An Interview with Cathy
How did you get to be a hypnotherapist?
I’ve worked in a number of jobs that have always involved working and caring for people. I’ve worked for the NHS, social services, probation and a homeless charity and am now qualified as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist.
I decided that I needed a career change and qualified as a massage therapist where we were taught to understand how the body and mind responds, as massage has physiological and psychological effect. It was easy to see physical changes and over time I began to realise the effect on the mind, when people said that they always felt better able to cope after massage and that they felt happier and more positive following their treatment. This started a whole new way of thinking and I decided I needed to know more.
My daughter told me her friend had just qualified as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and how much she had enjoyed the course. So I contacted CPHT and began my training in September 2019 and have been working since then gaining my qualification. I now have a number of clients and it is fantastic to see the changes they have made to move forward and find their own solutions to their problems.
What type of clients do you see?
I see a number of clients with various concerns from depression, anxiety, or anger issues, weight and pain management, weight management, smoking cessation and many other issues.
People come to see me from all walks of life from NHS workers to those who run their own business’s, from shop workers to management consultants.
What happens if I’ve never used Hypnotherapy before?
That is absolutely fine, during your initial consultation I will take you through everything you need to know about how we work. We work with trance which is a perfectly natural state we go into every day and more than once a day so your mind will accept this relaxation state easily. Together we will show you how to train your brain to deal with situations that at one time would caused you stress or anxiety to deal with it in a calm, positive and relaxed way.
Are you different from other hypnotherapists?
At Inspired To Change we use Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, a therapy that helps you find your own solutions to your concerns and teaches you techniques you can continue to use throughout your life. I will help you understand how to change how your brain deals with situations that would once have caused you stress or anxiety so you can deal with the situation in a positive, calm, confident and relaxed manner.
Does hypnotherapy really work?
Yes! We will work together at your pace and providing you are willing and ready to find the solutions to enable you to move forward then it will work.
What results can I expect?
It is important that you you want to change and control your emotions so you can move forward in a positive, calm and determined manner. We will work together to show you how you can take control of your emotions and concerns to enable you to move towards your goals. If you are determined and ready to achieve your goals you will.
How quickly can I expect results?
At Inspired to Change we pride ourselves in working with you to help you achieve your goals in a time scale that suits you. Some people will take as little time as 6-10 weeks. For phobias it is three sessions, unless we need to work on decreasing your stress levels first. Smoking cessation is a one off session.
What’s it like working with you?
To start with you will come for a free Initial Consultation were we will discuss what you want to achieve. I will then give a detailed explanation as to how the brain works and how you can begin to achieve your goals. I will then give you a guided relaxation recording to listen to each night which will help the process. We will then meet once a week to assess how you are doing and help you move on to a more relaxed, confident and forward thinking way.
Do you have any qualifications, professional membership and insurance?
Yes I trained with CPHT to obtain a Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) and a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH). I am a member of Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and National Council for Hypnotherapists both of which require me to keep up to date with with training and any new legislation that is brought in. I also have full pubic liability insurance.
OK, I know I want to work with you. How do we get started?
It is so simple – just give me a call, drop me a text or email and then we can book your free initial consultation. My number is 07766 016460.
If I’m still not quite sure, is there a way for me to sample your work at low cost to see if it is the right solution for me?
Sure. By offering the free initial consultation you have plenty of opportunity to confirm that you want to work with me on your issue or goal.
How do I pay?
You will pay at each session by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
OK I’m ready to do this, but I just have a couple more questions. Can I call you?
Absolutely! My number is 07766 016460. To discuss your situation and what you would like to achieve just get in touch!
Andrew in Kettering
Caroline was so understanding of the person I was and guided me to be the better ‘me’ and for that I am forever grateful. I am a more rounded individual now with massively increased confidence and more positive outlook on life.
If you feel you have hit an issue in your life which keeps recurring and you feel generally unhappy then it’s time to look to someone to bring you out of this negativity. Hypnotherapy is the key!”
Marisa in Northamptonshire
I found hypnotherapy with Caroline really good, she made me look at things in a different, more positive perspective and I feel confident in sticking to what I want to achieve going forward. I am now more confident, I have more control over alcohol and being more health conscious. I’m more positive in general and not beating myself up so much if I’m not perfect all the time.
If you’re thinking of using hypnotherapy try it! It will definitely benefit you and give you a different, more positive outlook on how to achieve your goals.”
Sarah in St Neots
Caroline has erased years of worry which had built up in my subconscious mind which was then impacting on my physical ability to do things I want to do. Caroline is a fabulous hypnotherapist whose professional, caring, insightful approach allows her to help you get to the crux of your issues and overcome them.”
