An Interview with Keeley

How did you get to be a hypnotherapist?

Before I had my children, I was a Biomedical Scientist in Haematology and Blood transfusion, working in the NHS. But for a long time, I had an interest in mental health, and a desire to help others. Having suffered with anxiety myself, I understand how debilitating it can be.

After a career break to look after my children, I decided to take the plunge, and trained to be a Counsellor. I currently work part time in a Senior school, counselling the students.  Coming from a science background, I have a fascination with how the brain works, which led me to consider Hypnotherapy. I can honestly say, that training to be a hypnotherapist was the best decision that I ever made

What type of clients do you see?

The type of clients that I see are the ones who want to make positive changes in their life. I can help with a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, anger, weight management, pain management, phobias, confidence and smoking. Hypnotherapy also works really well with stress related conditions, these include insomnia and IBS.

What happens if I’ve never used Hypnotherapy before?

No need to worry, I’m here to explain the whole process to you. Hypnotherapy is an empowering and relaxing experience, and I’m here to answer any of your questions.

Are you different from other hypnotherapists?

At Inspired to Change, we practice Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. It is a very positive therapy, where we help you to find the solutions, without the need to delve into the past.

Does hypnotherapy really work?

Yes, it really does! We see from early on the difference it makes. We also have the scientific research to back this up. Hypnotherapy has been proven to work for many physical and emotional conditions. It is recommended by the NHS, as well as many doctors, nurses, counsellors and complimentary therapists and professionals.

What results can I expect?

If you are ready to make the changes, then you can expect great results! By working together, I can help you to understand the way you are feeling, and provide you with the knowledge and skills to make lasting changes.

How quickly can I expect results?

Everyone is an individual, with their own individual issues, but Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a relatively quick process. Typically, I see clients between 6-12 sessions. Phobias take less time with 3 sessions, and smoking is a single session.

What’s it like working with you?

During the free initial consultation, I can start to get to know you, and discuss what you want to achieve. Each week, we will work towards your goals step by step. By explaining how your brain works, and with the added advantage of relaxing hypnosis at the end of each session, we can work together to make those positive changes. The whole process is relaxing and rejuvenating.

Do you have any qualifications, professional membership and insurance?

Yes, I trained with the Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy training centre, and obtained my Diploma for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy ( DFSFH ) and my Hypnotherapy Practioner Diploma (HPD)

My membership with the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy requires me to keep up to date with training and supervision, and to abide by their codes and ethics.

I have full public 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 07846 656 019.

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 07846 656 019. To discuss your situation and what you would like to achieve just get in touch!

Andrew in Kettering

“I was struggling with confidence and a general negative outlook on life. I feared work meetings and having to stand up to give speeches and I realised that I needed to try to turn my life around.

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 was having issues with confidence, low self esteem, alcohol and generally being healthy.

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

“I don’t think there is anyone who wouldn’t benefit in some way or another from seeing Caroline! She has helped me to regain my self confidence and enthusiasm for life which had been gradually worn away through life’s daily trials. I have become more organised and have realised that negative beliefs are only beliefs which can be changed if you really want to change them.

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.”
