Carol HicksonHypnotherapy therapist
I am the author of The Resilience Template - 7 Steps to Improve Your Mental Health. I have over twenty years’ experience working with young people and adults and offer a gentle holistic approach to helping clients resolve their issues. If you are living with anxiety and stress, debilitated by chronic pain, dealing with fears and phobias, finding sleep difficult, struggling with addiction, coping with low self-esteem or have lost confidence at work or in your personal life contact me for a free consultation to see if I can help.
I use Clinical Hypnotherapy, EFT, ACT Therapy, Life Coaching, Mindfulness and Reiki either singly or in combination. Life has ups and downs but at times we can feel overwhelmed and find ourselves stuck in the downs. I can give you tools to use independently to combat the triggers and symptoms you may be facing.
I experienced childhood trauma and score highly on the ACE questionnaire, this has left me highly motivated to help everybody shake off the residual issues that a challenging upbringing often leaves behind.
I have personal experience of resolving insomnia, I suffered with chronic insomnia for 4 years; I know how exhausted and helpless it leaves you feeling. They were hard times but I learnt a lot along the way.
I also understand the difficulties of living with chronic pain. I have five prolapsed discs in my neck and lumbar region, a diagnosis of Dystonia but am now pain free. I want to help you find relief too. Physical pain is often exacerbated by stress and psychological pain.
