, I went to work with Cruse Bereavement care, who help with grief and loss. This began my specialism in this area. I have experienced traumatic loss myself and even saw a therapist and was unable to open up. This has really influenced how I work with my clients because I understand how hard it is to be honest about how your feeling with a stranger.
The hypnotherapy training came later, and I love how quickly it can get to the heart of a problem without having to dig through the past and rake over old feelings.
I love that I can offer a unique combination of therapies and my experience to my clients, meaning that they get exactly the help they need.
When I'm not working you will find me outside in nature. Walking, bird watching, in fact anything that gets me outside is a big yes from me.
If you would like to know more about working with me or have questions about whether I can help you please get in touch.
As a counsellor with over 19 years experience, I can help you transform how you're feeling. I have extensive experience in the foster system, working with families as well as working with agencies that provide support and counselling for grief as well as working with adults and children with a wide range of problems.
I use many techniques and humanistic approaches to support you. I provide a safe space built on trust and understanding to enable you to explore your feelings and work with solutions.
I use a Humanistic approach in my counselling work. My aim is to relate to my clients with honesty and congruence. I offer a service that embraces diversity. I offer flexible appointment times, a confidential healing space, easy parking and a disabled friendly ground floor room.
Qualifications and Skills
I was having problems with sleep probably due to my stress at work. I thought I would try hypnotherapy. Carole spent time talking and listening to me before she even started the actual trance work. I found it relaxing. I did need a few appointments but gradually my sleep began to improve. This is so much better now. We recorded the session on my phone so that during the night I could listen and it would help me to drift back into the sleep that I so needed.
Services available from Hypnotherapy Fix
Do you wish you could feel differently ? Sick of carrying around all these emotions or maybe you're feeling numb and want to change that.
Here at Hypnotherapy Fix, I can help you with counselling, hypnotherapy and specialist grief counselling -and sometimes a mixture of these to give you the exact help and support you need.
Working with me gives you a place to offload all those feelings, help shift your state and give you techniques that you can use at home, no matter what situations arise in your life.
It's hard. We're never shown how to cope with how we feel. We're often taught to push it down and ignore it, but those feelings need to be acknowledged otherwise they try harder and harder to get you to pay attention. That's what's causing you to feel the way you do right now.
Don't worry though because I have over 12 years experience working with clients and I know that you can change how you feel.
How does it Work ?
I use a solution-focused approach, which means we want to see an end result, not just get you to continue in therapy forever. I can give you an idea of how many sessions you are likely to need when we first chat and the best news is that most of my clients start to see a difference in how they feel from the first session.
Sessions are held face to face and the costs are :
£60.00 session Hypnotherapy
£45.00 session Counselling
Fees are payable by bank transfer prior to your appointment.
Hypnotherapy Fix requires 48 hours notice of cancellation. Otherwise the full fee will be charged.
I offer a combination of treatments, depending on the problems you bring to the therapy room. I can also use Reiki to help you relax. You can find more about my Reiki here. www.reikiservices.co.uk
Looking for counselling to become the person that You Want To Be?
We don't always have the answers and counselling is a great way to explore what's happening to you, how you feel and help you find solutions to change.
It might be because of a difficult relationship, that you keep experiencing the same problems over and over or that you have something you need to let go of.
It might be something new that's just happened or it might be because of a traumatic experience that you've never spoken about, but need to deal with.
If you have something you'd like to feel differently about or something you'd like to change then counselling could be for you.
It's a time to talk, open up, vent, offload, and release all those thoughts and feelings you've been bottling up and see the difference that makes to how you feel.
Counselling can be helpful for a huge range of problems including self esteem, confidence, abuse, relationship issues,anger, depression, and grief/ bereavement. Would you like to feel differently?
I use a range of techniques in these sessions and we review your progress in each session, so you can be sure you're moving forwards.
Counselling helps you to let go of old feelings and experiences and find new strategies to cope with life, so you'll feel stronger and more like you again.
Call me on 07906065694 to get started and I will call you back the same day.
Working with Children
As well as working with adults, I also work with children. Whether it's school refusal, fitting into a new blended family, not being able to cope with their emotions or struggling with a trobled start in life, counselling can be very beneficial for children. I've worked with families and young people in the foster system for years and have lots of experience of working with this age group.
We would agree a mutual time. The session would be for one hour. During this first hour we would decide if we can work together. There is no obligation. This is a chance to sample how I work and how we work together. I would give you an idea of how many sessions you may require.
Losing someone is often the worst pain we ever experience, but as a society, we don't really talk about it, so we don't know how to cope. Grief can overwhelm us and the intensity of these feelings can be frightening. Counselling can't remove the pain or even help you avoid it- it's important that you feel the loss, but it can help you through the worst of times and remind you that things will get easier.
The simple act of talking can be a huge help while you're grieving. Providing you with understanding and a safe place, to be honest about how you're feeling.
Counselling can help you come to terms with your loss and help you work through the feelings you're experiencing. It also helps you find a new way of living, adjusting to life in a world without the person you have lost.
But how do you know you need grief counselling ?
Like I said, grieving is a normal process, so how do you know when it's time to seek some professional help ?
You can reach out for help at any point in your grief- there isn't a "right" time. But if you're bottling up your feelings, pretending you're okay when you're not or noticing new behaviours like bursts of anger, drinking more, not sleeping, increased stress levels or withdrawing and avoiding people then it might be time to get in touch to discuss how grief counselling could help.
I know it's hard and the thought of talking about your loss and how you're feeling might feel impossible, but having a space where you can release those feelings and let go of all that emotion is a powerful gift to give yourself.
When you're ready, I'd love to hear from you to discuss your appointment. Please call me on 07906065694
Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool to help you transform how you feel forever.
Are you ready to change how you feel forever? Wave goodbye to that behaviour you hate or the habit you can't break. So you want to switch how you're feeling or let go of those emotions you can't seem to shake?
Your thoughts control your emotions and your behaviour, so you are feeling or doing something you're not happy with then we need to look at your thoughts.
Imagine living your life in control.
Banishing bad habits, ending addictions, removing phobias. Hypnotherapy can help you do it all.
Hypnotherapy can be used for a range of problems including weight gain, anxiety and stress, stop smoking, sleep issues, motivation, confidence, flying phobias, depression, teeth grinding.
In some cases, I combine counselling and hypnotherapy as they work beautifully together to deliver powerful results, but I will discuss this with you at your first appointment.
How does it work?
Hypnotherapy isn't like you see on the TV and in the movies. It's a deeply relaxing experience where you get to close your eyes and simply listen to my voice. Going into a deeply relaxed state means your subconscious mind can open up and allow my suggestions to settle and do their work on changing your thoughts, which in turn will change your feelings, habits, and behaviours.

I felt very encouraged and at ease during my appointments with Carole. She was both professional and approachable and I felt she was genuine. I received different types of therapy from her all of which have proved to be of benefit to my life
£60 per session
£45 per session
How many sessions will it take ?
This depends on what issue you're coming to me for, but we can discuss this in more detail when you get in touch.
Will it work ?
We need to work together and you need to be open and honest with me as we move through your treatment. I will check in with how you feel regularly so you can see the difference it's making quickly.
When should I pay ?
Payment must be made, via bank transfer, before your appointment.
What if I need to cancel ?
I have a 48 hour cancellation policy. If it's less than 48 hours you will charged in full.
I've never been hypnotised before, What if it doesn't work?
Being hypnotised isn't like you see in the movies. It is just like relaxing. We will discuss whether to include hypnotherapy in your sessions and discuss any questions you might have then.
What can you help with ?
Most things. Rather than write a huge, long list here, why not phone or e mail me and let me know what you're struggling with and I can let you know if it's something I can help with.
I've never told anyone how I'm feeling. I'm worried about it.
I've seen lots of clients over the last 19 years with all sorts of problems and concerns, but everything you tell me in our sessions is confidential and I won't ever judge you for what you tell me. It really is a safe place for you to open up and offload those thoughts and feelings.
How do I book a session ?
Give me a call on 07906065694 and let's find a time that works for us both. I look forward to hearing from you.
I came to Carole for counselling I had a difficult abusive childhood. Through the appointments I was able to face the difficulties and come to terms with my situation. I experienced Carole as quite firm at times but with a warmth and understanding . This enabled me to share deep hurts and come out the other side. Carole also gave me Reiki which was so comforting.
I came to Carole for Hypnotherapy to stop smoking it was affecting my health big time. I could not believe it after just one session I never wanted to smoke another cigarette. I did not suffer the withdrawals I had read about. I really needed it to work and it did. Thanks.
I tried the Hypnotherapy because I had a fear of flying. Every year I would feel so guilty as the family wanted holidays abroad and I just could not get onto a plane. So I decided to tackle it, face the problem and find some focus. I came to Carole for the Hypnotherapy. After a few sessions I was feeling much calmer about the whole thing. Determined and calm enough to actually book a short flight. I listened to the recording as we were in the air and I coped.
